Wow! Another belief hits the dirt! I got rid of “It’s better to give than to receive”, and now I’m letting go of “Prophecy always comes true.”
The first I changed to “I am a fantastic receiver, and I am a fabulous giver”. The second, I changed to “Prophecies that fit this age come true; all others fade away.”
The accepted definition is that a prophecy is a declaration made by a prophet and that it is a divinely inspired prediction, instruction or exhortation; therefore, it is from God and has to be honored. Sometimes this honoring takes the form of deliberating choosing the actions that will force the prophecy to manifest instead of letting life unfold in its usual way.
However, prophecy is also what fortune tellers, psychics and ordinary people like you and I do when we foretell or predict what is to come.
For example, in the last few months, both print and electronic media has predicted over and over that those who are unemployed wouldn’t be able to get paid employment in today’s economy. Some of us believed these statements and have proved them to be correct. Others of us got work and proved the statements to be incorrect.
For example, some of us have family members, even our own parents, predict that we wouldn’t graduate high school. These words, spoken by people we respect and love, are difficult to disobey, but some of us do. We graduate high school; we manage to overturn every negative prediction made to us or about us. We allow these prophecies to become dust.
To prophesy (-sai) means to foretell. Nearly all groups have some type of prophecy or prediction about the end of times. Almost all of these include mass suffering, famine, drought and war.
My question is, “Why?” Why are we giving these prophecies attention and energy when we know they can become false?
This question can only be answered with the help of the angels.
Angels of all of us
Angels of all of us,
We are grateful that we know you exist and that your great pleasure is to help us understand and work with the Invisible.
We give thanks that we can sense you around us; we know you are near us always. You never desert or ignore us. For this, we are grateful.
This idea of changing or ignoring prophecy is new for us. It is, also, a new idea that we can create our own prophecy.
We ask that we become aware of all the many prophecies spoken over and about us. Once we are aware, we ask for guidance in selecting those that offer the highest and best for all.
We ask for courage to turn from those that are negative, destructive and evil, and we ask for the confidence to create prophecies of our own, ones that suit who and what we are at this point in our evolution.
We ask to understand that we human beings have evolved into something grander and more capable than those for whom the ancient prophecies were spoken. We easily let go of what no longer fits us.
We rejoice in this day and age, in who we are now and in our ability to see a future of growth, joy and harmony.
We give thanks for all that was, is and will be.
And so it is.
