Prayer works except when it doesn’t. How can this be? Once we realize that our prayer isn’t being answered, what can we do to remedy the situation?
Spiritual leaders are constantly telling us that prayers are always answered and the answer is always “Yes”.
Our personal experience tells us otherwise. Even if we take into account that the Universe does things on UT time (Universe Time), not all prayers are answered.
If this is happening to you—the job, the money, the relationship, the health you’ve prayed about isn’t appearing, the first thing you need to do is check your use of the Law of Mental Equivalence.
Law of Mental Equivalence
The Law of Mental Equivalence is the providing of an image of what is sought to the mind so that this image exists within us, not just words, but a clear, detailed, precise picture of what is desired and its accompanying feelings.
This is what vision boards help us do.
What we want to bring forth starts within, with a picture; the more detailed the image, the more specific the image, the better; the more precise the feelings associated with the bringing forth of this image, the better.
If you are praying about finding a job, describe that job in great detail. Include its location, bosses, workers, the work atmosphere and environment, the parking or transportation methods, the hours you want to work, the salary, the benefits like paid health, life and dental insurance.
Talk about what you want to gain from this job. Consider such things as skills, contacts and experience.
List what you want to give to this job and that you want to be appreciated and valued for the gift of your talent, skill, time and energy.
Give the same detailed description of the result you are praying for on each topic: relationships, health, wealth or career.
This description must include textures, colors, shapes, smells, and:
- your definitions of words like success, health, prosperity. The Universe wants to know what success—getting what you’re praying about—looks like, feels like and acts like to you. It wants to know exactly what you mean by health. When prosperity shows up in your life, how will your life be? The same with relationships or other topics.
You will be more successful when you give the Universe a blueprint to follow and a mold to fill.
- listing the amounts of what is desired: how much money, how many pounds, how large the home, how much the salary increase or offer. This is being specific.
The Universe wants to know the amount you think represents prosperity or wealth or more than enough or the overflow of all good. Remember to include the amount of savings when praying for prosperity or abundance.
- naming the feelings which will come when your prayer is answered. Include feelings like safety, certainty, personal peace and satisfaction.
Take time to do this because it does take time. As you become more aware of what you want, add to your description or subtract from it.
And, as always, ask the Angels of all of Us for help.
Angels of all of Us
Angels of all of Us,
You know the desire we are seeking. Please help us describe it in great detail. Help us identify and name the feelings this desire generates. Please make us aware of everything we haven’t considered about this desire.
We thank you.
And so it is.
