A prayer for strength & Healing
Teach me always to believe in my power to return to life, to hope, and to You, God,
No matter what pains I have endured,
No matter how far I have strayed from You.
Give me the strength to resurrect my weary spirit.
Revive me, God, so I can embrace life once more
in joy, in passion, in peace.
Tamara & Friend
In silence find a comfortable position on the bench you are sitting on and abandon yourself to the illumination of the Divine Love! Empty your mind of all the thoughts, good and bad; let them go away from you, let them go far away from you! Feel a loving energy entering your body now! This energy relaxes you; it relaxes all your organs, it relaxes all your muscles and all your nerves and all your blood vessels! Feel the peace and harmony that is surrounding you! You are now ready to embark on a journey of healing and revitalisation, a journey prepared just for you!
A beautiful zebra with shining white and silver stripes appears in front of you and invites you to climb over his back. It takes you higher and higher through many different energy bands. Each energy band has its own colour. The colours are strong and can only be described as magnificent!
You go first through the Red band of energy. This energy wraps around you very tight and gives you a feeling of Determination. Determination to accomplish what you have started in your life or determination to begin what you would like to achieve.
In front of you now is a beautiful Orange energy. As this energy enters your astral body it revitalises you with a feeling of wellbeing. You now feel strong and ready to overcome any difficulty you might meet in your path. You feel light and protected.
A shiny Yellow energy is in front of you now and starts to penetrate your body. It fills you with a great feeling of Happiness. All the sadness and all the disappointments you went through in your life they are now gone! You are now feeling free, you are happy and you can see things more clearly now.
A great Green energy is approaching you and is surrounds you with a beautiful and warm Love. You know now that you have arrived at your destination.
Look carefully in front of you, what do you see? A shiny white figure is approaching you; he is smiling to you, he is happy to be with you again, you know this is your guide who was anxiously waiting for you. You descend from the zebra’s back and your guide welcomes you with a big and loving hug. He is taking you by the hand and asks you where you want to go. You are free to choose. You might want to go high up on a mountain, or down by the sea, or by the lake, the choice is yours. It is a beautiful and warm day, the sun is shining and there are no clouds in the sky! You relax sitting in a nice spot near your guide. This is the opportunity you were waiting for, to sit and chat with your guide, to ask questions and get answers to the things you were worried about. Open your heart and tell your guide all your worries, all your dreams, your desires, your hopes and be assured that all your questions will be answered; you will be given the advice that is best for you.
In this place of Love and Healing your thoughts are now going to all your loved ones, family and friends who need healing and support and whose names are in our Healing Book, you want to help them too to experience the healing you have just experienced. You present them to the Guides and you ask that they extend to them too these healing energies. Bring these friends in your mind now and send them your love and healing….
We thank the Divine and all our Guides for the Healing that was extended to all of us today. We pray that we will be able to release all the negativity we accumulated and allow our physical, mental and spiritual bodies to heal themselves.
The zebra now comes near you and with a push with its head tells you that the time has come for you to return back to your physical level. You thank your guide for the this beautiful and healing experience he prepared for you and with his blessing you climb once more over the zebra’s back. You slowly leave the special place you were in and start going down and down. You go first through the green layer of energy followed by the Yellow, then through the Orange, and finally through the Red. You are now standing in the middle of this hall! Slowly make your way back to your seat.
Now you feel heavier and heavier. Feel your feet touching the ground, feel your hands resting on your laps, feel your breath getting faster and your heart beating stronger! When you are ready open your eyes and welcome back.
There is no charge for love
A farmer had some puppies he needed to sell, so he painted a sign, and set about nailing it to a post at the side of the road passing his property. As he was finishing this, he felt a tug at his overalls, and looked down to see a little boy.
“Mister,” the little boy said, I want to buy one of your puppies.
“Well,” said the farmer “these puppies come from very good parents and cost a lot of money!”
With tears in his eyes the little boy reached deep into his pocket and pulled out a handful of change. “I have 39 cents,” he said, “is that enough for a look?”
“Sure,” said the farmer, and let out a whistle, “here Dolly” he called. Out from the doghouse and down the rump came Dolly, followed by 4 little balls of fur, and raced down to the fence.
The little boy pressed his face delighted up against the chain wire fence, his eyes dancing with delight. As the dogs made their way to the fence, the boy noticed something stirring at the doghouse. Slowly a much smaller puppy slid down the ramp and awkwardly made its way down to the fence, hobbling noticeably, but doing its best to catch up.
“I want that one,” the little boy said pointing to the runt.”
The farmer knelt down beside the boy and said kindly, “you don’t want that one son.” he said “he would never be able to run and play with you like the others could.”
With that, the little boy rolled up his trousers’ leg, revealing steel callipers bracing his leg above the knee, and terminating at a specially made shoe. The boy said, “you see I can’t run well either, and he will need someone who understands.”
With tears in his eyes the farmer reached over the fence, carefully picked up the puppy, and placed it in the little boy’s arms.
“How much,” the little boy asked
“There is no charge” the farmer said “There is no charge for love.”
The secret to a happy marriage!
At a Church in Toronto, they have weekly husband's marriage seminars.
At the session last week, the priest asked Giuseppe, who said he was approaching his 50th wedding anniversary, to take a few minutes and share some insight into how he had managed to stay happily married to the same woman all these years.
Giuseppe replied to the assembled husbands, "Well, I've tried to treat her nice, spend my money on her, but best of all is, I took her to Italy for our 25th anniversary!"
The priest responded, "Giuseppe, you are an amazing inspiration to all the husbands here! Please tell us what you are planning for your wife for your 50th anniversary?"
Giuseppe proudly replied, "I am going to go and bring her back.”
