A Shinto (Japanese) Prayer for Peace
God our Father, Creator of the world,
please help us to love one another.
Make nations friendly with other nations;
make all of us love one another like brothers.
Help us to do our part to bring peace in the
world and happiness to all men.
Tamara & Friend
With kindness and compassion in your heart slowly close your eyes and let your mind relax! Empty your mind of all thoughts, of all unhealthy thoughts and fill it with energies of peace and harmony! Allow now these peaceful and harmonious energies travel through all your body and revitalise all your organs! They fill you with strength and courage!
See yourself now wrapped by these loving energies which take you higher and higher, away from this hall! They take you through many different layers of beautiful and colourful energies.
See the shining Red energy penetrating inside your body and bringing you a feeling of success, helping you to feel happy living in this overbearing world!
A magnificent Orange coloured energy wraps around you now filling you with a strong will to continue walking in your destined path with clarity and understanding!
See now a cloud of a Yellow coloured energy coming towards you. As soon as this yellow energy enters your body it cleanses it from any stress and anxiety that you might have and it fills you with a feeling of peace and harmony!
As soon as you exit from that Yellow energy a Green one approaches you. It fills you with a strong belief, with Trust and Faith that you are always loved and protected by our\ Supreme Energy of Love! A great heaviness has fallen from your shoulders. You feel light!
To your big surprise you find yourself flying higher and higher away from the coloured energy levels. You keep going higher and higher till you reach a shining White place. Look around you. This place is full of beautiful Angels, all dressed in white and gold. They smile to you. They welcome you to their world; a place of unconditional love! They know you. They are with you from the moment you were born and they will stay with you till you decide to leave your physical world and return back home.
Feel their great energy of love, of respect and gratitude they have for you, because through you they too have learned many lessons and progressed. They are talking to you. Please stop and listen! They tell you that life is eternal and you can learn and progress from wherever you are. You can learn in the Astral plain and you can also return to the physical for more learning. That is up to you to decide.
You now feel stronger, you feel loved and in the eyes of God you know you are an important soul! The Angels are now giving you a present, they give you the opportunity to see and meet your Guide. You might see your Guide during this meditation or you can ask to see your Guide in your dream. With love before you go to bed ask to meet your guide in your dream and rest assured that this will happen when the time is right for you.
With so much love around you thoughts are coming in your mind, thoughts of your dear ones who are sick and could not be here with us today and whose names appear in our Absent Healing Book you ask the Divine to let them too experience these loving and healing energies 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 you Supreme Energy of Love for the healing energies we have all experienced. We pray that with your help we will be able now to heal our bodies, our minds and our souls!
The Angels now tell you that the time has come for your return back to your physical plain. With happiness and joy in your heart you now thank all the Angels for the healing they extended to you and to all your dear ones. With their blessing you start your descend. You leave from shining white place and slowly you start going down and down. You go again first through the Green layer, then through the Yellow one, followed by the Orange and finally through the Red.
Now you feel heavier and heavier. A strong attraction brings you down to this very hall. You find yourself sitting on the bench you have started from. Your feet are touching the ground, you feel your hands on your laps, your breath is stronger now! When you are ready open your eyes and welcome back.
Once upon a time, a man found a butterfly that was starting to hatch from its cocoon. He sat down and watched the butterfly for hours as it struggled to force itself through a tiny hole. Then, it suddenly stopped making progress and looked like it was stuck.
Therefore, the man decided to help the butterfly out. He took a pair of scissors and cut off the remaining bit of the cocoon. The butterfly then emerged easily, although it had a swollen body and small, shrivelled wings.
The man thought nothing of it, and he sat there waiting for the wings to enlarge to support the butterfly. However, that never happened. The butterfly spent the rest of its life unable to fly, crawling around with small wings and a swollen body.
Despite the man’s kind heart, he didn’t understand that the restricting cocoon and the struggle needed by the butterfly to get itself through the small hole were God’s way of forcing fluid from the body of the butterfly into its wings to prepare itself for flying once it was free.
Dear friends our struggles in life help to develop our strengths. Without struggles, we never grow and get stronger, so it’s important for us to tackle challenges on our own, and not rely on help from others all the time.
A priest and a bus driver lived together and one day they also together died.
They went to St. Peter standing before heaven gate. He allows the bus driver to go to one of the highest heavens, but the priest has to wait.
He waits for a long time and finally goes to St. Peter and asks:
“Why could the bus driver go to the highest heaven and I, who all my life spoke about God, have to wait for such a long time?”
St. Peter said:
“When you were speaking to the people at your church everybody was sleeping; but when that bus driver was driving everybody prayed!”
