It goes a little something like this. Science is slowly-rapidly finding it's way to spirituality, but don't tell a scientist that within puking range. As technological advances allows us to look further into the microcosm and further out to the macrocosm, we'll prove that the one IS the other.
Take a look at these photos... on the left: mouse neurons... on the right: your Universe (computer simulated formation of, rather):
Fringe physicist Nassim Haramein claims to have mathmatically proven the entire mass of the Universe is contained within every single atom:
What the hell does all of this mean? Um... we are God?
Time is not real. We know that, right? Nothing is fixed within this Multiverse we call home. The mere coordinates of a particle can only be stated as a stream of potentialities as shown again and again by experiments in quantum physics. All possibilities exist at once.
And, now for the leap: Time does not exist. The past IS the present IS the future. There is only NOW.
This does not mean we shouldn't do the work of cleaning up our past. Not at all. We experience linear time for a very good reason. Cleaning up programming from past conditioning, traumas, regrets, etc. is crucial to creating (or choosing, rather) our future. I, for one, have tons of fears standing in the way of allowing myself to choose my own personal Heaven on Earth and am diligently working in many ways to clear that nonsense out of my reality.
Prayer is much more effective when we trade that begging stuff: "Please help me get _____," and that holy deal stuff: "I will never ____ again if you _____" with the gratitude, awareness, choice, and ATTENTION stuff. Gratefully put your attention on the future you want because it is happening right NOW. We simply much choose which life in the multiverse of infinite lives we want to experience.
This might work:
"Spirit, thank you for showing me I'm meant to be an astrologer. Please help me find clients so I won't starve." [Intention]
This is working:
"I AM a powerful, talented, helpful, successful astrologer, guide, and healer rightfully manifesting abundance in service to Spirit." [ATTENTION]
Thank you Spirit for consistently leading me to truth through crazy ass synchronicity. I AM following the branches to the trunk and rooting myself into beautiful reality.
