I was praying for humanity this morning and as I was affirming God’s goodness and care, I realized that God also protects each individual consciousness from thoughts of depression, bad memories and fear.
I had an experience several weeks ago that showed me that what we would term our experience is actual our consciousness.
I was lying in bed with a cold, and I was praying and affirming different ideas about God, divine Love and my relationship to this ever-present Source of Love. I’ve found that allowing a greater understanding of God in my consciousness brings healing, even from physical ailments.
I was listening to an online church service. And because I was participating in this church service virtually, I became so aware of how our experience really is in consciousness. I realized that there is no “over there” and “over here”. In other words, we don’t live in a world of things, we live in a world of thought. God is the only real consciousness and we live, move and have our being in His (or Her or It’s) consciousness. So the only real “place” is God.
This thought was such a relief to me.; and I saw that I could always have what I need because I am always dwelling in divine consciousness. There is no time, separation or lack in this consciousness. There is only eternal, ever-present good, peace, and harmony.
I was relieved and refreshed by this new insight. And as a result the physical symptoms of a cold abated. I was healed and ready to return to work the next day.
This experience helped me see that I can pray for the consciousness of all humanity and know that a realization of our oneness with divine consciousness is natural and normal to each of us. This gives us peace, a sense of family, harmony and love that can’t be taken away by “outside” circumstances.
