Prayer of Intention (Chapter 14 Forgiveness)

This original prayer of intention is found in Chapter 14 of Pray Without Ceasing, Essays and Godwinks, by Robin P. Currie.

“Jesus, please help me forgive, and release all debts owed to me, so I may be free. With Your help, I will ask forgiveness from those who I have hurt. I pray that they release the debts that are owed to them. Allow my heart to expand and open so love and forgiveness can take root and grow. Help me to forgive myself, as You have forgiven me. Fill me with a new willingness to release myself and others, so we may carry on in peace and love. It is my intention to focus on forgiveness until I can feel the weight of trespasses, both mine and those of others, lift and dissolve. Thank You for guiding me as I heal all wounds of unforgiveness.
Amen.”

A word about trust: God and Lawyers

Image by kai kalhh of Germany on Pixabay

This morning’s inspiration is about trust. In Pray Without Ceasing, Essays and Godwinks, I wrote the mantra as follows: “It Is Safe to Trust”.

You may have questions. Trust? Trust what? Or trust who?Trust Yourself! We have been programmed and conditioned, or at least many of us have been. We are taught that we are inept, incapable, inferior, and a whole host of other shortcomings. We are taught to be dependant, to need, and to cling to other people, or power structures that are perceived as the sole provision for our specific need. Not so.

Attorneys certainly are the subject of numerous bad jokes. Their trustworthiness is nearly always in question. But what do we do in a moment of error, when we are in some legal trouble? Or what happens when we are victims of an injustice, or even a crime? What about when we are entering into an agreement, or purchasing a home? We call a lawyer. Why? Because they are the experts.

Let’s think for a moment about the pharmaceutical companies. Especially as of late, truths are being revealed that portray these developers, manufacturers, and even prescribers as quite sinister. But what do we do when experiencing symptoms of an illness? We visit, we fill our prescriptions, and we take our medicine.

Where am I going with this? Sounds weird, I know. But what do we do when we are living our day to day lives? Every morning, who do we turn to for advice, guidance, or even criticism? Or in the midst of a crisis–illness, loss of a loved one, employment issues, or even a crisis of faith–do we turn to the expert? Who is the expert?

We are our own guidance system, inspired through faith and connection to our divine source. Some holy books speak of the Holy Trinity. Yet perhaps the sacred three is within each of us. We are physical, humans. We are spiritual, essence. We are holy, the Godself. These three are the sacred layers of a conscious creation, made by the One Source. We need not “turn to” another, rather perhaps we go inside, and find that invisible part of us that is directly connected to a loving Creator. Or perhaps we expand, and allow the essence, the power, to encompass our body, heart, and mind. There we will learn the way. Or perhaps we look up, with our minds eye, and look to our divine self as the pinnacle of the pyramid of power, and retrieve the message.

However you see the trinity is how it is true for you. The sacred numerology of 3, the multiple dimensions of our own existence, and the wisdom we each possess are the three forces which can see all, and guide each of us into light.

When I say it is safe to Trust, I mean Yourself. Trust The Third, for it is You. The Third knows all, and therefore do you. The Third loves you and guides you, if only you will meet and trust. The Third is God.

With great love,

Robin

Days of the Heart, the holy Sabbath

Image by racapopulous on Pixabay

The final in a series of seven short musings.

It is finished. It is good. Rest now.

“Six days thou shalt work, but on the seventh day thou shalt rest: in earing time and in harvest thou shalt rest.” (Exodus 34:21 KJVA.)

“Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.” (Matthew 22:37 KJVA).

To love with all our heart sounds so simple, yet we may not truly grasp the concept of the depth of the heart.  These seven pieces were my expression of realization of that which I do not realize–that the heart is the place of infinite mysteries.  The secrets of God and His universe are profoundly encoded upon the human heart. The heart is the quantum access point to God–the divinely created portal to enlightenment through immaculate love.

But the journey is daunting, and we embark on an epic quest, which we know has no end.  But we go anyway. And within each moment that we say “here I am” as did Samuel , or “send me” as did Isaiah, we take another step on the path to Him.  We seek His face always. But wait! Do you feel His presence? He is just ahead. But now He is behind! And now He is near, surrounding and encompassing–what does this mean?  Do you perceive the omnipresent compassion? Are we there?

Today is Day Seven.  For six days I listened, walked, followed, climbed, fell, and sought His face.  Today I rest. Today I draw nigh to Him, and He draws nigh to me. I am there, in His holy rest.

Some people feel compelled to action–constantly. To stop moving is to stop serving, or perhaps stop loving. Not so, my friend. This is why He speaks of rest, and demonstrates that rest for us. Therefore I imitate, so I, too, must rest.

Come unto me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  (Matthew 11:28 KJVA).

Rest (as in cease motion)…stop moving, regroup, recover, heal, observe, be still, give thanks, pray, enjoy, celebrate.

Restore (as in rest to replenish)…repair, gather, fortify, edify, fill, cleanse, refresh, sleep and dream.

Remain (as in the rest)…stay, wait, endure, be present, trust, see, you are the remnant.

The creation. story tells us of six magnificent manifestations, culminating in a time of rest.  What miraculous creations are we commanding, as did He? Are they good? Do you see only beauty, science, color, light and love?  Pray love into form, speak compassion into reality, and carry your power–do this six times, and then rest.

The spiritual numerology of seven is the creation story itself.  Let the seven encode you. Unravel the mystery of creation power.  Bring your light, as the seven candlesticks of Revelation. Activate your seven chakras.  Remember the power of Joshua’s holy army, as they followed His instructions: “And seven priests shall bear before the ark seven trumpets of rams’ horns: and the seventh day ye shall compass the city seven times, and the priests shall blow with the trumpets. ” (Joshua 6:4 KJVA.)

Then rest.  “And God blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it: because that in it he had rested from all his work which God created and made.” (Genesis 2:3 KJVA.)

For rest is sacred, it is holy, it is good.  Rest is peace, and comfort. Rest is love, and restoration for the soul.  Rest in the peace of your loving God, and let His peace rest in you. “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” (Philippians 4:7 KJVA.)

Thank you for reading this little series.  I hope you liked it! The next series is under construction! Any requests?

With great love,

Robin

Seven Days of the Heart: Streets of Gold

Image by ractapopulous on Pixabay

Day six in a series of short musings.

“And they said one to another, Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the Scriptures?” (Luke 24:32 KJVA.)

What an omniscient and powerful experience that must have been.   Can you imagine? For me, when I pray, and when I feel the presence of God, an emotion arises.  Is this true for to everyone? What about you? When I learned to recognize that, it became incredibly uplifting, comforting, encouraging, and empowering all at once.  Returning to that place, each day, is a return to Him. And each day, when I return, my heart burns.

What really happened that day, on the road to Emmaus?  Why were two of Jesus’ disciples venturing out and travelling to another village?  Emmaus is reported to be about threescore furlongs away from Jerusalem, which translates to about 60 lengths of approximately one-eighth of a mile each, which would roughly calculate to about 7.5 miles. And why was Cleopas chosen to be the first disciple to receive the activations? In fact, the other companion is not even named, and the narrative goes on to say they returned in haste to report their experience to the other 11.

Who was the third traveller?  Is it a stretch to regard the threesome as the Holy Trinity?  Was this man simply there as a witness? What if he was a close friend of the disciple, and accompanied him so Cleopas wouldn’t be alone?  Was he a minor disciple? A newbie? So many questions! But this unknown, unnamed “nobody” was among the first to be baptized by fire, as had been promised.   “I indeed baptize you with water unto repentance: but he that cometh after me is mightier than I, whose shoes I am not worthy to bear: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost, and with fire:” (Matthew 3:11 KJVA.)

Look back on Day Two in this series, where I wrote about baptism, alchemy, and purification.  This is the connection– the fulfillment of His promise. This is the miracle which we seek.  This short series I have been writing is about the heart–the miraculous and sacred heart. Within the heart is where I find Him.  First I had to learn and grow, from milk to meat. Then I chose: I sought, studied, experienced, and asked. Next I intuited, and heard the Call.  I listened, prayed, and meditated. But also, action is required. We now do:  heal, love, give, laugh, weep, and trust.  Let your heart become empty and open. Let His holy fire wash over you and through you.  Become activated, as was Cleopas.

What road are we walking?  Who are we meeting along the way? So many profound miracles occurred while someone was out walking in the world.  Saul, en route to Damascus, was also spontaneously activated by Jesus. And remember the parable about the Good Samaritan–those travelling the road all had opportunity to love like God.  Abram was called to move his tribe, and Joshua’s army was instructed to march around the fortified city of Jericho. Even the fictional characters I have written about recently: Siddhartha (from the Hermann Hesse novel of the same name) and Santiago, (the protagonist of The Alchemist by Paulo Coelho), went on epic journeys to find treasures, enlightenment, fulfillment, happiness, and God.  Those pieces can be found in recent posts on this site here and here.  

We are called to get out of our comfort zones, to walk the walk, to regard our neighbors as ourselves.  When we seek Him we will find Him. He will unravel the mystery for us and show us the true path to paradise.  He will fill us with the Holy Spirit, and our hearts will burn. We will be the light, the city on the hill, the lamp unto the feet of the world.  On the road is where we meet God. He is out there, waiting for each of us.

The inspiration for this piece came to me last night in a dream.  I was visited by the spirit of the Archangel Michael who appeared to me surrounded by gold, accompanied by a lion, and carrying a blue sword of truth.

With great love,

Robin

Prayer of Intention (Chapter 9 Empowerment)

This original prayer of intention is found in Chapter 9 of Pray Without Ceasing, Essays and Godwinks, by Robin P. Currie.

“Holy Father, thank You for providing me with all that I need to command miracles for myself and others. I forgive myself, as You forgive me, for blindness to my own power. I forgive myself, as You forgive me, for the times I have relinquished my power to others. Help me to regain and hold fast to my power. Send me angels, guides, and helpers. I will be strong with You by my side. I am revived, renewed, and empowered by You. I am steadfast and prepared for Your holy calling. I will not be overcome.
Amen.:

Seven Days of the Heart

Image by Gerd Altmann of Germany on Pixabay

The fifth in a series of short musings.

A reader messaged me a few days ago.  He told me he likes my work because I write from the heart.  That was quite specific, and something I had not considered. I guess I assumed my work was coming from my brain.  Perhaps I was wrong. Perhaps we express ourselves from undiscovered place, from secret spaces, or from all places within us and without.  Creativity may be more all encompassing than I originally thought, at least for myself.

One thing I can say for sure:  this short series, Seven Days of the Heart is most definitely coming from exactly where the title describes.  And, it has given me a new perspective on the heart as it relates to our physical body, our mental and emotional bodies, and–most powerfully–the spiritual body.  Have no doubt: this work has come from my sacred heart–the one that beats for God and all of humanity.

Today I reflect further on the heart chakra, and the inner hrit.  This truly is the sacred heart, the house of the master builder, the gateway to ecstasy.  When I wrote Pray Without Ceasing, Essays and Godwinks I asked myself a critically important question:  how do I connect the physical organ with the energy of the chakras and the esoteric sacred heart?  How do I express intuitive ideas in a practical manner? How do I bridge the world of science with that of mysticism?  The chapters in that book guided by the heart chakra are Love, Forgiveness, Gratitude, Hope, and Partnership. Here are a few excerpts.

Love.  “..these ideas may also help to teach us that there are always new and previously undiscovered ways in which we can, and do, place painful limits on both the love that we give and the love that we receive.  What are those self-imposed limitations? Where are they hiding? Search your soul, and ask for help to reveal the veiled thoughts and feelings from which we suffer restrictions on love. What if each of us could call upon heavenly healing–to unlock and release the wounds from which we have limited the flow of divine unconditional love which is meant to swirl through us, in us, to us, and from us?  Where are those secret places, buried deep within us, where love is not welcomed? How do we reach those traumas, learned lies, scars, and deeply injured parts of our psyche in order to overcome the history which so savagely sabotages our beautiful and pure energy of divine love that is meant to carry us all, together, through a joyful life in communion with God? For those answers, we must pray without ceasing.”

Forgiveness.  “Alexander Pope (1688-1744), a British poet, reminds us, in his piece An Essay on Criticism, of God’s desire for humans to remain constant and always at the ready to forgive each other for wrongs.  In the aforementioned poem, Pope introduces his timeless phrase: ‘to err is human, to forgive divine’. We all make mistakes but still, in our desire to please God, we must reach, we must practice, we must be compassionate to ourselves, and we must forgive.

And, forgiveness is such a critical element of our humanity that it is addressed many times in The Holy Bible.  Even the very foundational prayer of the Christian faith, The Our Father, has a distinct section which addresses mutual, and reciprocal, forgiveness.  Jesus clearly cries out in The Gospel of Matthew, Chapter 6 to “forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.”  This declaration now renders forgiveness a command from God, not an option, and not an action that we may continue to refuse any longer.  Why do humans find it so challenging to forgive? Where does pride come into play? Why do we decide to remain wounded, when we can obey God, release others, and free ourselves?  Let us pray and meditate upon this until we are liberated. Let your heart fill with love and forgiveness, and allow those sentiments to wash out resentment and anger. Shed the weight of bitterness and fly.

Gratitude.  “‘Gratitude is not only the greatest of virtues, but the parent of all the others.’ Marcus Tullius Cicero

Many good and well-intentioned souls find it difficult to break out of a habit of complaining, or one of focusing on undesirable circumstances, or difficult people.  To remedy this condition, we must study the superstars of “giving thanks” in The Bible. Job, King David, Ezra, and Saint Paul all experienced circumstances which ranged from devastating tragedy, to great heights of success and blessings.  One thing all of these heroes had in common, was a devotion to the practice of giving thanks to God under all circumstances. These important figures, both from The Old Testament and The New Testament, faced some overwhelming situations and experienced immense suffering, yet they remain ever grateful to God, even for their very lives.  This level of appreciation does not always come easy, and it certainly does not happen overnight. How can we, as did these powerful figures, strengthen our capacity to feel grateful for the blessings which have been graciously gifted to us, even amidst fears and perceptions of lack? And why would we want to do so?”

Hope.   “One of our greatest teachings about hope can come from the Book of Ezekiel.  The story depicts a prophet who rose out of the desperation of Israel, after the occupation and the Babylonian deportations.  Ezekiel brought a level of hope, a new hope, which had been unimaginable to a people so lost. But let us examine who Ezekiel really was–including the good, the bad, and the ugly:  a priest; a contemporary of the prophet Jeremiah; a survivor of the invasion of Jerusalem by the Babylonians; a politically displaced person; a man who experienced both physical and spiritual exile; an open minded soul devoted to God; a bold character; and a human, with all of the struggles of duality which go along with our lives as embodied creations of God.  Ezekiel was just like you, and me.

The holy city of Jerusalem had been overthrown and occupied by the Babylonians, and God charged Ezekiel with the task of restoring the bond between God and His people.  Read all of Ezekiel 37, but especially verses 5-8: Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live: and I will lay sinews upon you, and will bring up flesh upon you, and cover you with skin, and put breath in you, and ye shall live; and ye shall know that I am the Lord .  So I prophesied as I was commanded: and as I prophesied, there was a noise, and behold a shaking, and the bones came together, bone to his bone. And when I beheld, lo, the sinews and the flesh came up upon them, and the skin covered them above…Ezekiel 37:5‭-‬8.  Consider the faith and the measure of hope which was required for Ezekiel to understand this holy calling and persevere with his mission.”

Partnership.  “…the Third Force is actually the transformed couple.  No longer are they two individuals, but one. ‘Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh’.  (Genesis 2:24).  And the Gospels also repeat this theory:  ‘and they twain shall be one flesh: so then they are no more twain, but one flesh’ (Mark 10:8).

These teachings also support Twin Flame thinking.  Those in committed relationships must examine what it true for their union–through prayer, honesty, respect, vulnerability, responsibility, and unconditional love.  There are many key partnerships which serve as models for us. Some of these partnerships are of sacred commitment, a traditional marriage between a man and a woman, but what of other, deeply loving, and deeply spiritual partnerships?  We began with Jesus and Mary Magdalene, but, as we us explore further, we discover, a host of critically important partnerships throughout biblical history, and beyond, which have been provided to us as relationship and commitment mentors. Let us learn from all of these guides.”

Finally, the mantras for each chapter.  When combined, they create a complex and powerful mantra that will feed your heart.  The mantra becomes a prayer: the prayer announcing love and hope for yourself and others.  This is my Prayer of the Heart:

My Love is pure.  I Forgive. Thank You.  Hope heals. I belong.”

With great love,

Robin
