Some years ago I learned the value of seaking God 24/7, meaning to be in constant communication with God (as whatever you call it: universe, source, higher power…..). I keep on forgetting and every time I catch myself I keep on thinking: Oh, again I have forgotten so long and think so little about keeping it going…..but then there is also the approach of saying: great, I remember to connect and be aware of things. I remember I can always forgive myself and others, I can always choose love, I can always love the fact that I am human and I make mistakes and loose my connection all the time and it doesn’t matter, as I am still loved without measures. All I need to do is to remember that this is the case :-), to remember God.
When I learned about the 24/7 it was through the bible and the apostle Paul who speaks about it. When I look at this advice I can find it in every spiritual practice I come across. The aim is to be in constant connection, to re-connect and be guided at any moment.
Some days ago a friend of a friend who came to stay with us briefly told me the story of when she fell of a tall ladder and landed with the back of her head on the corner of a concrete step. She was conscious and she noticed that she was severely damaged. Her body was paralised from the neck down. It was the middle of the night and no one was around. I asked her: what did you do? She said: I started talking to my guides.
Brilliant I thought, how likely would I just freak and forget all me spiritual wisdom when confronted with such a situation? And how less likely will it become if I practise my constant communication.
Constant communication is nothing boring or a duty, in fact it is the greatest pleasure to be in that state of knowing about source and the greater truth of live. Still it slips away so easily.
And so I d like to share today a prayer of guidance
I know you are always there to guide me, still I keep on forgetting and I m often vague in my relation with you. Please help me to establish a great relationship with myself and through you. Please help me to establish great relationships with everyone and everything through you.
Keep me in the bliss of your company. Let me bath in joy and forgiveness and love.
Guide me through the lessons I need to learn and let me take them with gratitude.
I praise you and rejoice in knowing where my home is, where I belong and where I can always turn to. In joy and in despair.
The women who fell of the steps asked her guides: So this is it, right? This is my end? And the guides said: Yes, that’s how you chose to leave. And she said to her guides, I am looking after 180 abandoned cats and 3 families in need, I can not go right now, can you please ask for me to get healed. And to cut a long and amazing story short, she did get miracle healed this night. ….How great it is to remember and be in connection 😉
