A difficult realization – When other people’s prayers can actually limit your healing.
As we discussed in the previous article, it is important to actually open your heart to receive healing prayers from others. As you heart opens, so does your energetic body, allowing the energy, or love and intention, behind the prayer to penetrate into your being.
However, when opening your energy body, you want to be sure that the energy you are receiving is in alignment with your own intentions in order for the prayers and love to have their best effect.
What you don’t want is for them to be in conflict. For example, if someone is praying for you to be spiritually saved through your healing process, and that is not in alignment with your intentions, you may find the belief that accompanies their good wishes, causes you more harm than good as your psychic self struggles with the concept of what it means to be saved.
I’ve actually witnessed this in a healing session. Family members had said prayers for a woman’s healing that were in conflict with her spiritual perspectives. Her healing process was being slowed down because her spiritual body was in conflict around her desire to receive the loving regard of her family while rejecting the religious beliefs that were attached to those prayers.
This experience taught me that it is very important when receiving healing prayers to set the intention regarding exactly what energy and beliefs you are willing to receive.
You can most easily do this by becoming clear about your desired outcome and affirming it daily. You can simultaneously affirm that you gladly receive prayers from others that are in alignment with your clear intention, and without any limiting conditions or perspectives from them.
You can always choose to receive someone’s loving regard for you without their stated intentions or beliefs if you appreciate the love, but their intentions are incongruous with yours. After all, most prayers are intended to be acts of love for ourselves and those we care about. And love alone is powerful healing energy.
