Recently, I came down with a bout of pneumonia to add on top of the chronic Lyme and tick malaria. My chest ached, the antibiotics were ripping my gut apart, and I was in a pretty bad place emotionally. I felt as if I had my back against the wall and was helpless and hopeless. All I could do was surrender to Divine Power and pray for something to change, even it was death. I was tired and felt I just couldn’t go on anymore and really didn’t care if I did.
I settled into what I call the “Deafening Roar of Silence”. which for me is a state of a totally still mind. I asked what should I do, and was surprised with a booming voice that said “Trust in Me!”. While I am clairaudient and often hear inner voices with directions for myself or my clients, this was the loudest I had ever heard one of my voices. The authority in the voice as if speaking “but of course, what else would you do?” had a tone that was incredibly reassuring, and I began to repeat it over and over. I relaxed and life began to not feel so hopeless anymore as I allowed myself to reconnect in to the Divine. I felt comforted as I knew that I had not been forgotten, but I was the one who had forgotten that I am part of the Divine and always will be,
Then an incredible realization came over meas to another meaning of the words. I began to “know” in every part of my body that the words also meant for me to trust in myself. I began to cry at that point, as I sometimes feel, as I imagine that a lot of you do, that I don’t have much control over my life. I know that this need to control and “know why” are core issues of mine that I’ve come to learn this lifetime. I forget that I’m much more powerful than I allow myself to believe I am, especially when I’m tired or sick.
The beauty and power of such a simple phrase flooded over me, especially since I had received it in such a powerful way. Three little words, yet such a profound statement reassuring me that I have the power in me to accomplish what needs to be done as long as I’m connected into the Divine. While I always know of that fact on an intellectual level, knowing, feeling, and remembering in my heart and in my gut are two entirely different matters.
For me, my daily meditations and my surrendering to Divine Power are my form of prayer. However, I found this beautiful excerpt from an anonymous author that speaks to the power of prayer, not matter what form it takes…
Prayer is the answer to every problem in life. It puts us in tune with divine wisdom which knows how to adjust everything perfectly. So often we don’t pray in certain situations because from our viewpoint, the outlook is hopeless. But nothing is impossible for God…”
Have you ever felt that your back was against a wall? How did you handle the situation?
