Mass Consciousness Caused a Stand Down Over Iraq

I have the utmost respect for Gregg Braden, who is, in my opinion, one of the most evolved spiritual leaders in the world. A few years ago I read his book, The Isaiah Effect (Three Rivers Press, 2000). I have recently begun rereading the book which is something I rarely do.

 

Close to the beginning of the book, he tells the story about the impact of mass prayer. This story is very compelling. I will quote a few sentences from the story verbatim and then go on to summarize it. “On Friday, November 13, 1998, mass prayer was implemented on a worldwide basis, as a choice of peace during a time of escalating political tension in many parts of the world. Of specific interest that day was the expiration of a timeline imposed on Iraq to comply with the United Nations demands for weapons inspections. Following months of unsuccessful negotiations for access into sensitive sites, the nations of the West had made it clear that Iraq’s failure to comply would result in a massive an extended bombing campaign designed to destroy suspected weapons sites. Such a campaign would certainly have resulted in great loss of life, civilian as well as military.”

 

Someone, Braden does not say who, began a prayer effort through an organization with a global audience. This prayer event was publicized on the Internet and attracted several hundred thousand people. It was organized very carefully in the sense that people were asked to pray at certain exact times throughout the evening. What happened next is nothing short of amazing.

 

The aerial attack had been going on for 30 minutes when the President of the United States received a letter from Iraqi officials. This letter stated that they had now decided to comply with the request for inspections. As a result, the President issued what Gregg Braden called “a rare order to US forces to stand down, the military term for aborting a mission”.

 

This cannot be a coincidence. I believe that this sort of concentrated effort of visualization by a critical mass of people can have an impact on the world. Numerous other experiments and events have shown this. I plan to keep sharing this information so that my readers can see just how powerful their minds and hearts are.

You Must Use Emotion to Be Successful at Manifesting

The art of manifesting is dependent upon belief. The theory behind this is that you can literally call into your life anything you would like. Most of us have deeply held belief systems which were developed prior to the age of seven. If we come from a background of lack and want, we’re likely to believe in it so strongly that we continue to manifest that same result throughout the rest of our lives, unless an awakening occurs and one has a strong motivation to rewire one’s brain.

One great example of this is a story told by Pam Grout, author of E-Squared, published by Hay House Publishers. Ms. Grout gave the example of a young woman whose grandparents and parents had been wealthy. She therefore lived in the belief system that this was how her life was going to be, without any doubt or question. As a young woman, she decided to divest herself of most of her fortune by giving it away to needy causes. This felt really right to her at the time and did turn out to be a wonderful decision as the various charities benefited a great deal. However, her belief in prosperity was so strong that within a year, without even really trying, she made another $1 million. This shows how one’s thinking and conditioning brings about the results one expects.

I am gearing today’s comments to those challenged in bringing in abundance. In my opinion, the reason these challenges occur is because the “lack and want” belief system is still stuck so strongly in place. Rapidly saying affirmations and desires without really thinking about them and getting emotionally involved rarely yields results. One must come from a place in which one believes the desire has already happened. The best way to do this is to use emotion in expressing one’s desires to the universe.

I believe that my best results at manifesting come about when I take time to really feel the new situation and to be grateful for the fact that it has already happened. It is necessary to state the desire but then sit with it quietly for a while and picture one’s life once the desires have been satisfied. If you are wishing to bring wealth into your life, it helps to envision your life of abundance and to plan how you will handle that abundance and what you will do with that wealth. Have a feeling of thankfulness and try to emotionally be in the situation of having great abundance. Create in your mind the feeling of gratitude and joy that you will feel when it comes about.

I have been working on this for a couple of years now and have been able to manifest a significant increase in my business. This has not made me wealthy yet but it has put me in a much better position. Because it has been reinforced by a continually growing business, I do not worry about it anymore. This feeling of having an abundant business continues to carry over and bring more success. Worrying only keeps abundance at bay. I am still far from my goal, but making progress. This shows that it sometimes takes a while for abundance issues to improve, but does show that steady progress can be made.

A Confluence of Politics and Spiritualty

The following is from Marianne Williamson’s website on an exciting event, Sister Giant, taking place in Washington, DC on February 2-4.

WELCOME TO SISTER GIANT 2017

Washington DC Feb. 2-4

We’re pleased to announce that Senator Bernie Sanders will give a keynote address at SISTER GIANT.

Two weeks after the Inauguration of a new President, Bernie’s voice will be hugely important. At SISTER GIANT we will seek to understand our country’s current politics as deeply as possible and to rise to the challenges of our time most effectively. No one’s leadership is more significant than Bernie’s in helping us understand what’s happening in our government now and how best to respond. His inspiration will mean so much in the year ahead.

We must not be passive.
We must not be silent.
We have much to do.

WHAT IS SISTER GIANT?

In the words of Mahatma Gandhi, “Politics should be sacred.” Sacred doesn’t necessarily mean religious – it means stemming from the deepest part of ourselves.

The search for authenticity, for our deep humanity, should not stop at the door to politics. If anything, it should extend deeply into realms that affect so powerfully the existence of earth’s billions of inhabitants. From how we treat the environment to how we treat each other, our political choices are significant indicators of our moral values and spiritual convictions.

The times in which we live call for a critical re-evaluation of our relationship to life around us – to our fellow citizens, to our country and to our world. Yet in order to transform our current challenges, we must address them from a holistic perspective – recognizing not only the external but also the internal dimensions of both our problems and their solutions.

SISTER GIANT is dedicated to forging a deeper conversation about what is happening in America today – and what we can do to change it. Join us at this time of national tumult that together we might rethink our country.

LET’S GO TO WASHINGTON

At this year’s SISTER GIANT, Marianne Williamson partners with Derrick Harkins, Senior Vice-President at Union Theological Seminary. It will be held in Washington DC, at the Marriott Hotel in Arlington, Va. From Feb. 2-4, 2017.

The Conference will bring together an illuminating mix of thinkers, gathering to consider the state of our country on both spiritual and political levels. We will incubate ideas and contribute to plans by which each of us, particularly now, can help move America in a more enlightened direction.

These are painful times, but they are also pregnant with new possibilities. We can rise to the occasion and answer the summons of history, seeking to be what we can be and do what we can do to help heal the wounded American psyche and fix our broken political system.

What are the deeper transformational lessons to be learned from this moment? What do we need to understand, as well as to do? What are the shifts we must embrace within ourselves, in order to practice conscious citizenship? And what are practical efforts that will need our support, if we are serious about societal change?

From the role of citizen to the role of the media, from how we can get the money out of politics to how to stem voter suppression, from understanding misogyny to transforming racism, from protecting the environment to protecting each other, SISTER GIANT will present ideas and facilitate actions that lead us as a nation from a consciousness of fear to a consciousness of love.

The question on many of our hearts at the moment is, “Where do we go now?” At SISTER GIANT, we will discuss our options.

Let us understand more deeply, dream more boldly, and act more powerfully. If miracles are possible anywhere, then miracles are possible everywhere.

Register now. Come to Washington if you can, or join us via livestream. Let’s co-create a political awakening that shows who we really are.
