At one point, I offered this client the power of prayer. I have known prayer to be a powerful tool to invoke Spirit to assist me with challenging situations, and it has always worked: maybe not instantly, but certainly over time. My client's response was "been there, done that". She thus invalidated the power of prayer, as she had done with numerous other suggestions to turn her life around.
How have you become disappointed or even cynical when invoking the power of communicating with Spirit, not from a place of desperation but from a place of trust and faith? Can you surrender to Divine Will without projecting a perceived failure of the past into a possible future? I invite you to renew your trust in Divine Guidance, even if you have felt in the past that your prayers have not been answered. Project your heart's energy out to Great Spirit and offer yourself to the great design that is working in your life. May you stay clear of the damaging position of "been there, done that", and instead open your heart to life in all its miraculous turns and possibilities.
