#122 – Can you pray to “God” for help?

Listen to the full episode:

There are a lot of misconceptions and hangups that people can have about prayer – because of the way it is conventionally portrayed and performed by certain mainstream religions.

In King Yoga prayer is about energy.

It is based on ancient yogic wisdom including an understanding of prana, chakras, visualization, and universal love!

This week’s episode is an escape from the mainstream – exploring a refreshingly dynamic technique of personal prayer taught by Master of Yoga Dr. George King.

Tune in for a discussion with Richard about how to pray to God for help in your own life.

The Secret of Personal Prayer

The Spiritual Energy Crisis

    Richard and Darren. Thank you for another wonderful show❣️ There isn’t enough space to make all the comments I’d like to. However, I will outline my own experience in respect of prayer & sending out energy via the 12 Blessings, other designated prayers, absent healing etc (& asking God for help).

    Since joining the Aetherius Society, I have been sending out energy almost daily and the energy coursing through me, especially during the SPs, has been, to my own wide eyed astonishment, really powerful & so beautiful. Not imaginings on my part, but an energy felt throughout my body as an intense electro-magnetic sensation (sometimes cold & sometimes warm), especially through the psychic centres in the palms of the hands & a tingling on the surface of the upper part of my head. It has seemed to me that my own issues, psychological or otherwise, the feelings of isolation, the sense of a terrible lack in my own ability to do even more, are “magically/miraculously” subdued and/or, bit by bit transmuted giving rise to such a sense of beauty and grace, an awakening to the unimaginable privilege to have access to the Aetherius Society’s teachings, Dr King’s untold gifts, not least numerous Cosmic Transmissions delivered through him, forming the most advanced teachings available to not only humanity on this beautiful Earth, but other worlds too. Practical Teachings, not lip service. Of course I may be seen as being biased because of my great love for our Beloved Avatar and the Cosmic Masters.

    “Praying to God for help” therefore, post having sent out power & healing energy to focal points, as stated by you, would be an appropriate and useful strategy. What I personally pray for though is for the vision granted unto me by the Beloved in All Its Guises to deepen even more so that I may serve It & our Wondrous Mother Earth more effectively, more passionately, more consistantly, more deeply, in a totally focused and intentful manner. This is one of the aspects for which I request help. I find that as I focus on sending out spiritual / healing power, I am granted the clarity of mind to reframe my own “issues” & transform into a more effective channel for L.O.V.E. power to flow unimpeded to the extend that I am karmically permitted: “rising above karmic limitations” so that I may truly begin to appreciate the magnificent jewelled path that I am travelling on & ponder on what it actually means to have within us a Divine Spark directly connected to the very Absolute: “I am That I Am”… Indeed “SERVICE IS THE JEWEL IN THE ROCK OF ATTAINMENT”
    It is said that as you serve, you manipulate Karma on behalf of humanity, thus your own, giving you the opportunity to allow new neural pathways to be forged, thus expanding your perceptual vision, evolve & move towards true enlightenment… Through service, thus, transforming, transmuting energy is provide to heal you bms if this is allowed within your karmic pattern.

    Yes, of course we all need help, we all need to look deeply within ourselves and “to thine own selves be true”. Suppressing unresourceful states will only pop up disguised as other issues. So after your pracices, to request in humility for assistance from the Powers that Be, can be answered very powerfully, bearing in mind the nature of the assistance you seek, as you stated very clearly during this episode. You say quite rightly, “don’t underestimate nor overestimate yourself”, but find the balance on the continuum. Holding the paradox on any concept, as mentioned, can be quite tricky, but processing this & unpacking it, will give rise to an emergent property, greater than the sum of its parts, just as our Beloved Master stated.

    I love all the quotes & references mentioned, of course, it goes without saying😊

    Thank you once again most sincerely to you both. Bright blessings and may Mighty Parabrahma enfold you both in Its healing & protective power. 🙌✨️🙌
