(Virginia Beach sunrise May 10th, 2011)
On Sunday I found this wonderful book, Gateways into Light, by Flower A. Newhouse. As usual, I asked the angels to guide me to the books I needed. There was quite a selection as I was in the library at Association for Research & Enlightenment (A.R.E.) here at Virginia Beach. One of the world's largest repositories for spiritual books with over 65,000 to choose from. Edgar Cayce spoke highly of Flower's clairvoyance in his readings. You may want to check out her website for a list of her inspirational works.
In this particular book on meditation, I came across a powerful invocation that can be used before prayer or meditation:
"Dear Presence of God, we ask that our desires be calmed so that new and inspired ideas may enter our consciousness. We also ask that all reverent meetings taking place throughout the planet at this moment shall be mantled. Let all persons everywhere who need and desire renewal receive it from the Divine Resources of Spirit. Let mental bodies be purified in Thy Presence. We take new heart and find new vision in the glory of the hours before us in this time of at-one-ment. So may it be for everyone, through Thee, Lord Christ, amen."
When I'm feeling tired or out of sorts, I know I need to still my mind. My reception is out of attunement. Taking a few moments to rest in God can make all the difference.
Wishing you a joyful blessed day!
