    It always feels better when we do the Divine Mother healing prayer Due to his experience from the past he has total faith in its power Paramhansa Yogananda taught us to use the power of prayer to heal physically emotionally and spiritually He said there are three factors that determine how well it works The power of the prayer or technique The power of the healer or channel The receptivity of the patient Yogananda spiritualized this prayer infusing it with the ability to transmit Divine healing light As a Massage Practitioner I have had a lot of opportunity to practice this prayer hands on and now know how to open myself up as a channel And Carson with his faith was a very willing recipient He had no mental blocks or doubts His receptivity drew the healing energy through me I learned something that day God doesn t care if we are mad or upset or even having a temper tantrum He loves us and listens to us just the same We don t have to beg When you need healing demand it God will be with you instantly He may come to you through a channel or it may be direct He already knows what you need In fact He knows better than you do what is good for you so His answer may not look exactly the way you expect But it will be perfect for you Just ask relax and open yourself up to receive the light Let this be your first reaction to traumas large and small In the wise words of my nephew pray for it This entry was posted in Superconscious Living Bookmark the permalink Comments Ruth Schrager says October 4 2015 at 5 40 pm Thank you This was a great article I look forward to hearing from you again Love Ruth Reply Satyana Willard says October 5 2015 at 3 07 am Thank you Ruth I m so glad you enjoyed the article There is another article that was inspired by my other nephew called Divine Remembrance Joy to you Reply lynn says October 4 2015 at 8 11 pm Beautiful thank you Reply Satyana Willard says October 5 2015 at 3 09 am Blessings to you Lynn Reply Michele says November 8 2015 at 6 24 pm what a beautiful experience to have with your child I wish I knew of this prayer earlier in my life to help myself and others Will start using daily Thank you Ruth for sharing this lovely story Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Name Email Website Comment Have posts you are interested in sent to you when they are published Help the Expanding Light better serve people About the Author Satyana Willard teaches Yoga Therapy at The Expanding Light She is an Ananda Yoga Teacher and Meditation Teacher Posts for Superconscious Living Healing on All Levels Seclusion of the Heart Make Me a

  • Divine Remembrance | Expanding Light
    when he was born He remembered I think many children are born with a memory of God from the astral world When I was a child I had experiences of light in my body But over time we forget and get caught up in the details of our busy lives How can we remember again The key is to opening up to what is called in Sanskrit smriti or divine remembrance My two favorite authors Paramhansa Yogananda and Swami Kriyananda have written hundreds of books and articles that can help us tune in and remember not only the divinity of the Masters but our own divinity as well One simple aid is to look up especially during meditation When our eyes float down we tune in to the subconscious mind When our eyes are straight ahead we are in the conscious state But when we look slightly upward towards the spiritual eye we direct our minds toward superconsciousness This is a place of stillness Jesus Yogananda and the other Masters came to show us the way to this stillness They are our dearest friends offering to guide us away from suffering into the bliss of knowing that we came from God we live in God and at the end of our lives we go back to God When we know this perfectly and continuously we merge with Him and reach Self Realization Drew seems to be pretty clear on this concept So now I use my nephew s words as my mantra Lift me up God I want to see Babaji This entry was posted in Superconscious Living Bookmark the permalink Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked Name Email Website Comment Have posts you are interested in sent to you

  • Who did it? | Expanding Light
    reliable car I remembered that an acquaintance of mine had one so I called her She said Funny you should call today Yes I love my Beetle but yesterday I found out that I m pregnant and I have to sell it and buy a minivan How would you like to buy it It was so easy I just slapped that puzzle piece down Sometimes the puzzle piece is not so easy to accept In 2010 I was going through a divorce and was asked to move to Los Angeles to sing for Swami Kriyananda s talks at Ananda L A I have to admit when I first heard about it I wanted to slide that puzzle piece right off the table and under the couch where nobody could find it I had no reason to leave Palo Alto My life was perfect I had a fantastic high paying job teaching Pilates and Yoga full time in a beautiful studio with wonderful clients I lived in a lovely newly decorated large one bedroom apartment in the Ananda Community and was friends with everyone there My family all lived in the area and my sister and best friend was pregnant with twins I consulted Asha the Spiritual Director of Ananda Palo Alto and asked her why in the world would I give all that up and go to L A She said Well you have created the perfect life Now you can check that off the to do list Perhaps this is an opportunity to grow in another way I knew immediately she was right I had grown a little stagnant in my perfect life I went to L A and faced many challenges that helped me learn grow and heal I am a much better person today because I was willing to press that puzzle piece down God gave me a choice I could have stayed in Palo Alto But I have a feeling that had I stayed I would not have escaped the lessons in store for me My soul was yearning to grow and God knew I was ready Now I take my cue from Swami Kriyananda Whenever someone praised him he would say God is the Doer Paramhansa Yogananda reassured us that God is infinitely patient just waiting for his children to return home to Divine Bliss That s where I want to be so I will do my best to follow the path laid out for me while God and I put my life s puzzle together piece by piece It s a lot of fun anyway This entry was posted in Superconscious Living Bookmark the permalink Comments babinajoseph says April 29 2015 at 1 03 pm Yes dear Our God is Great He is doing everything to us in right time Let us say Thanks to Him always God Bless You bj Reply Satyana Willard says April 29 2015 at 9 06 pm God bless you too bj And yes thank you God Reply Leave
