I encourage you to keep an “answered prayer treatment list.” We pray. We receive. Then what? We often forget, or discredit how great the answered prayer was! We fall back into feeling life doesn’t support us. How can we go into Prayer Treatment expecting it to work when we don’t have the conviction of knowing the answer to our request is already ours? An answered Spiritual Mind Treatment list also acts as a proving ground for our consciousness.
Collective consciousness is one reason to take responsibility for being aware of our thoughts and beliefs. If we float through the day, without taking conscious charge of our own mind, we’ll have hoards of information coming into our sub-conscious mind, without a filter. The sub-conscious mind takes everything in as true. It’s our conscious mind that filters the information.
When I was a social worker, I visited juvenile hall to see a client. As I waited in the room for visitation, I felt sick to my stomach, like I was going to throw up. I thought about the energy in that room. It felt grungy, like the walls had a thick gray coat of anger and sadness on them. Then I thought—They do! I was feeling the collective consciousness of inmates and their visitors over the years in juvenile hall. If I hadn’t been aware of what the feeling was, I would’ve either gotten sick in that room, or felt sick the rest of the day. Instead, I became aware of the situation, and in my mind I put a shield of White Light (God’s Divine protection) around me, and started to “clean” the walls with pink (love). In my mind, I wiped down the walls with my pink sponge. The muck dripped down the walls, graying the space below what I’d just wiped clean. My client was escorted to see me before I finished the room, but I already physically felt better. I encourage anyone to do this exercise when in a place that feels disturbing. Be sure to wrap yourself in Divine protection first. That’s the conscious choice you make to not take on a lower level of vibration or consciousness of others, or the collective consciousness.
- Think of one thing you can do to help shift collective consciousness in one area. “Clean” walls, send love to the neighborhood, recycle, turn off the news or TV. Seek out positive people and monitor your thoughts – even the “I was just joking” negative talk. What are you willing to do today?
