How can I really offer healing prayers?
Each week I take a question from my Facebook page to answer here in this column. This week one of my Facebook friends asked : MarVeena, How do I know my prayers are heard and do any good? I am devastated by these recent events and really want to be a help. How can I send out healing prayers??? Marie G.
Maria, that is a great question. Everyday some of us are going through some sort of trauma or life changing situation.
For those of you in the trenches with a life changing event, nothing feels better than hearing your loved ones rally around you with some thoughts, healing prayers, blessings or something to encourage you or offer direction when you don’t know what the heck to do.
Healing Prayers For The Dead
Healing prayers are delivered to souls that are actually getting ready to cross or have already died.
Often people don’t realize just how much of a blessing you can be to a soul that might be reluctant to “give up the ghost” — that is afraid to let go, or they might be worried about leaving family behind.
I have quite a few ideas that the ordinary person can use to be of help to a soul or souls crossing over using healing prayers and blessings!
Using Healing Prayers and Blessings
1. First of all, realize your connection to each other, and Creation.
A part of our illusion here on this earth plane is that we are separate, and individual. The Holy Spirit set up this illusion so that we can have our little adventures in a physical body and think we are separate from everyone, and then eventually have an epiphany where we realize we are all interconnected.
Most of us incarnated here go through what is called The Veil of Amnesia to let us forget our spiritual connection to source.
We willing do this, so we can play out this character with all the supporting cast of family, friends and teachers all set up to challenge us, to motivate, inspire us along the way.
We have a supporting cast of souls that we live our life around, but we are connected to all things, and all people! Through The Holy Spirit.
You might not feel the connection, because you slipped through the veil of amnesia to forget for a reason. Now is the time to begin to re-remember your link with each other.
This is a key idea for you to have first, in order to be able to offer any soul any where encouragement, healing or blessings.
2. Connecting To The Other Soul
One very simple way to get it on your mind is to imagine The Holy Spirit or what you think of as God/Goddess as like the giant switch board in the sky. In order to get to another soul you must first go up to the switch board operator who then connects you to the other soul.
Please don’t worry about our creative source being offended if we call them by the wrong name or make a mistake with our prayers.
Creation is way bigger than that. Set your intention to connect to who ever is wanting prayers for or send it out to a situation like the one in Dallas, last week or France or Baton Rouge. Where ever there is need.
3. Sending Prayers and Blessings
Once you feel you have linked up with the soul of the person, then you need to use your imagination or your expertise if you already know a healing modality like Reiki.
If you are not Reiki, or otherwise trained, then use your imagination to send what ever blessing you want to. You can surround the soul or souls with color, healing sounds, symbols, frequencies, blessings, prayers, chanting and what ever else you feel inspired to send.
4. The Hermetic Laws of Similarity
There is a wonderful prayer called “The Hermetic Laws of Similarity”, it uses the idea that a microcosm can represent the macrocosm.
With this idea in place, you can use a photo of a person, animal or even city to use as a focal point for your prayers to effectively send healing prayers to them.
5. Praying The Rosary and Other Prayers
I love to pray the Rosary for souls crossing over, I use a different version than the one most taught but it is powerful and I always feel the Great Angel Mary’s presence when I pray this. It brings a lot of comfort and healing to souls in transition.
You could also offer other prayers like the “Our Father” or Palsm 24, or even a prayer straight from your heart. Please don’t ever feel that you have to be correct when talking to spirit or praying. I think when you send love, prayers or gifts from the heart they are received through the heart center of the person you are praying for.
6. The Missing Man Table
Last month I wrote an article on a tradition called the “Missing Man Table”. Click the link to read my article. It has a few great suggestions that you can use to set up a table to honor a police officer or any special person that you would like to set up a symbolic space for.
7. Using Reiki To Send Healing Prayers
Using Reiki is a really powerful way to transfer energy, healing prayers and love to some one living, in transition or even in limbo.
I am offering Reiki Level 1 training on a regular basis. If you are interested message me and I can send you the details. Reiki is a hands on healing modality that uses symbols to help focus and empower the experience. Energy healing is a gentle way to support our system, heal issues that might be buried in the tissues and bring balance back to your body. I have been teaching Reiki at all levels including Karuna Reiki for 20 years.
