January 2009 Prayer, Light and Healing Requests
May all who visit this forum be blessed with love, prosperity, good health, happiness, and time to do those things that they love to do.

Thank you so much to Delphinus for concerning herself with the December prayer thread even though so much was going on in her life.

The following is one of my favorite poems. I think that it contains amazing wisdom, so I thought that I'd open our first prayer thread for 2009 with it.





Go placidly amid the noise and the haste,
and remember what peace there may be in silence.

As far as possible, without surrender,
be on good terms with all persons.
Speak your truth quietly and clearly;
and listen to others,
even to the dull and the ignorant;
they too have their story.
Avoid loud and aggressive persons;
they are vexatious to the spirit.

If you compare yourself with others,
you may become vain or bitter,
for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself.
Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.
Keep interested in your own career, however humble;
it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time.

Exercise caution in your business affairs,
for the world is full of trickery.
But let this not blind you to what virtue there is;
many persons strive for high ideals,
and everywhere life is full of heroism.
Be yourself. Especially do not feign affection.
Neither be cynical about love,
for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment,
it is as perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of the years,
gracefully surrendering the things of youth.
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune.
But do not distress yourself with dark imaginings.
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness.

Beyond a wholesome discipline,
be gentle with yourself.
You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here.
And whether or not it is clear to you,
no doubt the universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore be at peace with God,
whatever you conceive Him to be.
And whatever your labors and aspirations,
in the noisy confusion of life,
keep peace in your soul.

With all its sham, drudgery, and broken dreams,
it is still a beautiful world.
Be cheerful. Strive to be happy.


~~ Max Ehrmann ~~

2. Please help me in sending some healing to a 3month old who
was beaten so severely by his dad that he may have brain damage. I wasn't sure if my energy was strong enough, but after reading "...You are a child of the universe
no less than the trees and the stars;
you have a right to be here,"
I know that this is what I want the baby to know and feel during his struggle to heal.
Thanks a lot.

3. Light to DUer merwin and family.
He has had a very hard year, being diagnosed with a disease and losing his job, among some other stressful things. They have a young son. Last night the gas company turned off their heat; and he had paid the bill he thought he owed. Situation is resolved today, but they need a hug!!
Thank you and beautiful opening, IHAD!

4. Thank you for starting this thread, IHAD.
Thank you and a most blessed New Year to you and all here!

I had upper left chest pain last night (Tuesday night) for about two hours and it went away.
I was afraid I would have to go to the ER.
I had never had this pain before.

Thank you for lifting me up in your thoughts.

8. Perragrande, I hope that you will still see a doctor.
I'm so glad that the pains have stopped, but I'd hate for something serious to be lurking. :(    :hug: The only good thing about pain is that it at least lets us know that there's a problem.

I will pray for you and will send light and love your way. Please make sure that you're OK.

9. throat chakra, neck and shoulders
My neck is acting up again having had a few cases of whiplash in this life & once the neck is achy my shoulders tense up pulling more on the neck. WAs really looking foward to a session with the body/energyworker I go to this week but guess why she had to call it off for - laryngitis! AT least I do not have that! I have been doing Reiki, toning, wearing my magnetic necklace, *gentle* stretching but this thing won't go away.

10. May all who continue to need assistance from past threads...
continue to receive assistance from the energy put into this thread. May the energy also flow into all future prayer threads. May anyone who has not explicitly requested assistance but wishes to receive it also be helped from any energy put into this thread.

I offer my sincere gratitude and love to all of the holy beings who help us in these threads. We are so greatly blessed by the love and attention that they give us by taking the energy that we put into these threads and magnifying it beyond our ability to comprehend.

:loveya:

13. Light for my friend, e, in Colorado, who is having a hell of a time with CO unemployment.
Edited on Fri Jan-02-09 10:19 AM by BlueIris
It's bogged down with every kind of bureaucratic crap you can imagine, and is making it really, really hard for her to get basic needs met. She is working and looking for more, plus she is a good person, (very much on her Path) so it's deeply frustrating for her to be struggling with finances now. Thanks in advance.

22. Oh, that is so very sad. That poor woman has been jerked around...
so much by employers. x(

I'm sending her as much light as I can muster. I'll also pray for her asking that she be given special grace if it is for the highest good of all involved. (I can't tell you how much I hate having to put that last part on these requests... :()

He had an interview today which we're crossing our fingers over. (It's a company run by a guy he formerly worked for; the guy's great, his company seems solid, and I am just hoping, hoping, HOPING.) He has another phone interview tomorrow with a different company.

Thank you so much for your prayers! I hope that everything you do for other people comes back to you a thousand times over!

29. Sending to all requests written and unwritten in this and all past threads as needed
I have a request for better housing vibes. The need is not acute but I don't want ot wait until the acute day comes to get the vibes moving. I live with my widowed Mother who owns the house and we really need a different place for many reasons. We plan to continue to live together although I am aiming for a place with an in-law apartment on it so I can have more privacy plus a nice room suitable for me to have my dreamed of Reiki practice. I want to make people feel good for a living plus indulge my introvert tendencies by working at home while doing it :D To get this plus the things my Mom wants too it would be best to continue to pool our resources. Mom thinks all we will manage to find even continuing to pool our resources is a tiny cracker box of a place. I don't know how likely it will be but like I said I want and need something just a wee little bit bigger and I worry about jixing the thing with one half of the team in scarcity/worry wart mode. So actually this a two part request one for the house that suits us best and to help my Mom, as much as she is willing to accept, be open at least to the possability of a really spiffy place not the wreck she fears and expects.

39. I hope that it's not what it sounds as though it could be.
Much love and light to this family -- especially to this young lady. May she feel the love of the Universe at this time.

I ask that the Universe help the authorities who will be looking into this situation to quickly and easily uncover the complete truth about the situation in such a way that any innocent parties are protected from trauma and harm to his/her reputation. I also ask that all guilty parties be held responsible for whatever caused this child such pain if the child has been injured in any way. (This or something better for the highest good of al involved.)

35. Finally, I feel a major change is coming for me (for the better).
I'm a bit freaked out about it, because it feels quite massive, which is appropriate, considering the transits I'm currently dealing with.

So if you could all send your best protection vibes that I make the right choices for me during the upcoming deluge, I would really appreciate it.

45. Some kind of...healing vibes to my right knee, please. It's not sprained, broken, twisted
or otherwise injured. It just feels a little left of center in its socket (?) and I want it to go back to normal. It might just be sore because I slept on it the wrong way or something. I am taking anti-inflammatories (...I know) and trying not to let it bother me, but it's really irritating. Thanks in advance.

61. I send all the healing energy and light and love
that I can to those mentioned in this thread. I do it out of thankfulness for coming through a recent ordeal. I just survived a nasty e. coli poisoning. I am thankful that I still have my kidneys and that my health is returning.

I am thankful for the friends and family members who prayed for me and who pitched in to keep my household going. They helped my husband and my pets.

Some things no longer seem important to me. Of course I will still fight to give my family and my Democratic committee all the unity and strength they need. But I have learned that there are a good many things that are not about ME.

I still feel tired and ill sometimes. Sometimes I am still frightened, too, because the doctors are continuing to monitor my weakened immune system. Please send vibes my way, because I think God and the universe must still want me around for awhile. If nothing else, I can give back to those who have supported me.

I am going to post here some kidney meridian strengthening points for you. These do wonders for any kind of kidney issues.

First rub these points first. (This is from Touch for Health protocol).



After that, rub these to set in the treatment--

65. A request for job & economic justice
a friend worries about being downsized as with the last round after saying they were going to get rid of dead weight (example: excessive numbers of managers/supervisors) they ended up keeping several and instead let go of workers. They also didn't let go or at least ever talk to those who spend more time on personal business than the business they were hired to do. And so I ask for this person's sake and for those in similar precarious job situations, as it serves the highest good of all concerned, that the goofoffs and out and out wrong doers shape up or be shipped out, that real workers be kept on and the true excess workers be moved to a real work position or let go, that good workers get the credit they deserve and that pay and benefits become more fair so that when pay is cut it isn't only those low on the pecking order.

Thank you all :grouphug:

69. My daughter is three months pregnant (2nd child) and has possible ovarian cancer.
She has felt ill for a year and avoided doctors, no insurance, full-time student in health field until tomorrow when she takes a medical withdrawal.

My mother was given DES, and "many pills, over twenty" in 1957/58 to help prevent miscarriage of me. She was AB-; I am O positive.

My daughter has been to hell and back in the last 16 years and has finally started to awaken and take direction of her life. She is my only child and an amazing young woman.

Thanks for any prayers/energy sent for her. :grouphug:

May blessings find you all. :hug:

I'm praying for her and her child and will send them energy. May they both live long, happy and healthy lives. I ask this via grace. (This or something better for the highest good of all involved.) I'm visualizing her surrounded by healing light that stays with her during her pregnancy and beyond until she returns to full good health.

I hope that she's been able to see a doctor to determine the true cause of her not feeling well.

I'm also sending energy your way, vickiss. :hug:

Their is an antioxidant called Alpha-lipoic acid. It is suppose to help fight viral infections. Google this antioxidant and read about it. Also google Linus Pauling Institue, and Depak Chopra for further reading. I'm praying that your daughter and your newest addition to your family will move through this with amazing people trained in this field to assist, and come to her now. Hugs.

We really need this; but there is also a job that he may get but won't know about until beginning of Feb. So, whatever is best. We are not sure.

86. My Grandfather has pneumonia and is really weak
He has emphasemya (sp?) so between that and his already weak condition from the heart attack last fall he can't cough up the phlegm :( I can't help but wonder if he is near the end with this on top of everything else wrong with his poor body. He is in a nursing home under doctor's and nurse's care with antibiotics and medicated breathing treatments and oxygen so I can't thik if anything else can be done to help the situation :( If it is his time we don't want make him stay, just make things the least miserable possible and hope he comes back to haunt us at least once.

May those who love him also feel peace (especially your grandmother), and may the connection between him and them be maintained throughout time.

Your grandfather, according to your stories, is a good and honorable man. May he be blessed for his good life and generous acts.

149. Thanks BlueIris!
Our bank contacted us with an offer of a hardship forbearance to keep us from going under for 6 months. We haven't heard back from them as to the start date of the relief. If the forbearance is backdated to November 2008 we still have problems.
We are meeting with HUD on 2/24. They want to help us stay in our home.

We are trying to stay positive while we work this out.

It looks as if Jon will become eligible for medicare within the next few months. He is 58 and became disabled last Fall. It just takes time and perseverance. I'm pushing through the paperwork as quickly as possible.

Meanwhile ~ my new business adventure is now insured for $1,000,000 and ready to roll. I've sent out faxes and letters, now I'm waiting for the phone to ring, the fax to print or an email asking me to meet an oversize load needing an escort.

107. I always send great love to anyone who posts on this thread though I don't
respond as much as I'd like due to a semi comprimised keyboard.

I used to joke about having lost freinds because of HAVA, and all I talked about for four years was EVM's. It's not exactly an intriguing issue.

Well at least now people don't look at me as though I have three heads. Public awareness has excelled.

I met the kindest person I"ve ever met through this seemingly silly effort, though I previously described it as an entire and utter excercise in futility.

Ya never really know.

Yet his mum is suffering from lung cancer. Her name is Jeanne. She requires some juice.

My dad fell on the ice twice and cracked four ribs.

I've only cracked one once. To laugh or to cough or to sneeze was excrutiating.

I can't imagine what cracking four would be like.

But it's hard to see this big brawny dude, who is a former 3 letter man, stuck in a chair.

Yikes.

Would appreciate support for both of these folks.

Thanks in advance.

I try not to worry, but the party is going ahead, so far. My son and his wife, 6 months pregnant, are driving to Ohio from NC. Other grandkids are coming from Iowa, Arizona and Texas, if flights can get through. TV just showed a massive snow storm up there. I called, and the roads are icy. They may have to stop for the night.

Safe passage for EVERYONE out there and speedy and safe work to re-establish all the power outages.

127. Glad for your party.....
There are so many people without power now it is ridiculous. We are about forty miles south of all that. I know what that is like, and I pray for everyone's power to come back on.

I shall send prayers to all loved ones of people who died because of the weather.

120. hoping for a little healing light for myself
I have shingles in my right arm. It is very painful. Plus I'm right handed, so suddenly nothing is easy to do. My son had to open a jar for me this morning.

128. Thanks for all of your support upthread.
My dad is healing up slowly but not as quickly as he'd prefer (of course.)

Jeanne is doing as well as can be expected.

However, one of my surrogate adopted baby sisters is having her first baby under less than optimal circumstances (socially not physically.)

She was due on the 27th and offered to go and offer support but she lives away and has family support.

I know all too well that due dates can be way-y-y off but I just would really appreciate some gentle thoughts sent to her.

She's in a somewhat transient living circumstance.

thanks in advance

130. thanks luv
She just got home from the hospital with a healthy baby boy and sounds more than ecstatic. :)

I had another bout with the flu since she entered the hospital. I'm now all healed up after tons of sleep and the intake of various herbal remedies.

Couldn't have possibly gotten in touch with her since shortly before I posted. So I left a message.

Her nice mum called me shortly thereafter to say that they had all just gotten home from the hospital and all was well, though there had been a slight and most assuredly fleeting complication. It only prevented him from having a water birth. He's perfectly fine and so is she.

Phew.

Thanks again for the gentle thoughts and great friendship.

136. This is wonderful news!
So sorry to hear that you were sick, Stella, but relieved to hear that you are better. Those herbal remedies are the best, aren't they? You are a wise woman indeed!

And, thank YOU for the great friendship, my friend.

:loveya:

133. I'm sending supportive vibes her way, stella. May she accept them if she's willing.
I will pray for her and her child including her living situation.

I'm glad that the birth was uneventful and that both mother and child are healthy and happy. :)

You're such a wonderful "big sister".

:hug:

135. Thanks as ever dear
But I don't really concur that a birth resulting in a baby is "uneventful" LOL, but I know what you mean and appreciate the thought.

Silly.

I would have felt like a better surrogate adoptive big sister had I not been so under the weather, so I could have been there in person is all.

I gave her as much support and info as I could during the gestation.

She remarked about what amazing feminine support she had thsnkfully received through her immediete family members and the midwives during the delivery. The "sperm donor' was altogether elsewhere allegedly in efforts to create a nest egg.

Let's just hope that is so.

I'm sorry to sound suspicious, but I'm fiercely protective of her and by proxy, of her new born son.

She thanked me profusely for all the stuff I told her that she probably wouldn't have heard elsewhere.

Glad it's all worked out thus far as well.

Now just hope I can sort through and wash all Raymo's 17 year old baby clothes and give them to her and him.

Thanks again as ever for all your kind support.

:hug:

138. Your "uneventful" comment made me laugh! So true!
I should have said "without undue complications". :)

Wow, you're really honoring her with your beloved Raymo's clothes. I hope that they're not too difficult to part with. (Yeah, I ended the sentence with a preposition... :))

131. Need Vibes for Kitty Bullies
Several of my cats were adopted as adults from a friend of my Mom who had a foster child who she caught abusing several of the kitties. Then her own child's asthma worsened to the point the doctor told them it was the cats or the kids so we took most of 'em in. Harry is the biggest and is a cowardly bully who has picked on a cat I had since he was 2 months almost from the beginning. Michael is his henchman/henchcat and double teams with Harry w/harry going one way and Michael the other to corner and trap their prey. This has gone though phases with lull with no attacks and then BOOM! Harry is back making flying tackles and not just on George. I can't stand to lock them in one little room all day so I keep trying to reintegrate them. Also when Harry is at his worst he is going at everyone not just George so locking up george for a change only protects george :(

Now things get worse - GEORGE, my sweet tender timid Georgie has now imitated Harry twice chasing Isis whaling on her until she hides and I pull him off her. & born to be a henchman Michael HELPED georgie instead of going after him for a change! I don't know what to do. I have done reiki, crystals, prayed, tried seperation diet changes, imaginging talkign with their highselves etc. some of which seem to bring about ceasefires but this is very upsetting. I am ready to try an exorcism! When I pulled George off Isis tonight he actually growled at me and gave me a warning nip. He has *never* acted like this until the first attack I caught on Isis a couple of days ago.

Anyone willing to send some healing vibes these kitties way will be greatly appreciated. I love the little brats so even Harry Potter & his Henchcat brother Michael whom is named after the ARCHANGEL for goodness sakes! argh!

132. She isn't in heat, is she?
Can sense your frustration. Calm and peaceful, for kitties.

(I thought you had a cat named "kitty bullies")

141. All cats were neutered/spayed as soon as they were old enough
so that isn't an issue. Tho Isis can be a real little brat so it is possible she is provking something.

134. I've never lived in a kitty household, since I'm allergic.
However, I can imagine how helpless you feel when you feel one of your beloved babies is being victimized. (You can't always be there...)

I will certainly send calming vibes their way. May their higher selves help them to get along better to make things a little easier on their human "mama". (This or something better for the highest good of all involved.)

143. Thank you and everyone else for sending good vibes
I love them all so much so it is hard to see one or more abusing the other and now to the point the victim is now acting out. George is so tense all the time constantly on the lookout for the next attack even when Harry is locked up and several of the others are nearly as jumpy. If he was human I would say he had ptsd except the trauma is continuing.

think I will dig out some inscense to smudge the house today to see if that makes a difference in their behavior and then do my best to Reiki out any truama in those kitties

137. Horrible memories are re-surfacing, and I need help
I was the caretaker for my mother while she was still alive and she received poor care at a medical facility to put it mildly, and she died. My mother would call me at home and tell me they were trying to kill her. This happened many years ago and I was devastated when I lost my mother.

I have returned to school and I am taking a nursing asst course, and hopefully can gain employment.
In the class and now at home trying to do my homework; all of the horrible things that happened to my mother are rushing back and the tears begin to flow.
The chapter I am reading right now is on restraints and I get flashbacks to when the nurse had tied my mother to her bed. My mother was so distressed and I argued with the nurse, but the nurse was relentless. I even spoke with the patient advocate at the time about the mistreatment, but to no avail. Lots of things happened, but this is the chapter I am on.
Maybe this is something I am supposed to go through, but the wounds are deep and they are ripped wide open once more.
Tears are streaming down my face as I type this.

I don't even know what to ask for, but this is breaking my heart.
I need to get through these chapters by Monday, and I need to be able to keep it together during class.

:cry:

139. Sending some calming and soothing energy your way, Digit
so that you can through those chapters this weekend, and, that, any healing you may still need to do can be done in a gentler, kinder way.

146. Thank you so much
I loved the way you stated, "any healing you may still need to do can be done in a gentler, kinder way".

My spirit found those words very healing, and I finished the chapter.

I am sure there is more I will have to face, but I will recall your words and know the healing has begun.

140. Oh, Digit... I'm so sorry that such traumatic memories are resurfacing.
The distress that you are feeling is totally understandable. :cry: I'm asking for the Universe to help to comfort you and help the memory to become less painful. I'll add my energy to Hope's, and I'm sending lots of love and light your way.

:hug:

147. Thank you very much
I appreciate the love and light very much.
Maybe it all is as it should be...as I am a protector by nature and going into this field will expose me to many vulnerable people.
Any comfort from the Universe will be much appreciated so I can be strong and provide the optimum level of care.
Your words give me strength. I can do this, and there are people out there who need a watchful eye.
