I don't believe in "god" per se - not in the sense of a being, but it's more like I believe in Universal Consciousness. I believe in communication beyond words and I believe in vibrations. I consider myself to be somewhat spiritual, I guess, but not religious.
I believe we are all connected, and I believe in the power of positive thinking. In fact, I don't remember the University - but it was like John's Hopkins or something that did a study on the power of prayer. It included hundreds of people around the world - people in hospitals who did not know they were being prayed for. Different names and conditions (of people in the hospital) were given to different people participating in the study. I don't recall if the number of people praying for those in the hospitals made a difference, but I do remember that those being prayed for (even though they didn't know they were being prayed for) had a MUCH higher rate of recovery - and quicker.
I use the word "prayer," though I do not pray to "God." Every time I send "prayers" or "vibes" in a post, I do it right then. I take a few moments of silence, send "positive vibes" or "vibe words" or vibe images - of being happy, being healthy, and being bathed by "universal light."
I also spend at least a few minutes a day - no set time - to remember those I "keep" in my "prayers," and to think of all those unfortunate souls - human or animal - that need, that they should be safe and healthy, and for all those cold souls, that they should find it in their hearts to help those - human or animal - in need.
I used to meditate, but don't find time for it now. But I also consider that a kind of prayer. Not one where you ask for anything - but a way to empty the mind of all the chatter that stops us from so many things... including stopping us from being aware of and feeling that center that "knows" there's a universal intelligence that is love.
..and I never pray for things. I pray for people's health or well being, or general "good luck" or positive outcomes. When it comes to me, I don't pray for money or a job or whatever it is that I need, but I pray for - the patience, or the insight, or the understanding that is required of me - because I believe that everything happens for a reason, even if we do not understand the reason at the time.
