The Nature of God and Successful Prayer: Truth – Part Two

Do you want better relationships, a better job, and have prayed for positive change with little or no results? This is the second part of my series on prayer. Emmet Fox, a New Thought minister from the 1940’s, taught that focusing on God first produces results. This series helps you understand Emmet’s spiritual essay The Seven Main Aspects of God from his book Alter Your Life.  These lessons are timeless and have helped many people tune into God on a regular basis.

Let’s continue to think positive and put your energy in the right place!

The Second Aspect: God as Truth

God is Truth. If men or women were truthful, they would express the characteristic of truth.  We might say, “this person is truthful” or “that person is honest and tells the truth and speaks the truth.” But the nature of God is absolute truth. God is limitless and all-knowing. God is not truthful, but is truth itself.  There can only be one truth.  Absolute truth is unchanging and is truth itself.  Truth is not a statement or idea we have about what is right or wrong. It is not a point of view, dogma, or belief system.  Truth is an aspect of God, and is part of his nature.

Some things you experience may seem truthful or people may say they speak the truth on any number of things, but how do we know for certain?  There is no way to really know. Many things can be true or not true, according to your point of view. An individual can express their truth in certain situations or make decisions which they feel are true.  We can make ‘speaking our truth’ a priority in our daily lives, and do our best to see the truth the best we can.  But there is still only one truth. God is absolute truth at all times, in all places, and in all circumstances.

When you think about the nature of God as truth, send truth to an individual or situation and healing will happen. If you embrace divine truth, and pour it into any condition, the condition will resolve itself.  Then, you can release your worries permanently about that condition.  Without worry, fear, or doubt you can release that condition and be free of it.

As humans, it is not possible to know the absolute truth about any problem or condition. Instead, we must rely upon God as our agent of truth.  However, God is more than an agent. He doesn’t bring truth or create truth and dispense it like a judge or law enforcement officer. He is truth itself. All we can do is meditate on the aspect of truth, as it is in God, and see truth in that being or situation.

Daily Practice: Truth

  1. Think of a subject you want information about. This can be an individual, a business deal, or a relationship where things are not going well.  It can be any situation where there is a misunderstanding and you feel you may not have been given a clear set of facts. It could be an arrangement where you need more information, such as signing a contract or, starting a new business with someone. It could be an existing relationship where you are not sure that person is telling the truth.
  2. Take a few moments to get quiet and think about the nature of God as Truth. Think about God as the one channel that projects truth and is all knowing about everything and everyone. Affirm that God is truth itself, and wherever there is truth, there is God.
  3. Claim that divine truth dwells in you and the person or situation that you are concerned about. Claim that divine truth is expressed through that individual and you.
  4. If you have a troubling situation, see truth where you see trouble.
  5. Have confidence that the truth will reveal itself. Be thankful.  Know that you will be led to the right information or situation. Be aware.

Successful Prayer

In your mind, send truth to anyone or any situation that is troubling you.  Pour truth into a negative condition you are currently experiencing. See truth in the troubling person or relationship, and know this is one of the aspects of God. This is a form of prayer. It is an aspect of God. Claim in within yourself and know that God works through you.

Think about life and truth regularly. Meditating on these ideas will produce results.  You will be led from misunderstandings in relationships, or even in business, to a time where facts will be brought out or dishonesty exposed. Believe that necessary information will come to you effortlessly, and troubling situations will correct themselves.  Be patient.

Change happens first in your mind.  After that, all else will follow!

The Nature of God and Successful Prayer: Life – Part One

If you are among those who desire more money, better relationships, an interesting job, or any number of things that better your life, and have prayed for positive change with no results, you are not alone.  Many people feel disconnected or distracted during prayer. What is the purpose of prayer? How do you get centered? What should you think about and why? To whom should you pray?

Emmet Fox, a New Thought minister from the 1940’s, taught that focusing on God first produces results. Emmet’s spiritual essay The Seven Main Aspects of God from the book Alter Your Life helped many people understand their relationship to God, and how to tune into God on a regular basis.

By discussing Emmet’s ideas in this 7-part series, I’m going to help you put your energy in the right place, so you can learn to pray successfully.

Understanding God

God seems infinite and abstract. We’ve heard in many wisdom traditions that God is omnipresent, eternal, and ever-lasting. These qualities, of course, reinforce that God is unlimited in scope. But how do we relate to ideas that are truly undefinable? The Bible says God is spirit [1] and worshiping him should be in spirit and truth. But to have this close relationship, and allow God to help direct our lives, we must understand God’s nature.

This teaching helps you understand the nature of God, as a form of prayer. Daily prayer leads you closer to the life you wish to create. Thinking of God, and considering his qualities and nature, IS prayer. And that is how you solve your problems.

Emmet taught that there were seven main aspects of God.  These are fundamental and timeless truths.  They will never change. Powerful prayer that solves a problem, or makes a demonstration, involves thinking about these truths. You must identify these truths in others and in your situation, and affirm the same qualities in yourself. You can meditate on one or more of these truths every day. When you do, and know what you prayed for will come in its own time, its own way and in a form that is right for you, then you are working correctly with the energies that constitute the universe.  You are putting yourself into alignment with the power that produces change. This is what is meant by ‘let go and let God,’ or surrendering yourself to a higher power.

The First Aspect: Life

God is life. Life is all around us.  It is evidence by people, animals, vegetation, and the ecological system.  Life is everywhere, in you, and in everyone. Everything is in a state of vibration and movement. There is energy everywhere. Your existence is life. All life is God, because we cannot be outside of an infinite being, such as God.  God is all-inclusive; it is impossible to be outside of life itself.  Your life is God’s life. It is consistent, and goes on forever. God works, breathes, and realizes his being in you and through you. It is empowering to know that God experiences life through you.

In our world, it seems everyone believes in sickness, disease, or aging. If you think of God as life everlasting, those limiting beliefs become false, although we may see evidence of our own aging, or death, it is not true.  Life everlasting was one of Jesus’ main messages. Life is eternal, and God is life itself.

Realizing Life

To ‘realize’ life, means to embrace life. Know that life is in you. It emanates from you like a beacon of light. It projects everywhere.  You express life in your everyday actions, thoughts, and words. You can choose to express youth, vitality, energy, or negativity, doom, and conflict. When you celebrate being alive, and everlasting life, you are recognizing that God is life.

Joy is an expression of life. Joy is inclusive, positive, forward moving, and expansive.  When you delight in life, you express joy. When you are optimistic about life, you vibrate at a very high level, and raise other people’s vibrations around you.  You become lighter. This is attractive and inspires people.  It is a state of awareness that attracts goodness. Life is God who is experiencing himself though you.  Joy is loving engagement in life, which is a very beautiful expression. Joy is experiencing the life that is in front of you, no matter where you are or who you are with. Being joyful means to dwell in the present moment and rejoice in your aliveness as a human being.

Practice The Presence of God as Life

The next time you are in a public place like a shopping mall, subway, or store, declare the presence of God as Life in all who are present.  Recognize that life dwells in everyone; life is endless and limitless. I do this all the time on airplanes. For a few minutes, I contemplate God as life, and seek to internalize that quality in myself and everyone on the airplane. You will see a difference in the energy level. It will feel happier and lighter. Try it.

If someone is sick, depressed, discouraged, or struggling, think about God as Life. Relax your body, and quietly invite the Great Universal Power to come into your mind and body. Be receptive and still.  Close your eyes, and give your attention to God as Life. Feel that you know this aspect about the nature of God is true, rather than saying to yourself, “I believe.”

God is More Important than Your Problem

When we bring an issue to a higher power, we must first understand that when we dwell on our problem more than we dwell on the nature of God, nothing will ever be fixed.

If I dwell on a complex situation with people and relationships, it doesn’t change. Every effort I make to fix a problem results in another organized task list. Asking God to help begins to realign people and relationships. With consistent positive thinking, affirming the best outcome, and projecting love I can get more work done.  Recognizing that God is bigger and more important than my problem is a more powerful approach to prayer. It removes me from ‘dwelling’ and puts the energy where it needs to go, which is contemplating the nature of God first.

You have heard spiritual or religious people say that you are powerless to change anything. They say you must ‘turn your power over to God’ and ‘surrender your situation to God.’ For many, it means that you are giving up control of your life, and placing in the hands of spirit who knows better than you. Emmet’s wisdom suggests that we turn to God to contemplate his nature before using our time and energy to dwell on our problems. So, when you find yourself feeling stuck on a problem, or dwelling in negativity, change your thoughts. Think about God’s qualities first.

Daily Practice: Life

  1. When the complexity of your problem feels overwhelming, turn your attention to God. Don’t analyze your problem and make a task list to solve it. You cannot solve your problem directly by will power. Do not dwell on discouragement, depression, or negativity.
  2. Find a quiet place. Take a few moments to think of God as Life. See that life and God are the same. Know that life runs through every aspect of you and your situation or problem.
  3. Declare the presence of God as Life in all those present, and in you.
  4. Feel a sense of gratitude for being part of something greater.

Successful Prayer

Be joyful when you embrace life. If you, or another individual is depressed or discouraged, turn back to this aspect and claim that the presence of God is at work in your life. Know this quality is with you always, and works through you, and through others. Claim it.

Be disciplined about contemplating the nature of God instead of dwelling on your problem. If you want to change a negative situation or problem, change your thoughts first. All else will follow!

Moments of Joy and empowerment

charlene proctorThis month’s Pro-Am Spotlight is the Reverend Doctor Charlene M. Proctor who tells us how to take the positive path, in the ever changing world of ballroom dancing.  In 2015, she was a U.S.D.C. National Rising Star Smooth Champion and an Ohio Star Ball Rising Star Smooth Champion. Her reflections on how to manifest success while finding joy in the ballroom will help you on your own personal dance journey.

Life Outside of Dance

I have a very close family.  My children Jason, Vaughn, and Shenghan Bai are all recently or nearly out of college, and my husband Tom Proctor is at the helm. Currently, he is an L-39 formation pilot and instructor, and flies many aircraft for the World Heritage Air Museum. My house in Michigan is Grand Central Station.  It is constantly filled with family, friends, dance partners, coaches, employees from all of our companies, (both Tom and I moved our businesses home several years ago), along with our Brittany Spaniel, Proctor’s Bird Buster aka, Goo Goo Baby.

charlene proctorMy father Rudy “Ludomill” Chalko, (Milovník Ľudí) was Ukrainian. None of my relatives from my dad’s side spoke English, they spoke Slovak, and my mother was one of seven Silesian children.  The family base was in Chicago. Food was a symbol of prosperity and love, and the center of family gatherings. Hence, I have a kitchen the size of an aircraft carrier because it is where all our silly stories are shared, our drama, dreams, joy, politics, and sorrows.  It is where the grocery list resides, which is always a mile long because we never know who is staying for dinner. Proctor Family Translation: Cook like you mean it and think big, which is one of our family’s practical philosophies that applies to all areas of our lives, including ballroom dancing.

Entering the World of Ballroom Dance

charlene proctorMy mother, Veronica Margaret Victoria Czerná, encouraged my brother and I to be musicians, and explore the arts.  We were raised on a heavy dose of musical theatre, ballet, acting classes, and we traveled to many competitions with our jazz band and orchestra when we were young. We were taught to have an incredible work ethic, strive to be educated, provide exceptional hospitality at home, and appreciate our good fortune to be in America. As an adult, I was an athlete in a number of sports, and raising two boys seemed to put me on the football or soccer field.  As they matured, I went back to dancing.  I took lessons with Tom and then all of us at Fred Astaire Bloomfield Hills attended the Holiday Dance Classic nearly seven years ago. I was mesmerized by competitive dancing and that was it.

Getting Through Difficulties and Struggles

charlene proctorFrom the beginning, I thought it would be interesting to keep track of the amount of times (heats) I danced on the floor.  It became a habit after I was asked to calculate this for an article long ago. So, I kept track after each of the 103 competitions I have attended.  I have danced with seven different pro instructors, exactly 23,850 times.  When I walk on the floor, and question my abilities or feel my courage waning, it reminds me I have been there before, and most likely, will be there again, and all is well.

I’ve seen the inside of more hotels in the U.S. than I can remember, and I have been in airports for Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Easter, birthdays, family get-togethers, and anniversaries. There is personal sacrifice from being on the competition circuit all year, but it is the people and what you learn in relationships in the ballroom world that make the experience special.  When I’m 90 years old, enjoying nature and perhaps playing Mahjong and reminiscing about life, I will say it was worthwhile because of what I have learned. I’ve watched my colleagues and the professionals dance thousands of times, and still love the skill and art of ballroom dancing. When I go to a competition and walk into the vendor area, I’m excited to see the ballroom.  The sparkle is still there!

Preparing for a Day on the Floor

charlene proctorI always pray before I go on the dance floor, and I’m sure many people have seen me pray.  I’m always in the on-deck area when I do. I call forth the essence of Spirit and thank God for the love, light, and protection I am about to receive. I harmonize with Source, knowing I am protected and guided. I ask to be a vision and expression of grace on the floor. And I ask the same for others.

Empowering Moments

charlene proctorI remember dancing in San Diego when I was in bronze, and smooth was a relatively new style for me. I was leaning against the wall in the ballroom with five ladies: Two of them were top pros, a prominent smooth coach in the industry, and another competitor.  All of us were at least six feet tall, dressed in gowns, and we stood within inches of each other. Wendy Johnson walked by, looked at our line-up, grinned, and gave a nod of approval.  “Ah,” she said, “There are my American Smooth girls!”  It was a simple and empowering moment to be in such classy company. It felt great. One of the most endearing parts of our industry is the support of many coaches, who constantly encourage us to expand our dance vision. From their teachings, we strive to think like champions, and be that, no matter our level.  When they say “Job well-done!” after the competition, it feels magical.

 

Dance Challenges

I have danced with many different pro instructors over the years, and commuted thousands of miles for practice. Long distance arrangements are very challenging, and everything in our household revolves around The Dance Schedule.  I could not do this without the geniune support of my family.  Currently, I am dancing three styles with three different pros, in three cities: Viktor Tkachenko, Smooth (Fred Astaire Bloomfield Hills Michigan), Hayk Arshakian, Latin (Fred Astaire Wisconsin), and Igor Kiselev, Standard (Atlantic Ballroom, Baltimore). Each of these men bring a unique teaching and perspective to my life, and our team is very positive. Hammer Nutrition is our sponsor, and all of us are working to maximize our physical bodies in order to bring our best to the floor.

Inspiration to Keep Dancing

charlene proctorI enjoy the relationships, of course, and the hugs and humor when dance seems overwhelming.  Ray Rivers always says, “Everything is simple. Nothing is easy” and I am still learning to apply this philosophy after many years of practice and competing.  Patience is not my strong suit, and it has been difficult to switch pros so often, but lives and people change and I just have to accept that is another part of the experience. Over the years, working with my coaches has been one of the most consistent and enriching aspects of my dancing. Also, the welcoming vibe of the Fred Astaire family has been wonderful.

Last year I was invited to dance in the team match at Millennium, and by the end of the evening, those on the team who had been on the floor all day were dazed. Janice Gonzalez, who is one of the funniest people I know, kept me in stitches goofing around in the on-deck area that night. I laughed so hard at absolutely nothing, I think my dress split open at the sides. We were like silly children. Those moments in the ballroom, when we remember to play and be in the moment for the joy of it, are always among my favorite experiences at competitions. They remind us to be part of a greater community, no matter the score.  We can still have a good time when we don’t take ourselves too seriously.  Those occasions are good food for the soul.

Life Challenges

charlene proctorBecause of the amount of travel on the circuit and the numerous training hours, it can be difficult to keep my nutrition in check (yes, we all fall off the wagon at times). Sometimes I overdo it in all areas, resulting in injury or sheer exhaustion. Balance is a constant challenge. Moving up to the higher levels invites stress because it is yet another goal or milestone. The bar is raised to win, and it becomes more difficult.  All athletes go through periods of questioning their potential.  Like others, I wonder, “Have I reached my potential already? Is this as good as I’m going to get? Is it time to re-adjust my objectives and goals?” And so forth.

In our private lives, those who are outside of the ballroom dance world see what we do as a glamourous mystery, and often remind us to dance with joy. To ENJOY and take it all in at its fullest moments and be proud to be there.  To be FULLY PRESENT.  It is challenging when we establish a goal of being a U.S. Champion or winning a scholarship at a major event, and when it doesn’t happen, we must return home and get it in perspective. My mother is 92 years young now and in a wheelchair, and can’t attend any more competitions to watch me, but all the times she did, she said it was a privilege to dance. It’s truly special. That’s why it is important to get grounded after an event.  When I walk into the kitchen after being on the road for days and things didn’t go very well, words of encouragement from my family to keep striving toward my potential are what gets me back on the practice floor on Monday mornings.

Being an Ambassador

I am a Ph.D., an interfaith minister, and have five degrees.  I have studied in India, Fiji, written several self-help books and articles, and have done numerous programs to help empower women from all economic levels of life. I have done TV and radio shows on joy, positivity, manifesting abundance and prosperity, and I seek to teach others the importance of a positive outlook.  The challenge with ballroom dancing is that it comes from such a deep place inside of us.  It LIVES inside of us. Dance is emotional and heartfelt; it is a private place.  Thus, we tend to question our abilities, and we forget who we really are: we are spiritual beings here to learn and help each other evolve.

My greatest challenge in my ballroom career is to follow my own advice. To balance the joy of dancing with my athletic, competitive nature. I strive to be positive and affirm the best in myself even when the chips are down. Dance is not a quest for perfection, nor is a score a reflection of who you are as an individual. We can never dance perfect, there will never be a perfect round, or a perfect day on the dance floor. Adopting a champion state of mind, as Stephen Knight says, is projecting your inner soul outward and fusing the totality of everything you are at the moment and surrender to being present. That alone takes a whole lot of practice, both on and off the floor.

I choose to be an inspiration to people who are beginning their dance journey.  And I want to say to them that when we fall short of our own expectations, we cannot let it assault our positive self-image.  Dance is an experience that contributes to our own self-development as human beings because we are learning many lessons that have nothing to do with dance.  We are learning to express grace, pray for other’s success as much as our own, and be more loveable people.  We think we are learning the Jive but we may be learning discipline, or how to relate better to our pro, or patience, or math, or any number of other things. It is an interesting environment.  Overall, we must learn to be magnanimous and learn to manifest a positive vision of our own success, and help others do the same.

Dance Philosophy

charlene proctorTo be generous toward others is important.  It expands us. It makes us exceptional. It allows us to cherish one another and sets the tone for individual and spiritual growth. In such turbulent times where much of the world lacks peace and prosperity, we, in the ballroom world, can nurture our basic human desire to be loved and appreciated by bringing our own unique rendition of dance to the floor.  We truly are one musical body of light when we all get it right.

I do not ever forget to thank God for my ability to participate in the world of dancing.  Gratitude for everything I have in my life is ever present even after a hard day on the floor.char16  We must remember to dance with bliss, excitement, and celebration and fill ourselves with courage and joy. We must believe we have abundant talent and are fearless, powerful, confident, and strong. These are the empowering thoughts that make a champion and drive us collectively to success.

Many Blessings,

Protect Yourself from Negativity

full moonTonight will be a rare blue moon. It occurs only once every 2 ½ years. Whenever there are two full moons in a calendar month, the second one is called a “blue moon.” Even though many would argue there is no correlation between a full moon’s impact on our behavior and circumstances such as car accidents or filled hospital emergency rooms, I believe there is some impact on humanity. I never sleep well during a full moon, and people seem to come to me with more problems during those times.

The last full moon, Kelly, our financial controller at our office, said she was bombarded with negativity from her son’s best friend’s mother who had come over for a visit. She said this woman was seriously complaining about everything, gossiping, and overly negative for over an hour. Kelly was exhausted, after listening to this drama and truly drained.

There is energy in every thought and in solid matter. Energy is held in all things. It permeates the Universe and similar vibrations attract each other. Moon or not, Kelly’s sensitivity and compassion made her open the door to energetically receive. When people stir us at an emotional level, and we are caught off-guard, we take it all in. We need to protect ourselves from lower vibrations, which is the dense, sticky, negative energy that is attached to a sour outlook on life, negative commentary, gossip, manipulative conversation, and rudeness. People who are immersed in this type of energy are often energy vampires. They feed off of our positive energy and walk away feeling uplifted while we feel discouraged.

Be Aware

We cannot allow others to bring our energetic fields down, so we must protect ourselves. It is impossible to accomplish greatness in our lives, and live fully and productively, if our vibration is low. We must be disciplined to recognize when we are exposed to these feelings, and do our best to mentally and emotionally rise above people and situations.
To increase a positive output, and be unaffected by moons, negative energies, and lower vibrations, I recommend the following:

  1. Every day, ask the God of your own choosing, the Arch Angels, or The Universe to protect you and your family. Ask that negativity, fear, worry, and self-doubt be removed from your experience. Surround yourself with light and ask for all negativity to be repelled. Emit a vibration of trust that you are protected.
  2. If you are in a transition period (looking to change jobs, partners, or need an improved situation in your life), visualize that you are attracting the best and most abundant scenario. Then, be in a state of gratitude for what you see yourself having. By emitting the vibration of gratitude, you are already acknowledging that you are in receipt of what you have asked for, so accept it with thanks, and act “as if” it has already appeared. Strong, positive beliefs attract success.

To top it off, I find that saying “anything I send out comes back to me ten-fold and whatever someone sends to me, goes back to them ten-fold” works very well. In extreme situations, it takes care of anyone who wishes you harm (because it will come back to them) and it insures that what you put out toward others (peace, love, generosity, kindness) will return to you in leaps and bounds.
Belief systems, and our energetic fields, are extremely powerful. So, be aware and be positive. Maybe only “once in a blue moon” will you be affected!
