I have often felt that something else has been watching over me. How the spirits of humans and animals that I have always wanted to be with get attached to me somehow is just one example of this. For instance, I once saw my friend’s cat 2 or 3 days before she actually visited me. But, prayers are beyond human gut feelings. My prayers are something else because sooner or later they grant me real results.
I think of prayer as a totem because it works like that although it isn’t a physical object and thus doesn’t fit the definition of a totem─but, then again our definitions of physical and mental spaces are very narrow because these are designed by analyzing only some available parameters. Prayers open the other dimensions like the spirit world and dreams. The things that I have achieved through prayers are very difficult to understand.
I am going to show you only four of my prayers:
- I once wanted to add more books to my library. So I prayed for them and then one day I took a walk in my neighborhood. I daydreamed a bit while reaching a specific area and then decided to walk in a particular direction. Pretty soon, I came across a woman who was throwing away lots of great books simply because her daughter had received admission to the Medical University. These books were now worth absolutely nothing to her so she gladly gave them all to me instead of throwing them away.
- I was praying hard to be with a relative of mine who was here from overseas. That month, my college postponed its opening date.
- I prayed for a specific Prisoner of War (POW) because he was just a child who just happened to be in the wrong place. He was released alive later by the same authorities that brought him to trial.
- While I was learning how to drive, I used to pray a lot. I made all sorts of mistakes until I found an instructor who showed me how to drive in narrow, large, and twisted streets. He was exceptional because he wouldn’t make me stick around inside one city or type of region. Several years later, we ended up in Ottawa where the roads are designed just like the way that last instructor had showed me. Every time I drive around in Ottawa, I only think about him─I had some bad driving instructors and only one of them was smart enough to help me pass. Whether we believe it or not, prayers have a very strong effect on this world including the dreamscape. One prayer that opens you up to your hidden self as well as the cosmos is “Rabbai Zidni Ilmin“, which means “God! Grant me more insight”. You should say this prayer a couple of times while lying down and activating your alpha state.
Saying all this, I know that not all my prayers yield results in this dimension but then again there are other dimensions where they work better.
