All of us, at some point in our lives, if we pray and meditate in our lives – have prayed and meditated with others. Whatever method in which we’ve done both, whether we sat, kneeled, stood, danced or whatever, we can say we’ve done this with others, because there were others in the room, in the circle or in the very near vicinity.
And, of course, we can argue that all of us at some point in our lives, have prayed and meditated alone.
Or have we? Let’s take a closer look.
What we’ve been very unaware of during so many times that we’ve prayed and so many times that we’ve meditated, is that we’ve never done it alone. Ever. In these moments of prayer and meditation alone, we have been used to thinking only to look at our immediate surroundings to determine if we’re alone or not. We only examine who might be within our sight.
The Physical Earth
First, what we’re unaware of is that all around the globe there are other people praying and other people meditating at that same moment. Each and every person praying or meditating is part of the energy field that each of these activities generates. Each person connects to each other that prays or meditates. Physical location can truly have no bearing whatsoever.
We need only open our minds to these other souls, and become aware of what we have been unaware of – that even when in a particular room alone, we are connected on the planet in that moment in time, to all other persons praying or all other persons meditating. The energy of prayer and meditation can be felt, recognized and even seen with our mind, if we allow ourselves to feel, recognize and see it.
We are never alone in our prayers. We are never alone in our meditations. The joining in prayers is around the globe. The joining in meditation encircles the whole Earth. Pick a time to pray or meditate and we connect to those who pick the exact same time. This is true 24 hours a day.
The Spirit Side
Second, when we pray or meditate, we can also pray with and meditate with those in Spirit. Those in spirit who seek to join in prayer are countless beyond our imagination. Hold out your hand ready to hold someone else’s hand and there will be another holding onto our hands. We may not “see” or “feel” their hand as we are used to thinking, but if we open our minds to them being there, holding our hand in prayer or meditation, we will learn just how many are linked in that moment. Again, we only need to open our minds to this actuality.
Meditating with the mind open to those souls in spirit that are present to help us connect to the light within, allows us to join an energy field infinite in scope – the field that is all life. Again, we need only be aware of this connection in order to become aware that we are a part of it when we pray and meditate.
When we open our awareness of these others beyond our room and beyond our physical world, who are ready, willing and able to connect with us in prayer and meditation, our prayers become united throughout this world and the next. The strength and expanse of our meditation grows to beyond that which is our own concept of the size of our universe.
We need only allow it to be, and we will become aware that it is. In this, we will know then that we’ve never prayed alone, ever. We will know that our every meditation connects us to all others, in physical bodies or not – these others who are like minded. Together with these others, we are connecting with this side and the next in raising our vibrations to the One Life, One Love, One God that is All.
In doing this, we become part of the chorus singing the highest and the most beautiful of songs which is what prayer really is. We join as part of the most expansive community within the ocean of consciousness which is what meditation really is.

Another beautiful post; thank you Jodie. I especially loved this part:
…we become part of the chorus singing the highest and the most beautiful of songs which is what prayer really is.
Very touching. Thought I was always praying alone. Thanks.
I want to be in tune with higher self, but practicing meditation seems not to be enough. What should I do now?
Practice patience. Without patience, no one is in tune with higher self.
Thank you Jodie, a lovely reminder of our connection with the human goodness in these turbulent times.
