There’s a story that describes a child in prayer and the child is simply saying the alphabet over and over. An adult asks why the child is simply saying the alphabet. The child replies, “God already knows what I’m praying for, so the words don’t matter.”
First thing to consider, as many of us know, the act of praying is not the act of reciting words. Even though words are used and reciting can occur, as in saying The Rosary, anyone who prays, knows that it isn’t the words that are the most important part. It is the feelings, determination, effort and “meaning it” within our hearts which are the most important parts – not for trying to “reach” God, but rather to open ourselves up to God.
Second thing to consider, God does not make barriers to love. That’s the same as thinking God makes barriers to God. This is not the purpose, desire or essence of The Infinite Consciousness of Infinite Love who tells us, “Come unto me, and I will come unto you.”
This also means that Death is not a barrier to love or rather Nothing is a barrier to love. It is our own mind and heart that establish barriers to love, and hence the barriers to our loved ones who pass away. It is our beliefs that establish barriers. From our beliefs, we get our motivation. So, the question is, “Are we motivated to pray for our loves ones who have passed away?”
Our Guides and Angels
Each of us has a host of beings on the other side of the veil of death who want to help us in our life here on Earth. But, we can help them, as well.
If we are willing to allow the belief that “with God, all things are possible”, then it is possible to send our love to those who have passed on. And it is possible that they will receive it. In fact, for those who have been able to develop their intuition or psychic ability, we can see the benefit that is made for those on the other side, when we continue to send them our love, throughout our life. They receive the energy of this love and they are helped and strengthened by the love – in similar ways that we are while we are in the Earth. Sending them our love, buoys them, helps them to acclimate to their new surroundings, helps them to further their ability to learn while on the other side, helps them to greater recognize the connection and oneness which we have with each other, and much more.
At the same time, our prayers for them are like for them to stick a finger in an electric prayer plug and absorb the prayer energy which is for them to receive. Prayers for those who have passed, can help them to open their own consciousness to the omnipresent consciousness of the higher forces. This can bring a spiritual healing and consciousness healing in the same way that it would if they were in the Earth when prayers were given for them.
Whether in the Earth or no longer in the Earth, our love sent to another (or others) and our prayers sent for another (or others), are worthwhile and brings forth the “Living Food” which each of us are starved for, to our body, mind, and soul.
“The prayers of a few will save many,” and these many can be anywhere in the Infinite realm of the Infinite Consciousness of God. We can choose to open our minds and our hearts to realms even beyond death, or we can choose to believe that death is too great a barrier – it’s always up to us to decide which beliefs we will select. If we put ourselves in our loved ones shoes, would we want to be on the receiving end of them sending their love beyond death’s illusionary veil? If we were on the other side, would we hope that others care for us enough to pray for us?
Our love and our prayers for those who have passed on, can accomplish a great deal for the well-being of those we still love even though they are no longer with us.
