Ask and You Shall Receive

Check this page every month for a message from the greater Awareness and a new meditation to try as you choose.

What can be said from the perspective of Greater Awareness that would be helpful for people in August of 2002? What are the energies of this month?

It is a time of extremes. There is the potential for great gain and great loss, great injury and great healing, great joy and great sorrow.

t is time of heightened and intensified experience. People may experience a great sense of pleasure in small things, in everyday life, new love, awakening joy. Some people may experience heightened anger and depression. Both may be experienced simultaneously. The world may intensely beautiful and yet terrible at the very same moment.

A theme to remember at such times is the simple statement "Ask and you shall receive."

This does not mean that everything you ask for, you get. It means that as you ask for help, you shall receive it. As you ask for understanding and wisdom, you shall receive it.

Ask for love and healing and you shall receive it. Notice what you ask for. Everyone knows you don't always get the things you ask for. The child learns that early. However, if you ask for help, for understanding and wisdom, for love and healing, it always comes, in one way or another. Notice how it comes, notice how you receive it. It does not always come in the expected or desired form and so it is often ignored or even discounted.

Ask for wisdom, and you shall receive it. Ask for understanding, and you shall receive it.

Ask for help, and you shall receive it. Ask for healing and you shall receive it. These gifts are present in abundance in the human experience. They are limitless. Every experience contains these gifts. Even as you ask for things you want, and you don't get them, the gifts of wisdom, understanding, love and healing are there.

In this time of extremes, to ask for help, for wisdom and understanding, for love and for healing, for yourself and for others, is perhaps the deepest prayer possible, the deepest meditation:

"I am asking for wisdom and understanding, for help, for love and healing, and I am receiving wisdom, understanding, help, love and healing. As I receive these abundant gifts of wisdom, understanding, help, love and healing, I share them."

And so the flow of wisdom, understanding, help, love and healing grows stronger and stronger. It flows from you, through you, in you, to you, from others to others, in others. Let there be a flow of understanding, wisdom, help, love and healing. Let there be a sharing of understanding, wisdom, help, love and healing. Let that flow be present in all extremes of gain and loss, war and peace, joy and sorrow.

May all beings be happy, peaceful and free of suffering.
