Rapid Response:

Influencing the Past, Present and Future with Prayer and Meditation

I have been conducting a series of workshops titled "Spectrum
Meditation," in which each stage of life is considered to be
influenced by a different band of energy, from red to violet. During
the course of the workshop, participants connect to their past,
present and future through the medium of meditation. During this
process, and with the help of prayer, they are able to heal wounds
and project images of how they would want their future to be, as
well as energise their present. Although they are not changing
their past, they are influencing how they think and feel about it, and
from a subjective viewpoint, this is changing the past.
I have written a book, based on this process titled "7 Ages of
Woman," in which I quoted this article.
I hope the research continues and more evidence is gathered.
I believe in the power of thought, prayer and in the intelligence of
the universe.
