Praying for those who hurt you...

I thought justice was an odd topic for the angels to talk about until I completed channeling their article. It is true. I see so many people in my office who are so upset at others' behaviors that the upset become a focal point of their lives. And while having an angry reaction to injustice or wrongdoing is human and often a healthy reaction, holding on to the anger is not.

A week ago, in the midst of preparing for my class, having a few more home projects completed, caring for my aging dog, and working full time, someone hacked into, the wonderful company that hosts my website and millions of others. I was not pleased to say the least, but after I had a brief upset, the desire to pray kicked into effect. "Dear God fill the hackers with light and help them either make better choices, come to justice, or at least expose themselves." Many of you prayed too. Two hours later the entire system was up again. It is much easier not to fall into victimhood and despair but rather to take potent spiritual action.

Years ago a felon moved in next to my friends' house. He was almost always drunk and often threatening. The three of us prayed very hard. We surrounded his house with light. We asked God to amplify his light and bind his darkness so it could not spread any further. Within months he moved out! Sending light will either amplify what is good and true inside a person or give them incentive to leave you alone if they don't want to play in higher spaces.

Another client is in the midst of a huge court case. He has been surrounding everyone involved with light, very diligently. The first date was cancelled and instead the first trial ended up being postponed. Most people would have been very upset but this person trusted God. There was a different judge and a different jury as a result. The case was decided very well in his favor.

So when you find yourself in a situation where someone has wronged you and you have done all you can do or honestly want to do at the human level, pray! Surround the sad individual (s) with the light of God. It will cause them to grow or go. As the old saying goes, all the darkness in the world can't put out the light of a single candle, but a single candle can penetrate the darkest depths.

We are the lights in this world, not only for those who treat us kindly and well, but more importantly for those who don't have a clue what this earth life is about. Give it a try next time you find yourself in such a situation and see how it works for you. You don't have to like everyone. You don't have to like their behavior or even put up with it. But you can pray to surround everyone with God's unconditional and ever present love. It will change you in the process too :)
