I was listening to Oprah’s Soul Series the other day and her interview with Dr Larry Dossey who wrote a book entitled Healing Words: The Power of Prayer and the Practice of Medicine, in 1993. He is a lovely man and I really enjoyed the interview as I have heard so much about him. At the time he wrote the book, there was only one scientific study to validate that prayer heals but now there are over 21 studies, and counting. It does not matter whether you have one person praying for you or a hundred, what seems to matter is the quality of the prayer, its sincerity and intention. If the energies of our intention are in line with those of God (intention itself) our prayers will heal or will remind us that we are healed and whole, we have just forgotten that truth. I believe that when we act from a place of Love and consequently are Love, we remember who we are and we reach a place in the person being prayed for which also recognises that they are love. Isn’t this what it means to love and be loved? Because God is Love, we are Love and that is the creative, kind, loving, beautiful, expansive, abundant and receptive force that reminds us we are healed.
