My understanding now is that in praying is a much more self-directing activity than we usually think. That we answer our own prayers sounds partly true to me. Through working on our self-limiting beliefs and the unconscious, we grow and move toward what we want.
Now I realize that it's not that my prayers are not being answered. It's just that I have to go through the process of learning my preferences, gaining in self-confidence and learning to trust my own mind. The past 8 months have been a great journey of growth with moments of frustrations and self-doubt.
I like the process of affirmative prayer described by TonyToneTone. The release part is the most difficult. I am volunteering at a place where I feel great to contribute to the mission of the organization and I'm working on a business plan that has helped me feel more in control
How long exactly have you been practicing LOA, Maya??
