I recently learned about a new practice that Native Americans use when they desire it to rain, the concept is called Pray Rain. The wording is a little off and that is exactly the point – it is not Pray FOR Rain, but instead, Pray Rain. The concept is that instead of asking the Universe/God to provide you with what you want put yourself into a state of gratitude for already having received that which you want. In the ceremony, the Native Leader stepped into the sacred circle and kept thanking his ancestors while imagining that it was raining on him. He felt the rain on this skin, and was thankful, tasted the rain in his mouth and was thankful. You may be able to guess what happened later that evening, a storm front was moving across the country, and dipped down (off course) to rain on his area, and then moved right back up and continued across the country to the ocean. This concept literally changed how I have been using the Law of Attraction. The Law of Attraction states that which you spending your time and focus on is what you will get. If you focus on financial abundance, you will get more of that, if you focus on your debt, you will get more of that. I started using the Law of Attraction eight years ago with amazing results in my life. I coined the phrase 0% effort, 100% return based on how effective the Law of Attraction could be, but until I came across the Pray Rain concept, I did not know how much more effective it could be.
I have been searching for how to apply the Law of Attraction in the most difficult situations. For me, the area where it has been hardest to apply the Law of Attraction has been relationships. It is funny to me how I can manifest money, or great opportunities, or even crazy things like front row concert tickets, but it is difficult for me to manifest a date. I spent countless hours praying to God to help me, guide me, begging for his help and grace. And, then I learned about Pray Rain. I know the Law of Attraction works best when you are in a state of gratitude. This means you are not only grateful, but so grateful, that you realize what you are going through is so much smaller than all that you have. It’s that connection to your higher self, the true you, where you know, that even with this current issue, your life is still amazing and great. For the month of May, every time I had a negative thought (sad, frustrated, angry, lonely, etc), I focused on thanking the Universe/God for this amazing relationship and life – I prayed rain. And, the most amazing things started happening. I got asked out from a dating site I had been on forever with no progress; an ex reconnected with me out of the blue and wanted to get dinner; and, a guy I had met and gone on a few dates with all of a sudden wanted to see me more often!
Where in your life are you feeling stuck? Where do you feel like you are out of the universal flow where things easily come into your life (0% effort, 100% return)? When that thought/feeling or situation occurs again, instead of focusing on how to get out of it or what you should do, focus on what you want. Then, start being thankful (state of gratitude) acting as if you got what you wanted. Remember playing make believe when you were a kid? This is the same concept. Start imaging that the bill got paid and you see a big PAID IN FULL stamp on it. Imagine the car got fixed without the number in your bank account changing. Imagine the outcome you want and most importantly feel how you would feel once you got that outcome. Be overcome by gratitude and joy that you got exactly what you wanted… then, watch the miracles occur, easily and effortlessly.
