Energy: The link between God and science
Why Does Prayer Work? Let's Take A Look...
God = Energy
Energy: Energy can not be created nor destroyed. It always was and always has been. Any form of energy can be transformed into another form.
Everything in the Universe is Energy. A rock, wall, car, piece of wood, money, and any other seemingly solid material is made up of molecules that are vibrating at a very high speed, causing the object to appear solid. However, they are very much not solid, but a movement of molecules. Everything in the Universe vibrates and emits a frequency, including thoughts.
A Thought is Energy. A Thought has a biochemical property, which means it has a frequency. With technology, we are able to measure a Thought. If you have a Thought in your mind, particularly one you think repeatedly, you are emitting that frquency on a consistent basis. Thus, sending vibrations out into the Universe.
Prayer: A form of religious practice that seeks to activate a volitional connection to some greater power in the Universe through deliberate intentional practice.
We often think of prayer as asking God for something, but prayer can also be a conversation with God or with the Saints. Just as we cannot hold a conversation with another person unless he can hear us, the very act of praying is an implicit recognition of the presence of God or the saints here with us. And in praying, we strengthen that recognition of the presence of God, which draws us closer to "Him". That is why the Church recommends that we pray frequently and make prayer an important part of our everyday lives. (about.com)
When we pray, we are communicating with God by focusing our thoughts and intention. We can also say that we are sending vibrational frequencies into the Universe.
The Universal Law of Attraction: Like attracts like. The Universe responds to our thoughts and emotions.
Whether from a religious or scientific perspective, the result is the same.
In religion: We pray to God, "He" answers.
In science: Our thoughts send out vibrations, and the Universal Law of Attraction responds.
It's the same meaning, just different terminology.
There are many organized religions which vary in detail, however, generally the substance is the same. Most of them recognize that the World was created by an energetic being.
Since we were all created from the same source, humans, animals, plants, trees, oceans, planets, stars, and everything else are energetically connected. We are all connected. Studies have shown the amazing power of prayer, and in fact that healings manifest quicker when a group of people prays for a person. Again, that can be interchanged with Energy. The more energy being focused, the more vibrations being emitted, the more powerful the result. If we are all connected, then my prayers can affect you, and yours can affect him, and his can affect hers, and so on... We have healing (energy, God) power within ourselves.
E=MC² (Albert Einstein) The mass of a body is a measure of its energy content. Energy always exhibits mass in whatever form the energy takes. [E=energy, M=mass, C=speed of light] (everything is energy)
In researching some religious facts, (I was raised Catholic but have chosen to embark my own spiritual path, so I had to do some research on this...) I found that: God most definitely listens to prayers, answers prayers, and moves in response to prayers. I thought this was interesting, because if we use "Energy" in the place of "God", it does not change the message. "Energy listens to our prayers (thoughts/emotions), answers prayers (energetic vibrations), and moves in response to prayers (as we set our intentions).
So, how does prayer work? Focused intent creates vibrations in which Energy/God responds.
