How to Feel Better When Things Get Worse

by: Heather Macauley Noëll

With all the prayers in the world for peace, why haven’t we accomplished this? What is peace and what will truly perpetuate peace on earth? Let’s begin with what peace is not. True peace is not a lack of conflict. True peace only occurs when we move beyond conflict in our own hearts and minds and can truly feel at peace within ourselves and within our own lives. Is it truly possible we don’t fully understand the technology of prayer?

The most powerful prayer in the world is how you FEEL. If you want to experience peace in the world, you must first learn how to actively feel peaceful throughout the day. You must find peaceful ways out of conflict. If you want to see a harmless, loving world, you must BE HARMLESS in your actions and conversations with yourself and with others.

Many people feel frustrated and helpless, as if their voice and prayers aren’t being heard. But your prayers, in the form of your feelings, are heard. And if your ‘prayers’ are feelings of anger and frustration and helplessness, you will receive more of what you’ve been praying for.

Based on results, isn’t this true? Haven’t you noticed that your feelings keep generating more of the very thing you don’t want to experience? If you’re praying for more money, aren’t you feeling a lack of prosperity or abundance? If you’re praying for love, aren’t you in fact feeling unloved and alone? Have you noticed these issues are then perpetuated, not solved. We cannot heal a world in conflict if we are in conflict within ourselves.

Some people become so disillusioned they become angry that God hasn’t heard their prayers. Could it be that we’re literally ‘praying’ our own experiences into existence every moment of every day and that our prayers are being answered, for positive or negative? If that’s the case, shouldn’t we learn to align ourselves with the power of positive prayer? This program will explain how to reprogram your thinking and give you the tools for having peace as a reality in every moment of your life.

As I’ve explained, the most powerful tool for peace in your life, and in the world, is your ability to feel peace continually, no matter what’s going on in the world around you or in your daily life.

The Tiger: A True Story of Vengeance and Survival

There is something hypnotic in a tiger… She has that quality. She treads so softly that there is no sound, and you won’t know she’s there at all. But if she doesn’t like something, she’ll stop and hold your gaze. There’s a kind of psychological ballet: who will outstare who? In such cases, you should not suddenly turn tail because the scent of fear passes quickly. You must back off slowly, slowly — especially if the tiger has a kill, or if she’s a mother with cubs; She makes a step — you must not run away. And only when you leave the territory she thinks is hers, only then you can run.
