I have read it repeatedly, when dealing with spiritual forces, be careful what you ask for. Not only have I seen it, but I have also experienced this incredible phenomena. I know, some pundits will dismiss any idea that spiritual forces, or even God, exist. One only needs to read the Holy Bible to understand that spiritual forces, other than God, do in fact exist. Therefore, this writing is not intended for non-believers.
As a rule, I only ask God and his son Jesus for aid in my prayers. Nevertheless, I also understand that prayer is nothing but Magic; and that there are two forms of Magic, white and black. White being good and Black being evil. God being good and any spirit or god that is not good would be evil. Yet, with that said, it is also understood that other spirits, with powers, do intercede from time to time; and making a distinction between good and evil gets murky sometimes. Even Jesus himself warned us, when he said,
“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!.’ Matthew 7:21-28 New International Version (NIV).
The above quote illustrates my point – that even if we think we are doing the work of Jesus, or God, we may in fact not be doing so. It is a well-known fact, within the ancient mysteries, that spirit forces imitate the forces of good in order to deceive mankind. One might actually be bringing into one’s life an evil force and not know it.
Case in point, I now believe that the Catholic Church knew this, and as a result went to great lengths to keep its followers from being lured by these forces of deception. Think about it, why did it maintain rules that forced their followers to go to a priest in order to communicate with God. I am certain that there were several reasons for conducting such a practice; the most important being people being lured by evil spirits.
Yet, notwithstanding these other significant points, the issue of eliciting forces and powers that influence people cannot be dismissed. Nevertheless, the Church did not stop with this practice; no, it went even to the point of inquisitions, which resulted in the burning of those people who were suspected of aligning with forces other than God. The reason for burning being obvious, as fire is the most assured way of purifying a soul of evil demons.
Moreover, there is also the power of suggestion, positive thinking and affirmations. These points can be brought under the umbrella of your own power. It is well understood that your own words and thoughts are powerful creators. Therefore, when you think of something, it affects you and your outlook; and when you say something, it affects your environment, including people, objects and spirits.
I have heard it said, when one says something, it will look for a home, and if it cannot be found, it will return to you. Think about that for just a second, if you said something bad and it could not find a home, that evil will return and affect you. Yet still, if you said something negative, it may also find a home within someone else, thereby aiding that person in feeding their negative lifestyle. And the same can be said of positive thoughts and words.
As such, I am reminded of Jesus when he said, “But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also” (Matthew 5:39, New International Version).
There are, of course, differing views on the meaning of this verse; but for me, I relate it to the view of purity of heart and intention. Evil can never defeat goodness, or godliness. In fact, look closely at the words “good” and “god.” The difference between these two words is one “o,” which to me meant nothing or zero. It is no accident that the word good has a similar connotation with god, or God. As such, be good in your intentions, like God; this alone will guide what you ask for and will help keep you faithful, and out of harm’s way.
Yet, what about Immortality?
Again, be careful what you ask for. The process of Immortality is not an easy one; you must be willing to give up or adjust your lifestyle and many of the things you have been accustomed to, including food, spiritual ideas, sleep, relationships and even luxuries.
There are many reasons why the ancients went to great lengths to hide the truth. This knowledge must be earned in order to be appreciated and accepted for it to work. One must be willing to give up certain accepted norms to be granted this incredible gift from God.
I have seen the changes in my body and my spirit force, which I do not want to reveal in length. Let me just say, once one decides to take on this path, it will not be as easy as it first seems. You will have to allow your body and spirit to guide you away from generally accepted practices; and when you ask for a result, do not be surprised when these results appear; literally and or figuratively. Sometimes they come like a roar of thunder and other times like a soft rain. And even on a few occasions, it maybe painful and scary, but more on that in another writing.
My final words again, be careful what you ask for, you just might get it!
