the month of August 2014 I promised that I would be presenting
different methods that people have used to demonstrate prosperity, and
this week I have found something that is very intriguing and also
something I have not heard of before. But, since it is from the
great Catherine Ponder who I respect wholeheartedly and taken from the
work of the mystical Emma Curtis Hopkins, I am presenting it for your
consideration as I do believe absolutely what one can do all can do
... and for those who find this appealing, it may just be the thing
that will draw into your life an increase in prosperity in whatever
form you desire it. Oftentimes just our willingness to act on a
new or different idea will bring about an increase in good from both
expected and unexpected resources. Some of you may be skeptical,
but if you are not making definable progress towards realizing your
heart's desires, this just might be the way.
From the great
Catherine Ponder's book "The Prospering Power of Love" we
can read: "I
want to share with you a special method for getting your thinking into
divine order, promptly and surely. This mystical prayer method
can add years to your life, as it relieves you of unnecessary worry
and friction. It can work wonders in your relationships with
others. It may even turn enemies into friends. And it will
surely add immeasurably to your own mental and physical health, and
of us, I believe, have had our time of worry and anxiety for various
reasons. For some of us our worry is about relationships;
someone close to us, a family member or child. For others our
worry is about our health and for others, wealth or finances. We
must relieve the pressure of this worry and friction in order for the
guidance and direction and the right ideas to come to our awareness.
continue with the wisdom of Catherine Ponder as she tells us how this
method works: - "You can employ this
special method of love secretly - with words. True words are
angels. True words are alive with good, and they produce good.
But there is a definite method by which you can employ words and
produce angelic results: by thinking of the person you are
concerned about as having an angel or higher self (spiritual-self), to
whom you write.
By writing to a person's angel, you establish in
your own thinking a harmonious belief about that person: you
radiate your harmonious feeling to that person subconsciously; and you
also recognize and bring alive in that person's consciousness his own
higher, spiritual self.
There is special power in writing to the
angel of a person with whom you cannot reason or help in the usual
ways. There is something about written words of Truth that
reaches to the judgment seat of such a person, getting past the
emotional blocks of vanity, pride, deception, intellectual arguments,
and penetrating his God-self."
In this simple
wording Catherine Ponder is taking us into the realm of mysticism;
that is the realm of faith and spiritual power that is unknown to
those whom are shackled to the material world and lack faith in the
Great Invisible, Spirit/G-d, or Life Itself. Her book provides
numerous testimonials of people who have used this method successfully
for a variety of issues. Enough testimonials, I might add, that
prove it to be a reliable method for those willing and open-minded
enough to make it a part of their daily spiritual practices.
Writing to an angel is a method to
relieve our mind of stress and anxiety and to place the responsibility
for manifesting the good we desire on our "higher self" or
angel ... that indwelling G-d Intelligence within each of us that has
far more power than most of us can imagine. Even the Master Mind
Jesus declared, "I,
of mine own self can do nothing, it is the Father (Spirit,
Intelligence, Power) that doeth the work." By
writing to an angel we are tapping into the Intelligence, Power and
Spirit that is the "Christ" within and as the apostle
can do all things through Christ (G-d in me) which strengthens
continue to understand more about this method: - "I
first learned of this secret prayer method from studying the mystical,
yet practical writings of Emma Curtis Hopkins. She was known as
the "teacher of teachers" in the metaphysical field at the
turn of the century (19th Century), and taught this secret prayer
method in her master classes in Chicago, San Francisco, and other
cities around the country. Fifty thousand people studied with
her at the turn of the century, long before radio, television and
other mass-media methods of communication were available.
The Holy Bible also contains
numerous passages for invoking angel-powers in times of need.
Abraham promised: "Jehovah before whom I walk will send his
angel with thee, and prosper thy ways." (Genesis 24:40)
If writing to a person's
angel in a general way does not seem to get results, sometimes it is
more powerful to get specific, and to write to the angel of that
person's particular need: such as writing to the Angel of
Protection, the Angel of Healing, the Angel of Love and Marriage, the
Angel of Harmony and Happiness, the Angel of Wisdom and Guidance, the
Angel of Prosperity and Wealth, or the Angel of Spiritual Growth and
Catherine Ponder includes in her
book testimonials regarding financial increase and even great wealth
being demonstrated using this method; both by herself personally and a
businessman who used the method. Let's remind ourselves at this
point that this is practical mysticism ... connecting to our spiritual
self or that higher self of another.
now we learn how to personalize this method: - "The
word angel means "messenger of God." Do not fail to
write to your own angel when it seems that your life is filled with
defeat, or when you are tempted to criticize and condemn yourself.
The Metaphysical Bible Dictionary explains: "The office of
the angels is to guard and guide and direct the natural forces of mind
and body, which have in them the future of the whole man."
Hopkins writes: "The Angel of His Presence accompanies
every man ... This high leadership is every man's heritage. He
need not fear dangerous days or vicious circumstances while he is
aware that his angel goes before him, pleads his cause and defends
interesting to note here that the great healer/teacher, Joel
Goldsmith, also writes of the Presence that goes before us preparing
our way ... as we recognize Its Presence. This I have
experienced personally so I know that it is true. But we must
spend the time necessary in the silence conditioning our mind to
perceive the Presence otherwise It will not come to our awareness.
And finally from
Catherine Ponder: "When
challenges arise, say to yourself: "I have nothing to fear.
My Guardian Angel goes before me, making right my way." ...
Never expect your angel or that of another to honor any requests that
might hurt or harm. Be willing that something infinitely better
than that which you tentatively want will come as you use love's
special method. This will open the way for your good and for the
good of all involved to manifest in an unlimited, satisfying manner.
For invoking love's
special method, meditate often upon the promise of the Psalmist:
No evil shall befall
you. No scourge come near your tent. For he will give his
angels charge of you, to guard you in all your ways." (Psalms
SO IT IS!
