Everybody Talks About the Weather

By Rev. Marla Sanderson

You may already know this, but it’s one of Life’s best-kept secrets:

Consciousness CREATES conditions.

When we give in to fear OF conditions rather than recognize our power over conditions, our consciousness of fear works against the very thing we want to change.

I enjoy watching The Weather Channel, and though I tend to be a pretty happy-go-lucky person, it’s obvious something big is going on with our weather. As I write this, severe droughts in one part of the country threaten food production, and floods in another wash away crops.

The alarms about “global warming” and “climate change” have been filled with fear and blame. Has this made things better? No, it hasn’t.

The current mentality around the global climate is an example of conditions creating consciousness. The more we think about the problem, the more we fear it, the more energy we put into a potential catastrophe, the more we create just that.

Just like “fighting for peace,” it’s backwards. How can this do any good?

Think about it! When more people produce negative energy, things get worse. There is a power in this universe and we use it every day—in fact, every millisecond. We can use it for good or we can pervert it with negative energy. When we use it for good, things get better. When we don’t, things get worse. Negative thinking is a prayer for what we don’t want.

You have the power to choose which way you want to go. Blaming others only serves to justify anger and the next step is to dig in with righteousness. Crusading to get others to agree about how bad things are or who’s to blame puts more people on a negative track.

In Spiritual Mind Treatment—scientific prayer—I turn away from appearances, give them no power, and focus on the perfect outcome. Conditions are the result of past thinking, and to change conditions I must change my thinking first. I take my energy away from the problem and open to a solution.

It isn’t easy to look at a person suffering from a disease and picture them whole and healthy without trying to figure out how it will happen, but that’s exactly what we have to do. Since we don’t actually do the healing, or even know how it takes place, we leave it all to the Power that does.

So I ask you to join with me in prayer for the harmony of our global climate and healing of the consciousness of our world around this condition.

Can we do this? Can we turn things around? Yes, I believe we can if we get enough people in alignment, and it has to start somewhere. Why not here?

To start, bless our global climate through positive attitude and affirmative prayer. Think about it:

  • You cannot do any harm by being positive.
  • It won’t cost a cent.
  • The more positive you become, the better you’ll feel.
  • Nobody wants a natural disaster.
  • That puts us all on the same side.
  • That much consciousness is POWERFUL.
  • Who could be against it?

If you agree with me, and think “yes, let’s pray for the consciousness of “those people” or “that situation,” recognize that’s just blame dressed up in righteousness.

Remember, you are dealing with CONSCIOUSNESS, and it’s important you treat your own consciousness first.

This doesn’t mean you don’t take appropriate action—but with the proper attitude you can do it with faith and confidence rather than anger and fear. Use the same Power That Created the Entire Universe and allow It to bring intelligence, harmony, and balance to the situation in whatever glorious ways It sees fit.

Remember these elements of positive prayer:

1) You are dealing with an Infinitely Intelligent Creative Power, so nothing is impossible.

2) Your thoughts use this power to create conditions. New thoughts create new conditions.

3) Be clear and focused. You are not trying to solve every problem in the world. You are doing this one thing for now.

4) Yes, this is possible. Be thankful for the positive affect you’re having on the world—it starts with you.

5) Thank God or whatever power you believe to be capable of accomplishing this task. Remember, to the One who created all this, it’s a piece of cake.

Remember, we are creating a NEW consciousness – a NEW cause. And we are allowing Divine Intelligence to work it out. Think of it as an experiment.

There are two ways you can participate:

I am creating a discussion thread on our new website. You can log on with our free trial and post your positive affirmation or prayer. (You must sign in before you can take part in the discussion forum.) While you’re there, feel free to look around and make full use of the site. If you like this kind of message, you might even want to join. And/or…

Go to our Facebook page (New Thought Global Network) and post your positive, affirmative prayers there.

Visit as often as you like. Read and absorb as much as you care to. Place an affirmation or prayer for harmony of our consciousness and for the corresponding healing of this global condition. Do daily prayer on your own and keep your thoughts positive and expectant.

While you’re visiting, please remember:

  • Keep your remarks positive and impersonal.
  • No blame or fear.
  • Focus on the outcome, not the “how.”
  • The thread is for prayer, not politics.
  • And one more thing – please don’t try to sell anything.

We’ll remove any posts that don’t fit these guidelines so we’ll have a continuous chain of positive prayers for the harmony and balance of our climate. We don’t want the old conversation. We want a new one, so if there’s doubt, we’ll throw it out.

People of all faiths or no faith are invited. We appreciate your sincere desire to help this along with your prayers and participation. Please pass this message on to anyone or everyone you know. Picture viral.

Remember, consciousness creates.

We want to create from that intelligent, harmonious place in Divine Mind that exists above all conditions—that higher place in consciousness that knows perfection and has the power to transform all conditions.

This power is already on our side. It’s our job to get in tune with it.
