Julie Jurgan – About Prayer
A prayer is a really powerful, spiritual practice. Unfortunately more and more people are stepping back from that kind of connection with the Universal Life Force as it is so close associated with religion.
“A religion is an organized collection of beliefs, cultural systems, and world views that relate humanity to an order of existence. Many religions have narratives, symbols, and sacred histories that aim to explain the meaning of life, the origin of life, or the Universe.”
– Wikipedia 2015
Over the centuries the missuse of religious practice has caused deep wounds in our own belief systems, hearts and souls. But the denial of the longing for a deep connection with the universe does not bring us any further. Its time to heal the wounds by stepping into a new form of connection. Walking away from blind belief systems but exploring what is all about by paving our own path. Our very personal connection with all that is. You don´t need to belief in any religion to practice spirituality or prayer. Furthermore finding your own words, truth and expression is the most powerful gift you can give to yourself and the world. As your soul is the unique expression of the Life force.
Somehow I have the feeling that we are just at the turning point to step into the next ignorance if we turn our back against spiritual practice no matter if its religiously based or personally. By saying that I mean, that we closing ourselves up to any kind of connection with the universe and its expressions. But I do think its even the very most time to step into the power that lies within and without as these can´t be seperated. It is time to realize how powerful we really are, if we allow life to work through us.
There is a deep longing inside all of us, the longing to connect with all that is. The Whole, the One, the Source. Prayer can be a way to step into that power of the soul to remind us that we are always connected and have always been. Seperation is an illusion.
I am just in the process myself to open up to a new form of thinking and practicing prayers to allow them being part of my daily spiritual practice. From my own experience I can say, that miracles do happen..to those you do allow them to happen. To those who allow to be moved by life, God, the source, universal mind..whatever you call it.
At the moment I do read a very intersting book by Ernest Holmes – therefor I would like to share a prayer with you, I have been practicing today. It might inspires you…it might resonates with you…it might not. You can meditate on prayer, read them, speak them out loud. Let them become a daily practice to remind yourself how powerful and beautiful you really are. Because you are all that is and all that is is You!
The prayer for today from Ernest Holmes is called: I keep the promise
“I shall keep the promise that I have made to myself.
I shall never again tell myself that I am poor, sick, weak nor unhappy.
I shall not lie to myself any more, but shall daily speak the truth to my inner Soul, telling It that It is wonderful and marvelous; that It is One with the Great Cause of all Life; Truth, Power and Action.
I shall whisper these things into my Soul until it breaks forth into songs of joy with the realization of Its Limitless possibilites.
I shall assure my Soul”

Do you think, that the work of a medium is contacting and talking to the dead?
You are right, it is an important part of a medium’s work, to prove the continous existence of the human soul. To give evidence of the survival of your Loved-Ones as well as to give messages from the spirit world. But not only your Loved-Ones can bring words of comfort but also other spirits (Spirit Guides) can deliver words of wisdom, give healing, guidance and support to you. A medium can beautifully connect the two worlds and help people recover from the trauma of missing their dear ones post their demise. In addition to that can a connection with the othe realm a very healing and profound experience as there is so much more than we can see with our naked eyes
This other aspect of the work that a medium can do, is, to offer spiritual guidance through a psychic reading. In this case, the medium connects with your soul, rather than with the spiritual realms. The session with a medium should be like, a look in the mirror and just reflect yourself as pure as you are. Considering the free will of everyone, the right to make choices and the understanding, that personal responsibility can never be given to anyone other then their own selves.
There are many different mediums, with individual abilities, aspects and tools they use for their work. There are two levels on which a (developed) medium could work:
Mediumistic Level – ( Connecting with the spiritual world)
On this level the medium connects with the spiritual world, it is important to have a reason, the right purpose before doing that, as well as good Intentions. These depends on the mediums personal development and Clients requirements as well as environmental factors:
Atmosphere is very important for any kind of energetic work
These reason or purpose to connect with the spiritual realms could be:
Evidence of Survival – Contacting with loved Ones
Channeling words of wisdom – Philosophy- Guidance – Inspiration
Healing energies – Healers/ Trance Healing
Phenomena – Physical Mediumship
While the medium connects with the spiritual realms,a download of wisdom, energies from another sphere happens. ( A lot of this depends on the mediums education, training and personal development stage).
The contact with Loved ones from the spiritual world is possible, but it is up to every medium, if they can provide evidence of the continuous existence of the human soul. This evidence could include: gender, relationship to client, age, name, how the loved passed over, personality, shared memories, hobbies, jobs. If this happens correctly the client is able to identify the Loved-One and also builds trust on the medium.
Environment has a huge impact on the quality of the session. A bond of mutual trust and acceptance between client and medium is most desirable. A good medium is a channel, through which the spiritual world is working. Hence a lot of session clarity depends on the mediums abilities and their stage of development.
Psychic Level – ( Soul to Soul Connection)
On the Psychic Level the medium connects with the clients soul. It is well-known as the Auric field, the energy body that surrounds our physical body also know as the Aura. The medium is able to read emotions, memories and happenings of client’s life by scanning his/her auric field. Emotions, thoughts, actions and memories are stored in this energetic body. I believe, that soul is on an eternal journey, therefore the auric field is continuously changing, with every new experience and thought we have.
A spiritual guidance adds more clarity of a situation or problem and offers different aspects how to deal with it. It also encourages client to follow their soul’s path, which we all know, but sometimes just need to be reminded.
The psychic reading can be for:
Finding your true potential
Becoming aware of obstacles and blockages
Raising personal awareness
How to unfold your spiritual potential
Reflecting yourself as pure as you are
The mediums work is never a future prediction in any way. The medium may just guide us with possible outcomes, however it is up to you to make the necessary changes in their lives. It is all about our personal responsibility and we can´t give this to any one else.
During a session both of the above mentioned techniques can be used to help the client. The client can make a preference of what kind of a session they would want.
