“I AM Needed” img_0847

One day mid-week, I found myself working at home, writing, networking, and so on, with no clients scheduled.  I tend to prefer days when I have clients scheduled, because then I feel “needed.”  Of course, God’s Presence through us is needed every day, but there are times when we may experience that truth more than others.

To remind myself that I AM (meaning the Divine Presence in each of us) needed every day, I affirmed “I AM needed” a couple of times that day.  The power of I AM statements is well-documented; my favorite book on this subject is The I AM Discourses, which channels Saint Germain.

In the evening, I decided to prepare my recycling and then take out both my trash and recycling.  I thought about activities I would like to attend, but for which I did not want to spare the funds, and I thought about staying home and writing my book.  While humbly squatting on the kitchen floor and loving the earth by sorting recyclable items, I prayed, “I AM needed.  God, how AM I needed?”  What I heard was, “write your book.”  So, I planned to take out the recycling, go for a walk, eat, and write my book that evening.

Next, I took out my recycling and my trash and then walked along the sidewalk towards the Twinbrook Recreation Center and park where I like to walk among the tall trees and over the twin brooks.

I had hardly walked down the sidewalk along busy Twinbrook Parkway, when I saw a young boy sitting awkwardly by the sidewalk with his backpack.  There was no one close by, so I asked him, “Is everything okay?”

The boy replied, “No, I’m lost. I’m on the phone with my mother, but for some reason, my phone app isn’t working her to show her where I am.”

I told him I would be happy to stay with him until his mother got there.  I realized that it can be very hard to describe where we were, because even describing the nearby entrance to my apartment complex is complicated by similar names and signs along Twinbrook Parkway.  So, I offered to speak with his mother on his phone.

We kept communicating with his mom, who seemed to be taking an unexpectedly long time to find him, which I understand because of the difficulty of describing which sign we were standing by at that point.

Finally, the boy said, “I see her,” and pointed to her walking on the sidewalk.  I could barely see her in the distance, as he started to run and turned briefly towards me to throw the word “thanks” over his shoulder.

I followed him, saying, “I want to make sure it’s your mother,” and hurried up the sidewalk as well.

When his mother got to me, she hugged me, as she felt so relieved and grateful for the help finding her son.  I hugged the boy as well, and we all left on our now happy ways.

It turned out that, only about five minutes after my prayer, I AM was needed through me!

A simple prayer, and apparently a prayer that God will hurry to answer:  “I AM needed.  God, how AM I needed?”  What will the world be like if more of us pray this prayer?  A wonderful, maybe even heavenly place indeed!

Love and light,

About selfrealizationtherapy

I am a healer, life coach, author, and spiritual teacher. While I am ordained in the Christian tradition, I have also studied Eastern spiritual disciplines and practices, including Raja Yoga Meditation; Intuitive Coaching; Reiki; Falun Gong; and other forms of energy healing for both people and animals. I am available for distance healing and spiritual coaching via phone, Skype, WhatsApp, or Facetime; please email me at: carol.dodson.richardson@gmail.com to schedule a session. My goal is to assist you in connecting with your Higher Self to find fulfillment, peace, health, and happiness in life. I typically work with people for about six weeks, and then they either take classes with me and advance more, or simply go their happy way. While I cannot guarantee results, many clients find that in a few short weeks, more is accomplished than could be with years of traditional talk therapy. Born on the equator in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, I grew up moving back-and-forth between Africa and the United States my whole childhood and youth. We lived in three different countries in Africa, and three different states in the USA. I now live in Maryland, close to Washington, DC. I was widowed at the age of 28 when my 34-year-old husband died suddenly of a cerebral aneurysm that hemorrhaged, leaving me with an infant and a toddler. This crisis led me to believe that God loves us even when "bad" things happen, and also led me to pursue spirituality and become a minister. In 1996, thanks to "Autobiography of a Yogi" by Paramhansa Yogananda, and a meditation class called Raja Yoga, I started on an Eastern spiritual path, a journey which included becoming a healer and a mystic. On Thursday, May 27, 2010, I experienced what I call an Enlightenment Vision, in which I ascended and was blessed by Ascended Masters of many faiths: Master Lao Tzu, Mother Mary, Mary Magdalene, Jesus Christ, Lord Buddha, Paramahansa Yogananda, High Priest Melchizedek, Lady Kwan Yin, Master Usui, and then by the Seven Archangels of the Seven Rays. After this vision, the teachings in Higher Consciousness began. Apparently, my crown chakra was opened, and direct contact with the Ascended Masters has been possible ever since. My message to everyone is: this is possible for you to achieve as well, although getting there is not necessarily quick or easy. With a Master of Divinity degree from Vanderbilt University Divinity School, a Master of Public Health degree from the University of Texas Health Center at Houston, and a Bachelor of Science degree in psychology from Texas Christian University, I perceive a unity in my readings in Eastern religions and in Biblical studies. As a result, I believe the original message of Jesus Christ was and is a call to Self-Realization, which may also be called following The Way (a term used in the book of Acts by very early "Christians," although they did not call themselves "Christians;" they called themselves Followers of the Way. The Way, or the Tao consists of the practice of peace and love in every moment, honoring the Divine Presence within ourselves as well as within others. The Way of early Christianity was a spiritual practice which similarly focused not on the material world, but on the practice of Divine Presence within the earthly realm. When we practice The Way, or The Tao, we become one with Divine Peace, Love, and even bliss. When we attain this, we experience the "Kingdom of God" or Reign of God, within ourselves, Nirvana or possibly Samadhi. Achieving this Way within each of ourselves is the only way we will be able to usher in the Reign of Divine presence among us all here on earth. The ultimate goal of The Way, and of Self-Realization, is the attainment of unity with the Divine Consciousness, or Buddha-Consciousness or Christ-Consciousness, within, and beyond our normal mortal mind. This Unity-Consciousness is eternal, but begins in the here and now. May it be so.
