Calling All Hummingbirds Prayer For 2012 to Invoke or Invite
When we ask for something to come into our lives, how do we go about asking for it? How much control do we have in the outcome? How much influence can be have outside our own “space”? Calling all hummingbirds, is it possible to invoke or invite the energy of the hummingbird into our lives, or anything else?
Can We Invoke Hummingbirds?
Is it possible to invoke hummingbirds into our lives? What does it mean to “invoke”? The word invoke has been used in many ways, with the original meaning in both Latin and French meaning “to call”. From an energy-awareness level I see that to approach a desired outcome by “invoking” carries more weight in the desire or plea. There is a vested interest when we invoke. There is also greater involvement by the will. To invoke is also a more conscious act, very yang in its approach.
What about invite? To invite is often more “polite” in its nature. Seen intuitively it appears to be more of an opening of the door than the more direct statement made when we invoke. To invite has the air of the yin energy, more of the heart-felt feeling than the conscious asking.
Is one better than the other? There is no clear cut answer. Here we delve into mathematics, the weighing and measuring of our desires, perceptions and our own value. We must also bring into consideration our free-will, and ask the question: when we invoke is the freewill of another still respected? When we ask does it come from a place of love already overflowing, or from an empty space?
Calling All Hummingbirds
We can always ask. The dividing line doesn’t really exist, and no matter which way we look at it we will always find a mix that crosses our openness for the “greater good” with our ability to ask for something clearly and well-defined. Sometimes we need to defer the outcome of our prayers to a sign that comes suddenly and unexpected just so we don’t block the experience with our all-so-powerful mental self.
What is a prayer? It is a formula and space that we create, with the element of time twisted in so that what we ask for has a chance to occur. Does the answer to our prayer come from within, or from some cosmic force? Perhaps we must settle for the answer: both. Let us pray.
