Kuan Yin Speaks. Heaven is not deaf.
"Good morning! This is Kuan Yin.
Most humans have had the experience of asking God for help in some way, and then feeling sad and disappointed when it seems like nothing happens. For one thing, what a person asks for might not be in alignment with their higher soul's wisdom, and for another what is asked for from the human level of consciousness might simply not be what is in their karmic blueprint to achieve.
Supposedly Jesus said,
"Ask believing and you will receive it."
One could wish that it had been phrased or translated differently.
Perhaps it might be more effective to state your case, and then listen for guidance from that which knows the best way, God surely, and your own higher self. Let's try,
"State your case, why you want it, what you will do with it when and if you get it, then be quiet and listen in your heart."
Some have looked down on the practice of repeated prayer or mantra.
It is true that God heard you the first time.
Effective repetitive chanting is not for God, it is for you. By replacing toxic mind chatter with some higher expression, such as a sacred mantra or heartfelt prayer, you begin to raise your own energy, frequency, and light. Stillness meditation opens the gates of your inner being. In this way you may become able to hear and see the impulses of the Divine that shine light on your pathway. Your immortal soul, in all its infinite wisdom and potentiality knows the way.
How do we access this wisdom in a practical way? For one thing, stop directing traffic. The human mind thinks it knows the best course of action, and will try to jump in and present that. Bring yourself back gently, over and over and over again to a place of quiet. No up nor down, light or dark, no individuality, just smiling beingness. Chant something that is precious to you silently until you don't need to anymore. There is just stillness. This is where the voice that you will identify as not your own will speak. Allow it.
Use your discernment to assess that voice, the dark has a subtle intention to lead you astray. If this voice says something you know is ego-centered, it is not the true voice. Invoke protection always.
You might say,
"Dear my own high soul self, dear all the beings of light. Dear Angels, Buddhas, Heaven's animals, my Heaven's team, spiritual fathers and mothers, Dear the soul of the Source itself, I love you, bless you, honor and thank you all. Will you please surround me, shine in my heart, and protect me as I chant and listen for guidance? Help me know the true voice of my God self. Thank you."
Like anything, you will get better at it the more you do it. It will feel like home.
You can tell your mind that you want it to be a true light servant. The mind is powerful beyond your comprehension, and can be a most versatile tool for your journey, or a formidable enemy and blockage of that same journey. It is so important to discipline the mind. It will not go away without a struggle, and you do need it to be on this planet. If you let it go its own unfettered way, it will lead you down dark, time-wasting paths. That is why chanting continuously creates habit pathways in the mind and brain that will not be distracted easily. That will be your go-to space of being when things go haywire, as the saying goes.
Use the mind to take you places you have not yet imagined, and then stay in quiet Divine presence. Listen. Can you imagine what your life will look like with your Immortal Soul in charge?
Let go. Let God. Really. Let go. You will not fall, you will ascend.
That is all. I love you."
