Miracle Music Answered Prayer

I was watching a video, a documentary…

…an Hindu/Indian man talking about enlightenment, that the Maker, the creator, lives inside of us. And he was able to heal himself from physical ailments by praying for an hour or so. And he believes in this collective consciousness, that if we expand our consciousness to those around us, and the environment, the better it is for us. This video is below:

This is not unlike Albert Einstein’s line of thinking:

“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”


My experience in life so far has taught me this, too. I was in the hospital and I was so open to the world, so open to those around me. I literally felt open. I was eating a vegetarian diet, and I was feeling the pain and love of those around me. I was talking to as many people as possible, trying to learn from them and to help them however way I could. And yes, it sounds crazy, but I heard them in my head, too, an audible voice. Nothing scary, but maybe hearing my name called out, in their own voices. Am I crazy? Maybe. Samuel, too, heard his name called out… (1 Samuel 3). But once we understand that we are all a part of the universe, we are all connected, than it doesn’t sound so crazy. The body, the ego, is what is blocking us, limiting us from truly seeing our inner selves, and our connection to one another.

So after watching the video above, I decided to pray. I sort of knew a few things I wanted to pray about, but since God knows your heart even before you pray, I sort of just drifted into some thoughts here and there. I was hearing traffic around me, so I wished that there would be music but I decided not to do it and just focus on praying. Then I started to delineate what feelings were my body, and which were me. “Danielle is not her thoughts. Danielle is not her hunger.” Then I found myself thinking about my brother, and found a novel thing to tell him next time I see him to give him hope.

Then I also kept thinking about the question, “Who am I?” I sometimes feel like I can be this, or that. And the feeling kept coming back that I can be whoever I want to be.

And then something curious happened… so in context, I was having internet trouble early in the morning, so I restarted the modem. We had been listening to music all night long but it must have been interrupted because of the connection issues. Around an hour or so ago, I power-cycled the modem. I prayed a specific prayer. for a healthy baby. It was heavy on my heart. It ended with, “I desperately need this, God, because I want to protect my relationship with Andrew”. As soon as I prayed it, to the point of tears, it was at that moment that the music suddenly came back on. It is a heavenly music, very soft and sweet piano and strings music. I believe God not only heard my prayer, but answered it. And all He asked of me, I believe, is to share my craziness, my foolishness for Him. “We are fools for Christs’ sake. (1st Corinthians 4:10)

“I like your Christ, I do not like your Christians. Your Christians are so unlike your Christ.”

― Mahatma Gandhi

I read this quote a long time ago, and it regularly comes to mind. Sometimes, as Christians, we go through the motions. We go to church, worship, we pray every so often, read the bible, and live about our daily lives, thinking this is enough. That is all well and good, but I think we are called for more than that. Often, and rightly so, we Christians see Jesus as our Saviour, that He gives us a second chance, that He saves our souls from total ruin. The problem is that we stop there. We are happy that we are saved, but that’s as much “religion” as we want. But if you accept that Jesus was resurrected from the dead, and the resurrection power of the holy spirit is in you, and as Jesus once said, “You will do even greater things, as I will be going to the Father” (John 14:12-14), shouldn’t we not  simply worship Jesus but be like Him? Shouldn’t we strive not only to heal ourselves by accepting Jesus as the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6), but to heal others, heal the world, and fight Satan and His temptations, the way Jesus did? It seems like a tall order… but we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us (Philippians 4:13).

For all of those with the courage to read this, I pray that you may be empowered to get to know yourselves as you truly are, the way God knows you. Not what you do, or who you are related with, but who YOU are. And know that you are accepted and loved no matter what, scars and all.
