Shamanic Prayer for Manifesting Power

A Shamanic Prayer for Manifesting Power is a good place to begin to start gathering and storing more energy.

Jose Stevens writes:

In order to manifest we have to generate the power to propel intent into physical reality. Although we are each born with an ample supply of power it tends to leak away wastefully through bad habits, worry, negative thinking and a host of faulty behaviors. Eventually, we become depleted and wonder why we have such trouble manifesting anything. All shamans know that to manifest something requires juice and we need to stop up the leaks and then start gathering and storing more energy.

Prayer for Manifesting Power is good place to begin to start gathering and storing more energy:

Great Spirit
You are all powerful.

Since you create every particle of this great universe, millions of times each second,
There is nothing quite as powerful as you are.

I am contemplating your awesome power.
I am seeing, experiencing, and knowing it.
I am being aware of it all the time.
I am learning about power this way.

I am asking you to funnel this power through the cells of my body.
I am experiencing it as light and vitality.
I am doing this process often.

I am feeling your energy from the planet coming up through my feet.
I am feeling your power coming up my spine,
I am feeling your energy expanding into my chest,
I am feeling your power flowing out of my arms and hands,
I am feeling your vitality flow through my throat,
And up the base of my skull.
I am feeling your power shoot out the back top of my head.

I am feeling the great vitality of the Sky flowing down into the forward top of my head,
Down my face and throat,
Down either side of my spine into the base of my spine,
Mixing and rising again up my spine in a continuous flow.

I am feeling the powerful vitality of your environment:
Your forests, plants, animals, mountains, deserts, seas
Your sun, moon, stars, wind, and clouds
Your earth, air, fire, and water
Pouring into me through all my pores.

Every cell of my body is vibrating with your great charge.
Every atom of my body is glowing with exquisite light.
Every electron is jetting a tiny vibrant blue flame of life.
And this massive collection of flames turning Violet, forms an immense towering pyre radiating out through my body.

A great charge of your power is collecting in my reservoirs.
Your energy is flowing into my navel and storing there,
Your vitality is flowing into my heart and storing there,
Your power is flowing into my brow and storing there.

And each time I follow this practice I am storing ever more of your great power and vitality.

This is my birthright.
To use as I please to manifest my dreams,
To create happiness and joy,
To create peace and prosperity,
To alleviate suffering,
To bring others to your light as well.

Spirit with your support,
I am powerful,
I am most powerful,
I am enormously powerful.

Thank you for making me so powerful.
Thank you for providing all these resources for free.
Thank you for reminding me how to use them well.
Thank you for your direction.

I will use your power wisely to promote my great dream.

Amen.

The Seven Levels of Shamanic Prayer

From a shamanic point of view there are Seven Levels of Prayer. There are seven states of perception that lead to different forms of prayers and these are at times antagonist it to each other.

These different states of perception account for vastly different beliefs about reality and you will find people in every culture of the world who adhere to one or another of them. The latter ones are usually ascribed to Mystics and are more difficult for the average person to understand. At the risk of vastly oversimplifying seven states of perception corresponding levels of Prayer.

  1. Kill my enemies; be strong over them.
  2. Please don’t punish me! I’ve been bad; save me.
  3. Make me Rich! Give me, give me, give me. You were great as long as you give me.
  4. Life is so hard! Help me, give me strength, help my loved ones. You have the power to help. I am so confused! I know you were there but why don’t you help me help me, damn it?
  5. Thank you for providing for me. I love you! You are wonderful!
  6. Thank you for making me in your image. Allow me to know you more and more. I am your servant. Thy will be done.
  7. You and I are one. I am peace. Make it so. I am that. I am who I am.
