Gregg Braden comes from a scientific perspective, quantum physics etc., but I think his views are a useful adjunct to the Seth teachings. Braden quotes Neville Goddard, who has already been mentioned on this forum.



One quote from the video is "If you pray for rain, rain will never happen." What this means is that if you want rain, you must get the feeling that it is already raining. In Goddard's terminology "the feeling of the wish fulfilled".

It's been said on this forum before that news braodcasts which depict violence may actually increase violence. These broadcasts create the feeling of violence.

This may go along the same line--as prayer is intending an outcome

TA, very nice instant feedback. "The power and energy of moods, attitudes, emotions, and behavior".
One of the interesting things about the rice experiment is that there is no "religion" involved at all. Prayer need not be the monopoly of religion.

Emir's Education in the Proper Use of Magical Powers

Come along for adventure in a time when the world was new and death was unknown. As his kingdom quickly becomes crowded by people, plants, and animals who live forever, young Prince Emir must discover the answers to some most perplexing questions

At the behest of his royal parents, Emir undertakes a difficult journey to discover death, understand the reasons for the seasons, and even figure out what life is all about. A large order for such a small prince, but Emir is not alone in his quest. Aided by the muses of Conscience and Inspiration, our young hero finally understands that all living things must have their own seasons of birth, growth and returning to the earth.

Jane Roberts touched millions with her Seth books. Now this same gentle heart reminds spirits young and old to honor the cycle of life, the seasons, and world diversity with this charming fairy tale for all ages

-------
Specifically the proper use of 'rain'...

Leadbetter was an interesting man:
"Originally a priest of the Church of England, his interest in spiritualism caused him to end his affiliation with Anglicanism in favour of the Theosophical Society, where he became an associate of Annie Besant. He became a high-ranking officer of the society, but resigned in 1906 amid a sex scandal. Accusations of his detractors were never proven, and after Annie Besant became President of the Society, he was readmitted in 1908."

He founded a school in Ceylon (Sri Lanka) where I live:

"During 1885, Leadbeater traveled with Henry Steel Olcott (1832–1907), first President of the Theosophical Society, to Burma, and Ceylon (now Sri Lanka). In Ceylon they founded the English Buddhist Academy, with Leadbeater staying there to serve as its first headmaster under very austere conditions. This school gradually expanded to become Ananda College, which now has more than 6,000 students and has a building named for Leadbeater."

This is a good choice for videos.  I started with 'Zero Point' back in the Drunvelo days .
A friend of mine's lunch room has a 'FREE' bring one take one book shelf that I've given
all my Gregg books to.  I also liked 'Fractal Time'.  I 'only' give away books that I like,
I know they will end up with the right person.

About the water,  I've placed a amethyst cluster in my gravity water filter  :)

OK I'm seriously behind on this topic but will add my thoughts even though they may be outdated at this point.

I think of prayer as a tool for focusing the mind. Like meditations, mantras, staring at a flame, prayer beads. The wands of Harry Potter. Or Bishops.

Great Braden video! "If we prayed for rain, rain could never happen. Because the moment you pray for something to occur, you've just acknowledged that it does not exist." Seth said it. Abraham-Hicks said it. It makes perfect sense to me. Praying or creating from the point of view of lack of something only brings more of the same. You get what you concentrate upon.

"A generation that hates war will not bring peace. A generation that loves peace will bring peace."
—SS Chapter 12: Session 550, September 28, 1970

Gregg Braden has popped up in my radar in the past, but I'd never actually listened to him until now. He makes sense. The ultrasound was amazing. I just hope the woman has resolved whatever issues gave her the tumor to begin with.

I remember hearing about the Maharishi Effect on crime rates in the past, hard to tell whether the reported study results are real or not. They've been questioned, but Braden makes reference to the effects and others are now studying.

Joe Dispenza has conducted live global streaming meditations in the past in order to study the results.  I participated in the first one, but hadn't heard any more about it so I don't know if and when he continued. He did say he found out he needed more people to participate to make the meditation more effective, which Braden mentions in the video.

Lynn McTaggart is doing some experimenting herself: https://lynnemctaggart.com/the-intention-experiment/

Now I want to do a rice experiment of my own.  ;)

Something that Braden says in his book "The Divine Matrix" is that if you "desperately" want something you may not get it. The reason may be that your desperation may indicate your lack of confidence. A recent event occurred to me of which I can't give explicit details. A young relative of mine had a health problem. I had a chat with her and gave her a bit of commonsense advice on diet and exercise. The only prayer I said was one I commonly use mentally, "May all beings be well and happy". Within a week her problem was resolved.

I've always thought of the typical approach to prayer as formalized worrying. And included in the process is the "worrier" casting all power outside him or herself. The result in most cases is a powerless human reinforcing a given set of fears.

Hi Maria, welcome to the forum.
You are quite right if you are referring to Christian prayers. I stopped saying the Lord's prayer years ago. If I address someone called "Our Father", as you say I am assuming that God is outside me.
If there is one thing I have learned from Seth it is that Divinity is All That Is, and I am a part of All That Is.
When I say to myself "May all beings be well and happy", I am not addressing anyone outside myself. I am merely getting in touch with my own Divinity. I am using those words to induce a particular feeling within myself, because feeling is the prayer.
