The Power of Prayer
Yet another long post, but I really just want to share how amazing the power of prayer and faith is.
Classic scenario: Ghost story telling time in campus
A batchmate started talking about having visions and being able to predict certain life events. Ok, I can handle that.
But here comes a freshman who I barely knew for a day, who kept on saying "Yeah, I know that feeling. I experience that too"
Now, I was playing along and giving them the benefit of the doubt, who doesn't love ghost stories?
Then the stories started getting a bit uh creepier, and I was feeling a chill coming from behind me. Woah, I might be getting carried away, I thought to myself, and started calming my heart down with prayer, which I mostly sing.
Knowing myself that I have already calmed down, I was still feeling chills so I got confused when I realized that the energy was moving towards a certain direction.
It was right at this moment that the girl kept on murmuring "No, no, stop sharing stories" and acting like she's distancing herself from some invisible entities.
No one was paying her any attention, but it all suddenly dawned on me that it was her causing the mild "blackhole of turbulent emotions"
Scared that she might discover what I am, I played along and acted curious about her "gift", which turned out to be a bad BAD decision.
I kept singing and declaring my faith to myself as she kept on warning everybody about having a bad feeling about the last person who kept on sharing ghost stories.
As we were leaving, she suddenly warned me not to touch a campus cat while she was getting away from it, giving everyone present a meaningful look. I complied at first as not to offend her beliefs. But being a crazy cat person that I am, I couldn't resist cuddling with one of the precious best friends I made in school who always brighten my mood up. Hate to break it to you babe, but you are missing out on how cats are such beautiful and lovely creatures 😁
Also for me, what you don't believe won't hurt / affect you.
As I got up and wished the cat well, the girl suddenly blocked my way and stared right through my eyes. I was caught off guard, but I managed to stare back with an innocent expression, averting my gaze at the last minute to break the onslaught of negative emotions escaping through her eyes.
It then got to me that I couldn't identify narcissists right away because I keep avoiding eye contact and I keep spreading positive vibes to people, which was what I did when I tried to get along with this kid.
Poor kid, now our schoolmates have identified her as a weirdo, I mean, what sane empath would reveal what they are to people who are practically strangers?
Good thing I went to eat out with my good friends right after that as I continue singing out my faith. When the power of prayer came up as a topic, I am so glad that I can agree with it wholeheartedly.
So this is why we pray without ceasing, I felt instantly released from the awful vibes which haunted me for more or less an hour - which was a big improvement for me.
Not gonna lie though, the healer part of me keeps on worrying on how to patch things up with this girl right away. She seems a good kid with a lot of potential. I don't want her to walk the crooked path of narcissists, and I think it's not too late for her, hopefully.
