Despite that helpless feeling in the wake of tragedy, we can all join together in prayer—focusing on healing for the waters and inhabitants in the Gulf area. By putting aside our own frustration and asking the divine universal forces for healing, we may all join together in bringing a change.

We know from the research of Dr. Masaru Emoto that water crystals show the positive and negative effect of human words and thoughts, that they seem to react to human energy (see Earth Changes.) Edgar Cayce, too, spoke of the influence of human emotions and thoughts on objects as large and distant as the sun.

By joining together, perhaps we can find light in this disaster. While we may not understand how it works, love and prayer remain powerful and universal. Mr. Cayce reminded us:

And as of old, the prayers of ten may save a city; the prayers of twenty-five may save a nation -- as the prayers and activities of ONE may! but in union there is strength.

--Edgar Cayce reading 1598-2
