The simple act of praising God, or the Law, is one of the most powerful ways of quickening the receipt of our desires, to almost magical proportions. This principle has been around for thousands of years, written about in the Bible and other ancient texts. People in ancient civilizations (and those of today) often brought gifts for their Gods, and sang and danced to express their gratitude.
This does not affect God in any particular way, and you do not gain particular favor from the Universe for your actions. Rather, it affects you personally. Praise is complementary to faith. “Whereas faith is wisdom and understanding, praise is the application of that understanding.” Praise empowers your faith, and quickens your prayer to magnetize all the good around you. And it transforms all that good into the physical, for your utility.
When man praises the Law, he lifts his consciousness upward to a higher realm and becomes a channel to receive all the good that is waiting for him. Praise draws you closer to the Universe and lets you attune to the Divine forces within and around you. Praise is the shortest route to your desires. It expands the mind and opens it up to see greater things, while condemnation and criticism does the opposite.
Notice how praise affects children. They glow with appreciation, and they try even harder to please you. If you criticize them, they turn their eyes downward, and slink away, and fight you the next time you ask them for something. The same principle works in all ways, all the time. Even our physical bodies respond positively to praise—our energy level increases, and even our cells respond favorably.
The invisible ether all around us reacts to all thoughts, good and bad. As praise is given, there is a great expansion of power and intelligence in all things. This increase affects our being, and everything we touch, and every person with which we come into contact.
Although praise does wonders for other people and things, it provides even more benefit to us. Praise changes our entire outlook on life. Where we once saw fault, we now see strength and perfection. We acknowledge the good things, and the beauty in others. We in turn are able to radiate joy, courage, and happiness to all who are affected by our influence. Even our thoughts turn positive, which creates a default mental state of expansion and positive expression.
Praise should be used in anticipation of future blessings, not just for the past. This makes praise an expression of faith of the good things to come.
“When one can sing praises in the face of adversity, the adversity will soon disappear. That is not a promise; that is a Law. Learn to render praise, to be thankful for the good at hand, and you will have found the magic lamp of Spirit.”
To be able to praise the Law when things appear the darkest is the fastest way to get to the lighter side. Our degree of faith in the Law is measured before we receive, not afterwards. And that degree of faith determines what we are capable of receiving.
“The Law of Praise will lift you from sickness to health; it will raise you from ignorance to intelligence, from poverty to affluence, from weakness to strength, from fear to courage. In fact the Law of Praise will promote you in all things and in all ways. Begin using the Law now.”
Regardless of your current condition, it’s a good place to start. Express praise for all the good you have in your life, and for the magnificence of the Universe. It will bring you only good in return.
