Consequently, if you have any concerns about your ability to attend, please pray to accept that which is being provided by the Consciousness of Christ. Following is a sample prayer that you can use as a guide in doing this:

My Prayer of Acceptance

There is only one Life. This Life is good; this Life is God; this Life is my Life now! I know that this Life is a source of Infinite Intelligence, acting in me, through me, and all around me. And even though, I may not know how to provide the means to attend this Sacred Days of Co-Creation Retreat, I know that this Intelligence knows, exactly how to provide everything necessary for me to be in attendance. Therefore, I fully accept the physical and financial means that are so graciously provided by the Presence of the Christ in me. I now release any thought, belief, idea, attitude or suggestion that I might hold that does not support my attendance at this Retreat. As I accept this Good into my life, I give thanks with an open, gracious and joyous heart. Amen.
