After spending some time looking around Findhorn and admiring the eco houses we heard that there was an early morning singing /chanting session that sounded interesting and was free…

we got up early and headed over joining in the songs that we sing in rounds in several languages ( thankfully written down )ranging from latin monk like chants to African prayer songs..

it was all really uplifting and at times magical. There were at least 60 of us in the room and there was an opportunity to ask questions.

The main reason id wanted to come to Findhorn was that this was the home of Eileen Caddy who had channelled all these books about her guidance from her I AM PRESENCE.

now this is what I really wanted to know and experience as it was my I AM PRESENCE that had set me on this wonderful but difficult spiritual journey and so far this home of the I AM PRESENCE had mentioned anything but that , so I dared to ask
” where is all the I AM PRESENCE here ? ”
“why is no one mentioning or invoking their mighty I AM PRESENCE ? ”
As leaders of this session I’d have thought there would be some mention of it , some blessing and definitely some protectiin called in for the group ?

I was met with stoney silence and then almost anger that I’d dared to mention THE I AM PRESENCE. ..how dare I…they were leading thus session , who was I to ask such a thing ?
I was a little taken a back but after being put in my lowly place I kept quiet and the singing resumed.

Then it started…a voice seemingly from behind..
“SAY THE I AM PRAYER ”
I ignored it.
“SAY THE I AM PRAYER ”
No..I thought
“SAY THE I AM PRAYER ”
I can’t just say it…I’m already unpopular. .its not really the time or place..

the voice was insistant , firm and well repetative..
“SAY THE I AM PRAYER ”
OK , but I don’t want to…

I raised my hand at the end of the song and a puzzled song leader asked ” yes ? ”

“Could I say the I AM prayer ? ”
“What ? ,no…this is a singing workshop…maybe at the end..”
“Ok “..
Everyone was looking at me and I felt very uncomfortable. .that wasn’t embarrassing I thought..
” what are you doing ??? ” Simon asked , feeling very uncomfortable as he was sitting next to the nutter everyone kept looking at
“I’m being prompted to say the prayer..”

Simon just looked at me with that ” you’re a nutter look ..

the whole session was drawing to a close and the insistant voice returned so I reluctantly rose to my feet and in a rather booming voice recited the I AM PRAYER

for those intrigued it goes something like this…

OUR FATHER WHO ART IN HEAVEN
HALLOWED BE THY NAME I AM.
I AM THY KINGDOM COME
I AM ON EARTH EVEN AS I AM IN HEAVEN.
I AM GIVING THIS DAY DAILY BREAD TO ALL
I AM FORGIVING ALL LIFE
EVEN AS I AM ALL LIFE FORGIVING ME
I AM LEADING ALL LIFE AWAY FROM TEMPTATION
I AM DELIVERING ALL LIFE FROM EVERY EVIL CONDITION
I AM THE KINGDOM
I AM THE POWER AND I AM THE GLORY OF GOD
IN ETERNAL MANIFESTATION
ALL THIS I AM

silence…everyone looking at me..maximum embarrassment. .time for a quick exit..
” im not even going to ask ” said Simon..

Heading for a quick cuppa it wasn’t long before several of the group arrived. Although I tried to hide , one by one many came up to me and asked about the prayer. .

many had been really moved, all wanted copies…one guy had been waiting for a version of the Lords prayer that he could use as he want religious but liked the essence of the prayer. .another woman would take it back to China. ..another to her A.A.meetings…it seemed it made quite an impression… the power of the I AM
