‘TRUTH IS STRANGER THAN FICTION.’ – Mark Twain
Many ancient societies believed in the existence of the spiritual world.
For instance, ancient African cultures claimed the spiritual world existed and they believed spirits influenced people’s health, and material success. They thus offered sacrifices to spirits to make them happy. Also, ancient North Americans believed in spiritual entities and claimed they descended from the spiritual world and could interact with human beings.
Besides Americans, ancient Arabians believed in the existence of the Djinn, which were spiritual beings that could be both good and evil. They believed the Djinn could shapeshift and perform human activities such as eating or sleeping.
For this reason, it could be impossible to convince ancient folks that spirits were a product of hallucinations because they firmly knew that spiritual beings existed.
However, most folks in the modern world don’t believe in the spiritual world. Our mechanistic view of the world has made us to only believe in the physical realm. Furthermore, the fact that most of us have never come into contact with spirits or ghosts has made us firmly believe that they don’t exist.
But are we right?
We are wrong because the spiritual world exists and most of us can’t see spirits because the modern society lost its connection to the spirit world. We focus so much on the material world and for this reason, our consciousness levels have become too low for us to perceive the spiritual world.
Furthermore, we are unaware that practices such as shamanism can alter our consciousness and enable us to perceive the spiritual world and even ask for guidance from good spirits. Most ancient societies were able to gain knowledge and healing powers from the spiritual world because they practiced shamanism. However, the modern society has been brainwashed to believe such practices are a form of madness, and ghosts/spirits are hallucinations.
The society is unaware that some contemporary scientists and researchers support the possibility of the existence of spirits/ghosts. For instance, Marie D. Jones, a researcher, claims spirits might exist, for she wrote, ‘ghosts/spirits may be the result of the synching of particles and matter between various levels of existence creating a literal means for moving between dimensions of reality.’ Moreover, she also thought that ‘ghosts might be a form of trapped energy between parallel dimensions or universes.’ Does this explanation of ghosts sound similar to the ancient idea that some ghosts/spirits are dead people trapped in the physical world?
Ghosts/spirits, or whatever you call them, exist, and it’s true they can guide us when necessary. The modern society will realize this if only it becomes open-minded and constantly conscious of the fact that the physical world came from the spiritual realm.
The society must strive to comprehend the spiritual world because it might be the secret to attaining higher wisdom and knowledge that can allow us to live in higher dimensions where there is only pure joy and love. We have to regain our lost connection to the spiritual realm.

Why Our Prayers Are Ineffective
Recently, I discovered that most people’s prayers are ineffective. I thus meditated on prayer, studied what many great thinkers wrote about prayer, and discovered the reasons why our prayers are ineffective.
Firstly, I realized that our prayers are ineffective because our minds are never silent. Many spiritual teachers believe the Creator usually talks to us after we pray, but we never hear the message because we are always thinking about our problems, the future, the past, and so on. We can only hear the Creator’s message regarding our prayers when we silence our minds. For as Rumi said, ‘the quieter you become, the more you are able to hear.’
Secondly, it dawned on me that our prayers are ineffective because our emotions and thoughts seldom align with what we pray for. For instance, we sometimes think deeply about our inability to become prosperous after praying for prosperity. Or, we sometimes continue worrying about the future despite praying to God to bless it.
The thoughts and emotions we embrace after prayer matter because we often attract what we deeply think and feel. Therefore, it’s difficult for our prayers to be answered if our thoughts and feelings align with what we don’t want.
Thirdly, our prayers are ineffective because we make decisions and take actions that don’t align with what we’ve prayed for. For instance, after praying for riches, most of us embrace laziness and make decisions that lead to poverty. As well, we avoid taking risks, and we fear taking the path that leads to riches despite fasting and praying hard for riches.
Fourthly, our prayers are ineffective because we are never alert for answers. After praying for something, most of us either forget about the prayer or focus on why the prayer is not getting answered. From my research on prayer, I learned that spiritual masters are usually alert for answers after praying. They constantly analyze their experiences since they believe they’ll find the answers to their prayers in their experiences.
In conclusion, although I believe action is bigger than prayer, I also believe prayers are effective because the Creator is a conscious being that can hear and answer our prayers. Moreover, the fact that many ancient cultures believed in prayer – despite living far away from each other – makes me believe that prayer works. Therefore, I think most of our prayers are ineffective because we haven’t mastered the art of prayer.
Anyway, I believe these are not the only reasons for ineffective prayers. You are thus free to provide more reasons in the comment box below.
