I recently read this story about a man who asked a shaman if he could watch him as he performed a rain dance. The shaman invited him to a field where the dance would take place. He watched as the shaman walked into a circle of stones and stood in the center with his eyes closed. After several minutes went by, the shaman walked out of the circle. The man was surprised that there was no "dancing", no colorful costumes, rituals or chants. He said to the shaman, "I thought you were going to pray for rain." The Shaman responded, "not pray for rain, but PRAY RAIN." The difference, he explained, is that in praying rain you connect with the feeling of the rain as it falls on your skin, you breathe in the smell of rain, you hear the sound of it as it hits the earth and the taste it on your tongue. In other words, you connect with the feeling of already having it.
Based on this idea many are now keeping a "Pray Rain Journal."The idea is to write down what you are praying for as if you already have it. Capture what it would feel like, smell like, look like, and sound like if you were to have your prayer answered. According to the law of attraction, when you connect with the feeling of having your prayers answered you actually raise the vibration and start attracting the answers to your prayers.
