Thank you all for the Jan 25th prayer!

MAJOR L♥VE to you all!

This month's prayer was incredible. We're pretty sure you could all feel the love, because we sure did! Hopefully it was just as peaceful and healing for the thousands of you who joined in this amazing global event. Don't forget that you can share your experience with others in the new Major Love Prayer Forum.

It is a wondrous thing how people from all nations, faiths and backgrounds are coming together to make a change like this. We're not all Michael Jackson fans, but we are all people who believe we can make a difference, as he so wanted to do. And the change can happen when we are determined and know in our hearts that we will succeed. We will, because we're bringing love back into the world. At the core of each of our beings is love. We must only remember this truth so it can shine from within, uniting us and creating a world without fear. When love isn't given prominence, compassion and empathy are lacking. These two qualities are necessary to stop the cycles of greed, hunger and violence that destroy lives and the life of our planet. No matter who you are, no matter where you live, no matter how young or old, rich or poor, love is the deepest desire at the core of your being... both receiving it and giving. And what a world we will create when we all learn to give!

As Michael Jackson said in 'This Is It', we must "remind the world that love is important." And that is our quest: to heal the world with L.O.V.E. We hope to see you back here for the next Major Love Prayer on February 25th as we work together on making the dream a reality! Please keep spreading the word and mark the twenty-fifth on your calendars :)

Sadly, this date also marked 7 months now without a sweet light we wanted beside us always. We miss you so much, Michael, but know you are still with us in spirit. And we thank you for your music, for the joy, for your work healing the world and its children, for your love, for your laughter, for your smiles, for your courage against all opposition, for the conviction to just be yourself, for sharing your life with us and inspiring us to become better people. We love you, Michael. From the bottom of our hearts. As you would so often say to us... more. Or most. And that's forever.

Welcome to the January 25th Major Love Prayer

We can change the world! If we all pray at the same time tonight ♥

Greetings and L.O.V.E. to everyone! Today will be the fifth Michael Jackson-inspired Major Love Prayer event! Many of you have joined in this before, but for others it will be your first time. It's truly a wonderful experience to feel that all around the globe, from Beijing to Bogota to Bucharest, thousands of others just like you are taking some minutes out of their day to combine energies in a massive worldwide effort to send love and healing! When we join together as one, there's nothing we can't do. We can bring the light, we can spread the message of love, we can create our peaceful HIStory -- for everyone and in honor of Michael Jackson (who sadly passed seven months ago today. God bless you, Michael. We all love you so much.)

Before beginning the prayer today, please consider the following:

1) It is truly best to begin a few minutes early if possible
, just to relax and center your mind so you'll be ready to go. During the time just before the main prayer begins we are already quite connected and the energy is very intense! We're sure you'll feel it! This is the perfect time to say personal prayers, such as prayers for Michael and his family, and for asking him and/or others (angels, religious figures, whomever) to join and/or protect us during our group prayer.

2) At the top of the hour we send out a Major Love to the world!
(See instructions /time in your location). This is not a massive wave of love to Michael, but with Michael! His dream was for his fans to take the lead, to heal the world. "We have to bring love back into the world, remind the world that love is important." Visualize growing the love, connecting to each other and letting it spread far and wide to the whole planet; all the world's children, our forests, oceans, air, the hearts of humanity. The whole Earth shall be filled with kindness, peace and healing.

3) Including HAITI
- Haiti is part of this world, so naturally they are receiving our love as well! However, it would be wonderful if we could please take a moment to send an extra wave of love and healing to the people of Haiti. They are still in great need because of the earthquake and aftershocks and so many children have lost their parents. They need comfort, hope and for all medical and humanitarian aid to reach them right away!

Thanks again to all of you wonderful people! We are the Army of L.O.V.E. and together we are changing consciousness, infusing it with love and healing the world for the future . You're all amazing and Michael would be proud of us coming together as one :)

To talk about the prayer, come visit us in the MajorLovePrayer Forum!

Thank you for the inspiring video, Qbee. We wanted to share it, for the L.O.V.E. :)

Thank you soooo much, all of you who've been spreading the word and trying to bring everyone together for this monthly prayer event and for the prayers for Haiti. Please remember to mark the 25th on your 2010 calendars, because these last few months are just the beginning. The world needs us, not just in crises but on a continuing basis. We are the ones who are bringing the light that will heal the world. We are the ones who can make that change by spreading love through our energy and action. Michael Jackson sang, "There's nothing that can't be done if we raise our voice as one!" Let's prove it; to each other, to the world and for Michael. We are that voice, we are the one, we are the Army of L.O.V.E. Let us lead the way!

Study: 'Heal the World' Lyrics Make a Difference

Can just hearing music about global love be a first step to changing the world?

A new study by the University of Sussex in England has shown that listening to music with positive ("pro-social") lyrics can actually affect how likely we are to help others. Experiments involving groups of students demonstrated that those who'd listened to positive music were consistently more likely to act positively when researchers 'accidentally' knocked over a container of pencils:
"On average, those who had heard songs such as Michael Jackson's Heal the World responded more quickly and picked up almost five times as many pencils as those in the other [neutral lyrics] group."
The study was published two months ago in Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin. You can read press articles referring to it at the links below. (Thank you, Michael, for your wonderful music! You continue to change the world in a million different ways. And we'll keep spreading the L♥VE!)

Vejledning til månedlig bøn [dansk oversættelse]

Major Love Prayer/Meditation - www.majorloveprayer.org

HVEM: Michael Jackson Fans rundt om i verdenen og andre, som ønsker at helbrede jorden sammen med os. Alle er velkomne!

HVAD: Major Love Prayer er inspireret af Michael Jacksons ønske om at helbrede verdenen og er en månedlig tilbagevendende begivenhed; der foregår på samme tid jorden rundt, i alverdens lande. Vi forbindes spirituelt i kort tid for at sprede en positiv energi af kærlighed, fred og helbredelse til alle. Som Michael Jackson synger i sangen ”Another Part of Me” ”We’re sending out a major love” (”Vi sender en stor kærlighed”)

HVORNÅR: Den 25. i hver måned præcis kl. 14.00 Los Angeles tid. Du kan gå ind på www.majorloveprayer.org for at se nedtællings-uret til bønnen og finde den rigtige tid i dit land. (Det er bedst at være klar ca. fem minutter før bønnen begynder).

HVOR: Hvorsomhelst!! Du kan deltage ligegyldigt hvor du er. Det ideelle sted er et, hvor du kan slappe af og være uforstyrret i ca. femten minutter.

HVORDAN: Denne bøn/meditation/bekræftelse involverer deltagere verden over, så de foreslåede instruktioner herunder er ikke religions-specifikke eller kendetegnende for en given åndelig praksis. Du må gerne tilpasse detaljerne i overensstemmelse med din egen overbevisning og egne ønsker.

Forberedelse (5 minutter eller mere før bønnen, hvis det er muligt)
  • Sæt dig i en behagelig stilling og slap af . Træk vejret dybt og roligt. Lad al stress fortage sig. Du kan vælge at lytte til afslappende eller inspirerende musik (såsom Heal The World, We are the World o.s.v.), fremsig en speciel bøn eller et mantra, bed for Michael, hans familie eller andre, tænd et stearinlys o.s.v. Tænk så på hvad vores fælles hensigt er - at sprede kærlighed, fred og helbredelse verden over
Bønnen begynder
  • Luk øjnene og fokusér på KÆRLIGHED; på følelsen af at give og modtage kærlighed. Føl kærlighed for dig selv, for din familie, for dine venner, for Michael, for jorden, for Gud/Universet/Skaberen (alt efter din egen tro) og så fremdeles. Føl denne kærlighed i dit hjerte.
  • Forestil dig de tusinder af andre verden rundt, som gør det samme på nøjagtigt samme tid.
  • Lad denne følelse af kærlighed udvide sig med glæde og forbinde sig til alle de andre, der tager del i dette (måske endda inklusiv Michael, hvis du kan tro på det!). Du er nu en del af et kæmpe net af verdensomspændende kærlighed.
  • Denne kærlighed spreder sig nu ud over hele kloden. Forestil dig, at den fortsætter med at sprede sig og blidt favner Jorden, går gennem alt levende, helbreder dyrene, skovene, luften, havene, menneskene, alt. Vi føler fred. Vi er helbredte. Vi er kærlighed. Vi er ét!
  • Bliv i følelsen i et par minutter, så længe du finder det behageligt. Du kan fortsætte dette i nogle minutter, hvis du ønsker. Inden du åbner øjnene igen, så husk at takke alle for denne helbredende indsats. Med hjernen og hjertet sig ”Tak” til de andre fans og deltagere, til Gud/Universet/Skaberen og til Michael for den kærlighed og inspiration, der har bragt os sammen i dag. Ønsk det bedste for alle. Åbn nu dine øjne, træk vejret dybt og vær bevidst om at du er i sikkerhed og hviler i dig selv. Du er stærk, rask og elsket.
Tusind tak og vi ses igen d. 25. i næste måned!

2010 is for L.O.V.E.

Happy New Year to everyone!

"We have to bring love back into the world. Remind the world that love is important." (- MJ)

So let's do our best to make 2010 the year of a massive new worldwide movement, an energy wave through humanity dedicated to spreading LOVE across the planet, in harmony and balance, with peace for us all. Let's keep it going until one day it's so automatic that no one has to think about it anymore.... until we live the love... until we are the love.

And in 2010 let us all continue to uphold and defend Michael Jackson's legacy, to speak the truth and fight lies in the media until the rest of the public finally understands who he is/was. We don't only honor and love him for his amazing talents, but for the amazing person he has always been; the biggest star in the world, yet through it all remained fun and childlike, caring and loving, a humanitarian, always wanting us to open our eyes and see that we are the world, that we can make a change, that it's up to us to heal the world. So in 2010, let us all "be God's glow". We love you, Michael. Now and forever.
