Come Together: April 26 to June 25 ~ Silence Every Gun on June 25


~April 26 to June 25, 2012 ~
Suggested Visualization to silence every gun for one minute on June 25th in honor of Michael Jackson:

This visualization is meant for daily focus. It is also how we will begin the May 25th and June 25th Major Love Prayer! For more information, partners and a topic focus schedule, please see the article Come Together Over Michael Jackson.

You may wish to bring a sacred feeling to your practice by lighting a candle or burning sage or a favorite incense to purify your meditation space and enhance your quiet mood. It is strictly a matter of personal preference. Sitting in a comfortable chair, take several deep, cleansing breaths, inflating your diaphragm first and then your lungs and filling your inner space with the white or golden light of love. Allowing your mind to be cleared of all thought, expel any negative emotion with your exhalations, emptying your lungs first and then your diaphragm.  You may wish to ask your angels and guides to be present and to guide your spiritual practice.

When you are breathing comfortably, sanctify your inner space by repeating a favorite prayer, mantra or inspirational quote. One of my (Jan's) favorite prayers … and one that we have used with great success in the past … is St. Francis Prayer:
Lord, make me an instrument of your peace
Where there is hatred, let me sow love
Where there is injury, pardon
Where there is doubt, faith
Where there is despair, hope
Where there is darkness, light
Where there is sadness, joy
O, Divine Master, grant that I may seek
Not so much to be consoled as to console
To be understood as to understand
To be loved as to love
For it is in giving that we receive
It is in pardoning that we are pardoned
And it is in dying that we are born unto Eternal Life. Amen.

When your mind is quiet and your breathing feels natural and comfortable, visualize the last few moments of Michael’s performance of Earth Song from any of the many stages upon which he performed it.


See the tank roaring onto the stage as he stands with his arms flung wide in front of it in defiance.

See the soldier opening the hatch of the tank and jumping from its treads to point his rifle at the innocent bystanders occupying the stage with Michael.

See him turn and point his rifle directly at Michael and the pained, haunted look on Michael’s face.

Watch as Michael slowly raises his right hand to touch the barrel of the rifle with his fingertips and point the rifle towards the stage.

Watch as Michael plants his feet firmly at the front of the stage, turns his arms so that his palms are facing up and motions with his arms from the center of his chest out over us, his audience, in a silent plea for us to do likewise. Pour all the love your heart can hold into the intention of silencing all the guns on Planet Earth for one minute on June 25, 2012. Know that Michael joins his prayers and intentions to ours and that all of God’s universe joins us in our visualization to create peace.

Repeat this visualization, if you wish, to anchor it firmly in your awareness. On the repetition, you may want to add your intention that on June 25, 2012 all the guns on Planet Earth are silent for one full minute. Feel the joy of that minute of silence and extend that joy and peace outward to blanket the planet. Feel our great love for our beautiful, blue planet and all her inhabitants.  

On the day of Major Love Prayer (the 25th), know that you are joined by thousands of others in every corner of the world. Feel their presence. Feel the love we all share … for each other … for our planet … for our beautiful Earth Angel. Focus that love like a laser beam upon our planet. Visualize joining hands all across the world to blanket the planet in our love.

If the last few moments of Earth Song are uncomfortable for you, substitute the few moments from the short film for Heal The World when the soldiers throw all their guns into a pile on the street. This visual speaks to the same concept just as strongly.

You may wish to add prayers for friends or loved ones experiencing health or personal problems.

Finish your visualization practice with a prayer of thanksgiving for your intention being made manifest in this physical reality. Thank Michael for being near and joining his intention with ours as we heal this violation of our common human spirit. Thank him for bringing us all to Come Together Over Michael Jackson.

Thanks to Jan from WithAChildsHeart'sBlog for this beautiful visualization. For more information on this intention project, please see Come Together Over Michael Jackson here on MLP, or visit the "Come Together Over Michael Jackson" Facebook eventThank you and much love!

So beautiful was this video. And to think he was doing it while in pain (Munich). Please pray for all animals that are victims of violence, as well. Posting especially in memory of Max the Rottweiler, killed, June 30, 2013 by gun. How many others are killed and maimed through fighting, war, domestic violence, carelessness, human error, and other factors, I am sure no one could even keep track of. Just pray, as it is the only way to an answer. In memory of Max, and in honor of Michael and his peaceful ways and love of animals, children, all people, and the world. Prayer for peace and healing for the world. (posted, July 2013).
