The Rainbow Personality

  • The “praying personality” is made up of many dimensions or aspects. Body, heart, mind (memory, reason, imagination), will and spirit. The process of prayer is a way of uncovering these layers and discerning how they work together and how they work against one another.
  • In the process of this exploration, we may feel that we are being stripped down to nothing, but we become empty so that we can be filled. We are cleansed so that we can become more healthy. We are hollowed out so that we can become ourselves. We learn the relative value of our various energies so that we can gather them and align them Godward and act with all we are. When we do this, we are more than the sum of our parts. Our integrity gives us, not only authenticity but also authority.
