Forgiveness


There is a Power and Presence in the Universe that is a Force for Good. It is the Unconditional Essence of Pure Awareness, Pure Consciousness, the Ground of Being. Everywhere present, It is the Source and Substance from which all Life arises. It is in and through all things as Its Self. It is all-loving and ever-forgiving, creating all of Life and accepting all of Life back into Itself unconditionally. All that It creates is Good.
It is everywhere and I know that It is in me. It has formulated all the atoms and cells in my body and holds them together in Divine Right Order. All that I am is One with this Ground of Being. Not only is It in all of me but it is in all of the world.
Knowing this, I speak my word for and about this world. I accept deep understanding and forgiveness in the hearts of all people. This understanding allows forgiveness to flow naturally as an accepted norm for all people and in all cultures. I claim the letting go of all resentment, guilt, blame and victimhood. I claim that the hearts and minds of the world's people are washed in the healing balm of forgiveness—self-forgiveness and forgiveness of others. I claim this freedom for humankind now. I claim the establishment of forgiveness as a power that is so well integrated in the hearts of all the people, that it is the norm. I accept this freedom and this Grace now manifest on earth in the people.
In gratitude for this, I surrender this prayer, and the power and intention of it, to the Divine Law for this good and so much more.
And so it is.

Unity and Connection


There is only One Source of all there is: One life, God’s life. God is the Divine, Infinite, indwelling Power and Presence. It is the allness of every thought, deed, action, event, and circumstance. It is the unconditionally loving essence of the universe expressing Itself in and through all of creation—in everything, every one, and every place.
This One is all of my being. I am inseparably one with It. My very existence is an expression of It. Every part of me is the fullness of the nature of God. Life Itself is breathing me into existence in every moment. With every breath I take, I am breathing in the Allness. As this is true for me, this is true for each of us. We are each unified with the One Source and each other as It lives, moves, and has Its being in and through us. We each walk in the Reality that there has always been and forever will be only one thing happening—Love itself.
As we plant this idea of unity and oneness in Mind, it takes form as love, peace, and joy in our feeling of connection to all that is. The recognition that God is expressing as each unique individual transcends all appearances of difference or separation. It is within this expanse of thought that I know for us a deeper awareness of our unity and connection to the human family, to the planet that sustains us, and to all of life. The rivers are my life blood. The earth is my sustenance. My love of the whole human community is stronger than the strongest heartbeat. I know for us a moment of grace through which our most profound and personal prayer for peace and well-being on the planet finds its way into a very real demonstration of peace, unity, and plenty. We are forever and ever expanding in our sense of unity with Love itself. We are never alone. We are empowered beyond all imagination by our connection with and experience of the Divine within ourselves, each other, and everything.
For all of this, I am grateful. I celebrate the radiant expression of God as connection to all that is.
It is with certainty and joyful anticipation that I now release this prayer into the loving activity of Divine Law which is already responding affirmatively. I accept it as done.
And so it is.

We see a world where kinship with all life prospers

We see a world where kinship with all life prospers


There is only One Life, that Life is God's Life, and that Life is perfect. It is all-encompassing, eternal, and expansive, filling all time and space with Its endless variety. It is the thread that connects and runs through all that is, and It is all that is. It is the unconditional love and the organizing power that informs and binds all together in harmonious perfection. It is the source and the substance, creator and created, and the fertile soil in which all that is, grows and prospers.
This One Life is my life now. This is the truth of my being, and the truth of each person reading this prayer. Each is an integral part of the whole -- the one heart, one life -- for all eternity. Each exists as a perfect expression of this one perfect Life, connected to all in eternal unity. Each is known, understood, and accepted as part of the whole, part of the magnificence of this all-knowing, all-loving Life.
I accept, right now, the perfect experiences to affirm each person’s kinship with all that is, and with each other. I welcome the perfect situations, resources, and environments that nurture the awareness of each person's connection with all of life and the willingness to act on this awareness in ways that affirm the Oneness in which all life finds expression. I claim for all an easy release of any misconceptions, any confusion or doubt about the sanctity or value of Life, and an influx of the perfect experiences that affirm the connection of each to the whole. I welcome a resurgence of joy as this truth reveals each one's part in this miraculous and majestic life where all are intertwined, and all are held in perfect love.
I'm grateful for this truth, grateful for the infinite ways this Perfect Life finds expression and prospers in the Oneness, and grateful for the activity of Spirit that manifests uniquely through all.
With a thankful heart I release this prayer, my Word, into the Law, that Doer and Organizing Power that moves this prayer from thought and intention into form and experience. Knowing it is done in the perfect time and way, I let it be.
And so it is.

Forgiveness


There is only one God, one infinite Presence. It is eternal and Omnipresent, all of the time. This divine Presence is the breath and blood of Life. It is all that is known and also the mystery yet to be known. This Presence is the giver and sustainer of all creation. It is the stillness, peace, truth, and acceptance which are at the back of all life, life issues and the ebb and flow of right action.

I am connected to this Presence that infills all life. I am an individualized expression of this divine Peace. Spirit’s circulation of Good, expressed as this profound Peace, flows through me and as me. The clarity and intelligence that is the Divine is present in me and acts through me. Spirit’s nature is my nature. Spirit’s intelligence and peace are expressed in and as my mind and heart.
I claim for myself the joy and ability to express even greater love by allowing forgiveness in my life, and the recognition that doing so creates an opening for more goodness and divine circulation. I accept a knowing of myself for who I really am: the embodiment of the Divine right now. I declare that I do not fix, I do not judge. I love and witness and breathe. I accept for myself that I am flexible and compassionate with the people in my life and those I read about in the news. I am able to be supportive and allow their actions, beliefs, and emotions to be what they are, knowing that others are also an ever-evolving part of God. I am calm and patient and loving. I meditate as an activity to create ease and peace. I forgive myself and others for any judgment I may have around the activity of anyone else. I offer forgiveness as a means for us all to open our hearts and forgive ourselves. This loving activity helps create a world that works for everyone.
I celebrate this treatment. In calm confidence and abiding faith, I rest in deep appreciation. With love in my heart of knowing that truth demonstrated, I rejoice.
I speak this word as the Word of Spirit and release it to the Law. The Law always responds in the affirmative. I believe this truth and accept its manifestation.
And so it is.

Affirmative Prayer to Recognize My Unique Gifts

Affirmative Prayer to Recognize My Unique Gifts 

There is one Mind, the Perfect Intelligence, the one pure Light of Being. This One is all knowing and ever present. It is the Creative Presence that gives itself to all of life.

I am one with this divine Mind. The divine Mind is my mind and it is absolutely clear. It is the same intelligence that guides the planets on their path and it is guiding me on my path.

I am open to this guidance. I am clear about my unique gifts. I am a creative presence in this world. I give of myself in ways that nourish life. I remember that I am enough. I am worthy. I am unique and I am essential just as I am. I participate in life through the inner yearning of my heart. The way is made clear before me.

I give thanks for this revelation and realization of my true spiritual nature.

I let it be as it is already true and done.

And So It Is

Connected to All Life

Connected to All Life

Connected to all life, remembering that Divine Love flows eternally, witnessing this earth’s evolution up to this moment, I rest in this prayer connected to all there is.  My breath reminds me that I breathe with all life on this planet.  We are all interconnected by this divine thread of life’s intelligence living itself. 
In tragedy and sad hearted times, I hold tight with the tools of our faith which affirms that good will overshadow any hate.  Love is stimulated now into action by the conditions of the world, thus this prayer is a word for healing at our deepest level of humanity.  I affirm that it starts with me as I look into the corners of my heart and weed out any ideas of separation, hate, or prejudice.   I replace negativity with gratitude for life living itself as us in this important time in history.  I claim that healing starts in me as I allow feelings of hurt, sadness, disappointment, anger, fear, worry to flow in and more quickly flow out, as I give them safe passage through my thought atmosphere.   This allows divine love to flow more freely through me.
Understanding that when we are feeling the weight of world’s conditions now, we can choose to turn toward the truth that love emerges stronger and more unified than ever before, and with it a sense of hope, and peace, and faith that all unfolds in God’s grace.
Gratefully, I rest in confidence that love shines brightly in my heart and this light lifts up all those in my thought atmosphere.  As I release this prayer, I bless the work that is already at work in our world.

Amen

The Transmission of Love for all Humanity


There is one spark of light from which all life emanates. This original Source is timeless, seamless, endless, and intelligent. It creates from love and then loves Its creation. Whatever name it is given does not matter. It is the Source and Supply of all.

Nothing is outside of It. It lives as each one of us. The entire tapestry of life is woven together by the Creator. It is complex, beautiful, diverse, and inclusive of all sentient beings. Each thread is unique and adds to the beauty and magnificence of the whole. Without any one segment of thread, this life would not be the same. All are uniquely important to the Divine design we call life.

It is from this remembering that I accept for all humans the knowing of Divine connection. In this knowing comes serenity and space for light and love to grow new awareness. I accept that each of us in our own way realizes the nature of creation as loving and nurturing. And that as this realization occurs, there is less and less questioning and defining, but merely the acceptance and transmission of love. I claim that the urge to serve and help effortlessly arises in the face of need, and that this arising is the norm. We are a global family and our prayers for one another are affecting the entire planet. I claim that news reports of circumstances, which appear as dire, are merely prayer requests for each of us to incorporate into our daily practice. The remembering of our world in our prayers lifts and transforms energy toward sweetness and serenity.

Lifted in gratitude for the opportunity to remember the way it works, I surrender. My faith is strengthened and I rest right where I am.

I release this spiritual mind treatment to the movement and activity of the Law where it is immediately manifest as experience.

I let it be, and so it is.
