For the Love of Spirit

Purpose:  To fuel the fire of love that I have for Spirit.  To experience the presence of Presence.

Realization:  Spirit is all there is.  One essence, One substance, many forms yet undivided, Spirit is all.  This divine essence of this great All is Love.  Perfect Love, passionate Love, creative Love, unconditional and undivided Love.  Spirit is the Presence that brings life and love to all that is.

Unification:  I am the essence of Love, created by the One for Its divine mission of expressing and experiencing Its own perfect Love.  I am Spirit in one of Its many forms.  Spirit abides within me, always as the perfect eternal Love that It is.  The Presence of Spirit is here as me.

Recognition: I recognize Spirit as my creator and the Lover of my soul. As I remember and recognize this divine truth, my heart expands and I feel the Presence of Love that lives within me.  I embrace this Love and know that I am embraced by It.  Perfect Love, passionate Love, creative and unconditional Love are mine because Spirit has given Itself to me.  Spirit has withheld nothing from me.  All that Spirit is, Spirit gives.  The Presence of Spirit makes Itself know to me.  I open the eyes of my soul and look for this divine unseen and find It alive, always present within me.  My heart expands, my love expands, I experience the divine Love of Spirit in me, through me and as me.

Thanksgiving:  The realization of this great Love fills my heart with gratitude, and I rest in this divine embrace as I......

Release:  release my word into the loving, Self-giving creative action of the perfect Law of Love.  Amen

Affirmative Prayer for Deep Connection to Spirit

Breathing in, I know that there is only one Life, one Presence, one Mind flowing in and through everything.  Breathing out, I know this presence is the source of all that is – all love, all light, all wisdom, all compassion, all creativity, all peace, all joy.  It has no beginning and no end; It is eternal, limitless and everywhere present.  It is the Infinite Intelligence that gives rise to all creation, and all creation is made of, from and by this Divine Presence.

My very breath is the Presence within me, flowing in and through my body, permeating and connecting each cell, organ and system, and flowing out into the atmosphere, connecting me to the world of my experience.   As I wrap myself in this knowing, I breathe in the love, I breathe out the love.  I breathe in the peace, I breathe out the peace.  I breathe in the joy, creativity and abundance.  I breathe it out, and know that there is no separation at any point nor at any time.  There is only oneness and I am a part of it!

I remember and declare that Infinite Love, Infinite Well Being and Infinite Abundance are my true nature, my true experience, the only reality.  I accept, in complete certainty, the truth of God: there is only love, wholeness and perfection.  I allow any mistaken thought of lack, limitation or dis-ease to melt away as shadows melt away in the bright light of day.  The bright light of Truth is that I am a spark of the Divine and a beautiful, unique expression of the love, well being and abundance of Its divinity.  I allow my experience to reflect perfect happiness, perfect abundance, perfect well-being.  Everything good is brought into my experience.

With a heart full of gratitude and love, I give thanks for this truth and for my ever-growing awareness of its out-picturing in my life. 

I release my Word into the law of the Universe and let God do God’s work.  And so it is.

Prayer for Grief and Loss

Prayer for Grief and Loss

Spirit is love everlasting.  Spirit is peace abiding always.  Spirit is the source of love and keeps giving all the time.  There is no beginning and there is no end to the magnificent power of Spirit.  In all places, seen and unseen, in all situations, happy or sad, in every moment of every day, Spirit is always there.  This never ending life of Spirit continues even after the walk on this earthly plane.  Even after the last breath of life as we know it, life continues.  Life continues to love and be loved. 
I am one with that Spiritual essence which is the source of my love and peace.  As I align myself closer and closer to that essence, I am clear in the knowledge that I can find peace.  I can feel that spiritual alignment within me bringing me closer to love and closer to peace. Everything I am is given by the always generous, loving hands of Spirit.  Spirit is in each breath I take and each step I take.  I am one with Spirit each moment of each day.
I claim that I move a step closer to peace with each breath.  As I remember Spirit’s love is a part of me, I remember that whatever passes away from my life is also held in loving embrace by Spirit.  I claim that I become steady and sure with the knowing that Spirit’s love guides me every step of the way. I claim that I am able to access all of Spirit’s love within me as I move through this time of grief and pain.  I declare right now a calm acceptance of what is and a new resolve continue to love and be grateful for all parts of my life.
I am so grateful to align with this truth and knowledge that Spirit is always with me.  I am grateful to stop and remember this truth through this time of prayer. And I am grateful as I open to this love and peace that is the essence of who I am.
I release my word into the law of mind where it is acted upon and made so.  And so it is.

Affirmative Prayer for a Peaceful Neighborhood

 Affirmative Prayer for a Peaceful Neighborhood

There is a Divine Presence in, through, and around all people and circumstances.  

It is fully present now, expressing as each one of us, and in the evolution of our neighborhood.

This prayer then affirms our alignment with the peace and harmony we know to be our neighborhood.  The special spirit and character of our neighborhood is a relaxed setting where families can grow and see their dreams come true.  Elders can remain in their homes to enjoy the peace of their back yards.  Streets in our community remain quiet and traffic free.    The spirit of our neighborhood is strong, resilient, and dedicated to preserving its beauty.  We are its guardians.  And as such, we grow closer as a community, learning and persevering through it all.

Grateful that this Divine Power is at work on our behalf, the work has already been done.  So we relax now knowing all is well.

Affirmative Prayer for Freedom from Unhealthy Habits

Affirmative Prayer for Freedom from Unhealthy Habits

Recognition: there is one vital creative power in the universe. It is filled with life giving energy. It lovingly shares this energy with its creation. There is nothing in life that does not receive this loving attention.

Unification: there is nothing outside of this divine creativity. All and all alike receive the bounty of creation. I know that my entire life is a miracle. As I know that is true for me, I know it is true for all. And so I remember this right now for everyone.

Realization: and so I accept for everyone reading this prayer despite whatever appearances are in life right now, that all is well. On the unseen and the seen side of life, all is well. Tiny miracles are happening everywhere. I accept that as we remain in each present moment that the miracles are visible, tangible and palpable. And so on behalf of everyone I remain centered calm with my attention focused only the present moment. I accept that the divine intelligence co creates with each one vitality, health and highest and greatest good.

Thanksgiving: and so there is nothing left to do but rest. I rest in great gratitude for getting to remember the way it works.

Release: and so I simply surrender this spiritual mind treatment to the movement and activity of the law which is already transforming energy on its behalf. And I just let it be. And so it is.

Affirmative Prayer for Love in All Relationships

Love in All Relationships

God is everywhere, always, alive and active in everything at all times.  There is no ground which is not holy ground, no place that is not sacred and no person that is more of God than another.  This Presence that I call God is beauty indescribable, wisdom unfathomable, strength indestructible and love unconditional.  This is the substance and essence of life, omnipresent.  God is everlasting Love.

This holy Presence is the substance and essence of my life.  I am sacred and holy.  I am alive with the breath of God, my heart beats by the wisdom and power of  God's life which is Love.  My life, all life, is God's life, is Love in form.

I do not sleep walk through my days.  I am awake and aware of the presence of God in each moment.  I look for God in the most ordinary of things.  I see the holy mystery of Gods life in everything, all people, all circumstance and condition.  Perfection reveals Itself to me as I look; I find Love in all I see.

I honor my husband, my family, my friends, all life and I know that to the degree I honor them, I honor God.  I release judgments and expectations of others and allow them to be just as they are.  I respect and recognize the presence of Love in all people in all things.

I do not struggle against my circumstance nor do I strive for recognition.  I simply remember to love.

I am filled with joy as I abandon myself into this great Love and with my heart brimming with gratitude for this recognition.....

I release my word into the Law, the action of this great Love. 

...and so it is.

Swift Handling of Financial Affairs

Swift Handling of Financial Affairs

The One Mind is a source of abundant good and unlimited resources, lacking nothing and knowing the fullness of good at all times.

This One Infinite Divine Mind, which includes and encompasses all of creation, shares Its nature with all beings, everywhere. I call this one God. All are one with the One/God. All share in the qualities and characteristics of the One/God. All share in the unlimited resources of the One/God. No one is left out.

As one of God’s own, each of us is guided by Divine Intelligence to reap the benefits of divine abundance, opening to peaceful, easy and swift handling of all financial affairs. I claim for each of us the peace of the Divine in all financial dealings, as we embrace the truth of abundance and peace, which is our birthright.

I am grateful for knowing this truth, for being open to it for myself and for all others, and for trusting in the Divine Intelligence of the One to guide each of us there.

I release this creative thought to the dependable process of spiritual law, knowing that it is true, it is accepted, it is done, and all is well.
