Honoring the Earth

Honoring the Earth

There is one power that is undefeatable, eternal and infinite. It is the power I call Spirit, it is the power of love.  All of the cosmos is the essence of this one power, one unified life, one great Spirit, one love that is manifest in all.  The earth, the sun, the moon and the stars are all glorious reflections of the heart and mind of Spirit. This self-sustaining Spirit communes with Itself through all life.  The wisdom, beauty, joy and love of this great unseen One is living as all that is and loving all that is. 

Spirit lives within me, observing It's own great creation through me.  Spirit celebrates and honors It's own life in and as me, we are one.  I am unified with all that is.  I am created from the very elements of the earth, the good and glorious earth and I are one in Spirit and one in element.

I honor the earth and all it contains, I respect and guard all life.  I accept my responsibility to choose to guard the bountiful resources of the earth.  I treasure water, air, soil and all life forms and do not squander them.  I recognize that I am nourished by Spirit through the gifts of the earth and filled with all the good that I was born to receive.  The earth shares her ancient knowledge and spiritual wisdom with me through her beauty and her bounty. I treasure these gifts and return them with good stewardship and love.  I am mindful of my part in preserving, respecting and honoring all the resources of Mother Nature and take responsibility for my role in protecting this bounty.  I do what I can with peace in my heart.  I know that Love is creative and I choose to love all life, even unconscious life, with equanimity.  I trust in a world that works for everyone and everyone that works for the world.  I know the work I am called to is simply and profoundly to love.

My heart is filled with peace, and my mind and heart with joy and hope, as I speak the beauty of this Truth into the Law of creation, the Law of love knowing that it is so.  And so it is.

Affirmative Prayer for Fulfilling Work

Purpose:  to be doing creative, fulfilling work as all my financial needs are met

Recognition:  There is One Life.  That Life is God’s Life, the Creative Energy and Intelligence out of which arises all that is.  It is everywhere present, in, around, through and as everything.  It is a field of Love and Light, emanating Joy, Wisdom, Harmony, Wholeness and Abundance.  There is nothing outside of God, the One eternal, infinite, changeless Allness.

Unification:  This One Life is my life, now and forever.  I am an inseparable part of the Creative Intelligence I call God.  I am never outside of God, nor is God ever outside of me.  It lives as me, It shines through me, It expresses joy, wisdom and abundance within me.  I am one with the Love, the Light and the Wholeness.

Realization:  I accept an ever-increasing experience of creativity flowing through me in service to Life.  I am engaged in creative, fulfilling work that is spiritually, emotionally and financially satisfying.  I love what I do and find it fun, easy and rewarding.  Because all is God, all that I do stems from and merges into the Divine Mind, resulting in greater joy, wisdom, abundance and wholeness.  I allow Life to express fully through me and know that as I listen for and trust my inner wisdom, that voice of Spirit inside me, all my needs are met beyond my wildest imaginings.

Thanksgiving:  With a happy heart, I give thanks for this shift in consciousness of my place in God.  I welcome with gratitude the demonstration of God’s Love in my work and in my financial affairs.

Release:  I release my Word to the Law of the One Mind, knowing that It can only say ‘yes.’  I let it be so and so it is.

Affirmative Prayer for Financial Abundance

 Affirmative Prayer for Financial Abundance

Recognition:  God is the one Infinite Intelligence operating in the Universe, out of which everything else arises.  There is nowhere and no thing that God is not.  God is love, God is wholeness, God is beauty, creativity, peace and abundance.  God is the Divine Source that created and sustains Life, showing Itself in the beauty of a rainbow, the innovation of a new idea, the love in a baby’s smile, the industry and cooperation of a beehive, the profusion of color in a meadow.  God is that ineffable Presence that gives unique life to each form and thought, even as the compilation forms a grand unity. 

Unification:  God is the Power and Presence within me, giving me life, forever embracing me in love and light.  I am in the midst of God and God is in the midst of me.  God is my source and my supply.  All that is, all that I have, all that I do is God expressing Its evolutionary desire through and as me. 

Realization:  As I open my heart and mind to greater awareness of my “godness,” my life expands and blossoms like a flower opening in the warmth of Spring’s loving sunrays.  I experience more love, more happiness, more creativity, more success.  Because I know there is never a shortage of God, I know there is always more of every good thing.  Abundance is spelled G-O-D and my cup is overflowing.  My bank accounts are full, my debts nonexistent, I have money to share and money to spare.  I am a member in good standing of the Divine Givers and Receivers Club!

Thanksgiving:  With a heart full of light, I give thanks for this knowing.  I give thanks for the shift in consciousness that demonstrates as financial abundance.  I give thanks for the love and support I feel all around that makes way for my truth to unfold as my reality.

Release:  In gratitude, I release my word to the Law of the One Mind, that Law that knows only ‘yes,’ that Law that receives my thought and acts upon it without hesitation.  It is done and I accept it.  And so it is.

Affirmative Prayer for Parents and Families with Special Children

For Parents and Families with Special Children

With deep gratitude I recognize the One, Father-Mother-God, the womb of all creation. This one loving Presence sustains, lifts up, weaves all into Its sacred Wholeness. This One Heart, this Divine Pulse of love knows Itself in, around and through All, eternally giving itself to Creation. It moves the invisible into and out of form, It transforms, creating anew in each moment. This powerful movement of Consciousness celebrates all awakening to Itself, everywhere present.  It gathers all into Its embrace, cherishing, leaving nothing out.

This is what I am made of. I am an instrument of the Divine, a vessel of Divine Substance, created on purpose, a child of God. As this is true for me this is true for every parent and every child, reflecting Mother-Father-God’s devotion and love for Creation, embodying the Divine Relationship. Each is a vessel and instrument of the One, with invisible yet palpable tendrils of love and compassion weaving all aspects of this Universe into Its Wholeness.  There is no place where one part of this Whole ends and the next aspect begins. All beingness unfolds seamlessly, is whole, perfect and complete within the heart and consciousness of the Beloved.

From this awareness I speak my word for and about all parents and children, recognizing those dear ones that come through us with special needs and gifts. I honor the Sacred within these relationships, hearts breaking open to a greater experience of love and compassion, while navigating unexpected and uncharted paths. There is a growing trust and confidence in the wisdom of the heart.
I welcome a surrender and release of any unhelpful, thought, idea or belief. I remember that we are all here on purpose, by Divine appointment, unfolding in perfect right relationship.   I accept a greater experience of ease, calm, and even humor, when others offer unsought, and possibly uninformed parental advice and  judgments.  

I claim for these families a deepening experience  of being at Home in the Beloved in the midst of all condition, situation and circumstance, being lifted up by that which sustains even when the cup appears empty. Compassion is given and received. Parents are more forgiving and kinder to themselves.  I accept a growing demonstration of support and guidance for parents and families of special children. For these special parents I claim a willingness to receive self-care, respite, joy and laughter---allowing it to express more fully in the daily fabric of life.  I declare an opening for like-minded parents and families to meet and support one another, allow themselves to rest, play and share from the heart, lifting each other up. 

I am grateful for knowing this Truth. With absolute trust in the power of prayer, it is known and done.   And so it is.

Affirmative Prayer for Financial Stability

Affirmative Prayer for Financial Stability

There is one unifying Life Force, one Creative Power that lives at the heart of all of Life. It is abundant, It is generous. It is the great Giver of Life. This Life Force is infinite in Its reach and eternal in Its nature. It reaches into every life, giving Its gifts fully to all.

I am a part of this one Life and this Life Force, this Creative Power is present fully in my life. I am one with the abundance and generosity of Life Itself.

I accept for myself complete financial stability. I enter into the awareness that the one Life Force, the one Creative Power is fully active in me and is acting though me. I open to accept the gift of 
abundance that is given so freely and so generously to me by that which has created me. I cooperate with the natural laws of the universe as I train my mind to see the good in everything and everyone. When I am conscious of this good, I become naturally wealthy. The riches of life are mine to claim. I take action where action is needed, and I rest in the faith that my life is unfolding perfectly. The abundance of the Universe is mine to enjoy.

I celebrate this truth about my life, accepting financial stability as my new normal.

I release this Word into the Creative Medium that returns the most positive results.

And So It Is

Affirmative Prayer for Relationships

Purpose:  To comprehend that my relationships are my contact with God in flesh.

Recognition:  All life is an out-picturing of the love, beauty, power, grace, peace and infinite intelligence of the One Life.  This One is present in everything, experiencing Itself as everything.  It is the essence of love and the substance of It's own being, all being.  Every relationship is the One in relationship with Itself.  It is the great I Am, the great All, the great We.

Unification:  This One Life is my life, I am We.  At the center of my self is the great and only Self.  I know this One as me.  I know It also as All.  I am held within the eternal We.

Realization: Every relationship I have is a relationship with the holy One.  I know and experience this One in every relationship.  I realize that to see holiness is to experience holiness.  I release any judgment or condemnation I have of any human being.  I know that each and every human is God in flesh and blood.  My relationships, all of them, are my opportunities to bow before God.  Everything I give returns to me.  I choose to give love, I choose to serve God in the flesh and blood of my relationships.  I release any need for appreciation or recognition from others because I trust that God is present, always, everywhere, in everything.

Gratitude and Release:  This knowledge fills my heart with gratitude and my mind with peace as I release my word of truth into that great Law of infinite Yes, of infinite Love.

And so it is.

Ever-present Good

Ever-present Good

All there is, right here and now is this One loving Presence, enveloping everything in Its Divine Embrace. It lifts up, as the root and foundation of all beingness. It is both the armor, and the alchemy that dissolves it.  It is  that which brings the invisible into form,  the movement of consciousness, Infinite Potential pouring Itself into every vessel. It is the Source of all,  the breath and heartbeat of everything seen or unseen, known or unknown. It expresses as the joy, vitality and rhythm of Life; the whole, perfect and complete fitting together, the breath and heartbeat of all that is.

It vibrates through me, resounds as me in every aspect of my beingness, because I am inextricably created from this God Stuff, an individual expression of It, showing up as a unique package with Divine gifts and tendencies, inseparable from the Divine, here on purpose. I have no edges, I am immersed in this Life, Love and Presence of  the One.

From this place of wholeness I accept an awareness that Mother-Father-God is always acting on my behalf, never absent, with me in all things.  I release whatever is unhelpful or contrary to my good. I surrender as the Divine perfectly removes  what is not useful.  I accept Spirit’s support and  guidance, I open to a deeper experience of the Divine’s unbounded Good.  I trust my heart-body connection, as it directs me to what makes me most happy. I embody the idea that the Universe is completely for me, and marvel at the daily demonstrations. Divine coincidence and synchronicity abound! I more easily see beyond appearances, remembering situation, condition and circumstance are temporal. The Truth, everpresent beneath the surface, behind the veil, is being called forward passionately, irresistibly from that deep knowing within me. I release my attachment to outcome; I trust in this unlimited  Good, in the perfect  unfolding of Infinite Potential.

I am abundantly blessed and grateful for this knowing of Spiritual Truth.  I rest in the Goodness of God.  

I release my word into the heart and mind of the One, where it is already known and done.  And so it is.  Amen.
