Receiving

Receiving

There is this One circulation of Love.......the Source, Spirit, Creator and Sustainer of all. It enfolds everything in Its Beingness, there is nothing outside of It, the Lover and the Beloved, eternally giving to Itself.

I am made of this Stuff, a beautiful expression of It. This Divine Substance resonates through and as me. It beats my heart, breathes my breath, and circulates in and around me. I am a beloved instrument, a vessel for and of this Goodness and Creative Power, inseparable from It.

I open to an ever growing experience of the Divine flowing into me and expressing through me. It moves and fulfills me in the midst of Life, throughout all situation, condition or circumstance; It is my Truth, the bedrock of my existence. I open to and receive that unlimited Goodness which is simultaneously at the center of my being, as well as beyond and beneath the surface of all experience; That constant loving and powerful Presence knows the Highest Good for me, and I joyfully welcome It!

I gratefully lean into this knowing, accepting its perfect fulfillment of this prayer. I am assured that is already acted upon in the Heart and Mind of God.

I simply let go and let God.

And so it is!

A Prayer to Honor Animals in the Spirit of St Francis of Assisi

A Prayer to Honor Animals in the Spirit of St Francis of Assisi

O Divine Master, Creator of all Creatures of the earth, omnipresent in each and every animal and plant. Within each cell of every living thing.

Lord, make me an instrument of your peace. So I am one with the Lord, unified together by Love. Spirit is in me, around me and through me. Just as Spirit is one with each and every animal on this planet. Just as Spirit is one with each and every plant of every type and variety.

Love, pardon, faith, hope, light and joy are present in all of life. I welcome the ability to console others over being consoled. I claim understanding of others. I declare a love for all including all animals and plants.

I celebrate this truth.

It is in dying that we are born to eternal life. With this I surrender this Word unto the law of the universe.

And So It Is

Affirmative Prayer for Ease and Comfort During a Medical Procedure

Affirmative Prayer for Ease and Comfort During a Medical Procedure.

Recognition: There is one life living itself. One song singing in harmony with itself. One energy vibrating. One source creating. Imaginings of separation are false. All things are connected in this one flow of life that is reality.

Unification: The one life is my life. I am the singer of the song. This one energy vibrates my body. I am a unique creation by this one source. I am always connected to and living as the one in the flow of life.

Realization: I know I have the power to create my reality. My mind is a creative force that represents my thinking and belief. Today I choose to believe and trust that my procedure will go easily and effortlessly. I trust in my body's ability to remain calm and comfortable. I trust in my doctors abilities to do the procedure with ease. I release any thought that I need to figure out how this procedure will be performed in a way that will provide comfort and ease. I trust that I am always taken care of by the universe.

Thanksgiving: I am so grateful to know the truth about myself, my procedure, and my care providers. I am filled with a sense of relief and relaxation. I celebrate this new recognition and feelings of comfort and ease.

Release: I release this word into the law knowing that it responds in the form of my highest good. I am turning it over to the universe. I trust that it is handled and done. I accept reality as it most wonderfully is.

Affirmative Prayer for Self-confidence and Inner Guidance

For Self-confidence and Inner Guidance

There is one Transcendent Power over all Creation and that is God. God- the Creator and Animator of all universes and all beings. This mighty God’s essence is unconditional Love and ultimate Goodness-manifesting as perfection in all positive qualities: Perfect Wisdom, Perfect Power, Perfect Intelligence, Perfect Joy, Wholeness, Harmony and Peace.

As one of God’s incredibly abundant creations, I inherently possess the potential of all the Divine Qualities. This Loving Essence powerfully manifests as me and flows through me without restriction, as I relax into the Presence and allow this Presence to be known by every fiber of my being. Since God is Creator of all, all beings embody this essence as well, these truths of me are truths of all.

I accept that my intention for self-confidence and inner guidance opens my heart. I allow God’s Love, perfect Intelligence and Wisdom to manifest and flow throughout every cell of my body and mind. Sensing this flow, I allow perfect trust and confidence in myself to emerge. God’s unconditional love manifests and informs my every decision, word and action. I am confident and I trust in God’s inner, loving guidance. I confidently and easily express as God within.

I rejoice in this heightened awareness of the perfection that I am.

Knowing and realizing this Truth, that Law has already acted upon, I release my word into that Law with loving and total trust.

And So It Is

I Know Who I Am

I KNOW WHO I AM

There is only One thing happening. It is Life. It is God.  The endless heavens above, the countless galaxies swirling, and all the space between is made of God. God is the beauty, the joy, the harmony, the eternal peace, and the powerful yet quiet voice of Nature in and throughout all things.  God is this divine experience called Life, which is happening in every moment.  There is no beginning and no ending. Without a center or circumference, this very moment is Life in action. Spirit is always re-creating itself fully and perfectly in every moment which is evident by the blossoming abundance of life in all its diversity.

As God is that which makes up everything, I am of God. I am part of Life. Life is in me and works through me.  My life is an expression of the one Spirit common to all.  The gift of Universal Life has created me, and is creating through me.  The inherent beauty, harmony, and peace of Life are bound within me. These qualities are in me and always will be. There is no time in God.  As God has no beginning and no ending, neither do I.  What is true for God must be true for me, for I am made
of Spirit. My very nature is born of peace, harmony, and abundance. These qualities are my nature and God lives its life through my thoughts and actions.

I was born in this time, in this place, and into this body by a God that I feel in my heart when in communion with Spirit. I let go of my story. I surrender to that still small voice within.  I let go of future worries. I let go of past regrets. I am present in this miraculous moment, and I know who I am, a child of God. I am a vital part of Life, a life that was given to me without prejudice. It is mine for the living.  I am awake and express peace, harmony, love and abundance, for all of these qualities and more are who I am. I am peaceful. I am harmonious. I am love. I am light emanating from the One.  I am made from God and I radiate with the cosmic brilliance of a billion stars.

I am so blessed. I am so grateful. My heart, soul, and mind overflows with the presence of this moment, so much so that I don’t know what to make of it, and this is wonderful! I rest in gratitude with a profound sense of wonder. I experience Life in me, through me, and around me. I accept this Life just as it is, and just as it is not.

I release my word into the Law of Spirit knowing that my word is already manifest in this moment.

Affirmative Prayer for One Experiencing Dementia and Their Care Giver

Affirmative Prayer for One Experiencing Dementia and Their Care Giver
There is One, only One.  The Source from where all things come forth into manifestation, both visible and invisible, both tangible and intangible.  This One, the Living Spirit Almighty, Maker of All that is made and without which nothing that is would be.  This One creates only Perfection.  And this Perfection was and is and will be always Perfect.  This Supreme Being is the Giver of Immortal Existence.  


Within this One, I have Life Eternal.  I live and move and have my being in the Mind and Body of this One.  Through me flows the Love and Law, freely with ease and order. Through me flows Clarity of thoughts and emotions.  There are no obstacles, no obstructions blocking the flow of Truth. I am one with Divine Mind.  What is true for me is true for all beings, all essences.   And so naturally, my Mother is one with the Divine Mind.


As I enter into my greater expansion of Perfect Peace, I claim and accept that the experience of confusion and chaos during dementia is a temporary and false condition. The Divine Consciousness is more than the physical organ called brain.  Immediately upon transitioning into the next Life phase, the consciousness is clear and vibrant.  All doubt and confusion transition into the nothingness that it is and always was and forever will be.  Now clear and vibrant thinking and feeling are Revealed.  The Truth of God, the Living Spirit Almighty is all there is.  Peace, Harmony, and Tranquility reign.  The individual soul continues on its journey, forever and ever expanding.  I receive the Divine Gift of Clarity and Peace for my Mother now.


What a blessing for this knowing of my Creator’s Desires.  Reverently, I give many thanks.


I release these words into the atmosphere that knows only Good and always says Yes.  It is done.  It is complete.  It is perfect.


And so It is.

Peace and Forgiveness

Peace and Forgiveness

There is one breath, one heart, one source of all being. It is that irrepressible force of love, creating from Itself, moving the invisible into form, sustaining, dissolving and creating anew in each moment. It is infinite potential and goodness, everywhere present, seen and unseen, known and unknown, inclusive of all there is. It has many names: Mother, Father, God, Spirit.

However I name It, I am made of this divine substance, a child of God, inseparable from this goodness, a place where God shows up. It is my very breath and heartbeat, It flows through, around and as me, there is no place I end and the rest of God begins. It is the source of that which expresses through me, the purpose of my being. I am inseparable from this everywhere present Good.

From this oneness I choose to remember the divine nature of who I am, my connection to all life. I claim a deeper awareness of the harmony and balance inherent in my being, reflected in how my body systems work together for the good of the whole. I allow this to inform my inner life, those activities and spiritual practices that support balance, harmony and peace within myself. I let go of limiting thoughts, judgments, wounds, and fears that I may more fully experience my natural peaceful state of being. I make friends with the supreme court that resides in my head. I am kinder to myself when I am challenged and frustrated. I practice Peace and Forgiveness instead of war when dealing with my inner chatter. This better equips me to sow seeds of peace and harmony in all my interactions in the world. My internal and external responses grow more understanding, compassionate and helpful. I listen more completely for the meaning beneath the words. I let go of wanting to “fix”, more confident in the process of what is wanting to be known. I allow this attitude of Peace to more fully embody who I am.

With gratitude I celebrate knowing this Spiritual Truth, this shift in consciousness for and about myself.

I release my word into the One, the Power of Now that has already acted on it. I let go and let God.

And so it is.
