Affirmative Prayer for a Balanced Life

 Affirmative Prayer for a Balanced Life by Tamarya Hulme

Spirit is all there is and is everywhere around us. Beauty abounds through Spirit in the sound that the waves make as they crash on the beach or the rush of the wind through the tops of the trees and through the smells of Pine in the Forest. Nature presents the gifts of Spirit without hesitation. Like a cocoon unfurling its wings or a bee pollinating a flower, Spirit moves through everything sharing its divine intelligence. Spirit is all there is.

The interconnectedness of Spirit and Nature unites me with this glorious web of life. I go forth with Spirit sharing with an open heart as I am a part of the same sacred source of divine expression. I, too, am part of all that is perfect, whole and complete in nature with the same timeless wisdom of all that is. I, too, am a powerful dreamer adding my essence to the whole. We are one.

I claim this truth of living in an abundant universe that also offers balance. I experience a deep sense of knowing the Universal Laws are working giving form to security and balance, and fun and delight, in my life. Self-care comes easily and daily spiritual practice supports my good. Spirit acts through me with creative expression and there is time and encouragement for both play and hard work. There is much love and laughter. I remember to think with my heart and watch what unfolds trusting that it is as it should be. I love my life.

I am grateful for all that is right here, right now, for me. Appreciation and joy reside in my heart for my new awakening. I only need to reach into my heart to grab the deep sense of gratitude that shelters there. I gladly give thanks.

I release my Word into the Law of Cause and Effect. I accept and believe this good coming into manifestation. 

And so it is. Amen

Affirmative Prayer for The Neighborhood

Affirmative Prayer for The Neighborhood by Jennifer Mann

The harmonious, orderly nature of the Living Spirit is everywhere. The entire Universe is progressive, seasonal, changing—yet orderly. It is evidenced in the glory of the shedding, then blooming trees and rotation of the earth around the sun. The seasons are predictable yet surprising when one stays in the awe and wonder of each present moment. I am aware of tiny miracles all around me at any given moment.

Just as I know these miracles for myself, I know that all and all-alike are continuously gifted with new and miraculous phenomena of nature. I call that the definition of harmony.

So it is with this remembering that I offer a prayer of thanksgiving
for my neighborhood. I accept that all families awaken to the wonders
of Divine connection and share in the joy of peaceful relationships,
caring hearts and sacred service to one another. Whether in mere
thoughtful regard within each mind or in concrete acts of kindness
toward one another, my neighborhood is a peaceful and loving place. I
claim that the harmony of nature resides within each of us who share
our community.

Gratitude enhances my experience immediately and powerfully. I expand and open to the peace it brings.

From this gratitude, I then release this prayer to the activity of the
Law where it transforms energy on behalf of all of us for the highest
and greatest good.
And so it is

Comfort in Times of Grief

Comfort in Times of Grief

Right next to the aching in my heart is the warmth of Divine Love. This warmth, this light is the all-powerful Creator, the Constant Companion.

It is personal to me, available to me.

I turn my attention to this warmth of Divine Love and I bask in Its light. I remember that there is no where else to be except here where I am. I allow the feelings and emotions in their myriad of expressions to flow through me, neither denying them or dwelling in them. I instead allow them to wash me clean-to clarify my mind and ease my heart.  Divine Love is bringing me home to a greater and greater realization of wholeness and I am so grateful.

I completely surrender in willingness and trust to the wisdom of the Divine at work in my life.

Affirmative Prayer for Food and Shelter

Affirmative Prayer for Food and Shelter by Jennifer Mann

The abundance of the Universe is boundless. God’s grace is unlimited and given to all. Just like the sun cannot shine on just one or two beings in a crowd, God cannot and does not exclude anyone from Its love.

I remember that my entire life is a miracle. Everyone in it and all circumstances and conditions are somehow perfect because they have all brought me to today. As I know that for myself, I know it for all
beings everywhere. Life is a miracle!

From this remembering, I declare that the human spirit is generous and caring. Our nature is to reach out and give in loving service. To that end, I accept that there is also a time for receiving so that all givers can be fulfilled. As each of us practices conscious receiving and saying yes to the Divine Givers of love and life, then our generosity also increases. In a nano-flash, then all people and animals are served and uplifted. No one walks hungry or cold. It is a manifest miracle of consciousness and awareness. I hold it in mind as it spreads by the very word of this prayer.

As I surrender the prayer to make an impression upon the mold I have formerly called this Life, I know that this new expansion creates space for more and more light and love for all. I keep it in my heart
and simply let it be done.

And so it is
