To Keep My Heart Open

To Keep My Heart Open

There is one loving Spirit. The heart of all creation is the expression of this unconditional love.
The only power is the healing power of absolute love. Love that is given freely and fully to all of creation.

I am made up of and animated by this love. It is the very essence of my being. All of my life-my inner life and my outer life- is an expression of this cosmic love.

I accept that my heart remains open in the face of relationship challenges. I am kind-kind to the other person and kind to myself. I rise up to see the bigger picture. I release all blame and all assumptions. I release all unforgiveness and all expectations. I come to live more fully in the present moment and I bring forth the natural openness, the natural harmony that exists in every relationship. I am patient, I persevere. I am honest with myself regarding my part in any conflict. I am willing to change. I bring acceptance, attention and good will to all interactions. I allow the Divine to guide me in all my relations. I release all old patterns and step into a more full expression of openheartedness. I accept this good  as already present in me and in all my relationships. I know oneness is the absolute truth of all interactions.

I give thanks for this deeper realization of my open heart. 

I trust the Law to work on my behalf, creating the highest good.

And So It Is

Affirmative Prayer for Being Open to Good

Mother Father God, the Source of all beingness, always acting on behalf of all that is. This everywhere present vibration of Love creates anew in each moment. Nothing is outside of it, All is enfolded in Its Divine Embrace.

It naturally follows that I am made of this God Stuff, it is the Source of my existence. I am inseparable from this Infinite Love that abides within around and as me; I am an individual expression of It. I am abundantly sustained, comforted, lifted up and inspired through Its inherent presence. As a child of God there is no place I end and the rest of Life and Good begins.

From this awareness, in the midst of whatever is “up” for me, I claim an expansiveness that reaches out in reverence and joy at the center of however Life shows up. I open to this palpable creative Presence to carry and guide me through each moment. I slow down to savor the moment, and allow the Good that wants to come through me. I recognize a growing ease, compassion and understanding in Life’s situations, conditions and circumstances. I am guided to what is mine to do. I more easily release attachment to outcome, trusting in the Universe with Its Infinite Intelligence and Potential to unfold in creative life affirming ways---for the Highest Good in my life , loved ones, and in the lives of All that I pray for and about.

 I am so blessed and grateful in this knowing, remembering this Spiritual Truth for and about myself, all beings and every aspect of this One Life.

I rest in the Beloved’s Embrace, where my word, this prayer, is already known and done in the heart and mind of God. And so it is.

Affirmative Prayer for Healthy Eating

Healthy Eating

The abundance of nature and its life giving sustenance is unending. There is a harmony, intelligence and order to all of life. Generous and nourishing is the love of Spirit. Life creates form out of its impulsion to create and that which it creates is all-good.

I am one with this creative process, One with this flow of good, One with this abundance and harmony.

Because I am a natural outpouring of God's love in form, I naturally and easily am attracted to healthy eating. All of the colors, tastes and smells of healthy foods bring me into alignment with my own healthy expression. I celebrate the bounty of this earth by making wise choices. My commitment to health is a manifestation of my love for the Divine within me.

Thanks be to Life for this great healing realization that guides me to my greatest expression.

I trust it to come to fruition in my life.

And So It Is

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.
