Love and Peace in Every Heart

The creative spiritual substance of the universe is love. Love is forever invigorating, renewing, revitalizing, and it is pure substance. It exists throughout all creation. Love is the sole impulse and the greatest incentive. It is everywhere present as the impelling force in all life.

As we are created from this love and filled with it, we merge with the All That Is. There is nothing outside this immeasurable love. The natural byproduct of love is peace. As we love, peace merely comes to us.

So as world and national and local events arise, and we humans forget that love is all there is, I speak word on behalf of all of us in this moment. I claim and accept that as we awaken and remember the love, peace returns in each heart and mind. As each of us utilizes our spiritual tool of remembering, it affects all life. So in this moment I accept for each of us a willingness to be willing for brand new beginnings by virtue of our spiritual intention. I claim and accept that each of us is a powerful vessel of love which produces the peace that is so necessary for the world right now.

I celebrate the joy this practice brings as we each participate in unison. It is with gratitude that I release this spiritual mind treatment to the law which manifests it as our experience. I let it be done, easily, and so it is.

Peace in Our Time

Peace In Our Time

There is one creative cause of all life, one powerful flow of peace-commanding Spirit. Infinite Creator, the only Presence and the only Power. God is total peace, heartfelt love, absolute calm, breathtaking beauty and unending joy.

I have a consciousness of Oneness. All that God is, I am. I live and move and have my being in the flow of peace, wisdom, clarity, wholeness and joy of Spirit. My life is rich with meaning, and I reside in an inner glow of peace and well-being. As I feel complete peace in mind, heart and soul, a feeling of well being fills my world. Peaceful is my way of life. And of course, as this is true of me, it is true of all humans, indeed of all beings everywhere. My thoughts, actions and words of peace express my God nature, the truth of who I am. As I focus my inward thoughts of peace in my life, my family, my community, the Universe become more peaceful.

I welcome and celebrate peace in our world, in all creation, in the Universe. No matter what is being said in world news, I realize and claim there is calm, wisdom, compassion, kindness, and light flowing to and through our world leaders from the one source of Divine Intelligence, Spirit itself. 

This rich, gentle, and endless stream of the peace that is the Divine fills my heart to overflowing, and I am truly grateful.  I am full of grateful appreciation as these gifts of peace show up and unfold in our world leaders, people of all nations, and on our planet  at this time.

I release this Truth into the Omnipresent Law of Mind, knowing that it is done according to my word.
 And So It Is

Prayer for Peace

There is a Power for Good. There is a Power of Good. Its nature is Peace, Light, Life, and Love. It knows only Its own Reality of Good, Peace, Light, Life, and Love. It is eternal and infinite. 

This Thing of Good has taken form as me. This Infinite and Eternal Peace is my true nature. This Essence of Light guides my intelligence. This Energy of Life courses through every aspect of my being. This One Who is Love Itself expresses as me.

And of course, as this is true of me, it is true of all humans, indeed of all beings everywhere. We are expressions of the One Good, Peace, Light, Life and Love. It lives Its eternal Life in us, around us, through us, and as us.

So I welcome a revealing of this Good as I encounter world news. I embrace and amplify Peace as I express human kindness, caring, and compassion. I open my spiritual eyes to witness the Light of Divine Intelligence unfolding through our global leaders. I affirm and support the power and invincibility of Life as I dwell in the faith that all is well. I remember that truly Love is the only Power -- the ONLY Power. And as these mental realizations grow and expand in my consciousness, so they indeed become real -- become realized -- in my experience of myself, and my experience of those near and far, including those with political power. This Good must show up in my experience, expressing as life-affirming peace, rational intelligence, loving thoughts, words and actions, and well-being for all.

With joyful anticipation, I give thanks for the way that these things show up in my world, on our planet, at this time.

With nothing more to add, I release this Word to that which knows how to make it so. 

And so It is. Ashe'. Blessed be. Amen. Ho.

Spiritual Practice

Prayer to keep up my spiritual practice

God is all there is. It is above, below, within, without. Behind all of life, it is the source of wisdom and power, love and peace. God is everywhere present, always available and  always right at hand.

I am one with God. This powerful presence of God within me is closer than my breath.  It is that creative force within me that lights up my path and shows me the way. The wisdom and love that God is, is right here within me. It is who I am and is a part of my very being. I have an abundance of wisdom, love, joy and peace always available to me.

From this place of unification, I declare that I open to my highest good guiding me toward a wonderful day to day spiritual practice. I allow God to move me in the direction of self-care and self-love to continue meditation, study and prayer. With that power of God within me, I claim that with each day I take the time for spiritual practice to sustain my spiritual good. I reach deep within to the steady place of love to guide me through my practice as it becomes something I want to do every day. What joy and gratitude I feel knowing that as I trust God, my way is made clear.

I am so grateful for this time to pray about sustaining my practice. I know gratitude powers me on and gives me strength to continue.

And with grace, I can let this go. I can release this prayer into the law which makes it so. 

And so it is. Amen.

Prayer for Healthy Finances

Prayer for Healthy Finances

There is only one source and sustainer of all that is. Its nature is boundless . It is the Divine Being always acting on behalf of its creation. It is the activity of infinite love and intelligence, everywhere present in this moment and always.

I am made of this divine stuff. Boundless love and intelligence is the nature of my being. I have no edges.  I am inseparable from this Infinite Source. I live and have my being within it.  It acts through me and for me. I am a recipient of and conduit for this source of goodness. I am an activity of  infinite supply.

From this awareness I speak my word for and about myself.  I surrender any unhelpful thought or  belief in lack, limitation, separation or fear. In this spaciousness I claim the boundless good that is continuously put before me. I notice and honor the abundant nature of life. I rest in knowing that life is always for me. I trust that I am guided in ways that allow infinite sustenance to unfold through my innate gifts and meaningful work. I welcome healthy finances. This good shows up in known and unknown ways. I am an open and ready instrument for this divine activity, confident the Divine is acting for my highest and greatest good. I accept life just as it is and just as it is not.

Thank you life. I am grateful for this shift in awareness.

I let go and let God, assured this is already known and done in the mind of the Infinite One.

And so it is.
