Love and Forgiveness

Love and Forgiveness

The Love of God is unlimited, expansive and unconditional. It is present in all of creation, fully active everywhere, all the time.


This  Love, expansive and unlimited, inclusive and all-powerful, is present and available in me and through me.

I have full access to Love. I practice releasing all blocks to love. I practice forgiveness and my heart opens to a fuller, deeper experience of Love. Love of Spirit sustains me and lifts me up and I find my way moment to moment to live in Love. I breathe in Love, I am Love wherever I go. I wake up in love with life. My energy is restored by Love. Love brings me to joy.

I am grateful for this realization about my relationship with Love and how Love is in me and my life.

I release this Word of prayer in faith and trust.

And So It is.

Affirmative Prayer for Love, Forgiveness and Kindness


Embracing this present moment where God is everywhere present as the divine substance of all that is, the seen and the unseen, that which comes into being through the Divine. It is the length and breadth of all that is, the physical and invisible. God is the source and sustainer, boundless love and compassion, infinite intelligence, peace and balance.

This is what I am made of, lt is is the substance of all creation. It is the source of this prayer. I am inseparable from this irrepressible truth.

From this awareness I speak this prayer for and about myself and all life. I open to love, forgiveness and kindness. I lean into the strength of God as I align myself with words and actions that support and respect all life. I welcome and seek out life affirming connections amidst racial injustice and the continuing pandemic as light shines on all that needs healing in our world. I accept that God is 100 % available as the omnipotent, omniscient, and omnipresent creator of this one life. I am never alone. God abides within me. I am at home in God.

With a grateful heart I realize this spiritual truth. I let go and let God, confident it has already been acted upon by the Law.

And so it is.

Affirmative Prayer for the United States


There is only one perfect, whole, and complete Presence.  It is the seen and the unseen. It is the far and wide; It is the here and now. It is the conscious thoughts of the cosmos, the beating heart of the Earth, the invisible thread that runs through all of existence. A never-ending boundary of all this is known and unknown. It is baffling in size, and resource, and grace, and generosity. It is equally present in every moment, space, and time. It is all there is. It is The Thing Itself. The Original. The Source. Constant. Inclusive. Benevolent. It is Unconditional Love. It is Kinship. It is Peace. It is Rich and Lavish Goodness, and It is abundant in Its availability.

And in this perfect moment, with this very breath, I draw my consciousness into deeper awareness of this Goodness. This one Divine Presence, this Infinite Kinship. This ever available and present Joy, Love, Beauty. I know It dwells with me, within me, through me. I am an intentional and integral expression of the Whole. And as I know this is true for myself, I know this is true for every citizen, every immigrant, every alien, every adult, every woman, every child, every man, every veteran, every politician, every voter, every party supporter, every student, every clergy member, the rich, poor, young, old, he, she, they, us, them... EVERYONE of The United States of America. Period. Without hesitation, exception, or reservation. We are ALL intentional and integral expressions of the One… And this understanding, this knowing: It warms me, It consumes me. I can feel It in every fiber of my being. It saturates my mind and my thoughts. The same thoughts that form my words of Absolute Truth for my country right now.

The highest and best good for the United States is realized and present right now. We are empathy. We are love, concern, and conviction. We are unconditional peace, benevolence, and compassion. We are resourceful. We are creative. Each and every conversation, experience, and thought is an integral Divine Action. Our highest and best Good pours through us and into Life. Every moment. Every breath. Through our smiles. Through our helping hands. Through our differing perspectives. Through our conversations, our communication, through our trials and so called errors. We are perfect Divine Action without falter. Every single one of us. And as such our Country is a perfect, whole, and complete expression of our Divinity.

And knowing our Divine Perfection, I express awe for the magnificence of the One. I celebrate our true capacity, and the bountiful Goodness that lay before us right now. I revel with joy and splendor for our glorious Country. And I call it a Blessing for it is Good.

And as I exhale, I release these words into Divine Law, and the Law responds with a Sublime Yes. It is Good, and it is done. So It Is.

Affirmative Prayer for a Mother's Loving Heart

Resting in the loving consciousness of Mother-Father God, there is only One. It envelopes all of creation within its infinite intelligence, power and joy. All is created from and abides in this divine eternal womb, no thing is outside of it.

I am birthed and sustained by this everywhere present loving One, inseparable from my divine nature.  As this is true for me it is true for all of creation. There is no spot where God is not.

I speak my word for and about all beings, all life, Mother Nature, every molecule, atom and electron. I honor the care, kindness and devotion embodied by mothers and all who care for others in their homes, by going to their jobs, and in their work lives and communities. I accept a growing recognition of the essential nature and value of all beings, all life. I affirm hearts opening and growing during these unusual world circumstances. New and vital human connections are developing. Infinite possibilities, thoughts, ideas and belief in a world that works for everyone are irresistible, unfolding in seen and unseen ways. I celebrate the loving mothers' hearts that abide within us all.

I gratefully acknowledge this shift in consciousness.I am assured it is already known and done in the heart and mind of God.

And so it is. Amen

Affirmative Prayer for Renewal in Times of Crisis


A divine substance flows through all life.  This creative medium unfolds itself in infinite varieties of expression. It is a brilliant, beautiful, loving entity.  Its nature is seen in the determination of seeds growing in spring; the exquisite display of flowers in first bloom, there is an awe that quickens the heart becoming aware of this eternal power.

This creative intelligence flows through me now.  It automatically breathes my body which is the body of this spirit incarnate. And as that’s true for me, it’s true for each one of us; that the divine lives as us.  We are its senses experiencing this present moment in time.

This prayer sets the intention for our planet to evolve through crisis rapidly, returning to wholeness, health, balance; internal and external harmony quickly.  And I affirm my body and mind remain steadfast on the glory of the divine unfolding and blooming all around me.  I declare my family, community, country and world grow together as one family sharing resources and loving compassion.  Hearts are uplifted seeing our world healing as one; nurturing ourselves and others to the best of our abilities.

Grateful that this life unfolds perfectly, I thank the helpers and responders, and all of us that up-level the universal consciousness with our spiritual practices. 

Easily releasing this prayer to the universal laws, I rest in confidence that life renews itself over and over again infinitely revealing itself before me as beauty, love, health, harmony, compassion and ease.

And so it is. Amen.

Listening from the Heart

Breathing in this one life, where only one thing is happening. It is God, the Beloved, the Divine everywhere present, in through and as the one Consciousness, the substance of all being. It is the Body Mind and Spirit of all life.

And so it is the body mind and spirit of my being. There is no spot where God is not in around through and as me. This is true of all life, for all beings. I am inseparable from its boundless love, infinite intelligence and power. There is no place where I end and the rest of this Divine Life begins. It is everywhere present enfolding every atom, every grain of sand, every soul, every aspect of Its creation. All is within the loving presence of the Beloved.

With this understanding I speak this prayer for about myself and all beings. I relax into the care and embrace of God. I know that I am never alone, God abides within around and as me. I allow this awareness to inform, comfort and guide me in however life is showing up. I breathe into the strength, kindness and love of God when I am afraid or triggered. I slow down and become thoughtful. Then I respond in ways that promote unity rather than divisiveness, whether this is in social media, conversation or my thoughts. I first heal my thinking, nurturing my heart and mind connection. I listen to others with an open heart, I soften and hear beyond apparent anger and blame. I may choose to say nothing. I welcome the personal and spiritual growth opportunity. I open to constructive connections and dialogue, especially when I disagree. I sense values that we agree on. I actively support a world that works for everyone. I am a work in progress and so is everyone else. I forgive myself and others when we falter.

I accept this shift in consciousness. With a grateful heart I let go and let God, confident is is already known and done in the heart and mind of the Beloved.


And so it is. Amen

Affirmative Prayer for Acceptance

God is divine. God is the underlying reality for all there is and everything I see. God supplies all. God is always there.

I am connected to God. Spirit is in me. My thoughts are Spirits' thoughts. I am one with infinite Spirit which flows through me now in love and acceptance. God's desires and mine are the same.

Spirit welcomes my trust in the divine. I see clearly now the real me is also divine and ready  to accept my true calling. I accept this good that is mine right now. I am filled with peace and clarity in my mission. I fully realize the good I desire is already mine because of who I am, a Spiritual being.

I love the awareness of my exceptional talents and abilities. I am thankful for seeing who I really am and the wonderful part I play in the Universe. My heart feels gratitude for the lessons in life the divine provides me now.

I let go of all self-sabotage and negative thinking. I surrender to the divine. I trust that it is already done. I release my word to the action of the law, which is always listening and always responding to my Spiritual Mind Treatment. I place into Creative Law that my needs are met unconditionally. 

AND SO IT IS!
