Giving Thanks

There is only one life. That life is God's life. That life is perfect. It is in through and as all. The creator, divine substance and sustainer of this thing called life. It is the very breath and word of this prayer.

It is the sum of my being. I am brought into existence through God's will, I am sustained by it, always at home in Its boundless love. I am inseparable from this substance of my being, from this unlimited good.

From this awareness I speak a prayer of appreciation and gratitude for myself and all of life, for what has been, what is now and what will be. I recognize a deepening trust in how life shows up and in ways that it does not. I accept the comfort and guidance of infinite intelligence and boundless love that always act on my behalf, for my highest and greatest good. I more easily listen to my intuition, the God in me that knows.I give thanks as I grow through life's situations, conditions and circumstance. Compassion and forgiveness inform my words and actions. Kindness is my nature. Strength and support express through me.

I am blessed and grateful to realize this spiritual truth.

I let go and let God, confident this prayer is already known and done in the heart and mind of the One. And so it is.

Affirmative Prayer for Peace in the Neighborhood

Peace in the Neighborhood
Peace is the very heart of God. It is the field upon which all life is created through the power of Divine Love. Peace is the harmonious nature of the action of Life. It exists in the deep stillness of the timeless presence of the One Mind. This peace is perfect, complete and infinite. Joy flows out of this perfect peace.

The peace that is at the heart of God lives in me and in my neighborhood. The power of Divine Love is always expressing its harmony through the action of my life, and the activity of my neighborhood. This peace is always present and cannot be disturbed or disrupted.

I therefor accept a greater experience of peace, a greater manifestation of joy. I declare that anything unlike peace dissolves and a pure and perfect peace rises up. I affirm that my neighborhood is filled with joy, harmony and well-being. All that needs to be restored is restored through the creative action of the One Mind.

I am grateful for this new found awareness of the existence of Peace in me and my neighborhood.

I let it be as it is so,
And So It Is

Affirmative Prayer for the Center for Spiritual Living, Santa Rosa

Know with me that there is only one creative Power active in creation: the Living Spirit Almighty. This One is in and through all that is. It is the First Cause of all that is seen and all that is unseen. It is forever creating from itself, and I am part of its creative process.

Through my freedom, creativity, choice, and vision, I contribute to the direction that creation flows. As a steward of the Center for Spiritual Living, Santa Rosa, I open my consciousness to the flow of the One Creative Principle through me. Its infinite wisdom guides me. Its dynamic love inspires me.

I remember that the work of our Center, which is an idea born in the mind of the Creative One, has already touched the lives of thousands of people and that the teaching, support, and ministries ripple out into the world, changing more and more lives for the good. I accept for our Center and its community a new wave of enthusiasm, engagement, and growth. I know that the Center is right now attracting the right people to join with the vision of our community and that a new light is being held up like a lamp to guide our way. This spiritual mind treatment functions like a magnetic field that draws us to each other, the established community with those who are already seeking a spiritual home. The consciousness that I am treating with is the same consciousness they are thinking into, wondering what is next for them.

I trust my heart’s direction when it comes to supporting, growing, and deepening our Center. I trust my intuitive connection to the Divine when deciding what is next to be done. I trust my vision to lead me with every step. I trust the Creative Process that is even now flowing through these words into form.

Having set forth this idea into Divine Mind in the form of this heart-felt treatment, I know it is time to release it and to accept the result as if it were already established. I rejoice in what I have done in mind, and I rejoice in what is to come as a result.

And so it is.

Affirmative Prayer for Love and Goodness

God is Love, It is the self-givingness of Spirit, the desire of Life to express Itself as creation. Love is a cosmic irresistible force. Love, as God, is everywhere present; Its nature is irrepressible, unbreakable, tender and robust.

And so love shows up as me. It is in and through and as every aspect of my being. I am inseparable from it, I am here on purpose through the will of God's love. I am a vessel and instrument of this force, it is my source and sustenance. There is no place I end and the rest of love begins. I am connected to all that is,  enfolded in the one life as a drop of water in the ocean of love.

From this understanding I speak my word for and about myself and all of life. I affirm the love  and goodness which is the substance of my being. I am willing and grateful to recognize my infinite connection to all of life. I open to a growing sense of peace and comfort as I lean into and rest in this awareness. In moments where I forget or temporarily lose my way--- I am kind and forgiving with myself; I reach out for support and deepen my daily spiritual practice. I surrender any thought, idea or belief in lack, limitation, separation or fear. I turn inward and breathe into the Truth of my being which is rooted in me and unchangeable. I welcome the uncaused joy of life to well up in me and support my growing gratitude.

With appreciation and awe I celebrate and accept the spiritual truth of my being. I let go and let God, confident that this is already known and done in the heart and mind of the One.

And so it is.

Compassion and Kindness

Opening to this reverence for light, and heart felt giving where only one thing is happening and it is all God. It is that infinite flame of love and compassion everywhere present growing in the heart of all creation. It is the power and intelligence that informs and guides the whole, perfect and complete nature of life, the seen and the unseen. All is enfolded within and a part of this Divine One, Mother-Father God.

And so I am made of this one divine substance, connected to all that is, always within and as It, brought into being by and as a part of this one loving consciousness. It is in and as every seen and unseen aspect of my life, my very breath and heartbeat. I am at home in God, a child of God.

From this awareness I speak my word for and about myself and all beings, creatures, and life. I allow and welcome compassion and divine intelligence to inform and guide me as I move through this season of love and light and giving. I trust my intuition to guide me. I lean into my daily prayer and spiritual practice. I expand my gratitude and meditation. I seamlessly ask for prayer. I do all this that I may be filled up and better able to give. I am kind, generous and forgiving with myself and others. I remember that many experience acute emotional and financial challenges during this time and gauge my responses and actions accordingly. The gifts of kindness and compassion infuse my interactions.

I am so blessed and grateful for the gift of spiritual practice and prayer.

I celebrate this Spiritual Truth and shift in consciousness. This prayer is known and already done in the heart and mind of the One.

And so it is.

Affirmative Prayer for a Forgiving Heart

There is one living Spirit that is the source of absolute unconditional love. This love is ever present and eternal. The nature of the Spirit is forgiveness, wholeness and healing.

As this Spirit is present in all of life, this Spirit is present in me as forgiveness, love, wholeness and healing.

Therefore, I accept that love is present in all my relationships: past, present and future. I declare if there is anything in me that needs to be released it is right now letting go and I enter into my natural state of forgiveness. Wholeness and healing are right now being restored in my life. I forgive myself, I forgive life, I forgive others. I am renewed by the Spirit and I accept a life filled with freedom and open-heartedness. My heart is filled with forgiveness.

I give thanks for this realization and I accept it as done.

And So It Is
