I trust my feelings and emotions as part of my inner guidance.
If a situation or choice feels right to me, I know it is right for me.
We each have an inner guidance system that helps us navigate through life and toward our fullest potential. Our feelings tell us if we’re working with or against that guidance. Tension or ease, expansion or restriction, blocked or allowing, comfort or stress, relief or uncertainty….these are some of the feelings that tell us if we are working in harmony with our inner guidance or not. Our feelings tell us if someone we meet might be a positive influence in our lives, or if we should be cautious. Our feelings tell us when it’s safe to walk alone and when we should choose a different direction. Our feelings can even tell us which house to buy- “It just feels like home.” It’s always in our best interest to trust our inner guidance and our feelings- if a situation or choice feels uncomfortable it’s important not to override that feeling with reason and analysis. When we have to select between two options and don’t know which is best, our feelings are an excellent gauge. By using our imaginations we can test-drive our choices and see which one feels right. The better choice will produce the better feeling.

Every step I take is part of my sacred journey, without exception.
I honour my living as a sacred excursion.
Whether dancing dutifully with the ordinary or mindfully engaged in the esoteric, every single step that you take is part of your sacred journey. Our physical lives are the journey of a soul collecting experience and expanding. They are the journey of the Divine, masquerading in form, in search of Itself. They are the journey of a body, a heart, and mind, working with the Universe to create a blueprint of creation for the next generation, and the next, and the next. There is no step, however muddy or mundane, that diminishes the sacrosanctity of the entire journey. Revere and honour it all-every struggle, every triumph, every divine inspiration, and every swept floor-for these are the life experience souvenirs of your sacred journey.

Today I intend to see the world as a playground where I will let my inner child out to play.
The inner child is often only given his or her due consideration when an issue is being worked through or a trauma is being healed. Few have escaped childhood without some emotional wound- and while it’s valuable to reclaim and love that inner child into our healing- he or she can offer us something else, something equally valuable. That little boy or little girl who permanently resides in each of us doesn’t just hold pain, he or she also holds joy, abandon, wonder, and a true sense of play. Let’s not only hold those inner children as precious victims but also as mighty examples of how to live life fully. Let’s let our inner little boys and girls go out today and have some fun. Let them remind us how to laugh at ourselves, how to make messes we can be proud of and how to be generous and forgiving.

There is no obstacle that can’t be overcome.
There is no problem without a solution.
I will not be diminished by my circumstances.
As frustrating as roadblocks in life can be, there are none that can’t be overcome. If met with an obstacle in our path we can look for ways around, over, or even under it. If still no solution is apparent, we can seek Divine guidance and trust that a way to handle the situation will reveal itself. Most of the time we don’t really need to rush to find an answer – though we might think we do – and forcing one is rarely helpful in the long-term . Remember, if we worry or fight against a problem we only create resistance to finding a positive outcome but if we can approach it with an empowered and calm surety we create an opening for a solution to be known and a way forward to be shown.

I put my attention today on that which is abundant, prosperous and joyous, thereby planting the seeds that tomorrow may bring abundance, prosperity and joy.
Sometimes it’s hard for the mind to step out of what it sees as an inevitable reality (such as a future of doom and gloom) in order to realize that there is no inevitable reality. Tomorrow only exists in the mind and it is being created by the seeds that our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs are planting today. To stop the process of creating a future we don’t want to experience, we must begin by imagining the future we want today. We cannot plant turnip seeds if we want daisies to bloom tomorrow.
