Day 125

Affirmation:

I celebrate life.

I celebrate the miracles, joys, successes, bounty, imperfection, health, love, triumph, growth, prosperity, support, opportunities and Presence, in my life.

I celebrate the big reveals in the small details.

I celebrate living.


Life is not always easy but it always holds something to cherish, to honour and to celebrate.  It may be storming but outside birds still sing.   Find a reason to celebrate.  Look around the world and see the goodness, the glory and the greatness!  Look in the mirror and see the smile, the wisdom and the potential!    Rejoice in the monumental small details, the clean water, the gentle hug, the bee that dances from flower to flower.   Celebrate good times, past, present, and future.   Celebrate the Divine and Sacred gift of existence!   Find a reason, any or none at all, but CELEBRATE!

And if my passionate words aren’t enough…. listen and just try not to dance!  Celebrate!

Day 124

Affirmation:

Today I will make time to experience the wonders of the physical world.

I will deliberately pay attention to the wonders all around me.

I will look,

I will SEE,

and I will be in AWE.


In the United States the interstate highway maximum design speed in rural areas is 75 mph.   Speeds on a single-track country road in the United Kingdom can be as high as 60 mph (97 km/h).   On Italy’s Autostrade, speeds can reach 150 km/h.   Bicyclists average 12-22 mph.  Joggers average 4-7 mph.  Even the average walking speed is 3.1 miles per hour.  How much do we actually see at any of those speeds?  Consider all the wonders that are missed because we are moving too fast to see that odd little bug toodling across the pavement, or the rabbit scurrying under the bushes, or the water droplet precariously perched for its descent on the edge of a blade of grass?  As children we didn’t just look at nature, we SAW it, but as adults we have places to go and things to do and speeds to keep, much to our detriment.  Seeing the wonder of nature keeps us humble, connected and centered in the mystery.  Take time to go out in the world for the sole purpose of witnessing the wonder.  Don’t just walk, kneel, reach and SEE.  If you don’t remember how, take a child along and follow their lead!

Rinse and repeat.  All day.  Even if none of the above are true, what we think so do we become – especially when thought repeatedly – so these words can become our truth.   Recite the words till they are felt, each of them.  Feel passionate, feel the  ego loosen its grasp, feel money flowing into the experience, feel love for all creation and creation’s love for us. By saying the words, thinking the words, feeling the words and believing the words true,, their meaning becomes our reality.

Day 89

Affirmation:

I keep my focus in the direction of my desires.


If we desire abundance but keep seeing lack everywhere we look, we need to turn and look in a different direction.  If we desire health but our attention is only on ailing, we must change our point of view.  We cannot experience, achieve, or manifest a desire if we’re looking in the direction of what we do not want.  And since we can only see in the direction we face, we must be facing that which we desire.  If we desire harmony, we must look in the direction of harmony rather than staring at discord.  If we wish to have a life we are grateful for, we must be seeing that which we are grateful for.  If we do not like what we’re seeing, we must change our position.

Day 87

Affirmation:

I am a garden

I am creation manifest.

I am growing, evolving, transforming and bearing the fruits of love abundantly.

I nourish myself of my harvest and share infinitely with others.


In our most natural state, we are gardens.  We grow strongest in well fertilized soil, are in a constant state of transformation, and our existence is often plagued with pests and weeds, but with mindfulness, and the help of others, we overcome and become productive.  Our perennial crop is love, and when upon harvest we have enough for ourselves and others.

Day 76 

Affirmation:

I have enough.

I am enough.

I see abundance, plenty and potential everywhere I look.

I appreciate what I have.

I appreciate all I am.

I express gratitude daily for all that I have and all that I am.


It’s so easy to be drawn in by the lure of lack and insufficiency, our media sources drown us daily with information about what we don’t have enough of  – things like health, style, beauty, security, financial freedom and excitement.  And media very generously offers the solutions to these same shortage problems – drugs, fashion trends, makeup and cosmetic surgery,  insurance and investment options and a slick sports car with a sexy passenger.  Those same media sources also try to convince us that what we do have isn’t good enough – think bigger house, fuller breasts, whiter teeth, greener lawns, more sexual vigor and fewer gray hairs.  The outside world is constantly selling us the idea that what we have and what we are is not enough.  No wonder our attention is constantly falling on what we believe is missing or in short supply!  The truth is that we already have and are so much more than we think.

To see what we have we need to shift our perspective from one of lack and shortage to one of abundance and flow.  That shift begins by recognizing how often we put our attention on what we want more of, less of or better. While some want is born of a desire for expansion, as in, “I want to someday take a trip to Spain,” most want has a very different energy, as in , “I want a more agreeable and loving partner.” (which translates to, “I don’t have a very agreeable and loving partner.”)  And it’s the want that comes from lack that keeps us in misery.  Once we recognize our patterns of wanting and from where they derive,  we can make a switch and start thinking instead about what we have.

By shifting from constant thoughts of “I want…” to  constant thoughts of “I have…” we begin to appreciate what we  already possess and experience and how perfectly it has served us.  Thoughts of “I have…” and the gratitude they provoke are the seeds for future abundance and plenty.  When we see that same partner with grateful “I have…” eyes, we start to notice wonderful traits previously hidden by our discontent and our attitude toward them changes.  Most amazingly, as our perspective changes from want to have, the things we have and appreciate begin to transform and become the things we always wanted.

Day 51

Affirmation:

I choose a positive perspective no matter what my situation is.


If we see ourselves as victims of this world we cannot feel grateful for all that is right in our lives . If our focus is on what we perceive as lacking, we can not see all that we have. But when we come at life from the other side, seeing what we love and want and cherish and appreciate and learn from, we no longer see what we don’t want, don’t like, and don’t feel good about.  When our focus is on what is uplifting, we don’t see what brings us down.  When our hearts are feeling grateful for the plenty we do have, we aren’t giving attention to what we think is missing.   While in the midst of positive, limitless, hopeful thoughts, we are not having negative, limiting and doubting thoughts.  Having and maintaining a positive perspective changes everything because it changes everything.

Day 25

Affirmation:

My glass is FULL and my life abundant.

I accept only the fullness of All-That-Is and is possible for myself and my life.


If one sees the glass of their life as half-empty they’re a pessimist.

If one sees the glass of their life as half-full they’re an optimist.

But even the glass that’s half-full can be seen as half-empty with a slight and simple turn of the head (change in perspective) so beginning today let’s see the glass as only *full*.  Half of something just isn’t good enough anymore!

If the glass of our life is half-empty we’re pessimistic.
If the glass of our life is half-full we’re optimistic.

If we see the glass of our life as full we’re living an abundant, prosperous and grateful journey.

Day 253
Affirmation:

We thank the Powers of Creation- the known and unknowable- that exist within each of us and in everything around us, for our existence and presence in the world today.

We give thanks for the abundance in our lives that is so often taken for granted-from the smallest, most forgettable to the gifts that sustain us.

We give thanks for connections– for people coming and going in our lives, for sharing, laughter, to support and to love. We also give thanks for the people who challenge our well being- those teachers who force us to reach inside and choose to be better than their example.

We are blessed with freedom while many are imprisoned, fullness while many hunger, peace while many know only war, and prosperity while many live in poverty.

We give thanks for all these blessings and for the Infinite Love that lights the paths of our journeys.

Day 136

Affirmation:

I stand in the present moment of my life, assessing and appreciating the abundant harvest that surrounds me.

                                   ______________________________

What do you see when you look at your life?  Do you see the gifts, the glory, the generosity the world has bestowed on you?  Do you see today?  Or do you see tomorrow, what you have yet to face, or a myriad of certain yet-to-exist struggles?   Any of us can be the farmer who, when looking at his fields, abundant and thriving, immediately begins calculating the cost and effort to plant the next season’s crop.  Or we can stand next to our fertile lives, pausing to admire the bounty we have created for ourselves and that which the world shares with us.  It’s a choice.  What will you choose?

Day 121

Affirmation:

I embrace and claim a life of abundance.

I am surrounded by unlimited abundance and connected to it all.

I joyfully recognize the abundant blessings that are mine in this moment.

I give thanks for the abundance in my life and that which is manifesting

                                    ________________________

To live in abundance we must live in abundance.  It sounds like a riddle but it’s no joke.   Spiritual laws and modern physics both teach us that what we put our attention on expands.   If my attention is on shortage and lack, shortage and lack will expand in my life.  If I put my attention on the abundance in my experience, abundance will expand.  Many find it difficult to focus on plenty when they have an area of lack in their lives (lack of love, money or health, for example) but to facilitate the shift from lack to abundance that is exactly what must be done.   Find what is right, what is present, what is good, what is abundant in your world and sing its praises.  Feel wealthy with what you have.  If need be, think about all those who have so much less, and let that by your perspective point.   No matter how bankrupt we feel in some area of our lives, we all have some aspect of that which we desire already in our experience.   Need a thousand but only have twenty?  Feel grateful for that twenty and all it offers.   It is SOMETHING.   Want a lover but only have a friend?  Let your heart swell with the abundance of love that friendship offers.  It is SOMETHING.   When you realize you have something and NOT nothing, that something can expand.  Whatever you have, embrace it, hold it in gratitude and in joy.   Let your attention fall upon how much is good and right and abundant and what is good and right and abundant will increase.

Day 114

Affirmation:

I keep my thoughts positive and on what is right, working, and abundant in my life.

If  a negative thought enters my mind, I do not give it any merit or attention, I replace it with a positive thought.

I put my mental and emotional attention on the thoughts that promote  joy, happiness, feeling good, peace, harmony, gratitude, well-being, empowerment, and love.

                        _______________________________________

Every time you have a thought you plant a seed in your mind that has the potential to grow and become part of your physical experience.  This is how you create your world, your tomorrows and your next moments, with your thoughts, planting one seed at a time.  The attention we give to those thought-seeds is the fertilizer they need to grow.  If a thought merely passes through one’s consciousness, it is unlikely to ever become a manifested experience.  But if a thought-seed is fed one’s attention, it is being nurtured and it will begin to grow roots.  When the attention we place on our  thought-seed is imbued with emotion, we are feeding it with the most powerful fertilizer and is likely to sprout into physical reality.  If I have a thought such as, “I am without love.”  I have planted a “without love” seed.   If  I give that thought-seed my continued attention and focus, and if I have strong emotions accompanying my attention, that seed will likely become a manifested  experience of being or feeling “without love” in my physical world.   This is why it can be so hard to lift ourselves out of a negative state of mind.  Every negative thought plants a seed that produces more of the same, leaving us spiraling in a difficult direction.   This is also why it is so important to think thoughts of what we want, what we love, what we hope for more of, what we dream of having, and of what is right, functioning, and abundant in our lives.  By planting positive thought-seeds, we are growing more of what we love, want, and are grateful for in our lives and experiences.   No one grows corn by planting onions.

Day 52

Affirmation:

I live free from fear and its many expressions.

I am safe, loved, and my future secured in faith and positive affirmation.

I replace all doubts with certainty and  gratitude for all that is right and abundant in my life.

                                                   ________________

Last night I went to bed overwhelmed with appreciation and humbled by the beautiful course my life is on and all the loving support I am wrapped in.  I woke this morning unnerved and apprehensive, little questioning doubts creeping into my mind.  Life is good and my delightful ego, doing its job so well, recognized the risk in such a state– it might not last, it might all collapse, it might turn sour, something might go wrong.  Risk usually comes with fear and fear always bring forth the ego which seeks to protect the self from any threat.  I sat and embraced the risk, eliminated the fear (replacing it with faith and positive beliefs) and breathed again in gratitude for the abundance, love, and joy that are here now.  Life can always collapse around us at any moment.  Sometimes it’s even necessary and proper that it do so, but sometimes it does so only because (over time) our fears of collapse have created it.   Accept risk without fear, replace doubt with certainty,  and live in gratitude for what is here and now.

Day 46

Affirmation:

I am worthy of having love.

I am worthy of having abundant resources.

I am worthy of having health.

I am worthy of having happiness.

I am worthy of having it all.

 

Few of us REALLY think we’re worthy of ‘having it all’;  most of us have at least one area of resistance. That area is an easy one to find– it’s the one thing that’s never worked out for us, the one issue we’ve always had (or can’t get rid of) or the one dream we never seem to have (or keep)  fulfilled.

Today I will ask myself, do I really BELIEVE and feel in my deepest places that I am worthy of having it all?  I will consider: Where does my resistance live? Does my inner being really believe I can have health and friendships but resists feeling completely worthy of wealth? Does my inner being feel truly worthy of a loving faithful partner or is that where my resistance is?

Today I intend to consider all this and then begin working to remove any resistance I might have to having it all.
