I release any judgments that I hold about myself or others.
I avoid labeling, contrasting and comparing.
I accept that all things just ARE.
Labeling and comparing (things to things and people to people) produces judgments and valuations. When self-judgments are held onto we keep ourselves trapped within the ego space and duality. When we hold onto judgments about others we keep ourselves trapped within the ego space and duality. But when we release ourselves from the habits of duality- placing all things into categories of good or bad, less or more, better or worse- we begin to experience unity and Divine grace. We begin to find ourselves in the heart space. When we let go the habits of duality we see all things as varying expressions of the One- creating contrast, opportunity, and diversity. And appreciating all of it.

I am a passionate being.
I allow my passion to ignite life within me.
I find infinite opportunities to experience and express passionately.
Passion is the inner spark of the Divine come ablaze. Passion is the outward expression of an internal expression of the heart. Passion inspires and activates potential. It’s a causation for creation. It emboldens us to life and living. Passion creates an opening by which the Divine can manifest in the world, thru the body, mind and heart. Passion may be an intimate exchange with another but it is ALWAYS an intimate exchange between ourselves and our Source. I give myself permission to be the passionate being I AM.

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.

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.

I am Passionately, Bliss-fully, and Joy-fully alive.
I am Passionately, Bliss-fully, and Joy-fully connected.
I am Passionately, Bliss-fully, and Joy-fully in love.
I am Passionately, Bliss-fully, and Joy-fully healthy.
I am Passionately, Bliss-fully, and Joy-fully wealthy.
I am Passionately, Bliss-fully, and Joy-fully on purpose.
I am Passionately, Bliss-fully, and Joy-fully grateful.
I am Passionately, Bliss-fully, and Joy-fully surrendered.
I am Passionately, Bliss-fully, and Joy-fully MYSELF.
If passion is the divine spark, and bliss the divine breath, joy is the quality that animates them both, turning breath into the wind that feeds the spark into a fire. Whatever we do today let’s do it with PASSION (divine enthusiasm ) BLISS (divine at-one-ness) and JOY (divine happiness).

I completely surrender today’s trials, disappointments and concerns over to the Universe, to work through on my behalf.
I release all unpleasant emotions I have carried with me today.
I free myself of today’s worries, upsets and frustrations.
Tomorrow is a new day, a fresh start, a new beginning.
Tomorrow I will begin life anew, in peace and faith.
Some days are just more effort than any should be. Some days seem to be overflowing with challenges and struggles, both perceived and real. Some days we wish we could just disappear. And it’s on those days that we can find comfort in the sun’s departure, because at night, during sleep, we can disappear. For a few hours we are able to journey into our subconscious, dreams and the astral world. But before going to sleep we need to release pent-up stress and emotions. If we don’t we’re likely to sleep horribly and wake with the same stresses, possibly magnified, in our consciousness. The release can be spoken, thought, drawn, written, visualized, exhaled, or chanted–it makes no difference how it’s done. Once the day’s troubles are truly surrendered (to the Universe/God/Self) sleep should come easily, and when we reawaken into our physical lives in the morning, we can do so with a new outlook, a fresh hope.

Today I intend to smile at everyone, everywhere I go.
It’s a good day to *SMILE* ! If for no other reason than we all feel better when we smile and we all like feeling GOOD! Smile at strangers instead of looking away. Smile at someone you don’t get along with–and leave ‘em wondering! Smile at your own face in the mirror! Smile because you are YOU and because you CAN! Just by smiling you’ll affect the energy around you and people will respond. They may find themselves feeling better too – they might even smile back! Don’t feel like smiling? Force it. Fake it. It might just stick 🙂

In moments of stillness I become at-one with all Creation.
Today I will practice deliberate stillness of mind and body.
The infinity of The ALL is found in the pause of no-thing-ness and that pause can be deliberately experienced with a bit conscious intention. Consider making the effort to *STOP* several times throughout the day today to quiet your mind into silence, to relax your body into non-action, and to be fully present in that moment of Life thru stillness. Attempt to experience this brief “pause” each time you move from one activity to the next in your daily routine.

I am blessed with abundant love in my life.
I am never alone or without love.
I am loved by forces unseen at all times.
There are times when we all feel alone in the world or without the love and support of one true friend. Perhaps those experiences happen so as to inspire us to look beyond the obvious and visible. Even if stranded on an island in the middle of an infinite sea, one is not alone or without love. Each of us was given, upon our birth, one True Friend on the planet on whom we could always depend. This one person would be with us our entire lives, know everything about us and still love us unconditionally. This one person would stand with us even when we treated them terribly. This one person is our very own self and no person can love us more than we love ourselves.
We are each of us also blessed with love and support beyond this world. The Divine, that unexplainable formless Presence, is an infinite Source of True Love and Friendship. Whether we look within our hearts or to the Heavens, Divine Love is always with us, guiding, nurturing, supporting and loving us unconditionally all the hours of our lives. Be it Divine or Self, love is ours and always with us even when we feel terribly alone.
When I have uncertainty, I reach for faith.
When I have worry, I reach for faith.
When I have apprehension, I reach for faith.
When I have no control, I reach for faith.
When I have no direction, I reach for faith.
St. Paul wrote that faith is, “the evidence of things unseen, and the substance of things hoped for.” Faith has the ability to promote a renewed sense of confidence and optimism, and faith is always at our disposal. It is cultivated from within an open heart, where knowing and believing in goodness, grace and our connection to the Divine permanently dwell. When actions are fruitless, thoughts are wayward, and weariness begins to take hold, draw on faith for the courage and strength to move beyond the uncertainty and into clarity.

I recognize creation alive and abundant around me.
I am in awe of the divine will that creates life from intention.
Today I will spend time noticing life around me.
Everywhere life abounds in its manifested, pulsing, breathing, expanding state. Look in the mirror and see life reflected back. Look at the people around you and see them as the animated manifestations of creation they are. Go outside and sit for ten minutes, still and present-ly aware of the life amidst you. See the insects, flying and crawling. Observe the plants newly sprouted, the vines newly tendrilled, the flowers newly opened. Consider the fact that only a few hours, days or weeks ago, some of what you see was still unmanifest. Consider the awesome power of creation that took a seed and transformed it into a shoot, then a tree, then a branch, then a bud, then a flower, then a fruit. Witness life and be in the wonder and magic of creation.

I trust my gut.
I listen to my inner wisdom.
I heed the mental red flags.
I pay attention to my intuition.
The inner guidance system operates through non-sensory channels. It’s a feeling or a nudge, a sense of something that doesn’t arise from the brain, and the little voice whispering from a shoulder. If you’ve ever walked into a room and felt uneasy for no visible reason- that’s your inner guidance. If you’ve ever met someone with whom you felt immediately and inexplicably comfortable- that’s your inner guidance. If you’ve ever felt the overwhelming need to call someone, go back home and check on something, or divert from your normal route- that’s your inner guidance. Very often our inner guidance is ignored because it seems illogical, unnecessary or without basis in fact, but sometimes the facts are a mystery to us. Our inner beings, higher selves, and those non-physical beings who guide and support us, use that inner guidance to help us stay on our path, and the more we take notice and trust the feelings, the more we begin to see just how amazing and abundant the support is. It is our direct link to the Divine. Start getting used to listening to your feelings, begin trusting them a little more each day, even if they don’t make sense, and see just how beautifully the universe operates when we allow ourselves to flow in the rhythm of the sublime. Next time you have a feeling about something, follow it, act on it, see where it leads. Don’t over think, don’t analyze, just start the process of trusting and be a part of the magic, by choice.

I choose to be in relationships that support my evolution into consciousness.
I choose to be in relationships that promote my spiritual integration.
I choose to be in relationships that respect me, my choices, my path and my intention, even if they do not agree with them.
I choose to be in relationships that are authentic, heart-centered, and embody the Divine.
I choose to work toward healing relationships that have lost their way but hold potential.
I choose to leave relationships that deny me my-self, my choice, my path and my intention.
I choose to leave relationships that willfully deny me support, consideration and reciprocation.
I choose to leave relationships that inhibit my expression and growth, or the expression and growth of the other.
I choose to leave relationships in which I am not engaging from, or being engaged from, love.
The more you grow and become the empowered, conscious, integrated and evolving spiritual being you are, the more you will find yourself uncomfortable in relationships with those who are living from a different perspective. You will begin to feel a need for authentic relationships. Authentic relationships are those that are evolved beyond the ego, the small self and the small mind. They are created in heart-centered consciousness and embody spiritual evolution and integration of mind, body and spirit. They promote harmony, inter-dependence, unconditional support, and are founded in loving intention. If there is a goal or reason for authentic relationships it is to support each other’s individual growth and expansion. Authentic relationships are conscious choices, not obligations. They are wants, not needs. Authentic relationships may be short-lived or life-long. There is a very conscious understanding in authentic relationships that when the relationship no longer serves both parties, it can dissolve naturally, instead of being clung to out of an ego-centered need. That does not mean that authentic relationships do not have conflict, but conflict is understood as a natural part of two wholes expressing individuality. When conflict does arise, it is resolved mutually and respectfully. The more authentically you live your life, the more you will desire authentic relationships. That may mean leaving those which no longer promote expansion, are incongruent with your path, or find you unable to be supportive of the other. It may also mean being authentic in your half of a relationship that you wish to maintain, such as with a family member, though they have differing views. In those situations we learn to be authentic in our own selves while respecting the evolutionary path of others. Living in harmony does not mean isolation from those who resonate to a different beat, but in our interpersonal relationships it does mean engaging as authentically as possible.
[Note: I wish I could have posted with a picture of people engaged in an authentic relationship but the reality is that authentic relationships do not ‘look’ any different from others. I chose this photo because it makes visible the attributes of an evolved, authentic relationship.]

I take daily walks with The Divine.
When I am experiencing love, I am walking with my Source. When I see beauty, feel compassion, place my trust in faith, or feel joy, I am walking with The Presence. When I love, love other humans, love the planet, or love a piece of music, I am walking with Divinity. Any and every time I am experiencing love or any expression of love, I am walking hand-in-hand with God. Today I begin the habit of being aware of this daily communion.

When I am creating I am at-one with the Divine.
I choose to consciously engage creation in my life.
Creation is the process of bringing forth something new. When we create we engage our own inner divinity as a Creator. It doesn’t matter what we are creating. Every time we cook, draw, write, solve a problem, have an idea, imagine, plan, garden, or make up a bedtime story, we are creating. Every time a pot of coffee is made, something that did not exist a moment before is created. Each time a mathematical problem is solved, an answer is created. Humans have unlimited powers of creation but often think in terms of grand results when thinking themselves creators. To the Universe, the creation of an amoeba is no less signficant than any other creation, just because an amoeba is so small. Creating a hi-rise building does not engage the creative process any more than creating a quilt….for a doll house. Engaging in some act of creation, by choice and consciously, opens a channel for the Divine to work with us, and for us to connect to our authentic natures, more readily.

I am always connected to my Source.
I keep my heart open so that I can share my spark of the Divine with the world.
My intention for today is to remember that I am not separate from my Source (God/HigherSelf/Love/Light). I do not have to open myself up in order to “let God in”. God is ALREADY in. I must open myself up in order to let God OUT. And when I do, I allow God to love thru my heart all those I meet… Including the one I meet in the mirror.

I’ll smile at someone I don’t get along with–and leave ’em wondering! I’ll smile at my own face in the mirror! I’ll smile because I’m ME, because I am Loved by the Divine, because I CAN! By smiling I’ll change the energy around me and people will respond, they may feel better — they might even smile back!
