Day 137

Affirmation:

I only make choices that are beneficial to my life and support my well-being.

I only make choices that support my growth into a  more empowered and more authentic, loving human.


It is easy to get into the habit of making choices that do not serve one’s life or self.   That may be the habit of choosing an unhealthy relationship, choosing to be in situations which promote victimhood, or choosing to worry (which offers nothing positive to any experience).   Consciously choosing that which is physically, emotionally, and spiritually healthy is always the right choice, for both the self and others.  Choosing to nourish the body with the healthiest possible food is choosing well-being.  Choosing to end or avoid engaging in toxic situations is choosing to support one’s growth.  Choosing to view oneself as worthy and valuable is choosing empowerment.  Choosing to feel compassion, tolerance, understanding and acceptance is choosing authenticity.   Choosing to have a positive attitude and positive thoughts is choosing to be a more positive, loving person.   Being conscious of what one is choosing – and whether or not the consequences of those choices  support well-being – is an important part of living a joyful, healthy, authentic life of love and truth.

Day 66

Affirmation:

If I never got lost, I’d never learn to find my way.

I accept the mystery of not-knowing.

I am grateful for all aspects of my journey.


Every day is a winding road that we’re traveling for the first time.  Some days we feel like seasoned navigators, others more like orphans dropped from the stars.   Our displaced orphan days are often the hardest to journey through.  Imagine being placed in a car, in the middle of a foreign landscape, with no knowledge of where you are, and being told to drive to a city called Point B.  Not knowing where we are in life can feel much the same, but those are the days of *growth* and *expansion*.   Those are the times we have opportunities to cultivate faith, build inner strength and surrender to the mystery.  And it doesn’t matter if we get lost, because it isn’t about the destination,  it’s what we learn along the way.

Day 1 

Affirmation:

I am born again in the life that was waiting for me.

I am the author of my life and I alone am responsible for how I live it.

I am true to myself.

I am not threatened by the fears of others.

I will never again let life tell me no.

I am free to live and I began today.

____________

Let this be the year for the birthing of our authentic natures.   Let each of us allow our true selves and  true potential  to come forth and express.   Let our gifts be shared, our passions blaze, our hearts love fully.  Let this be the year for breaking free from the fear, the doubt and the lack of self-worth that have crippled our genuine expressions.   Let’s not be concerned with the unaccepting opinions of others, for they speak through the filter of their own fears.    Or worry about going alone; love will always support and encourage, even when it doesn’t understand.    Let this be the year to surrender any notion of who we think we ought to be  so that who we are can flow freely forth from our inner to our outer beings.   Let’s commit to living as the unlimited and expanding expressions of LIFE that we are, beginning now, this first day of this new year.

Day 189

Affirmation:

I am grateful for the gift of differing views and opinions, opposing perspectives and beliefs, and unrecognizable ideologies.  Such gifts of diversity offer me opportunities for expansion, compassion, tolerance and gratitude.

           ____________

What a boring world it would be if we were all the same.  If everyone had the same beliefs, attitudes, thoughts and feelings, there would be nothing to facilitate broader understanding or promote the learning of foreign ideas.  In fact there would be no foreign ideas.  From differences and diversity we learn tolerance and acceptance.  We may not always agree with other’s choices or modes of self-expression, but from those differences we learn to respect and appreciate individuality.  Embracing differences promotes a deep and reverent gratitude for the opportunity to live in a world filled with so many divergent expressions.

Day 158

Affirmation:

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.]

Day 128

Affirmation:

I accept that sometimes I must let go in order to grow.

However difficult it can be, I respect loss as a part of expansion.

                      __________________________

Imagine you are driving from Los Angeles to New York.  To prepare for the trip you will probably want to clean out the car.  You’ll make sure the trunk and back seat area have plenty of room for your luggage and anything you might collect along the way.   But what if the car is crammed full of stuff before you ever leave L.A?   You won’t have much room for anything new you might discover on your journey.   Well the journey through life is a lot like that journey across the United States.  You have to know when you’re overloaded with what you don’t need anymore, and let it go, in order to collect new experiences.  I’m talking about things like attachments to the past-old wounds, regrets and blame-and present attachments that are unproductive or unhealthy.  Sometimes a dream needs to die in order to make way for a new one.  Sometimes a hope must be let go of in order to realize something better.  Sometimes a relationship must be left in order to know a healthier or more meaningful experience.  Very often the losses we need to experience in order to know growth are not by our choice, but are thrust upon us.  A loss, however it is disguised, and by whatever means it arrives, is a signal for growth.  It is the removal of something you’ve held on to, in order that you might experience something else.  Letting go and loss are rarely experienced easily, but when resisted, the difficulty is only intensified and prolonged.  Surrender to loss, and let go of what is no longer useful, and you create space in your experience for new, unimagined opportunities for expansion, joy, and well-being.
