I am stronger than I appear to be.
I am stronger than I think I am.
I am not yet as strong as I will be.
We may be physically small, weak, or feel challenged by our body, age, or intellect, but no matter what the perceived limitation, we are ALL stronger than we appear to be, and undeniably stronger than we think we are. The strength I’m referring to is inner strength, what we think of as courage, determination, fortitude, grace and integrity. This inner strength has carried each of us through life’s storms. It has given us the will to get out of bed when we all we want to do is hide under the covers. Our strength allows us to stand up for others without a second thought. It nudges us gently into relationships that are so good they scare us, and forcefully walks us away from those so bad they wound us. Our inner strength allows us to face our fears, go for our goals, recover from pain, and express ourselves authentically.
Think of a time when you were sure you could not take another step in life, a time when hope was nothing more than another 4-letter word. Something propelled you out of the abyss. What was it? It wasn’t the friend, book or doctor. It was you. Before anything external can help us move from misery to recovery, we must first reach the point of wanting better for ourselves and creating that space where better can be seeded. And it is inner strength that births that desire for better, allowing us to find or accept help. Our strength never leaves us, no matter what happens to our bodies or our situations. Not only is it a permanent part of our beings, it grows with each trial. It reminds us that we’ve overcome before and will again. It says, “If I could go through that, I can get through anything.”

I am flexible in my journey, how it unfolds and where it leads.
I am open to seeing new doors as they appear in front of me, walking through them if invited.
I let go my rigid expectations and create an open space of willingness to accept and receive the unexpected gifts of the Universe.
I allow my fixed dreams and desires to become malleable.
We all know someone who has stopped struggling toward a goal or desire, only to then achieve it. Or let go of a dream, certain it would never be realized, only to then know something better or even more fulfilling. Imagine how many people have missed out on great relationships, jobs, and experiences because those presented them didn’t match their criteria. Life rarely offers the straight and well paved road to where we wish to be. More often it’s filled with unexpected twists and turns, and blind corners that keep us guessing. If we are willing to be flexible and open to the unknown, if we are willing to trust that there is a universal force at work in our lives that knows even better than we do how to reach our desired happiness, and if we surrender our small will to that force, miracles will happen. When we create a space of openness in our hearts and minds for the unknown and are willing to step forward and say YES to it, we make ourselves and our lives available for all that is beautiful, fulfilling and joy-full.

The foundation of my life is built from the inside out.
I consciously live my life upon a strong, enduring, and independent foundation of self-worth.
We can appreciate the opinions others have of us- both good and not so -but the opinions we have of ourselves are those from which we must cultivate our self-worth. Valuing and validating ourselves based on the feedback of the external world makes for an unsteady, temporary and dependent foundation of self-worth. In truth, the worth found in the feedback of others or the world is not self-worth at all, it is external-worth. Self-worth is inner-worth, a sense of value that originates from within the self. What the world thinks can support our feelings of self-worth but is an artificial and unstable source for them.

Each morning I begin again, alive with hope, determination, and courage.
I awaken to each day as if awakening to another incarnation.
Every new day delivers the promise of full potential. Each morning is the start of a new, 24-hour lifetime. No matter what setbacks or disappointments yesterday brought, a new day promises new opportunities and every chance to start again- in love, hope, courage, faith, determination, and empowerment.

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.

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.

I see miracles everywhere.
I see all miracles as created equal.
I am humbled and awed by the miracles of life and existence that are all around me.
I welcome all miracles into my experience.
I am grateful for the miracles in my life.
There are no small miracles. There are no big miracles. To the universal font of creation a life-saving healing is no bigger or greater an occurrence than a fortuitous encounter on the street. Creation does not know the limits of more and less because creation It-self is limitless. All creation is equally meaningful to its Creator. Humans assign degrees of importance, worth, and value to acts of creation because we think in terms of judgment, limitation and duality. The Universe does not. From a non-physical perspective, every encounter, every birth, every happenstance, every synchronicity, every bit of support made manifest is just as grand and meaningful as every other.
We don’t have to limit ourselves and our thinking either. We can learn to think like the Universe. The job, the relationship, the healing, the purpose, the resources, the human being, the ant, the quiet moment, the parking space up front, the coupon for free gas, the feather, and the cloud can all be embraced equally without measuring one against the other. When we view our experiences and the world as independent of all else – without comparing or thinking of bigger or smaller, lesser or greater- we see each as meaningful and miraculous- period.

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 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).
