I consciously create the legacy I wish to leave.
I act in harmony with how I wish to one day be remembered.
How we remember someone when they leave this world is largely the result of how they lived. We are remembered for our words and our deeds. It is not the selfish, intolerant and cruel who are remembered as heroes, saints and humanitarians. While no one should live their life worrying about what others think, it can be a nice wake up call to stop and ask, “What do I want to be remembered for when my time here is done?” If the answers are in harmony with how we’re now living, then who we are and how we want to be thought of are aligned. If they are not, it’s never too late to begin living the legacy we desire to leave. It’s not too hard either. To be remembered as a gentle warrior for love, gently love. To be remembered as a shooting star, work toward your dreams. To be remembered as authentic, be yourself.

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 trust and accept all the good things that make their way into my experience.
I trust and accept all the love offered me.
I trust and accept that peace and happiness are my birthright.
We’ve all experienced it– that moment when we look for the imperfection in what appears to be flawless. It’s that split-second when our wounded, frightened emotional self rises up, takes the helm, and announces, “This is too good to be true.” When that moment happens our perspective shifts from open-hearted acceptance to fear-based faithlessness. The experience can spark a witch-hunt for reasons to doubt someone’s words or distrust their actions, no matter how full of integrity they truly are. Of course what we’re really hunting for are reasons to sabotage the flow of good in our lives, either to avoid being vulnerable or to validate the belief that we aren’t worthy. Whatever the underlying reason, if we allow ourselves to proceed with sirens blaring, looking for evidence to support our negative storytelling, our hearts will close up and close off what could be the best thing to ever happen to us. We will find completely erroneous reasons to push away the very things we deeply desire and yearn for, and “too good to be true,” will become “too good to let be true for me.”

My actions are in harmony with my intentions and motivations.
I have no hidden agenda; I live with honesty and integrity.
I say what I mean and I mean what I say.
My words and actions are authentic.
Living a spiritually attuned life requires authenticity, the sort of authenticity expressed as motivations that are in harmony with actions. Living authentically means being free of any hidden agendas in interactions with others or the world. Instead of being nice to the boss in order to get a promotion, the person living authentically is nice to the boss because they are being nice. Someone living authentically will not have an ulterior motive. They give for the sake of giving. They do for the sake of doing. They ask because they are interested. They help because they wish to help. They love for the sake of loving.

I engage in right speech.
I do not say anything away from someone that I would not say to their face.
No one likes to imagine, think, or know that they are being talked about behind their back. Yet we have all done so to another, at least once in our lives. One day I was speaking to my brother about a relative, who, it turned out, was standing right behind me. What I was saying was not necessarily unkind, but it was not something I would have said directly to her. I learned my lesson. If I would not speak my words about another to their face, I should not speak them at all.
