Day 64

Affirmation:

I listen to the wisdom of my body and respect my body’s need for regular rest.

When I am tired, I stop.

When I am sleepy, I sleep.


Everyone seems to like the idea of finding balance in this manic, fast-paced world but we often forget that part of balance is rest.   Our bodies are the vehicles for our experiences, the bearers of our minds, hearts, and souls.  We can’t experience harmony when we ignore our bodily need for rest.  In a get-it-done-yesterday, more-is-better,  modern world, we like to override the natural need for rest with chemicals or by simply ignoring the message our body is sending.  When the body is tired and we ignore it, we put it into stress, and that can lead to trouble down the road.   We need to listen to the wisdom of the body.  It knows best what it needs to keep going optimally.   Instead of coffee or an energy drink – both meant to keep us going when the body wants otherwise – we’d do better to stop for ten minutes and meditate or take a cat nap.  When it comes to sleep,  the physical body functions best on a regular sleep schedule.  The number of hours needed varies from person to person, but consistency is ideal.  A body listened to and allowed to rest regularly and consistently is a body that will perform optimally.  The body will always tell us what it needs.  And if we learn to listen now, it might not have to scream, “STOP!” in some unpleasant way, later on.

Day 55

Affirmation:

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.

Day 30

Affirmation:

I love beyond fear.

I love with the fullness of my being.

I love with a complete commitment to loving.

I love without expectation, comparison, or attachment.

I love with surrender, vulnerability and daring.

I love for the sake of loving.

I love in the present.

I love.


 

To love with only half of one’s heart is an incomplete act.  Refraining from complete surrender is usually meant to protect one’s emotions and sense of self from some sort of possible threat.  It is much like sending only half of one’s army to battle, leaving the other half to defend the kingdom.  It may make sense to those whose only goal is to protect the empire but to those who wish to win the battle, all must be committed to the cause.   To love is to risk pain, perhaps even in the most melodramatic sense, ruin.   Yet to love and be loved is the very ache every heart longs to fulfill.  Every soul desires that the arrow of love pierce and impale itself in our hearts.  We want to win the battle most of all but to have complete love we must commit our hearts to giving love completely, in spite of its risks and in favor of its infinite rewards.   Yes, love hurts but there is no more sweeter wound than that which befalls the soldier on the battlefield of love.  There is no cause more worthy of our commitment.   And there is no greater victory than conquering fear and living in the spoils of true love.

Day 23

Affirmation:

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.

Day 19

Affirmation:

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.

Day 14

Affirmation:

I am ever grateful to a Universe that never fails to ensure I have support.

I am grateful to those who show up in my life to help me overcome challenges and sort through life’s confusion.

I walk my journey always with the support of at least one other loving soul, to whom I am grateful.


 

This brilliant, loving, Divine Universe never allows us to find ourselves in the middle of an issue, struggle, challenge, obstacle, difficulty, trauma or heartache without ensuring that we have at least one human companion to help us through.  That person may be a stranger with sage wisdom or brute strength, or it may be a beloved with time to listen.  They may be in our lives only to help us through that problem, or they might be or become a lifelong friend.  We may feel totally and utterly alone in the world, but there is always someone, somewhere in our experience, who is there specifically to help.  The key is to allow our earth angel into our experience.  We can’t be so stuck in feelings of isolation that we do not see or hear their presence.  They are there, waiting for us to give them an opening.  No matter how hard life gets, remember- somewhere in the world is at least one person, sent and ready to help, when we are ready to receive.

Day 4

Affirmation:

I am a limitless expression of the Divine.


 

There are no boundaries around human potential.    It’s as infinite as the imagination.   The walls we bump into aren’t there to tell us we’ve reached our limit; they’re obstacles put in place to test our resolve (“How badly do you want this?”) or lead us toward a better path of fulfillment.

“When asked if she could ride a two-wheeler,  Lily didn’t say she couldn’t because she’d never ridden one – which she hadn’t – no, she just smiled her authentic six-year-old Lily smile and said, “I don’t know, I haven’t tried yet.”

Day 232

Affirmation:

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 🙂

Day 231

Affirmation:

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.

Day 230

Affirmation:

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.

Day 166

Affirmation:

I make it a priority to prepare my inner being for each day.

My soul  is just as valuable to me as my body and I give both equal care.

                                                              ____________________ 

At the start of each day we dress our bodies with clothes, jewelry, makeup, hats, hair products, shoes and other items meant to make us both feel good and keep us protected from the environment.   Most people make a fair effort in this daily dressing of the body, even referring to it as a daily ritual.  What if we were to apply that same daily care and devotion to the soul and spirit?   In fact, our inner being needs daily care and dressing just as much as the body does.  It needs to be bathed in stillness and silence.  It needs to be protected from the environment in garments of light and love.  The soul yearns to be daily nourished by a conscious flowing connection to its Source.   It aches to be adorned with beautiful jewels such as grace, gratitude and devotion.   Creating a morning ritual that dresses the soul for the day can be as simple as spending a few moments in prayer or as involved as a deep meditation or yoga practice.  The choice is always ours, but we should at least consider preparing the inner world before stepping into the outer one.   Just like the body, when left undressed the soul is vulnerable to, and ill-prepared for, the harshness of the external world.

Day 153

Affirmation:

I am not separate from the Divine.

I am infinitely and eternally connected to and a part of *All that IS*.

         _____________

The force of  *All that IS* runs through the heart and breath, spirit and soul, consciousness and existence, of every living thing, including you.   It is that very force,  that genesis spark, that presence and essence, that has animated you and given you to yourself to experience.  You can not be separate from that which is everywhere, everything, and everyone.    Feeling separate  is an illusion created in the shadows.   But if you turn on your heart and  feel love, there you’ll find *IT*, where *IT* has always been and always will be.

Day 95

Affirmation:

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.

Day 53

Affirmation:

I trust and listen to my inner guidance.

My inner guidance always works for my highest potential and from love.

                      _________

It can be called God, Guardian Angel, Higher Self, Spirit Guide, intuition, knowing, sixth sense, or gut feeling.  Sometimes that guidance comes as nudge, a sign, a voice, a feeling, or an instinct.  Whatever we call it and however it manifests, everyone has their own inner guidance.  It can be hard to trust that inner wisdom when it speaks but with time and trust, one can learn to rely on it under any circumstances.  Inner guidance is always loving and never encourages any choice that would cause harm to the self or others.  Inner guidance may not always be logical but it always turns out to be in our best interest.  Inner guidance is not from the ego, it is from the soul. Again, inner guidance never does anything but promote that which is good, loving, and in harmony with the Divine.   I commit to relying on my inner guidance to help me make decisions and pursue my life’s highest expression.    I will trust my inner guidance, more and more each day, realizing that it will never lead me astray.

Affirmation:

This is MY one life and I came here to LIVE  it.
I start today!

                                               _______________________

Our souls may have many incarnations but we  have only this lifetime..  Never again will my cells form to make this unique person I am.  Never again will I experience what I experience in this life.  Only in this journey will I have the gifts, dreams, passions, and purpose I do and only in this journey can I create, express and share them.   This is it.. the one and only time I will be this amazing version of my self.   What am I waiting for?

Day 12

Affirmation:

I am abundantly blessed.

I see the blessings of life all around me and I am grateful for every one.

                 __________________

Everywhere I look I witness the blessings of my existence.  From waking in the warmth of a bed to stepping first foot on cold flooring …  From crows bellowing and hummingbirds chirping in morse  to tea kettles, timers and doorbells  …  From a newly erupted lawn flower to a barren birch…  From snapshot memories of a child, a soldier, and a family to the heartbeat rhythm of my love…  From  the feet on which I stand to the bike I pedal and the car I drive…  From the fingertips that gently tap out this message to the voice that sings aloud and off-key…  From capitalism and democracy to the dream of social harmony… From miracles, magic and mystery to the mundane they create… From light to shadows and back to light…  From consciousness, questioning and clarity to daydreams and stillness… From rain drops and gum drops to tear drops…  From a single torn page of a coloring book to the entirety of Anna Karenina… From touch, tenderness and connection to solitude and space… From struggle and sorrow to surviving and thriving.  From cell phones to cellular memory… From here to eternity and back again… Everywhere I look I witness the blessings of my existence and I am humbled and I am grateful.

Day 4

Affirmation:

I live in abundant health and vitality.

I am strong and energetic.

I can see my body, its organs, tissues and cells, bathed in Divine and healing Light at all times.

I feel my body daily rejuvenated.

My body is a vehicle of Divine creation and I treat it with honour and respect.

                             ___________________________________

Whether I am in perfect health at this moment or not makes no difference.  What is important is that my attention be on what I desire, my preferred state.   By continually affirming health, healing, and strength I am channeling the energy of  Divine perfection to every part of my body, via the unlimited power of my own consciousness.    Serving my body well with my actions is also essential.   Intervention and good care are vital and my choices should reflect and promote my preferred state.  

When my mind and it’s assertion of health are working in harmony with deliberate action to promote the same, I am creating the ideal circumstances for the attainment of my preferred state.
