May I know who I am and what I am, every moment of every day.
I hold onto my intent, not the facts.
Time, breath and thought stop and start together.
Believing is seeing.
My awareness defines my journey.
Don’t believe everything you think!
It is not your job to control which thoughts you have in the moment, only to wisely direct them as they appear.
I am dying at every moment so that I can keep creating myself.
You are the one you’ve been waiting for.
I plant the seed in my mind to take root in my heart.
All my thoughts are creative.
I assume the power, not just the responsibility for my life.
It doesn’t have to look a certain way before Love is present.
Attention is fuel to the fires of the mind.
Compassion makes life meaningful, and is the source of all lasting happiness and joy.
Forgiveness frees one to live in the Eternal Now.
Love is source and supply.
Enjoy expectancy beyond expectations.
I B-R-E-A-T-H-E deeply and slowly.
My intent is to bless and be blessed.
I mind my mind.
As above, so below. As within, so without.
Allow resonance with the consciousness of Love.
Dare to be conscious in all you do.
Be a pioneer of possibility
Embrace change and bear witness to your spiritual evolution.
Only light can dispel the darkness.
Welcome an attitude of gratitude.
You are a blessing and a healing influence on this world.
Allow infinate supply, well being and joy.
In this very breath, I accept peace.
Love is always speaking, if you listen…
Allow goodness to be your deepest intent.
Fear (False Evidence Appearing Real)
Listen to the silence.
Have courage to live your vision
Infinite possibilities are available in every moment.
Enjoy giving expression to your creative potential.
Within us is always that Peace which is forever listening and open-minded.
May your joys be as deep as the ocean, your sorrows as light as it’s foam.
Your consciousness creates your universe.
I feed my subconscious positive thoughts daily
Align with grace and ease
