Thank You Veterans
I appreciate and say thank you to our veterans ...
To express gratitude for the power of Spirit manifesting good in my life.
Here I sit with sunshine streaming through the window... and thoughts streaming through my mind ... war, civil liberties, family... I breathe deeply and let it go ... I breathe deeply and let the thoughts go ... I breathe deeply and accept the inspiration of Spirit into the stream of consciousness ... I breathe deeply and relax into the flow ... I breathe deeply again and again ...
Settling into this gentle rhythm ... I allow the words to come easily and naturally ...
There is one power, one presence, one creative force in this universe; I feel it in me now, I see it all around me now. The intelligence behind the breath, the force behind the sunlight, the source of consciousness is that which we call by many names: God, Great Spirit, the Thing Itself, Allah, Jehovah, Nature ...
I take this time now to tune into this Intelligence as it manifests in me, as me now. I know I am one with this Source now and always, and that my life flows forward with It as my guide. I take this time to listen to Its special message for me, now. And as I transcribe this message, I know it is for each of us in the Oneness of life, of creation, of being that we share.
I accept this inspiration as Spirit's gift today. I accept the power it brings into my life to face the demons that arise to block my way. I accept the power of Love to move us through all obstacles to our birthright of peace, joy, beauty, power. I accept the natural abundance of Spirit into my life now and always, in all forms: material, spiritual, emotional.
I give thanks for the gift of human life. I give thanks for the gift of consciousness. I give thanks for the ability to be self conscious. I give thanks for the ability to cocreate my life with Spirit. I give thanks for the people and beings around me that are active in my life. I give thanks for my emotions and feelings that enrich my life. I give thanks for the beauty I find in myself and all around me. I give thanks for those that have gone before leaving their gifts of love for us. I give thanks for knowing the unstoppable power of love to heal all things and bring us into divine harmony when all is said and done.
Today I give special thanks to all those that serve and have served in the Armed Forces, putting themselves in harm's way, in faith believing, to preserve for us all that I am thankful for today.
As I release these words, these thoughts, these feelings into the creative process, into the flow of life, into the outpicturing from the source, I take special care to honor myself and my loved ones for perseverance in pursuing the goal of happiness, for in truth we are one and reach the goal together. And so I let it be.
Blessed are We
(Use the affirmations above to remind yourself of your truth throughout the day. And, remember, you are free to use your own words in the prayer to claim that which YOU most desire. This is written to read silently or aloud as your own, slowly, peacefully, passionately; feel it with your body, your mind and your inborn Spirit; share it with a friend. The more you feel, in yourself, the truth you put in the prayer, the more you experience that truth in life.)
