One of my favorite affirmations is “When one door closes, another door opens.” I love this affirmation so much, thatI used it as the title for my first meditation in the book Words That Heal. Here is the meditation in it’s entirety, along with the healing affirmations that accompany it.

When One Door Closes, Another Door Opens
When one door closes, another door opens. Patience, perseverance and persistence.
There comes a time along the spiritual journey when something we cherish must come to an end. Perhaps a meaningful relationship is terminated. Perhaps some opportunity we sought suddenly becomes unavailable. Whatever the circumstances, we feel shut out from a good that we desired.
When this occurs, do not despair, for the Infinite has not forgotten you. You have experienced loss for one reason and one reason only—so that you may receive an even greater good.
Nature abhors a vacuum. What is true in the physical world has its parallel in the spiritual world. You can’t release something without gaining something in return. The universe longs to fill your void, replacing sadness with joy, loss with gain, death with rebirth.
What then is your task when a door is closed before you? First, release your attachment to the way it was, or the way you wished it to be. Your Higher self has prepared a far greater gift for you. Then affirm to yourself, “When one door closes another door opens. I expectantly look forward to the good that awaits me.”
Be patient, for it will come in the twinkling of an eye.
1. I release the past and eagerly look toward the good that awaits me.
2. I release my prior expectations and eagerly look toward the good that awaits me.
3. I have faith that I will be guided to my next step.
4. Although I grieve for what I lost, I have faith that a greater good lies before me.
5. A new door in my life stands open before me.
6. Your own
Words To Consider
They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
