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.

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.

Words To Consider

Best Affirmations for Guidance

In this post, I want to talk about affirmations for guidance. The times they are a changing. During this period of uncertainty, many of us are seeking reliable ways to receive guidance and direction in our lives. But with our familiar signposts in chaos and turmoil, there is only one certain way to obtain the guidance we seek—go within.

 In seeking guidance, you are really asking the universe to “show you the way.” A lovely way to request this direction is to affirm , “I want to do what God wants me to do” This statement will cause your higher wisdom to communicate its intention to you. Then, your task is simple—listen to and follow its instructions.

 Sometimes what you receive will not always be what you (your ego) wanted to hear. Don’t let this bother you; your intuition, not your ego, knows what’s best for you. Many times, your instructions will not “make sense” at the time. Again, don’t be concerned; your intuition doesn’t function through logic, but through what “feels” right.

 When you receive guidance, you will probably be told to take a single step. Rather than being shown the final out-come, you will be guided each step along the way. This is where you must exercise your faith. Trust that you are being lead in the right direction and that everything will work out. The universe wants you to succeed. The universe wants the best for you.

 As you follow this procedure, your guidance will become clearer and more defined. While the outer world continues to rock to and fro, you will retain that inner calm and security that comes from following that Higher Power within you.

Words To Consider

“Instead of asking Him to give  the things for which we pray,
All that we need to ask from God is this:
Show us the way.”
