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.

2. I want to do what my Higher Self wants me to do. 

3. The Divine Presence fills my body, mind, heart and soul. From this place of higher knowing, I see all things clearly.

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.”

James Bowman

 

The Lord is nigh to all who call upon him, to all who call upon him in truth.

Psalm 145:18

 

Best Affirmations for Following Your Heart

Consider the following story of misplaced priorities. While hiking in the wilderness, I met a man whose T-shirt carried the following message: “He who dies with the most toys, wins.”

As I pondered those words, I was sure that the author meant the opposite of what he said. No one on his death bed ever stated, “I wish I had spent more time at the office.” We were put on this earth not to accumulate “toys,” but to reap the gifts of the spirit.  These gifts come to us when we dedicate our lives to something greater than ourselves-a path of service in the world, the raising of a loving family, the creation of beauty through art, or any passion that inspires one. 

Having lived in this manner, you can look back over your  life with a real sense of fulfillment. By following the path of peace, love and joy, you will discover your true treasure-one that transcends death itself. 

 He who dies, having followed his heart, wins.

Affirmations for Following Your Heart

1. Joy is my compass. 

2. As I follow the path of my heart, I discover  my true treasure.

3. I release my unnecessary attachments to people, things, or situations in the world.

4. My spiritual growth is  my top priority.

5. When I am being true to the highest and best in me, the rest of my life falls into place.

6. Create our own 

Words To Consider

“Lay not up for yourselves treasures on earth
where moth and dust doth corrupt,
where thieves break through and steal; 
but lay up treasures in heaven …
 for where your treasure is,
there will be your heart also.”

Matthew 6:19-21

Creative Visualization Contributes to Gold Medal

 The technique of creative visualization and affirmations are closely related. One might even call them fraternal twins. While affirmations work by repeating the spoken word, creative visualization works by creating pictures in the mind that reflect the outcome that one is seeking.

Creative visualization is a technique that is employed by elite athletes in many sports. Recently, the technique was used in the 2014 Winter Olympics by coach Brian Orser, who coached figure skater Yuzuru Hanu of Japan to a gold medal in figure skating.

In an interview in the Toronto Star,  Orser said, “I’ve been visualizing my two skaters on the podium.  At 11:11am every day I close my eyes and I visualize that. I’ve been doing after two months.”

Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve. Whether it is affirming your good or visualizing it coming to pass, affirmations and creative visualization are wonderful tools to help you turn your dreams into a reality.
