An attitude of gratitude enriches my body, mind and spirit.
Best affirmations for Inner Peace
Here are two affirmations for inner peace that I have found very helpful:
” I enfold myself and all beings in peace and serenity.”
“Peace of mind is my only goal.” This comes from the book A Course in Miracles.
Best Affirmations for Abundance
God is my instant, constant and abundant source of supply. Thank you sprit!
Look out to the natural world that surrounds you—the bountiful earth, the vast oceans, the expansive sky, the infinity of stars. You live in an abundant universe.
Where does this abundance come from? It comes from the creative power that formed the universe—from God, Infinite intelligence, Divine spirit. The awareness of this Infinite intelligence as it exists within you, is the key to experiencing abundance in your personal life. Since your connection to this Source is unlimited, your potential supply is also unlimited.
The main factor that limits your supply is how much you think you deserve. A lack of prosperity in your life merely reflects your limiting beliefs about what is possible. Open yourself to the abundance that is rightfully yours.
Perhaps you believe in a world of scarcity—that there is only so much to go around. “If I have more, others will have less,” you think. But the physical world manifests from creative thought, and since creative thought is limitless, so is the potential supply—for you and for everyone else.
The pleasures of the physical world are yours to enjoy, as long as you don’t make them your master. Place your spiritual development as your first priority, and whatever you need to complete the journey will come to you.
1. I believe in God as the Source of my infinite supply, which manifests through my life as abundance and prosperity on all levels.
2. God in me is my unlimited and overflowing supply of every kind of good.
3. I have more than I need, and so I share with my world.
4. My prosperity contributes to the prosperity and well being of others.
5. The universe provides for my every want and need.
““The only thing you will take through those pearly gates is what you’ve given away.”
Growth Through Pain
One of the most important spiritual lessons I have learned is growth through pain. While the fruits of the spiritual life are joy, love, peace, and harmony, one must also face tests and challenges, and overcome inner and outer temptations. How else can we develop our spiritual muscles unless we have to use them? As you have no doubt heard it repeated, no pain, no gain.
Pain is a marvelous feedback mechanism provided by the universe. Pain tells you that something is out of balance in your life, and that you must make the necessary changes to restore that balance.
Pain also helps you to develop a closer relationship with God. They say in Alcoholics Anonymous that one has to hit rock bottom before he or she is ready be helped. It is the same for you. In times of despair, when you realize that your own efforts can no longer sustain you, you become open to asking for help from that higher power. And it is in these moments that you can hear the inner voice responding, “I am here to help.”
Now think back to the times in your life that were the most painful, the most difficult. Recall those moments when you suffered or lost the most. Consider what you learned from these occurrences; evaluate the growth that you experienced. Are you not a more compassionate, wise and understanding person as a result of what you went through?
Compare this to a time when all was going well, when your feelings of pain were at a minimum. Which of the experiences produced the greater growth and transformation in your life?
Invariably it will be the “painful situation” that has truly blessed you, that has opened your heart and made you a more loving human being.
1. I thank the universe for providing me with opportunities to grow and to transform.
2. A broken heart is an open heart: my heart has been opened by my pain.
3. I am a stronger and wiser person because of my tests and challenges.
4. Better the pain, than to remain the same.
5. I see all problems as disguised opportunities
Words to Consider
“The depth of darkness to which you can descend and still live
is an exact measure of the height to which you can aspire to reach.”
