It is more difficult for some than others to loose the thoughts
of the past and the memories of days gone by and the
experiences, both good and bad, that have been a part of our
life. Yet, we know in our heart of hearts that no matter how
much or how little good we have experienced in the past, today
is the day that is most important to us and we will lose the
treasure of time if we do not make the most out of each day.
Refreshing our mind to a renewing of what we know is the spirit
in which we can realize success and prosperity, joy, happiness
and loving companionship is possible for each and every one of
us. Say to yourself, "I create new
heavens and a new earth and the former things shall not be
remembered or come into my mind" ... how do these words
make you feel? Perhaps you feel nothing? Perhaps it is because
you do not fully understand the words; heavens symbolizes ideas,
opportunities, potentialities, and earth symbolizes new
conditions, new circumstances, new success, increased
prosperity. Change the words so that they mean something to
you; i.e. "I create new ideas and
opportunities that provide for me an increased prosperity and
success in all that I do as I loose the former things from my
mind and my memory" ... and realize that this "I" is
eternally a part of the "infinite I" and connects us to the
Power, Spirit and Intelligence of the Source of Life, G-d ...
and to all Living things.
Let's affirm this with faith and conviction:
I believe and I receive.
with a deep, inward calm that my word of faith is responded to
in the affirmative.
know that my word penetrates any and every unbelief in my
thought; it casts out fear, removes doubts, and permits that
which I desire to experience to be made manifest in the right
and perfect time.
have complete conviction that my prayers will be carried out in
my experience with mathematical certainty.
have absolute reliance upon the Law of Good, which is the Law of
know that as I keep faith with these words, everything works for
believe and I receive.
And So It Is! Amen.
As we work with affirmations changing the words
and getting "into the spirit of it" we will find a shift in our
thoughts and a confidence that we may never have had before. As
we speak to our good, think to our good, G-d Intelligence begins
to correspond to what we are believing to be true for us. As we
read in the ancient scriptures Psalm 37:4
"Delight in the Lord (power of your mind) and you will receive
the desires of your heart"
... and this is pure spiritual Principle.
We can use affirmations, prayer, meditation, contemplation
and reflection, to sow into the Intelligence/Mind of Spirit that
which we desire to experience and the Power of the Spirit
receives the "impress of our thought" and corresponds to it.
Let us refresh our mind and renew our consciousness of faith and
power and belief and thoughts to conform to this spiritual law
that provides for us the good desires of our heart.
Keep the Faith!
