Yes to Freedom!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Simply yes. Yes to freedom. When you keep your attention on
what you desire, less attention or energy is given to those
things that you do not desire. While you are evolving your
awareness, you might from time to time say "no" to
non-freedom, however, as your consciousness continues to
lift, saying no becomes less and less necessary because more
of what you want will be coming to you. With millions of
answers and possibilities, your job is to recognize the
situations that are good for you, the ones you want to say
"yes" to. It is sometimes interesting to know what others
find helpful, what others say "yes" to, yet you are
responsible for creating your experiences through the
thoughts and ideas to which you personally say "yes."

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
So, to what will you say "yes" today? Will you say "yes" to
freedom? Consider the many yeses that lead you to true
freedom. Every decision is a choice. Do not fall victim to
the erroneous and currently-popular belief that "I am
supposed to say 'yes' to everything that comes to me."
Instead, know that you are to discern whether those things
that come to you are the things that you desire, and say yes
to them. You will know those things by their resonance.
You have a particular resonance. Freedom has a particular
resonance. Every thing has a resonance. Do you know when
to say "yes, this is for me"? When you truly know this,
saying "no" is rarely necessary because your attention is
mainly on those things to which you have already said yes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Make this a courageous week-plus!

Greetings on the 4th week of October with the theme of Freedom. During this fourth week we focus on Acting/Claiming Affirmations, and the last days of the month we focus on Integrating/Embodying Affirmations.

ABOUT ACTING/CLAIMING AFFIRMATIONS and FREEDOM
 It is natural to associate freedom (or lack of freedom) with actions -- our own and others'. You can measure your level of freedom or your perception of your level of freedom by the things you do and say. During this week, you have the opportunity to decide what actions to take so that you can claim your freedom. These can be little acts, tiny steps; or these can be bigger acts, stronger steps. You do not need to push beyond your comfort level OR you may decide that the encouragement of this week's affirmations allows you to be courageous beyond your imagination. Act in the name of pure freedom. Act in the consciousness of freedom.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS What is the one act that symbolizes freedom for you? Perhaps it is an act that you see portrayed in a film or acted out by a neighbor or demonstrated by a friend. Perhaps it is an act you have hoped you will someday have the courage to take. Perhaps you consider it big; perhaps, little. Perhaps it is not an action in the conventional sense of the word. As you identify this act or non-act, also identify a symbol that you can easily remember: a circle or triangle, a flower or tree, a name or face, a phrase or word, a sound or song. Experience this symbol as you reflect on the act of freedom. Any time you feel restricted or limited, connect with the symbol and feel freedom come into your consciousness.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week to represent being and intending for freedom, I would choose the affirmation for October 23: "I act with freedom in my heart. I speak with freedom on my lips. I walk with freedom in my feet." For me, this affirmation demands alignment on all levels, especially heart, speech, and actions. Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or some combination. You will receive each of these affirmations on the appropriate days with additional information and suggestions. Make your process work for you.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
October 22: Freedom energizes my actions. I step out in freedom.
October 23: I act with freedom in my heart. I speak with freedom on my lips. I walk with freedom in my feet. October 24: I claim my freedom. Today, I claim my power.
October 25: I manifest all things in association with freedom. I am the creator of my experiences.
October 26: I draw a circle of freedom around me. I fill the circle with love and light.
October 27: I let every act be an act of freedom.
October 28: I act with purposeful awareness of freedom. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ABOUT INTEGRATING/EMBODYING AFFIRMATIONS and FREEDOM These affirmations help you to take time to incorporate the energy and concepts of freedom into your life. Reflect upon, meditate with, and sort out ideas about freedom. Those ideas that fit, keep and embody. Those ideas that do not fit, reject or put aside knowing they will return if needed at a later time. Exercise your free will in all parts of your life, including this DailyAffirm Process. ABOUT YOUR PROCESS As you reflect upon the last four weeks, what did you find the most meaningful? In addition to learning about freedom, what else have you learned? What do you want to release? What do you want to keep? What more do you wish to know about freedom? How can you experience what you desire to  know? Here are the affirmations for the remaining days of the month:
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
October 29: Yes to Freedom!
October 30: I integrate freedom into every aspect of life.
October 31: Today is an opportunity for freedom.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Make this a profound week!

Greetings on the 3rd week of October with the theme of
Freedom. During this third week we focus on Being/Intending
Affirmations.
Remind yourself of your over-arching intention for freedom.

ABOUT BEING/INTENDING AFFIRMATIONS and FREEDOM
This week's affirmations help you to understand youself and
freedom more deeply. To remember who you truly are is a
profoundly powerful experience. As a spiritual being, you
are free beyond what your ordinary human understanding can
comprehend. You can explore spiritual freedom through any
and all aspects of your life -- where you feel free or
enslaved, confused or uplifted, resistant or ready,
empowered or depressed. Every situation is an opportunity
to know freedom.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Do you believe that you are free? How are you free?
Identify a specific area in your life where you experience
freedom. Take five minutes or so to write about that
freedom: what freedom itself feels like, how you feel, what
you notice. Perhaps you feel all glowy or giddy, perhaps
you feel strong or powerful. Notice and describe the
sensations as precisely as you can. Involve as many senses
and thoughts and feelings as possible in your description.
Then reduce your description to a few words that represent
this whole picture. Perhaps you call this your "Freedom
Place" or "Both feet on the ground" or "In the eye of the
storm." Post these words on your computer or a mirror or
your desk drawer. Then, any time that you feel burdened,
restricted, limited, oppressed, depressed, or otherwise not
free, remind yourself of your "Freedom Place."

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for this week
to represent being and intending for Freedom it would be the
affirmation for October 19: "I remember freedom. I remember
who I Am. I am free." Each sentence has a slightly
different rhythm; the sentences together help you to deepen
your relationship to freedom.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

October 15:
I know that freedom leads to the highest good for all.

October 16:
I deepen my awareness of the consciousness of freedom, from
which my empowering actions spring.

October 17:
High intention operates in the midst of freedom. Freedom
operates in the midst of high intention.

October 18:
My mission is to bring freedom to my world joyously. I
hold an intention to embody freedom.

October 19:
I remember freedom. I remember who I Am. I am free.

October 20:
I understand the meaning of freedom for me and allow others
to define freedom for themselves.

October 21:
Freedom and empowerment enhance all my thoughts and
feelings.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Make this a quality week!

Greetings on the 2nd week of October with the theme of
Freedom. During this second week we focus on Receiving/
Accepting Affirmations.
Remind yourself of your over-arching intention for freedom.

ABOUT RECEIVING/ACCEPTING AFFIRMATIONS and FREEDOM
The purpose of Receiving/Accepting Affirmations is to open yourself for something to be or to happen. They allow you to experience freedom, perhaps in a way you have not done so before. They can also neutralize the misqualification of energy; that is, they can eliminate the bondage of illness, erase the restrictions of limited thinking, and reverse other misuse of energy. In addition, this week's affirmations help shift the attention from disempowering actions such as "getting" or "taking" to more freeing actions such as, "receiving" and "allowing" and "being" and "accepting." Relax into the power of acceptance.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
If you have felt unfree in a particular way or in a particular area of your life, you may find that you want to put your attention initially this week on an area in which you already feel free. Or perhaps focus on a specific event in which you felt free. This opens you to appreciate the feeling or essence of freedom -- imagine the feeling, remember this, feel this, see this, etc. Notice the dynamics of freedom. Touch and appreciate freedom.
Then...... acknowledge that you have created this experience.
Then..... shift your attention to an area in which you wish
to experience similar feelings of freedom. Carefully bring in all the dynamics you remember from the other experience. Oops, don't drop the feelings by letting your head tell you these are two different situations. Stay with the feelings you have created that tell you that you are/were free. Repeat this exercise until you can more easily accept the feelings of freedom regardless of the situation.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week to represent receiving and accepting for Freedom it would be the affirmation for the first day (October 8): "I open to allow freedom to operate in my life. I shift my attention from 'freedom from' to 'freedom to.'" I love this affirmation because I have found repeatedly that many persons feel that they are locked into something or someone, or restricted from doing something. People often want to get "free from" something. This, indeed, may be a worthy goal. However, once "freed from" something or someone you usually re-create a similar bondage with another person or thing. On the other hand, "freedom to" opens a wider scope of possibilities in which to experience freedom.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or some combination. You will receive each of these affirmations on the appropriate days with additional information and suggestions. Make your process work for you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

October 8:
I open to allow freedom to operate in my life. I shift my attention from "freedom from" to "freedom to."

October 9:
I receive goodness and freedom from the Universe. I let the truth shine through appearances.

October 10:
I allow freedom to open a pathway and to flow through me.

October 11:
Dear God, allow me to see freedom in a way that I can understand.

October 12:
Freedom, you are my friend. I receive this friendship with love and compassion.

October 13:
I accept freedom in all aspects of my life. I accept freedom in all aspects of your life. We are all free.

October 14:
I am ready right now to live in freedom and gratitude.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
I have seen tears come to the eyes of many persons when I
have revealed the "vows of limitation" affirmation. This
affirmation is useful because human beings have put
limitations on themselves and others. While perhaps well-
intentioned, these vows have been used to limit the freedom
of not only the person who originally spoke them but also
passed to the generations that follow. Religious and marital
vows are often made for "all eternity," which is a very long
time; others were made "until death do us part," which is a
difficult concept to define. When you are dying in a
marriage, for example, how does that relate to a physical
death? And when a beloved spouse leaves the physical body
(called "death" in our culture), does that end the
relationship? Vows of a less ceremonial nature may sound
like, "I'll never speak to you again." Or, "I'll get you
for that." Or, "I'll always be yours." Or, "I promise to
keep this secret forever."

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Without over-analyzing your life, I suggest that you review
some of the vows you may have made that seem outdated. For
example, you may have told someone "I'll get back at you for
that!" Such a statement works in several ways: You can,
indeed, "get back at" someone, and you may also open
yourself to invite others to "get back at" you. You may
find that you often feel revengeful, or that others often
feel revengeful toward you, or you may have back problems!
Just select one statement of this nature that is relevant
for you and explore various aspects of it, without getting
obsessed by figuring it all out. A little of this goes a
long way.

Make this a clear day!

Greetings on the 1st day of October with the theme of
Freedom. This is a Releasing/Cleansing Affirmation in the
first week of the month.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I give myself permission to release bondage and oppression
from every level of the energy field. I turn my attention
to freedom.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


Make this a wondrous week!

Greetings on the 1st week of October with the theme of
Freedom. During this first week we focus on Releasing/
Cleansing Affirmations.

ABOUT YOUR INTENTION
If you have not already done so, please identify your over-
arching intention for Freedom. That is, develop a statement
that guides you in the exploration and embodiment of freedom.
Intention is the energy or consciousness from which actions
emerge. If you are uncertain how to write this intention,
just make an attempt. Keep it simple. You have 31 days to
work with the intention and the theme, so let your statement
change and deepen. Here are a few suggestions for
statements of intention about the theme of Freedom: *To
realize freedom on all levels of my being. *To know that I
am free; to know that I am me. *To embody freedom in every
aspect of my life. *To live each moment free and freely.

ABOUT RELEASING/CLEANSING AFFIRMATIONS and FREEDOM
The affirmations this week aid you in internal housecleaning
-- clearing away the thoughts, beliefs, and feelings related
to non-freedom and anti-freedom. Most individuals have had
experiences of freedom and non-freedom, yet the collective
experiences are varied. This week, cleanse, release,
forgive, and free yourself of dynamics of non-freedom. While
true freedom is an internal process, it is often helpful to
look at how you relate to your freedom in certain situations
or with respect to certain ideas. As you use these
situations for your learning, it is important that you not
give your power away to them. You want to gently release
resistance, not increase resistance.

There is a myriad of ways that foster feeling free or not
free: gender, race, skin tone, age, politics, culture,
class, educational level, religion and religious practices,
names, language, accent, national origin, speaking/speech,
intelligence, physical ability, physical appearance,
procreation, gathering/assembly, learning/academia, and
relationships (especially contractual relationships), such
as marriage, job, housing, banking, purchases. Well, this
is quite a list, and surely I have omitted some.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you proceed through this week, you may choose to select
one or more areas in which you wish to focus for your
exploration of freedom. While your statement of intention
is ideally broad enough to serve as an umbrella over every
aspect of your life, a focus on a specific area or
relationship may assist you in making all the ideas
practical and relevant.

I recommend that you write this week's affirmation(s), if
such an exercise appeals to you. I have developed a process
which is described in the book, "Affirmations: A Pathway to
Transformation" and in an article entitled, "Writing
Affirmations for Empowerment." You may request this and our
other articles by following the instructions below.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent releasing and cleansing for Freedom it would be
the affirmation for October 3: "I let go of everything that
blocks freedom. Angels assist in the removal of blockages."
Sometimes folks get upset when they do not understand what
they are releasing, which simply ADDS to the blockages. So
this affirmation says it all: we release EVERYTHING THAT
BLOCKS FREEDOM. Everything. It doesn't matter its origin
or color or location or vibration or level or label or sound
or gender. If it blocks freedom, it is to be released.
Give it no more attention than this, then focus on freedom.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

October 1:
I give myself permission to release bondage and oppression
from every level of the energy field. I turn my attention
to freedom.

I let Spirit (My Higher Self, God, My Spirit Guides, The
One, The Force, Infinite Source) purify any remaining
thoughts and feelings of bondage or inadequacy.

Make this a dynamic week-plus!

Greetings on the 4th week of September with the theme of
Abundance. During this fourth week we focus on Acting/
Claiming Affirmations, and the last days of the month we
focus on Integrating/Embodying Affirmations. Make this a
dynamic week-plus!

DailyAffirm began Twelve Years Ago this Month!

ABOUT ACTING/CLAIMING AFFIRMATIONS and ABUNDANCE
During this month so far, DailyAffirm has used affirmations
to dump non-abundance, to clarify and open to abundance, and
to define and resonate with abundance. Now, you get to act.
To claim. To manifest. To do. Although you must be clear
that money and abundance are not the same, you also need to
recognize that your relationship with money can assist you
in resonating with the energy of abundance. Indeed, you can
use anything to learn this; however, I choose money because
so many folks are struggling with money (or more accurately,
struggling without money). Many people claim to be focused
on money or abundance, yet in reality they are focused on
the lack of money because of their belief in scarcity. It
is important to recognize that you have created and attracted
the situations in which you find yourself; if your situations
or conditions are unsatisfactory, you can move yourself out
of them simply by thinking and feeling more positively, more
often.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Consider what action or actions symbolize the epitome of
abundance for you. Let your imagination run wild. Perhaps
your image is flying without an airplane, or traveling all
over the world, or hiring a full time cook and housekeepers
for your elegant home, or climbing to the top of a mountain.
This is YOUR picture, please do not feel limited by my simple
suggestions. Write a description or draw a picture of this
action. Over the next seven days, take at least three more
actions related to manifesting this idea of abundance in
your life. (Note: to write or draw a picture is an action.)

ABOUT ADDITIONAL OPTIONS TO SUPPORT YOU THIS WEEK
I will be giving lots of ideas about strategies for money,
prosperity, and abundance in the daily messages of the
DailyAffirm List over the next seven days. I will talk
about how to tithe, explain how to magnetize the energy
field, and other surprises. If you ordinarily only read
the weekly overview message, perhaps this is a good week
to read the daily messages as well.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent acting and claiming for abundance it would be
"I manifest from abundance. With the consciousness of
abundance, I give. With the consciousness of abundance, I
receive." This is the affirmation for September 25. So
many people begrudgingly give, yet expect to receive all the
gifts of the Universe. Some people get angry about having
to pay their light bill, yet light is precisely what you are
bringing into the planet.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

September 22:
Abundance energizes my actions as I step firmly on the path.

September 23:
I act with abundance in my heart. I speak with abundance on
my lips. I walk with abundance in my feet.

abundance, I give. With the consciousness of abundance, I

September 27:
I let every act be an act of abundance.

September 28:

thanks to my Source of abundance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT INTEGRATING/EMBODYING AFFIRMATIONS and ABUNDANCE
We only have two days this month to integrate and embody the
idea of abundance. We take these two days to reflect over
the preceding four weeks. We breathe in abundance and
breathe out non-abundance. We see abundance in every single
opportunity, every moment, everyone. We merge with the
energy of abundance.

Make this a magnificent week!

Greetings on the 3rd week of September with the theme of
Abundance. During this third week we focus on Being/
Intending Affirmations. Make this a magnificent week!

DailyAffirm began Twelve Years Ago this Month!

Read DailyAfirm on the Internet, with links to resources.
You can also make comments at http://www.dailyaffirm.com

Remind yourself of your over-arching intention for abundance.
Deepen or change it, if appropriate.

ABOUT BEING/INTENDING AFFIRMATIONS and ABUNDANCE
The affirmations this week open you to understand yourself
and help you to become more fully who you are while you
explore the deeper meaning of abundance and become at peace
with living in abundance. Abundance, as I am using the word
in this process, is spiritual abundance rather than opulence
or excess; abundance is the source and substance from which
things are manifested rather than money or other
manifestations themselves; abundance already exists in
infinite supply rather than a finite thing that is depleted
after it is used. When you focus on "things," you tend to
try to manipulate them; when you focus on the Spirit of
abundance, you become more satisfied with your experiences
in which those "things" that you need and desire come to
you. Abundance is.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
During this week, you may find it helpful to write a clear
definition of abundance for yourself. As you write it, if
you find that you are using physical things to describe
abundance, you are not defining abundance. Start again.
Abundance is NOT big houses and fancy cars and money and
jewels. Indeed, when you have money you have a right to
spend it however you wish. But having money is just having
money. Abundance is a spiritual energy FROM WHICH all
things are manifest INCLUDING big houses, money, etc., if
you choose. But do not limit your definition of abundance
to things. Open to a deeper definition as you allow the
meaning to emerge during this week.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent being and intending for Abundance, it would be
the affirmation for September 16: "I deepen my awareness of
the consciousness of abundance, from which my generous
actions spring." I consider this captures the essence of
this week's affirmations, perhaps even the whole month's
affirmations. It is your human consciousness that you want
to change, to uplift. You will do this differently from
others, and in your own time, yet the essence of the human
journey is to lift upward in consciousness. When you are
able to resonate with the consciousness of abundance, you
know, without doubt or regret or fear, that all your needs
are met.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

September 15:
I know that true abundance leads to the highest good for all.

September 16:
I deepen my awareness of the consciousness of abundance,
from which my generous actions spring.

September 17:
High intention operates in the midst of abundance.
Abundance operates in the midst of high intention.

September 18:
My mission is to bring the consciousness of abundance to my
world.

September 19:
I remember abundance. I remember who I Am. I am grateful.

September 20:
I understand the meaning of abundance. I no longer confuse
abundance with money. I appreciate both.

September 21:
Abundance and joy enhance all my thoughts and feelings.

I accept abundance in all aspects of my life. I shift my
attention from visible means of support to invisible means
of support.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Perhaps you say "Oh, yes, of course, I accept abundance (or
whatever)" and then the moment it shows up, you refuse,
resist, or miss it. You may not intend to, but your actions
or words or feelings are such that you cannot connect with
the manifestation of your heart's desires. It is easy to
have an idea in your head, for example, the idea to be free
or to love unconditionally or to live in abundance, yet be
challenged when trying to apply the idea to your everyday
lives.

In this society, there tends to be an over-emphasis on the
visible and under-emphasis on the invisible. If you believe
too much in the form, in the proof, in the facts, in history,
in time, when true abundance shows up, you may miss it
because it looks different from what you expected. All
manifestations in the visible world are created from the
invisible. When you stop trying to manipulate the visible
and trust the Infinite Invisible Source, everything in the
visible changes! The visible changes because your
consciousness changes, not because of tinkering with the
visible.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Today's affirmation reminds you to trust the invisible means
of support because that is the source of abundance. What
does it mean to you to trust the invisible means of support?
After considering your response to this question in a
general way, consider it also in a more specific way. That
is, get a feeling about trusting the invisible means of
support and then identify a specific situation in your life
in which you could use more awareness of the support from
Spirit, more awareness of abundance. Accept abundance into
that aspect of your life and then trust it when it shows up!

Abundance, you are my friend. I have said goodbye to lack.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
When you have said goodbye to someone or something, it might
come back to say "hello" again. This can be a pleasant
experience or not. So, say "goodbye" to Lack for good (get
it?). You do not lift in consciousness by being brutal to
that which you formerly revered or believed in, so be gentle
with Lack and with yourself as you say goodbye. Open a space
created by Lack's absence so that Abundance can show up in
your life as a presence, as a constant friend. You must be
vigilant, though, because Lack has been familiar and
ubiquitous. When you begin to experience Abundance you must
be careful not to worry or doubt or wonder if it is "too
good to be true" because these are engraved invitations for
lack to pay a visit.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
If Lack creeps back into your consciousness, deal with it in
the most effective and efficient way you know how. Or even
in an ineffective or inefficient way. Remember, you really
do not have to do this well, just do it! Explain the rules
to Lack. For example, you might say, "Go away, Lack, I have
finished my relationship with you." Or you may say, "OK,
you may stay, but just for two minutes. I have a date with
Abundance." Here are some indicators of ways you might be
entertaining Lack.

You invite Lack to visit when you
(1) Focus on how difficult a situation is or appears to be,
(2) Argue for limitations,
(3) Feel low self esteem,
(4) Criticize yourself; criticize others,
(5) Compare yourself to others and judge that one is better
than the other,
(6) Give your attention to what you do not want.
So, are you ready to say goodbye to lack for good?

I allow the energy of abundance to flow through me. I
recognize that giving and receiving are the same.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
When you open, you allow. Today, allow the energy of
abundance to come into your life. The recognition that
giving and receiving are the same is a powerful spiritual
concept. Those who resonate with "getting" and "taking," or
who only give grudgingly, or who believe that they have
given too much with nothing in return, might perceive the
sameness of giving and receiving as a strange idea. This
affirmation honors that energy flows freely in many
different directions in the absence of resistance. You must
give with an open heart as surely as you must receive with
an open heart.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Identify something you will give today and something you
will receive today. While the "something" you give need
not be precisely the same as the "something" you receive,
you will find this exercise more helpful if both
"somethings" are either tangible or intangible, pleasant or
unpleasant, desired or undesired, etc. When each of the two
"somethings" is given and received, be a witness to your own
process: How did/do you feel? How would you describe your
consciousness? How aware are you of the energy of abundance
and the energy of the "something"? What are the differences
and similarities of the two experiences? As you witness your
process, try not to be critical of yourself or the process.
Just notice. Open to the experience.

I receive goodness from the Universe. Abundance is
everywhere.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
It is interesting to me how often people forget how good the
goodness is, whether the goodness is visible or invisible.
Goodness is everywhere; abundance is everywhere. Sometimes
you have to lift up the dark stuff to notice the goodness
and abundance. You might think of the dark stuff as a tarp
(tarpaulin) or a blanket. With your mind's eye, lift up the
tarp or blanket to reveal the wonder and beauty and abundance.
The dark consciousness that has existed on the planet for a
long time is just a tarp. Many have believed that the tarp
is the truth or the totality because the tarp has done its
job well by covering up the goodness. It is time for us to
realize and accept abundance. Lift up the tarp. Lift up.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Today, whenever you perceive something that appears to you
as pain or confusion or discomfort of any kind, just think
of it as a tarp. And more specifically, think of it as a
tarp that has done its job well and is no longer needed.
Consider if you lay a tarp over your furniture while you
paint the ceiling. Do you continue to live with the tarp
on your furniture after the painting is complete? Of course
not. You lift it up, fold it, and store it for the next
job. It is not helpful for you to get angry at the tarp
because that just makes you feel heavier or more hopeless.
Instead, just lift up the tarp. If you need help, ask those
who know how to lift up this stuff. Better yet, give your
attention to positive aspects that you wish to experience.
Abundance is everywhere. Spirit is everywhere. The Divine
is omnipresent. Joy is ubiquitous.

I open to allow abundance to operate in my life. All my
needs are met, in time and on time.



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Your thoughts activate the creative force in the physical
plane. You need energy, though, and the energy of abundance
is available to operate these fleshy vehicles on this earth.
You manifest from Spirit. You manifest from Spirit by
aligning yourself with the divine and opening to allow the
Universe to respond. I do not advocate manipulation or
bargaining with God or taking from others. I advocate
lifting your consciousness so that you are aware that you
are manifesting from Spirit into the physical plane. These
manifestations are fast, easy, joyous, and realized with
integrity. You, who are here to bring the light into dark
places, find that this is very hard to do if you feel
hopelessly needy. When you feel needy, you absorb the light;
when you feel your needs are met, you radiate the light.
When you have unmet needs (and you always will), you can
radiate the light by trusting yourself to receive the flow
of the Universe in the only time that is: now.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
At first, you may have difficulty accepting the truth of
this affirmation. If so, here are two optional approaches
(1) Affirm it anyway (let it be an affirmation of trust).
Or (2) Affirm it and observe the feelings or thoughts or
other reactions you experience to the affirmation. Then
create an appropriate process or affirmation to deal with
the reactions. For example, if you have a disgruntled
reaction such as, "Yeah, sure, all my needs are met, I just
can't have any wants," you might return to the September 1
affirmation and affirm something like: "I give myself
permission to release disgust (or anger or victim
consciousness or resentment or hopelessness) from every
level of my energy field, easily and effortlessly." Or you
might simply give up to the angels any negative reactions to
today's affirmation, knowing they will carry off the
reactions joyously.

Make this a positive week!


Greetings on the 2nd week of September with the theme of
Abundance. During this second week we focus on Receiving/
Accepting Affirmations. Make this a positive week!

DailyAffirm began Twelve Years Ago this Month!

ABOUT RECEIVING/ACCEPTING AFFIRMATIONS and ABUNDANCE
To be able to RECEIVE abundance is perhaps the most
important concept related to our theme of abundance. While
I generally prefer to state what IS and often hesitate to
give too much attention to what is NOT, this seems to be a
time to explain the NOT-IT. Receiving abundance is NOT
grabbing something, NOT deflecting compliments, NOT feeling
guilty about having something that someone else does not
have, NOT saying "oh, you shouldn't have," NOT a lucky guess
/ opportunity / break, NOT available only to those who are
smart / rich / of a particular race or color / lucky / hard
working, NOT having lots of money, NOT manipulating to get
something. Phew! Lots of nots; lots of knots.

Receiving abundance runs parallel to the ability to trust
unconditionally that the Universe responds to all your needs.
You must receive the response. In other words, the sentiment
"I'll trust the Universe as long as that check shows up by
September 15, otherwise, forget it!" does not qualify as
unconditional trust. You must accept that you are in a
process of receiving abundance and that it comes in many
ways: through your own ingenuity, opening your eyes to the
majesty of the earth, appreciation from friends and
families, gifts, food that grows from the soil, creativity,
synergy of ideas.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
If you feel "hooked" on the belief that money and abundance
are synonymous, I suggest that you work with a process of
uplifting your gratitude to the true Source. Whenever
something you desire comes into your life, thank BOTH the
physical source and the Divine Source. One example: you
receive your paycheck on Friday afternoon: Thank your job
(or your boss or your skills) and then thank the Divine (or
God or The One or the angels or Spirit). Another example:
you see (your eyes receive) a beautiful oil painting: thank
the artist (or the art gallery or the artist's inspiration)
and then thank the Divine. Even though the Divine is First
Cause (and is truly the One to be thanked first), this
process trains you to shift from the physical form or
appearance to the true Source. Also, the Divine does not
need your appreciation: you are the one most fed when you
feel or express appreciation.

And if you do NOT feel hooked on the belief that money and
abundance are synonymous, bravo. You still have an
assignment (if you choose to accept it): Be a witness of
any example that indicates a call for abundance. Notice I
say "witness," NOT "judge" and NOT "reporter" and NOT
"teacher." When you witness the call for abundance, send
your thanks to the Source. Your gratitude need not have any
content, just loving energy. Sprinkle thanksgiving and love
wherever you place your attention, then see miracles
manifest.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent receiving and accepting for Abundance, I would
combine two affirmations: the one for September 13, "I
accept abundance in all aspects of my life. I shift my
attention from visible means of support to invisible means
of support" and for September 10, "I allow the energy of
abundance to flow through me. I recognize that giving and
receiving are the same." The married affirmation would be:
"I recognize that giving and receiving are the same, as I
shift my attention from visible means of support to
invisible means of support." These concepts are very
important as you continue to lift your consciousness about
abundance.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

September 8:

September 10:
I allow the energy of abundance to flow through me. I

September 11:
Dear God, allow me to embrace and experience abundance in
every aspect of my life.

September 12:
Abundance, you are my friend. I have said good bye to lack.

September 13:
I accept abundance in all aspects of my life. I shift my
attention from visible means of support to invisible means
of support.

September 14:
I am ready right now to live joyously in abundance.

I let Spirit (My Higher Self, God, My Spirit Guides, The
One, The Force, Infinite Source) purify any remaining
thoughts and feelings of limitation and poverty.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
On this last day of the Releasing/Cleansing Affirmations,
trust Spirit to handle anything that you might have missed.
Since you may have become so familiar with your limitations
that you accept them as truth, surrender now to Spirit to
handle the remains. Call higher power by whatever name you
choose, or by all names that come to your awareness.
Release. Release the need to release. Align with Spirit to
raise your vibration. Put more trust in Spirit than in
thoughts and feelings of limitation.

I often conduct guided meditations about the energy of
abundance. Here is a small sample, which is designed to be
read aloud. A pause is indicated as "......" so that you
slow down generally and in particular at that place. This
pause is a perfect time to close your eyes. Another option
is to make a tape recording so that you can do this brief
guided meditation with your eyes closed.

You may also like to hear my meditations on MP3 files, which
you can do without charge at the Voice of Jeanie Marshall,
http://www.jmvoice.com

Go deep within ...... deep within. ...... If you notice
any distractions in your environment, remind yourself that
there is an inner world and an outer world. ...... Now is
a time to be focused on your inner world. ..... In this
inner place, ask for an image that represents abundance.
...... Allow yourself to breathe deeply, ...... breathing
in the light and breathing out anything unlike the light.
Breathe in your image of abundance. ...... Breathe out
darkness and release limitation. ...... Breathe in
universal energy and breathe out belief in lack. ......
Rest your attention on your image of abundance. ......
Return your attention to your breath and linger as long as
you choose in feelings of replenishment.

ABOUT OTHER GUIDED MEDITATIONS
I have written a longer guided meditation that is available
at my Web Site: "Creating and Manifesting: A Guided
Meditation." If you like the above very brief meditation,
you will enjoy reading a fuller version. In addition, we
offer two recorded meditations for online listening at

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
Tomorrow the very important Receiving/Accepting affirmations
for abundance begin. Today is a good day to cleanse your
home or office, to empty physical trash as well as emotional
or mental trash. After emptying out, you may find yourself
more receptive to accepting the abundance of the Universe.
You may also want to re-visit your over-arching intention
for abundance.


Make this a plentiful day!

I dissolve thoughts that suggest there is not enough. I end
preoccupation with money as the definition of abundance and
self-worth.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The belief in lack or "not enough" is so prevalent that even
persons who are otherwise spiritually awakened often step
into this belief by focusing on appearances and calling them
truth. Here are two truths to ponder: the universe provides
more than enough and you must align with Spirit (universal
energy, God source, infinite intelligence) to manifest what
you desire. A good way to align with Spirit is to close
your eyes. With your outer eyes closed to duality, you can
more easily see with the single (also called "third") eye of
Spirit.

With your physical eyes open, you tend to see the already-
manifested matter and believe (erroneously) that this is all
that exists and therefore must be divided. With your
spiritual eye open (and your physical eyes closed until you
have trained yourself to see spiritually), you are more able
to perceive the infinite substance from which all physical
things are manifested. The concept of division is limiting;
the concept of multiplication resonates more closely with
the unlimited and creative qualities of abundance.
Manifestation is a constant expansion of Spirit.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
So, how is your arithmetic? Do you live to add, subtract,
multiply, or divide? To be an effective mathematician, you
need to know how to do each procedure and to know when each
one is appropriate. Using only these four possibilities
(add or subtract or multiply or divide) as answers, how do
you respond to the following questions: What do you do when
you see a friend? What do you do when you open your check
book? What do you do when you pick up the telephone to
answer it? What do you do when you meditate? What do you
do when you think about work? What do you do when you work?
What do you do when you play? This month, if you are
successful at subtracting only two negative misconceptions
(or negating only two equations), let them be these: Money
equals abundance; money equals your worth. Close your eyes
and see more clearly.

I cut negative bonds of attachment to lack and limitation.
I cancel the belief that struggle is noble.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Today, cut, unhook, snip, unfasten, sever, unyoke, purge,
chop, unplug, end, split, unbind, eliminate, liberate, burn,
unknot, disentangle, nullify, remove, withdraw, eradicate,
erase, obliterate, dig out, flush, explode, detach, cancel,
disengage, or otherwise disconnect from beliefs in lack and
limitation. In the affirmation, "cut" and "bonds" are used
in very general ways; many other words can work as well. As
to the idea that struggle is noble: I encourage you to honor
that you can be noble and graceful at all times and that
struggle itself is not noble. Struggle is also not necessary.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Your work today is to disconnect from anyone or any thing
that fosters your belief in lack and/or limitation. Here is
an energetic exercise: (1) Allow your imagination to tell
you what the "bond" to lack and/or limitation looks or feels
or sounds like. (Hint: if your thoughts take you to
remembering how the bond was created or who did what to
whom, you have strayed off the exercise. Return to the
sensate qualities of the bond itself.) (2) Identify the
instrument or substance that disconnects or neutralizes the
bond most effectively. (Examples: a metal pipe might
require a blow torch and a crew of workers to remove all
traces of the metal; a nylon string with a fish hook on the
end may require scissors plus pliers to straighten the hook
and gentle hands to remove it so there is no damage.) (3)
Repeat (1) and (2) for any additional bonds. (4) Play,
play, play. Let your imagination work for you. Your
imagination worked when you created the illusion of lack and
limitation, now you can use illusion to erase the false
belief. Step into your truth.

I release memories that allowed belief in poverty and
limitation. The Angel of Abundance assists me in letting go
of false beliefs.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Memories of past experiences can be relived again and again
and again in your thoughts. Historic memories that you do
not recall personally can be viewed on television or the
movies in full color, including music to further embed the
memory! The Angel of Abundance does not collude with the
beliefs in limitations that human beings defend as truth.
Angels only work with love and highest good, so you cannot
manipulate them to do something that is not aligned with
integrity. Angels live in the present and in the Presence,
willingly lift off the toxicity of limited beliefs, if you
ask them. You can request angelic help for yourself and
others. I ask that angels come closer to you and to all
those who read this message.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
If you are willing to invest ten minutes to release
limitations, you can do the following exercise. Identify a
past experience (a memory) that suggests poverty or
limitation. It may be dramatic or mild, long ago or recent.
Trust whatever comes to your awareness. Then write down or
type out a few words that describe the memory, e.g., "Mother
said, 'We don't have enough money for that.'" Or, "I saw
people begging for food." Keep it simple. When you have
your few words, take three deep breaths.... Begin to see or
imagine that you see light or angels or spiritual helpers
come right into the description you have written. This
spiritual energy then moves into the memory itself to
dissipate the limiting belief associated with the memory.
Continue for several minutes; remember this energy is
unlimited. Feel goodness and lightness. Now, (and this is
the most important) do something else that makes you feel
good.

I let go of all blockages to abundance. Resistance
dissolves. Jealousy transmutes. Inadequacy dissipates.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Humans have a lot in common with houses. One commonality is
that both have to be cleaned regularly. The affirmations
this week are intended to assist in this cleaning and
clearing. Resistance, jealousy, and inadequacy collected
from past experiences are just some of the dynamics that
clutter up the energy field. As you let them go by taking
them to the energetic trash bin, space is created for the
abundance of spirit. Keep in mind that these dynamics to be
released are those that have collected in the energy field,
not thoughts and emotions that are honest expressions of
today's experiences. When you no longer have clutter from
the past, you are self-cleaning.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
When you come across a file from 1989 that has no interest
or relevance to you today, what do you do with it? I expect
the answer is that you take it to the recycling bin or the
paper shredder, where angels are waiting for this raw
material to transform its energy for more useful purposes
than creating confusion with the present files. As you work
with today's affirmation (and, as always, feel free to
change the words if others resonate more closely for you),
you may also want to clean out a closet or a drawer or
cabinet. What you do on one level impacts other levels.
So, clean, wash, scrub. Remember to do it joyously.

I rescind obsolete vows of struggle, poverty, sacrifice,
and unworthiness.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This "rescinding vows of limitation" affirmation applies
only to outdated vows, not to current, desired vows. A vow
is an oath, promise, pledge, commitment, declaration, etc.
When initially promised, vows may have been conscious or
unconscious, formal or informal, intentional or
unintentional, religious or secular. Words such as "never"
and "always" and "forever" punctuate vows with longevity
(eternity is a long time). Intensity adds further impact.
"I'll never be good enough" is a powerful vow of limitation.
"I will struggle to my death" is a vow of limitation which
can be active according to your beliefs about death. "I
give all my money and property to God" is a rather
interesting vow of poverty, since the universal source of
energy does not have much use for money or property. Many
such vows have been reinforced in the energy field
generation after generation, transferred through culture,
custom, and heredity. As you release these outdated vows,
you also release yourself, which many refer to as
"forgiveness."

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
In addition to working with today's affirmation by writing
or saying it repeatedly, you may find it helpful to identify
the exact vow or statement that you most desire to rescind.
What past vows of limitation are relevant to your situation?
"You'll never have everything you want" may be the statement
of a loving parent cushioning a child against disappointment,
but it has the impact of a vow of limitation for the child
who grows to an adult with the same limitation. Someone
growing up with the adage "The love of money is the root of
all evil" is unlikely to have a positive relationship with
money, or love for that matter. "If you work hard, you will
make money" has a panorama of paths to conditions of
happiness or unhappiness, easy or hard work, money or lack
of it.

ABOUT YOUR INTENTION
If you have not already done so, please identify your over-
arching intention for Abundance. That is, develop a
statement that guides you in the exploration and embodiment
of abundance. Intention is the energy or consciousness from
which actions emerge. If you are uncertain how to write
this intention, just make an attempt. Keep it simple. You
have 30 days to work with the intention and the theme, so
let your statement change and deepen. Here are a few
suggestions for statements of intention about the theme of
Abundance: *To live in the constant realization that all
my needs are met. *I realize that I manifest from Spirit,
not from the physical. *To know in each moment that I
create my life from the abundance of the universe. *I know
that all my needs are met.

ABOUT RELEASING/CLEANSING AFFIRMATIONS and ABUNDANCE
Humanity has an abundance of thoughts and feelings about
abundance and anti-abundance! Most individuals have
negative thoughts and feelings about money, adequacy,
prosperity, wellness, abundance, worthiness, magnificence,
and poverty. These negative thoughts and feelings manifest
the experiences that further justify negative thoughts and
feelings. In that last sentence lies the truth which can be
restated: Thoughts and feelings manifest experiences that
create more thoughts and feelings to justify the thoughts
and feelings. This week, your job is to become aware of and
work more constructively with negative thoughts and feelings
so that they do not dominate your experiences. I encourage
you to enter into this as a joyous adventure.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you are releasing anti-abundance this week, you will
enhance your process by finding ways to shift quickly from
anti-abundance to something more pleasant. Detoxifying the
mental and emotional layers during this week of releasing
can be similar to symptoms of fasting from food, such as
headache, grogginess, dizziness, general discomfort, mild
depression. While it is not necessary to have any of these
symptoms, if you do, briefly acknowledge the symptom and
move your attention to something else. The realization
that these symptoms are indications of toxins LEAVING the
body is often enough to cooperate with the process by
drinking lots of water, resting, listening to relaxing
music, and refraining from the input of more toxins. And
remember, it is not necessary to be uncomfortable. If you
are, just know that it will pass and that the discomfort is
a sign of success.

I recommend that you write this week's affirmations, if such
a process appeals to you. I have developed a process which
is described in the book, "Affirmations: A Pathway to
Transformation" and in the article entitled, "Writing
Affirmations for Empowerment." This article is posted at my
Web site along with 40 others, http://www.mhmail.com and
then click on Articles by Jeanie.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent releasing and cleansing for Abundance it would
be the "rescinding vows of limitations" affirmation for
September 2: "I rescind old vows of struggle, poverty,
sacrifice, and unworthiness." I consider the retention of
outdated vows is one of the primary deterrents to accepting
abundance into your life. For some bizarre reason, humanity
has accepted that it is more spiritual to be impoverished
than to be prosperous, that somehow you are more acceptable
in the eyes of God if you are lowly, broken creatures, that
you do not deserve your heart's desires. These are
debilitating false beliefs which you can shift. So, shift
your belief in broken human beings to beliefs that are more
empowering.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

September 1:
I give myself permission to release lack easily and
effortlessly from every level of the energy field.

September 2:
I rescind obsolete vows of struggle, poverty, sacrifice, and
unworthiness.

September 3:
I let go of all blockages to abundance. Resistance dissolves.
Jealousy transmutes. Inadequacy dissipates.

September 4:
I release memories that allowed belief in poverty and
limitation. The Angel of Abundance assists me in letting go
of false beliefs.

September 5:
I cut negative bonds of attachment to lack and limitation.
I cancel the belief that struggle is noble.

September 6:
I dissolve thoughts that suggest there is not enough. I end
preoccupation with money as the definition of abundance and
self-worth.

September 7:
I let Spirit (My Higher Self, God, My Spirit Guides, The One,
The Force, Infinite Source) purify any remaining thoughts
and feelings of limitation and poverty.

Peace is a personal choice.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Today's affirmation is the motto of the Targets for Love and
Peace Project which so many of you have been supporting
this month with your Targets. It is up to each individual
to make a choice to live in peace. Others can choose
non-peace while you choose peace. The whole world has the
capacity to allow for a myriad of choices. Make your
personal choice for your personal world.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
This is the perfect day to identify ONE part of your life in
which to make a choice for peace. It may be that you make
peace with piles of papers or undone projects. Or perhaps
today is the day to make peace with a sibling or other
family member. Or if a disagreement has been brewing in the
neighborhood, that may draw your attention for your choice
for peace. Choose peace to create a onederful world, your
world.

relationships and on themselves.

I breathe in peace, I breathe out peace.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The DailyAffirm process now shifts to helping you to
integrate and embody your thoughts and feelings about the
exploration of peace during this month. Today's affirmation
allows your breath to assist with the integration. When you
begin to clear and heal (as, for example, at the beginning
of the month on DailyAffirm or the beginning of a new
awakening), I am likely to say "Breathe in peace, breathe
out non-peace" or other such words and ideas. I find it
helpful to use the in-breath to receive light or anything
else that you desire while you use the out-breath to let go
of darkness or anything that you wish to release. In
today's affirmation, letting go becomes as simple and matter
of fact as breathing in and breathing out.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Today's affirmation is an ideal one to chant. That is, to
say the affirmation either aloud or silently over and over
again, rhythmically. You may even find yourself singing the
words so that you create a song. You can let your breath
create the tempo. You can also use this affirmation to slow
you down: if you are agitated, start by saying the
affirmation quickly and then gradually slow down until you
have calmed and relaxed yourself. Feel the peace.

ABOUT A QUOTATION
"Better than a thousand useless words is one single word
that gives peace. Better than a thousand useless verses is
one single verse that gives peace. Better than a hundred
useless poems is one single poem that gives peace." -The
Dhammapada (c. B.C. 300)

ABOUT TARGETS FOR LOVE AND PEACE
I invite you to submit one or more Targets for Love and
Peace. Please include the target (stated succinctly) and a
high intention. Here is another that was submitted by a
Dailyaffirm subscriber.

Target: Adult Children
Intention: We lovingly accept the adult children of the
world who still feel like a hurting child within. We know
that within us is a child who is ready to grow up and live
fully in this life. We surround all children with our love.


Make this an awakening day!

I act with purposeful awareness of peace in every moment.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Much of humanity is opening to a new conscious awareness.
Humans are already conscious beings, becoming more conscious
of consciousness. When you are aware of your own process
and its purpose, you are intentionally conscious of being
conscious. When you first become aware of something, you
might experience pain or exhilaration or fear or curiosity.
Awakening is a personal experience, as personal and varied
as the awakening from nighttime sleep that you experience
every day. Some grumble, some yawn, some leap from their
beds, some sing to the sun, some reach for their glasses on
the bed stand, some roll over to return to sleep. So, too,
awakening from unconsciousness to consciousness and then
awakening to purposeful awareness are individual processes.
Today, awaken to the awareness of peace.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Do you consider yourself to be aware? Your answer is
probably "yes" and perhaps even a resounding "yes!" To
which my next question is: Of what? It may be very easy
for you to say that you are conscious, that you are aware.
To claim PURPOSEFUL awareness is a step beyond being
conscious. And yet another step is to be purposefully aware
in EVERY MOMENT. Knowing that additional consciousness is
available can be a source of great comfort. Are you acting
with the enlightenment of peace?

month. Tomorrow the Integrating/Embodying peace affirmations
begin. Today is a good day to check for a final action you
might want to take to demonstrate peace. Of course, each day
forward you might want to claim and demonstrate peace. A
re-visit of your over-arching intention for peace also
allows you to integrate more fully all that you have
learned this month.

I let every act be an act of peace. My peaceful
consciousness makes a difference to my world.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This affirmation reminds you that peace can be invited into
every action you take. Peace is not passive. Peace, of
course, can be gentle, even silent, yet peace is also
action-oriented. Ordinary daily activities such as brushing
your teeth and talking on the telephone and eating your
breakfast can be experienced with a whole new perspective by
associating them with a peaceful consciousness. So, too,
extraordinary acts can be peaceful. It is the consciousness
of peace that manifests the acts that you call peaceful.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
What, to you, is a "peaceful consciousness"? What, to you,
is a "peaceful act"? You may find you have very broad
definitions or narrow and exacting ones. Regardless of your
personal definition, though, your consciousness and your
actions do make a positive difference in your world when they
are peaceful. Identify some action you will take today
(call it a "target" if you wish) and bathe it with the
consciousness of peace. Remember, also, that it is
acceptable to act in a non-peaceful way and then find a
peaceful resolution.

ABOUT TARGETS FOR LOVE AND PEACE
We welcome your targets and statements of intention.
Remember: The target identifies a focus; the statement of
intention identifies a high intention, clears us of
manipulation or fears or anger, and directs the flow of
loving, peaceful energy to the target. Visit the
DailyAffirm Blog two submit your target as a "comment."

I draw a circle of peace. I give my peaceful energy to
places on the planet calling for harmony.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This affirmation embodies the idea of Targets for Love and
Peace that many of you have been working with throughout this
month. Any place that is in disharmony is calling for
harmony; any part in pain is calling for relief; any person
who is living in ignorance is calling for enlightenment.
Newspapers and news broadcasts help you to identify which
people, places, things, and ideas are calling for love and
light and peace. Your own personal experiences also give
you clues for targets. Draw a circle around each target and
all targets, and then fill the circles with peaceful energy.
When you identify your targets, you clear yourself of anger,
resentment, judgment, remorse, disdain, or pity. The
targets probably already have plenty of these energies!
Instead, give them your attention with Peace; give them your
attention with Love.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Around what do you draw a circle today? Perhaps you create
a circle around yourself or a part of your physical body or
your community or the whole world. You have permission to
be selfish or selfless, whatever feels appropriate for you
right now. Envisioning peace in a circle ANY place on the
planet enhances your own awareness of peace. And remember,
you need not limit yourself to only one circle; circles of
peace are unlimited. With your intention high, you make a
positive difference.

ABOUT TARGETS FOR LOVE AND PEACE
As we come to the last days of this month, be certain to
submit a target on any August message on the DailyAffirm
Blog, http://www.dailyaffirm.com if you wish to participate
in this Project. It is a helpful way to ACT on peace.

Target: Abundance and Abundance Consciousness
Intention: We hold a vision of enLIGHTenment flowing into
the consciousness of everyone on the planet, creating the
REALization that there is more than enough for all, and
manifesting the TRUTH of abundance.

Make this a collaborative day!

I manifest all things in association with peace. Peace is
my partner.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Ah, such a partner, Peace. All that you have manifested on
the physical plane has been a process of co-creation.
Sometimes you co-create what you like or prefer and sometimes
you co-create what you do not like or prefer. Your own
creations depend on where you put your attention. Today,
let peace provide the energy to co-create those things that
you desire. You do not need to ask peace to be with you in
partnership, just give peace your attention and you are in
partnership. The consciousness of peace propels your
actions. Peace is with you. I encourage you to find a way
to accept that others choose to partner with non-peace or
another interpretation of peace.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
So, what is it you desire to manifest today? A report? A
shift in a relationship? New clients or customers?
Innovative products? A clean house? Your manifestation may
be big or small, mundane or profound, simple or complex,
quiet or noisy. The proof of manifestation is not so much
the focus of today's affirmation as the process of
manifesting with peace. You may find it helpful to write a
Target to focus the energy of peace to assist you in
manifesting what you desire.

I claim my peace, my power. Peace is my power.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The word "power" has a negative punch for many folks. In
hockey and business, a common expression is "power play."
Terms like "political power" or "power politics" are usualy
said with disdain or envy. The "power of money" usually
means that those who have money make the decisions or have
influence over those who do not have money. Considering
"peace as power" creates a different picture. To claim
peace, you must be peaceful. You must be what you seek,
walk your talk, embody what you desire. Peace is powerful;
conflict can also be powerful. You may find that this is
the perfect time to let go of the fascination with war and
distortions as you move to claim peace in your own life.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
What images/feelings/thoughts come to you as you read
today's affirmation or as you see the word "power"? The
more you can come to peace with the idea of power, the more
you can step into your own power. True power comes from
inside you, not from a title or office or game or status
symbol. The power of peace is unlimited. What is the power
of peace for you? How does the power of peace manifest in
your life?

ABOUT TARGETS FOR LOVE AND PEACE
I invite you to submit one or more TARGETS FOR PEACE AND
LOVE. Please include the target (stated succinctly) and a
high intention. Below is one that has been submitted by a
Dailyaffirm subscriber. Review the Targets at the Marshall
House Web Site, http://www.mhmail.com/Targets.html and then
submit a target on any August message on the DailyAffirm
Blog, http://www.dailyaffirm.com

Target: Children of the world
Intention: We lovingly embrace the children of the world so
that they know peace in their lifetime, a world at peace
with itself, a world at peace, filled with light, love and
laughter.


Make this a playful day!

I act with peace in my heart. I speak with peace on my lips.
I walk with peace in my feet.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This affirmation invites the Spirit of peace to touch you in
all parts of your being. Emotionally, let peace touch you
so that you act in heart-felt ways. Let your mental body be
filled with peace so that the words you draw from your
thoughts are inundated with the energy of peace. Let your
physical body be showered with the consciousness of peace,
right down to the bottoms of your feet, so that every step
you take is a step with peace, for peace, in peace, as
peace. Be filled to overflowing with peace.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you reflect on this affirmation, you may find that one
particular aspect of your being is more in need of the light
of peace. It is sometimes helpful to focus on one aspect at
a time: physical, emotional, mental, or spiritual. Of
course, you are all one (not four isolated parts), but some-
times it is helpful to look at the parts to understand and
appreciate the whole more completely. You may find that you
resonate with only one of the three statements and choose to
work with that one. Or you may find that you repeat one
statement more frequently than the other two. Play with the
affirmation; make it work for you.

ABOUT TARGETS FOR LOVE AND PEACE
Target: Gastao F.
Intention: We surround Gastao F. in light and peace of mind,
knowing that all is well, regardless of appearances. We
honor the mysteries of life and death. We give thanks to
the Divine for this life and all life.


Make this an energetic day!

Peace energizes my actions. I move on my path in peace.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Today, DailyAffirm shifts into the action-oriented
affirmations to encourage you to affirm that your actions
are propelled by the energy of peace. It is very popular
these days to use the word "path" when talking about a
spiritual journey in this life. While the word may be
commonly used, you perhaps have different perceptions of
your path than others have of their path. Sometimes it is
helpful to envision what the path looks or feels like
before you gas up your vehicle.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
When you see or imagine your "path" what do you see or
imagine? Is your path straight and fixed, such as train
tracks? Or is your path winding, such as a path in the
woods that meanders around trees and streams? Or is your
path rocky, such as a gravelly driveway? Or is your path
one which goes straight up to heaven on a ladder? Or is
your path cloudy in one moment, clear the next; swampy in
one moment, solid in the next; boring in one moment,
colorful in the next? What is your path? Are you moving on
it in peace or mostly peace or with peace in your heart?

ABOUT SPECIFIC TARGETS FROM DAILYAFFIRM SUBSCRIBERS
We invite you to submit one or more TARGETS FOR PEACE AND
LOVE at the DailyAffirm Blog, http://www.dailyaffirm.com
Here are some examples to inspire and touch you.

Target: All those Dailyaffirm touches
Intention: We know that we are all filled with love and
light to make a positive difference in our world.

Target: Those who live alone
Intention: We extend the loving and peaceful consciousness
of the Spirit so that all those who experience aloneness or
loneliness or isolation may feel the presence of love, joy,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness.

Make this a moving week plus!

Greetings on the 4th week of August with the theme of Peace.
During this fourth week we focus on Acting/Claiming
Affirmations, and the last days of the month we focus on
Integrating/Embodying Affirmations. Make this a moving week
plus!

Read DailyAfirm on the Internet, with links to resources.

ABOUT ACTING/CLAIMING AFFIRMATIONS and PEACE
"Acting/Claiming" Affirmations are perhaps the most popular
and common in the personal growth movement. "I claim my
power" and "I'm getting better in each day in every way" are
examples of this type of affirmation. These certainly are
different from the affirmations you have been working with
over the last three weeks. I developed this five-part
process because I discovered in my empowerment consulting
practice that many people are not ready to believe that they
can claim their power or peace or love or mastery. Prepare
yourself for accepting your power.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
HOW do you claim peace? You may find it helpful to look at
specific situations when you have acted peacefully --
perhaps when circumstances might have suggested a
non-peaceful act. If you reflect on specific situations,
please be careful that you do not get hooked on the
situations -- just use them as a means to teach you about
yourself. Remember, the question is "HOW do you claim
peace?" Alternative ways of stating the question are:
"By what means do you claim peace?" Or, "What processes do
you use to claim peace?" When you are clear about the
processes or means or methods that you have already
experienced, you may find that you can more easily expand
your repertoire of methods as well as the frequency of your
claims of peace.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent acting and claiming for peace it would be the
affirmation for August 28: "I act with purposeful awareness
of peace in every moment." To act with "purposeful
awareness" just once each day is a starting place. This
means that IN THE MOMENT of acting you are aware of peace,
not just thinking about peace before an event, not just
remembering about peace after the act, but being aware in
the moment of the act that you are in the consciousness of
peace. The more you are aware in isolated acts, the more
likely you can expand your awareness and make peace a
condition of your life.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

August 22:
Peace energizes my actions. I move on my path in peace.

August 23:
I act with peace in my heart. I speak with peace on my
lips. I walk with peace in my feet.

August 24:
I claim my peace, my power. Peace is my power.

August 25:
I manifest all things in association with peace. Peace is
my partner.

August 26:
I draw a circle of peace. I give my peaceful energy to
places on the planet calling for harmony.

August 27:
I let every act be an act of peace. My peaceful
consciousness makes a difference to my world.

August 28:
I act with purposeful awareness of peace in every moment.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT INTEGRATING/EMBODYING AFFIRMATIONS and PEACE
The purpose of the integrating and embodying affirmations is
to give you time and space to let the energy of peace settle
and anchor itself more deeply into your energy field. During
this time you do not seek new information about peace;
instead, allow the information and feelings and experiences
of the month to find their rightful place in your physical,
emotional, mental, and spiritual bodies.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Over the next three days, work with one, two, or all three
of these affirmations. Each one is deeply powerful. Also,
if you have been making notes about peace throughout this
month or working with the affirmations in meaningful ways,
take time to reflect on your processes and learnings.
Remember, Spirit is available to assist you in manifesting
peace in your world.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

August 29:
I breathe in peace, I breathe out peace.

August 30:
Peace is a personal choice.

August 31:
Today is an opportunity for peace.

Peace enhances and underpins all my thoughts and feelings.
Peace is worthy of my attention.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Peace is everywhere. In some places you must work harder to
uncover it than in other places, but it is everywhere. Your
mission, if you choose to accept it, is to affirm that peace
is worthy of your attention. The ideas and things to which
you give your attention expand. And expand. And expand.
You want to magnify and intensify those ideas and feelings
that you admire and prefer, so give those your attention.
Yes, of course, the negative stuff also exists, but do not
keep bringing the negative into the foreground. The
negative belongs in the background to enhance the images in
the foreground.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
To what do you give your attention? Surely if you are
working with these affirmations each day, you are giving
your attention to peace. At least for a while. And when
the words of the affirmation fade into the activities of the
day, to what do you give your attention? Here is a simple
exercise that you can play with. Did you take any
photographs on your most recent holiday / vacation /
celebration? If so, look at those. Look first at the film
(the negatives) then the prints (the positives). Which is
more pleasant? Which is more intriguing? Which is more
discernible? Can you turn your attention from fascination
with the distortions to focus on the positive? Today, to
what do you give your attention?

I understand the meaning of peace. I let peace express
itself through me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
One of the ways to understand something deeply is to merge
with it, to become one with it, to become it. Such a process
can feel a little scary when you want to understand certain
things or people. Even peace. For, in order to become one
with peace, you must turn your attention away from un-peace
and non-peace and anti-peace and war and anti-war, and turn
it to peaceful thoughts. The more you give your attention
to what you want, the more easily you can attract more of
the same. Let the consciousness of peace be with you, flow
through you, and stand in, around, and under your energy
field.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Consider what it means in your own life for peace to express
itself through you. At first, this might seem like a
strange idea. How can peace have the consciousness to
express itself? If it helps you to personify peace in order
to understand this affirmation, change the third person
singular impersonal pronoun (it) to second person (you) or
third person singular (she/her or he/him). Here is one
variation of today's affirmation personifying peace: "I
understand your meaning, Peace. I let you express yourself
through me." The purpose of this affirmation is to let you
be a place for the consciousness of peace to live.

ABOUT TARGETS FOR LOVE AND PEACE
TARGET: Thomas M.
INTENTION: We embrace Thomas with loving energy knowing that
he is fulfilling his highest intention. His transformation
is peacful and complete. He is in safety and joy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I remember peace. I remember who I Am. I Am Peace.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The peace to call to your memory today is a peace more
profound than the absence of war; it is the peace that
passes human understanding. It is the peace that reminds
you that all is well, tells you that you are safe. It is
the peace on earth that manifests in the lives of
individuals. It is not a fantasy, not an illusion, but real
peace. This peace manifests with the power of the I Am
presence flowing consciously thorough you saying, "I Am
Peace" and then continues to choose peace. You must choose
to live in peace. And choose again. And again.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Remember your role or part in manifesting peace, which is
significant. You need not feel responsible beyond your own
piece of the planet, your own world. Just show up 100% in
each moment of today in your piece of the world with your
peace in your heart, and you have done your part. Remember
(and re-member) God's whisper to your soul. Remember that
whatever follows "I am" is magnified, multiplied, and
enhanced. Make the words that follow "I am" worthy of
expansion.

My mission is to live peacefully in my world.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Your life mission is your reason for being. From the
consciousness of your being, you speak and think and do.
This is a good day to affirm your higher purpose, even (or
perhaps that is especially) when you feel weak or lost or
stuck. While I do not encourage you to use your humanness
as an excuse for inept actions, you do want to be gentle
with that part of yourself that is human. And it is that
human part of you that must acknowledge Spirit, wholeness,
and oneness. Your world includes everyone and anyplace and
every place that has your attention. If you tend to define
your world to be too big for the focus of your attention,
consider defining your world closer to home to make the idea
of finding peace more attainable and pleasurable.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
It is helpful for you to notice if the affirming of this
statement elicits guilt or disdain or cynicism or other
reactions in you. If so, your work is first on the guilt or
disdain or cynicism (or whatever) so that you can return to
the truth of the affirmation. A way to work with this is to
say or think or feel these words as each aspect of your
world attracts your attention, for example, a trip to the
supermarket, feelings about an interaction with someone
yesterday, newspaper articles, your computer, thoughts about
tomorrow. Notice opposing reactions, if any, to the
affirmation when applied to each stimulus. Reduce your
opposing reactions (resistance), if any, by simply breathing
them away or by developing another affirmation that
addresses the reaction. Then return to today's affirmation.
Then move to the next stimulus. This approach will expand
your world while also making it more peaceful.

ABOUT A TARGET
Target: All men and women who experience challenges in
relationships
Intention: We surround in loving consciousness all those
experiencing challenges in relationships that they may keep
an open heart to deepen their capacity for joy and compassion.

High intention operates in the midst of peace. Peace
operates in the midst of high intention.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This affirmation always feels like a palindrome to me,
although technically it is not. That feeling, though, sent
me to two dictionaries and a thesaurus (although the word is
not in my version of the latter). The first definition of
"palindrome" I was familiar with: "1. A word, phrase, verse,
or sentence that reads the same backward or forward."
However, I realized when reading the second definition that
the purpose of the nudge from my intution to search linguistic
authority was to find this: "2. A segment of double-stranded
DNA in which the nucleotide sequence of one strand reads in
reverse order to that of the complementary strand." Aha!
The consciousness of this affirmation supports the
integration of a new DNA. I recognize that it is still part
of the generally-accepted reality to believe that our DNA
never changes; however, I see changes of the DNA reflected
in the energy field of clients I work with individually.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
First of all, let me remind you that I have no need for you
to agree with anything that I say in these messages. Take
from them what is meaningful to you, and leave or put aside
the rest. Let this process be a gentle one, not one of
criticism or ridicule. It is a powerful practice to leave
what you do not want for someone else who chooses it.
Consider what gives meaning to your life with respect to
peace. Perhaps peace of mind, just a little piece of peace,
inner peace, peace-fullness, world peace, peace in the
family or neighborhood, the peace that passes human under-
standing, peace among nations. Peace. Just peace.

I deepen my awareness of the consciousness of peace, from
which my joyous actions spring.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
You might have different ideas from others about what the
"consciousness of peace" is and different experiences of how
it manifests in your life. I, of course, define it in terms
of energy because my professional work is about energy and
energetics and helping people to transform at the deepest
part of the energy field. You cannot simply say you are at
peace and be at peace, but finding words of peace is an
admirable starting place. While using the proper language
does not manifest your heart's desires, it directs your
focus so that you can be more clear about your life's
fulfillment.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
What does your energy field say about your relationship to
peace? How deeply are you able to dip into the consciousness
of peace? How aware are you of the non-peace (if any) which
leaks from your energy field, even when you purport to be
peaceful? This is not a condemnation; this is an exercise
in awareness. If you are looking for visual clues, you are
looking in the wrong place. If you are looking for agreement
or disagreement from another person, you are looking in the
wrong direction. Take a deep breath, close your eyes, and
look within. What is the consciousness/energy of peace into
which you dip today in order to speak and think and act?

ABOUT TARGETS FOR LOVE AND PEACE
If you have a Target, please visit the Targets Web Site at <http://www.mhmail.com/Targets.html>; for additional
information. We welcome you to post a Target as a "comment"
on any August DailyAffirm message at http://dailyaffirm.com
We are willing to assist you, but we ask that you at least
make an attempt to write the intention yourself. You will
learn a lot from the experience. The ones from previous d
ays serve as examples. Together, we make a positive difference.

I know that peace leads to the highest good for all.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This is the first day in the third week when DailyAffirm
shifts the type of affirmations from Accepting/Receiving to
Being/Intending. Notice that the second word in today's
affirmation is "know" not "think" or "feel" or "ask" or
"believe" or "hope." This is a spiritual knowing that opens
your consciousness, not an arrogant or pedantic knowing that
narrows your focus or offends the less intellectual or
insults others on different paths. You "know" in your heart
and your head. Sometimes you "know" with every fiber of
your being. Peace is a path that leads to the highest good
for all.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
With today's affirmation in mind, revisit your over-arching
intention for peace. Then consider the following questions.
How do you define the difference between knowing and
thinking? What does that difference mean to you? How do
you experience each of the following: (1) knowing with your
head, (2) knowing with your heart, and (3) knowing with both
your head and heart at the same time? Can you discern the
differences between (1) and (2) without judging that one is
better than the other?

ABOUT TARGETS FOR LOVE AND PEACE
Do you have a target that is calling for peace or love or
light? Visit the Marshall House Web site and read the
information on the Targets page. Please use previous targets
to inspire you to write a target for something or someone you
identify as desiring or needing light, love, and peace.
Note there are two steps: (1) Clearly and succinctly
identify the Target, then (2) Make a statement that reflects
your own intention/purpose so that you can envision an
empowering image. For example, a Target for someone who has
an illness would not mention the illness, but health,
because it is health you want to magnetize. What you give
your attention to, expands. And here are two model Targets.

TARGET: All creatures great and small
INTENTION: We embrace all creatures great and small. We
lift the hearts and minds of all people with the awareness
of, sensitivity to and compassion for the feelings of all
the animals of the earth.

TARGET: People undergoing transformation and change
INTENTION: We surround all changes we experience with the
energy of peace and love, so that we can all more easily
say, "I trust the Universe. I am safe."

ABOUT BEING/INTENDING AFFIRMATIONS and PEACE
DailyAffirm works this week with affirmations that support
you in further knowing who you are and what you intend
(being and intending) with respect to Peace. To accept
peace into your life is different from being at peace.
Honor where you are in consciousness. Rejoice that you can
choose both: to accept peace and to be peace.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you work with one or more affirmations this week, you may
find it helpful to remind yourself frequently of the over-
arching intention that you set for peace. Each time you dip
into the energy and consciousness of yourintention, you are
likely to have a deeper awareness of the meaning of your
intention as well as clear indications that you are
manifesting with the energy of your intention and not with
the energy of something else.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent being and intending for Peace it would be
"Peace enhances and underpins all my thoughts and feelings.
Peace is worthy of my attention." This is the affirmation
for August 21. Hidden among the words of this affirmation
is the recognition that at any given moment an action or
idea or thought may appear to be unpeaceful or disharmonious,
yet peace is present. This affirmation helps you to release
the false belief that life is a snapshot that tells the
whole story; it supports you in experiencing life more like
the operator of a video tape machine with continuous play
at many layers and levels.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

August 15:
I know that peace leads to the highest good for all.

August 16:
I deepen my awareness of the consciousness of peace, from
which my joyous actions spring.

August 17:
High intention operates in the midst of peace. Peace

I am ready right now to live in peace.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
You might find that you sometimes say you are ready when
really you are only ready to be ready. You might even say
you are ready to live in peace and then send angry thoughts
to a neighbor or resentment to a salesperson or disgust to a
troubled spot in the world. These are the thoughts and
feelings of non-peace that foster still more non-peace. You
might try to excuse such thoughts and feelings by claiming
your humanness or citing the wrongful acts of others. Being
human is a gift, not an excuse for being non-loving and
unkind. Ready yourself to accept peace in your life. You
can do this by making a conscious choice to see peace
everywhere.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Whether you are ready for peace or ready to be ready for
peace, open to all the images and thoughts and feelings and
ideas related to peace. Your "assignment" today is to write
a Target for the TARGETS FOR LOVE AND PEACE PROJECT. I have
included Targets in recent DailyAffirm Messages which serve
as models. And check out the Targets for Love and Peace Web
Site at http://www.mhmail.com/Targets.html The DailyAffirm
Blog is set up for you to post your Targets. Visit it at
http://www.dailyaffirm.com.

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
This is the last of the Receiving/Accepting Affirmations
this month. Tomorrow the exploration of peace shifts to
Being/Intending affirmations. Today you may want to reflect
on all that you have received in the consciousness of peace
so that you can explore more deeply who you are. Please
also re-visit your over-arching intention because we use
that as a foundation for next week's affirmations.

I accept hope, peace, joy, and love in all aspects of my life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
When one or two key issues grab your attention, you might
forget that other parts of your life can also use some
peaceful energy. So, today's affirmation helps you to open
all the parts of life to vibrations of hope, peace, joy, and
love. Even though there is only One Life, you tend to
experience life in segments and compartments. Today, open
the drawers and shelves, parts and particles, layers and
levels of life so that healing thoughts and feelings can
pour in and fill you and overflow. This concept can help to
erase the feelings of overwhelm and overload.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Do you feel overwhelmed? Do you feel that you have too many
demands on your time and resources? I hear from many of my
clients and DailyAffirm subscribers that they feel over-
whelmed; and I look at my own office with the clutter of too
many papers. If you feel overwhelmed, here is an approach
you might use working with today's affirmation: say it
repeatedly, silently or aloud, as your eyes fall on all the
tasks that face you and/or as you bring into your awareness
all that you must accomplish today. Breathe peace and love
into all aspects of your life.

Peace, you are my friend. I keep you by my side and in my
heart at all times.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Here is a wonderful image: you have a friend at your side
and in your heart at all times. The friend's name is Peace.
This is an image that is surely worthy of your attention.
It is also an image that is worthy of expansion. As you
master the art of being in an intimate relationship with
Peace, other people who have intimate relationships with
Peace gravitate to you. As you expand your inner peace
outwardly, you find peaceful experiences reflected in your
world. Remember that Peace is a Personal Choice.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
So, consider...... If Peace is your friend and Peace is at
your side and in your heart at all times...... What is it
you and Peace talk about? Do you remember that your friend,
Peace, is always with you? If you forget, what helps you to
remember again? When you go to lunch today, remember Peace
is with you. When you hear an angry voice (in you, from
you, or from outside you), remember Peace is with you. When
you breathe today, remember Peace is with you. When you go
to sleep tonight, remember Peace is with you.

ABOUT TARGETS FOR PEACE AND LOVE
I encourage you to write one or more TARGETS FOR PEACE AND
LOVE. Additional information is at the Marshall House Web
Site <http://www.mhmail.com/Targets.html>;. The form guides
you through developing a Target (stated succinctly) and a
high intention. Here's an excellent example:

TARGET: Government people, elected and employed
INTENTION: We surround all those in positions of governance
in peaceful thoughts so that they are guided by highest
integrity, wisdom, love and the highest good for all
concerned.

ABOUT AN INVITATION TO PARTICIPATE
The DailyAffirm Blog is available for you to post your
Targets. Please first read the information about writing

Dear God, allow me to experience peace in a way that I can
understand.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Open to the grace that allows peace to show up in your life
in a simple and understandable way. Seek true peace of mind
and peace-fullness, rather than merely the absence of war or
the brief in-breath after a conflict. Seek a depth that
transcends human understanding, yet recognize that it is our
human intellect that seeks this knowledge and awareness. Is
your responsibility to manifest your own peace, and this is
the peace that is determined by the focus of your own attention.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
How do YOU pray? That is, how do you talk with the divine?
There are so many ways to be in such a conversation: to
speak, to listen, to show and tell; to be silent, to sing,
to chant, to praise, to thank, to confess, to express, to be.
What do you say to the divine? That is, what is the actual
content of your conversations or expressions? Everything
that has your attention is worthy of a conversation with God
(or insert your word for the divine): your feelings and
opinions, the experiences of the day, your hopes and dreams,
your disappointments and pains, your fears and doubts, your
joys and accomplishments. All of it. So, today, what is
your prayer?

ABOUT TARGETS FOR LOVE AND PEACE
When participating in TARGETS FOR LOVE AND PEACE, it is
important to check your intention, keeping it as high as
possible. For example, you might say that your intention is
"for the highest good of all." Or you might think, "I open
myself to allow love to flow through me, wherever it is
needed." While it may be tempting, it is not appropriate to
participate in TARGETS FOR LOVE AND PEACE with the intention
of "fixing" something or someone. Your role is to identify
the target and hold a space for peace and love to express.
As you participate in TARGETS FOR LOVE AND PEACE, continue
to check your intention. http://www.mhmail.com/Targets.html.
Here is an example.

Target: Todd and Alison
Intention: We hold Alison and Todd in the light, knowing that
they are rediscovering their love for each and learning to
love each other on a higher level.

Sonnet # LXI.

Is it thy will thy image should keep open
My heavy eyelids to the weary night?
Dost thou desire my slumbers should be broken,
While shadows like to thee do mock my sight?
Is it thy spirit that thou send'st from thee
So far from home into my deeds to pry,
To find out shames and idle hours in me,
The scope and tenor of thy jealousy?
O, no! thy love, though much, is not so great:
It is my love that keeps mine eye awake;
Mine own true love that doth my rest defeat,
To play the watchman ever for thy sake:
For thee watch I whilst thou dost wake elsewhere,
From me far off, with others all too near.

Make this nature's day!

I allow peace to flow through me and keep my attention.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Peace can flow through you as a river, if you but open your
consciousness to allow peace into your life in this
effortless way. So often, though, you get distracted.
Activity and noise usually get your attention more than
peace or silence or stillness. As you give your attention
to meditating and being conscious and caring about the
planet and loving life, you make it more natural for peace
to be wherever you are. Prepare a place for peace by
practicing peaceful acts. Allow peace to use you. Allow
yourself to be a place for peace to manifest.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
To what do you give your attention? To things? To ideas?
To the mundane? To difficulties? To the ideal? To
circumstances? To goals? To frustrations? To news broad-
casts? To Spirit? Over the course of a day, your attention
is likely to flow to many different things and ideas, to
possibilities, to questions, to facts, to dreams, to
opinions. You may find yourself inspired or bored -- it is
your choice how you respond to the events and conditions in
your life. Remember that you are not the events and
conditions, but can use them to give peace an opportunity to
manifest.

ABOUT TARGETS FOR LOVE AND PEACE
I encourage you to be on the search for events and
conditions that are in need of a loving and peaceful
consciousness. Give your attention to peace. Here is an
example of using this process to lighten your world. In a
news item, I read about the devastation of fires in a local
area. Here is a Target based on this news item:

TARGET: Fires in the Valley
INTENTION: To hold in the light of loving consciousness all
involved: those who have died or experienced injury,
families and friends, rescue workers, medical personnel, all
who have helped or observed, and the land.

I recognize that the Universe is like a symphony, with many
parts, players, sounds, and rhythms, creating the whole.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Life is, indeed, a symphony. You may hear it as Beethoven's
Fifth Symphony; you may hear it as Pachobel's Canon in D;
you may hear it as Jingle Bells; or you may hear it as an
unpleasant cacophony. You receive sounds through the air,
energy interpreted by your ears and other parts of your body.
Consider how you can make it as simple to receive peace into
your life as it is to hear music with your ears or feel
music as you naturally do. When I originally composed this
message, I was listening to Vangelis' "La Petite Fille de la
Mer." It has a sweet tone and texture, probably considered
a lullaby. Some music is for your feet, some for your heart,
some for your head, and some for your soul. You can dance
with or against the music. You can hum or be silent. You
choose how to accept the music of life.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
What is your favorite symphony or song? Stop for a moment.
Close your eyes and listen deeply to hear your favorite
music from inside you. Are these the sounds of peace -- or
are they the sounds of something else? Listen to the tone,
the cadence, the rhythm. Do you hear the parts or the whole
or both? Listen for the changes in volume and resonance and
pitch. What is the song you are to sing today? What
symphony do you want to conduct today?

ABOUT TARGETS FOR PEACE AND LOVE
In 1990, I began sponsoring a service project called
"Targets for Peace and Love." This is a project in
consciousness -- no meetings, no dues. The slogan for the
project is "Peace is a Personal Choice." As you continue to
open to peace this month, please visit the Targets Web Page
<http://www.mhmail.com/Targets.html>;. Please consider
participating in the Project, which I will tell you more
about over the next several days and weeks.

I release memories that allowed belief in war and strife. I
let peaceful angels clear misconceptions and distortions
from my path.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
All experiences and events are manifested from thoughts and
beliefs and feelings. War and strife are no exception; war
and strife exist only because thoughts create them.
Memories of past war and strife collect in your energy field
unless you intentionally give your attention to something
else. The good news is that the negative aspects of these
thoughts CAN be shifted so that they do not cause further
distortion. War on war is still war. War on terrorism feeds
terrorism. You can join with others to release distortions
and misconceptions that have been used to create dissonance.
Most important, release resistance.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Do you believe in war and strife? Maybe. Maybe not. While
you may not be personally responsible for any war or strife
currently on the planet, you contribute to the consciousness
that exists here. You can have a direct impact on shifting
that consciousness from war to peace, from dark to light.
How? By living in peace yourself. By envisioning peace.
By knowing that peace is possible in your world. By turning
your attention from news on war to an aspect of peace. By
no longer providing the fuel of war: doubts and fears and
anger and hatred and beliefs in scarcity are examples of
such fuel. When you are aware of your thoughts of peace,
you are less likely to yield to thoughts of revenge or war
or other distortions. You can do it. Give your attention
to what you want. Start now.

I let go of everything -- real or apparent -- that distracts
me from peace and harmony. I release resistance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The world presents many opportunities for distractions.
Stuff from the past can distract you. Fears of the future
can distract you. Lies and doubts and comparisons can also
distract you. Resistance is an interesting energy that can
keep you creating and re-creating the habits and patterns
and fears that prevent you from living in peace. It is time
to let go of non-peace dynamics, and to let go in a
matter-of-fact way. As your consciousness lifts, your
awareness of reality shifts. The things you do not want, no
matter how real they have appeared, drop from your attention.
The things you want that have been invisible become more
visible. You can live in the peace which passes human
understanding.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
What distracts YOU from peace and harmony? Maybe nothing.
Maybe you are able to live in peace and harmony most of the
time. If so, bravo! Let your consistent attention to
peace and harmony expand outward as a model for others. If
you do feel distracted by non peace, let your life mission
be your most potent guide for living in peace. When you
embrace and live your true purpose, you are at peace. Such
peace is so profound that words can only touch the surface
of its understanding.

I rescind obsolete vows of struggle and outdated beliefs in
separation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Vows and beliefs can be rescinded, revoked, reversed. Any
current, desired vows and beliefs remain intact when you use
this affirmation. You do not want to eradicate something
merely because of its age, but because of its relevance.
The planet is filled with masters of struggle and separation
who are now ready to shift their attention to other areas to
demonstrate mastery (for example, peace and joy and love and
wisdom). You can approach peace and joy and love and wisdom
with the same determination and intensity that allowed you
to believe so strongly in struggle and separation. Then
release the determination and intensity; gently let it go.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Here is an exercise so you can play with the idea of
separation and oneness, struggle and peace. Pick up a piece
of paper or book or CD case or any solid, flat object. With
that object in one hand, place your other hand in front of
you about 10-12 inches from your face with the palm facing
you and your fingers spread apart. Now, place the object
against the palm of your hand so that only the tips of your
fingers and thumb are exposed. See the five fleshy things,
each somewhat similar yet unique and unconnected. Slowly
now, begin to move the object downward or your hand upward,
so that you gradually witness that these five pieces of
flesh become closer as the obstruction lessens. Then
remove the object to reveal that the five digits that first
appeared as separate are not only connected, they are all
one.

Imagine the interactions of the fingertips with each other
when the object veils the Truth of their oneness -- probably
they fight, compare, wish or bargain for a different
position. When the appearance of separation is dissolved,
how truly absurd it is that one fingertip might injure or
envy another fingertip. After a fingertip accepts itself as
a fingertip, it explores its journey to the source and
remembers (re-members) its oneness. (Hmm. I feel a story
bubbling entitled "Adventures of a Fingertip.") :-)

Make this an effortless day!

Greetings on the 1st day of August with the theme of Peace.
This is a Releasing/Cleansing Affirmation in the first week
of the month. Make this an effortless day!

ABOUT THE OVER-ARCHING INTENTION
If you have not already done so, please identify your over-
arching intention for Peace. That is, develop a statement
that guides you in the exploration and embodiment of peace.
Intention is the energy or consciousness from which actions
emerge. If you are uncertain how to write this intention,
just make an attempt. Keep your statement simple. You have
31 days to work with the intention and the theme, so let
your statement change and deepen. Here are a few
suggestions for statements of intention about the theme of
Peace: *To be in harmony. *To be a place for peace to
reside. *To experience peace in my world. *To realize the
peace that passes human understanding.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I give myself permission to release disharmony and conflict
from the energy field. I find it easy to say goodbye to
dis-ease and disease.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
To have permission is the perfect starting place. I have
repeatedly seen how powerful it is for those who are
uncertain, when someone says simply, "it's OK." Sometimes
you need to hear permission from someone whom you trust;
sometimes you need to hear permission from within yourself;
sometimes you need to hear permission from a stranger who
knows nothing about you. Today's permission is for the
release of non-peace. When you affirm the effortlessness of
saying goodbye to non-peace, you can lessen or eliminate
uncomfortable sensations while the non-peace passes.
Feeling discomfort is the clue that you must name your
process a "healing" and keep moving.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Your over-arching intention for Peace is an idea that serves
as an umbrella over the exploration of peace as well as over
your actions with respect to the idea of peace. You may
find it helpful to specify a focus for your exploration:
personal peace, family peace, work place peace, community
peace, interpersonal peace, internal peace, world peace, or
another piece of peace. Whatever has your attention has
your energy.

I recommend that you write this week's affirmations, if such
a process appeals to you. I have developed a process which
is described in the book, "Affirmations: A Pathway to
Transformation" and in the article entitled, "Writing
Affirmations for Empowerment." This article is posted at
my Web site along with 40 others, http://www.mhmail.com

ABOUT RELEASING/CLEANSING AFFIRMATIONS and PEACE
The week of releasing and cleansing is designed to support
you in clearing away those things that block the expression
or realization of peace. Limitations and interference with
peace include dis-ease (disease) and dis-harmony (disharmony)
and fear and conflict and separation and struggle and war
and revenge and pain and indecision. Releasing non-peace
can be joyous or non-joyous, peaceful or non-peaceful. You
can choose.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Are you holding on to something? If so, release and let go.
You may know what you are holding on to or you may not.
The process of release does NOT require that you know what
you are clearing; in fact, exploring all the details keeps
the stuff around rather than letting it go. Make the choice.
Relax and let go. Know that all is in divine order. Relax.
Let go.

I recommend that you write this week's affirmations, if such
a process appeals to you. I have developed a process which
is described in the book, "Affirmations: A Pathway to
Transformation" and in the article entitled, "Writing
Affirmations for Empowerment." This article is posted at
my Web site along with 40 others, http://www.mhmail.com
and then click on Articles by Jeanie.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent releasing and cleansing for Peace it would be
the affirmation for August 1, "I give myself permission to
release disharmony and conflict from the energy field. I
find it easy to say good bye to dis-ease and disease." It
is important to cooperate with this release and to affirm
that the process is effortless and easy.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

August 1:
I give myself permission to release disharmony and conflict
from the energy field. I find it easy to say good bye to
dis-ease and disease.

August 2:
I rescind obsolete vows of struggle and outdated beliefs in
separation.

August 3:
I let go of everything -- real or apparent -- that distracts
me from peace and harmony. I release resistance.

August 4:
I release memories that allowed belief in war and strife. I
let peaceful angels clear misconceptions and distortions
from my path.

August 5:
I cut negative bonds of attachment to disharmony, discord,
and dissonance.

August 6:
I dissolve thoughts that suggest there is no peace.

August 7:
I let Spirit (My Higher Self, God, My Spirit Guides, The One,
The Force, Infinite Source) purify any remaining thoughts
and feelings of separation.

Today is an opportunity for transformation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Of course, every day is an opportunity for transformation.
This last day of July is specifically dedicated to the
opportunity of transformation, to life made extraordinary
because everything is in a state of continuous change. Some
folks say they are afraid of change; some folks say they are
afraid of not changing. Turn your attention away from fear
and move through your life finding opportunities to grow and
learn.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you take a deep, refreshing and reflective breath,
consider what this month has meant to you with respect to
change and transformation. Please re-visit your over-
arching intention, review your written comments or journal
or diary, remember affirmations that stood out for you, etc.
Such reflections are a natural way to embody your
exploration and learning about transformation. If you have
not yet come to peace with the idea of everything being in
constant change, stay with us for another month!

ABOUT OUR NEXT THEME
Tomorrow is August, the month of peace on this DailyAffirm
Process. Please develop an over-arching intention about
peace. That is, formulate a statement that captures the
consciousness in which you wish to live in peace. Consider
what you desire to be able to say at the end of August in
response to these three questions: What did you learn about
peace? What do you desire to keep? What do you desire to
release?

I breathe transformation into every aspect of my life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Your breath is always with you. You breathe when you talk,
when you meditate, when you work, when you cry, when you
play. Y ou can empower your breath to draw clarity and peace
to you. Breathing in and breathing out, you become more
vibrant and balanced. You breathe in life and vitality, you
breathe out dead cells and waste. Life contains all forms
of transformation, including death. The more you can accept
death as a natural part of life -- as transformative -- the
more likely you are to be accepting of all faces and facets
of life.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Today, let your breath assist you in integrating
transformation and its many faces into your life. What do
you want to breathe in; what do you want to breathe out?
What do you want to receive; what do you want to release?
As you come more fully into the realization of your
wholeness, old paradigms die away. What is decaying today?
What needs to die today? When you know what must die,
consider your relationship to the dying thing and to the
process of dying. Will you grieve the death? Rejoice for
the thing that is dying? Applaud the life that has
transformed? Ignore the whole situation? Or respond in
some other way? You have many options. Choose. And choose
again.

Yes to Transformation! Yes, yes, yes.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
"Yes!" is such an affirmative word! Yes to life! Yes to
love! Yes to transformation! You say "yes" with words,
facial expressions, gestures, energy, and actions. You say
"yes" with your clothes, your business cards, your food
choices, and your homes. You say "yes" when you answer the
telephone, greet people on the street, and meet new friends
for the first time. You say "yes" to everything to which
you give your attention. You say "yes" even when you use
the word "no."

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
So, to what do you desire to say "yes"? The best way to say
"no" to something you do not want is to say "yes" to what
you do want. As you repeatedly acknowledge your preference
for what you want, you will find that more and more of what
you want comes to you for further refinement of choices.
You still get to choose, but the Universe has the capacity
to give you enormous variety. As you are learning to make
choices, you will be aware of many things you do not want;
as your consciousness lifts you become less aware of the
unwanted things and choose from among the enormous variety
of wanted things. Yes!

I act with purposeful awareness of transformation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
To welcome purposeful awareness into your life, you access
the intention of your actions knowingly . This intention is
a "place" in consciousness filled with the substance of love
and light which is the wellspring of creation. It is this
consciousness into which you dip when you create with high
intention. You can use this substance of creation
accidentally or naturally or purposefully. You get to
choose. You get to choose with each act. A conscious,
constant high intention feeds your every act, resulting in
personal fulfillment and Divine realization.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Today, consider the extent to which you choose to be
purposefully aware. Or identify a specific situation or
habit or issue about which you choose to be purposefully
aware. Watch yourself watching. Know and know that you
know. It is time to fully claim transformation as a power
in your life. Today, re-visit your over-arching intention
for transformation as you bring to a close this week of
working with acting/claiming affirmations.

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
This is the last of the Acting/Claiming Affirmations this
month. For the next three days, we focus on integrating and
embodying transformation. If you have been taking notes
throughout the month while exploring transformation, you may
want to review your notes during the next three days. Eject
anything that does not fit; more fully integrate anything
that you wish to keep. Experience transformation.
Experience transformation transform.

I let every act be an act of transformation. I show up one
hundred percent.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Whoa! 100%! What a commitment! Think of what it would be
like if you and everyone else in the world showed up 100%.
The world would be transformed in an instant! To show up
100% requires living right now in the moment -- not in the
past, not in the future. No regrets about what has or has
not been. No expectations or fears of what might or might
not be. Living right now! Every act is an act of
transformation. When you affirm this is so, you keep in the
flow of life.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Consider if there is something from the past that holds your
attention or keeps you from totally claiming your power.
Perhaps an old pattern of behavior? An unresolved
relationship? A disappointment? You cannot show up 100% if
you give your attention to those old things. Consider if
there is something about the future that keeps you from
claiming your power now. Perhaps a goal that you think will
bring you happiness when it is accomplished? A fear or
doubt or longing? You cannot show up 100% in the present
while you are giving your attention to concerns about the
future. Quickly identify if you have responses to these
questions, and then give your attention to what you want to
experience now. All your experiences happen in the now, the
ever-changing, ever-present now! Show up in its presence 100%!

I draw a circle of transformation to establish my world of
focus.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
A circle provides a container which helps you to define what
you want to invite into your world; it also helps you to
define your world. A circle of light composed of the energy
of transformation can create a circle which is far more
effective than a steel or brick wall. The substance you
hold in your energy field is the material you use to create
your experiences. If you are filled with anger, the circle
will be composed of anger; if you are filled with joy, the
circle will be composed of joy. Fear resonates with more
fear; love resonates with more love; joy resonates with more
joy. Your intention can evoke higher consciousness to
create the perfect circle.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Are the circles you have drawn to focus your world
attracting those things that you desire in your life? In
considering this question, you may see clearly the methods
you use that attract or oppose your life's desires. You may
find that you have established circles that keep out what
you want rather than letting it in. For example, you want
a loving relationship yet have an iron fence around you to
keep you from getting intimate. If so, just change the iron
fence to a circle of love. If you were in a consciousness
other than love when creating a previous circle, this
non-love circle can transform into a circle of the desired
substance. Then you can attract and live your heart's
desires.

I claim my transformed state of consciousness. I claim my
power.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
I find again and again that when folks CLAIM that their
state of consciousness has lifted, it lifts still further.
Claiming a state of higher consciousness is a powerful act.
Such a claim must be a conscious choice to walk with Spirit,
with enhanced awareness of Spiritual values such as love and
wisdom and freedom (to name only a few Spiritual values),
and NOT as a claim made by an arrogant ego. Arrogance is
not attractive nor uplifting. You must individually step
into the awareness of your magnificence; you are also part
of a collective, stepping into the awareness of the
magnificence of the whole. As you lift, others lift; as
others lift, you lift.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Today, look at your own style of claiming your power: Do
you TAKE it? Poke at it? Accept it grudgingly? Breathe it
in effortlessly? Experience it and then brush it off as if
it is not real? See it outside yourself? See it inside
yourself? Perhaps your style is not mentioned in this list.
If not, write your own description. The many situations in
which you find yourself may call for different styles, so
think about several situations as you work with this
exercise. However, do not disempower yourself by believing
THE SITUATION determines your style; instead, YOU determine
your style allowing variables from inside and outside
yourself to give you information. Then...... claim your
transformed state of consciousness. Claim your power.

As I act, I know that I am transforming in every cell of my
existence.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
On the surface, this affirmation may seem rather benign,
especially for an "acting/claiming" affirmation. However,
the realization that you are constantly changing helps you
to not get so stuck in patterns or believe that you are
unchangeable. When you feel that you are not making progress,
this affirmation assists you in realizing that you are not
really stuck, even when you appear to be. Everything is
always changing, including every cell in every part of your
life, in all life. This affirmation awakens your
consciousness as you act; it helps you to be more conscious
that you are conscious.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Take a look at a part of your life that appears NOT to be
changing -- something that feels stagnant or blocked.
Perhaps this is something about which you feel hopeless or
frustrated or just mildly irritated. As you identify this
subject, relax and open without any pressure to DO anything
right now. Notice. Feel the energy, feel the feelings.
Describe as clearly as possible the attributes of this
situation. Now, shift your attention to something that you
believe is moving freely and effortlessly. This may be a
healthy relationship or a rewarding job or a little piece
of your life or a memory of a past event. As you identify
this second subject, relax and open without any expectation
to DO anything right now. Notice. Feel the energy, feel the
feelings. Describe as clearly as possible the attributes of
this second subject. Now, transfer the energy and the
feelings of the second subject to the first one. Say
today's affirmation again.

Transformation energizes my actions, propelling me on my
path.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Gasoline/petrol energizes automobiles and other vehicles;
Spirit moving into form (trans-form-action) energizes your
actions. When you take care of your cars, you find and use
the products and services and practices that are most
appropriate so that you can have dependable transportation.
So, too, it is important to seek out the purity of Spirit
and other substances to propel your life. The culture
supports using toxins to move people (caffeine, drugs,
etc.), when all you truly need is Spirit to guide you to
proper nutrients and practices. Clients who have used
recreational drugs in the past often tell me that the
meditations I lead activate a grander "high" than they ever
experienced with drugs -- and, of course, without the
negative aftereffects. It is empowering to be propelled by
the purity of Spirit.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
If you are not currently practicing meditation on a daily
basis, I suggest that you start. Start where you are now.
If you currently meditate once a week, increase to three
times a week. If you currently meditate three times a week,
increase to every day, etc. Meditation allows you to
realize your oneness with the divine, to accept the purity
of Spirit. Hundreds of techniques work -- you only need one
that works for you long enough to know that you do not need
any technique at all. Select strategies that do not hurt
your vehicle -- not just the one with four wheels, but your
own physical body.

Make this a magical week-plus!


Greetings on the 4th week of July with the theme of
Transformation. During this fourth week we focus on Acting/
Claiming Affirmations, and the last days of the month we
focus on Integrating/Embodying Affirmations. Make this a
magical week-plus!

Read DailyAfirm on the Internet, with links to resources.

ABOUT ACTING/CLAIMING AFFIRMATIONS and TRANSFORMATION
This week's "acting and claiming" affirmations support you
in taking action and claiming your growth opportunities. It
is not always necessary that you take action in order to
transform -- indeed, you are transforming all the time! It
is very popular in the fields of Organization Development
and Personal Growth to say that "they/you/we will change
when they/you/we are ready." To which, I say a quick and
decisive, "Nonsense, they/you/we are changing all the time
and they/you/we do not always feel ready!" So the emphasis
of the week's affirmations is that transformation is movement.
The greater your willingness and readiness for acting and
claiming, the more you are able to catch the opportunity.
Now is the time to move from just talking about your dreams
and desires as unrealized phenomena, to walking with your
dreams and desires as an integral part of you.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Ask your inner self for clarity about the action you desire
to take this week in an area in which you are changing or
will be changing. Just giving your attention to a specific
area of transformation provides light and illumination for
that area. Out of your deeply-held high intention, take
action. Claim your power. Do it. Right now. And if your
action is to retreat or to be still -- do that decisively,
as well.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent acting and claiming for transformation it would
be the affirmation for July 27: "I let every act be an act
of transformation. I show up one hundred percent."
Affirming that you show up 100% is potent. So, maybe you
show up only 80% or 60%, even that can be powerful. Remember
that many people only show up 2%, maybe 17%. Sometimes you
do not show up at all! When you intend to show up 100%, you
are in your power in a way that enhances your life and the
lives of others.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

July 22:
Transformation energizes my actions, propelling me on my
path.

July 23:
As I act, I know that I am transforming in every cell of
my existence.

July 24:
I claim my transformed state of consciousness. I claim my
power.

July 25:
I manifest all things in association with divine
transformation acting through me.

July 26:
I draw a circle of transformation to establish my world of
focus.

July 27:
I let every act be an act of transformation. I show up one
hundred percent.

July 28:
I act with purposeful awareness of transformation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT INTEGRATING/EMBODYING AFFIRMATIONS and TRANSFORMATION
The affirmations in the final days of the month help you to
deepen your experience of empowered transformation by
integrating and embodying the chosen aspects of the theme.
Of course, the idea of integrating transformation is a bit
of a paradox, for as soon as you integrate one change, both
you and the change change! Take these three days to
integrate and embody the month's exploration of
transformation. Look at what you learned, savor what you
desire to keep, and let go of what you desire to release.
These are all aspects of the process of integration and
embodiment.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
So, what did you experience this month? What do you desire
to keep? What do you desire to release? Work with any or
all the affirmations for these three days. Review the whole
month's daily affirmations as you feel guided. Say yes to
your enthusiasm for life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

July 29:
Yes to Transformation! Yes, yes, yes!

July 30:
I breathe transformation into every aspect of my life.

July 31:
Today is an opportunity for transformation.

Transformation enhances all my thoughts and feelings.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
On this last day of the third week of July, take a deep,
collective breath to allow the energy of transformation to
permeate all your thoughts and feelings. This is an example
of a high intention about transformation. Today's
affirmation assists you in keeping your attention on
transformation in a positive way, which, of course, provides
unique experiences for you and each other individual
participating in this process.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
If you are one who sees energy, see the energy of
transformation weave its colors into each thought and
feeling that passes through or comes from you today. If you
are one who senses energy, sense the energy of
transformation as it flows into each thought and feeling
that passes through or comes from you today. If you are one
who imagines energy, imagine the energy of transformation
touching and blending with each thought and feeling that
passes through or comes from you today. If you have another
way of relating to energy, honor your way with an intention
or a thought or a feeling about the energy of transformation.

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
Tomorrow the Acting/Claiming Affirmations begin. Before
then, consider anything else that is relevant to you about
your relationship to transformation. Draw to you as much
clarity as possible about this theme before you affirm
actions and make claims, because to affirm change/
transformation can be very powerful.

I understand the meaning of transformation. Transformation
happens in small increments and in quantum leaps.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Likely, you understand first with your intellect or your
mental capacities. However, meaning which is understood
deeply is also physical, emotional, and spiritual. Other
words for aspects of life are: kinesthetic, psychological,
physiological, energetic, philosophical, etc. All of these,
for me, are somehow contained in the designations physical,
emotional, mental, and spiritual. The second sentence of
today's affirmation is a simple description of transformation
that helps you to honor its diversity. While you might agree
with me on a definition of "transformation," you are likely
to have many diverse stories about how it operates in your
life, since it operates in every part of life at all times.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
What is your DEEP meaning of "transformation"? Or, identify
the deep meaning of "change" if you prefer. You may find
that you want to replace the second sentence with another
that is closer to the meaning you identify or are in the
process of embodying. You may even find that the second
sentence is superfluous for you; if so, lop it off. If you
breathe in your intention for transformation, you may hear
its meaning whispered in your ear or feel its energy brush
across your face. Air opens understanding, as thoughts and
ideas and words and sound require air in order to be
transmitted. As you breathe in air, allow the meaning of
transformation to deepen.

I remember to transform. I remember who I Am. I Am
Transformation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
DailyAffirm continues with yesterday's thread of waking up
and remembering. The three sentences of today's affirmation
are different, yet provide a panorama of remembering and
transformation. The words capitalized are not mistakes, but
are carefully chosen to enrich the meanings of the sentences.
The "I Am" Presence is consciously evoked when you recognize
the deep meaning of these words, which often is buried in
the casual contraction, "I'm" or the simplified "I" or the
quickly said "I am." However, all these variations on "I AM"
evoke the power of creation, which intensifies and puts into
manifestation the idea that follows. Example: "I don't have
any money" is an act of creation; however, it creates having
no money and/or sends mixed messages to the Universe.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
QUESTIONS ABOUT I AM: What do you say after you say "I
am...."? Is this what you most want to manifest? When you
know the answer to this second question, say or write a
sentence starting with "I..." or "I am..." that reflects
your desired manifestation.

QUESTIONS ABOUT REMEMBERING: What do you most want to
remember? Your grandmother's smile? Facts for a test? A
significant other's birthday? That you are a Child of God?
The Truth of your presence on the planet? The touch of the
Presence? The divine whisper in your ear? Words to a song?
Each of these requires a different kind of remembering.

QUESTIONS ABOUT TRANSFORMATION: What is your intention
about transformation? What do you most want to transform?
What do you want to remember about transformation? Who are
you with respect to transformation?

My mission is to embrace transformation in the world. I
honor my own unique path to transformation as well as
everyone else's.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Even after you grasp the meaning of today's affirmation
intellectually, you still must work to embody its meaning
fully. You are constantly in a state of transformation
(moving through form). As a human, you transformed from
Spirit into matter, from Spirit into the physical plane,
usually losing the memory of this process. If you lose
this memory, you can regain it. You can wake up. You can
remember, remember Spirit, re-member with Spirit.
Remember you are Spirit.

You are experiencing your journey of awakening in your own
unique ways. You cloud the wonder and joy of this journey
when you judge, compare, blame, criticize, covet, and/or
when you feel victimized, unworthy, jealous, angry, resentful.
Your pathway to transformation (the subtitle of the book on
which these affirmations are based) is a unique agreement
between you and the Divine (God, Spirit, Higher
Consciousness, the Universe, Infinite Intelligence, the
Source).

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
So, what is YOUR unique path to transformation? First, feel
the mission of embracing transformation in the world. Next,
let go of the world -- everyone, everything outside yourself.
Then, let go of any additional resistance and turn inward to
honor your own unique path to transformation. What is this
path? What does it look like? What does it feel like? What
are the words that the Divine whispered in your ear that are
uniquely for/about you? When you hear the whisper, return
to be in the world in a more empowered way. More lovingly
accept your own unique path while you also more lovingly
accept others' unique paths.

High intention operates in the midst of change. Change
operates in the midst of high intention.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Today's affirmation has a circular, wavy motion: two
vibrations working together to create something different
from either distinct vibration. This affirmation provides a
container to assist in drawing to you transformation that is
for the highest good for all. High intention is, by
definition, the highest good for all. Holding such an
intention about change directs energy to create change that
reflects and serves all. You must, however, let go of the
belief that you have figured out the details of the highest
good from your human perspective. Your high intention opens
a space for Spirit to operate life's miracles.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Identify a project or situation that is in the midst of
change. (Of course, EVERYTHING is changing.) Choose
something that particularly has your attention at this time,
something that is in transition or something you desire to
change. Set a high intention; that is, make a statement
that represents the highest possible ideals about the
situation. It is NOT a statement about the results you want
to accomplish, although goals and objectives and deadlines
grow from the statement of intention. Goals are helpful to
set, of course, but IN ADDITION TO, not as a replacement
for a high intention. Here is an example to help you
distinguish between a goal and a high intention. A goal or
outcome or expectation of a meeting might be: "To reach a
decision about work schedules for the XYZ project." A high
intention for that same meeting might be: "For open and
honest communication for the highest good of all."

Do you have your statement of intention for your chosen
situation? Good. WRITE IT DOWN! Writing the statement
anchors the energy and gives you a reference point.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I deepen my awareness of the consciousness of transformation
from which my elegant actions spring.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The consciousness of transformation is powerful, it is
creation itself. Consciousness is the non-tangible substance
that creates the tangible, visible, physical world. When you
resonate with the consciousness of anything, you act in
accordance with that consciousness. When you dip into the
consciousness of violence, you act violently or you fight
against violence. When you dip into the consciousness of
mathematics, you access a body of knowledge that directs
your actions. When you dip into the consciousness of
transformation, you acquire awareness about change that
colors your actions. The use of the word "elegant" is, umm,
well, elegant. It depends greatly on your own consciousness
as to our interpretation of the word. The more deeply you
are focused on Spirit, the more aware you are that Everything
is elegant. E-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Today, be gentle with yourself as you consider these
questions: What do you see that is elegant as you move your
eyes or thoughts from this message to something else in your
room? What do you see or feel in yourself that is elegant?
What do you know today about elegance? What elegance do you
desire to manifest with the consciousness of transformation?
Today, FEEL elegant. Today, BE elegant. Be elegance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I know that spiritual transformation leads to the highest
good for all.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
You must decide the meaning of "spiritual" transformation for
you. If you define Spirit as divine and good, then you are
likely to agree that spiritual transformation is what you
desire. The "highest good for all" is a generic high
intention. Always perfect. And very helpful to keep at the
forefront of your consciousness to replace opinion or
attachment or judgment or resentment. This affirmation
acknowledges that Spirit knows the highest good for all.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Identify a situation you face today or this week, one which
challenges you or demands that you transcend the solutions
you have tried before with this situation. With the
situation clearly in your mind, state or write a high
intention. If the situation is your relationship with
another person, a high intention might be: "To communicate
honestly." If the situation is job-related, a high
intention might be: "To deepen my fulfillment at work." If
the situation is about any aspect of health, a high
intention might be: "To realize and rejoice in my excellent
health." After you are satisfied with your high intention,
add "for the highest good of all" or an equivalent phrase.

Make this a purposeful week!

Greetings on the 3rd week of July with the theme of
Transformation, with the focus on Being/Intending
Affirmations. Make this a purposeful week!

Remind yourself of your over-arching intention for
transformation.

ABOUT BEING/INTENDING AFFIRMATIONS and TRANSFORMATION
This week's affirmations, classified as "being and intending,"
escort you in your next step along the path. After clearing
out fears and other stuff during the first week of July and
opening to the idea of transformation in this previous week,
you now go deeper into the idea of intention and mission and
purpose and being. As you proceed through this week, the
initial over-arching intention may change (hmm, that is
appropriate) or you may change (even more appropriate) with
respect to the over-arching intention.

Explore your own higher purpose this week as you also more
fully embrace the purpose of transformation. Incidentally, I
like the idea of qualifying transformation with the adjective
"spiritual" although I recognize that not everyone is
comfortable with this qualifier.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
So here is a worthy question to direct your attention this
week: "Who am I?" If you prefer to work with a question
that someone asks you rather than one you ask yourself, the
question is: "Who are you?" Either question works,
although the former is a more powerful spiritual question.
Feel yourself opening to be in each moment as a being of
love and light. Just be.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent being and intending for Transformation it would
be the one for July 19: "I remember to transform. I
remember who I Am. I Am Transformation." To remember who I
Am is a deep realization of personal power. Just FEEL this
affirmation and all the others this week. Next week you get
to affirm stepping into your power.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

July 15:
I know that spiritual transformation leads to the highest
good for all.

July 16:
I deepen my awareness of the consciousness of transformation,
from which my elegant actions spring.

July 17:
High intention operates in the midst of change. Change
operates in the midst of high intention.

July 18:
My mission is to embrace transformation in the world. I
honor my own unique path to transformation as well as
everyone else's.

July 19:
I remember to transform. I remember who I Am. I Am
Transformation.

July 20:
I understand the meaning of transformation. Transformation
happens in small increments and in quantum leaps.

July 21:
Transformation enhances all my thoughts and feelings.

Make this a now day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am ready right now to live in empowered transformation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
You are ready, right? I often hear people say that they
are ready to live the good life, yet are not willing to be
what they seek. They want happiness, yet are not willing to
BE HAPPY right now! They expect happiness to come from
outside them -- puff! The knight in shining armor. The
beautiful princess. The perfect job. The money from the
lottery. Everything to MAKE them happy or empowered or
satisfied. Many people use affirmations and other
techniques to try to manipulate the Universe. However,
the world does not work that way. You must be right now
what ypu desire, because life takes place in the NOW, in the
present. To quote Mahatma Gandhi, "We must be the change
we wish to see in the world."

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Here is an exercise in the form of a series of questions.
When I have an interactive dialogue with a client, I can
usually get to the significant point in 2-3 questions. When
writing this exercise for so many people, I list more
questions than I ordinarily ask an individual.

(1) What do you most desire in life that you do not now have
or experience?
(2) Take a deep breath and go deeper within and again answer
question #1. (Your answer may be the same or different with
a second asking.)
(3) How do you expect you will feel when you have received
or experienced what you most desire? In other words, what
is the feeling that you associate with the fulfillment of
this desire?
(4) Is this feeling satisfying to you?
(5) If your answer to #4 is "yes," proceed to #6. If your
answer to #4 is "no," return to question #1 and repeat the
process until you have uncovered the real feelings that are
satisfying.
(6) Now that you have identified satisfying feelings, there
is nothing stopping you from feeling RIGHT NOW what you say
is satisfying to feel. You do not need to wait for an event
or condition to feel a feeling.
(7) Be/Feel what you desire. It is the feeling that draws
to you what you desire.

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
This is the last of the Receiving/Accepting Affirmations
this month. Tomorrow begins the Being/Intending affirmations
for Transformation. Before working with those affirmations,
I suggest that you re-visit the over-arching intention that
you set for this. This is an opportunity to dip into the
consciousness of your reason for being -- your life mission.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I accept change, expansion, peace, and love in all aspects
of my life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The gentleness of today's affirmation does not make it less
powerful than the assertive and action-oriented affirmations.
In order to live in harmony (or whatever you choose), you
must accept harmony (or whatever you choose) into your life.
Sometimes you might push away the very thing or things you
desire the most, for a myriad of reasons, logical and
illogical. Sometimes you do not recognize when the desired
manifestation has shown up in your life because you have a
fixed idea of the form it should take. So, today, breathe
out the shoulds. Accept change and expansion and peace and
love and all that you desire and need in your life.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
What do YOU most desire to accept in your life? Open to a
clear vision. If you can not see this vision in your mind's
eye, ask for a sign that you can understand or a word that
you can hear or a feeling that you can feel. You may find
that putting your hand on your chest near your heart reminds
you to be connected with your heart's desire. What do you
most desire to accept in your life? Ask, and allow the
Universe to respond to your request.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Transformation, you are my ever-changing friend. I am
ready to be with you as a partner.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Transformation truly is your friend. Sometimes this does not
seem to be so, especially when the transformation appears as
turmoil. But what would life be like without change!?! Wow,
that is a truly troublesome concept! No change means no
movement, no creativity, no life. Occasionally (such as
during a very stressful time) you may yearn for stillness;
however, you usually soon yearn for movement from the
stillness! Whenever you join with someone or something,
you are in a partnership. Envision a joyous partnership
with transformation, your friend in creativity and love and
relationships and dance and learning, and, well, everything.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As transformation comes to greet you today, say, "Hi,
friend!" Join with the transformation you feel and see and
hear. Join also with the transformation that is invisible.
When you are in an open partnership with transformation,
change will not sabotage you or do strange things to get
your attention. In the silence, let transformation speak
to you. In every movement, honor and respect your friend,
Transformation.

Make this a divine day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear God, allow me to see transformation in a way that I can
understand.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Sometimes you just do not get it. You may try and try to
understand, but do not. You may even try so much that life
is trying. When life is intensely frustrating or confusing,
you may fall to your knees in despair or pain, crying or
screaming for understanding. Understanding is more likely
to come to you with a moment of surrender than with long and
meticulous research. I have said all this to say: Remember
to fall to your knees in appreciation for life and
acknowledge the divine regularly, not just when you feel
desperate. You can enrich your life and enhance your
relationship with the divine when you make the divine your
first stop, not your last.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
In yesterday's affirmation, I suggested that you focus on
your definition of transformation. A definition is just ONE
aspect of understanding -- understanding through the mental
processes. Consider how to involve the divine in your quest
for knowing so that you enlarge your understanding of
transformation as a spiritual journey. Today, reflect on
what, specifically, you wish to understand or know about
transformation or about your own process of transformation
or about your relationship with the divine.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I allow empowering change to flow through me, expanding my
consciousness.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
When you think of change as a river, you are likely to image
it as something that can flow through you or something you
can flow upon. When you think of change as a contest or an
impossibility or an enemy, you are more likely to consider
the change as something to "get through" than something to
"flow through." A contest alerts you to accepting winners
and losers. An impossibility suggests you face a useless
venture or must struggle to overcome. An enemy prompts you
to clench your fists for fight or to use your feet for
flight. You have your own style, of course, with the
ability to choose from many options -- certainly more than
the options suggested. As you open, you allow for miracles.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
This is about 1/3 of the way through the month of July and
the theme of Transformation. Please spend a few minutes
considering your definition of transformation. You may want
to re-visit your over-arching intention to let a definition
flow from that. You may find that breaking the word
"transformation" into parts (trans-form-ation) gives you
further insights into the definition. As I said earlier in
the month (partly in jest), my definition for transformation
is a big word for big change. What more does it mean to
you? Are you open to miracles?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I receive goodness from the Universe. I accept constant
change of appearances and the loving constancy of Spirit.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The second sentence of this affirmation may be one of the
most important (yet potentially confusing) concepts about
change and transformation. "Appearances" exist in the human
world, a world in which manifestations are temporary.
Appearances have sensory qualities -- visual, auditory,
emotional, kinesthetic, olfactory, etc. The human world is
a dense world compared to Spirit, yet is also COMPOSED of
Spirit. Spirit is the constancy of love and light --
energies which are constantly creating more manifestations.
The Love of Spirit is unconditional love rather than the
emotional gushy love of infatuation or the lusty love of sex
or the scoring love of tennis. The Light of Spirit is the
Infinite Intelligence, which is always expanding. .

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Today is an appropriate day to play with the analogy of
positives and negatives in photography. If you have
recently developed a roll of film into photographs, you
might choose to see and touch them so that you have an
experiential learning. Using your imagination will, of
course, be adequate. Look at a photo to see that it is a
representation of the original -- flat, yes, but
recognizable, even if the photographer set the lens
improperly or stood too far away. Now, look at the negative
of this photo -- careful, just touch the edges. See how the
background becomes foreground, the foreground becomes
background. Whether you are looking at black and white or
color photography, this dynamic occurs. Your life comes
more into focus when you allow Spirit to be the foreground.

Make this a receptive day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I open to allow change to operate in my life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Of course, change is always operating in your life, whether
you are open to it or not! The affirmations this week
support you to allow rather than push -- for, forward, or
against. The expression "what you resist, persists" is so
true because what you give our attention to -- especially
vehemently -- expands. If an opportunity presents itself
that you choose not to accept, the best approach is to turn
your attention to an opportunity that you choose to accept.
If you say "no" vehemently to something you do not want,
you are in a state of resistance. You have a right to say
"no," and sometimes it is polite to acknowledge someone with
that little word, but the more gently you do it, the better.
You do not want to say "no" with such excitement that the
Universe interprets your fire to mean that you are adding
fuel to the idea. Remember, energy is energy. And,
attention is energy.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I suggest that this week you be attentive to the change you
desire to receive and the change you need to receive. These
may be one and the same, but not necessarily. If you keep
yourself focused on these two categories of change, you will
experience these changes, with less room in your life for
those changes you do NOT desire or need. Today, select one
area in your life you desire and/or need to change.
Tomorrow, also make a selection -- the same or another part
of your life. Then open. Just open. Do not try to MAKE
SOMETHING HAPPEN. Just allow the change to come into your
experience. Continue this through the seven days of working
with the receiving/accepting affirmations.

Make this an opening week!

Greetings on the 2nd week of July with the theme of
Transformation. During this second week we focus on
Receiving/Accepting Affirmations. Make this an opening
week!

Remind yourself of your over-arching intention for
transformation.

ABOUT RECEIVING/ACCEPTING AFFIRMATIONS and TRANSFORMATION
Opening to receive and accept transformation requires that
you allow the unknown to happen. My empowerment consulting
work focuses on planned change; it also focuses on unplanned
change! Even planned change involves a considerable amount
of unplanned change. As resistance, blockages, and fears --
the stuff you focused on releasing last week -- dissolve or
at least lessen, you can more easily open. But even if you
still have some resistance, blockages, and fears, you can
open to receive what you want. You cannot wait to be
resistance-free to receive gifts from the Universe!
Everything works together.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you work with the affirmations this week, consider the
extent to which you are open to change, and how you are open.
I do not suggest that you become overly preoccupied with
analyzing your openness to change, just more aware than you
ordinarily are. If you are sensitive to energy, you may
want to do this energetically; that is, consider the extent
to which you notice how energy flows through you as you
face or consider a certain issue.

Here are three examples using incoming telephone calls as a
vehicle for identifying sensory, emotional, and energetic
data. (1) The caller is someone with whom you have a highly
toxic relationship. Your throat tightens and you feel hot
in the solar plexus. Your energy feels blocked. (2) The
caller is someone you have been trying to reach for three
days but you keep missing each other. You are really
pleased to have connected and a smile crosses your face.
Your energy feels smooth and tingling. (3) The caller
tells you grand news. You are excited, almost speechless.
Your energy is smooth and electric.

Of course, you will have your own reactions and descriptions.
The more often you practice describing your responses in
ways like these, the more precise and useful will be your
descriptions. Such an exercise fine-tunes your awareness so
that you can use energetic information to tell you when to
be open and when to be cautious. Being too open in a highly
toxic situation is as detrimental as being too closed in a
safe and loving situation.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent receiving and accepting for Transformation it
would be the affirmation for July 11: "Dear God, allow me
to see transformation in a way that I can understand." It
is really a prayer asking the Universe (God, the Divine,
Infinite Source, All That Is) to show us transformation in a
way that is understandable to us.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

July 8:
I open to allow change to operate in my life.

July 9:
I receive goodness from the Universe. I accept constant
change of appearances and the loving constancy of Spirit.

July 10:
I allow empowering change to flow through me, expanding my
consciousness.

July 11:
Dear God, allow me to see transformation in a way that I can
understand.

July 12:
Transformation, you are my ever-changing friend. I am ready
to be with you as a partner.

July 13:
I accept change, expansion, peace, and love in all aspects
of my life.

July 14:
I am ready right now to live in empowered transformation.

I let Spirit (My Higher Self, God, My Spirit Guides, The One,
The Force, Infinite Source) purify any remaining thoughts
and feelings of despair or ignorance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Call forth Infinite Intelligence to handle what you may have
missed during this week of cleaning and clearing. You may
have hidden pockets of resistance; give up the resistance to
Spirit. Spirit can find and clear darkness hidden from you
and can transmute it for you so that you do not have to
carry it any longer. Trust the process as you allow the
purification to be complete in the most appropriate way for
you.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Select your preferred name for higher consciousness for
today's affirmation. After you have invited Spirit to
purify you, you may find that a brief meditation lifts you
higher. So many methods for meditation are possible --
there is not just one approach, though there may be one way
that works best for you. Meditation is the realization of
the divine.

Transformation. Today is an appropriate day to cleanse your
home or office, to empty trash at all levels: physical,
emotional, mental, and spiritual. After emptying out, there
is more room to receive. You may also want to re-visit your
over-arching intention for transformation. Tomorrow we
begin our focus on receiving and accepting transformation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I turn my attention from thoughts that suggest there is no
hope for positive change. I turn my attention to something
that pleases me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Many thoughts and images and ideas existing in society
suggest or even preach hopelessness. Some people just dare
not hope. Hopelessness is flashed across television and
movie screens, displayed in the news, and expressed in casual
conversations. Joyous, vivacious, positive persons give
gifts to the world just by showing up! Joy itself dissolves
fear and hopelessness. You cannot convince a hopeless
person to have hope. You can, however, live in a positive
state of consciousness, demonstrating love which inspires
hope for those who have believed there is no hope for
positive change. Hopelessness -- no matter where it exists
-- signals where to put your light. (Incidentally,
DailyAffirm explores the theme of Hope in January.)

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
You personally may not be giving your attention to thoughts
and beliefs that there is no hope for positive change. If
you do not, let today's assignment be that you stay
attentive to those thoughts that suggest there is hope for
positive change. It is a matter of choice where you place
your attention. Since life is a series of ever-changing
motion, you choose the focus of attention again and again
and again.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I cut negative bonds of attachment to the past. I untie the
fears of the future.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Today, DailyAffirm focuses again on releasing fears. Notice
that there are two parts of that focus: (1) releasing and
(2) fears. You will find it more empowering this week to
give more attention to the releasing process than to the
specifics of what you are releasing. Find a way to make
this playful. Bonds of negative attachment can be like
threads, strings, ropes, rods, or wires. The condition of
the negative bonds is variable: fibrous, rusty, twisted,
frayed, fragile, tough, heavy, tight, thin, loose, rigid,
etc. In your mindís eye, you can cut the negative bonds in
an instant. Positive bonds remain intact.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
To what are you negatively attached? a person? a habit?
food? activity? inactivity? a substance? an idea? a
misconception? a fear? nothing? Dare to look, but do not
stay there long. During this week you have a considerable
amount of energy available to release negative attachments.
Ask the angels to provide you with the appropriate cutting
instrument. Or ask them to perform the energetic surgery
while you work or sleep. And, of course, if you wish to
remain negatively attached to something or someone, you have
the choice. I encourage you to make the choice consciously.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I release memories that allowed fear of change. These
memories are transmuted as I walk on the path with the Angel
of Transformation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Memories are experiences from the past that stay in your
energy field at some level of consciousness. Sometimes these
memories teach you to fear -- to fear change, to fear not
changing, to fear fear, to fear.... The growth opportunity
is to let go of the fear. Sometimes you may get distracted
by the dilemma of "to change or not to change." But, that
is not the question. (Apologies to Shakespeare.) The
question today is: How do you let go of the fear (which you
may define either as the object of fear or the fear as an
emotion)? While there are many empowering answers to this
question, here is my favorite: shift your attention from the
fear to something that feels better. Feel the change in you.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Your assignment today (if you choose to accept it) is to
give your fear of changing or fear of not changing to the
Angel of Transformation. Remember that you can not hurt
this powerful being with this fear. Imagine what your life
would be like if you were without fear of changing or fear
of not changing. The useful aspect of fear is to get your
attention so that you act. Physiological changes take place
in your body to gear you up for "fight or flight." If,
however, you have held onto fear instead of releasing it
through physical movement, you store it. Unstore it! Give
it to the Angel of Transformation. That release will
empower you to develop a creative relationship with
transformation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I let go of everything that impedes transformation. I no
longer compare my progress or process with anyone else's.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
To let go of everything that impedes your transformation does
not require that you know precisely what you are releasing.
Trying to figure everything out is one of the most effective
ways I know to impede your transformation! Your life's
journey is a private contract between you and yourself. It
is sometimes hard to remember this Truth when you are taught
to compare and measure and evaluate and criticize and
compete. No matter what I might say here on DailyAffirm as
a Spiritual Truth, the reality of practical life may demand
that you compare and measure and evaluate and criticize and
compete. I encourage you to let go of these practices in
your spiritual life. When a critical mass within your
circle of friends embodies this idea, you will more easily
apply this principle to everyday life.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
What is your spiritual/divine contract? Great question,
right? Having even an inkling of this is helpful in further
letting go of anything that impedes your progress. As you
ask yourself this question, try not to get frustrated by not
having a slick or finite answer. This single question is a
powerful one you can ask many times each day; many answers
may be appropriate over time in different situations. If
you find yourself in a conflict with another person, ask
yourself what the spiritual/divine contract is between the
two of you. As you begin a new project, ask yourself what
the spiritual/divine contract is in relation to the project.
What is your spiritual/divine contract for today?

Make this a present day!




~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I rescind obsolete and limiting beliefs about struggle,
sacrifice, poverty, and unworthiness.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Obsolete limiting beliefs are commitments from the past
which are now outdated and non-current. Statements relevant
to the past which are outmoded in the present can hold you
in limitation now and in the future. Declarations made by
your ancestors are not relevant to your current life unless
you commit to them. Religious, marital, cultural, and casual
statements are often made "forever," which is a very long
time. Here are some examples: RELIGIOUS: Beliefs of
poverty and celibacy. MARITAL: "until death do us part."
CULTURAL/FAMILY: "We will always remain silent about _____."
CASUAL: "I'll never do/say ____ again." Outdated beliefs
can be neutralized -- one method is to rescind them using
today's affirmation. Over the years, I have given this
affirmation or some variation of it to MANY clients in one-
on-one sessions and to participants in workshops. It has
brought tears to many eyes with the realization that certain
vows have held people in limitation, even though the
statements are no longer relevant.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Are you limited by a thought from the past? If you have
done a lot of personal growth work and still feel stuck or
confused, perhaps an outmoded thought needs to be
neutralized. If you have an unrealistic fear that seems not
to have an explanation in the events of this lifetime,
perhaps an obsolete thought needs to be rescinded. You need
not know precisely the thought or past circumstances or
source of your current limitation to benefit from this
affirmation. Feel free to edit the affirmation if other
concepts of limitation or distortion need to be rescinded.
Do not overdo this concept -- if this resonates with you,
work with the appropriate obsolete thought quickly and move
on with your life. If you feel old thoughts of limitation
are not operating in your life, celebrate!

Greetings on the 1st day of July with the theme of
Transformation. This is a Releasing/Cleansing Affirmatiwon
in the first week of the month. Make this an effortless day!

ABOUT THE OVER-ARCHING INTENTION
If you have not already done so, please identify your over-
arching intention for Transformation. That is, develop a
statement that guides you in the exploration and embodiment
of transformation. Intention is the energy or consciousness
from which actions emerge. If you are uncertain how to write
this intention, just make an attempt. Keep it simple. You
have 31 days to work with the intention and the theme, so
let your statement change and deepen. Here are a few
suggestions for statements of intention about the theme of
Transformation: *To be in the flow of life. *To drop the
old for the new gracefully. *To change/transform from the
inside out. *To transform my human consciousness to my
higher-self consciousness.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I give myself permission to release ignorance and jealousy
from every layer of the energy field. The release is
effortless and joyful.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
I developed this affirmation over a period of several years,
with input from clients and workshop participants. Here are
the principles:
(1) You give yourself permission to clear (very important!);
(2) You release whatever gets in the way of what you desire;
(3) You clear every layer and level so that the "stuff" does
not just release from your weakest spot causing dis-ease;
(4) You do all the above effortlessly.

And since you have just spent a whole month exploring joy,
today claim that your process be joyful.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I have just given you the formula for today's affirmation.
Now comes more permission: tinker with the affirmation to
make it work for you. If "ignorance" and "jealousy" are not
what you need to release, put in the proper ideas, for
example: fear... anger... resentment. If "energy field"
has little meaning for you, use another phrase, for example:
"every aspect of my being" or "every part of me." Make this
powerful affirmation work for you.

I recommend that you write today and tomorrow's affirmations.
I have developed a process which is described in the book,
"Affirmations: A Pathway to Transformation" and in an article
entitled, "Writing Affirmations for Empowerment." This

ABOUT RELEASING/CLEANSING AFFIRMATIONS and TRANSFORMATION
This is a week for cleansing and clearing anything that
interferes with transformation or change. As a longtime
consultant for managing change in many settings, I have
observed an incredibly creative variety of methods people
employ to resist change. Some methods are obvious to all,
others are not so obvious. To be authentic to your values,
you must sometimes resist certain change ó an act that
helps you become clearer about your own true values or
desires. However, to resist change just because it is
change thwarts the creative process. And to resist changing
yourself when you want your circumstances to improve is
absurd. Everything on the earth plane changes, everything.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I encourage you to recognize your own style for resisting
change. Do you get sick? Do you procrastinate? Do you
distract yourself? Do you become creative in other areas?
Do you sleep? Do you toss and turn instead of sleeping? Do
you get grumpy? Please be kind to yourself as you ask these
questions. These questions are designed to open you to
possibilities and to a greater awareness of your natural
processes rather than to fix blame or imply you are wrong.
Be in the flow, as you transform your thinking about
transformation.

I recommend that you write this week's affirmations. I
have developed a process which is described in the book,
"Affirmations: A Pathway to Transformation" and in an article
entitled, "Writing Affirmations for Empowerment." As those
who have been participating know, this article is posted at
my Web site along with about 40 others, http://www.mhmail.com
and then click on Articles by Jeanie.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to write the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent releasing and cleansing for Transformation it
would be "I release the fear of change." It is the fear
about change (or the fear about NOT changing) that is
debilitating, rather than the change itself. I also want to
point out the affirmation for July 2, which I call the "vows
of limitation" affirmation. Obsolete (ancestral, cultural,
religious, marital) vows can keep us stuck in outdated
patterns, in great resistance to change.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

July 1:
I give myself permission to release ignorance and jealousy
from every layer of the energy field. The release is
effortless and joyful.

July 2:
I rescind obsolete vows of struggle, sacrifice, poverty, and
unworthiness.

July 3:
I let go of everything that impedes transformation. I no
longer compare my progress or process with anyone else's.

July 4:
I release memories that allowed fear of change. The
memories are transmuted as I walk on the path with the Angel
of Transformation.

July 5:
I cut negative bonds of attachment to the past. I untie the
fears of the future.

July 6:
I turn my attention from thoughts that suggest there is no
hope for positive change. I turn my attention to something
that pleases me.

July 7:
I let Spirit (My Higher Self, God, My Spirit Guides, The One,
The Force, Infinite Source) purify any remaining thoughts
and feelings of despair or ignorance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today is an opportunity for joy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Truly, every day is an opportunity for joy. DailyAffirm
names this last day of June as a special opportunity for joy.
When you declare an opportunity, you open a space for joy to
show up. Here is a quotation to end this theme: "Where
there is joy there is creation. Where there is no joy there
is no creation: know the nature of joy." -- Upanishads
[c. B.C. 800]

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I encourage you to take some time today to review your
month's exploration of joy, which has, of course, included
some non-joy. Make notes (mentally or in your computer or
on paper) about your progress. Identify what you need to do
to bring closure to the theme of joy for you. Remind
yourself what it feels like to live in the consciousness of joy.

ABOUT OUR NEXT THEME
Tomorrow is a new day. A new month. A new theme. The
theme is "Transformation." This is a big word for big
change. What does it mean to you? Identify your over-
arching intention. That is, what intention do you wish to
hold with respect to transformation? Here are a few
examples intended to inspire, not limit you: "To be in the
flow of life." "To drop the old for the new gracefully."
"To change/transform from the inside out." "To transform my
human consciousness to my higher self consciousness."

Make this an integrative day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I integrate joy into my life with every breath I breathe.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Your breath is always with you. And you take many breaths
each day. One in, paired with one out. Followed by another
breath in and out. Some breaths may be shallow; others, deep.
Some breaths may be relaxed; others, strained. When you
embrace the idea of this wonderful affirmation, you use your
breath to integrate and embody joy. In my guided meditations
I often say, "breathe in light and breathe out anything
unlike the light." And I say many other variations, for
example, "breathe in joy, breathe out non-joy." Breathe in
what you desire to feel, breathe out what you do not need or
desire. Every breath gives you an opportunity to embody joy.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Do you have two minutes? Just two. Good. Take a long,
deep breath that clears you with the out-breath and opens
you with the in-breath. Very good. Now relax. Slow down.
Identify one issue or project or relationship -- something
that you have been focusing on this month. Close your eyes
for a few seconds if that helps you to identify a relevant
subject. Continue to breathe deeply. Breathe light into this
subject; breathe out heaviness. Breathe in joy; breathe out
non-joy. Continue to relax and integrate joy and embody
light. When your two minutes have passed, congratulate
yourself for receiving this gift of joyful relaxation.

Make this a purposeful day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I act with purposeful awareness of joy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
All this month, you have been building up to be able to say
and believe today's affirmation. To be purposefully aware
of joy, you must sometimes put aside hardship and give your
attention to joy. Of course, there are times when you must
give your attention to managing hardship. When you are in a
mature state of consciousness, you know when to do what. It
is important that you not use either hardship or managing
hardship as an excuse to push aside joy. Today, act with
joy while you are aware of both your actions and your joy.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
To what are you giving your attention today? What are the
actions? What is the consciousness from which you act?
Decide. If you make an intentional and purposeful decision,
you are more likely to be aware of that which you truly
desire to be aware. What more do you need or want to
accomplish with respect to joy? Tomorrow and the next day,
the affirmations help you to embody and integrate joy.
Enjoy in joy.

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
Tomorrow the Integrating/Embodying affirmations begin.
Today is a good day to check for a final action you might
want to take to demonstrate joy. Of course, each day
forward you might want to claim and demonstrate joy. A
re-visit of your over-arching intention for this month also
allows you to integrate more fully all that you are experiencing.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I let every act be an act of joy. I show up to tell my
joyous truth.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
You can label any event or action whatever you desire to
label it. You can call an act "difficult" or "wonderful" or
"long" or "simple" or any number of other possibilities. A
name or label is a powerful means for orienting you to a
thing or a person. So, with this in mind, today name every
act an act of joy. The second sentence of this affirmation
is also powerful. When you show up to tell the truth, you
are in your power. Sometimes the truth seems joyous,
sometimes not. But from the highest perspective, the Truth
is always joyous.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Take a moment before you finish reading today's message to
consider the various acts you will perform today. Can you
call them joyous? If you say an enthusiastic "yes" -- bravo.
If you say a hesitant "maybe" -- what would stretch you into
the enthusiastic yes? If you say a resounding "no" to the
original question, what work do you need to do on yourself
to move your answer to the hesitant maybe or an enthusiastic
yes? Remember all needs for change in your life are
indications of needs for change in YOUR consciousness. Just
show up and tell your joyous truth.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 I draw a circle of joy to establish who I am.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION A circle has no beginning and no end. When you give your attention to the energy of joy, you create a space that helps you to focus more clearly on what you want. Your circle establishes how near or far you are willing for something or someone to come to you. Clear boundaries are essential for your self-awareness and development. However, if they are too rigid, they can keep out what you want, so fill your circle with joy.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS Today, look at your circle of joy. Is it round or irregular? Is it solid or wobbly? Is it permeable or impermeable? Is it flexible or rigid? Is it simple or complex? The more you can describe your circle of joy, the more you can access it if you find yourself in a distressful situation, appearing to have lost the awareness of oneness or contact with joy. When you are in a joyous and enlightened consciousness, it is important to notice the qualities or components of this consciousness. Noticing characteristics can help you to more easily find your way back, like sprinkling bread crumbs (although, personally, I'd rather leave less edible markers because my bird friends are likely to think I have left the bread for them).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I manifest all things in association with joy.
 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION To "manifest" means to show or reveal or demonstrate plainly. It also means to be evidence of or to prove. You manifest physical reality from non-physical reality (Spirit). Joy is a powerful energy available to you to propel your desires into manifestation. Often there is a fear associated with a desire, especially an unrealized desire. Fear is also a powerful energy which propels manifestation, but manifestation of those things you most fear, unless you move through the fear to discover its positive opposite.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS What do you most desire? What do you most fear? Let these be companion questions today (and try not to fear either the question or the answers that may surface). As you identify a desire, ask yourself if a fear operates amidst the desire. If there is no fear, so be it and bravo -- you will soon manifest what you desire. If there is a fear, become acquainted with the fear as an emotion. Ask the fear what it needs to tell you, as succinctly and quickly as possible. Let the fear be your friend, with whom you can communicate openly and honestly.

Make this an empowering day!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I claim my joy. I claim my power in all I do.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION I use the word "claim" to suggest action, not to suggest grabbing. When you are grabbing or taking, you are not in your true power. You may look powerful to yourself or to others when you grab. You may even feel powerful, at least temporarily, when you grab. This kind of "power" is short- lived, however. It is force. When you claim joy from inside yourself, you are empowered. When you are truly empowered, you do not grab or hit or blame or ridicule or complain. These are the actions of powerlessness. The power that is True Power equals empowerment.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS Here are two situations to recall:

(1) Remember a time when you felt powerful because you took or grabbed something from someone else. This may be a physical thing, air time in a conversation, a job, or an idea. Now, remember just before the grabbing (be honest), how did you feel? You felt dis- empowered, didn't you? Or perhaps not quite disempowered, but certainly not truly empowered.
(2) Remember a time when you felt powerful from the inside. Nothing that anyone said or did could change that feeling. Perhaps eventually you lost this, but right now, remember that time of TRUE unshakable empowerment. Of these memories, (1) or (2) which do you prefer to claim? Which do you prefer to live? It is your choice.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I act with joy in my heart. I speak with joy on my lips. I walk with joy in my feet. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION So many persons can talk about the idea of joy or some other concept like honesty or integrity or freedom, yet they find that truly living the idea is a challenge. To speak platitudes about joy is not enough. To repeatedly say you believe in joy is not enough. You must be the joy you talk about. You do not need to wait for anything. You are joy now! You are here to live in joy. To claim joy, place your heart and lips and feet all in alignment with joy. ABOUT YOUR PROCESS This is a "walk your talk" affirmation. If you have difficulty experiencing joy, consider some of the following questions. What do joyous people say? What do joyous people look like? How do joyous people walk? How do joyous people touch others? What do joyous people think about? What do joyous people laugh about? To what do joyous people say "yes"? Are YOU one of the joyous ones? If you are, hurray! If you are not, no need to wait -- start today. Walk this talk.

Make this an energizing day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Joy energizes my actions. I re-negotiate my contract with
the Universe to advance along my path joyously.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
"Energize" is such a zingy word. It makes my shoulders lift
up and my feet tingle to its vibration. Joy is energy. You
are advancing along your path even though sometimes you may
feel that you are stuck or blocked. It is an incredibly
empowering concept to recognize that you create your own
experiences. This is scary for some people, especially
those who find themselves in circumstances they do not like!
Please note that it is not an accusation, but rather an
encouragement that if you do not like where/how/what you
are, you can change it. I think that is one of the most
empowering concepts you can embrace.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
You already know the suggestion I am going to make: (re)view
or (re)negotiate your contract with the Universe. Contracts
are usually most effective in writing, but can be verbal or
in one's head and heart. Gather your helpers in Spirit:
Spirit guides, angels, other beings of light. Honor your
own belief systems as you clearly state your desires to your
spiritual committee. For example, if you are uncomfortable
in a relationship, clarify what assists you in living more
joyously. If you feel overwhelmed in your job, describe the
changes that would help you feel more aligned with your
inner joy. You get the idea. Warning: Do not get trapped
into believing that something outside yourself will bring
you joy. The purpose of your contract is to make adjustments
(or affirm you like your circumstances) so that you feel a
greater alignment with the joy from inside yourself.

Make this a powerful

Greetings on the 4th week of June with the theme of Joy.
During this fourth week we focus on Acting/Claiming
Affirmations, and the last days of the month we focus on
Integrating/Embodying Affirmations. Make this a powerful
week-plus!

ABOUT ACTING/CLAIMING AFFIRMATIONS and JOY
This week's affirmations help you to step out in joy and
with joy. You have been clearing yourself and readying
yourself for these outward expressions and manifestations.
If you are not quite ready to ACT from the consciousness of
joy, then the better choice is to retreat or stand still.
Acting from non-joy is detrimental. Focusing on these
affirmations keeps your attention on joy and can make you
more ready to claim joy later if you are not quite ready now.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Here is a suggestion for working with this week's affirma-
tions. Each time you act, ask yourself, "Am I in the
consciousness of joy?" Of course, you "act" hundreds of
times a day. It may seem unreasonable to you to consider
asking yourself "Am I in the consciousness of joy?" hundreds
of times a day. Yet, think about it.... you ARE asking
yourself SOMETHING, so you might as well enhance your
awareness with questions such as, "Am I in the conscious-
ness of joy?" Or, "How can I act in the consciousness of
joy?" Some of the questions you ordinarily ask yourself may
be disempowering, for example, "What have I done wrong this
time?" Or neutral, for example, "I wonder who that is (on
the phone or at the door)?" Or empowering, "Is this worthy
of my attention?" Let the questions you ask yourself this
week be about manifesting with joy.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
Usually I find it easy to select the definitive affirmation
for the week -- or I make up a new one! This week
challenges me because I love how most seem to embody so many
of the aspects of the ideas of acting and claiming joy. So
I select the one which represents an idea that I have
experienced many folks are working on right now: "I draw a
circle of joy to establish who I am." -- the affirmation for
June 26.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

June 22:
Joy energizes my actions. I re-negotiate my contract with
the Universe to advance along my path joyously.

June 23:
I act with joy in my heart. I speak with joy on my lips. I
walk with joy in my feet.

June 24:
I claim my joy. I claim my power in all I do.

June 25:
I manifest all things in association with joy.

June 26:
I draw a circle of joy to establish who I am.

June 27:
I let every act be an act of joy. I show up to tell my
joyous truth.

June 28:
I act with purposeful awareness of joy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT INTEGRATING/EMBODYING AFFIRMATIONS and JOY
I love the idea of integrating learnings and experiences.
I jokingly say that I developed this fifth category of
affirmations because I had to do something with those
remaining days of the month, but the truth is that this
concept of integration is essential and not an afterthought.
It is often missed. It is important to honor the in-breath
as much as the out-breath. One aspect of the process of
integration is to let go of anything you do not need during
or after an experience while you keep, use, and experience
what you desire.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you say "yes to joy" and open to let every situation be
an opportunity for joy to express, give yourself permission
to release any ideas that do not resonate for you. Be as
specific as you can. At the same time you sort through the
thoughts and feelings to release, allow your consciousness
to embody all those thoughts and feelings you wish to keep.
If you have been journaling about the affirmations or if you
have completed other exercises, review those. Clean up your
email files, etc.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

June 29:
I integrate joy into my life with every breath I breathe.

June 30:
Today is an opportunity for joy.

Make this a thoughtful day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Joy enhances all my thoughts and feelings.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The essence of this week's process is embodied in this last
of the Being/Intending affirmations. Joy that permeates your
thoughts and feelings comes from within you. While you are
learning to be joyful, you might remember joy as an
afterthought or an add-on. However, true joy is an energy
in which you live and move and have your being. When your
thoughts and feelings are bathed in joy, they are
transformed. And so are you.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I encourage you to re-visit your over-arching intention
today, since it is likely to have deepened as a result of
working with Being/Intending affirmations all week. Change
it or embody it more deeply or define it more clearly or
just leave it alone. If you do this with the expectancy of
joy, you will find the process enlightening.

related to the daily affirmations. Today, I want to list

Make this a meaningful day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I understand the meaning of joy. I know that joy is a deep
freedom.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
I have been reflecting on the meaning of "deep freedom" and
how that might compare with just "freedom." Freedom is
often thought of as "freedom from," for example, freedom
from an unhappy relationship or dissatisfying job or slavery
or oppression. The joy of such "freedom from" is often
short-lived, likely followed by recreating bondage in either
similar or different forms. By "deep freedom" I am
attempting to convey the DEPTH of freedom that is possible
when you live in joy, a joy that comes from deep within you
regardless of the outer circumstances or life dramas or
relationships with others. (Incidentally, DailyAffirm
explores the theme of freedom in October.)

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
What is the true meaning of joy for YOU? And if you define
joy as a freedom, is it "freedom from" or "freedom to"?
Through what experiences have you gained your understanding
of the meaning of joy? I suggest you take a few minutes to
write -- preferably stream of consciousness writing -- about
the meaning of joy. Let the energy of joy bubble up to
teach you its deep meaning. Nothing I nor anyone else can
say can teach you as much as you can learn from clear
listening deep within you.

Make this a memorable day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I remember joy. I remember who I Am. I am alive with the
expectancy of joy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Each sentence in this affirmation presents a different
nuance about remembering joy and being joyful. I like the
rhythm of all three. I also like the rhythm and meaning of
each one, worthy of exploration for many days, gosh, many
years! This remembrance that you affirm today is more than
remembering historical events, it activates memory at the
core of your soul. I Am that I Am.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Consider what it means to remember joy. Re-member means to
reconnect, to be associated with a body. When you consider
what it means to re-member joy as a consciousness, you
reconnect with a body of consciousness. As you say today's
affirmation, FEEL the buoyant resonance of the word
"expectancy." Compare this resonance with the vibration
(feelings, senses, sounds) of the word "expectation," which
is often heavy pavement on the road to disappointment. Let
expectancy lift you up to the possibilities; let expectancy
help you to feel the aliveness of joy.

Celebrate Your Little Victories Too



------------------------------
Today's Empowering Quote
------------------------------

"One great difference between a wise man and a fool is, the
former only wishes for what he may possibly obtain; the
latter desires impossibilities."
--Democritus

------------------------------
Today's Empowering Question
------------------------------

"What can I do today that will get me closer to my larger
ambition?"

------------------------------
Today's Fast Session
------------------------------

It is your right as a living human being to set a goal, be
able to work for it and achieve it.

One reason most people don't reach their ambitions is that
they fail to set small milestone goals; weekly, daily,
hourly.

To use the baseball analogy, you can score a lot of runs
by doing nothing except hitting singles. A home run gets
the biggest applause, but you can't reach your outcomes by
only swinging for the fence.

I was able to rise up from years of failure by giving
myself daily and hourly goals.

Sexy? Hardly.

Always fun? Not really.

But they were effective. Partly because every day I could
look back and see that I had accomplished the tasks I had
set forth for the day... which, by the way, tied in to my
bigger goals.

Now that's sexy.

You simply can't reach a big goal without lots of little
tasks that take you down the road to reaching it.

If you just internalize this one thing, you'll be able to
conquer bad habits that heretofore have beaten you bloody.

If you want to stop smoking or overeating, for example,
quit for an hour. If you accomplish that, you have
something for your Victory Log. Then do another hour.

Of course, it CAN be more complicated than that.

Maybe you don't feel particularly worthy to join the ranks
of the non-smokers and thin people of the world. That's a
self-image issue. But if you want to get to it the fastest
way, set a goal each hour.

If you do that, you can achieve 16 goals per day in your
waking hours and get on a tremendous roll. If you've never
gotten that kind of momentum going, it's a high I can't
fully describe. You've got to experience it yourself. I
smoked for nearly 20 years, nearly 10 of those at about a
pack and a half a day. And it's a minute by minute fight
until you win, not a daily fight.

Set some small, more easily achievable goals and see how
easy it is compared to looking at some big unimaginable
mountain you want to climb.

Remember, break things down in bite-sized chunks and you
can do anything you want...

Anything.

If you want to change your life fast, even though it might
seem like it's slow, then take the statements below, put
them on index cards and read them 3 times/day. Morning,
noon and just before you close your eyes at night.

They'll seep into your consciousness. And since you'll be
saying them so often, you'll soon begin to believe them.
That's how most beliefs start. Spaced repetition of thought.
Your attitudes will then positively change your emotions,
and you'll be compelled to do more... And you'll love it.

If you own Think Right Now for Windows, just paste them
into the appropriate file or make a new one -AND read them
three times per day. Think Right Now For Windows will help
put this re-scripting in overdrive.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

High intention operates in the midst of joy. Joy operates
in the midst of high intention.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This affirmation is effective when using either or both
sentences. Joy is an energy that makes the environment more
fertile for high intention. High intention is a consciousness
which fosters joy. This DailyAffirm process works regularly
with intention because it is a powerful concept, frequently
overlooked as the source for all actions. Perhaps you are
often unconscious of your intention, especially when
performing ordinary or regular tasks. By asking "What is
my/your/our/the intention?" you bring to the surface the
intention you desire to live from and with. You convert
ordinary activities to extraordinary activities by raising
your intention as high as you can.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Select a project or task that has your attention today. It
matters not if it is big or little, just one that has your
attention. Got it? (Pause and reflect, if needed.) Now,
state an intention with respect to that project or task.
Maybe it is simply "to get it done." Now ask yourself, is
this a high Intention? A high intention might be to use
the task "to open communication between my boss and me."
If your original intention does not seem high enough for
you, change it. Now ask yourself, is this high intention
joyful? A joyful high intention might be, "to appreciate
every moment with my boss as we deepen our relationship."
Adjust your intention however you need so that you have a
joyful high intention for this task. As tasks present
themselves to you throughout this day, you will find it
easier to move directly to realizing a joyful high
intention.

Make this a springy day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I deepen my awareness of the consciousness of joy, from
which my gracious actions spring.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
I often envision consciousness as a sphere or a pool. This
is the consciousness in which you move and live and have
your being when you work at the depth of these affirmations.
Although I have used the word "gracious" to qualify the
actions, be assured, you need not be gracious at all in the
traditional sense of that word. Sloppy or awkward or clumsy
will do just as well. The more you dip into the
consciousness of joy, the more gracious are your actions,
regardless of how they may be perceived.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Pay close attention to the differences you feel when you are
in the consciousness of joy and when you are not in the
consciousness of joy. Which do you prefer? Intellectually,
you probably opt for the most frequent and obvious response,
usually emphatically, "IN JOY!" However, you may have
become accustomed to being annoyed or angry or resentful or
grumpy or depressed. If you quickly and authentically
express such negative feelings as these, you may be amazed
how easily you can move yourself to joy. The key is to find
places to put your attention that prompt you to feel even
just a little better than the negative emotion you
frequently feel. Today, give yourself permission to be.
Give yourself permission to be human -- not as an excuse to
screw up, but as a gesture of self-love and grace.

joy
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I know that joy leads to the highest good for all.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Joy is both a path and an energy that propels you on a path.
When you live in the consciousness of joy, you can more
easily accept the concept of the highest good for all. It
is obvious when you are in the consciousness of joy that
the highest good for all does exist, but only if you let go
of the belief that you have figured out what the specific
good is for each. It is tempting sometimes to try to take
control and to have judgments and express opinions. You can
experience a power beyond words when you hold a space for
the manifestation of the highest good for all, letting go of
control, judgments, and opinions. You can affirm the h
ighest good for all as a consciousness without knowing the
specific outcomes.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
With your over-arching intention for joy in the forefront of
your mind, consider what "highest good" means to you. You
may find it helpful to identify a real situation in your
life, although beware the trap of thinking you know what is
best in a situation that is too close or emotionally charged.
You may find it MORE helpful to focus on a real situation in
someone else's life or one in your own life that is of minor
importance. Envision joy operating in the situation you
have chosen; let this joy be the energy that creates the
highest good. Just joy, now, no opinions. If you are a
helping professional, you will find this approach enhances
your work greatly without giving up anything you are already
doing (unless, of course, you hold onto control and
judgments and opinions).

Make this an intentional week!

Greetings on the 3rd week of June with the theme of Joy.
During this week we focus on Being/Intending Affirmations.
Make this an intentional week!

Remind yourself of your over-arching intention for joy.
Your statement serves as an umbrella over the whole month's
exploration of joy. It is especially helpful to re-visit
your over-arching intention as you work and play with this
week's Being and Intending Affirmations.

ABOUT BEING/INTENDING AFFIRMATIONS and JOY
"To be" and "To intend" are companion ideas, associated also
with mission and purpose. It is from your being and your
intending that you create and act. Next week, DailyAffirm
focuses on doing, acting, claiming, and manifesting. This
week, though, stay focused on the consciousness from which
you act. Many people choose to go on spiritual retreats or
vision quests or to engage in dream journaling or other
kinds of inward exploration in order to understand more
fully who they are or who they want to become. I advocate
that you choose to (under)stand right where are.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
So, here's the big question of the week: what is your life
mission? If your immediate response is your job or career
or role, my next question is: what is your life mission?
Or I might vary the question and ask: What is your purpose
for being on the planet? Or, who are you here to be? You
are here in the context of a larger whole. You are here to
do, certainly. But, who ARE you? Who are YOU? What is your
higher purpose? If you are uncertain, let yourself accept
the uncertainty. And return to the questions, who are you?
What is your life mission? (Please note: answers to such
questions need not be the same each time. As you keep
asking yourself these questions, you will become more and
more comfortable with a grand variety and richness of
answers.) So, who are you? What is your life mission?

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent being and intending for Joy it would be "I give
my attention to joy so that it expands." Our Universe is
ever-expanding and this expansion is based on the focus of
our attention.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

June 15:
I know that joy leads to the highest good for all.

June 16:
I deepen my awareness of the consciousness of joy, from
which my gracious actions spring.

June 17:
High intention operates in the midst of joy. Joy operates
in the midst of high intention.

June 18:
My mission is to bring joy to my world. I give my attention
to joy so that it expands.

June 19:
I remember joy. I remember who I Am. I am alive with the
expectancy of joy.

June 20:
I understand the meaning of joy. I know that joy is a deep
freedom.

June 21:
Joy enhances all my thoughts and feelings.

Make this a ready day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am ready right now to live in joy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Many beautiful affirmations are popular these days. The
reason that some of these beautiful affirmations "don't work"
is that the people saying them are not ready to believe them
because of opposing beliefs that are stronger. If you do
not believe the phrase "I am joyful," saying it repeatedly
will not make you believe it. This is especially true if
you limit yourself to repeatedly saying "I am joyful" for
twenty minutes in the morning and then forget to be joyful
and proceed to give your attention to non-joy. DailyAffirm
is a process with different parts and cycles to open you to
live in joy, rather than a steady stream of power statements
for you to repeat. Honor that you have a full range of
human experiences, some of which need to be released,
completed, and forgotten.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
The flavor and rhythm of the DailyAffirm List process shifts
tomorrow to Being/Intending Affirmations. As you approach
the half-way point of the month, this is a perfect time to
re-visit the over-arching intention you set for Joy. "The
highest good for all" is my favorite, all purpose, generic
high intention. Examples of statements for over-arching
intention for Joy are:

* To live in joy, to enjoy life.
* I intend to know joy.
* By the end of the month, to feel joy in a deeper way.
* To live in the consciousness of joy, not changed by
outer circumstances.
* To shift my attention from non-joy to joy.
* To trust that the highest good is always operating.
* To live my life joyfully, from the inside out.

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
Tomorrow the Being/Intending affirmations begin. Today is a
good day to reflect on all that you have received so that
you can explore more deeply who you are. Please also
re-visit your over-arching intention for Joy because you will
use that as a foundation for exploration.

Make this an ACCEPTional day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I accept peace, joy, health, and love in all aspects of my
life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Today's affirmation captures the essence of this whole week
of affirmations about receiving and accepting joy. Its
simplicity is profound. Peace and harmony and health and
freedom and love and kindness can be considered companions
of joy. Sometimes tension or discomfort makes you more
ready to accept joy and its companions. Sometimes newness
or enthusiasm accelerates your readiness. Whether it is by
surprise or planning, bless the events or conditions that
help you to accept joy and its companions.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Today, you may want to look at those parts of your life that
are open to accept peace and joy and health and love. And
then BREATHE these energies into those parts. If you
believe you still have non-joy to release, you may want to
affirm with your breathing: "I breathe in joy, I breathe
out non-joy." When you believe you have cleared enough
non-joy so that it does not block you, use your breath to
breathe joy and peace and health and love into those parts
of your life that are ready to accept these energies.

Make this a life-giving day!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear God, allow me to see joy in a way that I can understand.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
You may look for joy in certain things. You may look for
another person to bring joy into your life. You may expect
your career successes to bring you joy. But joy comes from
the inside. It is your job to bring joy into situations
rather than to expect get joy from situations. It is
disempowering to believe that your joy is dependent on
something outside yourself or that your joy is dependent on
a "thing" at all. Joy is an energy, a life-giving force.
Today's affirmation asks for assistance in perceiving joy as
you can accept it now, wherever you are in consciousness.
Perhaps three years ago you saw and understood it one way;
perhaps tomorrow you will see and understand it yet another
way. Today, see it as you can accept it now.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
It has been a while since I have verbalized an encouragement
to you to edit or otherwise rearrange the words in the daily
affirmations. My intention is to write these affirmations
so that a broad number of folks with different philosophies
can relate to them. You know when the process is working
for you. And when it is not, you can change the process or
the affirmation or both. So, today you might think of all
the different ways to express the essence of this affirmation.

Make this a friendly day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Joy, you are my friend. Let's play together!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This is such a playful affirmation. I chuckled when I
received a request to cancel a DailyAffirm List
subscription which said: "Please cancel my subscription to
your Daily Affirmations. At this time I am still working
on 'You are my friend,' believe it or not!" I do believe
it and I emailed him a message saying that. I consider
"you are my friend" to be a life-changing concept. I expect
that in much of your upbringing, your associations with
siblings and playmates often led to beliefs of "not enough"
or that one person was "better/lesser than" another. When
you compete in school, these ideas are reinforced in another
way. And, in the business world competition is intensified
in yet another way. How transformational to accept that
everyone is your friend!

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Here is a suggestion for working with this affirmation today:
consider everyONE and everyTHING to be your friend. As you
take your car keys in your hand, say (out loud if no one is
around or silently to yourself), "you are my friend." As
you pick up a ringing phone to say hello, think to yourself,
"you are my friend." As you look at yourself in a mirror or
shiny surface, think, "you are my friend." If you desire,
you can add words or ideas about "joy" and "play." Just
accepting everyone and everything as your friend will put
you in the consciousness of joy and fun. How can you look
at a piece of lettuce balanced on a fork while saying "you
are my friend" without laughing or giggling or smiling?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I bless all I have learned through painful experiences in
the past. I now accept my learning in joy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This affirmation opens you to accept experiences and
learning with joy rather than struggle, without remorse
about the past. Associating pain with learning is an
outdated orientation. Last week on this DailyAffirm
Process, you released what you do not need or desire in
order to make room for establishing joy as the norm for
life's activities. Continue to let go of the popular,
disempowering phrase "No pain, no gain" and open to more
empowering phrases to replace this one.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Today, you may choose to look at HOW you accept learning in
joy. How do you use laughter to advance yourself? How do
you play in the midst of transition or turmoil? How do you
invite joy and pleasure into your life? If you see joy as
just an accident or luck, then you have not accepted that
you are the creator of your own experiences. Accept the
Creator in you.

Make this a present day!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I receive joy from the Universe. I resonate with the energy
of joy. I allow joy to flow through me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
And so today's affirmation continues with and expands the
idea of receiving from the Universe. "Receiving" can simply
amount to accepting a wrapped present and leaving it on the
kitchen table, unopened. However, you want to open the
presents/presence of joy and touch the energy of joy.
Acceptance and receptivity are not passive and indifferent
concepts. Make a choice to receive the gifts, to open them,
to use them. Indeed, let the presents/presence use you!
These gifts (the presents) are from spirit (the presence)
right now (the present)!

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Consider today what it REALLY means to you to "resonate"
with the energy of joy. Joy has a specific resonance, a
discernible frequency. Perhaps you sometimes describe joy
as "bubbly" when you try to put your perceptions into words.
This effervescence is on the surface; it gets your attention.
However, joy itself is unseen by the physical eye. You can
see MANIFESTATIONS of joy, but joy itself, is not a physical
phenomenon. Joy is from Spirit. Joy is of Spirit. Joy is
Spirit.

I am ready to be taught through you.

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Acknowledge and receive Joy and the Angel of Joy into your
life. Open yourself to be a vehicle of joy. Become joy.
Let your energy field open, stretching outward, upward,
downward, inward. This expansion allows more room for joy
to be expressed through you and as you.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Consider today an idea or a thought you most desire to tell
an angel or another being of light who has no human judgment.
Perhaps this thought is a deep secret, one which you have
not told a human being or have rarely told anyone. Perhaps
it is a dream you have dared not reveal. Perhaps it is rage.
Or shame. Tell the Angel of Joy. This powerful angel can
assist you in realizing your truth, freed from any part of
your past that has appeared as a limitation.

Make this a receptive week!

Greetings on the 2nd week of June with the theme of Joy.
During this second week we focus on Receiving/Accepting
Affirmations. Make this a receptive week!

ABOUT RECEIVING/ACCEPTING AFFIRMATIONS and JOY
As I sit down to write this week's message, I am aware of
the relief to finish releasing non-joy. It is also a JOY to
release non-joy. There is a readiness for so many of the
persons with whom I work to LIVE in joy. To enjoy life.
Acknowledge that joy is all around you and in you. Open to
joy. Open and receive.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Do you remember when you were a little child? (We all are
still children, of course, but that is another story.) Here
is a scenario: It's a rainy day in the country, a park, or
the street. The rain is either warm and gentle or it is cool
during a hot spell. You are six years old. With your mouth
in a broad grin, you turn your face upward, eyes closed,
tongue out. It tastes sooo good. It feels sooo good. You
trust the rain. You are open.

I encourage you this week to identify an image that
represents receiving goodness from the Universe. The image
I have described in the above paragraph may resonate with
you or not. Remember or create one that does. The more
childlike, the better. Throughout the week if you notice
that you are turning away from joy or that you have closed
laughter or fun from your life, remember your image. Be a
joyous child.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent receiving and accepting for Joy, it would be "I
accept (or receive) joy in all aspects of my life." Another
affirmation also leaps out at me this week. It is the one
for June 12: "Joy, you are my friend. Let's play
together!" Perhaps that is just because I am in a playful
mood.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

June 8:
I open to allow joy to operate in all life. Angel of Joy,
I am ready to be taught through you.

June 9:
I receive joy from the Universe. I resonate with the energy
of joy. I allow joy to flow through me.

June 10:
I bless all I have learned through painful experiences in
the past. I now accept my learning in joy.

June 11:
Dear God, allow me to see joy in a way that I can understand.

June 12:
Joy, you are my friend. Let's play together!

June 13:
I accept peace, joy, health, and love in all aspects of my
life.

June 14:
I am ready right now to live in joy.

The Force, Infinite Source) purify any remaining thoughts and
feelings of struggle.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Today, trust Spirit to handle what you may have missed. Let
hidden beliefs and memories of struggle or victim
consciousness effortlessly come to the surface to be released.
When you work with Spirit in this deep and powerful way, you
are blessed with joy in your manifestations. All that you
manifest on the physical plane is temporary, ever-changing.
Spirit is eternal, everlasting, joyous, beyond human
understanding, ever-expanding. A joy of being human is to
anchor joy on the planet.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I want to express my deep appreciation to those of you on
this DailyAffirm List who show up to be present, to "do the
work." You have chosen the Light. This choice requires
moving THROUGH darkness with your Light. Discomforts and
inconveniences are NOT the Truth of who you are, but old
patterns that can change naturally by choosing to live in
the Light. Keep finding ways to deepen in your
consciousness about joy.

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
As you come to the end of this first week, you may want to
re-visit your over-arching intention about joy to ready
yourself for the Receiving/Accepting Affirmations that begin
tomorrow. If you still have more non-joy to release, you
can continue to release it, even as you accept and receive
joy. Today is a wonderful opportunity to cleanse your home
or office, to empty physical trash as well as emotional or
mental trash.

I dissolve thoughts that suggest there is no joy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Many different thoughts suggest there is no joy. Such
suggestions are broadcast on television with graphic
representations of hardship, displayed on the silver screen
with glorification of explosive destruction, written in
newspapers with reports of crime, spoken in households and
neighborhoods in miscommunications. You can replace the
distortions in an instant with enlightened thoughts. Joy
replaces non-joy. Love replaces non-love. Peace replaces
non-peace. This is a simple formula. The more you focus on
the consciousness of love and joy and peace, the less you
can focus on despair and other forms of non-joy. I find it
is important to be able to recognize what you do not want so
that you do not sabotage yourself by dwelling on unwanted
stuff, and more easily learn to quickly shift your attention
elsewhere.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Take a brief look at the non-joy suggestions in your own
life. Perhaps you have even expressed some already today.
What suggests to you there is no joy? Perhaps an old habit?
a friend? your job? a billboard? your car? a casual
conversation? a television commercial? How many non-joy
thought forms are you willing to commit yourself to replace
with joyful thoughts today? Now, spend more time looking at
the joy suggestions in your life.

As you become aware of specific beliefs that are limiting
thoughts, you may wish to return to working with the
affirmations of June 1 and June 2. You can adjust either or
both affirmations to incorporate the limiting beliefs that
you discover, if you choose. You will find that writing
these affirmations according to the process we have
developed will be particularly effective.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I cut negative bonds of attachment to despair, depression,
and desperation. I untie the knots and the nots.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Attachments come in all shapes and sizes. Some talk to you;
others are silent. Some are joyful (like happy marriages);
some are painful (like unhappy divorces). "Cannots" and
restraints and doubts often look like knots in the energy
field. These knots can be untied. Negative bonds can be
cut. Working with imagery in the energy field is powerful,
and usually more effective than pondering the thing to which
you are attached and the circumstances of the attachments.
You can also untie the bonds to depressing history or
disempowering current events.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
This affirmation is particularly appropriate for using the
power of imagery or visualization. Ask yourself, "What
attachment limits my experience of joy?" Close your eyes (to
minimize distraction of physical input) and ask for an image
from your inner guidance. This image can come to you in any
number of ways: through your vision or hearing or sensations
in your physical body or intuition. If you receive
information about knots and ties, work with THEM -- untie the
knots, cut the ties. This will be MUCH more empowering than
trying to tackle the THING to which you have appeared to be
negatively attached (you probably already know this is true,
because you have been working on this for years!) Finish it!
It is time to step into joy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I release memories that allowed belief in pain and struggle.
The energy of these memories is now used in more empowering
ways.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
"Memories" can be the obvious memories you remember in your
conscious awareness. In addition, you hold "memories" at
other levels of consciousness. Every experience leaves a
mark in the energy field. Your parents and lovers and
friends and associates also hold memories that you sometimes
step into -- sometimes as easily as you might step into cow
flop on a stroll in a pasture. It is as easy to slip out of
a belief in pain and struggle as to slip into a belief in
pain and struggle. The way in is the way out. If you find
it easy to believe in pain and struggle, guess what? It is
just as easy (and a lot more fun) to believe in non-pain and
non-struggle: joy and trust and peace and harmony.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
It is not necessary to sift through and recall all the
memories of pain and struggle that you are releasing this
week. Figuring out "why" and "who did what" can be quite
debilitating and can slow your process at the very time that
you want to accelerate it. Just let it go. Take it to the
trash. Or drop it in the pasture. As that stuff in the
pasture turns from foul excrement to nurturing fertilizer,
so, too, the sticky stuff of pain is transformed into an
energy that is revitalizing. Let it go from your energy
field.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I rescind obsolete vows of struggle, sacrifice, and
unworthiness. Angels lift this heaviness.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This is one of the variations of the "vows of limitation"
affirmation. As you recognize what gets in the way of joy
for you, you may find that you have created a rule or vow or
limiting belief about that very thing. You can not harm
angels by giving them the heaviness of outdated beliefs and
vows and struggle and pain, but you can lighten your own
load. Angels are here for all humanity. Someone in the
human body must ask for their help because they do not
interfere in human lives. They watch, fascinated and amused
by acts of limitation, but they do not act without invitation.
Our beckoning invites them to act in accordance with the
divine.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I suggest you search your life for the limiting vows or ideas
that you believe, that you hold to be true. For example, do
you believe there is not enough money? This is a false
belief. The APPEARANCE of "not enough money" presents itself
as an experience because it is a manifestation of the belief
itself. The experience or "proof" shows up because of the
power of the beliefs. Experiences of "not enough money" are
created to demonstrate thoughts of lack. I pick the belief
in "not enough money" because it is so prevalent. Perhaps
you are rescinding a different vow or false belief today or
this week. P.S. If you start to argue that there TRULY is
"not enough money" you are arguing for limitations. You
have a right to do this, I simply wish to mention this just
in case you are inclined to step into that trap.

(Incidentally, DailyAffirm explores the theme of Abundance
in September.)

ABOUT YOUR INTENTION
If you have not already done so, please identify your over-
arching intention for Joy. That is, develop a statement that
guides you in the exploration and embodiment of Joy.
Intention is the energy or consciousness from which actions
emerge. If you are uncertain how to write this intention,
just make an attempt. Keep it simple. You have 30 days to
work with the intention and the theme, so let your statement
change and deepen. Here are a few suggestions for statements
of intention about the theme of Joy: *To know joy. *To
resonate with the energy of joy. *To feel joy in each moment.
*To stay in the consciousness of joy, regardless of the
circumstances. *To be a place for joy to live.

ABOUT RELEASING/CLEANSING AFFIRMATIONS and JOY
The key idea this week is: what gets in the way of joy?
Pain, for example, tends to block joy or distract you from
joy. Fears and old, stuck emotions are the opposite of joy.
Resistance makes joy inaccessible. As you clear non-joy
from your energy field, you become more focused on the idea
and the manifestation of joy. If you desire to have a
beautiful garden, you remove the weeds and clutter. It is
that simple. This week, prune non-joy. Fertilize the soil
and the soul with the clippings. Life is a process. And in
the next cycle, the process repeats.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I recommend that you write this week's affirmations. I
have developed a process which is described in the book,
"Affirmations: A Pathway to Transformation" and in an article
entitled, "Writing Affirmations for Empowerment." As those
who have been participating know, this article is posted at
my Web site along with about 40 others, http://www.mhmail.com
and then click on Articles by Jeanie. See information below
to request any or all articles or the List of Articles by
email.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent releasing and cleansing for Joy it would be the
affirmation: "I rescind obsolete vows of struggle, sacrifice,
and unworthiness. Angels lift this heaviness." I find that
the baggage of ancient vows and beliefs tends to hold many
individuals in a consciousness of bondage. The June 2
affirmation helps to dissolve the limitations.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

June 1:
I give myself permission to release rage and pain easily and
joyously from every level of the energy field.

June 2:
I rescind obsolete vows of struggle, sacrifice, and
unworthiness. Angels lift this heaviness.

June 3:
I let go of everything that appears to prevent or block joy.
I cancel the picture created by the expression, "no pain, no
gain."

June 4:
I release memories that allowed belief in pain and struggle.
The energy of these memories is now used in more empowering
ways.

June 5:
I cut negative bonds of attachment to despair, depression,
and desperation. I untie the knots and the nots.

June 6:
I dissolve thoughts that suggest there is no joy.

June 7:
I let Spirit (My Higher Self, God, My Spirit Guides, The One,
The Force, Infinite Source) purify any remaining thoughts
and feelings. of struggle.

Today is an opportunity for trust.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION

Ode to Today
Today, today.
Today is everyday.
Today is all I know.
Today is when I grow.
Today I created from yesterdays' todays.
Today I create tomorrows' today.
Today is an opportunity.
Today I trust.
Today is. I Am.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
So, whad'ja gonna do today? Are you going to LET today
be an opportunity for trust? Are you going to MAKE today
be an opportunity for trust? Either approach works, if it is
appropriate for you. If you are in a Receiving/Accepting
mode, let the opportunities for trust come to you. If you
are in an Acting/Claiming mode, create the opportunities
for trust to occur.

ABOUT OUR NEXT THEME (WHEN TOMORROW IS TODAY)
It is a new month: June. The theme is Joy. When I
originally meditated on this theme in preparation for the
daily writing, I heard the song "Joy to the World" ringing
in my ears. This is not the version sung in Christian
churches at Christmas time, but the delightful 3-Dog Night
version, the one about "joy to the fishes in the deep blue
sea, joy to you and me. Jooooy to the World." During the
first week, we work with Releasing/Cleansing Affirmations.

I integrate trust into every aspect of my life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Every means every. Every aspect of your life includes the
places and things and people you think about as well as the
obvious parts, such as career, relationship, health, family,
home. As you give your thoughts -- your attention -- to
other people, places, things, and ideas, you include them in
your life. So it is important that your thoughts be worthy
of your attention.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Is there any little -- or big -- part of your life in which
trust needs to be integrated? You may find that simply
inviting trust to exist in this place is all that is needed.
Perhaps you feel it is more complicated or that something
must happen first. Can you trust yourself to let go of all
the conditions and qualifiers and excuses and complaints
and habits to just trust? I believe in you. I believe you
can JUST TRUST, starting right now. Today. This minute.
Instantly. At once. Immediately. Instantaneously.
Unhesitantly. Tout de suite. Now.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yes to Trust!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Yes, this is a time of integrating trust. Yes, this is a
time of embodying trust. In an article that is online at my
Web site ("Strategies for the Highest Good"), I include the
following as one of the strategies: "Know that the Universe
has only one response: it is yes. When you say, "I hate
that," the Universe says "yes" by providing experiences of
hatred because hatred has your attention. When you say "I
love that," the Universe responds with experiences of love
because love has your attention. The beliefs and thoughts
you hold have an energy that travels; that same energy
travels back to you, magnified."

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
To what do you desire to say "yes"? Is it trust? Is it
deep trust? Is it trust in a particular thing or idea? Is
it trust in yourself? Is it trust in the Universe? As you
focus firmly on your vision of trust, be certain that you
use this powerful concept expressed in this affirmation to
produce the experiences you truly desire. YES is a powerful
fuel that activates conditions and experiences.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I let every act be an act of trust.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The name you give something can greatly impact how you
relate to that thing. Call it "fearsome" and you tend to be
afraid. Call it "beautiful" and you tend to see beauty.
Call it "trusting" and you tend to trust. Of course, the
thing is more than the name you give it -- you do not want
to confuse yourself by thinking the thing and its name are
synonymous. Today, allow all your actions to be named
"trust" while at the same time, dip into the consciousness
of trust. If every step is a step of trust, then your steps
move you from trust to trust and away from non-trust and
distrust.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
If you have a specific action that today or tomorrow calls
you to trust deeply, take a moment to be with that act in
consciousness. That is, be with the idea of the action --
both before and while acting. Touch the essence of the
action, taste the feelings of the action. Let the act itself
be an opportunity for trust to flow through you: be with
the idea of trust, touch the essence of trust, and taste
the feelings of trust. Act and trust. Trust and act.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I draw a circle of trust to establish my world.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Each time you intentionally draw a circle of trust or love
or peace, you expand its light. This circle is more than a
line drawn in the sand, although such a line can represent
this circle for you. The circle of trust is, perhaps, more
appropriately called a "sphere of trust" for it is multi-
dimensional. Once established, its energy grows and grows.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Have you ever experienced broken trust? That is, you
believed that you had a relationship with someone or with a
group and then.... well, something happened. It does not
really matter the facts here, so try not to get hooked on
who did what to whom when and where. And DEFINITELY
do not ask WHY! Just invite the situation or person(s)
into your circle of trust. Or, if you prefer, draw a circle
of trust around the person or persons and, of course, draw
your own circle around yourself and/or your family and/or
your business. Envision ALL circles of trust expanding.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I manifest all things in association with trust. Trust and
I are One.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The idea of manifesting all your creations with trust is a
powerful one. This affirmation helps you to minimize past
manifestations that were created with non-trust; it can also
create future experiences that are more trusting. All this
month, the DailyAffirm affirmations have been acknowledging
and honoring various relationships and associations with
trust (and non-trust). The process has encouraged you to
talk with trust, set intentions about trust, release non-
trust, take trust with you, feel trust, sense trust, and
experience trust as a friend. Today's affirmation moves
you from the idea of being separate from trust to being one
with trust. Trust and I are One. Or, if you prefer, Trust
and I is One.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
At this time, you may feel as if you are walking through a
wall in one or more parts of your life. (And if not, just
appreciate that you are not walking through a wall and/or
support others as they walk through a wall.) The wall
may be made of stone or wood or brick or soot or anger
or despair or rage or something else. This is the time to
walk through the wall, knowing that you are not alone.
You are One with Trust.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I claim my trust. I claim my power.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Claiming trust and claiming power are not exactly the same;
however, they tend to run parallel to each other. Persons
hesitant to trust themselves are also often hesitant to live
in their power. The "power" I speak of is the true and
lasting power that comes from within, not the artificial and
temporary power in politics or organizations. The power I
speak about is not "power over" another person or thing,
but empowerment that supports you in being your authentic
self. This is not the power that comes from fear; this
is the power that comes from love and trust.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Identify one area in which you desire to be more powerful.
You may choose to select a big area, such as your "whole
life" or a more focused area, such as your job or a
particular task you have responsibility to perform. The
more precise and clear the vision, whether comprehensive
or narrow, the more likely you are to see your desired
results -- maybe even instantly! Let your vision of trust
guide you to be in your power, trusting yourself.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I act with trust in my heart. I speak with trust on my lips.
I walk with trust in my feet.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION

Trusting in your head is only a starting place. All
manifestations on the earth plane start with an idea, a
thought. This idea, however, must move out of the head in
order to be manifested. Many people have beautiful ideas in
their heads -- pictures and dreams of peace and harmony, with
no clue how to manifest the ideas into physical reality.
Creation happens through movement of thoughts. Living in
your head or in isolation does not test your trust; movement
tests your trust. Thoughts propel your movement: feelings
tell you the extent to which your intention and your
movement are in alignment.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Identify an act you might take today that is a demonstration
of your trust. It need not be a profound act (although
profound is fine!). Perhaps your act of trust is speaking
up in a situation in which you have considered yourself to
be powerless. Perhaps your act of trust is making a
decision that has been hovering over you for a long time.
Perhaps your act of trust is exploring a deep issue you
have been hesitant to look at. Perhaps your act of trust
is taking a step in a different direction. In order to
experience trust, you must put it out to the universe. You
must give it away.

the best kind of gas/petrol! (And the price does not go up
at the pump.) Get energized with Spirit, with trust, with
truth. Life is a process. A popular phrase is "trust the
process" -- in fact, that has been a popular phrase in all
the years that I have been actively involved in personal and
organizational development. When you feel non-trusting,
that is the time you must remind yourself to trust the
process. As you trust, you are propelled further. And you
often inspire others to trust more, which inspires you even
further. And so continues the process.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Today is a great day to ponder what it means to be on a
path to transformation. As you know, these affirmations
are based on a book which uses the title, "Affirmations:
A Pathway to Transformation." I carefully call the
affirmations "A" pathway to transformation, not "The"
pathway to transformation. Many paths and pathways
can lead you to transformation, to transformations of many
types.

Make this a splendid week-plus

Greetings on the 4th week of May with the theme of Trust.
During this fourth week we focus on Acting/Claiming
Affirmations, and the last days of the month we focus
on Integrating/Embodying Affirmations. Make this a
splendid week-plus!

ABOUT ACTING/CLAIMING AFFIRMATIONS and TRUST
First of all, remember that "stop" and "silence" are also
aspects of acting and claiming. I say this so that you do
not interpret the affirmations this week as needing to be
aggressive or noisy. Trust, itself, has a rather quiet
energy -- smooth, and calming. When you envision yourself
or others acting with trust, you usually see confidence,
assurance, peace. Trust is, first and foremost, an act of
self-trust. When you trust yourself, you know when others
are trustworthy.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Since your "process" is about "how" you do things, you
might want to focus on HOW you act when you trust.
Observe yourself, for example, when you trust yourself or
a situation or another person...... How does this feel?
How do you think about the objects of trust? How do you
speak? How do you give your attention to something or
someone? How do you show that you trust? Observe
yourself, also, when you do NOT trust yourself or a
situation or another person...... How does this feel? What
thoughts accompany the feelings? How do you speak?
What has your attention? How do you show that you do
not trust?

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent being and intending for trust it would be "I let
every act be an act of trust," the affirmation for May 27.
When you know the truth of this affirmation, you learn about
trust through everything you do.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

May 22:
Trust energizes my actions and propels me on the path to
transformation.

May 23:
I act with trust in my heart. I speak with trust on my lips.
I walk with trust in my feet.

May 24:
I claim my trust. I claim my power.

May 25:
I manifest all things in association with trust. Trust and
I are One.

May 26:
I draw a circle of trust to establish my world.

May 27:
I let every act be an act of trust.

May 28:
I act with purposeful awareness of trust. I show up and
speak my truth.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT INTEGRATING/EMBODYING AFFIRMATIONS and TRUST
Bless these remaining days of the month, days that allow you
to integrate and embody the theme of trust. It is not so
important that you learn something new, but that you know
what you have learned in the deepest possible way. Breathe
trust into your lungs and cells and muscles. Relax; reflect.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
If you have been writing about your experiences this month,
you might want to review your notes. Anything that does
not fit can be released. Relax and allow the integration
to happen effortlessly. Rejoice in the consciousness of
trust.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

May 29:
Yes to Trust!

May 30:
I integrate trust into every aspect of my life.

May 31:
Today is an opportunity for trust.

Make this a thoughtful day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Trust enhances all my thoughts and feelings.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
I appreciate the simplicity of today's affirmation. The
idea that every single thought and feeling is enhanced by
trust is uplifting. For this affirmation to be effective,
you do not need to be concerned about your definition of
trust, nor do you need to identify the specific thoughts or
feelings that are enhanced. Definitions and specifics are
bonuses. The essence of this affirmation is to let the
energy of trust work for you through your intention. Show
up and trust. All else flows from that consciousness.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
This last day of the third week is the perfect day to re-visit
the over-arching intention you set at the beginning of the
exploration of Trust. After clearing out in the first week,
opening up in the second week, and relating to trust in
specific situations in this third week, you perhaps have a
deeper connection with your over-arching intention. You
may want to check that your over-arching intention is clear
and simple, one that works for you at all times, in all
places, with respect to trust.

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
Tomorrow we shift to the Acting/Claiming Affirmations, so
consider anything else that is relevant to you about your
understanding and relationship to trust. Next week's
action-oriented affirmations are quite different from this
week's statements and exercises.

Make this a knowing day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I understand the meaning of trust. I know that when I trust
myself, I trust others.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Today's affirmation is the one which best presents my own
definition of "trust." When you truly know the meaning of
trust, you transcend the mental processes, that is, you do
not merely recognize or think about trust, you know trust.
The deepest meaning of trust is an experience which no words
can convey, yet it can be empowering to attempt to find the
words that represent or name the experience as authentically
as possible.

Here's an example: I facilitated a corporate team building
event for five powerful persons for whom "trust" had been an
issue repeatedly identified in the advance interviews. On
the afternoon of the second/last day, one of the participants
said, "This is it. This is trust." We all paused. In the
silence we could feel it. In that moment, words to describe
the feeling would have been hollow, indeed, yet his clear
and succinct words named the moment for us to breathe in and
experience.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Identify a situation (a relationship, place in nature, book,
teacher, prayer, silence, etc.) in which you know trust.
You have no doubt; you know trust. Breathe in trust. Feel
it. Sense it. Notice its texture. See its color. Hear
its vibration. Let your lips touch it as you whisper or
shout "trust." Describe it. Throughout my many years as
a group process facilitator and consultant, I have
repeatedly observed positive results when folks verbalize
their visions and dreams and goals to others, especially
others who care. If this feels appropriate to you (trust
yourself to know if this is appropriate or not), share your
Trust Vision Statement (as described with yesterday's
affirmation) with a trusted friend.

Make this a memorable day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I remember to trust. I trust myself. I remember who I Am.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Sometimes you just forget. Acknowledge your forgetfulness
as an aspect of the human condition, without falling into
the trap of blame or guilt. Forgetfulness can be the result
of any number of possible causes, and sometimes is just as
simple as having the focus of your attention on something
other than the subject you have forgotten. Today's
affirmation challenges you to remember on many levels: to
remember the idea of trust, to remember yourself, and to
remember the divine. It is time to remember; it is time to
re-member.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you are understanding yourself and trust more deeply,
you may find that a Trust Vision Statement supports you.
Your vision statement may be your over-arching intention
for the month, the dream(s) in which you trust, your
definition of trust, or your desired manifestation. When
you have developed a Trust Vision Statement that you are
pleased with, put it in a place that allows you to give it
your attention at various times throughout the day. Let the
Trust Vision Statement change if needed. It can help you
to remember who you are.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My mission is to embrace trust in my world.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This is a worthy mission! As you embrace trust in ways that
feel personal, you make a powerful contribution to the world.
Think of what a different world it would be if you and
everyone else trusted each other! Wow! In an instant, the
world would be transformed. In the meantime, though, you can
transform Your World, because Your World is where you give
your attention. "World Peace is a Personal Choice." You
get to choose the world in which you live by the focus of
your attention.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
You have your own unique, individual, personalized, and
singular process. Running parallel to your unique process
is the universal process. If you look carefully, you are
likely to find that your process and the universal process
are astoundingly similar. This similarity does not diminish
your uniqueness, but supports and honors it. Perhaps you
have stepped through a dark wall of despair, fear, doubt,
and toxicity. Throughout history, we humans have been
clever about stepping AROUND the wall (denying it), going
OVER it (overcoming it), blasting INTO it (forcing or
struggling with it), and lifting it UP (glorifying it). It
is time now to walk THROUGH it with your light. Oops!
Be careful not to drop the light, believing that the
darkness is omnipresent. You ARE walking with your light.
Embrace your mission.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

High intention operates in the midst of trust. Trust
operates in the midst of high intention.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
We are beyond the middle and still in the midst of this
month's exploration of trust. This is the perfect vantage
point for you to look backward to the over-arching intention
you set initially, and look forward to the vision you hold
of trust. Trust requires a fertile environment in which to
operate in its fullness. Of course, it is important to
create this environment in ways that are already familiar to
you and in ways that foster familiarity. If you get stuck
in appearances -- that is, trying to make things look safe
and trusting -- you may handle the immediate situation
adequately, but you do not necessarily build trust. You
want trust to operate simply because you are present and
authentic, not because you have performed tricks or used
neat techniques or masked pain.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Embedded within your over-arching intention for Trust is
the belief you hold about the definition of trust. If you
believe trust is like an automobile, for example, you
know that the vehicle requires certain elements and
conditions in order to operate. If you consider that "trust"
is a synonym for "faith," you want to be clear in WHAT
you have faith. Faith in fear or danger does not facilitate
empowerment as, say, faith in yourself or faith in love. As
you ponder what trust is and how it operates, you may find
that more spaces open for experience of trust, as trust
does require an expanded energy field. P.S. It's O.K. to
look in your dictionary or thesaurus to read definitions of
"trust."

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I deepen my awareness of the consciousness of trust,
from which my truthful actions spring.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Consciousness is the stuff from which manifestations and
actions are created. As you become more aware of the energy
of those things that you desire to create and experience,
you find that manifesting your dreams is effortless and
enjoyable. You can accelerate your process by becoming more
familiar with energetics. If, for example, you desire to
speak the truth, you must be able to recognize the energy of
truth wherever it exists, regardless of the packaging. You
can become quite distracted by packaging (e.g., superficially
beautiful people with shallow personalities), and convinced
of falsehoods (e.g., viewpoints presented and re-presented
as facts in the media), and overcome by your own distresses
(e.g., demands that overly stretch you). You might trust
such things because you see or hear or touch them, usually
repeatedly. Let today's affirmation challenge you to go
deeper than the surface.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
What is the ONE most important thing you desire to
accomplish today? (Yes, I know there are MANY things
you desire to accomplish today and, furthermore, that you
will accomplish far more than one thing. But, humor me,
pick ONE.) Got it? Now ask yourself some questions about
this thing: What is your intention? What purpose does this
thing have in your life? How much do you trust yourself to
accomplish the highest good for all through this thing?
What is your truth with respect to this thing? Take a deep
breath to deepen your awareness of the consciousness of
trust. Repeat these four questions. Trust the process.

Make this an intentional day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I know that trust leads to the highest good for all.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The word "know" when applied to spiritual ideas means
embodying higher consciousness rather than recognizing
or naming facts. "Spiritual realization" is the perfect
euphemism for this knowing, but a mouthful. The energy
that accompanies this knowing is strong and pure. Often
it is important to affirm this kind of knowing quietly.
To know and to be silent is one of many initiations along
an intentional spiritual path. I have silently watched
powerful transformation occur while being in this
consciousness of knowing the highest good for all.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
The beginning of this third week, which focuses on being/
intending affirmations, is an appropriate time to re-visit
the over-arching intention that you set at the beginning of
your exploration of Trust. This week also allows you to
know at a deeper level what your over-arching intention
about trust can mean to your life. Today, you may wish
to identify a specific situation which can benefit from an
infusion of deep knowing and spiritual realization.

Make this a meaningful week!

Greetings on the 3rd week of May with the theme of Trust.
During this third week we focus on Being/Intending
Affirmations. Make this a meaningful week!

Remind yourself of your over-arching intention for trust.

ABOUT BEING/INTENDING AFFIRMATIONS and TRUST
"To be or not to be. That is the question." These are
famous words from Shakespeare's "Hamlet," of course.
Trusting that it is worthwhile to be alive in physical form
is an issue that many persons face at some time in their
lives. In the deepest time of non-trust, a tiny spark of
light may be all that is needed to kindle your inner trust.
O Or you may be that spark of light for another who is ready
to awaken from the darkness. This is a time of awakening!
You have your own style of awakening -- with a yawn or a
grumble or a leap or one sleepy eye slowly opening. You
must awaken in order to be who you are here on earth to be.
Your acquired habits of do, do, do can put you firmly in the
do-do. Activities that keep you from being authentic and
fulfilled can be refocused with clear intention.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
This week, go deeper into the idea of your intention of
trust. You can dabble on the surface and think about
whether you trust this person or that idea or a decision you
have made. Or you can go deeper and live with the ideas
that relate to self-trust. Or you can go still deeper and
explore Trust in Self and the Divine. I challenge you to go
to the core of Trust. If you were to live with the definitive
question related to Trust and Being/Intending, it is "Who
am I?" This is a question you can ask yourself hundreds
of times a day, yielding a different and viable answer to
each iteration.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent being and intending for Trust it would be the
affirmation for May 19: "I remember to trust. I trust
myself. I remember who I Am." These three sentences
help us to connect more deeply with the true meaning of
trust and our personal mission.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

May 15:
I know that trust leads to the highest good for all.

May 16:
I deepen my awareness of the consciousness of trust, from
which my truthful actions spring.

May 17:
High intention operates in the midst of trust. Trust
operates in the midst of high intention.

May 18:
My mission is to embrace trust in my world.

May 19:
I remember to trust. I trust myself. I remember who I Am.

May 20:
I understand the meaning of trust. I know that when I trust
myself I trust others.

May 21:
Trust enhances all my thoughts and feelings.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am ready right now to live in trust. The Angel of Trust
is with me.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The Angel of Trust is a being of Light who came strongly
into a meditation group I facilitated for many years called
"Going Deeper." This being came at a time when many in the
group were particularly distressed and despairing. It was a
pivotal experience because it was a spiritual initiation
that accelerated them into their next phase of development.
They were ready.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Do you trust Spirit? Are you READY to trust Spirit? These
are two distinctly different questions. If you are
resonating with victim consciousness, you are not living
in the Trust of Spirit, although you may trust in being a
victim. Here is an assignment to help you to accept the
power of today's affirmation. Listen to yourself and/or
others. "This happened to me..." is a clue that the speaker
is feeling or thinking as a victim. Listen more closely to
what follows. If the story is more about the speaker being
DONE TO rather than DOING, these are more clues.

Even a very powerful person can feel or think as a victim
from time to time, falling into a trap of agreed-upon
(consensus) reality. Victim consciousness is prevalent --
a weakened and distorted view of the world. This
observation exercise that I suggest is important for the
remaining weeks in this month of Trust. Remember to be
gentle with yourself and others, regardless of what you
observe. This exercise is not intended as an invitation to
judge, but as an invitation to observe and evolve, so that
you can live more fully what you desire to live.

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
Tomorrow the Being/Intending affirmations begin. Today is a
good day to reflect on all that you have received in the
name of trust so that you can explore more deeply who you
are. Please also re-visit your over-arching intention for
trust because we use that as a foundation for exploration.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I accept trust, joy, and love in all aspects of my life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
To experience something, you accept it into your life. You
may tend to argue against this point when you are in the
middle of uncomfortable circumstances or when you feel like
a victim. When you are in pain, it is hard to understand
that you have invited the painful conditions you are
experiencing. And, of course, this is unintentional. As
you become more intentional about your thought patterns and
responses, you might become impatient when your circumstances
do not change as quickly as you grasp ideas for change,
tending to blame the circumstances or conditions outside
yourself. Self-kindness is required as you develop new
habits that encourage receiving what you truly desire. A
simple "yes" to trust and joy and love is a starting place;
consistent "yeses" yield the manifested desires.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Today, remember to be kind to yourself and life. As you
work with today's and other empowering affirmations and
methods, you are moving away from old thoughts and patterns.
The conditions you find yourself in today are manifestations
of previous thoughts. It is true that your birthright IS to
experience joy, however, if you have not yet lifted your
consciousness to focus on joy, recognize that is your work.
Life is a process. You are not here to manipulate the
Universe, but to experience life to the fullest. Today,
appreciate ALL that surrounds you, for you have accepted
these things into your life. If you are not pleased with
what you have already manifested, start today to accept
what you desire into your life.

Make this a divine day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear God, allow me to see trust in a way that I can
understand.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The divine is always showing you trust in ways that you can
understand -- it is up to you to notice, to see, to perceive.
This simple prayer asks for more than just "seeing" with the
physical eye or "understanding" with the mental processes.
It asks for the grace to know trust, to realize trust, to
live trust, to experience trust. Seek the trust that
transcends the concrete.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Sometimes you may be called upon to demonstrate your
understanding and knowing of trust. In fact, such a
demonstration may bring you to your knees in surrender.
Demonstrating trust is one way to lift your consciousness.
Your demonstrations are unique to you, and need not be like
any one else's. It is a rite of passage that you face --
perhaps you are even experiencing this rite of passage right
now. Knowing trust moves you to the other side of the
initiation: trust yourself, trust your process, trust the
divine. If you are regularly on your knees in gratitude,
you are less likely to be forced to your knees in desperation.

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Today's affirmation helps you to perceive trust as fluid --
able to flow through you. Trust can wash away old memories
of distrust and mistrust and non-trust. Trust is aligned
with Truth from a higher source; that is, trust is pure, not
manipulative. Today's is a perfect affirmation to use just
before participating in an event (a meeting with the boss, a
sales presentation, connecting with an associate or friend,
etc.), especially an event that seems challenging. Or we
may choose a commonplace event, such as driving our car,
which is a very important time to be aligned with the divine
and with trust.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I talk with many folks who understand intellectually and
speak articulately about the idea of "being in the flow"
and "trusting the Universe" and "living in the moment."
Understanding intellectually and speaking articulately are
worthy starting places, especially if you find that language
helps you to integrate your thoughts and be in touch with
your feelings. The test comes when you are challenged
by circumstances -- if you try to manipulate those
circumstances, you are not "in the flow." Start where it
is easiest for you. If you experience deep satisfaction
with one aspect of your work, feel what it is like to trust
THERE. If a walk in the woods evokes ecstasy or freedom,
experience being "in the flow" THERE. If you feel total
trust when you are with your partner, let that feeling of
trust expand outwardly to other parts of your life.

I receive trust from the Universe. My trust in the
invisible increases.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Some folks say they only trust what they can see and/or
touch. Even some folks who have deep trust in the invisible
want to have certain things proven to them in the visible
world. You might consider your own areas of trust in both
the invisible and the visible. The process of creation is
the act of moving energy from the invisible (Spirit) into
the visible (matter). This is relatively easy to understand
when you think of certain everyday acts of creation. I
expect that sitting at a blank computer screen receptive to
putting ideas into words is a familiar experience to you.
As the letters click under your fingers, words appear on the
screen because you have moved the invisible to the visible.
All things manifested in this world are the result of
changing the density of energy from Spirit into matter.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Consider those things in your life you trust that are
visible, and those you trust that are invisible. Do you
trust the recklessly driven car in front of you? -- that is
visible. Do you trust the love you share with close
friends -- that is invisible. Do you trust your own
intuitions and inspirations? Do you trust yourself? Today,
consider three events and/or persons in which you believe
the quality of trust is particularly desired or needed.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I open to allow trust to operate in my life. I let
self-trust lead to the path of trusting others.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Trust, of course, is always operating, faithfully and fully.
However, if you are not open to it, you can miss it or
mistake it for something else. Take off the brakes and
blinders. I believe the key issue of trust is self-trust:
when you trust yourself, you know when to trust other persons
and events and ideas. In fact, the energy of self-trust is
a light that shows you the way along the path, pointing to
appropriate places and people. Trust in the moment, because
now is the only time that exists.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Now that you have cleared out a lot of non-trust stuff
during the first week, you are more ready than ever to
open to trust. Open to trust as you open the faucet in
your sink or shower. Test the force and temperature. Let
trust bathe you with its expansive energy. Take a few
moments, right now, to see or imagine that you see the
energy of trust. Soak in it. Feel it. Sense it. Hear it.
Smell it. Love it. Receive it. Absorb it. Trust it. Be
it.

Make this an ACCEPTional week!

 Greetings on the 2nd week of May with the theme of Trust.
During this second week we focus on Receiving/Accepting
Affirmations. Make this an ACCEPTional week!

Remind yourself of your over-arching intention for Trust.

ABOUT RECEIVING/ACCEPTING AFFIRMATIONS and TRUST
Trust is closely related to safety. If you feel safe, you
are more likely to trust. If you feel safe and trusting,
it is easier to open. Sometimes you may be required to step
into a void and pretend that you are trusting when you do
not really FEEL trusting. When you do this, the feeling of
trust can more naturally follow because you have imagined
and practiced the feeling.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
How can you open to trust when you do not feel safe and/or
trusting? Here is a worthy question for you to ponder from
time to time through the week. Notice when you naturally
feel safe and trusting. Notice your thoughts and beliefs;
notice your feelings and sensations. Become aware. You may
find it helpful to develop a vertical number scale -- a
Trust Thermometer -- so that you can determine more easily
how you feel and/or think. For example, you might assign
"-10" at the bottom to the idea of "total distrust" and
"+10" at the top to the idea of "total trust," with various
levels of distrust and trust as gradations between. As you
become more and more aware, you will find it easier to trust
yourself to trust a situation or another person. If your
inner prompting says "be still," be still. If your inner
prompting says "act," act. Trust yourself.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent receiving and accepting for Trust it would be
the affirmation for May 10: "I allow trust to flow through
me. I accept the truth from a higher Source."

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

May 8:
I open to allow trust to operate in my life. I let
self-trust lead me to the path of trusting others.

May 9:
I receive trust from the Universe. My trust in the
invisible increases.

May 10:
I allow trust to flow through me. I accept the truth from
a higher Source.

May 11:
Dear God, allow me to see trust in a way that I can
understand.

May 12:
Trust, you are my friend. I take you everywhere I go.

May 13:
I accept trust, joy, and love in all aspects of my life.

May 14:
I am ready right now to live in trust. The Angel of Trust
is with me.

Make this a deLIGHTful day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I let Spirit (My Higher Self, God, My Spirit Guides, The
One, The Force, Infinite Source) purify any remaining
thoughts and feelings of distrusting.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Today, trust Spirit to handle any non-trust thoughts and/or
feelings that you may have missed. Use your favorite name
for Spirit -- or all the names you can think of.... just in
case. Experience yourself being nurtured by the purity of
Spirit. Trust Spirit. Trust the process as you bring to a
close this week of releasing, cleansing, forgiving,
purifying, clearing, liberating, neutralizing negativity,
and letting go of resistance.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Today, you may want to meditate with what I call the
"White Light of Purification." Perhaps you know about or
already work with "White Light" which is really the same.
However, I like to use the longer name because I
emphasize a specific and unique quality: a pure energy
that has the ability to purify anything unlike itself. Our
human ego can miss or mistake dynamics in our energy
field; Spirit knows purity and light.

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
Tomorrow the Receiving/Accepting affirmations begin.
Today is a good day to cleanse your home or office, to
empty physical trash as well as emotional or mental
non-trust trash. After emptying out, there is more room to
receive and a greater ability to trust. You may also want
to re-visit your over-arching intention for trust.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I turn away from thoughts that suggest there is no trust.
I put my attention on trust-producing ideas.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Continue with the idea of releasing non-trust and the
thoughts that may have created them to make space for the
thoughts that foster trust. Negative and/or outmoded
thoughts, beliefs, intentions, feelings, and emotions that
are inside or outside you can be transmuted to allow trust
to thrive. Think of non-trust as weeds in a garden. Find
methods that are ecologically friendly to remove the weeds
so that trust can survive and grow.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Let's play further with the idea of weeds in a garden.
Let's say that you desire to plant flowers or vegetables.
Pick a favorite. I choose carrots. If I plant radish seeds
I will not get carrots. So I plant carrot seeds. I plant
them in fertile soil where the sun will reach them. And
I make sure they get plenty of water. I am an organic
gardener, so I use compost from previous growth to
fertilize the soil. When weeds sprout, I remove them (to
the compost pile!) so that they do not strangle my
seedlings. I do not use poison to eliminate the weeds
because that will disturb the environment. I trust carrots
to grow from the carrot seeds. I remain attentive to
neutralizing the weeds of non-trust and to taking care of
my carrot crop. If I get sloppy, my carrots may still grow,
but they will not be as healthy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I release memories that allowed belief in fear and lack of
trust.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Surely you can name past situations that suggest that
you are justified in believing in fear and/or doubt and/or
lack of trust. Such situations can be used as growth
opportunities so that you learn to choose trust and love
and freedom regardless of immediate circumstances or
appearances. When you train yourself to put your trust in
the eternal invisible more than the temporary visible, you
will discover that the energy of Trust transforms what you
ordinarily call the "invisible" into the "visible."

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I suggest that you use the simplest, least invasive ways
to release these fear-based memories. Here are some
examples: On the physical level, exercise to stimulate
the cardiovascular system and/or use your breath to
release with each exhalation. On the emotional level, cry
and/or scream and/or write and/or laugh - no subject is
needed, just clear the emotions by experiencing them.
On the mental level, journal your thoughts and/or draw
pictures that represent whatever has your attention. On
the spiritual level, meditate regularly and ask higher
consciousness and the angels to lighten your load.
(Take a deep breath and recall your over-arching
intention for Trust.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I let go of everything that gets in the way of trust.
Angels clear the path.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
As you are today affirming that you are letting go of
everything that gets in the way of trust, remind yourself
that it is not necessary to know the particulars -- trash
is trash. Taking time to figure everything out can slow
your progress. Here are some of the common barriers to
trust: betrayal, hurt, fear, untruth, resistance, half-
truth, false belief, distortion, confusion, jealousy,
indecision. Together, let all these go. At an earlier time,
perhaps, they were important or necessary. Today, angels
support you in letting them go.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Here is an image that comes to my mind for today's
affirmation: Several burly angles are walking right in front
of you with swords and sickles, cutting away anything that
is obsolete or decayed. Behind you, other powerful angels
pick up the stuff you are releasing so that you do not
leave a mess as you proceed through the day giving your
attention to what you desire. These angels support you in
a freedom that transcends human understanding. Today,
work with this suggested image or paint one of your own.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I rescind obsolete vows of silence and unworthiness. The
energy of these obsolete vows is now available for more
enjoyable use.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This affirmation rescinds or neutralizes outdated vows. On
the second day of each month, DailyAffirm presents some
variation of the "vows of limitation" affirmation, with the
caveat that you not become overly intrigued by the vows.
Some of these old, outdated vows are very potent -- so potent
that powerful beings have been limited, slowed down, even
stopped. As you neutralize the negativity of these outdated
vows, you experience freedom. Just remember to give more
attention to the freedom than to the vows.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Do you feel that you cannot speak about something? Perhaps
it is time to speak! Do you believe that you are unworthy?
Now, feel your self-worth! Have you experienced
betrayal? This is the perfect time to move on! Do you
feel you do not have enough? Know that you have all you
need, right now! It is time to let go of the past.
Recently when I was doing a session with a client who
needed to let go, he said through his sobs, "I don't know
HOW to let go." How wonderful! He was letting go
without even knowing that he was letting go. Tears are
a deeply healing way to release. Hint: it is the
RESISTANCE that you most need to let go of.

process of rescinding limiting beliefs This extensive

ABOUT YOUR INTENTION
If you have not already done so, please identify your over-
arching intention for Trust. That is, develop a statement
that guides you in the exploration and embodiment of trust.
Intention is the energy or consciousness from which actions
emerge. If you are uncertain how to write this intention,
just make an attempt. Keep it simple. You have 31 days
to work with the intention and the theme, so let your state-
ment change and deepen. Here are a few suggestions for
statements of intention about the theme of Trust: *To
experience the world as a trusting place. *To resonate
with the consciousness of trust. *I am trust, trusting, and
trustworthy. *To trust myself. *To be a place for trust to
thrive.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I give myself permission to release fear and anger from
every level of the energy field, with effortless grace.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
My vision for each of you who reads DailyAffirm is to live
in effortless grace. You can let your normal breathing
assist you by breathing in light and trust, and breathing
out fear and anger. The words "fear" and/or "anger" can be
replaced by any concepts or words that capture the idea of
interfering with trust. Release those persons / places /
things / ideas that interfere with trust. This affirmation
also opens up every layer and level of your energy field,
setting up a release of persons / places / things / ideas
that may not be in your ordinary consciousness.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you are working with these cleansing affirmations all
this week, recognize that you are activating a release of
those things that get in the way of trust. If you become
aware of some discomfort, simply turn your attention to
something that is more comfortable. The discomfort can
be as slight as a twinge or as intense as a "healing crisis,"
which unfortunately is often called "illness." When the
discomfort gets your attention, acknowledge it swiftly, thank
your body for the information, then place your attention
elsewhere. Let grace prevail.

With these dynamics in mind, I recommend that you write
today's affirmation as a way of activating the release at a
deep level. I have developed a process which is described
in the book, "Affirmations: A Pathway to Transformation"
and in an article entitled, "Writing Affirmations for
Empowerment" which is available at my Web Site.

Make this a wondrous week!

Greetings on the 1st week of May with the theme of Trust.
During this first week we focus on Releasing/Cleansing
Affirmations. Make this a wondrous week!

ABOUT YOUR INTENTION
If you have not already done so, please identify your over-
arching intention for Trust. That is, develop a statement
that guides you in the exploration and embodiment of trust.
Intention is the energy or consciousness from which actions
emerge. If you are uncertain how to write this intention,
just make an attempt. Keep it simple. You have 31 days
to work with the intention and the theme, so let your state-
ment change and deepen. Here are a few suggestions for
statements of intention about the theme of Trust: *To
experience the world as a trusting place. *To resonate
with the consciousness of trust. *I am trust, trusting, and
trustworthy. *To trust myself. *To be a place for trust to
thrive.

ABOUT RELEASING/CLEANSING AFFIRMATIONS and TRUST
It is possible (although by no means certain) that as you
are releasing and cleansing this week, energies /
emotions / thoughts of the opposite of trust might appear:
for example, distrust, mistrust, broken trust. To this
dynamic I say: trust the process! The process IS working.
To live in a state of trust, we must also know how to
recognize distrust, mistrust, broken trust or other
resistance.

Consider this. You meet someone for the first time. You
immediately feel distrusting. Where does this distrust
come from? The several possibilities are: from you, from
that person, from the environment / situation / others, from
all or any combination of the above. You are not
responsible for the trust / distrust / mistrust that someone
else carries in his or her energy field, nor do you need to
fully understand it in the specific situation. You are,
however, responsible for your own trust / distrust / mistrust
because you will connect with others who are similar in their
relationship to trust.
Put your attention on self-trust and
everything else will find its rightful place.

ABOUT THE PROCESS
As you proceed through these first seven days of May, I
suggest that you pay particular attention to how you and
others use the word "trust." Just notice and be taught
about the consciousness of trust by the way the word is
used to represent this consciousness. It is the conscious-
ness that is more meaningful than the word chosen to
represent the consciousness.

I recommend that you write one or more of this week's
affirmations. I have developed a process which is
described in the book, "Affirmations: A Pathway to
Transformation" and in an article entitled, "Writing
Affirmations for Empowerment." Please see the infor-
mation below for requesting this article via email.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent releasing and cleansing for Trust it would
be the affirmation for May 1: I give myself permission
to release fear and anger from every level of the energy
field, with effortless grace. You may prefer to use words
other than "fear" and "anger" -- choose words that are most
relevant to your own needs.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

May 1:
I give myself permission to release fear and anger from
every level of the energy field, with effortless grace.

May 2:
I rescind obsolete vows of silence and unworthiness. The
energy of these obsolete vows is now available for more
enjoyable use.

May 3:
I let go of everything that gets in the way of trust.
Angels clear the path.

May 4:
I release memories that allowed belief in fear and lack of
trust.

May 5:

and trust. Ties to despair are dissolved.

May 6:
I turn away from thoughts that suggest there is no trust.
I put my attention on trust-producing ideas.

May 7:
I let Spirit (My Higher Self, God, My Spirit Guides, The
One, The Force, Infinite Source) purify any remaining
thoughts and feelings of distrusting.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today is an opportunity for clarity.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
"Today is an opportunity" is printed on the inside flap of
the book on which these affirmations are based. When we
consider that every day is an opportunity, we are right! We
find what we seek. We feel Clarity in every cell of our
being as we bring this month to a close.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
This is the last day of April; this is the last day for
exploring clarity as a theme until next year. But, as with
all the monthly themes, you will find that clarity is an
important energy to tap into on a regular basis. As you
reflect on your experiences this month, consider how you
have changed. Many of you send email messages to tell me
how these affirmations are supporting you in changing your
consciousness. When you notice your own evolution, you
evolve even more.

ABOUT OUR NEXT THEME
The flavor of the affirmations changes most dramatically
from the last day of one month to the first day of a new
month. The theme for the new month is "Trust" -- one of my
favorite concepts. Please identify an over-arching
intention, in which or after which you may choose to define
trust.

ABOUT FORWARDING THE DAILYAFFIRM MESSAGE
If you choose to forward the DailyAffirm message to others,
please include a message of your own to the recipient. You
may also want to eliminate the "easy unsubscribe"
instructions at the bottom while retaining the subscribe and
information email addresses.

desire.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Keep it simple. Say "yes" to those things you want to
integrate into your life. Say yes to what you want. It is
VERY simple. And, yes, sometimes this is challenging, even
difficult. Sometimes it takes longer than you think
possible or appropriate or convenient. This approach is not
simplistic nor disrespectful; this approach is not simple-
minded nor boring. But it IS simple. Say yes to clarity.

ABOUT THE BOOK OF THE MONTH RECOMMENDATION
This month's recommended book speaks eloquently to the
importance of living in the present moment. Greater and
greater clarity comes into our lives when we practice
awareness of the now. The constant now is a clear
consciousness from which we can create magnificence. I
recommend "The Power of Now: A Guide to Spiritual
Enlightenment" by Eckhart Tolle. Please read my book

I act with purposeful awareness of clarity.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
It is easy to be aware of something, yet to be purposefully
aware of clarity in the moment of an act is powerful enough
to uplifts our consciousness. Our awareness is a gift --
to ourselves and to others. In addition to giving our
purposeful awareness to clarity, we also give it to our life
mission and to the little situations of our lives. To be
aware in and of each moment is one of the primary goals of
the human experience. We rejoice in the opportunity to be
alive and awake.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Today you may find it helpful to reconnect with your
over-arching intention for clarity so that the integration
of this week's affirmations is based on the intention you
have chosen. Perhaps the over-arching intention feels
different now from the time you first set it. If so, this
might be because you have been becoming more purposefully
aware each day as you have given your attention to clarity.
Change your over-arching intention, if necessary, or reflect
on its deeper meaning.

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
This is the last of the Acting/Claiming Affirmations for
this month. During the next two days, Integrating/Embodying
Affirmations end the month's focus on clarity. Today is a
good day to check for a final action you might want to take
to demonstrate clarity. Of course, each day forward you
might want to claim and demonstrate clarity and facilitate
its integration.

I let every act be an act of clarity.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
I feel the best way to learn clarity (or anything else) is
through experience. Actions are one type of experience. So
today -- and any day that we want to know clarity -- we
associate each action with the concept and/or energy of
clarity. We can know great power in the naming of our
experiences. If we decide that every act is an act of
clarity, it IS (even if we experience unclarity). This is
focus, not denial.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Here is an exercise you can play with today. In every
action that you experience or observe today, see (or hear or
sense or feel) clarity. Even if you are not quite sure what
the clarity is, affirm that it exists in the action. If you
watch a sports event, notice clarity in the activity. As
you talk with someone, notice where the clarity is in the
conversation. As you eat your meals, notice how clarity
shows up in the food or on the plate or at the table. If
"unclarity" comes into your awareness, let that be the
aspect of clarity that you are exploring.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I draw a circle of clarity around myself to enhance my
familiarity with clarity.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Here is a poem by Edwin Markham that supports today's
affirmation:
He drew a circle that shut me out --
Heretic, rebel, a thing to flout.
But Love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle that took him in!

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Let your circle of clarity expand and shrink as necessary
today. When you talk with someone on the telephone, the
Internet or in person, consider how large the circle is that
encases each of you. Also consider qualities of your circle
other than size: color, sound, texture, density, vibration,
depth. Envision the whole planet in this circle of clarity
-- sharing your gift of consciousness with all humanity.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I manifest all things in association with clarity. I
breathe clarity into my body.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Everything in the physical plane has been manifested; that
is, everything we see/touch/hear, etc. moved from the
invisible to the visible. This is true of us as humans, it
is true of our computers, it is true of a song. Every
thing. Every being. When we dip into the consciousness of
clarity, either we create something which is clear or we use
the energy of clarity to cleanse something which has already
been created.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
With today's affirmation in mind, you might enjoy
experimenting with your breath. Think of yourself as a
clarity-breathing (rather than a fire-breathing) dragon or
other creature. Breathe clarity into your physical body,
into today's top-priority project, into your kitchen, into
your telephone calls. Let yourself experience the lightness
of this process. (Oh, if you become light-headed, you are
hyperventilating. Slow down. You will accomplish more by
slowing down.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I claim clarity. I claim my power.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
It is important that we not be deceived by the simplicity of
today's affirmation. Instead, we accept its truth. From
time to time we may have a clear vision of what to do, yet
we hesitate or doubt. Hesitation and doubt can be our
friends when they lead us to ask meaningful questions, but
not when they stop us from taking the actions our inner
wisdom has shown us.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
If you struggle with claiming clarity and/or power, you
might like to try this simple technique. Select an object
in your home or office -- anything will do: a stapler or
plate or toothpick. Place or observe the object sitting on
a table or desk near you. Let the object take the role of
"clarity" or "power" or a specific vision or decision.
(Even a toothpick ought to have an opportunity to play a
role now and then. After all, YOU get to play roles all
the time!) Then claim the object effortlessly and playfully
-- perhaps you seize it or lift it up with your two hands
joyously or put it in your pocket secretly. Notice HOW you
claim the object -- claim your power and clarity as
effortlessly.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I act with clarity in my heart. I speak with clarity on my
lips. I walk with clarity in my feet.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
I just love this affirmation because it associates the idea
of clarity with the physical body. Frequently we have
high-minded thoughts that we do not carry through in our
actions. Clarity can be seen in the physical world. It can
also be felt and sensed and spoken and touched. To feel a
vision of clarity in our hearts helps us to embrace the
idea. To taste a vision of clarity in the cells of our lips
helps us to speak the idea. To sense a vision of clarity in
the soles/souls of our feet brings the vision into
manifestation.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
A process I often use with individual clients involves
energetically moving a vision (or goal or desired result)
from the head/thinking area downward through the body. When
a vision is integrated into your feet, it is easier to step
into its manifestation. Incidentally, I take the vision
even further than the feet so that it is anchored below the
feet, sometimes as far down as the center of the earth.
When a vision of high intention is anchored into the earth,
you are supported by the energy of Mother Earth. You
manifest Heaven on Earth. What is your vision of clarity?

Affirmations Week of April 22-30

Greetings on the 4th week of April with the theme of Clarity.
During this fourth week we focus on Acting/Claiming
Affirmations. This message also includes the affirmations
for the last days of the month when we focus on Integrating/
Embodying Affirmations. Make this a powerful week-plus!

ABOUT ACTING/CLAIMING AFFIRMATIONS and CLARITY
To act with clarity is powerful when we acknowledge divine
clarity. If we believe we know who is right and wrong and
who is bad and good, this is not divine clarity, but self
righteousness. A clear and high intention sets the
foundation for actions that are clear and rewarding. Every
action we take is an opportunity for personal growth and
empowerment. More important, every action is an opportunity
for joy and further clarity.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Each day this week, you may want to become more conscious of
each action in these ways: (1) Set an intention for the
action; (2) Write down the intention; (3) Be fully present
in the action; (4) Reflect on the action afterward to
determine if what you manifested was in alignment with the
original intention; (5) Be good to yourself while you are
learning as well as after mastering this process.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent being and intending for clarity it would be "I
let every act be an act of clarity" which is the affirmation
for April 27. It associates the idea of clarity with
everything that we do.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

April 22:
Clarity energizes my actions. Every breath I take clears my
energy field.

April 23:
I act with clarity in my heart. I speak with clarity on my
lips. I walk with clarity in my feet.

April 24:
I claim clarity. I claim my power.

April 25:
I manifest all things in association with clarity. I
breathe clarity into my body.

April 26:
I draw a circle of clarity around myself to enhance my
familiarity with clarity.

April 27:
I let every act be an act of clarity.

April 28:
I act with purposeful awareness of clarity.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT INTEGRATING/EMBODYING AFFIRMATIONS and CLARITY
These two days, following the four weeks of April, present
an opportunity to integrate the ideas about clarity that we
wish to take with us on the rest of our journey. Anything
that does not fit, we leave alone. If we try to take on
something that we cannot assimilate, we make the releasing
work of the beginning of May more difficult. We trust
ourselves to know what works for us.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
You may find it helpful to identify some of the affirmations
that stood out as particularly meaningful to you this month.
If you have kept a journal, you will reinforce and therefore
further integrate the ideas by reviewing your journal
entries. Rereading selected messages for this month will
assist you in embodying the concepts.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

April 29:
Yes to Clarity!

April 30:
Today is an opportunity for clarity.

Make this a breath-taking day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Clarity energizes my actions. Every breath I take clears my
energy field.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The first Acting/Claiming affirmation this month is a slow
and gentle one. We start with something we do most of the
time unconsciously: breathing! We empower our breath,
which is always with us, to bring clarity to our energy
field. In addition, we let clarity energize all our actions
-- walking, sitting, eating, talking, minor and major
decision making, and everything we think and do.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I suggest you take a few moments to consider at least one
action that you expect to take this week that requires that
you be clear. It can be an action that is small or large, a
one-time event or repeated actions, an inner-directed or
outer-directed activity, a situation involving just yourself
or many others. As soon as you have identified the action,
remind yourself of your over-arching intention for the
month. Writing all this down will enhance your process and
make it easier to reflect after the event or actions.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Clarity enhances all my thoughts and feelings. My path is
clear.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
As we affirm that all our thoughts and feelings are enhanced
by clarity, our path opens up. Tapping into the idea or
essence of clarity provides us with potent energy for our
thoughts and feelings. Our daily activities are the
vehicles into which we place the fuel of clarity to move us
along the path. We are all going to the same place,
although our journeys and vehicles and experiences vary.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Today is a good day to recognize the extent to which you are
enriched by the thoughts and feelings about clarity that
have come to you in these three weeks. Perhaps a particular
thought or feeling stands out as most important or perhaps
many thoughts and feelings rush to you for attention. Is
there something more you want to explore about any thought
or feeling? Is there anything else you need to understand
or recognize about clarity or your intentions? What do you
need to know about your thoughts and feelings? What else do
you need to comprehend or accept about yourself?

consider anything else that is relevant to you about clarity
and/or your relationship to it. Be certain you are clear
about clarity before you affirm actions and make claims.
Tap your sense of joy or spontaneity as you focus on taking
action steps.

Make this a divine day!


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I understand the meaning of clarity. I know that clarity
comes from the divine.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Recognizing that clarity comes from the divine deepens our
understanding and appreciation of this month's theme. Since
today's affirmation acknowledges comprehension of clarity,
it is an ideal day to re-visit our over-arching intention
for the month. We open to understanding on all levels --
physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually --
recognizing that understanding is not simply an intellectual
exercise. We align with the divine.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I suggest that you reflect on your relationship with the
Divine. You may find that you choose to experience a deeper
meditation than your usual practice, or walk longer in the
woods or mountains, or journal at your keyboard. The divine
is everywhere. You need not go on a formal retreat to be
conscious of the divine. You are from the divine. You are
with the divine. You are the divine. You are divine. Just
realize it.

Make this a memorable day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I remember clarity. I am clear. I remember who I Am.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
We sometimes have difficulty remembering dates or what we
wore last Friday or what we said in the heat of anger. This
is one type of remembering -- which we can surely include in
today's affirmation. However, the affirmation challenges us
to remember at a deeper level. To remember "Who I am" helps
us to be centered in our mission. To remember "Who I Am"
can lead us to mystical experiences. To remember "Who I
Am" clarifies our presence on the earth plane.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
You may find that you wish to add other sentences or repeat
each of these in a rhythmical cadence, as a chant. You may
even hear a drumbeat as you read or say the words. Sounds
are powerful for creation. Feelings enhance your process.
Music enhances your memory. You may also find that saying
the words "I remember" when referring to minor details
assists you in the deeper remembering. And if you hear
yourself say repeatedly "I can't remember," today is a
memorable day to stop that habit, unless it is about
something that you prefer to forget.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I envision a clear path. My mission is to see the world
clearly.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
A path of clarity opens up for us because of our intention
to be clear. Our path may be straight or meandering, wide
or narrow, high or low, fast or slow. As we walk along our
own unique path, we grow and develop in a way that helps us
to understand more clearly about our purpose in the world.
At times we may be unclear because it is unnecessary to know
all the details, however, we affirm clarity while trusting
the degree of clarity that we receive.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
While you are in motion today (walking, running,
contemplating, driving, talking, etc), consider the dynamics
of your path. How does it feel? What does it look like?
Where is it going? What is your intention as you move along
the path? Do you desire to change its direction or other
aspects of your journey? What do you most need or desire to
know with respect to your path, to clarity, and/or to your
mission in the world?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

High intention operates in the midst of clarity. Clarity
operates in the midst of high intention.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
We choose either or both statements to be our affirmation
today. We feel the movement of clarity in the high
intention we hold for events and experiences. We become
spaces for clarity to operate. We imagine ourselves as
vessels or channels or conduits for clarity. We open and
let ourselves experience the fullness that we came into the
world to know, waiting for no condition and lacking nothing
essential for our process. Our intention is aligned with
our life mission.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Two days ago, I suggested that you set an intention for an
upcoming event/situation. Did you set an intention? Has
the event/situation happened yet? If so, what was your
experience with having a high intention? If the event/
situation has not yet occurred or is ongoing, continue to
work with high intention and clarity so that you become
familiar with the consciousness and the feelings.

Make this an enlightened day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I deepen my awareness of the consciousness of clarity, from
which my enlightened actions spring.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Clarity is/has a consciousness which is discernible. Each
day this month we are walking closer and closer to a deep
understanding of clarity. Today, we touch this
consciousness of clarity in a way that has meaning for us.
We recognize that our actions spring from the consciousness
with which we resonate. If we resonate with violence, our
actions are violent toward ourselves and/or others. If we
resonate with peace, our actions are peaceful toward
ourselves and/or others. Our task is to stay constantly in
the consciousness of clarity so that we do not confuse
ourselves or others by being inconsistent.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Imagine that the consciousness of clarity is a pool of
substance, perhaps like water -- maybe thicker, maybe
thinner. Imagine also the container that holds the
substance that you choose. Now, go dip into the pool. You
may want to swim in the pool, naked or with a bathing suit.
Do what feels safe, even if a bit unfamiliar. Touch
clarity. What does it feel like? See clarity. What does
it look like? Hear clarity. What does it sound like? Know
clarity. What is its wisdom? The more familiar you are
with the consciousness of clarity, the more you will be able
to sustain a relationship with clarity.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I know that clarity leads to the highest good for all.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
It is important to learn to hold an intention for the
highest good for all. This is true whether we are clear or
not clear about the dynamics of the situation. In fact,
intending the highest good BRINGS us clarity. High
intention and clarity go hand in hand, like friends.
Clearly, one of the most potent ideas we can hold is that
life operates for the highest good for all. This idea is
one of the cornerstones of the foundation for the new
paradigm of living.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Please reconnect with your over-arching intention for
clarity. This week, the Being/Intending affirmations bring
the idea of intention into your everyday life. I suggest
you identify a specific event that is coming up for you -- a
meeting or a presentation or a task. (Right now, before you
close up this message.) You may find it particularly
helpful to identify something that is challenging you or
something about which you have been procrastinating. Set an
intention for clarity in this event/situation or use today's
affirmation as your intention for this event/situation.
Keep tapping the energy of high intention and the energy of
clarity as you proceed toward and through this situation and
this day.

Be This Week

Greetings on the 3rd week of April with the theme of
Clarity. During this third week we focus on Being/Intending
Affirmations. Be this week!

ABOUT BEING/INTENDING AFFIRMATIONS and CLARITY
As you know, I recommend at the beginning of each month that
you create or identify an over-arching intention for the
theme. Here in the middle of the month, we explore
intention more deeply. "To intend" and "to be" are similar,
but not precisely the same -- which is why I slash them. It
is wise to explore intention and being BEFORE acting and
claiming and more meaningful to do so AFTER emptying
(Releasing/Cleansing) and opening to be filled anew
(Receiving/Accepting).

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I have found that folks who really want to learn about
INTENTION are greatly supported by WRITING statements of
intention for simple, ordinary events in their lives. Say,
for example, you have a meeting next Thursday which you
believe may be challenging. In the past, this group has had
tedious meetings with little accomplished. So, you set a
high intention for the meeting and write it down: "To
experience open communication and clear direction for the
highest good for all." Watch your meeting change! Please
note: setting high intention is NOT a technique, but a
powerful principle. Writing down the high intention is a
technique. Please also note: you may want to establish
goals and outcomes for events IN ADDITION to high intention.
The intention is the consciousness in which you are present
to the meeting; goals and outcomes are related to the
actions of the meeting.

I find that folks who really want to learn about BEING are
greatly supported by various forms of meditation and
relaxation, depending on their life style. Many like to go
to the mountain top or the deep woods for solitude or to
listen deeply to their inner guidance. These are great
approaches AND it is important to be and to intend in the
midst of an ordinary day.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent being and intending for clarity it would be
"My intention is to be clear for the highest good of all."
It is clear and straightforward.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

April 15:
I know that clarity leads to the highest good for all.

April 16:
I deepen my awareness of the consciousness of clarity, from
which my enlightened actions spring.

April 17:
High intention operates in the midst of clarity. Clarity
operates in the midst of high intention.

April 18:
I envision a clear path. My mission is to see the world
clearly.

April 19:
I remember clarity. I am clear. I remember who I Am.

April 20:
I understand the meaning of clarity. I know that clarity
comes from the divine.

April 21:
Clarity enhances all my thoughts and feelings. My path is
clear.

Make this an expectant day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am ready right now to live in clarity.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Being ready is not a wimpy position. It is powerful to be
in a state of readiness, especially for the unknown. If we
must have everything proven to us before we are ready, we
miss opportunities -- opportunities for clarity as well as
the many other events and conditions we desire in our lives.
We open to feelings of readiness and expectancy and buoyancy
and aliveness. We recognize that being ready is a state of
mind that we choose.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Are you ready? Really? This is the last day of the
Receiving/Accepting Affirmations. You may wish to spend a
little time contemplating this idea of readiness. Here are
a few questions to inspire you: How do you know that you
are ready and/or not ready? Are your senses sharper or
duller? Do you stand differently? What is the rhythm of
your heart beat? How does the energy flow through you?
What else do you notice? How do you know, without any
doubt, that you are ready and/or not ready?

http://www.mhmail.com/articles/decision-making.html.html

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
Tomorrow the Being/Intending affirmations begin. Today is a
good day to test your readiness and to reflect on the
clarity you have already received so that you can explore
more deeply who you are. Please re-visit your over-arching
intention for clarity because you will use that as a foundation
for this further exploration.

Make this an extraordinary day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I accept clarity, peace, and order in all aspects of life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
To deepen the meaning of today's affirmation, let us suppose
that clarity and peace and order are physical things with
consciousness. (They are not physical, of course, but let's
play with this.....) So, let's say that clarity is white
and stands two feet tall and has a face that smiles. Peace
is pink, round and fluffy like clouds, and sings a sweet
melody. Order is straight like a pole and green, offering
strength. If we then invite these three objects into one
part of our lives, what happens? Something changes,
obviously! What and how? That's for each one of us to
experience individually.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
So often in a consultation when a person is close to
breakthrough on an issue, he or she reaches the realization
that "self acceptance" is the key. As you play today with
clarity and peace and order as objects (if you choose to
accept this assignment), notice how much easier it is to
accept yourself and your life. Everything in life is always
changing. Each moment is an opportunity to experience
change in the direction you truly desire.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Clarity, you are my friend. I am willing for you to
surround me with your energy.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Today, we acknowledge Clarity as a friend and invite Clarity
to surround us. Every month on this DailyAffirm List, I
talk about this idea of friendship. A True Friend is loving
and nonjudgmental, always available and accessible. Such a
Friend does not have the frailty of a human friend. We must
give ourselves and our human friends the space to make
mistakes and forget and not be there for us or others.
Clarity, however, does not fail us. We may misinterpret or
misunderstand, but Clarity is clarity. We let clarity be
our friend.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
If Clarity is feminine for you, let her surround you as a
nurturing mother, wise grandmother, loving sister, or caring
aunt. If Clarity is masculine for you, let him surround you
as a protective father, wise grandfather, loving brother, or
caring uncle. Or just call Clarity "friend" without thought
of gender or similar ideas that separate you from others.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear God, allow me to see clarity in a way that I can
receive.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This simple request opens us further to clarity, asking that
our direct experiences teach us in ways that are meaningful
to us. We may say we WANT to receive clarity, even desire
it intensely, yet be unable to accept it. As we work with
this affirmation today, it is helpful to consider all the
different ways in which clarity comes to us. This
understanding of clarity assists us during the rest of this
month's exploration and also enriches our lives generally.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
So, consider, HOW do you receive clarity? Clarity can come
at the supermarket check-out line, in a book that falls from
a shelf into your hands, or buried in the middle of a
long-winded paragraph. I sometimes go to a workshop or
other event specifically asking for an answer to a question
or a decision. I may even have the insight that the answer
will come to me in the middle of the event or during a break.
Everyone and everything is my teacher, so I listen in ways
that I can listen and see in the ways that I can see. Who
or what teaches you today about clarity? (P.S., For those
of you who are offended by my use of the word "God," please
see comments with the April 9 affirmation.)

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I allow clarity to flow through me, filling my cells and
every fiber of my being.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Sometimes we want clarity so much that we grasp at it or we
grasp it. Clarity, however, is something to BE rather than
to possess. I consider that clarity is both a quality and
an energy that must move. It is light. Clarity that flows
through us is powerful -- if we try to capture it, we lose
it. Today's affirmation supports us in vibrating to clarity
so that as we need it, we can call upon it in unlimited
supply.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
If you breathed in yesterday's affirmation as suggested, you
will find today's affirmation the perfect follow up. Let
clarity flow through you, breathe through you. Let your
cells be touched, even filled, with clarity. Every fiber,
every particle, every atom opens to clarity. Accept clarity
as part of you. Let clarity act as you. Today, how can you
open even more to clarity?

Make this a creative day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I receive clarity from the Universe. I resonate with the
creative energy of clarity.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
As we open to clarity, we receive more and more clarity.
Clarity has a resonance, a vibration, which we can discern.
As we open to receive this affirmation, we become more
familiar with the vibration of clarity. We take a few
moments right now in our busy day to breathe this
affirmation into our consciousness so that we can feel or
sense the resonance of clarity. Non-clarity also has a
distinct vibration. Discernment is knowing the difference.
Judgment is saying one is bad and the other, good.
Happiness comes when we notice the difference and make an
empowered choice without disdain.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
My intention is to use words that are inclusive and general
enough for you to relate to and/or understand. When I use
the word "Universe" I know there is the risk that you will
object because your preferred word is "God" -- a word
that offends others. One of the reasons that I often
encourage you to select your own words, or change the
affirmation, is to make the process more personal for you.
As you take responsibility for your own process, you
accelerate. In addition, you enhance your tolerance for
others' viewpoints and lifestyles. As you are resonating
with clarity today, be conscious of your breath.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I open to allow clarity to operate in my life, in all life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Most of these DailyAffirm affirmations are written so that
we can apply them to our personal lives, right where we live.
From time to time, I like to mention the rest of humanity,
and indeed the whole universe. Today's affirmation is an
intention to invite clarity into ALL of life. One Life. As
we make this invitation, clarity becomes more familiar.
Non-clarity will also be part of our experience from time to
time, but we affirm that it is clarity that we prefer.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I suggest that you create a picture that for you represents
opening to clarity in order to enhance your process. You
may draw on a past experience or remember a scene in a movie
that represents this for you. Here are a few suggestions
that might inspire you: A large light bulb or flood light
on a path; A child (maybe even you!) in a gentle rainstorm
with arms and face open upward; A flashlight changing to a
flood light and then to sunlight as you recognize more
deeply who you are; A ball called "Clarity" guiding you.
Let your picture open and support you.

ABOUT THE BOOK OF THE MONTH RECOMMENDATION
Those of you who have participated regularly on this
DailyAffirm process know that I regularly talk about the
importance of being in the present moment. My perspective
is that there is only one time in which we experience life:
the present moment. The idea of living in the present and
in the Presence is a concept that cuts through all the
monthly themes. I have observed that greater and greater
clarity comes to those who practice giving their attention
to the now. I am delighted to introduce you to this
well-written book. And, as with other writings that are
conceived with high intention, a high consciousness comes
through with the words. The book is "The Power of Now: A
Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment" by Eckhart Tolle. Please

Make this an ACCEPTional week!

Greetings on the 2nd week of April with the theme of
Clarity. During this second week we focus on Receiving
/Accepting Affirmations.


ABOUT RECEIVING/ACCEPTING AFFIRMATIONS and CLARITY
This week's affirmations are focused on opening to clarity.
We receive or accept with the same consciousness in which we
give, so this week we look at both giving and receiving and
the accompanying attitudes. Examples of receiving are:
meditation, relaxing at the beach, having a massage,
listening to a friend. Examples of giving are: writing a
payment check to the electric company, giving a special item
wrapped in colorful paper to Grandma, expressing a compliment.
Receiving is receiving. Giving is giving. Also, giving is
receiving; receiving is giving. The package is merely the
vehicle for our consciousness. The consciousness of love
and peace and abundance can permeate all our experience --
giving, receiving, starting, stopping, emptying out, acting,
integrating, etc.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
When I think of the concept of "opening" I often think of a
child in a gentle rainstorm with arms and face upward, with
an open heart and total trust in the universe. Sometimes
this picture includes movement, like a dance; sometimes it
is more like a still photo. Always, it is joyful. Your
picture may vary from mine, but here is the key question:
What is the consciousness of your receiving and accepting?
I encourage you to pay special attention to this during this
week.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent receiving and accepting for clarity it would be
the affirmation for April 13: "I accept clarity, peace, and
order in all aspects of my life." It is simple, yet
expansive.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

April 8:
I open to allow clarity to operate in my life, in all life.

April 9:
I receive clarity from the Universe. I resonate with the
creative energy of clarity.

April 10:
I allow clarity to flow through me, filling my cells and
every fiber of my being.

April 11:
Dear God, allow me to see clarity in a way that I can
receive.

April 12:
Clarity, you are my friend. I am willing for you to
surround me with your energy.

April 13:
I accept clarity, peace, and order in all aspects of life.

April 14:
I am ready right now to live in clarity.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Make this a pure day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I let Spirit (My Higher Self, God, My Spirit Guides, The
One, The Force, Infinite Source) clear any remaining
thoughts and feelings of disorder and impurity.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
On this last day of this first week of April, we trust
Spirit to clear away thoughts and feelings that may
interfere with our experience of clarity. We choose one or
any combination of names for Spirit. Disorder and impurity
are suggested ideas that reflect "non-clarity." Other
possibilities are confusion, distortions, toxicity, fog,
dizziness, contamination, disorder, indecision. While we
sometimes get distracted by words, we know that Spirit needs
no words. We trust. We surrender to Spirit for the Light.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
This is the last of the official "clearing" days this month
for the theme of clarity. However, you are likely to
continue to experience clearing for clarity because this is
a process, not a singular event. You collected non-clarity
in cycles; now you release in cycles. So, take a moment to
reflect on anything unclear that may seem to remain within
your consciousness that needs to be cleared or cleaned or
explored further. You may be able to name it specifically
or not. Simply trust that when using today's affirmation
all that is unclear becomes clear in the right and perfect
time. Trust the process.

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
Tomorrow we re-focus the theme of clarity with affirmations
that reflect the ideas of Receiving/Accepting. To open up
to clarity in your life can be the first step in receiving
all the blessings you desire. You may also want to re-visit
your over-arching intention for clarity as you shift from
this week's type of affirmation to tomorrow's.

Make this a clear day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I dissolve thoughts that suggest there is no clarity. I say
goodbye to confusion.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This affirmation continues the ideas expressed in the last
few days. We say goodbye to confusion, goodbye to anything
that is unclear. The next time we meet non-clarity we can
recognize it and say goodbye again. We put our attention on
what we desire to manifest -- clear vision, true mission,
calming peace, unconditional love, rewarding relationships.
When we give our attention to such desires, confusion
disappears.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you continue to neutralize those things that have been or
have appeared to be distorted, you can use many different
techniques and strategies. One way is always with you and
costs nothing: your breath. You can use your breath to
breathe in clarity and peace; then breathe out confusion and
disharmony. Breathe in spirit; breathe out illusions.
Breathe in light; breathe out anything unlike the light.
Create your own breathing mantra and let your breath work
for you on multiple levels. When you are ready, you can
breathe in clarity and breathe out clarity.

As you become aware of specific beliefs that are limiting
thoughts, you may wish to return to working with the
affirmations of April 1 and April 2. You can adjust either
or both affirmations to incorporate the limiting beliefs
that you discover, if you choose. You will find that
writing these affirmations according to the process we have
developed will be particularly effective.

I cut negative bonds of attachment to disorder, bewilderment,
and contamination.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Disorder, bewilderment, and contamination are not usually
much fun. Experiences such as these were/are usually
created from ignorance. We can cut the bonds that are
attached to the people, places, things, and ideas that are
or represent disorder, bewilderment, and contamination. We
can use a knife, a sledge hammer, a fire torch, a pair of
manicure scissors -- whatever tools are required for the
job. We ask angels and beings of light to carry off the
bonds so that they do not create any further negativity. We
spend only a brief time looking at that which we are
releasing and turn our attention to that which we desire.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you ponder your own clearing and healing on this day,
consider also that many on the planet are still in deep
ignorance about love and abundance and peace. We live in
the human flesh to experience joy as we manifest and create.
Our manifestations and creations take place wherever each
one of us is planted -— like a flower seed sprouts and grows
where it is planted -- not complaining, not requesting to be
somewhere or something else. All the flower knows how to do
is bloom. So as you cut negative bonds of attachment today,
bloom!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I release memories that appear as confusion and separation.
I release the dark window through which I have seen the world.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Any memory (ie., past experience) that leads us to believe
that this is an unfriendly world needs to be let go.
Certainly, all of us have memories or past experiences of
confusion or separation or injustice or unfriendliness. If
these experiences are hanging around us unresolved, we can
clear them from our attention simply by focusing elsewhere.
If we hold on to them in the present as facts, and generalize
the facts into truths, we allow them to color our future
experiences. Such memories can teach us about confusion and
separation if we choose to focus in that direction, but they
can teach us more about clarity.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
The image of a dark window releasing is powerful. You may
perceive that the dark window is in front of your eyes
distorting your vision, or in front of your heart polluting
your relationships, or between your life mission and your
life experiences blocking your satisfaction. As you look
at the world today, consider what parts you may be
perceiving through a dark glass. Then clean the dark glass
-- Windex or other commercial glass cleaner works well. Or
if you do not want to use a chemical, use intention.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I let go of everything that gets in the way of clarity and
purity. By letting go, I find that my vision clears so that
I can see what I want.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Some unclear stuff we have been holding onto for a
looonnnggg time. Some of it is rather yucky and dung-like.
So, let's release it with the intention that it does not
pollute -- not ourselves, not anyone else, and not the
environment. Just as excrement can become fertilizer, we
allow the stuff of the past to nourish our own beauty to
blossom. We can keep our attention on the fertilizer or on
the blooms. It is a personal choice.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Keep remembering that you want to RELEASE resistance, not
figure out how it got there. Trying to figure everything
out keeps you holding onto it. Please also remember to be
very gentle with yourself. This is not a contest, but a
process of personal development. Reward yourself with hugs
and loving kindness. Let yourself see clearly your heart's
desires and mind's visions.

Make this a truthful day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I rescind obsolete vows of struggle, unworthiness, silence,
and limitation.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Vows from past generations permeate our current experiences.
Vows, especially religious and marital, are often made with
worthy intention, but when belief in them is strong, they
continue to impact even if they are not relevant. Right now
(this instant!) our consciousness is great enough to rescind
outdated vows simply with our intention to do so. Vows made
at any time can limit us -- indeed, that is the purpose of a
vow: to limit. For example, "I'll never speak to you again!"
is a vow to limit speech, even though the focus may have been
to stop communication with a single person. As "forever,"
"never" is a very long time.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As recommended yesterday, here is a reminder to write this
affirmation according to the approach described in "Writing
Affirmations for Empowerment." In addition, you may want to
reflect on the personal relevance of the vows named in
today's statement or you may choose to add others. Do you
experience struggle in any part of your life? Do you feel
unworthy -- either generally or situationally? Are you
afraid to speak up or to speak your truth? Do you feel in
bondage or that you are not expressing your full potential?
If you said yes to any of these questions, this affirmation
may be particularly potent for you, but do not belabor this
exploration. I encourage you to complete your work with
outdated vows quickly so you can move on.

ABOUT RESCINDING LIMITING BELIEFS

process of rescinding limiting beliefs This extensive

Make this an angelic day!



ABOUT YOUR INTENTION
If you have not already done so, please identify your
over-arching intention for Clarity. That is, develop a
statement that guides you in the exploration and embodiment
of clarity. Intention is the energy or consciousness from
which actions emerge. If you are uncertain how to write
this intention, just make an attempt. Keep it simple. You
have 30 days to work with the intention and the theme, so
let your statement change and deepen. Here are a few
suggestions for statements of intention about the theme of
Clarity: *To realize clarity on all levels of my being.
*To hold the consciousness of clarity. *I am clear. *To
experience the clarity of a pure crystal.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I give myself permission to release toxicity, easily and
effortlessly from every level of the energy field. The
Angel of Clarity carries away heavy distortions.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Sometimes we need to give ourselves permission to do
something, even something that we really desire to do. We
may hold a belief that change takes a long time or that
change must be difficult or that change is not possible. If
we believe these ideas in our mind, we make them true in
physical reality. And, if we believe that change is easy
and fun and fast and deep, THESE thoughts become true in our
reality. So, we start with giving ourselves permission to
believe what we want to believe, regardless of past
experiences. We acknowledge that we are supported by angels
who monitor this process. The loving angels who are on
DailyAffirm duty this month are under the supervision of the
Angel of Clarity.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you work with today's affirmation, remember to breathe
deeply. You may find that you give yourself permission to
release in a general way, or you may find that you prefer to
be quite specific about what you are ready to release. The
approach that works for you is the right approach, but do
not get overly caught up in releasing the stuff -- remember,
the theme is "clarity."

I recommend that you write this week's affirmations,
especially today's and tomorrow's. I have developed a
process which is described in the book, "Affirmations: A
Pathway to Transformation" and in an article entitled,
"Writing Affirmations for Empowerment."

yyy

Make this a meaningful week!

Greetings on the 1st week of April with the theme of
Clarity. During this first week we focus on Releasing/
Cleansing Affirmations.

ABOUT YOUR INTENTION
If you have not already done so, please identify your
over-arching intention for Clarity. That is, develop a
statement that guides you in the exploration and embodiment
of clarity. Intention is the energy or consciousness from
which actions emerge. If you are uncertain how to write
this intention, just make an attempt. Keep it simple. You
have 30 days to work with the intention and the theme, so
let your statement change and deepen. Here are a few
suggestions for statements of intention about the theme of
Clarity: *To realize clarity on all levels of my being.
*To hold the consciousness of clarity. *I am clear. *To
experience the clarity of a pure crystal.

ABOUT RELEASING/CLEANSING AFFIRMATIONS and CLARITY
During this first week, we are letting go of non-clarity,
barriers to clarity, and resistance. So, we empty out
sludge, erase confusion, release toxicity, cleanse
distortions, etc. We may know precisely what we are
releasing (e.g., an old relationship, poverty consciousness,
fear of the unknown) or we may just know in a general way
what we are releasing (fears, doubts, unnecessary stuff).
It does not benefit you to be overly preoccupied with
releasing, just catch the concept of letting go of
resistance and give your attention to clarity and other
dynamics you wish to experience in your life.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you work with your chosen affirmation(s) this week, be
aware of your own unique process of letting go. If you have
any discomfort (some folks do, some do not), immediately
re-frame it as a healing or a clearing or a purification.
If you stop to try to dissect what you are releasing, you
slow down your process. It is helpful to release the need
to understand everything! This is a very good week to empty
out closets and desk drawers and files -- anything that gets
in the way of clear focus.

I recommend that you write this week's affirmation(s). I
have developed a process which is described in the book,
"Affirmations: A Pathway to Transformation" and in an article
entitled, "Writing Affirmations for Empowerment." As those
who have been participating know, this article is posted at
my Web site.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent releasing and cleansing for clarity it would be
the first sentence of the affirmation for April 1: "I give
myself permission to release toxicity easily and
effortlessly from every level of the energy field." I have
given this affirmation to many, many clients in individual
sessions and workshops for profound results.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

April 1:
I give myself permission to release toxicity, easily and
effortlessly from every level of the energy field. The
Angel of Clarity carries away heavy distortions.

April 2:
I rescind obsolete vows of struggle, unworthiness, silence,
and limitation.

April 3:
I let go of everything that gets in the way of clarity and
purity. By letting go, I find that my vision clears so that
I can see what I want.

April 4:
I release memories that allowed belief in confusion and
separation. I release the dark window through which I have
seen the world.

April 5:
I cut negative bonds of attachment to disorder, bewilderment,
and contamination.

April 6:
I dissolve thoughts that suggest there is no clarity. I say
good bye to confusion.

April 7:
I let Spirit (My Higher Self, God, My Spirit Guides, The
One, The Force, Infinite Source) clear any remaining
thoughts or feelings of disorder and impurity.

Make this a balancing day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today is an opportunity for balance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Today is all we have. The past and future are helpful
reference points, but we can only live TODAY. It is an
opportunity. It is an opportunity for balance. It is also
an opportunity for anything else we wish to learn or achieve
or experience. A wonderful variation on this affirmation is
"Today is an opportunity." Another variation is to replace
the word "balance" with another word or phrase, for example,
a synonym (e.g., evenness, harmony, effortlessness) or a
place for balance to show up (e.g., in my job, in my life,
in the world).

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I encourage you today (the last day of the month) to play
with this idea of balance. As you walk, you may notice how
your weight shifts and balances itself on the right and then
the left. As you talk, listen to the cadence of your voice.
Notice the evenness of thoughts as they flow through your
mind. Let EVERYthing be an opportunity for balance. Embody
balance.

ABOUT OUR NEXT THEME
Tomorrow is a new day and a new month. The new theme is
"clarity." So, be certain to identify an over-arching
intention about clarity. Your intention may change, but is
essential for guiding your actions. You might consider WHAT
you want to be clear about or HOW to enhance your clarity.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I integrate balance into every aspect of my life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

As we affirm today's statement, we may become aware of the
aspect(s) of our life in which we feel or sense we have not
integrated balance. We let this awareness be good news --
the good news of feedback. Feedback tells us where we need
to work, where to give our attention. Feedback is not a
sign of failure but a gift of information for an opportunity
for growth. If we experience balance in one aspect of our
life, we can expand it into other aspects. Balance is
balance is balance. We touch its vibration where we can so
that we can open to it in other parts and places.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
During these integrating/embodying days, you may notice some
aspects of balance or non-balance that require future or
ongoing attention. Soon you move to another theme for the
affirmations, but balance (or non-balance!) remains with
you. If you have a practice of journaling important events
and transitions, you may wish to journal about your passage.
Perhaps your passage is from unawareness of balance to
awareness of what in your life needs to be balanced.
Perhaps your passage is from conscious awareness of balance
to effortless integration of balance. Celebrate the
transition and name it, as appropriate for you.

ABOUT THE BOOK OF THE MONTH RECOMMENDATION
One of the quickest and best ways to know if something is
balanced or not is to notice the energy field. When you are
good at this, the knowledge of balance is instantaneous and
highly accurate. Here is a book that helps you to learn
about energy, energy healing, and energy fields. It is
called "Energy Medicine" by Donna Eden. You may read my

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Yes to Balance!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
One of the simplest affirmations in our language is "yes."
"No" is also an affirmation, but it is a little trickier
because the word says "no" while the attention to the not-
wanted thing says "yes." The more clear we are about what
we desire in our life, the more clear we are about what we
do not desire in our life. The reverse is also true. I
want to be counted today as one who votes yes! to balance.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Are you with me? Do you also want to say yes! to balance?
You have been working toward the integration and embodiment
of balance all month. Today and for two more days you are
supported by Integrating/Embodying Affirmations specifically
designed to give you an opportunity to take the theme deeper
into your consciousness. I know from my personal consulting
work and empowerment workshops how very important it is to
allow people to integrate what they have learned. There are
many techniques: journaling, meditation, silence, review,
reflection, doing something completely different. So,
select an integrating technique such as these or others you
prefer to work with today and the next few days.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I act with purposeful awareness of equanimity and balance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Equanimity is a strong word that means calmness and
evenness. I also think of it as being devoid of judgment --
to walk evenly and equally on all the steps of life's
experiences. To be as peaceful in the face of disaster as
in the face of ease is equanimity. To be as confident when
the circumstances are tough as when they are simple is
equanimity. To be as calm with those with whom we disagree
philosophically as with those with whom we agree is
equanimity. Life is filled with bumps and joys and turns
and miracles and hiccups and surprises. Purposeful
awareness guides us to appreciating it all.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I recall a conversation with several people who seemed to
enjoy judging others. The conversation turned to the film
"The Bird Cage" which gave them an opportunity to show their
judgments. Two people at the table agreed adamantly that
this is a bad film (oh, they had not seen it, by the way --
I was the only one who had). I listened to them talk about
how their way is the best way. The subject changed to
something else soon after I said gently, "If you go to this
film with love in your heart, you are likely to watch with
compassion. If you go with hatred and fear in your heart,
you are likely to...., well, actually if you go with hatred
and fear in your heart you might as well stay home." What
challenge do you face today that demonstrates to yourself
that you can be loving and balanced?

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
Tomorrow the Integrating/Embodying affirmations begin.
Today is a good day to check for a final action you might
want to take to demonstrate balance in one or more aspects
of your life. Of course, you might want to make a
commitment to yourself to claim and demonstrate balance each
day. A re-visit of your over-arching intention for balance
also allows you to integrate more fully all that you have
learned this month.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I let every act be an act of balance. I act from deep
integrity.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Sometimes we have our attention focused so much on juggling
all the little things (or thingies as I called them the
other day), that we forget to pay attention to balancing the
large picture. Sometimes we have our attention on the large
picture and forget that we can learn balance from the
mundane or everyday tasks. Every act, every situation,
every word has contained in it the opportunity to learn
about any topic we set an intention to learn. When
integrity powers our actions -- little acts and big acts --
we experience balance.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Look away from your computer right now to focus your eyes on
something else in the room. Yes, I know, you have to look
back here to read the next sentence. Whatever you rested
your eyes upon (printer? pen? clutter? carpet? lamp?
calendar?) is balanced with respect to other things.
Notice, and describe the balance. Throughout the day,
notice how your relationships with other persons and things
can teach you balance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I draw a circle of balance to establish my world.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The circle has no beginning and no end -- the same as
infinity. While the circle can define space, it need not
confine space. While we are learning about life and
choices, we must distinguish between those ideas and things
that we desire in our lives and those ideas and things we do
not desire in our lives. It is important that we not
confuse a personal boundary with personal limitations. A
personal boundary differentiates us; limitations prevent us.
As our consciousness lifts high enough, we reduce the need
for boundaries. Until then, we encircle ourselves with the
energy of balance.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you draw your circle of balance to establish your world,
you may want to name the qualities and dynamics that you
wish to experience in your space, in your world. Use your
circle to absorb anything that gets in the way of balance as
you have defined it. After you have drawn your circle you
may choose to color it or enliven it with a memory that
represents balance, or enrich your circle with a vision of
the balanced life you are manifesting.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I manifest all things in association with balance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
When we set an intention to live in balance, our
manifestations are balanced. By "manifestations" I mean the
signs and proof of our creations: our actions, our
experiences, our relationships, our fulfilled dreams, our
achieved goals. Sometimes we see immediate results of our
balanced intention moving into manifestation; sometimes we
see results at a much later time. Thoughts DO manifest, so
we choose thoughts that create what we truly desire! A
conversation I had with an artist is apropos of today's
affirmation. His medium is wood; his specialty, furniture.
When he has to choose between art and functionality, he
chooses art. While each piece is made of the same "stuff,"
each item is distinct and carries his consciousness to the
showroom or the client. He is clear that his artwork is
manifested with balance and alignment with a higher power
and purpose. While not all our manifestations may be as
easy to trace as an artist's, the process itself is the same.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
What do you most want to manifest in your life? Are you
manifesting that right now? If the answer is "no," I
suggest that you not ask "why?" or "why not?" but rather ask
"how?" Here is the simple formula: think the thoughts
that create the manifestations you desire. For example, if
you want a new and satisfying job, being grumpy about the
current job is NOT the way to manifest that new and
satisfying job. Instead, fill your thoughts with the joy of
working and doing what you love to do. Think empowering
thoughts about yourself, about your current job, and about
your new and satisfying job. Remember that the time between
a thought and its manifestation is lessened with higher
consciousness. Stay focused on what you desire to manifest,
stay balanced, and trust the process. Be the balance you seek.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I claim my balance. I claim my power.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
I know from clients and DailyAffirm subscribers and
telephone callers that this is a powerful time for many
people. I also know that many persons are struggling with
balance. Here's my suggestion: stop struggling!!!
Struggle keeps us in a state of imbalance. Struggle begets
resistance; resistance begets struggle. It is time to trust
the simplicity of the concept that we can CLAIM balance. We
do that now, today.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
An article that may be very useful to you if you are
resisting against or struggling about balance is "Freedom
from Bondage." It is a true story (though quite
abbreviated) about energy work I did with a client many
years ago. It is an example of one approach to the energy
work I do to help clients free themselves from the shackles
of limitation. Consider...... is there anything that
prevents you from being fully in your power? Whether the
barrier is inside you or outside you, dissolve or leap over
it into your power. Claim your balance and your power now,
unless you choose to let the barrier prevent you from living
a balanced and full life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I act with balance in my heart. I speak with balance on my
lips. I walk with balance in my feet.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Several primary channels and methods for acting and/or
claiming balance are represented in today's affirmation.
The heart represents our feelings; the lips represent our
expression; the feet represent physical movement. Here is a
personal flashback to many years ago when I had a job (now I
don't have a job, I have a business). One of my co-workers,
a physically strong man, was asked to put shelving together
in our new offices -- we were trainers and consultants, we
did everything! Boldly, he put together the shelving -- you
know the kind, institutional dark gray metal with four
little plastic thingies to position each shelf. He had
moved from the bottom to the top, carefully putting each
shelf in place measured by the one below, when I caught a
glimpse of his efforts: the left end of the shelf was higher
than the right by one peg length. He had worked hard, yet
his results were out of balance. We had a good laugh.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Perhaps you need to laugh about something in your life that
is out of balance. If you act with imbalance or instability,
what happens? If you speak when you are out of sorts, what
happens? If you walk when you are shaken or dizzy, what
happens? If you do not like the answers to these questions,
then balance yourself. Act with clarity. Speak with
evenness. Walk with effortlessness. You do not need to
wait for ANYthing. Do it now. In the meantime, laugh at
the out-of-balance aspects in your life and, if needed, move
a few thingies.

Make this an energetic day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Balance energizes my actions.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This concise statement starts the Acting/Claiming
affirmations. We step into our power. Each day we step
more powerfully into balance as we think about or say words
that invite still more balance into our lives, which further
energizes our actions. Balance is a powerful fuel that we
can use in all our activities and projects.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Today, let balance -- however YOU are defining it --
energize all that you do. If you have any hesitancy or
doubt, take time to align yourself with your power before
stepping forward. Without this alignment, you may have a
tendency to feel powerful, but in the wrong direction or in
an inappropriate way. This is not empowerment, but mere
movement or wasted energy. What is the most empowering
action you can take today?

Make this a wonderful week-plus!

Greetings on the 4th week of March with the theme of Balance.
During this fourth week we focus on Acting/Claiming
Affirmations, and the last days of the month we focus on
Integrating/Embodying Affirmations. Make this a wonderful
week-plus!

ABOUT ACTING/CLAIMING AFFIRMATIONS and BALANCE
Since everything is constantly in a state of change, it is
important to be cognizant of balance when we are moving as
well as when we are still. Whether we are moving from the
inside to the outside, from outside to inside, from higher
to lower, or from lower to higher, we desire to achieve
balance. We act FROM balance; we act IN balance; we act TO
balance; we act AS balance.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Think of balance as an energy that fuels your thoughts,
feelings, and actions. During this week, you may wish to
focus on one specific priority in your life to direct the
flow of balance. Keep your focus on both balance and the
priority, and you cannot fail to achieve balance. Put your
attention elsewhere and you fuel that other thing. Balance.
Priority. Balance. Priority. Balance. Priority.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent being and intending for balance it would be the
affirmation for March 27: "I let every act be an act of
balance. I act from deep integrity." This keeps the
attention on both actions and balance (the week's process
and this month's theme respectively) as well as integrity.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

March 22:
Balance energizes my actions.

March 23:
I act with balance in my heart. I speak with balance on my
lips. I walk with balance in my feet.

March 24:
I claim my balance. I claim my power for today and for all
the todays to come.

March 25:
I manifest all things in association with balance.

March 26:
I draw a circle of balance to establish my world.

March 27:
I let every act be an act of balance. I act from deep
integrity.

March 28:
I act with purposeful awareness of equanimity and balance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT INTEGRATING/EMBODYING AFFIRMATIONS and BALANCE
We let this week's affirmations support us in reflecting on
the month's exploration of balance. We know that every
situation can teach us about balance. We say Yes! to
balance today and every day. We do not need to wait for any
particular event or circumstance to change. We acknowledge
balance right now.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Select your special techniques for embodying and integrating
ideas, feelings, and experiences. For example: journaling,
reflecting on highlights, reviewing the previous DailyAffirm
messages and any exercises you may have done about the
affirmations. As you meditate on balance, reflect on the
whole month and weed out anything in your desk or computer
that makes you feel imbalanced, indecisive, or overloaded.

March 29:
Yes to Balance!

March 30:
I integrate balance into every aspect of my life.

March 31:
Today is an opportunity for balance.

Make this an attentive day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Balance enhances all my thoughts and feelings. I give my
attention to balance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
That to which we give our attention expands. So, let's give
our attention to balance! Many folks give lots of attention
to imbalance, so imbalance expands. Certainly we need to be
aware of aspects of imbalance and instability and
disharmony, but too much attention to these dynamics expands
them. We can notice in a matter-of-fact or detached way
while giving our primary attention -- our energy -- to
balance and to those ideas and feelings that help us to
experience balance.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Today is the last day of the Being/Intending Affirmations.
I suggest you do three things before moving into the next
genre of affirmations: (1) consider if there is anything
else you want to become or be or know or intend with respect
to balance, (2) re-visit the over-arching intention you set
for balance, and (3) ascertain if you are ready to be
powerfully balanced. Since these affirmations are designed
as a process, it is important that you feel ready to
proceed. If you need more time to ponder being and
intending with respect to balance, take the time.

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
Tomorrow begins the Acting/Claiming Affirmations, so
consider anything else that is relevant to you about your
relationship to balance. Be certain you feel clear about
this theme before you affirm actions and make claims. If
you are alert, you will discover that you make choices about
balance and imbalance many times throughout a day.

Make this a transcendent day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I understand the meaning of balance. I know that balance
transcends duality.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Duality is a helpful concept while we are learning our
lessons in Earth School. The spiritual transformation that
we are living through includes transcending duality. Many
folks believe that they must experience bad in order to
understand or appreciate good. I find this a limiting
belief. While it is true that we can and do learn about
good as a result of experiencing bad, I observe that many
people dwell too long in the negativity rather than catching
the desire or vision that the negativity can help to define.
Of course, there are many dualities other than good and bad
that are more neutral -- left and right, in and out, up and
down. So as we reflect on our definition of balance, we
include in it the idea of transcending duality.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
An excellent way to appreciate duality is to write with both
hands -- one at a time, as I suggest in the writing
affirmations process. As you move from writing with the
dominant to the non-dominant hand, your world changes. One
is not better than the other, but different from the other.
You can also appreciate duality by becoming aware of a
thought, and then intentionally becoming aware of the
opposite thought, and then blending the two or looking for
commonality in the extremes. Both of these are helpful
exercises in relating to duality in your human
consciousness.

Make this a memorable day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I remember how to balance. I remember to embody balance. I
remember who I am.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
So often when we speak of remembering or forgetting we are
referring to facts, dates, tasks, names, and the like. In
speaking of remembering balance, we go to another level of
awareness: to intention, purpose, mission, existence, and
the like. These three sentences strung together may not be
as literary as one sentence. However, they have more power
as an affirmation in these three steps. The three-sentence
format also invites us to add other sentences or rearrange
the ideas in each of the existing sentences.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you read through or work with today's affirmation, ponder
the meaning of each sentence. If you choose to repeatedly
read or write or say the affirmation, you will notice the
meaning(s) change with repetition. Of course, if you choose
to rewrite this into one sentence, feel free. As I
frequently remind you: make the process work for you!
Today, above all else, remember who you are -- I mean TRULY
remember who you are.

Make this a divine day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My mission is to experience balance in my world. I am
aligned with the divine.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This is a powerful idea to ponder. Of course, each one of
us has our own personal mission for being here on the planet.
Let us consider, though, what the world would be like if we
all dedicated ourselves to experiencing balance in our own
world, that is, in the space in which we focus our lives.
The divine IS balance, so attuning to the divine with loving
feelings and thoughts helps us to experience balance in our
life.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
I challenge you to work with today's affirmation in a way
that you do not usually work with the affirmations.
Consider varying your process, just to stretch yourself.
Perhaps the change is the time you spend with the
affirmation. If you usually take a quick peek and forget
the affirmation for the rest of the day, experiment with
taking longer. If you usually take a long time, just take a
quick peek. Perhaps the change is your approach to
expressing it. If you usually read it quietly, try chanting
or singing it. If you usually write it, try drawing a visual
image that represents the affirmation. If you usually read
it right side up, read it upside down.

Make this an intentional day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

High intention operates in the midst of balance. Balance
operates in the midst of high intention.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Today's affirmation is meaningful when using either or both
sentences. While the words are reversed, the meaning is
not. Balance and high intention operate together.
Understanding the power of intention is essential for
positive change. Everything (EVERYTHING) is in constant
change -- let us all agree to that one! However, we want to
feel that change happens for the good of all -- for the
best. In other words, we want change to be more than mere
movement.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
This affirmation seems to have the rhythm of a chant. You
may hear drums or harps, depending on your perspective. Or
perhaps you feel the rhythm or the movement; you may hear
associated sounds that tell you the extent to which this
affirmation resonates for you. Experience the balance of
the affirmation; experience the balance in your life that
you are intending as a result of working with this
affirmation.

Make this an empowering day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I deepen my awareness of the consciousness of balance, from
which my empowering actions spring.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
All actions come from consciousness. We may or may not be
aware of our process, which is one of the reasons that
simple questions like "What is your/my intention?" and
"Where is your/my attention?" are so valuable. When we ask
these questions, we want to ask them so that they empower,
not accuse or blame. Touching our intention usually deepens
it. Giving our attention to something means giving our
energy, which expands the focus of our attention. Simply
asking these two questions (REGARDLESS of the answer) lifts
our consciousness. Well-constructed questions can be useful
for our whole lifetime. Answers change from moment to
moment and situation to situation, temporarily useful
(sometimes). In addition to the above, here are a few more
of my favorite questions: "What is the most empowering
thing I can do or say right now?" "What is worthy of my
attention?" "What is my true desire?" "Who am I?"

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Identify a particular situation you face today -- glorious
or challenging, large or small, short-term or long-time.
Then select one or more of the questions above and write
your answers with respect to the identified situation.
After you have surfaced enough ideas to give you greater
clarity about the situation, write a high intention for
empowerment or balance with respect to the situation.

Make this a ONEderful day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I know that balance leads to the highest good for all.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
"The highest good for all" is my idea of an all-purpose,
generic high intention. I especially like to use it EITHER
when I have an opinion what is best OR when I do not have a
clue what is best. As soon as the concept of the "highest
good for all" has our attention, both our perspectives and
the creative outcomes expand, even if we do not have
concrete facts. We just KNOW that everything is happening
for the good of all. A stated intention is the foundation
of all my work. When I start a project or a consultation or
a conversation, I ask myself "what is my intention?" When I
am in the role of facilitator or consultant I ask the
individual(s) "What is your intention?" Just asking the
question opens us to higher/deeper thinking. When we
articulate the intention, still deeper is the connection
with the intention. When we write down the intention, we
experience enhanced awareness by watching results flow from
the intention.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
What is your intention? Identify a specific situation,
perhaps one that you feel VERY close to with lots of emotion
and history and desires for change. Take a deep breath.
Now, set an intention. Keep it simple, just as I suggest
when you are writing the over-arching intention for the
monthly theme. If your specific situation is with one other
person with whom you are in disagreement, perhaps your
intention is "to have open and honest communication" or "to
come to an understanding that is for the highest good for
all" or "to listen deeply and speak clearly." If you find
yourself attached to a particular position for an end
result, you are not working with high intention.

Balance

Greetings on the 3rd week of March with the theme of Balance.
During this third week we focus on Being/Intending
Affirmations. Make this a balanced week!

Remind yourself of your over-arching intention for balance.

ABOUT BEING/INTENDING AFFIRMATIONS and BALANCE
This week's affirmations support balance in our lives by
going into the consciousness of our intention. "To be or
not to be" is a much-quoted line from one of our greatest
writers. We must know who we are and know who we are
becoming. It is also helpful to know who we are not and who
we are not becoming when that leads us to clarifying who we
are. In any given moment we may feel that we are unbalanced
or dissonant or indecisive, yet we affirm our intention to
become balanced, to become balance.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
What is your intention for balance? What is your intention
for this week with respect to balance? What is the most
empowering thing you can do/say about the aspect of your
life that most challenges you? Who are you? Who are you
becoming? As you ponder these questions, consider also how
you feel about the idea of balancing your life from the
inside to the outside. As you let go of others' perceptions
and opinions, consider the power of the balance of One, a
balance which transcends duality.

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent being and intending for Balance it would be the
affirmation for March 20: "I understand the meaning of
balance. I know that balance transcends duality." Duality
on the earth plane is a method of evolving. This week, we
transcend duality so that we feel whole right here and right
now.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

March 15:
I know that balance leads to the highest good for all.

March 16:
I deepen my awareness of the consciousness of balance from
which my empowering actions spring.

March 17:
High intention operates in the midst of balance. Balance
operates in the midst of high intention.

March 18:
My mission is to experience balance in my world. I am
aligned with the divine.

March 19:
I remember how to balance. I remember to embody balance. I
remember who I am.

March 20:
I understand the meaning of balance. I know that balance
transcends duality.

March 21:
Balance enhances all my thoughts and feelings. I give my
attention to balance.

Make this a ready day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I am ready right now to live in balance and harmony.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Are you ready? Are you sure? Readiness is such a nifty
idea because we get to make a choice before we commit the
act. Readiness is not about the future, it is about the
present. So, if we are ready right now, that is all that
matters. We fill ourselves with the energy of readiness.
We breathe it. We expand our energy field with its
vibration. If anything opposes the readiness, we let the
opposition come forward so we can speak to it. We are even
ready for non-readiness! We are in charge. We claim the
readiness, right now.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
In the first week of the month, you worked with affirmations
that emptied you of non-balance. This week, you have been
opening to ideas and experiences of balance. Tomorrow the
DailyAffirm process assists you to move into a deeper
relationship with balance so that in the fourth week you can
step into balance in a way that you may not even understand
now. In the days following the fourth week, you will reflect
on integration of balance. Of course, you do not need to WAIT
until the end of the month to live in balance and harmony,
so if you feel it is unnecessary to affirm your readiness,
simply re-write the affirmation so that it reads. "I live
in balance and harmony right now."

ABOUT THE NEXT TYPE OF AFFIRMATIONS
Tomorrow the Being/Intending affirmations begin, inviting
you to envision what you desire to create with respect to
balance -- much like the over-arching intention at the
beginning of the month. Today is a good day to reflect on
all that you are receiving and have received so that you can
explore more deeply who you are.

hvit blomst

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I accept balance, harmony, and grace in all aspects of my
life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This affirmation presents the concept of the Receiving/
Accepting affirmations clearly, simply, concisely. We
could make it shorter by saying "I accept balance." However,
to articulate (and feel) the specific elements we wish to
accept is clarifying both to the recipient and to the
Universe. How we feel is important, for if we feel we are
compromising or giving up something, we are not truly
"accepting." Acceptance is clear and clean, without
conditions or regrets or doubts.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
The article "Fire Free Bird" speaks about this kind of
acceptance, although I use the word "surrender" in the
article. This short article might be inspiring if you are
struggling or are challenged with the idea of balance.
Likely, you have developed a style of outward action for
making things happen -- a powerful skill in many settings.
When you are progressing on your spiritual journey, though,
it is important to blend this quality of outer action with
the quality of receptivity or acceptance. That is balance.
You may find that you have to go through an interim step to
stop the outward action or aggressiveness so that you can
experience acceptance as a distinct dynamic.

Make this a friendly day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Balance, you are my friend. You help me to live in integrity.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Personifying balance can help us to accept this dynamic into
our lives. If we are constantly trying to MAKE things
balance, we are not in a friendship, but a contest.
Integrity is balance -- balance of the inner and outer,
balance of above and below, balance of left and right. We
often equate integrity with honesty, which is certainly an
important element of integrity. Thinking of balance as
integrity opens another facet of this theme that we are
exploring this month.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you work with today's affirmation, consider the many
friends in your life. People and things and ideas might
come to your mind. If you have a friendship with your car
and your computer, your experiences are different from those
created if you see your car or your computer as your enemy
or as a set of metal and plastic parts. Take a few moments
today to acknowledge several friends. Thank them for being
in your life -- either directly to them or with private
thoughts of gratitude. Remember family and neighbors and
long-ago acquaintances and former co-workers and grade
school teachers. If faces of enemies pop into your mind,
see them as friends. The best way to destroy your enemies
is to make them your friends.

Make this an understanding day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Dear God, allow me to see balance in a way that I can
understand.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
This is one of my favorite affirmations. I like its
simplicity. We all look through our own eyes to see our
world. We all have different lenses and preferences and
backgrounds and ways of seeing. Some individuals may be
stimulated into understanding balance by seeing children in
a playground on a seesaw or by watching a river flow gently
on a warm spring day or by feeling a glow. Others may
understand balance by getting sick and recovering or by
losing a job and finding one that is more suitable than the
first. Still others may learn about balance by going on a
spiritual retreat or workshop.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
When I use the word "balance" or the phrase "energetic
balance" in the context of my consulting work, I think of
all parts being in harmony with each other -- as a symphony.
I look at many different layers and levels of the energy
field, balancing the energy within each. I balance the
energy moving from the top down and the bottom up. I also
notice how parts of one layer or level balance or
communicate with others (e.g. how the liver is processing
anger; how a person's solar plexus is managing a job
conflict). So, I see balance as related to (and sometimes
synonymous with) clarity, communication, harmony, peace,
health, love, and light. As part of your understanding
balance more deeply for yourself, consider the words and
concepts and experiences that you associate with balance.

Make this a balanced day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I allow balance to flow through me and to act as me.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Today's affirmation challenges us to BECOME balance, to BE
balance. As balance flows through us, we become familiar
with its vibration. In order for something to "act as" us,
we must become it. We must BE what we desire. Balance is
not something outside ourselves, but inside. Other people's
perceptions of our sense of balance may be interesting
information (worthy of an appropriate amount of our
attention as a piece of data), yet our own perceptions about
balance are essential for our health and satisfaction.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
To enhance your process as you say or work with today's
affirmation, consider these questions. As you FEEL balance
flow through you, what does it feel like? As you SEE
balance flow through you, what does it look like? As you
SENSE balance flow through you, what do you sense? As you
LISTEN to the sounds of balance, what do you hear? As you
VIBRATE to balance, what do you become? These questions
expand your consciousness about balance so that you can more
easily become at one with it.

Make this a smooth day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I receive messages of balance from the Universe. I flow
like a smooth river in this balance.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The balance of the Universe is infallible. In the
narrowness of our human focus, we often cannot see the
perfection of it all. When it is hardest to see, THAT is
the time when we most need to trust, to put ourselves in the
hands of the divine. It is easy to trust when we can see
the evidence of balance in the outer world. Now, however,
we are called upon to trust at a deeper level, to trust in
the invisible rather than the visible. We let the universal
river carry us.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Consider several areas of life that you try hard to balance,
try to MAKE balance -- perhaps work and play, your
checkbook, fairness or honesty in a particular relationship,
food, or reactions. Notice how you use your weekend to try
to achieve a balance for the week's activities. Remind
yourself of the over-arching intention you set for balance.
Look deeply at your own image or interpretation of "flow
like a smooth river" or maybe it is a bubbling brook or
raging ocean or deep pool or shallow puddle. What do you
need to accept into your life to experience balance as you
desire it?

ABOUT THE BOOK OF THE MONTH RECOMMENDATION
Since so much of my work is related to working with energy
and energy fields, I have frequently been asked over a
period of many years to recommend books about energy.
Usually I suggested one or two books that I think a
particular individual will like that might address some
relevant topics, but now I finally have found a book I feel
good about recommending to anyone who is interested in
energy, energy healing, and energy fields. It is called
"Energy Medicine" by Donna Eden. You may read my book

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I open to allow balance and magical synchronicity to operate
in my life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Our world is so filled with images and messages about MAKING
things happen that it can sometimes be a shock to even
consider LETTING them happen. When we are in the midst of
synchronicity we know that our higher intelligence is in
charge, transcending the human manipulation that we might
construct. It is such a joy when we get out of our own way
and let the natural balance of life answer our desires in
its way. The flow and processes of the Universe are truly
magical if we only let go of the reins of control and allow.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Recently, I did a consultation with someone I know to be an
incredibly powerful person, with a wide span of influence.
He is in a shift of merging the BEING and the DOING, the
MAKING and the LETTING. Intellectually, he made the shift
many years ago -- that was easy for him. NOW he is making
the shift emotionally and physically -- these are more
challenging for him. Spiritually, no shift was really
required for him. One of the questions he asked me was
"Does everyone go through this or is my process unique?"
To which I answered, "yes." We are all One and we are
unique emanations. There are processes that we all share,
in our own unique ways.

Make this an ACCEPTional week!



ABOUT RECEIVING/ACCEPTING AFFIRMATIONS and BALANCE
The ability to be receptive (a feminine quality) in a
masculine and male-oriented society is, in itself, a
demonstration of balance. Truly, we must balance the
masculine and feminine energies as well as other energies so
that one part neither dominates nor distorts the whole (nor
believes that one part is the whole). We open. We open to
allow. We open to allow so that we can accept and receive.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Consider this week what you are most in need of accepting
into your life so that you experience balance. Perhaps such
qualities as love or peace or calmness or clarity. Perhaps
new ideas. Or a new way of thinking. Notice whether you
believe that you must accept something from outside yourself
or from inside yourself. Notice also any uneasiness about
receptivity or acceptance. How do you define and achieve
balance in your portion of the world?

ABOUT THE AFFIRMATIONS
If I were to select the definitive affirmation for the week
to represent receiving and accepting for Balance, I would
choose the March 11 affirmation: "Dear God, allow me to see
balance in a way that I can understand." This simple prayer
supports you in making balance real and present in your
life, not as a theory or a dream or a fantasy.

Following are all seven affirmations. Select one to focus
on for the week or use a different affirmation each day or
some combination. You will receive each of these
affirmations on the appropriate days with additional
information and suggestions. Make your process work for
you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

March 8:
I open to allow balance and magical synchronicity to operate
in my life.

March 9:
I receive messages of balance from the Universe. I flow
like a smooth river in this balance.

March 10:
I allow balance to flow through me and to act as me.

March 11:
Dear God, allow me to see balance in a way that I can
understand.

March 12:
Balance, you are my friend. You help me to live in
integrity.

March 13:
I accept balance, harmony, and grace in all aspects of my
life.

March 14:
I am ready right now to live in balance and harmony.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I let go of thoughts that suggest there is no balance. I
stop creating images that life is unfair and start creating
images of joy.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Today's affirmation invites us to dissolve and erase ideas
and beliefs that block our acceptance of balance. We may
find ourselves working successfully with this affirmation
without even knowing precisely what those ideas and beliefs
are OR we may find information jumps out at us everywhere we
turn today. When our journey is the latter, it is time for
us to turn our attention from these images that we do not
want to images that we do want. We want to give this
releasing process the proper attention -- just enough to
recognize what we do not want -- so that we can give our
attention intentionally to what we do want. As thoughts of
imbalance and unfairness and injustice and indecision come
into our conscious awareness, we let them flow from us, and
give our focus to balance and fairness and justice and decision.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Are you noticing that you and others are releasing old stuff
as you work with these Releasing/Cleansing affirmations?
The power of this process (as well as any other self-
development processes) is more greatly enhanced when you
sharpen your awareness of your own process and the processes
of others. What do you notice today about balance or
imbalance? about fairness or unfairness? about life in any
aspect? To what do you most want to give your attention?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I cut negative bonds of attachment to imbalance and
inequality. I untie the duality of bondage and control.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Cutting negative bonds of attachment is a powerful technique
for releasing and detaching ourselves from someone or
something. We can perceive or imagine the quality or
characteristics of the bonds between ourselves and whatever
keeps us from experiencing balance. My definition of a
technique is a method to teach us to do something so well
that we do not need the technique -- similar to training
wheels on a child's bicycle. As we experiment with powerful
techniques (such as many that I mention, and those from
other sources), we must remember that they are ONLY tools
-- WE are the power. Each one of us has incredible power.
If some technique teaches us about our own power, it has
done its job. If the author of a technique tells us that
the technique is required in order for us to be powerful, it
has not served us, but the author.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
You can use your imagination to check the bonds that keep
you attached to someone or something. This may be a belief
that someone or something has power over you. Without
focusing on the person or thing to which you are negatively
attached, examine the bonds. Are the bonds tight? What
color are they? How thick are they? Of what substance are
they? What instrument is required to cut the bonds? When
you are ready, cut them. As you cut the bonds, also cut or
untie the belief that the bondage of one + the control of
another = balance. This equation is part of an old paradigm
whose time is of the past. The releasing process of this
week assists you in moving into a new paradigm and a new
definition of balance.

Make this a purifying day!



~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I release memories that allowed belief in instability and
revenge. Impurities dissolve without pollution as I
manifest new experiences that become tomorrow's pleasant
memories.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Memories of experiences can be recorded on any layer/level
of the energy field. We may be conscious of the memories or
not. They may sit there quietly for many years, either
polluting or enhancing our relationships. As we release old
resistance, we may feel the feelings or think the thoughts
that relate to those memories. The thoughts and feelings
may come as a flash or a thud or laughter or fear.
Analyzing this stuff is like analyzing the trash in our
trash masher -- messy and not very productive. The
shortened version of this affirmation is, "I release."

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Remember "to release" means "to let go." As you let go of
what you do not need, you become happier and clearer and
friendlier. In this way, you benefit first and others
around you benefit also. While you are not responsible for
anyone else's personal development, you are connected ("we
is all one") and can not separate yourself from the whole.
The stuff that is releasing from you and others during this
purification process has the potential of being toxic waste
or rich fertilizer. Intention can dissolve the impurities
in an instant -- if you prefer that the release take a long
time, that is your choice.

Affirmation

Make this a presentable day!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I act with purposeful awareness of love.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The purpose of awareness is to know and to experience life
fully. In today's statement, we affirm that we know love
through our actions and, further, that we act with love.
Awareness is a gift we can have before an action (future),
during it (present), and after it (past). We start where
we are -- where it is most familiar -- and expand our
awareness in the present AS we act. The past and the future
are available to us as a context for the present. However,
love is an energy that exists only in the present. It is
the Presence.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
As you read this message, consider some specific actions you
will take today or tomorrow and the extent to which you
desire to be aware of the love in the actions. After the
actions, reflect on your level of awareness during the
action. This allows you to set an intention and review the
manifestations of your intention. As you continue with this
approach, you become more and more aware of love and other
dynamics DURING your actions, no longer needing to wait
until later to review the impact. You know in the now.

ABOUT FEBRUARY 29
This year, there is no February 29. However, I have written
an affirmation and message for Integrating/Embodying Love.
Enjoy!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Today is an opportunity for love. Every day is an
opportunity for love.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT THIS INTEGRATING/EMBODYING AFFIRMATION
First of all, this is an unusual day -- it is on the
calendar once in four years. I had an uncle who attributed
his long life to being born on this day -- I remember his
excitement at his 21st birthday party with his great grand
children! Today, we open ourselves SO WIDE that love can
express itself through us. Love desires to be expressed,
and who better than through each one of us? We look around
each corner to find the opportunity for love. We sip love
with our morning coffee or tea or warm lemon water. We read
love into our reports and daily tasks.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
These are the last love affirmations -- but not the last day
for love. You may want to flash back to the over-arching
intention you set at the beginning of the month or when you
began this process. Ask yourself if you are clearer about
what love means to you. Feel love flow through your veins.
Let it integrate into each breath you breathe. Experience
love shower you with its healing vibration.

ABOUT OUR NEXT THEME
Tomorrow is a new month, with a new theme. The theme is
balance. Before you receive the first affirmation, I
suggest that you take a few moments to determine an over-
arching intention about balance. Consider also what balance
means to you.

Affirmation

Make this a day of loving feelings and actions!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I let every act be an act of unconditional love.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Every act requires energy. Every act is energy. Every act
has an energy field. Sometimes we might think that we can
cover up our feelings by making an act "look" good. But if
an act comes from the consciousness of unconditional love,
it will look however it looks and still carry the energy of
unconditional love. Bungling through a conversation while
radiating unconditional love usually yields understanding.
Expressing eloquence while being unloving usually yields
misunderstanding or other distortion. Words and actions
represent (re-present) the energy of the deeper
consciousness.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
The Internet is an ideal place to practice this idea of
acting from a consciousness of unconditional love. Before
opening a message from someone, ask yourself if it feels as
though the message is resonating with unconditional love.
As you read the message, ask yourself this question again.
Observe, with a nonjudgmental eye. Discernment without
judgment or disdain is a gift to assist you in lifting
consciousness. Here is another way to practice, focusing on
yourself: Breathe in unconditional love prior to writing a
message. Just sit quietly at your computer with still
fingers, breathing love in and out. Then write. Dip in
again to the pool of unconditional love before pushing the
"send" button. Love yourself for doing this.

Affirmation

Make this a complete day!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I draw a circle of love and encase myself in it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
The circle is both powerful and simple. Living in a circle
of love is our greatest protection from anything that is not
love-based. I often giggle at humanity's ingenuity at
constructing barriers against things we do not want. All
we really need is love. Love, love, love. Love is all we
need. (Thanks to the Beatles for the lyrics.)

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
Those of you who have worked with me in workshops or
personal sessions perhaps know about the Circle of
Abundance, which is energized by the Infinite Source. As
the circle is established inside you, it replicates itself
and encases you in a sphere. This sphere is magnetized to
attract abundance into your life, moving you into a natural
cycle of giving and receiving. This same image is a
valuable one for the circle of love described in today's
affirmation. Let the circle multiply and attract more love,
which you can give freely since it is constantly replaced
from the infinite source.

Acting/Claiming Affirmation

Make this a self-loving day!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I manifest from and with unconditional love of myself and
others.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
As I have mentioned in past daily messages, "unconditional
love" is the term that, for me, best describes what I mean
by this month's theme of "love." The term, of course, means
to love without limitations, without expectations, without
conditions. While the words of this definition for
"unconditional love" are negative, or more precisely double
negatives, they leave us with an overall understanding of a
positive dynamic. When we manifest (or create or act) from
a consciousness of unconditional love, we are powerful
beyond words. In that consciousness, we do not need to
resort to negating negatives to explain; we ARE love with
every aspect of our being speaking wordless love. We love
ourselves and we love others; we lift up ourselves and
others in this loving energy.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
What is your unique process for manifesting from and with
unconditional love? Do you sense that unconditional love is
a partner? a driver? a follower? a powerful force? a
gentle companion? When you are acting or claiming love,
what are you specifically aware of from inside yourself?
With your intention, transcend the barriers and claim love.
Use any technique that is useful to help you to act in love.

Affirmation of Love

I claim love. I claim my power throughout life.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

ABOUT TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
To claim love and power means to embrace it, not capture it
or grab it. Love and power need space to grow and prosper.
As we live in the expectancy of love, we feel its power so
that our world is enriched. Many of us are making
powerful claims these days: to live in the consciousness of
love, to embody our own power, to embrace our life mission,
to live life to its fullest. We claim love.

ABOUT YOUR PROCESS
This acting/claiming phase of the process we work with is
beautifully presented below quoting from Marianne
Williamson's "A Return to Love," pages 190-91 of the 1992
edition. (This is often attributed to Nelson Mandela who
quoted this piece in his 1994 Inaugural Speech.)

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.
It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
We ask ourselves,
"Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?"
Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God.
Your playing small doesn't serve the world.
There's nothing enlightening about shrinking so that
Other people won't feel insecure around you.
We were born to manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.
And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously
Give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.
