I align my thoughts with God, and I am renewed.

When my body is in alignment, every part of it works together in greater harmony. I feel energized and confident as well as strong and whole. The same is true for my spirit. When I am in spiritual alignment with God, I feel energized and confident as well as strong and whole.
There is an inseparable connection between my mind and body for positive thoughts bring about positive results. As I align my thoughts with God, my body responds in kind. I am more focused and relaxed. This cosmic alignment affects me in wonderful ways, giving me a sense of inner strength and peace.
Prayer is the method in which I align myself with God. I am renewed.

My faith in the Higher Power reassures and renews me—mind, body, and spirit.

I take time each day to renew my spirit, knowing that the benefits will be blessings beyond measure. I begin in the silence of prayer. In the silence, I let go of outer distractions and focus on the spirit of God within. God fills the silence with love and peace and contentment.
As the spirit of God surrounds me, I remember that I am God’s beloved child. I welcome God’s guidance and inspiration into my life. Breathing in, breathing out, I concentrate on the beauty of God’s spirit in me. I am renewed in mind and spirit, and I thank God for the wisdom and understanding I need to make good and right decisions.

"World Peace"

Divine love encircles the world, flowing from heart to heart as peace.
At the deepest level of creation, all beings are seeking peace. Underneath the outer shell of every human being beats a heart created in pure love. I pray from this consciousness, visualizing each person connecting with their divine selves and acting from that sacred place.
I envision the world enveloped in peace and wrapped in a warm, flowing channel of divine love. In gratitude, I affirm: Divine love is flowing, connecting, and healing the world and everyone in it.
I, too, act upon my inner divinity, recognizing that every word I speak and action I take can be done in peaceful, loving, and faith-filled ways. Divine love flows from my heart to bless the world.

I give thanks for everyday grace.

Grace is my unmerited gift from the Divine Source. Freely available to all, grace is accessible to me at any moment; I need only to be conscious enough to recognize it. When I live in a state of grace, I am living in an awareness of the divine flow.
As I spiritually awaken through prayer and meditation, I realize how grace is active in my everyday life. It shows up as amazing opportunities that unexpectedly present themselves, resources that materialize out of seemingly nothing, and unambiguous signposts perfectly timed to show me the next right step to proceed in alignment with a higher purpose for my life. I experience profound gratitude, joy, and wonder as I see the results of Spirit’s guiding grace in my daily affairs.

Divine light is my ultimate source of illumination.

If power goes out during a storm, I may find myself using a flashlight or candle to light my way—weaker substitutes for the stronger power. The same holds true if I am feeling lost or doubtful. Perhaps I find myself struggling because I am not looking at the situation through the illuminating peace and power of God’s presence.
Reconnecting with the Light is easy—all I need to do is ask. Turning within during a time of prayer shifts my vision from dim to all-seeing. What changed in that moment? Certainly the divine flow of love and light was there the entire time. The difference that prayer made was realigning my focus into the all-beingness of the Divine. The more I go to the ultimate source of light, the more it shines through me.

With steadfast faith, I step forward in action.

In faith, I affirm that all things are working together for good. When the noise of the world seems tuned to chaos, I do not fear. Rather, I raise my thoughts to the awareness of God present with all and through all. I affirm that the healing, loving presence of God is working to bring greater peace and harmony to the world.
I choose to be an active agent of peace. I begin with affirmative prayer. Where the world sees hatred, I see love; in place of division, I see unity; instead of lack, I see abundance. I have faith that God will guide me to the ways that I can make a difference in the world. I step forward in action, that my hands and feet may bring God’s peace to the world.

I seek and find serenity in the presence of God within.

Before inclement weather arrives, birds instinctually seek shelter by rising to calmer air currents, leaving the area, or perching in a safe place. Similarly, if I feel pressure around me beginning to build, I seek out shelter. I do so by turning to the serenity of God-life within.
In meditation and prayer, my awareness of my oneness with Ultimate Being is heightened and I am brought back to a place of peace. As the psalmist mused, “Be still, and know that I am God.”
I give thanks for the serenity that fills my soul and overflows into my life. Living from this place of serenity in my soul, I am renewed, ready to face whatever lies ahead. I sought and found serenity in the presence of God within.

Viewing life through a spiritual lens, I discover a whole new world.
When I look at life through a lens of peace, joy, and love, I welcome a whole new world of self-discovery. To get to a point of continuous awareness, I devote time each day to connecting with God.
In prayer, I tap into Infinite Source like an artist might dip a brush into a fresh palette of paint. I color the canvas of life with ideas, words, and deeds that reflect Spirit’s loving and abundant nature.
As I consistently practice this art of cocreating with Spirit, it becomes easier for me to hold thoughts of oneness, to speak words of peace, and to demonstrate generosity and compassion to all. I am a willing instrument for Spirit’s expression, cocreating a loving world.

"Heaven on Earth"

Immersed in God’s love, I experience heaven on earth.
Cradling a sleeping child; sharing an evening with close friends; praying at the edge of the ocean. I enter into heavenly consciousness each moment I am at peace and one with God. During these moments I experience true oneness. There is no sense of separation between myself and others, between myself and the world.
I breathe and relax into the wonder of God’s love and peace. Right where I am now, I am fully immersed in Spirit.
Gratefully I acknowledge this heavenly expression is a part of my earthly experience. Allowing my mind to merge into the One Mind of pure love, dissolving my being into the depths of infinite possibilities—this is heaven on earth.

I am one with God; my joy is complete.

The spray of a water fountain is managed by the amount of water pressure fed into the base of the fountain. A small amount of pressure produces a small fountain; more water pressure produces a larger one. At the core of my being is the Spirit of God, an effervescent life force that is perpetually bubbling and ready to expand into immense joy.
My joy spreads further when I feed my soul with prayer and open my heart to a greater awareness of God’s presence. The fountain of joy within me grows until it bursts forth in laughter, peace of mind, and goodwill.
No person, place, or thing can quench the joy that lives within me. I am blessed with absolute joy.

Forgiveness is my blessing.

To be able to forgive takes great strength of mind and heart. When I am able to do so, I find that I am the one who reaps the benefit because forgiveness is something I do for myself. To have a heart full of resentment occupies my mind and keeps me in a state of misery. By not forgiving, I am giving the other person control over my life, allowing him or her to steal my peace of mind.
I’ve experienced this process of forgiveness leading to wholeness. When I forgive myself or someone else, the burdensome feelings that weighed me down suddenly lift. My heart softens, the heavy energy moves out, and I feel free.
In a new lightness of being, I sit in prayer and ask what needs to be forgiven. I bless and release any feelings of animosity into the light.

"Pray for Others"

I am blessed as I pray for others.
Jesus often spoke of prayer. He said, “Whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours” (Mark 11:24). I combine my faith with my imagination and envision the result of answered prayer. I feel the feelings that answered prayer would bring, and I let it go.
As I pray for others, I see in my mind’s eye the result of those answered prayers. I pray for this or something even better. I pray, believing, and then give it over to God. It always feels like a personal blessing when I pray for another person. I am connecting with them through God. Worry or concern about a result diminishes the energy of my prayer, so I maintain my faith in God’s overall good in every situation, and know I have done my part.

I sow positive thoughts and harvest abundant blessings.
Gratitude is a powerful means to a more prosperous life for it helps me have a greater awareness of the blessings of God. When I have a grateful heart, I begin to notice the little things that bring me joy. I see the good in everyday experiences and realize how truly prosperous I am. I change my mindset from focusing on what I may want to gratitude for what I have.
I have so many things to be grateful for—family, friends, my creative ideas, and the world as a whole for its beauty, warmth, and provision for all life. I close my eyes and mentally turn away from thoughts of lack and open my spiritual “eyes” to the abundance that surrounds me.

"Let Go, Let God"

I let go and welcome God’s blessings.

When was the last time I received a wonderful surprise or an outcome far exceeded my expectations? How did this happen without my planning? It did so through the activity of God.
Sometimes I may need a reminder to set aside my personal will and struggle in order to let blessings in. When I release my need to be in charge, I expand my willingness to receive. As I let go and quiet my thoughts, my mind takes on a gentle receptivity. What a refreshing gift—just being in the Presence.
In this state of peace, I open to guidance, to answered prayers, to blessings beyond imagination. I let go and welcome God’s blessings.

The answer I seek already exists.

When I have a decision to make, the highest thought I can hold is to know that the solution already exists. Jesus continually demonstrated his faith that the answers to any questions were being provided by God.
Rather than question how the answer will be revealed, I have faith that the right and perfect solution will appear. The wisdom to discern it is within me. Spending quiet moments in prayer keeps my attitude positive. Prayer helps me take my attention off the seeming difficulty and to focus on God. I am in tune with my inner light. I relax and let go of any doubt. I open to the right answer at the right time.
In my relaxed, open state of mind, I welcome the solution. I am ready to receive.

Attuned to Divine Mind, I grow in spiritual understanding.

In his book Mind: The Master Power, Unity minister Charles Roth invites me to reflect on my true nature: “Let your mind be not a mirror, but a lens through which shines the light of Truth.”
If I forget the truth about myself, I may see only a mirror image, my outer, physical features, and overlook that I am created in the image of God. I am a spiritual being, an expression of the Divine. I continually grow in understanding of my spiritual nature.
My spiritual understanding is constantly evolving. I am ready to let go of ideas and habits that no longer serve me. I am ready for transformation of mind, body, and spirit.

"Helping Hand"

I am an expression of unconditional love.

Sometimes I’m not sure what I should say or do to help a friend or loved one. I remember that whatever I do or say, if it comes from a place of love, it will be a blessing.
Divine love prompts me. Divine wisdom guides me to right words and actions. I lend a hand by giving of myself in a variety of ways: preparing a meal for a neighbor who is going through a challenge; donating to a clothing drive; holding the hand of someone who is lonely; sharing with a charitable organization; speaking words of comfort when someone is sad.
We are all children of God, brothers and sisters—one family. By lending a helping hand, I feel connected to my universal family. I am an expression of unconditional love.

God’s love soothes my soul. I am comforted.
Concern may leave me feeling off-center and in need of comfort and reassurance. Time in prayer—whether I’m doing so for myself or for others—reminds me that I am never alone. God is my constant help in every need.
I take a moment to turn within to the calming, soothing presence of Spirit Divine. I acknowledge that God is everywhere present—with me and with all humankind. Any anxious thoughts are soothed by the calming presence of God within.
There are also times when I feel a need for human comfort. A warm touch of the hand, a kind hug, or a smile from a friend lets me know that others care. I relax into the truth that I am loved and supported. Spirit expresses in many ways to bring me comfort. I am at peace.

My life reflects my expectations, and I expect good.
When I wake up in the morning, do I expect to have a glorious day, filled with discovery and wonder? My life is a reflection of my expectations, and for this day, I expect good. What I expect, I accept, and I accept God’s blessings in my life.
I put aside doubt and think instead about all the dreams I have had in my life. I remember the joy I felt when a relationship, a job, any situation turned out better than I ever thought possible.
Now I use that joy as a building block for more joy. I expect that my interactions with others will be calm and peaceful. Thought by thought, my expectations build a strong foundation of faith that brings more joy into my life. I expect good and I see good in my life.

"Inner Peace"

Stillness nurtures peace in my soul.
The hectic pace of life may seem to push me to keep busy, yet a full calendar could leave me feeling exhausted and at odds with others. So I practice caring for myself by making time to be still.
Prayer and meditation are priorities in my day. A moment of gratitude before I get out of bed becomes a seed of peace planted early. I take the opportunity to pray wherever I am with whatever time I have available. As I wait in line or move between appointments, I focus on my breath. I slow my breathing. Each cleansing breath calms my racing thoughts. I may whisper a phrase like “peace, be still” to my being. Stillness nurtures peace in my soul. Restored and renewed, I return to my day at peace.

My awareness of the diversity and Oneness of all life deepens.
When opportunities to work in collaboration with others present themselves, my life stands to be greatly enriched when I become part of a team. Through teamwork, I hone my skills and share my spiritual gifts in service to others. Through collaboration, I find appreciation for the diverse expressions of Spirit and how a variety of aptitudes and skill sets help meet the diverse needs of life.
Even so, teamwork may not always be easy. So I stay grounded in faith and awareness, growing in spiritual consciousness. I remember that each and every person is unique. When I make space for Spirit in all that I do, my work with others blesses me exponentially in return.

I am a conduit of divine love and compassion.
As I give, so I receive. By choosing to help a fellow traveler on the road of life, I make a difference for them as well as for myself. I become a conduit of God’s love.
I may recall a time when another person saw my pain or dilemma and reached out; a parent, a friend, teacher, coach, or even a stranger stepped forward to help me. As I think back on those times, I realize that in some way they changed my life for the better. I, too, can be that conduit of divine love and compassion.
Today I open my awareness to another whose life would be made better through my kindness, my compassion. The power of a simple act of caring never ceases to amaze me. I make a positive difference as I demonstrate the love of God.

A joyful attitude makes each day beautiful.
A bright, sunny day can quickly get too hot. Rain, while refreshing, can spoil a picnic. My attitude changes any day from disaster to delight, not by changing the weather, but by changing my thoughts about it.
No matter what a source of frustration or disappointment may be, I make an attitude shift by taking a deep, soothing breath. I then exhale, expelling the energy. I feel my heart expand as negativity is released and gentler, calming thoughts fill the space left behind.
Lifting my attitude to a spiritual perspective opens the way for new ideas to fill my mind. I am grateful for each moment of life. I am the creator of my experience. I claim the power to be joyful in this day.

I prepare for my day, mentally, physically, and spiritually.
I prepare myself mentally and physically for the day when I fix my first meal and look ahead to my schedule. I also prepare myself spiritually by centering myself in Truth with affirmations to align my thoughts and actions.
I speak powerful words to myself that anchor me in the divine potential of spiritual essence—my I AM. “I AM Love” removes anger, judgment, or revenge. “I AM Wisdom” eliminates fear or doubt. “I AM Life” fills me with the healing peace of my eternal nature and releases the belief that any physical appearance could limit my divine nature.
I print my statements and put them where I see them throughout the day. Reflecting on these Truth statements protects my mind from error thoughts.

My heart and mind are open to learning and growing.
A folktale shares how a spiritual master poured tea into a student’s cup until it overflowed. The student exclaimed, “The cup is full; there isn’t room for more!” The master stopped pouring and said, “Before you are ready to learn, you must empty your cup.”
When my mind is seemingly full of preconceived ideas and beliefs, I am not leaving room for Truth to enter. In order to grow into who God created me to be, I must remember to keep my heart and mind open.
I step forward into a new way of being when I remain curious and allow God’s wisdom to instruct me. I am grateful for a new understanding and for all that God is teaching me. I am ready to learn!
