I Deepen My Faith in Goodness


There is one creative power, one mind. It is the power if the living Spirit and it operates through the one mind to create and express goodness, to create life. This creative power is always active and present. It gives itself fully to all and all alike. It is constant, steadfast and steady. It is infinite and eternal.

I am one with this creative power, one with the one mind.

I accept a greater experience of goodness in my life. I open to receive a deep faith in the good of life. I trust the creative power to move through me to express more good, more love, more kindness and more peace. My awareness of the constant non-wavering spiritual truth behind life is unshakable.

I celebrate this realization of goodness and my awareness of it. I accept deepening of faith with a sense of gratitude.

I release this word into the law that returns to me its intent.

And So It Is

Freedom from the Effects of Arthritis


There is one divine, creative power that is always active, continuously revealing perfect wholeness. This power is ever-present in all of life. It gives its intelligence and wisdom to all of existence. There is a natural flow to life. The power of life to renew itself is unlimited. Freedom is absolute.

This creative power, this renewal, this freedom is active in my body, forever revealing a greater wholeness. My body is the substance and creation of the divine one, made in the perfect pattern that is continuously creating and informing all of life.

I accept complete freedom from the effects of arthritis in my body. I open to a greater experience of wholeness and flexibility. I release any ideas of discomfort and embrace the complete renewal of my body.  The easy flow of movement is my natural state and I am filled with ease and confidence as I realize the activity of the one healing power at work on my behalf.

I give thanks for this realization of wholeness and I release this word into the subjective mind of the one.

And So It Is

Creating Peace

Creating Peace 

The Genius creator of all there is, known as God, is the divine intelligence that is everywhere present all of the time.  From the largest galaxy to the smallest atomic particle, this creative presence is amazing.  Its nature is peace, love, beauty, balance and harmony and it exists eternally.

My life is animated by this creative power and it motivates the words of this prayer.  Just as my life is a living expression of this intelligent presence, so are all of us, unique, diverse, and each a one of a kind.

This prayer affirms that regardless of circumstances in our personal world or our planet, the inner landscape of our personal experience is calm and peaceful.  Every experience is an opportunity to see the Divine cloaked in the garb of our personal expectations.  Tending our thoughts like a garden, we weed out negative, destructive, unproductive thinking.  In its place we plant seeds of love, joy, and peace.

Minding our practice, we devote time daily to commune with nature, cultivating our relationship with the Divine in our own unique ways.  This brings a sense of calm, allowing life to live through us unobstructed. 

Grateful for this deep connection with the Divine, I release this prayer to those spiritual laws that bring more love, peace and joy into our experience.


And so it is. Amen.

To Know Oneness with Spirit

To know oneness with Spirit

There is a presence in the universe that is always giving itself to all of creation. It is the creative life force that connects life to itself. It is the one mind forever conscious of itself and all creation. This presence, this life force, this one mind is ever-present, all-knowing and all-powerful. It is present in all of existance.

Therefore, it is present in me and in my life. I am one with the life force that animates my being. The one mind is my mind. This one presence is fully present in me. It is who and what I am. It is all that I am.

I open to a greater experience of oneness. I feel it and I know this oneness deep inside myself in the moments of quiet. I know and express this oneness in all the activities of my life. My awareness is bright and clear. I notice, I remember, I give my attention consciously to this experience of oneness which is always available to me. I devote myself to nurturing and supporting this connection.

I am grateful for this realization of oneness in my experience.

I release this word into the creative medium which responds fully to its highest intent.

And So It Is

Peace Prayer

“Peace is the power at the heart of God.”

This Power is always available, endlessly expressing in creative forms. The divine energy which everything is made up of is molded uniquely as each one of us.  We are the representation of God in the here and now.  In the endless time that brings us to this present moment, I share this prayer of peace for us and this planet as we continue to evolve.

Let common sense prevail and calm heads unite in our government and the nations of this world to bring about Good.  Everything now is aligned by divine forces of spiritual law to bring about peace.  Peace rises within the hearts of humanity to see more clearly the commandment that we love one another.  Leaders emerge that see the deep spiritual connection of our precious planet and its residents and work together to strengthen all avenues to peace.  Peace is the vision, love is the strategy, and practice is the means that we heal ourselves and our world.  Thus, I affirm that these elements are already active in our lives; and we are free to be a stand for peace in the world.  We bring it into our interactions with our self and others, and this encourages others along their path to peace.

Peace is my foundation now.  When I am shaken from it I say: Breathing in, I calm my body. Breathing out, I smile. Dwelling in the present moment, I know this is a wonderful moment.

With gratitude for the feeling of peace, calm, and wellness regardless of what is going on, I let this prayer go confident the spiritual laws have already made it so.  And looking for, we find more peace in our world as we go about our lives, and this uplifts others.

And so it is.

Healing for our Planet

Recognizing Divine Spirit, the center of all life, where at its core peace resides in an unwavering and ever expanding way, just like the ripple of a pebble dropped in a pond.   This invisible presence is the Divine Source of all life, it cannot be seen, but it can be felt in every act of love and peace, as the formless that gives rise to the formed.  It is eternal and changeless, the source of all creation.  It is the recognizing Divine Spirit, the center of all life, where at its core peace resides in an unwavering and ever expanding way, just like the ripple of a pebble dropped in a pond.   This invisible presence is the Divine Source of all life, it cannot be seen, but it can be felt in every act of love and peace, as the formless that gives rise to the formed.  It is eternal and changeless, the source of all creation.  It is the pattern of perfection in all, as all, through all.  There is nowhere this peace is not.

 I am one with this power and this presence right here, right now, as me, in me, and through me.  Every part of my body is in harmony with the Living Spirit of Peace within me.  Every thought, every action is aligned with peace, it is the true nature of my being.  It is my divine center, the sustenance of my life, and the power behind my word.  And just as I know this is the truth of my being, I know it is the truth of every being on this planet, for we are ONE, united and inseparable!   

It is through the grace of God I speak my word for and about, each and every one, knowing through the intention of this prayer, an opening for healing our planet has taken place.  I accept a greater awareness of Spirit for each transgression we may feel and replaced with a greater knowing and trusting that we are never alone and that no matter how bleak or hopeless it may seem, God is always there lighting the way to a greater power within us that transcends any seeming challenge we may be experiencing. I claim and accept for each of us, an absolute knowingness that peace resides in the hearts of each and every world leader and decision maker, and that ultimately peace, unity and inclusivity reign supreme!   

 It is with a grateful heart and joy filled expectancy I give thanks for the shift in consciousness I know has taken place in me, and in and through each of us as the One Mind, of which we are all connected. 

 I release my word into the Law with deep faith and conviction that as it is spoken, so it is done.  

 So Be It and So It Is. 
 Amen!

Love and Peace in Every Heart

The creative spiritual substance of the universe is love. Love is forever invigorating, renewing, revitalizing, and it is pure substance. It exists throughout all creation. Love is the sole impulse and the greatest incentive. It is everywhere present as the impelling force in all life.

As we are created from this love and filled with it, we merge with the All That Is. There is nothing outside this immeasurable love. The natural byproduct of love is peace. As we love, peace merely comes to us.

So as world and national and local events arise, and we humans forget that love is all there is, I speak word on behalf of all of us in this moment. I claim and accept that as we awaken and remember the love, peace returns in each heart and mind. As each of us utilizes our spiritual tool of remembering, it affects all life. So in this moment I accept for each of us a willingness to be willing for brand new beginnings by virtue of our spiritual intention. I claim and accept that each of us is a powerful vessel of love which produces the peace that is so necessary for the world right now.

I celebrate the joy this practice brings as we each participate in unison. It is with gratitude that I release this spiritual mind treatment to the law which manifests it as our experience. I let it be done, easily, and so it is.
