Prayer for Sobriety

Prayer for Sobriety

Creation exists through the love and will of God. There is nothing
outside of It. The Divine is the source and sustainer of all that is
known and unknown, seen and unseen. God is everywhere present in all
worlds, all universes, in all dimensions and planes of existence. God
is the formed and unformed divine substance of being. God is right
here and now in this moment and always, giving infinite, boundless
love and light to all life.

I am made from and through God's boundless love. I am a child of God.
This divine presence lives in every aspect of my being. It is my
divine inheritance. I am made of this divine substance. I am
inseparable from this good. God breathes and loves through me. It is
that divine yearning within me to fully know the whole, perfect and
complete Presence of God. There is no place in my life where God is
not. The presence of God is in, through around and as me. I live in
the allness of the compassionate One.

From this place of oneness I speak this prayer for and about myself
and all life. I affirm a steadfast willingness to be present with
life. I practice gratitude with all that shows up. However it appears
I trust that it is here for my benefit. I am willing let go of old
unhelpful ways of avoiding, escaping or numbing out. I remember my
Higher power, Mother-Father God, Spirit---however I name it, is all
powerful and loving me always.  I open to Its 100% available
support and guidance. I replace unskillful habits and reach out to
those around me. I choose connection rather than isolation. I affirm
choices, activities and relationships that support my spiritual growth
and sobriety. I am more kind and forgiving with myself. I recognize
progress and let go of the tendency to overthink. Unhelpful self-talk
is interrupted and redirected with prayer and the spiritual truth of
who I am. Occurrences I consider "triggers" now direct me to life
affirming thoughts, words, practices and connections. I welcome and
allow this boundless good into my life as it shows up in myriad ways.
I accept that I am never alone. I embody the awareness that God is my
constant friend, ever-present companion, support and guide, loving me
unconditionally.

I give thanks and celebrate this spiritual truth.

I let go and let God.
And so it is.

Prayer to Surrender

Surrender

That which is everywhere and all knowing envelops life in Its loving presence. It is divine activity, infinite potential and intelligence and It is always available, acting on behalf of creation. It is the source and sustainer of all it is. It is eternal givingness, creating anew in each moment. It is uncaused joy, and is completely available, as the irresistible and unshakable nature of beingness. Its will is always expressing through creation.

I am made of this divine stuff. It flows in, around, through and as me. I am a divine activity, an expression of God. I am inseparable from this, my divine nature. God is my source and sustenance. It is my breath and heartbeat. I am an instrument of the Divine. Gods' will flows through me. I am connected to and inseparable from all that is.

From this awareness I accept and surrender to God's exquisite will. I recognize and embody the divine yearning within me. I let go of attachment to outcome and trust in God's unlimited power and intelligence. The Divine's exquisite boundless capacity conspires for the highest and fullest expression of Itself through me.

With gratitude I rest in faith knowing this spiritual truth.

I let go and let God.

And so it is.

Graceful Aging

Graceful Aging

The infinite eternal one, the great giver of life is ever-present in all of creation. This is the perpetual presence that guides, sustains and nurtures all of life.  Its nature is joy and well-being. This one life, this one presence includes all beings.

I am included in this one life, this one presence. I am a recipient of all the gifts of this life. Its joy is my joy.

I accept that as I encounter changes in body and mind that I am open to a graceful acceptance. I release any limiting beliefs that hold be back from embrace my life to the fullest. I am right now living a full and rich life, filled with love and well-being. There is no limit to joy in my life

Clear Communication

Clear Communication

Enfolded in this one loving Presence there is only God. It is the allness of being moving in and out of form, creating anew in each moment. It is active and present in all of creation, in constant compassionate communion with every aspect of Itself as Life.

And so I am a part of God's loving expression, integrated into Its allness, inseparable from the wholeness and goodness of the One. I am an instrument and activity of this holy communion, a place where God shows up. It is my divine nature to bask in this divine communication, an irrevocable unbreakable  connection with God. I have no edges. There is no place I end and the rest of God begins.

From this place of wholeness and oneness with the Source of my being I speak for myself. I accept a greater experience of clear communication in every aspect of my life. I more easily notice and release any thought, idea or belief in lack, limitation, separation or fear. I maintain an open channel with the Divine through my daily practice of prayer, meditation and communing with nature. In this I am a more sensitive listener. I slow down to hear the God in me.  I trust messages that come through my body, heart and intuition.I am more kind, transparent and undefended when I communicate with others. I notice my self-talk is more loving, gentle and forgiving.   I declare a willingness to listen more than I speak. Honesty is accompanied by kindness. I enjoy and cultivate being an ever clearer, compassionate instrument  in  communication with Life. I lean into  deeper communion with the Divine.

With gratitude and comfort in recognizing  this Truth,  I am assured it is already known and done in God.

And so it is.

Healing from an Accident

Healing from an Accident

There is one Power. It is the Power of the Living Spirit and it is active in every aspect of life. This Power is the healing Power that is always restoring life to its most perfect state.  The Living Spirit Almighty is the source of all strength and all goodness. This Living Spirit is generous and is always giving the gift of energy vitality and well-being to all of existence.

I know that I am one with this creative healing Power. I am one with a vitality and energy of the Living Spirit. 

I accept that the healing Power of the Living Spirit is right now active in my life. I know that my body has the perfect intelligence of the Spirit and knows the way to recover from all injury. I declare that the strength of the Living Spirit is right now lifting me up and making me strong. I know that my body is filled with energy vitality and well-being. I claim this as my divine inheritance and as my natural state.

I accept that I am divinely guided to every healing activity and every healing modality that supports my highest good. I release all fear and mistrust and I open to life as it is presenting itself to me and every moment. I embrace my highest good as it's unfolding through me through my body.

I claim the highest mental health. My spirit is filled with encouragement and inspiration. I am made new by the vitality of the Living Spirit moving through me, and I trust life.

I give thanks for this realization and I release this Word into the Creative Law.

Peace through Oneness and Unity

Peace through Oneness and Unity

God is the essence and substance of absolutely everything. It is expressed in the beauty of nature, the heart of humanity, in all Life. Love, peace, truth and beauty are at the center of all people always. We are a collective One, undivided Truth living in multitudes of form.

God is forever revealing Itself in all that is. It is revealing Itself in me, as me and through me. The presence of this divine and mysterious reality does not depend on my awareness of it. It is, in me, in all people, no one and nothing is excluded. I am unified with all that is and God is all that is.

 My awareness expands to realize that all people, including myself are the children of God. I am able to realize this even when I am faced with opposing ideas and situations that seem contrary. There is no separation between me and any other human being. I understand that the perception of God is expanding for all people and I honor the process. I believe in unity and trust in the powerful love of God to express and expand in all of humanity. Peace and harmony always triumph over what I perceive as chaos. Perceptions are not Truth and as I trust that God is indeed all things, always, everywhere, peace floods my consciousness. The peace of God guides me as I witness world events and in my relationship with all people.

 Knowing all this is true fills me with confidence and peace. The manifestation of this prayer is already expanding in my heart and so I simply release this prayer trusting it is done.

And So It Is

And it is generous it is unlimited it is full of possibilities ideas and inspirations. This is the nature of the divine life to give it's guidance to all and all alike.
