Today's Affirmation
"Today, I will follow my inner knowing and choose what is right for my soul."

Never turn your back on what you  know is right.  Follow your inner knowing and choose, as often as possible, what your soul is telling you.

The soul knows all that you need to know.  The knowledge that you seek is within you.  It is simply a matter of recalling what you already know.  Deep inside your deepest memory, there is all that you will ever need for right living.

The soul has traveled long and far to collect all human experiences and emotions and this information is available for you. 

Go to the soul for what you  need.  Connect deep within and find what you need.

The soul never lies or deceives.   It is all right and true and good.  And it is just that you should seek within for what you already know.

For bringing what you already know into memory, you expand the possibilities for more correct living, for  light to enter you life and to live a more prosperous, enlightened life.

The time is right to take the time from the business of human life and spend time with your soul.  Meditate and ask the soul what is most necessary for you bring into conscious memory so that you may follow its direction, and thus, make progress in human life.

For what is human life without the soul, and what is the soul without human life.  Both exist for one reason only:  To bring the soul back into perfect union with the Original Source of All That Is. 

And when the soul chooses, for the soul always has the choice, to continue in human life or to continue in spirit, it will continue to learn the lessons it needs to reunite with the Source.  Evolution never ceases.  It continues to continue until the continuing stops. 

When that time is, is not determined, for who is to say, "I have learned everything there is to learn, and now I am done"?

So, be content to learn the lessons, be content to do the work for the sake of the soul.

Be well now and always.

In Love and Light-Always,

Today's Affirmation
"Today, I will consider my soul and choose the highest possible path to wisdom and knowledge."
Man's soul is eternal;  it never ceases to be.  It is ongoing and forever.  The soul is all and the body simply houses it as it learns the lessons of the human condition.
The soul is the living essence of man.  Without the soul is to be dead.  It is for the soul that the body was created.  As a vehicle for the soul for travel into the human condition and gain wisdom.
The soul is light and energy.  It is not physical.  It has no shape or size.  It just is.  It is just pure spirit and energy.
Man's role is to carry the soul.  Metaphorically, "To lose one's soul" is to lose one's sense of self.  To let the lower aspects of character take the forefront of man's action.  It is to knowingly indulge in that which is counter productive to the advancement of the soul.  It is to stagnate and fail to put into practice the higher knowledge that the soul has gained.  It is to choose the lowest possible level of existence instead of striving for the highest wisdom and knowledge.  It is to know the difference between progress and stagnation and to consciously choose stagnation.
There are those who do recognize the difference between the highest good and the lowest level of existence, but choose the most basic of human existence.  And even in this lowest existence, the soul gains knowledge.  It gains the knowledge of pain and cruelty and selfishness and jealousy and envy and anger and hatred.  And in these things, the soul learns human lessons.
Those who choose a higher path of living, also learn.  They have learned love and compassion and peace of mind.  They have learned generosity and joy and helpfulness.
So, dear friends, no matter what path you choose:  the path to higher living or the path that takes you into the depths of human suffering, there are lessons to be learned.
Learn well.  And progress.
Hold the soul dear and cherish it and let it learn. 
Be well now and always.
In Love and Light-Always,

Today's Affirmation
"Today, I will begin manifesting my desires."

Stop just wishing that something would happen in your life and start manifesting it.  Sitting around just wishing, "Gee, I wish...  Gee, I wish..." isn't doing anything for you.l  It just makes what you want seem farther away,  more impossible to attain.
Actively working toward bringing your desires into manifestation is a much better investment of time. 
Remember, however, that manifestation takes time.  What you are manifesting may require a series of other event to occur in order for your event to occur.
Keep at it, though, and don't give up. 
Visualize what it is that you want to see manifest in your life.  Visualize it clearly and specifically.  Create an affirmation to go with it, such as, "This (specify what 'this' is) or something better is now manifesting in my life for my highest good and highest good of all concerned.  In accordance with Divine Law and in the name of all that good and true and pure in Universe."
The more you believe it will happen, the more you actively work toward attainment, the more positive energy you send to what you want.  And eventually, it comes into being.
So, stop just wishing and hoping good things will happen in your life, and begin creating them.

In Love and Light-Always,

Today's Affirmation
"Today I will begin to unclutter my inner self and my personal space."

Our outer environment reflects our inner selves.  Look around your personal space.  What condition is it in?  Is your desk cluttered with junk?  Is your car or the trunk of your car stuffed with stuff that needs to be dropped off at Good Will but you haven't found the time to do it?  Is you closet filled to its limit with belongings that you just can't seem to clear out or get rid of?  And what about the atticv?  Are you storing things there that belong to others and need to be given to them?

All of these are indicators of what is happening inside of us because, like a closet or a trunk or an attic, we store stuff inside of ourselves and just let it sit there piling up.

Perhaps taking a look at your outer environment will help you to see what needs releasing or giving back to others what belongs to them.  For example, are you owning responsibility that really isn't yours to hang on to?  Then give it to the person to whom it really belongs.  Are you holding on to old feelings and emotions like you are holding on to those old shoes that don't fit anymore but just can't give them up?  Are you holding on too tightly to a person in your life the way you are holding on to clothes that are too small for you and telling yourself that one day they will fit again?  

Time for a good Fall cleaning.  Now is the perfect time to clean out.  Fall is a time to let the dead things fall way, to sweep out all of the cobwebs.  It is a good time to drop off those boxes to Good Will and let their contents benefit others.  It is a good time to get rid of clothing (and relationships) that are too small and don't fit anymore.  It is a good time to clear out the attic and give to others what belongs to them (both realistically and metaphorically).

Unclutter your inner self and your life.  By doing this you make room for the  many other good things that want to come to you but there wasn't any room.

Start small.  Unclutter one area at a time.  You will find a sense of peace and lightness in the process.  Good luck!

In Light and Love-Always,

Today's Affirmation

"Today I will reawaken my joy by reawakening my creative talents."

Each of us has a part of ourselves that we bury deep inside because we simply don't have time to cultivate it or enjoy it.  We bury our desire to enjoy what we love because we tell ourselves that we don't have the time.  We put aside our personal satisfaction in order to meet deadlines or fulfill family or career responsibilities.

Now it is time to stop that and reawaken that part of yourself that you buried.  Look deep within and see what you have denied yourself and resurrect it.  Dance!  Plant!  Sing!  Paint!  Scultp!   Knit! Run!  Cook!  Sew!  Write!  Whatever form your self expression takes, reawaken it.  Let it bubble up from deep within and nurture it.  Let it come out.  Enjoy it!

If you acknowledge that you deserve the self satisfaction of your creative endeavors, then you will reclaim your joy.  Universe has gifted you with your talent and your love for creative expression.  Use it!  Honor yourself and the Universe by using these talents.

As for myself, I have reawakened my love of crocheting and am working several projects for family and friends.  With each stitch, I invest my joy and pride in creating into the project.  When I look at my creation, I feel happy, not only happy to do the work, but to see the beauty of what I am creating.  I am happy to have the capability to create something that others can enjoy and use.

So, my dears, invest in yourself, honor yourself and Universe by reawakening your love and enjoyment of your creative talents.

In Love and Light-Always,

Today's Affirmation
"Today I will purposefully learn something new."
Every day is an opportunity to learn something new.  Acquiring knowledge is a beautiful thing.  So, for today, seek out knowledge.  Look up a word you don't know or find out where Tunisia is or memorize the first line of the periodic tables.  Or find out the translation of a common word in another language.
Never let the opportunity to learn something new slip through your fingers.  Make a point to learn at least one new thing every day.  Imagine how much you can acquire by doing this.
Exercise your brain and activate your memory.  Keep yourself in the loop and seek out that which you do not know.
Com muinto amor,

Today's Affirmation
"Today I will recognize that I am an integral part of the whole cosmos."

Nothing can survive in isolation.  Neither man nor beast nor tree nor stream.  All are necessary for cosmic balance.
What we never consider is that the Universe, the cosmos (of which we are a part), is in perfect balance.  We don't consider it because we are so earth bound, so focused on traffic and jobs and struggle that all looks out of balance in our finite world.
But from a more universal perspective, all is in balance.  And all living things work cooperatively to create that balance.
Ironically, the only things out of balance are the individual lives of man.  Man overcomplicates his life.  Creates struggle where none should exist.
What is it about our species that thrives on disharmony??  Are happier because of it?  Healthier?  More in union with the Divine?  NO!  We are frustrated, angry, chaotic, ill, disgruntled.
Why should this be a way to live?  It shouldn't.
Begin recognizing that each of us is a part of something greater, wider, more cosmic than the chaos that swirls around us and tries to envelop us.  Begin recognizing that we are an integral part of the whole, not the whole itself.  Begin recognizing that we are connected to all other living things around us and the more we work cooperatively with our environment and the people in it, the more in harmony with ourselves and with the Universal Source of All That Is.
So, for today, shed your limited mind set and begin considering things from a more cosmic perspective.  You will begin to feel more alive and more vital and more connected to inner working of the entire cosmos.

In Love and Light-Always,
