Weekly Affirmation #25

By | 2017-06-12T11:45:30+00:00 October 23rd, 2017|Affirmations, Trust|

  I am no longer willing to underestimate myself. Without trust, underestimating myself is easy. Trust creates appropriate boundaries, helping to delineate me: when I begin, where I end. Without boundaries, my sense of self is loose, sloppy, unknowable. The first step: put an end to overlooking, underestimating all of me. I no longer tolerate [...]

Affirmations for Blame

By | 2017-06-12T11:45:31+00:00 October 18th, 2017|Affirmations, Blame|

  Blame is the energy which holds me in the past. Blame finds fault either in events, others, myself, or God/Divine Source. Blame is also a protective mechanism, a shield against trouble. The problem is how blame tries to deflect responsibility often because of fear and a lack of trust. Observing what keeps me from [...]

Weekly Affirmation #24

By | 2017-06-12T11:45:31+00:00 October 16th, 2017|Affirmations, Blame|

  I forgive myself for forgetting I am divine. Blame tightly held creates division within. Over time, this alienation promotes a deep sense of separation, of loneliness. Blames serves up abandonment. Overcoming blame requires finding a path across the divide, finding a restoration to wholeness. Forgiveness freely offered and lovingly claimed provides the bridge to [...]

Weekly Affirmation #23

By | 2017-06-12T11:45:32+00:00 October 9th, 2017|Affirmations, Blame|

  I look in my heart to understand my life. As a productive, intelligent person, I can be easily distracted trying to figure out everything within the rationality of my mind. This dominance of my mind can overshadow the importance of my heart and its primary role at the essential core of myself. I ask [...]

Affirmation #22

By | 2017-06-12T11:45:32+00:00 October 2nd, 2017|Affirmations, Blame|

  I fully accept responsibility for myself with grace and ease. Responsibility is a moving target because my life is always in some motion of shift, change, growth or learning. No matter where I am in my spiritual growth, it is always good to take stock of my responsibility especially to myself. I have the [...]

Weekly Affirmation #21

By | 2017-06-12T11:45:33+00:00 September 25th, 2017|Affirmations, Blame|

  I no longer fear my inner guidance. When trouble happens and responsibility must be assessed, it?s not unusual to blame myself and mistrust my own inner guidance. Blame diverts, distracts and divides, leaving me without what I need most: self-trust, especially of my own inner voice. Working to re-establish this trust is an important [...]

Dirty, Dusty, and Drained

By | 2017-09-12T14:15:28+00:00 September 15th, 2017|Cheryl Marlene|

It’s been a month since my feet have hit a trail. A month filled with shift. A month that seemed to move a mountain within me. A month ago, I hit a wall, especially as hiking was concerned. When hard stuff happens, pushing through, almost as if nothing had happened, is a common way to [...]

Weekly Affirmation #19

By | 2017-06-23T12:06:03+00:00 September 11th, 2017|Affirmations, Confidence|

  I feel the core of me balanced in truth. As the critical voice begins to loosen its hold, I begin to have a clearer awareness of my sense of center, my inner core. At my center, I find balance and truth. As this sense of getting to my core improves, my sense of truth [...]

Weekly Affirmation #18

By | 2017-06-23T12:17:00+00:00 September 4th, 2017|Affirmations, Confidence|

  I feel my inner strength flow with the determination of a river. A river always seeks the path of least resistance. The calmest part at the center of the flow. Always flowing, determined to move beyond turmoil, past obstacle, into the fullness of its channel. A river doesn't question its confidence. A river lives [...]

Weekly Affirmation #17

By | 2017-06-23T12:16:36+00:00 August 28th, 2017|Affirmations, Confidence|

  I eagerly let go of self-judgment. The first step towards a firmer sense of self confidence is the release of harsh self-judgment. Self-assessment which serves learning and growth is a healthy part of life. Yet when this assessment tears down, belittles, destroys a positive view of self, then self-judgment is not healthy. The unhealthy [...]

Affirmations for Regret

By | 2017-09-04T17:49:12+00:00 August 23rd, 2017|Affirmations, Regret|

Woulda, coulda, shoulda. Yesterday, last week, five years ago. Regret is about my disappointment with my past. Regret wants a re-do, for life to be different. Regret anchors me in the past where change and motion forward are not possible. Regret wants to punish and belittle. Instead, I use the pain of regret as the [...]

Weekly Affirmation #16

By | 2017-06-23T12:16:22+00:00 August 21st, 2017|Affirmations, Regret|

  I live my life in this moment. The power and balance of who I am in this moment. Here, now. The past pulls me backward with blame and regret. The future freezes me in fear and anxiety. My ability to choose, to let go, to learn is focused in this moment. Be here, now. [...]

Weekly Affirmation #15

By | 2017-06-23T12:15:58+00:00 August 14th, 2017|Affirmations, Regret|

  I make the best choice for myself in each moment. There is no good reason to undermine myself. And if I am, I have a choice in how I respond. I can choose unforgiving criticism. I can choose debilitating harshness. I can punish myself for perceived failure. But, why do this? Stay stuck? Stay [...]

Weekly Affirmation #14

By | 2017-06-23T12:15:45+00:00 August 7th, 2017|Affirmations, Regret|

  In each moment, I do my best. Truly absorb this: In each moment, I do the best I can. Sure, looking back, I might have made a different decision. But the me in this moment is expanded beyond the me of the past. If I hold myself back because of self-judgment, then that's my [...]

The Spiritual Importance of Agreements

By | 2017-08-04T10:22:52+00:00 August 4th, 2017|Akashic Records Study|

  As a spiritual concept, integrity is foundational. Integrity is alignment of truth. Yet, because the future is never 100% predictable, integrity is also a risk – a risk that the future may be different than anticipated. Living on an island alone, integrity is much easier to honor and keep. However, living in a world [...]

  Luminous Community is a fellowship of serious spiritual seekers held within the light of all who participate and All That Is. Vulnerable sharing is the basis of this community.
