Let Go Let God with Inner Peace

I am at peace in the present moment.
At times I may feel uncertain or anxious about the direction of my life. Am I doing the right thing? Am I accurately interpreting Spirit’s guidance? When that happens, I do what brings me peace: I rest in the Silence and feel the wholeness of this moment. How relieved and at peace I am right now! I’ve “touched the peace that surpasses all understanding” of which Paul spoke. I am in touch with the Truth during my moments in the Silence. Right where I am is where I am meant to be. My path is valid and my mission noble. I clearly know the changes I need to make and the right timing for each of them. I have faith in Spirit’s ever-present, indwelling guidance. I am at peace in the present moment.
Go in peace. The mission you are on is under the eye of the Lord.–Judges 18:6

Let Go Let God Through Change

I gracefully move through life’s transitions.
As colder days approach, trees shed their leaves and animals prepare for hibernation. They instinctively move through the seasons. In contrast, humans are prone to resisting change even though we know it is an essential part of growth. I may notice myself worrying or fighting change. Then I remind myself I am able to prepare and move through any change I encounter. I envision myself shedding old beliefs and ways of being just as a tree releases leaves. Like the hibernating animals, I prepare my mind and body for a time of quiet and reflection. I see divine order in the leaves reappearing each spring. My life also follows a pattern. I emerge from each season stronger, wiser, and more loving.
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.—Ecclesiastes 3:1

Let Go Let God Provide Life

I am whole. I am vibrant. I am alive!
Ballet dancers move across the stage with intricate steps and twirls, leaps and precision. Their movements appear effortless. In reality, they practice every dance again and again. They exhibit tremendous dedication, endurance, and zeal. Life energy flows through their bodies in a beautiful way. God expresses vitality in me in many delightful ways, as well. In prayer, I pause to envision each part of my body. I bless every cell and affirm its wholeness. From the top of my head to the soles of my feet, I feel the energy of life flowing through me. I notice parts of my body that feel strong, and I affirm the restoration of any places of discomfort. I am whole. I am vibrant. I am alive!
God formed man from the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and the man became a living being.—Genesis 2:7

Let Go Let God to the Depth of Soul

I discover living waters in the deep well of my soul.
A folk story tells of a farmer who set out to dig a well. The ground was still dry about 15 feet down and he grew frustrated. He moved to another location and repeated the process twice more. Then his wife suggested he simply dig deeper right where he stood. He followed her advice and soon found an abundant water source. At times I may act like the farmer. My spiritual practice may seem arid and unproductive. However, by continuing in faith, I move deeper into the well of my soul. Jesus told us about the “living waters” of the abundant, eternal Source. I tap this wellspring of joy by going within­—right where I am. If my practice feels dry, I do not abandon it. I simply dig deeper and discover all I could ever want.
The water that I will give will become in them a spring of water gushing up to eternal life.–John 4:14

Let Go Let God Give Thanks for Prosperity

I embrace abundant living and give thanks.
True prosperity is no mystery—it is a manifestation of faith. Jesus gave us a pattern to follow. A crowd of 5,000 who had gathered to hear him speak needed a meal. Taking five loaves and two fish, Jesus turned his attention to God. He acknowledged his Source, gave thanks for what he had, and blessed it. He anticipated an abundance of food and a miracle occurred. I follow the example of Jesus and give thanks in advance for what I desire. I share love with others and love returns to me. I give thanks for my healthy body, nourish it, and use it to serve God. I am vigorous and vibrant. I live in faith and gratitude and I am prosperous.
And taking the five loaves and the two fish, he looked up to heaven, and blessed and broke them, and gave them to the disciples to set before the crowd. And all ate and were filled.—Luke 9:16-17

Let Go Let God Forgive

In the spirit of Oneness, I choose to forgive.
No one can force me to forgive. Forgiveness is a choice I make when I am ready to release the burden of anger, pain, and shame. I forgive when I believe there is a better way. I am ready to experience freedom and love without limits. New experiences await! Why do I delay my choice? I begin by forgiving myself for languishing in the old stories. Breaking out of familiar patterns takes great energy. Whether I believe myself bound by my own actions or the actions of others, I have the choice to forgive. I imagine myself at an open window. Golden light streams over me and I am enveloped in God’s healing power. In the spirit of Oneness, I choose to forgive.
Put away from you all bitterness and wrath and anger ... and be kind to one another.—Ephesians 4:31-32

Let Go Let God Participate

I live life to its fullest.
Every party, meeting, or event provides an opportunity to express divine love. I prepare by acknowledging the presence of God in those I will meet. When I arrive, love shines in and through me as I honor the divinity in all. I am patient, kind, respectful, and lighthearted. The activity of Spirit in me—love—pulses through me. This constant circulation of energy acts as a magnet and draws love to me. I participate in life with an open heart and see the best in family, friends, and coworkers. I may say silently or aloud: Namaste. The love in me greets the love in you. My enjoyment of giving and receiving love leads me to participate in living life to its fullest. I revel in the power of divine love.

Let us love one another, because love is from God; everyone who loves is born of God.—1 John 4:7

Let Go Let God in Autumn

I am in a constant state of rejuvenation.
I am in awe of nature’s consistency. Every autumn, the earth begins its cycle of release, rest, and replenishment. Winter is a time for rest. Then comes the rebirth of spring. By summer, flowers are in full bloom. I take cues from nature to improve how I nurture my body. My day includes periods of work, play, and relaxation. I prepare for sleep by releasing the events of the day. I awaken ready for the new day. The trees undergo a major transformation every year with what appears to be little effort. In a similar way, I accept the cycles of my life. I honor the Divine working through me. I am in a constant state of rejuvenation.
And God said, “Let there be lights in the dome of the sky to separate the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years.”–Genesis 1:14

Let Go Let God Pray for Others

I center myself in the healing power of prayer.
When I listen with my heart, I hear unspoken needs. A friend describes a challenge and I find an opening for empathy. A relative shares a health concern and I think of the many ways in which God heals. A storm ravages a community and I envision renewal unfolding. Whether I am listening to the news or talking with friends, I hear a call to prayer. I center myself in the healing power of Spirit. Without focusing on a specific outcome, I call to mind any concerns I have for others. Friend or stranger, individual or nation, we are members of one Universe. I affirm: Spirit provides exactly what we need. Circumstances that seem challenging are resolved. We are whole. We are perfect. We are One.

Then he said to the man, “Stretch out your hand.” He stretched it out, and it was restored.—Matthew 12:13

Let Go Let God in World Peace

My thoughts and actions contribute to peace in the world.
Gallon upon gallon of rain water clarifies the muddiest of lakes. Collective prayer brings about similar results. Trusting this principle, I affirm world peace daily. I am one with brothers and sisters all over the world affirming peace. My prayers for world peace lead me to more inner peace. When I hear news about war or conflict, I still my mind and affirm peace. I deny energy to disharmony and focus on the presence of peace. As I center on the Christ within, I radiate peace in every interaction—from a conversation with a stranger to a heart-to-heart with a loved one. My thoughts, prayers, and actions contribute to peace in the world.
When the ways of people please the Lord, he causes even their enemies to be at peace with them.—Proverbs 16:7

Let Go Let God with Self-Care

I take great care of my mind, body, and spirit.
Jesus taught us to love one another as ourselves. When we hear this, we may automatically think Jesus is speaking only about loving others. The truth is Jesus asks us to love ourselves first. I am better able to care for others when I take care of myself. I honor my body temple by providing myself with good nutrition, adequate exercise, and appreciation for what I bring to the world. I read uplifting books and magazines, I speak affirmative words about myself and others, and I refuse to be pulled down by another person’s pessimistic outlook. I look for and find the best in myself and in each person. In mind, body, and spirit, I take great care of myself.
Your eye is the lamp of your body. If your eye is healthy, your whole body is full of light; but if it is not healthy, your body is full of darkness.—Luke 11:34

Let Go Let God all is in Divine Order

I affirm divine order and see God’s love in all things.
The Bible story of Joseph teaches the wonder of divine order. Kidnapped by his jealous brothers and sold into slavery, Joseph attained wealth and power in his new surroundings. This story reminds me that throughout my life many challenging situations have resulted in wonderful new beginnings. Affirming divine order does not magically change a situation. Rather, it assures me of God’s love, everywhere present, working in all circumstances. I rejoice as blessings emerge from what I once thought of as mistakes. Like Joseph’s brothers, I may hold regrets that call for a resolution. I may be afraid of repercussions from past actions. Yet, trusting in God’s love, I know divine order is at work within all people and situations. God is everywhere present.
God intended it for good.–Genesis 50:20

Let Go Let God with Commitment

I renew my commitment to spiritual growth.
Before taking a picture, a photographer carefully focuses the camera to ensure the best results. Likewise, I put first things first by focusing on my connection to God. Every morning, I renew my commitment to staying centered in Spirit. I vow to grow, change, and explore the depths of my being. Nurturing my relationship with God is my highest priority. I quiet my mind and reconnect with Spirit. I take a few deep breaths as I relax. Then I listen. What does my inner guidance lead me to see, hear, or know? I experience a greater calm and awaken to new feelings and awareness. I move forward with confidence, knowing God always guides me in the right direction. I strengthen my connection with Spirit daily and life expands with new possibilities.

Strive first for the kingdom of God ... and all these things will be given to you as well.–Matthew 6:33

Let Go Let God in Harmony

My outer life mirrors my inner peace and harmony.
The circumstances of my life often reflect my state of mind. If I think I am stuck, I may be out of alignment with my values and spiritual practices. I prayerfully look into my mind and heart. I compassionately see whether I have been living out of harmony with Truth principles. I may harbor resentment toward another person. Perhaps I am living from a place of fear rather than faith. Becoming aware of any discord empowers me to transform it. I take the matter to God within and release it with love. Divine Love restores my life to its natural flow. As I become more aligned with my Highest Self, my relationships with people become radically more harmonious. I embrace our Oneness and I am at peace.
And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace for those who make peace.—James 3:18

Let Go Let God Provide Healing

The light of Truth illumines my mind and body. I am whole and well.
Like beautiful stained glass illumined by sunshine, I am aglow with the light of God. I gratefully claim my innate wholeness. I may embrace a health regimen based on science. Yet I can do more than eat well, exercise, and hope for the best. Wellness includes attention to my body, mind, and spirit. Today I take a stand for my God-given health. When I notice any anxiety, worry, or fear creep into my mind, I shift my thinking to the healing power of God. With gratitude, I affirm: The light of Truth illumines my mind and body. I am whole and well. Nothing can take away my wholeness. I see it, feel it, and know it to be so. I am a radiant, healthy expression of God.

He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace.”–Luke 8:48

Let Go, Let God

I let go and open my mind and heart to guidance from God.
I may push myself to near exhaustion. When this happens, Spirit guides me to rest my weary brain and body. As I let go, the wall built from my “do-it-all-myself” attitude begins to crumble. With the first opening, the light of God shines through. The words of Jesus come to me: “I am with you always.” I relax in the awareness of Spirit within me. My breath anchors me and I release my tight hold on challenges and circumstances. Letting go brings down the perceived wall of separation. Divine love, wisdom, and understanding flow in me. I am open to receiving God’s help. By consciously letting go and letting God, I keep the channel open for answers, guidance, and love, assuring me I am never alone.
And remember, I am with you always, to the end of the age.–Matthew 28:20

Let Go Let God be Mindful

I embrace life by focusing on the present moment.
Technology leads me to engage in multiple activities at once. I may eat while watching TV; talk on the phone while walking in the woods; or check my email while having lunch with a friend. Multitasking keeps me from being fully present in each activity. It may leave me feeling disconnected. To restore harmony I practice mindfulness—the art of focusing attention on the present moment. When I eat, I savor every bite and enjoy different textures and flavors. In nature, I listen to the sounds of birds singing and notice the beauty of the landscape. I engage fully in conversations and listen with empathy. If my thoughts wander, I gently bring them back to this moment. Mindfully awake, I embrace my connection with Life.
He makes me lie down in green pastures; he leads me beside still waters; he restores my soul.—Psalm 23:2-3

Let Go Let God with Strength

I am strong and unstoppable!
Today I focus on my divine power of strength. Knowing I am strong, I pursue my goals with confidence, determination, and perseverance. Any temporary setbacks only serve to increase my resolve. Just as steel becomes stronger after it is heated to a high temperature, my ability to draw on my inner strength grows as I steadfastly overcome obstacles. If I encounter what looks like a roadblock, I call upon my divine faculty of strength. I turn within and feel the mighty power of God. I affirm: I am strong and unstoppable! Passion wells up within me as I envision my dreams. With renewed strength and faith, I see my goals through to completion.

Those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary.–Isaiah 40:31

Let Go Let God Relax

I relax and connect with my Source.
Sometimes I may be anxious and catch myself holding my breath. I quickly center myself by relaxing my shoulders and breathing in slowly. Then I exhale all the air from my lungs. As I let go of tension, I connect with my Source. I concentrate on my breathing for a while—mentally using my outbreaths to bring relaxation to every part of my body. The energizing activity of God flows in and through me. Breathing in, I open my heart. Breathing out, I release the old. I experience love, joy, and gratitude in the depth of my being. The rhythm of my breath draws me into the presence of God and I relax. I am filled with the life of Spirit, surrounded by the unbounded love of God. My soul rests gratefully in sweet silence and peace.
Return, O my soul, to your rest, for the Lord has dealt bountifully with you.—Psalm 116:7

Let Go Let God in Remembrance

I remember the gifts of all who have passed.
On days when the nation comes together in remembering, I pray for those who mourn. I may attend a memorial service, concert, or prayer circle. Regardless of the method I choose, I honor those who have passed as I affirm peace for their families and in the world. I also remember the anniversaries of the passing of my own loved ones. I give thanks for their wit and wisdom, their help and love. I am who I am because of their part in my life. I honor who they were and their contribution to the world. How blessed I am for family, friends, teachers, mentors—for all of those who have helped me grow. I remember them today with heartfelt gratitude and love.
Then he took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and gave it to them, saying, “Do this in remembrance of me.”—Luke 22:19

Let Go Let God on this World Day of Prayer

As I pray, I connect my highest thoughts with my deepest faith.
On this World Day of Prayer I heal and heal others. I pray for peace and the world is at peace. No one is a stranger to me and I have no enemies. I pray with people in my community and in every corner of the world. The healing love of God flows through my heart, blessing all of humanity. My heart expands and I feel the yearnings of all people. The good desires of all beings are my desires. Their prayers for peace and understanding are mine as well. I experience deep compassion for my brothers and sisters. As I pray, I connect my highest thoughts with my deepest faith. I allow the love of God to heal my heart and bless the world. I am a healer of humankind and peace prevails.
And this is my prayer, that your love may overflow more and more with knowledge and full insight.—Philippians 1:9

Let Go Let God Open to Grace

I open my heart to the grace of God.
I love to see flowers awaken to a new day. As the sunlight touches them, they respond by opening their petals in a beautiful display of color. In the same way, I open my heart to the grace of God. The activity of grace in me is as constant as the sun rising and falling. Grace is always present. My heart’s opening takes no personal effort when I surrender to the light within me. Grace comes naturally. I feel warmth, acceptance, and love. With each new moment, I surrender my old ways and embrace more of this divine activity. I let grace bring about perfect outcomes and let go into a deep feeling of trust and peace. Whatever efforts I make in life, grace adds more good than I could ever imagine.
Let us therefore approach the throne of grace with boldness, so that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need.—Hebrews 4:16

Let Go Let God in Faith

I have faith in divine direction.
While walking trails in a nature preserve, I find signs marking the way. I may not have a clear picture of the way through the forest. I simply trust the signs and follow the path to my destination. Likewise, as I start new ventures, make important decisions, or heal relationships, I have faith in divine direction. I do not need to envision the entire pathway before I start. God guides every part of my journey—even when I do not see clearly around the bend. What a relief to let go of the need to know every detail. If I encounter obstacles, I regard them as stepping-stones. Everything leads to my divine destination as I exercise faith in the mighty power of God.
If you have faith the size of a mustard seed ... nothing will be impossible for you.–Matthew 17:20

Let Go Let God Just Be

Divine love is the essence of my being.

Being productive is important—even necessary—to life. Yet constant doing may damage my health. It may also keep me from knowing my intrinsic value and experiencing love. I restore my well-being by taking time to do nothing. I let go of mental planning or worrying and center myself in the boundless peace of God. I release any belief that I have to do more or become someone better to be worthy of God’s acceptance and love. Divine love is all-encompassing and is, in fact, the essence of my own being. As I relax and simply be myself, I am revitalized. As I bask in the stillness, I experience my eternal oneness with the infinite love and peace of the Divine.
“Be still, and know that I am God. I am exalted among the nations, I am exalted in the earth.”—Psalm 46:10

Let Go Let God Be Free

I live in the present with joyous abandon!
When I see children laughing and having fun on a playground, I may long for the same kind of carefree existence. Yet as a child of God, I am always free. Focusing my attention on thoughts of faith and love, I rise above seeming limitation. I release the past and live in the present with joyous abandon! As a spiritual being, I use my God-given power to choose my thoughts. I keep my attention on the highest and best, and good flows into every part of my life. I become a new and confident person. My world expands to greater heights than I could have ever imagined. My mind is at rest. I am at peace. Thank God I am joyous and free!
For freedom Christ has set us free. Stand firm, therefore, and do not submit again to a yoke of slavery.–Galatians 5:1

Saturday, September 5, 2015

Let Go Let God Act on Guidance

I act on divine guidance with confidence and faith.
Guidance comes to me as an insight, a feeling, or a sense of rightness. I release my struggle for answers and open my heart to receive. I ask God for clear guidance and the wisdom to recognize it. Then, I wait expectantly, yet patiently. Knowledge and insight come to me naturally. My spiritual practices of prayer and meditation fortify me for my next big decision. I am attuned to my inner Christ Essence. I have unwavering faith and trust in God. When decisions need to be made or when problems arise, I instinctively turn within. I listen for God’s guidance, knowing I will receive it in due time. I move forward with confidence and faith.
I will show you what someone is like who comes to me, hears my words, and acts on them. That one is like a man building a house, who dug deeply and laid the foundation on rock.—Luke 6:47, 48

Let Go Let God with Quality

I focus on the quality of my experiences.
True joy lies not in the quantity but in the quality of my life experiences. Engaging in too many activities—even fun activities—may leave me feeling drained. I am deeply nourished when I do a few things with great love and attention. I begin my day in prayerful discernment, setting aside, without guilt, any nonessential tasks. By focusing on what really matters I make more heartfelt connections with others. I notice the beauty of my surroundings. I savor my meals. Rather than rushing through an endless list of activities, I focus on each moment of my precious existence. Focusing on the quality of my experiences becomes a habit as I consciously practice doing less and paying more attention. I am aware of God in every moment of the day.
The kingdom of God is among you.—Luke 17:21

Let Go Let God Find Acceptance

I find acceptance in friendships and experience the love of God.
So many spiritual practices are available today—from yoga to poetry writing. Some friends meditate. Others paint to express their gratitude. It’s time for me to try something new. I release any fear of family and friends not accepting my new practices. I look to Jesus for inspiration. The people in his hometown of Nazareth remembered him as a boy—the son of a carpenter. They did not recognize his wisdom. This did not stop Jesus from sharing his message of love. Jesus created a new circle of friends. I follow his lead and connect with loving people. My friends lift me up and challenge me to grow. I find acceptance in new friendships and experience the love of God.
And he said, “Truly I tell you, no prophet is accepted in the prophet’s hometown.”—Luke 4:24

Let Go Let God in Lessons

I am grateful for the lessons in my life.
As children head back to school, I reflect on how much I am still learning. I look for lessons in my actions, reactions, and feelings. I turn within on challenging days. I listen to my inner wisdom and learn how I may handle a situation better next time. I give thanks for everything I learn—from finding a shortcut saving me time to discerning when to make my next big move. Every encounter is a chance to learn. I see with eyes of curiosity, wondering what insight I may gain from each interaction. I release judgment and replace it with acceptance and gratitude. When I find patterns I want to change or reinforce, I open myself to Spirit’s guidance. God shows me the next right action. Lifelong learning leaves me fulfilled and at peace.
A scoffer seeks wisdom in vain, but knowledge is easy for one who understands.—Proverbs 14:6

Let Go Let God in Comfort

I am immersed in God’s comforting love.

In times of sadness or sorrow, I may turn to familiar sources of comfort: favorite foods, loving friends, or a gift for myself. While these offer temporary release from pain, for long-lasting comfort, I turn to God. I settle in to the comforting love of God and quietly release my concerns. In the Silence, I return to the Truth—God’s desire for my life is always the highest and best. I close my eyes, breathe deeply and slowly, and feel the presence of Spirit. My heart is filled with the warmth of God’s love. Any concerns I may have dissipate, and my faith is restored. I am immersed in the comfort of Spirit. I rest secure in the knowledge that I am valued, guided, and protected.
And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, to be with you forever.—John 14:16
