Remember

I joyously bless the people who have touched my life.

Grandparents, parents, siblings, members of my extended family, teachers, friends, coworkers – every person I’ve known has, by his or her example, helped me feel more deeply what it means to be human. Some have encouraged my curiosity. Some have taught me life skills. Some have modeled positive attitudes and behaviors. Some have loved me fully and unselfishly. And some have helped me learn to love even when loving felt difficult.

Today I remember the people whose lives have touched mine. I pause to think kindly of each one as I savor memories of time we shared together. Whether we’re even now in one another’s lives, have lost touch, or are separated by death, I know our shared experiences continue to enrich our lives and deeply bless us on our spiritual journeys.

I joyously bless the people who have touched my life.

 Steadfast

 I am a steadfast spiritual finder.

No matter where I may be on my path, sometimes my spiritual life feels easy and sometimes it feels hard. There are times I enjoy new insights, blissful clarity, and peace. Other times, I may struggle, feeling stuck and directionless or even lonely on my walk to realize more and more of my DIVINITY.

At times like these, I declare I am a spiritual finder. I renew my commitment to my spiritual journey. Although my attention may wander, my DIVINITY is always the same and is utterly dependable. STRENGTH is the POWER I use to remain steadfast.  

Although my attention may wander, my DIVINITY is always the same and is utterly dependable. STRENGTH is the POWER I use to remain steadfast.  

Wherever I am in space, time, or consciousness, I steadfastly remember to invest time in meditation so I more fully realize my DIVINE POWERS of LOVE, STRENGTH, and WISDOM; I express them with ease and grace.

 I am a steadfast spiritual seeker.

Prosperity

I am prosperous enjoying my daily blessings.

I am comfortable with the person I see in the mirror as I begin my day. I am filled with energy and enthusiasm for my work, my recreation, time with family or friends, or time for learning and reflection. My gratitude grows as I count my blessings like taking part in activities I enjoy and investing time with people I care about. As I prepare for sleep, I am grateful for the blessings of a day well-lived.

More than money or possessions, prosperity is an awareness of well-being and my ability to enjoy simple blessings. I strengthen my prosperity consciousness as I bless and appreciate my home, my friends, my family, and my work. I increase the flow of abundance by sharing my time, talents, and treasure in service to others.

I am prosperous enjoying my daily blessings.

 Fearless

Grounded in my DIVINITY,

I fearlessly live authentically.

In the past, I may have hidden my inner light, afraid to be myself. I may have tried to please others by conforming to someone else’s idea of who I should be. I may have shrunk from an aspiration, fearing that I would fail in pursuit of my goal. I may have doubted the DIVINE PERFECTION at the core of my SPIRITUAL BEINGNESS, identifying with my perceived flaws and feeling small and inadequate.

Today I make a new choice. I choose to live fearlessly, drawing upon my POWER of FAITH to believe in myself, my POWER of IMAGINATION to envision my best life, and my POWER of UNDERSTANDING to know my DIVINITY.

Bold and brave, I am fearless as I live my life authentically, pursue my dreams, and express my DIVINE NATURE.

Grounded in my DIVINITY,

I fearlessly live authentically.

FAITH

Using DIVINE FAITH,

I easily create win-win solutions.

I express my POWER of FAITH as my ability to believe, perceive, intuit and have conviction. I use FAITH to “see beyond or deeper” than what is apparent or manifested.  I am grateful as I see and act on ever present good even when it has not yet manifested.

As I faithfully pray, I discern and ground myself in my ever present and enduring DIVINITY even through the most difficult circumstances. As I concentrate on harmony and love, I dissolve all thoughts of lack, limitation, and discord in my mind.

As I faithfully speak, I use realized words of Truth that express my conviction in everyone’s fundamentally DIVINITY.

As I faithfully act, I access my strength and fortitude to surmount any challenges.

Grounded in DIVINE FAITH, I move forward with ease and grace.

Using DIVINE FAITH,

I easily create win-win solutions.

Smile

As I smile, I lavishly share joy and love from my DIVINITY.

Smiling at my reflection in a mirror, I see the light shining from me. I feel a quickened awareness of the omnipresent PRINCIPLES of JOY and LOVE. I realize how simply and beautifully my smile expresses those PRINCIPLES without any need for words.

Even if a language barrier prevents me from understanding another’s words, I know most people respond to a friendly smile. My smile conveys goodwill, communicates delight from an unexpected blessing, and expresses awe at the sight of a star-filled night sky. A child not yet able to talk shares love and joy quite effectively with a sunny smile.

I feel happy when others smile at me. This friendly, welcoming gesture reminds me that we are all inherently PRINCIPLE, one in SPIRIT.

As I smile, I lavishly share joy and love from my DIVINITY.

Love

I lovingly open my heart to others.

Unity’s co-founder, Charles Fillmore said, “God is LOVE: man is loving” (Teach Us to Pray, p. 13).

Unity’s co-founder, Myrtle Fillmore said, “God is LOVE; we make DIVINE LOVE into loving” (Healing Letters, p. 38).

God is the PRINCIPLE of LOVE I use to be loving. I am loving when I show my affection and give nurturing attention. I speak loving, positive words showing how much they mean to me. As my words affirm their goodness, beauty, and intelligence, I watch those qualities bloom like flowers blessed by sunshine.

I extend my arms and embrace my family and friends with the warmth and comfort of unconditional love. I support them with compassion and care on their life’s journey.

I pray with those I love knowing their innate DIVINITY is LOVE

 I lovingly open my heart to others.

World Peace

I imagine a world transformed

by peace and love.

World peace begins within my mind and heart. Aligned with my Power of Imagination, I breathe deeply and envision every person laying hold of the PRINCIPLES of LOVE and PEACE; everyone is loving and peaceful. I see the world’s people transforming strife, anger, and division into reconciliation, peace, and unity.

Holding this vision, I see the entire world aglow with radiance. Harmony and cooperation heal the world’s wounds and encourage love to flower in each person’s heart.

I carry this vision throughout my day. I see our underlying ONENESS regardless of apparent distinctions. I deploy DIVINE WISDOM and UNDERSTANDING to illumine my thoughts and inspire my words. When I couple DIVINE WILL with WISDOM and UNDERSTANDING, I guide myself to act in ways bringing peace to the world.

I imagine a world transformed

by peace and love.

LIGHT

 I am DIVINE LIGHT!

When darkness casts shadows in my life or in the life of someone I care about, I call upon my inner DIVINE LIGHT. “LIGHT is the UNDERSTANDING PRINCIPLE in mind.” (Fillmore, Charles, The Revealing Word, alphabetically under “light”)

Just as the light of the sun illuminates the sky, my mind is illumined by DIVINE LIGHT; IT brightens my soul, and warms my heart. Even during life’s darkest moments, DIVINE LIGHT is always shining in me and from me just as IT shines in all people.

Remembering my DIVINE LIGHT, I find the strength and power to lift myself up. Through acts of service and loving-kindness, I share understanding that helps guide others through any darkness they may be facing. Every smile, kind word, thoughtful deed, or offer of help has the potential to brighten someone’s day.

I am DIVINE LIGHT!
