Yes, of course.
I’d like to start this with discussing what affirmative prayer is not.
Affirmative prayer is not begging, pleading, or petitioning God to send you a new job, to take away your aliments, to win the lottery, to pass an exam, to meet the right partner. A begging mind in prayer comes from a place of lack.
Affirmative prayer does not equal casting spells, summoning spirits, or turning away from The Divine.
Affirmative prayer is also not just positive thinking. Positive thinking is wonderful. However, positive thinking alone isn’t enough. It doesn’t get us our highest and best in life, because it often lacks the intrinsic belief of wholeness, completeness, and worthiness. It also often lacks initiative and action.
Positive thinking is often a spiritual bypass to the internal work of weakening our saboteur voices in our mind, ditching our limited belief system, engaging our wisdom mind, and moving into clear laser-focused action. We have to be prepared to turn away from the conditions and beliefs that are limiting us in our life and turn towards that which we want.
What is affirmative prayer?
Affirmative prayer is to see yourself as God sees you, and to declare your great good with your thoughts and words into your life. (Remember, depending on the affirmation you might need action too.)
Our words are acts of creation, and to pray an affirmative prayer put us in direct relationship with The Divine by attuning us to see and feel the flow, function, and form of God right where we are - all around us, through us, and as us.
There are many ways that you can speak affirmative prayer into your life. I prefer the teachings from Science of Mind. There’s no circumventing The Divine when you pray in this way.
There are five steps.
1. Recognition - God is everywhere and all there is. Naming and feeling the presence of God around, in and through your life already.
2. Unification - As God is without, God is also within. Naming and feeling how I am already One with Source.
3. Realization - Speaking the Spiritual Truth. This is the reason I came into this prayer session.
4. Thanksgiving - Giving thanks for both the big and ordinary blessings of life.
5. Release - Closing the prayer by releasing it to the Divine Law.
When I align with those five steps I am aligning myself with God. I am tuning my spirit, soul, and body (mind) with that of The Divine Mind.
‘So shall my word be that it goes forth out of my mouth; it shall not return to me void, but it shall do what I please and it shall accomplish that for which I sent it.’ Isaiah 55:11
‘The words of a man’s mouth are like deep waters; and the fountain of wisdom is like a flowing brook.” Proverbs 18:4
‘You shall also decree a thing, and it shall be established for you; and the light shall shine upon your ways.’ Job 22:28
Simply put, we are meant to live a full and beautiful life. We are bestowed the creative power of thought. We can use that creative power of thought to destroy, to harness fear, or to love and prosper.
God is everywhere and through everything. That means The Divine is the wellspring within us. Align with that beautiful and always available Light to affirm your great good. Remember, it is the Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Let’s go co-create that through our affirmative prayers.
To a Confident, Sexy, Love filled life!
