Golden Blessings of Autumn

The golden blessings of autumn to you.

May your body warm to the rays of the sun.

May your eyes brighten at the sight of the yellow leaves.

May your taste buds feast on the experience of squash, pumpkin, and apple cider.

May your heart be gladdened by the golden orb of God’s love.

Giving Up

Dear God, too many days lately I have wanted to give up. I don’t know why I am here. I certainly don’t want to be. Help me to know that you are with me and that there will be better times ahead.

Death of a Dreadful Dad

A much beloved man in our community died this weekend after a long bout with dementia. We knew him as someone who was always willing to help us in his roles as handyman and spiritual teacher. Unfortunately, he also had been long estranged from his only surviving child, who lives in another community. From the little we can piece together, we can surmise that he was not a particularly good father. How do you memorialize such a man? This blessing is for his daughter.

May you know that it is okay to have mixed emotions.

May you feel God’s Love and Life healing those places in your heart and soul that feel so broken.

May you remember the good moments you had with your father.
May you know the good he did in the world.
May you, in time, find the strength to forgive him his faults.

May you know you are always a child of God.

I am a thoughtful mentor. I suspend my prejudice about how things should be and instead try to sense how my mentee’s talents want to unfold. I act as a guide, not as an authority figure. I am a good listener, using my head, heart, and gut. I hear not only the words, but also the feelings and implications beneath the words. I respect my mentee’s existing strengths and build on them. I readily give encouragement and complements. When I give corrections or criticism, I form the critique in a way in which my mentee clearly knows how to improve. I enjoy seeing my mentee grow and succeed. I gracefully let go when our mentor/mentee relationship has reached its conclusion.

Dark Places

As I shine a Light on the dark places of my sub consciousness, I know that God is with me and I am safe.

Belief Blessing

May you believe in the power of the Light
To overcome the darkness in your world.

May you believe in the power of what is right
To transcend what is wrong in your life.

May you feel deep in your bones that there is someone,
all-knowing, all-powerful, and always present,
walking with you through all your moments.

Dear God, help me to continue to upgrade my beliefs, exchanging negative ones for more positive ones. Help me to have more faith in your love and in your power to help me to overcome challenges. Help me to have more faith in the power of my prayers and in my power to help change the world for the better. A-men

Power of Thought

Tomorrow’s talk is going to be on beliefs. Here is the affirmation I wrote for the service.

I believe in the power of my thoughts to help bring good into my experience. I think thoughts of perfect life, and my body becomes healthier. I imagine the universe as infinitely abundant, and my life becomes more prosperous. I think thoughts of success, and I am amazed by what I achieve.

Clear Message

Today’s horoscope really hit the nail on the head for me.

Thank you for being straight with me today, God, and telling me in no uncertain terms what I need to hear. I know that anything or anyone can be an instrument of your wisdom. Help me to take the guidance into my heart and act on it in a constructive way. Help me to be gentle with myself as I make changes in my life.

Dreary Day

I do not allow the weather to color my emotions for the day. In my heart are a gentle warmth and a sunny smile. I am glad to be alive. I radiate my happiness to others, like a ray of the sun peeking between the clouds.

Care without Feeling Consumed

A dear friend of mine is destroying her tummy because she is worrying so much about other people’s problems. Last service we offered her various affirmations and visualization exercises. I think many of us work hard to be concerned without being overly attached.

I can care without feeling consumed by other people’s problems. I offer up prayers or affirmations for those I am concerned about. But I also recognize that the outcome is between the individual and God. I release my attachment to the situation. Perhaps I imagine it being placed in the hands of God or an angel, sent on the wings of an eagle, or surrounded by a beautiful bubble floating up to the heavens. I feel my body relax and give thanks that the highest good is now being done.

Caring about the World

I can safely care about world events. When I hear of a tragedy, I focus on my connection with God. I imagine the people in the crisis as I would want them to be. I see them as healthy, well-fed, and living safely and comfortably in their homes. I imagine them happy and surrounded by loved ones. I then do what I feel led by Spirit to do. This may be to send love and light. It may be to send money or to make a long-term financial commitment to an organization. It may be to do something else. I know that Divine ideas never conflict and whatever I am led to do is for the highest good of all, including me.

May you look forward to the week ahead
And have no inclination to stay in bed.

May you have work that brings you joy
And no coworkers that annoy.

May your frustrations be few
And many rewards be given to you.

May you have a boss and clients that give you praise
And when the week is over may these be remembered as happy days.

Blessing for a Broken Heart

Last spring a celebrity had major heart surgery a year, almost to the day, after his wife had filed for divorce. For those of us who believe there is a connection between our minds and our bodies, this was hardly a coincidence.

May you have a strong and healthy heart.

May you find within yourself the eternal love of the Divine,
The love that can never be taken from you and can never end.

May you always have loving companions with whom to share your journey.

After you have lived a long and happy life, may you be greeted

on the other side by loved ones who have passed before you.

Staying Motivated

Today I experience a renewed freshness in my routine. I feel a surge of motivation, remembering why I originally started on this path. I see the bigger picture and understand the importance of my daily actions. I find tiny aspects of it that make me smile, give me joy, bring me satisfaction, or make me curious. I feel the energy of other people who are also on this path and know that in some way, that I may not understand, we support one another. Lastly, I know that God is also walking beside me.

Happy Surprises

I now open my arms wide and invite happy surprises. Today I experience joyful, unexpected events and answered prayers. My world is full of synchronicities, delightful coincidences. They are proof that the Divine winks at us. I am grateful for my life that is filled with wonder.
