Awareness Keys

Shanti and me on a walk at Ananda

I am so blessed to be living in a time when we are growing ever more aware of our spiritual truths.  I live in a community of souls who choose to be aware and conscious of what is going on within and around us to the best of our current ability.  We have so many opportunities to clean the inner perceptions that block our experience of Joy and Divine Presence because we live in a community dedicated to growing spiritually.

Swami Kriyananda wrote a wonderful book of affirmations that I enjoy using as one of my daily spiritual tools called “Affirmations for Self-Healing”.   In it he wrote:  “Man needs to learn to change his focus from what he is #aware of  to what he is #aware with.  He needs to become more aware at the source of his awareness, at his deepest center, God.  Through this awareness, his enjoyment even of the surrounding world becomes intensified a thousandfold.”  I hope you enjoy one of his affirmations and prayers as follows:

Affirm:  I behold the world with eyes of calmness and of faith.  For I know that, as I view others, so will I myself become.

When we accept that #awareness and let it come up every time we delude ourselves into thinking that our judgments are about anyone but ourselves, we can free ourselves to live in more joy.

Prayer:  Infuse me, from my deepest center, with Thy joy.  Make me aware of Thee, my divine Beloved, in all that I behold.

May your days be filled with the joyful Presence and Omnipresent good.

Know that you are loved and blessed.  Namaste,  Rev. Barb

Affirmations that Work

I know the power of my thoughts, word and actions.  I have seen them work for me and I have also seen them work against me.  The only common thread is that I am there in both scenarios and I choose where I place my faith and trust.  Will I trust Spirit and practice the Presence or will I constrict the flow of good into my life because I have not opened my will, my thoughts and my heart to another greater possibility.

I frequently use Scientific Healing Affirmations by #Paramhansa Yogananda as it is one of my favorite tiny gems that helps me keep my spirit on course.  In it he points out that there are three physiological centers that we can use in affirmations.  The first is “will” affirmations that need to be centered in the “3rd Eye” or spot between the eyebrows.  When we affirm something from our will, with our focus on the 3rd eye, whatever we place in the law has far more power and intention behind it.   The second physiological site is for a “thought” affirmation and the focus is on the “medulla oblongata” which can be found in the back of your head at the bottom of the skull where there is a slight indentation.  We use this center when our thoughts need a greater boost to plant mental seeds in the universal law, knowing that they are securely planted in fertile soil where they will sprout healthy roots.   The third location is for “devotional affirmations” that need to be planted in our hearts.  We often do this quite naturally without full awareness.  The purpose of this blog is to help you in being more deliberate and intentional when using these three physiological centers to support your affirmations.

Perhaps you are willing to #practice the #Presence with me.  What are you affirming in your life today.  Where is your focus.  If it is not supporting your happiness and joy then redirect your thoughts, your will and your devotion to a higher place.

Know that you are loved,  Rev. Barb
