Make Room

When you begin a course in self-improvement and development, make room for change.

You will not fit in your old surroundings.

You will acquire new and different friends.

They, too, will have walked along a different path.

When you begin your course, you will be pulling in all kinds of new support, and new sources of appreciation, recognition, and love.

It will all start from within.

Then, when it is filled and overflowing, you will see something different coming back to you.

Your transformation will lead to a new kind of space.

It may even lead to a new physical location.

But it will definitely create more room in your life for who you really are.

Make room for this.

You are expansive.

Calmly Moving On

As we are working to get ready for a major new project, my husband and I are clearing out a lot of stuff.

It helps to move it off site, where it takes on a new perspective.

While it was around us, we felt needed it, and saw that it could have a purpose in the future perhaps.

Now that it is off site, it does not necessarily appear to be in the picture.

I am grateful for the opportunity to view stuff differently.

It may have been part of a good decision to accumulate it at the time, but we have moved on.

And so can it.

Today, more than ever, I am realizing my purpose and my connection to this society.

I am feeling at home with who I am, along with practicing the new skills of my choice.

It is useful to have the skills others chose for me, too, so I am not complaining.

But being in sync with what feels most natural and valuable to me is far better.

I feel sober, purposeful, happy and fulfilled instead of anxious and depressed although working hard toward excellence and blooming where someone else planted me.

Now that I have chosen where to plant myself, life is far, far better.

There is room for expansion, instead of working in a little cramped box of someone else’s description and definition.

I burst out of that box into something completely different, and although I am glad to have my previous, very well-developed skills, there is a relaxed and carefree and gracious purposefulness to my present fulfillment.

In short, I fit.

I am able to do what I love and find that it fits into the world in simple ways.

I do not have to keep justifying what I do to myself and those around me although I had a not too common and admirable skill set.

I am comfortable with who I am and what I do.

I cannot describe how much easier it is to live in synchronicity with who I am.

Actually living in peace

I am actually living in peace.

I see what is going on around me, but I am no longer part of it.

there is actually something more powerful within me than without.

I have found the stillness, the quiet, and the peace.

I am living a presence of peace in my life.

I am living a present of trust.

Good things are placed in my path.

There is only the one path and it is from within, and it is all peace.

What feels best to me?

I am giving more thought to what feels best to me.

I love the idea of trusting my own judgement to take care of myself.

I love that my needs and desires are important and come first.

The years of damping down my feelings are over.

Why do I think I have feelings if not to act on them?

Someone else’s priorities have no place in the decisions I make for myself.

I have the freedom to move in the directions that feel best to me.

Hurray!  Me forever!

I have just promoted myself to the top decision-making position!

Taking Steps, Big or Tiny

I love me today because I am taking the steps and doing things I have always wanted to do.

I am taking workshops which move me toward my dream of living in the country and having many ways of serving others and creating a good income.

I am learning how I perceive myself and taking action which uplifts my concept of myself.

I am celebrating the steps I have already taken.

I am learning how to keep moving in the directions I choose.

Since this is not always easy, I remind myself that the alternative is unacceptable!

Sometimes there are days where this is harder than others.

But, having experienced the others, I know they are coming, too.

High energy days produce certain results, but so do low energy days.

For example, I am working on a small knitted piece of handwork with tiny, tiny stitches.

It shows me that even tiny steps help you create something beautiful.

Sometimes my life proceeds in tiny steps, but those are good days, too.

Even reflecting on steps to take, big or tiny, helps move me in the right direction.

If that is all I do some days, it is still worthwhile.

What I Am Feeling Now

I know I am feeling more loved, cherished and adored because I am able to spend so much more time on work that is important to me.

I am not so distracted by the past and by fearful thoughts.

I find myself writing inspiration that comes to me because I have established a habit of listening for it.

That is a side benefit to having to solve long-term, deep problems.

I enjoy my time of spiritual study.  It is my priority.

I do not do it just to get through the day or to complete a project or to solve a problem.

I do it because it feels natural to reestablish my connection in consciousness with my Source, with the Universe Who Loves Me.

I am experiencing a different kind of nurturing and protection than parental love.

This love and protection and nurturing is with me always, and has been always, even when I was going through my difficulties.

I am glad to know that now.
