My Special Place

I am always in this special place which Love has provided.

I am always in this special place where I am loved, cherished and adored.

I am treasured in this special place.

I am beloved and protected.

I am watched over.

I am given good things.

I have wonderful companionship.

All things that I like to do are given to me to do.

I am connected with the beauty of the natural environment.

I feel good and happy.

I can think as broadly and as widely as I want to.

There is room for me to carry out the ideas that I love so much.

There are no limits to what I can conceive and do.

A place has been provided for me to thrive.

I live in the abundance of my ideas and in the unlimited beauty of my surroundings.

I am always here, resting and productive.

It is my home at last.

A New Heritage

I am infinite divine light.

It is natural for all this goodness to come to me.

I expect and receive it most graciously.

I consciously embrace my heritage as the daughter of the Most high.

I think the thoughts of a spiritual being.

I experience the results of those thoughts.

As always, I am drawn to those of like-mind and they are drawn to me.

I find agreeable community all around me.

Who knew life could be like this?

Breaking Your Life Apart

When you commit to spiritual study, you are letting in concepts which will break apart your current life even as they build you a new one.

As you study, you will gain new insights.  They will begin to work their way deep within your thought.  A few years later, you will realize you no longer think the way you did when you began your study.

Then, the old vessel, or way of thinking, will have to five way.  The last shreds of what was holding your old life together will either dissolve gently or just shatter, and you will find you are standing on entirely different ground.

It may look the same, or you may find yourself in a new place.

The spiritual work you have done for years, which has been during you to make changes, finally has its completed way with you, and you yield into your new place.

Your old life has broken apart and you now step into your new one.

Be a Beginner

Do not be afraid to take on something new.

What is the risk?

Do you have something you want to learn or do?

It is different being a beginner as an adult, but it is worth cultivating the beginner frame of mind.

One of the people I know who is a beginner is my husband.

Although he has lots of experience in many areas, he is not afraid to tackle new projects which require new skills.  

Some of them turn out fine and some need tweaking as they go along.  

But he is always moving forward.

I am also a beginner.  

I find it fun “to jump off the edge” into something new.  

I love learning new things either through workshops, reading, or just teaching myself.  

It lets me appreciate the experts.

Starting something new puts me in a different frame of mind.  

It is refreshing.  

Sometimes I have to scramble to figure things out.  

Being a beginner lets me enjoy many new worlds.

Sharing My Gifts

It is becoming more and more natural for me to share my gifts.

The more I discover how innate they are, I simply can’t resist.

I went on a walk with my husband this morning down our drive and then through the woods.

I was feeling so happy that a new musical chant for young children flowed into my mind.

I couldn’t wait to get back to write it down.

It just kept expanding and getting more fun.

On the way back, we encountered more of nature and were enriched with more observation.

These too, will lead to more sharing at and

Spiritual Study, SPIRITUAL ECONOMICS by Eric Butterworth

This is the second time I am reading this wonderful book since discovering it in 2010.

Today I am studying Chapter 3, “The Law of Visualization”.

I love the fact that my life has changed so dramatically and completely as I embrace so many new spiritual concepts. 

I appreciate the very firm foundation and long-term practice of the tradition of spiritual healing I grew up with.

I am so grateful for the motivation and inspiration of the many authors and workshop leaders who continue to uplift society by their work.

Unique and individual needs across a vast spectrum are being met this way.

Give Yourself Something Important

The most important things for me are peaceful moments.

I became aware of them while teaching pre-school music.

I followed through on an idea to transition the students from their class activities into music by starting each class with three deep breaths.  (

This gave us a moment to relax and to refocus.

I use the same technique for myself with even just one breath, when I realize I am moving so fast that I am tense.

Valuing my peace has allowed me to expand it for myself.

Now I am living in the country, where I can soak up the peace every day.

I am grateful for this most important thing which I have given myself.

Love Commitment

I love that I have made a commitment to my own peace.

I have taken steps to move myself in the direction I wish to go.

I can breathe easily even though there are a million things to do.

I am living in peace with myself.

I have chosen beautiful surroundings.

I have imaginative and talented companionship whom I respect and love deeply.

I have room to express who I am in so many different directions.

I love the feeling of being unlimited.

I have learned patience, most valuable.

Everything is happening in its own time, including all of our precious projects.

My Right

I deserve every wonderful thing.

I am loved, cherished and adored.

I have been listening and listening until I can hear the right and true message.

And I have always been loved.

The challenges of my early childhood lasted long into adulthood.

But now they are visible and they are solved and deeply resolved.

Sometimes horrible scenes are triggered, but there is so much more comfort and love on this side of my life.

I discovered I had the right.


I have the right to my own body.

I have the right to my own happiness.

I learned how to create it and how to throw off someone else’s horrible influence on my life.

Even deep, repeated wounds can be healed.

Then the little ones which come from unthinking people later on mean nothing.

Do the First Things First

When you do the first things first, the rest follows in priority order.

What are the first things?

They are the simple things.

They almost look inconsequential, but they are not.

The simple things are courtesies, considerations, graciousness.

Respect for all, kindnesses, things forgiven.

What you send out returns to you.

If you do not understand some of the things that are happening to you, the answer always lies within.

What are your most deeply held beliefs?

They may not be what you think they are.

If you look at recurring situations or unresolved ones, these will lead you to consider factors you may not want to see.

Once you can see them, however, you have the key.

Then as you listen more deeply than ever before and cease judging yourself or others, you will hear the answers which will reform your life.

You will be able to take the little steps, and as you become more and more willing to do so, you will find that you have an altogether different view of yourself.

This new view, without the hidden little things, resolves the situation and gets you unstuck from creating recurring minor, or even major, disturbances.

With the first simple things as a conscious continuous practice, you will be able to listen for the next things.

You may be surprised to find they are a continuation of the simple things.

You Are Precious

I am so grateful for the inspiration and light and harmony and grace I receive each day.

I have learned to trust in these things more than in anything else.

I am so glad they counter the obstacles of partisanship and emotion so effectively.

I am finding that my teaching philosophy of, “Every child is precious”, also applies to the precious adults they have all become.

They may not know it.

Life most likely did not deliver that message to them.

But a few do know it.

And they act like it.

And they live awesome, wonderful lives.

So I want everyone to know it.

We are all precious.

However, we have had whatever life experiences were provided for us.

But now, we can learn to give ourselves much better life experiences.

It is worth searching to find out how, and reading everything you can find on the topic, and rewriting your mental and emotional patterns.

Oh, and loving yourself.

Right now.

Just as you are.

You are loved, cherished and adored.

And you are precious.
