Dissolving Boulders I: The Spoken Word
by Rev. Rita Scheibeck
There have been, and still are, many times when I have run up against roadblocks (or what seem to be boulders!) on the way to my earthly and spiritual destinations. Some of these obstacles may require a minimum of attention and expended energy to overcome. But what about the larger barriers that I can't seem to get over or around?
For me these hurdles are usually situations I have conjured myself, either mentally, emotionally, or verbally. I may be thinking that someone or something in the "earth world" is standing in the way of my highest outcomes. I could be fearful about a situation based on what I have heard from others. It's possible that I have even spoken a difficulty into existence myself by disregarding how I use my spoken words. So once the stumbling blocks seem firmly embedded in our paths, how do we get rid of them?
Over the next several weeks we'll look at four techniques for removing situations that seem to be obstructing the path to our good. For now, let's start with one of the most powerful tools in our arsenals: positive affirmations.
An affirmation should always be written and spoken in the "now." They are most effective when we say them with strong emotion, succinctly, firmly, and confidently. A good affirmation is easy to remember and recite, and can be comfortably turned into a prayer, a meditation or a chant. For today, here are a couple of good examples.
Affirmation: I am a creation of Infinite Source Energy, endowed with wisdom, strength, courage, and power. I now apply these attributes to every situation in my life.
As I move fully into my most positive beliefs, I now visualize myself as healthy and whole, infinitely blessed, and in perfect alignment with Spirit.
In the next three weeks we'll talk about The Silence, gut instincts, and back up. I hope you'll come with me on this journey of dissolving the boulders in the paths of our lives.
Affirmation: I now affirm that nothing and no one can stand in the way of my good.
I now allow, acknowledge, accept and affirm that this is so.
