Declaration

Words have immense power to alter our perception of reality. One measure of your world view are the results you experience in your life.  The word ‘declare’ comes from Latin “to make clear”,   “to reveal” , “to make manifest.”  Create a ‘declare eclair’  filled with luscious, sweet, delectable stuff.  Declare joy. Declare success. Declare abundance. Declare love.

I often ask myself:  “What would someone have to believe in order to be living the experiences I am having at this moment?”  I take the ‘me’ out of it temporarily, so I don’t go getting all defensive about it and can step back and approach it with a bit of objectivity. I then explore the beliefs or ‘the story I am telling myself’  about whatever might be occuring.  Next step is to apply declarations.  Call them affirmations if you would like.  Our minds are so powerful and clever that it is important to state them in the affirmative.  Rather than saying “I don’t want to feel angry.” (our minds delete the word ‘don’t’ and instead focus on the word ‘angry’.), a declaration might be: “I choose to feel peaceful.”  Instead of stating:  ” I don’t want to eat all of that junk food.”, substitute it with “I eat healthy, delicious foods that nourish me in body, mind and spirit.”  In other words, focus on what you DO want, rather than on what you don’t want.

One beautiful way of declaring is using the words I AM (as in what God was said to have spoken to Moses at the Burning Bush)

 

I AM abundant.  I AM love incarnate.  I AM joyous.  I AM experiencing wonder.  I AM healed, whole and healthy.  I AM creative. I AM living my passion and purpose. I am courageous. I AM vibrant.  I AM free.

So what is it that you AM?

 

A beautiful song for your Bliss-filled day to carry you on waves on love~

What Is A Quaker?
Throughout my life, I have been to Quaker Meeting a handful of times. I don't consider myself part of that fold, but resonate with the essence of it. When I have entered into that space, everything has slowed down and I am pulled into a state of serenity. In Quaker services, there is silence until o

International Day of Friendship
    " Ya  gotta  have friends."  So go the lyrics to Friends sung by the Divalicious Bette Midler.  To my way of thinking, every day is one in which I celebrate friendship. According to the United Nations, July 30th is International Friendship Day. This peacemaking body proclaime

When I Was A Boy
I have been following a thread on a group Facebook page  for The Good Men Project  that was prompted by a video I had posted that showed a young woman being harassed by two young men while she was walking home from school. What happens next is conversation stirring.  One by one, other men step u

Foolish Notion
    Lately I have been rolling through my mind thoughts about origin of violence in the world. I saw a video recently in which Whoopie Goldberg was explaining a statement she had made that it was okay for a man to hit a woman back if she hits him first. If she didn't want to be h
