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~

Where I Am
  How often do you ask yourself  'what if and if only'  questions?  "What if I had chosen a different path, partner, career, home?  Bet I'd be happier if I had," is the frequent litany for many. We get fidgety staying still. We kvetch about how things aren't the way we want them to be, a

On Wings
  Four years ago, at this moment, an event was in the process of taking place that would change my life as I knew it. My mother was in the 'birth canal' on her way to her new life. A few months earlier while she was on hospice, we would have the most extraordinary conversations about what t

Allowing Others To Effect Their Own Destinies
Most Sundays find me at Circle of Miracles, which is an interfaith spiritual community created 19 years ago by Rev. Hannelore Goodwin. It is where I, and many who attend the ecumenical services, find family of choice, inspiration, community and healing. The room is a warm and welcoming place where D

The Only Life You Can Save
One of my favorite wise woman poets is Mary Oliver whose words touch my heart in ways that few others can; as if they could have come through me as well; so personal they are. Today, while visiting my former place of employment, one of my co-workers pulled out an anthology consisting of the works of

Abby's Light
  When a light comes into the world, we hope that it will last indefinitely, knowing that eventually it will fade. When a child is born, a parent doesn't expect that his or her light will diminish before it has a chance to fully express itself...and yet, sadly it happens.  Abby Schumer was
