When creating an affirmation, it is helpful to use words that resonate deeply with you. Try out some of the words; see if they cause a visceral reaction. I sometimes write out the affirmation without too much thought and then take time to fine tune it. Recently, I’ve been working on the concept of staying connected to the Divine. I believe that we are spirit having a human experience and that with awareness and quiet, we can connect to God’s Divine Grace. You can define that any way you like. But, I believe it’s available to us and can lead us to a peace beyond that of human comprehension. So, one of my affirmations is: “When I pray and meditate, I enter into union with the Divine; miracles are created and without struggle, manifest. I love the words: Divine, miracles and without struggle.” When I hear them, I think “hope.” I have found that I now spend more time in prayer, more time in silence, Miracles? Oh, yes, they have manifested. Is it because I am paying more attention, waiting for them to appear or is it because they have multiplied because of my time spent with Spirit? Do I really care why? Would you?
