Affirmation: I am always manifesting. I manifest to my highest and best.
Do you find it easier to like or to dislike people? Which do you think more people lean towards, acceptance or rejection? I happen to be someone who likes almost everyone from the first moment, unless something happens to reverse my opinion but there are peole who dislike almost everyone, unless something happens to reverse their opinion.
The latter must be a safer way to exist in this world. Think of all the disappointment and hurt you’d av0id. It’s like expecting to fail a test. You know how that works. You expect a failing grade and so you aren’t surprised you didn’t do well and pleased if you get even a “D”. You are pleased with whatever comes along because your expectations were so low. Do you want to get a “D” in life or worse yet, an “F”? Does that add to your happiness or detract from it, always expecting so little from people, from life?
My husband says “Pessimists are right 100% of the time.” I think they’re usually right and once in a while are shocked to discover they are not. My affirmation is: I am always manifesting. I manifest to my highest and best. Of course, the opposite is true too but how would that serve me; how does it serve the world or God to believe, to fall into the pits of despair and rejection? I’m not speaking about clinical mental illness like depression or anxiety. Those are maladies beyond the solo help of positive thinking. I am speaking about the healthy individual who chooses to see the world and the people in it as less than creatures of extra ordinary beauty and grace. Imagine if we embraced each other with love, dignity and grace. Imagine if we gifted each other, those we easily love and those that are more challenging, as the glorious God created creatures they are? Yes, we need to have healthy boundaries. Most of us cannot take home, allow in, every person we encounter either physically or spiritually but we can grace everyone we see and meet today with a smile and a prayer for their well-being; a blessing that will bring kindness and ease to all those we encounter. A blessing which will reflect off them and back onto us and create an energy in the world that just may bring some peace and harmony not only in our little piece of this earth but into the entire universe.
It is easier to hate than to love. Choose love, choose kindness, choose gentleness. Manifest the light of God. Make your world and the whole world a better place at least for today, and hopefully for every day afterwards.
