DAILY SPIRITUAL NUGGETS: 30 Days of Faith, Hope, Prayer, and Gratitude – Day 17 “The Practice That Shifts Our Consciousness”
Today’s Body Connection: Health and fitness has no finish line, only opportunities for continual growth. Just when you feel that you have conquered one goal, there will always be another intention to set and achieve. Think of your practice as a constant invitation to expand your conscious awareness of your inner strength. The practice has only one purpose and that is to let us know our own divinity. Every workout will help us to create the life we desire. There is nothing holding us back from our greatness except the belief that we are less than amazing.
Meditative Thought: “We are affirming, declaring, and claiming the truth about the condition we desire to see manifested, realizing and convincing ourselves of what is true in the absolute realm.” — Linda Watson, ALSP.
Linda Watson, Agape Licensed Spiritual Practitioner, reminds us that prayer is about changing our consciousness. No matter what the “story” or situation is, our prayer is to shift our minds away from the problem and look towards the solution. The solution is always God. If you are in need of money, your prayer is to connect with the spirit of abundance. If you are dealing with relationship issues, your prayer is to remember that you are love; therefore you can love. If you are faced with health challenges, your prayer is to tap into the Divine energy of wholeness. Release your “story” and embrace your glory.
Today’s Action Plan: Today, examine the situation you are praying about. Find the spiritual quality that is seeking to emerge from the story. Here are a few examples: money problems, pray to know your abundance; relationship issues, pray to know self love; work problems, pray to know your divine creativity; sickness and health challenges, pray to reveal your wholeness. Take time to journal about your insights.
Affirmation: Just for this moment… just for this breath, I declare my divine truth within every situation. Every problem reveals God as a solution. And so it is. Amen
