(13) ★I AM★ Affirmations for Health Wealth and Happiness – YouTube


Star Child by Wayne A Smith Sr

I am powerful, far beyond any human comprehensible measures.
I am more precious than any material that men hold as precious treasures.
I am star stuff, composed of absolutely everything the universe is composed of.
I am partnered from and with the universal mind, the ultimate creator, the essence of love.
I have been chosen in Him before this worlds foundation.
Here with a purpose to rejuvenate consciousness to a higher dimension.
I am from a place called nowhere, which by placing a space between the w and h, makes a being, now here.
I am now here, from a place that is absent of ailments or hunger, devoid of sadness or tears and unhampered by the rust laden anchors fear.
I am all that is for the universe resides within me and uplifting a neighbor, serving humanity with my insights and passion for poetry is my purpose.
Bring peace to one another with soothing encouraging words, by pouring the pure waters of love on smoldering anger will bring your best to the surface.
I am a star child, a traveler, an immortal energy, a spirit which has never had a birth, timeless and only changes but will never die.
I am a drop of water from The Ocean of Abundance, the subtle warm breeze which carries my voice as the echo of a distant eagles cry.

At all times, in and out of season, be cautious and show care in the way you speak.
Words can crystalize or darken your demeanor and can give you power or can make you weak.
Say absolutely nothing that in the future, you may regret.
Quiet lips and an open mind is the best policy to go by, on that you can bet.

RICHNESS AND GLORY©

 

God causes the day and the night to take their turn,

He permits fires to rage and forest to burn.

He causes clouds to bring forth life giving rain,

And He controls the hands of time and allows it to erase all pain.

 

There never is a day or night that passes by,

That our merciful Father cannot hear our cry.

God knows our hearts, so there is no need to fear,

For our Heavenly Father shall wipe away each and every tear.

 

Be rich in good works, be willing to give and ready to share

Then down this narrow path of life, you surely will be treated fair.

Loving thy neighbor as thyself, gives God much pleasure.

Do this and God will bless you with riches, no one can measure.

 

Under the compassionate shadow of Almighty God,

We are safe and secure from the searing heat of sin.

Seek ye first for the Kingdom of Heaven, then surely

Only good will come your way, and true living will begin.

A Poem of Brilliance

5be3fd73f9e177853e85a7ce5dbeaa00 Brilliance©

That which is of benevolent thought will surely be revealed.
From the power of the mind one can be great in any field.
Proceed to glory, be steadfast and positive no matter what and it will manifest.
Awaken that slumbering power within and put it to the test.

Unleash that dormant potential and put those thoughts into action.
The vibrations of a thought alone will set in motion the law of attraction.
Realize that you are part of the source of which all living waters flow.
The spirit is omnipotent, so as a candle in the dark, let your brilliance show.

Never underestimate the power of a compassionate word or a small act of caring.
Contribute freely and do not calculate any return but be gratified in sharing.
An honest compliment will go very far and may even turn a life around.
Most of all, a whisper of love is the greatest to be heard in all the realms of sound.

Meditation For Beginners – Meditate With Complete Peace!

The smartest thing is to attempt several alternate means in seeking to attain the many advantages of  meditation , in advance of selecting one which is best for you. While many individuals enjoy doing  meditation  with a type of exercise such as pilates, aerobics, or yoga, others prefer  meditation  by itself. Whichever you prefer, you should chose a method that gives you the most relaxation possible.

Through reconnecting your soul to the spiritual source, the principal ambition in meditating proves to be relaxing both  mind  and body. The  mind  is able to calm down, when the body is calm. This can literally help the body to improve in health. A second advantage to be gained through  meditation  centers on the fact that it is a method for permitting yourself to think clearly. Your  mind  simply becomes conditioned into a relaxed and calm state that carries forth in your day-to-day life, allowing you to better handle situations as they may arise. Of course, you need to make it a regular practice, and not just meditate on days you “think” something bad may happen. For those who meditate routinely, they will find that their troubling times minimize. Your problems will not be so enormous, and you will be capable of dealing with them when the arrive.

A third wonderful element of  meditation  lies in your ability to employ  meditation  to attain that spiritual place within your soul.  Meditation  is furthermore a means of Prayer, for those of you who believe in God, and it permits you to converse with the greater power in a calm and relaxed manner. Basically, if you are unsure of what God is trying to say, perhaps it’s time for ALL of us to quiet our  minds  and hearts and souls enough to TRULY LISTEN! Those of you who are  meditation  novices will discover that you will need to choose if you want to meditate after exercising, or if you would prefer to meditate alone, without exercise. You ought to begin with a yoga video or yoga class, if you prefer to meditate following exercise. Following most yoga sessions, there is typically a session for meditating.

You will have to first pick out a chant or mantra, if you only wish to meditate without doing it with exercise. More or less this is a chant which enables you to concentrate on your relaxation and  meditation . Fixing your eyes on a single area or mark on the wall is helpful, too. Looking into the flame of a candle is an especially wonderful technique to focus your attentions on your  meditation  goals. You must concentrate in such a manner that your  mind  clears when you meditate. The goal of meditating is to empty your  mind  of everything, not to conjure up images in your  mind , for a little while anyway. For any amount of time that you are able to think of nothing and relax, this signifies that you have been successful. It’s TRULY AMAZING how such a simple act, when performed effectively and consistently, will help you to maintain this  peace  and clarity in ALL your daily activities!

Why Meditation is Easier Than You Think – Four Tips to Help You Reach Peace of Mind

 Meditation  is one of the greatest gifts you can give to yourself. It promotes clarity,  peace   of   mind , and relieves stress. For some however,  meditation  can be stress inducing by itself. That is why most people seem to think it lacks any benefit. Quieting the  mind  is no easy task, but with practice it is obtainable.

My first recommendation when getting started with  meditation  is to not treat it as a technique. This may seem contradictory at first, but it’s very important in understanding how it helps to quiet the  mind . As humans, we are compelled and drawn towards “figuring things out”. Have you ever noticed how children constantly ask why? It’s because they want to understand whatever it is they are analyzing. If you attempt to create a technique to meditate, it may hinder you. This is especially true of those with analytical  minds . When you label  meditation  as a set in stone technique it becomes more of an obligation, rather than a state of being.

My second recommendation is to not stress over  meditation . As I said before when you treat something as a technique, there is always a potential for something to go wrong. If you don’t stress over  meditation  and allow whatever happens to happen, you will derive far greater benefits than an individual who has a main focus of “getting it perfect”. It may seem counter intuitive, but  meditation  is the absence of thought. One can not reach a state of  peace  if the  mind  is constantly debating whether or not the  meditation  is going well.

My third recommendation has to do with setting time aside for  meditation . Many people fall into the trap of scheduling  meditation  and making it mandatory to do at least an hour of meditating. Do not fall into this trap. Yes, Buddhist monks meditate for very long periods of time, but their environment is conducive to the goal they are attempting to achieve. Do not make  meditation  an obligation; otherwise you will fall into habit and routine. It becomes one more stress inducing thing that you feel you have to do, and this mindset will not be in agreement with the idea behind  meditation .

My fourth recommendation is this, be creative.  Meditation  does not have to be in the stereotypical lotus position, eyes closed, and mantra humming style. If it works, fantastic, but if it doesn’t don’t beat yourself up. I feel  meditation  is whatever brings you to higher states of awareness and promotes general well being. Take drawing or art for example, that state one achieves where ideas seem to flow freely from  mind  to paper could be described as active  meditation . Another example is meditating on nature. Sit outside one day and just focus on your environment, notice every minute detail, but don’t analyze it, just perceive it as best you can through all your senses. Again do not get caught up in the whys and hows of  meditation , instead find your own way.

 Meditation  is what one makes of it. If it is seen as a chore, then that is what it will be. If it is seen as a chance to quiet the  mind  and achieve happiness, then that is what it will be. Your perception of  meditation  is what creates your experience.  Meditation  is a chance to discover oneself and become aware. Find your own path and learn through experience. The greatest pleasure we can ever have in life is knowing who we are and what we stand for.

Peace of Mind – An Organic Meditation

Find a beautiful place, somewhere safe but awesome, like at the lake edge perched on a rock and I just sit there. Repeat the mantra, “I want nothing, I need nothing, and therefore I have everything.”

I might watch a bird or a fish, or a frog going about it’s life and automatically I am empty.

Do not close your eyes during  meditation , this is not  meditation , it is relaxation. Observe with all your senses. Eyes, ears, nose, taste, feeling. Do not move a muscle or become obsessed with thinking. Let thoughts be like the clouds let them come and let them go. Just listen, observe, smell, taste and feel.

To be clear, you cannot meditate.

All you can do is to put yourself in a place where  meditation  might happen. By sitting still and observing your senses, you increase the probability of  meditation  happening by 99%. If your  mind  is full of thoughts that are repetitive and worry based, then, plant another thought in your mind to replace them.

For example: you might say over and over, thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. Or, Om, om, om, om, om. Really if the sound is positive to your mind it is a good mantra.

So, your mind will think, it can’t stop. At first you may have to plant thoughts into your mind to push out the worry and keep you focussed. But eventually, you will learn to just connect with a rock or a tree and feel your thoughts focus on that object exclusively.
