"H" stands for high self.
Today, I will pray to be new again. This prayer is about releasing confusion. Every day, we must find some way to our spiritual clarity. Recite the prayer below to your own needs by specifically naming what you’re confused about. Is it how to trust? Is it how to be understood and heard by others? Is it the inability to make a choice when more than one direction attracts you? Or do there seem to be no choices at all? Asking for clarity opens a way to everything spirit wants to bring you. Without clarity, you won’t be able to notice or receive its messages. So let’s start.
God in spirit, I’m in a fog today. Give me clarity in mind and heart. Release me from my confusion which is born of the past. Let me see everything as if, for the first time. Shower unknown blessings upon me and surprise me with joy. Let me be renewed in your way. Let me renewed in your ways. Amen.

What do I want? What do I want? What do I want? What do I want? What do I want? What do I want? Don’t seek the answers at this moment. Just ask the questions. Ask and you shall receive. Live with this question. Move with this question. What do I want? And soon, you’d be moving into the answers. The answers will come to you as situations, as circumstances, events, relationships, insights, and imagination.
JUDGE NOT TODAY
"J" stands for "judge not today". Judgment creates turbulence in our mind. And when there is turbulence in our mind, then it interferes with the creativity of our soul. Creativity and judgment don’t go together. Judgment also means letting go of the need to classify things, non judgment to call them either right or wrong, to label, to define, to describe, to evaluate, to analyze. Let go today. Judge not today. Today, I win on judgment. This affirmation about releasing to be judgmental. Just make this your lesson today: Consider what happens when you judge someone. it makes another person wrong. Someone else is wrong to feel in a certain way, to look a certain way, to hold certain opinions. Judgment immediately creates separation. Any person who’s wrong then becomes them. The need to judge arises from the need to be isolated. This is the ego’s form of defense. But at the same time, you’re pulling away from your true self. The same walls that keep other people away also shut off the flow of spirit. When you learn not to judge, you are basically saying I’m willing to let anything in without deciding first whether it is good or bad. in the practice of openness, you will be inviting your soul to be intimate with you. So, put your attention in your heart right now, and just repeat to yourself: Today, I will judge nothing that occurs. Today, I will judge nothing that occurs. Today, I will judge nothing that occurs. And by letting go of my judgments today, I will experience silence in my mind. By shedding the burden of judgment today, I will experience silence in my mind. And in this silence, I will find the ecstatic impulse which is also the evolutionary impulse of the universe. And I will align myself with the ecstatic evolutionary impulse of the universe by letting go of all my judgments. Today, I will not classify. I will not label. I will not define. I will not describe. I will not evaluate. I will not analyze. Today, I will shed the burden of judgment.

I will express loving kindness in my thoughts, in my feelings, in my speech, and in my actions. Today, I will look at the world through the eyes of kindness.

I will be aware of my perceptions and see they arise and subside. I will be aware of my environment – it arises and subsides. Today, I will look at the world through the eyes of kindness just as a wave is a water before it arises and a wave is also water after it subsides. I will realize that I too am pure consciousness, pure love, pure potential. I will be mindful of my essential nature and by being mindful of my essential nature, as the consciousness in which all arises and subsides. I will see that this consciousness which is behind my thoughts, behind my perceptions is the same consciousness behind everyone’s thoughts and perceptions and the same consciousness behind all the intelligent activity of the universe.

As the Upanishads say “It is not for the sake of the beloved that I feel loved. But for the sake of the self.” Today, I will put my attention on the self and use this affirmation to crystallize all those that have come before. I will allow the words to lead me into a state of meditative peace. I will let the words enter my heart and soothe it with my reassurance. I will remind myself, in my garden the rose opened. But I was too much in a hurry and passed it by. Love remembered me and said, “I will make a rose bloom in your heart.” Today I will remind myself that my body is the garden of my soul. Today, I will renew myself by letting go of all expectations. Today, I will consider the priorities in my life. Today, I will know that love is the only reality.

Today, I offer my thoughts to the service of spirit. I will use my thoughts wisely and respect their power. This affirmation is also about taking responsibility. After saying this affirmation, end by sitting still and consciously bringing everyone you know into your awareness. See them coming together in a town square. Imagine that you are the leader of this gathering. With the power to hurt or benefit anyone you wish. Now look over all the faces gazing up at you and say “I will use my power wisely.” In this promise, you acknowledge your role in everyone’s healing. Today, I offer my thoughts to the service of spirit. In stillness, I find my true self. Remember, this affirmation is about awareness. As you go about your day, be mindful of your awareness. Sometimes, it will be restless and active. This usually occurs when outside events press in asking for reactions. But other times, your awareness will be still within itself. You will watch instead of act. You will become the ever-present witnessing awareness. You will find yourself being the observer. And from the perspective of your soul, that is who you really are. Activity comes and goes. But the observer is steady and ever present. As you begin to identify with the observer, you will become less attached to things that change. The unchanging is truly who you are. Repeat to yourself: In stillness, I find my true self. In stillness, I find my true self. In stillness, I find my true self. Today, I offer my thoughts to the service of spirit. I will use my thoughts wisely and respect their power.
"N" stands for nurturing. In the words of Jesus Christ: “Love others as well as you love yourself.” Why? Because the other is our self. Every situation, every circumstance, every event, every relationship is a mirror of what’s going on inside ourselves. So, let us begin to see the world as a mirror. Today’s affirmation is literally to nurture ourselves by nurturing the world. Today, I will nurture the world and all my relationships with attention, affection, appreciation, tenderness, beauty and love. Today, I will pay attention. Attention means I will listen. I will listen today without having the need to respond. I will listen with the eyes of the flesh. I will listen with the eyes of the mind. I will listen with the eyes of the heart. I will listen with the eyes of the soul. Today, I will pay attention. Today, I will also practice affection. I will lovingly show my nurturing to others through tender touch, through hugs, through body language, through eye movements. Today, I will express my affection.

"O" stands for letting go of opposition. Which is also the love least resistance. Do less and accomplish more. And ultimately, do nothing and accomplish everything. So put your attention in your heart, listen and repeat. When I feel opposition, I will not oppose it in return. Today, I will oppose nothing that occurs. I will resist nothing. In the words of Jesus Christ: “I will resist not evil.” Evil is a projection of our shadows. By embracing our own shadows and bringing the light of awareness to them, and forgiving them, I will diminish the evil in the world. So remember, letting go of opposition is about nonresistance. It’s about the biblical injunction to turn the other cheek. But it makes little sense to your ego. When your ego feels pushed, the eye inside you wants to push back. When it is harmed, it wants to lash out against the attacker. In this way, the cycle of attack and defense never ends. The soul’s approach is not to oppose which means not defending your position or your point of view when the situation defies your expectations. Let the opposition pass, either by waiting or leaving or surrendering to the obstacle. The essence of this strategy is to put an end to struggle and conflict by allowing the spirit to find its own way to the solution. You’re not required to be passive, however. You will only find discovery when you refuse to oppose. In many cases, a solution will appear as if magically, which is a sign that you’re learning to act from the level of your soul. So let’s repeat the affirmation. Today, when I feel opposition, I will not oppose in return. Today, I will oppose nothing that occurs. I will resist nothing. In the words of Jesus Christ: “I will resist not evil.” Today, I will oppose nothing that occurs.
"P" stands for presence. Today, I will find my soul here and now. This affirmation is about the present moment. Make this your promise for today. Try to be as present as you can and when you become aware that you wandered from the present moment, ask to be brought back. The mind easily slips out of the now. We fantasize about the future. We reminisce about the past. When we feel distressed, we anticipate the pain to come or remember the pain that went before. Each detour takes us out of the present moment. Yet, the here and now is the only meeting place where you will find your soul. So, let’s begin. Today, I will not dwell on the past or the future. I will realize I have no need of either the past or the future when I step fully into the present. Today, I will release all ghost from my past so I may vanquish all else. I will no longer hold on to pain until it becomes anger. Today, I will no longer hold on to pleasure before it becomes an addiction. I will not anticipate pain or pleasure in the future to relieve my anxiety. The present is the home of my being. Past and future are only the dreams of whom I was, of what I might become. Today, I will release the past and its burden of wounded dreams.
"Q" stands for question. Today, I will peacefully witness with my unanswered questions. Today, I will have patience with everything that remains unsolved in my heart. Today, I will love the questions themselves like locked rooms and like books written in a foreign language. Today, I will not look for the answers because even if they were given to me, I will not know their meaning. Today, I will realize that I need to experience everything. That at present, I need to live the question. I will be aware of the question and very gradually, without even noticing it, I will find myself experiencing the answer. Maybe not today, maybe when I really need the answer.
"R" stands for relationship. Today, I will put my attention to inner beingness. In the words of lord Buddha: “Nothing exists by itself. All things are interrelated.” He said that we are inter-beings that inter-arise in the inter-isness. Today, I will put my attention on the interrelatedness of all that exists. Today, I will understand the true meaning of relationship because it is through relationship that everything exists. Today, I will realize that we are all a web of relationships. That the whole universe conspires to create every event in our lives. Today, I will look at a beautiful flower, and I will see rainbows and sunshine and earth and water and the wind and the infinite void and the whole history of the universe pretending to be a flower. Today, I will look at myself and experience the whole universe within me, pretending to be a person. Through the web of relationships, I will see my inner beingness. Today, I will pay attention to relationship.
"S" stands for self-referral. When returning to myself, I will set myself free. Every time I feel overshadowed by any experience, I will remind myself that I;m not the scenery, but the seer.

Because the experiences is beyond space, time, and causality. By returning to myself, I would set myself free. I will see myself as the seer in the midst of the changing scenery. This seer in the words of the Baba Gita: “Water cannot wet, Wind cannot make it dry, and fire cannot burn. Weapons cannot shattered. it is not without beginning and without end.” By being in touch with the non-changing seer in the midst of the changing scenery, I will get in touch with the timeless being. In the midst of the timebound becoming, by returning to myself, I will set myself free. I will remain the timeless being in the midst of timebound becoming. By returning to myself, I will set myself free.
"T" is for trust. Today, I will trust the unknown. The known is the prison of the past. Today, I will relinquish the known. Today, I will step into the unknown and in every moment, I will lay my trust in the trust in the field of infinite possibilities. By trusting the unknown, I will find creativity, imagination, inspiration, intuition, insight, and conscious choice making. Today, I will step into the unknown. Today, I will relinquish the known. I will realize that the known is the prison of my past conditioning. By stepping into the unknown in every moment, I will enter the field of infinite possibilities. Today, I will trust the unknown and enter the field of infinite possibilities.
"U" stands for understanding that the universe exists within me. Today, I will understand that I’m part of the universe and that the universe exists within me. I will understand that every perspective arises from a context. When I feel a conflict in any situation or relationship, I will examine my feelings from my own perspective but also from the perspective of others and from the perspective of the neutral observer. Through this understanding, I will have a context that will allow me to be free. Today, I will understand that my soul sees every experience through new eyes. Today, I will understand that everyone is doing the best they can from their level of awareness. Today, I will remind myself that the universe exists within me. As the ancient Saegis says “I’m not in the world, the world is in me. I’m not in the body, the body is in me. I’m not in the mind, the mind is in me.” The body, the mind, the world, they happen to me as I curve back within myself and create again and again.

Today, I will wake up to a new existence and I will look at the world as if for the first time. Today, I will give myself permission to apply new feelings of appreciation to a flower, to a curtain filtering in the breeze, to a child’s game, to a tree grazing the roadside. Today, I will not take anything for granted. I will see everything anew. Today, I will see one thing as if for the first time.
"W" stands for wisdom. Today, I will see all of the nature expressing itself through me. Wisdom is a knowledge that nurtures the web of life, the chain of being, the ecosystem. I will realize that I am part of the ecosystem. Today, I will trust my body with cells and organization and its DNA as part of the entire ecosystem. Today, I will see all of the nature expressing itself through me. I will see that I’m not an outsider but a web of relationships in the mind of God. Today, I will see all of the nature expressing itself through me. Knowing this, I will see the world as my extended body. Today, I will look at trees as my lungs. I will look at rivers and waters as my circulation. I will see the earth as my body and the air as my breathe. I will see the world through the eyes of wisdom. And know that I have a personal body and a universal body. And they are both equally mine. Today, I will see all of the nature expressing itself through me. Today, I will look at the world through the eyes of wisdom.
"X" stands for x-factor. Today, I will let go of all that I know. Today, I will factor in the x-factor. The x-factor is the unknown factor. It is what we do not know and also what we do not know that we do not know. Today, I will let go of all that I know. Understanding that it is the x-factor that creativity reigns supreme. Today, I will align myself to the creator of the universe by factoring in the x factor.
