about who you are.
Thirty plus One
ways to remember who you truly are
ways to Love yourself
ways to be your Essence
My daughter gave me an empty journal for Mother’s Day, asking that I leave
her a legacy of affirmations. She requested that I spend the rest of my life
writing down things that I see and know so that when I die she can have the book
back for her reflection during that part of her life when she will have to live
without me next to her. This is my first response and I dedicate it to my
wonderful daughter, Bridgit.
A very important part of this book is to present the idea of focusing on your heart
chakra as a visualization to come to your Center and release pain. Your heart
center is the way back to your whole Self. Most of us have closed down our hearts
to some degree as children, in order to survive the pain brought on by the lack of
love that we experienced in our family environment. I mean no blame, but state
this as a reflection of the planet’s state of evolution. Now is the time to exercise
the heart muscle - to allow the heart to spin open again, to relieve our sorrow.
As you read this book, I ask that you focus on your heart while reading each
day’s message. Meditate on the message energetically, by putting your atten-
tion on your heart. Place your hand right over the center of your chest. See
your heart as an ever-opening, spinning, wheel of rainbow light, throwing off
sparks of Love.
Use the daily reading to start a meditation of at least 10 minutes a day - moving
up to 45 as that length becomes more comfortable. Keep your own journal of
thoughts that arise as you meditate on the messages.
Have Love and Compassion towards yourself. Breathe in the beauty of who you
are, and really know that you are a precious being. Realize that there is no
greater love available to you today than what you give to yourself. This is the
love that is inspired through your connection to the Great Mystery, the One
The greatest gift we can give to anyone else - is allowing them to see our Love
towards ourselves. Only through loving ourselves can we feel love and com-
passion for someone else.
Watch for something being “off” in your world - that’s a clue to how well you are
loving yourself. Use the world as a mirror to discover how you are living your
life. Be more interested in discovering more about yourself, than in trying to
change others. The reason someone else bothers you is because they remind you
in some way of yourself. Treat your projections of others as a source of insight
that reveals a hidden part of yourself. And please don’t judge yourself,
remember you are discovering your real self through this process.
As you wake up this morning, give thanks that you are still alive and the
opportunity to live another day. Another day to love those closest to you.
Another day to try to understand what this strange mystery of Life is all about.
Prepare to let this be the day that you have more clarity than ever before - let
this be the day of seeing clearly who you really are and understanding your
life’s purpose. Begin with the reality that you are a hologram of the Divine,
instilled with the essence of the Great One. In a hologram each small piece of the
whole is identical to the essence of the larger piece. You are the physical
appearance of the Divine!
Go forth with an open heart. Expecting this to be the most miraculous day of
your life. Know that whatever and whoever comes into your life today is meant
to be there for your growth and happiness. The world is created by our
intentions, by our desires - so expect the best to come to you.
Today allow yourself to accept every sorrow - every painful wound event in your
life. Really go into, and stay with the feelings that arise. Don’t run away - focus
on your heart and let it soften - breathe through your heart. When these feelings
have abated (it could take up to 1/2 hour), allow yourself to see past the pain
into the brilliance which has drawn this to you in order to grow into a more
complete human being.
Today watch for a clue on how to bring your Divine Self and your ego self
together. There is no longer a need to have any separation between them - we
are all One. Any sorrow that you have been carrying for years can now be
Breathe in Light - golden, shimmering Light. Deep breaths of stillness that fill
your Being with peacefulness and love. Stay with this as long as possible. Long,
slow breaths through your heart can get you through any difficult situation.
Know that all is well with the world today. No matter how it may seem. Begin
with yourself and by the end of the day know that all is well with everyone
else you meet. Life is unfolding as it is meant to unfold. Every time you see
something wrong with the world, bring your attention back to the mantra -
“all is well” - because all is One and the One is perfection. You may notice
that others have a veil over their Light, but still continue to see everyone in
their wholeness. This allows them to respond with their Light faster and easier.
See yourself as perfect. YES!! That thought may be quite difficult at first.
But, nevertheless, it is true. You are perfection and once you open to that
wisdom, you will see every event in your life as being right on purpose. You
will not be able to doubt any action you take once you surrender and allow your
perfection to Be. Your life will flow without interference from your ego. Life
can be lived in this state.
Love yourself and all else will follow. All your dreams will fall into place when
Love is your primary concern. Make a conscious choice to choose Love. Let that
be your foremost intention today. Every time you want to run away - choose
Love instead. Stay with your fear until you feel your heart soften and open
again. Be not afraid to err on the side of Love, you have nothing to lose except
Your Inner Child
The inner child is to be loved, honored and indulged. Write a note asking
“What do you want from me?” to your inner child, using your dominant hand.
Let the answer come by writing with your opposite hand. Try giving her any-
thing that she wants. This is the part of ourselves that has been ignored for
years, hidden since we closed down our hearts in order to be safe. But of course,
it didn’t work - because there is no safety to be found in a closed heart.
Promise that you will be the child’s most loving parent. Shower her with your
Love. Be your own Fairy Godmother!
Develop a forgiving nature, particularly towards yourself. A forgiving
consciousness is healing and your judgments of yourself can end. Once you are
giving your inner child everything it needs, forgiveness becomes easier. When
you have all the love you need, there is no longer anything to be gained by with-
holding love from others. Love is “for giving”.
I am One with the universe
I am an electrical impulse of the Divine mind
I am complete and unabridged
I am now pulling together all part of my biggest Self
I want to listen and hear all my body’s messages. It is my
intention to be guided by inner messages and imagery
I now stand tall, caring not to judge myself or others
I am blazing glory. Like a comet spinning thru space,
full of Light. There is no greater love than I feel now
I am the Divine Love and Light of the Universe
I have a new place, it is beyond right and wrong
it is beyond this and that
The Way now is vast, like no other I’ve known
it will be hard to explain, but easy to live
I know my true nature only on this path
simplicity is it’s name
Watch The Energy
If you are having a problem with someone or something, pay no attention to
the words being spoken, because this is a distraction from the real issue. Instead
watch the energy, feel your feelings and listen for the unspoken pain or fear - try
to undercut the distraction of the supposed problem and get to the deeper issues.
The issue is about you! Because its happening in your life.
Watch for subliminal messages you give to yourself throughout the day. What
daydreams are you in now? What song is running through your head? What old
memory has come up to be healed now? Who did you just think of? These are the
messages from the unconscious that want attention now. Who telephoned in the
middle of some event or conversation? What reflection is your family of
yourself? Use life as a metaphor to allow your higher Self to communicate with
you. Don’t forget you are in charge of your own movie.
“Godisnowhere” I don’t know who first wrote this, but its a perfect example of
how we choose to interpret what we see.
God is no where or God is now here
In our life’s movie, we make a choice every minute about what we want our life
to be. What is your choice today? Its your life, what outcome do you want?
Happiness or pain? It is your task to find the perfection and beauty in your life.
Struggle is not necessary now. You’ve chosen struggle in the past because you
didn’t realize you were writing your own script.
Can you stay awake when confronted with the strong family lineage that
denies the greater Self? Can you stay awake, without fear when meeting you old
family situations of conditional, rather than unconditional, love? Can you
remember today who you are? Of course you can!
Use nature to remember. Walk in ancient trees, on high mountains, beside
moving water, look up to the clouds and stars and feel the wind - this is returning
home to the Great Mother. Bring energy up through your feet and into your
hands, where you can send it out to others. Nature provides the fuel for the
distribution of the healing force.
DAY TWENTY ONE
Quality of Life
Live a life of quality. Live as if today is the first day of the last six months of your
life. What do you really want to do today? Where do you really want to live?
With whom? Is your job fulfilling? Are you loving yourself as much as you
want? Do you have unfinished business with friends and loved ones?
DAY TWENTY TWO
Consider yourself whole and healed....
Don’t worry about judgments of yourself or others, turn the “blind eye”. Image
the perfection, that you truly are, unfolding daily before your very eyes.
Imaging is one of the first steps in manifestation. It is important to nurture
positive images within yourself.
DAY TWENTY THREE
Be Not Afraid
You can’t be afraid and loving at the same time. Fear closes down the loving
heart, there can be no coexistence. Its always your choice. Remember, heal
fear energetically by focusing on your heart, see it as an ever opening, spinning
wheel of rainbow Light, throwing off sparks of Love. Focus on this area for 20
minutes each time you fall out of Love with yourself or another. Just
put your awareness on the heart chakra, maybe sing it a little song...like the one
I learned in Sunday School - “I’ve got the Joy, Joy, Joy, Joy down in my heart.”
When I sing this song, I feel a lightness start to bubble up in my heart area and I
realize that I can turn my fear over to the Divine Mother. I know that i am
loved and cared for. I know that all is well.
DAY TWENTY FOUR
Be a Generator
Imagine yourself to be a generator, with Love and Light pouring into the top of
your head and pumping out through your heart. Feel the space around you
(your aura) pulsating with the energy, electricity and magnetism of Love. This
can be a mission in life, to generate Love unto the Earth!! As you walk around
during the day your aura will activate the Love principle in others. You can
ignite Love wherever you are, if you remember that Love is pouring out of your
heart. Love is activated by your KNOWING it to BE.
DAY TWENTY FIVE
Just make the contact! With your Higher Self ! Make that your goal today!
Contact ! “All things come to those who wait.” These were my mother’s words to
me on her 80th birthday. Settle deeply into the presence of the Great One, feel
the peacefulness and happiness that is your natural state.
DAY TWENTY SIX
If you can continue to remember
there will grace in your life
there will be solutions to your questions
there will be Love in your heart and Light in your eyes.
DAY TWENTY SEVEN
Activate the Presence
Presence abides within us at all times. Leaving fear behind and opening to
Love activates this Presence to manifest and shine out through our eyes. Our
responsibility is to activate the Presence by remembering that Essence is here
within us at all times.
DAY TWENTY EIGHT
Follow your Nose
Ask yourself repeatedly “What do I want to do now?” And then pay attention
and do it!
Be willing to change every plan you have
in order to honor your truth
in order to do the next thing
in order to go where your nose want to lead you
Be willing to follow you Self.
DAY TWENTY NINE
Once you are soul-infused, you will be acting as a protective devise for the rest of
society. Your realization of the presence forms a protective net for those just
beginning to come to realization. This is the next task - to hold steady the
remembrance. Let all self doubt end with the remembrance.
Who We Are
We come forth into the Light, remembering again who we are. We draw down
the wisdom and Love that are always present within us. Sometimes hidden by
the veil of daily forgetfulness but never misplaced - always right there for us -
unconditional wisdom and love. This is we are.
DAY THIRTY ONE
Don’t believe a word in this book - write your own words! You know more about
your own truth than I do! Just listen to your inner voice and write down the
