Mantra: I am receiving every good thing

Happy Monday! My mantra for June, is “I AM receiving every good thing.” Because I know that my thoughts become things and when my mind is set on all that is good for me, I will see it immediately in my life. To attract the things we want in life, we must transmit love and…

Mantra: I am love

Focus on the things you want in life, not the things you do not won’t. Why? Because thoughts become things. When we practice mindfulness we begin to recognize our thought patterns.

Mantra: I am grateful

I am grateful. Three words that have significant power and meaning. “I am grateful,” is my mantra for this month. After reflecting on my life and noticing that I complain more than I should, I felt that I should acknowledge the numerous reasons to be grateful. The most prominent reason to be grateful, is that we are human beings. As human beings, we have the ability to make choices, to use language, to feel, to eat – oh, how I enjoy eating good food – and many more unique qualities of being a human.

As Mark Nepo so eloquently states in The Book of Awakening, we are precious human beings, we are rare, and we are awake. Our consciousness could be inside an ant instead of inside a human body. Imagine how difficult that experience would be. Instead, we are conscious living souls inside a human body, and we must recognize this experience as a gift. Our lives are a gift, so why not live now? Nepo encourages us to ask what we need to know now, say what we feel now, and love what we love now. Life is short, we all know that. But, we do not always act as if we know the truth about our existence.
