Every journey, every path, and every experience is different. But it is the desire to understand the world and ourselves that makes the distance from where we are to where we want to be worth traveling. In order to truly experience that fundamental aspect of ourself, the only direction that we can go is inward. Knowing and understanding your inner world comes with a sense of empowerment and peace that we all entitled to.
Unity uses “affirmative prayer.” Rather than begging or beseeching God, this method involves connecting with the spirit of God within and asserting positive beliefs about the desired outcome. Affirmative prayer is the same method of prayer Jesus taught when he said, “So I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours” (Mark 11:24).
Affirmations are a way to reset your thinking, a way to take conscious control of your thoughts. Consciously choosing words that will either help eliminate something from your life or help create something new in your life. “Affirmations are like seeds planted in soil. Poor soil, poor growth. Rich soil, abundant growth. The more you choose to think thoughts that make you feel good, the quicker the affirmations work.” ~ Louise Hay
