Use waiting time for saying your affirmations

Part of the Hippocratic oath that each physician has to say before becoming a doctor is, “First do no harm.” Some people swear blind on the positive effect of affirmations. I use them a huge amount.  I know that when repeating a short positive phrase I’ll not be able to keep my mind on any […]

Flexibility leads to success

As I’m transferring the old posts to here, I arrived at a place where there are a few very short posts. I could transfer each one individually. This would take quite a long time as i would add a lot of new things to ideas which I do not have a lot of things to […]

Use downtime in a positive way

I have not been writing as much as I would like recently because I’m doing some software engineering projects and I have been busy. The day before yesterday I went out to run some errands and potentially buy a more powerful computer for my project. The very first traffic light was red and it took […]

I’m currently moving some old articles from the main web site to the blog. Here are some affirmations to help us accept what is: I relax and let go and wonderful things come to me. Today I […]

The above is from a book called Affirmations by Stuart Wilde. Another from the same book: I grant myself forgiveness and complete absolution. and I […]

Affirmations for forgiveness

This is another of those old posts I’m porting to the blog. It has a great affirmation for forgiveness: The Christ in me forgives the Christ in you. The above affirmation comes from Catherine Ponder. I used this affirmation at a time when a business partner had embezzled much from me and I was full […]
