Re: [Meditation Society of America] Re: Affirmations
- Loved your message Wade. Your aspirations are mine as well.
I practice focusing my attention on what is right and true and good and complete, rather than what is lacking, what's wrong, the flaws, etc. I know that my life is an outward manifestation of my thoughts. Good thoughts, good life. Shitty thoughts, shitty life. Thoughts are things that we constantly create. Each thought, in way, is a prayer. I had to ask myself, what am creating or praying for today? I want my thoughts to be good thoughts. Thoughts of abundance, love, hope, and joy. Thoughts of appreciation and gratitude. I have an attitude of gratitude today focusing not just on the gifts of God, but the Giver behind the gifts.
Here are some favorite affirmations:
- I see God in everyone because God is all I see.
- Everything is working out for my highest good.
- All my ways are pleasant ways, and all my paths are peace.
- In quietness and confidence shall be my peace.
- God loves me.
- I relax and cast aside all mental burdens and allow God to express through me his perfect love, peace, and wisdom.

I too am new here and very glad to be. My name is Wade.I am 60 years old and disabled.So I choose to spend my golden years changing the way I think, what I think about and how I think about them.I am using meditation affirmations and guided hypnosis.The rest of my life is going to be spent on personal Growth. My current affirmations are as follows: Change Your Thoughts, and change your life.I am transformed by the renewing of my mind.I live a life of gratitude.My attitude determines my altitude.Personal growth and changes are easy,when I have a positive attitude.I use my mind's latent abilities (affirmations planted in the subconscious mind) for visualizing positive out comes.I keep my mind occupied with positive intent,focused on only the good.I avoid negative words,thoughts and accompanying emotions like the plague.My positive thoughts manifests my experience.In everything,I apply the law of gratitude.
Every day I become better and better in every way.
I am now open to receive the good that God has for me

- Hey Patrick,You and I have just started using affirmations.I am curious to know if you are feeling excited about employing affirmations as I am,it is almost like magic..I find it absolutely amazing how well it is working for me.Especially about the amount of negative thoughts we were unconsciously using before we began an awareness of our guarded positive thoughts.My wife has noticed positive changes that I have made in just two months of using positive affirmations.So much so that she is now using affirmations also.Wade Whittaker
- Jack,Thank you for welcoming me to the group ........You are so right about , "........focusing not just on the gifts of God, but the Giver behind the gifts." Thank you for reminding me of this very important POINT. It is from God that sends the giver of the gifts and is far more important than the gift itself, Of whom I am to love as myself.And I do so unconditionally.For everyone that I meet,I feel that they have something that I can learn from them,even if there is no other gift involved.The gift may be the lesson I learn from the person I have just met.The circumstance could be that I am meeting this person so that together we both may learn something that we both need to know.Wade Whittaker
