Affirmation – I am a positive person, always seeing the best in everyone, every action, and every energy on the planet.


“The greatest disease today is not cancer or tuberculosis, but rather the feeling of being unwanted, uncared for and deserted by everybody. The greatest evil is the lack of love and charity.”

~ Mother Teresa

In the past few months I have noticed an increasing number of people consumed by negative energies. They seem to feel that the world, the government, their boss, their family, their friends, their bodies and their minds have all turned against them. Sometimes there is a dread that the God energy has withdrawn from them.

More and more of our UCM ministers have been called to preach about “Positive Energy”, “How to Become a Positive Person”, and to remind folks to “…see the glass half full”. It is a challenge to stay grounded and centered, and not become depressed. It feels like everything is falling apart around you, the earth is going through such massive and instantaneous changes, so many people are suffering fear, loss, and, death. Please take a moment to read the following – and put it into action! Remember, you are a perfect person on the planet!

When you find yourself beginning to feel overwhelmed by negativity, you can always choose to break the pattern. Stop whatever you are doing, and for three of four minutes focus your mind on thoughts of gratitude, acceptance and peacefulness.

Breathe deeply, and relax the muscles throughout your body. Reflect on how very fortunate you are to be alive and aware in this universe that’s overflowing with positive possibilities.

Give yourself a peaceful break. Give your spirit the opportunity of resetting to a more positive perspective, and it will.

In a few short moments, you can easily and naturally break free of any negative pattern in which you may have been caught. You’ll be vastly better positioned to effectively respond to whatever life sends your way.

Instead of acting out of anger or frustration, fear or anxiety, you’ll be able to choose your actions based on your own positive purpose. Instead of being caught up in the grip of negativity, you’ll be calmly and firmly in control.

When the negativity starts to get overwhelming, choose to interrupt it with a positive, peaceful break. You’ll find it can make a profound and positive difference. — Ralph Marston

You are so powerful when you stay positive and focused. Make a difference in the world – claim your divinity. You are a child of God! Together we all calmed Hurricane Rita – let’s all get together and do the same with Wilma as it threatens Florida and our Eastern Seaboard. Take a moment to visualize the storm, see and feel the wind speed decreasing from Category 4 to Category 1, NOW! Keep supporting the light-workers on the planet as we reduce this storm, calm the fires, decrease the magnitudes of the earthquakes and help eliminate hunger.

The following is a prayer from “The Four Agreements” by Don Miguel Ruiz:

Thank you, Creator of the Universe, for the gift of life you have given me.

Thank you for giving me everything that I have ever truly needed.

Thank you for the opportunity to experience this beautiful body and this wonderful mind. Thank you for living inside me with all your love, with your pure and boundless spirit, with your warm and radiant light.

Thank you for using my words, for using my eyes, for using my heart to share your love wherever I go. I love you just the way you are, and because I am your creation, I love myself just the way I am. Help me to keep the love and the peace in my heart and to make that love a new way of life, that I may live in love the rest of my life.

Amen

“When you get to your wits end, you’ll find God lives there.”

On a Lighter Note:

An Arrow can be shot only by pulling it back.
so, when Life is dragging you back with difficulties,
it means it’s going to Launch you into something great.
