Sparks of Insight“There is a Power and a Presence that surrounds and indwells me. It’s wisdom and love flow through me and my subconscious mind, washing it clear of all resistance to good. I feel the lightness and love fill me.”

Many times, you resist good because it doesn’t fit what you’d consciously want, feel you deserve, or are able to conceive. Recognizing the Presence of the Universe raises your consciousness above all those challenges. Since God, the Universe, is all good, and everywhere present, you’re telling your subconscious that anything blocking It doesn’t belong.

Sparks of InsightIt’s easy and natural to be angry when you’re inconvenienced, treated rudely or poorly by someone. Rather than giving in to your first impulse, try taking a mental step back and approaching it from a more spiritual direction. Imagine yourself in their situation, and ask how you would react. You might discover that, although it shouldn’t have happened, you would be in a bad mood, too. Respond with empathy and compassion, and see what happens. More than likely, they’ll moderate their actions. If they don’t, you’ll have gotten some understanding and taken the high road.

Sparks of Insight“There is nothing good nor bad, but thinking makes it so.” – Shakespeare

The Universe is all good, but the way you perceive circumstances labels them either good or bad. Then, once you’ve labeled them, the subconscious goes to work to make that true for you. It’s only doing what it thinks you want it to do. If you label something good, it will work to bring good about. If you label it bad, then it makes it a self-fulfilling prophecy. Even if something seems to be awful, create the mindset that something good will come from it. That gives the subconscious the direction to derive something that’s beneficial.

Sparks of Insight“I expect wonderful things to happen today. My attitude of expectancy opens doors for me. It releases the Power of the Universe that creates good.”

Expecting the best gives the subconscious direction to find and create the good that’s already available in potential from the Universe. Tuning into it is like turning the channel of your television. The channel you’re seeking is always broadcasting, you just need to find its signal.

Sparks of InsightTry changing the pronoun of your affirmation from “I” to “You” or “Your Name.” You respond differently when someone else encourages you. You feel believed in, validated, appreciated. In doing so, you actually become your own coach. The third person, “Your Name,” helps by being from some neutral party. It’s more objective and detached, therefore connects with the mind on a different level.

Sparks of Insight“Acceptance of what has happened is the first step to overcoming the consequences of any misfortune.” – William James

Resisting, denying or ignoring a reality just gives it more energy. Before anything can change, you have to know what needs to change. Accepting that it is so doesn’t mean that you’re giving in to it. All you’re doing is stating, “This is where I am now, and now I can change it.” The energy you were using to repress the situation can now be used to recreate the outcome.

Sparks of InsightThe past can’t be changed. But it doesn’t need to affect you any longer. Past experiences created beliefs that developed into attitudes. Attitudes formed into feelings and emotions which prompted certain choices based on them. Those responses then created your experience. You can change the original beliefs to be more self-supporting ones. You have the choice. Your future is shaped by the thoughts that you choose to entertain today.

Sparks of Insight“I now allow the mind of God to think differently about this problem. I am open to new perspectives and new ideas on how to solve it. I release any resistance to whatever needs to happen for the solution to be made plain.”

Many times we get into a rut when dealing with a problem. There doesn’t seem to be any solution, and our very belief about that blocks any possibility of resolution. But from the perspective of the Universe, there is no problem, there are only solutions.

Sparks of InsightI’ve heard people say that, although they once had close relationship with God, they feel a distance or complete absence of the Divine. They wonder why God has abandoned them. The Universe still indwells and surrounds them. What has happened is that they’ve changed their relationship with themselves or with God. They either have moved away from their connection, by feeling depressed or traumatized, or they have evolved and they need to update their relationship. No matter what, God hasn’t moved. It’s just that they have changed their perspective. If you’re feeling distant from your center, then you’re the one who has moved.

Sparks of Insight“Things turn out best for the people who make the best out of the way things turn out.” ~ Art Linkletter

This is a gentle way of saying “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” Successful people find opportunities in difficulties, and many times, these become their greatest achievements. Challenges abound, and are a way to make us grow and expand. When a challenge comes your way, make the best of it. In so doing, you’re giving your subconscious the direction to become more resourceful at attracting Universal good.
