Affirmations for Grounding by Don Shuan
I exist in this present moment, worry free Everything is working out for my highest good, i’m exactly where i’m supposed to be I use every experience as a tool to assist me on my life journey, I know that the goal is not the destination, but the experience itself Obstacles are just lessons or tests, I do not lose. I live my life in love and joy, making decisions using my inner knowing, never out of fear. I believe in the wonder of spirit because I am evidence of faith in the unseen. I am creating my life every single day whether I know it or not, so I consciously create a reality that is favorable to me. The people I meet along my way are guides helping me to understand more about myself I do not rush the process because what's for me is for me and will always be for me By seeing God in myself, I am able to see God in oth hing I need will be provided to me when I need it. I allow myself the time to rest and rejuvenate- mind, body and soul. I am not my thoughts, I create my thoughts and my thoughts create the vibration and the vibration draws the experience. I decide when to use my emotion, not the behaviors or opinions of others, my feelings do not waver based on outside forces. I think and act with positive intention moment by moment and the world reflects love back to me I understand that the root of all is either love or fear and I wake up and choose love everyday: Love of self and love of others. Through love I am God, I am sovereign and I am free.
Don Shuan will win $75 thanks to our friends at BRAVO Pay and merch from our home team I Am Root Apparel. Thank you again to all of the contestants, voters, judges, and supporters.
