Attitude of Gratitude - Day 30

Attitude of Gratitude - Day 28

I am flexible, fit and fabulous.
(This is another one of mine. Affirmations are great for keeping your mind - and perhaps your schedule - on your goals. Today I am re-starting my morning exercise routine, so this seems to be the appropriate time for sharing this affirmation. Flexible and fit - here I come. Fabulous-well gosh, I'm already there ;) )

Attitude of Gratitude - Day 27

I vibrate at a level of joy and bliss.

(Another one I wrote for myself. I must have been reading Deepak Chopra; it sounds like his influence.)

Attitude of Gratitude - Day 26

I collaborate with God to bring peace, joy and laughter into all of my experiences.

(This is an affirmation I wrote at a time when relationships around me were strained and I seemed caught in the middle. It seems to me I was reading James Martin's "A Jesuit Guide To (Almost) Everything". I highly recommend this book to anyone on a spiritual journey, whether you are Catholic or not. I'm not, but I certainly got a lot out of it.)

Attitude of Gratitude - Day 25

I strive for serenity in all situations.

Attitude of Gratitude - Day 24

I am filled with gratitude for all the blessings in my life.

(Catherine Ponder)

Happy Thanksgiving to all!

Attitude of Gratitude - Day 23

I am surrounded by people who love and support me.
(This sounds very Julia Cameron-esque, although it very easily could have come from Catherine Ponder, Florence Scovel Shinn, Shatki Gawain or Peggy McColl)
For those of you who have lost loved ones this year, know that I am thinking of you and sending you blessings of peace. I encourage you to remember to laugh in between the tears and to share stories that make you smile, especially during this holiday season.

Attitude of Gratitude - Day 22

I am abundantly inspired in all that I do.

(I think this is from Julia Cameron's The Artist's Way)

Attitude of Gratitude - Day 21

I am healthy, wealthy and wise.

(This tried and true affirmation has been around forever. I don't know who to credit.)

Attitude of Gratitude - Day 20

I am moving step by step toward a healthier, happier me.

(I'm pretty sure this is a Peggy McColl quote)

Attitude of Gratitude - Day 19

I now have a large steady, dependable, permanent financial income.

(Catherine Ponder - at least I'm pretty sure.)

This affirmation has seen me through some pretty bleak times. Can I get a Hallelujah? Can I get an Amen? (And yes, it's okay to keep singing.......)

Attitude of Gratitude - Day 18

I radiate success and I prosper wherever I turn.

(Not sure who to credit with this quote/affirmation. It is probably another Catherine Ponder one, but it could also be from Peggy McColl , Shatki Gawain or Florence Scovel Shinn.)

Attitude of Gratitude - Day 17

I give thanks for the immediate and complete payment of all financial obligations now, quickly, easily and in peace.

(Catherine Ponder)

Attitude of Gratitude - Day 16

The more I have, the more I have to give.

(I'm thinking this is a Catherine Ponder affirmation but it could have come from Florence Scovel Shinn. I've used these affirmations for years and y
ears, now I'm wishing I'd jotted down where they came from......)

Attitudes of Gratitude

This is the time of year that many of us think about all the blessings in our lives. I began studying what has been called "truth teachings" or "prosperity lessons" about 20 years ago. One of the key teachings is about having an attitude of gratitude. I am extremely grateful for the many truth teachers I've encountered over the years, either in person or through their writings. As far as truth teachings and techniques, I'm primarily attracted to affirmations. For the next 33 days, I'll be sharing some of the ones I use often. My hope is that these affirmations may inspire you to adapt an attitude of gratitude and to find affirmations which help you to keep your thoughts focused on the positive things in your life. 

The first 12 affirmations are based on the teachings of Charles Fillmore, and many of the affirmations come from the works of Catherine Ponder.

Day One:

Divine Faith, manifest thyself in me now. I have faith that all things are working together for good in my mind, body and life now.
