Spiritual inspiration: My personal essence statement

A few months ago, I wrote a “guiding light” for me and how I serve the world. It has brought me so much comfort, always reassuring me about the essence of me and what I have to offer.

I’m sharing it with you now, so that if you feel inspired you may use my personal essence statement “template” for spiritual inspiration and write your own.

Here’s mine:

Ann’s essence statement

I am fully present with:

  • My Self
  • My beloved
  • Loved ones
  • Clients
  • Those I encounter
  • All of nature that calls to me

With my:

  • Love
  • Clarity
  • Generosity
  • Playfulness
  • Focus
  • Grounding
  • Beauty ways
  • Inspiration
  • Truth
  • Empowerment
  • and Strength.

I am present
to the energy
of each of us
and our combined energy;
where it’s flowing
and where it’s stagnant.

In each moment,
I discern
what’s called for
to more fully experience
and flow . . .

Now it’s your turn

To write yours, fill in the blanks:

I am fully present with:
(Fill in who and what you most love to be present with.)

With my:
(Fill in your best qualities.)

I am present to:
(Fill in the way(s) you love to engage and serve.)

In each moment:
(Fill in what you naturally do consistently that is almost always helpful to the situation.)

Have fun with this! And, after you write yours, do post it here to share with others . . .
