“They” say it takes 21 days to develop a habit.
So I’ve decided to combine keeping my commitment to two important Winter 2009 promises to myself:
- deepen my connection with my own spiritual foundation.
- begin blogging, after a couple years of thinking about it!
For the next 21 days, I’m going to listen each morning to a sermon from one of my favorite spiritual mentors, Michael Beckwith. And, I’m also going to engage in one other spiritual activity each day. Then, I’m going to share my experiences with you!
Today, my spontaneous spiritual activity involved reading and living my own darn affirmative prayer:
Oh Great Spirit,
I affirm my ever-increasing awareness
of your omni-presence.
I appreciate you always at my side,
Working through my hands,
Speaking through my voice,
Loving through my heart.
I delight in you.
I delight through you.
I delight as you . . .
Okay, yes I am spiritually inspired!
Until tomorrow . . .

Brenda, I still use this prayer for myself frequently. It is such a simple, powerful reminder of my True Identity. “I delight as you, O Great Spirit.” YAY!!!
I love being able to look back to the beginning of your blogging, through years of posts, to now 5 years later. It is fun to see the threads of sameness, same messages, going deeper, taking some twists, but always the core of you and your strengths and what you have chosen to bring forth. If feels very encouraging. Thank you for sharing.
