As yesterday I affirmed and accepted that Divine Presence not only resides in me, but IS me, today I affirm that the bounty and abundance of such a Presence is also my reality. Today’s reading reminded me that the more I affirm that my cup is running over with abundance, the more I will experience said conditions.
I realize that “thoughts become things” (Mike Dooley), and in order to live in a state of physical abundance, one must first embody a mental state of abundance. I have not always experienced ease with this idea. I have often experienced a mental state of not-enoughness and scarcity consciousness. This has been most challenging with regard to the acquisition of actual money. However, I have noticed shifts in all of the other areas of my life, by changing my mental state first, and everything else shifts to follow, so today, I choose to alter my mental state with regard to financial abundance, as well as all other forms of abundance, so as to experience life as one great big bounty.
Today, I affirm that my cup runs over with abundance of love, of joy, of fulfillment, of gratitude, and of financial prosperity. I affirm that my needs are all taken care of and that I am well supported. I affirm that I have more than enough love in my heart to spread to those whose hearts are in turmoil. I affirm that I am joyous and experience Life as a gift. I affirm that fulfillment is my natural state and I am satisfied with my work and my progress in this life. I affirm that I have all that I need financially and that I am as prosperous as necessary at each and every point in my life. Lastly, I affirm that gratitude is in my every out breath, in thanksgiving that my every in breath sustains me, that every life event awakens me, that every person in my life teaches me, and that all there is exists to open me up to the Truth of Love that I AM.
I give thanks for I all I AM, all I have, and all there is to come – with this, I let it be so, and so it is!
“Gratefully, I accept of the Divine Love and Givingness and gladly extend them to everyone I meet. I am made whole with the Wholeness of the Spirit. Gently, but with complete certainty, I am guided into right action and successful accomplishment of all good desires. This I accept. This I experience.” – Ernest Holmes, 365 Science of Mind

Today’s reading reminded me that it’s all well and good to sit here and SPEAK the words that I am One with All There Is, and that the Divine lives in my heart, that I Am Love, and that the Presence of All that is Eternal is within me… but that it’s not in the saying it that has any power, it is in the actual acceptance and belief of these words, where the gift of Divine Presence exerts itself.
In the past, I have often wavered back and forth and up and down in my acceptance and acknowledgement of this fact that I AM (and everyone else is) a magnificent and powerful spirit embodying this human form, brought to Earth to act as one facet of the many faces of Love that the Divine shows up as. I have wavered in my acceptance of knowing that my every single act is guided by an underground knowing of my true path of service. I have had doubts, I have had disbeliefs, I have placed limitations upon myself that would not be had if I truly accepted myself as a face of Spirit made manifest into human form.
Today, and tomorrow, and the next day, I choose and will continue to choose to reaffirm my acceptance that I am a spiritual being having a human experience, and that the foundation of my essence is that of the Divine Itself, being made manifest into human form. I choose to affirm that I CAN hear my path calling, and I CAN visualize the steps I will make TODAY, I CAN do all that I have been placed within this lifetime to do, and I CAN serve in the highest, most expansive way possible to open the hearts of humankind to the Divine Love we are all here to come to know as our essence. I CAN because the only limitations placed upon me are the ones I place upon myself… and today, I CHOOSE to release those limitations in favor of opening my heart to the acceptance that I am a consciously powerful embodiment of Divine Love in human form.
I give thanks for this call to reaffirm my acceptance of this fact, and I let it be so, and so it is!
“I know there is a Presence that came with me when I entered this life, and I know that this same Presence will go with me when I leave this physical form, for It is the Presence of eternal Life, the Life that cannot die. And so I have no fear of the past, the present, or the future, but I am living today as though [the Divine] really were over all and through all. I feel this Presence as life, love, and goodness, and experience Its action as power and certainty. It is with me today, making my life whole and complete.” – Ernest Holmes, 365 Science of Mind

In today’s reading, I am reminded that there is always an active creative Spirit in my every moment’s affairs. Every situation I find myself in, every conversation I have, every feeling that comes over me - comes in the name of awakening to the Oneness that I am a part of. Each creative act that enters my experience serves the purpose of my opening to the Divine Love that resides within the core of me.
I recognize this Divine Love, this Presence within my core after certain experiences, the wonderful ones, but especially the tough ones, if I keep in mind the overall purpose of this existence is to open up to this Love. I watch myself, in challenging moments, spiral into self-deprecation or self-doubt of my goodness, but then there is a flash of insight, a flash of Divine Love and I am reminded – I AM GOOD. I AM LOVE. I AM ENOUGH. Just as I am. Then, it is in those flash-moments that I realize that this situation was brought to me to remind me again that it is I who must love myself first. I am the one who needs to love myself hard, so that I may be able to open up to the love from others. I am my harshest judge and critic and so long as I judge myself, I project and perceive judgment coming from others. So long as I open myself up to my Divine Loving nature, I project and perceive others to see this Love within me.
The Divine Love and Presence within me is the same that is within others. All of us. When I am able to recognize it and acknowledge it within myself, especially during the challenging times, I am more easily able to recognize it in others, especially during their challenging times. I am able to see them simply as other individuals learning to love themselves also, learning how to acknowledge the innate goodness and Divine Love within themselves.
As humanity begins to understand this, our capacity for compassion will grow exponentially. And who knows what beauty that will bring to humankind?
In gratitude for all there is and ever will be, I let it be so, and so it is!

Today, Holmes reminds me that we are all beneficiaries of Divine Life and Love. Every single one of us. He reminds me that it is through gratitude and acceptance of this Love that it becomes known to us.
I needed this message today, as it is through this awareness of Love and eternal Presence of all that I am that I am aware of my Oneness with all there is. With this awareness comes a confidence in what I am here to contribute in this lifetime. My contribution in this lifetime is the manifestation of this Love in as many forms as I know how. I believe that my contribution of Love in this lifetime will primarily show through healing, teaching, and guiding and it is my trust in this path of service to the proliferation of Divine Love that will lead me to the best outlets to do so. I have faith in Life’s way of bringing to me exactly what I’m ready for when I am ready for it, and I have faith in my own knowingness of what to do when I receive it.
I give thanks for all that has transpired and will transpire to open my own heart to Divine Love so that I may share it with others, so that the greater One that we are all a part of will continue opening and opening and opening to the Love that we are all a part of.
For all that is and ever will be, I let it be so and so it is!
