New Earth: Know & Affirm

Based on teaching of Sacha Stone

In old Earth’s duality
Our anchors were faith and hope
To survive the storms of life
In trusting these we could cope

Doing our best to be positive
No matter what comes our way
Being calm our hopeful stance
As negativity hit each day

In New Earth’s Higher rays
We claim our Divine Power
Magnificent creative Beings
We are the only allower

Seeing from a Higher perspective
Hope and faith allow a lack
Giving away our control
To another power having our back

Using our aligned intuition
And standing strong in our knowing
We truly empower ourselves
Our Divine spark is glowing

Affirming from that stance
‘I AM’ words Blessed, creative
Expressing our true essence
God within us each day we live

I know I AM the Love
I know I Am the Light
I know I AM Sovereign
I know I AM shining bright

I know I AM a part of God
I know I AM a powerful Being
I know I AM creating it all
I know I AM reflecting what I’m seeing

I know I AM part of it ALL
I know I AM ONE in Unity
I know I AM a Spiritual Being
I know I AM eternally free

About This Poem

Hope and faith were a very important part of anyone’s attitude of the past, these were what would help us get through our lives especially when faced with difficulties and hardship. However, as humanity is now raising our vibration and consciousness higher we need to move on from these old ways of thinking.

When I listened to Sacha Stone talking about this last year it really ‘sang true’ to me and I knew it was an important aspect to write a poem about. In my series of poems ‘Affirming The Classics’ I have been re-writing old poems and hymns to make them affirmations, so this poem fits well with those too.

I am now compiling a new collection called New Earth these poems are written from the perspective of us already living in New Earth (or 5D) and looking back on how things were (or still are for many in our current 3D world of duality.) The Law of Attraction teaches us that we create our own reality and the only way it works is to put your focus and attention on what you want to create, regardless of what you may see all around us!

God Is In Me

Affirming The Classics: God Be In My Head – Book Of Hours

God is in my head
     And in my understanding

God is in my eyes
     And in my looking

God is in my mouth
     And in my speaking

God is in my heart
     And in my thinking

God is United with me
     In Eternal Oneness

About This Poem

I have always loved this simple poem/prayer that was written over 500 years ago! It is also known as The Sarum Prayer or Sarum Primer, and a hymn.

This was obviously a very easy one to update into an affirmation, just acknowledging the presence of God instead of asking, not using ‘mine’ as it would not be the way we would use that word nowadays, and confirming there is no ‘end’ or departing.. just eternal Oneness.

The original prayer:

God Be In My Head
And In My Understanding
God Be In Mine Eyes
And In My Looking
God Be In My Mouth
And In My Speaking
God Be At Mine End
And At My Departing
(Book Of Hours)

Desiderata Fulfilled

Affirming The Classics: based on Desiderata by Max Ehrmann

Wherever I Am, I remain calm and tranquil.
I Am always at peace in the silence of my heart.
I accept all people just as they are.
My Unconditional Love and Light flows in Oneness.

I speak my truth clearly with an open heart.
I listen attentively to all the people I meet…
     We exchange our stories and always learn something from the experience.
My energy of Love and Light attracts only those on the same vibrational path.
I appreciate those I perceive as having more of whatever focus I Am placing…
     Their Light shines before me, as I also shine my Light for others.

I enjoy my achievements and my plans.
I know everything always works out for my highest good.
I follow my passions, so I Am guided to live in abundance, truth and joy…
     Working alongside others who walk the same path.
I thank and Bless all those who inspire, in all the diversities of life.

I Am a Divine Being of Love and Light
I see this in Everyone and Everything, as Love is All-That-Is

I gracefully change through the moments, days and years.
I let go, and let God nurture me in strength of Spirit.
I Am of the Light, therefore darkness is an illusion.
We are all One, so loneliness is an illusion.
I Am kind, gentle and loving with myself, and all others.

I Am a child of the Divine Universe.
I Am as needed and precious as the trees on Earth and the Cosmos of stars.
The Universe continually unfolds and expands for the Highest Good of The-All.

I Am at peace with my own connection and perception of God.
I Am contented knowing others will always have their own perceptions.
I Am truly at peace in the Inner-Knowing and stillness of my Divine Soul.

My powerful thoughts and beliefs create my world.
I Am living in a beautiful world of Love, Light, Wonder and Miracles.
I Am perpetually happy, because no matter what: ALL IS WELL.

About This Poem

Incase you haven’t read my recent posts, I am re-writing some of my favourite classic inspirational poems to make them into Affirmations. 

I first heard the words of Desiderata in 1972 when I was eleven. The song by Les Crane was in the UK charts, so for several weeks it was being played often on the radio. I really loved some of the words and they stuck with me through my life, so when I began to collect inspirational quotes and poems in the early 90’s, this was one of the first I searched for. Although I always liked the poem, it never completely felt right to me. It was when I learned of the Law of Attraction that I discovered why: so much of it is negatively focused. Here is the original poem by Max Ehrmann with the two parts I always remembered in bold…

Go placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly, and listen to others – even the dull and ignorant – they too have their story.

Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit. If you compare yourself with others, you may become vain and bitter, for always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself. Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans.

Keep interested in your own career, however humble, it is a real possession in the changing fortunes of time. Exercise caution in your business affairs, for the world is full of trickery. But let this not blind you to what virtue there is, many persons strive for high ideals, and everywhere life is full of heroism.

Be yourself. Especially, do not feign affection. Neither be cynical about love, for in the face of all aridity and disenchantment it is perennial as the grass.

Take kindly the counsel of years, gracefully surrendering the things of youth. Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune. But do not distress yourself with imaginings. Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness. Beyond a wholesome discipline, be gentle with yourself.

You are a child of the Universe, no less than the trees and the stars, you have a right to be here. And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the Universe is unfolding as it should.

Therefore, be at peace with your God, whatever you conceive Him to be, and whatever your labours and aspirations, in the noisy confusion of life, keep peace with your Soul.

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams, it is still a beautiful world. Be careful. Strive to be happy.
Max Ehrmann

I’m fascinated now thinking back (as I write this), I can see that the words I remembered have shaped my life…

Go placidly amid the noise and haste” Throughout my adult years, I have been told by many different people that I have a calming presence “and remember what peace there may be in silence.”  I have always enjoyed the silence of being alone.

“You are a child of the Universe, no less than the trees and the stars, you have a right to be here.” In more recent years I have come to discover that not feeling ‘worthy’ has been a negative trait that has run through my whole life. I believe I clung to these words as they helped me to feel better about myself. But also, even before I heard these words, I had began to be drawn towards certain trees. In later years my love of trees grew and also my awe of the overwhelming magnitude of a sky full of stars, with all it’s potential!

“And whether or not it is clear to you, no doubt the Universe is unfolding as it should.” It was to be many years before I truly understood these words. The Law Of Attraction and that no matter what happens in our lives – All Is Well – are now two very important parts of my passion in writing to inspire others.

Did I attract those traits from the words impregnated in my mind? Or, was I attracted to them (to be installed) because they were a part of who I was destined to become? It seems to me to be like the ‘chicken and egg’ question!

The Miracle Morning – SAVERS

Title Quote: Hal Elrod

Silent meditation at the start of your day
     Source is connected to guide your way

Affirmations plant positive seeds in your head
     Allowing them to bloom in the days ahead

Visualization sets your desired goal
     Virtuous images delight your Soul

Exercise benefit’s the physical part of you
     Essential balancing with mind and spirit too

Reading self-growth books will provide ideas and more
     Recommended wisdom opens many a door

Scribing your thoughts and journey, the path you take
     Supports all your Miracle Morning, your Soul will Awake

About This Poem

Several years ago I came across Hal Elrod online and read of his amazing recovery from a fatal car crash that left him in a coma with serious injuries. He went on to achieve great success as a speaker, life-coach and author. His first book was an autobiography of his story: ‘Taking Life Head On (How To Love The Life You Have, While You Create The Life Of Your Dreams’)

I added this book and The Miracle Morning to my Amazon Wishlist (which contains way too many books!) thinking I must read them one day.  I also added several of his positive attitude quotes to my website, which is why I easily remember his name. A few years later I was at the library with my grandchildren. I hadn’t gone to get any books, but I always take a look at the ‘Mind, Body, Spirit’ shelves just to see what’s there. I noticed a Hal Elrod book, The Morning Miracle, so I knew I had to borrow it! I was hooked within a few pages and devoured it, making notes. I knew I had to do this!

The Miracle Morning encourages you to wake early each morning and do a list of six things to transform your life. As a guide to remember the six things he uses the acronym SAVERS:
Silence, Affirmation, Visualization, Exercise, Reading, Scribing. 

I must admit that I only stuck to it for about six months, it certainly did make a difference, but I found that I was so absorbed in doing the things and began adding more and more to the list, it would take up ALL of the morning, no matter how early I got up!!!  So I let go of ‘having’ to do it, and instead just keep it in mind as beneficial things to do every day.
