Return to Krista's Korner

"Each of us must come to care about everyone else's children. We must recognize that the well being of our own children is intimately linked to the well being of all other people's children. After all, when one of our children needs life-saving surgery, someone else's child will perform it. When one of our children is harmed by violence, someone else's child will commit it. The good life for our own children can be secured only if it is also secured for all other people's children. But to work for the well being of all children is not just a practical matter-- it is also right!" - Lilian G. Katz, Phd.

Today's Positive Thought:

Within crisis are the seeds of new opportunity.

* Reflect for a moment on how this thought is similar or different from your usual thoughts.
* Remind yourself that thoughts are a choice and you can choose to replace your usual thoughts with this new positive thought.

Today's Positive Affirmation:

Every situation in my life, no matter how difficult it may appear, is the
beginning of something new and wonderful for me.

* Gently read the daily affirmation.
* Say this affirmation aloud three times.
* Imagine that the power of these words is resonating in your mind and soul, transforming the image you hold of yourself and your world.
* As you repeat the affirmation three more times, imagine that the sound of these words is shifting the vibrations in your physical body and creating a sense of greater health and well being for you.

Today's Positive Visualization:

As I take in a gentle breath, I feel the perfection of God surrounding me. I affirm that it is God's will for me to succeed in all that I do. In my mind's eye, I see every situation being transformed by the power of God's love into the perfect next step for me. I imagine all the difficult circumstances in my life turning into opportunities for greater blessings to manifest. I know that I will grow, heal, prosper, and succeed in and through everything that I do. I combine these images with the feelings of joy and let them go, knowing that they will create the good things I am visualizing and thinking.

* Read the daily visualization.
* Close your eyes.
* In your mind's eye imagine you can see, think, or feel this new vision of yourself that would be true if this visualization were true.
* See yourself acting in a new way as you accept, for a moment, that this new you is real.

Spend a few moments imagining yourself doing your daily activities and enjoying the new reality this visualization will create for you.

Taking The Positive Thought Meditation Experience With You:

* Take in a deep breath.
* Express thanks for two blessings in your life.
* Keep this feeling of relaxation and thankfulness with you as you go about your day.
* Remember to think this new thought several times throughout the day.
* Say your affirmation at least 10 times today.
* Visualize the positive effect this new thought is creating in your life at least once more today.

Have A Wonderful Day!
