WAVES OF JOY
Alicia Hanlen, RScP
On this beautiful March day, I feel the warm embrace of Spirit as the sun on my face, and as the vision of the crystal-clear blue sky above. I breathe deeply and know that there is One Power, One Energy and One Presence in this universe, and that we are all equally and fully entitled to all of the gifts which that knowledge brings. It brings the possibility of fully understanding the truth of our being – that we are beings of Light, formed out of Love, and imbued with all of the qualities of the true nature of God. Knowing that Life expresses in, through, and as each one of us. Imagine that!! Inherent within ourselves, we have all of the wisdom and understanding, all of the makings of peace, kindness, compassion and/or forgiveness. There is a fundamental wholeness just awaiting our recognition, acceptance, and manifestation for each of us in this human experience. And so I awaken to this truth for myself, and invite each of you to do the same. I acknowledge and accept my God-given potential for greatness. I set aside any fear-based thoughts, and visualize them being washed away. As the sand flows easily and gently into the ocean, so, too, any constricting beliefs that no longer serve me depart from my being. I am free! I am centered in Love. I am an outpicturing of the creative nature of God. As I absorb these thoughts and feelings, I am awash in a feeling of connectedness, and feel a wave of joy flowing over and through me, and flowing outward to each being on the planet. My heart is bursting with gratitude for this inner knowing and acceptance of the One Power, the One Energy, and the One Presence. Once again I breathe deeply, and as I exhale, I surrender these words to the Law, knowing with perfect certainty that they are so, right here, right now, and always. And so it is.
