“Many of us live our lives with
the shade of awareness pulled down,
the shade that covers up the window of truth,
the window of seeing, the window of feeling.
Rather than lifting our shade up,
we shape-shift and contort ourselves
to try to look out at where we are
through the narrow slit of the truth,
the narrow slit of our limitations,
rather than just pulling the shade up.”
Barbara De Angelis, from Soul Shifts
In this energy of divine grace, I release the past.
I let go of old thoughts, old emotions, old worries, old ties that need to be broken.
I am cleansed in the living water of faith.
I carry nothing and no one into this moment.
My Spirit is washed clean of fear,
scrubbed clean of doubt,
rinsed off from every speck of worry
until the past falls by the wayside.
My temple of the living God
glows with the pure peace of knowing
that I AM THAT I AM.
In this love,
I breathe freely,
realizing that I AM favor.
I AM success.
I AM triumph.
I AM THE GREATER THINGS THAT I MUST DO.
