Meditation is a tool that can put us in touch with the spiritual reality of life. It quiets our minds, relaxes our bodies, and focuses our attention.

The purpose of visioning is to provide a place in consciousness where God’s idea is revealed. Visioning differs from visualization in that we are allowing the divine idea to emerge rather than using our imagination to focus on manifesting specific things. It is an open and receptive state of consciousness, much like meditation.

Affirmations are statements we make about our being and our lives. The word affirmation means “something validated, made firm.” An affirmation is a desired state in present-tense terms as if it is already manifest in our lives. With affirmations, we can reprogram our minds. When you repeat them often and believe in them you can start to make positive changes.
How To Write An Affirmation
Make them personal – I am… I know… I let…
Make them short – one sentence if possible
Write them in the present tense – never use the past or future tense
Make the vocabulary personal to you – use your own manner of speaking
Be specific, but do not outline – state what but not how
