How to Use Affirmative Prayer (Part I) - Shattering the Myths

The Three Toxic Myths

“There is a natural law of abundance which pervades the universe, but it will not flow through a doorway of belief in lack and limitation.” Paul Zaiter
I begin a series of short lessons that you may enjoy. If they help, then I've done my part. Use them as you will.
You have an inner belief boundary that defines who you are, what’s possible for you, and what you deserve to enjoy. This boundary is based in past perceptions and not on fact or truth. You live out these beliefs without questioning their validity. You have a strong need to cling to these beliefs and have difficulty releasing them. Your circumstances won’t significantly change until you release the need to cling to those beliefs and consciously create new pathways, new goals, new thoughts. (Paraprased from The Inner Game of Selling by Ron Willingham © 2006)

Myth #1: There’s not enough: there’s not enough money, food, water, air, time, love, etc.
Truth: Sufficiency is not an amount, it’s an experience. Key: Willingness to trust.

Myth #2: More is better--a chase with no end and a race without winners.
Truth: Sufficiency resides inside each of us and we can call it forward. Key: Clarity of purpose.
Myth #3: That’s just the way it is and there’s no way out. The path of resignation. Poor me, poor us. This one holds the strongest grip. Truth: Sufficiency is a consciousness, an attention, an intentional choosing of the way we think about our circumstances. Key: Openness of mind and heart. 

“When you let go of trying to get MORE of what you don’t really need, it frees up oceans of energy to make a difference with what you have. When you make a difference with what you have, it expands.” Lynn Twist ‘The Soul of Money’
