Astheya - Questions & Affirmations
Today I want to share with you some questions and Affirmations to allow for further inward reflection:
In what ways can I give more generously to the world?
In what ways can I give back to Mother Nature?
In my relationships, how can I overcome the selfish Ego with the generosity of love?
How do I steal happiness from myself?
Is what I receive in direct symmetry with what I put out into the world?
Affirmations and Mantras are not one and the same and have wildly different origins and applications. I read recently that an affirmation is motivational whereas a Mantra is sacred. Affirmations are rather specific to assist in over-coming negative thoughts, feelings or emotions. Mantras on the other hand, are deeply rooted in the Yogic Philosophy. They are words, sounds or invocations that are repeated or chanted during Meditation. Then we have intentions, which are different again. An intention is a commitment to inspired action, and this is best explained by Candice Nikeia on her IGTV, and is linked to in the show notes of this episode. What I am going to share with your today are affirmations that you can take forward with you into your day:
I trust in the infinite and abundant Universe to give me precisely what I need in each moment
I know that there is always enough for me and I take only what I need
When I give with compassion and integrity I create endless opportunities so that I may receive what I need
I give first and then I take
I am always balancing giving and receiving so that the Universe may support all my material and spiritual needs
All this time
The Sun never says
To the Earth
“You Owe Me.”
With a love like that
