You have enormous creative power. To embrace this inner power, you must first believe in it. Then you must accept responsibility to develop and protect it. As you affirm your inner power, it grows. You draw to yourself what you want, rather than pushing to achieve it.

Acting from your inner power eliminates struggle in your life. Life becomes easier. Each success builds more power for the next situation. You shift your ways of thinking. You grow the power within to create change in yourself and the world.

Keep your inner balance and allow your life to flow effortlessly.

With too much activity you burn through your inner power. You find yourself in a state of imbalance. With acceptance of responsibility for your life, you recognize the need to go within for the deeper reasons why. You understand that the external world reflects the inner patterns of your mind. And you alone control your thoughts.

When you feel a shortage of time, you are placing too much emphasis on action. Your energy is misaligned. The key is to tend first to the practice of finding your inner balance. Pay attention to the desires of your heart. They come from your true Self. Set clear, deliberate intentions during each day. Choose good feeling thoughts or thoughts that make you feel better. By keeping your inner balance, you access the Source Energy that creates world. You flow this Energy to your creative endeavors. Your inspired actions feel joyful and effortless.

Develop a sacred attitude toward your life.

Once you accept yourself as a Divine Being, your life becomes sacred. You act in ways that affirm this belief. By acting with clear, deliberate intention, you build your inner power. You engage this sacred power. You make choices that use it wisely.

Having a sacred attitude toward your life influences each day. You show respect for yourself and all creation. You choose a quiet space for times of meditation and reflection. You pay attention to the things you do and bless them as sacred acts. Mundane aspects of your life take on new meaning. By living in sacred ways, you align with your Divine Self. You become the joyous creator of your life experience.

Tap into the creative Source deep within you.

You are here on Earth to express yourself. Aside from all the mundane stuff, you have a larger purpose to create. When you embrace your true Self, you tap into a wondrous Source of inspiration deep within. Original ideas flow. You gain the courage to express yourself in a totally different way. Creative expression allows you a way to share the beauty and wisdom of your Divine Source. It affirms that creative power comes from within.

You were born to be a joyous creator. But first you must discover your true Self and reclaim your inner power. Believing is vital. Believe in yourself as a Divine Being in human form. Believe that you have the power within for your sacred journey on Earth.

Important questions follow. Who do you want to be? What do you want to do in this lifetime? Reflect on your answers. Write them down as your life vision. As you focus on your heart’s desires, you make choices that honor who you really are. You use your sacred power wisely. You live with balance and joy.
