End To The Pain: 5 Affirmations

When Will It?

endThere are events in our lives that in the moment of their “happening” we feel as if there will be no end to it.

Nothing could be further than the truth. It might not end as quickly as you might like or want but end it will. In the meanwhile, as the storm is raging and until the eye passes you over, there is something to be learned, something that will transform you should you allow it.

This week, as we continue to look at life challenges, we began with the following affirmation, an adaptation of a prayer by Julian of Norwich:

“Life provides everything that I need. It has my clothing, wrapping me in love. Life embraces me, shelters me, surrounds me with Its Tender love. Life will never desert me!”

The Key…To The End

keys“Life has set me down in the midst of a mystery. But life has given me a key. The key is in my own mind. The key may not take me to the end of the mystery, but it takes me to the beginning. Having begun, I can go on.”

That is our second affirmation, taken directly from a great teacher that some of you might not have heard of – James Dillet Freeman.

There are days that you feel that you simply can go on. The pain is too much. The suffering too great. You just want it to end. Should that day be today, you are invited to repeat that affirmation as often as needed. Use the key.

READ  Mental Illness Is Not Taken Seriously

Broken Pieces

Illnesses are some of the toughest challenges many of us can face. Today’s affirmation, taken from Marianne Williamson, is one for you or on behalf of a loved on dealing with an illness.

“Here is my [or _____________’s] broken body, please heal it. May every cell be filled with grace and returned to its divine right placement, in me [in _____________ ]  and in all others.”

Your Grace Is My Sufficiency

For reasons that we all know and that are different for each of us, money and material possessions are a couple of those challenges that keep coming up as an issue. We always want more. Some are never satisfied with “what is.” Without judgement, let us affirm the following and allow Life to bring us what is needed for today and every day.

This one is from another great teacher – Joel Goldsmith, who suggests that to every insistent demand let our answer be:

“No, no. This is not what I need or want. They grace is my sufficiency, nothing else – not money, not [stuff], only thy grace.”

As we end another week, we hope that you enjoyed our posts this week. This journey is full of challenges and each of us has different ways of dealing with them. What we offered throughout this week were ways you could consider should you be facing any of the issues we discussed. Thanks to Alexis Ali who submitted Part Two of her short story series about three people living within similar circumstances, facing the basic problem of “not having a perfect life,” and a teacher who guides them. Check out Part One and the follow-up to this series.

      Thank you for the visit and the kind words. Do visit again. 🙂

  4. Well the pain is usually a precursor to the Joy, rejuvenation, renewal, I usually dig deeper inside of me and ask my other self, my spirit to give me an answer instead of asking When will it end? I ask how can I learn from this and whats the thing I am being shown…I then focus on whats awesome in my life…it always works

    And on this planet The Grace of the Lord is Sufficient coz it is by grace taht we are who we are…:)

      I am a big believer in Grace as I am in the fact that Life is given to each of us in the same measure. It is up to us to dig deep as you say when we are not sure how to handle “a moment.” Thanks for sharing Julie. 🙂
