Affirmations & Weekly Recap

It’s affirmation time! As usually on Sundays you will find our weekly recap posted bellow followed by the affirmations for the week. The recap is fairly short and simple this time, but if you’ve missed any of the daily guides for inspiration, or if you just want to revisit them, you can do so bellow. And after a slight technical delay this past week, I will of course be back with a new video message this coming week (all happens in perfect divine timing). Until then, feel free to check out the ones that are up on the video page right now, or you may want to take a moment to go through the beautifully growing archives of inspirational articles, affirmations, and daily inspirations here as well—just to allow yourself to always be in that state of joyous remembrance of what at the deepest level of your being you know.

As for the affirmations, as always, be sure to really feel the power of these statements as you’re making them! They are declaring the truth about you, and as you allow yourself to go back to them repeatedly throughout the week you will find that they begin to transform your consciousness. And as your consciousness is transformed, by Law, your life is transformed.

Much love, peace, and richest blessings,

So you can sign up to get your daily inspiration straight into your inbox, or simply just check back with the site where you will find them posted as well.

There will be some more powerful talks following on this subject, each will be posted on Saturday mornings. And in addition I will be doing some shorter videos as well (under 10 minutes) that you will be able to find here on the site once they become available.

And finally, posted bellow is our weekly recap followed by our affirmations. As always, it is my hope and prayer that you are as blessed by receiving these messages of truth, inspiration and empowerment as I am by sharing them.

Video Message, Recap and Affirmations For The Week

As we like to do every Sunday in this corner of the internet, posted bellow you will find the recap for last week, followed by our affirmations.

As I always say, allow yourself to really feel the power behind the words when reading the affirmations. Especially as you contemplate them and repeat them throughout the week, you will find that they have the ability to have a powerful impact on your life. What’s beautiful is that they are short phrases that you can repeat to yourself anytime you like, and anywhere you are. So I always recommend that you truly take advantage of them and put them to good use.

Also bellow is a re-post of yesterday’s video message, titled “From Now And Then To All Here Now.” If you haven’t done so already, allow yourself to check it out. And while you’re at it, you may also want to listen to the beautiful song, titled “Genesis,” from the , posted underneath the video message. The song speaks nicely to the message’s “back to the beginning” theme.

Thanks so much for checking out the site! It is my hope and prayer that you be blessed by all that you find here. And definitely feel free to share any of it, and recommend us to whomever you feel might benefit from this.

With much love and appreciation,

Peace of Mind: The Law Of Perfect Reflection

“All’s love, yet all’s law.” Robert Browning

“Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”

                                                                                                                  Luke 6:37 & 38

We live in a universe that is governed by perfect divine law.

What this means is that nothing in this universe ever happens by accident. As we allow ourselves to truly take in what surrounds us, we will come to find that there is an indescribable and unfathomable intelligence at work everywhere we look. This intelligence is what is keeping the planets spinning in perfect orbit around the sun; this intelligence is what is beating our very hearts at this moment; and this intelligence is what is causing the sweet song of nature to always sing in a perfect rhythm and with a melody so harmonious that it cannot help but declare the magnificence of All That Is.

As we take in this vast complexity of Existence—as we allow ourselves to truly see it, to truly contemplate it—we will find that the presence of this Infinite Intelligence cannot be denied. In what way could such an intelligence function other than by the means of a perfect divine law that is always and forever in motion?

  • What are Universal Laws?

When we speak of universal laws, what we are referring to are constants that are always operating regardless of whether or not we know about them. Indeed, regardless of whether or not we believe in their existence! The law of gravity is perhaps the most well-known example that points to such a universal law. Gravity is always working. In fact, it’s what’s keeping us attached to the earth right now.

Universal laws are always impersonal, meaning it doesn’t matter who is using them. They will work for all of us regardless of who we may consider ourselves to be. The law of gravity does not care about our past deeds. Whenever we toss something up, we may rest assured that it will come back down.

In our society we generally know a great deal about universal laws in our physical world—such as the law of gravity or the law of electromagnetism—yet what many individuals are still unaware of is that, just as in our world of physicality, there are universal laws that exist in the metaphysical or spiritual realm.

So as we grow and mature throughout our spiritual path, it will certainly serve us well to develop a clear understanding of these universal spiritual laws. The reason being that, once we realize that these laws exist and we understand how they work, we may move out of the realm of blind faith—which always leaves room for doubt—into developing something of a calm knowingness instead. This calm knowingness comes from realizing the harmonious perfection that underlies everything in existence. It’s the knowingness that recognizes that the flow of All That Is is always geared towards greater expansion, evolution, and self-expression; and that, as all of us are part of one indivisible Whole, there can never be anything against us other than a mistaken perception we may have held about ourselves and our world.

So our task becomes to develop such a knowingness that will allow us to move beyond merely believing in something towards actually embodying the very essence of it. When we speak of this knowingness, we are indeed referring to “knowing the Truth that makes us free.” It will allow us to not only turn our own lives into those magnificent works of art that they are meant to be, but it will also cause us to radiate such luminosity, such calm, peace, and poise, such a powerful presence of love that we cannot help but shine as that bright beacon upon a hill.


When we speak of the Law of Perfect Reflection, what we are referring to is what Jesus the Christ is describing in the above quote taken from Luke 6:37 and 38. This law states that our outer experience will always and with no exception reflect back to us whatever our internal state of being happens to be. This means that our thoughts, beliefs, and expectations indeed create our experience of reality.

There are many ways we might go about describing this universal constant. Yet regardless of how we choose to articulate it, what matters is that we have an awareness of it. What matters is that we realize that, regardless of what our experience, it is never about punishment or reward but much rather about a perfect reflection within the world of time and space of what is happening within the depths of our own consciousness.

So as the above scriptural reference indicates, as we cultivate a non-judgmental attitude towards life, we will find that we will not be judged. The reason for this is that anytime we feel that we are being judged, this is actually an indication that somewhere, in some area of our life, we ourselves have been harboring some form of judgement. Our spiritual mirror is simply reflecting our own judgment back to us.

In the same manner, we can only feel condemned if we have already been carrying around the energy of condemnation. That is to say if we do not condemn, we will not be condemned simply because the energy of condemnation is not active within the vibration of our being.

As we give, we participate in the law of circulation. This means that whenever we give from a deep sense of willingness and inner sincerity, our giving will be mirrored back to us in the form of us becoming recipients as well as distributors of the blessings. Again, there is no reward or punishment involved here. Reward and punishment are human concepts that exist merely at the level of the surface mind. These do not exist in Ultimate Reality. What’s happening here is that, rather than us being “rewarded” for our acts of kindness, our generous spirit is simply being reflected back to us on our spiritual mirror. Indeed, a perfect reflection.

As the above reference also indicates, it will be given back to us “pressed down, shaken together, and running over.” This implies that, if we allow it, we will always receive back more than we have originally given. This points to the fact that the universe is in a constant state of expansion. Evolution only goes one way. So it is in the nature of All That Is to always become more, and never less. As we participate in the law of circulation, we may rest assured that—so long as we are receptive—we will always receive back in greater ways than we may have thought possible.

The key here is that we must train ourselves to give not in order to get something back. Because once we give for the mere reason of getting back, this would imply conditionality and a sense of withholding; we would not be giving if we didn’t know we’d be getting something back. And yes, this sense of withholding would then be reflected back to us in the form of things being withheld from us. This is why we speak of PERFECT reflection. We cannot fool or mislead the universe. So we must learn to instead give freely, without expecting anything back. And the paradox is that once we do this, we have opened ourselves up to receive back pressed down, shaken together, and running over.

A good way to get in the habit of doing this is to just be mindful that when it is given back to us, it will not necessarily happen through the individual to whom we have given. The reason being that we are not receiving back from a particular person, we are receiving back from the Source of all Creation. We are receiving back from the Ineffable Divine Presence that is always ready to shower us with more good than our surface mind could fathom.

So the great Teacher in the above quote then concludes with: “For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” In other words, whatever we’re putting out there in the form of thoughts, beliefs, or expectations, will be perfectly reflected back to us on our spiritual mirror which is our experiential reality.

Remember, universal laws are constants. Universal laws do not play favors. They are simply, just as the law of gravity, ingrained deeply within the fabric of Reality. So our task is to become aware of these laws,  and then to learn how to use them consciously in order to allow powerful transformations to take place within our experience.

As we do this, we go from being unconscious participants in the eternal dance of creation, to being conscious participants. Because the truth is, we will be participants either way simply just because we are here. We exist. We are and always will be part of All That Is. So we might as well be conscious about it.

Life is indeed magnificent! Let’s taste this sweet magnificence today as we allow it be the reality of our experience!


Everything I observe in the seeming external is a reflection of my internal state of being!

I walk in an awareness of Love! I walk in an awareness of Perfect Spiritual Reality! Perfect God! Perfect Life! As this becomes my dominant state of being, my experience is shifted into the realm of the miraculous!

Video Message, Weekly Recap and Affirmations

Posted bellow you will find our weekly recap. So if you haven’t had a chance to visit the site on a regular basis throughout the week, you may want to take a moment to immerse yourself (or re-immerse yourself) into last week’s beautiful meditative thoughts, each of which can help you to reconnect with that sweet, blissful, and timeless essence within you that is your True Self.

Also, be sure to catch my second video message, titled “Your Spiritual Mirror: High Watch Toward The One,” which you will also find bellow, followed of course by our weekly affirmations. As always, allow yourself to really feel the powerful vibrations when you read these affirmations either silently or state them aloud, and see yourself being the embodiment of them. You may also want to go back to them throughout the week, even print them out if possible, in order to really let them take root in your awareness. Because they aren’t just words, they are declaring the truth about you!

And as I say in the video, what you are doing as you are immersing yourself in all the truths here (the videos, the articles, the meditative thoughts, and the affirmations), what you are doing is rewiring your nervous system. You are retraining yourself, so that you may begin to live your life from a constant awareness of your true nature which is indeed the very spiritual image and likeness of God. There’s brilliance, beauty, and magnificence that is seeking to be expressed through you. Make that decision today that you will let it.

Much love, peace, and richest blessings to you!

Weekly Video, Recap & Affirmations

As many of you have probably seen by now, this week we’ve released our very first weekly video message/sermon, which has also been added to the weekly video archive page. The message is titled “Living From The Inside Out,” and it is part of our “In the Beginning…” January theme here on Awakened Life Now. If you haven’t done so already, be sure to check it out. It’s a little longer than what they will usually end up being, but if you choose to invest the time, you will most certainly derive a benefit and a blessing from it! The two questions for you to ask yourself towards the end of the message have the power to transform your life beyond measure; I know this from my own experience. :)

Bellow you will find the video posted again. Feel free to comment on it or let me know if you have questions or would like to have something addressed in more detail. As for when to expect these weekly messages, starting with the next one they will always be posted on the site every Saturday morning. So rather than a lengthy Saturday article, I will instead include what I was going to mention in the article in the video messages. There will still be articles in both the Activate Your Soul’s Potential and the Peace of Mind categories respectively, but most likely they will be posted throughout the week instead. And rather than on a weekly basis, we will probably be putting those out more periodically. The Meditative Thoughts, obviously, will continue to be posted Monday thru Friday. And every Sunday, such as today, you can expect some powerful affirmations that will remind you of the magnificence and the limitless potential that is within each and everyone of us. So you can really always expect something good on whatever day you choose to be a part of our beautiful unfolding online presence here. Life is magnificent, indeed!

As always, it is my prayer for you that you find all the content here on Awakened Life Now to be beneficial for the continuing unfolding of your Soul!

Much love, peace, and richest blessings to you!
