Positively Alive is filled with ideas I have found effective for healthy, happy and successful living. My intention in writing this book is to share with you practical ideas to help make each day of your life more meaningful, creatively productive, positive and satisfying. I believe the ideas and suggestions shared with you will help you experience a more intimate relationship with God, and help you use your wonderful mind and God-potential for greater peace of mind, life-enrichment, abundant prosperity, and to live life lovingly. (For more on love, please refer to my book, BE What You Are: LOVE.)
Positively Alive gives you daily power for positive living. Just by reading it through, I am sure you will be inspired and realize what a wonderful help it is you to overcome obstacles, turn challenges into blessings, and have greater faith and confidence. It provides you with solutions to many of life’s challenges – large and small. This book is meant to be an excellent source of inspiration and guidance for starting your day right, and for spiritual upliftment and enlightenment.
One of the most important aspects of Positively Alive is that it helps you realize and accept yourself as a uniquely wonderful, worthwhile, intelligent and deserving child of God.
There are forty individual, timely subjects in Positive Alive! At the end of each chapter is a Positive Prayer. After reading each chapter, pray (affirm) the Positive Prayer several times, then meditate quietly as you think about, assimilate and accept the truth of the ideas presented. There is real power and benefit from praying affirmatively using the Positive Prayers in this book.
May this book not only make an immediate positive change for good in your life, but continue to be a source of love, joy, peace, happiness and inspiration for positive living.
First Chapter: Today is a New Beginning
“I am sure that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion.” – Phil. 1:6
Every day can be a new beginning when you can make a fresh start. You can begin again. With the dawn of each new day, you have a brand new twenty-four-hour opportunity in which to make of your life what you will.
You can determine to make it happy, healthy, and prosperous. You can have the kind of day you desire. It is, of course, up to you. So, make it positive and productive. (For more on the power of I CAN, please refer to my book, How I CAN Have Everything!)
Sometimes we think we must wait until New Year’s day to make resolutions or to make a new start, but this is not true. Every day can be ‘New Year’s day’ to you when you decide to make each day very special, to make it into something of a positive accomplishment. You don’t have to wait until some special day to start over, to begin anew, and to establish yourself in a new pattern of thinking and acting.
One of the best things to do is to set goals (intentions) for yourself. Determine what you want to accomplish, to have, to be, to experience, then write those things down on paper and go for them with all your heart. Leave no stone unturned until you have done everything you possibly can to help make your dreams a reality in your life.
Do not, for even a moment, entertain thoughts that you cannot have what you want, or that you are unworthy of the very best God has to give. You are His beloved child and He wants you to be healthy, happy, positively alive, prosperous and creatively fulfilled. In fact, He wants you to experience His rich good now. You do not have to wait, but you do need to do the things that help manifest His rich good in your life.
One of those things is to accept that you are worthy and that you have all you need to make your life what you want it to be. If life has not been really great for you, then accept right now that you can change things for the better – beginning today! Believe with all your heart that you can make a brand new start. Believe this is the day in which your dreams start coming true because you are taking positive action toward them.
Know that just as God wants you to be healthy, happy, and prosperous He has given you everything you need to experience these things in your life. In fact, He continually gives to you the life, love, faith, intelligence, wisdom, power, and understanding you need for being positively alive, happy, healthy, and wealthy. He never stops!
Right now, on this day, it is good to think about your life and what it has been to this point, and to think of how you want it to be. It’s a good time, too, to allow time for planning your life. If you need or want to make changes, decide exactly what kind of changes need to be made and write them on paper. Go over them and meditate on them so that you get a clear picture in your mind of just what it is you want to accomplish.
Do not just leave your life ‘up to the Lord.’ This is often just a cop-out, an excuse for not taking charge of your own life and accepting personal responsibility for your own thinking and actions. Never leave your life up to someone else, either. No one else can really know what is right for you, or what God really wants to do through you. Take charge of your life by setting goals, make definite plans, and then, divinely guided, do all you can to help make your goals and plans establish you in ever-greater success and prosperity.
That is why it is wise to pray, asking for divine guidance and direction – and knowing and affirming that you have it – for making changes in your life. As you begin each day, take a few minutes to become very relaxed and quiet as you attune your mind to the Mind of God in you. Affirm His presence and power as the only reality within and all around you, and in your life and affairs.
Quietly talk over your goals and plans with God, and then be very quiet as you wait for His guidance. Even if nothing seems to come at that time, know and accept that you are being guided and directed by declaring that you are, and then thank Him for this. If some special guidance, hunch, or feeling comes, then gratefully follow that.
The next move is yours. Move into your brand new day knowing you are divinely guided in all that you think, feel, say, and do. Accept that this is a very special day in which you are going to meet your rich good and it is coming to meet you!
You may think if you wish, about problems or difficulties; about an apparent lack or limitation in your life if these are what you want to see more of. However, remember that thought is creative. Through your thinking – the ideas you entertain in your mind – you create your life. Understand that you should not waste any time or give energy to the things that you do not want to multiply in your life. Bless them and release them to the past and leave them there.
Know that you are a brand new, positively alive expression of God today, and as such, you are not bound by what has been, by any past beliefs in lack or limitation. Neither are you bound by past circumstances or conditions. Accept that just as this is a brand new, wonderful day, you have a beautiful new opportunity to make this day the very happiest and very best day of your eternal life. And you are going to do just that!
Put a smile on your face and move into this beautiful day with positive expectancy, expecting and accepting only God’s very best. (In reality, God only gives the very best. He has nothing else to give.) You are, right now, on your way to meet your rich good, and your rich good is coming to meet you – it is coming into your life today – is here now!
Yes, today is a new beginning for you. Make the most of it. As this day comes to a close, give grateful thanks to God for every small and large blessing today, and for making good progress today. Then, as you drift off to sleep, release the day knowing you have a wonderful new day coming in just few hours – a day to make another new beginning, and in which to be even more positively alive!
