The Spirit speaks from Love not shame!
The “small quiet voice” of intuition is telling us the Truth.
We learned to negatively affirm ourselves several hundred
times a day - it is very important to start taping over the old tapes with
I am a capable person.
I am a competent person.
I am an intelligent person.
I am a worthwhile person.
I can dare to take a risk.
I am entitled to good.
I choose to be happy.
I can ask for what I want.
I can say what I feel.
I am a radiant expression of God.
I trust and follow my inner guidance.
I am an unlimited being.
I can create anything I want.
I picture abundance for myself and others.
I have a right to exist.
I can dare to see what I see.
I can dare to think what I think.
I can dare to question anything.
I can dare to feel what I feel.
I have a right to come to my own conclusions.
I am Happy Joyous and Free.
I have a right to make mistakes.
I have a right to be wrong.
I have within myself the answers to all my
I am a beautiful person.
I am free to be me.
I do not need to prove myself.
My mind and body are now in balance and harmony
and manifest divine perfection.
I accept responsibilities in my life happily
I am the master of my being and an active
co-creator of my life.
If we Truly believed the positive affirmations we would not have to say
them. When we most need to say them is when we least believe them
- when we are feeling the worst. The source of all
of our wounds ultimately is feeling abandoned by God, feeling
unlovable to our Creator.
The disease (the dark side
of the Force) learned to try to control feelings and behavior with fear,
guilt and shame.
The programming of the disease was
negative - to react to life from fear, lack, and scarcity. It is trying
to protect us by keeping us from trusting. It believes separation is what
"To the disease, this is a functional cycle. The shame begets the self-abuse
which begets the shame which serves the purpose of the disease which is
to keep us separate so the we don't set ourselves up to fail by believing
that we are worthy and lovable."
(Column "A Dance of Suffering, Shame, and Self-abuse"by
The entire Universe Loves me, serves me,
nurtures me and wants me to win.
I am a success to the degree that I
feel warm and loving to myself.
My debts represent my & others beliefs
in my future earning ability.
The most important thing to my loved ones’
happiness is that I be happy first.
My value and worth are increased by every
thing I do.
All my experiences are opportunities to gain
more power, clarity and vision.
I can fill all my needs if I am willing to
pay the price.
I have a right to ask for and expect something
Comparison of myself with another is meaningless.
I am the center of my universe; my world revolves
The Christ/Goddess/Spirit within me is creating
miracles in my life here and now.
We can tell ourselves good things!
I AM a magnificent Spiritual being
having a Joyous and exciting human adventure!
"Integrating the Spiritual Truth (the vertical) of an unconditionally Loving
God-Force into our process is vital in order to take the crippling toxic
shame about being imperfect humans out of the equation. That toxic shame
is what makes it so hard for us to own our right to make choices instead
of just reacting to someone else set of rules."
(Column "Empowerment" By Robert Burney)
The disease has radar it can
detect someone who feels familiar energetically in
a crowded room.
"In our disease defense system we build up huge
walls to protect ourselves and then - as soon as we meet someone who will
help us to repeat our patterns of abuse, abandonment, betrayal, and/or
deprivation - we lower the drawbridge and invite them in. We, in
our Codependence, have radar systems which cause us to be attracted to,
and attract to us, the people, who for us personally, are exactly the most
untrustworthy (or unavailable or smothering or abusive or whatever we need
to repeat our patterns) individuals -
exactly the ones who will 'push
"This happens because those people feel familiar.
Unfortunately in childhood the people whom we trusted the most - were the
most familiar - hurt us the most. So the effect is that we keep repeating
our patterns and being given the reminder that it is not safe to trust
ourselves or other people."

We need to own that we have the power to choose where to focus our mind.
We can consciously start viewing ourselves from the “witness” perspective.
It is time to fire the judge - our critical parent - and choose to replace
that judge with our Higher Self - who is a loving parent. We can then intervene
in our own process to protect ourselves from the perpetrator within
- the critical parent/disease voice.
(Article "Learing to Love your self" by Robert Burney)
Progress ~ not perfection.
We are works in progress,
We need to stop giving power to the monster within.
"We need to turn down the volume on those loud, yammering
voices that shame and judge us and turn up the volume on the quiet Loving
voice. As long as we are judging and shaming ourselves we are feeding
back into the disease, we are feeding the dragon within that is eating
the life out of us." Codependence:
The Dance of Wounded Souls
"The "critical parent" voice in my head has always berated me
for not being perfect, for being human. My expectations, the "shoulds,"
my disease piled on me were a way in which I victimized myself. I was always
judging, shaming and beating myself up because as a little child I got
the message that something was wrong with me.
There is nothing wrong with me - or you. It is our relationship with
ourselves and life that is dysfunctional. We are Spiritual beings who came
into body in an emotionally dishonest, Spiritually hostile environment
where everyone was trying to do human according to false belief systems.
We were taught to expect life to be something that it isn't. It isn't our
fault that things are so screwed up(Column "Expectations" By Robert Burney)
it is however our
responsibility to change the things we can within ourself."
"I needed to learn how to set boundaries within,
both emotionally and mentally by integrating Spiritual Truth into my process.
Because "I feel feel like a failure" does not mean that is the Truth. The
Spiritual Truth is that "failure" is an opportunity for growth."
Dance of Wounded Souls
"The part of you that tells you that you are
not lovable, that you are not worthy, that you are not deserving, is the
disease. It is trying to maintain control because that is all that it knows
how to do.
We are not "better than." We are also not "less than."
The messages that we are "better than" come from the same place that the
messages of "less than" come from: the disease.
We are all children of God who deserve to be happy.
And if you are right now judging yourself for not
being happy enough or healed enough - that is your disease talking. Tell
it to fuck off!!
It is not who you are - it is only a part of you.
We can stop giving power to that part of us. We can stop being the victims
My dreams come true.
I live in an abundant Universe.
I radiate self-esteem, inner peace, Love, well-being,
health, and happiness.
I create money and abundance through Joy, aliveness
I am vibrantly healthy, radiantly beautiful, and
The Light within me is creating miracles in my
body mind and relationships here and now.
I am now celebrating my life, having fun and enjoying
I am always deeply relaxed and centered, balanced
in every way.
I am whole and balanced within myself.
I always have everything I need.
I am enough.

some are original, some unknown. Many come directly from,
while others are inspired by, the work of Shakti Gawain - whom I recommend
