Fear is no way to start your day

How would your maker have you approach your day?

from Answered Prayers by Julia Cameron

You enter your day as if it were a combat zone. You are frightened and defensive. You expect the worst. Bring your day to me. Let me create for you harmony and peace. Allow me to let the best happen, not the worst. I am a positive energy. Invite my action on your behalf. Allow me to dismantle hostility and enmity. Allow me to transform your experience from negative to positive. Ask to see the world though my eyes.

Through my eyes, the world is filled with potential good. Everywhere I look, I see possibility. There is one power operating through all of life, and that power is the power of good. All things work toward the good. There is an infinite wisdom directing life. Open yourself to my input and you will know that this is so. I am your source of safety and comfort. I am your rock, your fortress, your safe harbor.

Bring me your fearful heart. Allow me to enter it and dispel your shadows. I am a lantern of love. My light enters dark corners. My light reveals that there is nothing to fear. I am the comforter, the consoler. In my presence, all is good. You can trust me to go before you and light your path. It is my pleasure to guide you. It is my pleasure to bring you safety and help.
