What the Heck is Positive Thinking?

By Richard Kent Matthews - Coach | Author | Speaker

You have the Power. Now, use it. 

 Positive thinking: Help or hinder? 

“Before a diamond can show its true brilliance and prismatic colors, it must stand a good deal of cutting, smoothing, and polishing. You are a diamond.” Rev. Richard Kent Matthews

What exactly is positive thinking? Is it pie in the sky, airy-fairy double think? Self trickery or deception? Hardly. But there are plenty of naysayers who believe it's just that. Pay them no mind.

How to Embrace Each New Day - An Affirmative Meditation

By Richard Kent Matthews - Coach | Author | Speaker

No matter where you are, Spirit is. Rejoice, be glad in it! *

A New Life - Affirmative Meditation

“Today I enter a new life. The many paths of opportunity are open wide before me. Something within me is alert and aware. My will, my thought, my imagination feel and sense new possibilities for expression. 

New ideas and new ways of doing things come to me. I recognize opportunity when it presents itself. I know what to do under every circumstance and in every situation. There is a deep feeling within me that all is well. I am ready and willing to give my best to life and life gives its best to me in return. 

I believe Divine Power indwells every positive, powerful thought and feeling. I live in the Divine Presence, which flows through everything. I am guided by Infinite Intelligence and I live this day in complete joy, light, and love. I know that every tomorrow is alive with the Good that is eternally available to me and to everyone.”

Each of us is a spark in the Eternal Presence we call God, Spirit, or simply the Universe. As we open our minds and hearts to that Exquisite Reality, our daily lives unfold in new and exciting ways. And as we remain available and receptive, the gifts of the universe pour into our experience as miracles and we, in turn, share them with the world. 

In spite of appearances, we are truly blessed. 

"If the only prayer you ever utter is 'Thank you,' it will have been enough." 
Meister Eckhart, 14th century mystic
