Affirmations and ‘Spiritual Science’

Today I decided to do some mental work.

I’ve been meaning to sit down and write some good affirmations, as I find the ones you purchase can sometimes be so unrelatable or wishy-washy. I would read them sometimes and just roll my eyes at the way things were put.

I love your feeling. You are a trickster – sneaking away from me, only to return at some unexpected time.

I’m glad you’ve been coming to visit more often.

You and I are closer now, and I know that what we’ve built together will be much harder to lose.

I feel lucky now, I almost feel.. changed forever. And I hope it’s true.
