Yesterday at a cafe I overheard a sad and astonishing conversation. Two women about the same age were talking nearby me in line. The first said, “Yep, I turn 33 tomorrow. And hey, it’s ALL downhill from here, right? “I mean, I’ll just never be this young or in shape again. Everything will just get harder and harder. Get ready. Fewer and fewer opportunities for love, for work, for adventure, for ANYTHING are just around the bend,” said one, as the other nodded in agreement.
I couldn’t help but surreptitiously scan both of their faces for traces of irony or humor. But oh my god, no, I couldn’t believe it. They honestly weren’t joking! I mean, they were just SO completely wrong in so many different ways. They had just taken a mega-dose all the toxic thoughts of scarcity, fear and loss that are embedded in this culture, especially for women.
Because the truth is that our reality is deeply informed by how we see it, and by the limiting thoughts habitually formed in our minds. Think your life is over at 35 and you can indeed build a wall of constriction and fear that is a self-fulfilling prophecy. But believe that you’re barely getting started (I tell myself that every day) and the Divine can bring miracles beyond anything the ego can imagine. THAT becomes your daily reality instead.
So here are some mantras of Divine intercession on a whole slew of topics. These reliably elicit magic, expansion, and possibility when done with a sincere heart or even partially open mind. These go far beyond affirmations; they truly invoke the highest divine potential. They bypass the conditioning and repetitive constraints of the ego.
I recommend doing whichever ones you need for at least twenty-one days to help the mind recalibrate. Even if you are skeptical, why not try any of them as an experiment?
These and many, many more are in my book Outrageous Openness: Letting the Divine Take the Lead.
1. When you need to find work:
Dear Divine, you know all my talents and abilities, even ones that are hidden from me. You know my financial needs as well. I now call you into my work life, knowing that the right work and career is already selected. I’ll be shown the right actions to take at the right time.
2. To be open to love and relationships:
The perfect partner is already selected. He or she is arriving in the right way at the right time. I am so grateful to receive him or her.
3. When you’re beating yourself up:
Change me Divine Beloved into one who knows my own value and worthiness. Let me see myself as you see me.
4. When something isn’t happening as fast as your mind thinks it should:
My life is unfolding in Divine timing. All delays are beneficial. I’m always at the right place at the right time.
