1 … Sometimes I feel powerless over this behaviour, and I’m looking forward to getting a handle on it.
2 … I know that everything I want is in a much brighter place than where I’ve been and that my inner being/source energy/God is forever calling me towards the light. It’s good for me to know that.
3 … Since the life I’ve lived has got me to this place, I’m deciding that this is the best place to start anew. I make peace with my past and allow it to stay where it is and know that it provides a firm footing to know what I don’t want and allows me to choose even strongly, what I DO want for my life instead.
4 … Life has caused me to know what I don’t want, which lets me know what I DO WANT. I’m now going to give my undivided attention towards WHAT I DO WANT! The moral inventory that I choose to see is that I AM MAGNIFICENT.
5 … When I admit that I’m a bad person or that I’ve done a terrible thing – I feel bad. That negative emotion lets me know that I’m looking at myself in a way that my inner being/source energy/God does not do. The more I admit my wrongdoings, the more disconnected I become. I’ve decided to stop doing that and focus on the things that I AM DOING WELL instead.
6 … I now understand that what I call God pays no attention to my defects and has only been seeing me as the perfect being that I AM. I’ve decided to do that too and see not only myself, but everyone else as the magnificent beings we ALL are inside.
7 … I can’t ask God to remove my shortcomings as God has never seen me as less than who I really am inside. As God doesn’t pay attention to the negatives, I’ve decided now release my awareness of them as well and become much MORE aware of my positive aspects instead.
8 … When I talk about the things I did in my PAST that were disappointing or harmful to others, I feel terrible, and I use that as my PRESENT excuse to hold myself apart from who I have become. All of us will benefit so much more by focusing on the brightness of the FUTURE that we wish to see unfolding before us instead.
9 … As much as it is nice to please others, I’m joyful in my knowledge that we all create our own reality. I will bring myself in alignment with my own inner being/source energy/God as best I can, but today I set everyone else free to create their own reality too and no longer need them to behave in any particular way so I can feel good about myself.
10 … Now I’m really flowing and I’m beginning to see myself the way my inner being/source energy/God knows who I really am inside. I don’t need to give attention to anything that is less than who I am becoming. I let go the past. I let go this last moment, I let go anything that is not who I intend to be and move gently towards the future I dream of creating.
11 … I use meditation (to quieten my mind) and prayers (of appreciation for what I’ve already been given) to gain a more conscious contact with my inner being/source energy/God as I understand it.
12 … There were things in my life that I didn’t know how to handle and I found temporary relief from the discomfort by using a substance to soothe the discord between me and my inner being/source energy/God. Now I know that I can get longer lasting relief by thinking about, talking about and focusing on things that make me feel better, that make me feel whole, that cause me to know the magnificent person I am inside and align me with my inner being/source energy/God. My example shows other people the POWER of giving complete attention to getting emotional relief first, to what makes them feel better, to what causes them to see their own magnificence and come into closer alignment with their inner being/source energy/God too.
