The Way of Oneness Affirmations

I am grateful to be alive.
I allow myself to expand and grow outside of my comfort zone.
When I am experiencing pain in my life, I acknowledge it and then look for the bigger yes that is wanting my attention.
I sit with my pain and the pain of others in non-judgmental discernment.
I feel my feelings and this softens my heart and creates true empathy.
It takes great strength to be tender hearted.
As I create my personal boundaries, I make it possible to come into oneness with others.
Others feel safe around me because they know where I stand.
I ask for clarity in communication if I do not understand.
I take the time to explore my own thoughts and feelings.
The issue may not be how I feel, but what I think about how I feel.
I use empathy, not to excuse another's behavior and position but to see the big picture.
I do not minimize, alter, or deny how I truly feel.
I use only positive self talk, always looking for the love in every situation.
I see myself and others as capable of leading an empowered life.
I do not mask pain in various ways such as anger, humor, or isolation, instead being honest and sitting with my feelings.
I do not express negativity or aggression in indirect and passive ways, instead journaling and seeking counsel from trusted sources.
The more honest I can be with myself about my feelings, the clearer my mind becomes.
With clarity of thought comes healing and empowerment.
As I experience the dance of thoughts and feelings, I do not take it all so seriously.
When I am able to watch and observe my inner dialogue, higher consciousness and greater awareness comes forth.
I pay attention to self-talk, and speak to myself as I would to a friend.
As I invoke the silent watcher within I start to come into oneness with my Higher Self.
My Higher Self is calm and centered with me.
I allow myself to receive praise and recognition.
I am fair and open-minded in my dealing with others.
When I experience conflict I stay present to the pain.
I allow the pain of conflict to create the alchemy of change within me.
I rise up out of conflict and come into oneness, by seeing the deep hidden message.
I come into my own, in full awareness that this is not accomplished alone.
I take responsibility for myself and for my own life, and am attentive to my own needs.
I am responsible for how I feel and what I think, and I respond with love.

I experience the joy of oneness with this creation, as I recognize the sacrifices that have been made by each of us for all of us.
I am one with all that is, even as I am whole and complete within myself.
It is my very wholeness from within that creates awareness of oneness with all that is.
