Creator of the Universe, we ask you today to help us accept ourselves as we are. Help us to accept our mind as it is, with all its emotions, hopes and dreams, with our personality, our unique way of being. Help us to accept our body as it is, with all its beauty and perfection. Allow the love we feel for ourselves to be so strong that we will never more reject ourselves or sabotage our happiness, our freedom, our love.

From this moment on, allow our every action and reaction, our every thought and emotion, to be based in love. Help us, Creator, to increase the love we feel for ourselves, until the whole dream of our life transforms itself, changing fear and drama to love and happiness. Allow the power of our self-love to be great enough to squash all the lies we believe in because we were programmed to believe them, all the lies that we are told claiming that we will not be able to do what we want. Allow the power of our self- love to be so great that we no longer have to live according to the opinions of others. Permit us to trust in ourselves so completely that we can make the changes necessary to our lives. With our self-love, may we no longer be afraid of assuming responsibility for our lives, no longer afraid of facing our problems, whatever they may be, and solving them as they arise. Permit us to achieve whatever we wish to achieve with the power of our self-love.

Starting today, help us to love ourselves so much that we never create adverse circumstances. May we live our life being ourselves, without pretending to be otherwise just so that others will accept us or tell us we are fine, because we know who we are. With the power of our self-love, allow us to like the image we see of ourselves every time we look in the mirror. Put a big smile on our faces, lighting up our exterior and interior beauty. Permit us to feel such an intense love for ourselves that we always appreciate our own company.

Permit us to love ourselves without judgments because when we judge, we blame ourselves and then feel the necessity to be punished, thus losing from sight Your love. Strengthen in us this moment our desire to forgive ourselves. Cleanse our minds of emotional poisons and judgments, so that we may live in love and peace.

Allow our self-love to be the power which changes our life dream. Allow the power of self-love -- this new power in our hearts -- to transform all our relationships, beginning with the relationship we have with ourselves. Help us to free ourselves of all conflicts with others. Permit us to be happy because we have shared our time with our dear family and associates, and can forgive them for whatever injustice we feel they have committed against us. Help us to love ourselves so deeply that we can forgive anyone who may have hurt us.

Give us courage to love our family and friends unconditionally, and to change our relationships in a positive and loving way. Help us create new channels of communication in our relationships, so that there be no declared war, neither winner nor loser. Allow us to work together as a team with love, happiness and harmony.

May the relationship we have with acquaintances and friends be based on respect and joy, so that we no longer feel the necessity of telling them what they should think or be. May our love relationships be marvelous. May we feel happiness every time we give of ourselves to our partner. Help us to accept others as they are, without judging them, because when we reject them we reject ourselves; and when we reject ourselves, we reject You.

Today is a new beginning. Help us to restart our lives today, with the power of our self-love. Help us to appreciate the fact that we are alive, to appreciate our relationships, to explore life, to take risks and not be afraid of love. Permit us to open our hearts to the love which is our right since our birth. Help us to become Masters of Gratitude, Generosity and Love, so that we may rejoice in all Your creations, today and always.


We ask you today, Creator of the Universe, to open our hearts, so that we may appreciate all of Your Creations and live in eternal love with You. Help us to see You in all that our eyes, ears, heart and senses perceive. Allow us to see with the eyes of love, so that we may find You wherever we go, and see You in all Your creations. Allow us to see You in every cell of our bodies, in every emotion of the mind, in every dream, in every flower, in every person we meet. You cannot hide from us because You are everywhere, because You are one with all of us. Allow us to be conscious of this truth.

Allow us to be conscious of our power to create a celestial dream, where all is possible. Help us use our imagination to direct our life dream, the magic of our creation, so that we may live without fear, anger, jealousy or envy. Give us a light to follow; make our search for love and happiness end today. Allow something extraordinary to happen today, changing our lives forever. Make everything we say and do be an expression of the beauty which exists in our hearts, always based in love.

Help us to be like You, to love as You love, to give as You give, to create a masterpiece of beauty and love equal to Your creations. Beginning today, and continuing gradually as time goes by, help us increase the power of our love, so that we may create the masterpiece of our own life. Today we offer to You, Creator, all our gratitude and love, because You gave us Life.
