Prosperity Affirmation by Catherine Ponder
I am a native Californian who grew up in Southern California in the L.A. area. When I was 19, I moved to the San Fernando Area. I moved there, because I was married for a short time. We didn't really have any friends to speak of; and when we divorced in 1971, I stayed in the area. I got into the single scene and made a lot of friends. I felt so CONNECTED there. I knew everyone and everywhere I went, I would run into people I knew. I had a wonderful social life, and I loved it.
In 1989, I allowed my parents (who lived in Orange County) to talk me into moving to Orange County, California. The deal was that if I agreed to move to Orange County, they would buy me a condo. I agreed, and I lived there until 2003. I DID NOT FEEL CONNECTED THERE.
Catherine Ponder's book "Open Your Mind To Receive" is one of my most favorite affirmation books (aside from my book). I bring her up, because in late summer of 1993, I started doing one of her affirmations, and it completely changed my life. The affirmation is
GOD IN ME NOW FREES OF ME OF ALL RESENTMENTS, ATTACHMENTS OR FEARS TOWARD OR FROM PEOPLE, PLACES OR THINGS OF THE PAST OR PRESENT. I AM NOW IN MY TRUE PLACE, WITH THE TRUE PEOPLE AND WITH MY TRUE PROSPERITY NOW.
I repeated this life changing affirmation out loud at least 1 hour a day over and over again EVERYDAY for a month or two. Things started to happen. I was hired by a Travel Agency for Nudists to be "staff" as a psychic on their yearly cruise. Like I stated in a previous post, once a year this travel agency books out a whole ship for nudists. That's 2000 people all naked in one place. On that cruise, I met so many people from the Tampa, Florida and Atlanta, Georgia area. I was invited to visit my friends in one of the nudist resorts in Florida shortly after that, and visited a few times. I felt such a deep connection with Florida and my Florida and Atlanta friends. I missed my friends and Florida when I wasn't there. I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt that some day I would move to Florida and live in one of the nudist resorts. I felt such a deep CONNECTED feeling every time I visited Florida. It took 10 years for me to be able to make that move. I moved to Florida July 31, 2003, on a whim. In April of 2003, I made a phone call to the wife of a friend who was now the general manager of a nudist resort. I hadn't seen them in quite a few years, but we stayed in touch through letters, phone calls and emails. I invited myself to visit them and in early June, I did just that. Shortly after that I moved to Pasco County, Florida. I feel so CONNECTED here, and I feel a sensing of belonging here that I hadn't felt since living in the San Fernando Valley. I know it was the affirmation from 10 years ago that started the ball rolling. I sold EVERYTHING, including my condo, to move here and start over. I even had to buy forks, spoons, you name it, but it was the best thing I ever did. Now, my next goal is to be able to afford to live a few months out of the year in the summer SOMEWHERE ELSE where the humidity doesn't frizz up my hair : - ). That is a negative about living here. My thoughts are of San Diego. I know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that I would feel totally CONNECTED there. My best friend for 15 years (a guy) lives there, and he is involved with the tantra community there. I know if I lived there part time, I would be totally CONNECTED to the Tantra Community. What a wonderful way that would be to have the best of both worlds.
Thank you Catherine Ponder for your affirmation and I thank myself for having the courage to make such a drastic and wonderful move to Pasco County, Florida. xxxooo
