Adapted from Wings of Song, published by Unity Books. This was written as a responsive reading, but can also be used as a personal affirmation of God within:
Today, as we celebrate the gift of freedom, let us remember that true freedom begins within. As we become still, we allow the presence of the indwelling Christ Consciousness to fill every cell and fiber of our being. We look within, becoming one with this Christ presence, expressing through each of us in the power of the I AM.
Affirmation: I AM one with the Christ presence, the light of which now fills my entire being.
I let go the bonds of human limitation, and open wide the doors to infinite possibilities, as I allow Christ Consciousness to work through me.
Affirmation: My heart and mind are now willing to follow the Christ Consciousness in all things.
Truth flows through me in mighty currents, washing away doubt and fear. I attune myself to God’s will in all that I AM.
Affirmation: I AM the Truth in living expression.
“You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” (John 8:32) I experience the power of these words and rejoice that I AM free to be the child of God’s love I AM meant to be.
Affirmation: I AM a child of God – free and unlimited in my celebration of life.
My declaration of inner-dependence flows through me as I allow these words to become living truths within me. Gently and prayerfully I repeat this personal declaration of inner-dependence silently: “I hold these Truths to be self-evident. I AM created free and equal, endowed by a loving Creator with the inalienable rights of a fulfilling life, the freedom of Christ-directed choices, and the experience of happiness every day of my life.”
Affirmation: I affirm my declaration of inner-dependence now, seeking always to go first to God before taking any outer actions.
“You will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” (John 8:32)
Affirmation: I know the Truth, and I AM free! Thank you, God!
