40 Days – Day 18

40 Days of Lent – From Release to Embrace

Rule 18

If you want to change the way others treat you, you should first change the way you treat yourself. Unless you learn to love yourself, fully and sincerely, there is no way you can be loved. Once you achieve that stage, however, be thankful for every thorn that others might throw at you. It is a sign that you will soon be showered in roses.“* 

Listen to the Rule on YOUTUBE:


Today, we are releasing Fear of Illness and embracing God’s Love for us. 

Our Lent Booklet reminds us today that our health is one of the most precious gift we have. “Let us remember that our thoughts and feelings are magnets that attract like conditions and situations into our lives. If we are fearful about physical ailments, we are actually sending out vibrations that will attract them to us. “Instead of being fearful, we can chose to focus on what we desire: good health and wholeness. 

Today, I invite you to contemplate on Rule No18 and the quote below. Let me know how practicing releasing fear of illness worked for you today. 

I will restore health to you, and your wounds I will heal,
says the Lord. Jeremiah 30:17

Today we affirm:  I accept health and wholeness as my divine birthright.
