40 Days – Day 24

40 Days of Lent – From Release to Embrace

Rule 24

Hell is in the here and now. So is heaven. Quit worrying about hell or dreaming about heaven, as they are both presents inside this very moment. Every time we fall in Love, we ascend to heaven. Every time we hate, envy, or fight someone, we tumble straight into the fires of hell.”

Listen to the Rule on Youtube:


Today, we are releasing Negative thinking and embracing God’s Love for us. 

Our Lent Booklet reminds us today that “becoming aware of and releasing our negativity is essential to our growth”.  It is often easier to spot negativity in others, however, we are asked to remember that negative thinking is habitual. Positivity is more than just the absence of negativity; it is a practice of remembering our divine nature and all our attributes in God.

Today, I invite you to contemplate on Rule No24 and the quote below. Let me know how practicing releasing negative thinking worked for you today. 

For mortals it is impossible, but for God all things are possible. Matthew 19:2

Today we affirm: I release habitual negativity and embrace infinite possibility.
