The affirmations and prayer below are all from the book Spiritual Relationships by Paramhansa Yogananda.
Yogananda’s Affirmation to Attract a True Mate
To help us attract a true soul partnership, Yogananda offered the following affirmation, to be said daily after meditation:
Heavenly Father, bless me that I choose my life companion according to Thy law of perfect soul union.
If said faithfully and with deep concentration for 6 months, you will magnetize your soul companion, and if drawn to the wrong person, will permit God to remove that relationship from your life.
Yogananda’s Affirmation for Increasing Marital Happiness
Father, keep me and my husband perfectly united in body, mind and soul, and in ever-increasing happiness by Thy perfect law.
Yogananda’s Prayer for Expanding Love
O Divine Mother, teach me to use the gift of Thy love in my heart to love the members of my family more than myself. Bless me, that I may love my neighbors more than my family. Expand me, so that I love my country more than my neighbors, and that I love my world and all human brethren more than my country, neighbors, family and myself. Lastly, teach me to love Thee more than anything else, for it is Thy love with which I love everything. Without Thee, I cannot love anybody or anything.
Father Divine, teach me to enter through the portals of family love, and through the love of my friends, into the mansion of wider social love. Teach me, then, to pass through the doors of social love into the wider mansion of international love. Teach me to pass through the portals of international love into the endless territory of divine love, in which I may perceive all objects both animate and inanimate, as breathing and living by Thy love.
Teach me to tarry not at any of the fascinating but lesser shrines of family, social or international love. Teach me to pass beyond these minor gods, confined as their dominion is to small territories of selfish, human love, until passing through the last gate of selfless love, I enter into the endless territory of divine love, where I shall find all living, semi-living or sleeping things to be my own.”
