The outgoing year 2020 has offered many challenges, as well as opportunities for growth. There has been much upheaval in the business world, yet a new lifestyle is emerging in which many people can now work from home, saving on commute times and subsequently freeing up time for family life, spiritual pursuits, and personal development.
Those, of course, are positive impacts. But others have lost their businesses or they are at least in the throes of great revision. Healing prayer and affirmations can go a great way in weathering financial storms and help to offset any adverse effects in our lives. No matter what is going on, the basic laws of spiritual magnetism are still at work. Stay positive in your outlook and affirm success. This will help you to be nimble on your feet and able to manifest and recognize a new direction that is helpful to you. God’s love is eternal and always operational.
…Every day in the New Year must become an altar for the God of new living, new achievements in wisdom, and new joy. Every day in the New Year must bring hope and cheer to yourself and all humanity…
…Bury the bad habit of failure in the tomb of the old year and reincarnate your life energy in the vitality of the New Year. May the New Year spread the example and message of your renewed life and renewed power unto all Creation… Paramhansa Yogananda
These words were written in 1937, well into the Depression. People needed to dig deep for positive energy. The full text can be found here: New Year Message for 1937.
A new year is a fresh start…especially if we take action to create a new beginning. Paramhansa Yogananda recommended affirming the following daily for general healing, It’s a perfect New Year resolution to affirm this every day for 2021. Positive words create positive magnetism.
Healing prayer affirmation by Paramhansa Yogananda
Focus deeply at the spiritual eye, and repeat three times:
“I will with my own will, which flows from the divine will, to be healthy to be well, to be prosperous and spiritual, to be well, to be well.”
Thank you for your healing prayers on behalf of others. As we send positive energy to individuals in need, we become a beacon light that blesses our own life circumstances and, indeed, the whole world.

We Demand as Thy Children – from Whispers from Eternity by Paramhansa Yogananda
Thou art our Father. We are made in Thine image. We are Thy children. We neither ask nor pray as beggars but demand of Thee, as Thy children, the gifts of wisdom, salvation, health, happiness, and eternal joy. Whether naughty or good, we are still Thy children, all of us. Help us to perceive and understand, inwardly, Thy will for us. Teach us the independent use of our human will (since Thou gavest it to us to use freely), attuned to Thy wisdom‐guided will.
