The word manifest means to display or show a specific quality or feeling by one’s acts or appearance – in the complicated, crazy and sometimes crazy-making world we live in, we need to display the qualities of a spiritual warrior.
Set the clear pattern – encourage the warrior within to come to the forefront and display the strength and perseverance synonymous with warriors. Affirm the qualities that you want to display, and then give them room to manifest. Try saying these lines out loud:
There is a strong warrior inside me. This warrior inside helps me overcome serious obstacles and destroys my enemies. My spirit takes on every challenge with glee because I know I am stronger than than any challenge I face.
How do you see difficult situations? Do you bemoan your circumstances and fold under the pressure, or are you more likely to see the difficult situation as a battle that must be won and that you’re willing to fight for?
Affirm, out loud, what you are striving for and what you believe:
My inner spiritual warrior fights for my prosperous and productive future. I have the ability to shape my actions, my efforts, my thoughts and my emotions, and mold them into my dream.
I use mindfulness to keep my inner warrior strong – paying attention to my life and focusing on my goals. I notice the little things that can lead to big challenges for my spirit if I let them. I prepare ahead of time to do battle with them and achieve the victory that will keep me moving forward.
Every opportunity you encounter is a way to grow your spirit and your commitment, and each battle tests your inner warrior. As with consistent exercise and effort, your spirit grows stronger with each test. Try to see difficult people and circumstances not as insurmountable roadblocks, but instead as tests for your warrior’s soul that you have the strength to overcome, or the wisdom to go around.
I use my suffering to learn lessons that may help others. I use my inner spiritual warrior to uplift those who are ready to accept my help.
I cultivate positivity for my inner spiritual warrior, even as I recognize negativity exists.
I acknowledge the dark and the light sides, so my warrior spirit is able to handle both. I allow my feelings to flow freely without hurting my spirit. I know that recognizing my emotions is part of the plan.
