Affirmations for Overcoming Life's Challenges

A timeless classic, The Road Less Travelled is a landmark work that has inspired  millions of us around the world. It definitely inspired me. When I first read it, I knew that I was indeed on the “road less travelled”, and was never destined to live an “ordinary” life. Drawing on the experiences of his career as a psychiatrist, the author M. Scott Peck combines both scientific and spiritual views to guide us through the difficult, painful times in life by showing us how to confront our problems through the principles of discipline, love and grace.

Intuitively pick a number between 1 and 9, to see which inspirational saying and oil blend is choosing you today:

1. Life is difficult. This is a great truth, one of the greatest truths.
It is a great truth because once we truly see this truth, we transcend it.
Once we truly know that life is difficult-once we truly understand and
accept it-then life is no longer difficult. Because once it is accepted,
the fact that life is difficult no longer matters.
Oil Blend: Acceptance

2. It is in this whole process of meeting and solving problems that life has
its meaning. Problems call forth our courage and our wisdom;
indeed, they create our courage and our wisdom.
Oil Blend: Transformation

3. If you work long enough and hard enough to understand yourself, you
will come to discover that this vast part of your mind, of which you now
have little awareness, contains riches beyond imagination.
Oil Blend: Awaken

4. When I genuinely love myself, or somebody else, I am extending myself.
And when I am extending myself, I am growing. The more I love, the
longer I love, the larger I become. Genuine love is self-replenishing.
Oil Blend: Joy


5. Our view of reality is like a map with which to negotiate the
terrain of life. The more effort we make to appreciate and perceive
reality, the larger and more accurate our maps will be. Only a relative
and fortunate few continue until the moment of death,
exploring the mystery of what is true.
Oil Blend: Highest Potential

6. If we feel ourselves valuable, then we will feel our time to be valuable,
and if we feel our time to be valuable, then we will want to use it well.
Oil Blend: Abundance

7. Perception of the miraculous requires no faith or assumptions.
It is simply a matter of paying close attention to the givens of life.
The true wonder of the world is available everywhere, in the minutest
parts of our bodies, in the vast expanses of the cosmos, and in the
intimate interconnectedness of these and all things…
Oil Blend: Present Time

8. Through grace we are helped not to stumble, and through grace
we know that we are being welcomed. What more can we ask?
Oil Blend: Surrender

9. You are a beautiful and beloved individual. It is good to be you.
You will be loved no matter what you do, as long as you are you.
Oil Blend: Sensation
