Earth Affirmations

“I felt my lungs inflate with the onrush of scenery—air, mountains, trees, people. I thought, "This is what it is to be happy.” 
~Sylvia Plath

Whatever your spiritual perspective, there is no denying that the Earth physically sustains us all every day. To me, that is worth celebrating and respecting.

It's a wonderful thing that we now set aside a day to honor the amazing miracle that is our Planet. It is also a beacon to recall what miracles we all are.

To set the Earth and her people against each other, seems equally foolish to wasting the planet's resources. We must find ways to balance our needs for commerce and advancement with the realistic resources provided by our planet.

The extremes on both ends fail to grasp the combined value that is the Earth and Humanity. Today may we find a renewed respect and hope for both!

Here are a few Earth Day affirmations for you. Be the person you came to the planet to be today.

  1. Today I celebrate both the diversity and the connectedness present here on Planet Earth.
  2. Today I care for the Earth by recognizing its miraculous nature and mine!
  3. Today I care for the Earth by remembering how small and connected we all are!
  4. Today I care for the Earth by taking care of the other creatures that share it with me.
  5. Today I care for the Earth by caring for my fellow human beings and expanding compassion on our planet.
  6. Today I bless and care for the Earth by using only what I need.
  7. Today and every day I bless and care the Earth, as she blesses and cares for me.
  8. I believe in a protected Earth and a free Humanity. I refuse to sacrifice either! My life is a catalyst for both!
  9.  I am one with the ocean. The ebb and flow of the sea merges with my breath to create a profound calm
  10. I am one with the forest. Being among the trees, I am completely grounded as I reach for the sky along with them.
  11. I am in touch with nature. Every day I feel my feet touch the Earth. I feel the wind fill my lungs. I feel the water bring life to every cell of my being. I feel the warm sunshine on my face. I am in touch with nature.

Stay inspired!
