I first heard of the Already Principle when I read the write up for Louise Hay’s, Life Loves You: 7 Spiritual Practices to Heal Your Life. As I read more, I realized that I had signed up for The Already Principle a few years ago.
What does The Already Principle Mean?
As I understand it, we have within us all the wisdom we need to make our way through life. A spiritual DNA, perhaps? If we dare to look deep within ourselves, we will find that we are already the person we want to be. Our journey through life is to allow that person to shine forth.
Everything has already been made available for us to reach our spiritual goals. We already are provided with all we need to journey through life. And we have the Divine Guidance that will take us there. If only we allow ourselves to be led.
How does this translate into my life?
I’ve seen the evidence of The Already Principle at work when I diligently write my Morning Pages. Three pages of free flow, unedited writing. Through it flows wisdom and healing from deep within. Often, past hurtful experiences will come to the fore and as I keep writing, I see how they all fit into my life. Life lessons, if you will.
I find answers to problem situations. I find more things to be grateful for. I become aware of areas I need to focus on.
By doing the Morning Pages I feel more in touch with myself and assured of the Divine Presence guiding me through the day and through my life. I become more mindful of my intentions and thoughts through the day.
The Morning Pages help me see The Already Principle at work in my life. Truly I have ENOUGH.

What you can do
Life Loves You: 7 Spiritual Practices to Heal Your Life has a great suggested exercise:
Spend 15 minutes a day, for the next seven days, cultivating an even greater willingness to receive. One way life is loving me right now is…Don’t edit your responses. Just let them flow. Once you have written down at least ten responses, review your list and let it sink in how life is loving you right now.
If you try it, let me know what comes up for you and how it helps you.
You have already been given everything you need for your journey in this life. No matter which road you take, divine guidance will meet you there. ~ Louise Hay

Monday Musings, writing in the morning always helps, Corinne. Thanks for sharing for such words always give us hope no matter how down we are.
What a wonderfully inspiring post Corinne. I’ve been a big fan of Julia Cameron and the morning pages for a long time and Louise Hay is absolutely brilliant.
Never realized there was a Luise Hay site too. Guess I got to heal my thought process.

Yes, there is.
Warning – the process of healing is hard work and never quite finished, Ira. Wishing you well on the journey.

Hi Corinne! I have been reading Louise Hay for YEARS now but had not heard of The Already Principle. Fortunately I have been doing something similar for quite a while now but I like how you start it out and let it flow. And I’ve also been doing morning pages for almost 20 years now (YIKES! 20 years!) and can so attest to their power. Putting the two practices together is perfect. Thanks for the thoughts! AND thanks for the linkup! ~Kathy

Years ago I wrote a memoir about living with spina bifida. It was an eye-opener. I learned so much about myself and others through that writing experience. It is so true that this writing exercise can teach you about yourself, help provide insight and solutions to problems, and help you grow. Thanks for the post. Take care.

Funny, I just read something very similar to Morning Pages on another blog, writergrannysworld. The only difference, her’s was focused around a single word. I really like this idea and the concept of Already. Thanks Corinne! ♥

Love the theme,,get personal. Guess, I’ve vented out and wouldn’t be wrong to call it writing as a journey of self-discovery:)
Thanks for giving us the opportunity, Corinne:)
Daily free writing is powerful. I don’t always do it now, but if I start to feel overwhelmed and my head is full, I make it a priority to do free writing at the beginning of the day. It helps me clear my mind and allows space for me to be guided.

God has endowed me with all I need to serve Him and love others. He has already made me the person, He wants me to be. I just have to rest and live out the life He has created. I love that in my DNA I have what I need to connect to Him. Such a miracle. Thanks for reminding me of this beautiful truth by which to live.
