Read by Swami Kriyananda, these 52 affirmations and prayers—one for each week of the year—will help you strengthen positive qualities in yourself such as good health, will power, forgiveness, security, happiness, and many others.

Health care professionals know that our thoughts influence our physical, mental, and emotional health, for better or for worse. We routinely enlist the help of psychologists and medications to overcome our deeply rooted, harmful thoughts. But we also have the power to change our thoughts ourselves, in ways that complement or offer an alternative to these often only marginally effective, and sometimes side-effect laden, treatments.

This inspirational book is the ultimate self-help manual—a powerful tool for personal transformation. Author Swami Kriyananda teaches that negative thoughts exist in the subconscious mind, mentally whispering thousands of times each day, “I am afraid, I am tired, I am angry . . .” To successfully overcome these thoughts, they must be faced in their own territory.

Affirmation is a proven method of influencing the subconscious mind, and replacing negative thoughts with positive statements of well-being. Each of the affirmations in this book reaches the subconscious in a language it can hear and understand. Where other methods fail, these affirmations are sure to succeed.

Swami Kriyananda

Swami Kriyananda (J. Donald Walters, 1926–2013) was a direct disciple of the great spiritual master Paramhansa Yogananda (author of the classic Autobiography of a Yogi), a bestselling author, and an internationally known lecturer and composer. Widely recognized as one of the world's foremost authorities on meditation and yoga, he taught these principles and techniques to hundreds of thousands of students around the world.

In 1968 Kriyananda founded Ananda Village in Nevada City, California, dedicated to spreading the spirit of friendship, service, and community around the globe. Ananda is recognized as one of the most successful intentional communities in the world, and more than 1,000 people reside in Ananda communities in the US, India, and Italy. The European retreat and community located in Assisi, Italy, also serves Ananda meditation groups in Europe and Russia.

Ananda Village is home to The Expanding Light, a world-renowned guest retreat facility where thousands visit annually for renewal or instruction in many aspects of meditation, yoga, and the spiritual life. The nearby Ananda Meditation Retreat, located on Ananda's first property, functions both as a retreat and as the site for Ananda's Institute of Alternative Living.

An advocate of simple living and high thinking, Swami Kriyananda's more than 140 books cover a wide range of subjects emphasizing the need to live wisely by one's own experience of life, and not by abstract theories or dogmas.

A composer since 1964, Kriyananda wrote over 400 musical works. His music is inspiring, soothing, and uplifting. Many of his later albums are instrumental works with brief affirmations or visualizations. Chuck Dilberto of Awareness Magazine wrote, “[His] words and music are full of his life and light. His sole intention is to heal, something we could all use during these chaotic times.”

Through Crystal Clarity Publishers, his works have sold over 3 million copies worldwide and have been translated into more than 25 languages.
