So guess what? This morning I was standing in front of my mirror and I asked who is the prettiest in all the land and the mirror responded – but you of course. LOL
Wouldn’t it be great if we could easily do that, just stand in front of our mirror look into it and hear it declare out loud YOU’RE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL and believe it in our heart?
Imagine how you would feel if you nourished your body your mind and your spirit with good wonderful thoughts about yourself instead of thoughts that are constantly putting you down. I’m too big. I’m too small. My thighs are too fat too skinny. I wish I had a bigger, no smaller… My hair is just awful today. My… I can’t believe I said that, did that. Thoughts that create low self esteem and fill you with hatred for your own self. (Sound familiar?)
Instead, can you imagine how you would feel if that inner self talk would be the opposite and all you would constantly feed yourself would be uplifting, inspiring, encouraging words that will make you feel good, healthy, loving instead of feel awful about yourself that rob you of your magic and joy?
Seeing ourselves in a different way has the ability to alter our state of mind and change us at a cellular level. Believing that we are loving and wonderful. Giving our selves permission to not be perfect all the time changes our consciousness and that changes our reality about ourselves. When our inner reality is changed our outer reality is changed. What we see on the outside, how we view our surroundings and our world, is a reflection of what is inside of us. – In other words, what we think about ourselves inside of ourselves is what we project towards the outside and that is what is reflected back at us.
I remember years ago there was a quiz in Glamor magazine and the question was to name 10 things you liked about yourself. I couldn’t name even one. Although today I accept myself and love myself and fill myself with loving thoughts about myself, I do still struggle with low self esteem and there are times when that inner critic shows up and starts berating me hitting me with stuff like, I can’t believe you said that, how stupid, how inappropriate, what’s wrong with you? You should have been more compassionate, more understanding. OMG I can imagine what they must think of you. (Yayck!)
But what I do now when that negative, accusing inner critic shows up is, I recognize it, tell it to stop, to go outside and play in the park and leave me alone. – And while yes, this may not be easy I suggest you do it anyway, get that negativity out of your head, it’s creating havoc in your life. (more on how to in another blog post)
Go ahead, look at yourself in the mirror declare your beauty, turn that negative self talk around and declare your love for yourself, say just one wonderful thing to yourself, turn one put down word into an uplifting loving word.
When you are full of wonderful, inspiring, uplifting thoughts you fill the universe with the same.
I AM BEAUTIFUL!!!
I AM FABULOUS!!!
I AM LOVE!!!
See your reflection staring back at you and declare I’M AMAZING!!!
I LOVE ALL OF ME!!!
Listen to your inner self and become conscious of the thoughts you carry around with you all day long. They are the thoughts that are shaping everything about you. Your experiences, your actions, your choices, your relationships, how you feel every day.
They make up your reality.

A couple of days ago I was watching a Tony Robbins video and the older woman he was helping came across as masculine. (Tony even told her as such). After he helped her become aware of her feminine side again she radiated. I remember thinking how interesting it was to see a person transform right before ones eyes to a glowing human being filled with love. Great post Masha, Thanks
Diana, I really believe in the power of our thoughts. And the way we see ourselves rules our lives. Thank you. ❤
