Hello everyone, originally my article was published in the January issue of The Inspired Guide magazine (here), and I meant to post it here on 2/1 but totally forgot. If you haven’t already read it, hope you enjoy it, I personally love to say affirmations, they are a part of my daily ritual and a magical key in creating change.
How good would it feel if we knew that we could have calm, joy, confidence, greater health, prosperity, abundance…whatever we can imagine for ourselves, in every area of our life. How would that change the way we live every day? Yup I know – life would be amazing!
Well you know what? We can, and positive affirmations are the magical key that opens the door to the path of change.
Affirmations are love notes we give to ourselves. We’re already doing it all the time but we’re not conscious of it. We fill ourselves with negative self-talk that puts us down and disempowers us. I can’t do that. I’m not creative. I’ll never meet anyone. I’m not lucky. I rather have health than money. I’m so stupid. These are all affirmations, declarations of who we are and what we want. With every word we’re telling the Universe this is who I am and this is what I want, and the Universe who loves us, supports everything we declare for ourselves and gives us exactly that. So, if we want to create change in our life, we need to become conscious of the thoughts we nourish ourselves with, filling ourselves with positive loving self-talk that will heal us, elevate and empower us to live our best and highest life. I am healthy. Money flows to me easily and magically. I open my heart to love. I am worthy…
The secret to affirmations is that the more we feel and believe in what we’re saying the greater and the more powerful our words become. We cannot say “My heart is open to love” but underneath feel that “I’m just not lucky in that department”, and then expect love. We cannot say “I love money” but really feel afraid of money because we’re holding on to the belief that “money is evil”, and then expect money to come to us. We need to peel away the old beliefs we’ve been carrying around with us, most likely since childhood, and begin to affirm something new and awesome for ourselves.
We are limitless beings, with endless possibilities in front of us.
Positive – good for you – affirmations can up-level our mindset, fill us with love, elevate our consciousness, change the frequency of our vibration…Positive – good for you – affirmations are the magic to living a joy filled, sweeter life.
This is not to say that we can sit on our bed, say an affirmation and whala, a million dollars falls down on us, we still need to do our part in all of this. Our life is up to us, it unfolds into exactly what we believe it to be, it may not happen overnight, but with dedication and commitment to our self, focusing daily on thoughts that make us feel good, life has no choice but to meet us at that level.
A Google search will bring up loads of affirmations, but here are a few-
I am worthy of all that I desire.
I lack nothing, all my needs are fulfilled.
I am learning and improving every day more.
I am blessed, my life is blessed.
I am open to new possibilities.
I am happy.
I am open to receive miracles.
My body is functioning in perfect order for me.
I now have the perfect job.
I love my life.
The energy of 2020 is magnetic, not only is it a New Year but a new decade and I can’t think of anything better than to start with positive affirmations and making this the year of – YOU!!! Happy New Year!
