“Affirmations are the beginning point of change.” ~ Louise Hay
I wholeheartedly believe in positive affirmations being transformational.
I first learned about affirmations from Louise Hay, and to be honest at first I was afraid to say them. Saying positive, uplifting, encouraging, or healing words to myself felt like something taboo. I didn’t know it then but, by making that conscious decision to say them, even while I was filled with fear, taboo fear, I was beginning on a journey of healing and changing my life in ways that I couldn’t even imagine because I started to tap into the law of the universe in a positive way.
As I grow my affirmations change to support me where I am at. I change words, I let go of words, and not a day goes by without me affirming who I am, what I am, and how I am. To me an affirmation is a declaration that I affirm about myself. I’m telling the universe, this is the truth of who I am, and what I want, and how I see myself. And then I believe wholeheartedly in the magick of the affirmation I’m declaring. This is the big secret behind every affirmation, no affirmation will work if you say it, but don’t believe in it, if you say – money flows to me easily and magically – and inwardly you believe completely the opposite, this will never work, guaranteed it will not. And of course you have to take action here and do the work, you can’t just sit on your bed and say an affirmation and expect fire works to go off.
Affirmations have helped me to overcome challenging, self sabotaging, negative thoughts. Realize dreams. Change negative energy at work. Help me heal, eliminate stress…they have been transformational.
Magick and miracles have appeared in my life because of affirmations and they can make a difference in your life too.
Sometimes we get so comfortable in our ways, in our habits, in our same thoughts that we don’t want any change, we want to stay in the same comfy of the familiar, like being wrapped up in an old familiar blanket.
But the thing is that if we resist anything new and we don’t invite change into our life and we stay closed minded to any new ideas and possibilities, we’re not opening new doors within and growing.
