The Secret of Affirmations

“Affirmations are the beginning point of change.” ~ Louise Hay

I wholeheartedly believe in positive affirmations being transformational.

2affirmI 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.

I’d love to hear from you.

Using the Law of the Universe

The law of the universe states that what you place your focus and attention on will multiply.

Every day place your attention on being grateful, even if what is showing up in front of you may not be in all rational ways anything that you could consider grateful.  If someone cuts you off on the road, just think about it, you’re not hurt, it could have been worse, so be grateful.  I am grateful that I am safe, and let it go.

gratefulness

Or, have you noticed that when something goes wrong and you focus on the wrong only more wrong things follow and than at the end of the day you say, what a day everything went wrong, first this happened and than I got late to the meeting, and… it was just one of those days where everything went wrong.

When something happens and you think about it, and you carry it with you and you’re giving it attention and you’re mad about it, what you’re doing is you’re now in a lower vibration and as you’re holding on to that energy it’s like you’re telling the universe, yes, I want more of this.  And from here more things appear for you to continue in that same low vibration.

So, when something goes not your way, find something about it to be grateful for, or just let it go and say to yourself, everything is working out perfectly for me today.  Thank you universe.

I’d love to hear your thoughts.

A Note From the Universe

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.

closed minded

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.

Have an awesome weekend!

How to Get Yourself Out of a Funky Mood

Life happens and we all fall into the pit of – funky mood – at times.  When that happens here’s one way that you can pull yourself out when you realize that you have fallen down the pit of funky mood.

Writing

Write out a gratitude/pick me up list.

Write down ten things that you’re grateful for about yourself.  And don’t worry it doesn’t have to be perfect, there is no such thing, there is no right or wrong.  This list is for you, don’t worry about grammar, or punctuation, or what someone else will think.  And yes, let yourself be totally – selfish and self-absorbed – who cares.  This is a self-love/pick me up out of funk letter to yourself.  So, take three deep breaths, put a smile on your face and start writing –

Some examples:

I am grateful that I got my nails done.

I am grateful for my beautiful hair.

I am grateful that I am awesome.

I am grateful for my mind.

I am grateful for my breakfast.

I am grateful for my health.

I am grateful that I am safe and secure.

I am grateful that I am spectacular.

You can also write:

I am powerful.

I am strong.

I am confident.

I am precious.

No negatives allowed here and don’t limit yourself it doesn’t have to be fabulous, you’re not in competition with anyone. Find things that you can say about yourself.  I am a great baker.  I love to read magazines.  You’re just going to write out ten things that you’re grateful for, pick me ups that will uplift your spirit.  I am grateful that I lost 4 pounds.  I am grateful that I walked up the stairs…If you have more than ten write them, and if you don’t have ten, then just find five or three.

When you’re done, read your list out loud to yourself, but don’t read it like a robot, read it and let each gratitude/pick me up seep into you, embrace it, feel it to be the truth of you, give thanks for it.  Read your list again throughout the day, read it as many times as you need to, modify it if it feels good.

Writing out a gratitude/pick me up list will change your funky mood to – JOY!

The Benefits of Buying Yourself Flowers

Everything has a reason and a purpose in this universe and flowers are no exception, they are magical, mystical beings that support and love us in many ways.

When I bring fresh flowers home, I can feel a change in energy as soon as I walk in, I can feel the atmosphere change.  Actually, I can feel something as soon as I start looking at them in the store, something changes energetically in my body.  My heart opens, I’m overcome with a feeling of joy and love, there’s a calm that comes over me and they put a smile on my face.

For years I sat and waited for someone else to bring me flowers, I never thought of flowers being something that I can give to myself, it was something that someone else gave you for a special occasion.  Once when I was visiting a friend I noticed that she had flowers in a couple of places in her home and when I asked who got her the flowers she said no one, she bought them herself.  It was like a light bulb turned on in my head.  WOW!, I love flowers so much but I never thought of buying them for myself.

I’ve been buying myself flowers ever since.  Although I have to admit that there are times that I have flowers every week, and than there are times, and I don’t know why, that I stop for a while, but they have become a part of my overall self-care/self-love must have, and I never go for too long without them.

Just some of the benefits – flowers can brighten up a room and your mood.  Because they oxygenate the air, they help our concentration and memory, which in turn boosts our brain cells and makes us feel better.

Just looking at them the color, the loveliness makes us feel happy and peaceful.

They can also have a fundamental impact on our health, they reduce stress, aid in helping us have peace of mind, sleep better and just overall feel better.  They help us feel less anxious or depressed. And they even have the power to increase our productivity and boost our creativity, and who doesn’t want that?

We’re blessed to have different flowers for every season, and I love having them in my home.  It’s become a part of my ritual of welcoming in a new season and I feel more connected with nature in their presence, oh and one other thing, they raise the energy and vibration all around me.  If you’re thinking that you have to spend a lot of money on them, you don’t.  I usually buy them in the supermarket and the price is usually less than $10, I bought the ones in the first picture for $6.99.

I hope I’ve inspired you to buy yourself flowers, make them a part of your self-care/self-love ritual and feel their magical mystical powers embrace you.

Flower Blessings

Empowering Words to Self

I sometimes post to my FB account (here) and to my Instagram account (here) but I don’t share it here with you.  So, I decided to share with you this, note to myself, because sometimes I tend to forget how POWERFUL I am.

i am

I AM VALUABLE – BRAVE – COURAGEOUS!!!

I’ve written it out on sticky notes and placed one on my fridge, one on my computer, and one on my bathroom mirror so I can see it throughout the day, first thing in the morning when I wake, and last thing at night before going to bed.

Empower yourself with uplifting words – you deserve it!

Blessings
