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.

Do We Need External Validation

The greatest gift that we can give to ourself is to know ourself and believe in our own self-worth.  I think that’s one of our purposes in this life, to grow within and uncover the layers and layers to get to the core of who we are, believe and know our true authentic selves.

validation

How much do you hold yourself back because you don’t believe in your ability?

Too often we have a great idea but we don’t unfold it because we fear that it’s not good enough.  We fear rejection or criticism, and our ideas and dreams never come to light.  We disempower ourselves and doubt our own self-wroth, we sit and wait for that validation, for someone to come and tell us how wonderful we are, how brilliant our ideas are.  We yearn for that outside confirmation that will give us that go ahead sign, yes you can do it validation, before we dare to go after what we want or share our dreams with the world.   And yes, it’s great when others validate us and affirm our self-worth and tell us how wonderful we are, that’s all good and great, take it, thank them but that should not be what validates us.  Our validation should be from within ourselves, we need to know it in our own hearts, in our bones, that’s where our power comes from, that’s where the magic lies.

We are sacred beings and we are worthy of all that our heart wants and desires.  We’re a star within the cosmos, we each have great value and we each are worthy, just as we are.  We need to not only know that, but embody it, believe it, we are the miracle we’re looking for.

When we know our own self worth we are empowered with our own self validation.

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

July A Message from Hummingbird

I love pulling a Tarot or Oracle card on the first of each month and letting it be a guiding energy for the month.  On 7/1 I asked what energy do I need for this month and Hummingbird showed up and OMG absolutely perfect, just what I needed a reminder of.

When Hummingbird shows up it’s a reminder that we need to bring joy into our days, to lighten up, take ourselves out of a rut we may be in.  Hummingbird also reminds us to look at our energy levels and that we need to raise our vibration, a good question to ask ourselves is – are we wasting our energy on worry, fear, on not having enough?  And when this magical bird appears we can expect synchronicities to happen.  Hummingbirds also symbolize healing, agility, playfulness and this is just a few things.

For me, I have a tendency to fall into the place of ‘serious’ and not even realize it.  And right now, as I’m going through this recovery from surgery, let me tell you it’s not hard at all to go day after day and not be aware of that I’m missing the little things that bring great joy into my day.  So for Hummingbird to show up, what a blessing.

So this is my intention for this month, to make myself aware to bring joy into every day. Doesn’t matter what it is, putting my feet up and drinking a cup of tea and feeling the joy in it.   Listening to the birds chirping in the morning.  Or buying myself flowers…Whatever it is, I’ll be bringing joy intentionally to my days even if it is for just a couple of moments.

When we set the intention and become aware, we can find a moment of sweetness in every day.  If you resonate with Hummingbirds message, join me in intentionally bringing a moment of joy into your every day, it will make a difference in your wellbeing.  Let me know what you think, leave a comment, I love to know.

This beautiful card is from the Mystical Shaman Oracle card deck by, Alberto Violloldo, Colette Baron-Reid, & Marcela Lobos.
