Positive affirmations are one of the most powerful tools in changing unconscious self-sabotaging behavior. They have the power to transform thoughts of not enough into overflowing abundance.
It is a very powerful place to operate from when all of a sudden there is no more victimization, guilt, or shame (both internally and externally). We have the power to not only change ourselves, but to make a profound impact on those around us.
At this point, you have become a spiritual warrior: vulnerable enough to share and process your feelings with safe people who have earned your trust, yet steadfast in moving forward through everything you once feared.
I write daily affirmations on a whiteboard in my cottage after I finish my meditation each morning. This exercise of writing daily affirmations, the physical activity of putting pen to paper (or in this case marker to board) really helps embed more positive thoughts in my mind.
If you think about it: we receive tons of negative messages throughout our day. The news echos injustice. We see children being mistreated by ill-equipped parents, and so on.
I am learning daily how to become my own life coach. By centering myself for close to 30 minutes in daily meditation, I create space for a power greater than myself to show me how to operate in this world as an adult with the joy of a child.
It has taken quite a bit of time, and still there are false messages that like to creep in to tell me I am doing it wrong, I am not good enough, or I failed at (fill in the blank) so why don’t I just give up?
The reality is peace and serenity are a conscious decision, not an option based on external circumstances.
