I was recently participating in a discussion on Periscope when a friend did the unthinkable. She challenged me to do my very first scope on the topic “I Am”. No she didn’t challenge me. She double dog dared me. Shit got serious.
See, I’m a writer and I like to hide behind the key board when getting my message out there and putting my face in video is just so far out of my comfort zone. I don’t mind talking face to face to people and I even have gotten use to instructing fitness classes in a group but something about putting my face in the little close up box scares the shit out of me. I mentor a few young girls and I thought about what I would tell them if it was one of them and I realized I would tell them that life begins outside their comfort zone. If they really want to succeed they need to do the uncomfortable and then I would say, that is your limiting belief telling you that you can’t do it. You know what, I will.
So what would any good writer do before she jumps into something uncomfortable with two feet. Why, write about it of course. So here we go!
The power of affirmations and using I am. I think therefore I am.
I am- is the most powerful manifestation affirmation there is. When you say I am, you are telling the universe you are whatever you want to to be. Whatever you put out there will shape your reality.
When using affirmation and I am, you want to focus on what you do want and not what you don’t want. See, your subconscious doesn’t know the difference between I want and I don’t want. So if you are focusing on I don’t want stress, your subconscious only hears I want stress. And I know that isn’t what you want.
When setting your affirmation, you want to be as clear, concise, and specific as possible.
I am- is a statement of who/what you are. What personal positive attributes, strengths, and talents do you have or want to have.
-I am perfectly healthy in mind, body, and spirit.
-I am a genius and use my wisdom daily.
-I am passionate about everything I do.
I can- is a statement of your potential. It is a positive expression of your ability to accomplish goals. Add the word easily to make your affirmation more powerful.
-I can love my partner unconditionally
-I can stop smoking easily.
-I can grow my business and be financially free.
I will- is a statement of positive change in your life.
This is a success prophecy. sometimes you can remove the word will to bring the statement to the present.
-I will love and nurture myself better each day.
-I will gain more confidence each day.
-I will do my visualizations daily.
I love my positive I AM affirmations every single day. I write them out every morning and I repeat them to myself out loud every day on way to work. I then repeat them throughout the day whenever I feel doubt creeping in either out loud or in my head.
Remember, you can’t just tell yourself things and expect them to happen. First you have to believe they will happen, you really have to feel it, and then you have to take action so they will. Opportunities come to us in many forms and you have to be ready to jump when they do.
I hope this was enough to get you really interested in positive affirmations and The Law of Attraction. I’m going to be writing more on it soon.
Follow my blog and check back often and if you are on Periscope look me up. Apparently tomorrow’s the day I do my first scope!
