What is an affirmation?
An affirmation is a short, powerful statement used to consciously affect your thoughts in a positive way. We have an estimated 50,000 thoughts a day and most of them are not pretty. Often, we are very critical of ourselves. We would not dream of talking to another the way we “speak” to ourselves in our inner dialogue.
Can you invest one minute a day on yourself to consciously improve your thoughts and your life this month? Can you afford not to?
Your invitation is to embrace this exercise of reciting an affirmation each day during the month of March. Doing this will help to positively transform your thoughts, and your life, for the better. If you are new to the practice of affirmations, welcome. If you are seasoned in this practice, may you be blessed as well, dear one.
Traditionally, the month of March in the northern hemisphere is when spring begins and with it comes the promise of new growth, hope, and opportunity.
Give yourself the gift of new growth, hope, and opportunity by reciting these affirmations daily.
Let’s profoundly change the trajectory of our thoughts with these affirmations and continue making the year 2018 transformational with a powerful shift of consciousness.
An affirmation only needs to feel about 50% true for it to resonate within you, dear one. By stating an affirmation, you are calling that intention to you using the powerful Law of Attraction. By speaking the affirmation out loud, it becomes even more powerful as you activate your throat chakra.
Affirmations that begin with the words “I am” are especially powerful. Whatever follows the “I am” becomes your truth.
Be vigilant with the statements you think and say about yourself.
You want to select empowering statements that improve the energy vibration of your life. For example, if you say, “I am tired. I am sick. I am broke. I am not worthy. I am stuck,” you are calling more of that low energy toward you.
You can shift those thoughts with more energizing and empowering statements such as “I am getting the rest I need. I am taking time to replenish myself. I am good with money. I am excited about…” These slight shifts have a powerful, transformative effect on the quality of your day and your life.
Please join me in reciting, reflecting and/or pondering the list below; one affirmation each day for the month of March.
