one of the most powerful forces there is’
I am excited to do something different
Step out of your comfort zone and try something new! What have you wondered about doing in the past, but haven’t had the courage to try? Aim for something small that you can accomplish in a single day. Try a new hair color or a new hair style. Test drive the sports car of your dreams. Sign up for dance classes. Get in the habit of trying something new on a regular basis. Each successful experience will build your confidence and motivate you to try something else!
abundance surrounds me
All around us are messages that lead us to believe our lives are ones of scarcity and lack and that competition with one another is the only way we can truly succeed. However, when you begin to witness the world, standing in the middle of a majestic forest or scanning the shelves at the grocery store, you will see that the entire universe presents itself to you and is yours to enjoy. Appreciate all that you already have.
I see a gift in every moment
In life, it is fairly certain that you will experience difficult and challenging passages. Within each of these moments you are given a special seed of opportunity, a gift. Many times, this point of view can be difficult to embrace in the midst of what appears to be a setback. Today, spend your time opening your mind and heart to the blessings that come to you in disguise.
I am protected
You are always safe. Give up trying to control the uncontrollable. People often fear that something bad will happen. In fact, they have experienced that fear over and over and over. Yet they fail to notice that nothing happened, not really, except that they survived just fine. Nothing really happened in reality, just a bunch of silly thoughts. The truth is that you’ll be just fine and totally capable of creating a good life. You can create a good life, period! You are protected.
my heart knows the answer
We all carry long-held beliefs about our identity and character. Most of them were given to us by others. These ideas influence your perceptions about what you really want in life. Give yourself permission to let go of that. Let your heart and soul speak to you. Listen to your inner song. What do you really want? Let your heart lead the way. All of the answers you seek live within. All you have to do is listen.
I am focused on what I want
It’s difficult to arrive at a destination if you don’t know where you are headed. This is equally true for your life journey. In order to realize your deepest desires, it is essential to identify exactly what you want. Then stay focused on that intention with dedication, focus, and awareness. Bring your heartfelt desires into laser focus and put your attention on what you envision. Align yourself with the universe to reach your intended destination and open to all opportunities that help you realize your dreams.
is my time
It is not uncommon to set a goal and then push forward with your eyes so fixed on the destination that you become unaware of the terrain on which you travel. Practice navigating the path toward your destination with fluidity and balance. Remain attentive to your goal with present moment awareness. Stay present in the now. That increases your awareness of the many supportive cues and opportunities that arise along your path. Staying connected to the present enables you to enjoy every moment of the journey, the people you meet and the experiences you can enjoy with them.
I create my reality
Over the past several days, you have defined what you want in life. You have responded to your heart’s deepest dreams and desires, and you opened up to the many opportunities that arise in the present moment. Now it is time to develop clear intentions for your life. Attention energizes and intention transforms. You are the master of your own life, your reality. Therefore, as you place your attention on what it is that you want, you set your intentions to orchestrate everything in your life to help you achieve your goals. The universe conspires to support your every step.
I am pleased with where I am
We all have a long way to go. Maybe you get discouraged about how far you still have to go. Adopted a new attitude: ‘You are not where you need to be, but you are not where you used to be. You are okay and you are on your way!’ Stay on the path. Just keep on keeping on and be pleased with your progress. Keep walking the walk one step at a time.
I believe, I trust, I let go
When you hold tightly to a goal, it often becomes elusive. We may say to ourselves, ‘I want this so badly. I can see my goal. Why can’t I reach it?’ The answer lies in detachment. Detach yourself from the outcome of whatever you desire. Let go and gently surrender to the wisdom of uncertainty. In your willingness to step into the unknown, to step into the field of all possibilities, you give yourself over to the creative mind that orchestrates the dance of the universe. Trust that what you desire will come to you.
gratitude is my prayer
Focus on gratitude. When you appreciate all that you have in life, your ego steps out of the way, inviting even greater abundance into your life. Practice gratitude for your life as a human being, for the air you breathe, for your magnificent body, and the beauty of being alive. That is a wonderful place to start. From this point of view, you can expand your gratitude outward, appreciating everything and everyone you encounter.
serving others serves me
When you serve others from a place of love, you are also serving yourself. For many of us, when we think of service, we envision great feats, sacrifices, large philanthropic donations, and other grand gestures. Service can be much more accessible in your daily life. Giving to others through service is simply recognizing what you do best in any given moment and offering that as a gift to someone else. A smile, some help… Giving can be that simple.
I have wings to fly
You were born with potential. You were born with goodness and trust. You were born with ideals and dreams. You were born with greatness. You were born with wings. You are not meant for crawling, so don’t. You have wings. Learn to use them and fly! Our purpose is to fulfill this potential for greatness that we are born with. You were brought to this earth to create something that will live forever. Spread your wings and fly!
I am a miracle of life
Begin to let go of self-judgment as you experience the wholeness and truth of your essential nature. Open your heart to yourself and let yourself feel the love that has been there all along. Take time to connect with and feel how much your soul wants you to know that you are loved and appreciated. Look into your own eyes and see your timelessness.
I am worth loving because I exist
‘You’re imperfect, and you’re wired for struggle, but you are worthy of love and belonging.’
We are all perfectly imperfect just as we are. Be human. Be perfectly imperfect. Be you. Just be.
I welcome change
Being on the verge of change is probably one of the hardest places to be. At every fork in the road there are decisions that need to be made and questions about the outcome. The slate is blank and the only choices are to stay where you are or move forward. What choice will you make? How you do deal with that fear of the unknown? Do you allow the “what if’s” to consume your thoughts and dictate your actions? Or do you open yourself up to something different? How you change is how you succeed! Today, welcome change!
I make my own choices
The one thing that you truly control in life is your own decisions. Make sure that you exercise your ability to choose. Make sure you choose your own path. Otherwise, life will make those choices for you. Ironically, too many people make their decisions by not choosing. Don’t let an option pass you by because you don’t make a timely decision. Don’t let the fear of making a wrong choice paralyze you. There are very, very few decisions in life that are not changeable. You can choose again.
I am my best friend
From a young age we were taught that if we treated others with love, respect, and kindness then they would reciprocate by treating us the same way. However, there is a problem with this belief. It does not address how we are supposed to treat ourselves. In order to truly have a loving, supportive, and long-lasting relationship with someone else, you need to learn how to be your own best friend first. The more you truly love yourself and the more you put that love into action—the more you will love and enjoy your own company. If we all became our own best friend, think about how much kinder our world would be!
I feel good about myself
Real beauty isn’t a secret ingredient in ultra long-lasting lip gloss, and you surely won’t find it hidden in the cosmetics aisle at the drug store. Its the knowledge that you like yourself, and that you’re true to your own heart. It’s having eyes that sparkle with compassion and see the best in people. It’s having lips that speak strongly when you’ve been pushed around and gently when someone else has been. The most beautiful trait you can have is confidence! Figure out what you like about yourself and let it shine. That’s what real beauty is all about.
I allow myself to dream
At some point in their lives most people have had dreams. They either gave up or daily living caught them by surprise. Do you allow yourself to dream? Really dream? Huge, almost unimaginable wishes for yourself? Or do you keep your dreams small, realistic, and what you believe to be ‘doable’? Are your dreams ‘safe’, easily to achieve with little fear standing in your way. By doing that you are setting limits for yourself. Dreams can be huge, wild, crazy, scary… And really, shouldn’t they be? It’s those wild, unimaginable dreams that really help you appreciate who it is that you are. They give you purpose. Something to reach for. Allow yourself to dream!
I am free to choose whatever I want
Everything you do in life is a choice, and most of us realize that. But what most people don’t seem to realize is that everything we don’t do in life is also a choice. Anytime you want to, you can change your life, but just wanting to change is not enough. Doing nothing and wishing things would change is the course most people choose. You must make a choice to change. And today you are free to choose whatever you want!
I am a gift to the world
You were born to be sensitive, to be competitive or to be loud. You were born to love deeply or to think before you speak. You were born to be joyful or serious or unpredictable. You were born that way and you are a gift to this world. Embrace yourself and be thankful for the big and brilliant parts of you that make you unique!
I allow myself to play and enjoy life
Remember that work is not the only facet to your life. Learn to enjoy whatever it is that you do. Regardless of how important or trivial the task may seem. If you run a major world corporation, clean your house or celebrate your birthday, take time to enjoy yourself right now. Life is short. Play and enjoy it to the fullest!
I choose happiness
Everyday life presents you with a menu from which to choose: peace or anger, sadness or joy, forgiveness or revenge and love versus hate. Your response to life’s challenges, will determine your perception of your own happiness. When things go wrong, don’t go with them! Happiness is a choice that you make every moment of every day.
I am a success
Success is so elusive for some. For others it is deceptively simple. What is success? Success is an inside job. Success is having a success mindset. Success starts with that simple thought: ‘What if I take100% responsibility of my life? What if I try to make it myself?’ Affirm: ‘I am a success. Everything that I attempt I accomplish. I am a success!’ Then visualize yourself successful in that which you have attempted, an examination passed, the interview successfully ended, the rent paid. See yourself radiant with success, feel yourself lifted up by the power.
I choose abundance
Society has tried to convince you that you are only as abundant as the amount in your bank account. This is utterly false. Billy Corgan, lead singer of The Smashing Pumpkins, puts it this way: “Everything I want is free.” All of the things that you really want to bring into your life, like happiness, joy, peace, beauty and love, don’t cost a cent. No matter what’s going on for you right now, you can choose to feel abundant. Pay attention to what you already have. Notice the abundance all around you.
I am creative
There are so many ways to get and stay creative! Carry a notebook everywhere, try free writing, get away from the computer, take breaks, sing in the shower, listen to new music, surround yourself with creative people, go somewhere new, don’t force it and most of all ‘Have fun!’
I clearly see all there is to be grateful for
Gratitude means thankfulness, counting your blessings, noticing simple pleasures, and acknowledging everything that you receive. Gratitude shifts your focus from what your life lacks to the abundance that is already present. We all have a whole lot to be grateful for. Life is rarely perfect, but it’s always pretty darn good.
