If you haven't heard of daily affirmations before, it simply means to consciously think or verbalize certain things each day, with a goal of affecting change in your life. The concept of daily affirmations is that through conscious thought patterns (and in this case, we're talking about more specifically verbal confirmation of those thoughts) and repetition, we can have an emotional and physical impact on our daily lives. Some people may refer to this topic as manifestation; though I like to think of it as a self-awareness of the laws of the Universe. If you haven't read my article on quantum physics, check it out here.
Every morning when I drive to work, I turn down the radio and I give myself 5-6 minutes to say aloud my own personal daily affirmations (listed below). I began performing this ritual almost a year ago. I will confess that initially I was very skeptical about the whole process. It is hard to believe that simply defining what I wish for in life and who I wish to be will actually manifest and become my reality. But that is the law of quantum physics.
At first I wrote down a list of affirmations that fit my life and situation at that time, then I would refer to that sheet each day and verbally repeat each line. After a while, I was so used to the mantra I had created that I no longer needed a visual cue to help me remember what it was I wanted to say.
Please understand that we all are on different paths in life, and some of MY affirmations may not be appropriate for you, depending on your religious beliefs, economic status, romantic status, etc. That is perfectly okay. You must honor your own path, and create affirmations that fit your needs and the life you wish to live. Visualize the life you want, the areas that need fulfillment, your own shortcomings or hardships and allow yourself to use the power you have always had within you to make positive changes.
My Daily Affirmations
I am a being of infinite light, love and potential.
Today is a good day. I begin and end each day with gratitude and joy.
I love and accept myself.
I am grateful to have found my soulmate and I honor that bond.
I have a warm and caring heart. Every cell in my body radiates peace.
I make a conscious effort to be a messenger of love to everyone I meet, especially to those who are unkind to me.
I acknowledge the Source and the inter-connectivity of all life.
I accept my soul’s path and will honor this journey, wherever it may lead.
There is nothing that I need nor want that the Universe will not provide. All in due time.
My body is capable of healing itself.
I am filled with dynamic energy, because I am active and alive.
Money, success, wealth, happiness and bountiful opportunities flow freely and consistently into my life.
I connect with Heaven through nature, and I know that my body is held, loved and guided by a Divine energy.
I am open to receiving signs and messages from Heaven. I do not have to go searching for them. I let them fall upon me.
I am in the process of making positive changes in all areas of my life.
Everything is working out for my highest good. All is well. I am safe.
In the busy world we live in, taking time for yourself is one of the hardest things to do. I understand. My aunt Beth told me something once that has continued to resonant with me as I've gotten older, "Everything in life revolves around time. You prioritize your time. If something is important enough to you, you can and will make time for it."
What can possibly be more important than making time to honor yourself? Make a promise to yourself right here, right now, that you will take five or ten minutes every single day to speak your affirmations and begin to change your life.
