The Statement That Will Give You Chills

So the other day we went over Affirmations and I introduced steps on how you can create a heart centered Affirmation. I am reading this book “Wishes Fulfilled” by Dr. Wayne Dyer for school and in the beginning of the book he talks about thoughts and how powerful they can be. He says that if we truly want to transform we have to change our thoughts. I just quickly want to share a VERY powerful Affirmation that he shares in the book that literally makes the hair on my arms stick straight up when I read it. Although the format does not coincide with the ones I shared last week, you can still see how there are many types of possible Affirmations that can work for you. The main point is that it is a very powerful statement that is present tense and motivates you to think and create strong feelings around what you want from life or a situation.

I have a burning desire – an inner flame that will not be exstinguished by outer forces – to know and live from higher regions, to be transformed so that my new concept of myself will no longer include any limitation. I am willing to challenge and change my thoughts and impede my having a higher vision of myself

The reason I love this Affirmation so much is I feel it is one that everyone can connect with. When you are on your path of transformation, you will find that it’s not easy to just change overnight. Your whole life, however long that has been, has led you to think and believe the things you do. Although you may now know certain things are not working for you, up until now, it was working for you in someway. So you will see that it can be very easy, automatic, and comfortable to go back to the ways you have been used to for so long. You can probably already attest to being triggered and tested over and over again. Guess what? you won’t always pass but guess what else… it’s ok!!!

This Affirmation allows you to become present to the fact that outer forces will always be present. There are things that will try to extinguish your flame but you will no longer allow those things, people, or situations to limit you. You will no longer let your current beliefs and thoughts limit you. You are open and willing to challenge YOURSELF when old ways creep in and then guess what…. eventually you will start passing the tests. Over and over again!!! This affirmations brings alive in you the being you know already exists underneath all those old patterns and limiting beliefs and allows you to mindfully bring forth this idea and attitude when triggers and tests arrive.

If you are having a trouble coming up with an affirmation of your own, find one online or in a book that makes you excited. This one is definitely a good start. And remember, it takes consistency to create new ideas and pathways of thinking, so put your affirmation somewhere you will see it daily, even a few different places so you can see it throughout the day, that way you can truly transform yourself with it’s new ideas.

Let me know in the comments section what your current affirmation is, and if you do not have one, do me a favor…say the one above to yourself and tell me how it makes you feel?

Vulnerability leads to connection. Connections allows us to see we aren’t alone. Allow yourself to be vulnerable and share your thoughts or story in the comments section below so that you can open the opportunity for a connection with someone else

Intent Blog: 8 Ways To Feel Better In 30 Seconds

article via Intentblog by: Janice Taylor

 

CL Society 194: Laughing girlPeople tell me, “I don’t have the time to …

“… go to the store and pick up fruits and vegetables.
“… exercise.” 
“… sit and breathe.”
“… to be positive.”

Really?  Too busy to be positive?

Surely, you can clear a scant 30 seconds to do something positive for yourself, can’t you? If thinking about what to do takes up too much of those 30 seconds, here follow 8 suggestions!

1. Breathe. 70% of waste is eliminated via your lungs! You can place your hand on your belly and feel it rise and fall with each breath cycle. Thirty seconds of breathing can do wonders!

2.Affirmations. Repeat one powerful affirmation over and over again for 30 seconds. If it’s a short affirmation, “I am whole and complete,” you may be surprised to find how many times you can repeat “I am whole and complete” in just 30 seconds.

3. Stretch. Stand and reach for the stars!

4. Smile. Smiling relaxes hundreds of muscles and releases pockets of stress and tension held in your face.

5. Stay Hydrated. Your brain is approximately 75% water, and it’s the first place in the body to lose water. Your brain needs water to think clearly. Drink a glass of water.

 

6. Close Your Eyes. Give yourself a real break and allow your body a 30 second opportunity to re-balance itself. Close your eye, cup the palm of your hands over your ears and listen to the blissful sounds of the ocean playing. Just like when you were a kid and held that shell to your ear!

7. Dance It Out. Plug your iPod into your ears and shake it up for 30 seconds. The ultimate energy boost!

8. Do Nothing. Just sit and stare; perhaps out the window or at the ceiling. Just be sure to do nothing!

Surely, we all have a few 30-second pockets of time during the day where we can take the time to just be. Start NOW!

Spread the word … NOT the icing!
