Love Your Life With These Powerful Affirmations

January 10, 2017

Those that know me well, or even people who regularly read my articles know that I’m a sucker for positive messages, especially when they come in the form of music.

I was especially touched by a song that was played at my job today. It is from Robbie Williams, and it is called “I Love My Life”. It is an upbeat, positive song that can turn anyone’s sour day to a cheerful one. The chorus consists of a number of empowering positive affirmations. It goes like this…

I love my life
I am powerful
I am beautiful
I am free
I love my life
I am wonderful
I am magical
I am me
I love my life

If you were to repeat these affirmations throughout the day, it would be impossible to feel negative and powerless. On the contrary, you will feel positive and powerful.

I am so happy I even found this song, and I extremely grateful to our morning musical selector who chooses the music that starts our day. This one should be played until everyone believes it!

I challenge you to repeat these affirmations throughout the day. Then enjoy the added energy, power, and joy you feel wherever you are. And of course be willing to share it with all who you come in contact with. Enjoy the blessings 🙂


How to Make Your Affirmations Believable

July 27, 2015

I have written often about the power of affirmations. If you are not familiar, positive affirmations are simply words and phrases you repeat to yourself to change your beliefs about something. For example, if you are trying to gain confidence, you can repeat an affirmation such as… I am confident in every situation, I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me, etc.

Affirmations can be a very powerful tool in creating the beliefs you need to be successful. The problem is that sometimes they can create resistance in the mind, which creates more harm than good. For example, you affirm.. I am extremely wealthy. Then your mind takes you immediately to your almost empty bank account. A voice inside your head says…wealthy? Who are you kidding? You are far from wealthy! Then instead of feeling positive, you actually experience negative thoughts and feelings which pull you further away from your goals.

I have written other articles about this (check out How to Avoid the Negative Effects of Positive Affirmations ) which explain how to get around these negative experiences and get the most out of using positive affirmations. I would like to share another excellent piece advice about this I learned while reading an excellent book called “Law of Attraction:The Science of Attracting More of What You Want” by Michael Losier.He suggests using the phrase “I am in the process of…”. When you use this phrase there is no room for negative disagreements to creep up. You are stating a fact. For example, if you are struggling with your weight, using an affirmation “I am at my ideal weight” may create some resistance as you look in the mirror and see the body that you don’t desire. However, if you say “I am in the process of reaching my ideal weight”, you are not saying anything that is not true. Your mind cannot disagree with the fact that you are in this process. In addition, you are placing your focus on your ideal weight. And according to the Law of Attraction, you manifest what you place your focus on.

This is a great help to me, and I share it in hopes it impacts you positively as well. I suggest repeating your affirmations several times a day, using the phrase “I am in the process of” to qualify it. You will find that you can focus on your desire with optimism that you are on your way to manifesting it instead of doubting as you feel you are lying about your present situation. It will help you maintain the positive feelings that speed up the process even more. Enjoy the blessings 🙂


Why Your Affirmations Won’t Work

January 13, 2015

I am a firm believer in the power of using affirmations to make positive changes in my life. In case you don’t know, affirmations are words and phrases you use and repeat to impact the subconscious mind. The key is that as your beliefs change, you take the necessary actions to make the changes happen.

The problem is that sometimes positive affirmations can do more harm than good. I have had people tell me that affirmations have made things worse for them. It has happened for me too.

So why should I continue to use positive affirmations? I recently wrote an article for an ezine about the topic. I share the link with you here….

I certainly hope this helps you use positive affirmations to take those steps towards reaching your goals. I invite you to share with us what works for you. Enjoy your blessings today 🙂


A Simple Affirmation That Will Awaken Your Power

August 11, 2014

There are two words that, when used together, immediately impact the person they are targeted to. I am referring to the simple command….WAKE UP!

You’ve probably experienced the power of these words in two ways. If you needed to wake someone from sleep or perhaps needed to motivate someone for an attitude adjustment, you commanded them to WAKE UP! You’ve also most likely been the person who was sleeping or needed the motivation. In that case, when someone commanded you to WAKE UP!, it most likely got you moving in some way.

In addition to trying to wake someone or being awoken yourself, chances are you may have used this command for yourself. Have you ever told yourself to WAKE UP? If you are like me you probably have. A few days ago I discovered the true power this statement could have in motivating myself. I was going through a bit of an un-energetic funk, and wasn’t succeeding with certain tasks. Besides that I was just sluggish and unmotivated. Finally, I became so frustrated that I simply shouted to myself (mentally because I was in public) WAKE UP! I shouted it again. And again. Before long, I felt a surge of energy going through me. The mediocrity I was experiencing was no longer good enough as I awoke myself to my true potential to succeed. All sluggishness disappeared, and I put my full energy into the task. Things went much better from there.

This experience helped me realize I could use this short and powerful affirmation any time. I began using it even when I wasn’t struggling, and I have been since. I find it especially empowering. Just as the wake up command can get you moving quickly out of a deep sleep, it can also get you moving with a surge of energy in your daily life.

I encourage you to try this, especially if you are lacking energy or motivation. If you are alone you can shout it out. If not, you can do it in you head. Either way, affirming that you WAKE UP! can significantly increase your energy and power. It may seem weird to do, but if you don’t believe me I suggest you try it. You will be surprised by the results. Enjoy the blessings 🙂


Inspirational Affirmation – I Am Present

December 18, 2013

I am a firm believer in the use of positive affirmations to make effective changes in life. I have been using them regularly for several years, and I have seen dramatic changes in my confidence and attitude as a result.

Based on some ideas I have been reading lately, I began using an affirmation that is extremely powerful. It goes like this…”I am present”. It’s very easy to remember, and has a positive and powerful effect for two reasons.

One component helps maintain focus on the present moment. I have read so much lately of the power of the present moment and putting all of our energies there. Focusing on the present is extremely peaceful and powerful because we are not wasting energy dwelling on the past, and we are not holding back because of worry for the future. This affirmation is helpful in maintaining that present moment focus.

Another concept I’ve run into a lot lately (I know it’s because God is purposely revealing it to me) is the power of I Am. In the Bible, God is referred to as I Am on several occasions. I am learning that when we say “I am” about anything, we are essentially referring to the “I Am” that is part of us. Being conscious of that fact has added a great deal of peace and power to my life in the past few months that I have encountered this. This affirmation is a great reminder of the excellent “I Am” power that is part of my being.

I am sure that someone else has already used this same affirmation in the same way. However, my discovery of it has empowered me immensely, and I now share it with you. As many times through the days as you can, focus on those words…I am present. As you do, be thankful and engage completely in the present moment. Then focus on the next part and feel the comfort of the “I Am” that is all around you and a part of you.

I guarantee that meditating on this affirmation will bring a sense of empowerment, and it will happen very quickly. I’ve only been using it for a short time. I’ve experienced its almost immediate effects, and can’t wait to experience the long term effects as I continue to meditate on these words and this powerful idea. I share it with you and look forward to hearing your success stories as well. Enjoy the blessings : )


How Can I Use Mind Power For Rapid Manifestation?

November 6, 2013

We all have our goals, don’t we? Hopefully you answered yes to that question. I know from experience that not only do we want our goals and wishes realized, but we want them now. Or at least as quickly as possible.

What are the quickest ways to get there? For years I have learned that, through the power of your mind and the power of God, you can go anywhere you want to go. Prayer is certainly a helpful option, and the two ideas I’ve been told consistently are affirmations and creative visualization. I have shared several posts about each, and I can certainly tell you that they are very effective.

In case you don’t know, I will provide the crash course here. Affirmations are positive words and phrases you say to yourself over and over again. Creative visualization is using your imagination and playing pictures in your mind of you being the person you want to be and experiencing the life you want to experience. They work well because they affect the subconscious mind, which is the part of your brain makes you the person that you are.

In the past I have done these two things separately. I would spend some time stating affirmations, then later times visualizing. However, I have recently discovered an even more effective way to use these tools to manifest my goals even faster. I have found that an effective key is to use affirmations and visualization together at the same time.

I will say that I am certainly not a multi-tasker, which is one reason it’s taken me this long to realize the power of this. However, it’s not difficult to do, and if I can do it so can you. Keep your affirmations simple. I have said simple statements, like wealth, God-power, love, joy, etc. Then at the same time, I picture a visual representation. For example, if I say wealth, I spend some time visualizing money. Then I eventually see myself enjoying the benefits of having this wealth and living my life as if I have the exact amount I am looking for. It has a very powerful effect. If you know the Law of Attraction, you know that powerful, positive focus and feelings can only bring you what you are seeking rapidly.

Another reason this is effective is because it doesn’t allow the subconscious to question it. Often times when people do affirmations, the mind doesn’t believe it because it has been so negatively conditioned. For example, you can affirm “I am wealthy”, but it is not effective. This is because your mind is then responding, “No I’m not!”. By just saying wealth or power or whatever you are seeking, there is no resistence. Then when you picture it, you start to believe it. That is because your subconscious mind cannot tell the difference between a real or imagined event. Once it is convinced of something, it believes it as truth. That’s how your beliefs are formed, and then you act accordingly.

I have experienced an unbelievable confidence and power in my life since I began affirming and visualizing at the same time. I can see and feel my faith increasing, and I am knowing that it’s only a matter of time before some long awaited goals are reached. The same can be true for you. Affirm great things in your life that you want. Then immediately see it happening in your mind through visual representations and seeing and feeling yourself experience it. You too will be more confident and willing to make your goals happen. Enjoy the blessings : )

More Inspirational Logic

September 10, 2013

I swear I’ve returned to the Fall of 1984. If you read my previous post you will see that I had a sudden flashback to a logic class I took in my freshman year of college. I shared a logic affirmation that worked well, so I decided to try another one that inspired me this morning from Matthew 7…

A. Ask and it will be given to you.

B. I am asking

C. Therefore, it will be given to me.

It’s as simple as that. Affirm this and watch how your emotions rise to the top of the positive scale.

This can be done with any verse or saying that you like. Choose your favorite and affirm the logical equation throughout the day. It works wonders.

Enjoy the blessings : )
