Declaration

Words have immense power to alter our perception of reality. One measure of your world view are the results you experience in your life.  The word ‘declare’ comes from Latin “to make clear”,   “to reveal” , “to make manifest.”  Create a ‘declare eclair’  filled with luscious, sweet, delectable stuff.  Declare joy. Declare success. Declare abundance. Declare love.

I often ask myself:  “What would someone have to believe in order to be living the experiences I am having at this moment?”  I take the ‘me’ out of it temporarily, so I don’t go getting all defensive about it and can step back and approach it with a bit of objectivity. I then explore the beliefs or ‘the story I am telling myself’  about whatever might be occuring.  Next step is to apply declarations.  Call them affirmations if you would like.  Our minds are so powerful and clever that it is important to state them in the affirmative.  Rather than saying “I don’t want to feel angry.” (our minds delete the word ‘don’t’ and instead focus on the word ‘angry’.), a declaration might be: “I choose to feel peaceful.”  Instead of stating:  ” I don’t want to eat all of that junk food.”, substitute it with “I eat healthy, delicious foods that nourish me in body, mind and spirit.”  In other words, focus on what you DO want, rather than on what you don’t want.

One beautiful way of declaring is using the words I AM (as in what God was said to have spoken to Moses at the Burning Bush)

 

I AM abundant.  I AM love incarnate.  I AM joyous.  I AM experiencing wonder.  I AM healed, whole and healthy.  I AM creative. I AM living my passion and purpose. I am courageous. I AM vibrant.  I AM free.

So what is it that you AM?

 

A beautiful song for your Bliss-filled day to carry you on waves on love~

Clothes Make The Man
As I was speaking with a client today, we were discussing ways that people learn who they are and how they re-create themselves when major life changes occur. I remembered a scene from one of my favorite films:  Joe vs. the Volcano. Tom Hanks plays Joe Banks who  has a dreary, gray life, with pre

Changing Your Mind About God
I was listening to an  NPR interview today with author Scott Chesire whose initial book  is called High As the Horses’ Bridles, which is a reference to an image connected with Armageddon. It is a novel, but in part, is based on his own experience as a Jehovah's Witness. In his conversation
