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~

Pity Party
I had to giggle when I saw this meme, created by Theresa Byrne, another contributor to The Good Men Project,  since it was sucked right out of my spinning mind. Many's the time I have petulantly pouted about the way life events were unfolding. I have stomped and stormed, raved and raged (interna

Making The Ordinary Come Alive
  I became an adoptive parent in 1992, when diminutive blond haired, green eyed Adam became my son. I like to say that my stretch marks are on my heart, not my hips. A high energy kiddo with his own ideas of how life should be, there were times when I questioned my ability to keep up with hi

Changing the Dishes
  Fellow Good Men Project author Thomas Fiffer shared his insights about the holiday of Passover. I saw his blog entry this morning as I was contemplating what to write for today's Bliss Blog. Having been raised in a Jewish home, Passover was eagerly anticipated all year long. The pre-holi

Self Imposed Slavery
Tonight marks the first night of Passover which commemorates the journey from slavery to freedom of the Jews in Egypt who were compelled to work at the peril of their own lives.  Jews around the world (and others who are invited guests as they were in my childhood home) will gather to celebrate a

That's What Makes You Strong
  Another soul passed into the Light yesterday to join the celestial choir. I first heard Jesse Winchester's music in the 80's. As a consummate singer songwriter, he had  a gift for vivid imagery that took the listener along for the ride. Songs such as Mississippi, You're On My Mind,
