I AM

What if two words could make all the difference in the world between experiencing the life of your dreams and desires and missing out on it? Many folks spend so much time fretting over the ‘what if’s and if only’s..” that they get lost in a jungle so thick with vines that it would take a machete to hack their way through it.

Those 3 letters-  I -A -M have the power to make or break a day or a life time. Remember the story of Moses and the burning bush and the way that God identified Him/Her Self?   ( אֶהְיֶה אֲשֶׁר אֶהְיֶה, ʾehyeh ʾašer ʾehyeh) translated into English as:  “I am that I am.”  It is a firm and solid declaration of existence of  is, am and ever shall be, no beginning and no end. When I consider those words, there is a sense of transcendent comfort that comes along with them, a knowing that all is well. A sacred statement, it can reframe and re-calibrate a mind set.

Wayne Dyer teaches the concept of a conditioning process that occurs throughout our lifetimes and begins with an initial disappointment that we then allow to define us and (potentially) forever, shape our perceptions which then inform our thoughts and then our actions, leading to certain predictable outcomes.

In his blog,  Wayne has written:  “As a schoolchild with a less than satisfactory grade on your report card, you thought to yourself, I am not smart. You place anywhere other than number one and say, I am not talented. You feel criticized and believe that I am not good. You look in the mirror and compare yourself to a glamorous movie idol or homecoming queen and tell yourself, I am not attractive. Your relationship fractures and you think, I am unloved or I am unworthy. These, and many more like them, are repeated throughout your developmental years and into adulthood, and become your core defining self-concept.”

Science of Mind (under the umbrella of New Thought)  communities embrace this idea and know that our thoughts are both potent and potential.  Our prevailing mind set is the brick and mortar of the house we build each day.

How about  taking a look at your own limiting beliefs and how they impact your daily choices?  Some of mine have included:  “I’m not enough,” so I have sometimes worked myself into exhaustion, burning the candle at both ends until there is no more wax left and “I can’t get it all done,” so I have symbolically spun plates, praying that I don’t drop any in the process.

A counter to those statements would be:  I am enough, I have enough, I do enough. What you focus on, you attract more of in your life.

Let’s have fun with this and come up with all kinds of declarative I AM statements:

I am worthy of love.

I am prosperous.

I am talented.

I am creative.

I am Love incarnate.

I am successful.

I am loving.

I am blessed.

I am delighted.

I am filled with joy.

I am well rested.

I am brilliant.

I am compassionate with self and others.

I am in the right place at the right time.

My friend Lew Doty has a song called One With The Life Of God . In it he sings:

I am (I am)

I am one with the Life that creates this Life

I am (I am)

I am one with the Life of God

(Repeat)

Repeat verse with Love

 

I am one (I am one)

With the life (With the life)

That creates (That creates)

This life (This Life)
