Are your affirmations hindering your progress, or helping you along?
An affirmation is a thought you believe to be true. We have many and use them all of the time. However, some of these thoughts are outdated or don’t even have a basis in reality. Our realities are shaped everyday by the thoughts we keep on thinking, about ourselves, others and the universe. There was a time when saying the world was not flat was blasphemy and yet now we know it is not because some brave soul was thinking outside the box.
Take a look at your thoughts about yourself. Are they empowering and filled with love? Take some time and write some simple, positive statements about who you are and who you are becoming, feel the words and say them from your heart:
“I am beautiful.”
“I am worthy.”
“I am worth loving.”
“I am loved and supported.”
Archangel Chamuel, whose name means "he who sees god “or “he who seeks god, helps us see the love and godliness in each other. He works on the pink ray of divine love and light. He shares this message:
“Affirmations are powerful and used every day, whether you realise it or not, and not all of them are positive or lead to the desired results you seek. Let your words and thoughts be gentle and filled with love for yourself and others always and then you know you are living in the light. Remember that only Love is real and so let your thoughts and affirmations for yourself and others be based in the light of love.” Here are some examples to help you shift your life and use these magic words every day, until they vibrate in your being and ripple out into the world:
“I have a dynamic spiritual basis to all of my relationships. I am loved and supported by my spiritual family and I love and support them unconditionally. My heart is full.”
"I am opening my heart to giving and receiving love. It is safe for me to love and be loved."
“I am at peace with myself, my life and all that is.”
“I choose to live in inner peace regardless. I am at peace because I remember that only love is real.”
"I acknowledge the love and beauty within me and the love and beauty within all that I meet."
Affirmations are like magic wands. They allow you to create – as if by magic – that which you want more of in your physical experience.”
One of the best ways to fully use the power of using affirmations is do the following exercise at least twice a day, ideally morning and night:
Go where you won’t be disturbed for a few minutes and you can get yourself in a quiet, relaxed and centered state. Connect with your heart center and feel the energy of love surround you. Ask your angels to surround you in a protective loving orb of light and say a little prayer of thanks, and set your intent of what you are doing. You can say something like.
“I call upon my higher self, my guides and angels, god, the Creator, and all the beautiful lights that are here to assist me with my projects here on earth. I am going to share my affirmations and intention of all the projects I wish to create, all the aspects of myself that I wish to develop and enhance, and [list whatever else you are working on]. I thank you for your guidance and assistance and I will notice the signs you put before me and ask that they be given to me in such a way that I understand and that I also know that they came from you. Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you. So Be it. Amen”
Read your affirmations, taking time between each one to feel them, to envision how your life will look when they arrive and feel with these qualities or objects in your life. Feel the essence of your words.
Thank the Universe, your guides, your angels, and any other deity or master who is important to you.
Bring yourself fully back into your present, feeling refreshed, revitalized and fully awake, surrounded by love. Keep your thoughts about yourself and others positive and in the light of love.
There can be times on your journey when you feel you are alone and asking why. These are the very times to talk with your angels and invite them into your life. There are times you feel exasperated, disappointed and are sad. We tell you it is in those times that you can know our love is real and that we surround you in the protection of our light. Call upon the light of Archangel Michael, who offers you his shield and sword of truth, and feel the warm glow knowing he is by your side. Some affirmations to help you with your journey under the protection of his light”
“I confidently shine my divine light, knowing that I am strong, honest and protected.”
“I seek justice and fairness in all my dealings with others.”
“I believe in myself and trust that I have what it takes to accomplish my goals."
And if you have a particular trying and difficult experience to heal:
“I release that part of me that is irritated when I think of you. I am filled with love and joy for myself and my journey right now.”
You can choose to be happy right now, no one can take that away from you. Choose happy and wanted thoughts for yourself, you deserve it:
“Thank you for assisting me in keeping my focus, keeping my thoughts on joy and love. I am so grateful that all of my needs are met and I am abundant in all areas of my life.”
“I deserve to have a wonderful, joyful life of abundance, good friends, and meaningful activities, and I do!”
“I am honoured to play my unique part in the unfolding Universe.”
“I trust that I will have all that I need available to me when I need it. There is enough for everyone in our abundant Universe, and that includes me.”
“I am one with my family, spiritual family, and all of humanity. Together we are stronger. I am united and inspired by love and peace for all.”
And it is so!
