Recently at the encouragement of a trusted friend I quite reluctantly at first, began to do daily affirmations - I had known about it for a long time & it was on my list of things to do, but I was "busy"... I was truthfully being a little bit lazy- I did't want to bother because it seemed like work to me.... I couldn't have been more wrong in that sense & though I did know it was a good idea I didn't realize just how good an idea it truly was! I feel radically shifted into far higher consciousness & awareness now- my affirmations are actually causing me to be far more aware which ups the learning curve into the "epic"' level! I could even say I'm someone addicted to affirmations, although I still have that lazy ego part of me that tries to prevent me from doing them. Once I get rolling my energy transforms! As a lightworker I've apparently come here with some pretty deep purposes which I am beginning to witness in writing my lists, so it's really cool to watch that take shape! I've actually had to break up my lists because they have gotten far too huge, but now I am able to elaborate on each section of my overall list, continually honing it as love expands.
I've included an article & sample list I came across that may help to get you started, if you are into it. Blogging about it has been on my heart & list for some time, so this has synchronistically provided me a way to help everyone that will allow it. There's massive energy shifting & enlightenment beyond! Enjoy!

I cry at movies and commercials and youtube videos and people hugging at the airport and puppies playing and…well you get the picture. Even though I am not part of the action or in the movie, to the brain it doesn’t matter. The mind will fool our brains because the neural networks of our thinking brain uses past memories to quickly respond to the visual cues.
The reality is that we have more than one mind. And each of these minds has a different experience of what is true.
We can influence our mind through suggestion known by medical professionals as the placebo effect. We will believe a pill will make us feel better (e.g., reduce pain and anxiety). The same can be said for hypnosis. Based on the “power of suggestion” we can also use meditatation, visualization, and affirmation to lower stress.
Affirmations work in much the same way.
Our mind can be tricked into focusing on the positive by actively elevating our thoughts. Dr. Wayne Dyer likes to say, “as you think, so shall you be.” In Yogic philosophy, you become what you think, you create your own reality from the inside. That’s why we can upset ourselves just by entertaining demoralizing thoughts or catastrophizing what can go wrong.
Or we can use affirmations to reward our brain into thinking positively about our situation. We can change our story, change our perceptions, and change our life.
In other words, the world is not created “out there” and then experienced internally. The universe wants to hear our voice. We can tell ourselves what we want to believe, which in and of itself fools the mind into wanting it and believing it to be real. And our minds will find a way to make it happen (because it thinks it has). This is the difference between living from a philosophy of “I believe it when I see it” versus “I see it when I believe it.”
Affirmations simply work!
Pick one of these each day for the next 21 days and say it to yourself all day long, write it down, email it to yourself, post it up on your mirror. Surround yourself with the positive vibration of each affirmation one day at a time See for yourself that affirmations are what yoga talks about in harnessing the power of our intentions and directing them in the direction of our best selves and our happiest lives.
Love your day, love yourself, love your life!
21 DAYS of AFFIRMATIONS
Because this is somebody else's list I would suggest it as a simple guideline to be used once a day minimum, but in being true to YOU as a God-being in your own right, it's important to tweak it & make it your own. You may want to create various catagories to address different aspects of your life & use them at multiple times in your day to create more light - it's all up to YOU & your desires. In doing so then you will really empower yourself for the true magic to happen. As your ligh REALLY begins to radiate, that is what changes all the world around you - we ALL benefit.
If you wish for any further tips please drop me a note- I'm happy to discuss what has worked for me further... Also, please pass on these tips to others & let them link back here where we can all benefit further!!! Blessings to you for doing so! Love On!
