"All that a man achieves and all that he fails to achieve is the direct result of his own thoughts." - James Allen


ˌafərˈmāSH(ə)n/ noun plural noun: affirmations

the action or process of affirming something or being affirmed.

emotional support or encouragement.

Affirmations have played a huge role in my healing journey, but also my everyday. I feel that sometimes we forget HOW powerful words are. Not only that but what we constantly tell ourselves on a daily basis. We humans, have anywhere from 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day. But according to some research, as many as 98 percent of them are EXACTLY the same as we had the day before! Talk about creatures of habit! Even more significant, 80 percent of our thoughts are negative. This is mind blowing in itself! If we constantly have the same thoughts, and they are constantly negative, its no wonder we are repeating old habits, finding it hard to change, manifesting negative things in our lives + Not living + pursuing our dreams.

Understanding and learning to consciously and intentionally direct the power of your thoughts is a VITAL and necessary component of achieving and experiencing your most sought after and "heartfelt" dreams, desires and aspirations.

On a larger scale, the power of thoughts, whether YOUR thoughts, those of another as well as those which we think as a species collectively, are crucial to and determine the quality of our evolution of our planet and the people around us.

Thoughts have the power to C H A N G E, and if we are not constantly changing than we become stagnant. Energy stops flowing, we stop growing, our relationships stop growing, and we get stuck in a ever perpetuating cycle.

ANYTHING and EVERYTHING in the world begins and happens as a result of the power of thoughts. It ALL begins with one thought. The predominant thoughts that you choose to think combined with the emotions that these chosen thoughts create will, with unwavering certainty, mold and shape your life physically, financially, relationally, emotionally and spiritually. It seems quite simple, because it is! T H O U G H T is the seed that determines the kind and quality of YOUR harvest, aka the quality of YOUR experiences in the external world.

Some perfect examples that we are ALL too familiar with //

Do you know anyone that constantly communicates a lack of money? If you do, I'm sure that they actually don't have enough...or at least "perceive" that they don't. I'd be willing to bet that they are always scraping and struggling regardless of how hard they might "work" just to make ends meet. That is the power of thoughts in action.

Do you know of anyone that continually talks negatively about a specific relationship that they are in? Again, I can assure you that the relationship that they continually express dissatisfaction with is lacking in some way. That too is the power of thoughts in action.

Now think about someone who constantly talks or worries about being ill. You bet, they are ill a great deal of the time. They get the flu every time the flu comes around. They get a cold every time they're exposed to the virus, etc. . . their thoughts are ALREADY creating the illness.

The reason they are in the situation they are in is because of the predominant thoughts and beliefs of lack (fear) and limitation that they have established, which are exactly what attracted and created the situation in the first place.

Until they (we) are willing and able to CHANGE the initial underlying thought process that created the situation, and/or the emotions that accompany these patterns, they will continue to attract and experience the same results, and they will remain "seemingly stuck" in that situation, again the self-perpetuating cycle.

The Power of Thoughts play a huge and tremendous role in determining the kind and quality of your life...period. The kind and quality of the consistent thoughts you choose define, mold and shape the kind and quality of your life physically, financially, relationally, emotionally and/or spiritually.

BOTTOM-LINE: WE (you + I) are the creators of the events, conditions and circumstances which make up OUR life experiences. Become conscious of what it is that you are creating and you will begin to experience a life filled with Joy, Fulfillment, Profound Inner Peace and Limitless Prosperity in each and every area of your life.

There are some things in life we are more fortunate to have than others, of course. We are all blessed with certain talents, abilities and surroundings. This is a fact of life. However, we also have the choice and freedom to be the masters of our destiny.

Remember that. You create your own life. YOU are in control. Choose to think about Abundance. Happiness. Love. Joy. Health. Freedom. Flexibility. Peace . . . and these will ALL start showing up in your life.

A few of my favorite affirmations that I would / do repeat on a daily basis:

"I am Healthy" or "I'm already healed" (i used to say this for hours when I was healing! Over and over)

"Only Love"

"Health in every step"

"Breathe in love and joy, exhale health and happiness"

"I create abundance in my life by being happy, joyful and by spreading love"

"My purpose in life is to help people heal in all areas of life"

"Everything I do, I do with a smile on my face, and happiness in my heart"

"I let go of whatever is not serving my higher purpose, or joy"

"I have everything within me to heal"

"I can and will live my dream life"

"I have the power to choose my thoughts, actions and words - they are only positive, helpful and uplifting"

My main mantra:

"Please illuminate me. Please open my heart chakra. Open my aperture and uplift my consciousness so that I can be the best version of myself.’

Get a small journal and start writing down your thoughts, mantra's, prayers, manifestations, affirmations, dreams . . . the power of thoughts, words + your mind is LIMITLESS.

love & light
