“Ask for what you want and be prepared to get it!” -Maya Angelou
Affirmations are more powerful than we think. They have an ability to transform our lives.They are a form of physical, emotional, mental and spiritual development. A lot of us go around thinking we know what we want or what is best for us. And with that, the Universe has a strange way of pulling the rug from under you, leaving you off balance. Is it reminding you to search for something more? That maybe what you wanted wasn’t in your best interest?
So what is an affirmation? Affirmation is a positive statement of how we envision our best selves. You repeat it out loud or in your head, or write it down. I usually do affirmations in my car! It’s the easiest way for me to remember to do them, mostly because I am alone in my car and or singing, so why not repeat affirmations to calm me in traffic, give me confidence on the way to auditions or manifest miracles!
Here is how it changed my life this week. This past month was a weird work month, where I worked a lot in the very beginning and the very end. This meant my checks from the end of the month wouldn’t get here in time and I would be short on my budget for the month and more importantly short on rent till later in the week past the 1st of the month. I was freaking out I wasn’t going to make rent. I decided to remain calm and expect a miracle, so I had a gig that had me driving to Anaheim every day for the last week on July. Every morning I repeated Affirmations in my car and BOOM within the three days I did them. I booked two out of town high paying gigs along with a cash job two days before the end of the month, which was strangely the EXACT amount of cash I needed to pay rent and all of my other monthly expenses! I DID IT! I MANIFESTED MONEY!
Here are some tips for doing affirmations:
I AM– is one of the best ways to start your affirmation. I AM is declaring a clear vision of what you are. It is said throughout many spiritual teachings that the words I AM are the most powerful words one can use! Here are my examples when I am manifesting money or work:
I AM OPEN TO THE ABUNDANCE AROUND ME
I AM WORTHY OF HIGH PAYING JOBS
I AM LOVEABLE AND EVERYONE WANTS TO WORK WITH ME
They unblock you– Most of the time we get stuck in mental patterns that sometimes sub consciously self sabotage us. We get caught in the “I’m not good enough, why me, this never gets better . . . etc.”. Repeating positive affirmations will break the blocks and clear the energy around you! Sometimes I just write them down and leave notes around my house.
I AM WORTHY OF A HEALTHY RELATIONSHIP,
I AM WORTHY OF HAPPINESS
You must connect with the words you are saying– As humans, we crave experience and if we don’t learn how to affirm what we want to feel then it’s nothing more than a meaningless sentence. Sounds cheesy to some, but you have to FEEL and envision THE ABUNDANCE AROUND YOU! How does it make you feel to have booked that $10,000 commercial? Would you cry of joy? You have to key into your emotions. I’m not saying cry when you say your affirmations, just feel something and say them powerfully!
Make them a habit and routine. Once you find a ‘safe place’ and feel comfortable with affirmations make them daily if you can. You will be surprised how many miracles happen when you become present in affirmations!
