“Never limit your view of life by any past experience…It is simply a question of sticking to an idea until it becomes a tangible reality.”

                                                       ~Ernest Holmes

 

“I am now willing…”

                                              ~Bill Wilson

 

 

I try to remember to be mindful that what I put after that extremely powerful word duo will become my life experience. I Am… what I decide I am. Actually I Am what I believe I am, no more, no less. If I want to know what that really is, my results, situations, and circumstances will provide lots of clues for me to interpret.  Those clues will tell me what I believe to be true about who I am, and what I believe is possible or not for me.

The key is realizing these words pack power not only when I mindfully say them to conjure up intentions. They are equally powerful when I toss them around carelessly without realizing I’m doing so. Maybe even more powerful then, because my subconscious catches them and runs with them, undisturbed. Like when I say things like: “I am a klutz.” “I am always losing my keys.” “I am dreading this.”  Maybe not always life threatening things, but certainly not life enhancing.

People get weird about saying “I am an alcoholic.” I don’t. I am an alcoholic. Nothing wrong with it… only something wrong if I am an alcoholic who is drinking alcohol.

The other night I could not fall asleep. I began to play the alphabet game in my head. It started innocently enough when I noticed I am awake. It went on from there. It did help me get to sleep and I went on a high note.

Play along – it’s fun. And oh yeah, when you affirm, affirm big.

What are you right now?
What do you want to be?
Do you tune in to your thought to make sure you’re affirming what you want?

In gratitude, harmony and support,
