After I finished reading Louis Hay's book, "You Can Heal your Life" I was totally inspired to start incorporating affirmations into my daily routine. I mean there's nothing to lose and everything to gain by using affirmations to manifest your highest good!
Keep reading to see how I'm using affirmations in my life!
In August I started dedicating the first hour of my day to a healthy morning routine.
The routine starts out with writing a gratitude list, my intentions for the day, and then choosing 1-2 affirmations that I want to focus on. Sometimes I make them up myself, other times I refer to the wise words of Louis Hay. (Don't try to fix what ain't broke!)
I check in with whatever I need bring into my day, whether that's letting go of doubts with my success, balance in my relationships, some self lovin', or just wishing some gold coins would pour down from the heavens! Affirmations should be a positive "I" statement, written in the present tense.
I support myself and life supports me.
I create harmonious relationships with everyone I encounter.
I approve of myself.
I am a magnet for Divine prosperity.
I then write my 2 chosen affirmations over and over again in my journal, about 20 times each! (These can change or stay the same each day!)
Once I'm clear on my daily affirmations I get into some Pranayama, breathwork. I inhale and say the first affirmation to myself, then exhale saying the second affirmation. I breath through them and start to visualize what this would look like in my life, how this would feel in my body, what emotions it would provoke in my soul, and what action steps I can take to get closer to it becoming reality.
You don't have to worry about the HOW. Your job is just to put the words out into the Universe and BELIEVE that they are true. That's it! The Universe will support you if you support yourself with this positive thinking.
I end my practice with meditation and a physical practice like yoga. Then I get on with my day with a lighter spirit and I begin to notice the magic that the Universe sends my way.
My life started evolving after my first week of using affirmations. I found the most beautiful whole sand dollar on the beach (talk about a good luck charm). I rescued a wet butterfly and she spent time fluttering in my hand. The Universe sent me multiple new paying students to my yoga classes. I felt happy and stopped thinking about that one guy. I was definitely feeling the magnetism of Divine prosperity!
Since this practice has had such a positive impact on me, I wanted to share a few of Louis Hay's affirmations with you. I wrote 5 of my favorite ones under each category. I hope you find some that resonate with you so that you can start implementing them into your days. Please reach out if you'd like some help choosing or writing your own. :)
