"Words are energy and cast spells; that's why it's called spelling. Change how you speak about yourself, and you can change your life.”
- credited in part to Bruce Lee
For many years, I wandered through life without recognizing the weight of this profound wisdom. Words were just words — or so I believed. However, as I embarked on a journey of self-awareness, I came face to face with the reality of the narratives I was crafting about myself, and shockingly, many weren't even in my own voice.
During those trying times, I often caught myself in a loop of negative self-talk. Whispers of doubts, past rejections, and societal standards would echo, distorting my self-perception. It wasn't until I stumbled upon the work of Louise Hay many moons ago, that the true magic of affirmations became clear to me. Louise spoke of the transformative power of words and their ability to shape reality. Through her guidance, I discovered that by altering the dialogue within, I was, in fact, reshaping my external world.
Everything is interconnected - our words, emotions, and essence. The thoughts we have and the words we utter stir feelings within us. These feelings aren't just insignificant fleeting moments but important forms of energy. And at our deepest level, that's precisely what we are: beings of energy. To make real changes in our lives, it's crucial to adjust our energy our vibration, to align with what we truly desire. The starting point? Being deeply aware of the emotions our thoughts evoke. Recognizing this connection is a significant step in our transformative journey and why we speak of Raising Our Vibe!
When I first dipped my toes into the world of affirmations, I won't lie; it was a bit of a challenge. It wasn’t easy coming to terms with the self-defeating way I thought about and spoke to myself. One affirmation that particularly struck a chord was Louise Hay's mantra, "I am loveable because I exist." Ouch! That one unearthed some deep pain and feelings of shame, immediately getting my attention like a punch in the gut. I had no idea I had such a harsh view of myself, and explained why I lacked self-esteem and self-acceptance. Over the years, I've sprinkled affirmations in with other healing modalities and practices, nudging me closer to truly loving and accepting myself. Even if I wasn't entirely sold on these affirmations at first, they've become a vital part of my uplifting journey toward self-discovery and self-love.
Remember, we're not just shaping narratives but sculpting our vibrational frequency. With every positive affirmation and uplifting thought, we inch closer to the life we envision. Why not start today?
