“Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.”
Be impeccable with your words! Whether you realize it or not, the words you speak have power over your life. When you are unaware of this truth, you’re usually okay with speaking without thinking about how negative or positive your words are. Every word you speak eventually comes to fruition. This is why it is so important to be conscious of what comes out of your mouth.
Years ago, while i was still in undergrad, I would say so many things to myself. Now, I’m able to look back and see how my speaking effected me. I believe I have failed classes and missed numerous opportunities because of the words I spoke and ultimately made myself believe. Before my first accounting class I remember thinking and saying how hard it was going to be. Needless to say, I failed lol… but the second time around, I changed my outlook and I got an A! I also applied for numerous internships, got interviews and bombed them because I’d told myself “I’m not good enough”, “I am not prepared” etc. It is not a surprise to me that I NEVER got a corporate internship during my undergrad years. However, I do know that everything is always happening in Divine order and the way my life is set up now… I didn’t need an internship!
My senior year is when I realized I needed to watch what I said. My biggest fear was graduating without having a job. I began to speak positivity over myself saying affirming words like “I am going to have a job that I love that will allow me to support myself completely.” My family was threatening to cut me off once I graduated, so I had to figure this out! Long story short, I had two options, to work a corporate management position or pursue my current career as a Licensed Esthetician. I made the right decision, and my affirmations following my graduation is what brought this opportunity to me!
Months prior, I was blessed with a new car. I started affirming the car was mine months before! I created a vision board with the car on it and all. Affirming your vision really works! Speaking what I wanted instead of focusing on what I didn’t helped me attract a romantic relationship! When I say “You can have ANYTHING you want!”, I mean it!
First things first, let it settle in that you are powerful and a percentage of that power is your words alone. Have you ever said something and moments later or days later it happens? This happens to me all the time. Start exercising this now by speaking small things over your life. One thing I am manifesting right now and affirming is that “I have a new car” I know what car, color, all of the details. I have affirmed it so much with great intent there has not been one day that goes by and I do not see this car at least once. It is not mine yet and the universe is still blessing me with just the visual of it, it’s so beautiful.
Secondly, “I AM” is your new best friend. The most powerful affirmations begin with those two words. Think of the things you have began saying with “I AM” lately. Have they been beneficial to your life goals, desires and aspirations? If not, the great thing is it’s never too late to change and what better time than now? Let’s jump right in! Below are 5 life changing affirmations to get you believing in yourself and walking in your purpose.
5 Life Changing Affirmations:
Everything is always working out in my favor.
This is my favorite affirmation! I have been saying it for years and it has not failed me yet! It doesn’t matter what the universe presents to you because of your previous mindset or words you spoke. It all works out for you anyway!
I do what fulfills me and makes me happy.
It’s unfortunate we even have to affirm this but we sometimes forget about ourselves and take care of everyone else around us. There is nothing wrong with caring for loved ones however, we HAVE to do the same if not more for ourselves. You are here so it is definitely a desire. This affirmation makes you think, “What actually makes me feel fulfilled and happy?”.
I AM successful.
We all want success! This is not society’s idea of success, but yours! What does that look like for you? In our next blog we will discuss visualising, this is a great way to start moving towards your success!
My body, mind, and spirit is healthy and functioning in the very best way.
Love! This is another favorite of mine, sometimes you may be feeling like everything isn’t ok with you… BUT it is! I myself have been a hypochondriac in the past so this helps me to stay grounded and knowing that I’m okay, every part of me is okay!
I am loving and attracting loving and positive situations.
Karma! Let’s create good karma for ourselves. So if you are giving off loving and positive energy, it is inevitable that that is what you will receive in return!
What else would you like to affirm over you life? Write them down, read them every chance you get! Quick lesson with affirmations, never use negative wording.
I am not a failure.
I am successful.
Not is a negative word, therefore making the whole statement negative. Our goal is to only affirm positive things.
