Ciao and Sacred Sunday:
I don’t know about you, but I have a love/hate relationship with affirmations. OK, well maybe not hate; that’s such a harsh and mean-spirited word.
It’s more like an uncomfortable itchy feeling.
The thing is, after so many years of trying to “think” my way to my heart’s desires, getting some momentum but then hitting a brick wall, I simply fell out of love with affirmations.
However,…drum roll please, recently I’ve begun to feel a little excited about them again.
Dare I say I’m even feeling enthused about incorporating affirmations into my life again.
So, what changed you may be wondering?
Well, for one, saying something positive and inspiring each day feels a hell of a lot better than beating myself up with a lot of inner trash talk.
Are you with me?
Then there’s the wisdom that came with consistent practice and personal development work that helped me circle back around.
The thing is affirmations alone will not open the door to the kingdom of heaven.
Affirmations, along with spiritual and personal growth practices like meditation, journaling, coaching, self-discipline, strong intention, movement and taking right action, is a win-win!
Even more, there’s exciting research in neuroscience that suggests, and is proving, that like mantra and prayer affirmations, help reduce anxiety, depression, elevate your over-all sense of well-being and changes the neural pathways in the brain.
So, as we move into the busyness of the holiday season and stress levels increase, I urge you to continue or begin the practice of self-affirmation.
Today, I offer you 10 affirmations from “The Roadmap to Legacy” Virtual Online Course to get you started.
👄I’m proud to be a Breakaway Girl/Guy!

👄I am perfect in my imperfections.
👄I’m clear on who I am. I’m a living legacy.
👄Today, nothing’s going to hold me back. Today, Self-confidence is my new favorite outfit!

👄I honor the light, love, truth, beauty, and legacy within you, because it is also within me.
👄I am the living breathing embodiment of the divine force of creativity, Herself.
I encourage you to look in the mirror while speaking the affirmations out loud. And why not create your own.
Have fun with them and then my friend, get to work!
💖With love and appreciation, xoxo Paulette
