The words that you speak to yourself have a greater impact than any word from someone eles’s mouth. You have the power to control your life with the words that you speak and each day you have to become intentional about maintaining that power. These three daily affirmations will help you do that and so much more so that you can live your best life!
Open Palms, Open Mind, Open Heart
When you’ve allowed people in your life that have caused you pain and heartbreak, your initial reaction is to put up a barrier so that future pain doesn’t even have a door to walk through. What you may not realize is that when you put up a barrier to block potential pain, you also block potential joy. The same barrier that protects you is that same barrier that is holding you back from experiencing all that God has for you.
This affirmation is intended to open all parts of your body, mind, heart, and soul to endless possibilities. Find a quiet area and sit with your legs crossed on the floor. Place your left hand on your left knee and your right hand on your right knee with both palms facing up. Repeat this mantra.
“With open palms, an open mind, and an open heart, God, I’m ready to receive what you have for me.”
You Are a Light The World Needs
Sometimes circumstances, situations, and people will attempt to steal your smile. They will attempt to hijack your happiness. They will attempt to dim your light. And when your life seems unfavorable, it can become easy to feel rejected and unwanted. You are wanted! You are accepted! And the right people and the right opportunities will be drawn to you just because of who you are and how bright you shine.
This affirmation is intended to remind you how important you are to this world and how important your light is no matter how dim your life may seem. Every time you pass a mirror, whether you are in the bathroom, in the dressing room, or at home, I want you to repeat this mantra.
“In the midst of darkness, my inner light shines bright. I am a light the world needs and the right people will be drawn to my radiant spirit at the right time.”
You Are Enough. You Have Enough.
In today’s society, it has become increasingly difficult not to compare yourself to others. If you’re single, you’ll compare yourself to your friends on social media that post about how happy they are in their relationship. Then, you’ll wonder why you can’t find that. If you’re struggling financially, you’ll compare yourself to your friends that came out of college with six-figure careers. Then you’ll wonder why your check is lacking a few zeros. If you’re thick, you’ll compare yourself to your skinny friends that post their beach bikini photo. Then, you’ll wonder why you’ve been eating salads and still haven’t lost enough weight to fit in a two-piece. Comparing yourself to other people lead to feelings of insufficiency. You’ll begin to feel like no matter how much money you make, how much weight you lose, and how much you try to find love, you’ll never be enough. That is not true! You are enough just the way you are and the right people will love you without you having to become someone or something else.
This affirmation increases self-awareness and helps you become intentional about staying in your own lane and not comparing yourself to the people driving next to you. Your lane. Your speed! Your life! And you, my dear, are enough for the life that you are living! Anytime before you unlock your phone or get out of your car, I want you to repeat this mantra so that you prepare for whatever may come your way.
At this moment, I am releasing all of the disempowering thoughts of insufficiency. I AM enough. I HAVE enough.
