The lotus represents purity of the body, speech and mind.
It comes into full bloom, ascending above the muddy waters of its growth.
We are no different than this beautiful lotus!
A cherished friend and teacher once told me, "Fake it until you make it"! This is one of my absolute favorite sayings because it goes along with the power of affirmations. Affirmations refer primarily to the practice of positive thinking and self-empowerment – fostering a belief that “a positive mental attitude supported by affirmations will achieve success in anything.”
Along my own healing path, I've done and tried everything for my own personal growth and healing. Beyond a shadow of a doubt, affirmations hold a huge place in my life. It was through daily affirmations that I was able to rewrite the broken record that constantly played in my head. I created a new recording in my head that was filled with self love, worthiness along with confidence and was able to achieve this with daily affirmations.
Think deeply about how you see yourself. What are the negative things you are telling yourself deep down? This can sometimes be a painful process of realization to say the very least. Its definitely not easy, but think of all of the great things in your life. Most of the wonderful things that have come to you have required effort and hard work on your part. All things that are worth the outcome, involve discomfort and change.
Remember this: If you say you can't do something, your right. You've just concreted it with your statement. Conversely, how many times, while trying to do something difficult, have you created a mantra like, “I can do this, I can do this”? When you say those things positively to yourself, chances are in most cases, you will achieve it. The statements you make to yourself program your mind.
So once you've dug deep and have the answers of your negative self talk, rewrite those thoughts in a positive way and in the present state, such as “I AM worthy!” This may take some time if you begin to really dig deep. You may even be amazed at what you find, if your seriously being true to yourself in wanting to change. So write down ALL of the negative statements you may tell yourself. Then rewrite them positively. Use those affirmations every day, even twice a day if you can.
You may find it very difficult at first to say the words. Say them anyway. You may find it most difficult to believe them. Say them anyway. You don't necessarily need to believe the words you say right now. Try looking in the mirror, which may be the most uncomfortable to do, but try it anyway. By doing this, you'll be reprogramming your unconscious mind into eventually believing the words you say.
I challenge you to do the do! Rewrite your broken record, and do daily affirmations for 21 days. Start being true to you and your well being. Step out of your comfort zone, and find the REAL you on the other side. You will be amazed at how your whole life and perspectives begin to change in a positive way.
These healing tips and tricks I share with you from a place of love and light. I want everyone to know that if your initial block creating illness or pain in your life is due to your thoughts, you have the power to heal yourself the natural way.
