I AM ….

I invite you in this moment  to say the following phases aloud :

I AM GREAT.

I AM WILD.

I AM BRAVE.

These were Jacob’s affirmations this past week. After he declared these phrases, I asked him, what has come up for you ? He expressed his excitement and dedication to  going back home and attending school. He is excited to go back a new man and interested to see what home has awaiting for him. He cannot wait to be with his friends and family, that he dearly misses. We also spoke about expectations and attachments he may have about the way things use to be and how they may have changed. Although it is human nature to have expectations, it is best to just have an open heart and not become attached to what may or may not occur. Attachments to results and outcomes can be detrimental to our  spirit, because these things are simply out of our control. However, you do have control over yourself and the person you choose to be every day. Since Jacob left home for Florida, he has created so much positive change in his life and continues to grow. I’m excited to see what the next 4 weeks has in store for my brother and the bright, great, wild, & brave light he will be as he moves back home.

I invite you in this moment, to say this aloud :

I AM A CLEARING FOR LIFE.

I AM A CHANNEL FOR GOD.

I AM  NOTHING AND EVERYTHING.

What came to mind for Zee Love after proclaiming these words, was how present and open she became. She was feeling a little off that morning and this exercise, brought her into the present moment. She physically felt her chest open up (heart chakra) . Personally, I felt my power  after saying I am nothing and everything ! As we held this space for each other, we spoke about many things. She shared how she really wants to live out these declarations to her family , which has been a struggle for her. These 3 sentences reminded her that she needs to be honest and open with her family. By changing the perception of her dad that she has carried since the age of 6 yrs old , she will be able to love more freely.  We also discussed, that we do not have to fade into the back around of our environment and we do not have to blend in. Just because others  are mean or rude (etc.) to us does not mean that we do not have to be mean back  to protect and defend ourselves. We are so much more than reactions and reflections of negative emotions. We must go into darkness and shine our light.

I invite you to say this aloud :

I AM STRONG.

I AM LOVE.

I AM BEAUTIFUL.

What a precious moment me and Massiel shared , these words spoke volumes for where she is at in her life right now, she has come so damn far. She quietly reminisced on who she use to be, sharing with me how able she is to make these statements and believe them now. Our journeys are so beautiful and unique,  catered to who we are in this life and what we need to learn. She said that the more she repeated these saying the more powerful she felt. So I invite you massi to say these words every day aloud to yourself, cause even I felt your power as these words left your lips and sat on my ears . I too am Strong , I  too am Love, and I  too am beautiful. Thank you Massie G for sharing in this moment with me, your energy spoke louder than your words, I must admit.

I invite you to proclaim these words aloud :

I AM COOL.

I AM STRENGTH.

I AM LOVE.

Marguerite illustrated so much joy and laughter as she declared these words out loud. She was surprised as the words I AM COOL flowed from her mouth. I asked her what does being cool mean to her ? She explained that it meant not being attached to old traditional ways of thinking and being. She even expressed an openness for rap music and not completely shutting out that culture.  She is observing herself being present in what is now. I admire her open mind and honesty, she has exuded nothing but strength and love since the day I met her.

I invite you to repeat the following words aloud :

I AM HOPEFUL.

I AM STRONG.

I AM PREPARED.

When I first explained  the instructions, Sheryl expressed her most inner thoughts and state of being and I too could relate as that morning I also woke up with a sense of sadness.  She said, I am torn, I am broken and, I am sad. I think a state of being that a lot of people have been waking up in this week. Then, I asked her to redo the exercise by digging deep and saying something positive about herself. That is when she came up with the first two, she at first had time coming up with the third. I completely understood, how she felt. Sometimes, in our heaviest moments, its hard to think of the light that resides with in us always. However, in the mist of our conversation she said the words I am preparing, we decided that was her 3rd declaration.  We spoke about emotions and how fleeting they can truly be. Since this is a fact, we cannot allow emotions to over come our world. We have to continue to protect our light , by repeating what our soul knows to be true. I AM HOPEFUL for the future, I AM STRONG enough to pick myself  up when i am down, AND I AM PREPARED for anything that comes my way .

I invite you to repeat the following words aloud :

I AM GRATEFUL.

I AM PRESENT.

I AM THAT I AM.

Moses’s ability to stay present in each moment is always a gentle reminder when I catch myself on my train of thoughts.  I asked him what was he aware of after he spoke these phrases out loud? he said of his interconnection with the me as I sat in front of him and all things in the world. I had the pleasure of repeating Moses’s I AMs as he said them again, I felt an overwhelming amount of peace as I did just that. He shared that he felt such joy to hear me repeat those words to him. In this moment I witnessed how big and deep, yet simple his heart truly is . I have so much to learn from him and it has been comforting to observe our friendship unfold.

I invite you to repeat the following words out loud :

I AM HAPPY.

I AM LOVED.

I AM GRATEFUL.

I asked mama Julie, what she feels after saying this ?  She replied, I am Mother and grandmother and I feel so loved by all my children. As, I closed my eyes and repeated with mama Julie her affirmations, I felt a force of love flowing from her direction covering me. What a powerful aura to be invited into.  Mama Julie then  shared with me that I should not fear anything. I have every reason to be confident in all that I do because of the amount of love I have within myself. She said the divine light resides with in me. I will always have a lot of love around me and because of these facts,  I will be more than okay in life. What a precious moment I shared with her , as she hugged me and said I am her daughter too. I’m honored to have held the space with such a wise, kind, and beautiful soul.

I invite you to repeat the following words and be aware of how it makes you feel :

I AM ME.

I AM FREE.

I AM HERE.

Such declarations of acceptance and being-ness from Erin this week. She expressed that last week she was very low. However,  this week she is well aware of all the energy that is surging through her being.  She expressed that her spirit is alive and awake, it feels amazing! . As she took this moment to be with herself, she felt peace while being aware of the anxious energy that she is allowing to flow through her. She is high on energy and life, feeling more empowered as she went through this exercise.

Say the following statements aloud to yourself :

I AM LOVE.

I AM HEALTHY.

I AM BEAUTIFUL.

Margo giggled as we finished doing the exercise together over the phone. I asked her, why she chose these specific words and what they mean to her ? She explained that she is with out a doubt love. She declared the words I am healthy because ,it is something she wants to improve upon by making health her life style. She shared that one day she would like to do a 40 day sadhana to kick start her 4:30 am  workout. She use to wake up at this time to run and was more health conscious a while back. So it is definitely something she is capable of doing, and i’ll be there to cheer her on when she returns to it. She is beautiful , and she said it is something she is working on accepting. From where I’m standing, she is gorgeous from the inside out. However, I love that even though these words may not be how you always feel, you still declared them aloud, because deep down your highest being knows this is true.  ” I am, I am , I am “.

One last time , repeat these words out loud :

I AM PEACE.

I AM POWERFUL.

I AM LIMITLESS.

 

I feel as if my spirit grew a little stronger and extended a little more after I said those words and typed them out. I feel aware of how motivated I am . I’m aware that although I may not always feel at peace, its something I am striving for. To always be at inner peace no matter what is happening around me. I definitely feel like i’m sharping this tool, through out the weeks we have been together. Also  waking up to be at the ocean or lake every morning has brought me lots of peace in my life.  Those early rise hours , alone , meditating, and doing yoga, just being with my self in nature is everything to me right now. I am more powerful than I know, so I want to speak it into existence until, I truly understand that.  Powerful and limitless go hand in hand for me personally. I really want to solidify the idea in myself that I can do anything and I do not need to be afraid of the results. To be unattached to the results of what I want to do. To do everything I can, always live out my true self , and be aware of my humanity and spirituality. I am working rewriting my reality .

xoxo,

Lady Love
