The words and language patterns that we choose to use in our daily lives have the power to shape our reality. Moment by moment we have a choice as to the vibration we are offering to the Universe to get reflected back to us as manifestations.
As you know: ‘to think is to create’.
However, there are two words in particular that lock certain beliefs into our subconscious minds and literally program the way we move through our life experience as spiritual beings.
These two little words might only be three letters in length, but they have the tremendous capacity and almighty strength to sculpt every aspect of your life, right down to the most minute and insignificant detail.
‘I AM’ is an affirmation every time you say it.
Whatever you choose to pair it with is a prayer to the Universe (or God) that you are declaring who you are and how you are choosing to define yourself as a spiritual being. You are OWNING that statement, branding yourself, offering a vibration and stamping a pattern to be repeated as a theme to manifest throughout your life.
A woman wrote to me yesterday saying that she would love to purchase one of my programs. She expressed that she was ‘kicked to the curb’ after being married for 15 years and left with 3 children to support and nurture. I get it for sure, after being married for 10 years myself and leaving my marriage with overwhelming debt and two beautiful children.
One sentence in this lady’s email moved me the most. Although she was willing to wire me the money for the course (an option we don't offer), she explained why she doesn’t have a credit card with 3 sad and shocking words that inspired the need to write this post…
I AM POOR
It hit me like a tonne of bricks in the pit of my stomach that many people use their words so flippantly. I’m not talking about silly statements like ‘I AM HUNGRY’ or the basic intrinsic desires that need to be satiated throughout the course of a day. I’m talking about the statements that stick to your soul like shit to a blanket.
I AM TOO OLD
I AM FAT
I AM UNLUCKY
I AM STUPID
I'm sure you get the picture. The point here is that these statements cement themselves into your consciousness and manifest into your reality. The good news is that you have the power to shift your awareness and rewire your patterns to set you on a new course of awakening.
Honestly, if you spend time shining a light on your limited language patterns it could change everything for the better.
Try these, and see if you can drop them into your internal dialogue somehow:
I AM GRATEFUL
I AM HAPPY
I AM LOVED
I AM HEALTHY
I AM ABUNDANT
It doesn’t take much attention to get the hang of using your words more wisely. You can even spend time intentionally each day focussing on affirmations that will help to rewire old patterns. The magic that will unfold in your life as the result of claiming new I AM statements is a game changer. You’ll also start to notice that you become more careful with the words you choose to use when you’re conversing with others.
Try it, be gentle with yourself, and enjoy the process of owning your new soul statements. xo
