“You are what you think you are.” Z~
Life has a way of throwing many curve balls in your path. My life has been no exception to those very unpleasant curve balls. From a broken heart, to a broken soul, to coming down a negative spiral….I’ve been everywhere.
In those very very negative times, the few things that helped me heal were my faith in the Divine and my own self talk.
Although spirituality came to me at a very early age, its not until pretty late that I realized it wasn’t anyone or anything that’s hurting me…it was me all along! HOW? My own thinking was eating me alive. When I read and learnt about positive thinking and positive affirmations…I was already too muddled to realize the full benefits of this simple healing magic. It was while IN one of these trying times that I revisited my own thoughts and began putting my knowledge to good practical use. Within no time, I was OUT of my negative patterns and could see clearly. I was feeling alive again.
Don’t wait to Heal
I don’t want YOU to wait to heal…till its too late and you are left with more regrets than good memories. The time to heal is NOW! I want you to decide that you are going to take the first imperative step to heal…..and that step is to cut the problem at its root: our thinking. The best way to start is by using affirmations. The what, why and how to use Positive Affirmations was answered in the second part of this series of articles.
My Favorite Positive Affirmations

I asked some of the Big Wigs of Personal Development about what was their favorite affirmation and why. Here are the enlightening replies:
Sandra Pawula @ Always Well Within : “I am loving awareness.” Thoughts and emotions are ever-changing like the clouds. But loving awareness – my true essence – is vast and open like a brilliant blue sky. Relaxed, spacious, and at ease, when I center myself in loving awareness I am carefree.
Angela Artemis @ Powered By Intuition : Discovering affirmations has been like discovering that magic is real! Louise Hay’s book, “You Can Heal Your Life,” will help you to tame the “monkey mind” and change your life from the inside out. I have purchased twenty copies and given 19 away since first reading this book in 1990 – that’s how important I think it is. If you haven’t read it – you should. It will change your life. My Favorite affirmation “I experience love wherever I go.”
Aileen @ Kaizen Vision : I’ve been working with affirmations since I was about 18 they can be incredibly powerful. Affirmations have allowed me to become a more positive person. They’ve increased the quality of my life, relationships, and life experiences by allowing me to become more courageous, more assertive, and more confident. They’ve allowed me to change the way I see myself and life.
Two of my current favorite life affirmations are: “I am so grateful, I am so blessed. Thank you God for all of my blessings and abundance even the ones I cannot see.” This one helps when I’m feeling that nothing is really working out the way I’d like, and I’m feeling down. It’s a great pick-me-up reminding me there’s so much more than I comprehend at the moment. And this one, “There is nothing that will happen to me today that together with God I cannot handle. God loves me, and everything is unfolding perfectly. I am safe, guided and protected. And all is well.”
Vidya Sury @ Going A Musing : Affirmations are an integral part of my life, as I learned to think positive at a very early age. One of my favorites is Henry Ford’s “Whetheryou think that you can or you can‘t, you‘re usually right.” I approach everything I do with an “I can” attitude, grounded by this strong belief-turned-faith that I am responsible for my own happiness.This helps me put my best foot forward and give 100% to whatever I do, and my efforts are focused on the desired outcome. Affirmations make me comfortable in my own skin, enhancing my self-confidence and make a positive difference in the lives I touch.
