I wanted to share something with you and ask about your practice (if you use them at all).
I affirm daily. I use them all the time. When I began, it was to affirm things I desired to be true. I have found that my perception is shifting. I am internalizing them. I am love. I am peace. I AM one with all creation, with all the universe. It's very freeing. And, my dependence on love from others is very decreased. I believe that I am whole, healed and complete. So, my need for reassurance on that is very small.
Are you noticing a shift in your thoughts, in your self-perception?
AND, do you feel affirmations without really EXAMINING yourself and KNOWING who you are is useful or do you feel that you must do further inner work to reap the full benefit of them? Do you feel they can shift your energy all on their own?
I feel they are very powerful. I use them most days on my walking meditations. The ones I use most commonly are I AM peace, I AM whole, I AM healed, I AM love, I AM loved, I AM a magnet for miracles, but I add others in as befit the day.
As I am doing an almost daily practice I don't feel I need to do any further "work". That is the "work". But I learned that from you!
I would not say I am "there" yet as I am still experiencing low-level fears / anxieties. I had a lot of fear to shift, in fairness. I am getting "there" though.
It is the work! You are so right.. but there will be times when the work leads to more work, as it were. When, in daily practice you will find yourself face to face with issues/baggage etc. that you (the collective you, not YOU specifically) have been avoiding and pow.. inner work must happen. lol.
The affirmations can make a huge shift in yourself... and your energy. However, with this shift comes ascension which will demand some self examination and some change in how you perceive things.xo
I currently suck at affirmations! I am trying to get better. When I realize I am thinking a negative thought, I have gotten better about flipping it to a positive affirmation. My desk at work is covered in them.
