Creating an affirmation is a form of prayer, in a way, but it is powerful statement of intent rather than a supplication. It focuses on affirming rather than believing or wishing, or even hoping. The wording has to be precise because each word not only has meaning, but power. This power is an energy that can change the very vibratory energy of your mind, emotions and surroundings. It can uplift your mood, change the energetic structure of your body and create a more peaceful world. When we are happy, content, filled with joy and positive energy, we transmit this through our auras and can potentially affect everyone we come into contact with, merely by radiating our vibrations through our subtle bodies.
Years ago I created this affirmation that I use to set my intention for the day. I had attended a workshop based on the classic by Ernest Holmes called “The Science of Mind”. Using some guidelines from the book we worked on creating an affirmation for ourselves. Mine was rather lengthy, I guess I wanted to make sure all bases were covered!
I am a center in the Divine Mind
A point of God-conscious Truth, Light and Action.
All of my affairs are Divinely guarded and guided into right action
and into correct results
All suggestions of age, poverty and limitation are uprooted from my mind,
and cannot gain entrance to my thoughts
For I am well and happy, filled with perfect life and blessed with perfect abundance
I give grateful thanks, for I know it is so NOW.
As the years have passed, I have come to realize what exactly it is that I am stating; how we are merely a Spark, a part of the Divine Mind or Power or Field of Consciousness that exists. I am an individualized expression of that Power, living a life on this planet at this time. By stating my intentions, I have been guided into experiencing many things, learned much but overall, there is a mind-set that has been created that has seen my through difficult times so that the “correct results” have occurred as part of my life lessons.
Create your own, use it to empower you. Choose your words carefully, for you will manifest what you believe. Let us build a better world by starting with ourselves!
Have a glorious day!
