27/03/2017 | eaglespi | Leave a comment Affirmations. Making firm in your mind what you wish to be experiencing. Self-help gurus often tell you to keep doing your affirmations as they have prescribed and eventually, after great practice of ‘faking it till you make it’, you too can BE, DO or HAVE what it is you desire. But what if that still small voice within screams every time you tell one of those ‘little white lies’? Or how about the pout your inner child puts on when you pretend to be all serious and grown up? How tight does your tummy get every time you get up and get ready to go to a job you hate but keep on doing because, from the outside, it looks like you have made it? On a soul level, you know when you are fooling yourself. And each time you do, you dim your own light. Fitting in to what others tell you that you ‘should’ (one of my big red flag words to watch for) be, do or have can be soul destroying. And at some point it catches up with you. Illness. Relationship issues. Obstacles on that guaranteed career path. Stop it. Give yourself permission to stop faking it. It’s your time to shine. Your ‘you-ness’ is needed. Or else you wouldn’t be here. Trust me. Reflection Questions: Is there any part of your life that you are “faking” it right now? How does that make you feel? Have you consciously used affirmations before? How have they worked for you? Do you have a favourite? Let me know your thoughts in the comment section below. Sending you much love!
