Personal Affirmation

One of my greatest fears had become that I would never live up to my potential. But recently, from the positive self love and self awareness that has been a huge practice with a lot of my life mentors and teachers, I began to start overcoming that past fear. I decided to be brave and to take matters into my own hands. I realized that the only way that I wouldn’t reach my potential is if I didn’t do what I needed to do. So I’ve started to affirm this to myself. I hope it helps you too.

Repeat as need:

I am not wasted potential.

I am living up to my greatest potential every moment of every day.

Personal Affirmation

I am limitless. I define myself.

*

The only limits you will ever have are the ones you inflict upon yourself. No one can ever take away your spirit, your heart, your soul, or your light. It is yours and yours alone. People can physically infringe upon you and cause you literal harm, but when it comes to your mind and spirit, that’s all you.

Many of us are taught stifling and limiting ideals and beliefs when we are children. It is our job to unlearn those things. We must live our own lives and find out for ourselves what it is and isn’t, who is and isn’t, what does and doesn’t serve us. It is up to us to live, try, explore, think, and do for ourselves. –  AJ

Pain

Pain is necessary, suffering is not

Pursue your passions, accept your struggle. Let your pain shape you, and love transform you.” 

         – Mirtha Michelle, Castro Mármol

Pain is a tool to be used and learned from. It is meant to help us. It assists in our growth, which makes it an important factor in life. We just need to remember this, and pain itself, as well as letting go after the experience, won’t be an issue. 

Suffering, on the other hand, is neither necessary or useful. Suffering begets extra negativity that we do not need. It is what causes us to hold on. Holding onto things, emotions, ideas, and people we do not need and that do not serve us is unnecessary. We do not have to suffer. Suffering is a self-inflicted mechanism that we have 100% control over.

Accept what you can not change, and learn to change what you can. Always be on the learning curve. Pain is your ally. 

Feel and let go. Attach yourself to nothing except Love. 

Love: A Verb and A Being

EVOLution. REVOLution. sOLUTION.

 There is a reason that these words are framed this way.

 Love is a verb. Love is action. Love is what you do. And love is a being. It is a literal, physical form.

 It is you. It is me. It is US. WE Are Love. We are the force that saves us. We are the force that creates, destroys, and makes change. We are ever evolving.

 Borders do not exist, they were created. Races do not exist, they were created. Class does not exist, it was created. Separation is not the answer, unity is. Being involved with life is the answer. Caring about yourself and others is the answer. 

 Show up, do your best, and always come back to Love. Come home to yourself. 

 

The Key

“You attract what you are, not what you want.”
We each have to put in the effort to get what we want and need. Be all that you wish. Work on yourself, every day. There is no limit to what you can achieve when you act of love and with love. 

Soul Journey

A personal note.

The personal journey is a messy roller coaster that is ever changing. Its hard and it’s crazy, and it can be overwhelming. At the same time, that is also what makes the growth so worth it. That feeling of knowing what you came through, what you survived, and what you overcame to get where you are. That is a beautiful feeling. I’m trying to remember that.

Growth is a gift and so is everything that comes with it. I enjoy the highs and am so grateful for the beauty that is Life in all its infinite, wondrous glory. I am just as grateful for the lows. They aren’t fun while you’re there but they really do so much for us in helping to make this life what it is. That sense of fulfillment through self-care and self-love is truly indescribable. And even more potent when you realize that it was you who made it through. You had help from great guides, teachers, and influences along the way, but it was you who did the work and came out victorious.

I’m going through a phase of self-discovery and the Universe is testing me to see what I’m  really made of. Boy do I have some work to do. But all I can think right now is to be grateful. When you see life that way it really does help and make whatever situation you’re in better. Being in a constant state of gratefulness brings forth the concrete strength that lies within you. You have to work at it and it is a huge trail, but it is vital not to give in.

It is also imperative to make sure, especially this day in time when there is so much out there to absorb, to have positive, kind, goodhearted, humble guides, teachers, and inspirations to look up to and learn from. They are key to your journey. We are in full control of what we give attention to and the energy that we absorb through social media (a great perk!). Use that wisely. You don’t have to absorb bad energy and negativity. It’s always going to be there but you NEVER have to give power to it.

Stay focused on you and your journey. Do everything you can to stay within yourself and not get caught up with things that stifle, and hinder you. Feel what you feel, let whatever comes come, and let go of whatever needs to be released. We all have the innate senses to know what we need and don’t need. Be smart and work smart, not hard. Grind but do not wear yourself out. And whenever you find yourself out of alignment, acknowledge it and come back to your core.

The Source lies within you. Your Source is in your core, it is your core. Remember. Come back to your core, your center. There you will find all you need. In your core lies all the answers. In your core lies your connection to all, to everything within and outside of you. That connection is Life. That is who and what you truly are. You are the Sun, the Moon, the Stars. You are a Milky Way, a Galaxy, the Universe. Your body is temporary but You are Infinite. You everything, everywhere, and everlasting.  Remember. Love. Love yourself, love others, enjoy the journey.

Step Up

“Don’t talk, ACT. Don’t say, SHOW. Don’t promise, PROVE.” 

                            – Halle Berry
I’ve used this quote before but it is more relevant and necessary now more than ever. It is absolutely vital that each of us does our part to be a part of our global community. We, as humanity, need to unite and actively work to better ourselves, life, and the world. We must be a part of leaving this world a better place than we found it.
