Affirmation Station

A few of the blogs, sites and courses I have been reading an a part of have slowly become strong part of my life. Some have manifested themselves into Vision Books. Some have manifested themselves into Wallpaper and pinned on my wall. Some have become part of my bathroom mirror. Some have become part of my daily ritual as Affirmations.

I have so many Affirmations around everywhere I have an added for my room- Affirmation Station.

These affirmations are becoming my life force.

I don't know what I would do right now if I didn't have ENOUGH from Brave Girls to recite every day to remind me I AM ENOUGH. If I didn't read Expectations and Manifesto of Encouragement from White Hot Truth.

These parts are ESPECIALLY pertinent to me right now

right now:

There are Tibetan Buddhist monks in a temple in the Himalayas endlessly reciting mantras for the cessation of your suffering and for the flourishing of your happiness.
Someone you haven't met yet is already dreaming of adoring you.


Someone who is craving to be partnered, to be acknowledged, to ARRIVE, will get precisely what they want -- and even more. And because that gift will be so fantastical in it's reach and sweetness, it will quite magically alter their memory of angsty longing and render it all "So worth the wait."

Someone wants to kiss you, to hold you, to make tea for you. Someone is willing to lend you money, wants to know what your favourite food is, and treat you to a movie. Someone in your orbit has something immensely valuable to give you -- for free.


If I didn't say aloud You Have Permission from Goddess Leonie. If I didn't read my Top Points from Declaration of You to remind me what Success and other words mean to me. Or if I didn't read How I Want to Feel from Jessica Swifts Goal Intention Kit.

How would I Show Up and Shine if I didn't see that first thing in the morning to make me get out of bed and do JUST that, SHOW UP.

How would I cope if I didn't read Everything is Going to be Okay on my wall.

I don't know what I would do if I didn't recite Abundance from Goddess Leonie every day before I walked out my door before breakfast.

How would I stay on track if I didn't have Brave Girl Truth Cards, Truth Teller posters and 12 Key Zen Habits near my office desk.

On those Sucky days and nights when I feel blah, crying and melancholy....how would I get out of it if I didn't have my De-Suckify Idea List right there to remind me.

And, I don't know what I would do without the Affirmations from Blissbomed that have become a part of my life like this one

Soon I am sure my room will be filled with these and books will be spilling out these mantras, mottos and affirmations. To some that may sound silly and crazy and busy.

To me it is the sound of healing...
