Nothing could be farther from the truth. We are all beautiful parts of the collective Universe and we are perfect the way we are right now. We are very loved by Spirit. When we utter or seriously think to ourselves such degrading thoughts as the one above, we are denying ourselves the truth, that we are beautiful, perfect beings.
That is precisely why it is important to think carefully before we speak, weighing each idea before we express it. By using positive, loving words when speaking about ourselves, other people, events, and situations, we manifest love and kindness in our lives. Our own love and kindness then radiate out into the Universe, affecting others around us. Have you ever been around a person who has been considered ‘vibrant?’ Well, that person probably was vibrating at a high energy frequency, having manifested true love and kindness in his or her own life. I think most of us would agree that it is truly a pleasure to be around such people, who are sincerely genuine in their expression of happiness and love toward all beings. How often do we hear these ‘vibrant’ people using negative expressions to describe something or someone? Do we ever hear them utter crude words? Most likely, the answer is “no.” You can also think of this as the idea that good things happen to good people. By thinking negative thoughts, it is not possible to manifest what we truly wish for.
By using positive expressions when speaking about ourselves, other people in our lives, and situations that are to come, we are sending love to ourselves, other people, and to future situations. Try it now, by saying to yourself, “I will have a beautiful day today. I am a being of love, light, and kindness. I use only positive words when speaking about myself, other beings, and situations. By using only good words, I manifest love and kindness in my life and positively affect everyone I meet today and everything that takes place around me.”
This is this week’s affirmation. You may wish to write it down (please feel free to alter the wording, to suit your own needs and wishes) on a piece of paper and carry it with you, reading from it and repeating the affirmation aloud whenever you feel guided. By writing down your affirmation, in your own hand writing, the message will become even more powerful. You may also wish to draw your favourite images around the affirmation, or use your favourite colours of ink for the words you find most powerful.
Try this challenge: please remember to choose your words carefully and speak only kind, loving words, even when dealing with difficult situations or people who may “rub you the wrong way.” Often, by sending love and kindness to such people, we can actually witness the energy shift that takes place, often within an instant moment; by sending positive thoughts and wishes to others, we actually send them the equivalent of a prayer, or a blessing. Of course, we may also send prayers and blessings to ourselves, whenever we wish, because we are perfect beings, worthy of love and kindness.
