Affirmations to me are a very ancient kind of prayer where we acknowledge that we are part of the source we pray to. When I pray I ask God, the Universe, the Creator (whoever might be listening at the time).. for help.... When I state an affirmation I feel as though I cross a threshold and become a part of the vastness that holds the reality of my words. It is a very special feeling.
As the years went by I have tried affirmations from many people.. Louise Hay, Wayne Dwyer, Tony Robbins, Deepak Chopra.. the list is endless and each time I experienced a profound shift.
Creating these affirmations for the Heart of Gaia I felt inspired to go beyond an affirmation for me as an individual. What if we could connect with the Heart of our Earth and through that connection connect with the heart of all forms of life ?
First the idea sounded too big. Yet, the voice of intuition encouraged me to keep trying. In the end I created 28 layered images. Each has an affirmation.
Create a sacred moment. Choose an uncluttered beautiful space in your home. Light a candle and play some music which resonates with your soul. Have the days affirmation in front of you on your phone, tablet, lap top or computer.
I would like you to place your right hand on your heart, and the left hand towards the earth. Then look at the image of each affirmation on the given day. Look deeply into the image. On the inhale take in the energy of the words and the image. Notice the details on the image. Sometimes you might want to close your eyes. Follow your own intuition and heart. On the exhale radiate it to the heart of the earth. Do this for a few minutes. When you feel one with the affirmation and the vastness of our Earth start radiating it to the hearts of all life on Earth. See what images come up as you immerse in this frequency and spread the new reality.
When you feel it is complete - that is when to stop the affirmation.
Some affirmations may feel more uphill and distant from your reality. If that is the case think of those who might have mastered that state of being. Connect with their energy to help you ground and uplift your own energy.
I encourage you to be flexible with the time according to your daily schedule. Ideally do the affirmation twice a day. If time does not allow this do it once a day.
If you miss a day, catch up the next day.
