Today I want to focus on mental wellness. You’ve been told about how powerful affirmations are, but have you heard of I AM statements?
Affirmations are statements of what you want to do, be, or have and they work for some and don’t seem to for others. I think the people who get them to work are those who have figured out that they need to write their affirmations in the present tense, as if they were true right now and add in emotion and gratitude. Like Bob Proctor’s statement: “I am so happy and grateful now that…”
That leads to I AM statements. I think I heard about this form of affirmation originally from James Ray and most recently at another personal growth seminar. I AM statements are more of a personal declaration than a goal or affirmation and are therefore more powerful. You start them with “I AM”, “I AM DOING”, or “I HAVE”. They are very much right now. When you say “I AM…” you are firmly telling your subconscious mind exactly how you see yourself right now and it really has no choice but to create that right now. It is very cool stuff. Of course, like any other affirmation, you want to read them and say them out loud two or more times a day, preferably before you fall asleep and right after you wake up in the morning.
You can take them another step and have them printed on a card and mailed to yourself. Choose a card with an inspirational picture on the front then list all of your I AM statements on the inside. My wife found a great online service that does this for a fraction of the cost of a regular card. If you go to her site at www.meaningfulmail.com and leave your name and email address in her contact form she will pay for your first card. Check it out.
I AM so happy and grateful now that I AM writing I AM statements.
