I woke up this morning feeling all girly as you can probably tell from today’s graphic. But I think it’s good to let your inner feminine shine brightly and sparkle to the nth degree – so ta da! Here we are!
In the infinity of life where I am, all is perfect, whole, and complete.Louise Hay
I’ll admit that when I first began to say affirmations by Louise Hay, this one struck me like a thorn in my side. It felt wrong somehow. Too Pollyanna and false for me. Just the words – perfect, whole and complete – razzed me because my life’s never felt perfect, whole nor complete. My rookie mistake was that I tried repeating it over and over, and each time it felt wrong. Until…I decided to let myself just be with it. So, with Louise Hay as a role model, I figured I’d just give it one more try and here’s what happened.
Open armed, eyes closed, standing as if I were to ready to embrace the world as my favorite friend, I began repeating it. With intention, with belief, erasing all doubts that made me waver from the affirmation, I stood there, feet grounded, body feeling centered, arms wide open, with an intentional smile on my face.
In the infinity of life where I am, all is perfect, whole, and complete. In the infinity of life where I am, all is perfect, whole, and complete. In the infinity of life where I am, all is perfect, whole, and complete. In the infinity of life where I am, all is perfect, whole, and complete. In the infinity of life where I am, all is perfect, whole, and complete.
Whenever my mind wandered into anything but that present moment of feeling good, I brought myself back to center and started again. It took me a long time to stay continuously in that present moment – a long time of repetitious recentering, but it was sooo worth it!
Because it changed the way I looked at my life. It changed the way I felt about my life and felt about myself, my circumstances, my feelings, my everything. I saw my life full of positive possibilities instead of negativity. I saw that in this moment all is well and that I didn’t need to do anything else but simply be present, joyful, and full of gratitude.
What a difference it made! Seriously! Gathering moments like that to string together, like a pearl necklace, makes a luminosity for your day like no other. Do you feel like trying it? I suggest you only do it for a few minutes at first because it can tire you out. Perhaps once in the morning and once at night – or even a quickie in the middle of the day if you can. Practice this for a week and let me know how you’re feeling.
I bet you’re smiling more and life feels better! Dare I say it’s like collagen for the soul?
