Affirmations create powerful transformations in our lives. I’m talking about mind-blowing-overnight-that’s-just-crazy-how-that-happened transformations. However, I didn’t always believe that. My affirmations didn’t actually work for me at first, and I didn’t understand why they were falling flat. I blamed the very concept of affirmations for my lackluster results. After all, I was doing everything right – or was I? Like me, you might have an excellent affirmation practice, yo
Changing THEIR mind isn’t the point! Today our culture is “polarized.” There appears to be two choices. Both sides point at the other in horrified disbelief, asking, “After all that has been demonstrated that supports the Truth (our views), how can they still believe THAT?” This is not a new phenomenon. Our culture was polarized in the 70’s with the hippie culture and the Vietnam War. We were also polarized with race riots, women’s rights, the McCarthy Era, Prohibition, the C
Self-awareness is a choice to go within. It is the only path to our authenticity and, thus, our fulfillment.

You can also gain the power to transform your life into one that is more vibrant and fulfilling when you let your inner voice guide you instead of trying to “figure it out” all the time.
Are your negative internal dialogues keeping you from doing things you want to do? Do you sometimes feel you are not enough, or are not up to achieving your goals? Positive affirmations are regularly used as a solution for these thoughts. However, they get mixed reviews. How Affirmations Work Many of us swear by their power, while others feel foolish or are turned off by how unrealistic the statements seem initially. Affirmations are short, positive statements that interrupt
Many of us have been noticeably uncomfortable for several months now. Take that in for a moment. Breathe. Now, do you recall that when you’ve been comfortable for a long time (like back in 2019) you get a little stale? Do you know why that is? It’s because comfort and growth simply do not occur at the same time. It is a Law of the Universe. You must choose one – or one will choose you. Of course, our natural inclination is to be comfortable. After all, comfort is safety, and
