Activating Affirmations

“An affirmation is a strong, positive statement that something is already so.”

Shakti Gawain

One of my coping mechanisms and personal mantras when growing up in a conflict zone was “it’s not safe to share what I feel or think. I might get killed.”

This was a negative belief and lie from the pit of hell to frighten, silence and oppress. Uncovering lies and limiting beliefs is a necessary part of the healing and recovery process in our lives. I dissolve them with directly opposite positive affirmations. For example, today my creative affirmation which I wholeheartedly believe in is:

My creativity heals myself and others.

I'm a life long learner. I've been on a voyage of discovery since childhood so ask why a lot. I'm Irish and a bit American. I write because its freeing and healing. I love photography, theology, the natural beauty of Ireland and swimming in the sea year round. I see the world through the lens of Celtic Christianity but can try on other perspectives. The business of everyday spirituality has always fascinated me. I hope this blog challenges, inspires and encourages you. Perhaps you'd like to work with me. Please reach out to me if that's the case. I'd love to hear from YOU so please comment and let me know you are out there!
