Affirmations – Language for the Sacred Soul


Many, many years ago when I consciously first decided to embarked on my own healing path I had a very “strange” healing session with a woman who believed in some things very “strange” to my very left brain way of thinking at the time. But I liked her so I did what she told me to do. I also knew that all the ‘normal’ things I was doing to get on a better life path weren’t working. It was time for some ‘strange’ medicine. Her medicine included chanting, long purifying baths infused with specific essential oils and crystals, and repeating long affirmations that she gave to me. I had nothing to lose. My life needed a kick in the pants and I wasn’t going to let a little weirdness get in the way!

The thing that strikes me these days about those days is how I ever thought those things weird – they’re not anymore! I’ve seen the light! I found my way! Scented purifying baths are marvelous, as is chanting, as are affirmations! But more than just feeling good – they work!

Today in my own healing practice and energy classes these elements are essential to the work my clients do for themselves at home. In fact when we are trying to restructure a belief pattern or long-standing habits affirmations are the surest way to get there.

By-Passing Our Illusions

The main idea of using affirmations is to replace a negative belief pattern with a positive one. By changing the belief pattern we in effect re-program the way we think and feel about a particular situation. Affirmations are more than just positive thinking though. Specifically, they are a way to vibrationally attach to the truths hidden within the most  Sacred aspect of ourselves. In using affirmations we appeal to the Divine, using truth to trigger positive responses in our unconscious psyche.

When working with affirmations you are not communicating with the illusion part of yourself that believes in fear and your weakness. You are learning to establish a vital relationship with the divine you that hasn’t forgotten your truth. This may, in some case, only be a small spark, but it still exists none-the-less. Affirmations appeal to higher truths – DIVINE TRUTH not PERSONAL TRUTH !

We live in a fear based illusory world that is constructed in finite ways to solve finite problems. The ever niggling and corrosive problem to this way of solving problems is that we are not finite…we are infinite. We human beings are dynamic expressions of infinite, unparalleled power. When we begin to believe in our small determined boxes of life we quickly become stalemated. Our bodies begin dying and decaying. Our minds become smaller and more rigid. And we become dull, emotionally bitter and disappointed. It is our evolutionary purpose to grow and flourish. The body is designed to regenerate and survive. When we limit our potential expression the soul becomes anguished expressing itself through painful bodies and heart brokedness!

Firing Up New Possibilities

The energy of the creative forces of our universe are positive, dynamic and light filled. Every molecule enabled by positive energy creates more life. To step into a cycle that affirms life, creates health and presents possibility we must learn to open doors and build pathways, in fact neuro – pathways. The brain hard wires where it fires.  Only by allowing new thought and new solutions will the brain stay flexible and healthy.

Positive and affirmative words align us with the forces of creation, and as such they claim and appropriate all that is yours by Divine right. We have unfortunately been conditioned to believe that there are ‘haves’ and ‘have-nots’ in society and that we fall into these groups more by chance than by planning. In truth we have a choice on how to approach life and further how we can attract and experience the life that we want.

Be clear on this; you – by your words, your actions, and belief systems are already creating the life that you have. Therefore if you don’t like what you have and think you would prefer something different then you must choose to express yourself differently. It’s that simple. We determine the quality of our life by the way we align ourselves with all that is possible, good and bad, positive and negative. Remember that everything is a matter of vibration, and like attracts like.We exist in a dualistic world. There is equal unbiased possibility and opportunity of living life either in a positive expression or a negative one. To transcend our dualistic world is a matter of choice of influence. Our thoughts, words and actions will determine to which end of the spectrum we will gravitate. It is easier and more natural than you might assume to become positively orientated. It is our natural state of being. The human organism is a creative machine. It’s entire physical function creates and recreates on a second by second basis. It is really quite astounding to realize that we are more likely to get in our way than go with our natural flow. Shifting towards a positive expression is like lighting a candle in the darkness. Affirmation is the match that initiates the flame of our inner candle. Once lit, the way becomes clear.

Benefits of Using Affirmations

Through repetitive affirmation man gains conscious awareness and insight to innate intelligence.

  • We awaken the mind to recognize what is already working at a sub-conscious level in the body – cells, tissues, and organs.
  • We accelerate the need to harmonize and respond to positive situations and results
  • We begin to witness how the body is the servant to the mind, malleable to thoughts and words
  • We control the mindless chatter of negative thoughts
  • We create discipline, focus and one-pointed thinking.

An affirmation is a statement that expresses life, health and wholeness. By using affirmation we stimulate a positive consciousness in the body; arousing the power of the mind in the body and calling it into action. As the positive mind becomes established in the body, healing is moved into action and immediately begins to rectify any imbalances in the physical.

Fake It ‘Til You Make It!

It is not necessary to believe an affirmation when you begin. In fact the really important faulty believe systems that you are challenging will fight tooth and nail to maintain their position of strength in your mind.  The purpose of using affirmations is to reprogram a faulty thought pattern gently, unobtrusively, slipping under the wire appealing to your higher, finer divine self. Like a weak muscle you will gently coax strength back into a forgotten truth and bring it back to conscious mind. Initially you must fake it ‘til you make it. You are not lying to yourself, you are just side stepping the false programming you hold.

Persistent positive affirmation will uplift consciousness out of negativity to allow for health filled patterns to take root. As the subconscious shifts towards light so will the body. When the heart mind consciousness becomes infused with light it will finally realize its sacred power.

I AM a Sacred Divine being with unlimited potential! And So Are You!

Calling all Dreamers and Lightworkers – Your Destiny is Now!


I warn you right now, before you read another word, today I’m being deadly serious. In light of the happenings on our earth and in our consciousness over the past couple of weeks it’s time to get seriously REAL! I’m talking about you starting to live as the Divine Being you really are – the Earth needs you to.  YOU are each wondrous Beings of Light and possibility, here on earth at this time in history to help birth the new changes! It’s time to step up to the plate! Your destiny is here now!

The Situation

We – all human beings on earth –  are sitting in a precarious state these days. Our earth is rocking and rolling, shifting and shimmying and her people are becoming deeply frightened. People who had previously ignored the turmoil and upheaval in the world are suddenly waking to the crisis that millions are facing daily. People around the world are crying tears of empathy and sorrow for their fellow beings’ trauma and hardships. But compassionate crying is not what is needed now. Now we need strength and clarity if we want to heal and evolve consciousness. We need all hands on deck on Starship Earth! It is critical that we begin to direct all our focus on our strengths, our possibility and most importantly on our Divinity. It is vital that we begin to see ourselves as sacred expressions of Divine Light if we intend for humanity to survive these incumbent earth changes.

I want to be very clear here – this truly is not a doomsday warning. I don’t know, no one knows, what our world will be like when all the dust settles and the waters recede. I’m sure for the people of the many countries that have been so tragically hit by drought, flood, earthquake, tsunami, tornadoes, and fire,  it must seem as though the very worst has already happened. Their lives are irreparably changed. And these are just a few of the many natural devastating events that have happened recently, never mind the politically based atrocities that happen continuously on one continent or another. I couldn’t guess what the outcome of the coming years will be. Who’ll be safe and who’ll be endangered is not however relevant to the outcome. As far as I’m concerned we’re all in it together. Nothing sets us apart except our geographical locations. The entire earth and her populations will be required to continuously adapt as living species after species are eradicated from our biosphere. What happens to one happens to all equally. It’s time to step out of the illusion that tells you that the horrific things that are happening to the earth and her people are not happening to you. What happens to one of us – affects all of us.

It’s time to wake up, we’re living a nightmare!

The prophecies are ominous, the science is nebulous, some religions offer ideas of salvation for select numbers and chosen denominations. The masses however remain confused and worried. It’s like we are living in a nightmare and just like being in a dream we feel almost powerless to change the course of events as they continue to unfold. The only thing most people agree on is that a transition is near. We are approaching a time in history, a date, after which no one has any idea of what will happen. We are however, agreed that we are entering a new uncharted era. We are in transition and we need a plan!

It’s time to let go and let God! In a very big way! But I’m not suggesting that you just give up…I’m saying that it is time to just wake up, let go of the nightmare and fear and let your Divine nature take hold of the reins.


To wake up we must implement a strategy now, for now, to get us through now. We can only heal in the now. To heal a problem, dysfunction or system of dis-ease we need to do 3 things:

i) Come into full awareness of the problem as it exists, without judgment or blame or believing in fairy tales endings. Just see it for what it is. Step into the real moment – NOW.

ii) Adopt healthy, sustainable life-generating values, principles and habits. Stop indulging in habits that don’t support growth, expansion and life.

iii) Understand yourself and cultivate yourself as an empowered Divine Being with the ability to make choices of unlimited resource and potential. Begin conducting yourself with all your senses balanced in heart and mind.

You are Greater than You Realize!

It is becoming increasingly critical that we learn to understand ourselves fully as an integral part of earth and earth consciousness. As the earth moans and groans and adjusts her great body to move through the galaxy at this time in history we are obligated to understand that we are along for the ride. It is our option to continue behaving as parasites upon the surface of the earth, sucking the life out of our host with out a care for her survival, only looking after our own relative comfort. Be aware that eventually, as the living species that are extensions of elemental earth perish and become extinct, our own parasitic selves become vulnerable to death. However, if we were to embrace ourselves as conscious living extensions of earth as well and recognize our innate Divine aspect, there is a hope, not primarily for survival, but for successful transition.

Most of us know that the truest essence of ourselves is not restricted to being this imperfect vulnerable physical body that walks a few short years upon the surface of earth, but rather that we are divine in nature and that our true spirit is intrinsically connected to all spirit and thus ultimately that spirit will survive all physical devastation. Our challenge then becomes not of surviving physical life, but in not creating negative karma that will continue to hinder the growth of generations to come. What we do today will inevitably influence what our future generations have to contend with.

Consider that by our actions and reactions, our successors will either be starting again, struggling from scratch, back to square one, like has happened at least 4 times before in our history on planet earth or that there exists a possibility of continued expansion and growth from this day forward. Perhaps if we were to conduct our selves with grace, gratitude, responsibility, forgiveness, love and compassion we could lessen the burdens of  excessive emotional and spiritual baggage that we have carried forward to date and are already shipping into the future.

Create an Inspired Vision for Life

Imagine a new world that is guided in wisdom and love; a world where we are aware of our history and are no longer required to engage in power struggles and greed to the detriment of our fellow beings in consciousness. Imagine that we have all learned our lessons well, and that we, through self forgiveness and compassionate understanding, understand the roles we have all played in the devastation of our earth as she is today but also that we are able to celebrate in her renewal and long-term survival.

Spirit will re-manifest itself for expression somewhere again in time and space. Great mystics, visionaries, scientists and healers have always known that life extends beyond the confines of our physical expressions, beyond life on earth in fact. There is life within life, many systems of life, co-existing and interdependent. We humans are but one stream of sentient consciousness.

In this blog site I’ve written a lot about empowerment, making choices, sacred geometry, divine expression over the years. These are not idle self-interested musings with vague purpose. The purpose of this blog is to address our changing world and her conditions. As the stewards of this little spinning Garden of Eden, we are obligated to develop strategies for her survival and yet we have steadfastly refused to tend to her care. We have failed miserably and we are now sit facing imminent disaster and self-destruction.

It is not too late to recommit and reinvest our attention and intentions for a healthy vibrant outcome. We need to adopt new ways of coping and handling life force energy quickly if we intend to create a peaceful, sustainable future. Specifically we need to adopt those qualities NOW~ We need to embrace sustainable and regenerative thoughts, act with love and compassion, refuse the indoctrination of fear and warring from the powers that be and live generously with grace. We are unlimited sources of energy, able to visualize and actively create a new destination than the one we are currently headed towards. If we want future generations to be able to experience peaceful life on Earth we need to plant those spiritual seeds now so a new expression of earth can be birthed.
