9 Affirmations to Open Your Heart

file000749739082

My body is talking to me; yours is too. The question is–are you listening? How can you and I listen to the cues our internal selves push to the external?

I’m convinced we listen with our hearts. I don’t know about you but I’m occasionally guilty of allowing things to block my heart.

Things like moving too fast through my days, not nurturing my body, not caring for my soul and just plowing on like doing is much more important than being.

Money worries get in the way if I allow it.  And I’ve been allowing. Push, then push some more.

How can I make more money? How many more clients do I need?

Sometimes I catch myself working for money instead of working to serve others. I’ve been guilty of writing for money instead of writing for others.

Priorities askew, once again, and my body keeps talking.

My blood pressure is too high and there’s something going on with my kidneys that has to do with not properly releasing toxins. What? Me not let go of something?

Within the last few days, my heart started listening, though. Awareness is a powerful motivator (as is fear!) Listening requires a partnership with action, I think. When action follows awareness, or listening, then change is inevitable.

Part of my process for change includes affirmations. They always seem to help my heart listen.

I uncovered these nine simple thoughts a few days ago and they seem to help settle me; maybe they’ll do the same for you if you’re dealing with a life challenge.

I have faith that divine order is working in my life.

Love is my nature, so I let love stream forth.

With God-given vision, I perceive good and bring it to reality.

I abstain from my ego’s false perceptions.

The good I seek is looking for me.

I am a radiant point of light.

I let my thoughts be love intentions.

Today, I judge no thing and no one. 

Be here, find peace in recovery. (You may notice that’s the new tag line for this blog–check out the header!)

      Hey Betsy,

      That’s probably one of favorites too! Here’s the one I woke with this morning: “In everything, give thanks.” I think affirmations give me a little internal accountability.

      Have a great Friday!

    Great post. When times are tough, I try to see the good things, the positive things. I say to myself, “you are blessed, God is watching over you.”
