How You Use These Two Little Words Can Make or Break You

There are times when I hear myself or my clients or my friends say things like: I am confused. I am tired. I am sick. I am sad. I am overwhelmed. I bet you hear those words come out of your own mouth too.

Well, they simply aren’t true!

You may FEEL tired or sick or sad or whatever is going on at the time, but it is not who you are.

When you continuously reinforce those self-limiting labels by saying them over and over again, you program yourself into believing they are true.

So, use the words “I am” very carefully. They may be small, but carry incredible power.

And, if you want to know who you really are:

Sit in a quiet place with pen and paper and start writing, “I am …”  Fill in the blank with whatever pops into your head. Keep writing until there is nothing left and you have reached the deepest truth. What most people find is that the first answers tend to be negative or superficial and the last connect with the more powerful spiritual truth of who you really are.

This exercise can be extremely grounding and also works well as a meditation where you simply say the words instead of writing them down.

I am. You are.

We are not tired or overwhelmed. We are wise. We are beautiful. We are powerful. We are love.

And, that is the truth!

    Totally agree Linda! I have been saying these words a lot lately and finally stopped myself this week! It’s so important to feel my feelings but also to let go of that habitual pattern of beating myself up and come into alignment with my true nature!! My life is so blessed and I am so grateful for all of it!! Thank you for shaing your brilliance !

    Thanks for this important reminder, Linda. Things have been (_____) for me, but when you and others share your words, it reminds me of how important it is to keep supporting and reinforcing the truth behind the illusions. Thanks a bunch!

      You are most welcome, Earl. I am sorry life has been challenging you and hope that the truth behind the illusions comes forward soon. And, when the doubt comes, focus on who you really are – a beautiful soul having a human experience.
