One of the most powerful things we can ever say is I AM!
What’s standing in our way of having our life flow on all levels?
We have tremendous power—the power of our words and emotions. It’s
our hearts that give the power to our thoughts. Is there conflict
between our hearts and our thoughts? What do we keep in our heart?
Have we examined it? And are we aware of what resides there?
Love is always the answer. What keeps us from filling our hearts
with love? Why don’t we just stuff our heart with love and allow
this endless well we have within to flow freely? I believe it’s
because we haven’t cleaned out the hurt and anger and shame and
guilt. Either we haven’t owned these emotions, or they’re so
repressed we don’t know they’re there or we feel justified in
We need to practice, practice, practice monitoring our thoughts
and feelings. We cannot let discord go out from us, for it will only
come back to us sooner or later.
One of the most powerful things we can ever say is I AM . . .
followed by whatever else we say. Life will always give us what we
believe. Use I AM and notice what follows.
I am angry. I am loving. I am afraid. I am at peace. I am
helpless. I am joyous. I am frustrated. I am allowing. Life is
listening. Life is always listening and responding. When we add one
word to our I AM sentences, we see the awareness it will bring. When
we say, I am aware, we become more aware. We expand our awareness.
We can’t change until we are aware of what needs changing. We’re
more in tune with the world around us, and we see more of what’s
going on within us. That’s our growth and our freedom.
When we say I am aware, we’ll find that we automatically add the
word that. Our sentences then become I am aware that . . . I feel
angry. Not that I am angry, but that I feel angry. Or I feel afraid,
I feel helpless, I feel frustrated.
Again, we’re talking about taking our power back. Who’s the “I”?
Who feels these emotions? We’re talking about the divine,
magnificent being within us. And we’re talking about choice. We
begin to realize that we’ve chosen to feel a certain way. And we can
choose again! We’re not helpless. We become aware that we feel
helpless. Perhaps you say, I am aware that I feel annoyed. Then you
can say to that thought and feeling: Thank you for sharing, and now
be on your way; go to the light and be transformed. Consciously
using the symbol of light adds power to our knowingness. When we
bring light into the dark areas, we see differently. When we send an
unwanted thing to the light, it’s dissolved.
We can consciously fill ourselves with light. We’re protected.
When we fill ourselves with light, we become more aware. Learn more
about light and how to use it.
I am aware that . . . I am a divine, magnificent, expression of
Life. I express all this and more. For I am an unlimited being,
forever unfolding. And I rejoice that this is so. All is well in my
world now and forevermore.
And so it is!
