I awaken on this 50th birthday feeling healthy, happy and fully alive. I know there are many people who struggle to just get out of bed each day. My heart goes out to them. I truly feel that my mission here is to give weary people the tools to allow them to wake up to an easier, healthier and more meaningful life each and every day and to do it naturally, without drugs. Somewhere along the line I learned how to take care of myself well, and by doing so I have plenty of energy to help others.
Today I feel moved to comment on the concept of “POWER WORDS”. I think of two things when it comes to power words :
1) Specific words chosen for healing sequences
As most of you know, I am crazy about positive affirmations. These are statements that usually start with the words I or I am. Here are some of the words I use over and over again on a regular basis. Can you think of more?
Allow, love, receive, celebrate, forgive, reflect, rejoice, welcome, serve, believe, create, relax, restore, surrender, release, heal, grow
2). Powerful volume, cadence and inflection words are given as they are spoken.
Many of you who have worked with me in either groups or individually know that I believe that the spoken word, both affirmations and emphatic speech, adds fuel to EFT treatments and the healing process in general. As someone who has spent decades as a rather quiet, soft-spoken person, the transition to louder, dramatic speech was not an easy one for me.
Emphatic speech can sometimes make our statements sound very silly, bringing us to giggle uncontrollably. When this happens, it is accompanied by enormous healing, so I urge everyone to play along with the laughter that might flow. Turn up the volume and amp up your word drama, and then observe how you experience the Law of Attraction!
I am grateful to my teachers Maryam Webster, founder of the Certified Energy Coach Program and Gary Craig, originator of EFT (www.emofree.com) who have allowed their NLP training (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) to rub off on me. Although I have yet to studied NLP in a formal sense, the notion that the spoken word and the vibration of sound has power to transform beliefs is evident in my experience. I will also credit my ACEP Certification Consultant, Dr. Barbara Stone with again reinforcing that emphatic speech patterns are often the subtle part of the healing that gets through, even when dealing with the most difficult cases.
Choose your words carefully and speak them deliberately. Here are some affirmations I have created in celebration of my 50th birthday, my gift to myself and also to you:
I love the life that I have been given
My body serves me well and offers wisdom to me at all times and at all stages of life
I celebrate that my health is improving now, even as I age
I am remarkably resiliant and wise enough to know when I need to stop for self-care
I overcome my troubles as I face them head-on, learning, growing and improving constantly
I am consistent and dependable in my ways, allowing others to like, trust and respect me.
I allow myself to be guided through the eternal source of Divine energy, GOD
I am love
