“WHOO HOO, SO MANY BLESSINGS FOR 2017!” As I conclude 2017, I am choosing to think about and to be thankful for all the things that I am. There is nothing more powerful than whatever follows the words “I am!” “I am” has an attractive force, is creative and visionary, and should only be followed by what we want. I am blessed! I am grateful! I am wise! I am enough! I am wealthy! I am thankful! I am loved! I am loving! WHAT FOLLOWS YOUR “I AM?”
Thoughts become things and every thought has its own frequency. Whatever you focus your energy on, finds you. We attract those things that are in the frequency of what we think about and more importantly feel about. When I articulate that I am blessed, I think about my blessings, feel more grateful, and as a result, attract more blessings to me. When I articulate I am enough, that eliminates thoughts of lack. Like the two sides of a coin, you can only view heads or tails at any given time and not both.
If we follow up the word after “I am” with “for” or “because”, we open up a whole new world of creative possibilities because a grateful heart attracts blessings.
I am grateful for …
I am thankful for …
I am blessed because…
Unfortunately, too many people misuse their creative power by attracting through their words, emotions, and deeds the very things that they do NOT want to create. We have a choice in what follows “I am!” Just keep in mind that you are not just describing with I am, you are attracting and creating what follows it.
I am beautiful! OR I am ugly!
I am tired! OR I am energized!
I am powerful! OR I am weak!
I am blessed! OR I am forsaken!
I am at peace! OR I am angry!
I am appreciative! OR I am upset!
I am hopeful! OR I am depressed!
I am healing! OR I am sick!
Yes, “I am” can be a descriptive label; I am a woman. I am a mother. I am a friend. I am a soul! I am a poet. I am an entrepreneur. I am a wife. We must be very careful because labels can be positive or negative. Soren Kierkegaard wrote, “When you label me, you negate me!” Clearly, we are far more than our labels, but labels can be powerful guides. I am unlucky! I am doomed! I am powerless! I am a minority! I am hated! Sometimes, we choose labels that limit us. At other times, people may try to put a label on us. Just remember, we don’t have to claim any labels that do not uplift us. My daughter Radiance just shared a quote that I’d like to share with you to remind you of how special and important you are.
“Whenever you feel sad, just remember that there are billions of cells in your body and all they care about is you.” @MindsetOfGreatness
We have a choice; “I am” can also be empowering or debilitating! I choose to focus on the life-enhancing power. I am is visionary! I am healed! I am can also be limiting if you allow it to be. Now, I ask you this question, “When you use “I AM” in a sentence, what generally follows?”
The late Wayne Dyer explained, “We don’t describe the world we see, we see the world we describe.”
Put succinctly, what we see in our minds is what we end up creating in reality. The things we hold in our minds become us, for the reality of man is his thought. A new year is upon us and we have the opportunity to create what we want it to be. So, define and create your “I am!”
Happy New Year
