Unless you have been hiding under a rock, out on some deserted island or just don’t have a computer you have undoubtedly seen the YouTube video of Jessica’s affirmations. We posted it a few weeks ago on our facebook page and it was amazing to see how it was just, well, everywhere. Suddenly, it was all over facebook, it was on the front page of Aol, and now the original post is at close to two million hits. Everyone is loving little Jessica and her robust, enthusiastic affirmations.
That little girl, who was four at the time of the video, is what Abraham calls tuned in tapped in turned on, or, in the Vortex. She is in alignment with herself and what she wants and affirming it to the universe with such joy and clarity, you just can’t help but get swept up in it. Even the most negative, doubting people I know were mimicking that little girl and posting similar affirmations on their facebook pages or walking around exclaiming to themselves and the world.
We have all known about or have at least heard about affirmations. I use them on a daily basis and have for years, but a lot of people I know don’t, and don’t think affirmations have much power. Well they do. They get you to focus and line you up with what you want so you can actually start to feel what it would be like to be having or doing or being what you want. Oh, and don’t forget the most important part: it feels good!
Think about it: the reason anyone does anything is because they think they will be happy in the doing/having it. Why do you want more money? You think it will make you happy. Why do you want a great relationship? You think it will make you happy and will make you feel good. This pretty much applies to anything out there that you desire.
Yesterday I took my daughter to the orthodontist. When she went back, I sat in the reception area. They have a brand new huge flat screen TV that always seems to be on CNN. I am aware of what is going on out there in the world but I tend to stay away from things like CNN. It never feels that great when I watch, so I just don’t. Well, it was on and I was watching for a few minutes and they have one of those ticker things at the bottom of the screen and it is recapping the same 4 or 5 negative stories over and over. Urrrrg, I felt terrible and went outside to make a phone call. Watching that ticker, play over and over is an affirmation, a negative one. It is repeating something over and over until it is the truth to you. You can affirm what CNN wants you to think or you can be like little Jessica and affirm what you want to focus on and what feels good to you. It’s your choice. xo-K
My two cents: We say it over and over: focus on what you want, not what you don’t want and be in your joy while doing it.
I wasn’t crazy about facebook at first. When I joined a year ago, it just seemed like a giant time drain. I checked in once a week, just to see if anyone I knew was there. I wanted to see what clever thing they said, or photo they posted. It took a while, and then I became a believer. Videos like Jessica’s affirmations are a good example of how we can change the world with one post at a time.
I have come to realize that my fb page is my “station” and I can play anything I want on it. No CNN, no hand-wringing ain’t-it-a-shame media, no filtering out annoying talking heads just to have the good stuff I want flowing into my world. Nice! You may have noticed that Two Girls likes to post graphics and videos. And it’s all stuff we like! Once upon a time, I worked in radio. The best part of that gig was programming the music. So much fun! This is like that, but better.
Two Girls promotes information that feels good, books that are uplifting, teachers who can take us all to the next evolution of our souls, music that puts us in the vortex, and of course videos like sweet Jessica’s affirmations. I don’t know about you, but my heart just opened like a big flower when I watched her for the first time. There is a lot of good news out there, and it is our mission to share it because that’s the world we want to affirm: all is good, all is well, we are loved, and we are never alone.
For me, being tuned in, tapped in, and turned is a daily practice. When you consistently affirm the pleasant things you wish to experience: peace, harmony, joy; you begin to look for them to show up. When you look for them to show up and expect them to show up, they do. What you focus on shows up. What you expect to happen, happens.
If you start to “forget” for a minute and catch yourself afraid of what might happen, just pause, take a breath; and affirm a better outcome, allow a better outcome. It’s that easy and it’s that hard! If you are all wound up and needing to release a burst of energy, fear and anger are a shortcut that can work. It’s just better for your peace and well-being if you take a moment to connect to what is your real power. In case it matters. Love, C
My two cents: begin your day tuned in and watch the magic that is your world unfold in a whole new way.
