Welcome to The Affirmation Spot. I’m thinker, writer, and poet Ray Davis. The concept for this blog is simple. I want to create a place where you can come to think, gain exposure to new ideas, or take a fresh perspective on things.
I want to create a space where you can recharge your determination to have the life you seek and give you practical ideas for doing so.
Posts are drawn from any area of life (wherever my wandering mind roams) -inspirational stories, famous quotes, politics, sports, or health. Everything you read here has one thing in common – a firm bias towards ideas that empower you to live freely and happily as you pursue your dreams.
I recently founded a website – The Affirmation Spot.com. That website is destined to be the iTunes(TM) of positive thinking. TAS.com currently offers hundreds of mp3 affirmations for download in dozens of categories. The site officially launched on September 1, 2007.
I’ve been writing and recording affirmations, meditations, and other positive thinking tools for more than 15 years. I used affirmations to help me vault from my deathbed at 25 to a full life including a wonderful family, a business, a succesful career. I’ve seen first-hand the difference affirmations can make in attitude and performance in life.
The concept for the blog is to share, discuss, and inspire each other to achieve our full potential. Strange as it sounds we often forget and get sidetracked, sometimes for years. The Affirmation Spot is your daily nudge to stay focused and committed to your passion and, as Joseph Campbell famously said, to “follow your bliss.”
This quote from Marianne Williamson sums it up well.
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.
It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
