Unique, Worthy Person Affirmation – The Affirmation Spot for Wednesday July 27, 2011

Today’s affirmation:

I am a unique and worthy person. I require no more justification than that to be who I am.

Being Who You Are

Everyone has an opinion on who you should be. Your mother, your co-workers, your spouse, the church, the government, your friends; they all are constantly trying to mold you into their vision of who they think you should be. Obviously, there are times when it is wise to listen to sound advice.

By and large, however, defining who you are is your right and your responsibility. Giving up that right to other people’s expectations is disempowering and leads to unhappiness.

Starting today take back your right to be who you are. You are fully capable and fully prepared to create your own vision of you. It is your “divine right” as a human being to make those decisions for yourself.

The opinions will still come – fast and furious – but you’ll be too busy enjoying the real you to care.

Follow your bliss! Achieve your bliss! Become your bliss!

Whatever I Need Always Comes My Way – The Affirmation Spot for Wednesday July 13, 2011

Today’s Affirmation:

“Whatever I need comes my way.” (hear this affirmation)


During a very difficult part of my life, I used to say this one about 100 times a day. I also used to listen to it when I went to bed at night. I found this thought very effective at responding to the negative thoughts that ruled my life at that time.

It’s a simple affirmation, but contained in it is world of faith, hope, and awareness.

  • Faith: The affirmation communicates faith in its implicit understanding that everything happens for a reason. I know that assertion has almost become trite conventional wisdom. Nonetheless, even science acknowledges discernible patterns in the universe. The Earth does not suddenly begin orbiting the Moon. The ocean tides do not flow in reverse. There is a certain perfection to things. Are our lives an exception? Hardly. When you look back at your life you see that so many things that did not seem to make sense in a moment made perfect sense given perspective. There seems to be a kind of plan to things. You can have faith that the new things coming into your life will also fit into that plan and provide you new opportunities to grow and expand.
  • Hope: The affirmation communicates hope in that it reminds you that there is a flow to things. You are not stuck where we are. New things are coming to you all the time. The universe and your life are in motion constantly. When you get stressed or depressed it is often because you create solidity to a momentary setback. It feels permanent, but it is not. Every day brings new possibilities. “Whatever” is an open book and reminds you that anything is possible.
  • Awareness: The affirmation communicates awareness. Notice it says “whatever I need” not “whatever I want”. The concept here is that there is a certain intelligence or wisdom in the events, people, and things that come your way in life. There are no accidents. Because that is so, you can be confident that you have the wherewithal to handle these things. You really can take lemons and make lemonade. You can handle setbacks and move forward to new levels of achievement.

“Haters”

I was thinking yesterday about a term I hear proliferating these days. As is usually the case, it started with young people and now seems to be spreading to everyone. I hear it on TV, see it on social networks, and recently have heard it more and more in my daily life. The word is “hater”.

We often forget the power of words to shape our lives and our paradigms of the world. Subconsciously, we are all well-schooled in the real meaning of the word hate. When we use hate in this voguish, casual manner, it still carries that meaning.

The subconscious message is that if you disagree with me, you’re a hater. How are we conditioned in our society to deal with people who hate us? Well, of course, we hate them back. When I transform disagreement or even a matter of taste or choice into hate, I am creating a more divisive tone to my world. Remember that much of what you create in your mind, you see in your world. If I create this idea that I live in a world of “haters”, that is what I am going to experience. Living in that world separates me from other people and creates a “me vs. them” mentality.

You can see this mindset proliferating in the “reality TV” genre now so prevalent in our media culture. Ego-driven, finger-pointing, body bumping arguments with your “haters” may make good TV, but they create a paradigm that is awful for society. When people see this behavior repeatedly, they begin to see it as the norm. Our herd instinct causes us to begin modeling it in our lives, unless we are very conscious. This is an incredibly unproductive, unhealthy mindset, and comes with a lot of dis-ease and dysfunction. Words do have power.

Look, I’m a writer and I appreciate and support the free use of language and even trendy language to communicate. I just think we need to be careful of the images we create of the world with our words. They have real impact in shaping who we are and how we see the world.

What do you think?

Have a beautiful day. Stay inspired!

Break Through – A Poem – The Affirmation Spot for Sunday January 23, 2011

I began this poem in 1993 and finished it in 1997. It describes a transformation from disappointment and heartache to selfhood. I hope you enjoy. Would love to read your comments.

Stay inspired!

“BREAK-THROUGH”

Free now of all reveling
in unimportant things.
Fraught with expectations
full of broken dreams.

Moving right ahead now
with visions grandiose.
Summoning the courage
to conquer all my ghosts.

Knowing in the fullness
of the days that are to come;
my obstacles will fall away
and my fears shall be undone.

Mindful in this moment;
connected to my fate.
My sense of separate self
begins to dissipate.

Dissolving now completely
into the cosmic whole.
All enters my awareness
I reach my final goal.

Knowing for the first time
who I truly am.
I am Universal Mind
and it is but a man.

Coming Out of the Dark – The Affirmation Spot for Monday November 15, 2010

Thought for today:

“We can easily forgive a child for being afraid of the dark; the real tragedy of life is when men are afraid of the light.”
~ Plato

Coming out of the dark….what a powerful, powerful metaphor!

It’s been 19 years since Gloria Estefan released “Coming Out of the Dark” – a powerful anthem with an even more powerful metaphor of walking from darkness to light. Many of you probably remember that Gloria was critically injured in a March 1990 bus accident, while on tour. Her 1991 album “Into the Light” and this single represented her return after a 10-month long recovery that included the placement of two titanium plates to support her spinal column and extensive physical therapy.

In January 1991, she debuted this song at The American Music Awards where she received a standing ovation both for the song and for her courageous comeback.

Ironically, 1990 was also the moment of truth in my life. Beginning in March of that year I spent two stints in the hospital totalling almost 11 weeks. I was admitted unable to eat, drink, or stand, and down to 96 pounds. I was writhing in pain and ready to leave this world. Eventually, I was diagnosed with Addison’s Disease and was finally released from the hospital in late May. My life was in a shambles financially, emotionally, and physically.

I remember hearing this song for the first time and thinking it was speaking directly to what I was going through and, I assume, was Gloria was going through in her life. This song played a key role in my own comeback. It inspired and provided a methaphor for the new life I was creating.

I hope this amazing song brings inspiration and courage to you this Monday, as it has for me and millions of others for nearly two decades. Wherever you are today in your life there is a light can transform everything and you need only look within to find it.

Stay inspired!

Ray
