    If you’ve ever set out to start a consistent exercise routine, you know that the hardest part of the workout often isn’t physical; it’s your own mental barriers that can hold you back from reaching the success you’re capable of achieving.

    I’ve run one full marathon and four half marathons. I’ve gone on hikes that required me to climb thousands of feet of elevation. I’ve lifted weights I didn’t think I could lift, and I’ve stretched and moved my body in ways I didn’t think was possible.

    And while clearly, my body played an integral role in achieving these feats, I needed more than just my body to get me through the longest miles and toughest climbs; I needed that voice in my mind repeating over and over again, yes I can.

    On the flip side, I’ve also abandoned runs a mile or two in because my brain just couldn’t get into it, even when I felt rested and strong. And I can’t tell you how many times I’ve stopped in the middle of a set or skipped stretching, just because I didn’t feel like it.

    Know that I’m not judging myself for these moments, because they were all powerful learning experiences. I know that consistency always beats perfection, so it’s okay to be imperfect sometimes as long as I keep growing and showing up for myself as best as I can.

    Mindset is key in all that we do, including working out. If I tell myself that I can’t run one more mile, then that becomes my truth, whether or not my body was actually capable of going farther.

    I’ve found that reciting positive affirmations and empowering mantras to myself has been key in harnessing the power of my mindset when I work out. However, what I say to myself before my workout is different than what I say during my workout, and both are different from what I say after my workout.

    So I’ve divided the affirmations below into pre-workout, during workout, and post-workout affirmations. The pre-workout affirmations are designed to empower you to show up and choose to exercise from a place of self-love and self-respect. The post-workout affirmations are to help you affirm that you absolutely did enough, no matter what, and also to gently remind you to prioritize rest and recovery.

    You’ll notice that the affirmations that are designed for you to recite during your workout are a little shorter, and that’s because I’ve found that when I’m exercising, I tend be more motivated by short and punchy phrases than long sentences. They’re a lot easier to remember, too!

    I encourage you to use these positive workout affirmations from a place of total love for yourself, knowing you are strong, powerful, and more than enough.

    And be sure to stick around after the affirmations to discover seven powerful tips for overcoming “gymtimidation” and hitting the gym with confidence!

    A Quick Note

    Please know that the words above and the affirmations below are not meant to guilt you into working out, ESPECIALLY if your body is tired and needs rest and recovery time. Taking care of your body also means taking days off, getting enough sleep, and sometimes replacing your difficult workout with more gentle movement that feels good to you. Honor your body by listening to it and giving it the care it needs. If you’ve already carved out time to workout but know that you need to rest, I wholeheartedly recommend using the time to do a loving self-care practice that will realign the energy of your mind, body, and spirit.

    7 Ways To Boost Your Confidence At The Gym

    Going to the gym can be a vulnerable experience. You might look around and think everyone else knows exactly what they’re doing, while you’re not even sure where to start. Maybe you even worry that other gym-goers are judging you.

    This feeling of fear and anxiety about working out in front of others has been termed “gymtimidation.” If you struggle with this anxiety, you’re not alone. Many of the people you see confidently taking up space in the gym suffered from gymtimidation at one point, and maybe they still do, even if they don’t show it.

    There are several ways to overcome your fears and hit the gym with confidence, which we’ll explore below.

    1. Stick To A Routine

    Rather than going to the gym every once in a while, you’ll want to build trips to the gym into your daily routine. Stick to a schedule that works for you and visit the gym consistently in order to make exercise a healthy habit.

    1. Focus On Yourself

    Oftentimes, anxiety at the gym results from worries about whether other people are judging you. However, it’s important to remember that the people around you are usually 100% focused on their own workouts. Let the fear of judgment melt away and concentrate on your own goals.

    1. Get Advice

    If you don’t know how to perform a certain exercise or use a particular machine, ask a floor manager or a fitness trainer for advice. They’ll be able to give you quick guidance that will help you feel prepared and confident in your gym knowledge.

    1. Build Strength At Home 

    It can sometimes be easier to hit the gym when you’ve already learned the basics and built up strength. Try watching exercise tutorials at home and perfecting your form in the mirror. That way, you’ll feel more ready to hit the gym.

    1. Listen To Music

    According to Scientific American, “Music distracts people from pain and fatigue” and “elevates mood.” Creating an empowering workout playlist can help you feel confident and stay focused when exercising at the gym. You can either choose from the variety of pre-made workout playlists available online or customize your own.

    1. Bring A Friend

    Getting a workout buddy can make trips to the gym feel a lot less intimidating. This is because buddying up gives you a friendly face in an otherwise new and potentially intimidating environment. Your gym buddy can also help you stay accountable and crush your fitness goals.

    1. Find A Gym That Suits You

    Make sure the gym you pick is one you genuinely enjoy. Especially if you’re new to the gym scene, you’ll want to choose a place with a supportive culture and plenty of equipment for a range of experience levels.

    Joining a gym can be scary. However, these tips should help you build the confidence you need to meet your fitness goals.

    35 Empowering Affirmations For Self-Belief

    In this article, discover 35 empowering affirmations for self-belief and self-confidence. Use these affirmations to guide you in your journey and help you to embrace your undeniable and infinite worthiness.

    What Are Affirmations?

    Chances are, even if you’ve never practiced using positive affirmations, you’ve encountered them in some form of media – maybe when you were scrolling through your Instagram or Pinterest feeds or reading a book dedicated to self-development and personal growth.

    The word “affirmation” gets used frequently in popular media, so it’s important to take a moment to break it down and truly understand what it means.

    So then – what exactly is an affirmation?

    An affirmation is any type of declarative statement that you say or think and are essentially affirming to be true.

    So if you state, “This traffic is making me miserable,” or “This person is driving me crazy,” those are declarations that you’re affirming to be true, even if you don’t actually want to be miserable or crazy.

    Most of the time, though, when we talk about affirmations, we’re referring to positive affirmations.

    A positive affirmation is a positive affirming statement that’s designed to boost your self-belief and support your overall well-being: mind, body, and soul.

    Affirmations can be used proactively or reactively. You might have a list of positive affirmations that you repeat while you get ready in the morning to set the foundation for a good day.

    You might also use affirmations when you’re starting to feel negative and pessimistic in order to let go of your heavy energy and realign with what matters most to you.

    However you use them, affirmations can be a powerful tool in helping you to love, embrace, and accept yourself exactly as you are right now.

    Why Use Affirmations?

    You know how eating a sugary treat lights up the reward circuits in your brain? Well, using positive affirmations activates these circuits, too, which can ultimately help in lessening pain and keeping your cool when things go wrong.

    Using positive affirmations can also decrease stress. Stress has been known to increase one’s likelihood of depression and can result in digestive issues and sleep problems, among other long-term side effects.

    Furthermore, the use of affirmations can help to increase your problem-solving abilities when under pressure.

    Personally, I use empowering affirmations because they make me feel good. They’ve also been a way for me to take back my story and become the conscious creator of my own life.

    For years, my brain’s default setting was pointed toward negativity when it came to how I viewed myself. It wasn’t that I inherently disliked myself; it’s just that I tended to believe the worst rather than the best.

    Whenever I entered a room full of people, I assumed they would all immediately shun me. I told myself the story that I was never good enough. Never pretty enough. Never outgoing enough. Instead of focusing on the positive, my mind amplified the negative (and often believed things that weren’t even true).

    I’ve known about affirmations for years, but I’d never actually opened myself up to accepting them into my life until I began meditating regularly. Actually, the oldest email in my inbox is from October 15, 2014, and it’s called, “Body Affirmations.” It’s a list of 100 affirmations that I’d copied from an article I’d found online and emailed to myself.

    Do you know how many times in the following two or three years I opened up that email?

    Zero.

    Despite this, every time I went to clean out my inbox, I’d see that one email sitting there at the bottom and think, “Maybe I’ll want it one day.” I think I knew deep down that I wanted to carry these affirmations with me in my life, but my brain hadn’t quite caught up to my heart yet. And that’s okay. Everything unfolds exactly as it’s supposed to, and I’m grateful for my former self for holding onto these empowering words, even though she wasn’t quite ready for them yet.

    These days, I don’t just accept affirmations into my life; I embrace them wholeheartedly.

    As I mentioned above, they’ve allowed me to take back my story. I now create my life through the thoughts I consciously choose to magnify and give a voice to.

    And because affirmations have played such a positive and important role in my journey, I want to share them with as many people as I can reach so that you can also begin to own your story and create the life that feels good to you.

    Which Affirmations Should I Use?

    The key with affirmations is that you want to find the ones that resonate with you and that you can truly believe. If you don’t believe the affirmation, then you may end up feeling worse about yourself (because subconsciously, your inner bully is saying a big fat, “Yeah right!”). We don’t want that!

    If you want to believe an affirmation but find yourself feeling blocked from truly getting there, don’t stress. View your journey like you’re climbing a ladder, and with each rung, you’re steadily getting to that feel-good place you desire.

    For instance, if body love is your goal, you may not really believe yourself if you try to affirm, “I love everything about my body.” Instead, start with, “I am open to loving my body and seeing it for all of its beauty.”

    You might also be okay with saying, “My body is deserving of love.” You could also find specific areas of your body that you do really like, such as your smile. Or you can focus on all the ways your body shows up for you, even emphasizing something as seemingly simple as the fact that it keeps you alive.

    Find the words that allow you to really feel good, and keep your focus on the positive emotions associated with these empowering words as you climb up that ladder.

    With any of the affirmations below, if it doesn’t feel right, feel free to modify it so that it feels good for you. Focus on the ones that resonate with you the most. You will always know whether something is right for you by the way it feels.

    What Are Positive Affirmations?

    A positive affirmation is an affirming statement that’s designed to boost your self-belief and support your overall well-being: mind, body, and soul.

    A really good positive affirmation—the kind that lights up your heart and sparks something powerful deep inside of you—should uplift, encourage, and inspire your highest self.

    It should feel like a call to take back your story. To choose your own path. To stand tall in your undeniable worthiness and proclaim that you are everything you want to be.

    You are worthy. You are enough. You are powerful and strong and so much more than you’ve ever given yourself credit for.

    This isn’t about just reciting a few empty, feel-good words every once in a while.

    This is about finding the words that resonate with you deep within and then feeling the emotions of these words in every cell of your being.

    You’re not just saying you’re worthy; you are worthy. Worthiness is who you are at your very core. Worthiness created you, and worthiness is the foundation you’ve built yourself upon.

    You have been dripping in worthiness since the day you were born.

    Getting Started With Affirmation Cards

    Do you have a brand new deck of empowering affirmation cards that you’re antsy to crack open and start using as part of your daily routine?

    Whether or not you’ve used affirmation cards before, starting a new affirmation card routine is super easy, and there are tons of simple practices you can do each day to empower your mindset.

    But first: what exactly is an affirmation?

    An affirmation is, quite simply, a statement you make about yourself that you affirm to be true.

    An affirmation can actually be positive or negative, because we can also affirm negative statements about ourselves to be true, whether we do this consciously or not.

    For the purposes of this post, whenever I use the word affirmation, know that I’m talking about the positive kind. A positive affirmation is a present-tense affirming statement that’s designed to boost your self-belief and support your overall well-being: mind, body, and soul.

    And one of the best ways to use affirmations is through the use of affirmation cards.

    Affirmation cards come in all different shapes, sizes, and colors, and they often have anywhere between 40 to 60 cards in a deck.

    You can start out with just one affirmation card deck or alternate between decks every week or every month. If you don’t mind a little organized chaos, you can even mix decks together to incorporate them all into your daily routine.

    Below are seven powerful practices for using affirmation cards in your daily routine. And be sure to keep scrolling toward the bottom, because I link to my top picks for affirmation card decks that will uplift, empower, and inspire you to affirm your undeniable worthiness. (And bonus: they’re all absolutely gorgeous.)

    How To Use Affirmation Cards

    Morning Routine

    Morning is my favorite time to use affirmation cards because it always sets me up for a positive mindset as I start my day.

    One of the most popular ways to use affirmation cards is to pick one card from the deck at random as your chosen affirmation of the day.

    As you read the positive affirmation on the card, allow yourself to truly feel the uplifting words within every cell of your being. And furthermore, allow yourself to truly believe the words. Trust that this affirmation came to you today for a reason.

    Here are a few more things you can do with your chosen affirmation card:

    • Spend time reflecting. What do the words mean to you? How can you embody the feelings within the words throughout your day? How can this positive affirmation support you today? If you want, you can even spend some time journaling your thoughts about this affirmation.
    • Carry the card with you. Slide the card into your purse or bag, and set the intention to look at it and feel the positive words within you throughout the day. (You can even set phone reminders to help you remember.) If you work at a desk, you can also choose to set the affirmation next to your computer monitor so you can be reminded of it during your day.
    • Pull it back out before bed. Keep the affirmation out where it’s easy to access, and then in the evening, take one final look at it. Once again, let the positivity of the words radiate through you. If you want, you can spend some time reflecting on all the ways you embodied this affirmation during the day. Just remember: no judgment. If the card said, “I am calm, patient, and peaceful,” and you lost your cool at some point during the day, that’s okay! Have compassion for yourself. That doesn’t mean you’re not calm, patient, and peaceful. It just means you’re a human being who had a human experience; embrace this truth with love and understanding.

    Create Affirmation Art

    Many affirmation card decks are so beautiful, you could consider them art. So why not treat them like art and display them in a place where you can see them throughout the day?

    There are tons of ways you can do this. One of the easiest ways is to use a whiteboard with magnets or a bulletin board with pushpins, though I’d be careful to use the pins around the edges of the cards as opposed to sticking them through the cards. A bonus of using one of these boards is it’s easy to change the affirmations as often as you’d like.

    Another fun and creative way to hang your affirmation cards is with some twine (or some kind of rope/string) and clothespins. You can hang the twine/rope across a wall, a shelf, or even in rows across an old, empty picture frame, and use the clothespins to hold up your chosen affirmations. Again, this method makes it super easy to change out the cards whenever you feel like mixing it up.

    However you choose to display your art, make sure to place it somewhere accessible so you see it throughout the day. Set the intention to spend a couple minutes each day reading the positive affirmations and affirming the words into your being.

    Journal Your Affirmation(s)

    I mentioned this under the “Morning Routine” section, but there are tons of ways to take your journaling practice even further.

    While it’s common for many to journal in the morning, you can do these practices any time of day.

    • Pick 3 to 5 affirmation cards. Set them in front of you as you pull out your journal to write. Write each affirmation five times, making sure to truly feel the affirmation within as you write down the words. You can stop here, or you can take it one step further and reflect on what each affirmation means to you and/or how you’re going to embody this affirmation throughout your day.
    • Choose one affirmation card. Write all the ways in which you encompass the positive words on this card. For instance, let’s say you choose the affirmation, “I accept all of myself.” What are some examples in your life of times when you bravely accepted all of yourself? In what ways do you show yourself acceptance every day? You could list all the inner and outer parts of you and how you love and accept each and every part. You could also write about how you accept your past history. Write about all the ways in which you and this positive affirmation are aligned.
    • Reflect upon what your chosen affirmation means to you. Again, let’s use the example “I accept all of myself.” What does it mean to you to accept all of yourself? In what ways does accepting all of yourself equate to loving all of yourself? What practices can you incorporate in your life that would promote more self-acceptance? Why is it important to accept all of yourself?

    Depending on how much time you have, you could also combine the practices above to dig deeper into each affirmation.

    Gift Individual Cards To Loved Ones

    If, like me, giving gifts is your love language, then you’ll love this thoughtful and inexpensive way to show the people in your life your love and appreciation.

    Choose a card in your deck that reminds you of your chosen recipient. Most of the decks have somewhere between 40 – 60 cards in them, so you’ll have plenty of cards to choose from.

    It can also be fun to write a little note to go with the card, telling the recipient why you picked it for them.

    If the person’s a coworker, you could leave it on their desk for them to find in the morning.

    If they are a friend, you could secretly put it in their purse for them to discover.

    You can also give the recipient their gift in person and tell them why you chose this particular card for them.

    The Dessie Inspirational Cards I discuss in more detail below are perfect for this, as they already come with envelopes and stickers to give as gifts.

    Hide Cards To Find Later

    Gift giving isn’t just about giving to others; it’s also about giving to yourself from time to time.

    And you absolutely deserve to gift yourself some empowering affirmation cards, too.

    A fun way to do this is to hide cards in spots where you don’t look very often, such as a filing cabinet, a desk drawer, a bookshelf, or elsewhere. If you want, you can put the card in an envelope first with a loving handwritten note to yourself included.

    When you find the card later, open it up and be reminded of how worthy, incredible, and loved you are.

    Trade Cards With A Friend

    Do you have a close friend in your life who you don’t get to see nearly enough? This is a great practice to stay in touch while uplifting and supporting one another.

    You and your friend can both purchase one or more affirmation card decks. At an agreed upon time (i.e. once a week or once a month), choose an affirmation for that friend and write them a sweet note detailing why your friend embodies the beautiful words on the card.

    Then, slip it into the mail.

    In a couple days, both of you will be getting some positive, empowering words in your mailbox. You can slide this new card into your current deck(s) or hang it somewhere you’ll see until the next one comes in.

    While I love the idea of trading physical cards and getting mail, you can also snap a pic of the card and exchange texts with your friend on a weekly basis. Heart-shaped emojis completely encouraged!

    Pull A Card Before Bed

    Are you someone who spends a lot of time at night replaying events of the day or worrying about tomorrow? Embracing positive affirmations is a powerful way to shift your mindset at night.

    Before bed, pull a card and read the words to yourself, making sure to inhale all the positive vibes of the affirmation.

    If you want, you can spend some time journaling or reflecting upon the chosen affirmation.

    Then, when you go to bed, commit to repeating the affirmation to yourself when you close your eyes. If you catch your brain shifting back into worry-mode, simply pause, release your thoughts, and return to your chosen affirmation. Do this as much as you need until you fall asleep.

    What Is An Affirmation?

    An affirmation is a positive affirming statement that’s designed to boost your self-belief and support your overall well-being: mind, body, and soul.

    The standard format for reciting a positive affirmation is to begin with two simple yet powerful words:

    “I am.”

    For example, here are some commonly used “I am” affirmations:

    • I am worthy.
    • I am enough.
    • I am strong.
    • I am beautiful.
    • I am whole.
    • I am loved.

    While the standard “I am . . .” formula is immensely powerful, there are numerous creative ways to formulate an empowering affirmation.

    For instance, here are some other ways you might start an affirmation:

    • I can . . .
    • I accept . . .
    • I believe . . .
    • My (life, heart, body, worthiness) is . . .
    • I release . . .
    • I have . . .
    • All is . . .
    • Everything is . . .
    • I feel . . .

    The best affirmations are always the ones that resonate deeply within. Your heart may even flutter when you repeat the words aloud, or you might feel a slight tingle on your skin.

    Below, we’re going to cover everything you need to know regarding affirmations, including when to use them and how to make them work for you.

    Plus, you’ll find 100 positive affirmations for women that you can begin using today. To help you find the affirmations you need most in each moment, I divided these affirmations into categories, including affirmations for confidence, self-love, facing adversity, and more.

    When To Use Affirmations

    One of my favorite things about affirmations is that they can be used pretty much any time and any place. For instance, you could make it a habit to recite a few empowering affirmations every morning when you roll out of bed. You can recite them in the shower, during your morning commute, while you’re working out, as you’re standing in line at the grocery store . . . the possibilities are truly endless.

    So there really is no “right” place or time to use affirmations. Find a practice that works best for you.

    In the beginning, you might need to make it a habit to consciously remind yourself to use affirmations. If you find that you’re having a hard time remembering to use affirmations, you can set up phone reminders during the day so you don’t forget.

    Another great practice is to write empowering affirmations on post-it notes and stick them in places you’ll see throughout the day.

    I mentioned some of these above, but here’s a list of places and times when you might find it useful to use affirmations:

    • Upon waking up in the morning
    • In the shower
    • Getting ready for work
    • While driving/commuting
    • Working out
    • Taking your dog on a walk
    • Cooking dinner
    • In your daily journaling entry
    • Standing in line at the grocery store
    • Brushing your teeth
    • Settling down to sleep
    • Before (and during) a big event

    I firmly believe that when it comes to any self-care practice, whether it’s using affirmations, meditating, working out, or even allowing yourself an evening of rest, it’s when we feel like we don’t have time that we usually need these things the most.

    So if you feel like you’re too busy for affirmations, see if you can take just a few moments to step back. Breathe. Then, find the words that you need most in that moment and affirm them to yourself.

    How To Make Affirmations Work

    Affirmations aren’t difficult to use in your daily life, but there are a few key tips and tricks to making affirmations work so that you’re actually getting the most out of them. Here are some key best practices for using affirmations.

    Stay In The Present Tense

    The reason “I am” statements have become the cornerstone of most affirmation practices is because they’re firmly rooted in the present tense. When you say, “I am worthy,” you’re affirming that you are worthy right now, just as you are. It’s not, “I was worthy before I got that bad grade on that test.” And it’s also not, “I will finally be worthy when I get hired for my dream job.” You are worthy right now. Always.

    Feel The Positive Emotions

    An affirmation isn’t just about the words you’re reciting. The emotions behind the words are just as important. These positive emotions shouldn’t feel superficial. Rather, the confidence and strength you feel when you say an empowering affirmation should come from a deep, inner power. Whether you say the words silently or out loud, breathe them into your body and let them fill every cell of your being.

    Believe

    And to go with the bulletpoint above, an affirmation only truly works if you believe what you’re saying. The truth is, not all affirmations are going to resonate, and that’s okay. Don’t force yourself into reciting an affirmation because you feel like you’re “supposed” to. You’ll know whether the words are right for you by the way they feel.

    Use Modifications

    Now, there may be some affirmations you really do want to confidently recite, but something isn’t clicking.

    Maybe you realize that deep down, you don’t really believe the words. And that’s okay.

    Think of it like a ladder.

    Let’s use this affirmation as an example: “I am beautiful, ravishing, and radiant.”

    Maybe you try to say it, but the words don’t feel super comfortable for you. You notice doubts popping up in the back of your mind. Know that this is totally normal.

    In these situations, I like to modify the affirmations to work for me. One of my favorite modifiers is to use the phrase, “I am open to . . .” In this situation, you might say, “I am open to seeing myself as beautiful, ravishing, and radiant.

    Use your modification for a while until you feel ready to take the next step. Maybe the next rung on the ladder is, “I am starting to see how beautiful, ravishing, and radiant I truly am.

    You can take as many steps up the ladder as you need before you reach the original affirmation. This is your journey, so you get to set the pace.

    Here are some of my favorite modifiers for affirmations:

    • “I am open to . . .”
    • “I am willing to . . .”
    • “I am learning how . . .”
    • “I am becoming . . .”

    30 Affirmations For Tapping Into Your Intuition

    What Is Your Intuition?

    Your intuition is your deep inner knowing. It’s a hunch. A feeling. A whisper. It’s a voice that doesn’t speak in words but in a language that only you can understand.

    Your intuition is the oldest, deepest, wisest part of you.

    Your intuition is the sense of knowing you possess that seems to know the right answer before your mind can make rational sense of the situation. And even when your conscious mind has had the time to go through the pros/cons list and dissect the situation, your intuition may lead you somewhere else completely.

    It might say, “I know that this path is what feels logical, but this other path is what feels right.”

    Many people feel like their intuition doesn’t work or that they don’t have access to their deep inner knowing. But the truth is, everybody has access to their inner guidance system. But like a muscle, you have to work with it regularly in order to make it stronger.

    The most profound practices for tapping into your intuition are meditation and mindfulness. What blocks us from accessing our intuition more than anything else is being immersed in outer noise. When you’re constantly living externally, you have a hard time connecting to your heart’s wisdom.

    So to access your intuition, you have to step back from the noise. You have to get really quiet. You have to take full, deep breaths. And you have to be patient.

    When you’re strength training, you won’t see a profound difference in your muscle growth after only one workout. The same goes for your intuition. You have to keep coming back to silence, over and over again. You have to make space for your inner knowing to come forward, and you have to keep quieting your mind so your heart can speak.

    For more practices on how to tap into your intuition, plus guidance and tips on what your intuition should feel like and how your intuition relates to manifestation, you can read my full article on accessing your intuition here.

    Below, you’ll find 30 positive affirmations for connecting with your intuition. Find the affirmations that resonate most with you and repeat them daily. You can repeat these affirmations in meditation or recite them throughout your day.

    And remember to keep coming back to silence. Keep stepping back from the outer noise and returning to your inner self. And know that the greatest guidance you can ever receive doesn’t come from outside yourself; it’s within.

    The Power Of I AM

    When you begin using affirmations, one of the first things you’ll hear is to always speak in the present tense.

    When you say, “I am worthy,” you ground yourself in this present moment. It isn’t, “I will be worthy.” Or, “I hope to be worthy.”

    This type of statement is so small. Just three words. Four syllables. Nine letters.

    But in those three words, you state that you are worthy right now, just as you are. You don’t need to become worthy. You don’t need to change yourself to be worthy. And you absolutely don’t have to earn your worthiness.

    You get to own your inherent worthiness in this moment without needing to change a thing. And by owning your worthiness, you own your immense power to choose how you feel in any moment.

    And you also realize that you can have anything when you know that what you’re seeking is already inside you.

    It all begins with two tiny but monumentally powerful words:

    I AM.

    Using daily affirmations may feel uncomfortable at first, especially if you’re used to criticizing yourself in the privacy of your own mind. You’ll have to keep reminding yourself to repeat your empowering affirmations and feel into the positive vibrations of these powerful words.

    In time, though, these words will become woven into the very fabric of your being. They’ll be an inextricable part of who you are:

    Worthy. Abundant. Loved. Powerful. Whole. And always, always enough.

    Below, you’ll find tips for using and getting the most out of your I AM affirmations. Then, you’ll find 55 profound I AM affirmations for love, success, abundance, and more. These affirmations are designed to help you recognize your power in this present moment and walk forward in your journey knowing you already have what it takes to live the life you desire.

    You just have to own the incredible power that already exists inside of you.

    Tips For Using I AM Affirmations

    • Don’t just say the words; feel them. This is what makes an affirmation so powerful. If you can say an affirmation such as, “I am abundant,” and truly feel abundant inside every cell of your being, then you’re no longer looking for external sources to validate your worth. Instead, you cultivate what you’re looking for inside of you.
    • Don’t force it if it really doesn’t resonate. Forcing yourself to say an affirmation that actually makes you feel worse is counterproductive to the positive mindset you’re trying to cultivate. Instead, choose affirmations that genuinely feel good to you.
    • And on that note, you can also use what I call the Ladder Method. Let’s say you want to use the affirmation, “I am beautiful and healthy.” Maybe you have a hard time repeating this. You try to force it, but sometimes, this leaves you feeling worse than before. Instead, allow yourself to step back and find an affirmation that feels a little better to you. You might say, “I am open to discovering the ways that I am beautiful and healthy.” You can also say, “I am willing to love my body and see its inherent beauty.” See if you can incorporate these affirmations into your daily practice, slowly climbing the ladder until you get to that place where you can say, “I am beautiful and healthy.”
    • And finally, make affirmations a daily part of your routine. If it’s hard to remember at first, you can set phone notifications to go off throughout the day with powerful affirmations written on them. You can also print out affirmations or write them on post-it notes and stick them around your home and office. What I’ve found is that eventually, I don’t need these reminders anymore because the affirmation becomes so ingrained within me. After a while, it’ll become second nature to easily affirm your worthiness.

    30 Protection Affirmations To Guard Your Energy

    Below, discover 30 powerful protection affirmations to guard your energy and help you to remain calm, centered, and peaceful, no matter what’s happening in your external world.

    How To Protect Your Energy

    Protecting your energy is a profound act of self-care.

    To understand the importance of protecting your energy, it helps to understand the 12 Laws of the Universe. Many of these laws specifically focus on how energy plays a part in our daily lives.

    According to the Law of Vibration, everything and every being is in a constant state of vibration, always emitting frequencies and energies that often aren’t seen on the surface. So you emit your own energy, just like the device you’re reading this on also has its own energetic frequency.

    Once you understand how different types of energy feel within, you have the power to tune your energy to your desired vibrational frequency.

    So if you step back and realize you’re emitting the energy of stress or worry, you might take a deep breath and visualize how you’d like to feel. What kind of energy do you want to emit out into the world?

    If you want to replace stress with calm, you might try a breathing exercise, repeat some positive affirmations, walk outside to stand in the sunshine, and do other practices to help you tune your vibrational frequency to the calm and peaceful energy you desire.

    (Note that this doesn’t mean suppressing your stress or worry. You’re allowed to acknowledge these feelings – and especially to acknowledge the sources of these feelings. But ultimately, you’re the gatekeeper of your own energy. So you decide whether to sink deeper into this energy or – with love and compassion – begin choosing something new for yourself.)

    Understanding your own energy is especially important when it comes to your daily interactions with other people.

    According to the Law of Perpetual Transmutation of Energy (I know . . . try saying that five times fast), all energy in the universe is constantly fluctuating and changing from one form to another.

    Most of the time, we don’t see these changes because they’re happening at a cellular level.

    What’s important here is understanding that your vibrational frequency has the power to affect another’s, and another’s vibrational frequency can affect yours.

    So if you have an interaction with someone who’s emitting a lot of negative energy, their low energy can bring your own energy down. Alternatively, someone in a really cheery mood can lift your energy with a single positive interaction.

    Because energy can be so easily shifted and influenced, it’s important to have practices to protect your energy so you can consciously choose what you’ll allow in and what you’ll keep out.

    Because that’s, perhaps, what’s most important in all of this: knowing that you’re always in charge of your energy. Other people’s beliefs and emotions may affect you, but ultimately, you’re the one who gets to choose how you feel.

    Below, you’ll find 30 powerful protection affirmations to guard your energy and help you to remain calm, centered, and stable, no matter what’s happening in the world around you.

    And for more tips and helpful practices for taking care of your total well-being, you can find seven essential practices for protecting your energy here.

    Is Sunday The Beginning Or The End?

    Sundays are arguably the most peculiar day of the week.

    Some calendars will start a new week on Sunday, while on others, you’ll find it at the end.

    For religious reasons, Sunday has long been viewed as the most important day of the week and thus used to signify the start of a new seven-day period. But with the advent of industrialization and the five-day work week, Monday began to take its place as the ceremonial inaugurator of a brand new week.

    So is Sunday the beginning or the end? Is it the final puzzle piece of a seven-day week or the beginning of a fresh new 168 hours?

    I tend to think Sunday exists in the undefined space of the in-between.

    It’s not entirely a beginning or an end. On Sunday, we haven’t fully stepped into a new week, but we’re not really clinging to the prior week, either. We’re living in a space in-between what was and what’s coming: a space where nothing is completely certain but anything is possible.

    A space where we can start to shed the layers of our past selves so we can make space for something new to emerge.

    A space where we can replenish, recharge, and refill our own cups.

    A space where we don’t necessarily have to do. Where maybe, for a little while, we can simply be.

    Below, you’ll find 35 Sunday affirmations to help you embrace this space of the in-between: releasing the old, stepping into the new, and replenishing your spirit along the way.

    And to support your own personal journey, you can download your free printable Sunday affirmations and keep these empowering words with you no matter where you are on your path.

    Your Art Matters

    “My words matter.”

    I think, maybe more than anything else, these three words have inspired me to share myself and my words with the world, even when it felt like nobody was listening.

    As creatives, most of us go through periods of feeling unimportant. Does the work we do really matter? Is anyone listening?

    My response is always this: what does your heart tell you?

    Don’t look at the statistics. Don’t ask your logical mind to give you an answer.

    Do you feel deep inside like your art matters?

    Is your heart telling you to move forward?

    When I first started my website, I told myself that if only one person found meaning and value in the words I shared, that would be enough. I wrote for that one person.

    That person who I imagined was kind of like me – with a dream in their heart and a desire to follow it, even though they were more than a little terrified.

    If I had judged my value by my external statistics in the beginning, I probably would’ve quit after just a couple months of trying. This website didn’t receive much traffic when I first started out. I was also connecting with people on social media, particularly Instagram, but that was also very slow-moving. I didn’t know if anything I wrote actually made a difference, but my heart kept whispering, Keep going.

    So I did, despite the fact that I didn’t know if anyone was on the other side listening.

    And then, one day, that one person appeared in my email inbox.

    A woman who had been going through a really difficult time. She said she stayed up until two in the morning reading all of my chakra articles, and for the first time in a long time, she felt excited about something.

    Eventually, more emails came, and my traffic increased beyond what I had ever expected.

    But still, when I create, I think about that one person. And every time I send something out into the world, I think, “If this makes a difference in just one person’s life, that will be enough.”

    So I hope you know that your art matters. Your creations matter. What you put out into the world matters.

    And if you’re having a difficult time, don’t try to make everyone happy. Don’t try to be everything to everyone.

    Just create for that one person.

    Because there is someone out there who needs exactly what you have to offer.

    Below, you’ll find 35 positive affirmations for artists, creatives, makers, and visionaries. These affirmations are meant to uplift, inspire, and remind you that you have access to an infinite source of inspiration, innovation, and creativity. And they’re also here to remind you that you matter.

    All of you.

    Your art. Your creations. Your imagination. Your heart.

    It all matters.
