The Spine of an Affirmation

YOFA meditation cd Let's say the words are the bones.  Distinct structural supports.  They give the affirmation its shape.  They hold it up.

And then, just like the spine, there is the Intelligence that flows through the words.  Your consciousness glides through the hollow space within the words and ignites their meaning.  You fulfill the words with your experience.

Today, I am inviting you to bring your words into alignment with your inner truth so that your affirmations take hold.  To affirm means to make firm.  The bones offer that solidity.  So do the words. 

Your careful choice of words leads to mastery.  It leads to alignment.

When you choose the words for your affirmations with precision (here, "precision" means they feel just right), your whole system clicks into alignment and you resonate with the words.    Their vibration hums in your aura.  You become so true to yourself that your talents and abilities jump a notch.  It is a brilliantly worthwhile pursuit.

Try This:
When you speak your affirmations (or when you listen to the
I Am Love recordings) experience the relationship between the words and the consciousness (your consciousness) that flows through them.  Bring this delicate relationship into your awareness.  Feel the fluctuation as you gently move into and out of alignment with the words. 

YOFA meditation baby Don't be concerned about the out-of-alignment moments.  Here we are focused on cultivating sensitivity to the alignment process.  We are simply honing our skills at noticing when our "word spine" is in or out of alignment.

As you spend more and more time nurturing your awareness of the relationship between the "word-spine" of your affirmations and the consciousness that flows through them, you nourish your spirit.  Pretty soon, you will have no question about the creative power of your words.
