I Release. I Welcome. I’m Ready.

Take a deep breath and say this affirmation with me:

I release any and everything not aligned with my highest good. I welcome possibilities and opportunities for peace, growth and love of all kinds. I’m ready to receive.

Reminder: You are worthy of receiving what is good. Accept what is and continue to create pathways for abundance to enter your energy. As you navigate your daily thoughts and ideas, know when to release what is not serving you and act when opportunities arise. Continue to be the creator.

I Welcome Peace: A Poem About an Important Memory

I Welcome Peace

I connect with the inner workings of my mind. 
I connect with myself.
Who am I? 
What am I doing here? 
I sit and I ponder as I press the keys on my keyboard. 
Words flow from my mind to the ends of my fingertips. 
I’m free to express my thoughts, the energy of my consciousness. 
I create because I am the creator. 
I set the tone to what is happening to me. 
I am because I exist.
I exist because I am. 
I am one with myself.
I’ve come to know peace.


Poem shared in Mighty Poets with prompt above as well.

The Cycle Breaker’s Affirmation

If you’re like me and resonate with the experiences of a cycle breaker I want to extend love and light your way. It’s definitely not easy trying to change patterns you’ve been accustomed and conditioned to accepting since a young age. It’s also not easy feeling different and out of place in spaces where you expect to feel welcomed. I see you and I understand. We got this!

Let’s practice this affirmation together:

I am continuously healing generational and historical trauma. I prioritize my health and wellness and set a new example for future generations. I stand up for myself, do what’s best for me and check-in with myself daily. I am dedicated to my growth and will change the landscape of my conditioned thoughts, habits, and behaviors. I am in charge of my future and I craft my reality. I take on each challenge with grace and self-compassion and know how to set boundaries with myself and others. I live a fulfilling life and love all parts of who I am. I am ready to take on each day and continue to learn every step of the way. I attract love and peace because love and peace is all around me.

Let’s be the change we want to see.
