Alignment Spell: I Love That About Me

I LOVE that about me!Ready for another simple alignment technique?

This is one of my personal favorites.

It came to me spontaneously one day after I snorted with laughter on a date with a hot guy.

At first I was embarrassed – I’d never laughed so hard that I snorted before!

How unbecoming!

But I’d been practicing enough self love over the previous months that the shame quickly transformed to delight – “I snort when I laugh now? How about that. I snort. I LOVE that about me!”

And thus was born my favorite new affirmation: I LOVE that about me!

I found I could say anytime I felt some version of embarrassment, shame or self-judgment and it would instantly transform back to love.

  • I got someone’s name wrong? Again?? I love that about me!
  • I spaced paying a bill on time? I love that about me!
  • I take forever deciding which salad dressing to buy? You guessed it … I love that about me!

Perhaps the reason this little sentence works so well is because it returns us to our truth – that we are complete, whole and perfect just as we are.

Which sometimes we’re really good at forgetting.  😉

You probably have to try it out yourself to realize how powerful this one is.

Use this simple alignment spell the next time you feel ashamed, guilty, embarrassed, or anything less than proud of yourself. It’ll snap you back to your highest truth in a flash.

I’ve been sharing this one for years and have had lots of feedback that it works just as well for others as it does for me. And you know how important self-love is for your manifesting success, right?

It makes all the difference in the world.

    I love this idea, this “alignment spell” technique. I always try to remember to love myself even when it’s something I don’t like or a mistake I have made – but I love this very simple way of just saying “I love that about me”. I can hear myself self saying it in this very uplifted perky little voice. Thanks for this!

  • Anna says:

    A Beauty of a gem that I have been using since I first heard you speak of it on a call – and I love it!
    It’s a favorite, it’s effective, and it *does* get other people’s attention – in a positive way, as if all they needed was to be reminded how perfect my imperfections are.
    And it all starts with our selves.
    I go off on tangents when I’m talking – I love that about me!
    The subjects I broach are bizarre & uncommon – I am so ADORABLE!
    You’re Brilliant, Audrey – I’m glad you shared that one!

    You have inspired so many and myself included with this little phrase of self-love. I have used this since I first heard you mention it and it was like butter on sweet corn, that melts and surrounds the ear like it belonged there in the first place. For me, this phrase helped me go from laughing at myself (with still a bit of judgment attached) to accepting myself with love. It’s been a perfect “pivoter” for me in embracing and loving who I am when I slip into old habits of blame, judgment, guilt, etc. You, my friend, have taught me a lot about the art of self-love and I am elated that I picked it up quickly! I love that about me! hee hee And I sometimes snort when I laugh, too! Woo Hoo! Love you, Jeannette!

    In our imperfectness lies our perfectness?
    I think so.

  • MissyB says:

    I snort too – and now I love that about me 🙂
    Simple message in this post – love it.

  • Berta, my love, you are brilliant!!! mwah!!

  • Berta says:

    Last week I was so out of sorts with life, and I gave myself permission to go to the dark side with my vibe–full out, too. (Not long ago you blogged about doing angry, frustrated, etc. up right and being fully there.) I also let myself slowly come back to the bright side. Later I wondered, “When will I stop going to the dark side?” Read: guilt. Then I had the epiphany, “DA, never. I’m human.”
    So now I’m combining the two lessons from this and the previous blog. “Sometimes I go to the dark place that I really don’t like, but I love that about me! And then I come back into the luminous place I love to be. And man, I love that about me!”

  • Brenda says:

    Ahhhh, Audrey! I love that one, too: “I am SO adorable!” Thanks for adding that one for a little variation.

  • NICE, Audrey!!
    Thanks for posting!

  • audrey says:

    One of my longtime favorites! That, and “I am so adorable.”

  • Good point, Ron – I hadn’t consciously realized how those lists have the potential to inspire that energy.
    Serena, I sense some RELIEF coming up for you soon! lol
    Barbara, thanks for another great example of how to use it in real life. Beautiful!

  • BarbaraM says:

    I am using this affirmation with pride in success. I learned it from you Jeannette! Thank you! It breaks negative mind chatter with me too.
    I noticed that I am very protective towards myself, when someone accuses me of something which I feel is not true and I fight back. First I was beating my self up because of this. Now I just say: “I love that about me.” End. Fin. Finito. 🙂

  • Serena says:

    Oooh then I’ve got a ton of stuff I’d better start LOVING about me hehe! Yes we always do forget………

  • Sophie says:

    That’s the one I was talking about in the forums! Great minds…. 🙂

  • Hi,
    That’s so great. Its important to give ourselves a break!
    For this very reason I gave up to do lists and goals. It made me mad at myself which ultimately makes no sense. Now I simply believe that whatever I do, its the right thing at the right time.
    But its always nice to be reminded, as you said, we often forget.

  • Indeed, I loved your reminder, Sophie! 🙂
    And Brenda, it IS transformational, isn’t it?! At least, that’s how I feel it. Thanks for sharing your experience of it! Love that!

  • Brenda says:

    Um…that “Anonymous” post above is mine. I forgot to fill in my name and email. I LOVE that about me!

  • Anonymous says:

    I learned that line from you, Jeannette, in our very first conversation, and it not only transformed the way I was seeing myself at the time, but when I cheerfully used it within earshot of my guy one time (for my benefit, not his), not only did it instantly snap me out of negative self-judgement, I noticed that he seriously mellowed from that point on when I wasn’t “ready to go” the precise moment that HE was.
    “Even though I try to be timely, sometimes…I’M NOT – I love that about me!!!!” 🙂
    Now he turns on the TV and chills until I’M ready…resistance is futile. 🙂
    It takes me a long time to decide what colour of spa socks to wear when I apply a certain scent of body butter on my feet! lol – I LOVE that about me!
    I’m really appreciating this blog post today, Jeannette. I’ve kinda forgotten the power of this simple, yet loving, phrase. I’ll be using it today!

  • You are so sweet!! 🙂

  • Stephen says:

    yeah, I love that about you, too.
