Amping Up Self Worth

Clients have heard my stories of cool things happening in my life within 12 hours of first practicing “I am worthy” affirmations in writing. It used to be one of my favorite ways to turn up the “self love” volume, partially because it was short and simple, but also because writing is a powerful manifestation technique for me.

Since then, I’ve also become a fan of Jack Canfield’s mirror exercise from his Success Principles. (I always thought mirror exercises were corny, but holy hannah – it works! Try for yourself!)

Here’s how it goes: before bed, look yourself in the mirror – eye to eye – and acknowledge yourself for all that you accomplished that day. Name everything you feel good about or did “right.” Toot your horn! Express pride in yourself!

Jack did this for 40 days and found all his negative self-talk totally vanished. (Yay!)

It basically boils down to improving the way you talk to yourself …

… throughout the day practice talking to yourself the way you would someone you love unconditionally.

(My litmus test is “Would I say this to an orphaned kitten or my imaginary daughter?”)

If you wouldn’t say it to someone you love, don’t say it to yourself.

Learning unconditional love and acceptance for yourself will land you solidly in the space of allowing all your best dreams to come true.

    Yeah, it’s transformative, isn’t it? Glad I could pass this along, Phillis and Paulette – and I’m glad you’re putting it to practice! That’s how this stuff works, right? We do what we know to do.

    It’s where the rubber hits the road! Thanks for exemplifying that so well. Namaste –

    WooHoo!!!!! That felt pretty darned good!!! I wonder how it will feel after 40 days? I guess that I will just have to do it and find out — now won’t I!

    Perfect PERFECT PERFECT!!!

    Love this — thank you so much — you have been such a great inspiration to me and my dreams — P.
