There’s nothing wrong with those, but they don’t always float everyone’s boat.
Florence Scovel-Shinn says it’s important that our mantras “click” for us.
So if traditional isn’t your style, you might like one of these 26 affirmations that Louise Hay didn’t write.
We call these “affirmations with attitude,” and they aren’t for everyone. (So if swear words offend, you might want to click away now …)
Thanks to the irreverent creators who brought us these politically incorrect affirmations:
Maya Angelou, Andy Dooley, Michele Woodward, Lady Gaga, Jay Z, Nike, Muhammad Ali, Charlie Sheen, Danielle LaPorte, thef**itlife.com, LMFAO, Mike Dooley, one or two from me, the US Marine Corps, Reverend Ike, and YOU. Let’s hear your favorite “not for all audiences” affirmations …
If your LOA practice doesn’t already include the superdaddy of all sacred mantras, it may be time to incorporate this one into your routine.
This two word mantra is capable of breaking even the most persistent evil spells – the ones where we feel powerless to escape the negative spiral down.
You can use it in any area of life, including breakups, lost jobs, financial ruin, etc.
It can be the catalyst for clearing the decks of negative energy and offering a clean slate to start anew.
You don’t have to be adept at using mantras in order to experience its effectiveness – even first time users can notice miraculous results their very first time.
Repeat use isn’t necessary – just one utterance can create magic.
Don’t be fooled by its simplicity – just because it’s short and easy to pronounce doesn’t mean it doesn’t pack a powerful punch when you’re swept up in fear, despair, or worse.
Are you ready?
Without further ado, here is the two word sacred mantra to use the next time you are under the influence of strong negativity:
Yep, you’ve got it! Can you feel the power of it already?
Or you can use its cousin:
Or another variation:
Screw it. (Click here for advanced support in implementing the four word version of this sacred mantra.)
Or you might prefer the all popular:
These two word sacred mantras can disperse negative spells in a heart beat.
If you want to make them extra powerful, you can incorporate specific mudras (hand gestures) to enhance their effect. “So what” works especially well with a flick or wave of your dominant hand. “Big deal” loves to be paired with a shoulder shrug. “Oh well” is especially lovely when completed with a strong exhale of air through the mouth.

Have fun implementing these sacred mantras next time you’re under fire in challenging circumstances that seem powerless to change.

(We all have them, right? On the bathroom mirror, the refrigerator, the office bulletin board, etc.?)
I used to be so self-conscious of them that I’d actually take them down before the Comcast rep showed up or the dishwasher installation guy arrived.
But last week when the carpet installers came over, I let my affirmations fly loud and proud.
Because after all, these words have brought magic into my life. They’ve delivered so many good things that I can’t even pretend to be embarrassed about using them any more.
If you were standing in my office now, here’s what you’d see on multicolored sticky notes:
That’s just a sampling of “spells” from my office board that have brought enormous amounts of deliciousness to real life.
But it isn’t just the written words that work magic in my world. It’s the spoken ones, too … the ones I’ve repeated myself, and the ones others have spoken to me.
Like when someone tells me I’ve got a crazy idea that will never work, my standby response is, “Oh yeah? Watch me.”
Or when my inner gremlin tells me that’ll never work, I say, “Hey, stranger things have happened!”
Or when coach Jeanna Gabellini told me that even a sucky coach could get ten clients, those words were a LIFELINE to me when I doubted my own ability to succeed.
The words we speak and think and repeat over and over are literally creating the world around us.
What are the words you’re using to create your world?

“As you speak, so shall it be.”
That’s the promise that inspires many a deliberate creator to speak something big into being.
But what happens when the words we choose feel like a lie?
Much as we might want certain things to be true, thinking or speaking them sometimes makes us feel worse because of our contradicting reality:
Do we just power through, ignoring that inner critic that says “yeah, right“? Or do we dial it back to something more believable that our subconscious won’t reject?
I don’t think there’s a right or wrong answer that applies to everyone for every situation. Sometimes we can boldly sidestep contradictory evidence and continue reinforcing the big reality we want to create …
Other times it feels better to soften the mantra and baby step our way into a dream come true manifestation.
Teal Scott says,
The better your affirmations feel to you, the more effective they are.
If the statement you come up with feels like you are simply arguing with yourself and invalidating how you feel, it is not the right affirmation to use.
I’ve personally found it very effective to use big affirmations even when they were far, far from “true.” If I can stick with the big thought, eventually Universe has to prove me right – no matter how ridiculous or unlikely it is. And the more I repeat it, the less foreign it feels. It’s been very powerful in creating new outcomes.
Teal says that while the ‘fake it till you make it’ kind of pretending is sometimes degraded as being dishonest, “there is a vast element of universal truth in this saying.” Because everything begins with a thought, and the Universe doesn’t distinguish between what’s pretend and real.
And yet, there are times when the big thought feels like too big a leap to make. That’s when it might be preferable to bite off something we can better chew. On those occasions the path of least resistance might be to soften big thoughts with a preface like “I am looking forward to …” or “I am in process of …”
However we do it, what matters most is that we consciously engage our power of focus to create what we want.
