I was in 4th grade when I heard and internalized my first affirmation- that I still find myself singing to this day.

I’m alive, awake, alert, enthusiastic! I’m alive, awake, alert, enthusiastic. I’m alive, awake, alert,

I’m alert, awake, alive,

I’m alive, awake, alert, enthusiastic!”

It was from a song that my friends in my Girl Scout troop were preparing for for their upcoming school concert. I recall them having SO Much Fun when they sang it, and soon our entire troop was singing it at the top of our lungs during a weekend camping trip. I have no clue how the rest of the song goes, but I sure do remember how I felt when I first heard it.

‘Hey! That’s Me! That’s how I feel every day!’.

Fast foreword about four years- 1998 was when I really started learning about affirmations when I started getting really involved with crewing Anthony Robbins events. A woman named Loren Slocum was the crew director- and probably one of the best teachers in my ongoing life. At every event I crewed, which was somewhere around 20 over 10 years, we always did a workshop on affirmations.

‘I’m Healthy, Wealthy, Sexy & Strong’ is always a favorite of mine while I’m out walking my dog. I find myself interchanging the words to be more fitting for my day- and it always adds a great pep to my step.

Another one that really rang true to me I heard in 2004, it’s also sung as a song and repeated:

‘Every single cell in my body is healthy, every single cell in my body is good’

‘I’m so glad every single cell in my body is healthy and good’.

An affirmation can be described as a statement of truth that you make firm with enthusiastic repetition.

Back in 1998 I thought affirmations were about what I wanted in life. I wanted to be healthy, wealthy, sexy & strong- so I repeated it over & over until the words flew off my tongue like the ABC’s.

Now, I realize that affirmations are creating what I want in life, my future. So when I repeat my new affirmations, I am actually putting it out there into the universe to manifest. With the Law of Growth, persistence, trust and belief that all of these things are connected, I know that I am giving focus to my new reality and giving oxygen to my soul.

By applying the knowledge that I’m learning and keeping my promises, I know that my affirmations are becoming my reflections, and in another 20 years, I will be able to reflect on the past 40 years of my life’s affirmations and know that I am where I am because of my conscious realization of the Law of Attraction and intention to bring it into materialization of my new realities.
