Hello all! I thought I’d share something pretty personal with you this week and if you enjoy it, I’d make it a regular thing. I’ve talked a lot about my beliefs in the power of thought and my love of affirmations. What you’ll find below is my weekly affirmation process. It works for me, but is certainly not the only way to utilize these cards. That’s what’s so great about them! You can use them however you see fit. So let’s take a look!
I started out with just one set of affirmation cards, (I Can Do It) but after a killer sale at Hay House, I bought 3 more sets! Yup…I went a little wild. 🙂
The first two sets are similar in that they are written by Louise Hay and they cover a lot of ground. Anything you can think of. There is a message on each side that goes hand and hand. The artwork is different, but both sets are beautiful and the messages are similar. (I’m partial to the Wisdom cards because I prefer the art, but again…very similar) The Money Attraction cards are from the Hicks. You may know them from The Secret. These cards have a short affirmation on the front with artwork and then a longer, in depth description on the back. They are lovely. Lastly, the Messages from your spirit animal cards are from Steven D. Farmer and they (again) have a short description on the front, but the set comes with a tiny book that fits in the box that gives a lot more detail about each card. These are less affirmation and more…something to think about when it comes to the way you handle your business…and how you may want to be treated or viewed by those around you.
So I lay out the decks, and take them one by one into my hands. I close my eyes and shuffle them or play with them and when I like the feel of the one…or if one happens to jump out onto my lap…That’s my card.
Here are the ones I got this week.
Closer look. As you can see, the 2 on the right have a similar message which just so happens to be an issue I struggle with.
Lastly, I stick them to the wall behind my desk so that I can see them every day. They serve as a gentle reminder to direct energy and thought towards these things all week.
That’s the process I follow and it works for me. If I feel like I haven’t quite gotten the message, I’ll keep one out for more than a week and there have been times when the same card will pop up 2 weeks in a row…I figure the Universe knows I didn’t quite get it so it’s giving me another go…but for the most part I get new cards each week.
I also have my daily calendar as you can see in that last picture (Louise Hay). And I have my personal daily affirmations that I keep close to my heart.
I believe that by using affirmations in all of these ways, I am surrounding myself with positivity and light. It’s not something I view as a cure all…it’s something I find fun and uplifting and it fits into my lifestyle effortlessly.
Are you a lover of affirmations? Do you use them in your day to day life? Care to share your process? I’d love to hear your thoughts below!
Happy Monday and here’s to an awesome week!
