The “I Am…” Exercise
In order to stop our self-DEFECATING thoughts, like “I am not good enough/smart enough/pretty enough, etc.”, we need to be able to identify these thoughts when they surface and then, instantly REPLACE these negative statements with empowering positive, self-loving thoughts. Yes, basically, we are trying to re-wire our brains (*but don’t listen to me, do your OWN neuroscience homework!)
Therefore, the “I am…” exercise is about engineering your OWN personal positive affirmations cheat sheet. Powerful affirmations composed BY YOU, FOR YOU. Simply start this exercise by making a list of positive affirmations, preferably in your own words, starting with “I am…” Add statements you wish to be true as well, such as “I am good at math” to help create this reality in the future.
To get this most out of this exercise, make your own flash cards and read through your positive affirmations daily (*get creative and add healing music in the background!) Or strategically place positive affirmations around your house (“I am a LOVE-magnet” post-it on your laptop, etc.). And next time, you get into a funk, you can just pull this exercise out and REMIND yourself just how AWE-MAZING you really are (because we tend to forget this often!)
Just this morning, I found myself in a deep funk, so I wrote 8-typed pages of “I am…” statements, which I have shared below and you are welcome to apply to yourself as needed. *Actually, I have a theory that just reading through my “I am…”statements you are going to feel a little better. Please let me know if my little experiment works!
