Declarations and Affirmations
I have found it very useful in my journey of self healing to have a declaration that I would read to myself one to three times a day. I usually write out a fresh declaration upon each new moon.
Affirmations are good as well for solidifying in your mind what your goals, intentions and aspirations are. Of course simply thinking and affirming these things isn't just going to make them magically manifest. There are certain requirements that need to be met. However affirming them to yourself, and having the care, willingness and openness to take appropriate action towards their manifestation is a recipe for success.
I am at a stage now where I have 3 documents (morning, afternoon, and night). The declaration at the beginning of each document is the same, however the affirmations beneath are chosen from a master list that I have to best suit that particular time of day. It is also more powerful if you speak your words aloud rather than just reading in you're head.
If this sounds good to you then I recommend writing your own declaration and affirmations, as that will be the most powerful. However in order to provide you with some inspiration, below I have pasted the declaration that I wrote for myself at the beginning of June's moon, along with my master list of many of my affirmations. This is just what I felt I needed to do personally last month, It changes.
The thing I've found with discipline is that it is important and useful at the beginning of the journey of getting your shit together and taming the ego, but as you progress and evolve you can afford to loosen up a bit more, it's a balancing act. And a 'If at first you don't succeed, dust yourself off and try again' thing.
New Moon Declaration 05.06.
Life is truly a deeply precious and beautiful gift. It is sacred, and deserves my full respect and attention. I forgive myself for wasting and squandering my life and resources to some extent, as I, like so many others have been weak and misguided.
However now I really am getting it right, I make the decision to honor myself and God through concerted action and living. Now is a time to heal, tidy and study, so that I can move on through into the world with a beautiful energy and love, integrate, share and prosper with my cosmic family.
I acknowledge that there is real danger here, and real, untoward forces that want to tow me down the ego's path of indulgence and distraction. I remember what this feels like, and with strong resolve, affirm that I am doing, creating and nurturing a truly beautiful existence that is aligned with divine, angelic love, beauty, strength and courage. On through now, to bigger and brighter things x
Disciplines to follow till next moon:
To read this declaration 3 times a day, morning, 2.20pm, and evening 9.30pm
