I Am…

Thoughts. Beliefs. Attitude. Reality.

I am a deep thinker, and if you know me, you will know that I am always thinking about something; and I will admit that a lot of times, I do overthink. But through my road of healing and learning who Breanna is, I realized that if I wasn’t careful, my thoughts quickly became my beliefs, my beliefs became my attitude, and my attitude became my reality. This concept became even more personal when I realized this was true about how I viewed myself. To this day, I have to continually battle with what I think and say to myself because it’s easier to give up and accept defeat. It’s easier to beat myself up than to praise myself.

I have to remind myself of who and what I am. It may sound silly because you would think that with all these talks about self-love, being positive, and years after my deep depression, I should be good by now. Naw, that’s not how it works. The stress of life will never stop. I will always have new challenges to overcome. It’s called growth. I see significant improvements within myself, and there are areas where I still struggle to improve. In other words, I’m not perfect and never will be perfect. I fall often. When I’m not careful and don’t work on my Self Love, I plunge deeper into the hole. So, how do I pick myself up? What do I do to keep myself from falling? Like I said earlier, my thoughts quickly became my beliefs, my beliefs became my attitude, and my attitude became my reality, so I had to change my way of thinking. I had to change my belief system.

I Am.

The words that follow the statement, “I Am” is a spell that we put on ourselves. Our mind, body, and spirit takes what we say and makes it a reality. It’s a manifestation. What I say I am is being manifested and brought to me. For example, I say or think, “I am ugly,” that thought is now my belief, it becomes my attitude, and it is reality. I will only see myself as an ugly person, not only in my appearance but in every aspect of my life. Taking this a step further, I am not the only one who views me as ugly; everyone around me will, too, because my actions reflect my belief.

What I Say and Think.

I’ve learned that saying what I want to be, even when I don’t believe it or it’s not true at the moment, sparks something within me. Over time, I begin to move differently and act as if I am that, I start to operate towards that goal, and I become aware of opportunities that help me toward that goal. I now believe and see myself as what I manifested.

Meditation.

I also meditate. I continually think about my positive manifestations by saying the “I Am” statements, which are affirmations. I recently begin to take small breaks at work where I meditate on my affirmations, especially when I am feeling out of it and stress out. You’ll be surprised by what 30 seconds can do for you. I have space in my home where I have designated for meditation, and I even do it when I go hiking. The goal is to focus on what I am and what I want to become.

I love the way Mama Earth Medicine, on YouTube, explains it. I started doing this during my depression before watching this video, but she gave me other ways of seeing it.

Your Turn!

So, what do you want to become? Who and what are you at this moment? Claim it! Please share your “I Am” statements here with me and other readers. Let’s manifest together!

Love,
Bree
