As a practicing Druid, I find myself constantly learning new lessons and integrating them into daily life. I’ve transformed slowly from a mall-addicted materialist who placed all her value in what she owned into a true tree-hugging hippie completely devoid of commercialism. Needless to say I’ve learned a lot, but with the lessons and integration comes the inevitable tendency to slip into old patterns and habits. I don’t beat myself up over it, but I’ve found this daily affirmation helpful in my journey. I wrote it, and it reminds me of my responsibility to myself and to my chosen spiritual path.
I am a being of light, a daughter of the Earth and Sky,
One with the Universe.
I am a creature of intellect and biology.
I feel, but I also choose.
I am instinctive but also wise.
I can sense, but I also decide.
I have control over my actions with help of the Sacred Elements and Blessed Ancestors.
I continue to choose who I am
and will not lose the work I’ve done.
Daily affirmations are a great way to remind ourselves of what’s important to us, whether the focus is spiritual, family, or inner growth. They can be short with only a few words or long and poetic as long as they contain the essence of an idea.
People have been using affirmations for a very long time, and they can become a true motivating force in life. Even when we don’t really believe an affirmation, studies show that after about 30 days of repeating them, acceptance begins. The longer we say them, the more solid they grow in our lives. I think that’s important in today’s materialistic culture.
If there’s something in your life you’d like to see happen, try a daily affirmation that you create yourself. You’d be surprised at how powerful it can be.
Bright blessings in the peace of the grove.
