Day 1 ~A 40-Day Affair with Your Self~
Are you ready to passionately have an affair with your Self and fall in love? I hope your answer is YES! This proclamation opens your consciousness to expand so you can create and allow miracles to show up in your life.
Today we begin a journey of transformation. You may be experiencing many different feelings; maybe curiosity, excitement, nervousness, or you may be experiencing some resistance. All of your feelings are natural and important to your life experiences. I encourage you throughout the journey, to be with your feelings, honor them, and try not to label them as good or bad. Especially the difficult ones and instead of denying them, hear your Soul whispering in your ear “Feel it to heal it”. Remember your intention, self-love, and as you embark on this journey of transformation you will awaken to that sacred place within, where you will lovingly embrace all your feelings with acceptance and compassion.
Your first step is making the choice to spend quality, sacred time with yourself. The intention during this time is to get to know your Self, to discover your truth, your dreams, and your desires and to fall in love with all of who you are. This journey has the pieces to your puzzle to to guide you in using this scared time to create this outcome.
So stop for a moment and ask yourself, what time of the day can I commit to me so I can slip away to my sacred space? Where is that sacred space?
I remember when I first started devoting this time to myself. The kids were young. Joelle was six and Justin was three. I made a choice to get up before the kids started their day and I took my journal and a hot cup of coffee into the sun room and watched the sunrise. This time spent with myself and my higher guidance allowed me to get in touch with my feelings, to listen to my inner truth and to hear the wiser voice of my Soul. If for some reason I didn’t get up, then my sacred time was found in the shower because it was the only place I had for myself.
Your sacred space could be here, right now in front of your computer, or it may be in your bedroom and you might want to spend some time in your car sitting by the ocean. Wherever you choose, it has to feel right for you. Most importantly it’s the love you give yourself by spending time with you.
During the next 40 days you can use this sacred time to work with the spiritual intention and tools provided in each email. This will include:
*Messages and teachings about the daily intention
*The “I Love Me” meditation practice
*The “I AM” Magnificence Affirmation
*Messages from the Soul
*Self Reflection Question
*Daily image of the caterpillar transforming into the butterfly
*A nighttime “I Love Me” meditation
All of these pieces are shared with the intention to empower you to become one with self-love and owning your true magnificence.
So are you ready to begin? Choose your sacred space with no computers on or possibilities of the phone ringing or being disturbed. Bring a journal or paper to write on.
Close your eyes and call in the divine white light, the highest vibration of light. If you choose you can ask your angels, guides, loved ones in spirit to surround you in a beautiful circle of light, love, healing and protection. Ask your Souls light and energy to merge with you in mind, body and spirit. Then take a moment and just breathe and receive the love and light around you and within you.
“I Love Me” Meditation
You will do this meditation everyday for 40 days. It’s a simple, quick and powerful practice that will create miracles within you and in every aspect of your life: your relationships, career, finances, health and well being. It should take you no more than 4 minutes. You are so worth 4 minutes to love yourself and to transform your life to an experience, better than you could ever imagine.
*Place your hands on your heart and close your eyes.
*Repeat to yourself out loud or in the silence of your thoughts, “I love me” 10 times (please don’t allow yourself to be distracted by the counting just say it for as long as it feels right). Play with imagining and feeling the “I” as your Soul/God Self expanded with infinite, magnificent, unconditional love. Then as you say, “love me” breathe one with it, own it, and allow its magnificence to fill you in mind, body and spirit.
“I Am” Magnificence Affirmation
The “I Am”, contains the smallest two words yet the most powerful two words. The intention in this journey is to use the “I Am” proclamation to create change and to embody the truth of who you desire to be. Why are these words so powerful? God said to Moses, “I AM WHO I AM.” James Twyman and The Moses Code movie and book actually change ‘The Name’ of God to “I AM THAT, I AM” and then utilized it as a self- affirmation to “manifest miracles”. They say that the insertion of a comma is “the key” to unlock the “Code” so we can all manifest as God in this human experience.
The intention of the “I Am” Magnificence affirmation each day is to help you own the God/Soul magnificence of who you really are and as you affirm statements like, “I am valued and treasured”, you remember your magnificent self and you naturally begin to manifest miracles. You begin to feel and experience the creations of this truth. So essentially, you are affirming every day for 40 days (which creates spiritual transformation) the love you already are and you own your True magnificence so you can experience it, feel it and live out its beauty in your everyday life.
“I AM” Magnificence Affirmation: Day 1
“I am important and I spend sacred time with myself.”
*With your hands on your heart, repeat again ten times “I love me” followed by the “I Am” Magnificence affirmation. So today’s would be, “I love me. I am important and I spend sacred time with myself.”
Next, you will read the messages from the Soul. Everyday you will receive messages of higher guidance from the Soul to support the intention of the day and the overall intent of self-love and owning your magnificence. Your Soul is that part of you that is infinite and has no beginning and no end. Your Soul is one with you, God and all that is. Your Soul knows everything about you past, present and future and it will always guide you with unconditional love to experience your highest and best, better than they could ever imagine. As you listen and pay attention to the wisdom of your Soul you will remember your magnificence and your oneness with the divine. You will naturally heal, accept your gifts, experience joy and fulfillment, and you will transform all aspects of your life to experience miracles of love.
My intention is to channel these messages from the Soul and I trust that your Soul will speak directly to you through these messages, sharing with you exactly what you need.
Your Soul wants you to remember….
This is a divine moment and your Soul, your expanded Self has brought you to this moment in time, to this journey, to remember who you are. You are not separate from the Soul. You are the Soul, your Soul, which is you, is infinite love. You have chosen to expand the experience of your Soul and its expression by being here in this physical experience, this physical body.
It is time to allow the expansion and essence of your Soul to be remembered and expressed in its magnificence through this physical body. You planned this long ago and now it is time to remember and to allow its expansion to be expressed. For this to take place, love of Self, acceptance of Self will be essential for this to natural expansion to occur.
You will not be alone on this journey, in truth you are never alone, and the energy of All That Is, is supporting you in every moment as you express your pure intentions. As you choose to spend sacred time for yourself you open the door to welcome the remembrance of who you really are. As the door opens and you enter, you realize that your Soul, God or whichever name you choose to call it, is the energy of All That Is and its all love. In this remembrance of who you are, you heal, you remember you’re magnificence and why you are here. Your life begins to reflect miracles, purpose, harmony and an expansion of love experienced both within and with others. The impossible becomes possible and miracles occur.
So your Soul wants you to remember to see this time with Self as sacred. Plant the seeds of creation to manifest an inner and outer experience of love that will reflect a new reality, a reality of Heaven on Earth. You will awaken to the truth, that they are not separate yet one.
Self Reflection Question
You will journal to reflect on the messages and spiritual tools shared for the day. I encourage you to buy a beautiful journal for yourself (this could be your first gift of self love) or find an online journal where you have a password and its safe for you to share your inner truths and treasures. Each day I will ask you to reflect on one question that relates to the “I Am” Magnificence affirmation. I encourage you to write honestly and from your heart. This will help you realize who you are and what could possibly be blocking you but it will also empower you to break free so you can be true to yourself and live out your dreams and desires fearlessly.
Self Reflection Question: Day 1
If I felt important then…
I would then encourage you to allow your thoughts to flow and your pen to write as you reflect on the question. A possibility is to write the question over and over again and then finish the sentence. For example:
If I felt important then I would spend more time on myself
If I felt important then I wouldn’t feel so guilty spending time on me
If I felt important then I would value my time with me as much as I value the time I spend on others
You will discover the power of this writing exercise and your Soul will flow through you as the pen reveals the answers you are searching for.
Caterpillar to Butterfly Imagery
When I received guidance to include images everyday from the birth of the caterpillar to its transformation into the magnificence of the butterfly, I got chills throughout my entire body. I knew it was divine guidance and it was going to symbolize our rebirth and spiritual transformation as we remember our divine magnificence and beauty. I personally purchased a butterfly kit to witness this transformation so I can allow myself to be a clear channel for the divine as I witness this miracle unfolding.
Day 1: The Egg
This image is significant to the guidance I received to start this journey on Labor Day. The intention after 40 days is to be reborn in our divine magnificence.
Nighttime “I Love Me” Meditation
Every night for 40 days before you go to sleep, I would like you to repeat the same “I Love Me” Meditation. This is significant and powerful. You are setting intention to program your subconscious mind for the next 8 or so hours of sleep. As a hypnotist I know the power of programing the subconscious mind to create permanent change. The subconscious mind is where you enter at nighttime. All your memories and experiences are stored in your subconscious mind from this lifetime and previous ones. Why not own your power and program it to accept what you choose to believe, feel and create.
Wayne Dyer suggests this as a powerful practice in his book, Wishes Fulfilled which I highly recommend reading. I wanted to share this quote from his book since it’s in divine perfection to the guidance I have been given to share with you each day a changing image of the metamorphosis of the caterpillar into the butterfly. These images along with everything else shared during this 40-day journey are seeds of transformation imbedded into your subconscious minds to create the intention for you to love yourself and own your True magnificence.
“Who can describe the intricacies of a caterpillar weaving its own chrysalis and then emerging as a beautiful butterfly? It is a mystery known only to one mind, as how a subconscious impression turns into a hardened fact. But you can be cognizant to the many mysterious things you do while asleep, all the while believing them to be true and experiencing them in your body even though you are unconscious. I only ask you to enjoy the mysterious and know that it is full potential. Wallow in it, and when you do, you open yourself up to infinite possibilities.”
