You and only you determine how you travel on your life path alone. There are several ways to become unstuck and affirm your life ‘s path today !

To unlock  a feeling of being stuck , you can start by asking yourself, what you affirm about yourself today? What does it mean to affirm? To validate, confirm, state positively. Most of us look back with grim feelings of a hazy year. This is energy; energy changes like the ebb and flow of our bodies. However, by affirming what you know in your heart that is good, pure, healthy and gratuitous, you can move forward in knowing your life affirmation as positive in nature. When you rekindle your light, you shine much brighter and see your life’s path more clearly.

It’s not where you have been, but where you are going that counts. The challenges of the past are old energy, feelings of yesterday. When you allow old feelings of yesterday to interfere in your today, you become stuck. Yes, healing takes time. However, rejection is redirection. Change or tweak your life plan if the original is not working. Easier said than done, you might be thinking. My response: simplify, simplify, simplify. Many of us get ahead of ourselves. Here are a few exercises in which to affirm or re- affirm your magnificence.

Solitude — Did you know the original songs written by Neil Diamond were written in complete solitude? At a time when he had no money or home,  just a guitar and himself. He rented a one room flat and locked himself away from distractions. The greatest American classic tunes such as “Cherry, Cherry,” “Solitary Man” and “Sweet Caroline” were created and born from within silence of the mind and opening of the heart. Reset your thoughts by opening your heart. Try this 10 minutes or more everyday, in solitude.

Create a personal mantra — If you are stuck or unsure how to move forward from where you are, choose a few inspiring words that you aspire toward as your inner therapeutic tool . This can be words such as, “Miracles Happen for me, NOW!” A new mantra attracts good energy and activates a surge of positive change in thought and action. The act of a mantra also interrupts negative thoughts and worry, in addition it un- invites those toxic people in your life who are consuming your thoughts.

Your written word — Most if not all business professionals succeed based on a plan. Hence, the business plan . A simple format is to write out your mission, place 3  action steps,  a strategy and goals by which you calculate to succeed. Your written word is a concrete declaration and commitment to yourself. A 30- or 60- or 90-day plan is useful for changing and tweaking your plan as you proceed. The affirmation process throughout the year can be accomplished much the same way, why not?

Feeling — Many of us are afraid to feel our feelings. Yet it is our feelings that allow us to dig deep and embrace our pain. When you embrace pain, you slowly break down those walls you have been keeping up. Walls are not answers — they are excuses. So much energy is involved in maintaining walls. Your hurt leads to answers, but one cannot comprehend what those answers are when your walls have you closed off to people, opportunities and your true potential (higher self). Define the root of your pain and you have reached gold. Chances are your pain is linked to an old belief system that you may be in denial of. Your choice is to become awakened. It’s a transform or die world we are living in today. We are all here to help each other and you are not alone on your path. Transformation is part of the reinvention process, where you can become what you desire and aspire.

Believing — To achieve, you must believe. Belief in self is essential to accomplishing your dreams. Start with your personal mantra and “OM” it to your heart’s content. If you choose to look outward, choose a positive mentor who can validate your strengths, offer guidance and assist you with breaking old thinking patterns.

Make Your Moments Count — Organize your time and make your moments count. Time often escapes us with day-to-day minutia. This is not who we are. This is who we have become. Become what counts in your life!

Declare your affirmation — With a lipstick or washable marker, write out what you declare on your bathroom mirror. You will be amazed how looking at your affirmation everyday will create a new belief system. What I affirm and declare in my life today is that, “I am good, I attract good and I live an exceptional life!” What do you affirm in your life today?
