I am. You are. We are. It is. These are statements of existence. They are very powerful. More powerful than we have ever realized. Who do you say you are to your own heart?
|I am so wrong.
I am always blowing it.
I am ugly.
I am worthless...
I am pure being.
I am expansive.
I am peaceful and free.
I am wise and good.
I am open and full of Love...
|All your life you have been limiting or freeing yourself through your I ams.|
|The key of Life is to realize that existence is Consciousness and that apart from Consciousness nothing can exist. It is impossible for something to be unknown in Consciouness and to exist.|
|Of course, on a Universal scale, this can only be true on if there is a Universal Consciousness containing all things. This is God. Andhere's the really good newsGod is infinite, unconditional Love and joyous, peaceful freedom.|
God is the Great I Am of existence. When Moses asked the Sacred Flame in the bush who are You? "I am, I am," was literally the answer. I am in Hebrew means, I Exist, or simply, Existence. So two I ams could mean, "I am Existence." I am, I am could also mean something like, I exist as I am, I exist in my true natureand God's true nature is pure, infinite Being, the essence of all Existence.
|The key to life has been expressed like this, "As above, so below. As within, so without." Or like this, "The issues (dynamics) of life flow from your heart." Or like this, "Be it unto you according to your faith."
Change your inner consciousnessyour awareness, how you see and what you seeand your whole life will change.
Consciousness is the causetime and space are the effects.
All outer reality mirrors our state of consciousness. The way to change your life and thus your world is not to work to change itor especially to try and change othersfor life MUST reflect your consciousness as is it locked in place by beliefs, imaginings, desires and emotions. Unless your actual consciousness changes all your work will continue to mirror your deeply held I ams, your beliefs about yourself, others, the Sacred and life.
In your deepest, truest essence, whether you have realized it or not, your I am can only exists because you are in Existence, the Great I Am. And in the Radiantly Loving eyes of the One who makes us Open and Free, you are already whole, divine, loved and shining with Love. You are already free. This is your true I am, the spiritual one that will never die. Waking up to this is "salvation" which actually means to be Open and Free.

|1. Repeat I am statements until you feel they are real. Get a flow of repetition going and stay in it.
2. Why not add, "in God, or Christ," after each statement if that carries you into Love. If not, leave it as is, or add what is alive for you. If the name God, or Christ seem dead and oppressive, you may need to heal a frozen image of the Divine you hold that inflicts you with negative feelings. (See the God Is Workshop for healing.) Divine reality is far beyond religions... far beyond names. You could say, the Great Love or Pure Being as well.
2. Observe the resistance that arises in you but don't react against it.
3. Make a firm commitment of purpose to accept your I ams and to recognize as ultimately false to your deepest being those old feelings that come from wounds and self imposed limiting beliefs.
4. Continue with your I ams. Allow the realization of truth to break through the barriers of the past. Express good things to others. You are being born into who you are, who you have always been and always will be. The shadows are passing away, new things have come!
|JUST RELAX AND LISTEN
You can also just relax and listen to these recorded I am affirmations with music and effects. Just put on your headphones, lay back and click on this audio file. It is a powerful experience! If you like it, listen often. Get it deeply into your heart through repetition. (I left off the "in God" as an act of Love for the sake of those who are wounded by religion, to open this up for them, but please feel free to add your own, from your heart. This will get you interactive with the Sacred, Silent Source of all.)

In doing transformational exercises don't look for signs of change: just work on soaking higher truth into your heart, thus changing how you see yourself. This will shift how you perceive the world. Accept you can't even lift one finger to help God change those powerful dynamics of your life you sense are beyond your control. Let go and allow God to do the Divine work and wonder. You do your part, shifting your consciousness through spiritual exercises and in unexpected ways Life will began adjusting to mirror how you see.
