“I am safe! I am loved! All my needs are being met!”

Good Sunday morning to you all! The week I am leaving behind has been a good one! But the week I am headed into is bound to be better! The affirmation above is one that is simple and powerful! To know that we are safe in this world, ,loved, and that our needs are being met!! Well, that pretty much covers us entirely……in one simple sentence!

Sometimes when I am out alone, in a new area, I can become a little overwhelmed with a feeling of not knowing where I am or just feel alone and vulnerable. When this happens I know it is just my mind working a little overtime and I say an affirmation very similar to the one above. My affirmation has the word “safe” in it. “I am safe”  is a calming statement. Repeat that to yourself in situations where you feel less than comfortable in your surroundings, it can calm your nerves.

Feeling safe is a basic instinct, one we have felt since we were born, probably well before that! Giving babies pacifiers to calm them is a great example of our need to feel safe. When my daughter had her first baby, the Dr. explained to her why a pacifier worked to calm her daughter in this way; she said the baby doesn’t understand all that is happening, she is in a new environment and gets rattled easily at times, putting a pacifier in her mouth is like causing her little world to set itself upright, it grounded her so that she could relax. We adults can’t exactly walk around with a pacifier to pull out at any given moment to help us feel “safe”!!

Next best thing? An affirmation! Nobody knows you’re doing it and they work wonders!! I tell you start doing them and they will become your best friend in times of stress.

( I know this seems pretty basic information, I think you may be surprised by how many people have trouble with this and may not realize they can take control of that feeling.)

“I am safe in the universe! All life love and supports me”

Happy New Years Eve! Here Comes 2013! Are You Ready?

2012

Well as they say “Out with the old, in with the new!” And so tonight ends the year 2012!! It has been an interesting year around the world! Politics, Olympics, weather, not to mention the terrible tragedies that have occurred this year! So much happened in 2012!

I am praying 2013 will be as eventful but hopefully for different reasons! I think 2012 was a very tumultuous year!  I am praying that 2013 will be a year of great change for all the right reasons!

In the meantime though, I wanted to say Happy New Years Eve!  If you go out to ring in the new year may you be safe and responsible if drinking! Designated drivers are all the rage…get one!  Have fun! Be safe, for you and for everyone else!

And if you are in the United States here is a number you can call for a tow and a ride home! Its offered by AAA and it is for real guys! So use it if you need to!  Print this number and put it in your pocket before you head out! And remember to make the best decisions for you, your friends and family!
