What is an affirmation???

WHAT IS AN AFFIRMATION????
An affirmation to me, is a question I propose to myself every day and then listen closely to the answer to that question...the answer comes from deep within me.
An affirmation is a personal practice where you honor your heart...
An affirmation mirrors the gentle stirrings of your soul...
The more you do this the more comfortable and aware of your own voice and your own skills you become...
The more you do this the more messages you are open to...
And the closer you come to your true self...
JUST HOW DO I GO ABOUT DOING AN AFFIRMATION????
First: you must be willing to be OPEN to the messages...
Rhythm: you must be willing to find your own creative drumbeat...it could be in the morning to cleanse and clear yourself and start your day....or it could be in the evening as a reflection...
Time: you must be willing to claim some time for yourself...
Place: you must be willing to provide yourself with a place where you can collect your affirmations , your artwork, and your spirit...it can be loose papers, it can be a special journal, it can be anything you wish to place your thoughts on, the one thing it needs to be is a place where you honor who you are....so make it a special place.
So, begin to focus on the FUN you will have while you become more aware of your voice and the messages you have to give to yourself...
See you soon.....
Artfully Yours,
Pattie

If everything goes well today (meaning the sun shines and the creek don't rise) I should have the first of my affirmations up today. Since you proposed it a few weeks ago I have come up with a couple and drawn them out in my journal. My goal is to actually draw them out on ATC cards, but will settle for getting them onto any paper and then scanning them for my blog. I might not come up with something daily, but heading that way. Thanks for the inspiration.

I'm so glad I found your space. I know God has led me here. I read The Artist Way by Julia Cameron a while back and loved it. I did not continue with the suggestions like doing morning pages everyday and daily affirmations. I will now, today's a new day. Thanks!
Oh by the way I'll try to follow your directions to leave a link to my spot. htp://artfulcollections.blogspot.com/
