Today is the day, the day I say yes.

I say yes to dreams.

I say yes to inspiration.

I  say yes to joy,

yes to love,

yes to hard work,

yes to perfect health.

I say yes to risk

and yes to faith,

yes to full expression

and alignment

and pennies from heaven.

Today, I say Yes, I am that.

I say yes to God’s divine love and yes to my unmistakable connection to it.

Today, I say yes to it All.

Yes, yes, yes!

oprah & deepak’s meditation experience

The current 21 day meditation experience offered by Oprah and Deepak is really excellent. If you haven’t checked this one out yet, I recommend doing so.

It’s not scripted for children, but I’ve been playing the meditations at bedtime for my three little ones and they respond to it. My 9 year old daughter seems to benefit most. She is a chronic night waker and since starting this she has slept soundly in her bed until 7:30am. Her latest feedback on Deepak, “Mommy, he is a wise man.” The dharma talks also inspire great questions like, “What’s abundance?” and, “How does the Universe work?”

Typically Oprah sells downloads of the meditations upon completion of the 21 days so you can purchase what you missed. Visit Oprah.com for details.

are you good?

Dr. Wayne Dyer is such an awesome guy.  Last year, PBS aired his “Wishes Fulfilled” lecture.  Many of you may have seen this or have read his books, but I just wanted to share my favorite moment from his lecture…  his “I AM” statements.

Dr. Wayne tells us that sleep is the time that our minds marinate – and the last thoughts that pass through our minds on the the way to la-la land are the thoughts that we brew for the next 8 hours or so.  He urges us to keep those thoughts positive and affirming, so we soak in love while our minds take a break from the rat race.  He says we should fill the last five minutes of wakefulness with “I AM” statements.

I mentioned how I use these statements with my kids a few days ago on BUBs, but I also use them on myself.

I use these affirmations specifically at times when I feel unfocused or when I’m feeling unlovable and undeserving of goodness.  During that quiet time in bed when sometimes it feels like every problem I’ve ever had decides to surface and inflate, I remind myself, “I am loving.  I am loved.  I am light.  I am worthy.  I am good,” with confidence that the next day will bring new perspective.

And, of course, these affirmations work so beautifully with children, especially those who could use a little gentle reprogramming.  Most nights, as I tuck my kiddos into bed I send them to dreamland with a long list of “I AM” statements; it’s never too early to start practicing good habits.  Repeating after me, they affirm, “I am loving.  I am loved.  I am healthy.  I am well.  I am kind.  I am compassionate.  I am happy.  I am good.”  As I crept out the bedroom door one night, my oldest piped out, “Mommy, I feel weird.”  I looked at her and laughed and said, “I am normal.”  Turning on the night light and heading downstairs, I could hear her repeating, “I am normal.  I am normal.  I am normal…”  LOL.
