Alchemical Affirmations

You are loved.
You are needed.
You are enough.

The new year is upon us! But — we must not forget to affirm ourselves while we celebrate the coming of the new year with friends, family, and loved ones. It is imperative that we continue to uplift ourselves as we give gratitude for all that we are and all that we have. Alchemical Affirmations will keep you focused on Self while you tend to the family and festivities that abound during the holiday season.

Your Old Story

Acknowledging your old story is the first step toward healing that story. Alchemical Affirmations gives the old story the audience it needs in order to be heard and the lessons learned. We won’t dwell here — simply acknowledge what is so that we can move forward to what will be manifest.

Your New Story

By giving audience to our old story, we clear out the cobwebs that have blocked those stories from freeing themselves from our minds and hearts. This clearing makes space for the new story we are about to write. The alchemical process allows us to free ourselves from our old stories and manifest new stories in their place.

Affirming Self

There is no secret that affirmations are a strong tool for healing. It has been scientifically proven long ago. When we mix in creativity to the simmering pot of power affirmations, we super charge the alchemical process that turns our old stories into the new stories we are manifesting in the present.

Synergistically manifesting love of self…

Image + Words = Healing

Both have been proven to cause and create healing. In Intentional Creativity(R), both art and writing are key components to help us effect healing. Alchemical Affirmations is no different…

We begin with a Red Thread Circle to center and ground ourselves. An invocation is recited to invite the energy of all that is good into the space and into our hearts. We share our stories if we are called. We witness each other and are witnessed ourselves by the others. This is our base — the stock that we add to the pot to begin seasoning the final meal.

we vision and manifest our healed self…

Re-Writing Our Stories

We can never heal our own stories if we keep them buried. We must dust them off, bring them into the Light, acknowledge their presence, and learn the lessons we were meant to learn. BUT — we must not dwell in this space! Our acknowledgement of what was allows us to move forward into what will be.

You are the author of your own life! There are no rules in writing that says you cannot change the current story. No well known novel leads you down the path of the “same old story.” There’s action, adventure, and twists and turns. At the end of the novel, the protagonist being/doing/receiving whatever it is the author sees fit.

You are both the protagonist and author of your own story.
Write the life YOU want to live!

Through the alchemy of Intentional Creativity, you will transform your old story into the story of the life you want to live. Alchemical Affirmations is a jumping off point for you to begin authoring your own story. Take the pen back and tell your Self just how f*cking bad ass you really are!

AFFIRM YOUR SELF!

“A woman in harmony with her spirit is like a river flowing. She goes where she will without pretense and arrives at her destination prepared to be herself and only herself.”
~Maya Angelou

Create Your Own Affirmation Cards

A whole deck of affirmation cards to be exact…

1. Out With The Old

We will take time to write down our old stories in our journals. Writing down the old story gives it the voice it needs to express itself and be heard. Hearing the old story begins the process of healing those stories.

2. Acknowledgment

Leaning in and listening to the old stories helps us to hear the messages that we need to receive from them. If we do not give these stories the opportunity to express themselves AND listen for what we are to learn from them, then we can never heal them.

3. In With The New

Once we have spent time with the old story — just enough to acknowledge and learn from it — then we can begin to write our story anew. Are you ready to move from the old stories that have been holding you back?

4. Paint, Play, Release

Time to stir in some creativity! Watercolor paper, acrylic paint, markers, glitter… Let your Inner Child out to play in some paint! And at the same time, release the old story. It no longer serves you…

5. Contemplation

From your new story, what affirmations can you garner? What soul stirring, heART felt words can you use to empower your Self to live the new story you have authored?

6. Alchemical Affirmations

And then we create our affirmation card decks…

Replay available after the live class if you are unable to attend live.

Gather your supplies (supply list available upon registration), a cuppa, some chocolate, and invite your Muse — she’ll only show up anyway! Prepare for a half day of moving from unaffirmed to affirmed. Be witnessed and witness others. Enter a circle of women who are all causing and creating greatness for themselves.

At the end of our time together, you will have a 16-card deck of affirmations that apply intimately to you and your life and which you can add to as often as you like.
Relevant. Timely. Timeless…

There will be laughter, joy, giggles, and maybe some tears — happy and sad. In the end, you will have moved out the stagnant past and ushered in a bright new present that will lead you to live your best life.

It is time that we stop dwelling on what was — it does not define who you are today. While we are still in the energy of the Full Moon realized the day before (November 19th), let us release these old stories and return them to the Universe. Let us embrace what uplifts and empowers us. Let us create the affirmations for our new story.
