So I don't know about you, but I haven't always been a big fan of affirmations!
I saw them as a nice afterthought, but not something that was massively impactful!
Maybe your experience has been similar to mine - I see the affirmation, I think something along the lines of "Oh I love that!" I print it up, put it somewhere, and then never look at it again.
No wonder I thought they weren't impactful!
But recently something has changed for me!
I decided to give affirmations another try - to really make it my intention to use them in a way that was impactful.
And so I created a spiritual ritual around my affirmation.
I had no idea how powerful this would be!! I had always used affirmations as something I did while I was brushing my teeth (anyone else have their affirmations taped to their bathroom mirror?) but for me, that just never worked. (By day two I was forgetting all about it and after a month I was peeling the affirmation of the mirror lol!)
Creating a spiritual ritual around my affirmation met so many of the needs that I had because it caused me to slow down and actually feel the affirmation - instead of it being something I had as a fleeting thought, slowing down and creating a space to really focus on it allowed me to feel it in my body!!
And that's when it began to integrate into who I am.
Now taking that moment to stop, pause, and reflect on my affirmation is one of the most important parts of my day!
Curious about what a spiritual ritual that includes an affirmation would look like?
Well, here's what I did:
So Soul Sister, maybe you've tried the affirmations thing and it hasn't worked for you - that's ok! But maybe you want to give it another try - and maybe you want to incorporate it into a spiritual practice. If you do I offer you the affirmation I am using this month:
I would love to hear about your experiences with affirmations and how they have impacted your life!
And if you decide to build your own spiritual ritual I totally want to hear about that too!!!
Sending you so much love,

She believes that life doesn’t have to work out exactly the way we think it “should” in order to be enjoyed and that people don’t have to be perfect in order to be loved.
She believes that we all have the voice of truth inside of us but sometimes it can be hard to hear. And most importantly that we must live between the tension of accepting the things we cannot change and taking massive action on the things we can!
Meg creates spaces where women can slow down and process all the things that are influencing and controlling their lives - their everyday thoughts, emotions, and the stories they have been telling themselves.
Spaces where they can look at their inner world, gain valuable insight and then reclaim their personal authority, and make conscious decisions that transform the way they experience their lives!
Through one on one coaching, group coaching and workshops Meg helps women show up in the world with more love, and less ego, more compassion, and less judgment, more vulnerability, and less shame, more emotional agility and less fear!
