I Am

I mentioned a couple of days ago that I was reading the new Wayne Dyer book, Wishes Fulfilled.
One of the things that he mentions is the use of I am......he talks about how we use I can't, I won't
I am not, but I am is one of the keys to the life you seek.  As in most every book he has written,
he writes about your thoughts, "you get what you think about, whether you want it or not".

I used those words I am in a meditation class I taught this week.  I talked about what it is you are really seeking, what it is you want in your life.  As always, we started with the breathe, slow gentle breaths, bringing all awareness to the breathe.......then we began the I am......I am peaceful......I am safe.....I am loved.....I am kind.....I am healthy......I am happy.....I am worthy......I am smart......
I am creative.....see where this is going?  You figure out what you need to finish that phrase I am.....
then in meditation, or at night before you go to sleep......breathe, and say I am.

Dr.Dyer talks about how  important it is to control your thoughts those last few minutes before you go to sleep, that whatever you think of during those last few minutes is planted in the sub-conscious for the rest of the night.  No wonder when we go to sleep worried, fretting about our lives, we wake up the same way......if we sleep at all!

I know what it is like to have a runaway train in your brain when you lie in your bed, but for the past few nights, I have practiced I am......and it works.  Night before last, I had crazy scary nightmares, I awoke in a cold sweat......but I started my breath work, then my I a few minutes I was sleeping peacefully.  All I can tell you, it works for me.  The funny thing, I have been doing I am for I do my daily walks.  For those I ams that I say as I walk, they really have changed my life through the years, I just never thought about them before going to sleep.

This is the post I had written a couple of nights ago, well sorta, that one never came back.
I found it interesting that something that I had done for years on my daily walks, was written about by such a famous author.  It was eye opening to do the same old same old, at a different time and took my I am to a whole new level.  I hope you discover and claim, your personal I am.....and begin to practice it, either/and during walks or before you go to sleep.

Good night, Sweet dreams


  1. I really like Wayne Dyer and have a few of his books. I totally believe we are the creators of our reality. We need to tell ourselves good stories. I often listen to guided hypnosis tapes before I fall asleep that help to tap into our sub-conscious to heal our bodies/release creativity etc.
