The phrase “I am” sound so simple yet powerful. The expression determines a whole lot of things in our lives. By definition, “I am” can be defined as one’s state of being at any particular moment. This state of being is a result of an individual’s thoughts. We create our state of being with our thoughts and from our state of beings comes our emotions, feelings, actions, and behaviors, which goes on to create conditions and circumstances that guide what results we get in life. Thus it is essential to understand and be aware of what we attached to those two words – “I am.”
The first step in effectively using these two words is to understand who we are, the creative nature of our being. We are spirit, we have soul, and we live in a body. Our thoughts are powerful; that is, they are potent. They have in them, creative ability. Whatever we suggest to our self or think upon enough will come to reality. And what we think upon long enough will come out of our mouth, and that becomes our reality. Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.[i] For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.[ii] Thus, it is essential to know and understand that as human beings, our thoughts play a major role in our lives. We create things, circumstances, and environment through our thoughts. Take for instance, before you do dress up to go to work, you assess your dressing in your mind, and how it will go in the day with your thoughts and imagination before actually dressing up. The dressing up came after passing the mark in your thoughts and imagination, which is the physical part of the dressing and the creative part of it.
So knowing the creative power we have with our thoughts, it helps us understand how that we also create is our state of being with our words and thoughts and from there we create the conditions and circumstances we experience in our lives. How do we do that? We create our state of being with words we attached to these two phrases, “I Am.” What words follow these two phrases – are they positive words or negative words. Are they lifting words or depressing words? Be conscious of the words you are attaching to these two phrases… take note of them. Ensure they are positive words like “I am beautiful,” “I am blessed,” and “I am confident.” Not depressing or negative words such as “I am stupid,” or “I am dumb.” The negative words might sound as if we are trying to describe ourselves at the moment; however, because of our creative potential, we are also creating the circumstances to continue to be the negative words. We can lift ourselves out of those circumstances by attaching positive words to the phrases “I am” such as “I am blessed,” “I am good,” “I am wealthy” etc.
You don’t have to wait till issues arise in your life or negative circumstances before you use these positive words. Wake in the morning and create the experience you want with the circumstances, conditions, and results you want for the day by telling yourself what you are, what you want to be. You have the power, and you have the ability. It might take a while before it starts forming, keep at it, it will develop. Below is an example of words you can attach to your “I am.”
I am blessed. I am a blessing. I am royal. I am favored. I am a victor; I am a winner. I am rich. I am prosperous. I am wealthy. I am bold. I am free. I am lifted up. I am honored. I am whole. I am healthy. I am prosperous. I am beautiful. I am a wonder. I am awesome. I am unique. I am distinct. I am joyful. I am amazing. I am honorable. I am peaceful. I am grateful. I am intelligent.
