I love the quote, “It’s a dream…until you write it down…then it’s a goal.” -anonymous

My husband asked me the other day what I have gotten out of doing this 21-day Affirmation cleanse. I told him it has helped in 4 areas:

1) Choosing another thought. (I am better, quicker and it is easier for me to choose another thought as soon as a negative or fearful thought enters my mind). I have to say, this has been my most exciting improvement.

2) Setting a goal and accomplishing it: doing this 21-day Affirmation Cleanse.

3)My own personal goal while doing this 21-day Affirmation cleanse … Read More »


Day 20 in The 21-day Affirmation Cleanse-love & appreciation

Posted on February 12th, by Ally in The 21-day Affirmation Cleanse. No Comments

Today’s Cleansing Affirmation:

I APPRECIATE MY LIFE AND THE LOVING PEOPLE IN IT.

As you know Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. Some people despise this day because they believe that it is only about having a significant other to love and to love them back. This is not what Valentine’s day is about…at least it’s not how I have ever viewed it.

Valentine’s Day for me is about expressing my love and appreciation for the people who are close to me in my life. This includes, my parents, my siblings, my children, my friends and neighbors. They are pure examples of love in the way they treat everyone around them. They are giving and loving people who are trying to make the world a better place. Valentine’s Day is just 1 of several days that I like to show my love and appreciation to the people in my life.

When we show appreciation for others, this creates a powerful vibration that connects us to our spirit and creates positive emotions for us. The more we show appreciation for someone or something in our life, the better we feel. The … Read More »


Day 19 in The 21-day Affirmation Cleanse-your comfort zone

Posted on February 11th, by Ally in The 21-day Affirmation Cleanse. 1 Comment

Today’s Cleansing Affirmation:

It is easy for me to step out of my comfort zone.

Are you comfortable stepping out of your comfort zone? Very few of us are…but this is where our souls can grow and learn…and improve!

Your comfort zone is comfortable because it is a place, a zone, of where you know what to expect. Going out of your comfort zone is going out on a limb; attempting the unknown. It can be scary because there is the chance you might fail…or possibly lose. But what if you actually gain something???

To change is to grow. When we grow, we move beyond our comfort zone. If you think about it, when we stay in our comfort zone, we are really just living in the past, where we know the results. When we engage in the present, it forces us to be open to new opportunities that come our way. And, new opportunities create a new response from our spirit. This is where our growth and improvement occur.

One of the biggest things that holds many of us back is our fear of what people will think. That is just … Read More »


Day 18 in The 21-day Affirmation Cleanse-the words we speak

Posted on February 10th, by Ally in The 21-day Affirmation Cleanse. No Comments

Today’s Cleansing Affirmation:

I AM TEACHABLE. I AM WILLING TO LEARN NEW THINGS.

Last night my girlfriends and their spouses took me out to celebrate my birthday. We had such an enjoyable time. What made it so enjoyable was the loving, energetic people I was surrounded by, our conversation, the atmosphere and how much we laughed. I love laughing as much as we did. It was one of those nights where my face hurt from smiling and laughing so much. It was a time I will always hold dear to me because the love and happiness that each person emanated, was infectious. Thank you, my giving, thoughtful, fun, positive, energetic, dear friends! It meant more to me than you’ll ever know…mainly because of the kind of people you all are…I feel so grateful and so blessed that you are in my life.

Another fun group sitting at the table behind us was celebrating a birthday too. When we asked the other birthday girl if her “real” birthday was last night, she said this, “No. My birthday is on Monday. That is why we had to celebrate tonight…because Monday I will be … Read More »


Day 17 in the 21-day Affirmation Cleanse-self-care

Posted on February 9th, by Ally in The 21-day Affirmation Cleanse. No Comments

Today’s Cleansing Affirmation:

I LOVINGLY TAKE TIME TO CARE FOR MY MIND, BODY & SOUL. I ENJOY FEELING BALANCED IN ALL AREAS OF LIFE.

I have a couple of friends who are the most giving people I know. They give, give, give of themselves to everyone, at any time, any place…and rarely take time for themselves. They have been this way their entire life. It is part of who they are and they love to do it and they really don’t know how to be any other way than giving. This is a trait I so admire about them.

My mom tends to be this way too. Now that I have become a mom, I fully understand why she did and still does everything for her children. Us moms wouldn’t have it any other way. It’s called unconditional love.

Some people give too much to their jobs. Not only do they put their jobs before themselves, they put their jobs before their family and friends and in the long run, this can be devastating on relationships.

However, there comes a time when we need to show ourselves some unconditional love. This is called … Read More »


Day 16 in The 21-day Affirmation Cleanse-trust your life

Posted on February 8th, by Ally in The 21-day Affirmation Cleanse. No Comments

Today’s Cleansing Affirmation:

I LET GO AND TRUST THAT MY LIFE IS HAPPENING PERFECTLY.

A few weeks ago, an old friend of mine was having a tough time dealing with life. We talked for an hour or so and after hanging up the phone, I thought about our conversation. She knew what she needed to do. She, like me, believes in affirmations and that everything happens exactly how it is supposed to in our lives. It’s just that when we’re in the thick of a sad or ugly circumstance, it’s challenging to see the light peaking through the dense forest. That’s why we need relationships, to lean on and to call upon, when our spirit is feeling lost.

I said a prayer to give her the strength she needed to be strong to get her through the situation. I also hoped that our conversation left her feeling better, stronger and trusting in life’s path. Then I thouht to myself, if I were in her shoes, what would she have said to me that would have made me feel better? She would have said things like this to me…and it would have reminded me that life … Read More »


Day 15 in The 21-day Affirmation Cleanse-dream big

Posted on February 7th, by Ally in The 21-day Affirmation Cleanse. No Comments

Today’s Cleansing Affirmation:

STAYING FOCUSED ON MY GOALS IS EASY FOR ME.

Are you doing what you really dream of doing with your life? Not really? Why not? What is holding you back? Who says that you don’t have time?…

Let’s DREAM BIG:

Remember, you are in charge of your own life. You are also in charge of your own thoughts, which can also be excuses, which are just creating obstacles. How can we make these obstacles dissolve? Together we can come up with a P.L.A.N.

If you could do and be anything you wanted to do and be, what would it be? Make a PICTURE of it in your mind. See it, hear it, taste it, smell it, feel it.

Next, make a LIST of what steps you need to start implementing to just get it started in the right direction. Even if the steps to becoming a therapist for children with disabilities, means simply looking up schools and classes of how to get the education or the certification. Starting small is just fine. Start anywhere.

The 3rd step to your plan is to APPLY that list in your daily schedule. … Read More »


Day-14 of The Affirmation Cleanse-living in the now

Posted on February 6th, by Ally in The 21-day Affirmation Cleanse. No Comments

Today’s Cleansing Affirmation:

I CHOOSE TO LIVE IN THIS PRESENT MOMENT WITH JOY. I AM IN THE PERFECT PLACE AT THE PERFECT TIME.

One of my New Year “Commitments” (rather than a resolution) is to be more present. It was Eckhart Tolle who gave me my “ah-ha” moment that when we truly are living “in the now” or “in the moment,” we do not have or feel stress. We feel stress when we are thinking or worrying about what ‘could’ happen in in future or thinking of our past and things we may regret, or things that brought us pain.

When my mom was diagonosed with cancer, she did not tell anyone, not even her family for 3 days. She said when she heard the news, she decided this, ‘It is what it is. All I can do now is live in this moment that I have been given.’

It sounds so easy, but this is a very challenging thing to do if we are used to thinking and worrying about the future or our past.

If we keep worrying about the future, or replaying our past regrets or what someone said to us, that hurt … Read More »


Day 13 in The 21-day Affirmation Cleanse-turning fear into love

Posted on February 5th, by Ally in The 21-day Affirmation Cleanse. No Comments

Today’s Cleansing Affirmation:

IT IS ONLY A THOUGHT AND A THOUGHT CAN BE CHANGED. I CAN CHOOSE A DIFFERENT THOUGHT. I AM SAFE.

This affirmation seems so simple…yet it is very profound. Once we get into the wonderful habit of being able to choose a different thought, when the one or ones we are thinking aren’t serving us, we know we are on our way to changing our lives.

This affirmation is so powerful for me when I have a thought, any thought, about fear. As soon as I realize the thought I was having of fear is really starting to lead me down the path of more fearful thoughts, I stop right then and there and say, “It is only a thought and a thought can be changed. I can choose a different thought.” This affirmation starts my “practice” of choosing powerful affirmations (which are thoughts too), that make me feel good, and feel love, not fear.

I really cannot emphasize enough how much this affirmation has been serving me during this 21 -day Affirmation cleanse. I have really been able to see a huge change in my way of … Read More »


Day 12 in The 21-day Affirmation Cleanse-flexibility

Posted on February 4th, by Ally in The 21-day Affirmation Cleanse. No Comments

Today’s Cleansing Affirmation:

I AM FLEXIBLE. I RELEASE THE OLD PATTERNS THAT NO LONGER SERVE ME. THERE ARE ENDLESS WAYS TO DO THINGS AND TO VIEW THINGS.

My mom is one of the most flexible people I know. I strive to be as flexible as she is every day. I am taking good notes…does that count? Whenever I ask her to help me with something or if I can change something around with our current plans, she is a yes type of person.

I am in full practice with you all today. I have written this affirmation down 20 times in my journal just now. I would like to be more flexible and this is one of my goals with this affirmation cleansing. I would love to be more of a “yes” kind of person. I’m up for the challenge because I want to see this area of my ego change.

Now that we are half way through our cleanse, think of something, a certain thought pattern that you would like to work on, change, dissolve. Throughout this cleanse, we have been working on changing our thoughts from negative to positive and … Read More »
