In the old fairy tales we read as children, the wizard was always conjuring. Usually they would recite incantations in which they would often use the words: Hocus Pocus, Abracadabra and Alakazam. We were never taught the meaning of these words. As children, most of us liked the magical emphasis they gave to the story. Yet, there was a powerful message in these words and here it is: “With my words I create.”
In some cases, we have become our own bullies as we look in the mirror and tell ourselves, “I am ugly.” “I am worthless.” “I am a screw-up.” “I am poor.”
The words “I am” can be liken to the soil of Mother Earth. The words you attach to “I am” are like the seeds you sow in Mother Earth. You have the option of planting seeds that are going to produce flowers or weeds. Each will grow in the soil, however the one you cultivate will be the one that dominants your garden. Do you want weeds or flowers?
Speak of yourself in the positive. Accentuate that which is positive about you. Eliminate the negative. Refrain from criticizing yourself. You are a divine magnificent expression of Source Energy in action and your garden should be one of flowers.
