Poetry Meets Intuition

Affirmations-are-born (3)Some people like to doodle or color but when my pen hits paper I love to write. One of my favored forms of writing is poetry. The first time my work was officially published was decades ago..and it was poetry.

I adore writing words that can warmly curl around a wounded heart and add light to the healing process. So imagine my complete delight when I tried my hand at writing my own affirmations and they worked.

When poetry meets Intuition, an affirmation is born.

Affirmations are life affirming statements that feel empowering to read. They help unplug and rewire fearful thinking. So upgrade your thoughts and allow the Divine Plan of your life to come to pass.

When we turn the thoughts we think and the words we say about ourselves in a positive direction we are affirming our good and fundamentally creating it.

I-live-big-I-love-big (2)This is just a sample of my affirmations. If you would like to see more, sign up to be on my Affirmations Guest List and receive a weekly email with the latest and the favorites! Click Here for more info!

Affirmations are constructive, optimistic statements written in the present tense and are spoken with passion repeatedly to electrify and impress the subconscious mind. They describe a desired situation, and trigger it into positive action.

As-I-accept-and-love (1)Your feelings are the wings of your intuition so feel them and set them free.

You-are-a-loved-child-of (1)

There is something alluring about the way the process works. Read them, repeat them, speak them out loud in the morning as you roll out of bed, say them in the evening as you lull yourself to sleep and say them in between!

Hug People With Your Words, Love is Contagious!

IMAG6810Have you ever given a book as a gift? They make great gifts and can stimulate the mind and open it as well..along with the heart. One of the most memorable gifts I have ever received, aside from my husband and children, is the experience of seeing something I have written published. I love to hug people with my words.

There is something so beautiful about the written word. The spoken word has true impact on us as well, especially when accompanied by genuine emotion. The words we think, say and write hold power as do the words we read. Before I send an email I read through it a few times to make sure there are no errors. Before a speaking engagement or a reading of any kind, I say a silent prayer asking the Universe for strength and wisdom so that everything I think, see and say, be only for the highest good of all.

As a psychic medium, I am a conduit between worlds and an interpreter of information. I act as both a voice for the higher self and a link between worlds. My goal is to provide a clean and non-biased interpretation of what I see intuitively speaking. Because I’m so visual by nature, psychic information is presented on the screen in my head, like a mini-action movie. This is where the interpretation comes in. My personality and interests naturally shine through whatever I say.

I was recently in California and on the MAX Morning Show with ‘MURPHY and KIM on 105.7MAXFM. Murphy and Kim are hilarious hosts with a great professional chemistry. They keep things exciting and moving along quickly. They asked me to do some on-air readings and naturally, I loved the idea!

Frank Jack Murphy Me Kim KayaThe moment I heard the first caller’s voice, the screen in my head lit up with an assortment of pictures. Laughter filled the studio and the time flew swiftly by.

I felt so great as I left the studio and even better when I received an email from the show’s producer with some great feedback and a copy of an email or two from a listener who initially was not at all a believer and considered herself to be “very skeptical”. After her on-air reading she emailed again to say Jodi…”was right on”…and… “She made me a believer!”

Hug-people-with-your (1)

This was the first of several comments I heard or read, most of which were wonderfully positive. Apparently, a listener thought I should have spent more time with each caller. Though I try to meet the needs of everyone I read, it is just not possible to please everybody and for that I am sorry.

Good mediums maintain high universal standards, ethics, and morals. They also are able to sustain emotional balance, which of course helps maintain their ability to feel compassion. In my line of work, as well as every other, a powerful combination is compassion, skill, sound training and high ethical standards.

It is because I know from way down deep that I adhere to this, that I am able to let some of what people say roll off of me. Believe me, this has been a tremendous process.

When-I-feel-afraid-II have a bucket full of tools and techniques I use to lift me out of a negative space, help me gain perspective and/or deal with my hurt and anger. One of my tools is…you guessed it, reading affirmations!

Affirmations help us problem solve, clean house, raise our vibe and my personal favorite..magnetize to us that which we most desire!

But first we have to clean house. A tremendous way to begin is to acknowledge our every feeling and emotion so we can move through them and forward.

I-am-now-in-tune-withAs you read the affirmations on this blog, imagine the words sinking in and as they settle, all thoughts and memories that no longer serve your greater good are erased.

I Am Exactly Where I Need To Be

I choose to observe instead of obsess and trade scared for serene whenever possible.

Autumn at the beachMy affirmations posts and blog have received a wonderfully warm response and I am so grateful. I’ve been blessed with amazing support from clients as well as so many other people including friends, family, fb, twitter and Instagram peeps. My ‘social media’ has improved my life tremendously.

Though I may not be able to respond to every comment, I do appreciate and read them with much interest. Last week, someone remarked that some times reading the affirmations was difficult when she was in a down space.

This is easy to understand as saying, I am loved and I am peaceful can feel so inauthentic when we are rather stuck in more of a I am down so this feels dumb sort of space.

It is perfectly okay to be in a down space. It’s also just fine that you are not feeling a match to every word in an affirmation. What matters is that you feel. So instead of…

I-feel-empowered-by-my

…you could try

I-feel-empowered-by-my

You can always modify an affirmation you are drawn to but don’t resonate with 100% and/or you can create your own! When they feel good to read, they work best.

Affirmations are empowering because they override the sound of the broken record playing in the back of our mind that repeats…you can’t, you aren’t, you idiot. (Okay, that is one of my broken records but you get the point!) I’m all for free flowing in dance and art but since coming to grips with how much our thoughts and words create our world, I am far less free flowing with my thoughts and words and as a result, oddly enough..I’m much more easy-going in general.

I-am-now-willing-to-see

Want to feel energized and be inspired? Try staying mindful of what you are feeling, thinking, and saying. Just the process of trying (putting energy into it) has the power to add light to your life.

Affirmations help dull the sound of the broken record playing in the back of your head because saying them replaces the sound with the equivalent of lets say… a new hand-picked play list on Spotify! No more, you can’t, you aren’t, you idiot. Now it’s …I now believe in the power of my soul and in the power of self-acceptance! Staying mindful of what you say..and what you think will energize and inspire you.

Did you grow up learning to stay present and conscious of what you said? I have met few who did. My dad would often say, “Think before you talk.” But he said this mostly to my sister Randi because she had the guts to speak her mind. When I spouted off with something odd he would get an irritated look of surprise on his face. As a young medium with a big personality, I had a lot to say and at times, it wasn’t my own voice. Thinking back on it now, I wish could have said..It wasn’t me, some dead person made me say it!

I-walk-through-life-with

I am exactly where I need to be…

I am exactly where I need to be

My honesty inspires others.

I-respond-to-everyone 3

I am confident, strong, brave and beautiful.

I-now-believe-in-the POWER

I am safe, I am love, and I am wanted.

I-am-a-living-breathing blah blah

Take a moment morning, noon and night to read your favorite affirmations, and always, always be nice to yourself. It won’t be wasted time. The Universe will bring back to you what love you give away.

Hope you enjoy these affirmations! Thank you, thank you for reading my blog!

I am Growing up and Growing Soul

Love-after-all-is-the trueWhen I was 17 or 18, and discovering the varied aspects of the intuitive process, my best friend and I would always, and I do mean always ask ourselves and each other if a decision we had made ‘felt right’. We were like two hippies as my Dad would say, relentlessly checking out the vibe of our choices.

Gaining an understanding of how a decision felt was our way into our own soul. We were not completely conscious of it yet, but we wanted our soul to rule. This started a new level of dialogue with our respective higher soul self.

It took a lot of practice and we didn’t mind looking silly in front of each other. We were awash in our emotions. True hippie chicks growing up and growing soul.

Healthy-selfexpression isWhat kind of a relationship do you have with your self?
Are you self-approving? Do you self-express? What part of yourself do you most identify with exactly? Do these questions make you feel self-conscious?

When we are overly self-aware we become self-consciousness. But when we are aware of our self, we become introspective. We observe and inspect our own wishes and our own thoughts.

My hope is that you become more beautifully aware of self. This leads to a deeper connection with your soul. Affirmations have a way of tilling the field. 

I-am-in-a-peaceful-space

Upgrade Your Thoughts and Positively Electrify Your World

In elementary school, there’s much to learn about ABC and 123

Here comes the bus

And our education continues throughout our life.

Life is all about choices.

There’s so much to select from..because there is a true smorgasbord out there. We decide what foods to eat and when, what hair style appeals to us, where we wish to live, who our family of friends is and so on. And there’s a smorgasbord inside of us as well. We may not be able to choose our every thought but we certainly are able to select what we say.

We have choices about what we say to ourselves, about ourselves and to and about other people. Words have a great deal of power. In order to be an adept artisan in our own world, it would be wise to be aware of, and fashion our words carefully to create the kind of world we desire instead of dread. It’s as easy as ABC, 123!

We can upgrade our thoughts and positively electrify our world through the use of affirmations.

I-think-big-I-love-bigYou may recognize the names of these wonderful affirmation-related authors..Florence Sovel Shinn, Louise Hay, Marianne Williamson, Robert Collier, and Grace Speare, but did you know that Greek philosophers such as Aristotle and Epictetus spoke about the influence of the spoken word as well?

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” Aristotle

“First say to yourself what you would be; and then do what you have to do.” Epictetus

Louise L. Hay changed my life, or rather reading her book, “You Can Heal Your Life” did. (1984, Hay House)

She says much about the wisdom of approving of ourselves. “Remember, you have been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn’t worked. Try approving of yourself and see what happens.” She includes much in this book about how we create our own reality. “Every thought I think is creating my future”.

Night after night, I would curl up on my sofa and read her affirmations. This helped me turn my thoughts toward what I wanted instead of what I feared. The results were honestly mind-blowing.  

HAPPYI’ve included some great quotes about affirmations in this blog by some wonderful authors. You really can upgrade your thoughts and positively electrify your world through the use of affirmations.

Another of my absolute favorite authors is Florence Scovel Shinn. She was a pioneer in the world of affirmations. She said, “We cannot always control our thoughts, but we can control our words, and repetition impresses the subconscious, and we are then master of the situation.” She died in 1940 but left behind a number of phenomenal books such as “The Game of Life and How to Play It”, “Your Word Is Your Wand,” and “The Power of the Spoken Word.”

The-light-and-love (1)Positive affirmations are simply life affirming statements. Listen to the nagging voice in the back of your mind and you will hear a caboodle of negative affirmations. The message is typically critical and discrediting.

If we turn the thoughts we think and the words we say about ourselves in a positive direction we are affirming our good and fundamentally creating it.

A powerful affirmation is written in the present tense and is always positive.

I-am-now-in-tune-with“When you think something, you think in picture. You don’t think a thought in words. You think a picture that expresses your thought. Working with this picture will produce it into your experience.” Grace Speare

I-am-my-own-best-ally-I“It is always easier to believe than to deny. Our minds are naturally affirmative.”
John Burroughs

Splendid-synchronistic (2)

“Think and feel yourself there! To achieve any aim in life, you need to project the end-result. Think of the elation, the satisfaction, the joy! Carrying the ecstatic feeling will bring the desired goal into view.” Grace Speare

“Visualize this thing you want. See it, feel it, believe in it. Make your mental blueprint and begin.” Robert Collier

We can electrify our world through the use of affirmations!

The-brilliant-light-of (2)Affirmations are life affirming statements and they generate transformation!
