This is especially powerful when applied to our physical bodies.
"The words you speak form the house you live in."
How often do we accept the belief of aging, growing older, accompanied by declining health, susceptiblility to disease and restrictions, wrinkles, grey hair, etc. . . There is a huge industry dedicated to fostering a belief that getting older also comes with undesirable physical changes remedied only by something outside of yourself, basically, purchasing their product. Why do you think there are so many products availiable? Because they don't work or they work for a limited time for as long as you believe they are beneficial (a pseudo placebo effect).
Marketing campaigns are very believable with paid actors sharing their undesirable experiences of aging but finding relief in this product and changing their life for the better. It's big money and it's very convincing. It's a two fold lie: 1- As you age your health diminishes. 2- You need something outside of yourself to remedy the aging process.
You can choose if either is something you want to believe, if you choose to (free will), you are using the "I AM" statement affirming what you have been told to believe. I AM getting old and diminishing in health and vitality. I AM not a sovereign being capable of thinking for myself and creating what I want.
Now, turn those I AM statements into sovereign statements, something you are in control of, reclaiming your ability to think and declare for yourself what you want. Instead, say I AM divine health, happiness and vitality are always flowing in my life. I AM divinely guided to all good and abundance.
In his book, THE POWER OF YOUR SUBCONSCIOUS MIND, Dr. Joseph Murphy believes he brought healing to himself through the I AM statements. Diagnosed with tuberculosis, he was scheduled to undergo immediate surgery. He wanted to be healed, he intended to be healed, and so delayed the surgery for 30 days all the while declaring and affirming within himself what he wanted. He changed his inside thoughts, his I AM statements to himself and, in turn, the outside had no choice but to reflect the healing he desired. His doctor was dually amazed at the miraculous healing. Dr. Joseph Murphy intended to be healed and created a mindfulness focused only on what he wanted. The mind is a powerful tool.
When you set an intention, the Universe conspires to make it happen, regardless if it is good or bad. The Universe/God never says no, "Ask and it is given". So it is wise that you think carefully about the words you speak to yourself and to others.
