Girlosophy: A Soul Survival Kit, by Anthea Paul was a LIFE-CHANGING book for me. I bought this book when I was 14 years old, let a girl borrow it (who never returned it), forgot about it, rediscovered it at age 20, ordered it online, and fell in love with it all over again. *deep breath*
This book encourages all young women, from all walks of life, to find their individual truth. Talk about empowerment! The contents of the book are:
Throughout this blog, I will be sharing affirmations, words of encouragement, and other beautiful quotes from this book. Today, I will share the affirmation of ALL affirmations….at least, in my opinion. I memorized this all-encompassing mantra and recited it every night before bed, as a teenager. In light of my recent “awakeness”, I have started doing it again. Enjoy:
I love and trust myself in every way and I accept myself without judging because I am part of the Universe, created of and by the infinite being.
I can manifest all of my dreams and desires because I have a personal connection to the infinite intelligence and I am at one with this power.
It is possible for me to exceed my goals because beauty, power, and harmony abound in my heart and in my mind.
I am able to love, forgive and release everything in the past.
I am able to attract as many positive experiences as I want and need and recognize this as part of my individual destiny.
I believe in the unlimited peace and love which, as a child of the Universe, is my birthright.
– Anthea Paul
