My personal mantra for the past two years has been, "I am safe. I am loved. I am listening." Let me break it down and explain how it has been helpful for my growth and awareness practice. I have found the best time to recite and hold this manta in my mind is while on a walk in nature. Sometimes with a chihuahua.
"I am safe."
Feeling safe is the first step to being able to slow down and be in the present moment. Ask, am I in danger at this moment? if the feeling of safety is elusive. Start to feel safe.
"I am loved."
Why not? Feeling loved is healing and nurturing. Your source of the love can be a higher power, past memories, a current significant other, general feeling of human connection, pet, or the great universal consciousness of love.
"I am listening."
Listening is the best way to learn and gather information to assist your next step. To listen requires effort and attention. It is easier to listen when feeling safe and loved.
This mantra, "I am safe. I am loved. I am listening." is helpful to me even today. Enjoy.
