What Do You Have Power to Change?

new dayI’m going to share something you may or may not believe yet.

You’ll be able to identify your level of belief just by the way you feel when you read this statement:

You have the power to change your experience with anything (and I mean ANYTHING) in your life that is not going the way you want it to.

What do you think? Do you accept that idea? Or do you come up reasons or excuses why it couldn’t be true for you?

Just consider the possibility that it IS true. What would you want to change today? How would you want to heal and improve? Which relationships would you strengthen?

How Do You Exercise That Power… and Get the Change You Want?

You can’t force change. You need to allow it. And a key to allowing is accountability. When we take accountability for every aspect of our life we are in the most powerful position to allow change to occur.

Don’t worry if you feel like you should already have thought of that. Even people who are consciously creating their lives need a good reminder now and then.

Use these affirmations this week with the intention to BE more accountable and to allow more change in your life. Put your hand over your heart and say them out loud. Or choose one that you especially love and post it in a place where you will see it.

Use these every day this week. And come back to them as often as you need:

  • I am ready, willing and able to look, see, and tell the truth.
  • I am ready and willing to assume responsibility for my life NOW.
  • I love and accept myself.
  • I trust the choices I make.
  • I trust that others have their own answers for their lives.
  • I choose to live and I accept love, help, and healing.
  • I am worthy of having what I want, my needs matter.
  • I do my best and my best is good enough.

These affirmations address the core issues that most people struggle with at a deeper level of their being. Putting a daily focus on these truths will shift your core vibration which allows greater shifts in your life.

You DO have the power to change anything in your life. Whether the actual event changes or you change your response and perception, both create a new experience. And the first big step to making use of that power is owning it. Be accountable first, and change will follow.

I would love to hear your thoughts, stories, and questions. Please leave a comment. Share your own affirmation to be accountable for your life today!

God Bless You,
Carol Tuttle

Tell Us What You Think

    Very thought provoking! Thank you for this. Interesting how you said this will show you your level of belief. I realized I don’t believe I can change other people or have the power to totally change my life. For example, my marriage. But, I’m totally intrigued with the idea of playing the ‘what if’ game! That thought really struck home, what if I could change everything. So, for my first step I am going to play that game today! I am going to let my mind expand and really think about it and write it down! How fun it will be! 🙂 Thank you for this!

    I’m sorry but I think this can be a damaging idea. Yes, we can change many things. Yes, we should change many things. Yes, we need to look at the possibility that we can change some things that we thought we couldn’t, but any wise experienced person, any legitimate counselor and even AA will tell you that there are things we can’t change and that we need the wisdom to “know the difference.” One of the most painful days in my life was listening to a well-meaning person explain to me how no one could hurt me unless I gave them permission. Well, considering what I was going through at the time, my only response (in my own head) was that evidently I had given permission by giving my heart to someone. It is not good counsel to tell people that they can avoid all pain in life or that they can solve all problems, or change anything they want to change.

    We need courage and skills to change things that we can change, but don’t be out there making false promises. Those really hurt people who are stuck in hard situations.

    Help them figure out what things CAN be changed, what ARE their options and help them deal with reality, instead of setting them up to be slapped down.

    Love you guys, so many good ideas on your site, but this one needs to me modified to really serve people well.

      Dear Anita-

      Thanks for taking the time to read my blog and post a comment. It seems that you fall into the group that doesn’t want to believe this, which I said there would be. This world does not need more people doubting and settling for pain and mediocrity! What this world needs more than anything is a big dose of faith and possibility, and a big shot of hope and inspiration. Accepting “what is” is keeping a lot of people in pain and suffering. I stand for the power we have to change our lives I hope you’ll stand for that too someday. I encourage you to re-read the post. And I also believe we can only be hurt by others if we believe they can hurt us. Most of us believe that others can hurt us and until we take that power back we will be hurt!

    Carol, the first affirmation is really the FIRST affirmation.
    I am FIRST Ready; then Willing; then Able to Look, then See and then Tell the truth.
    I have found being “able to look” very difficult. Thank you for including it in this affirmation. I’m sure it will facilitate easier being “able to look”.
    Many many thanks for the work you are offering

    These are nice. Though a bit fluffy when you are up to your ass in alligators. Then an affirmation like “Enough Already!” would be good. (with the addendum vibe attached – Here’s what i really want )
    You can tell i’m having an alligator day 🙂

    I believe that we can change anything we want it to be. Does that mean that change has to be comfortable? Change is not always comfortable for me but I know things change and one day that change does feel comfortable. Does that sound accurate? Also, when you have made a plan in your life to go a certian way, and it doesn’t go that way is it your belief that is affecting that change of pathways or that better things are coming and just let those changes happon?
