Make a Positive Difference in Someone’s Life

Affirmations: (Affirmations are meant to be written and spoken many times everyday.  See below)
Life is for giving and I AM The Gift.
Giving is my joy.
Giving fills me up.
Giving is the natural way to Love.
Giving Love is loving me.

Reach out and touch someone’s life with listening, caring and sharing.
You will never be the same.
When you give your time, resources and love to benefit someone else, you will be blessed.
Unconditional Love is the awakening that comes from doing good, simply for the sake of doing Good.

From early childhood, I was invited to give.
My giving, helping, listening and loving we received with appreciation.
I learned to fully appreciate myself for being truly helpful.
I experienced the natural joy of giving and contributing.

“What can I do?” became my inner mantra.
“Where can I serve?” is my calling.
How can I be truly helpful?” is the inner guidance for my life.
And in this I find purpose, direction, focus and great joy.

Help your parents.
Play with your children.
Listen to your elders.
Be supportive of your mate.

Take time to help strangers.
Volunteer at a local non profit org.
Give resources to your church or favorite charity.
Help in a school classroom.

Giving is natural when we are not denied or dismissed for our gifts.
Giving comes easily when we have received what we need.
Giving is trusting there will always be more when we share what we have.
Giving is allowing all we have to freely flow out to others with grace.

If everyone shared what we have, each one would have enough.
If you gave your extra time to those who need more, there would be no distress.
If we all shared resources without mistaken limitation, there would be no lack.
When we remember to love ourselves unconditionally, we trust in loving others fully.

When you open your heart, you will see all kinds of effortless natural giving.
Give money to the places that use resources to serve others with respect.
Give time to listen, play, pray and say only positive and inspiring words.
Give love to those who are lacking in love and support by forgiving mistakes and  loving them anyway.

I have volunteered as early as I can remember.
To help my mother care for my brother, preparing meals when Mom was unable, keeping my room clean,
To take care of neighbors’ children, in the classroom when teacher needed help, with kids who were alone. To visit elders in senior homes, hospitalized kids, singing for shut-ins, sitting and cheer up the lonely.
To give money to causes that meant something, AFS exchange student ambassador for peace.
To help during elections, clean up inner city housing, work in mental hospitals, and city hospitals.
To do jobs no one else wanted, move through my own fears, be kind to strangers, forgive any judgments.
To never turn anyone away who asked for help and be present in the middle of the night for urgent calls.
To drive an hour at 3:30AM to care for my granddaughter every morning before school for several  years.
To share my time, talents and treasures freely with others, trusting there will be more when needed.

My life is rich in every way, because I give the Love I have in every form needed.
I know life works when you give with joy and gratitude, because it does.
Loving you in giving the gift of You, 
Betty Lue

How to Use Affirmations:
Affirmations are used to clear unconscious programming that tends to guide our thoughts, feelings and behavior.
Writing, speaking and hearing us say the affirmation aloud clears the false beliefs through our sense of sight, sound and touch.  
It is essential that we keep writing and saying the affirmations until there is no longer resistance to the limiting beliefs.  
Affirmations are not to be used to develop a new belief, but only useful to clear false limiting programs.  
Once there is quict, clarity, no resistance, we are complete.

My favorite way to do affirmations is to divide the lined page down the middle.  
The affirmation is written on the left side and your mind chatter or contradictory thought is written on the right side.
Then cross off the negative.  
Write the affirmation again on the left and listen to your mind chatter and write on the right.
 Cross the mind chatter off.  
Continue writing the affirmation 20 times and listen for the resistant thought after each one.
I would do it all by hand, so I could cross it off with my pen!!  
20 times daily for 14 days or until there is no resistance.
Do no more than three different affirmations at a time.
Things may change dramatically, so be prepared to notice big difference.
Life works when we are willing to do the work.  
Ask me for help if you have trouble finding the affirmations that are most effective for you.
 Always choose an affirmation that you resist, because it will help clear away what is blocking your Good.
They will always feel like a lie in the beginning and you may find great resistance to doing them!!

Useful suggestions for applying the technique of Autosuggestion to the Affirmations
Write each affirmation 10 to 20 times. 
Writing is an extremely powerful technique of autosuggestion.
 Work with one or more every day. Good times are just before sleeping, before starting the day and especially whenever you feel at effect. 
They can also be recorded on cassette tape and played back to yourself. 
The best way to do that is by recording each affirmation 5 or 10 times so that you have time to think about them when they are playing.
Make a list of the affirmations that are most meaningful to you.
Put specific names and situations into the affirmations.
Play with the vocabulary in the affirmation--make it personal and meaningful to  yourself.
Say the affirmations to yourself in the first, second and third persons as follows: 
I,  (name), now like myself.  You, (name), now like yourself.   Name, now likes him/herself.
 Feel free to invent new ones.
 Continue working with them daily until they become totally integrated into your consciousness.
To dissolve negative mental patterns and free maximum aliveness in your consciousness, write each affirmation in order 10 or 20 times. 
Note the ones that are most meaningful or produce the greatest charge. 
Continue working with these until they go flat. 

When they go flat, you are at total cause and master of the results implied by the affirmations.
