Sooo it’s April?!?! How did that happen so quickly?! Starting spring off with a new series that I am SO excited about!!! Going to start sharing “Monthly Mantras” on here that you can use as a part of your morning routine. I first discovered mantras and affirmations in college when I read Miranda Kerr’s book, Treasure Yourself. The book is really about self care and having good thoughts — in it Miranda shares her favorite affirmations. I read this at the peak of Victoria’s Secret when VS angels were EV-ER-Y-THING. Remember the days of watching the fashion show as if it were the super bowl? Miranda was one of my favorites so I literally just wanted to do whatever she did lol – and started using her affirmations. I LOVED IT. And since they have remained a part of my routine and I consider using affirmations/mantras as a very powerful tool that anyone can use.
I wanted to somehow have these affirmations also be a part of your mornings. We are going to start sending out the monthly mantras out with dae orders placed on daehair.com – these will go out with all orders! They are waterproof and tear proof cards that you can set in your shower or hang on your shower wall (the water droplets make it stick right on!)
This month’s mantra is “I am surrounded by beauty and abundance” .. there are a lot of reasons why I wanted to start with this one! Having an abundance mindset will help you attract beauty, love, success, and more. There are a lot of ways you can shift your mindset to have an abundance mindset.. Here are some of those ways:
- TIME: I first learned about an abundance mindset when listening to a podcast years ago. In the podcast he talked about how we wake up in the morning and are usually immediately in a rush “I am late!” “I don’t have enough time!” .. and he shared how having an abundance mindset can completely change how much you can get done and ENJOY getting done when you simply shift to saying “I have plenty of time.”
- SUCCESS: One shift that has especially helped me is not feeling threatened by competitors in your space — feeling threatened by competition or by other’s success is a scarcity mindset. Shifting to an abundance mindset would be to recognize that there is plenty of room for everyone at the top – we can ALL succeed! Collaboration > Competition.
- MONEY: It is so easy to feel overwhelmed by money – the need to make it, consumption, spending too much, not having enough, etc. Try instead of saying “I don’t have enough money”, saying “the money will come” and really believing that.
- LEARNING: This is one I am always talking to my kids about because so often they use a scarcity mindset and say “I don’t know how to do this!” (okay I do too often and catch myself ha) but I have been trying to teach them (and remind myself!) to instead say “I am determined to learn how to do this” .. it is okay to not know everything but we are all capable of at least trying to learn!
There are so many ways to shift to an abundance mindset throughout your day so I hope that with these mantra print outs you can start to recognize situations when that shift can completely change how you react to situations and in the long run will attract so much more positivity and new opportunities for you. I truly believe that with a higher vibration you will attract beauty and love and success.
HAVE A GREAT DAE!
