An Affirmation for Feeling Good

I give myself permission to feel good.

Last weekend I heard Gabby Bernstein speak. I came across Gabby’s books at a time in my life when I had hit rock bottom—ended a long term relationship, left my apartment, moved out of NYC, was depressed, and lost.

She listed this affirmation as an important step in her “Manifestation Jumpstart” workshop. Gabby reminded me that when we feel good, we vibrate with a certain energy and in turn, attract miraculous things/situations/people into our life. By letting go of unworthiness, we release resistance to abundance.

There are many root causes behind depression, but I believe one of the feelings that can keep a person stuck in depression is a feeling of guilt—a belief that we are so bad or have done something so terrible that we deserve to feel like crap.

Even if you are going through a dark time, pockets of joy are still available and possible! When you come across one, cherish that moment.

Write this affirmation on a piece of paper, and put it somewhere you will see it everyday. (Seriously, everyday.)

Pave the way for feeling good by first giving yourself permission to feel good.

No matter what has happened in the past, you are unconditionally loved, unconditionally accepted, and unconditionally forgiven.
