The Power of Positive Affirmations with Brianna Greenspan
Meet Brianna Greenspan
Brianna Greenspan has been using the power of positive affirmations for over a decade to overcome the physical challenges that being born with a chronic invisible illness brings about. Defying the logic of doctors and the temptation to be a victim, Brianna has dedicated her life to healing herself while empowering others to take ownership over their own physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual health. Brianna is the Co-Author of the bestselling book, The Miracle Morning: Art of Affirmations, A Positive Affirmations Coloring Book designed to combine affirmations with mindful artistry. “Visualize the success you are looking to create and use the affirmations within this book as inspiration along your journey.” Brianna Greenspan is also a fierce chronic illness advocate, mentor for teens and young adults with chronic illnesses, and Genetics Consultant at Gene By Gene, a genetic testing company based in Houston, Texas.
Brianna is a very dear friend and one of the most giving and kind woman leaders I know. She has stepped forward this year in a big way moderating a daily Miracle Morning in the new app, Clubhouse, and has made this work available to thousands of children, schools, and individuals in need. We had a genuine and raw conversation about why it’s crucial to stop hiding and unmuting yourself so that you can shine brighter and make a more significant difference. We talked about the power of positive affirmations and their more profound meaning and how changing her own positive affirmations helped her heal and thrive with a devastating chronic illness. Read on to learn how you can step into your greatest power and light.
The Power of Positive Affirmations
Since the first grade, Brianna Greenspan had muted herself when dealing with the repercussions of having a chronic illness with awful side effects like throwing up often and being in a wheelchair. She never felt like she fit in and decided to mute her voice and her whole self until she realized that this impacted her whole body healing and ability to make a change in the world. She explains that affirmations aren’t just what you tell yourself; they are also the labels others give you that you then take on as your own truth. When you say “I am,” you are vocalizing to the world the labels put on your life. For example, Brianna was saying, “I am sick,” because that’s what Doctors told her, yet that perpetuated her belief in her sickness versus her ability to heal. Observe what you say to yourself. Positive affirmations are everywhere and affirm to the Universe what you are. You will create new neural pathways and will start believing and being the affirmation of “I am strong,” “I am capable,” and “I am courageous.” Brianna Greenspan took a hard look at what she was saying to herself and realized she could decide how to define her life and use words that were for her highest good. Instead of saying the phrases “I can’t, I won’t, I’ll never,” which were ingrained in her head, she now says to herself, “I can, I will, I am.”
Stop Hiding Yourself
It can feel very uncomfortable for many of us who are used to being in a supportive background role, but if you feel called to step forward, it means there’s more for you to do and say. What helped Brianna do this was visualizing herself as a girl who loves to step forward and come out of hiding. The message came up for her, ‘How can you expect others to unmute themself if you are muting yourself?’ This is where powerful rituals like visualization or positive affirmations can help to change your behavior. The Miracle Morning: Art of Affirmations is a great and fun way to start shifting your beliefs.
Commit to Doing Good In All Ways You Can
Start listening to your inner wisdom and intuition and follow that guidance to do more good in your life and that of others. I love what Brianna said before we ended our conversation when I asked about her ‘heart flare’, a term I use to depict a deep heart’s desire to share something not yet spoken. She said, “I try to do the good I can, in all the ways I can, as often as I can, in every way I can, each and every day.” The world needs us to shine brighter now, more than ever. I hope this inspires you, as it has inspired me, to truly be as kind and good to myself, the world, and to as many as others as possible.
Brianna Greenspan reminds us that positive affirmations are out in the world waiting to be spoken. That finding these positive affirmations and bringing them into your existence helps you become powerful and capable. Don’t forget to look for her book, The Miracle Morning: Art of Affirmations, A Positive Affirmations Coloring Book.
