One of the best and easiest ways to express your independence is by learning to love and accept yourself more and to "get" that you have the power to manifest any kind of life you want. That is such a powerful concept.

Get started by trying out some uplifting affirmations. These will help you shift your thinking from where you are now to a much stronger and more powerful and joyful perspective. I've given you some below to get started with. They cover self-love as well as financial independence. Pick and choose 10 from this list to use every day for this whole month and then check back in with where you are and enjoy the shift that you made. It's best to say the affirmations out loud and with feeling.

Get started with 10 (or more) of the following affirmations:
