Majo Affirmative Poetry

There are at least four reasons for learning to create and offer Affirmative Poetry:

  1. Maybe the greatest source of human pain is not knowing who we really are.
  2. The most powerful way to be woken up from the sleep of not knowing who we really are is to have someone in front of us reflecting the full truth of how beautiful we are.
  3. Most of us are good at blowing off affirmations – even really strong ones.  They will have more chance of really landing – of having a powerful impact – if they come in some creative package: dance, song, drama, poetry/poetic expression, etc.

  4. In the process of creating affirmative poetry/poetic expression for others, inevitably the positivity of that act attaches to us. It may actually be impossible, as my therapist used to say, to give a genuine affirmation to someone else that is not also true about us.
