I AM Artist Nichole Rae.
This affirmation has been part of my daily practice for the last 5 years. I have been practicing speaking out these five words so I can be here with you, at the beginning. This led me to step into being a guide and a teacher. I AM here to guide you into a daily practice and begin with you. The Art Of Daily Practice is the foundation that has carried me into the desires of my heart and has given me the courage to cultivate my own vision. Over the years I have been practicing to heal what was heavy within. To heal body pain and negative self talk. To heal my own shadow I was standing in. What I didn’t know is that the practicing would become the answer to the questions and the calling within.
The Art Of Daily Practice was the outcome of years of meeting blank journal pages, A Course Of Miracles Book, creative supplies and faith-filled cups of coffee every morning. Day after day I practiced. I practiced creating space of what was heavy, what ached and hurt. I practiced filling the space with the truth and would ask for guidance each step of the way. There were lots of tears and miracles. I remember the “nudges” along the way that led me to keep practicing and these practices led me here to practice with you. I was taking leaps. I was saying “yes” to what most scared me. I was coming home to me. Each line I journaled, each affirmation I spoke out loud was creating what I most needed.
Over the years of traveling 108 miles within through I AM affirmations has led me to invite you to practice with me. Nothing more. Nothing less.
I will meet you where you are.
I invite you to Practice With Me.
