The queen of positivity and self love, Miranda Kerr’s long awaited follow up book to her bestselling first book, Treasure Yourself, which by the way has sold over 100,000 copies since it was published in December 2010 is finally here,  Empower Yourself, Daily Affirmations to Reclaim Your Power.

I wish to share the techniques that I have found helpful to increase my confidence and personal power with you, so that you can use them in your own life. – Miranda Kerr

Miranda’s latest book continues to explore similar themes around self love and self empowerment. She provides insight into what she believes it means for young, modern women to be empowered in all areas of their life.  For Miranda, one of the most powerful tools to facilitate change, both in her own life, and in the lives of others, is the use of positive affirmations. In her book, she has written over 220 personal affirmations that you can use to help you bring about positive change in your life.


Let me step back here and tell you my story around using affirmations in my life although I call them intentions instead of affirmations, but there’s no difference.  A couple of years ago, I had the luxury of having breakfast with Miranda and her Mum and my friend Therese and it was at that table that I heard myself saying again, “I used to be so healthy and so positive and happy about my life …” and I realised in that moment that only I could bring about that change, I had forgotten that I set the tone for me life and I kid you not I have spent the past two years doing just that and it’s been an incredible healing journey. Through the setting of intentions on how I wanted to rebuild my life were a core component to bring about that change and I took the actions necessary to do so.  And I can happily say I live my life intentionally from the heart every day. I live it from a place of joy, love and gratitude and I nourish my mind body and soul with all that is good for me. I will let you in on a little secret, it takes consistent daily practice, and you have to follow through with actions, but if I can do it, you can too.

So this is why I’m advocating Miranda’s book, it’s the perfect little bedside table book that you can pick up start and end your day with a beautiful positive affirmation to help you transform your life into a joyful happy life that bursts at the seams with goodness. We really have no idea how powerful our minds are but you will once you start seeing the changes that you bring in through setting intentions on how you want to live your life and that includes who is in your life.

Miranda has kindly shared some exclusive affirmations to help get you started:

When you Empower Yourself, you…

LIVE FEARLESSLY: You live, love and play without fear. You don’t want to hold back, then reflect on your life years later and wish you’d lived in a certain way but didn’t, because you were too afraid.

Empowering Affirmation: I conduct my life fearlessly and proactively.

When you Empower Yourself, you…

ATTEND TO YOUR STUDIES WITH INTEGRITY: No matter what type or stage of schooling you’re involved in, you are honest when it comes to taking tests and writing research papers. You treat other students and teachers with respect.

Empowering Affirmation: I conduct myself honourably in all scholastic situations.

When you Empower Yourself, you…

RISE ABOVE PETTINESS:  You are a substantial person with a strong character and firmly-held beliefs. When others are acting petty and childish around you, you do not stoop to their level. You rise above it and move forward.

Empowering Affirmation: I feel so much better when I rise above pettiness.

When you Empower Yourself, you…

LISTEN TO YOUR HEART: When making decisions about your love life, you do what your heart tells you. You don’t do what you think you ‘should’ do or what others tell you to do… you do what truly feels right to you.

Empowering Affirmation: I listen with love to my heart’s messages.

Empower Yourself is presented in cloth binding, printed in full colour throughout and includes recent photos from Miranda’s personal collection.  I truly can guarantee there will be plenty of affirmations that will resonate and help move you forward and here’s something that I do; just open the book at a page and use that as your affirmation for the day, our paths are perfect and it will be the message you need for the day.
