Affirmations are positive thought forms which we create to change old habits or beliefs. How often have you heard “You did this wrong” or “You did that wrong.” Perhaps you have even said to yourself, “I am not good enough to get that job.” “I just can’t get the hang of it, because I just don’t understand.” Someone says to you that “You are always sick,” and you come back, “I am a very unhealthy person.”
These are just a few of the negative thoughts we have accumulated over our life times. They will and do affect our health and well being. Perhaps it is time to take a positive stand and put the positive spin to our lives. Here is how you can do this. First look into the mirror and tell yourself “I am not worth anything.” If this doesn’t apply to you, what phrase have you heard or felt so much that it is a part of you? When you look in the mirror what do you see and how do you feel? You may feel tired and look depressed, bags under the eyes or even pale.
Now create a positive affirmation. “I am a very worthy person, all things come to me because of it.”
Again, look into the mirror. What do you see? Are you the same person you saw before? Do you see a difference in your appearance? Now as you look into the mirror, visualize things coming to you because you are worthy. Look into the mirror again. Now how do you look and feel? Here is a little secret. You deserve to be worthy to obtain whatever affirmation you state.
Everyday, several times a day, say that positive affirmation to yourself. Tape it to your mirror, your car’s dashboard, your work station. Wherever you spend the most time, have that affirmation handy.
Here are a few areas of life that affirmations will be needed:
Health, Fears and Phobias, Criticism, Self Forgiveness, Money, Friends, Self Esteem, Judgement (self or other), Addictions, Work Relations, Prosperity and Abundance, Love and Relationships.
And here are a few examples:
“I am afraid to be angry” — “I am not afraid to be angry”
“My body is weak and unhealthy” — “My body is strong and healthy”
“I Just can’t do anything right” — “Everything I do is perfectly OK”
Try these or create your own and try them everyday for a month and see how you feel.
