Power of Affirmations

Affirmations

Every thought you think and every word you say is an affirmation. All of our self- talk, our internal dialogue is a stream of affirmations. You’re affirming and creating your life experiences with every word and thought. A lot of what we normally say and think is quite negative and doesn’t create good experiences for us. We have to retrain our thinking and speaking into positive patterns if we want to change our lives. An affirmation is a beginning point on the path to change.  Our subconscious uses the behavior patterns we have learned to automatically respond and react to many everyday events in our life.

The next step is to take each negative statement and turn it around into a positive affirmation. Once this is done, add this affirmation: ALL MY POSITIVE AFFIRMATIONS COME TRUE FOR ME!

Doing affirmations is consciously choosing to think certain thoughts that will create positive results in the future. They allow you to begin changing your thinking. When you choose to say “I am very wealthy,” you may actually have very little money at the present, but what you’re doing is planting a seed for future prosperity. Each time you repeat this statement, you’re reaffirming the seed you’ve planted in the atmosphere of your mind. That’s why you want it to be a happy atmosphere.  If you think about it, seeds and plants grow quicker in rich earth.

Once you start changing your thinking process, everything in your life will start to change.  Stop thinking about your lack or what you don’t have because that will only attract more lack into your life.  Replace negative affirmations with positive ones.  “I choose to make it to work on time today” instead of “I don’t want to be late today.” My favorite is “Everything always works out for me.”  Start practicing this new way of thinking and see what happens in your life.

Meditation to Alleviate Stress

 Meditation for Stress Relief

There are so many health issues today and the biggest culprit is stress.  Stress is the body’s reaction to harmful situations–whether they are real or perceived.  When you feel threatened, a chemical reaction occurs in your body that allows you to act in a way to prevent injury. This reaction is known as “fight-or-flight,” or the stress response. Our bodies are designed to handle small doses of stress. But, we are not equipped to handle long-term, chronic stress without ill consequences.

The results of long-term stress can lead to cardiovascular disease, eating disorders and mental health problems.  So,  reducing your stress levels can not only make you feel better right now but may also protect your health long-term.

According to Natural News, the hormone cortisol, produced when the body is under stress, actually blocks the absorption of vitamin D. So, while you may be getting plenty of sunshine, all of that vitamin D could be going to waste.

My suggestion is learning to relax.  Learning meditation is one of the most powerful ways to reduce stress.  There are many different ways to meditate and options to help you get into that state of mind. Here is one you may find helpful from Deepak Chopra.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kWe501bBel8
