Affirmations are a brilliant way to stay sane during those overwhelming days when you feel you could go under.
There is a secret though, which is key to success. It's really simple and obvious once you know, however until you do, it can just be empty words and absolutely nothing happens. The secret to affirmations working are really feeling them as you say them. So taking that extra moment instead of just mindlessly repeating them. When you say 'All's Well' breathe into it, feel it and experience it in that moment.
If I find overwhelment lapping at my edges this is what I say "I can do any of these things when I am not trying to do all of them, and I can do all of these things when I do one of them." The more we bring affirmations into our daily lives the easier life will become, as our reactions to situations can be taken from that still place.
Another affirmation I love and use on a daily basis at the moment is "I am a Warrior". This has been since we finished a Wellbeing Talk on worry, stress and anxiety in Moraira Spain with the Warrior yoga pose. In that instance we were all Warriors not worriers. The energy was quite amazing and the change in everyone was tangible.
I have been asked to write up the affirmations that I have used over the years and some are from many years ago, so am unsure whether they have come from myself or another or from the Louise Hay book “Heal yourself” or the 'Course of Miracles'. So here they are and thank you to Louise Hay et al.
Just see what resonates and use it in your daily life as a little mantra:
