Positive Affirmations

How's life and stuff? Good... good. Well, I wanted to take a moment to talk about a subject that is near and dear to me.... affirmations. It's no secret that I struggle with self esteem, feeling good enough and in general loving myself. Hello? That's why I have a weight problem. Protecting myself much? And since I am still unable to afford insurance at the moment going to speak to a qualified person is out of my budget. So I turned to the person I have been turning to for years now, Louise Hay. If you are not familiar with this amazing woman please check her out.

I have usually "done" affirmations willy nilly in the past. However this time my discipline has been more focused. I am actually doing the mirror work that is required when you first start. Mirror work is when you sit in front of a mirror or hold one up to your face and speak the positive affirmations that you want to be true in your life....even if you don't believe it. There is something very powerful about looking into your own eyes and telling yourself that you love you just as you are. You do feel silly and fake at first but once you really dig deep that's when the emotions come up and the powerful changes begin to occur. Man, I should do commercials for this lady.. I sound like a salesman. ;)

So that's what I have been doing. You know what the cool thing is? I have started saying them all throughout the day. Whenever I catch myself thinking something negative I follow the thought up with a positive affirmation. The subjects may not even be related but that's okay as long as I am thinking something that puts me in a more positive frame of mind. Give it a try, see if it works for you.

I am willing to change
I am loving and lovable and I find love everywhere
I am one with the power that created me and this power has given me the power to create my own circumstances
I listen with love to my bodies messages

I love and approve of myself
I love and approve of myself
I love and approve of myself......
