According to Mindtools.com the definition of affirmations is: Affirmations are positive statements that can help you to challenge self-sabotaging and negative thoughts.
I am safe. This statement is an affirmation.
These are scary times and I use affirmations to help keep my fear at bay and to be more positive.
Let me share with you the affirmations I am using right now.
I am healthy and safe.
My husband is healthy and safe.
My family is healthy and safe.
My blog family is healthy and safe.
Everyone I know is healthy and safe.
At this time the word safe resonates in me. Focusing on it makes me feel safe and secure.
I worry about myself and the people I know and love. Saying the above affirmations helps me to stay positive in a situation I cannot control and have no way of controlling even if I could.
Side note: I saw my mom the other night after work for a couple of minutes. It was outside. I was more than six feet away. She had her mouth covered. It was the first time I saw her in three weeks. It felt so good to see her. She’s doing good. She had her 2nd chemo a week ago. This the last time I will see her until this whole virus thing is over with. I miss her terribly.
Everything is working out better than I ever thought possible.
This is one of my favorite affirmations and I use it often. It makes me feel good. It makes me feel like I don’t have to worry about anything because the situation is in God’s hands and he’s taking care of it.
I love money and money loves me.
I live in an abundant universe.
Money comes to me easily and effortlessly and in expected and unexpected ways.
What my parents believed about money was their story. I am free to write my own.
No matter how awful the economy is I believe that I have to stay positive in a world of negativity. There is abundance all around me. There are a ton of businesses making money. There are people getting richer. This is what I focus on. I feel focusing on the positive helps everyone.
When I feel abundant the more I smile. The happier I am. The more I have to offer and give. It makes me a better person.
Don’t get me wrong. I feel horrible that people lost their jobs and livelihood. Businesses are closing. I pray for these people everyday, but I can’t live with a black cloud over my head because of this. I’m not helping anyone by doing this.
I still deal with money blocks that I believe came from my parents beliefs. It’s not good or bad. It just is and is something I need to get past. This affirmation helps to remind me it’s ok to leave their beliefs behind and write my own money story. I will be ok.
My life positively impacts the universe.
I hope I am doing this with my blog.
I am on a journey to realize my greatest potential.
Isn’t that a beautiful statement?
When I think of this statement I picture myself traveling from town to town in an orange VW bus talking to people who have forged their own path. Learning from them. Growning from them. Being inspired by them.
I believe in the positive. I believe it helps people. It breaks down walls. Heals hearts and people. Sheds light in darkness. Gives people something to believe in. Helps people see the good in others and the world we live in.
I love saying affirmations. They make me feel better. They give me hope. They lift my spirits.
There are different categories of affirmations I use. Life affirmations. Marriage affirmations. Healthy weight affirmations. Work affirmations. Money affirmations. Maybe I will share them in a post in the future.
My favorite author of affirmations and the person I first learned about affirmations from is Louise Hay. She was an amazing women and author. My favorite book is Heart Thoughts. Her books make my heart happy.
Did you know You Tube has affirmation videos? I recently found them and I am in love. Check them out. I listen to a different one every night before I go to sleep (except when my husband is home) and I love it. I love the “I AM” series. They say you are suppose to listen to the same video for 21 days so it gets into your mind, but I listen to whatever I feel I need that day. If I am stressed I will listen to one that helps relieve stress. If I am having money issues I will listen to a money video. I can’t say enough good things about them. I am amazed at how many videos there are and how many different topics. They help.
I don’t have a drawing today. I have a picture of what I want to draw in my head, but it hasn’t turned out the way I want it to on paper.
While I keep trying to draw it I repeat the affirmations below.
It is easy for me to put what is in my head onto paper.
I am creative.
It’s ok for me to show the world how creative I really am.
Happy Easter everyone. I love you all. Stay safe and have a great day!
