How Can Positive Affirmations Help You?
When I moved from Texas to New York many years ago, one of the things I noticed about people there was how they responded to the question “How are you?”
The typical response in New York was “Not bad”.
In Texas I was accustomed to getting the response “Fine.”
What strikes you most about the difference in those responses?
Did you notice that in the first example, the focus is on negative words, and in the second example, the response is a positive word?
Do you know what Mother Teresa said regarding an invitation to an anti-war demonstration?
She said she would not attend an anti-war demonstration, but that if you invited her to a peace rally, she would go.
So, what does that illustrate?
It shows that Mother Teresa focused on the positive. She would not go to an event that was against something negative, but she would go to an event for something positive.
Her answer is in line with the Laws of Attraction… What you think or talk about comes to you. You attract what you focus on.
How can you apply that to yourself?
Why not create some positive affirmations to answer the questions that follow?
I wrote some example answers to give you a head start, but you should give an answer that most speaks from your heart’s desire. What do you want to attract? Beginning your affirmations with “I am” is very powerful.
How would you like your health to be?
I am healthy and full of energy. (Not: I am free of pain. Don’t mention pain or other things you don’t want!)
What about your wealth? What would you like to be earning?
I am earning net profits of_____________per month.
How would you like your emotional state to be?
I am happy and serene. (not: I am anxiety-free)
Now consider these lyrics I wrote for the song, ’The Gift of the Present’:
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
May I always be thankful
for the gift given to me
every moment of my life,
every breath I breathe.
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~
What are you thankful for?
I am thankful that I have arms and legs. I am thankful that I am loved.
Who are you appreciating? (family, friends, teachers, spiritual guides, divine beings)
I am appreciating___________.
What kind of attitude do you want to have?
I am appreciating what life teaches me.
I am important. I make a difference in other people’s lives.
OK. That should be enough to get you started.
