I am currently reading some books for my Masters thesis, one of them is The Science of Self Affirmation by Steven Handel . I really loved the suggested list of self affirmation so wanted to share with my blog readers. For those whom are new to affirmations, affirmations can be written and posted on dream vision boards or said out loud. The key is to make it a conscious habit. All you need is at least 5 minutes of your day.
This is a list of suggested self-affirmations. Try to use these as inspiration to come up with self-affirmations of your own. Or if you are really having trouble creating your own, then feel free to use some of these for now.
I hope after reading and using these 100 affirmations for self improvement you have a sense of finding your power within you. Namaste!
This week has me thinking and during some reading I came across this gem of writing letters. However, it was not what you think. You are not writing the letter to a person, rather that you are receiving a letter from someone else. This is suppose to help with role playing on your well being. As we tend to have a hard time expressing gratitude authentic within ourselves. So it's kinda like stepping outside of the box, to look within.
I thought I would share the role play of "I wish you well" with my readers. I want you to get in touch with your authentic self.
WRITE A LETTER: “I wish you well”. Imagine you receive a letter from someone (who is still alive or who has passed away) and who wishes you well.
Let your choice of the person you imagine as ‘the writer’ of the letter spontaneously arise.
Write this letter.
Use about 25 min to write the letter.
Use about 5 min to write about what you experienced when working with this exercise.
You can decide to read the letter aloud to someone or you can post it on this website.
Save the letter anyway and reread the letter regularly. Focus on the joy.
Positive Conditioned Reflex Living- that is the technical name for hey lets turn that big pile of shitty negativity into something positive! It is about life's series of responses of our state of mind to our experiences, from what maybe major life changing to the small. Its about our reactions to the positives and the negatives. Are we going to allow to choose those negatives to make us depressed and set ourselves up for failure or are we going to reshape our future and turn those negatives into positives.
We all have heard the terms, like attracts like. Therefore if you live in the positive mindset, you will have a positive flow around you. If you live in a negative mindset, you create a vortex and basically feed that mindset, therefore negativity will flow around you. However, life is not always a beauty of roses. Life happens- daily negativity happens. So what do you do? Change our reflex thinking! Signal our brain to think different!
A conditioned reflex is a habit pattern of reacting a specific way to life's experiences. When we experience positive in our life, a reflex reaction of positive produces good. However, it is important when negativity arises, we deal with the negative response the same way as a positive reflex reaction. This means when a negative experience occurs in your life, you must react in a positive manner to the negative experience. By doing this you will seek greater truth behind the veil of the negativity in the moment. Also having a greater positive eternal reality of the experience, you will have a greater understanding of your authentic life. So how do you do this? How do you establish a positive reflex?
Well, think before you react! You will apply this method to every negative experience as it arises in your daily life. You must accept that yes, greater spiritual awareness will be found in every experience. All experiences are part of signaling our growth experiences allowing us to have an authentic life, thus greater happiness. Turn those negatives into positives. You can use affirmations. The following are just some samples:
