are powerful personal tools. They become increasingly effective
with an increasing belief in their effectiveness. They demonstrate, in a simple and effective
manner, how we can achieve anything with the power of our mind, as
long as we believe we can achieve anything with the power of our mind.
Positive affirmations are a
perfect example of the experimenter controlling the outcome of the
me, and everyone is programmed
by caretakers and society to think and respond in a certain
manner. Most of us are completely oblivious to this
personalised brain washing. We merely accept it. We were taught to think
in a certain
way, therefore we think in a certain way. We were taught not
to think for ourself, so ... we don't!
Our lessons in
self-denigration were begun so long ago, most of us no longer notice the
consistent messages in our minds
undermining our confidence and self-esteem. We do, however,
notice the effects.
Depression, anxiety and
lack of confidence are all outcomes of negative self-talk.
They are blatant examples of negative affirmations.
Positive affirmations demonstrate
a mature approach to mental, spiritual and emotional health. The most
fundamental personal responsibility is being aware of, and directing, our own
thoughts. It is hard work. It may be simple but it is
still hard work.
Demeaning self-talk is a
heavily ingrained habit in most people. Heavily ingrained
habits take commitment and dedication to break. We have to be
supportive of own efforts and become our own cheer squad, and our
own best friend. How would we speak to a friend who genuinely
wants to break a self-destructive habit? Think about it … then adopt the same
gentleness and humour with your self.
It is logical, and good
intuitive sense, to make use of the power of the
mind through affirmations. Simply create a few
affirmations that have potent and special meanings to you, and then
use them every day, whenever you find yourself dwelling on negative
emotions or thoughts.
