    There must be something in the air… I’ve been thinking of affirmations lately and dug out my list of suggested affirmations for clients. I’ll have to add yours to the list. Affirmations really do make a difference. It can feel a little uncomfortable or insincere at first, but if you stick with it it’s totally worth it!

      Hi, Katie, yes it does seem insincere at first, and is worth it. It’s good to have an array of tools to use when that subconscious mind gets stuck along the way. Great hearing from you! Thanks.

    I wholeheartedly agree with what you have written.
    As a minister, I conduct workshops on breaking through limiting beliefs. Most people are not really aware of the beliefs that are lurking in their subconscious mind. However, these beliefs are controlling their lives — literally.

    During my workshops, I have individuals get in touch with some of the beliefs that are impacting their lives in negative ways. I teach them to pay attention to their negative self-talk so they can start to challenge these ideas. Then they can create positive affirmations which they can say instead.

    Sometimes a person has such a limiting belief, that she cannot even come up with a positive affirmation to counter it. This happened in one of my classes. A woman was so used to putting herself down, she couldn’t come up with a positive affirmation such as, “I like myself.” So I had her start at a place where should could say the affirmation comfortably. She came up with, “I am willing to begin to learn to like myself.”

    When using positive affirmations, it is really important to be sure that the person can actually begin to believe what she is affirming.

      Yes, Rev Della, I completely agree that some persons are helped by first giving themselves approval to take baby steps in the process. Thanks for commenting. I appreciate hearing from you.
