Constructing your Affirmation


.
A few affirmation samples: In this moment, right now, I surround myself with kindness and an invincible coat of worthiness!

Next: This is from Browneyedgirl, a follower:
“I create my own affirmations by looking inside of myself and thinking about what my fears, worries, and concerns are.

Once I know what they are I create an affirmation to fill in that space, and eventually, I am whole again in that area.

For example, about my fears regarding my abuser, I feel trapped, threatened, and hurt.

I explored those feelings further as they came up anytime HE came up in my head, and eventually, I created this affirmation,

“ I forgive you for what you have done to me and I am safe.”

When I say this to myself, I usually end up imagining I am on an island, with a willow tree and a small cottage.

For me, that image provides a sort of sanctuary for my spirit and soul.”

Lastly, another one of my old affirmations: I strive to love all of me every day and often.

I am perfect. My feelings and emotions are impermanent, weak, and fleeting – without real power.

My true self is the only permanent thing about me.

I am striving to live each minute in the present, bringing awareness to my mind.

My inner self guides me and is always present in this moment.

.

Affirmations should speak to you on an emotional level.

Word selection is specific to our experience.

Get a chair, go into the bathroom, sit down in front of the mirror.

Look into your eyes and repeat your affirmation out loud.

See how awkward that feels at first.

Happy healing!

    I enjoy the words of Brown-eyed Girl. I must mull them over and see what part of an affirmation may hold. Looking into the mirror with purpose is too much like looking into the eyes of another. Perhaps looking outward into nature will be an alternative.

    I sat in my bathroom starring in the mirror reciting my affirmation

    In this moment, right now, I accept all of me, I am perfect and extremely worthy.

    Thought I was lying at first

    Took me a few attempts before I got through

    In a couple of weeks a change started

    I recorded my affirmations and played them back

  3. Words are important, specific

    Love is to abstract for me, I use kindness, I have a mental picture and solid understanding of kindness
