Using affirmations – from my 8 year old daughter
Affirmations are positively framed words which help influence our state of mind. Check out my Using Affirmations page for my take on how to apply them in life.
Using Affirmations from my 8 year old daughter (well, 8 and a half!)
Arianna wrote these affirmations for me last week when she saw me getting overwhelmed and stressed. I think I may frame them!
She used Easter bunny stickies and creatively turned them into a book.
In the meantime I’m going to share them here with you to let their magic spread into your brain chemistry…and others.
Always nice to be taught a lesson on using affirmations from my children and a reminder to get out of my own head. Enjoy!
Using Affirmations – built around Arianna’s view of how we first need to BELIEVE in ourselves
1. Believe (see picture above).
I trust myself or
I can rely on myself…
Even, I trust my Inner Guidance.
Interesting to note how the shape and color is effective when using affirmations this way… only noticed this as I’m scanning these on here.
3. Trust your heart not your head.
(You can try both by saying them to yourself with your eyes closed, you’ll notice a difference).
I trust my heart.
(You can leave the negative construct out of the language e.g. ‘not your head’ when using affirmations, or replace it with…
I trust my heart. My mind is balanced and clear.
From the EMF Balancing Technique®, we would say
I feel with my mind and think with my heart. 🙂
So make it the reflexive ‘I’ and also with some sense of future becoming – that puts us under less pressure when using affirmations and opens us to future potentials.
I am constantly becoming the best that I am
I am the best I can be
5. Love, love, love you can always trust
I trust in love, love, love
Love, love, love
I’m so proud of my deep thinking little girl! (Sniff).
If you want to learn more about using affirmations, here’s a book review of You Can Heal Your Life from Louise Hay, one of my personal favorites.
In the meantime, I hope this gives you some ideas to go on and encourages you and your family to begin using affirmations.
