Innately I have always been very hard on myself. If someone else treated
me the way I treated have treated myself in the past they would be
shunned and locked up forever never to be seen again. Never in my
wildest dreams did I realize that I was the one keeping me down all
those years. Yes people mistreating me just made me turn on myself
at a deeper level, but I had the power to treat myself with the respect
I deserved. So many years have been sacrificed and if I had only known
about a simple thing called a Positive Affirmation I would have been
rescued from myself.
Louise Hay one of the pioneers of positive affirmations outlined
a way to re-script the way we talk to ourselves within our own minds
in her profound book: I Can Do It! (A free version of the audiobook
is below for your enjoyment and growth)
My sister struggled with her own self talk as much as I did even though
she seemed very tough and impenetrable. She found the book and started
to transform into a more positive and fulfilled soul. She and I read it for 30
days and put the positive affirmations into practice in our own daily lives.
What a powerful, yet seemingly obvious cure for negative and self deprecating
behaviors. I was always deeply kind to others; now it was my time to be just as
kind to myself.
When I am over taxed, stressed and life is kicking my ass, I fall comfortably back
into the pattern of negative self talk-so as I sleep I listen to Louise recite some
very specific and usable positive affirmations for every situation and in the
morning I look in the mirror with love as a pose to disdain.
That is a beautiful thing.
Our world and others can be so hard us, lets not be so hard
on ourselves. You are a beautiful gift!
Journal Entry: Create a line down the centre of your page.
Write a title on top of the left column-Negative Affirmations
and the title Positive Affirmations on the right column.
Now write down as many of the specific things you say to
yourself all the time that are not nice (be honest!)
and then turn that negative thought into a positive affirmation.
Ex: Neg-“How could anyone love me?” Pos-“I am lovable and wonderful”
Do as many as you can!
