Positive Affirmations And Inner Dialogue
Did you know the conversation we're having in our heads is directly affecting the life we're living?
The words we say out loud have power. For example, you can change someone's mood, make a request, inspire joy or fear, ask for what you want and so much more with the words you speak. If they can have that much influence over someone else's energy, imagine the impact they have on your own.
Have you ever really thought about the words you say inside your head all day long?
Remember, you have been criticizing yourself for years and it hasn't worked.Try approving of yourself and see what happens. - Louise Hay
Our thoughts ultimately create the reality we live every single day. So if your thoughts are consistently negative, you're going to have a negative physical experience.
How can positive affirmations help?
#Affirmations are basically positive mental dialogue or stories you tell yourself... the more frequently the better. And they have the ability to rewire your brain and make you see yourself and ultimately the world in a different light. But, you gotta keep up with them.
How to practice positive affirmations?
First, choose a few that REALLY bring up some emotion for you. Make sure they are close to home, but not so outlandish that you'll feel ridiculous saying them. For example: if one of your negative thought patterns is "I'm so fat and gross", you're not going to easily pivot to "I love my beautiful and perfect body". It's going to make you feel like a fraud when you practice it. So rather, you pick something kind of in the middle, like: "I am grateful for a body that helps me move and laugh and experience life." After a while, "I love my beautiful and perfect body" won't be too far from that.
