Affirmations – Just Say Yes To Your Life
- What are affirmations?
Affirmations are positively formulated statements about yourself
yourself, a situation or a desired outcome.
- Who made affirmations popular?
Louise Hay. She believed that negative beliefs make the body sick (book: “You Can Heal Your Life”) and turning them into positive thoughts makes it healthy again.
- How often should you use affirmations?
… until the desired result is achieved.
- Do affirmations always work?
No – and that doesn’t mean you’re doing something wrong. Affirmations are very personal. If “I love myself as I am” feels wrong to you, the constant repetition of this affirmation will lead to ever greater self-doubt.
- How can you dissolve this self-doubt?
By working with your resistance and finding out what is preventing you from accepting the affirmation. If you succeed in naming and dissolving the resistance, this is where the real chance for healing lies.
