You are what you THINK, FEEL & BELIEVE you are. Also known as the connection between mind & body our thoughts have the power to alter our inner and outer worlds, so whoever you think you are as a person and however you think the world operates will be reflected back to you in the events of your life and the quality of your health.
Want to come out of your shadows into the light? Alter your emotional state? Rewire your limiting beliefs? Interrupt the habitual patterns? Heal?
There are many healing modalities I could recommend, but one of my favorites and one that has proven to be very effective on my journey has been affirmations! Affirmations are a part of my daily routine, a self-love practice that invites me to reprogram the subconscious mind of limiting beliefs and encourages me to see things as they really are - with love and kindness :)
Affirmations can be powerful positive statements that highlight or manifest certain values in your being. It is a way to love yourself, to be reminded of what qualities, traits & values you wish to embody & to create the reality you want to live. Affirmations also help us to step back from self-judgement and self-sabotage.
I believe that when we intentionally put thoughts, feelings, perceptions, and beliefs into the subconscious mind WE CAN CREATE OUR FUTURE.
I invite you to come up with 7 or more affirmations which you believe will help you rise up & heal. Align them with the energy centers so that you can start to re-center each day when you recite them out loud in front of the mirror.
