Recently I finished reading “21 Days to Master affirmations” by Louise L. Hay and it was a life changing insightful book that you MUST read.
I would like to include as usual, all my favorite “things” that are helpful and meaningful and I hope you will find this post enjoyable as well, in the same manner, I found the book.
“Life loves you and wants you to have the very best of it. Life wants you to have peace of mind, inner joy, confidence and an abundance of self-worth and self-love. You deserve to feel at ease in every moment of your life and you deserve to earn a good living.”
“An affirmation is everything you say or think. When I talk about affirmations, I mean consciously choosing words that will either help eliminate something from your life or help create something new in your life.”
“You need to pay attention to your thoughts so that you can begin to eliminate the ones creating experiences you do not want in life.”
“The only moment you ever live in is this moment. It’s the only time you have any control over. If you don’t choose to feel good at this moment, then how can you create future moments that are abundant and fun ?”
“Affirmations are solutions that will replace whatever problem you might have. Whenever you have a problem, repeat over and over: All is well. Everything is working for my highest good. Out of this situation only good will come. I am safe.”
“You were born extremely confident. You came into this world knowing how wonderful you are. You were so perfect when you were a tiny baby. You didn’t have to do anything – you were already perfect – and you acted as if you were aware of it. You knew you were the center of the Universe. You weren’t afraid to ask for what you wanted. You freely expressed your emotions. Your mother knew when you were angry – in fact, the entire neighborhood knew it. and when you were happy, your smile lit up the whole room. You were so full of love and confidence.”
“Little babies will die if they don’t get love. Once we are older, we learn to live without love, but no baby will stand for that. Babies also love every inch of their bodies, even their own faces. They have no guilt, no shame, no comparisons. They know they are unique and wonderful. You were like that. Then somewhere during your childhood, your well-meaning parents passed on their own insecure feelings and taught you feelings of inadequacy and fear. At that point, you began to deny your own magnificence. These thoughts and feelings were never true, and they certainly aren’t true now. So I want to bring you back to the time when you really knew how to be confident.”
“Be willing to allow the changes to happen when they come up in your life. Be aware that where you do not want change is exactly the area where you need to change the most. The Universal Intelligence is always responding to your thoughts and words.”
The following about health reminds me of Dr. Bach Flower remedy therapies, as it suggests the same idea, which of course, I have seen it in previous and numerous other holistic books.
“I believe that we contribute to every illness in our body. The body, as with everything else in life, is a mirror of our inner thoughts and beliefs. Our body is always talking to us, if we only take the time to listen. Every cell within our bodies responds to every single thought we think. When we discover what the mental pattern is behind an illness, we have a chance to change the pattern and, therefore, the disease. Most people don’t want to be sick on a conscious lever, yet every disease that we have is a teacher. Illness is the body’s way of telling us that there is a false idea in our consciousness. Something that we are believing, saying, doing or thinking is not for our highest food.”
“Sometimes people do want to get sick. In our society, we have made illness a legitimate way to avoid responsibility or unpleasant situations. If we can’t learn to say no, then we may have to invent a disease to say no for us.”
“True healing involves body, mind and spirit. I believe that if we cure an illness, yet we do not address the emotional and spiritual issues that surround that ailment, it will only manifest itself again and again.”
If you want to know more about what Dr. Bach advised and recommended, I highly advise you to read my introductory article about Dr. Bach Flower Remedy Therapies.
“If you want to create better health in your body, there are definitely some things you must not do: You must not get angry on your body for any reason. Anger is another affirmation, and it’s telling your body that you hate it, or parts of it. Your cells are very aware of every thought you have. Think of your body as a servant that’s working as hard as it can to keep you in perfect health no matter how you treat it. Your body knows how to heal itself. If you feed it healthy foods and beverages, give it exercise and sufficient sleep, and think happy thoughts, then its work is easy. The cells are working in a happy, healthy atmosphere. However, if you’re a couch potato who feeds your body junk food and lots of diet soda, and you skimp on sleep and are grouchy and irritable all the time, then the cells in your body are working in disadvantage – they’re in a disagreeable atmosphere. If this is the case, it’s no wonder that your body isn’t as healthy as you would like it to be.”
“You will never create good health by talking or thinking about illness. Good health comes from love and appreciation. You want to put as much love into your body as you possibly can. Talk to it and stroke it in loving ways. If there’s a part in your body that’s ailing or diseased, then you want to treat it as you would with a sick little child. Tell it how much you love it, and that you are doing everything you can to help it get well quickly.”
“You can choose to think thoughts that create a mental atmosphere that contributes to illness, or you can choose to think thoughts that create a healthy atmosphere both within you and around you.”
“Another false assumption is that you must be an artist to be creative. That’s just one form of creativity, and there are so many more. You are creating every moment of your life – from the most common, ordinary creation of new cells in your body, to your emotional responses, to your present job, to your bank account, to your relationships with friends and to your very attitudes about yourself. It’s all creativity.”
