What is Affirmation?
For those of you who aren’t familiar with affirmations and have never worked with them, I’d like to explain a little about what they are and how they work. Very simply, an affirmation is anything you say or think. A lot of what people normally say and think is quite negative and doesn’t create good experiences. An affirmation opens the door. It’s a beginning point on the path to change. In essence, you’re saying to your subconscious mind: “I am taking responsibility. I am aware that there is something I can do to change”
“Every thought you think and every word you speak is an affirmation.”
What causes Physical Illnesses?
Underlying Negative Emotions cause physical illnesses. Here is a short list of common illnesses and their underlying negative emotions.
HEART PROBLEMS: On the emotional level, the heart, and the blood it pumps, represents love and joy and our early connections to family. People with heart problems usually have unresolved family issues that take the joy and love out of their lives. These issues might keep love and joy from entering their lives because they are afraid to let love in. Closing our heart to love is very symbolic of shutting of the flow of life to our heart.
Affirmation: I open my heart to love! My heart is now lovingly pumping joy throughout my body! All is well and I am safe.
ABDOMINAL CRAMPS: Fear. Stopping the process.
Affirmation: I trust the process of life. I am safe.
