The Power Of Positive Affirmations

Positive Affirmations

When patients come for treatment at Above & Beyond Acupuncture in Scottsdale, AZ, they are looking for help feeling better physically, emotionally and/or spiritually.  Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine can provide the relief they seek, but we also like to provide tools that can work synergistically to help these patients gain wellness and balance in their lives.  Using positive affirmations is one tool that patients use to create a more peaceful existence.

So you might be wondering: what are positive affirmations? Affirmations refer primarily to the practice of positive thinking—fostering a belief that “a positive mental attitude supported by affirmations will achieve success in anything.” More specifically an affirmation is a carefully formatted statement that should be repeated to one’s self and written down frequently.

By repeating positive affirmations, you will bring new beliefs into your conscious and subconscious minds, allowing you to transform old and limiting mental constructs.  This is a way of reprogramming your thought process: by bringing in new and positive thoughts you can eliminate negative and limiting beliefs.  It is extremely important that these positive affirmations are repeated consistently and with feeling; the more emotion you attach to this new belief, the more easily it can become a part of your reality.

There are many different positive affirmations that can be used for a variety of purposes, including health, love, abundance, joy, weight loss and peace.  When choosing an affirmation, it’s important to see how it feels when you recite it.  Look deep inside and ask yourself if this is the right one for you.  Here are a few sample positive affirmations: [Link]

  • My body heals quickly and easily
  • I know that I deserve love and accept it now
  • I choose to make positive, healthy choices for myself
  • When I believe in myself, so do others
  • I am at peace in mind, body and soul
  • I am worthy of the best life has to offer

In a previous blog post, we discussed a technique called reframing, which is extremely useful as it encourages an individual to reframe the words they use so they can lead a positive life. We also shared some valuable information about meditation and how helpful it can be in calming the mind, body and spirit.  By combining positive affirmations, reframing and meditation, you will help shift your state of being quickly, effectively and efficiently if used regularly.
