One of the most common questions I get is how I healed my stage 3 adrenal fatigue without drugs and in just months.
Here's the truth—it was a process. It was collaboration of changes in my diet, lifestyle, stress reduction and more. But once I committed to healing on all levels, my healing went into fast forward mode. Today, I want to share one of the most powerful tools that came from somewhere I least expected.
At that time, I was becoming curious about holistic health and the idea of addressing all aspects of the SELF to heal the physical body. That's when I came across the book, Heal Your Body, by Louise Hays.
This is where I started learning about the power of affirmations.
Why are Affirmations so Powerful For Healing?
First, we must understand the power of my own thoughts in relationship to our physical health. To put it simply, our physical body mirrors our thoughts and beliefs. So when we are suffering with conditions like adrenal fatigue, learning how to use positive affirmations to shift my thinking opens us up to powerful and dramatic healing.
It's so easy to get frustrated with adrenal fatigue. Everything seems hard when you're always exhausted. And not getting quality sleep is the worst.
When I was miserable and exhausted everyday, the practice of positive affirmations helped to fill my worried and hopeless mind with positive messages and in turn, they kept my spirits high. And what was even cooler than that, I started to see my physical body start to respond to the positive messages I was sending it.
Once I realized the power of my thoughts were directly connected to what was going on in my physical body it opened me up for amazing healing to flow in.
Let’s be honest there is a lot of negativity in this world and if you get caught up it in it will take us down!
Would you like more control, so your current state of health doesn't take you down, but instead lifts you up?
We must realize affirmations can be negative or positive. If we talk about how bad things are, we are affirming it. And in turn, we are welcoming in more of the same. Our words are powerful beyond measure.
Luckily, though the opposite is true too. When we fill our mind with positive message that make us feel better we can attract more positive things into your life, like healing and great health.
how do you make the shift in your thinking?
The real power comes when we learn to recognize the negative thought in the moment and then re-frame it. And don't worry practicing affirmations is not masking or burying thoughts and emotions to fester up later.
It's about recognizing your thoughts, gaining self awareness. It's okay to be with those feelings for a moment. Then you have a choice: to stay in this negative place or replace the negative thought with a or neutral or positive one.
It's choosing to look at the situation in a completely different way. This has the power to you open up to new insights and new possibilities.
You might not believe in the power of positive affirmations until you give it a fair try for yourself.
So, when you do find yourself in a dark, sad, worried or mad state (and we all experience these times and there is no shame it in) here's where to turn...
11 positive affirmations that will lift you up and open the floods gates to healing...
Why are positive affirmations even necessary, you might be asking? Well, they aren't necessary if you're happy with your life and your current health.
But if you want a better, healthier and happier life you need to spend more time thinking of what you want, instead of the lack there of.
Again, we must understand our physical body mirrors our thoughts, beliefs, and feelings.
So what it all comes down to my friend is choosing thoughts that make you feel better so you can attack more pleasing and satisfying experiences, great health, ...
Remember reciting affirmations are not about ignoring or masking your problems, but rather retraining your brain to look at situations in a different way.
So now what?
Here’s how to use affirmations:
1) Tweak the above to work for you or make your own.
2) Choose a couple at a time or all 11.
3) Write them down in a journal or notebook. Put them in clear view, like on your bathroom mirror or your fridge.
4) Read them aloud to yourself at least twice daily, I recommend first thing in the morning and right before you go to bed.
It's that simple. Ready to open up the floods gate to healing?
