Affirmations For Self-Love

“We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?”

A Return to Love

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’ Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others. ― Marianne Williamson

The first time I heard this was when my Reiki Master read it out to us at a Shoden Reiki I class. And I didn’t even hear it all!

All I heard was “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, ‘Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous?’. I literally didn’t hear any more.  I must have zoned out. I remember being a bit dazed and confused, it was simply too much for my low self-esteem self to allow in.

Creativity, confidence and self expression can all be crushed by self-doubt, lack of self-confidence and that fierce inner-critic. We need to find a way to quieten the inner-critic, reduce self-doubt, low self-esteem & self-worth and give ourselves the gift of loving kindness, compassion, gratitude and forgiveness. Only then can you boost your self-confidence, creativity, intuition, inner-wisdom, trust in yourself and allow yourself to flourish.

Affirmations For Self-Esteem

My Cognitive dissonance was so great it didn’t even let me hear the words! Writer’s block, getting that job or promotion, telling someone you love them or excelling at your sport can all be blocked by one thing! Lack of self-worth. How far can you get through that passage and how does it make you feel? Most of us were not brought up to love, value and appreciate ourselves. This exercise gives you a great way to test yourself and see where you are in relation to loving and appreciating yourself!

Affirmations For Self-Confidence

If you didn’t get too far through the passage or it didn’t feel true read or tap through our free Affirmations For Self-Love, Self-Esteem & Self-Confidence (parts 1 & 2) then read it through again. Did you get a bit further? How does it feel now?  After working through those clearings, afformations & affirmations I hope that like Sydney and Victoria you will feel at ease with yourself,  your self-esteem will be boosted and you will  be able to give yourself a compliment and truly mean it!

What Kind of Emotional Eater Are You?

What Kind of Emotional Eater Are You?

affirmations for weight loss

What Kind of Emotional Eater Are You?

Through my work as an Emotional Freedom Technique Practitioner I realised that there are many different reasons people reach for the comfort of food. There are as many reasons are there are emotional eaters! Once you identify and clear the underlying emotional roots the urge to over-eat instantly diminishes or vanishes.

Here are some questions to help you identify which emotions are triggering you.

Are you most likely to emotionally eat when:

woman eating pasta

You are lonely

You are stressed

You are angry

When you are doubting yourself

When you are reminded of painful past experiences

What Your Body Wants To Hear Heal Your Relationship with Food
What Your Body Wants To Hear True Key to Weight Loss

If you could change one thing about your emotions what would it be?

I’d stop letting loneliness overwhelm me

I’d stop feeling so stressed

I’d stop allowing others to trigger my anger

I’d believe in myself more

I’d truly heal past emotional pain

The subconscious is where the root causes and the answers to all weight and body image lie.

In many cases there is an underlying pain of fear, grief, danger, trauma or loss which your body is trying to protect you from by laying down and holding on to fat.

In a surprising number of cases, a happy memory can cause emotional eating. Somewhere deep inside part of you equates food with love and safety. Perhaps you had a happy birthday party and a lovely birthday cake, or your father took you to the beach and bought you ice cream. Perhaps soon after, your father left you. Now you think you crave ice cream after emotional loss, but it’s actually love, warmth and safety you crave.

Try out our unique healing affirmation  process, read or use EFT tapping as you take yourself through our Heal Your Relationship with Food process

When you begin to see either of these patterns for what they truly are, you realise how well your body is trying to look after you. This realisation is your first step to self-empowerment and permanent, healthy weight loss!

It has never been about food, it has always, always been about healing painful emotions.

I just wasn’t hungry any longer. I had used your Food meditation the other night for the first time (I always feel guilty about food choices even if all I’ve had is a bagel lol and I find it difficult to know when I’m full, etc.) Well this morning I laid out my breakfast and was happily eating it and then with about 3/4 of it done, I suddenly decided I didn’t want anymore, I just wasn’t hungry any longer. This might seem very normal for most people but that doesn’t happen to me. lol So I was very surprised and pleased! lolJust wanted you to know how effective your meditations are. And by the way, all previous attempts I’ve made at meditating (before purchasing your meditations) have been an abject failure for me, thus why I am really overjoyed to find something effective that makes me WANT to meditate! 😉 lol” A.W. .

Your Body Might Still Be Trying To Protect You From It!

affirmations for weight loss

 

A few years ago in my Emotional Freedom Technique Practice, I specialised in helping people with weight issues. I was fascinated by the various, sometimes complex, reasons we hold on to excess weight.

It’s now widely known that putting on and carrying excess weight can be a protective reaction to trauma. Using E.F.T. it is a fairly simple matter to clear the feelings and emotions around the trauma and allow the body to come back into balance.

What is less well- known is that holding on to excess weight can also be a reaction to a happy memory. A skilled E.F.T. practitioner should be able to help you untangle and heal those feelings and emotions too.

Another, less well-known, aspect of why we hold on to excess weight is that something traumatic happened when you were last at your ideal weight. This can be quite complex to unravel, especially if the trauma is deeply hidden.

One lady I worked with, we’ll call her Sally, used a well-known national weight loss plan and had great success up to a point. That point was 11st 11 lbs and she simply could not get past it! It was like a brick wall that she just could not get over.

Despite following the weight loss plan to the letter, she could never get beyond 11st 11lbs! That was when she turned to me for help.

After a bit of exploratory work and a lot of tapping, I asked what had been going on in her life when she was last at her ideal weight. She told me she was at college, she loved her course, had a great social life and a loving relationship. Everything had been wonderful. It seemed we’d hit another dead end.

We kept tapping, but nothing I tried resonated with her. All of a sudden she exclaimed, “Oh My God! Now I remember”. A deeply hidden memory suddenly surfaced. She remembered discovering the perfect boyfriend had been unfaithful and she, in a fit of misery, had taken a bottle of whisky and walked into the sea one night. Nothing traumatic there then???

healing emotional eating affirmations

Once we had discovered this memory, it was fairly straight forward to clear the emotions and trauma from it with E.F.T.

After clearing the emotions around that memory and maintaining the same weight loss regime, she flew easily beyond the dreaded 11st 11lbs and reached her ideal weight.

Another lady I worked with had a similar experience. The last time she’d been at her ideal weight, she’d become pregnant and as a single mother struggled to survive financially. There was no way she wanted to go back to that! Again, clearing the emotional traumas surrounding that experience, cleared the way for her to go on to achieve her ideal weight.

In cases like these, will power, exercise and strict diets are just not going to cut it because your body, in its wisdom, is trying to protect you. Which brings me back to my favourite saying, “Your body is not your enemy, it is always, always doing the very best it can to protect you”.

Love to all those wise and wonderful bodies,

7 Free Ways to Combat Stress

7 Free Ways to Combat Stress

(Why It’s Vital To Your Health To Ease Your Stress)

affirmations for fear

Stress depletes our immune systems!

Our bodies respond to the images in our minds!

The mind and body are intrinsically connected. Your body is unable to tell the difference between reality and imagination. As a result, when you focus on your fears it creates as much havoc with your hormones, body chemistry and energy field as it would if you were facing a dangerous situation in real life.

Stress knocks our bodies off balance and triggers a cascade of stress hormones which influence your body via the autonomic nervous system. When our bodies are in flight, fight or freeze mode they have less energy available to maintain our immune systems and to heal and repair. It stands to reason then that chronic stress can easily lead to poor health and illness.

Your thoughts create an instant reaction in your body. Emotional stress alerts the body to produce stress chemicals such as cortisol, which—if produced on an ongoing basis—begin to break down the immune, gastrointestinal, neurological, and musculoskeletal systems.

More than ever we have to find a way to consciously relieve our stress levels every day!

Don’t get trapped in fear!

Do whatever it takes to move your attention to something you can feel loving and grateful towards.  Pets are an  ideal source of unconditional love.  If you don’t have a pet, watching animal videos can also be a great distraction. My free Release, Heal & Transform Fear meditation can also help you step out of fear.

Choose where to put your Attention

Focus on something uplifting as often as you can throughout the day. Nature is a great nurturer. No matter how far from nature we seem to have come, as human beings, our roots are in nature and nature is a great healer. So even if all you can see of nature is the sky or a house plant, try to focus and connect with nature in some way.

Boost your immune system!

Your immune system is what is going to get you through this crisis. It has protected you since the day you were born and you want it to be healthy when you venture back out into the world.  Boost your immune system with loving, grateful and positive thoughts and messages. Visualize your immune system healthy, vibrant and sparkling with light. Set a powerful intention to send love and gratitude to your immune system then use these Top Ten Free Affirmations to Boost Your Immune System

Acknowledge the grief. 

Many people are also dealing with grief at the moment. Some people have suffered horrendous personal loss. Even if we haven’t suffered personally, we are all grieving the loss of a way of life.  This grief is perfectly valid and most of us will go through the recognised phases of grief. You can ease and perhaps even speed up getting through this grief by dealing with it consciously rather than trying to ignore or suppress it.  Our Free Affirmations for Grief & Trauma (Recommended as one of the best in grief affirmations by ObitTree) may help you do this.

Meditation

It can be hard if not impossible to completely quiet and still your mind at the moment. This is where guided meditation really helps. It is not asking your mind to be still, simply to follow along as you are guided through letting go of painful or fearful thoughts and replacing them with peaceful, loving, healthy and empowering ones.  Over 21K meditators have enjoyed my free Release, Heal & Transform Fear meditation and left some really lovely reviews. Learn more and download  the MP3 free.

Disconnect

One thing you can do is disconnect from all sources of ‘news’ at least for a short time during the day.  Make sure you don’t leave the news on in the background. Even though you might not be consciously aware of it, those fear-filled messages are getting through to your subconscious mind!

Affirmations

Reading, speaking aloud or using energy therapies with affirmations can be a great way to step out of stress and anxiety.  I have literally thousands of free affirmations for physical pain, finances, self- love, grief, stress and anxiety here on my site. Probably the most useful (apart from the meditations for physical pain which can be found at the above link or through the search facility) at the moment are:-

Why Positive Affirmations Can Feel So Uncomfortable

Why Positive Affirmations Can Feel So Uncomfortable

Why Positive Affirmations Can Feel So Uncomfortable

when positive affirmations are uncomfortable

The simple answer is that your body knows when you tell a lie!

On some level that always feels uncomfortable because it sets up a conflict. If you state “I am healthy” or “I am wealthy” when you don’t believe that to be true your mind will immediately jump in with a “but” and your body will react.  While you might get away with it if your opposing beliefs are not too far apart, you will definitely feel uncomfortable if there is a huge gulf between them.  

This is exactly why all the What Your Body Wants To Hear meditations are constructed with “Why” questions or Afformations between the releasing statements and the positive affirmations (it is also why this site is called Beyond Affirmations). I will never jump straight into positive affirmations – it’s a jump too far for most people.

There is a Very Different Energy Between A Positive Affirmation and An Afformation

People who tried stating a positive affirmation then a “Why” question or Afformation out loud and who had initially thought it would be a negative thing soon realised that far from being negative, it opens us up to the many blessings we actually do have in our lives. It helps us see what is going right for us. In the case of physical healing, it reminds us of all the parts of our bodies which are working beautifully.

In the What Your Body Wants To Hear meditations the “Why” questions are a method of bridging from the releasing statements to the positive affirmations. It could otherwise be too large a jump for people to go straight in to really feeling the positive. It is also a way to get around the mind saying “yes but..” to a positive affirmation. There is a very different energy around the “Why” statements. Try it for yourself, you will feel it. For example if you say “I am abundant” your mind will probably jump to the reasons you are not abundant, “I’ve got this debt/I haven’t got any money” that kind of thing. If on the other hand you say “Why am I so abundant?” the mind tends to go to the things you are abundant in, love, friends, pets, health etc. There is less resistance to the “Why” statements and they help to lead you in to the positive.
