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.

6 Quick Tips To Focus Your Mind to Heal Your Body

6 Quick Tips To Focus Your Mind to Heal Your Body

Never underestimate the power of the mind. Your mind is your most powerful tool and contributes hugely to your healing process. You can use the power of your mind to ease pain and help your body to heal.

Meditation to heal the body

 

Following these steps with your conscious mind will help you, but the real power is your subconscious mind. So if at all possible, get yourself in to a meditative state before doing these exercises.  (The most powerful way to access your subconscious mind is as you drift off to sleep so you might even want to record these exercises and take yourself through them at bed time.)

It can be hard to relax or quiet your mind when you are anxious or in pain. Don’t worry too much if you can’t do it at first, it will come as you move through the following steps. 

Behind every feeling and thought, there is an emotion. Different emotions affect different parts of your body.

Focus your awareness (without criticism or judgement) on the painful part of your body.

  1. Imagine surrounding and filling the painful part of your body with beautiful, warm healing energy.

  2. Fill and surround the whole area with love. Imagine gently pushing the pain out of your body (without criticism or judgement) and filling the whole area with love and/or light.

  3. Imagine surrounding and filling the painful part of your body with beautiful, warm healing energy.

  4. Get right down to the cellular level, imagine surrounding and filling every cell with love.

  5. Thank your cells for the amazing job they do for you. Talk to them, see if a feeling, thought, smell, taste or other message comes to you.

  6. Move into your heart and into deep gratitude to your body. 

We are energetic beings, sending love and gratitude to our bodies instead of judgement and criticism not only changes how we feel but it changes our energy and our physiology.

It is vital that you deal with the emotions causing or contributing to your pain. The more specific you can be about your emotions, the more effective your healing tends to be. If you know how you feel about your pain, how it affects your life, your mood and your ability to do the things you want to do, accept and acknowledge that emotion as it comes up.  Use your favourite energy therapy on the emotion or simply surround it (and yourself) with love and/or light.

Different emotions affect different parts of the body, financial fears tend to lodge in the lower back, toxic relationships can affect our stomachs, fear of what lies ahead in our hips, carrying too much responsibility might manifest in our neck, shoulders and/or upper back. All of the emotional issues connected to the different areas of the body are addressed in great detail in my What Your Body Wants To Hear meditations – I have done the hard work for you. 🙂

I use very, very specific clearings and affirmations to target all the underlying emotions which contribute to pain in different areas of the body in my What Your Body Wants To Hear meditations. I believe that is why people report such great results.
