Love and Understanding

Original affirmations by authors Kathy Kinney and Cindy Ratzlaff. All rights reserved. http://QueenofYourOwnLife.com

She woke up with anxiety but felt immediate relief when she remembered that she was in charge of how to react to people, places and things. She decided that today she would respond to everyone with understanding, love and a sense of fun – including herself. – Queenisms™

Why are we so quick to give love and understanding to others, but so slow to give it to ourselves. Look in the mirror today and repeat after us: “I understand you are doing the best you can, today. I admire you for that and I support and love you.”

Affirmations are powerful exercises where we imprint new thinking onto our brains and they really work. No matter how foolish you may feel at talking to yourself, please give this a try, and another try, and another. We can attest, personally, to the transformational qualities of retraining your brain to hear positive messages from you, about you and we offer this exercise to you.

  1. I am a big fan of learning to observe what your inner commentary is telling you, interrupting what is unhelpful (“just who do you think you are talking to?”), and substituting a more helpful monologue. I would add that it is even more powerful to include the poer of your imagination: I will often have my clients do positive imagery rehearsal prior to a stressful event.or for a desired outcome. Research supports that when you include the body in an intention as well, the result is magnified, so I’ll also have people write down what they want to affirm for themselves. (A great free service is FutureMe.org… I just wrote a blog post on that.)
    Having said that, one caution is that sometimes saying affirmations is like “putting whipped cream on garbage.” Sometimes there is a deeper level of shame or healing needed to be addressed, and outside help will get you there faster… LOVE YOUR IMAGES/QUOTES! Thanks.

    We couldn’t agree more, Queen Mary. In our book we talk about 7 steps to claiming real happiness and affirmations are just the easiest of the steps to illustrate but there is deeper work necessary. Sounds to us like you’re doing powerful work in the world. Bravo!
