Affirmations Resources

Affirmations are an active alternative to a consistent meditation practice. Basically, they are meditations on positive thoughts and statements about you and your life.  By the nature of their grammatical structure, affirmations are designed to keep you in the present moment and to look hopefully towards the future, without creating anxiety.

You can use daily affirmations time to mend many subconscious blockages that encourage your self-sabotaging behaviors (e.g., binge eating, hateful self-talk, procrastination, compulsive/stress shopping, addiction to alcohol, weed, drugs, nicotine, sex, or thrill-seeking).

Over the course of a few months I have personally found that repeating several inspiring affirmations tracks available free on YouTube has made me a much more positive, hopeful, creative, and confident womyn. I’m so happy, and I believe that my self-awareness directs me to share my success with you.

If you already have a serious mental health condition, please talk to your general practitioner, psychiatrist, and/or talk therapist (counselor) first before listening to these tracks. DO NOT USE AFFIRMATIONS INSTEAD OF YOUR PRESCRIBED MEDICINE. For the most part, they are completely innocuous, but I just need to put this disclaimer here in case it can trigger psychosis or seizures in vulnerable populations.

I’d highly recommend the following affirmations (click links to visit original YouTube videos):

Affirmations Practice Hygiene

To make your affirmations practice most effective, be sure to sit in a quiet, comfortable place where you won’t be disturbed for the duration of the affirmations track. You can either set a timer or allow the length of the track to dictate the amount of time you set aside to practice. Sit or recline comfortably without lying all the way down so that you can stay awake for the practice. Sometimes a cup of tea, coffee, or room-temperature water is beneficial too. You can light a candle or burn incense if you’d like some additional aromatherapy benefits.  Assume a half-smile (smile slightly with your lips closed so that just the corners of your lips turn up!) to encourage the release of dopamine (the “happiness hormone”) while you listen to the affirmations track. Doing this will associate your affirmations practice with your neurological reward system; over time your brain will anticipate and actually even create good feelings in response to the practice. I suggest a half-smile because it takes much less energy and focus to maintain than a full smile. Over time you will just assume a half-smile in your seated or reclined affirmations position out of muscle memory.
