Affirmations...I believe they work.  I occasionally teach yoga classes using positive affirmations with each posture.  I taught my afternoon class using affirmations today.  We are bombarded by so much negativity that I think anything positive we can put out in the universe will help.

One of my favorites, do a simple twist and repeat the affirmation..."I let go of my past."
It is easy to wallow in the past, to cling to it and relive every moment.  There comes a time when you have to let go to move forward.

Another of my favorites, a forward fold..." I let go of stress".  Hard to be stressed when you are in a forward fold.

The nice thing about doing a class with positive affirmations...once you move through that posture and repeat that sticks with you.  I have done thousands of simple twists, yet each time I do them, I think about releasing the past...about letting go.

When I do my smart vest, when I walk the dogs...I have several positive affirmations that I repeat to myself.  One that I repeat daily..."I am healthy and well."

I hope your Monday has been a good one and that you have experienced something positive today.
Before you go to sleep tonight, think of one thing to be grateful for and say a positive affirmation.
Goodnight, Sweet dreams


  1. I do believe in positive affirmation also. To many of us still carry negative incidents that happened in our earlier life that we still hang on to and so many time this results in a negative response that is triggered by something someone say or do and we relive the negative all over again unless we disarm this negative response, it pops up it's ugly head at every chance it gets unless we let go of it like you said.

    I have found that EFT Emotional Freedom Tapping is a great way to free ourselves of these recurring negative responses.
    Nick Ortner has a great book called The Tapping Solution.


  2. Now I know why I am a disgustingly happy person. I have instinctively done this all my life. I just feel that life is too short to hold on to negative feelings. I wish to be happy.
