New Beginnings Through Affirmations
© Raimond Klavins
A New Year is upon us counting 365 days. We are invited to create a life of joy, happiness, health, and fulfillment.
Experts estimate that the mind thinks between 60,000 – 80,000 thoughts a day. That’s an average of 2,500 – 3,300 thoughts per hour. Most of our thoughts are unconscious, repetitive and are often negative self-talk.
If we choose to be in 2022 who we chose to be in 2021, then it’s reasonable to assume that the year ahead will unfold pretty similarly to the way the last one did.
Let’s consider the possibility of a radically different, and better, year than any we’ve experienced before, and embrace the habits of thought and behaviour that are bound to make it so.
The beauty of affirmations
The practice of affirmation is a powerful tool to reprogramme our thoughts. Not only is it relatively simple and straightforward, it also comes free of charge. Look at it as a renewable energy for 2022 that you plug in.
Affirmation in its deepest sense is a pathway to your True Self as long as it is not based on hype or false promises by the ego mind, it can truly demonstrate real, positive change.
The first thing to keep in mind is that an affirmation is always positive. Anything else is simply negative self-talk. Negative self-talk is equally powerful but will only negate any attempts to positively impact our lives. What we want to do is use affirmations – or statements rather – to help shift our minds in ways that improve our lives.
By focusing consciously on what we want, as opposed to what we do not want, we strengthen certain neural pathways for new thoughts.
