Ladies. Please, please change the words that you think and say about yourself if they are anything less than positive.
I heard reference to yet another study that was done in the 70’s about the power of words.
Under hypnosis, healthy subjects were told that their hearts were sick and malfunctioning. After this suggestion, electrocardiograms were done and the test results were taken to a cardiologist who declared that the subjects had a matter of hours to live. The heart “listened” and began to behave as if it were ill.
Our bodies are listening. Our minds are listening. Our beliefs are listening.
I know that sounds strange, but it is true.
I don’t care if you don’t mean it at first, but please begin if you haven’t already, to speak kind and encouraging words to yourself.
I recommend that you begin with the simple phrase, “I like myself, I love myself.”
Create miracles by speaking God’s truth about you.
You are indeed loved. You are indeed wonderful. You are indeed needed and adored.
That is the truth.
Please don’t wait. Please don’t think that this is a great idea for others but not for you. Or if the idea just sounds nutty, please trust me and do it anyway.
“Oh the places you’ll go” when you give the gift of love and acceptance to yourself.
Love to you!
P.S. What if you get good at this and you’re beginning to feel better by thinking and speaking better, and then you have a really challenging day and find yourself berating your abilities and efforts and everything else? It’s simple. The moment you realize that you are abusing yourself in any way, you stop yourself in your tracks and you repent! Right then! You apologize to your creator and to yourself and you pick yourself up gently and move forward. It takes less than ten seconds! Accept the mistake, own it, say you are sorry and start pouring positives over your mind and heart! I truly believe that we offend God when we speak ill of ourselves or others. We’ve all made the mistake. But we know how to make it right! The goal is to be “in love” and not to go out.
“I am strong!”
“I am healthy!”
“I am learning new ways of being.”
“I am full of hope and love.”
