Reminding Yourself to Destress

Hey! Hey! 

Reminding yourself to destress with purposeful affirmations is the topic of this day...

How are you doing my dear friend?

Hoping and praying you are doing okay.

One thing I know for sure is that we, as spiritual beings having human experiences, have great authority and power over our behaviors and beliefs. I know that this is so because I have learned, and keep learning, this lesson of what we are capable of.

I believe, with all my heart and soul that anyone can change! Everyone changes! The goal is to change for the better though, right?

Anyone can change by overcoming addiction, anger, anxiety, depression, and despair. I know that this is so, and I know it because of my personal and professional experiences. Millions of people change emotionally, mentally, and physically, for the better, every day!

A great way to improve upon any negative behavior or belief we have, is to watch carefully our phrases of affirmations. Affirmations are basically reminders, and they may be intentional or unintentional. When they are intentional we can be more in control of our beliefs and behaviors. To govern our phrases and vocabulary is to govern our reality because words have power!

Some phrases and words that I have eliminated from my thoughts and verbalization are difficult, fat, hard, hate, and tired.

I use to say things like, "Life is so difficult, I'm so fat, this or that is so hard, I hate this or that, and I'm so tired." The reason I have eliminated these so called affirmations/reminders from my life is because I know the power of the subconscious mind. Whatever we believe, the body and mind comply.

Not only does our body and mind cooperate with our thoughts and words but, there is a lot of fear in those statements, and fear is the drainer of confidence and energy. Fear is stress, and so stress is actually the drainer of confidence and energy.

Affirmations become our beliefs, and if we govern our affirmations, we can, and will govern our beliefs a little bit more each day.

This is not faking it until you are making it, or pretending, this is choosing beliefs via exquisite focus. We are intellectual beings, and we can choose what we focus on intentionally rather than by default. This is leveraging the subconscious mind to work in our favor.

Whatever you want, you can and will move towards it if you govern your faith and focus a little bit more. 

So, the question is, what do you want?

Do you want better health?

Do you want love?

Do you want wealth?

Alls you gotta do is govern your thoughts and words towards what you want a little bit more, and you can and will see changes for the better.

Let's say you want more positive emotion, or maybe more mental focus, or maybe more energy. Just take a moment and think about your thoughts and verbal affirmations that are holding you in the place you do not want.

For example, saying things like, "I'm so anxious, angry, or depressed. I have a hard time remembering things. I'm so drained, fatigued, or tired," will keep you exactly right there, where your words proclaim.

If you are saying things similar to those mentioned above, your subconscious mind is complying by solidifying the thoughts you keep thinking into deep unwavering beliefs. These strong beliefs are activated and created by you my friend.

I know that any belief can be changed by changing the way we think about things.

Regular negative affirming can be changed by consciously choosing better words. 

I have learned to say things like, "I am relaxed, I can handle this, I can handle anything, I am doing really good, I can practice anything into permanence, or I got this!"

Do you see how encouraging yourself with your affirmations can, and will make a difference in your life if you but choose to speak and think better about yourself? This is really quite brilliant because the world teaches us to be afraid and to discourage ourselves and others. This is just playing a more active role in our own training.

This is taking an active role in living with confidence, ease, and grace rather than anger, anxiety, depression, or despair.

Destressing yourself with affirmations/reminders is a really great way of taking charge in your own part of getting better and better at life versus getting more bitter. We can choose you know? We can choose what we want to be for ourselves and then be that, what we want. That choosing is our authority, power, value, and worth.

The best way to actively use affirmations, in order to destress, is to first begin a practice of meditation, which I wrote about in my last post, and you can read it by clicking here. 

Meditating, is a practice that will help an individual with focus, and with quieting the mind. Meditation can and will assist an individual in becoming more aware of the negative affirmations that are holding him or her in a stressful state of being.

So, if you wanna destress a little bit more, and if you wanna level up in life a little bit more, decide what you want, believe that you can accomplish it, create an affirmation that will confirm that belief, and state it often, over and over again. If you do this, you can just watch yourself evolve a little bit more. I'd do it for thirty days, at least, and if it works, which I believe it will, keep on a doing it.

Don't forget to meditate daily because it will enhance the change.

What say you?

You can do it!

Praying you will do it for you!

Have a great weekend, and stay tuned for more direction, and guidance on using meditation, and affirmations to destress.

God bless you my friend...
