Today’s Miracle Morning practice included a Meditation which I will link below, followed by affirmations, visualisation, exercise, reading and journaling.
I have been asked to share some more thoughts on the affirmations I am currently using and or visualisations and why.Today's meditation actually included a visualisation.
My intentions with some of my affirmations has been to focus on changing my mindset in particular by looking at the language I use. When considering affirmations it's important to keep the words we choose positive, considering what areas I could work on I look at the language I use and one in particular that came to mind was how I use the word 'sorry' as do others around me. Often it's used in a sentence or sentences more times than I can count! Why and what impact does this have?
If I or you replace the word 'sorry' with thank you. It can make a real difference to overall mindset and impact on our emotional and mental states. So why do we choose to use this word? Often ‘sorry’ is used to gain acceptance , or to be nurturing or even we might think it is polite (I think my friends in the UK may agree with this). It's also used to avoid confrontation and shy away from decision making. When really this is not the true reason to be using the word sorry.
So what can I do / you do to change this, firstly it’s important to decided if you are demonstrating this use of language and how you feel about your own use of the word. Let me give you an example then if how you might change this simply , instead of saying 'sorry the house is a mess' when friends stop by say 'thank you for visiting'. If you are late instead of saying 'sorry I am late' I can say 'thank you for your patience'. When I'm going through difficult emotions instead of saying 'sorry I am so upset' 'I can say 'thank you for your support'. Instead of saying 'sorry I don't have time to do that ' I can say 'thank you for understanding my decision'
It is a small but subtle change in words, which I believe will change the way I or you (if you choose to do the same) can influence , consider and treat ourselves and then outwardly to how we communicate with others. Improving our own emotional states and our ability to communicate effectively.
Saying sorry is sometimes very important to do but by using the word in it’s real context we will stand in our own power and at the same time put more value back into the word sorry for when it’s truly needed.
To share my affirmations today are:
“I am willing to use affirmations in a heart-felt positive way. I am willing to be surprised and inspired by the power of my own words.”
''My thoughts are filled with positivity and my life is plentiful. Thank you''
''I am saying thank you , to spread more positivity out into the world''
I would love to hear your affirmations, you ideas on how sorry can be changed to thank you and your experiences on how this has changed things for you.
