I recently read an article where the author states that he doesn’t believe in “positive thinking”.
However this author does believe in holistic and spiritual healing.
What he was saying did make some sense. He was stating that that you need to use your intellect to obtain what you desire in life – not “wishful thinking”.
I know that there are people who constantly repeat positive affirmations but they never get up off the couch and take action to obtain their dreams. This is what I call wishful thinking or daydreaming.
To me positive affirmations are a way to feel better about yourself. They are a way to control your subconscious thoughts.
In my line of business I have encountered numerous people whom have never been told that they are special unique individuals.
How about you?
When you were growing up was you taught that you are a unique individual?
Were your feelings and opinions are valued because they are yours?
That it’s all right to disagree with others and for others to disagree with you?
So many of us never got the acceptance we needed while we were growing up – so as adults we are constantly looking for acceptance from others. It takes time and patience with yourself for your subconscious to begin believing that you are a wonderful, loving, worthy human being.
This is where “positive thinking” comes in very useful. The more you repeat them, the deeper they are enrooted into you subconscious. Affirmations with feelings have always been some of my favorites …
“I feel good”
“I feel energetic”
“I feel healthy”
“I feel happy”
“I feel loved”
“I feel valued”
“I feel enthusiastic”
Think about this quote ….
“Our subconscious minds have no sense of humor, play no jokes and cannot tell the difference between reality and an imagined thought or image. What we continually think about eventually will manifest in our lives.” Robert Collier
