Tell Your Cells The Life You Want To Live.
Notice the language you use. How often do you say ‘I am tired’ or ‘I feel unwell’? Deepak Chopra says: “every cell in your body is eavesdropping on your thoughts”.
Our cells are listening and responding to every word we say. So, what message are you giving your cells? When I had pernicious anaemia, my mantra was ‘I have no energy’. And guess what, I had no energy. Now, I’m not saying that the very words alone made me feel exhausted, but what I am saying is the very thought reminded me that I had no energy. The message going into my cells was that there was no energy here!
Words mean a lot and you can change a situation by the words you choose to hear. Louise Hay, the Fairy Godmother of positive thinking and affirmations, invites us to look in the mirror each morning and say: “I love you (insert your name)”. Taking this action every morning tells your body you love it – what better message for your cells than love?
In your brain you already have affirmations playing, but they may not be the affirmations that help you create the life of your dreams and be the person you are meant to be. Take time to notice your current affirmations. What is your current computer programme running?
Throughout the day, you may use terms such as ‘I’m always tired’, ‘I have no money’, ‘that’s not good enough’, ‘I have failed’. Now is the time to wave some fairy dust on this programme and add some sparkle to your life.
I want you to choose three affirmations you have discovered are playing in your body and add some sparkle to them. Change them into positive affirmations to get your cells bouncing and excited. Below are some examples to help you get started:
I am always tired – I have all the energy I need
I have no money – I have an abundance of money in my life
I’m not good enough – I am enough
I have failed – I am successful
Choose your new positive affirmations and start to reprogram your brain. It’s said it takes twenty-eight days to reprogram new neurological pathways in our brains, so I suggest using your positive affirmation in the tasks below for at least twenty-eight days:
- At the beginning of the day and end of the day write down your affirmations ten times and read them out loud.
- Make your affirmations your screen saver on your phone.
- Use post-it notes to write down your affirmations and put them in your favourite places. Then each time you see them, read them.
- Write down your affirmations on a piece of paper and place them in your purse or wallet. Each time you see your piece of paper, open it and read it out loud.
