Last week I shared with you how to use the power of positive affirmations to counter your negative thinking patterns. This week I want to talk to you about using positive affirmations in your regular meditation practice. I call this the ‘Happiness Meditation’.
While in meditation you are more relaxed and at ease. Thus, your mind is more open to positive thoughts. Basically, you are putting up less resistance or ‘letting go’ while in meditation.
You can use the following phrases, but I highly recommend creating your own affirmations so that the words you are affirming have a powerful meaning to you. These phrases are great for the ‘Happiness Meditation’.
- I move past obstacles smoothly and with ease
- My mind is clear focused and effective
- I love and accept myself
- All that I seek is already within me
- Love is abundant in my life
- I know exactly what to do
Remember from last week that it is important to allow yourself to really feel the emotion of the words you are repeating. Using these phrases while in meditation, is like taking a bath in positivity, where your mind easily absorbs the statements. The words begin to tick away in the back of your mind, and sink easily into your subconscious.
As you know, I practise and teach a lot of Chakra Meditations. Affirmations are a very powerful technique to combine with Chakra work. So if you want to feel an even more powerful meditation try relating your phrases to a specific chakra point in your body and focus on that region as you repeat the phrase.
