Recently I have found myself on a journey of self, rediscovering me, developing me and truly unfolding. On my path I was introduced to Louise Hay and the power of positive affirmations. Now I am a firm believer of the saying each to their own, but positive affirmations work for me, turning the Can’t into Can and all that. Even my religious friends confirm that they practice it too, but they refer to it as devotions.
What we speak and what we think has a profound impact on our lives.
I wondered how I could I possibly teach this to my 3 year old daughter, but I left it because one of my affirmations is that everything I need will come to me with ease.
Then one day I found the Yes Method by Psalm Isadora NOT really for kids, but you can tweek it to make it more child friendly, but a great method indeed.
I went back to work full time in the beginning of the year and thus my daughter started preschool a big milestone for her, but she has been sick almost every month since joining school. So whenever her nose starts running or I hear a cough I put my hands up in the air and starts the Yes Method saying; “Yes, yes, yes, I am health and strong. Yes, yes, yes Leah is healthy and strong. At first she looked at me as if I was crazy, I will admit, I am not the most normal mother and of that I am extremely proud.
But I digress she then started doing it with me and I would use the Yes Method to build in other positive affirmations for her too.
Then one day while fighting a runny nose and watching a DVD she coughed and suddenly she lifted her arms into the air and started saying: “Yes, yes, yes, I am healthy and strong. Yes, yes, yes, healthy and strong, healthy and strong I am healthy and strong.”
I looked at her and replied; “Yes baby you are”, but to be honest I was so shocked, I didn’t expect that and at the same time I have never been prouder.
We create our beliefs with our thoughts, words and feelings, positive affirmations aid in creating positive beliefs.
My daughter is slowly, but surely ingraining the belief that she is healthy and strong and that she has a strong immune system.
A random, but good beginning to positive affirmations in her life.
