Healing affirmations prove that there is power in the spoken word. Science and medical researchers are proving more and more conclusively that what we think has a very strong bearing on our health. Many illnesses have an underlying cause. For instance aches for no reason may be due to a desire to be loved and held. Arthritis may be caused by long held resentments or a critical attitude. Lower back problems tend to hit people worried about financial issues. High blood pressure may be linked to unresolved emotional issues. Bulimia might be an attempt to purge self hatred. Cancer may be related to unforgiveness. The list goes on. This is by no means hard and fast, written in stone diagnosis but the fact remains that people with chronically negative attitudes and emotions tend to have chronically bad health issues.
The obvious deduction is that if negative words can create ill health, positive words can promote good health. Relaxation and meditation habits can decrease the number of average visits a person makes to an M.D. by 30%. Couples that struggle with infertility find better results when they are relaxed and stress free. Recovery time after surgery and pain management are both greatly enhanced. These ideas are strongly resisted by many in the 'health' community. The reason is that there is a lot of money to be made selling drugs, and surgery and relatively little to be made promoting something as simple as healing affirmations.
The first prerequisite to using healing affirmations is to believe that they are effective and will change you. Believe that you do have control, that your mind can speed healing. The wonderful thing about affirmations is that you can bolster your belief system by using affirmations!
Healing will also be benefited by visualizing your healthy new state. Affirmations combined with visualization are a very powerful tool in your arsenal of health related resources. Visualization has been documented as a primary tool in many cases of healing. Science is now confirming and discovering how this process actually works. Unlike some claims this is not new-age philosophy or 'occult' practice. It is something that is innate in all of us whether we make use of it or not.
Those who embark on a program of health using healing affirmations must be prepared for resistance on several fronts. Many loved ones will believe that the best course of action is the traditional reliance on a medical practitioner. Sometimes medical intervention is critical and absolutely necessary, but if you've decided to adopt affirmations as part of your program be prepared to stand firm in your convictions.
The other thing you need to prepare for is the issue of discipline. One hour spent vividly visualizing your awesome health and repeating affirmations for that one hour will not produce any observable effect at all. This is something that needs to become part of you. It needs to become a habit deeply ingrained, and that is going to take time. If you are impatient and unprepared to allow for the passage of time, you are going to be disappointed.
You will benefit from relaxation techniques and affirming positive things into your life regardless of what condition you are wanting to be healed from. Lower blood pressure, freedom from the effects of stress are all attendant on those who take the time and effort to be still, and to quiet their minds. It is all up to you. Make the time or don't. Benefit from affirmations or walk away. Believe it or ignore it. It's your life, and the quality of life you live is in your hands.
Affirmations can be used for so much more than healing. You can use affirmations to address just about any mind based short fall in your life. Your subconscious mind can be trained to work for you to attain the things you want. Healing affirmations work. Super charged affirmations work even better. How do you super-charge an affirmation?
