What are affirmations? Affirmations are positive statements that one says out loud often that uplifts the person that says them. They are a self-empowering tool that uses the practice of positive thinking.
Affirmations can be a bit daunting at first. I, for one, was kinda rolling my eyes at the idea. "Sure, I'll just say tiny magical phrases and my life will be so much better." sarcasm-intended. But you know what, they do make me feel better. I can't guarantee they will change your life, but they definitely can't hurt!
I first learned about them through Gabby Bernstein, the author of multiple NY Times bestsellers like Spirit Junkie, The Universe Has Your Back and Judgement Detox. I love using her Universe Has Your Back Affirmation Card Deck for daily inspiration and motivation.
Now let's look at a few affirmations I particularly like for fertility:
Something similar to affirmations are mantras. Some people use the two interchangeably. Mantras though are usually a single word or phrase used to concentrate on during a meditation. I particularly like sanskrit mantras. Many of them come from Kundalini yoga which I just started learning about. I actually attended my first Kundalini class on New Years day and it was quite different and exciting.
In Kundalini, you will often find mantras being chanted for several minutes so in the show notes I will link some of my favorite chants for these mantras.
Do you have any favorite mantras or affirmations?
