Self Care Tip #3 - My daily mantra
Doubt, fear and negative self-talk is something I’ve had to consciously work at overcoming. One of the ways I’ve done this is to regularly say positive affirmations. I have them written in my journal and posted around me where I’ll see them often.
I’ve also been inspired to write a ‘mantra’ for myself, a page in my journal that I read out loud to myself every morning and every night before I go to sleep. I also read it whenever I find myself slipping into old thought patterns. My mantra is simply a positive statement of all the qualities I embody, it reminds me of who I really am and what I want out of my life. My mantra sets my intentions of why I do what I do and is a reminder of the constant flow of love and support that is always with me.
I have a little drawing next to it that I colour in each time I say my affirmations; as a visual way of seeing my affirmations come to life. I also hold a Lemurian Seed crystal in my hand as I say speak these words; it’s a powerful way of enhancing my intentions and whenever I need a quick reminder or boost of confidence, I simply hold it in my hand and my mantra springs back to mind.
Although simple, affirmations and mantras are an incredibly powerful way to improve the quality of your life.
