Positive Thinking Affirmations for Women

By Deanna Collins

To change your life, you must change your thinking. Unfortunately that is easier said than done. Those in the medical, scientific and religious communities can agree that there is power in positive thinking. The mind is a powerful tool to discipline the body. Positive thinking affirmations become a useful way to reach that end.

Positive Affirmations

A positive affirmation is a statement you can use to replace a commonly held negative statement. For example, if you're always saying, "I feel fat," then a good positive affirmation to replace this sentiment might be, "I am comfortable with my body and am the perfect weight for me."

There is hope in a positive affirmation. Negative statements have a way of halting any future progress. It is acceptance of a false assumption. Positive affirmations focus on the thought process which is where the change begins.

Finding your Affirmations

Everyone has certain negative thoughts that they want to change. Depending on what you "negatives" are here is a broad list of possible positive affirmations that bring hope.

My body is healthy

I have overall health of mind, body, and spirit

I have found more reasons to be grateful because I feel grateful right now

I know that I deserve to be loved

When I give love to others, I receive it back by the power of ten

My partner and I are happy together and living peacefully

My weight is just right for me

My choices are positive and healthy

When I have a need or feelings, I express them

I am unique, special, creative and a wonderful person

Everything comes to me easily and effortlessly

I love "me" just the way that I am

My feelings are important and a part of who I am

I love my job

I always communicate clearly and effectively

I am worthy of what I want out of life

I am getting wealthier each day

I have an abundance of energy

My mind is calm

I control the thoughts in my head

I find success in all that I pursue

As you look through the list of potential positive affirmations, are any compelling? Do any of those affirmations ring true to you or cause a stir of emotion? The affirmations which resonate with you are good ones to start with. For example, if you've been struggling with your weight, spend some thing thinking about the negative self-talk you have around that issue and find a few positive affirmations which give you the strength and motivation to move through this challenge.

Change your thoughts with affirmations. It takes time as with any process but through it all, you will learn to love, to accept and be patient with yourself. Don't worry; the process gets easier with time. Trust the process and discover a dynamic new life. - 16651
