Affirmations On Thoughts

Affirmations On Thoughts

My every thought has the power either to wound or to heal.

This affirmation is about spiritual energy. Make this your lesson today: when you hold a thought about someone, you are either drawing them near or pushing them away.

The power that draws people near is love. When you hold anyone in loving awareness, our natural instinct is to embrace, and whoever is embraced is being released from separation.

Fear pushes people away. Anyone you push away is being told to go back into separation. Your thoughts may seem like small things, yet each person occupies a fragile space emotionally and is easily wounded. Today welcome everyone into the light that you can. This is vital to your healing and theirs.

I will use my thoughts wisely and respect their power.

This affirmation is about taking responsibility. After saying this affirmation, end by sitting still and consciously bringing everyone you know into your awareness.

See them coming together in a town square. Imagine that you are the ruler of this gathering, with the power to hurt or benefit anyone you wish. Now look over all the faces gazing up at you and say, I will use my power wisely. In this promise you acknowledge your role in everyones healing. You offer your thoughts to the service of spirit.

I am not my thoughts; my thoughts are recycled information.

This affirmation is about identification. As you say it, experience your thoughts. Each of these belongs to you, but they are not who you are. You are the one who observes them. You are the experiencer behind the experience. As matter and energy are recycled through you, everything is in flux except the true self, which organizes life like the choreographer of a dance, guiding every step without walking onstage herself.

Adapted from The Deeper Wound: Recovering the Soul from Fear and Suffering, by Deepak Chopra (Harmony Books, 2001).
