"How Do Affirmations Promote Vibrant Health and Well-Being?"
- by Jeff Staniforth
Whenever someone speaks of healing through affirmations, many people dismiss
it as esoteric - or even nonsense - and they tend to not take it seriously. However, there exist volumes of scientific evidence
that affirmations are an effective approach to healing and the achievement of vibrant health. They have even been shown to
promote regeneration and rejuvenation of the body.
Dr. Carl Simonton of the Cancer Counseling and Research Center
in Fortworth, Texas, reports
on breakthrough studies that use self-suggestion (a form of affirmations) in treating disease. "We think people are now beginning
to realize how much the mind and the physical body are intertwined... We know that the same pathways that are used to transmit
negative things, like cancer growth, can also be used to transmit positive things that can eventually restore a person to
How do affirmations promote health and effect healing?
Illness starts in the mind. When you change unhealthy thought patterns and replace
them with positive affirmations, you also change the energy that flows to your physical body from your etheric body, chakras,
and through your energy meridians.
Your etheric body is the human subtle energy field - one of the layers of the
aura believed to permeate all living things. Think of it as a blueprint of what is in your cellular structure - a blueprint
that reveals your state of health (or ill health) --and gives an indication of conditions that often have not yet manifested
in your physical body.
The spoken word, such as a power affirmation, elicits a strong recuperative response
in the etheric body - a healing energy that permeates to the physical body, causing healing to occur. Affirmations are powerful
instruments that influence both mental and emotional patterns, which are held in the etheric field. The more frequently a
healing affirmation is repeated throughout the day, the more effective it is in carrying out healing.
Following are power affirmations you can use to help heal, regenerate, and regenerate
your body - and foster radiant health. As I've mentioned in the previous issues of this newsletter, choose the affirmations
that feel appropriate to you -- those that resonate with you, or strike an emotional chord. It is important that the words
feel comfortable to you and are in line with who you are. Feel free to create one for your specific need by substituting other
words that have special meaning to you:
* I am perfectly healthy in body, mind and spirit.
* I am well, I am whole,
and I am strong and healthy.
* I am healthy, and full of energy and vitality.
* All the cells of my body are daily
bathed in the perfection of
my divine being.
* I am healthy, happy and radiant.
* I radiate good health.
My body is a safe and pleasurable place for me to be.
* My sleep is relaxed and refreshing.
* I have all the energy
I need to accomplish my goals and to
fulfill my desires.
* God's love heals me and makes me whole.
* My body is
healed, restored and filled with energy.
There are many ways to use your chosen affirmation. You can recite it aloud to
yourself repeatedly, or you may want to write it down repeatedly. The key is to repeat it over and over again throughout the
day. Repeating your affirmation reprograms your subconscious mind to accept these thoughts as reality, and ultimately create
changes in your life that will manifest this new inner reality.

Coue, used one specific affirmation to heal hundreds of patients in Europe and North America?
