I've been thinking about affirmations a lot
recently, and doing them for the last two days.
So far, for me, they work best in combination with
my med. I go to therapy too. I realized the other
day, as I sitting on the couch, glassy eyed and
staring into space, and depressed, that I was
really ruminating on negative thoughts. It was a
habit. It sort of scared me though, b/c I realized
I was talking myself into a certain state. I kept
telling myself I was crazy, kept visualizing myself
in a mental hospital. I realized as I was getting
pulled in deeper and deeper that I was sort of
hypnotizing myself. I got a grip a couple of days
later, and thought "you know, these negative
ruminations can really be dangerous" I could actually
imagine myself talking myself into an actual crazy
state. I realized I was just repeating negative
mantras to myself over and over. So what I'm
trying to do is replace them with positive mantras.
It has REALLY helped. Never underestimate the power
of words. I tell myself I'm practicing "good
word Magic" are a few of my affirmations..
I do them while I powerwalk through the woods :-)

--more love than fear, more faith than doubt
--competent, confident
