Ever been in one of those negative thought spirals that is annoyingly persistent?
Journaling about this the other day, I remembered a favorite affirmation from New Thought teacher Florence Scovel Shinn.
“Thou in me art inspiration, revelation and illumination.”
Hmm. Thought I would try it. I wrote the affirmation, then continued to reflect on it throughout the day. Sort of like chanting. When my thoughts strayed, I returned to the affirmation. Amazingly, this is really working. Already I feel calmer, more centered and definitely more positive and peaceful.
Exercise: When a negative frame of mind is hard to shake, try writing out this affirmation, then continue writing on what it means to you.
