Read the set of related affirmations below aloud. It’s important to your conscious and subconscious mind to hear the affirmations said in your own voice. Choose one or two of the affirmations from the set to start working with. You only need one or two affirmations, used consistently, to make a substantial change in your life.

Choose one affirmation that feels easy to you and choose another that generates resistance or disbelief. The idea is to practice extending your current self-imposed limits and encourage growth.

Say your chosen affirmation loud enough for your mind to hear your voice saying the words and take notice of how you feel as you begin and as you continue your practice. Repeat your chosen affirmation multiple times a day for at least 30 days and reinforce your affirmation by writing it in your journal.

You can change your life by beginning an affirmation practice – using one or two favorite affirmations over the course of 30 to 60 days can permanently change your mindset and your life.

What makes you feel safe? Is it related to your physical well-being – for instance, living in a secure apartment or home where you have little worry about any outsiders breaking into or walking into your private space? Is it related to your emotional well-being – happily involved in a relationship that makes you feel good and that satisfies the wishes of your heart, or being on loving terms with your family members?

Your safety can be an affirming and positive part of your life – an aspect that helps you to feel good and lowers your stress level, or it can be a source of upset and worry. If you don’t feel safe, it’s hard to feel confident about what you experience every day. Feeling unsafe is not a productive way to live, and while we may not have 100% control of our external environment, there are things we can do to feel safe.

Check out the affirmations below – choose one or two that resonate with you, and one that brings up resistance for you. Which affirmations do you find easy to say out loud and to repeat? Which ones are harder? Take note of where resistance or negative emotion rises when you read the affirmative statements – that’s an indicator of an area of your life where you should be open to change.
