You have likely heard me emphasize how important it is to take apart your old beliefs, rather than trying to put new ones on top of them. That’s why I’m skeptical about practices that ONLY rely on affirmations or thinking your way to new patterns, since they often bypass your initial wounds and the exiled parts that need to be met and integrated.
However, building a new house while you take apart the old one is VERY helpful. Having something to move towards – what you want to feel and believe and experience – can be very grounding and calming for your nervous system as you’re uprooting your old house and making major changes to your inner world.
In this episode, I talk about when and how affirmations can help you tap into new beliefs you want to live by. Beliefs based in love and trust rather than fear and doubt. And why it’s important to find affirmations that make you tingle, open your heart or even salivate.
