One of our older students came to me expressing frustration about a difficult situation. Knowing this student and her learning process well, I suggested a positive affirmation. “How about, I am healthy, happy and whole?”
“What’s whole?” she asked with a puzzled look. “It sounds like I’m a piece of pie or something”, she added. I laughed and said, “How about, I am healthy and happy?”. She replied, “That works,” and proceeded to say these words to herself and move through resolving the potential negativity of an everyday situation.
A kindergarten mama shared a story of her child’s experience while receiving immunizations. She explained how her daughter was calm and handled the situation easily because she used her affirmation, “Unicorns, happiness, puppies”. Brilliant! This child has an affirmation, her mom says, that works in any challenging situation to keep her thinking positive.
Both of these stories reflect a core aspect of Living Wisdom School, change your consciousness to change your situation. Or in the words of Albert Einstein, “No problem can be solved from the same level of consciousness that created it.”
We are surrounded by a multitude of daily difficulties needing us to find solutions. Have you tried using affirmations to help you stay positive and keep your energy up? Take it from the wisdom of these blossoming students, it works!
