Affirmations for Peace

We’ve all heard about the power of positive thinking. Whether we believe it or not is another thing entirely. Some people find the idea of repeating affirmations to be too contrived and disingenuous, while others experience great comfort when repeating soothing, empowering statements. How do you feel about affirmations? Could they be a useful tool in helping you manage your experience while experiencing radiation side effects, diabetes, eczema, psoriasis or more?

Sit back in your chair, take a deep breath and press play on the video below. At the very least, it will be a nice calm time out to your day.

Every Day Is a New Day

You never know what life will bring you today. No matter what happened yesterday, or the day before, or the week before, or last year…this day, this moment is brand new. You could meet someone who will change your life. You could hear news that will calm your soul. You could discover something about yourself that will change forever the way you see the world. Try to let go of the belief that nothing will ever change or that you’re stuck in uncomfortable situations…see if you can lift your chin and open your heart. Every day is a new day.
