Affirmations to help deal with loss

Feb 19, 2021

Our thoughts create our reality.  And when we’re experiencing grief, our feelings and thoughts can exhaust us and negatively fill up our mind and heart. When we become aware of these heavy or negative ideas and emotions, we have the ability to transform them. The way to transform feelings is by fully feeling them.  The way to change our thinking is to change a negative thought into a positive one. Affirmations are a helpful tool in doing this.

An affirmation is a declaration and positive thought to help move you toward peace and happiness. We can allow whatever feeling to just be but we don’t want to wallow in it. In times of sadness, an affirmation can allow the mind to shift from a negative thought into a positive one. It can transform our state of being.

An affirmation may be said repeatedly or just once. Some people post affirmations around their home to remind them of these ideas. Below is a list of affirmations that may help guide you in troubling times.  Some may resonate more than others. Choose what connects with you and allow yourself to take it in and wash over you.
