Affirmations Written In Calligraphy
It can help to have your most powerful affirmations written in calligraphy and where you will see them every day. One of my customers put this affirmation in her bathroom (on a metal surface that's safe in that damp environment) so she would see it every morning to start the day. These statements can keep you going when times are hard and the person you are having the most trouble with is YOURSELF!
Affirmations are statements that we repeat to ourselves. They’re like a mantra that we say again and again to be Inspirational to remove our doubts. It’s amazing because psychological research has proven that repeating affirmations really does work!
It shows us that the human experience is universal. Go into any house and you will see meaningful written words pinned on the wall, stuck to a refrigerator, or sticky notes on your computer. You want to be reminded of their meaning. Perhaps you have your own personal affirmations, sayings or quotes for a situation you’re going through. They help you to keep going when you are feeling down, or fearing failure. If you use an old affirmation, or a famous affirmation, saying or poem, they tell you that other people before you have had the same problems before you and said these words to help themselves. It makes you feel like you're not alone having a problem.
Serenity Prayer as an Affirmation
I use the Serenity Prayer as an affirmation to help me when I’m not sure what I need! I think we all have those times in our lives when decisions are hard to make and you don’t want to do the wrong thing. But you're not sure of what is the "right thing" to do. That’s when I repeat the Serenity Prayer as my affirmation.
An Affirmation Can Be Funny
Affirmations that are funny or disgusting are more memorable. I always go for funny because I'd prefer to have that repeated in my mind instead of something ugly!
This little quote is funny and makes a lot of sense!
One Day At A Time
An affirmation that people with addictions rely on is "One Day At A Time". But it doesn't just have to apply to people with addiction. Anyone can have pain and focus on the fact that you can only deal with RIGHT NOW. This moment is what counts. So this affirmation could also be one moment at a time. I just have to get past this one moment.
Having a powerful affirmation in your head and right in front of your eyes reminds you that you are not alone, and that many others are going through something challenging.
Affirmations for Healing
I have worked on affirmations for healing people of many illnesses. It really touches my heart when I know the power of beautiful calligraphy combined with prayer to help someone heal from a terrible disease.
Victoria had cancer. Her best friend asked me to make this calligraphy affirmation for Victoria to look at while she was having chemo-therapy.
I also did a very large hand painted piece with images of Gandolf from The Ring to help another woman beat back cancer. Although I haven't heard results from Victoria, I am so thrilled to report that the original piece that I did may have helped this young woman to overcome acute leukemia. WOW! It warms my heart to know that I may have contributed in some way to her healing!
Words To Live By
Do you use "post it notes" to remind you about what you want to do? Calligraphy can serve as a much more beautiful and inspirational reminder. Maybe for yourself, or for someone you care about who is having a hard time the visual impact can be powerful. The Serenity Prayer and One Day At A Time are available as prints (that's a lower cost alternative). They can also be personalized for yourself or the recipient of your gift.
Say Positive Affirmation To Yourself
Get rid of negative language about yourself. Be kind and gentle and forgiving with yourself. Be the best person you can be, and forgive yourself when you slip up. Being harsh never helped anyone!
