Why You Need Positive Affirmations

There's a story that was told about two women Bera and Desha. They were best friends. And married their soul mates (or so they thought). But somewhere along the line, they developed negative energy towards each other. Bera was envying Desha. While Desha was more of an independent woman, Bera was somewhat cautious and needy. Both women’s marriages didn’t work out and while Desha was bold and assertive enough to walk out of her marriage, Bera stayed on. To Bera, Desha was having the time of her life. This created some bad vibes between them. Bera was envying Desha because not only was her marriage heading for the rocks, but nothing also seemed to be working out for her. Anyway, somewhere along the line, Bera had an affair with Desha’s husband. This was during a time that Desha and her husband had separated and going through a divorce. Desha got to know about it. This was the straw that broke the camel’s back. The two of them fell apart. Meanwhile, after some passage of time, Bera ended the affair. 

They both had another friend named Fave.  Fave decided to be the peacemaker. It was Fave’s birthday and she decided to celebrate by taking her friends for a spa treatment. Fave pre-arranged with the spa instructor, who was also a meditation specialist, to help. 

The spa instructor got Bera and Desha in the same room and asked them to help rub a detox treatment on each other’s back. The spa instructor left the room. Before this time, Bera had tried a face-to-face apology to Desha, but it was a disaster. So, when the spa instructor presented this opportunity, she grabbed it.  This time, not only did Desha listen, both gently relaxed as they talked. Because Bera was speaking without the judgment of Desha looking into her face, it had a positive effect. They both had the opportunity to voice what they had bottled up and felt better after the talk. They were reconciled. What the spa instructor did it's a testament to the effects of having positive energy. The two women spoke their words and were able to bury whatever bad feelings they had. 

When the spa instructor walked back into the room, she could feel positive energy. The potent negative energy which was so visible in the room before had evaporated. This means negative energy can be seen even though not physically. You can feel the vibration. 

I think quite a number of people agree that energy can be felt. And so, if energy can be felt, positive or negative energy can be felt as well. So, which would you rather feel and want people around you to feel?  

Bera and Desha’s story teaches that one doesn’t have to see someone’s face to feel the person’s energy. You only have to speak and mean what you say. This is what is tangibly felt by your recipient. Body language is very important in communication. But more than body language, the words you speak take life in the air and create whatever you want them to do. And that's why even though Bera wasn’t looking into Desha’s face when she was speaking, the words took shape irrespective. 

The more positive words you speak, the more negative energy should be dispersed. And this is exactly why you should embrace positive affirmations. Your affirmations create vibrations that people can feel. They don't even have to see you.  

Choose to respond to situations with some positive energy. Negative energy is bound to come from time to time as part of human existence. But you can choose how you respond when its season comes. 

If you have an odour in a room, you may want to use a scent diffuser. This replaces the unwanted smell with your preferred scent. What is really happening here is that you are cleaning the air and replacing it with the aroma of your choosing. Then you feel better. And I think from this perspective.  The words you speak are aromas of the diffusers you are using or candles you are lighting. Once lighted, they go into the air. And since we are bound to breathe in that same air, we are consuming our words. The question is “are you creating your consumption with intentions?”

Whatever it is that you’re speaking is the incense you’re lighting. So, choose which one you want to light. Do you want to light negativity, or do you want to light positivity?

I encourage you to light positivity.
