Affirmations …

Affirmations … One more thing that must be mentioned here is the power and use of verbal instructions: affirmations. 


Psychotherapists call the use of words in this way ‘ego strengthening’.  Others speak simply of affirmations.   Louise Hay has written whole books on the subject of changing our perceptions of ourselves by changing the way we think about ourselves, and she suggests the use of visualisation together with affirmations, because the one strengthens the other. So what exactly is an affirmation?  Stuart Wilde (1987, p16) proposes the following definition:

 “An affirmation is, in effect, a statement either of word, thought, feeling, or action that underlines or confirms a belief pattern that you hold. There are negative or positive affirmations.”
