My name is Yorinda Wanner
On my journey to becoming a happier person I came across Affirmations.
When my first son was about 2 years old I realized that I was doing and saying things like my mother – and not those lovely things and words – but the ones I had sworn I would never do.
At the time I was glad to find a positive parenting course which started me on a journey of personal development, which I wasn’t aware of needing until then.
Positive Parenting led me to rebirthing and a lot of other courses, a lot of them on positive attitude.
My hunger for books on self development was the reason for being a regular in the Library and Bookshops. ” Psycho- Cybernetics” by Maxwell Maltz M.D. , “The Power of the Subconscious Mind” by Joseph Murphy and “Feel the fear and do it anyway” by Susan Jeffers were books I studied a few times in classes and later in classes I facilitated.
I learned about Affirmations, Visualization, Meditation and all of it made sense to me. I was excited learning these tools to help myself to feel better and to be more the kind of mother I wanted to be.
Sharing the journey with others was lovely and I developed some friendships which lasted until now.
Since then I read a lot more books and did more courses some of them on an academic level and I have grown lots as person.
In rebirthing I learned affirmations and the suggestion I used was to write the affirmation on column and the response in the other, for example:
I am lovable and wanted…………………..Yeah right
I am lovable and wanted…………………..I am not good enough
and keep doing that until the response is either neutral or positive.
(From ” Loving Relationships” by Sondra Ray).
I did lots of these and it helped.
Recently I learned that we can say affirmations in a way that bypasses the doubt in our head by ’softening’ the affirmation by wording it like:
· I love the thought of …. (being lovable and wanted)
· More and more am I ….(confident in social situations)
· I love the idea of …..
· I love seeing myself…
· I have decided….
(from ” Law of Attraction” Michael. J. Losier)
Another way of wording something we want so we are more in the energy of allowing is:
Wouldn’t it be nice if…..
If I find myself being stuck in thoughts of that ‘chatterbox’ I can ask myself
Which thought feels better?
(from “Ask and It Is Given” by Esther and Jerry Hicks)
For almost two years I have participated in Laughter Yoga Session.
I am also Certified Laughter Yoga Leader.
My passion is to empower and uplift people.
Wouldn’t it be nice if I could help you to
Do what you love and love what you do
and get to where you want to go
and have fun along the way.
