“I am safe! I am loved! All my needs are being met!”
Good Sunday morning to you all! The week I am leaving behind has been a good one! But the week I am headed into is bound to be better! The affirmation above is one that is simple and powerful! To know that we are safe in this world, ,loved, and that our needs are being met!! Well, that pretty much covers us entirely……in one simple sentence!
Sometimes when I am out alone, in a new area, I can become a little overwhelmed with a feeling of not knowing where I am or just feel alone and vulnerable. When this happens I know it is just my mind working a little overtime and I say an affirmation very similar to the one above. My affirmation has the word “safe” in it. “I am safe” is a calming statement. Repeat that to yourself in situations where you feel less than comfortable in your surroundings, it can calm your nerves.
Feeling safe is a basic instinct, one we have felt since we were born, probably well before that! Giving babies pacifiers to calm them is a great example of our need to feel safe. When my daughter had her first baby, the Dr. explained to her why a pacifier worked to calm her daughter in this way; she said the baby doesn’t understand all that is happening, she is in a new environment and gets rattled easily at times, putting a pacifier in her mouth is like causing her little world to set itself upright, it grounded her so that she could relax. We adults can’t exactly walk around with a pacifier to pull out at any given moment to help us feel “safe”!!
Next best thing? An affirmation! Nobody knows you’re doing it and they work wonders!! I tell you start doing them and they will become your best friend in times of stress.
( I know this seems pretty basic information, I think you may be surprised by how many people have trouble with this and may not realize they can take control of that feeling.)
“I am safe in the universe! All life love and supports me”
