    Hey everybody,

    Not sure if this is on the wiki somewhere I looked and didn't see it. I use Sarno's daily affirmations on my computer as stick notes but Im wondering if other people would be willing to post theirs as well. I want to start incorporating this more into my daily life because I think it would really help on those worse days and the ups and downs of TMS. Can you guys post a list of affirmations you've used to help get better and maybe this thread can turn to a go-to place for them?

    I love affirmations. I think my favorite is this one from Louise Hay:

    I love and approve of myself.

    Another favorite from Louise: "It's only a thought and a thought can be changed."

    I liked the Sarno affirmations/ reminders too.

    I am healthy and strong.
    I fully and completely except myself and my body.
    The pain is harmless and will be gone soon.
    I am so proud/love myself ((Normally with a few self hugs!!!))

    Lately during Journalling i have really found telling myself that i am a good person, i love myself, proud of self and doing a good job is having amazing effects on reducing my pain as i put pen to paper. I had never focused on self love ect during journalling. But now at the end of each journalling session i write a few lines focusing on loving myself and talking nicely to myself. Using my own name at times has seen instant loosening of muscles around my hips/pelvis area. I don't know how i came up with this idea of talking to myself in a loving and caring way, it just happened or evolved??
    My Journal framework is to write about a past or current stressor by describing my feelings, expressing those feelings on paper(describing what i would do to that person), realising the guilt of those feelings/actions, affirm its not my fault and then loving myself.
