positive thoughts applied positive psychologyKey Ways that Positive Affirmations Change Lives for the Better – Applied Positive Psychology

The way in which you think about yourself greatly influences how you live your own life. If you have constantly put yourself down, you negatively impact your own self-esteem and the way that you engage with others.

Alternatively, when you adopt positive thinking about who you are as a person, you pave the way for a new future and a new way of interacting with others. When you are serious about improving the way you live, act, and believe, you should learn the five key ways that positive affirmations can manifest themselves in your everyday life.

Applied Positive Psychology

Here are the 5 ways positive affirmations manifest in life – applied positive psychology:

1. Confidence

Positive affirmations help give you new confidence about yourself and your life. When you believe that you are a good person and worthy of respect and love, you feel more confident about not only yourself but also about the impact that you make every day.

You may be more upbeat when speaking to others and exhibit more genuine emotions toward friends, family members, and even strangers. You also may seek out interactions instead of hiding from them entirely. This newfound confidence may even allow you to make new friends or perhaps establish more meaningful and productive romantic relationships.

2. Better Decision Making

When you positively affirm what you believe about yourself and your everyday life, you will begin making better decisions. When you thought negatively, you may have had little regard for your own happiness and well-being.

However, when you welcome and accept positive affirmations, you may take the time to think things through and make choices that are in your own best interests. You may see the wisdom in advocating for yourself and what is best for your future. You also may do so without second guessing yourself or feeling guilty about putting yourself first for once.

3. New Friendships

Positive affirmations also manifest themselves in the forging of new friendships. When you think of yourself in a positive light, you realize that you are worthy of friends who have the highest level of affection and respect for you. You want to be around people who will treat you well and reaffirm the belief that you are a good and worthy person.

Forging new friendships can be vital to changing the manner in which you live your life. By getting rid of bad influences, you pave the way for making your own future better and avoiding thought processes that contributed to self-loathing and negative behavior in the past. Your new friends will become more valuable and positive assets to you and your life going forward.

4. Re-evaluation of Family Ties

The old adage says that you can pick your friends but not your family. In reality, you do have some power over to what degree you associate with family members who may be a bad influence on you.

If you have relatives that put you down or take advantage of you, it is not out of the question to reevaluate how much time you want to spend with them. The positive affirmations that you adopt for your life give you the power and the confidence to rethink those relationships and adjust them accordingly.

5. Mentoring Opportunities

Finally, positive affirmations can manifest themselves in your life by giving you the opportunity to become a mentor to someone else. Overcoming your own self-loathing, doubt, and negativity gives you the experience you need to understand where others in your former position are coming from and in what direction they need to go to change their own lives.

As with many people in your situation who have forged new paths for the future, you have valuable insight that even the most skilled and highly trained therapist or counselor does not possess. Who better to mentor someone down on his or her luck than you?

Seeing the positive impact you make on someone’s life likewise can be a manifestation of positive affirmations in your own. As you rebuild your own future, you should welcome the chance to pay forward what you have learned about why positive affirmations are vital to your everyday life.

Your point of view plays a key role in the way you act, believe, and live. Develop a routine that incorporates positive affirmations and you will begin to see these five benefits manifest themselves in your life.

Positive Affirmations To Appreciate Men

appreciate menToday it’s the celebration called “Dragobete” in my country. To celebrate this day I decided to write an article with positive affirmations to appreciate men.

Dragobete is a traditional Romanian holiday celebrated on February 24. Dragobete was the son of Baba Dochia, which stands for the main character in the pagan myth related to spring arrival and the end of the harsh winter. Due to his endless kindness, he was chosen – according to some sources, by Virgin Mary – to be the Guardian of Love. The day is particularly known as “the day when the birds are betrothed”. It is around this time that the birds begin to build their nests and mate. On this day, considered locally the first day of spring, boys and girls gather vernal flowers and sing together. Those who take part in Dragobete customs are supposed to be protected from illness, especially fevers, for the rest of the year. If the weather allows, girls and boys pick snowdrops or other early spring plants for the person they are courting. In the countryside, there is an old tradition with girls and boys going into the woods to pick flowers. When they return home, the traditions says that boys were running after girls to kiss them. If the girl liked the boy she lets him kiss her. There is a saying in Romania that makes a lot of sense regarding this: “Dragobete kisses the girls”.

Opportunity for joy and well-being, Dragobetele is one of the most beautiful ancient customs of the Romanian people. It is also mandatory that Dragobete men be in cordial relations with females. Men are not allowed to annoy women nor to engage in a quarrel, otherwise, they will have an unlucky spring and a year not favorable. In general, both boys and girls have a duty to rejoice in this day so that they can enjoy the love with the opposite sex the entire year. I write this article with positive affirmations to appreciate men with the intention to enjoy Love with the opposite sex, men in my case, the entire year. Therefore here are the positive affirmations to appreciate men that I thought and that I share with you.

Positive Affirmations To Appreciate Men

I appreciate my father from all my heart. I appreciate my father for conceiving me and providing for me in so many ways, so many years. Thank you, father.

I appreciate my brother with all the Love I am capable of. I appreciate my brother for the joy he brought into my life, so many years, in so many moments. Brother thank you for being the person that makes me laugh the most in this life. You made me laugh so many times, healing my soul and therefore also healing my body.

I appreciate all men that live today on the Planet Earth. I appreciate all men that have ever lived from the beginning of time and until now. Thank you for your presence, work, efforts, and energy. You are Loved. You are all Loved.

As Rori Raye says and I agree with her statement:

“The truth is  – men are loyal, brave and strong. Men have a tremendous capacity to love, commit, nurture, cherish, understand, support and be there for us.”

I thank you for your thinking. I thank you for your strength. I respect you for your thinking. I respect you for your strength.

I appreciate all men that ever lived and the ones that are alive now, for the time and efforts they put in handling things and cherishing the feelings of the people around them.

I respect the masculine energy of a man for the amazing ability to organize, figure things out, achieving things, winning victories.

I appreciate and respect all the actions of men that they did, do and will do.

I send gratitude into the Universe for all the battles that every man fought in. I respect men for all the battles that they took, take or will take in the future.

It is said that as a woman you should welcome a man as if he was in a war the entire day. It is said that a man feels every day like he is in a war, he feels like he is in a constant battle. From this point of view, the woman should welcome the man like the Sunshine and show him that there is Light, Ease and Joy, besides war, battles, and struggle.

Therefore I send from my heart appreciation and gratitude for all the wars that men fought in. I send from my heart Light and Ease for all the battles and struggle that all men have gone, are going and will go through.

I forgive masculine energy for everything. I forgive masculine energy for every situation where it was considered or believed that it was hurting the feminine energy. There is much Love between the two. We love each other dearly.

Dear man, I really appreciate you. Thank you for listening so many times to me. Thank you for making me feel loved in so many moments. Thank you for being my protector. Thank you for being my provider. Thank you for taking good care of me. Thank you for making me happy. Thank you for making me laugh so many times.

Dear man, you are full of energy. You are overflowing with joy. You can achieve greatness. You can win your victory. Your body is healthy. Your mind is brilliant. Your soul is tranquil. I believe you can do anything. Everything that is happening now is happening for your ultimate goal. You love and accept yourself for who you are. You forgive those who have harmed you in the past and detach peacefully from them. Your ability to conquer your challenges is limitless. Your potential to succeed is infinite.

I am proud of you. I respect, trust, support and appreciate you. You are blessed.

It is my strong belief that men make our life more beautiful, more alive, more full. Men bring more fullness into our lives.

Time Is An Illusion Science Proves Without Memory There Is No Time

time is an illusionScience finally proves that time is an illusion and that without memory there is no time. Time is just memory stored in space. Our own memory is not stored in our brain, it is stored in space and our brain is just connected with that place in space.

But how this discovery that time is an illusion impacts our lives, perception of reality and our thinking?

The scientific discovery that time is an illusion benefits me in more ways. I thought about it and I reached five conclusions that I consider will ease life and improve well-being.

1. Live in the Present

If time is an illusion, doesn’t exist and it’s just a memory, why re-living memories. And I am refering here at bad memories. The notion of forgetting and forgiving takes another form, easier. Forgetting and forgiving means just not focusing anymore on those hurting memories. Let them be, there are just a bunch of information stored somewhere in space, anyway.

2. Jump to Positivity

If time is an illusion, doesn’t exist, then there is no need for the notion of “going through time”. Therefore, there is no need for so much learning through the hard ways. You can just jump through time, and because there is no time, it actually is… jumping through memories.

You can connect to the memories of someone positive that was generous enough to share it publicly with the world, and jump into the ocean of good feelings and emotions. For example, start with this list of positive words. This list of beautiful words is also a list of positive feelings and emotions. Pick a positive word and look through the vast internet for the meaning and the articles written about it. In this way, you will actually jump in the good, nice, inspiring and happy memories of someone else. And just like that, you are connected with 3-4 happy consciousness (memories) of 3-4 positive people. You will be happier.

3. Connect with Positive Memories

If time is memory stored not in our brain, but in space, then we can randomly connect with any positive memory that we want. We could label certain memories as happy memories and we could just draw that positive energy from our memories by focusing on the label. This is where gratitude helps us. If we label each day 2-3 things that make us happy then it will be easier for us to remember it in the future. Because when we are grateful today, we are actually labeling memories as happy memories. We are improving our future well-being and diminish the time it takes to keep alive and even restore our happiness.

4. Release Fear of the Subconscious Mind

If time is memory stored in space, then the subconscious mind could be all these memories stored in space, by us and by everyone. This is not frightening, it is actually more relieving if you look from another point of view. Release the fear of the subconscious mind that so many people feel… and try to change with many development programs. I am not against personal development. I just want to underline the importance of what you focus on in your personal development. Ask yourself: On what energy and consciousness are you focusing? Does it make you happy? Is it fun? Do you feel love when you learn or train yourself? My opinion is that we came here on Earth to have a lot of love and fun. And when you are not feeling happy, that is a clue to do something else.

I see a lot of people working so hard to change their subconscious mind. But memory can not be changed, you can just disconnect from that memory and connect with another memory… maybe with the memory when you have gone back in time and changed your own memory. But this is not true, this is just you creating another story for yourself, another memory. The old memory is well long behind you already stored in space. Yes, this is one way to do it, to take the old hurting memory, keep it close to you but rewire it into a more empowering story. But the hurting memory will still be close to you, hurting you.

There is another way, a new way. Disconnect from the old hurting memory and live in the present. Be grateful for what happens today, for the memories you are creating today. Connect with positivity all around the world, connect with lighter and shorter ways of doing things.

5. Release Lack of Time and Regain Freedom

If time is memory, you can release time by releasing memories. Once a month I do a reflection which can be considered a meditation but it’s more like a connection with the empty space. I call it the release-connect technique. I release memories, good or bad and I connect with empty space. In this way, I diminish my attachment to various memories (good or bad) and make space for new memories to unfold. You can try it also. How do I do it?

I take some moments alone and start to picture that I am a locomotive carrying a lot of wagons behind me. Then I picture myself going in space where I can float. And the wagons slowly distance themselves from me floating away from me. They are not destroyed, they just safely float away from me with all the loads and burdens that they have. I trust that they are stored by the Universe somewhere and labeled properly. Then I just imagine myself a simple locomotive floating in space, being so light and free of everything. This is how I get my complete freedom.

This week’s positive word is RELAX

 This week’s positive word is

RELAX

By Victoria J.Brown

I remember I was well into the New Year, Christmas felt like a long distance memory and I noticed that the last thing on many people’s minds is relaxation. I understand that maybe Holidays period is very busy, so there’s not much relaxing going on. Then the new year has started and most people are back to rushing from one place to another, appointments, meetings, deadlines … I’m definitely one for advising that you set yourself goals and targets, but I believe in relaxing too. Relaxing helps us focus, truly focus on where we are and what we need to do. It helps to eliminate that fuzzy fog that surrounds many minds as they sleepwalk through life day in, day out.

RELAX - PICTURE 1

Taking time out to assess and soothe your body and soul is the key to moving forward.

How many times have you heard people saying: “I haven’t got time …” These are the people who need to relax more than most.

RELAX - PICTURE 2

So if you’re one of those people who feels the need to keep moving, there’s no time for chilling … ask yourself how fast are you actually moving forward? If you feel you simply CAN’T STOP! Even the thought stresses you out. Then you are probably that person that needs to relax.

Here’s a little task for you … start writing a journal, look back over it week by week and see how fast you’re moving. While writing your journal put some feelings, thoughts, and emotions into your writing, turn your writing into a relaxation technique. It’s an amazing method. If you do this, you’re still ‘working’ as you’re writing down your achievements, but at the same time, you are actually allowing yourself to put things into perspective.

So remember, when you are relaxing, you are not being lazy, you are not wasting time … the exact opposite … you are re-fuelling your mind, body, and soul.
