Affirmations are a powerful and healing tool.

An affirmation is a positive statement that can deepen our healing and engender courage, self-love, hope, and much more. These statements are spoken or thought in the first person, in the present tense, as if the reality we are visualizing has already manifested.

Regarding a cancer diagnosis, the following affirmations may be useful:

  • I am filled with healing energy.
  • I look for the hidden gifts and life lessons in my diagnosis.
  • I am breathing in cleansing air and breathing out all tension, and all that which no longer serves me.
  • I honor my body and my journey.
  • I allow myself time to reflect and to experience all emotions surrounding my diagnosis. I channel these emotions in a direction that helps me heal on every level.
  • I give thanks for all that is.
  • I have gifts to bring to this world, to those I love, and to my own journey.
  • I radiate positive energy, for my own healing and for all those in my life.
  • I am motivated, courageous and strong, even on the most difficult days.
  • I surround myself with positive people, including those on my medical team.
  • I give myself permission to not engage or give energy to those who are negative and who do not support my healing journey.
  • I give myself permission to weep, breathe deeply, and take time for my own healing rituals.
  • I envision the best possible outcome.

One way to maximize the power of these affirmations is to lie down between two warm and fluffy comforters, as if you are floating on a lotus blossom. Feel your body begin to relax, and allow the positive messages to wash over you.
