These healing affirmations for self love are a reminder that the trauma you experienced doesn’t have to define you. These affirmations are to remind you of who you really are and will give you healthy boost of self esteem and positivity.

Healing may not be so much about getting better, as about letting go of everything that isn’t you – all of the expectations, all of the beliefs – and becoming who you are.

– Rachel Naomi Remen.

Can Affirmations Heal Trauma?

Affirmations are powerful statements that can have a huge positive effect on trauma survivors. Trauma survivors can have a negative internal dialogue, repeating healing affirmations daily will plant new seeds in your subconscious that will inevitably shift your self talk from negative to positive.

How To Use Affirmations For Self Love & Healing

Set a daily reminder

Set aside five to ten minutes each day to focus on repeating your chosen affirmation out loud while meditating or doing a mindful activity. You can use self love wallpapers in your living space to serve as a constant reminder or better yet use a reminder app that sends you an affirmation every hour.

Use Visualisation

Visualisation helps you create the reality you want faster. If you can imagine it you increase your chances of making it happen. Start by creating a visualisation book or a vision board to make visualising your highest self easier.

Visualisation is more effective when used with emotions, choose affirmations that resonate with you to make sure your emotions are exciting, positive and full of love for yourself.

Use the right language

Be sure to use words like ‘I am’, ‘I have’, you want to avoid using ‘I don’t’ or ‘I am not’. For example, instead of saying ‘I don’t have anxiety’, try saying I am calm or I am safe. Notice how the words I use are positive and are focused on everything that I want. I wouldn’t use the word ‘anxiety’ as that is not what I want.

Another aspect of language is body language. Use reaffirming body language that aids in your belief as you repeat healing affirmations. A hand on your chest, fist in the air, chest pounding or a thumbs up, whatever makes you believe!

Why Self Love Is So Difficult?

Self Love can be difficult because we are taught that who we are is not is good enough. And so we spend a huge portion of our lives living in self hate, chasing perfection and wanting to be anyone else but ourselves. Ironically, we seek out acceptance and validation from people who aren’t capable of love, further confirming our feelings of unlovableness.

Affirmation Mantras To Put Yourself First

I am deserving of all my needs and desires

I am truly free to be my authentic self

It is safe to be free and happy

The more I live my life in alignment, the more abundance, love and joy flows to me

I am worth the investment in myself

I am in the driver’s seat of my life

How Can I Practise Self Love?

Self Love is the action that you take towards your self. Key word ACTION. You can’t say you love yourself but treat yourself like crap. Self love is the effect of practising self care. Practising self care is empowering because it comes from a place of acceptance as opposed to fixing yourself. A good place to start would be knowing the benefits of self love or the 17 self love tips on learning to love yourself.
