Positive Thinking and Chronic Disease

I am happy, I am healthy, I am beautiful!I had Fibromyalgia for 5 years, beginning at age 40. It wasn’t fun. It was painful and depressing. I was fortunate when a wise, kind friend told me to take a personal development training course. I guess she could see that I needed some personal development. I enrolled in Impact Training in Salt Lake City. That’s where I learned about positive thinking and positive affirmations. I decided to try my new skill for 30 days. So several times every day, I looked in the mirror and said, “I am happy, I am healthy, I am beautiful.” Well, I was certainly not any of those things, but I kept at it. After a few days I got a little bored so I added some feeling to it, and made some funny faces to entertain myself as I spoke into the mirror. I learned later that adding positive emotions to affirmations gives them an extra punch. As the days turned into weeks, a transformation took place. At the end of my 30-day affirmation project I looked into the mirror and saw looking back at me a woman who was happy, healthy and beautiful. About a month later I was symptom-free. Now, most people say you cannot recover from Fibromyalgia, but I did. And I feel great.

  1. I love it! This is awesome, Glenda. I have heard this before, but not yet tried it. I do agree that when we put feeling, emotion, and belief behind it (instead of just the words uttered aloud) we are much more likely to bring what we want into our grasp. I am going to try this, Glenda. Thank you so much! Great post… I will share along. Have a healthy day, Elizabeth
