7 Affirmations to Practice When You Feel Anxious

Our greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another. -William James

Affirmations are a set of words that carry positive vibrations. Repeating them again and again tricks the mind into believing them. And once the mind believes it, we become what we affirm. 

We feel anxious when we worry about the future, when we do not get answers to our questions, and when we feel clueless about the next step. We get lost in the illusion that we have to figure everything all at once. Life is a Journey and there is a Divine Intelligence watching over us. That Higher Power makes sure the sun rises each day and seasons change annually. We do not have to figure everything at once. We do not have to foresee our future and feel restless. We just need to live in the present moment with awareness. 

During the current pandemic times, when uncertainty prevails everywhere, most of us are struggling with anxious thoughts. But as William James said, we always have the ability to choose one thought over another. This is how we can defeat stress and anxiety. 

Affirmations are beautiful tools that allow us to choose healthy and positive thoughts. The right thoughts make us feel harmonious, healthy, peaceful, and happy. 

Here are 7 beautiful and powerful affirmations that you can practice when you feel anxious:

1. I love and approve of myself. I trust the process of life. I am safe. 

2. Everything I need comes to me in the perfect time, space, and sequence. 

3. When one door closes, another door opens. I am willing to change and to grow.

4. I am the Creator of my Destiny. I am the Creator of my every thought, feeling, word, and action. 

5. I am always protected by the Universe. I can manifest everything that I desire. I am a magnet for miracles and blessings. 

6. Everything I need to know gets revealed to me at the right time. 

7. I prosper wherever I turn. All is well in my world!

These affirmations will empower you mentally and emotionally. These words, filled with positive vibrations will convert your anxiety into serenity. You can check out Louisa Hay's book "Heart Thoughts" for more beautiful affirmations. 

Every time a negative thought enters your mind, consciously think 3 positive thoughts or practice 3 affirmations. That's how you can change the script easily! 

Always remember that you are the Creator of your Thoughts. Your Mind is a great machine and it is you who controls your Mind.
