Some Thoughts for Today
Affirmations for Healing and Comfort
My family was very lucky and the Hurricane passed without incident. After watching the news I soon learned that not at all people were as lucky as I. I am happy to say that I have power and am online and ready to write. My thoughts today go out out to those who need special healing and comfort due to the impact of Hurricane Sandy. At the same time we all are in need in of healing and consolation at some point in our lives. Some of us are more sensitive than others and require comforting words more often. Some of us live lives that are more volatile or put at risk for hurt or pain and therefore we are in need of consoling more frequently. Some of us are chronically ill or have loved ones who are sick and therefore we are in need of healing- physically and emotionally. While others of us have stronger dispositions, life situations that make us less vulnerable, or have been blessed enough not to be stricken by illness and therefore don't find ourselves needing healing or comfort as often as others. But no one exists in perfect world. None of us are immune to hurt or sickness. There comes a time when we all need healing and comfort. The source of these can come in a

variety of forms- prayer, friends, songs, pets, family, a warm bath, a certain movie- but all work their magic in special way to help us through difficult times. Today I'd like to offer another source of healing and comfort, affirmations, in the hopes that they will help us in dealing with whatever hardship we are currently struggling with at the moment. The first two affirmations I would like to share with you pertain to healing and can be applied to the body, mind, and soul-
I give myself all the healing thoughts I deserve.
With every breath I intake the healing powers of the universe and bring more and more well-being into my life.
I chose these two affirmations because they reflect very different positions. The first recognizes that ourselves and our thoughts can be sources of healing. The second acknowledges the healing powers that surround us within the universe. Separately both sources have the ability to guide us toward health and well-being. But perhaps the sources are infinitely more powerful if we are able to combine them. For example consider this hybrid affirmation-
I am able to strengthen my health and well-being by giving myself healing thoughts and embracing the healing powers of the universe that I am deserving of.
The more resources we take advantage of the better off we will be. Take advantage of your own abilities but don't neglect the resources that the universe has to offer- sunshine, family, positive energy- that can help you to heal.
The next affirmation relates to consolation and comfort through words of compassion and understanding-
Everyone in the world, myself included, is deserving of compassion and understanding.
This affirmation closely ties to the first healing affirmation that mentions being deserving of our own healing thoughts. I chose both in order to convey a very specific and important message: We are deserving. We deserve love, compassion, healing, and understanding both from ourselves as well as others. I often feel as if I don't deserve these things. I am not worthy. I am at fault. I am capable of giving love and comfort to others yet am so incapable of accepting it. I feel as if many of us struggle with embracing kindness and consolation when it is offered to me. But we deserve it as much as anyone else does. We deserve to receive love and comfort from others. But more importantly we are worthy of receiving this same love from ourselves. Today accept the help and kindness that people in your life are trying to offer you. But remember the power to heal and be comforted lies within you as well. If you cannot accept what others attempt to share with you their efforts are futile. You must be a willing recipient in order to receive. Look around you but look inside yourself as well. Let yourself be comforted, embrace the compassion that others show you, let yourself heal.
Remember you are deserving, you are worthy, your are lovable,
