  • How to develop good affirmation?
    By Health Blog on April 19, 2010 | No Comments  Comments

    Developing good affirmation is very important in life and getting success in your life. In order to affect the subconscious, affirmations should follow these guidelines.

    good affirmation

    good affirmation

    Present form

    The first thing to remember is that it must be in the present form. As long as you desire a particular action to achieve a particular goal, then there will always be a need to influence your subconscious mind. And if you want to make your affirmation effective, there is no better time to start and start influencing the subconscious through your positive affirmation than “now”.

    Belief that the desire is already a reality

    Another tip to developing good affirmation is a belief that what you aim for and what you wish to do is something that has already been accomplished. Experts believe that people saying “I am becoming happy” is more effective as this conveys the message that you are already seeing the positive results of your affirmations.

    Positive

    The affirmation must be positive and throws away from any negative note. Creating an affirmation with the words “I am safe” is believed to be more effective than saying the words “I am not scared”. The presence of the negative word “not” may affect your attitude and behavior negatively. Thus, that there is no better way to use a positive affirmation by staying positive all the time. It is also believed that the word “scared” may grab your attention more and make you think about the negative thought of not being safe often.

    Everyday language

    It is best to come up with a positive affirmation that fits your language style. It means that you must draft an affirmation that uses common words or terms characteristic of the language that you normally use. One important element of positive affirmation is repetition. One cannot repeat a statement which is not common or easy to utter. Instead of including difficult words, it is best for you to keep your affirmation simple and brief so that it is easily absorbed by the subconscious. Difficult words may be pleasant and attractive to hear but the very purpose of a good affirmation is not to impress anyone but rather to help you easily utter it, remember it, and practice it everyday. An action is expected to be the end-point of a positive affirmation. A simple understanding and verbalization of the affirmation would lead to the desired action.

    Avoid using too many words

    The affirmation must consist of simple words and it must be phrased simply. A complicated phrasing would make it difficult for you to utter the affirmation repetitively. The principle lies on the basic tenet that the subconscious mind must be exposed to the repeated affirmation so that this portion of the mind will be a venue from which the desire will come from.

    Your affirmation must be specific and shows the exact action reaction you are aiming to achieve. It may convey a particular feeling that you want to feel, like a longing to feel happy, or to feel energetic, active, or feel in love. It may also be in the form of a specific action like your desire to pass an examination, find the right person, or it can even be as simple as reaching a certain destination safely.

    By Health Blog on April 19, 2010 | 3 Comments3 Comments  Comments

    Have you tried psyching yourself up to getting that to-die-for contract that your boss wanted so badly? Or how about talking to yourself repeatedly and telling yourself that you can pass that difficult exam?

    Some people are not fully aware that positive affirmation works. Unknowingly, they are already practicing it in their daily life and are already repeating their daily affirmation to help set their minds into achieving what they want to accomplish. But does affirmation really work? The answer is a definite yes and this can be attested to by people who have been previously afraid to try new grounds and yet they are now the masters of their fates. These people were once unsure of themselves and their capabilities and yet they were able to overcome their inhibitions and perceived limitations.

    Affirmation works because the words that are being repeated do not only convince the subconscious mind of what you can do but it helps you focus your mind on a certain goal or objective. The repeated words serve as a hypnosis tool that helps a person visualize the object of his want. It programs you into thinking, talking and doing the very thing which you want to achieve or to happen. By repeating your positive affirmation regularly you start to breathe and live what you wish for until it becomes real.

    Do not however expect affirmation to create miracles for you in one day. While some affirmations work fast, others take time to become realized depending on a lot of factors including your mindset. If you are bent on making it work for you, avoid negative thought because it combats the effects of positive affirmation. By focusing on positive thoughts you make way for the realization of positive affirmation. Believing in affirmation alone is the first step to making them come true.

  • How to know appendicitis?
    By Health Blog on August 22, 2009 | No Comments  Comments

    Appendicitis is one of the health problems that are having more chances of occurrence. This occurs similarly like a general stomach ache but lasts for the whole day. This is the only thing that makes it different from ordinary stomach ache but the problem that occurs is severe than anything and most of the times leads to death if we don’t solve the problem. Appendix is a vestigial organ in our body and this is one of the useless parts of our body but it creates the problems when it is filled with the unwanted material. The food we eat contains some unwanted material like metals which will not be digested in our stomach and all these kinds of materials settles in this appendix which lies at the end of our large intestine. When the undigested material content increases and when this appendix was completely filled then it bulges and creates the problem of appendicitis. The only solution to this problem is to remove this part as soon as possible otherwise if it bursts out then the person will die as all the poison in that appendix comes out.

    Here are the some of the signs of appendicitis:

    • The main sign is a steady pain in the belly that gets worse and worse.

    • When the person coughs, serious pain occurs in the belly.
    • When you press the abdomen and slowly releases, if we are getting acute pain while we are releasing then it’s probably appendicitis.
