The Power of Positive Thought
It seems now, more than ever, finding tools to manage stress levels and achieve inner peace is essential. Our busy lifestyles often require us to re-balance by finding the time for daily affirmations. This, in turn, can help us to remain focused, positive and productive. Pressures from work and family life can all add up. Whether you’re a business person, stay-at-home parent or a retiree, we all need a way to relax and recharge.
How can apps be used as spiritual tools? There are a number of options available for your iPhone or iPod Touch. The formats vary from card decks to perpetual calendars and spoken word apps. One advantage to apps is that you can conveniently take all of them with you at all times. Often, you can share single card affirmations by email with family and friends. Take for instance the scenario of a friend who may need your help. Whip out your iPhone, find the right card/message and then send them an affirmation to show your support and encouragement.
Many great teachers tell us that the key to success is to first visualize what you want. The second step is to actively manifest what you want to experience. Surround yourself at all times with tools that will help you realize your goals. Apps can help you create a positive, spiritual outlook on life. Look for apps that address personal growth, spiritual development and stress reduction and make them a part of your daily routine. Before you know it, they will play an integral role in balancing your life.
The power of positive thought means associating yourself with positive people, using positive words and discouraging negative thoughts. The universe responds to whatever you are offering and thinking. Although these thoughts and teachings are not new, apps make it possible for these resources to be accessible to a larger audience. In addition to convenience, apps are priced far less than their printed counterparts. Prices range from $1.99 to $4.99 for many apps. When you compare that to a traditional book, card deck or calendar, the price difference is substantial.
Self-empowerment authors, such as Louise L. Hay, Dr. Wayne W. Dyer, and Esther and Jerry Hicks have long recognized the trans-formative powers of positive thoughts and meditation. “Your thoughts create your life!” This is the message that Louise Hay has been teaching people throughout the world for more than 27 years. Hay’s teachings have found their way to the app market, including her best-selling Heal Your Body, A-Z app, where she offers suggestions of how to heal the body through the power of thought. You can look up specific health challenges and find the probable cause and the information you need to overcome it by creating a new thought pattern. By having the portable version with you, you can easily access this healing material at any time.
There are affirmations for forgiveness, job success, self-esteem, a stress-free life, empowerment, creativity, health, romance, wealth, inner peace and more. It’s amazing how repeating phrases such as “Be Immune to Others’ Opinions”, “Live in the Moment”, “I Dwell On Positive Thoughts” can have a positive impact on your daily outlook.
To further illustrate this point, here are few examples of card deck affirmations by Louise L. Hay that you’ll find in an app version.
Affirmations for Creativity — I direct my creative talents toward music, art, dance, writing — anything that gives me pleasure.
Affirmations for Forgiveness — Everyone in my life has something to teach me. We have a purpose in being together.
Affirmations for Health — Healing happens! I get my mind out of the way and allow the intelligence of my body to do its healing work naturally.
The power of the spoken word is evident in Dr. Wayne W. Dyer’s audio collection of apps, another example of how to reinforce the message of finding transcendence through life lessons. So is Esther and Jerry Hicks’ Law of Attraction audio series based on the powerful Teachings of Abraham. Audio apps contain interactive features that make them more powerful than simply listening to a CD or tape. For example, you can mark certain tracks (affirmations) as favorites and put just those tracks on continuous loop for as long as you like. This is the perfect way to reinforce the messages of any given set of affirmations. Got that working for you now? Great, choose a new set of affirmations to work on.
Children and teens can also benefit from positive affirmations. What they learn at an early age can hopefully be carried over into adulthood. Look for apps on the market that are fun and address the concern of kids and young adults. They can be a useful tool encouraging self-esteem and acceptance of one’s self.
Positive thinking is a mental attitude. It can affect all aspects of your life — relationships, money, health, happiness, career. Recognize what is holding you back and then make a conscious effort to make the changes necessary in your daily life. Plus, be open to new possibilities. I hope the tools outlined above will assist you on your spiritual quest to live a joy-filled life.
