If you are like many of us, you think you have a chatter box in your head. This part of you keeps up a great conversation at the less than conscious level, and is either encouraging and positive or critical and negative. If you find that your internal dialogue is less than resourceful for your well-being, it’s time to take charge of it and begin to have more self-healing thoughts.
If you are like me, you can be off and running on a thought process and start making decisions based on it in no time at all. We decide that certain experiences have a specific meaning, and for many of us, it can be self-deprecating. There are a few of you out there that have continued through life wondering things like:
What did I do wrong?
Why do bad things happen to me?
I must deserve this.
I remember a time in my life when I was so steeped in self-doubt and worry that when the phone rang, my first thought was that someone was calling me to tell me I did something wrong. I would start shaking while the phone was ringing! Now, consciously we can see that a thought process like that is not an effective way to live. But, the subconscious mind can be programmed to think this way based on past experiences. At some point in my life, I felt to blame for things gone awry and it began to affect the way I viewed life overall. If we let it run without noticing it, like I was, it will continue to bash us down and bleed into other aspects of our lives and relationships. It did for me. Until I noticed them.
Take control of these thoughts. It’s easy. You do not have to make this a project with a list and steps and a process. You simply allow that noticing part of yourself to engage. You do not have to know why you developed this process in a negative way – the process of thinking that you are seeing is just not working. Instead, the illumination of it makes obvious its fallacies and you can then take action to correct your thinking.
At first, journaling self-healing statements and repeating them out loud can help. You will soon find yourself correcting yourself and rephrasing your thinking in your head. Pay attention. That is all you need to do.
If you are at a loss for what healing thoughts to repeat to yourself, here are seven powerful self-healing affirmations from Deepak Chopra. You can read more about them here: chopra-7-affirmations-for-self-healing

Speak these healing words to yourself today. Find yourself in front of the mirror, smiling at your beautiful self, and send healing thoughts. Create the intention that your words heal and speak them out loud while looking in your eyes. Some people balk at this idea, looking away, avoiding their own eyes. This time, allow yourself to feel discomfort and remain engaged and connected. Cry if you need to. Be silly and laugh if it breaks the tension. Just do it!
