Examples of Healing Through Affirmations
To give you an idea of the possibilities, let’s explore a few examples in which affirmations can heal. These scenarios are fictional, but they do mirror actual accounts of self healing.
Abigail is a 24-year-old woman who is in her final year of grad school and will soon embark on the journey to find a job and establish a career. Although Abigail is an excellent student, she experiences crippling anxiety when she thinks of entering the workforce. This is because Abigail secretly feels inadequate and doubts her ability to perform in the real world at the level of her peers.
To try to resolve this problem, Abigail seeks help from a psychotherapist who specializes in Neuro-Linguistic Programming. This is a form of talk therapy that allows the patient to explore issues that they may have and use reframing and positive affirmations to rewire their responses to the identified problems.
By delving into her fears, Abigail discovers that the root of her anxiety stems from the fact that her mother never encouraged her as a child. In fact, she was quite demeaning toward Abigail and made her feel as if she was not as intelligent or pretty as other children. This caused Abigail to internalize a sense of insecurity and inadequacy that followed her into her adult life.
To help Abigail counteract this internal programming, the therapist employed affirmations, which she had Abigail repeat during their consultations, as well as on her own throughout the day. The affirmations focused on the fact that Abigail was, in fact, intelligent, worthy, and capable of success. Over time, the old mental programming was released and Abigail was able to see a new version of herself, which gave her the confidence to move forward in her professional life.

At a loss as to how he can undo the damage, and frustrated with traditional diet and exercise plans, Robert turns to healing affirmations at the suggestion of a friend.As part of his healing journey, Robert’s friend suggests that he initially keep a journal to clear his head, identify the root cause of his weight gain, and clearly plot out a desired end goal.
