What is an Affirmation? An affirmation is a declaration that something is true. When affirmations are used over time they can be referred to as a practice or daily prayer with intention of a positive outcome – and that includes for battling fertility and infertility.
I was working the other day pouring over all of the woes of infertility and POP, an affirmation came into my mind. It was- Thank you womb for hugging, nourishing and protecting my sons for their first months of life! All of this daily suffering made me think of what I am grateful for. This one affirmation led me to think about how much I use affirmations daily in my own life, to help transform negative views I have about myself and our world. I have a calendar from Sarah Love Creations on my bathroom wall that has small daily affirmations, I keep it by the mirror so that each new day is started off on a positive thought.
I urge all of you to take the time to create an affirmation for your fertility journey. It can be simple, just a word, thought, prayer, a line of your favorite song. The only requirements are that you not use any negative words. Words such as can’t, someday, no, won’t, not, etc.
I have put together some affirmations for fertility. Feel free to use them and to submit some of your own! You have the power to change your present circumstances!
When using an affirmation, take a small amount of time, just a long moment to center yourself, take a few calm breaths and really take the affirmation into you. Become the affirmation. The Women and Men titles are just suggestions, they can be interchanged where appropriate.
