Inhale Peace, Exhale Worry
How do you speak to yourself when you feel worried or anxious? What about when you’re feeling uneasy about something that’s happened in the past or may happen in the future? How do you respond to uncertainty and doubt?
Where does your mind go when everything in your external world begins to feel messy, scattered, and out of control?
In tense and anxious moments, it’s easy to get lost in your own troublesome thoughts. One negative thought leads to another, which leads to another, sending you down a rabbit hole of persistent worries and fear. Often, your brain does this to protect itself. Maybe you don’t want to get your hopes up too much, and you want to protect your heart in case things don’t work out the way you hope.
If you’ve ever felt this way before, know that it’s okay. Instead of criticizing yourself for having these thoughts, breathe love and compassion into your worries and fears.
And know this:
You are in control of your thoughts. You are the only one who can determine how you get to feel in every moment. There is nothing outside of you that can bring you the peace and serenity you’ve been looking for. Why? Because deep inner peace already exists within. It’s always there, even when you don’t see it. It isn’t about finding peace; it’s about releasing anything that obscures the peace, love, and tranquility that you have access to in every moment of every day.
It’s okay to feel anxious sometimes. Just know that you have the power to both acknowledge your worries and fears while still rising above anything that doesn’t serve or support your highest good.
Below, you’ll find 35 calming affirmations to help you in moments of worry, anxiety, and fear. These calming affirmations are designed to help you take back your power from anything that’s been weighing you down. When you’re feeling overwhelmed, let these calming affirmations soothe your spirit and bring you deep inner peace. Whenever you notice your brain straying to worrying and anxious thoughts, use these affirmations to gently bring you back to the present moment and help you cultivate a sense of serenity, stability, and strength.
