Healing for Verbal and Emotional Abuse –
3 Secrets to Effective Affirmations

Dr. King


by Dr. Jeanne King, Ph.D.



Affirmations, affirmations, affirmations. We’ve heard how important they are to the engineering of one’s life. We’ve heard how essential they are to manifesting one’s desires. Why do they work at times and fail to be realized at other times?

I believe it has more to do with how the affirmation is played in your mind’s eye that causes it to work or not...that causes the thought to transform into action/creation or not.

If you are a domestic abuse survivor you will want to know this little secret about the proper way to use affirmations to regain your emotional well-being after an abusive relationship.

If you infuse an affirmation into mind-harboring contradictory beliefs, your affirmation will not find its way into the foundation of your thinking mind. And let’s face it, domestic abuse survivors have their fill of negative degrading beliefs about themselves.

3 Keys to Opening Your Mind to Enhance the Effectiveness of Affirmations

1) Allow the mind to become settled and overflow with quietude before introducing your affirmation.

2) Introduce a releasing affirmation of the contradictory embedded belief before introducing the positive affirmation.

3) Practice with the subtle and come to know the impulse of your affirmations in their faintest most subtle form.

As you integrate these three keys into your affirmation practice, you will see how thought does indeed manifest your desires.

If you are a domestic abuse survivor, you know the importance of letting go of the destructive commentary that your former abuser showered upon you. And you can appreciate the benefits of recreating the blueprint of your mind.
