An affirmation is a short and powerful statement that you say to yourself in order to reinforce your beliefs and behavior. For instance, if you repeat “I am worthy” to yourself in the mirror every morning, you’re better equipped to start your days from a place of confidence and empowerment.
And, just like affirmations can help you access sentiments and attitudes for self-improvement and self-love, they can also function as a vehicle to help you release that which doesn’t serve you. Shower affirmations can help you cleanse yourself of unwanted energy (as the water is literally cleansing you).
What is an Afformation? Afformations are defined as positive, empowering Self-Talk in question form. Afformations are based on the principle that the subconscious mind responds more effectively to questions than to statements.
A guiding reason showers are a great and powerful place for an affirmation practice is because they present an opportunity to “reset” our mind, says Jerico Mandybur, creativity coach and author of Daily Oracle: Seek Answers from Your Higher Self. In addition to helping us snap out of whatever funk we may be feeling or wake ourselves up to start a fresh day or any other transformative goal, showers require us to be present in that moment, and reciting shower affirmations gives us the opportunity to really engage with the now instead of mulling over the past. “Whether or not you believe in energy in the magical sense, we can all benefit from carving out time in our day to create a container in which we can slow down and embrace the present moment,” says Mandybur.
Here are 3 Affirmations & Afformations designed to make your shower a transformarming experience.
“Why is my shower so purifying to me?”
“I charge this water with cleansing and purification.”
Sending your energy to the water with this affirmation can help you feel less stressed and anxious because you’re inviting the water, by way of your shower affirmations, to help you reach a more pure state of mind.
“Why Do I Let Myself BE Who I Really Am?
“May this water wash away anything that isn’t serving me.”
Reflect on people in your life who you’ve identified as not serving you. Perhaps it’s a friend who you feel isn’t there for you in the same way that you are there for them.
“Why Am I So Calm and At Peace?
“I love and thank my body for everything it does for me.”
We suggest saying this affirmation as you scrub yourself clean so that you have a chance to engage with your entire body and make this affirmation more powerful.
“Why Do I Easily Let Go of Emotions I Don’t Really Need?”
“I am safe and sovereign right now.”
Being intentional [or sovereign] in any part of our life is extremely empowering and peace-inducing,” says Benson, who suggests changing your perspective surrounding showering. “Imagine your shower time is very simply a cleansing [practice] that releases your day and everyone else’s expectations or energies and returns you home to yourself.
