One of my biggest tools in my Mental Health Tool Belt is my constant use of affirmations and mantras to help ground me. When you’re nervous system is in high alert, you’re experiencing anxiety, maybe on your way to panic attack territory, reciting affirmations and mantras can help reprogram the subconscious mind and encourages us to believe certain things about ourselves or about the world and our place within it.
In a time were you are experiencing pregnancy in isolation and social distancing visualization and positive thinking practices will help you stay calm and stress free in moments that want to pull you in another direction.
Practicing affirmations and mantras when you are at a neutral energy will be important as you will be better equip to implement these during times of struggle.
When I was on the delivery bed almost two years ago about to birth my son, I got out my cell phone and started reciting my grounding mantra. As soon as the nurse said I was to start pushing and this was happening I felt my mind wander and starting to spiral and as soon as I started saying my mantra and took deep breaths it helped me find that inner strength and confidence in knowing that my body wouldn’t let me down, that I was safe and doing to do exactly what I needed to do in the next however many minutes to meet my son for the first time. It was a beautiful and magical moment of empowerment that I did for myself!
