Strength and Stability.
Strength/Stability – Powerful words that you can use as an affirmation or as a supportive and mindful reminder that you can do anything you set your mind to it.
These are two of my favourite words and ones I find most empowering. I have students who use them every day to centre and balance themselves. Others use the words when they have to go into meetings or give presentations. In class, we use them just as a straightforward affirmation or sometimes incorporate a visualisation with them.
Both words can lead you to Grounding yourself for the task ahead – for more on grounding follow
For the affirmation,
On the in breath hear the word STRENGTH in your mind as you fill the belly and pause, on the out breath hear the word STABILITY as you release slowly and just keep this going for a couple of minutes ‘feel’ the words as you say them. This will raise your confidence and energy – you can do whatever it is you need to do.
You might need to visualise the two words several times before embarking on what you are going to do.
