Affirmation: My mind is like a garden that needs careful tending.

“Life is one big road with lots of signs. So when you riding through the ruts, don’t complicate your mind. Flee from hate, mischief and jealousy. Don’t bury your thoughts, put your vision to reality. Wake Up and Live!
Bob Marley
Your mind is a very powerful tool that you can use to change your world – if used correctly. This affirmations are intended to help you to not just realise how powerful your mind is, but it will help you treasure it and use it right for your benefit. Be very mindful of your mind and stop putting garbage in!!

Affirmation: My mind is like a garden that needs careful tending.

Diligent gardening is rewarded with beautiful flowers and delicious vegetables. My mind requires the same kind of tending to remain happy and at peace. I work with the conditions I have at hand. Some spots are sunnier than others. Different plants thrive in different zones. Skillful responses enable me to succeed in a variety of environments.

I plant annuals and perennials. Some practices lead to short term beauty and others create lasting endowments. I celebrate both.

Just as plants set down roots, my mind also needs to feel secure and supported. I regard myself with compassion.

Weeding removes obstructions. I clear away weeds, as well as rocks and debris to make room for my plants. To enable positive thoughts, I say goodbye to distractions and grudges.

I prune on a regular basis. I trim the rough edges and prevent clutter. I act quickly to head off bad habits. I refine my performance all the time. I design paths. Walkways provide a sense of order. They lead me from one stage to the next. They help me to focus on my vision.

Everything needs nourishment. Water and food promote growth. I keep my mind in top shape with meaningful work and sufficient relaxation. I develop my talents and get plenty of sleep.

Today, I cultivate the garden of my mind. I invite friends over. I want butterflies and my loved ones to share in my garden. I look forward to a harvest of joy and contentment.

Self-reflection – ask yourself these questions:

  1. What methods can I use to tend to my mind?
  2. How does caring for my mind enhance my life?
  3. What are some signs that my mind needs more attention and nurturing?

    Lately I have been experiencing transformative change at the mental level, and while this is yet to materialize physically, I am glad that I can be able to realign my thoughts with what I want. It is indeed true what you say, the mind requires careful tending.

      Hi Emma

      It’s very nice to have you here! When we guard our hearts such that we only allow positive things in then the results will be very obvious in no time – a better and happier self. Everything that we do is always processed in the mind first and it is what we have in our mind that will be used for the processing. Therefore if you align your thoughts with what you want, nature has a way of bring it to you with patient on your side.

      Here is wishing you all the best, Emma!
