Total Cost: ONLY $3.00
Location: Wherever you are – Affirmations are sent daily to your personal email.
Guidelines: Each day for 30 days, you will receive an email with a positive affirmation. Your challenge is to set aside three minutes every day to sit quietly (or lie down) in meditation repeating the affirmation back to yourself. Don’t stop there though. Do your best to stick with your affirmations throughout the day to avoid sinking into complaints and self-self-sabotage the rest. When you catch yourself in negative thought pattern throughout the day; pause, take a breath, and repeat your daily affirmation.
Why Affirmations? Because I believe affirmations are one of the first steps in cultivating a meditation practice. One of the main excuses I hear all the time about why people don’t meditate is that their mind doesn’t stop talking and it is mostly negative thoughts. “How can I possibly sit in stillness with this mind,” they say. Affirmations have the power to help get you out of the negative mindset and into the positive, so you are able to rest easy inside yourself.
What is an Affirmation? An affirmation is really anything you say or think. Let me ask you this, "How many of your thoughts throughout your day reinforce negativity?" Thousands, most likely! You are probably saying things like:
“Ugh, I don’t want to go to work today.”
“I look so tired.”
“That won’t work”
“My house is so dirty.”
“So stupid, why did I do that.”
Negative self-talk is very damaging and reinforces negative beliefs you have about yourself, your abilities and the world around you. One thing I want to be clear on is that you are not bad person for thinking the way you do. However, it’s time to take responsibility for the health of your mind.
Sign up for the 30-Day Meditation Challenge, start to clean out the negative mind clutter, and discover you like hanging out with YOU. And soon enough, you’ll be making excuses to meditate.

Wellness Wednesdays with Dr. E
Join Dr. E each month to develop the tools to integrate all aspects of your 'psychE' while promoting harmony between your thoughts, physical body, true self, relationships, and emotions and energy.
