Affirmations, we’ve all heard of them, but can they really help build a stronger relationship? You bet they can, and here’s an easy way to do it. Each week we’ll share an affirmation on the Caffection! Married To My Best Friend website (stay tuned for launch details) and a tool for its use. Until then, a handwritten note that says I love my mate will work, fold it & keep it in your pocket. Pull it out, or touch it at least 3 times a day, silently repeat the affirmation and send a blessing to your mate.
There are other times your affirmations can come in handy. When negative people are unavoidably in our environment and become critical or begin to complain, let that trigger your brain to remember the affirmation in your pocket. You may also want to add a mutual goal on the back to focus on as well. Ours is: Our focus is creating MTMBF. We know many couples will ‘get’ caffected. Refuse to get sucked into the negative wave of emotion by shifting your focus to a positive: your mate and your mutual goal. When you’re back together, share how many times that day you had to do this mental state change. You’ll be amazed at how often you’ll have the opportunity to flip your attention to what your focus in life is. Soon this intimate ritual will become second nature. This practice is very bonding, and a great way to build CAFFECTION! When it sends a spark of positive energy through your body; SMILE. People may look at you strange, Let them wonder. You know. No need to explain, you’re married to your best friend. Everyone should have a love like this!
