Affirmations have this peculiar property that the more we use them, the more useful they become. It depends entirely upon us as to how much use we can make of them.
Let us start with the affirmation that started it all.
"Every Day In Every Way I Am Getting Better And Better."
This famous affirmation was first given by Emile Coue in the nineteenth century. Coue is generally regarded as the father of modern day affirmations. It is said that he cured many patients using this one affirmation only.
There is an interesting story regarding this affirmation.
Many years ago, an old man was killed in a hit and run incident in New York. As the death was due to an accident, the police performed autopsy. When the doctors opened up the old man - he was around 80 years of age - they were stunned. They summoned the dead man's daughter and asked about his health before dying.
When she told them that he was perfectly healthy before dying, they could not believe their ears.
This was because the old man's internal organs were in such bad shape that he should had been dead years ago. On hearing this, the dead man's daughter shrugged and said "Probably this has something to do with his affirmation".
"What affirmation?", the doctors asked.
"As long as I can remember, every morning after getting up, my father used to stand in front of the mirror and shout 'Every Day in Every Way I am Getting Better and Better'!", the daughter replied.
