If I’m being honest, the last 8 weeks have felt like I’m a rabbit with an injured leg, bolting through the dark, my heart pounding. I know I’m exhausted but I can’t stop running because I don’t feel safe.
When we practice affirmations for safety and security, we’re rerouting our thoughts to a better, safer place in our brains and establishing habits of thought. Safety is one of the most primal, basic needs that every animal has, and we all deserve to feel safe.
Why Don’t You Feel Safe?
It’s worth noting that we can feel like we’re not safe when we’re actually safe in the moment. Maybe climate change makes you feel that the future of the earth and everyone on it isn’t safe. Maybe your house was robbed three years ago, and even though it was a long time ago, you never really felt safe in your home again.
If you’re experiencing violence at home or threats at work, these are real dangers. Don’t be afraid to ask for help to get safely out of these environments.
These safety affirmations are for those who are safe currently, but because of past experiences or anxiety, you don’t feel safe right now.
Using Affirmations for Safety and Security
The best thing you can do for yourself when you’re practicing these safety affirmations is be in a space where your body is also safe. We hold a lot of feelings and trauma in our bodies, and especially when we’ve been in situations where we were unsafe before, we have a tendency to hold that fear in our bodies.
I tend to hold my fear and feelings of being unsafe in my chest, neck, and arms. (Typically, when we experience a stress response to prepare for fight or flight, our blood goes to our limbs.)
You might feel fear or being unsafe in your head, or your legs. There’s no right or wrong.
Notice where those feelings reside for you. When you practice these affirmations for safety, you can put your attention on another part of your body, like your spine or your hips.
Speak these affirmations out loud or write them in a journal. But however you practice them, be sure to feel them in your body!
