Tuesday's Healing Word Positive ThoughtsPositive thoughts are mini-affirmations.  In Louise L. Hay’s book Experience Your Good Now! she writes: “Affirmations are like planting seeds in the ground.  First they germinate, then they sprout roots, and then they shoot up through the ground.  It takes some time to go from a seed to a full-grown plant.  And so it is with affirmations—it takes some time from the first declaration to the final demonstration.  Be patient.”Tuesday's Healing Words Positive Thoughts
