About this Book
Long before the use of affirmations was embraced in mainstream settings as diverse as hospitals, recovery programs, sports arenas, and corporate suites, the renowned world teacher Paramahansa Yogananda understood and taught the deep spiritual principles that make this ancient scientific tool so powerfully effective.
This groundbreaking book, in print for more than 70 years, explains the underlying reasons affirmations work?why they are such a powerful tool for transformation, and how you can use them to create total health and happiness in every aspect of your life.
In this book, Sri Yogananda reveals the hidden laws for harnessing the power of concentrated thought?not only for physical healing, but to overcome obstacles and create all-around success in our lives. Included are comprehensive instructions and a wide variety of affirmations for healing the body, developing confidence, awakening wisdom, curing bad habits, and much more.
The first half of Scientific Healing Affirmations provides a deeper understanding of the remarkable relationship between mind, energy, and matter, and how concentrated affirmations can rouse the limitless power of Spirit within you. The last part of the book presents potent affirmations that Paramahansa Yogananda created while in higher states of consciousness. These are grouped so you can easily select the appropriate healing thoughts for addressing physical, mental, or spiritual needs.
