Safety and security are some of the most basic, non-negotiable needs. Safety is so fundamental that it’s one of the first needs in Maslow’s hierarchy of needs to meet before fulfilling pretty much any other need. So, pretty darn crucial.
Just after bare necessities like food, water, and shelter, your safety is next in line in order to thrive.
And you won’t be able to soothe other needs like love and belonging, self-esteem, or self-actualization until you are completely firm in your feelings of safety.
This is why focusing on protecting your energy, like through these affirmations for protection is something you don’t want to overlook.

Mindset is key for protecting your energy. You get back what you put out.
This is where the “fake it til ya make it” mentality actually holds some truth.
If you start prioritizing healthy boundaries and being intentional about what you allow into your life, even if you feel passive and insecure right now, you will make progress in protecting your energy.
Basically, acting the part results in becoming the part. AKA the Law of Attraction.
(Keep in mind that the law of attraction isn’t actually based in science, it is more of a belief system meant to strive for what you want in your life. Still valid, just in a different way.)
So by reframing your mindset to be more positive (which is the WHOLE goal of affirmations!), and by believing that you deserve to be safe, and are allowed to assert your boundaries, there will come a point where this assertiveness becomes who you are.
