While tracing the meridians, focus inwardly and gently voice these affirmations:
Affirmations Meridian I center myself in spirit. Central I ground myself in gratitude. Governing I nourish myself with love. Spleen I love myself deeply… and completely. Heart I know what I want… and I AM decisive. Small Intestine I feel vibrant, hopeful, and fully alive. Bladder I step forward with courage. Kidney I take excellent care of my heart. Circulation-Sex I honor my inner Warrior I AM safe. Triple Warmer I assert myself peacefully and release judgment easily. Gall bladder I am KIND to myself.

Stomach I nourish myself with love. Spleen I center myself in spirit. Central I ground myself in gratitude. Governing I nourish myself with love.

David Feinsteins Energy Psychology Interactive (an electronic resource, 2004) also lists emotions associated with each of the fourteen meridians.
