Adult Affirmation Comfort Coins
$7.95 – $195.00
If you are a chaplain, social worker or therapist who spends a lot of time trying to comfort people who are sick or in emotional distress, you will find this affordable little pack of comfort coins helpful. It is something you can leave with people so they can learn to calm and comfort themselves during stressful situations.
Based on the science of positive affirmations, combined with the calming effect of repetitive motion, using these seven comfort coins will help anyone respond with maturity and wisdom to whatever difficult situation they are facing.
You can think of them as a combination of worry stones and affirmations. They were designed to help people calm their emotions and strengthen the virtues they need when dealing with stressful situations.
They were inspired by our Cuddlebunny’s Comfort Coins, but adapted for use by adults and youth who are too “sophisticated” to carry around a fluff ball. For them, we have added three higher-level virtues that adults need every day, but that young kids might find challenging.
Here’s how they work:
The pouch of comfort coins contains seven polished wooden coins. Each is printed with an affirmation based on an important virtue that is useful in difficult situations. A person can choose the coin that is most appropriate for the situation they are facing and rub it with their thumb like a worry stone. Then they take a deep breath and repeat the affirmation – aloud or to themselves – over and over until they feel ready to move forward.
The seven affirmations are circular to reinforce the connection between how you feel and the qualities you possess. They are:
I feel calm because I am calm because I feel calm…
I feel strong because I am strong because …
I feel thankful because I am thankful because …
I feel brave because I am brave because …
I feel loved because I am loved because …
I feel forgiving because I am forgiving because …
I feel wonderful because I am wonderful because …
Of course, a person doesn’t have to wait until they are feeling stressed to use these. You can encourage people to make them part of their morning meditation or use them to relax before bedtime. They can use them before lunch to reduce emotional eating, or quietly use them under the table during long staff meetings. They are inconspicuous and travel anywhere.
Each coin is 1.5” in diameter and they all come in a soft velvet pouch attached to a key ring so you can hook it to a purse strap, phone or… set of keys. The velvet pouch is almost as soft as our Cuddlebunnies, so it is comforting to hold. It also comes with a sheet with the above instructions, so you don’t have to explain all of this to the people you give them to.
The similar set of four coins that we sell for children is called Cuddlebunny’s Comfort Coins. Because it includes a really cute fuzzball with rabbit ears, it is slightly more expensive.
