Positive, Daily Affirmations For All Things
Firstly, I cannot stress how important affirmations can be for healing,
both of the body and especially the mind.
What Is An Affirmation?
An affirmation is essentially a positive
statement that is given in the
present tense, i.e. "I am a wonderful person with many talents". Can
feel how positive that statement is? Simply saying to ourself out loud
such a positive statement makes us feel good. It can be an instant
mood booster. However, the real power of affirmations is how they get
into our subconscious mind, the thoughts below our conscious
awareness, and boost those too.
Reprogram The Subconscious
An affirmation said often will actually
reprogram our subconscious with the positive statement we are
repeating. They have the power to literally turn our life around from
negative to positive, and do so quickly! They can also be applied to
almost any situation or problem, be it work, love or bad habits. Once
we get the hang of writing them, we can quickly compose our own
affirmations whenever we need to, to
suit our current needs.
The Law Of Attraction
Affirmations assist the Law of Attraction - by repeating
affirmations we are sending out positively charged energy. As 'like
attracts like', positive energy attracts back more positive
energy. Often our thoughts can become negative and repetitive, our
inner chatter bringing
us down and closing down opportunities. Negative thoughts block us from
moving forward. Since a positive attitude isn't always easy or natural
in the face of adversity, this is where repeating affirmations can help
Louise Hay is the most famous expert on using affirmations and has
written entire books on the topic that many find helpful. I can
recommend reading The Power Is Within You by Louise Hay.

affirmations is to phrase them in the positive,
otherwise they cannot reprogram our subconscious thoughts"
Frame Affirmations In The Positive
If you were
to say, "Bad people no longer hinder me", what your mind hears is the
words "bad people" and that is what you begin to attract. Rather,
saying "Kindness surrounds me and I accept love to come to me" is a
million times more effective at changing your expectations in life and
charging you with positive energy. Through the law of attraction you
begin to attract the positive things you state because your mind is
expecting it. You are sending out much higher energy to the universe,
and you can start living on a bandwidth where such things are possible.
How To Use Affirmations Effectively & Correctly
Affirmations are actually simple to use once you know how.
"First, a positive statement or affirmation
must always be written in the
Never phrase your affirmation in the past or future tense with words like "I
will" or "I was". Instead of saying "I will lose weight", simply say "I
lose weight" - and there is the power, in the present moment.
How Many Times To Use An Affirmation?
Repeat any affirmation at least 3 times out loud. For more power, spend
a few minutes just repeating it as a mantra, over and over.
Do this at intervals throughout the day whenever you remember. If you
to change, you will remember to do this.
Spend some time on the wording
so that your affirmations really resonate with you. You can also repeat
them over and over in your mind, or some people prefer to write them
out over and over. Stick them on the fridge, the bedroom
wall or a corner of your computer screen. Do this for as long as it
takes for your energy to change to positive.
You may feel odd doing
this at first until it feels natural. Some affirmations can feel too
at first, this occurs when your belief system argues with you.
persist through this feeling, you actually change that belief system at
a deep level, whilst drawing to you new positive energy that supports
the new belief.
Do Affirmations Work? My Experience
Yes, affirmations do in fact work for most people, if they are framed
positive and are worked with for long enough.
I had an experience where I believe affirmations saved my life from cancer that was
very aggressive. Because I knew my life could well depend on
it, I managed to change my whole attitude about my life to the positive with the use of affirmations, though it
was no easy feat. I had such entrenched negative thought patterns, but each day I
would repeat out loud, like a mantra, "I love my live, my life is
wonderful, I want to live."
This was not how I felt initially, yet
repeating this fundamental statement took me to a very positive state
towards cherishing life again. I consider myself lucky because the
cancer has not returned. I feel that the Louise Hay books I'd read
about affirmations gave me the tools to work instantly on my
and bring my attitude back in alignment with the light, giving me
another chance to see how wondrous the world is.
Today I no longer need
this affirmation daily to remind me since it has finished its
reprogramming work. This is how it often is; once you have worked on
one area of your life, you don't need to revisit that particular issue
again and are free to move onto other attitudes or beliefs.
Remember when writing affirmations regarding life's problems to be
imaginative and unlimited. We can reprogram our life in any positive
way we want. What can be more
natural than affirming positive things about you to yourself? Remember:
Think big and beautiful about You!
