You might already know the definition of an affirmation; it is a short powerful statement that is aimed at helping you to be in conscious control of your thoughts. Studies show that each of us has over 45,000 thoughts a day and 80% of those thoughts are fairly negative.
Affirmations bring the subconscious thoughts to the surface and make them conscious and therefore we become consciously aware of what we are thinking. Once we are consciously aware, we can try to adjust the conscious thoughts from being negative, to powerful positive thoughts. Affirmations are not necessarily a guided thought process like meditation, they are personal and can be made up on the spot.
Most of us could do with a boost of confidence, so affirming your beliefs in yourself is a great way to start. Affirmations could be anything you want them to be. They can take time to start to process and may not give you an instant boost, but they will certainly change your way of thinking. If we all learned to think more positively and not to let negative thoughts take over, then the world would be a different place.
Some examples of affirmations could be similar to those below, but it is important to tailor the words to your own needs:
- All is well in my world.
- I am healthy, whole, and complete.
- Every day in every way, I am becoming more and more successful.
- I love change and easily adjust myself to new situations.
- I am extremely lucky.
- I totally love and accept myself.
- All of my body systems are functioning perfectly.
- I am aligned with the energy of wealth and abundance
You can go on with any similar statement and repeat them throughout the day as many times as possible.
When you continually repeat these affirmations with a lot of conviction and passion they eliminate even the strongest resistance. The positive affirmations not only reprogram your thought patterns but they also change the way you think and feel about things. This will begin showing in your external life and you will experience tremendous changes for the better in most areas of your life. Try it… You will see…
