Transform Your Life with the Power of Affirmations: Speak, Believe, Achieve

Is it sometimes hard for you to believe in yourself? Do you struggle to think positively? Or does your mind always seem to be able to find the worst-case scenarios?

Then daily affirmations may be a useful tool to help you shift your mindset in ways that improve your life.

What Are Affirmations?

Affirmations are statements that we say to ourselves that can shift our minds in ways that can make us feel better about ourselves and our lives.

They are not magic wands! They don't make our thoughts come true. Rather, they help us think in ways that make our lives better.

Researchers suggest that deliberate thought processes—like self-affirmations—can be made automatic over time.

We also know from neuroplasticity studies that the human brain can change and grow, even into adulthood. Neuroplasticity is the brain’s ability to change in a physical way to adapt to different circumstances.

We have seen this is people that have had physical trauma to the brain how this can change and adapt to not only recover but learn how to use another part of the brain in order to regain whatever capacity was lost.

That’s the way affirmations work. The more we repeat these positive statements and the more we have these positive thoughts, the easier it can be to have these thoughts again in the future.

Research suggests that affirmations can help us maintain our self-esteem or change certain behaviors.

For example, If we are struggling with our connection to Source, our guides, angels or our higher self we can use affirmations to help us.

My communication with my higher self is excellent.

I am open to Spirit in magnificent ways.

I can talk to my guides whenever I want to.

When we put this research together, the evidence is compelling that affirmations can be good for well-being.

Here are some tips to get started:

1.   Say affirmations out loud.

2.   ​Use the present tense.

3.   Do not highlight the negative. For example, don’t say I am losing weight, say I am reaching a healthy weight. Remember that neither your brain nor the universe hears the words no or not it skips it!!!!!

4.   Choose meaningful affirmations. If anything, this is the most important. There are hundreds of affirmations out there and it’s ok for you to google some. But make sure that they are short, easy to remember and that they are meaningful to you. If you can write them yourself even better.

For example, right now my affirmations are

I am powerful

I am loved and supported

There are amazing opportunities knocking at my door

I am enough

5.   Don’t do more than 5 a day and repeat those for at least 30 days and as many times a day as you can remember. The magic is in the repetition not the statement itself.

What I do is I have sticky notes in my car on my computer in the fridge… So, wherever I am at I remember to say them. I also do them as part of my daily routine, first thing in the morning and last thing before I go to bed. This is also important because the thought stays in your brain for it to work on it during the night while you sleep and there is less resistance to work against.

Affirmations are an easy way to work on changing to a more positive mindset which is so important when people are going through a spiritual awakening.

Give it a try!
