Hi! Thank you so much for joining me in today’s special bonus post, looking at the power of Affirmations!
Okay first question I know many of you will have is what is an affirmation? An affirmation or mantra, the word is pretty interchangeable, is a positive sentence that you repeat out loud or in your head to affect the conscious and the subconscious mind.
Now let’s break that down a little bit more! You may remember that in my last post I said our beliefs and thoughts create our reality. Well it’s true! If we say something to ourselves often enough then it becomes true.
Have you ever thought I can’t do that and then found to your dismay that you couldn’t? The reason that this happens comes back to what I was saying yesterday (in my Good Vibes post) what you put out to the universe you will get back.
Affirmations help to motivate us, change how we think, remind us of our goals, feel more positive and raise our vibrations. See yesterday’s post for more information on this!
I am sure that many of you will now be thinking that’s great but how can I use them, what do I say and when?
It’s simple you can say any empowering positive statement you want! Yes you heard me, write anything as long as it’s positive and it connects with you! I would encourage you to sit down and write your own.
I normally say them in the morning when I wake up and then whenever I need them throughout the day. You can say them whenever you want to, maybe before bed to help you relax. It is whatever works best for you.
Here are some examples of what you could say:-
- I can and I will, watch me;
- I am calm, creative and caring;
- Miracles happen to me all of the time;
- I get to choose who I want to be; and
- I am always guided and I know what is for me will not pass me.
When you say the right words with conviction every day for a while, then I promise you that they will begin to light you up! I really believe that everyone should say them, even children! They could say something like the following:-
- I am me and I am okay;
- I am happy;
- My family love me because I am me;
- I am a fast learner; and
- I like school and I am happy there.
Let me know how you get on with thinking of your own affirmations or trying the ones above. Feel free to comment below and to follow us on our social media pages. Our details are below:-
