So, What are Affirmations?
Affirmations are statements of acceptance that one uses to allow the manifestation of your destiny. They are powerful and positive thoughts and statements sent out to the universe. To do positive affirmations, you need to eliminate the negativity around you. You must first believe that YOU CAN manifest your destiny. It must be a positive, powerful belief not just ‘maybe I’ll try and see if this works”. Together with Visualizations, you can create the life you want.
Before You Begin:
Decide which area of your life you want to work on and then decide what you want.
There are several important points to know about affirmations:
- Use the present or past tense.
- Do not use the future tense. You want your mind to know it has already happened.
Tips on Creating Your Own:
- Be POSITIVE: Use the most positive terms you can. Never use negatives in affirmations.
- Write them: As you are learning to do affirmations, write them down so you will remember exactly what you want to say. Keep them short and very specific. Personalize them with your name.
- Believe: Always believe that what you are saying is happening. The more you believe, the stronger the affirmation.
- Repetition: Being repetitive and persistent helps to set them in your head and in your unconscious being.
- Time: Always have a specific time daily set aside for your meditations, affirmations and visualizations. This will help set a pattern for you so you will do them daily.
There are many websites and books that have been published containing many prewritten affirmations for all situations if you feel more comfortable in beginning your experience with those. However, as you become more familiar with using affirmations in your daily life, you will most certainly begin creating and designing your own.
Here are just a few examples:
