Affirmations are strong positive statements you can construct that something you desire or crave in your life is already so.
We say them to reinforce what we are thinking to support change or shift in our thinking, emotions , actions and thereby our results.
For an affirmation to be effective, it needs to be present tense, positive, personal and specific [reference-Wikipedia]
Why do this?
The intent behind affirmations is to alter your thinking and your behaviours and gradually replace limiting thinking or beliefs with affirmations that increase your activity and actions towards achieving your goals or outcome. It encourages you towards action and taking responsibility for your results.
I’ll give you some examples you can use for yourself to replace thoughts of negative thinking and limiting language.
When you doubt your self -worth replace it with ” I am worthy of Love and abundance”
When you are inclined to devalue your self-worth replace it with “I am enough”‘
When you think it’s too hard or are fearful about the outcome substitute “I am unique and give myself permission to shine and thrive”
When you think you are stuck in a rut flip it for “My past does not determine my future”
When you think lack or scarcity is how it’s always going to be replace it with “I am worthy of wealth ( not just the monetary kind) ”
You can construct your own affirmations, keep in mind that they need to be important and relevant to your own particular situation.
Repeat them daily, or twice daily and you will find it helps keep you focused on what you want to achieve and on purpose towards your goals.
This means the goals that you choose are important and must support you towards realising your dreams and aspirations into reality.
Write your goals down, get them out of your head , so you can focus on them and give then shape and form.They will then pick up meaning from you and allow you to work on creating a real result or outcome for your self.
What you focus on will expand and you will attract more of it.
Choose wisely what you focus on!
Say it how you want it to be in your life. Starting and maintaining a gratitude journal will also benefit how you view your wellbeing.
