Learning how to make positive affirmations that work is a powerful tool that you can use to change your mindset and manifest the changes that you desire to have in your life.
Affirmation is one of the easiest ways to manipulate your conscious mind. It is so simple, yet so powerful and effective. It has been used for thousands of years throughout the world in spiritual practices in the form of prayers. And yes, it is still very much in vogue today in the modern world, being used by achievers and winners in business, competitive sports, professions, and even in politics.
Affirmations are simple statements or declarations that you repeat to yourself aloud or silently.
You can say it anywhere or at any time: at waking up or before going to bed, driving or riding the bus, before an important meeting or an examination, while waiting in the dentist’s office or waiting for a job interview. In fact, you need only but two or three minutes at a time.
When done correctly, affirmations can influence the thoughts that occur in your mind. Your subconscious mind automatically picks up the message and then set to work to provide the conditions that will lead to the actualization of the thoughts expressed in the affirmation.
We create our realities depending on our beliefs or thoughts, as well as habits or actions, and the easiest way that you can change your beliefs is through making positive affirmations about the kind of changes you want to make in your life.
Important considerations when making positive affirmations:
The first important thing that you should know about making affirmations is that an affirmation is personal. This means that your affirmation should start with the word “I”. You should understand that positive affirmations work only for you and not any other person.
Avoid negative statements, or mentioning the issue or problem that you want to change. Always make your affirmations in the positive. For example, if you’re preparing for an important examination, do not affirm. “I’m not going to fail this exam.” Fail is a negative term, and your subconscious mind might inexplicably pick it up and then go ahead and deliver fail to you.
Keep your affirmations concise and simple. You should make positive affirmations that you can easily recall and memorize throughout the day. Make it rhythmic if possible.
Be specific. Your affirmations should clearly reflect the results or benefits that you intend to achieve. The affirmations you make should define your concepts: success, love, happiness, and more.
Make your affirmations in the present time. Avoid words such as wish, want, or would. State your declaration as if it is happening now.
You should also make your affirmations powerful and believable so that the affirmations can work. Use words that trigger emotion and excitement to make your affirmations powerful.
In order for the positive affirmations you make to work, you should LIVE the positive affirmations. This includes practicing and training yourself to remember and act according to the affirmations. The best way to live you positive affirmations is to repeat them with emotions each day. You can also write them down so that you can keep reading them.
Affirmations work effectively if you can first establish the belief that is preventing them. The power of your subconscious mind is very important, in ensuring that you achieve the desired state of mind, and it is only by making the change in the mind, that you can begin living the change.
You can use positive affirmations to manifest the change you desire in your life.
