Affirmations are a powerful tool we can use to attract and draw to us all the things we want in life. They can be used to promote a positive attitude in ourselves, and an aura of positive expectation, and so attract positive things to you - almost as if by magic.
Affirmations are Magical. There is something extraordinary in the power of the spoken word.
Affirmations are a way to focus you and the energy around you to get the things that you want. If you imagine you are in a dimly lit room, a torch will provide you with some focus on particular features of the room around you. The torch sheds light on things and enables you to see them more clearly – it brings your focus to them.
Affirmations are like this torch. They provide the focus and concentrated light, or attention, onto what you want to see, or have.
What you focus on or think about, you attract - even if this is negative. For example, if you think about bad health and how poorly you think you are feeling, you will attract poor health.
It can be hard to dismiss negative thoughts from your mind. You might have to fight hard to dislodge them. Affirmations are statements of determination. Be determined when saying your Affirmations. You are in charge after all. Repeat them often – especially when negative thoughts drift into your mind.
Affirmations can modify the way your subconscious mind works. Even when you feel things are hopeless, the spoken word can begin the healing. If you repeat a favourite affirmation, like a mantra, over and over and over again, crowding out all negative thoughts, and filling your mind with only one thought of conviction, you are doing something that is extremely effective in promoting change. You are reprogramming your mind.
Repeat positive Affirmations to yourself as often as possible. Always make them positive and as if they had already happened.
Affirmations are a powerful tool to help you achieve what you desire in life. They can produce what seems like magical results - quickly.
Affirmations, when performed in conjunction with effective visualisation of what you want to achieve, are destined to come true so...
– be careful what you wish for.
An affirmation is a positive personal statement designed to modify negative beliefs and expectations, and motivate and influence us in new directions.
Affirmations are emotionally driven statements of your intentions, and the faith that guides your thoughts and actions.
These statements can be powerfully effective for developing and strengthening your thought patterns, and as a consequence, the actions you need to take in order to achieve what you want in life. Affirmations, and the thought patterns that they produce within you, will irresistibly attract that which you affirm to be true.
More than anything at this stage, affirmations can bring you life changes quickly and dramatically. They can change your personality, change your view of the world, and bring new opportunities into your life.
You can actually program yourself to be more successful, happy, and more financially secure by simply planting positive thoughts into your mind, and repeating them often.
Many people believe that affirmations work on several levels.
Firstly they work on the level of your conscious mind. You hear positive statements about yourself and your personality and the life you want or have and this helps dislodge any negativity in your attitudes and beliefs.
There is another level, an almost magical level - they also work on your subconscious mind.
By daily affirming the existence of the life that you want, including the person you want to be, your subconscious will act on these positive statements and work towards you achieving what you want in life.
This higher level is the magical level. Because when you perform your affirmations, you are actually making a declaration to the Universe. These statements or commands go out into the universe and affect not only your own conscious and unconscious levels, but other people's as well. Other people will see the change in you Affirmations that involve others are really communications to everyone.
There are things within you that are blocking the Universe from delivering your goals to you. These things are vagueness, negativity, stress and a lack of belief in your own power and ability to achieve what you want. Affirmations will help you clear this blockage.
To be effective, affirmations must be made with conviction and belief. The more conviction and belief, the greater the power they will have. The manifestation of opportunities and ideas will be the natural and assured consequence of positive, effective affirmations expressed with conviction, belief and heightened emotion.
Half-hearted affirmations, delivered without conviction, will produce half-hearted results, or no results at all.
To be effective, Affirmations must be positive, expressed in the present tense, and be a statement of your desires. They must be expressed with conviction and belief, as if each statement was already a reality. They must be expressed deliberately, and with the emotion and feelings we would experience if each statement had already manifested. Belief, imagery, and emotion are essential elements in effective Affirmations.
All your Affirmations must be created. To create useful and effective Affirmations you will write them down. They will be a representation of what you want in your life and they can be representations of material things, or things that relate to your character and personality. It is these written words that will be the emotionally driven statements of your intentions.
The process of performing your Affirmations will involve three stages.
The first stage will appropriate the necessary state of mind for effectively impressing your Affirmations on your subconscious. This will connect you with your inner power, reducing the critical faculty of your conscious mind. This will enable your creative power, which is the power to effect the desired changes in your life.
Your first Affirmation should be such that it invokes this state of mind. It will be a general statement that affirms and aligns yourself with a spiritual truth – your desire to experience in reality what you are already experiencing in your imagination.
Examples of this style of Affirmation:
• I am now achieving everything I want in my life
• All that I need and desire is now and forever supplied to me
• I am now and forever enjoying perfect health
Your first Affirmation should be repeated, mantra style, at least thirty times.
The second stage in the performance of your Affirmations will be repeating statements relating to specific goals. These must be stated in positive terms – what you want rather than what you don’t want. They must be in the present tense as if they were already manifest in your life.
Your goal-specific affirmations should begin with such words as:
I am, or
I am becoming, or
Your goal-specific Affirmations must be – specific. State how much, and what type.
When invoking your subconscious mind to help you achieve what you want in your life, it will follow the path of least resistance. What you state as your statements of fact in your Affirmations will come to you in a way that is easiest according to your beliefs and expectations. Do not be concerned with “how”, there are many more ways of getting what we desire than we are aware of. We can leave this element to our subconscious mind to achieve our goals and dreams.
The only limit to the number of Affirmations you create is the time you have available to perform them. You should repeat your Affirmations as often as possible each day. 20 times each per day is good!
The final stage in the performance of your Affirmations will be the expression of acceptance and gratitude for the abundance of everything that you have.
Examples of these types of Affirmation include:
• I am so grateful because I am now financially secure forever
• I am so grateful because I now enjoy perfect health
You should repeat your final Affirmation at least 30 times each day.
The final act is to state a profound and consolidating Affirmation, simply:
So shall it be!
…knowing that what you asked for will most definitely manifest in your life according to your beliefs and expectations.
You should spend some time each day performing your Affirmations as described here. Allow yourself a specific time and a specific place if you can. But do not worry; you can repeat your Affirmations as often and wherever you can. Remember there are no barriers to your achievement – you will achieve what you want in your life.
You may feel inclined to take certain actions after you have performed your Affirmations for a number of weeks. These actions will be opportunities that will lead you to realising your goals and dreams and achieving what you want in your life.
Heed your inner voice and take whatever action you can to take you closer to your goals. Affirmations can be very powerful and can start to work, like magic, very quickly.
