I am sure we have all heard of affirmations and many of us have tried to use them, some with results and some not. If you have tried and been disappointed, you will discover in this article the reason why!
What are Affirmations?
Well, an affirmation is a statement which we repeat many times either verbally, mentally or ideally both. They are just words then? Exactly right! Now words without emotion and vision are pretty flimsy no matter how many times you say them, especially if you are reading something that is written by someone else. Now don't get me wrong there are some very powerful, proven pre-written affirmations out there, but you must 'feel' the power of the words before they can work for you, you need to resonate with the words, that's why I believe that your own words are powerful!
Words follow thought, first you have thought and then the words, so do you see that it is the inner you that has to have the belief and the feeling, then the words affirm it to be your truth, so this is why some affirmations work and others don't!
In my earlier articles I talk of vision first, then write it, feel the emotion then go over it and over it, I believe that these steps are far more powerful because they keep you focused and you eventually have this affirmed in all of your senses and most importantly your subconscious mind! You cannot help but feel emotionally charged, then it is your reality and you manifest your desires!
You need to feel with every fibre of your being that what you desire has already happened. Without this feeling, your affirmation has no power. An affirmation is only effective if it is stated in the present tense, for example; "I now have a wonderful job." If you state I am going to have this job", then it will always be in the future, can you see that? So if you have practised affirmations saying "I want to be slim" or I will create my ideal partner", then it is always in front of you waiting to happen! So try" I now have my perfect partner". Keep your affirmations short and precise, there are many examples available, if they are suitable keep them, but if they are words you would not use I would consider changing slightly.
Once you have a good affirmation that feels right to you, say it often and then some more, write it repeatedly and visualise, the more effort and emotion you put in, the sooner you will start to see results and as you see the results you will be enthusiastic and not have to work so hard at it. Belief will grow as you succeed.
Remember you need to 'feel' what is like to have that desire right now, what does it bring for you? How does it change your life? Really taste it!
So there you go, now you know how this works and you have a simple formula for creating affirmations that will work for you. If you follow these steps above, you can easily manifest any desire or dreams that you would like to have in your life.
Affirmations can work to improve you life and your circumstances, learn how to use them effectively and create the things you dream of! To all you deserve and desire!
