The Power of Positive Affirmations

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.” ~Buddha

 

Many of us have negative thoughts, limiting beliefs etc, sometimes on a regular basis. When we have these thoughts, our confidence, mood and outlook become negative too. The problem with negative thoughts is that they can be self-fulfilling. Inside our heads, we talk ourselves into believing that we’re not good enough. And, because of this, these thoughts drag down our personal lives, our relationships, and our careers. This is why consciously doing the opposite – using positive affirmations – can be helpful.

Daily affirmations are reminders to your unconscious mind to stay focused on your goals and to come up with solutions to challenges and obstacles that might get in the way. Daily affirmations also can create higher vibrations of happiness, joy, appreciation, and gratitude that then, through the law of attraction, magnetise people, resources, and opportunities to come to you to help you achieve your goals.

Saying daily positive affirmations is an essential tool to changing your life right before your eyes.  The way you think, as well as the way you speak has a huge influence on your life and how you live it.  To see a real change in the world around you, you must first change the way you think about it.

While doing research for this post, I came across ‘Soul Analyse‘. Soul Analyse teaches you how to calm the mind, find inner peace and reconnect with your soul, which in turn, allows you to live an authentic life. It was built to remind you of who you are and help you gain clarity in a world that is overloaded with expectations, norms and rules. On their site you will find many articles, videos, affirmations and quotes that relate to self-improvement.

They’ve also got a collection of gorgeous affirmation bracelets in silver, gold and rose gold that not only beautiful, but also impactful and can be worn every day to help change negative self-beliefs.

“I AM are two of the most powerful words, for what you put after them shapes your reality.”

When a thought or word is said often enough, it becomes lodged in our subconscious and we begin to believe it. Our bracelets allow you to retrain the way you think by introducing new uplifting ideas to your belief system, causing a positive change in your mental attitude.

Here are the eight guidelines for creating effective daily affirmations. You may want to write these down.

  1. Start with the words “I am.” These are the two most powerful words in the English language.
  2. Use the present tense.
  3. State it in the positive. Affirm what you want, not what you don’t want.
  4. Keep it brief.
  5. Make it specific.
  6. Include an action word ending with –ing.
  7. Include at least one dynamic emotion or feeling word.
  8. Make affirmations for yourself, not others.

 

Alongside wearing these gorgeous affirmation bracelets, I have my favourite quote tattooed on my wrist; ‘Trust Your Journey’. It’s a gentle reminder to trust my journey and my life – all day, every day! Below I have put together a list of daily positive affirmations that might be useful if you’re thinking of starting using affirmations.
