A Powerful Big Thing Called an Affirmation…and How They Can Transform Your Life!
‘I think I can, I know I can…’ How do you psyche yourself up in the morning to get through the day?
If you’re looking for a simple and effective way to beat the stress, reciting affirmations to yourself can really give a boost to your self-esteem. Not only can it transform your day, but also your life!
An affirmation is simply a set of inspiring words that you say or write to yourself in order to promote positive thinking. These can be any set of words that mean something to you, for example, ‘I will be the best person I can be’ or ‘I can achieve whatever I put my mind to.’ You can even use words from songs or stories that you find inspiring to use as affirmations.
For an affirmation to truly work, you actually have to believe in the words you say. Recite them to yourself when you are truly relaxed and don’t overthink them. Keep your mind clear and focus on the positive. The more we train ourselves to believe our affirmations and channel our emotions into them, the more successful they will be.
Although you can perform affirmations for others, some spiritual advisers believe that it’s not right to interfere with the ‘truths’ of others, especially when we still haven’t dealt with our own.
You may not see the changes you seek happen right away, but they will happen. Affirmations can be an incredibly powerful thing not because they alter the things around you, but rather change you on the inside. They give you a more positive perspective on life and the tools you need to make those changes for yourself. An affirmation can only come true if the change begins with you.
