I had a starling realization this week. It would seem that there are an alarming number of people living in our world and our communities that simply are not hearing the affirmations that they need to every day to maintain their optimal level of functioning. The world we live in is such a negative place... we need to counter that by pumping up our own levels of positivity! You can do this by utilizing the power of affirmations.
Affirmations are proven methods of self-improvement because of their ability to rewire our brains. They strengthen us by helping us believe in the potential of an action that we desire to manifest. This is why we are instantly empowered with a deep sense of reassurance that our wishful words will become reality when we verbally affirm our dreams and ambitions. (I cannot stress how important it is for you to hear yourself saying these affirmations out loud... it makes a world of difference in the success of this endeavour!)
Many people seem to think that using affirmations is difficult, but nothing could be further from the truth! It’s easy to start. Are there areas of your life where you feel that you would benefit from being told that you’re doing alright more often? You know yourself better than just about everyone else on this earth. You don’t even need another person to say these to you – it works just as well to say your affirmations to yourself.
If you are having trouble getting started, try these example affirmations out and see if it gets your creative juices flowing:
I love and approve of myself.
I am blessed with an incredible family and wonderful friends.
I am a powerhouse. I am indestructible.
I matter and what I have to offer this world also matters.
I possess the qualities needed to be extremely successful.
Creative energy surges through me and leads me to new and brilliant ideas.
My ability to conquer my challenges is limitless. My potential to succeed is infinite.
In other words...
I am important.
I am worthy.
I am happy.
I am at peace.
I am enough.
You can utilize any of these affirmations alone or create your own unique list based on your personal experiences, wishes and needs. What is most important is to establish a profound communication connection with the universe, so say it with conviction, say it in your own unique voice, and make it happen in the real world!
