Do Affirmations Work? Positive Affirmations
Some people say positive affirmations are silly and they don’t work. “Your just telling yourself lies”. So I wanted to provide some information for those people.
Affirmations do a few positive things for you. One, by telling yourself something positive everyday, it raises your vibration, it makes you FEEL better, which in return will make you do feel good actions throughout the day. Or start you off in that direction at least.
It also will allow you to start to change your mindset. Your sub-conscious does not know what is real or not. It doesn’t have a choice to accept or reject thoughts that come to it. Your conscious mind is able to accept or reject. So by telling yourself something positive, like I have unlimited wealth. You may not have a lot of money in physical form but if you truly believe that it is coming to you, and you tell yourself that every day eventually your sub-conscious will start to believe it, as it doesn’t have a choice. It becomes your reality.
An example would be waaay back in the day when they thought the world was flat. You were told if you went to the edge you would fall off. That isn’t true, but you believed it, it was your reality. You have access to unlimited wealth, that is the truth. So why not make it your reality?
When you were younger, if someone told you were ugly or stupid all your life, you would have grown up thinking that. If though you could have been the most beautiful, intelligent person. But your reality would be that you were not attractive and not very smart. ( I know someone very close to me that has gone through this, very sad, and it is difficult to change but can be done) But you see, you can choose your reality. And by saying positive affirmations every single day, you can change your mindset, you can change your paradigm, you can change your life. We truly are the creators of our own lives.
Some examples of positive affirmations are:
- I am love
- I am success
- I am wealthy
- I am rich in all aspects of my life
- I am healthy
- I have great relationships
- I attract all good into my life
- I attract the right people into my life
- Money comes to me so easily
- I am a money magnet
And I like to add something to the beginning of mine, I take this technique from Bob Proctor.
“I am so happy and grateful that…” and you fill it in with whatever you want.
By adding that at the beginning you are always using gratitude. You are giving thanks for what is coming to you, in a sense that you already have it! So powerful. But you must feel it as you are saying it. My personal affirmation for money is:
- I am so happy and grateful that money comes to me easily, effortlessly and in increasing quantities from multiple sources on a continuous bases. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you.
Now that is a long one, and you probably don’t want to go much longer than that, but it is up to you. Short and concise is nice. Positive affirmations are positive words or phrases that you believe in, and that you want. That is all. They just happen to have lots of power in them once they reach your sub-conscious mind.
Positive affirmations do work, how fast it depends is all up to you. There is a gestation period between the time that you think of what you want, the time that you impress it in the Universe and the time that it shows up in your physical world. Since time isn’t the same in the spiritual/energy world as it is on Earth, I cannot tell you how long it will take. But the more you believe it, the more you repeat it, you can shorten that time.
I hope this helps many people understand why positive affirmations work.
Love you all
