The power of a positive affirmation is something many people are not aware of. An affirmation is really anything you say or think about. Most of the time, the thoughts that run through our minds are usually negative. Due to life’s constant stress and misfortunes, we harbor a lot negative self talk, which then lead us to attract negative experiences that match. We have to learn to train our subconscious minds into naturally thinking positively, which is where affirmations come in handy.
One thing most successful people all have in common are that they understand the power of the mind. The secret that no one tells you is that we attract what we think. I know that is terrifying to even imagine, since we have about 70,000 thoughts a day, but luckily, the negative thoughts hold less weight than the positive ones. An affirmation opens the door to all of the positive things that you crave in your life right now. It is a first step on the path to change. In essence, you are telling your subconscious that you are aware that there is something you can do to change and that you are taking responsibility.
When I say it is important to do affirmations, I am saying that it is important to consciously choose words that will help eliminate something in your life, or jumpstart you into creating something new in life. Our internal dialog is a chain of affirmations, and whether aware of it or not, your thoughts and the choice of words you speak are creating your life’s experiences. Our thoughts are usually patterns that we learned as a child and while some work in our favor, others restrict and limit us into achieving or creating that very thing we want.
It is time for you to start monitoring your thought patterns and eliminating the ones that are creating all of the experiences you do not want. For example, if you are in a toxic relationship and are constantly thinking about all of its negative aspects, it will only bring more negativity in to that relationship. If you are insecure, stating over and over how ugly you feel will only kill your self-esteem even further. Stating you are miserable will attract misery, while stating how happy you are, although you might not be at the moment, will eventually attract that happiness you are hoping for.
You see, our minds are not able to decipher fiction from reality. That is why we cry at sad movies, although it is not happening to us. It is a proven fact that feeding our minds positive affirmation in present tense will jumpstart us in to experiencing the life we long for and loving ourselves the way we deserve.
P.S.: You are what you think, so please be kind.
