It is undeniable that humanity is going through a huge and quick transformation period the like of which the world has never seen before. More and more people are aware of our infinite potential and the power of our mind.
We know that everything is Energy; We know the power of the Universal Laws and how it can impact our lives; We know the Law of Vibration, which states that everything vibrates, nothing rests; We know that “Thoughts Become Things” as so well explained by Mike Dooley and so many other great teachers.
Undoubtedly, our thoughts and words play huge part on this process, but you know yourself, it is not easier to control our thoughts. It is here that Positive Life Affirmations come into place. They are an empowering tool, but yet not truly understood by so many people. That’s what we want to explore today, how affirmations can help us, how to create the right affirmations and some examples to inspire you.
Come with me if you are serious about to live a happier life!
Discover Your Personal Power Through Affirmations
There is a whole school, initiated by psychologist Martin Seligman – the founder of “Positive Psychology, about positive thinking, its benefits and why we should think positively. There are many studies proving that it helps us to live a better and happier life.
It improves our physical health – lower blood pressure, better pain tolerance, stress management, longer life, etc, and mental health – clearer thinking, better mood, more creativity, etc just to name but a few benefits. To illustrate it, a study from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, found that women who were optimistic had a significantly reduced risk of dying from several major causes of death — including cancer, heart disease, stroke, respiratory disease, and infection — over an eight-year period, compared with women who were less optimistic. This is an amazing result and enough for us to change our attitude towards life.
Important to say though, that Positive Thinking is not about live in a world of illusion but expect the best and, more than that, find the best in each situation. If we look closely we will find that every situation brings us a lesson and have a positive side.
If you think only positive and warmth things you will live a better life filled with love. Positive thoughts help us to move smoothly on our journey. Our duty is to keep our vibration as positive and as high as possible all the time, or most of the time, and this is a daily exercise.
However, you know yourself, it is easier to think positively when everything is going well but it is a whole different story when we are going through a tough situation and have that constant negative self talk. It is here that Affirmations can help us in a miraculous way.
What is Affirmation?
According to Dr. Norma J. Milanovich and Dr. Shirley D. McCune (The Light Shall Set You Free), simply putting, affirmations are nothing else than POSITIVE STATEMENTS that you affirm repeatedly throughout the day, as often as you desire. They can be spoken, written or just a thought.
Personally, I love affirmations, and I use the combination of those 3 forms. Although Dr. Norma and Dr. Shirley state that “when we affirm something by saying it aloud, we add the energy of sound to the thought. Sound is the second most important form of energy with which we can work. Light and sound. Do you remember the Law of Vibration? Yes, everything has its own unique vibratory frequency – sound. The higher the vibration we personally maintain, the more power we have to create and manifest that which is our perfect plan. We are Beings of Light“.
The truth is try it out and choose what works for you. The more you repeat it quicker the result will come. Nevertheless, it is important to stress that when you say an affirmation you need to put emotion on that. Emotion is the glue that connects us to our higher self. In the beginning you might not believe in what you are saying but keep doing it anyway, eventually you will believe it.
Saying affirmations help free us from the negativity by replacing them with positive, reinforcing thoughts. Furthermore, by using them, we are making firm statement about what we are trying to bring about in our life. It can be anything, really….a new job, better relationship, better health, more calmness, more abundance, implement a new habit, anything you want. It can be either specific or general. It depends on your needs.
Do you know that you can also use affirmations for others? Yes, you can, but of course, only use them for positive things, and first of all, ask for their higher self for permission.
How To Create And Use Affirmations
There is no recipe, right or wrong, but some tips can help you to create a positive daily affirmation that resonates the most with you and with what you are trying to manifest through that particular affirmation.
- Set your Goal and visualize what you wish to accomplish with that affirmation
- Focus all your energy in achieve that goal
- Write down a short positive affirmation about your goal – two or three sentences not more than that
- Place the affirmation in everywhere – it will work as a constant reminder to focus on what you want
- Say your affirmation aloud – in the car, in the shower, while doing your housework, any time you can as often as you wish.
- Do Mirror Work – that is a great technique, Louise Hays signature – say your affirmation looking at the mirror into your eyes. It brings more energy. Do that if you feel comfortable.
- Record it and listen to it whenever you can, and even when sleeping. When sleeping you are in a completely relaxed stated and can easily absorb new ideas without questioning or judging it. That’s why self hypnosis work so well.
- Write it down many times during the day. The power of writing affirmations down can’t be underestimated.
- Keep a Positive Affirmations Journal and write down positive thoughts that can elevate your vibration. Then read it often or whenever you need it.
Remember, it needs to be a simple statement, easy to say, and above all, you MUST put emotion when saying the affirmation. Beliefs and emotions solidify thoughts faster.
As per Dr. Norma J. Milanovich and Dr. Shirley D. McCune, when you see something develop, immediately claim your power and accept that you have participated in co-creating this event. Watch for all signs, it might not come in the form of what you were expecting. Know that the Universe works in mysterious ways. Accept everything as a sign of your power to manifest and give silent thanks for your gifts. It’s vital to have an attitude of gratitude. It keeps the wheel of gratitude and energy turning. Furthermore, paying attention to the signs will help to develop self-confidence in yourself an in this system, then your believe system will start to strengthen.
They also recommend that, once you did it, detach from your need, and let it go into the Universe. Trust the Universe has more intelligence than you do and that the perfect situation will take form around you.
