Personally, I use affirmations on a daily basis and it has played a tremendous role in enhancing my life and the way that I go about certain things.
Affirmations have helped me to think positive and become more motivated on a day to day basis.
I even used affirmations to have the courage to begin creating a blog. Affirmations have helped me pursue so many ideas that I never would have imagined.
When you first start using affirmations, and the Law of Attraction, you begin to realize that you can influence your life’s reality by really becoming in tune with your thoughts, beliefs and feelings.
Positive affirmations give you the ability to manifest whatever your heart desires by believing in what you want and also having that feeling that it is already here.
If you wish to change your life and attain all of your dreams and desires, here are some pointers on how to reach these goals.
KNOW WHAT YOU WANT
When it comes to using positive affirmations, you have to have in your mind what you EXACTLY want to come into your life.
Do you want a better job?
Do you want to lose weight?
Are you wanting an extra amount of money in your bank account?
Whatever it is, make sure you have an exact idea on what you want to bring forth into your life.
Many times people will list or say what they don’t want or don’t want to happen them. This is the incorrect way to use affirmations. When you do this, your subconscious mind will focus on the negatives and will bring want you don’t want into your life even though you said that you don’t want it.
Be careful with your words when using affirmations. Speak of what you want not want you don’t want.
KNOW THAT YOU HAVE IT
The words you speak are not enough to make an idea or vision imprint into your subconscious mind.
It requires EMOTIONS to be triggered when you are using your affirmations.
For example, the way that I was able to use my words effectively to trigger emotion, is to always start off my affirmations by saying “I am so happy and grateful.”
Happy and Grateful are two words that are emotional words.
I would then go on to add whatever it is that I want so for instance I would say. “I am so happy and grateful that I have X amount of dollars in my bank account.”
Do you see what I did there? I used emotion by including “happy and “grateful”, and I also spoke it in the present tense.
I said it like I already have the money in my account. That is the trick, you must know that you have it before you even have it. Don’t use words like maybe or some day or possibly. Use present tense words in your affirmations to invoke that feeling of already having what you affirmed.
I will make a more in detail post on how to create positive affirmations.
FEEL WHAT YOU ALREADY HAVE
Feeling and emotion are so important when using affirmations. Words just won’t cut it alone.
Your mind will know if what you are trying to affirm is not something that you really want and will reject the idea. You must set a clear intention and feel that you have what you are affirming.
The way to invoke more feeling and be in a positive state when using affirmations is by imagining or visualizing how it will feel to have that desire or goal.
What I do, is after I say my affirmations, I create a scenario in my head where I am receiving what I affirmed. I see myself being happy with that goal, smiling and celebrating.
I picture myself already having what I affirmed. This helps bring so much emotion and feeling around that goal in order to allow it to manifest.
The feelings that you have about achieving your goal are what needs to be manifested to help bring forward what you are asking for.
Being able to understand this and incorporating it when asking for what you want is extremely important because the emotions and the feelings that you send out to the universe, will always comeback.
Using affirmations on a daily basis have changed my life tremendously. There is nothing in this world that is unattainable. As long as you set a clear intention on what you want, you speak of it like you already have it, you add emotion and feeling behind it, and you BELIEVE that it is yours… All of your affirmations will begin to manifest!
