You will be a failure, until you impress the subconscious with the conviction you are a success. This is done by making an affirmation which ‘clicks.’ – Florence Scovel Shinn
What is Affirmation?
Affirmation is a purposeful word or phrase that helps with our goal. It helps with making our potential goals possible. We can state an affirmation out loud or to ourselves.
It breaks negative thinking patterns, negative speech and negative actions.
When affirming a word or phrase, we speak with confidence and certainty. If we affirm but don’t believe, then we are not affirming at all.
Why use Affirmation?
When we are confident in ourselves, we can move toward our desired goal with direction.
When you affirm your dreams and goals, you gain self-assurance of your manifestation.
When we keep saying to ourselves with full belief, we become what we believe we see.This creates a feedback cycle that what we believe we see and what we see we believe.
Here is the secret of using affirmations to effectively enhance your everyday activity.
Secrets to Using Affirmations
The secret of using affirmations lies in our belief and use of energy. Have only one or neither of those and we have no power in our words.
- Focus on feeling positive
Feeling positive is a byproduct of the energy coming into you. When you gain energy, you feel positive.
So what do you do?
Work on your soul and amplify them each day. When you have high energy, you are in a position of power and in control of your life.
When I say work on your soul, I mean to perform meditation and be in a state of unity and oneness.
At the end of meditation or yoga or workout, you have a sense of energy where you feel relaxed, fresh and full of happiness. Again, those effects are the byproduct of energy coming into you.
This buzz is your energy, it is your raw power.
When you make affirmations, make sure you are in a position of raw power.If you make affirmations when you are feeling down, you have no energy to put those words into effect.
Feel the words as if it is reality. The more energy you put into the word, the powerful your affirmations will be.
- Believe in your words
If your belief is less than secure, your affirmations are meaningless.
If you don’t believe in your words, there is no effect. Believe or pretend to believe (acting) would amplify the power of the affirmations.
The subconscious mind doesn’t know the difference between what’s real and what’s not. When you believe, you give it reality.
Of course, we won’t get it right away and need time to believe in the words.
So that is why we…
- Repeat the affirmation
Make it a habit to use the affirmation to put back to the state of your desired goal.
Your affirmation can be used as your anchor to the mental state of your direction.
When you repeat them, you strengthen the power of your created word. The subconscious mind will accept it once there is repeated exposure.
- Affirmations should be stated in the present
The mind nor the spirit knows what WILL means. There is no future and no past to then. So speak in the present.
This does not eliminate bad outcomes, but by focusing on being positive and making affirmations, we will lessen the problems and manifest only minor setbacks.
If you have a friend who you think will benefit from this, use these affirmations:
I have limitless energy. My potential is boundless.
I believe in myself and my ability to do everything I choose to do.
And I am grateful for all that I have, for all that I am.
