Affirmations

What are Affirmations?
Affirmations are positive statements made in the present tense designed to counteract a negative belief you currently hold.

Affirmations support the changes you want to make in your life by directing ‘positive affirmed’ statements based on the area in your life you want to change. This is achieved by the repetition of these affirming phrases. They can have profound effects as the changes start to take hold and break through your limiting thoughts and beliefs.

When using affirmations you are attempting to convince yourself something is true.

Definition of an affirmation:
1. the act of affirming or the state of being affirmed
2. a statement of the existence or truth of something; assertion
3. something declared : a positive declaration
4. (Law) a solemn declaration permitted on the grounds of conscientious objection to taking an oath.

It is important to note that the beliefs we currently hold were probably put there by affirmations without knowing it. For example when we first participated in an activity which perhaps didn’t go as well as we expected, the experience cemented a thought that we would think every time this activity came into our experience. The repetition will eventually make it a belief.

This applies to anything we read or see if it feels true to you or continues to activate the same response.

This is not always a negative thing. When you first burnt yourself you learnt not to do it again!

This applies to all areas of our lives. There are so many of us that grew up with parents, guardians, teachers or those we saw as authority figures that instilled their limiting beliefs in us.

Once you start using affirmations you will begin noticing the negative statements others make on simple matters. You will be surprised.

I used to play a game where I would pick up on the negative twist and words used by news presenters and reporters before I stopped watching and reading newspapers altogether!
