What are affirmations and how they can change your life?

I was one of the most negative people I ever met in my life. I was always unhappy and uninterested in everything. There was a part of me which always liked craving for bad thoughts and it made things around me used to affect me more than they should have. This all changed when I tapped into the power of affirmations.

What is affirmation?

Affirmation is a positive though or action that you put into the universe. Whatever you want is out there in the universe you just have to believe in it and ask for it and work for it and it shall be yours. Many a times we work for it but we forget to believe in it and ask for it.

Your affirmations should be your spiritual guide to achieve your goals. Your affirmation can be created with respect to your goals. Each and every person on this planet has a goal, sometimes it just takes a little bit of time to realize it.

Affirmation can be anything you say or think so why not focus on something positive.

Do affirmations work?

Yes, they do. But it doesn’t mean that you will write 5 times in a book that ‘I am happy’ and you will suddenly be happy. Your affirmation should be backed by a strong emotion or a feeling. You need to believe in it and in turn your subconscious mind will believe in it.

Even if you don’t know there is a group of people who are hoping the best for you, you won’t be close to them or will be talking to them everyday but your sub-conscious picks up on these things. The support system and the Universe is ready to hand you whatever you want. You just have to accept the opportunity and work on it.

For example if you want to lose weight then find out why you want to lose weight. If your motivation is wear a certain type of outfit, they close your eyes and visualize yourself in that outfit. How do you feel when you see your crush eyeing you in that outfit. That feeling can be used as a backing emotion to your affirmation ‘I am wearing a rocking jumpsuit after losing weight.

If somebody is giving you an opportunity to change your life then take it. Universe has given you a chance, take it. There are many people who will stop you from taking the chance. You read a bad review about a course that some unknown person has written and you miss the chance to learn something that could have changed your life.

You want to learn to dance, then join a class and learn. There are many people even the ones closest to you will ask ‘Why’. They might be meaning good in their own head but they are not you. Have the affirmation and the confidence in yourself to do whatever you want.

How affirmations change your life?

You don’t need to a believer of God or atheist to start affirming your goals. Affirmation is all about building self belief. If you believe in yourself then everyone around you will work out. The universe gives you the tools to achieve whatever you want but affirmations will help you identify those tools around you. The more time you will spend on believing in yourself, less time will be spent on negative energy and thinking about the bad things that are never going to happen to you.

Affirmations won’t stop the bad or difficult situations in your life, but it will help in better navigation through these events. They will help you clear your mind and focus on your goals.
