Affirmations are simple but effective powerful statements that you can say to yourself on a daily basis in order to help you to achieve whatever you desire!

Affirmations are a conscious thought or prayer, usually a sentence or two long which will be repeated several times during the day.

Affirmations are sayings that are designed to focus on a positive thought, and when you say them or even hear them, they will eventually become the thoughts that create your reality and your future.

Affirmations can be about anything, including things you want, goals you want to achieve or just a positive thought, that will uplift your mind or make you feel better about yourself and the world around you.

Remember: “We are what we think. All that we are arises with our thoughts. With our thoughts, we make the world.” – Buddha

How do I use them?

When you affirm something it means that you are declaring it to be true, so in essence when you are repeating your daily affirmations you are saying that you have already achieved what you want.

It is important to repeat your daily affirmations regularly so that they are engrained in your subconscious mind, this way you will automatically think a positive thought when you are faced with difficult situations.

After all repetition is what builds habits.

Here’s a simple guide to using your daily affirmations:

1. Before you start, ask yourself what you really want from life, what you want to achieve, have or be.

2. Choose the affirmations that best suit your desires and needs

3. Set out some time during your day to repeat them to yourself, while visualizing your goals (looking in a mirror to do this will help at first)

4. Believe every affirmation with all your heart, and feel the words and the emotions as you repeat them to yourself

5. Say each and every affirmation in a positive manner

6. Trust is key when it comes to affirmations, you must trust that what you are visualizing in each affirmation has already been given to you

7. Avoid any negativity in your affirmations

When you write your affirmations, just remember to avoid negativity, dispel any doubts you may have and believe fully that you already have what you want!
