I am often asked about affirmations, how to use them, and whether they really work.
I am sure you have heard about affirmations, but in case you didn’t, affirmations are positive statements, which describe in positive words a desired situation, event, habit or action, and which are repeated many times, so that they get into the subconscious mind and influence it. By repeating them, you program your subconscious mind to help you manifest your goals, change your habits or develop new skills.
It is not enough to repeat affirmations just a few times. This is one of the reasons for the failure to get results, and which eventually leads to losing faith and giving up the use of affirmations.
If you wish to use affirmations and get results, I would advise you to start with small objectives at first, in order to get some experience. It often happens that after a few days of repeating affirmations the mind starts raising doubts about the efficiency of affirmations. If your goal is a small one, it takes a shorter time to achieve it, and therefore the mind has less time to raise doubts.
Small success at first, will strengthen your faith in the method, and the resistance of your mind will diminish.
For affirmations to produce results, they should be repeated often, with attention, interest, desire, feeling and inner conviction. Don’t stand in their way by raising doubts and thinking negatively. It is also important that you don’t just affirm, stay passive and wait. Follow your intuition, do things and take the opportunities that come your way.
How do affirmations work?
# They motivate you to do something, in order that you attain your desires and goals.
# By repeating affirmations, you become more aware of opportunities that might surface, and which could make your aims and goals come true.
# Affirmations can strengthen your ambition and desire.
# Affirmations that you repeat often, with attention and emotion, affect your subconscious mind, behavior and habits.
# They program the subconscious mind to bring up helpful ideas for making the affirmations come true.
# Affirmations activate the power of the subconscious mind, which will supply the desire, ideas, opportunities, and even the right circumstances.
