People often ask me 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 often.
The repetitions sink into the subconscious mind and influence it to act accordingly.
By repeating the affirmations, 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, which eventually leads to losing faith in the affirmations and stop using them.
If you wish to use affirmations and get results, it would be a good idea to start with small goals 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 get weaker.
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, seize opportunities and act.
