What are Affirmations?
Affirmations are positive, personal statements that describe yourself as you would like to be – at your very best, without limitations. The more often you repeat these positive statements, the sooner you come to form positive beliefs about yourself. Then, with this new, positive mindset, you will then begin to attract and manifest the life of your dreams!
Alongside visualization, affirmations help to fulfil the second step of the Manifestation Process: the Believe step of Ask Believe Receive, as disclosed in Rhonda Byrne’s international bestseller, The Secret.
How do Affirmations work?
Affirmations tap into the most powerful law in the Universe, the Law of Attraction. According to this law, you attract everything that comes into your life by virtue of your thoughts; whatever you are thinking and believing, you are attracting to you. When you think positive, affirmative thoughts about yourself, and repeat them often enough that you believe them, then you cannot help but attract that exact positive outcome to yourself.
Of course, the opposite is also true – when you think and believe negative thoughts about yourself, you attract negative outcomes. Therefore, it’s vitally important for you to remember that whenever you think or say “I am,” the words that follow are manifesting with a mighty force, because you are declaring it to be fact. You are stating it with certainty. You are affirming it to be so! And so immediately after you say, “I am tired” or “I am broke” or “I am sick” or “I am late” or “I am overweight” or “I am old,” then by the Law of Attraction, that is exactly what you will manifest.
Knowing this, wouldn’t it be a good idea to begin to use the two most powerful words, I AM, to your advantage? How about these affirmations: “I AM receiving every good thing. I AM happy. I AM abundant. I AM healthy. I AM love. I AM always on time. I AM eternal youth. I AM filled with energy every single day.”
What is the right way to do Affirmations and how frequently should I do them?
You should do affirmations every day, or every second day, depending on how quickly you want to change your life. First thing in the morning or at night before you go to sleep are both powerful times to practice affirmations.
There really isn’t a “right way” to do affirmations. You can say them out loud if you feel comfortable doing so, or you can repeat them mentally. Try both and see which way feels the most powerful for you. Just take care that your mind doesn’t skip over them mentally. Instead, give equal emphasis to each one, and most importantly, really feel the meaning of every single affirmation.
Where can I find good Affirmations?
There are many resources online to find Affirmations. However, we have curated some of the most powerful Affirmations for you to use in our free app, The Secret Super App, which is available to download on iOS and Android.
What is the best Affirmation?
In his book, The Master Key System, Charles Haanel claims that there is an affirmation that incorporates every single thing any human being can want and will bring about harmonious conditions to all things. This affirmation reads as follows:
“I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy.”
This affirmation contains the absolute truth about you, but the point is, do you believe it? Because remember, only when you believe your affirmations can you manifest your best, most abundant life.
