Affirmations can be used to bring positive and lasting change to your life. Every thought you have supports your mind in creating your moment to moment reality. Our beliefs are learned thought patterns that we have developed since childhood. Some of these thoughts patterns support our everyday life experiences and others sabotage us from achieving our goals and dreams.
Affirmations do not necessarily undo the early negative messages that we internalized, but they do allow us to build a repertoire of positive statements that can override them. This can be achieved by incorporating affirmations into our everyday lives.
Affirmations are simple, positive phrases that are repeated often to oneself. It is best to do this by taking a few deep breaths to calm your mind and body. Then repeat the affirmation to yourself as needed.
Some examples of affirmations:
“I have everything I need right now.”
“I feel loved and loving.”
“I am grateful for everything I have in this moment.”
“I am safe and at peace.”
“I choose to take this action.”
