Positive affirmations are one of many great tools that help us to harness the power of the Universal laws. After browsing through this site's list of positive affirmations, choose a few to create a shortened list of affirmations that you will reference every day.
The word affirmation simply means an affirming statement. However, the references to affirmations here are about the consistent use of positive, affirming statements for the purpose of creating positive change.
Positive affirmations help you dive into positive thinking, change your point of attraction, and release any resistance that may be hindering Law of Attraction and manifestation. However, there are a few pointers that you should consider in order to get the most benefit from affirmations.
You may know by now that the thoughts you think offer a vibration into the Universe that summons Law of Attraction. When you’re thinking positive thoughts, you are offering a high energy vibration that enables the manifestation of your desires. This is why a list of positive affirmations is so highly recommended for those who want to change their lives.
So why don't all people have success with the use of affirmations? As with anything, there is a way to do it and a way to do it effectively. Let’s discuss the latter.
How to effectively use your list of affirmations
The easiest way to know if you're benefiting from affirmations is to pay attention to any shifts in your vibration. If you’re wondering how to do that, it is simple. Just notice changes in what (or how) you are feeling each time you write, speak, or think an affirmation. Be honest with yourself about what is going on inside of you. This makes the difference between making empty, hollow statements and actually benefiting from this activity.
In other words, don’t limit yourself to saying words or writing them on paper. Your emotions are evidence of the vibration that you’re offering into the Universe and what you are attracting, so notice how the affirmations feel to you. If you’ve been sick for many years, you may not feel enthusiastic or encouragement when you say, “I am overjoyed with the excellent health of my body.” In fact, you may just feel more frustrated by your current situation.
Affirmations are strong, powerful, positive statements, but they do not benefit you if they are too drastic a jump from your current state of mind. If you find that a particular affirmation makes you feel worse because it is too far from what you really feel, try doing the Focus Wheel process. This process, created by Abraham Hicks, is a way to guide you to thoughts of relief without jumping directly to a positive thought that you aren’t ready for. After using the Focus Wheel process, you will feel relieved enough about the subject to move forward with the related positive affirmations. Note: A video explanation of this process is included at the end of this page.
Once you are emotionally ready for affirmations, you can experience life-changing results. The more time you spend writing or speaking affirmations, the more you are thinking thoughts that align with your desires. If you are thinking and affirming these positive thoughts often, they will become your dominant thoughts. Very quickly and easily, your dominant thoughts become your beliefs. And Law of Attraction will always send circumstances (manifestations) to match your beliefs. So, choose a few positive affirmations and remember to use them all throughout your day.
