How to Make Affirmations Work for You?
Affirmations have a lot of power. They have the power to change your life in unimaginable ways, but only when used properly. Even after regular practice, many affirmation practitioners fail to achieve the desired result.
The issue isn’t with affirmation science itself, but with how it’s used. In order to employ affirmations properly, a series of guidelines must be followed in order to get the intended results.
In this essay, I’ll explain how affirmations work and answer the most frequently asked question about how to use them effectively.
This piece of knowledge to affirmations can help you make your affirmations genuinely work. Change your life by harnessing the law of attraction’s power. Now is the time to get started on the proper path to transformation!
I read an incident that I’m going to share with you right now, and it’s the perfect illustration of how you can start your affirmation with your powerful thinking.
During the India-Pakistan split, a bus full of refugees was crossing the Indo-Park border. It was a tense moment [and the vehicle stopped in a particularly sensitive spot in the middle of the night because its wheels had become stuck] in the mud,
The bus driver asked the passengers to exit and assist in pushing the bus out of the mud, so the passengers did so.
They began pushing with all of their might, energy, willpower, and attention, but the bus refused to budge even after half an hour of pushing.
After a while, the driver discovered that half of the passengers were pushing from the front of the bus, while the other half were pushing from the back, explaining why the bus was not moving.
We often put forth a lot of effort to attain what we want in our lives, with attention, willpower, dedication, and everything [yet we’re still stuck on the bus].
It is immobile. What causes this to happen? This occurs because an equally powerful force, our own subconscious mind, is rejecting all of our efforts. Today, I’ll show you how you may use affirmations to retrain your subconscious mind to achieve positive changes in your life.
Take a glance around you and consider your own life.
Keep track of your success and setbacks. See where you’ve made some progress and where you’ve been stuck for a long time. What led to your current life circumstances, of course, were your own activities, which were the product of many decisions you’d made at various times.
Those decisions were a result of your thoughts and thought processes, therefore [if you want to create a good change in your life situation, you must first modify those unhelpful thoughts and thought patterns.
For example, thoughts like “I’m not good enough,” “I’m not pretty enough,” “I’m not smart enough,” “I don’t deserve to be successful,” “I don’t deserve to be loved,” “I’m not good enough,” “I’m not good enough,” “I’m not good enough,” “I’m not good enough,” “I’m not good enough,” “I’m not good enough,” “I’m not good enough,” “I’m not good enough,”
How can we possibly identify and alter a single bad thought pattern?
Let me share another perplexing information with you. 95 percent of our thoughts occur outside of our conscious awareness, so how can we manage something we aren’t even aware of? The answer is to use affirmations.
What are affirmations and how do you use them?
Affirmations are positive utterances that have the capacity to alter the subconscious roots of our beliefs and behavior patterns, resulting in good changes in our life.
Indeed, when you repeat affirmations with deep concentration and intensity, they reach your superconscious level of consciousness, which aids in bringing about unbelievable changes in your lives.
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
When using affirmations, the first thing to remember is to be very careful and attentive of how you word them. For example, if you want to achieve success, you can use an affirmation like this:
“Within me lies the power to achieve anything I set my mind to, and behind every act lies the boundless power of the cosmos.”
Another powerful technique to structure your affirmation is to state what you want in the future as if it has already happened in the present tense.
So, if you wish to live a healthy lifestyle, you can say:
- I am in good health
- I have a lot of vitality
- I have a lot of energy.
Here’s a little suggestion to keep in mind:
Please repeat affirmations until you are completely sure of their effectiveness. So, if you don’t feel very confident, an affirmation like “I am confident” won’t help.
So, if you wish to live a healthy lifestyle, you can say:
It’s preferable to say it like this every day: “Every day, I’m learning to grow in confidence.” Point number two: This is a suggestion that will help you gain more impact from your affirmations.
Use varied intonations of your voice to repeat your affirmations. For example, you can begin by repeating your affirmation out loud, which will bring your conscious mind to attention.
Then, as you become more familiar and comfortable with your affirmation, begin repeating it quieter and softer, almost in a whisper, to allow the words to sink further and deeper into your subconscious mind’s layers.
Even while repeating affirmations gently, remember to say them with inner intensity. Finally, you can say the affirmation in your head while feeling the force of the words and listening in deeply to the energy behind them.
At this point, your affirmation has reached the subconscious level and is quickly bringing about the intended changes. Remember to repeat your affirmation with deep faith and conviction, feeling and awareness, concentration and focus, and, of course, repetition.
When is the greatest moment to say affirmations again?
Do you recall that as a student, everything you studied just before going to sleep and just after waking up tended to stick with you better?
This is because these are the times when our brains are transitioning from the subconscious to conscious and conscious to subconscious, therefore your subconscious mind is constantly repeating the affirmation and rewiring your thought pattern, isn’t that wonderful?
Another great moment to repeat affirmations is right after you meditate. When we meditate, we access our superconscious mind, which gives our affirmations more strength. If you don’t see quick results when you begin affirming, don’t be discouraged. It has taken years and years of programming.
Please give the process some time to reverse itself in order to actualize your current reality, and realize that you have already taken charge by beginning the dismantling process of breaking a pattern in which you had been stuck for who knows how long.
Finally, not all affirmations have to be formal; you can repeat an informal mantra throughout the day, such as this one: “All is good in my world at the end of the day.”
Every idea you have becomes an affirmation, whether positive or negative, so let your optimism manifest itself in your thoughts, habits, decisions, and actions, and ultimately in your life’s reality.
