Affirmation and positive psychology practice is a beautiful tool for emotional support and encouragement. It helps to deal with stressful things in life, tiredness, and exhaustion due to family and work obligations.
Affirmations help you to change your thoughts and help to reprogram your subconscious mind in a positive way. In some cases, affirmations can even help those who suffer from some form of anxiety, depression, agoraphobia or any type of emotional disorder such as anorexia or bulimia.
Naysayers brush off the whole affirmation concept saying it is just temporary words that serve no purpose. They view affirmations as just a beautiful lie that people tell themselves to feel better and ignore the real problem at hand.
The truth is, the words of affirmations don’t have to reflect your reality or be the words of truth. The primary purpose of saying affirmations is only to uplift your thought process and shift it to a positive place. Positive words create a positive way of thinking. From this positive state of mind, you will find the strength to sort out and resolve any problems of yours and update your external reality to match the internal.
Do not use affirmations as a thoughtless belief to get the desired effect in emergency situations. For example, if you have a case of appendicitis, saying words “I am healthy” is not going to treat it. In this case, you should receive appropriate health care or take care of yourself.
Affirmations can be greatly beneficial in helping us to feel uplifted. They inspire us into action. The affirmations remind us of all the great things in the world. The positive quotes help us to learn from the wisdom of the many great individuals that have lived before us.
Below are the few affirmation tips to help you feel better.
Focus On The Positive
Everything that we experience with our five physical senses is conveyed through vibrations. Your thoughts are vibrations. All your emotions are vibrations where ‘unconditional love’ is the highest and most complex of the emotional vibrations and ‘hate’ is the densest and low-vibrational emotion. When it comes to achieving your goals, you need to learn how to take affirmative action and use positive affirmations to shift it toward the life you need to have.
When you are ready to change your thought pattern and vibration, send your intention and energy vibes to the universe. Open your mind to the possibility of positive change and miracles.
Some people recommend practicing affirmations on a daily basis for approximately 5 minutes. During the practice you allow the energy of positivity to flow into your body. However, do not force the affirmations or put any type of pressure on it. The main point of affirmations is to feel good about your own words and thoughts. It’s all about feelings and energy. The energy of positivity and truth helps you to align with the particular reality scenario you wish to attract.
Affirmations are especially good for people with low self-esteem issues who are convinced that they are not worthy of something. Usually, they accept their own negative thinking as a concrete fact, even if it is not true. Instead of telling yourself a negative story, use affirmations to tell yourself a better, more positive one. Repetition is important since it will re-enforce how you want to feel.
You can re-word affirmations making them close to reality and more powerful. For example, instead of using the affirmation ‘I am very good at public speaking and giving presentations’, you can use ‘I am in the process of improving my public speaking skills.’ In addition, use past memories of positive experiences to boost the positivity of your affirmations.
Don’t Get Attached To Your Desires
Very often, people get so obsessed with their dreams that they develop an emotional attachment to the objects of their desire. They start to overthink everything, and, as a result, unable to change anything. They create an energy of obsession or addiction, which is low-vibrational energy. Because like attracts like, low-vibrational energies usually don’t manifest desired positive results.
All physical things in the world are just tools that serve their purpose. For example, money is a resource that gets people other things, and a car is just an object that carries people to desired destinations. If you need a certain thing to appear in your life, don’t get obsessed with material things, but instead, think about its purpose in your life. In addition, don’t overthink how you are going to get it. Practice affirmations for about 5 minutes, believe in your words and then let the mental image go.
Many things depend on your own belief system, as you will manifest them accordingly to your beliefs. For example, if you used to think negatively about yourself and constantly comparing yourself to others, now is the right time to change this paradigm of self-hate and ‘not deserving’ mentality into the positive energy of love.
If you have complete confidence in a positive outcome, it will manifest. Once you really believe you can achieve something then you will be guided on the correct path receiving it. The manifestation process does take time and concentration.
After practicing your affirmations daily, you will notice some changes in your daily life. It will shift your mind into a more productive and positive reality, allowing your everyday life to take a similar route. Your subconscious mind will operate on a different frequency, a different vibration, and a different wavelength.
By saying positive affirmations over and over again, you will create some immediate feel-good thoughts that help you to shift into your new reality. Where our minds go, our reality follows.
