What are affirmations and how to use them?
Firstly, affirmations are positive phrases, statements or a declaration. Secondly, their purpose is to guide you to new positive habits and experiences you want. As well as, create new subconscious pathways. Hence, they powerfully shift your vibration. Certainly, if you use them with feeling. As a result, you attract to you what you desire and what you are affirming. However, repetition is necessary.
I am happy
Thank you for this…
I am successful
Or, I truly love what I am doing
I have mastered this…
For some more examples of affirmations which relate to healing your chakras.
How do positive affirmations work?
By repeating ‘positive affirmations’, it creates a positive vibration within your energy field, or aura. With, the added benefit of reprogramming your subconscious mind. However, it is essential to carefully select positive affirmations. Because, they are very powerful to use and attract your desired experience to you. As a result, your energy field will be amplified, if your subconscious mind is aligned and accepts your affirmation.
How many times should I say them?
Every moment you can. Because, the more often you repeat them, the quicker your results will show up. Also, plan and set a regular time of the day to actively work on them.
Do they really work?
Absolutely Yes, and No. For instance, if you are in full alignment with affirmations, they do work. However, if you don’t fully believe them or even want them, they will not work.
Why don’t affirmations work?
EFT and Reiki. So, I uniquely align the right techniques for you and with you, so that they work. The main reason positive affirmations don’t work is the internal conflict. You see, affirmations target the conscious level of your mind. So, only after repetition and alignment does your subconscious begin to shift. Understand that, the conflict comes from the subconscious mind. Also, it uses up a great deal of energy and creates massive tension and resistance in the body. For instance, a traumatic event can create this conflict, which remains with you. Until, you clear up the conflict with healing techniques, like
Also, if you don’t activate the feeling while repeating the affirmation. As a result, the affirmation is just a meaningless word.
Some more big reasons affirmations don’t work
Is, if there is a contradiction going on inside of you. Such as, you don’t really want the affirmation to be true for you. For instance, your subconscious mind has a very valid reason and fully believes you do not want it to be true. In particular, this is a block that needs to be cleared first.
With each positive declaration, your subconscious will say, “yeah right, it’s not true, what a load of rubbish, it’s not possible!”Also, If you don’t fully believe it is possible. As a result, it feels like you are lying to yourself.
You could also, be saying it all wrong. Yes, this is possible. For example, if you use the words “I will..”, instead of, “I am…” Using “I will…” it creates the energy vibration of it going to happen in the future. This is not active now. However, there are times you can safely use “I will…”. Such as, you are shifting out of an internal conflict. Important to note, that this would be a short lived affirmation.
How to create positive affirmations
Find your driving force behind your affirmation
In addition, your driving force is very powerful. It is the reason you want to use an affirmation. So, aiming directly for the experience or event you wish to come forward to you. This means, it is something you don’t have in your life, yet. It is, your desire for something to happen. You do want to access the vibration within. So, you need to find out why you actually want it.
How you may Ask?
Simple ask yourself, “Why do I want….?” & “What will my life be like if I don’t get it…?” & “Am I stressed about getting it?” your subconscious will reply. Write down the answers that come up for you.
Now that, you know the driving force, you are far more likely to get faster results. So, it is always good idea to ask the questions before creating and using the affirmation. This is a key exercise to eliminating blocks of internal conflicts.
How to write affirmations for success with consciously using the law of attraction
- Start with the words like “I am”, “I have”, “Thank you for”
- Use the present or past tense of what you want to create or experience in your life.
- State it in the positive.
- Keep it brief.
- Make it specific.
- Include an action word ending with –ing.
- Have at least one emotion or feeling word. More importantly, just feel it.
- Creat your own affirmations.
- Ask yourself – Do I believe it is possible? Am I open to allowing myself to experience it? And, How will I know when I have a result?
Ways to do them
To truly amplify the vibration of success, you want to repeat affirmations while looking into your eyes in a mirror. Thanks to the teachings of Louise Hay and her mirror work, I discovered how powerful this technique is, and I saw how my vibration shifted. My body language was the big giveaway with this exercise. It was a sign I did not believe what I was affirming. After I cleared my block my new vibe was visible and the affirmation attracted fast results.
