A statement of words that describes an intention in it’s already complete state.
What we say to ourselves are a collection of words, habit of words and meanings, which either serve us or don’t.
An affirmation is a positive sentence or thoughts that when repeated several times a day can help to change the way we think. The direct definition for affirmation is: a positive declaration; something declared to be true, a positive statement or judgment.
When I heard about affirmations I was completely unaware of my thoughts because like most, I was on autopilot, trying to survive my life, going from one moment to the next unconsciously getting through the days. Usually when I hear about something new three times it has my attention, so I started paying attention to what I was thinking and saying. I decided if I made a conscious effort and came up with a new sentence of my own, something I didn’t believe in but heard if I kept saying something over and over it could come true. I thought, “what the heck I have nothing to lose.” I spent several days coming up with this and would change the wording a little now and then but at the time my first affirmation was “I have all the money I will ever need and I deserve every penny of it.” This was way out of my comfort zone but I had nothing to lose so I put this sentence on things like my favorite shoes and I wore it. Saying it many times a day, writing it, making it a daily habit and ya know my life truly started to change within a few months. Not the way I thought it would but it lead me on a new journey which caused me to make more money than I could have imagined. Honestly it was the beginning of my own personal empowerment.
We have belief’s that limit our relationships, how we feel about money, our success, and our health — truly every aspect of our life. All our choices, attitudes, feels, and quality of our life are affected by our thoughts and words. The models before us lead the way in our early childhood programming. They were not aware how it would affect our life and so on through generations.
The good news is that today is a new day and WE have choices. We can notice what we say and choose to continue saying it and thinking it or come up with something new. We can overcome any limiting beliefs. Something new is called affirmations, empowering thoughts and conscious statements we want to believe in.
Practice just like you did when you learned to speak, walk, ride your bike, or drive a car. All of these things gave you independence and didn’t happen overnight. Each day with practice you improved. With affirmations it’s best to say them out loud many times a day, write them, bask in them, sing as a song and wear them as your favorite robe or slippers.
Be on purpose and choose new words, new thoughts, allow new inspirations because it leads to your greater purpose.
