Affirmations Can Change Your Life
Updated: Feb 14
Everything that you desire is already present in the spiritual realm. Your purpose here on Earth is to learn how to bring it into physical form. The good news is that you have this inner power to co-create your reality. To understand how to use this inner power, let's talk about the mind.
The mind gets its instructions from thought. Once the thought is mentioned, the brain only focuses on the subject of the sentence. The brain does not hear want or don't want. For instance, if you say, I don't want headaches. You may think you are clearly stating a desire, but all the brain hears is: headaches, and that is where the focus goes. So we must begin to tune in deeper and see how we are really using our mind and focus to co-create our lives.
What are affirmations, really?
An affirmation is a positive statement of support or agreement toward what it is you desire. When you write your affirmations pay attention to how you feel and make sure that the words you choose make you feel good or uplifted. Paying attention to this is a crucial step in effectively using affirmations.
The best + most effective way to begin using affirmations
When it comes to affirmations it is extremely important that the focus is clear, direct and pointed at the frequency you DO want. So your first step is to tune into your desires. I believe that your desires that pop up on your journey, are the whispers from the Divine guiding you on your path of what you need to create to help you achieve your mission on Earth. Once you tune in and list about 10 things you want, you are ready to go deeper.
Feel into what this experience would FEEL like
This vibrational level is more powerful than the base level of thought. When you feel into what you are trying to create, you are much closer to it. This brings you into the feeling space, and that is what begins the manifestation process.
Write Your Affirmations
You are now ready to turn those desires into powerful I am statements. Grab your pen or keyboard and begin creating some statements that make you feel empowered and alive. Here are some examples:
I am affirmations:
I am loved
I am whole
I am safe
I am open, focused + supported
I am in alignment
Feel Good Affirmations:
Everything is ok right now.
I choose peace in this current moment.
I see my body as whole.
I make the conscious decision to be happy.
I choose to be nice to myself.
I breathe out (insert your own) and inhale love.
Every decision I make guides me into my perfect body, image and life.
7 Simple Ways You Can Repeat Affirmations
This is where is gets fun. Rather than just saying it once and putting it away. I want to share my favorite ways that I recite affirmations that will open and awaken a whole new world within you.
1. Emphasize one word
Take your affirmation and count the words that are in the sentence This is how many times you will say this affirmation. Then emphasize one word at a time as you say the affirmation and then rotate words.
Here is an example:
This moment is enough.
This moment is enough.
This moment is enough.
This moment is enough.
Really feel into the word as you speak the bolded word and what that actual word means. It is a cool way to begin to bring feeling to the mantra reciting practice!
2. Drink it in
Write your affirmations on your water bottle or tape it on with a sticky note. Afraid people will think you are weird? Who cares, remember that they can't define you, only you can. With your affirmations as close to your water, you have this daily reminder to drink in the energy you are trying to create.
3. Get an affirmation buddy
Find someone who wants to work on self-growth over a 30 day period with you and join your forces to support each other. You could each text the same affirmation or a different affirmation to each other in the morning, or you could find a creative way to repeat an affirmation. Like day 1 repeat the affirmation 20 times, day 2 - 25 times, day 3 -30 times, and so on until you get to 30 days!
4. Schedule it
Create an event in your Calendar with the affirmation as the alert and put hourly reminders for it to pop up throughout the day. Here are some directions for the easiest way to do this is:
Put the affirmation as a repeating daily event in your calendar for 4:00pm (repeat for 7 - 30 days)
Set a custom alert to remind you of this event at 8 hours before, 4 hours before, and 1 minute before: (It will go off at: 8am, 12pm, 4pm)
When alert goes off, repeat this mindset 34 times in your mind
Or Set a timer for 90 seconds and just repeat “I love and accept myself just as I am” (or whatever your affirmation is) until the timer rings!
By 4:02 each day you will have planted this new mindset into your energetic field102 times.
5. Record yourself
Take out your phone and just open your voice memos and saying this affirmation for 1 minute right there. Then play this recording and listen to yourself saying this affirmation 3 different times during the day.
6. Say it backwards
Try saying the affirmation backwards and then forward and then backwards to shake up your brain waves, then repeat 100 times correctly.
7. Direct the Energy Inward
Point to your chest with each word and really open your heart to receive this!

Repeat After Me: I Become What I Believe.
Allow your desires to come to the surface and see them as little seeds that you can plant into your soil of life. Plant that seed with confidence and then water it with affirmations. This can help your mind focus on the direction you want to go. And remember, have faith. Your little seed IS growing, even if you have not seen any sprouts yet. You are a proactive creator, and just keep focusing on the way your desire feels already appearing in your reality!
