We have become so accustomed to negative self-talk. We do it all day long only we never actually stop to notice. I’m not saying that you have to monitor every thought that pops into your head, but being more aware of your ongoing thought patterns will help you to cut out a lot of that destructive chatter and replace it with the more constructive kind. A great way to start is with an affirmation.
What is an Affirmation?
An affirmation is a simple statement. It should reflect how you’d like to feel. Don’t worry, you don’t have to convince yourself that it is true. You are not lying to yourself or deluding yourself by uttering something that is in contradiction to the way that you feel naturally. All that you are seeking to achieve is a change in feeling state.
Imagine each statement with its own unique vibration. Words contain the power to release miracles. It’s not the spoken word itself, more the feeling it creates, also referred to as a vibration.
So all that you need do, is think of these statements as little spells. A bit of magic contained in a few words that takes you seconds to speak or say in your head. Cool eh? When we affirm the negative to ourselves over and over, we are in fact creating more of that with the vibration those words create.
Repetition – Is it necessary?
A little for sure, but you certainly do not need to repeat them over and over parrot fashion. In actual fact, this is counter-productive after a while as you start doing it with no attention to the word. It’s then much like a daydream v’s a feeling visualisation. It doesn’t have the same power.
I use affirmations but I might repeat a statement five or six times during one day. After a week or so I will take note of my feelings on the subject. I generally feel lighter and a couple of weeks later I have stopped using the affirmations naturally as I have achieved the feeling state that I was looking for.
