Affirmations are thoughts, words or a phrase that are constantly repeated until they enter the unconscious mind and becomes part of your ‘programming’.
Most of us affirm unconsciously all the time. We consistently repeat thoughts until we anchor them in our mind. We make the same statements again and again, until they become our reality.
Our constantly repeated statements may be both positive and negative. Your unconscious mind does not discriminate, and accepts all information. Therefore, your affirmations enter the files of your unconscious mind and profoundly affect how you feel and act, your emotions, day to day activities, and ultimately, your entire life. The more energy and emphasis we put into our affirmations, the more deeply they enter our belief system.
If you constantly think ‘I am a failure’ you will gradually believe that you are indeed a failure. For example, if you constantly repeat that you always have miserable holiday, you bring it about in three ways.
• Your selectively remember only the bad times.
• You act in ways that cause you misery.
• The Universe brings to you what you believe.
The Law of Affirmation states that you bring about what you affirm. Affirm that you are what you want to be. You will become it sooner than you think. The Universe rearranges itself to give you what you believe.
Make sure your affirmations contain only positive words, and speak (or write) your words with energy and intent.
Affirmations must be said in the present tense. For example, if you affirm that you are going to be healthy tomorrow, tomorrow never comes. It is better to affirm ‘I am healthy now’. It helps to hold the vision and bring it about. Keep your affirmations simple. Affirmations which are rhyming or rhythmic slip into your unconscious mind easily.
Affirmative words help us to focus upon the positives, and helps us escape a fearful mindset. Affirmative words heal our thoughts, and brings a positive reality into our lives. What you believe and expect is what you experience.
Visualization, like affirmations, is based upon the Law of Karma or Cause and Effect … whatever you see and believe eventually become a physical reality. Holding onto your faith and trust forms a mold for your outer reality. However, if your faith wavers or your desires, goals and/or dreams constantly flit from one image to another, your outer reality will reflect this fear and confusion.
Visualizations can instantly come into our reality if our minds accept this as a possibility. However, when we feel undeserving or afraid, we try to force our dream into reality. Our visualizations become pressure-filled and tense, and this tension can block the goal coming to fruition. When you visualize and believe in your goal completely it is able to come about. Our demeaning judgements and limiting beliefs of ‘I couldn’t possibly achieve that’ or ‘I’m not good enough to achieve this’ puts tension on our visualization, which in turn stops us from manifesting our inner visions.
False feelings and thoughts and beliefs of ‘I lack ….. time, money, connections, education, intelligence … ‘ or whatever keeps people from even trying to achieve their goals and life purpose, and puts a halt to any positive visualizations coming into reality.
Metaphysically, we are able to create whatever we may desire. What we focus and concentrate on always manifests into the physical plane. This is the Spiritual Law of Cause and Effect or the Law of Karma.
Manifestation requires faith. As humans we usually have more faith in that our fears will turn into reality, rather than faith in our dreams and aspirations becoming a reality.

Everything in the material, physical world is a reflection of our thoughts and beliefs.

Using Affirmations to Bring About Positive Change
One of the most important keys for eliminating insecurities and establishing a habit of self-love is the use of ‘affirmations’.
* expressing in words what we honestly want, and who we honestly want to be; then repeating those words or phrases over and over until the subconscious mind accepts them as fact, so that our behaviour will follow accordingly.
* Through affirmations we can think ourselves healthier, stronger, more positive, more handsome, prettier, kinder, more patient, more confident, more courageous - whatever will help us love ourselves more.
* There is a logical, but often overlooked reason why affirmations work: they are direct communication with the ‘soul mind’, and the soul mind, with its eternal knowledge and wisdom, always recognizes and resonates with the truth.
* An effective way to reinforce your affirmations, and your deepest wishes, is to write them down in the form of ‘Letters to the Universe’. Your letters can be addressed to God, the Universe, your Spirit Guides or Angels – whomever you feel most intimately connected to your own Divine power. Include plenty of affirmations in your letters. Within your letters write down, very specifically, everything you really want, including your physical, emotional and spiritual wishes - the most rewarding life is a balance of all three.
Adapting a positive perspective changes negative thought-forms to positive ones. Using positive affirmations is a way to achieve a positive attitude and frame of mind. Another way is through verbal declarations.
Our voices and the words we use send a vibration and energy out to the Universe. Using positive words and declarations sends out positive energies.
Affirming and declaring in a positive manner also helps to break the habit of negative thought-forms, patterns and belief-sets.
Declare your affirmations with determination and state your intentions loud and clear and with true meaning. Put your heart and soul into it. Remember to affirm what you want to be as if you are already. This is a quick route to where you want to be … then act as if it has already become your reality.
