Practising Affirmations


Affirmations With Feeling

Before beginning, ask yourself if you really want what your positive affirmations are affirming. Should you have any doubts or are not really sure about what you want, your doubts will get in your way. Doubt is one of the reasons why people do not achieve results with affirmations, and then they lose their belief in the power of affirmations. Practise your affirmations with love, faith, feeling and interest. Feel and believe that your desires have already been fulfilled and this will accelerate the fulfillment of your affirmations. It is only natural for your mind to raise doubts and negative thoughts, especially if your current environment and situation are very different from what you want to achieve. Stick with it and do not let your negative thoughts and doubts defeat you.

Affirmations Routine

The power of positive affirmations lies in repeating them to yourself regularly. For positive affirmations to be successful you need to repeat them several times daily:
  1. Allocate at least one special time each day, preferably first thing in the morning;
  2. Do them wherever you are, whenever you have the time;
  3. It is also a good idea to repeat your positive affirmations as soon as you start a negative thought or behaviour pattern that you want to overcome.

Affirmations Procedure

Establish a procedure for your affirmations. Try not to rush through them and try not to rush off when finished as they are much less powerful if you rushing through them on the way to get somewhere else or doing something else. An example procedure may look like this:
  1. Prepare for your affirmations, maybe taking a few deep breaths, inhaling and exhaling to a count of 10.
  2. Say each affirmation slowly and clearly, 2 to 5 times and really focus on the meaning of the words.
  3. When finished, take time to let your body absorb the positive feeling of the affirmations, maybe taking a few deep breaths, inhaling and exhaling to a count of 10.

Morning Affirmations

Some people prefer to use affirmations in the afternoon or evening. However, the benefit is far greater if you use them in the morning. The main reason is that if you use your affirmations in the morning, you begin your daily routine in a more positive frame of mind. You should therefore see benefits throughout the whole day. In addition, repeating positive affirmations when you wake up can help you eliminate any negativity from your dreams or difficulties from the previous day.
