Affirmations are short, positive statements that can be spoken out loud or silently to ourselves.
Through the practice of self-affirmation, the subconscious mind is fed with positivity, helping to ease and dissipate any negative thoughts that may be lingering.
Affirmations have been shown to boost hormones and chemicals in the brain leading to more positive thoughts and life experiences.
When we engage in the practice of self-affirmation, it is like we are planting seeds within the brain; with daily nourishment, fresh and happy new thoughts will begin to grow and flourish.
In the beginning, it can certainly feel a bit odd to say these things to your self, especially if you have been known to be hard on your self in the past. It may seem unnatural and in many cases quite difficult to speak these affirmations aloud, this is where silently repeating, or writing them is just as effective, and a little less awkward.
A lovely piece of advice from the Chopra Center Blog regarding getting started with affirmations is:
Some examples of self-affirmations are:
~ I am strong and confident
~I am patient and kind
~I am productive and healthy
~ I will avoid negative conversations
~I will show compassion
~I trust myself
~Loving myself makes me feel good
So speak your intentions, affirm yourself and believe that you can tackle and take on anything that you put your mind to.
The mind is an extremely powerful place, and when infused with positivity and hope, the possibilities are endless.
