Affirmations


Affirmations are a healing tool that can make you feel better about yourself to gain control of your life. They adjust your attitude during daily routines thus empowering you to believe that you can create what you need for happiness and success in life. An affirmation (from Latin affirmare, to assert) is the declaration that something is true.

In spirituality and personal development, an affirmation is a form of autosuggestion in which a statement of a desirable intention or condition of the world or the mind is deliberately meditated on or repeated in order to implant it in the mind. Affirmation could be viewed positively as a mobilization of one's inner resources, or negatively as a kind of self-induced brainwashing, depending on the psychological depth and wisdom of the affirmation. For example, "I am making more room in my life for success every day" is a much wiser affirmation than "I will win the lottery today!" Affirmations can be a very powerful means of reprogramming the unconscious mind. They appear to be most effective when repeated in a quiet and restful state of mind and body.

Daily affirmations may change negative thoughts to positive ones. You become more assertive, self-confident, and happier. You learn to be kinder and more accepting of those around you realizing that everything does not revolve around you and your needs. They may be expressed verbally, read, or written down.

There are many books and websites that offer suggestion for daily affirmations.
