Affirmations are a powerful tool you can use to influence change in your life. Many people wonder do affirmations work and are they worth the commitment. I will explain exactly how affirmations work and why they do indeed work.
How do affirmations work?
Affirmations are positive statements that are repeated out loud in order to change your beliefs, habits, and thought patterns. Many of the great success authors advocate using affirmations daily. With repetition the subconscious mind accepts the affirmation and the statement becomes part of your way of thinking.
Why do affirmations work?
If we repeat affirmations daily the subconscious mind will accept the affirmations as true. The subconscious mind can be directly influenced. It does not filter what it receives and it can be influenced by repetition. Therefore we can change our thoughts and beliefs by repeating affirmations. Many people don’t understand exactly how the subconscious mind functions so they ask do affirmations work. The subconscious mind is a very powerful tool that few people understand and make use of.
Tips on using affirmations
Make sure you use the right tonality – When reciting your affirmations you must say them in a powerful, positive, and loud tone of voice. For example if your affirmation is “I am happy and I radiate happiness” and you say it out loud in a depressed low tone it won’t have any effect. You have to say that particular affirmation in a happy, loud, and bubbly tone of voice. For any affirmation you can figure out what the right tone of voice is, make sure you feel the emotion of the affirmation.
Feel the affirmation – The feeling behind the affirmation is what makes it work. If you your affirmation states “I am confident and I love myself” you have to feel confident and love towards yourself in order for it to work. The subconscious mind is highly responsive towards feeling and emotion. Be sure to feel the words as you recite them.
Be consistent - Consistency is the key if you want to create changes using affirmations. Make a commitment to recite your affirmations every morning right once you wake up for a month.
If you implement these 3 tips into your affirmations I guarantee you will see results. If people would stop asking do affirmations work and put the principles into practice they would be able to create the positive changes they desire.
