Affirmations can make you feel good and are a great source of encouragement, but do they really help you get what you want out of life?
An affirmation is something that you state earnestly and positively. With the Law of Attraction, when you declare something and feel something over and over again, the Universe will bring back to you what you are thinking and feeling.
So does that mean if you affirm something that it will come to you? Yes and no. The affirmation alone will not bring you what you want but the affirmation with the feeling, that you already have what you stated, will bring to you what you desire.
Make sure to find or create affirmations that are just right for you. One great way of creating a powerful affirmation that works for you, is to ask yourself, "What do I want?" For example: Let's say you want more money. Maybe you have a little trouble with thinking that you deserve money or that you believe that you have to work long and hard to obtain money. You need to create an affirmation that will break you of the limited beliefs you have about money. Find the words that will work to inspire and encourage you when you hear the affirmation. Discover the words that will give you that feeling of knowing that saying your affirmation will make it come true.
Do your best to make it only a sentence or two. When you create an affirmation, sometimes there are so many thoughts you want to get into the affirmation that it becomes so long that it takes you weeks to memorize it.
Maybe your affirmation would be as follows: "I deserve money and money comes easily and effortlessly to me." When you have created your affirmation say it a few times to see if you believe it and if it feels right to you. If it does, then you are in business. If it doesn't feel quite right change one or two words and then see how it feels. The key words here are 'how it feels'. This is even more important than the affirmation itself. The feeling connected to what you are saying is what will bring you the same feeling situations back to you via the Universe. The words are what give you the image connected to your feeling that causes what you want to come to you.
If you only had the feeling alone, you would have situations and people attract to you with that feeling. If you just had the words with no feeling, they are just words that will bring you the image but with the unintentional; no feelings attached to it. The image that you obtained might not be satisfying.
Have a clear affirmation and a clear feeling when you are repeating your words. See it, feel it, and know that it is now a part of you. This affirmation will merge with your very being and you will one day wake up with your affirmation no longer an affirmation, but a physical manifestation.
It's good to have a couple of affirmations that mean the same thing to you. Sometimes one can become boring and you will attach boredom with that particular affirmation. You want to rotate your list of affirmations so they feel new and inspiring to you. Read your affirmations when you are in a quiet space. This way you are giving attention only to what you are focusing on minus distractions. If you find yourself repeating them over and over again but not hearing a word or feeling anything, it's time to shake them up a little. You don't ever want to rush through an affirmation session.
A great method for saying affirmations is in front of the mirror. It may feel uncomfortable at first but looking yourself in the eyes and saying the words can help you get right to your soul.Take the time to think up some great affirmations just for you. They will help you obtain what you desire through the Law of Attraction.
