“An affirmation opens the door. It’s a beginning point on the path to change.” Louise L. Hay
Affirmations are like seed planted in soil. Poor soil, poor growth. Rich soil, abundant growth. The more you choose to think thoughts that make you feel good, the quicker the affirmations work. Louise L. Hay
Do you believe in affirmations? Do you start your day with affirmations and prayers? As Louise Hay explains in the quote above, affirmations are seeds we plant for ourselves with words we choose to use daily; they can be negative or positive seeds. If we want positive results from our affirmations, we must repeat them several times a day, some suggest 50-100 times daily, ideally in front of a mirror. We could also write them down in a journal/notebook and then, each day, choose an affirmation and write it down about 15-20 times; over and over again throughout the day.
• We deserve peace and abundance. We are worthy. Only good meets us at the door of our heart.
“Belief consists in accepting the affirmations of the soul; unbelief, in denying them.” Ralph Waldo Emerson
The goal of an affirmation is to bring us, and others, a positive outcome, peace and abundance. But we must stay the course of making a positive difference in our lives. Affirmations are like a muscle, the more we use them, the stronger the expected results. Anything we do consistently and with conviction soon bears fruit… and that fruit might take 3-6 months or more to mature. I’ve added seven affirmations to this post. (you may replace We with I) Enjoy them with an open heart.
• We rise above the limitations of our past. We are present and fully engaged in our blessings.
• We answer in the affirmative to all the good around us. All our needs and desires are met.
“Constant repetition carries conviction.” Robert Collier
If you’ve lived, you’ve had your share of disappointments and hurts and they can take a toll on the human psyche. Even a mean word expressed in anger has tremendous energy behind it. If we can refrain from using those words on ourselves and others, the release will bring a lightness and joy to our space. We can start our day by standing in front of a mirror and repeating some of the inspirational affirmations included in this post or any you have written or culled elsewhere. One affirmation a day will suffice.
• We are the embodiment of love and it flows into the world like a tidal wave.
• We choose events and outcomes that invite uplifting opportunities into our lives. We are more than the sum of our experiences.
