Whether you know it or not, whether you agree with it or not, we all use affirmations every day. In fact, humans have been doing that for centuries. Yes, articulating affirmations is like planting a seed. But there a big difference between planting a flower or a fruit tree that will bring you joy and happiness, and planting a weed that will only bring more weed and more misery.
We all “plant seeds” every day. We all have been doing that for many years by speaking about our mental, emotional, physical, social and financial states. When articulated with repetition, these words and thoughts work like magic and soon become a reality. Our reality.
Here are some of the statements you may be familiar with or have even said to yourself over and over again.
– I’m too fat.
– I’ll never get married.
– I’ll never get ahead.
– I don’t have money.
Maybe at that time, you didn’t realise that an affirmation is still an affirmation. It is anything you repeatedly declare, write down, perceive or believe accompanied with your emotions. Whether positive or negative. When you spoke out about all those negative feelings, it’s like you asked for more of them.
Your brain doesn’t know whether the things you’re thinking about, and in reality asking for, are the things that you want or the things that you don’t want to have in your life. It just accepts them as a reality and then acts accordingly. It takes you in the direction of that “truth.” Why is that? That’s the way our brains have been wired. We have been pre-wired for disaster, you might say. Not exactly if you know how to use your brain properly.
When you stand in front of the mirror and say to yourself “I’m too fat,” your brain will understand it as you are some kind of a sumo fighter who needs to put on more weight. It will actually make you feel bigger and put you on the track to become even bigger. On the other hand, when you say to yourself words like “I get slimmer and slimmer every day,” it puts you on a completely different track. Then you start to focus on the positive aspects of your body, you’re beginning to focus on them and there is a possibility for you to improve on them. It’s about choosing the right direction which you want to follow.
Which direction do you want to follow? You want to become bigger and bigger or slimmer and slimmer?
Always think about what you’re wishing for and wish for the best. As long as you live your brain never stops working, it is always calculating the routes to get you where you want to get. Make sure it knows what it’s doing.
Think about all the things you’ve been saying to yourself, whether quietly in your mind or actually saying them out loud. All those thoughts are probably creating your reality today. If it’s not what you wished for it is time to start rewiring your brain. How to do that? Change all the statements to the positive ones. Give yourself some room for improvement. If you say to yourself “I get slimmer and slimmer every day,” you open the door to improvement and your brain will tell you what to do next to stay on that track. There are many opportunities if you ask me. A lot more than if you say to yourself, “I’m fat.” At that point, there is not much for you to do. It’s like you have arrived at your destination. Welcome to fatness. It’s done and there is nothing you can do about it.
Here are some of the other examples of positive affirmations that you want to use instead of the negative ones.
– I’m taking a new path to my destiny.
– I manage my money well.
– I attract more money into my life.
The power and energy of these and other positive affirmations are absolutely magnetic. Use them to become the best person you can be and put you on the right track to your desired destination.
