An affirmation is essentially anything you say or think. Much of what we tend to think is negative, thus creating a negative experience for us and perhaps even for those around us. But what if I told you that by retraining your thoughts, you have the power to change your life? Would you do it? What if it’s easy and requires only a few minutes a day?
It’s really quite simple but it will require daily practice for a minimum of 17 days. That means that in 17 days you can either eliminate something not serving you in your life, or create something new and desirable. Try to understand that every time you get mad, you affirm that you are willing to attract more anger. Likewise, every time you feel that life isn’t treating you fairly, you reinforce that you are unlikely to ever reap the abundant goodness life can offer. The goal is to replace old patterns with positive new healthier patterns that will help us manifest our dreams, visions and purpose.
By starting the day with a positive thought, “Today is a new day and I am going to have a great day,” your day is more likely to be positive. However, saying it once in the morning is not enough to make that affirmation work. It is key to prepare the environment for your affirmation to thrive in. You wouldn’t plant a vegetable garden in the desert and never water it, right? If you consider your affirmation to be like a seed that you’d plant, that seed needs conscious attendance and care, if it is to grow into something bountiful.
A solution is to check yourself throughout the day and maybe even set your smartphone alarm to remind you to RE-AFFIRM your positive thoughts so that they overcome the negative ones and promote a more consistent sense of positive well being.
Bodhi Derma skincare products offer affirmations. You can work with one affirmation for several days in a row. Consider taking a photo of the affirmation, set your alarm for every 2 hours and check in with that affirmation throughout the day. That’s a sure way to get it ingrained into your consciousness…… and just see what shifts in your life.
- I let go with grace and ease
- I love and approve of myself
- I am worthy of universal abundance
