Creating affirmations might seem like a 'no-brainer' at first glance. But wait... like any other skill in life there is a right and a wrong way to create them.
Creating affirmations the wrong way will result in nothing more than wasted time. You will frustrate, get discouraged with your progress and end up being one of the legions saying 'Affirmations don't work!'. But affirmations DO work and they can work for you. Right here you will find out how to create affirmations of the highest quality.
So rather than create them the wrong way or even worse -- end up programming yourself in destructive and negative ways, follow the guidelines below and succeed!
Here are the nuts and bolts of creating affirmations - awesome life changing, brain reprogramming, affirmations...
Determine the 'voice' your affirmations will have.
There are three possible voices to use:
First person affirmations look like this:
Second person affirmations look like this:
Third person affirmations look like this:
Third person affirmations are interesting because you can insert your own name into the declaration - like this:
Consider the length of your affirmation:
When you create affirmations they should be short and sweet...
The reason for this is because you're sending a message to your subconscious rather than your conscious mind...
The more complex the statement the more likely your subconscious mind will not receive it.
For example -
Set the tone -
Your affirmations should always be active and strong..
Words that suggest that you might fail must never, ever appear in your affirmation statements.
See how these statements move you ....
They don't, do they?! You can recite statements like that till you're blue in the face and you will experience no change in your life whatsoever -- None. Zip. Nada.
Your subconscious mind will give you exactly what you tell it..
Repeating an affirmation again and again will embed that statement in your subconscious mind - eventually it becomes your reality. Be uber careful what you think and affirm, ... what you affirm is what you will manifest. What you think, you will become.
The other part of tone is positive or negative statements. Creating affirmations needs to be done with a positive twist..
It is best to say "I am now relaxed and calm." rather than "I have no stress".
The issue with "I have no stress." is the word 'no'. When you put that little word in there, you have to think about what 'no stress' means...
That will force your mind to focus on stress with the likely result of creating MORE stress.
If someone was to tell you not to think of the red faced monkey, what happens?
Creating affirmations means focusing on what you do want rather than on what you do not want.
Affirmations are time sensitive.
Keep your affirmations in the present tense. Consider -
A well crafted affirmation does not reflect your current reality. Why use affirmations to affirm something that is already part of your character?
The purpose of affirmations is to create radical success by changing thought into physical / mental / emotional reality...
... a reality that does not exist in your life at the moment. No matter what your goal is - be sure of this - with the right affirmations expertly crafted, you WILL change.
You WILL experience radical success.
