Affirmations for a positive life


Start seeing yourself having the life you’ve always dreamed, and replace negative thoughts with positive suggestions that override stress, anxiety, and low confidence. Affirmations are an effective tool to change your internal vocabulary, and set yourself on course toward a life you never imagined before.

What are Affirmations

Affirmations are one of the best ways to shift your perception of yourself at a subconscious level. Many of us are unable to experience a better life due to mental barriers, and destructive belief patterns that hold us back. We are our own worst enemy at times. But when these barriers are removed the possibilities of our life become limitless to what we can do, and achieve.

There has been thousands of studies on using affirmations for healing around the world from many cultures, Here Dr Phil Shapiro explains more insights.

“The science of affirmations teaches us how to send powerful positive thoughts to our conscious and subconscious minds and to the cells in our body as chemical, electrical, and magnetic waves. Through a simple maneuver involving free will and choice, we learn how to deploy our own thoughts to break through limitations, transform bad habits, turn failure into success, and activate our healing powers.”

Our thoughts have leverage in the inner workings of our cells having to do with transforming disease into health. By using affirmations to cultivate spiritual qualities, we stimulate healing power. When we align our thinking with such qualities as peace, compassion, and understanding, we set up harmonious conditions for the healing power to do its work. The right condition for healing is a mere thought away.

The Science behind Affirmations

New research published in Psychological Science, a journal of the Association for Psychological Science, explores the neurophysiological reactions that could explain how self-affirmation helps us deal with threats to our self-integrity.

“Although we know that self-affirmation reduces threat and improves performance, we know very little about why this happens. And we know almost nothing about the neural correlates of this effect,” says lead researcher Lisa Legault of Clarkson University.

Why Use Affirmations?

There is a constant battle between the conscious and subconscious mind, and when we are not equipped, or aware of how our mind works, it makes positive change much harder. We may have good intentions using willpower, and brute force to overcome bad habits, addictions, and wrong thinking, but if these intentions are not ingrained subconsciously they will most likely never happen. For this reason affirmations are an effective tool,  because they cause the brain to accept positive suggestions as facts. The beauty of this process is that positive things start happening in you, and around you without effort, or force.
