"Your mind will always believe what you tell it. Feed it hope, feed it truth, feed it love."
Our subconscious mind is POWERFUL. It is the reason we think, behave, and take the actions that we do in life. Always set on autopilot, our subconscious is responsible for everything we do with little to no thought. When you are driving home after a long day, listening to music, and thinking about what we will eat for dinner, our subconscious mind is the reason we reached our destination. It has been programmed through repetition, the directions for us to reach our home without us having to hit our GPS for guidance.
All of our routines, bad habits, childhood traumas, fondest memories and even the conversation the couple behind you in the grocery checkout line were having, all are stored in the subconscious mind. When we want to break a habit or make deep profound changes, we have to reprogram this part of our mind in order to have long term success. This is where affirmations come in.
What Are Affirmations?
Affirmations are one highly effective way to reprogram your subconscious mind. What you hear and say repeatedly you will start to believe in time. Once you are successful in changing your beliefs, your thoughts, the story you unknowingly tell yourself regularly, and your energy starts to shift and the actions you take in life begin to change. Next thing you know, your reality is completely different.
Every day our subconscious mind is remembering something. The thing is, many of us are not mindful of what it is we are exposing this most susceptible part of our brain too. When we start becoming aware and protecting our subconscious mind by intentionally choosing what we want it to remember, that is when we take control of our mind and our life. Saying affirmations is a way to tell your subconscious exactly what you want it to think and believe.
“Affirmations are our mental vitamins, providing the supplementary positive thoughts we need to balance the barrage of negative events and thoughts we experience daily."
I have listed six powerful affirmations below. Say these affirmations as often as you can, and you will start to see the changes in what you believe and how you think. The key for affirmations to work and be effective is repetition. So make sure you are staying consistent and saying these affirmations at least twice a day.
Also really feel and put positive emotion behind the words as you say them. I suggest focusing on one or two affirmations at a time and working with them for at least 6 weeks. Also, try creating your own affirmations. Use the phrase “I am..” to help trigger your subconscious to remember what it is being told.
“I am fearless, proactive, consistent, and filled with love of self and others. I am worth every millisecond of happiness and every drop of joy that comes my way. I am attracting to me every second of every day more happiness, more peace, and more love into my life that I am worthy of receiving and that I welcome in with open arms. Life is great and I am so thankful to be experiencing it.”
“I am an effective communicator. I communicate with clarity, understanding, and openness. I express myself in a manner that others are able to comprehend and understand me. Yelling, screaming, shouting, cursing, and speaking out of anger is not an option for me. I listen, process, and respond powerfully and discerningly, so that my words create rather than destroy.”
“I am so happy and so grateful for all the prosperity, abundance, and opportunities that flow into my life easily and effortlessly. Every day I am presented with unexpected money, unexpected love, and unexpected mercy from unexpected people and in unexpected ways. I am so blessed and favored!”
“I am living a life that is healthy and limitless. My body is free from illness, disease, toxins, and viruses that do not serve me or my wellbeing. I am healthy inside and out and it radiates outwardly for the world to see. This body of mine is toned, flexible, and curvaceous with glowy smooth skin. I exude femininity and my vibration is so high that I attract all of my wants, needs, and desires.”
“I am an extraordinary woman of value and I attract to me extraordinary people who add value to my life. My relationships are healthy, balanced, and fulfilling. The people in my life are loving and genuine because I am loving and genuine to myself. They are honest and trustworthy because I am honest with myself and trust the decisions I make in life. I am so happy and so grateful to be blessed with such amazing friends and supporters.”
“I am a graceful, classy woman with values and standards. I have my own style and march to the beat of my own drum. I am extraordinary and I move through life as such. I walk and talk with confidence and silently demand respect from all those who are in my presence. I speak fewer words and let my energy do all the talking. I am a powerful woman. My light can not and will not be dimmed.”
I hope these affirmations help empower you and assist you in mastering your mind.
Until next time...
