Using affirmations for transformation
Transformation doesn’t just happen in the change of seasons; we can use the quiet in between days to make change in our lives.
The beginning of a new year happens in the middle of a season, but even if you're in the southern hemisphere and the cool weather comes later, you can think of the middle of winter as a time to nestle down, keep warm and reflect.
What do you need in your life and what is needed in order to bring it forth?
Affirmations are a great way to help in the transition and transformation of your life. They’re easy to create, and they’re the best way to train your brain to match the vibration to what you want. Of course, repeating a sentence won’t do all the work. You’ll still need to work for things, and you will still need to believe in yourself, but I can assure you, it will make it easier and faster for you to achieve anything once your brain is on your side.
Affirmations are a powerful tool to help us create.
They align your vibration with what you are asking for, so it is manifested in the physical plane. Use your affirmations as many times as possible to align your thoughts with intentions.
Here are a few rules to help you create the most effective affirmations:
Avoid the word “want”. Don’t use negatives.
If I tell you not to think of a yellow car, the first thing your brain will do is show you a picture of a yellow car. So, write your affirmations in a positive way that’s constructive for you
and takes you closer to your goal.
Don’t use words like ‘never’, ‘everyday’, ‘all the time’ and ‘forever’.
Doing something “forever” is a little unrealistic – especially because forever is a long time and puts too much pressure on you. Remember that the idea of affirmations is to ease your way into what you want.
Avoid impossible goals.
You can have whatever you want in life, however, I recommend doing it step by step.
For example, you want a Ferrari, but you cannot even afford a bike. There are no rules to prevent you from cutting out a picture of a Ferrari and putting it on your fridge, but it’s more realistic as a short-term goal to create an affirmation like,
“I have the abundance I need to purchase the
car of my dreams”.
Repetition, repetition, repetition
You’re trying to rewire your brain. Doing your affirmations over and over is what gives them the power to be embedded in your subconscious. This means that the opportunities are presented in your life.
Not so much a rule, but a great tip is to practice affirmations in different tenses, so you’re covering a broad range of limiting beliefs. For example: I am lovable, she is lovable, Monica is lovable. In this way, I am not only reprogramming what I believe of myself, but also reprograming “what I believe” others think of me.
Now it’s your turn. What is it you need to say to yourself to rewire your brain to bring your goals and intentions to fruition?
Give it a go and if you have some success, I’d love to hear about it.
