Do’s and Don’ts of Affirmations

Affirmations are some of the most crucial elements of spiritualism and improvement of your energy in the universe, especially in regards to the Law of Attraction, where you attract things to your lifeforce that will benefit you in the future.

Simply put, affirmations are an exercise for your brain and soul. In the same way that a pushup is an exercise to keep the body in shape, affirming your convictions on a daily basis is an exercise to keep the mind in shape.

The Benefit of Affirmations

Affirmations are one of the most important things you can do, because it reinforces the positive aspects of ones life. It reinforces what really matters – your family, friends, passions, morals, and beliefs. 

By reinforcing these on the daily, you are not forgetting them. Not only are you not forgetting them, but you are actively reminded of them. You are in a sense conditioning your mind to consistently appreciate what is truly important to you.

How to Affirm Properly

The best way to start your affirmations is with a series of statements regarding “I” – because remember, this is about you. Use these statements to remind yourself of all the positivity in your life.

  • I am grateful for….
  • I appreciate my…
  • I love my….
  • I am happy about…

DO NOT use this as a means of expressing gluttony or insatiable desire. Rather, use this as a way of creating manageable goals that you seek. 

It also imperative that you write these affirmations in the now. Do not invite the opportunity to procrastinate from your goals by using longer time frames, such as “in a year from now’ or “in a few months”. Rather, say “I am (-ing verb)”.

Be Honest and Truthful

The last thing you need to remember is that you need to be honest and truthful with yourself. The entire purpose of affirming your convictions is to keep them in your life. 

Lying to yourself will never work in the long run. If you really do seek to improve your daily life, and maintain an appreciation of the thing you have, then truthfulness is key.
