Every single thought we think, whether it is positive or negative is an affirmation. Every single word we say is an affirmation. Every single action or behaviour we take is an affirmation. All of our self-talk or inner dialogue is a stream of affirmations.

Positive affirmations are positive thoughts or statements that can motivate us and keep our mind focused on the goal that you are trying to achieve. Positive affirmations need to be repeated over and over again in order to re-program the subconscious mind and transform our behaviour, habits and actions accordingly. By believing and repeatedly stating what you already believe to be true in your life, you will mentally and emotionally see and feel it as true, thus attracting it into your life. You have the power to change the way you think and behave.

For positive affirmations to be highly effective, they must be personal to yourself and written in the present tense, i.e. “I”, “I am” and “I have” as opposed to “I will be”,” I try”, “I’m going to be”, “I want”, “I don’t want” or “I need”

Affirmations mirror the reality that you want to create. You need to create affirmations that are already true, and not as if you would like them to be true. Affirm with faith, love and conscious intent and believe that your desire has already been fulfilled.
