What is affirmation?
-The Key to Success
An affirmation is a statement that is carefully crafted to address an unwanted pattern and transform it through the use of positive thought. An affirmation or affirming statement can be a phrase that is written down or a statement that is repeated verbally. An affirmation may also be an audio recording that is listened to repeatedly. Affirmations focus attention on the positive outcome of a situation, and are structured to affirm that the positive outcome is already a reality. For instance, a person who has developed a pattern of unfulfilling relationships may affirm, "I am full of love, and I experience meaningful personal relationships now". The usefulness of affirmations is most succinctly summed up by the phrase, "Thoughts are things".Experts on the effectiveness of affirmations explain that the subconscious mind is always responding to our inner dialogue and self-talk. Further, our subconscious mind is using our beliefs and self-talk to create our experiences and our lives. Our inner beliefs and self-talk may be rooted in limiting beliefs that were formed early in life that do not assist us in achieving our goals and dreams. For some, painful and dysfunctional life experiences have created a self-defeating inner dialogue. The use of affirmations has been compared to a positive form of brainwashing. Through the use of affirmations individuals seek to reprogram the thoughts, feelings, and self-talk that is influencing the subconscious mind, thus changing their experience and their life.
Affirmations are statements that spell out our desired future - statements that can change our life for the better.
