Affirmations

Imagine a hillside in which deep grooves, or gullies, have been cut by years of rain, washing downhill. Now, whenever it rains, the water washes down the same grooves each time cutting them deeper into the hillside. They are now permanently etched into the hillside and carry down all the water that falls on the hillside. There are also deep groves in your mind. They are channels through which your thought-energy moves. They were cut in your childhood. Now they’re so deep that almost anything that happens in your adulthood will run down the grooves in your mind (Source: How Long Till My Soul Gets It Right, Robert M. Alter & Jane Alter)

 

Due to the way our brain functions, negative messaging tends to cut the deepest grooves. Affirmations are a way to re-groove your mind.

An affirmation is a short positive statement that can help you focus on goals, get rid of negative, self-defeating beliefs and program your subconscious mind. It is good to spend at least 5 minutes per day, saying and/or thinking affirmations. Some people say affirmations throughout their day as a way to offset the negative messages they received in the past and the negative messages that our society sends today.

Guidelines for Writing Your Own Affirmations

  • Make your affirmations short so they’re easier for you to remember.

  • Start your affirmations with “I” or “My.”

  • Write your affirmations in the present tense.

  • Don’t begin your affirmations with “I want” or “I need.”

  • Make sure all your affirmations are positive statements.

  • Create affirmations that you believe.
