Here at Queens Healing Queens, we definitely recommend using positive affirmations. If you’ve struggled to design affirmations that work for you or if you’re new to the Law of Attraction and are not sure how to start using positive daily affirmations in the most productive way to program your subconscious mind, we are here to help!
If your experience with positive affirmations has been frustrating, confusing, or underwhelming, you are not alone, Queen. The good news is that you can find a way to actually make them work for you!
What Are Positive Affirmations?
In the simplest terms, the definition of affirmations is using “positive sentences that you repeat to yourself” to build up self-belief in the subconscious mind or defined as autosuggestion. This means effectively writing a list of affirmations that inspire and motivate you to be better and help you to overcome any inner barriers and/or self-doubt that you may have.
When you first start saying these phrases, they might not necessarily be true, and that’s okay. They should be designed to reflect what you want to be true. You need to make them powerful and unique to who and what you want to become. Then, over time, the consistent repetition of your affirmations will help to reshape your inner beliefs and assumptions about yourself and the world around you. This reshaping gives you a more positive perception of who you are and where you stand. The trick is that you have to truly believe your affirmation to be true.
According to the Law of Attraction, what we think and feel shapes our reality. Remember, Queen, you are the architect of your reality. The power of affirmations lies in their ability to transform your external world by first changing your internal one). In addition, you can use affirmations for all kinds of goals, from self-confidence to career success, love, and abundance. There are no limits on what you can affirm except for the ones that you put in place.
Positive Affirmations: How They Can Change the Way You Think?
Daily affirmations are used to replace limiting beliefs. The more positive beliefs formed in your mind, the easier it is to create what you want in life…no matter what that is.
Benefits of Daily Affirmations
When you’re stressed, you can boost your problem-solving skills by using positive affirmations, and they can help you perform better under pressure. This is particularly helpful in situations like job interviews or even first dates!
Daily affirmations help you vibrate in alignment with abundance, rather than lack. This can help you manifest your Law of Attraction goals at an even faster rate.
Affirmations make you more aware of your thought processes. Greater awareness makes you more likely to challenge negative thoughts as they arise. This also enhances your self-knowledge, making you better at knowing what you really want in life.
Positive affirmations reconnect you with feelings of gratitude and enhance your perspective on the good things in your life. This can boost your happiness as well as your vibrational frequency.
Positive affirmations are good for your body and your subconscious mind. By changing the way you think, you can help to slowly transform your entire life.
Using Positive Affirmations: When is The Best Time to Use Them?
There is no right or wrong answer to when is the best time to use affirmations. Most people prefer to use affirmations in the afternoon or evening; however, there is a far greater benefit when using them in the morning. The main reason is that if you use your affirmations in the morning, you are effectively setting your day up by starting out in a positive frame of mind. Plus, saying powerful affirmations when you wake up can help you shake off any negativity from dreams or block your brain from filling up with any problems or difficulties you may be facing.
We, at Queens Healing Queens, say our affirmations the first thing in the morning as well as before we go to bed at night. That way, it definitely sets the tone for our day, but as we sleep, it’s being ingrained into our subconscious mind. This is just another form of autosuggestion.
Taking it a step further though, the best thing to do is affirm yourself constantly throughout the day to maintain that way of thinking. Our advice is for people to always try these things and notice the difference in your life and what an impact it can have. Of course, when you’re first starting out, it’s best to make this the first thing you do every day. We even write our affirmations on post-it notes and put them in places that we can consistently see them.
How to Use Positive Affirmations
Take three deep breaths, inhaling and exhaling to a count of 10.
Stand in front of a mirror and look yourself in the eyes. Smile, if it feels natural.
Say your affirmation (or list of positive affirmations) slowly and clearly.
Repeat the affirmation(s) 3-5 times, really focusing on the meaning of each word.
Take another three deep breaths, allowing your body to absorb the positive feeling of the affirmation(s).
In addition, note that it’s important to set aside a specific time that you dedicate to your affirmations. They are much less powerful if you rush through them on the way out the door rather than taking the time to truly visualize what you are saying.
Let’s now look at some specific types of positive affirmations and how to use them. Remember that you can always play with the wording of your affirmations. They are deeply personal and finding the most authentic way to phrase them always adds more power.
This is our own personal affirmation:
I experience peace, happiness, prosperity, and wealth as integral parts of my life.
It is completely safe, easy, and natural for me to be prosperous and successful.
Prosperity flows towards me freely every day in every way.
Affirmations for Money
Affirmations for money are ideal for you if you’re trying to manifest currency (which is just an energy within itself). Many of us have negative beliefs about the value of money or about our right to have it. Affirmations can help us see our relationship with money in a better light, thereby helping us attract it.
For example, you might use something like:
“I am ready, willing, and happy to receive money.”
“I am letting go of all negative beliefs I have about money.”
“All areas of my life are abundant and filling.”
In addition to saying it in your morning routine, you might repeat it before money-related situations.
Affirmations for Love
Love affirmations and affirmations for romance can work wonders for your self-confidence and ability to attract love. They help you connect with the reality of love and encourage you to believe that it is possible to find.
One common example is: “I am attracting my soulmate, and my life is already full of love and joy.”
This affirmation is related to the Law of Attraction ‘knowing’ technique “living as if.” The key idea here is to act and speak as though you already have the love of your life. This can draw that person to you more quickly.
Affirmations for Self-Love
No matter what your Law of Attraction goal, affirmations for self-esteem can make a difference. They speak to the heart of self, helping you believe that you are the kind of person who attracts good things.
Everyone has different weak spots that they may want to address with self-love affirmations. A good example is: “I am overflowing with love, joy, and positive energy. I can do anything!”
Here are 5 more self-love affirmations to try today:
“I respect and love myself!”
“The only approval I need is my own.”
“My mind is bursting with bright ideas, kind words, and happiness.”
“I accept my power.”
“I am worth loving. There is love all around me.”
Affirmations of Healing
Whether you’re struggling with a physical, mental, or emotional issue, daily affirmations for healing can empower you. They reinforce the belief that you can get past your current hardship. Plus, this type of daily affirmation can help you access your deepest sources of strength and recovery.
One healing affirmation you can try is” “My body [or mind] knows how to heal itself, and it is healing itself right now.” This creates a harmonious union between your soul and your body, unifying their energy and promoting greater well-being.
Affirmations for Success and Prosperity
Affirmations for success and prosperity are an important weapon against our tendency to self-sabotage.
For example, you might want to try: “I am confident, capable, and achieving everything I set my mind to.”
“Every experience I have is perfect for my growth.”
Law of Attraction Affirmations
Some of the most powerful affirmations are brought to life most significantly by understanding and using Law of Attraction methods. Law of Attraction focuses heavily on training your subconscious mind from limiting and often damaging beliefs that are instilled in us throughout the course of our lives. Therefore, Law of Attraction affirmations specifically target the areas of your life that need improving and help you believe that you really can attract all of your dreams by improving self-perception. They are also designed to ensure that you keep constant attention to your thoughts and behaviors as your day progresses. By becoming more conscious of the way that you perceive yourself, in turn, this helps to combat the limiting beliefs that might otherwise creep in to create a negative reality.
An example of a Law of Attraction affirmation that can be adjusted to suit you would be: “I am attracting a better, happier life every day, and I trust the Universe to give me exactly what I need.”
