The power of affirmations

A lot of people use affirmations or have at least heard about them. Some people find they are good , other people only seem to get average success . What makes affirmations work – or could an important question be ‘do affirmations in truth work?’.

it is simple to dismiss a thing if it doesn’t work at first, but sometimes a thing that completely work could take a little while to practice.

Affirmations will be genuinely effective, as long as you follow some of the rules for creating and utilising them.

What is an affirmation?

An affirmation is saying things like ‘I am confident’ repeatedly to yourself.

it is a little like making a suggestion to yourself. Effective suggestions work by completely becoming able to accept them, so if you actually don’t believe it, they won’t work as effectively .

Another thing which is important is to say the affirmation in a way that is as if you believe it. If you say ‘I feel confident’ in a weak and feeble voice, it won’t be that effective. If your final result is to build your confidence , say it as if you believe it (just pretend you do if you don’t! – It may make a big difference!).

Using suggestions can take   several weeks of consistent use preceeding they become effective. However with practice they may totally become effective . You could even have a monumental influence on your health . I used to get nose bleeds that would remain for ages , however now I could just suggest ‘the bleeding is ceasing ’ and a nose bleed will stop within moments . This might take a lot of practice, but it’s worth the practice to get awesome results.

So here are some principles to follow to create effective affirmations to help you accomplish your big picture:

1 Mull over your vision carefully

2  Write your affirmation – make sure you state it positively – what you   wish , and not what you don’t desire . it’s easy to know what we don’t desire like ‘I don’t desire to be anxious’ but when you say this, you must focus on the thing you don’t   wish .

3  State it positively , for example ‘I feel composed and confident’

4  Stand in a way that matches the affirmation – if it’s about being confident you will find it helpful to stand as if you are confident.

5  Say the affirmation out loud in a way that corresponds to the affirmation. How would you repeat it if you absolutely believed it? This will totally make a difference. Repeat it 10 – 20 times.

You may repeat this many times throughout the day – keep doing it for a few weeks

The more you do it the more effective it will be


For affirmations to become really effective, you absolutely want to build upon your ability to communicate with your unconscious mind.

A genuinely outstanding way to develop your unaware communication is to learn NLP or hypnosis. I regularly see clients for hypnotherapy in London, and they may achieve amazing results when they develop their unconscious communication. NLP is a very effective tool for change.
