How To Use Affirmation Properly

“I think, therefore I am,” is a phrase affirming your existence as a being. It may be a simple phrase, but it says everything about the person saying it. This indicates a confidence that is not commonly found among other living things. Makes you feel kind of special, huh?

But do people need affirmation? And why do people need to follow this unique thought pattern? Is existence relative to one’s affirmation?

Affirmation is a very powerful technique used to empower one’s subconscious. Once the subconscious is disciplined to believe one’s affirmation, the latter is converted into a positive action for the conscious mind. Through affirmation, beings are empowered to act, to work, and to strive for more things. Affirmation allows people to believe in themselves, and to put their thoughts into action. It is a force behind that which motivates you.

Affirmation is a combination of verbal and visual techniques of a preferred state of mind of a person. Strong affirmations can be very powerful, and can be used by almost anyone to achieve his goals and fulfill his desires. However, the power of an this depends on how strong or weak an affirmation is.

Affirmation is merely an assertion made by a person, about something or about a state of being. A person can affirm those that he chooses to attain, like “I now have a good life.” Being healthy in mind, body, and spirit can also be made possible through this method.

A strong affirmation should be stated in the present tense to be more effective. An affirmation of “I am now a happy being” is more effective than an affirmation saying, “I am going to become a happy being.” Affirmation should always be in positive terms because it is supposed to work for you and not against you. Instead of saying, “I am not sad,” why not make an affirmation saying, “I am happy.”  

An affirmation should be made up of simple but concise words, and it should be short to be more effective. A very long affirmation can work the other way around, instead of creating a positive mindset for yourself. A short affirmation can be easily spoken, and repeated easily on end - almost habitually. It serves as a kind of mantra that can be repeated over and over again.

To be effective, an affirmation must be repeated. Repetition works and influences the subconscious, which in turn motivates you into acting out your affirmation. When you create the affirmation, you should be deeply involved with the words you will be using, so it will be easier for it to manifest itself. Writing words that you believe in can be very powerful, and this can be put to good use when creating an affirmation.

However, creating an affirmation alone by itself, and repeating it a million times would not make it a state of mind. The important thing is to live your affirmation and to be open-minded enough to do the things that will help it become a reality. Feel, and apply it in your life - it will help make it a reality.

While affirmation is generally used to make you a better individual, it can also be used to boost or confirm another person’s value. By affirming another person‘s existence, you are helping him improve his self-worth.

Affirmation is a very simple thing that can make a very big difference in a person‘s life. It can be a great motivator and can make things happen.
