Affirmations are nothing more than a string of words, however, which will not make a difference unless you know how to use them for maximum effectiveness. When you give you positive affirmations power and energy, they take off, go out into the universe and attract back to you all the health that you desire. You must give them power and energy in order to get your results. You must believe them to be true. This may go against your current logic; you may play a tennis match in your mind, for awhile. However, you must believe your affirmative thoughts to be true in order for them to work. As the Bible says:
“ Whatsoever thing ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye have received it, and it will be yours.” -Bible
Affirmation, is the metaphysical term for Prayer, so it is true to say, “if you believe your desire has already come to you, is must appear, it must come to you.” First, become aware of your negative thoughts, replace them with positive ones. Second, believe your affirmative thoughts to be true. Lastly, give your affirmative thoughts power and energy. There are two ways to give your affirmative thoughts power and energy: repetition and emotion.
Repeat your affirmations often. Say your affirmative thoughts in the morning, during the day and at night. Write them down. Post them throughout the house so you see and read them continuously. Make them your default pattern or way of thinking. When you notice these positive affirmations running through your mind in the middle of the night and in your dreams, that is when you know you are on the right track. That means your affirmative thoughts are now running through your subconscious. Focus on what you do want, not on what you do not want, do not focus on lack or limitations, focus on the end result of your ultimate desire, to feel good, to be healthy and well.
Additionally, fill your affirmative thoughts with positive emotions. Feel the love, joy, passion and hope with every affirmative thought that you have. Think of how it feels to be loved, that unconditional love, from your partner, child, or pet. Feel the warmth in your heart. Remember that feeling. When you practice and repeat your affirmative thoughts, feel the warmth in your heart, feel the health, feel the joy of having good health, believe it is on its way to you right now, the affirmation must go into your subconscious and become a knowing. Using strong emotions is a powerful way to give your affirmations the energy they require to send them out to the universe or your Higher Power and speedily attract your desires back to you.
“ You can have anything you want…. You must want it with an exuberance that erupts through the skin and joins the energy that created the world.” -Sheila Graham
