All affirmations have to be positive and present tense. Quite simply they have to be stated as if you are already experiencing the change you desire.
Here is a quick guide on how to create affirmations yourself. To get you started.
- Take a moment to think about how you would like your life to be.
- Jot down the things that are most important to you e.g a fulfilling job; a happy family .
- Make positive statements from your list. Thus for the two examples above the affirmations would be “I have a wonderful job that fulfills me on many levels” and “my family relationships are loving and harmonious”.
- Be aware that when you start this you are very likely to encounter resistance within yourself. You may feel foolish, you may find thoughts like “Who are you kidding” when you make a particular affirmation. All of this is perfectly normal, you have been thinking the same kind of thoughts for practically all of your life and they have become a habit. Now you are going to start a new habit and so you will need to practice regularly.
Have a go… what have you got to lose? As Louise Hay says “it is only a thought and a thought can be changed”.
