Jan 20, 2019 What are positive affirmations are and how do they work? aren't nearly as powerful as statements that contain words like “am” and “do.”.
Why are these simple messages of truth and love that can change our lives so absent in culture and the environment that raises us?
Why do we have to discover these positive affirmations by accident and feel like we have found a new gold mine whereas almost all of it is found in ancient messages that still hold true?
I grew up with a lot of love – and I mean, a lot of lovefrom my parents, my relatives, my grandparents, and my childhood friends.
All of these are irreplaceable affections in their own right.
Reminder: You can still grab The Positive Affirmations for Life program with more than 4 hours of audio affirmations for 7 life situations that impact your happiness and success the most.
But the love was often overshadowed with a lot of fear, shame and guilt imposed by our guardians and authority. I don’t mean fear, shame and guilt for wrong-doing but for doing anything that was not “the norm” (the norm itself being anything but normal or sensible).
The overflow of affection in our culture cannot be matched, I admit, but it is rarely about teaching a child to be positive and confident in life, or about believing in their own abilities to make smart choices or to follow a dream. It is about making sure they follow the rules, with obedience always being the measuring stick above all things.
If you didn’t grow up being told just how unique and special you are, how capable you are of everything you want to become, how normal it is to have dreams outside of the norm, and how much you matter to this world, this blog post is for you, darling!
If you want to be happy and successful in your own life, a positive, fierce, proud and happy person without shame, learn how to be confident, and love and approve of yourself with these guided affirmation audio tracks. Use them daily and you’ll see results in your moods and happiness levels in 7 days at the latest.
Where did I get these affirmations? I have read the work of Louise Hay and adore her to pieces and I may have a few of her phrases or words but they are mostly altered to fit my own language. She is truly my source of inspiration, that much I admit openly. However, just as Louise recommends, I wanted to put together my own affirmations for you and encourage you to use them as they are or feel free to change the wording even further to adopt it as yours.
You may laugh, you may sneer, you may not believe a word of these affirmations but if my engineering logic-oriented mind can come around to believing them and watching them bring happiness to my life and profit into my business, I have high hopes that it can help you too.
Affirmations work best in the PRESENT tense, just as you see below, and when you say them consciously and preferably loudly (if the circumstance permits!). Also, it helps to adopt positive BELIEVING as well as positive THINKING as you embrace these words in the situations that arise in your life.

A list of the best daily positive I am affirmations for men & women to help you attract success abundance money & more!.
Affirmations are very powerful. Your subconscious mind does not think in terms of past, present or future. If you affirm that you “want” something, then you get “the wanting” but you don’t really get the thing that you are wanting.
To get what you want, affirmations must be at present tense!
When you say I AM HAPPINESS, then life will provide you the means to have happiness. Replace I WANT affirmations with I AM affirmations. Inspire yourself from the below wonderful list of I AM affirmations and start to embody the power of I AM.
To have positive events in your life you need to think positively. Thinking positively is done with positive words. Inspire yourself from the list of positive words updated constantly at Positive Words Research since 2013. Read the below affirmations and feel them. Memorize the affirmations created with I AM and positive words. Repeat in your mind the affirmation that you need when you need it. Feel your affirmation by adding positive emotion to it. Example: “I AM BLISS”: add positive emotions to this affirmation by lightening up and radiating blissful happiness using the muscles of your face, basically make the muscles of your face become a big and large smile.
Human beings have two main powers on Earth: Awareness and Choice. Become aware of who you actually are so that you can make a good choice. You are a blessing. You are unique. You are a gift to the entire world. Learn positive words so that you can become aware of who you actually are. You are magnificent. You are Love. You are Pure Love and Light. Affirm it!
The power of the I AM affirmations can be better understood from this anonymous quote:
“I AM are two of the most powerful words, for what you put after them shapes your reality.”
Positive affirmations have become really popular, especially with the rise of social media.
You’ve probably seen Instagram, Twitter and Facebook posts that quote positive affirmations.
But what are these magic words that claim to transform your mind and your life?
As it turns outs, there’s a lot of science to back up exactly how a set of positive words can dramatically improve your mind and body.
In this article, we’re going to talk about what positive affirmations are and how they work. We’ll explain the ways you can use them in your life to create wealth, love, physical well-being and so much more.
Finally, we’ll instruct you on the best practices to use them in your life, including how to create your own positive affirmations for any situation.
Positive affirmations are so much more than just feel good quotes and positive statements.
In short, positive affirmations are statements that are repeated to encourage and uplift the person speaking them.
In reality, a positive affirmation is actually part of the language of the brain.
We’ll explain more about this in the next section, but for now, let’s look at the elements that make up a positive affirmation.
Because positive affirmations are written in the language of the brain, they follow a specific formula.
If you come across a quote on the Internet or in a book that claims to be a positive affirmation, but doesn’t follow this formula, your brain won’t register the thought accurately.
It turns out, our brains are pretty strict and straightforward about their language rules.
1) Positive affirmations are always in the present tense. If you see a positive affirmation that says “I will,” “I used to” or “I’m going to,” move on. Your brain only responds to present tense statements.
2) Positive affirmations only include positive words. If you see a positive affirmation that has words like “don’t,” “can’t” or “won’t,” it’s not a statement you’ll want to repeat. It takes your brain a lot of extra work to get past negative statements and transform them into positive ones.
3) Positive affirmations are spoken as statements of fact and truth. Statements that contain words like “might” and “could” aren’t nearly as powerful as statements that contain words like “am” and “do.”
Don’t worry, we aren’t going to get super scientific or technical here.
But there is plenty of research out there, if you’re curious.
Instead, we’re going to explain how your brain communicates.
It does so in a very specific way, and understanding this can help your positive affirmations become more effective and powerful.
Your brain is a complex and complicated network of information that is always sending and receiving thoughts and instructions at lightning speed.
Every simple action you take is really a set of complicated communications between cells called neurons.
Because of the amount of information your brain has to process every single second, it takes everything you think and say in a very literal way. When you understand how this literal communication works, you begin to see how this affects your emotions, behaviors and even physical well being.
The brain doesn’t communicate in future or past-tense.
Everything that happens is happening in the moment for your brain.
When you think a thought, your brain processes the information literally and prepares you for the action that should immediately follow the thought.
For example, if you think to yourself, “I’m going to have a great time on my date this weekend,” your brain essentially hears “good date” and starts firing off all the connections to make your date amazing.
The problem is, it starts firing off those connections in the moment.
You may get a boost of confidence and even start sending off some feel-good pheromones, but it will be in that moment, right then and there.
This effect is highlighted when you start to fear something that might happen in the future.
Have you ever thought about why you can have such a strong physical reaction to things you know are fake?
Take a scary movie for instance.
Your heart may pound and you might even sweat and feel dizzy.
This happens because your brain can’t tell the difference between what you’re experiencing right now and what you’re imagining you might experience in the future.
Your brain reacts to your thoughts in a very literal way, in the present moment, and prepares you for the perceived danger.
This is why it’s really important that your positive affirmations are always in the present tense.
“I will do great in my job interview,” tells your brain to set you up for success now, but not in the future.
“I am a great interviewer. I am a great employee,” strengthens the neural connections that make you feel confident, determined and prepared for your interview.
Have you ever had an experience in which you’re overcome with emotion? So, you tell yourself, “don’t cry,” or, “don’t get angry,” only to find you become more upset?
There are actually two things happening in the brain that make phrases like “don’t cry” increase your negative emotions.
First, when you tell yourself “don’t cry,” you are giving your brain two different commands. The first command is don’t and the second is cry.
You can process the two words together and understand their meaning, but your brain hears the word “cry” and begins to activate the neural connections for that command.
In the end, you’re essentially telling yourself to cry, over and over again.
Second, a simple command like “cry” takes one small process for your brain to interpret.
It’s straightforward and simple.
A command like “don’t cry” takes further interpretation.
While your brain is busy firing off the processes to follow the command “cry,” it’s also going through a multi-step process of following the “don’t” command and then negating the entire command of, “don’t cry.”
Unfortunately, after all that work, you haven’t given your brain an action to take instead of crying.
It searches for something else to do, but you haven’t told it what to do.
So, the next time you’re in a situation where you want to experience the opposite emotion, think of that opposite emotion and command yourself to do that instead.
Instead of, “don’t cry,” try, “I am calm,” and see what happens!
With all this talk of the strict rules and patterns of your brain, you may start to feel a little annoyed with how literal your brain can be.
Though it seems like an annoyance, these systems and processes are actually in place to help you better achieve your goals.
The world is full of sensory information that, frankly, is of no use to you. If you had to consciously and actively process every piece of information that comes toward you, and then try to make a decision and take an action, you’d be completely overwhelmed.
Your brain has an autopilot function that filters information and guides your actions so you don’t have to.
It’s actually an incredibly helpful process.
If you’re hungry, you don’t have to think about every sound, smell and sight in your environment and think about whether it’s food or not.
Instead, your brain senses the hunger and filters out the junk. In turn, potential food sources stand out to you.
When you drive down a busy street, you probably don’t notice every single store and business, but when you’re hungry, you probably notice most of the restaurants.
That’s the system at work.
Because your brain is constantly looking for clues to filter your environment and guide your actions, it will pick up on any available influence.
This could mean all the subconscious fears and doubts you haven’t dealt with, or even messages embedded in your environment.
Luckily, you have a lot of control in this process.
Your brain is eager to set you up for success – all you have to do is instruct it.
This is why positive affirmations are so powerful.
Your brain is always looking for a command, and if you can clearly give it one – in the language it speaks – it will activate everything you need to make your wildest dreams come true.
To understand how positive affirmations work and why they’re an excellent tool for creating the life you want to live, it’s important to understand why repetition is so important.
As you start using positive affirmations, you may feel like repeating them over and over again is a waste of time.
If the brain responds to positive, present tense statements, then why is it necessary to repeat them several times every single day?
Your brain is a creature of habit.
The processes inside your brain are set up to help you succeed.
To run efficiently, your brain strengthens its connections every time you think, feel and do.
This helps you perform tasks with less energy and more focus.
Think about driving a car or riding a bike.
It can be awkward at first, when you’re learning, but after you figure it out, it comes naturally.
This is because your brain strengthens those connections every time you repeat the action and thoughts.
Anything you want can come that naturally to you through the use of repeated positive affirmations.
Sometimes positive affirmations can feel like a lie.
If you’re not happy with your weight, repeating the phrase, “I love my body,” and, “I maintain the perfect weight,” may feel like an outright falsehood.
For many people, this is where affirmations take a wrong turn.
It seems unnatural to repeat something that is completely untrue.
Because of this, you may be tempted to change your affirmation into a more comfortable phrase like, “I can lose weight,” or, “I can keep up with my diet.”
These affirmations won’t be effective for all the reasons we discussed above, but there’s also something else to be said for the discomfort of repeating a false phrase.
We don’t like tension.
Most of our life is spent avoiding, preventing and fixing discomfort.
So, it’s no wonder that people use ineffective affirmations, because effective affirmations are often uncomfortable.
Yet, it is exactly this discomfort that makes them work so well.
When you come across an affirmation that makes you squirm in discomfort, it’s a good sign that it’s probably exactly the affirmation you need to repeat.
If you feel uncomfortable about lying to yourself, you’ll want to fix it.
You’ll either change the affirmation to make it comfortable, or you’ll change your lifestyle and habits to make the affirmation true.
The latter action is the response that will completely transform your life for the better!
You can use positive affirmations to accomplish anything imaginable.
Most people use positive affirmations to shift their attitudes about themselves.
Confidence and self-esteem are certainly the number one reasons people use positive affirmations, but you don’t have to limit yourself to these uses.
With positive affirmations, you can:
By training your brain to get used to a thought, emotion or behavior, you set yourself up for success.
This success can come from any part of your life.
Though there are excellent resources that list positive affirmations, including the list featured at the end of this article, you may way to create affirmations that are specific to your situation.
Whatever it is you’re looking to achieve, attract or manifest, be sure to use the language of the brain that we spoke about earlier.
1) Make sure your affirmation only contains positive words. If your affirmation contains “don’t,” “can’t” or “won’t,” re-frame the affirmation to confirm what you’re trying to achieve.
2) Make sure your affirmation is in the present tense, even if it’s untrue. The discomfort you feel will motivate you to change.
Even if you’re not rich, repeating, “I’m wealthy. I have plenty of money,” is a great affirmation to propel you toward financial success.
3) Be relevant. If you’re creating an affirmation for a specific situation, think about the things you want to achieve.
If you want to give a great job interview, think about what that entails. Does giving a good job interview mean you’re confident, experienced, likable and successful?
Create affirmations using those qualities in the present tense. Don’t say, “I will give a great interview.” Say, “I am confident, experienced, likable and successful. Everyone notices these qualities.”
4) Repeat your affirmation. There’s no formula for how often or how many times you should repeat a positive affirmation.
Many people set a routine that works for them, like repeating the affirmation 20 times, 3 times a day.
As long as you are focused when you repeat it, and you repeat it frequently, it will be successful.
A good rule of thumb is to repeat the affirmation for at least 5 minutes, 3 times each day.
5) Empower your affirmation with physical touch. You can supercharge your affirmations by tapping on the back of your hand or gently caressing where you feel negative emotion.
For example, if you want to lose weight, think about your unhappiness with your weight.
Where do you feel it at in your body? If you feel a sinking sensation in your stomach, you can gently rub your stomach while you repeat the affirmation.
Tapping any part of your body works the same way.
This creates a muscle memory attached to the feeling and thought.
And whenever you repeat that physical action, your brain and body will remember the positive affirmation.
Before we hop into our list of 80 powerful positive affirmations, here are a few general examples:
Positive affirmations are a very powerful weapon for making your life better.

NOTHING Happens without FEELING.
“The feeling element is the female element”
The mental action alone is really “knowing,” or conscious consciousness; and may be said to be the first • step the mentality takes to experience anything. This “knowing,” unaccompanied by feeling, does not produce a visible effect. This “knowing” is the male element of Mind, the perceptive element. When this perceptive element is used alone, it produces• no visible effect or experience. It is on a par with the mentality that mentally draws plans of a house or invention, but never gets beyond the plan-drawing stage. Some thing more than mere plan-drawing is needed, before an individual mentality will actually set to work to externalize the house or invention. This something more is feeling.If there is no feeling • accompanying the house-planning, the mentality will not exert itself actually to produce the house or invention. It is no different in cases of success or failure, health or sickness, happiness or sorrow.
One could spend a century in planning or thinking health, and still not experience it; simply because, thinking or knowing without feeling, can not produce the experience called health; for health is a state of both knowing and feeling. The feeling element is the female element, or the mother element, which fulfills or brings to fruition or conscious experience, that which the knowing element thinks or perceives.
Knowing is really perception ; and mental perception might be said to be the first step towards conceiving. Conceiving, the second step, may be likened to reasoning, wherein the mental element is actively engaged in formulating or organizing its perception or knowing into a stabilized state, or a feeling of certainty ; and in this way feeling is engendered. Every set conclusion that the mentality arrives at has both the elements of knowing and feeling in combination. When the mentality really arrives at any set conclusion, that conclusion is always accompanied by the sense of certainty, which is really a feeling of certainty. All can prove this to themselves by giving a little thought to their past experiences.
This very perception or knowing, this apprehending or reasoning, and this comprehending or mental conclusion is the triune element, called mind. It is a trinity in unity, that produces only in unity. Not one of this trinity, alone, will produce form or experience; because it is only a single element, and it takes the three to produce objective form. This trinity in unity is the triune element; which was first called the Almighty by Abraham, because he recognized its all-power; and later, by others, called God, having been named this to correspond with its quality, which is all good.
The mistaken sense, that the primal element is a personal God or an enlarged Being, came about through misunderstanding; and through the individual erringly believing himself to be the servant of some unknown power.This, in turn, brought about the error of praying to, and pleading with, the supposititious, personal God for favors; instead of following the teachings of the few, who knew the facts and admonished all.to get understanding.
