Like most people, I have started many new years with resolutions: eating better, exercising more, meditating longer, stressing less, giving up chocolate, coffee, pasta and everything else that tastes great, etc, etc, etc. And like most people by the end of January my resolutions have gone out the window. In more recent years I have started each New Year with affirmations of my goals for the coming year.
An affirmation is a positive statement designed to counteract a negative limiting belief that you have. It is stated in the present tense and should affirm something that you want to become true. By using an affirmation, you are shifting yourself to do or be something different even though your mind does not accept that change yet.
Affirmations can be simple statements like” I am good enough” or they can be more complex such as ”I am willing to have the universe support me in my desire for a loving relationship”. Whatever goal you choose, work with words that are meaningful to you.
Here are some guidelines for creating affirmations:
-Affirmations should be stated in the present tense as if they are already true.
-They should be stated in the positive. Example: “I am a non smoker” instead of “I don’t
Want to smoke”
-Use words that empower you such as “I am, I will, I can”
– Keep them short and to the point
-Make them simple enough to remember. There is no sense in creating an affirmation
that you cannot remember.
-An affirmation should be said or written daily until the new thought is accepted as truth.
Remember, what you affirm to be true, through the law of attraction, becomes your reality. Someone once said, “What the mind can conceive and believe it can achieve”.
That is the power of an Affirmation.
Have a Happy, Healthy, Prosperous New Year.
