What are Positive Affirmations?

Ever since the modern era saw the rise of Rhonda Byrne's Book "The Secret", positive affirmations started gaining limelight along with guided meditations across the globe. Here's Ana Sorina's perspective on positive affirmations. Read ON! 

Positive affirmations have been around since the world, but the new ones have been known to us for a long time since social media has gained more power and has managed to happily transmit and disseminate information - to everyone who wants to embrace it.

You have probably made contact with positive affirmations - either on Facebook, or meeting certain people or watching TV.

What are positive affirmations?

Magical words, meaningless texts, and some real power, as many rush to label, or tools that help us work simply with the brain's plasticity - and build the life we want.

Answer yourself, this is a statement in itself.

However, there is scientific evidence that clearly supports the ability of positive words to significantly improve your mind and body. Neuroplasticity is, after all, medicine, not a myth.

In short, positive affirmations are statements that you repeatedly tell yourself to change the patterns in which you think and to get what you want. Through them - you have the power to re-educate your brain.

How are positive affirmations used?

If you have chosen the statements that you think fit with what you currently want, then it is important to know the three magic rules that you must keep in mind when you say:

1. They are always told in the present tense as if you had already achieved what you wanted. For example, I am healthy - and not "I will be healthy", or "I have - and not" I will have ".

2. Positive affirmations are always made up of positive words and focused on what you want, not what you don't want. You will not use expressions like "I am not sick ... but" I am healthy ".

Avoid building positive affirmations that contain words such as 'I can never'. The brain does not know the negation, therefore it will eliminate it and it will work only with "I am sick" from the phrase I am not sick. Permanently, without exception, focus on what you want, not what you don't want. Thus, "I no longer want to be sad" becomes "I am happy.

3. Put faith and emotion in them. At first, it's true, you will tell them mechanically. It's natural, it's something new to you. But over time ... they will have to gain emotion, feeling, and credit. Trust them and they will all make sense. You have to believe in what you say, so implicitly in what you want.

Positive affirmations

I invite you to discover some positive affirmations to introduce into your life - and to use daily: for a better state of mind.

I love myself and accept myself as I am

I learn from my mistakes

I am always healthy

I trust in myself and my higher spiritual Self

I'm happy

I am loved and appreciated

I radiate joy and health

I'm happy here and now

I can achieve what I want

My life is extraordinary

I can make the changes I want

I can do everything I need

I detach myself from everything negative in my life

I have the power to make the changes I want

I apologize and thank you for what I have

I trust myself

I am grateful for what I have

Today is the most important day of my life

These are - probably - the most common statements. You can adapt them according to your needs and, of course, you can write your own, so you can put your most sincere wishes into them. I gave you only landmarks.

What you should know

Very important: positive affirmations must be as short and clear as possible. You can start with longer affirmations, but as you experiment and feel that you understand better what is an appositive, try to shorten them. Positive affirmations are prayers in the meaning of all, and the prayer, to cross the sky, must be short and clear, it is said.

If you are a beginner, listening to positive affirmations while working or resting can be a good start. It is information that you listen repeatedly and that is absorbed in the subconscious.

Here are some audio statements - which I think will help you. Listen to them in the morning - and in the evening, before bedtime
