What’s my #1 go-to, quick mindset & manifestation tool?? Easy. Affirmations. I’ve spent years looking into tricks and tips for manifestation and how to cultivate a good mindset– and this stuff is simple yet fierce in boosting our subconscious/conscious minds!!
Its how I’ve helped myself re-frame a lot of shitty scenarios, and reset my confidence in my goals– bc its my life, its my party, and, b*tch, I am fabulous, abundant and free — & I will remind myself of that often.
The way in which we speak to ourselves, about ourselves, and even about others, can be the catalyst for a lot in our life. Not only our inner dialogue, that self-talk aspect, but our intentional language, statements and perspective.
Affirmations are simply statements of intent about yourself, our life, our reality, that breed positive result based through repetition and conviction.
In other words, statements that will create self-fufilling prophecy to the person saying them. The origin comes from the Latin word, meaning “to strengthen”. These statements that you can make for yourself are a tool in which you can strengthen your, confidence, attitude, goals, and manifestations.
Affirmations are a tool to aid in you manifestations, goals, and overall mindset journey. They are recommended in psychology fields like cognitive behavioral therapy, among others*. You can also find them supported in religion and spirituality contexts like Christianity and Buddhism, that emphasize positive declarations of pure intent, and faith that they are meant for you.
Affirmations are no joke, and honestly if saying simple reminders to yourself can help you achieve your dreams…wouldn’t you give it a go?
There are so many resources and successful people that will attest to this positive conversation-with-the-universe technique, like Jim Carrey, J-Lo, Oprah.. How insane!? These public figures and celebrities attribute much of their success to the use of these simple, powerful statements.
Dr. Joe Dispenza, a neuroscientist swears by the science behind the connection and influence of your thoughts, words, and emotions on the reflection in your reality. He speaks on how neuroplasticity – amount the brain can change – of the brain allows for inward change throughout adulthood and, in turn, change in our outward experiences + perception of experiences.
I’ll dive more into his teaching in my upcoming review of his book: Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself.
These sentences and proclamations are very effective , especially when using them in the “I am…” structure, but as long as there is that matter of fact feeling — honey you’re golden!!
Its true– there are moments when you may feel as if these statements are farther off than others. But that’s where the repetition is key!!
Pfshhhhh! Just some measly statements? No prob. Its very interesting to see how you can forget or overlook these quick lil nuggets of truth throughout your day or week! I challenge you to write some of your own in your phone or on paper, andtake note of your mood, mess and magic of the week!
