Affirmations are positive statements we say in order to manifest something in our lives. When we are feeling like something is not going the way we would like it to – we can say an affirmation to help create what we would like to see. From more minor things to major health issues, people use affirmations to help them achieve their goals every day.
We send our energy out to the Universe/Divine/God when we use affirmations. Affirmations are like short, direct prayers. We say affirmations as if they are already happening. Example: “My life is productive and happy.” Affirmations are very powerful statements that we repeat over and over until we create that change in our lives.
However, I believe we have to really be ready for what we are sending out a request for. Affirmations can be like a wrench in machinery if not used appropriately. Things can get confused and muddled if we are not ready for what we are affirming into our lives.
An example of this: “My life is productive and happy.” Let’s say this person is in an abusive relationship – since we cannot control others, there may have to be a divorce in order for this person to have a productive and happy life. There may have to be great changes. When we are not ready for what we are affirming into existence, it can upset our entire existence and send us off in a direction we had not imagined.
Affirmations can be very helpful and life changing. Please consider the end result. Get a clear picture of what you want. Do not be vague when you are using affirmations. And be ready for what you are affirming.
