Positive Affirmations: Why and How to Use Them

A positive affirmation is a word or saying that rewires your brain to remain positive. The word “affirmation” comes from the latin word “affirmare” which translates to “to strengthen”. Positive affirmations are simply a reminder throughout the day to keep your mind focused and positive, thus creating the life of your dreams.How does this work, you ask? Lets talk about one of my favorite topics, the law of attraction. I remember the first time I was introduced to this concept, at about 16 when one of my best friends had me watch The Secret (which I believe is on Netflix). I thought the concept was cool but I didn’t quite understand it. A few years later I read the book. Even if you have watched The Secret 100 times, I highly recommend reading the book. I made it simple to find on amazon. In this book, you will learn all about the law of attraction and why it is so crucial to success and happiness in all aspects of life. Basically, the law of attraction is the ability to be able to manifest whatever you desire in life based on your thoughts and vibrations.Have you ever heard of the saying “You are what you think”? Well, it is true that your life is determined by your thoughts. Thought is the beginning stages of forming words, then actions. This is why it is so incredibly important to replace negative thoughts with positive thoughts, and speak positive words rather than negative words. This takes us back to the saying “you are what you think”. Seems crazy, right? Tell that to the number of millionaires that follow these practices faithfully. It all starts with being aware and informed about the law of attraction and positive affirmations, so you can take the steps to use them to change your life!

The law of attraction can be implemented and practiced in a number of ways. Positive affirmations are only a small part of the framework needed to use the law of attraction. Other tools must be used as well, such as visualization. It is important to know exactly what you want so you can visualize it, thus raising your vibration and manifesting it into the universe to become reality.

Whether you know it or not, every minute of every day we are putting our thoughts and emotions out into the universe. The law of attraction says that we basically act as human magnets, getting back even more of what we put out.

When we stress about money and call ourselves “broke”, only more financial crisis’ happen. That is because of the negative thoughts, emotions, and words that are being put out into the universe. People who rewire their brains to think positively and replace negative words with positive ones will very quickly see a huge response in the universe. By radiating this positivity, the universe throws even more positivity back at you. This can lead to life changing opportunities, friendships, understandings, and so many other possibilities.

Repeating affirmations throughout the day is an easy and incredibly effective way to remain positive and rewire your brain to exclude negativity. It is proven that this method increases hormones that “rewire” your brain to think positively!

If these simple reminders have the power to change our lives, why are we not using them regularly? Post them around your home and even your office at work. I was a server and bartender for many years, and I always kept affirmations written all over my server book. If I had an office job, I would post them on stickies or little pictures on my desk.

This is actually how I got into blogging. Long story short, through affirmations and the law of attraction, I met the right people to get me on the path that I didn’t even know I always wanted to be on. The path to location, time, and money freedom. Maybe that is why you are on this website right now.
