What Are Affirmations and How Should You Use Them?
Affirmations are short phrases or statements that help put you in a positive mindset so that you can focus on what you are trying to manifest into your life.
Today we have 50 powerful affirmations for you to use in your manifesting ritual, but before we get to those let’s take a look at how you should use affirmations, and some tips for writing out your own.
There are many ways you can use these affirmations to help you get into the right frame of mind, and go through your day with love, confidence, faith, and high vibrations.
Here are some of the best ways:
Write them down in your journal
An easy way to use affirmations every day is to write them down in your journal.
You can write one down each day before you start journaling as your topic of focus for that day, or come up with a few different affirmations that apply to what you are trying to manifest.
You can write the affirmation out just once, or you can use the 55×5 method, where you write out your chosen affirmation 55 times a day for five days.
Say them to yourself throughout the day
If you want to be reminded of your affirmation throughout the day, write it down on a sticky note, and put somewhere you will see it often throughout the day.
This could be your fridge door, bathroom mirror or computer screen.
Or take a photo of it and save it as the unlock screen on your phone.
Every time you see it, read it out loud or to yourself, and really feel what it says.
Do mirror work
An alternative to just saying your affirmation to yourself when you see the note, is actually using it for mirror work.
This is when you look at your reflection in the mirror while saying the affirmation to yourself.
This can be a really powerful law of attraction manifesting ritual.
Use affirmations during visualization
Another great option is during meditation or visualization.
Choose affirmations that help get you into the zone where you are focusing on and feeling your manifestation.
When Should You Use Affirmations?
There is no right or wrong time to use affirmations.
You can use them at any time, choosing ones that fit your mood or will boost your confidence.
But, here are some tips for choosing when to use different types of affirmations.
When your vibration is low
If you have been feeling down, with negative feelings, and like you are losing faith in yourself, you probably have low vibrations.
Affirmations do an amazing job at lifting your spirits and raising your vibrations of energy, which is going to help you manifest what you want much sooner.
When you are lost or stuck
Certain affirmations are ideal for when you are feeling a little lost or stuck, especially ones for abundance or success.
You don’t need to worry about HOW this will happen for you, but just have faith that it will.
When you have low self-confidence
You are an amazing person, and you deserve to be reminded of that.
Use affirmations for self-love and confidence if you ever feel down about yourself.
When you are trying to accomplish a goal
Write out your own affirmations that relate to a specific goal you are trying to achieve.
Say them often, in the mirror or just out loud, or by writing them down in your journal.
When you are manifesting something specific
Another use for the customized affirmations you write yourself is when you are trying to manifest something very specific, like a certain type of car, or traveling to your dream destination.
You will find many other reasons to use certain affirmations, based on your main manifesting focus at any given time.
You can have one affirmation you use, or a selection of them for different areas of your life that you want improved.
How to Write Your Own Affirmations
While there are an abundance of amazing affirmations out there, it also helps to learn how to write your own.
You can take one you find and tweak it to best fit your situation, or write one from scratch.
You might struggle a little at first, but stick with it because you’ll notice that after the first few, writing them becomes effortless.
Writing your own affirmations allows you to customize them to fit your life, your goals, and what you are trying to manifest.
Here are some important tips to keep in mind when you write out your own affirmations:
Keep it Positive
The number one rule to writing an affirmation, especially when you are trying to manifest good things into your life, is to keep it positive.
Don’t use any negative words in your affirmations.
For example, if you want to lose weight, you don’t mention that you are trying to LOSE weight or struggling with it.
That makes it appear like you are trying to attract lack.
Instead, switch it around, and talk about how you love your body and are at your ideal weight.
Don’t forget that visualizing yourself or your life as you want it to be, as if it has already happened, is how the law of attraction works best.
Write it in Present Tense
And this is why you want your affirmations to be written in present tense, as if they already exist or have already happened.
Even though you might be trying to work on a goal, you don’t write it as if you want it to come true, but like it already has.
With the law of attraction, you attract what you focus on.
You don’t want to focus on your lack, but your abundance.
So, if you want to attract wealth, you write an affirmation about how you are already wealthy or like you attract wealth and abundance.
Are you lacking confidence?
Your affirmation should be about how you ARE confident, now how you WANT TO BE confident.
Keep it Short and Succinct
Remember that your affirmation should be short and to the point.
You don’t want to use any unnecessary words or write out long winded sentences.
An affirmation is never longer than one sentence (aside from a few exceptions), and is usually a shortened sentence.
You want to be able to keep it in your mind without having to read it every time, which is why keeping it brief is the best way to write it out.
Write down any affirmation that comes to you first, using the above rules of writing it in present tense and keeping it positive.
Read it to yourself once, then read it out loud.
Now close your eyes, and say it again.
Were you able to do it without looking?
If not, you might need to shorten it or change some of the words you used.
Affirmations are really powerful, even if they seem silly at the time.
The more you tell yourself you are amazing, confident, attract abundance, have an open heart, and have all these blessings in your life, the more your subconscious begins to feel it.
And the more your subconscious feels it the more you can actually attract those things into your life with the law of attraction.
