Why Do Some Affirmations *Work* - and Others Don't?

By definition, an affirmation is a statement repeated time and
again either verbally or mentally -- or written down. The words
of the affirmation statement - in themselves -when spoken,
thought of, or written without a pictorial (visualized) or
emotional connection -- make a very weak affirmation.
Affirmations, when worded correctly -- and when emotionally
charged - are able to tap into the unlimited creative power of
your subconscious mind, and manifest your desires.
Affirmations are not all created equal. Some are, of course,
better than others. There are power affirmations that have been
proven again and again to work - and I'll reveal some of them in
When you examine the structure of these power affirmations, you,
too, can learn how to create your own powerful affirmations for
your specific purposes.
Consider the following:
"I am what I choose to be."
"All my needs are met instantaneously."
"I love and accept myself exactly as I am."
"_____________ comes to me easily and effortlessly."
(Fill in the blank with what you desire.)
"I am now perfectly healthy in body, mind and spirit."
"I now create my wonderful, ideal life."
What do the above power affirmations have in common?
1)They're stated in the present tense.
An affirmation is more effective when stated in the present
tense. For example; "I now have a wonderful job." Avoid
affirming something in the future tense, e.g. "I am going to
have a wonderful job" or the results will always be waiting
2)They express a positive statement.
Affirmations need to be stated in the most positive terms
possible. Avoid negative statements. Affirm what you do
want, rather than what you don't want. For example:"I am
no longer sick." This is a negative statement. Instead,
affirm: "I am now perfectly healthy in body, mind and
spirit." This statement is much more powerful as it is
positive and reinforces your desired goal and doesn't
confuse your subconscious mind with the mention of the
3)They're short and specific.
Short affirmations are easy to say, and have a far greater
impact at the subconscious level than those which are long
and wordy. Keeping them specific and to the point adds
power as the idea is uncluttered by extraneous elements.
The mechanics that make affirmations powerful are:
The importance of repetition cannot be overemphasized. It
imprints the affirmation into your subconscious mind.
Get involved, be passionate, use your emotions. Think
carefully about the meaning of the words as you repeat them
rather than just writing, typing or saying them.
Practicing affirmations with persistence achieves results
much sooner than practicing them periodically. Successive
sessions will have a compounding effect.
You don't necessarily have to believe your affirmation
initially, in order for it to work. Belief will grow with
your forthcoming successes.What you do need is the ability
to feel what it would be like when the desire you're
affirming is fulfilled, or your need met. Every time that
you have a need -- and that need is met -- a certain
"feeling" is produced in you.You need to evoke that same
feeling when you state your affirmation. In other words,
you need to feel with every fiber of your being that what
you desire has already happened. Without this feeling, your
affirmation is powerless.
- Impress Yourself
Personalize your affirmations.They must resonate with
you -- feel right for you. The stronger your connection
with the affirmation, the deeper the impression it makes on
your mind, and the sooner you will experience positive
So there you have it - the simple formula for creating
affirmations that work. Based on the above, you can easily
create your own affirmations to manifest any desire or need
you have in life.
