Affirmations – proclaiming that you have the power to bring your goals to fruition.
Repetition – saying something over and over to the point where it is embedded in you.
Sometimes you won’t intentionally memorize an affirmation. If you repeat anything enough, it becomes second nature to think of that quote where it is applicable. Memorizing positive affirmations can help you out of a dark space.
Repeating something powerful to yourself gives you that small boost of confidence – the exact amount you need for the adrenaline to hit the fan, catapult, and send you sky high soaring through the universe. You start walking with your head held high, you gain the confidence you need to fast track your way right to the front door of what you want.
After reading a powerful passage, you envision the miracles that can happen to you, your endorphins are boosted, your faith is restored, so you glide through life with the confidence you need to reach your goal & guess what? You reach it!
Maybe you think it’s all in the head…. you know you can, so you have a sense of calmness… a sense of relief… you release the part of yourself that was holding you back from completing your goal. I personally believe this comes from trust. I trust God to allow me to have opportunities to grow, to heal, overcome. My sense of relief is from knowing that there is someone on my side helping me in every way.
“When you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.”Paulo Coelho
Best Way To Practice Affirmations
- Proclaim beautiful things in your life and trust that God will handle you with care.
- Hand over the reins because you are not, nor should you want to be in control.
- Don’t believe in “the Law of Attraction”. Believe in the power of earnest prayers, the power of prayer offered in faith.
- Take these affirmations to God. Make these affirmations your prayers.
And the prayer offered in faith will make the sick person well; the Lord will raise them up. If they have sinned, they will be forgiven. Elijah was a human being, even as we are. He prayed earnestly that it would not rain, and it did not rain on the land for three and a half years.James 5:15&17
