The Best Way To Use Positive Affirmations

Learn when to use affirmations and how to avoid common problems.

The word affirmation is from the Latin word “affirmare”.   This means “to make steady, or strengthen”.  So, if nothing else, affirmations make you more focused and resilient.
Positive affirmations are widely recognized as phrases that can help direct our attitude and thought life. However, most teachers and experts use them as complementary elements in part of a larger life-changing plan I feel Mantras and Sutras are more powerful for promoting larger and more immediate effects.  Other forms of moving and seated meditation can also result in better outcomes.
Affirmations are just one tool you’ll find to assist in your journey of spiritual exploration.  The more tools you have in your toolbox, the better.

How to Use Affirmations

As you shift, it should mirror your transformation in your world. But many people experience a lag in the manifestation from the inner world to the outer world. Do not be discouraged if your perception of the otter world is not immediate. Continue to chant your mantra for breaking down barriers throughout the day. Invite the transformation, do not demand it. — Guru Tua

Universe Failsafe

Here’s something to think about.  If affirmations work, then it means you need to be careful with the things you think and words you say. If positive words have positive results, then the same for negative words.

In practical terms, our thoughts lead to the words we speak.  When we say things they are more likely to become actions.  Thus, the emphasis on positive affirmations rather than negative words.

Thankfully, the universe has a failsafe method in operation.  People who are asleep or less awake exhibit less control over their thoughts, speech, and actions.  The universe is in tune with this level of vibration.

Thus, people with less control over their minds possess less spiritual power.  Some refer to this as Chi. This keeps them from doing too much damage.  Still, unhealthy, angry, or greedy people do enough damage in the physical realm as it is.

Best Practices

Let’s talk about some best practices before we get to the list.  Instead of saying “I can’t” do this or that, say “I currently struggle with.”  This is an honest statement that does not close the door on the possibilities.

Also, don’t say “I can” when you clearly can not do it.  This isn’t being honest either. Instead, say, “How could I do this or that?”  This is one way to encourage the universe to help you make the changes you want.

So, to be honest, affirmations alone may not change your life dramatically.   However, they can be an important element in your overall plan to redirect your life.  In the short term, they help you gain emotional equilibrium.  They bolster your confidence, and that may be enough to make a tremendous difference.  The following list is just examples.  So combine them, change them, make them yours.
