What is an affirmation? The action or process of affirming something. It means to declare, or make a statement. We see people post positive affirmations daily on social media, with the caption "type yes to claim it!" The reality is the same way faith without works is dead, you have to have intent behind your affirmations. Just typing yes, or reposting or liking a picture isn't enough.
When you create an affirmation it's usually for something you desire. More money, peace of mind, clarity, it can be anything. However, in order for it to work, you have to set an intention behind it and you have to raise your mental vibrations (mindset) to match that intent. I talk a lot about mindset because it matters! You have to believe that you deserve anything that you declare. If you're just saying it to say it, then it's dead on arrival as soon as the words leave your mouth. When the Bible talks about having faith the size of a mustard seed, do you realize how small that is? A little change in the way you think about yourself and what you deserve in life can be the key that opens the door to your future.
The key to affirmations that work is first mindset. Before you begin the process of writing or reciting one, take a few moments to settle and quiet your mind. I believe that we should all spend time each day meditating, this is one of the best ways to get in tuned with ourselves and really hear our inner voice.
The second thing is intent. What is your intention behind this affirmation. Does it serve a purpose other than vanity or personal gain. Be specific in your intent. Its easy to say I want more money so I can be happy. Ok, but are you going to bless others or are you going to splurge on designer clothes and jewelry? Are you going to fix your credit, make repairs to your home? Is what you're trying to declare going to closer align you with your purpose or take you further away from it?
So, just remember that you have to be in the right frame of mind for affirmations, set your intentions before you begin, and what and how you say things matter.
