The power of affirmations

  A great deal of people use affirmations or have at least heard about them. Some people find they are outstanding , other people only seem to get average success . What makes affirmations work – or could an important question be ‘do affirmations really work?’.

it’s easy to dismiss a thing if it doesn’t work at first, but sometimes   something that really work might take a little time to practice.

Affirmations will be really effective, as long as you follow some of the rules for designing and using them.

What is an affirmation?

An affirmation is saying   something like ‘I am confident’ again and again to yourself.

it’s a little like fashioning a suggestion to yourself. Effective suggestions work by absolutely being able to accept them, so if you totally don’t believe it, they won’t work as powerfully .

Another thing that’s important is to say the affirmation in a way that sounds like you believe it. If you say ‘I feel confident’ in a weak and feeble voice, it won’t be that effective. If your big picture is to build your resourcefulness, say it as if you believe it (just pretend you do if you don’t! – It may make a big difference!).

Using suggestions might take some weeks of consistent use preceeding they become effective. However with practice they could absolutely become powerful . You might even have a massive influence on your physiology . I used to get nose bleeds that would last for ages , however now I could just suggest ‘the bleeding is ceasing ’ and a nose bleed may stop within moments . This will take much of practice, but it’s worth the practice to get awesome results.

So here are some principles to follow to create powerful affirmations to help you gain your big picture:

1 Think your outcome carefully

2  Create your affirmation – make sure you state it positively – what you long for, and not what you don’t long for. it is basic to know what we don’t want like ‘I don’t desire to be anxious’ but when you say this, you must focus on the thing you don’t   wish .

3  State it positively , for example ‘I feel calm and confident’

4  Stand in a physiology that matches the affirmation – if it is about becoming confident you can find it helpful to stand in a way as if you are confident.

5  Say the affirmation out loud in a way that corresponds to the affirmation. How would you repeat it if you completely believed it? This can truly make a difference. Repeat it 10 – 20 times.

You may repeat this many times throughout the day – keep doing it for a few weeks

The more you repeat it the more effective it may be


For affirmations to become truly effective, you genuinely want to build upon your ability to tell with your subconscious mind.

A absolutely outstanding way to develop your unaware communication is to learn NLP or hypnosis. I regularly see clients for hypnotherapy in London, and they could achieve amazing results when they develop their unconscious communication. NLP is a very powerful tool for change.
