Affirmations: The Foundation to a Life of Harmony

Affirmations: The Foundation to a Life of Harmony
April 9, 2013 Linda Ballesteros



A  statement asserting the existence or truth of something.

An autosuggestion in which a statement of a desirable intention is repeated in order to implant  it in the mind.

Affirmations are statements that saturate your mind and create the world you live in.

How does that work?

It starts with self-talk.

You talk to yourself all day.  So you could say that you are saying affirmations to yourself everyday in the form of self talk.

A belief has to be repeated 180 times to be programmed.

We talk to ourselves @ 200 words per minute.

Does your internal dialog support you?

If I could get in your head as you walked around …what would I hear you say when you talk to yourself.

Would I hear criticism of yourself or finding fault in others.

When you come to a place where you see obstacles do you say you can’t do it

Maybe you don’t say the words however there is a feeling that tells you that you can’t do it.

What do you say when someone asks “How are you?”

Well my head  hurts.”

“My back is killing me”.

“I am sick and tired of working here.”

Think of the things you tell yourself…

“I  can’t afford that.”

“I’m not smart enough to get that job.”

“That  was a stupid thing to do.”

These are reinforcing statements that impress your subconscious, and become a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Consider your daily thoughts as a personal slideshow that repeats itself.  The images on the slides represent your deepest beliefs.  These images form your self-image which is who you believe you are and where you believe you are going.

Studies show the images held in your mind have a direct effect on what happens.

These images tell the Universe/God/Higher Source…whatever you call your higher power, what to bring into your life to fulfill or manifest your wish.

What do the images in your slideshow look like.

Do you really want you life to look like that?

What we want to do is eliminate old negative thought patterns and replace them with positive thoughts that will allow you to be the BEST possible you.

Remember what you picture in your mind and believe with emotion will happen in your life.

This is known as the Law of Attraction which works hand in hand with affirmations.

Have you heard the statement – Thoughts become things?

If affirmations are new to you and your BELIEF muscle is weak, I would suggest that you be selective with who you share your affirmations.  Others may doubt your ability to create your dreams and if you are not strong in the belief of the process, it could impact you negatively.

Build up your belief muscle before you share the images on your slide show with others.

Now if you have family and friends to support you I would certainly encourage you to keep them close because having the positive energy of loved ones can help you make a shift to purge old negative beliefs to embrace new positive ones.

If you do not see immediate results, continue to persist to implant these new beliefs and before long you will notice changes.

When you begin to see results, the energy will become more powerful and know there is much more to come.

Do a happy dance!

I hope you have seen why I say that affirmations are the foundation to a life of harmony.  If your self-talk isn’t supporting you and your visions you will not experience the life you were designed to live.

Get started now by identifying and personalizing an affirmation to use daily that will attract that which is rightfully yours.
