Why Do Some Affirmations Work -
and Others Don't?
By definition,an affirmation is a statement repeated time and
again either verbally or mentally-or written down. The words of the
affirmation statement - in themselves -when spoken, thought of, or
written *without* a pictorial (visualized) or emotional connection-
make a very weak affirmation.
Affirmations, when worded correctly -- and when emotionally
charged - are able to tap into the unlimited creative power of your
subconscious mind, and manifest your desires.
Affirmations are not all created equal. Some are, of course,
better than others.
When you examine the structure of these power affirmations,
you,too, can learn how to create your own powerful affirmations for
your specific purposes.
"I am what I choose to be."
"All my needs are met instantaneously."
"I love and accept myself exactly as I am."
"_____________ comes to me easily and effortlessly." (Fill in
the blank with what you desire.)
"I am now perfectly healthy in body, mind and spirit."
"I now create my wonderful, ideal life."
What do the above power affirmations have in common?
1) They're stated in the present tense.
An affirmation is more effective when stated in the present
tense. For example;"I now have a wonderful job." Avoid affirming
something in the future tense, e.g."I am going to have a wonderful
job" or the results will always be waiting to happen.
2) They express a positive statement.
Affirmations need to be stated in the most positive terms
possible. Avoid negative statements. Affirm what you do want,
rather than what you don't want. For example:"I am no longer sick."
This is a negative statement. Instead, affirm: :”I am now perfectly
healthy in body, mind and spirit." This statement is much more
powerful as it is positive and reinforces your desired goal and
doesn't confuse your subconscious mind with the mention of the
3) They're short and specific.
Short affirmations have a far greater impact at the subconscious
level than those which are long and wordy. Keeping them specific
and to the point adds power as the idea is uncluttered by
extraneous elements. The mechanics that make affirmations powerful
The importance of repetition cannot be overemphasized. It
imprints the affirmation into your subconscious mind.
Get involved, be passionate, and use your emotions. Think
carefully about the meaning of the words as you repeat them rather
than just writing, typing or saying them.
Practicing affirmations with persistence achieves results much
sooner than practicing them periodically. Successive sessions will
have a compounding effect.
You don't necessarily have to believe your affirmation
initially, in order for it to work. Belief will grow with your
forthcoming successes. What you do need is the ability to *feel*
what it would be like when the desire you're affirming is
fulfilled, or your need met. Every time that you have a need -and
that need is met -a certain "feeling" is produced in you. Simply
evoke that same feeling when you state your affirmation. That is,
you need to feel with every fiber of your being that what you
desire has already happened. Without this feeling, your affirmation
Personalize your affirmations. They must *resonate* with you
feel right for you. The stronger your connection with the
affirmation, the deeper the impression it makes on your mind andt
the sooner you will experience positive results.
So there you have it - the simple formula for creating
affirmations that work. Based on the above, you can easily create
your own affirmations to manifest any desire or need you have in
