Affirmations can be very empowering but one small tweak can make them and us unstoppable.
Our subconscious minds do not think in terms of past, present or future. If we affirm that we “want” something, then we get “the wanting” but do we really get the thing that we are wanting.
To move away from "the wanting" affirmations work best in the present tense!
That is why we encourage the herd to replace I WANT affirmations with I AM affirmations.
It is important to remember that we have a choice of words we select for our affirmations. That selection of words can be positive or negative.
Our subconscious mind does not care what we select; it will process the input regardless. So, to start creating a more positive and desirable outcome, we encourage a selection of positive words to help move us in the right direction. For example:
I AM ENOUGH
I AM MUCH STRONGER AND POWERFUL THAN ANY CHALLENGE
I AM STRONG AND BALANCED
I AM COURAGEOUS, AND I STAND UP FOR MYSELF
I AM MINDFUL
I AM POSITIVE ENERGY
Over time and with practice you will find yourself unconsciously playing these positive “I AM…” phrases in your mind. There WILL be times when external circumstances may cause you to doubt yourself. In such times of stress or undesirable situations, find comfort in these affirmations.
Believe that you ARE, and you will BE.
