The Power of WORDS: Dozens of Magical Daily Affirmations That Can Change Your Life
You've heard it all before...
"Whatever you conceive you will receive."
"Where attention goes, Energy flows."
"What you appreciate, appreciates."
"Change your mindset, Change your Life."
They all mean the same!
Basically... Words have power. Words are spells. Words are vibrations. They carry meaning and value. They hold the codes for the energy that gets transmitted into the world and creates the physical outlet for all our manifestations.
If you’re calling something in, but you express doubt when talking about these desires - you are sending mixed signals to the universe.
From a Human Design perspective, our most potent manifestation centers are connected to the Throat Center, further supporting the idea that what we say, especially about ourselves, really MATTERS.
Affirmations are positive self-talk statements that can help you make positive and lasting changes in your life. They are a way that you can use your conscious brain to reprogram your subconscious mind, reframing our thoughts and beliefs to create a new reality filled with abundance and positivity.
These statements are extremely powerful when spoken with intention and conviction because they can shift your frequency - thereby altering negative habits, thought patterns, beliefs and behaviors that are rooted in your conscious and subconscious mind.
When affirmations are used consistently they can literally reprogram your mind into believing the new reality of the repeated statements. From there your internal state starts to shift, and you will find yourself naturally making small changes and adjustments in your daily life which contribute to your greater good.
The Benefits of Affirmations
There are many science-back reasons to add positive self-talk to your daily routine
Re-wire the neural pathways in your brain
Boost your confidence and self-esteem.
Overcome negative self-talk and self-sabotaging behaviors
Lower inflammation and reduce risk of chronic illness
Alter your subconscious mind to access new beliefs.
Help you soothe and heal your traumas.
Motivate you to adopt new habits and release negative ones.
Help you concentrate and stay focused on your goals.
Reprogram your mind by replacing negative thought patterns with positive ones.
Motivate you to continuously take action towards achieving your goals.

Become more resilient in the face of adversity or life's challenges.
The affirmations below have been instrumental in shifting my life towards one of peace, abundance, freedom, opportunity, and synchronicity. Repeat or write these daily, or make up your own, and see how your vibration shifts too!
Remember, what you say can impact your manifestation power. That's why its imperative to choose your words carefully, embodying those with the highest vibration possible.
"I want" or "I need" implies "I lack"
"I wish" or "I hope" implies "I'm not in control, I'm not certain and I'm not confident",
"I can't" means "I won't"
I get to/ I can...
I know that …
I trust that …
I am confident in...
I am certain that...
I am excited that...
Lastly, how you say it matters too. Use your voice! Saying words out loud as you write them carries a higher vibration than writing them silently. When your body truly *believes* the affirmation serious healing can occur.
"Be mindful of your self-talk — it’s a conversation with the Universe."

What other format can Affirmations be in?
To some, affirmations may be even more powerful when they are phrased in the form of a question, rather than a statement.
It is understandable if you experience inner conflict if you don’t believe the affirmative statement you are saying. That's why there could be a better way! In one study it was discovered that phrasing affirmations as a question instead of a statement drastically increased success. The study found that framing the desired outcome as a question presented a more neutral challenge to motivate the person -instead of a requirement that they might resist.
We're accustomed to asking questions when things arent going our way ("why is this happening to me? what i wrong with me?") but instead of complaining we can use questions to create awe and wonder.
How did I get to be so wealthy and successful?
Why do I have the most genuine and fulfilling relationships?
Isn't it remarkable that everything is always working out for me?
How can I possibly be so lucky and content with my life?
Why am I so great at manifesting?
Another approach is to emphasize unconditional self-compassion and radical acceptance, which creates a feeling of safety for your Inner Child. Avoid overlooking or "bypassing" your emotional experience by affirming that your emotions are valid, real and true.
"You're in pain and I'm here to hold you"
Make sure you're not forcing the nervous to accept a new narrative, and instead strive to re-parent the body by offering it new story and the actual experience of being loved. Let the pain transform when it's ready.
Want to create your own high-vibe abundance affirmations?
1. WRITE a list of negative thoughts or beliefs that you think or say about yourself or your life.
Some people may prefer a paper notebook for this, while others choose to do this in their own Google document. I personally find this method helpful because I can access and update/edit and fine-tune my affirmations from my phone from anywhere. I can also easily organize them into categories or by type.
2. REFRAME and rewrite those negative statements as positive affirmations. Avoid using ANY words that are negative in the rephrase (Examples of off-limit words: debt, doubt, worry, fear, etc)
Make sure your new positive affirmations in the present tense: I AM, I HAVE, I FEEL, I LOVE, I KNOW , etc. Even "I can' or "I will" can be less effective because it implies an abstract future. The universe operates in the NOW.
Alternatively, Scripting is a technique used to manifest goals by writing as if your goals have already been attained. Not only do they feel more accessible, but you can also discover new insights.
3. REPEAT your new positive affirmations regularly and consistently (DAILY!) even if you don’t believe the new statements about yourself for lack of evidence.
One of the best ways to do this is to RECORD yourself repeating them and store it on your phone. The benefits?
You can have them whenever, wherever you are.
You can listen to them an unlimited amount of times.
Your subconscious will respond better to your own voice than any other because its resonance and tone is most familiar.
Want to take your audio recording to the next level? Add background music, or set it to play as the background soundtrack of your own guided imagery meditation, "mind movie" or cinematic vision board.
Remember to speak enthusiastically and with excitement.
4. FEEL it all! The mind is electric and broadcasts the words and associated thoughts and vibrational frequencies out into the world while your heart is magnetic and draws it to you. Allow the words to resonate and penetrate your being, elevating your cells in and out.
Saying affirmations with elevated emotion is important for several reasons:
Emotion Amplifies Intention: Emotions are powerful energy drivers that can amplify the intention behind your affirmations. When you infuse your affirmations with positive emotions like joy, gratitude, or enthusiasm, you send a stronger signal to your subconscious mind. This heightened emotional state can make your affirmations more effective in reprogramming your beliefs and thought patterns.
Alignment of Thoughts and Feelings: Affirmations are most effective when your thoughts and feelings are aligned. If you repeat affirmations without emotional engagement, they may remain superficial and not deeply impact your subconscious mind. Elevated emotions create alignment between your conscious and subconscious minds, reinforcing the belief you're trying to instill.
Overcoming Resistance: Your subconscious mind can sometimes resist changes, especially if the new belief contradicts long-held patterns. Elevated emotions help break through this resistance. When you genuinely feel the emotions associated with your affirmations, it becomes more challenging for resistance to persist.
Enhanced Visualization: Emotions can enhance your ability to visualize what you're affirming. When you add emotional depth to your visualizations, your mind can more vividly imagine the desired outcome. This mental imagery strengthens the neural pathways associated with your affirmations.
Attracting Positivity: Positive emotions are attractive forces. When you express gratitude, joy, or love during your affirmation practice, you're aligning yourself with positive energies and vibrations. This alignment can potentially draw positive experiences and opportunities into your life.
Heart-based affirmations help bridge the gap between your conscious and subconscious minds, making it easier to overwrite limiting beliefs with empowering ones. They create a positive feedback loop that reinforces the changes you seek to make in your thought patterns and, consequently, in your life.
Wrapping it Up
We are so much more powerful than we realize. We hold so much potential to shift our vibration. The brain is able to create new neural pathways with repeated thoughts and affirmations over time. It takes at least 21 days to create these pathways so stay consistent and make them a habit.
