Do you believe that your thoughts influence your level of abundance?
By now you have heard me repeat that the research and science supporting the theory that thoughts clearly create our reality. I think of affirmations as mini mantras or, being from silicon valley, we may call these “soundbites”. The word affirmation comes from the Latin affirmare, originally meaning “to make steady, strengthen.”
Positive affirmations work by replacing negative programming with more life-affirming statements. Through repetition, you can actually reprogram your brain to think more positively and optimistically!
According to Dr. Carmen Harra “Affirmations do indeed strengthen us by helping us believe in the potential of an action we desire to manifest. When we verbally affirm our dreams and ambitions, we are instantly empowered with a deep sense of reassurance that our wishful words will become reality. Affirmations are proven methods of self-improvement because of their ability to rewire our brains. Much like exercise, they raise the level of feel-good hormones and push our brains to form new clusters of “positive thought” neurons.
I use these to strengthen my vision of what I am working on. I make them a habit so that if I find myself with any white space- waiting in line at the grocery store or at a red light, I will start repeating my affirmations. One of my favorites is
“Money comes easily and effortlessly to me” (and, after years of repeating these hundreds of times, it is not uncommon for some surprise money to show up within 24 hours.)
I am a believer that being lucky is intentional and I increase my luck by vocalizing it every time something “lucky” happens to me. From a surprise discount to someone asking to buy my house when we were just thinking of moving. Yes, my friends “I am very lucky”.
And of course, my favorite one of all is “Thank you Thank you Thank you.” Even if I am not expressing gratitude for anything in particular, I am affirming that there is so much to be grateful for- which of course attracts more.
