As a follow up on my last post, Positive Tapping – Change Your Life Using EFT And Affirmations. I wanted to share some additional information on using affirmations and also create a list of affirmations for you to use until you create your own.

You can use for these with tapping for personal growth, for emotional health and wellness, abundance, and for self love. Using Affirmations for emotional wellness can create a path to personal transformation, a beginning step in learning to believe in yourself and your worth.

Why Affirmations?

Starting with the belief that our thoughts shape our reality, affirmations are positive statements that, when repeated consistently and with feeling, can create a profound impact on our mindset and overall well-being. The idea that energy flows where our thoughts go, suggests that saying affirmations with feeling, while using tapping, gives you the energy boost to supercharge your affirmations, raise your vibration, and just feel more positive. In world of self-improvement affirmations have long been used as a powerful tool to foster positive thinking, boost self-esteem, and pave the way for personal growth.

Before looking at some of the benefits of using affirmations it’s necessary to understand that there is some logic behind using them. Neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to reorganize and adapt by forming new neural connections, plays a pivotal role in this process. When you repeat affirmations, you stimulate the brain to create new pathways, reinforcing positive beliefs and altering negative thought patterns. This not only enhances your outlook on life but also influences your behavior and decision-making.

One additional reason for using affirmations is the reticular activating system (RAS). What is the RAS, you ask? The RAS is a bundle of nerves at the base of the brain stem that acts as a filter for the millions of pieces of data that our brain is processing each second of the day. It only allows what is important and of interest to be available in our awareness. Honestly there is more to it than that but for the sake of affirmations, the point is, when we use positive affirmations, especially around things that we want, we are more aware of them, aware of opportunities to acquire them, we will see things we might not have seen before.

Benefits of Using Affirmations

So now you know why affirmations can be helpful, here is a list of benefits from adding affirmations into your daily practice.

  1. Positive Mindset and Stress Reduction:
    Affirmations act as a mental reset button, redirecting your focus from negative thoughts to positive ones. By consistently reinforcing optimistic beliefs, you cultivate a more positive mindset, reducing stress and anxiety levels. This shift in perspective enables you to approach challenges with resilience and a problem-solving attitude.
  2. Enhanced Self-Esteem and Confidence:
    Regular affirmation practice fosters a sense of self-worth and confidence. Affirmations help break the cycle of self-doubt and criticism, empowering you to recognize and celebrate your strengths. As you internalize positive beliefs about yourself, your self-esteem naturally rises, leading to increased confidence in various aspects of your life.
  3. Improved Goal Achievement:
    Affirmations serve as a powerful tool to align your thoughts with your goals. By visualizing success and reinforcing a positive attitude, you create a conducive mental environment for goal achievement. This positive mindset enhances motivation and determination, making it more likely for you to overcome obstacles on your path to success.
  4. Increased Resilience in the Face of Challenges:
    Life is full of challenges, but affirmations equip you with the mental fortitude to face them head-on. By cultivating a resilient mindset, you’re better prepared to navigate setbacks and bounce back from adversity. Affirmations provide a steady anchor during challenging times, helping you maintain focus on your strengths and capabilities.

Creating Your Own Effective Affirmations

Crafting affirmations that resonate with you is a personalized process. Here are some tips to create effective affirmations tailored to your goals:

  1. Be Specific and Positive:
    State your affirmations in positive and specific terms. Instead of saying, “I will not fail,” rephrase it as, “I am confident and capable of overcoming challenges.”
  2. Use Present Tense:
    Frame your affirmations in the present tense to reinforce the idea that your desired reality is already unfolding. For example, say, “I am achieving my goals,” instead of “I will achieve my goals.”
  3. Make Them Personal:
    Tailor your affirmations to your unique aspirations and values. Align them with your personal growth journey, whether it’s related to career, relationships, self-worth, or self-discovery.
  4. Make Them Believable:
    It is fine to stretch your comfort zone and dream big but it still has to be something that your brain can grasp. If you are doing affirmations on wealth for example, an affirmation such as “I easily earn $200,000 a week doing work I love”, may not be believable if you are currently making minimum wage. However, “I easily earn $200,000 a year” might be.
  5. Consistency is key: Set aside dedicated time each day to repeat your affirmations. Repetition strengthens the neural pathways associated with positive beliefs, making them more ingrained in your mindset.

Wrapping Things Up

Incorporating affirmations into your daily routine can be a transformative step toward creating a positive mindset and achieving personal growth. As you harness the power of positive thinking, the benefits extend beyond mere words; they start to shape your reality and empower you to become the best version of yourself. Embrace the practice of affirmations, adding them into your tapping sequence, and embark on a journey towards emotional wellness and a more fulfilling and optimistic life.
