Now that we know more about the theories supporting positive affirmations, here are some examples of evidence from empirical studies that suggest that positive self- affirmation practices can be beneficial:
There is MRI evidence suggesting that certain neural pathways are increased when people practice self-affirmation tasks (Cascio et al., 2016). If you want to be super specific, the ventromedial prefrontal cortex—involved in positive valuation and self- related information processing—becomes more active when we consider our values (Falk et al., 2015; Cascio et al., 2016).
You can change your life for the better. You already have powerful tools. These tools are your thoughts and your beliefs, if you want to use this power you must understand the psychology of your thoughts. For example, how do you feel right now? Do you feel good? do you feel bad? What are your current emotions? What is your gut feeling? How often do you listen to your gut feeling?
When you feel angry or stressed, how do you feel? You may feel sad, grumpy, bitter, resentful, angry, fearful, guilt depressed, critical. What would temporarily lose your connection to the flow of good experience that the universe has to wait for you?
Also what kind of thoughts make you feel good? Thoughts of love, appreciation, gratitude, joyful, childhood experience. When you have these kinds of feelings you truly enjoy your present moment and get excited about tomorrow. Another thing you must understand is this is the only moment you ever control your present moment. If you do not choose to feel good in the present, then how can you create future fun moments.
You must be aware of your powerful mind, then you can take total control over your thinking. What you choose to think is what you will get in life. You must remember you can not control someone’s thoughts and nobody can control your thoughts unless you give them permission.
You have to decide to think and train your brain how to use it as a part of your morning ritual to master your emotions and train your brain to accept positivity. I post many videos regarding retraining your mind and letting go of negativity and past thoughts that are holding you back from your optimal performance and life. It might feel strange at first, but if you practice priming regularly, you’ll experience an incredible change in the quality of your thoughts and emotions.
Developing a daily practice that primes you for opportunity, impact and success can mean the difference between living the life of your dreams and settling for what you tolerate. And it all starts with changing your state, which can be done with a few minutes of focus each day.
Examples of using positive affirmations:
|I hate my body||Becomes||I love and appreciate my body|
|I am too fat||Becomes||I honour my body and take good care of it|
|I never have enough money||Becomes||Money flows in an abundant way|
This simple affirmation will work miracles in your life.
If you want to learn more about affirmation, reprogramming your brain for happiness and success, this is an ideal way to work below the surface and remove roadblocks that are holding us back.
