Why Positive Affirmations Work

Our minds are constantly filled with chatter. Most of the time we are not even aware of our thoughts. They go on and on in an endless stream. Usually, our thoughts are not positive and uplifting. They dwell in the future or the past. When I speak of the mind and thoughts, I am referring to the conscious mind, our ego. Or should I say ego with a capital E. Why positive affirmations work? They help us control our thoughts instead of allowing our thoughts to control us.

Have you ever listened to a song on the radio while driving and hours later you are still singing the words in your head? It may not even be a song you particularly like. But, that is how our conscious minds work. If we are not aware of our thoughts, anything can be going on.

The reason we want to be aware of our thoughts is that they are being programmed into our subconscious mind. Our subconscious mind has no ego and is very obedient. It will bring about on the physical plane what we tell it. That is great news if we are careful what we tell it.

That is why positive affirmations work and are important. Instead of thinking about failure, fear, or lack, positive affirmations help us tell the subconscious mind what we want in our life. You might think this is too good to be true. It isn’t. This is a Universal Law that is simple but, difficult to be consistent with daily.

What are Affirmations?
Affirmations are positive statements that are written in the present tense. Below are some examples.
All is well in my world.
I am healthy.
I am creating my happiness.
I am lovable.
I believe in myself.

By becoming aware of our thoughts and taking control of them, we can and will bring about positive change in our lives.

Emile Coue Method for Affirmations

“When you believe yourself to be master of your thoughts, you become so.”

 -Emile Coue´

Affirmations are statements that help us practice positive thinking. Your mind cannot have two thoughts at the same time. You may have thoughts that follow one another, but there is only one thought at a time. Affirmations help us replace any negative or undesirable thoughts with a thought that will empower us. Affirmations can help us become strong, happy and whole. There are all types of affirmations: for love, prosperity, good health, happiness, self-love, the list can go on and on. The Emile Couse method for affirmations was revolutionary for its time.

An interesting point about affirmations is that they have been used for a long time. In 1922, Emile Coue´ published a book titled, “Self Mastery through Conscious Autosuggestion.” He was a French psychologist who developed a method for attaining health, success, and happiness through the use of autosuggestion. He did 20 years of scientific research and experiments with thousands of people to develop his method.

This is the Emile Coue´ method:
1. Sit in a relaxed position with eyes closed.
2. Repeat in a monotonous tone, the magic words:
“EVERY DAY, IN EVERY WAY, I AM GETTING BETTER AND BETTER”
3. Repeat these magic words 20 times in the morning and 20 times in the evening.
4. Do not think about your illness or your troubles while repeating these words.
5. Your desire must have absolute faith and confidence.

That is it! This is simple to do. You do not need any special props or need to be in any particular place. What you do need is confidence in yourself and to believe firmly that all will be well.

Try it for a month. See if there are some positive changes in your life.
