Do you ever feel your affirmations are not working? You are doing all the right things: meditating, affirmations, visualizations and prayers and yet nothing is changing. You are still struggling with work, your health or money problems. Some days, you may give up and feel that all that positive thinking does not work. Well, I say STOP! It does work and please do not give up. Try these three ways to make your affirmations work.

If we had perfect faith in our hearts and minds, you could initiate change instantly. But, the fact remains that we must cultivate and grow perfect faith, and that may take some time. You are dealing with habits, and negative thoughts that have been with you probably your entire life and that type of change takes time.

What I can tell you, is that it is worth the time and effort you are putting in to change your life. God wants us to have beautiful lives filled with love, peace, and abundance. Through our life experiences, we have learned to expect less than that. But, it is never too late to change.

Sometimes before everything goes right, everything may seem to go all wrong. This is when you need to stand firm and continue your affirmations. The change you want can be right around the corner. Even when everything seems wrong, that is movement, and that is an indication that your affirmations are working!

Three Ways:

1. With Feeling – It is not the number of times you repeat the affirmation, but, the feeling that you put into them that matter. Before you start to say them, stop, close your eyes and envision a connection with your I AM presence. Make that connection with Source. Then state your affirmations with feeling, love, and faith.
2. Mirror Work – Look in the mirror and be willing to release old feelings and patterns. Tell yourself that you are eager to change. Then say your affirmations while looking deep into your eyes. It will take several times to feel authentic while doing this technique.
3. Physical Release – Sit in a chair and relax your body starting with your scalp, your face, shoulders, and continue down to your feet. Take some deep breaths and relax. Next, say to yourself the following:
a. I am willing to release and let go.
b. I release all fear.
c. I release all sadness.
d. I trust the process of life.
e. Next, say your affirmations in this relaxed state.

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.
