Does Repeating Affirmations Actually Work?

I have now heard a few say affirmations are silly and they don't work. "Your just telling yourself lies". So I wanted to provide some information for those people.

Affirmations do a few positive things for you. One, by telling yourself something positive everyday, it raises your vibration, it makes you FEEL better, which in return will make you do feel good actions throughout the day. Remember your thoughts cause your feelings (vibration) which expresses itself through actions of your body. Your telling yourself positive things, which are positive thoughts that cause positive feelings, expresses positive actions, receive positive results.

It also will allow you to start to change your mindset. Your sub-conscious does not know what is real or not. It doesn't have a choice to accept or reject thoughts that come to it. Your conscious mind is able to accept or reject. So by telling yourself something positive, like I have unlimited wealth. You may not have a lot of money in physical form but if you truly believe that it is coming to you, and you tell yourself that every day eventually your sub-conscious will start to believe it, as it doesn't have a choice. It becomes your reality.

An example would be way back in the day when they thought the world was flat. You were told if you went to the edge you would fall off. That isn't true, but you believed it, it was your reality. You have access to unlimited wealth, that is the truth. So why not make it your reality?

When you were younger, if someone told you were ugly or stupid all your life, you would have grown up thinking that. If though you could have been the most beautiful, intelligent person. But your reality would be that you were not attractive and not very smart. But you see, you can choose your reality. And by saying positive affirmations every single day, you can change your mindset, you can change your paradigm, you can change your life. We truly are the creators of our own lives.

What is one of your desires? Want is something you want, and want it in your life now? Create an affirmation for that particular thing or person. Start by saying "I am so happy and grateful now that..." and finish it off with what you want. How does it make you feel? Start saying it at least once every day. And make sure you feel it from inside while you say it.

I hope this helps at least one person who wasn't sure why affirmations work. As it is lack of information that causes people to doubt the Laws Of Life.

Start using the Law Of Attraction to bring forth all of your desires. It can and will happen to you if so choose. For books and programs by experts in this field and where I got my start, view my collection of Law Of Attraction books.
