Affirmations in Practice
So, how do you get in on this power?
Step #1 Decide on Your Goals
What are you really looking to get out of your affirmation practice? Increased confidence? Happiness? Peace? Write these goals down somewhere you see them often, like as a widget on your phone or on your bathroom mirror.
Step #2 Select Affirmations that Align With Your Goals
Inspiration for affirmations can come from anywhere and they can be as simple as “I am worthy” and as complex as you want to make them.
Find the affirmations that not only align to your goals, but resonate with you on a deep level as well. In the beginning, be sure to write these down with your goals as well so you can start memorizing them.
Step #3 Practice
Practice makes permanent! Take 5 minutes a day to practice your affirmations until you don’t need your paper anymore.
Step #4 Embody Your Affirmations
As you start to remember your affirmations, let them weave themselves into your daily life. For example, if one of yours is “stay calm,” flash back to this affirmation when you feel a wave of panic coming on.
