How To Write daily Affirmations and control your reality so you can create exactly what you want in life
What Are Affirmations?
Affirmations are strong, powerful statements that retrain your subconscious and conscious mind. It’s a control thought, that will eventually become a belief. This belief will help shape your daily behavior. Our lives are on autopilot and the habits we have created through the years are the program. So, to help change our program/habits to something we always wanted to do or be, we use an affirmation.
We have over 500,000 thoughts a day and more than half are negative thoughts. Some of our internal thoughts aren’t even ours, they may be from our parents, friends, or society. So, to have more control of your life, creating powerful affirmations of who you want to be or what you want will change your life.
Affirmations are controlled thoughts and your body reacts to whatever your mind does. So, if you create an affirmation for fitness such as “ I am fit, I go to the gym weekly” this thought will program your subconscious mind and show up as a new behavior. You will start going to the gym regularly and love it.
What are the Benefits of Affirmations?
Affirmation benefits us in a lot of ways. It helps reshape your paradigm so that you can creating the life you want. When you start affirming and controlling your thoughts you learn how to control other things in life too.
Stating affirmations such as “I am full of abundance”, “ I am a world traveler” and so forth. Once these statements are repeated daily, it is convincing the subconscious mind that you are a world traveler. Even though you aren’t currently traveling, your mind doesn’t know that by saying these affirmations you are affirming and commanding yourself that you are a world traveler. This will create a new paradigm in your reality that will start to reflect that inner desire to travel. Things will start to work out in your favor, you may get a raise so you will have more money to travel, your job may extend its vacation time to 3 weeks off, or in my case you may win a travel contest. More opportunities to travel will appear in your reality.

How To Write Affirmations and use Effectively
There isn’t a right or wrong way to use affirmations. You are the creator of your life so use this tool as you please, but as a suggestion, it is best to say your affirmation 2-3X in the morning and before bed.
1. Start Your Affirmation With I Am:
Use the phrases “I am__” or A positive statement. Starting your affirmation with I am is giving your mind a commend. This is a direct statement that commands your mind to think or act this way. For example, “I am happy.”
2. Use Them In The Present Tense
Affirmations are used to trick the mind, so speak as if you already have what you want. Also, Believe that you already have it. If you Want to Move to a different country, then speak in the present tense as if you are already there and make sure you believe it. An example of a daily Affirmation is, ” I love living in Japan , it brings me so much joy” or “I am living happily in Japan. ”
3. Write or say your affirmation
Repeat your affirmation for at least 1-5 minutes or write them down several times for a few minutes a day twice a day.
4. No Negativity
Affirmation is a positive statement to shape your mind. Try not to use negative words like ” no, do not, want” by doing this you are creating resistance. For example, “I want more money” this is telling the universe that you want money, so the verb is “want” and the universe will give you exactly that a “want”. The key is to trick the mind that you already have money so it will show up in your reality. So, instead, use ” I have money” or ” I am financially free”.
5. Be Specific
Niche down, be as specific with your affirmation. If you like to move to Japan, A great specific affirmation is “ I am so happy and grateful that I live in my nice safe apartment in Kyoto, Japan”
6. Let Go and Believe
After saying your Affirmation, let it go and believe. Once you are finish repeating them, have the feeling of completion as if you already have it. The universe is energy and by putting a feeling behind the affirmation that feeling will manifest into your world. If my affirmation is “ I am a world traveler” I would envision myself getting off of the airplane to my new destination and I focus on that feeling of excitement. So, as I say “I am a world traveler” I feel excitement behind it.
7. Take Action
Also, remember that action behind the affirmations will help accelerate the results. If your affirmation is ” I am financially independent ” then start creating a savings account or create a plan that will help you become financially independent along say repeating your affirmation.
Befor You Go
Affirmation is the best way to get ahold of your life and create the life you want. Spending time with yourself repeating your affirmation in the morning and night will transform your life. Make a commitment to do them for 30 days, until you form a new habit. Some things manifest immediately others take time but if you have the belief it will happen then it will.
