An affirmation is a definitive statement that something is so. Affirmations are self-fulfilling prophecies. Creating personal affirmations is a way of declaring and affirming a belief you have and a vision you hold. Affirmations are more than an expression of statements or desires, they can create our beliefs and habits. When you create specific clear statements—affirmations—the universe responds with precision, giving you all you need to manifest what you desire. Your outside world is a reflection of your internal world or your internal programming. Put another way, you become what you think about most. Repetition is the mother of learning, and the key to effective affirmations is making bold, clear, positive statements in the present tense.

Affirmations are even more powerful when you experience them as if they are already true. Emotions, clarity and feelings make your affirmations come alive. When you first begin your affirmations, your old beliefs might fire up, but if you practice your affirmations enough, you will change the hard wiring in your brain. Act as if.

How you will benefit: Every time you read or listen to an affirmation in the correct brain wave state, it becomes a stronger force in your life and you will begin to manifest what you desire. You will develop the right neural pathways associated with your new affirmations and over time, you will begin to believe the affirmations like an actor who believes the role they are playing after many rehearsals.
