Affirmations have been around forever, but they didn’t really seem to hit mainstream until Louise Hay became a leader in the self-help movement. Now everywhere you turn you can find books, classes, and workshops that incorporate affirmations. Affirmations are very useful in helping you change limiting beliefs and critical, sabotaging thoughts. With attention and intention you can consciously reprogram your thoughts and beliefs to support your a prosperous, successful, happy, healthy life of freedom, peace, and ease. Affirmations alone cannot recreate your life, but they are a tool that can have a very positive impact on your mental and emotional well-being as well as your personal and professional relationships. As with all other tools this takes practice and persistence to see results, but the time invested is well worth the effort. Below are some affirmations to get you started. Use affirmations in the morning when you get up to start your day well, during the day when you find yourself struggling, in the evening before bed to train your brain while your are sleeping.
