Using the following ways to work on your affirmations will increase their power to help you manifest that which you’re working towards bringing into your life. You only need to spend 5 to 10 minutes every day to make a difference.
1) Say Them Out Loud
Affirmations work best when spoken with power and conviction. It’s normal if you feel uncomfortable saying certain affirmations in the beginning… because you may not fully believe them yet.
Saying them out loud over and over again helps to re-program your sub-conscious mind to accept these new beliefs gradually.
You’ll realize that it gets easier and easier the more you do it. Over time you’ll start to say the affirmations with more and more conviction.
2) Say Them In Front Of The Mirror
In fact, it is recommended that you print out and paste your affirmations near your mirrors so that you can look at your reflection when you’re saying them. This is an extremely powerful way to anchor the new empowering beliefs to yourself.
3) Say Them In Your Head
An alternative to saying the affirmations out loud is to say them in your head. Perhaps, you live in a big family or in a place where it may not be convenient to practice reciting the affirmations out loud to yourself. If so, this is one good way to use your affirmations.
4) Record Them And Listen To The Recording When Necessary
Another way to do it is to record yourself saying the affirmations and play back the recording when you feel it’s necessary to do so…for example, when you find yourself having negative thoughts.
This makes it easy to listen to your affirmations when travelling from one place to another and just before you fall asleep. Research has shown that the sub-conscious mind is most open to suggestions just after you wake up and just before you fall asleep.
5) Write Them Down
You may also want to copy the affirmations down in your own handwriting. Not sure why it works but it does! A lot of people swear by it.
It’s the same as writing sales copy… Top copywriters know that if you practice copying high response advertisements in your own handwriting, it actually improves your ability to write great copy.
Instead of questioning why it works, why not just give it a shot?
