The law of attraction states that positive & negative thoughts create positive & negative experiences. Thoughts are a form of energy. What we consistently focus our thoughts on manifest in reality. Like attracts like & consistently thinking negative thoughts will bring on negative experiences. It's all about perception.
Mindfully talking to yourself in a positive manner will create positive thoughts which will create positive experiences. Sounds silly. Sounds too simple. It works & I could ramble on for days with stories of those I know personally, whose lives have positively changed after implementing these simple, mindful words into their daily lives.
Positive affirmations are simple phrases used daily as a practice of positive thinking & self empowerment. Speaking to yourself kindly, in a positive manner will have a positive impact on your life.
Ways to integrate positive affirmations
- At bedtime, write a list of 3 things that occurred earlier that day, that you are grateful for. Write 3 positive things that you did that day. In the morning, read your list & reflect for a few minutes. Now add to it. List 3 things that you are grateful for. It could be the same 3, or you could grow your list. Add 3 positive things that you want to accomplish for the day. At bedtime, read your list. Reflect & repeat.
- During daily routines, such as showering or washing dishes, practice being present with positive affirmations by speaking "I am". Speak affirmations during the duration of whatever tasks you choose.
