Why Positive Affirmations Work

By: Carrie Spry

Everything in your life is determined by the thoughts you hold in your subconscious mind. You need positive statements to build a positive mind. If you consistently repeat these statements, you will create positive subconscious thoughts. These statements are called positive affirmations.
These positive thoughts, once instated, will reinforce the new positive inner-image you have of yourself. You will be replacing old negative thinking with new positive thinking and doing it at a subconscious level. This will give you access to all the positive energy you have within yourself. This will help you create a new positive reality.
Each emotion needs to be experience fully while using positive affirmations. Close your eyes and imagine and believe that each state is a fact and is true. If you visualize and feel these emotions, your results will happen more quickly.
The first 30 days are usually the make or break when it comes to positive affirmations. It takes about 21 days to make a change in your mental image, for some it may be longer. I suggest 30 to be safe. Writing them down until you know them by heart is a good way to start. If you are using them as frequently as you should, it will not take long.
Some examples of places to use them are, waking up in the morning, each time you go to the bathroom, brushing your teeth, washing your hands, before each meal and before you go to sleep at night. These are just examples and you can create your own situations. But to achieve the best results and to not forget to use them, you should use certain points in the day that will trigger you into saying them, as in the suggestions above. If you want, you can set some type of alarm and say them every hour on the hour. Another idea is to tape them on the ceiling over your bed, on your mirrors, your refrigerator doors, your cupboard doors, on the clocks, etc. It's your choice.
Another thing that will help you change your thought patterns more quickly is to continually remove all negative thoughts you experience daily. If you allow negative thought to dominate, your positive affirmations will not make any progress. As soon as you notice a negative thought, eject it.
Most of humanity have overly negative minds, that was how we were raised. As you become conscious of your thought patterns, notice when your thoughts are negative and eject them. Usually, it takes times to notice these thoughts because we are caught up in the moment and acting unconsciously, but with practice, you can catch these negative as they are happening. And before long, you will become conscious of them before they even begin.
