What we think we become: The benefits of “I AM” AFFIRMATIONS

Well hello there, gorgeous people! ……I know, I know, it has been a few days and you guys missed me. I missed you guys too!!

Today I’m talking about the fact that “I AM” SO AMAZING! I know how arrogant, nuts and crazy I might look writing that statement so boldly and honestly! But I’m not going to lie; it feels good to say it because It is the truth and the more I say it, the more I can feel it within every inch of my body. “I AM” AN AMAZING PERSON! You must be wondering where this attitude is coming from, all of a sudden. To take away the confusion, let me rewind…..take a few step backward and do a proper introduction of what I will be sharing is this blog.Today’s blog post is all about, positive thoughts, positive actions, and positive expressions. Today’s blog is about my experience with affirmations and to be more specific, my experience with “I AM” affirmations. As mentioned in my last blog, I do affirmations on a daily basis and I will continue doing that. I am really inspired to share my experience with you.

WHAT ARE AFFIRMATIONS
Positive Affirmations or Mantras are some sorts of phrases or words that you keep listening to, repeating them in your own head or even out loud or you could actually write them down…that works well for me. In fact every thought you think and every word you speak is an affirmation. All of our self-talk, our internal dialogue, is a stream of affirmations. You’re using affirmations every moment whether you know it or not. You’re affirming and creating your life experiences with every word and thought.

The idea with affirmations is that it trains your subconscious mind to actually believing what you are telling it so once you believe in it, it becomes automatic then you start acting upon it. For example… I am happy, I am beautiful, I am wise, I am happy, I am beautiful, I am wise,….go on…

MY EXPERIENCE 

I started doing positive affirmations almost three years ago. I can remember that I was reading lots of books, articles, and anything about how to improve myself and the quality of my life and that’s when I came across Affirmations. At first, I went online and search for videos for spoken positive affirmations whether it was for well being, success, self-love or relaxation. I was just choosing the ones that I thought were best for me. Even though I am a very patient person I wanted to feel and see the change right away and since I was not patient in this particular situation, I started slacking off.

On some point, I was having a major set back in my personal life and I was reaching out to everything that could help me keep my head up and get back on track. That’s when I decided to start doing affirmations again and in some unexplainable way I felt the spiritual need to give it my all. I started to create my own affirmations based on what I want to believe and see in my life, I started saying it in the present tense as if I already have it. And I went on and on for days.
Getting to the point, I started changing! When I looked back after a couple of months, I could see multiple positive differences. My life literally went true a transformation. Since then I started believing that doing affirmations isn’t something that works for some and won’t work for everyone; it works when you WORK IT! But, you have to consistently work it. Once you make this a conscious habit for some time, it becomes an unconscious habit – and in the end, you have re-trained your brain. Now I am enjoying all the benefits.
• I became more connected to my soul, calmer, more positive, stronger
• I stayed on track with my wants and needs.
• I started to surround myself with positive things and people
• Good things keep happening to me
• I became more grateful in Life
• Negative things in my life started to disappear

“All that we are is the result of what we have thought. The mind is everything. What we think we become.” ~Buddha

You can start using positive affirmation today to improve your life and help you to get started on where you want to be. Think about one thing that you want right now and make this your positive affirmation. For example, if you have a competition ahead, keep telling yourself, “I am the champion”. This boosts your confidence and allows you to see yourself where you want to be. This also helps you to create specific goals and gain the motivation necessary to achieve them.
Closing off, I want you to keep in mind that each of us is unique and our fantastic-ness comes out in different ways, shapes, forms, and sizes. It’s all about seeing the great in you and appreciating yourself. Your affirmations must directly come from you and not from other people for it to become effective.

If you’ve done affirmations before, I’d love to read your experience. Have you had success with it? If so, I would love to feature your story in an upcoming blog.
If it’s going to be your first time doing affirmations, please tell me how it went. I would love to answer any question for you, so feel free to comment below.

I Hope this blog helped you out…Have a wonderful weekend xoxo. O!
