All you need to know about affirmations and the subconscious mind connection
If you are on the path of self-development, then you are very likely to have come across the term affirmations. Here we discuss everything about affirmations and the subconscious mind. I hope you are going to enjoy what you’re about to discover. You are very welcome to join, learn and invoke your own affirmations from today on.
Everything you should know about affirmations – What are affirmations?
Imagine you are on a trekking trip, although in good physical shape, you have never challenged yourself physically. Even though you are a bit scared but seeing your other team members, you are also motivated and you keep telling yourself that you can do it. Of course, you make the hike successful.
Did you notice that this continuous self-talk, or repetition of little phrases that you did, gave you the energy, push or the much-needed drive to “act”?
You may also have come to the awareness that you are able to change your mental state. Suddenly your outlook switches from being fearful and worried at all times, to be more optimistic and seeing yourself as a winner. These things happen because of affirmations!
Every thought that you repeat out loud, or say in your head, is an affirmation. When we put all the thoughts together, or the soliloquy, then it becomes a stream of affirmations.
People create this flow of invocations with their thoughts, words and emotions that are carefully practiced by the subconscious mind. The process of repeating affirmations, which could also be through a continuous inner dialogue or someone who has told us, urges the subconscious to take action.
Positive and Negative Affirmations
The subconscious mind is extremely professional at executing whatever command is given. It does not distinguish between a good command and a bad command.
The subconscious mind is unable to filter out the orders that are not good in a person’s life from the ones that are beneficial, healthy and positive.
Your subconscious accepts as true what you are repeating. It dutifully attracts appropriate events and situations into your life. So why not just choose statements that are positive, constructive, healthy and uplifting?
This way, you attract good health, loyal friends, affluent living and positive outcomes.
I always recommend to truthfully think twice about what we are saying and thinking. If a negative thought enters our mind, then we must try to snap instantly out of it. The way I do it is by practicing awareness.
Although I am not yet perfect at it, I am making daily progress in catching my every thought. In case it’s a dreary notion, I simply snap my fingers and say to myself “What are you manifesting?”
This brings me instantly back onto the right path, and I consciously substitute the bleak thoughts with something uplifting.
If I cannot come up with something extremely positive at that exact time, then I resort to gratitude. And, there is always something we ought and can be grateful for.
Even if it’s the mere fact that, right at that time being, you are able to stand at that spot, wherever it may be, and have the chance to say grace. The simple certainty that you are alive at that very moment is worth all the thankfulness you can release.
Appreciation leads to an optimistic mindset, and an uplifting outlook attracts positive circumstances. Long story short: Gratitude brings abundances.
Thus, I suggest for everyone to make a personalized gratitude affirmation his daily routine. It doesn’t have to be endlessly long and complicated.
Make it rather a simple, but heartfelt, few words of thankfulness that you feel within your deepest core. Say these, whether out loud or inside of your mind, for only a few minutes every day.
Following, you soon shall see miraculous changes within yourself and your surroundings.
Why should you say affirmations?
From the first day of your life, others have spoken to you. Those who are close to you have repeated certain statements to you. Later, you also started talking to yourself and repeating certain words or assertions.
This has created a set of belief systems for you. It is not necessary that these were true or false; facts or fictions; negative or positive – but you have come to accept them and surpass the values.
Our beliefs are thought patterns that we have acquired and nurtured since childhood. While some of them work well for us, others can work against us.
It is good for you if these statements were positive and constructive. But it is not beneficial for you if they are negative or harmful.
It is the second category that can sabotage and discourage us from realizing or attaining our full potential for what we can actually achieve in life.
It can even make us blind to the fact that we are so much more than flesh and bones. Knowing how to use affirmations gives us an amazing tool to improve our lives and guide us towards success.
The process is simple
Increase the positive balance, and against the negative or harmful beliefs, by not repeating negative affirmations and counteracting them with new positive assertions.
Positive affirmations are short self-scripts that can condition the subconscious mind to help us develop a more positive perception of ourselves.
Remember what we spoke about above? Our subconscious mind doesn’t make any difference between good or bad, right or wrong.
It simply is a humble servant who brings to us whatever we truly focus on. Let me tell you one truth that should change your life if you apply the words correctly: You never get what you want and desire; you always receive what you make the center of your attention with your thoughts and emotions.
Here, again, affirmations are very beneficial. On the one hand, affirmations can help to change harmful behaviors to a desired or more acceptable one.
On the other hand, it can aid to achieve goals. Positive assertions can cease and help reduce the damage caused by negative scripts, which we have repeatedly told ourselves so far.
What do the positive affirmations do?
In addition to some of the points already discussed, positive affirmations help stop the wasteful and unproductive soliloquy.
Not only that, the positive affirmations replace it with motivation, positive self-image and enhanced self-confidence.
Next the positive confirmations:
1- Change the focus from unwanted to desired objects and beliefs. So it helps to focus the mind on the higher goals.
2- Influence the subconscious mind and activate its powers.
3- Help to change our thinking, which kick starts the transformation of our lives
4- Change the beliefs and the way we behave. This can bring us to the right circumstances and in contact with real people who can help us with our goals.
5- Feel positive, energetic and active, gaining greater control over our lives
6- Make the change process easier
7- Transform our inner and outer worlds.
When to use positive affirmations?
Affirmations can be used in almost any situation in life where you want to move from negative to a positive state. One can, furthermore, use assertions in the realms of life to reinforce or extend the benefits you already receive.
Third, affirmations are also useful for persuing and achieving personal goals. Once you’ve set the goals, you can use positive affirmations to help motivate yourself to reach them.

How to make affirmations?
Start by thinking about the areas of your life that you want to change. For example, do you wish you could overcome your shyness and have more confidence? Or do you want a better relationship with your loved one or your family? Or do you want more money?
Choose one area to work at the same time.
Choose a few affirmations to which you agree, and you think are full of effects. Also, pick confirmations that are not too long. Affirmations should be positive and in the presence. For example, “I am fit and in proper weight” rather than “I am not fat” or “I am getting slim”.
1- Set a time and place where you can be with yourself, completely relaxed and nobody will bother you for 5 – 10 minutes.
2- Sit in a comfortable position or lie down, make sure your back is straight. Be as relaxed as you can be.
3- Repeat these affirmations slowly in your head or whisper them. Pay attention to the words and their meanings as you repeat yourself.
4- Bring in more desire, emotions and feelings to get better and faster results.
5- With strong faith, you visualize the manifestation of what you say and, thus, manifest your wish into your life.
Later, as the practice evolves, you can do the affirmations everywhere like on the plane, at the airport, walking or waiting for a bus, etc.
