What do you think about most of the time? Are your thoughts positive, negative, or neutral? When something doesn’t go the way you want, what is your first thought? Our thoughts are constantly running around in our minds. Sometimes we forget that we can manage our thoughts. What we focus on expands in our lives. When we learn how to shift our focus from what we don’t want to what we do want, miracles happen.
Learning to use affirmations is one way to shift your focus from what you “don’t” want to what you “do” want. Affirmations are positive statements of truth and change. An affirmation can reflect how you truly feel about yourself—“I am unique.” Affirmations can also help you move to where you want to be—“I relax and allow my inner spirit to guide my life.” Your subconscious mind is like a video recorder that never stops running; it picks up sounds, ideas, thoughts, and feelings. Whether you believe them or not, affirmations make an impact on your subconscious mind. These statements help you train and focus on what you “truly” want in your life. When you realize the power that you have to manage your thoughts and emotions, you move into a new understanding of how to truly engage with life.
I recommend you think, write, and say affirmations to continue to impress your subconscious mind. You can think them throughout your day and definitely focus on them whenever you find yourself feeling stressed, anxious, depressed, or having feelings that are not positive. Here are a few of my favorites. Enjoy!
- I am a unique divine expression of love.
- I am available to receive more good than I have ever imagined.
- I am alive, alert, awake, and enthusiastic!
- I believe my path is mine alone and I know that I am where I should be at this time, space, and place.
- I relax and allow my inner spirit to guide my life.
- I design all areas of my life with ease and grace.
- I am grateful for all the teachers and lessons of my life.
When you find yourself focusing on what you don’t want, try one or all of these affirmations to jumpstart your thoughts back to where you truly want to be. Remember—you have the power to create the life you want to live.
