“How do I make positive affirmations for healing work for me?”
This common question reveals that so many people are struggling to make their affirmation practices work.
We know that affirmations can be life changing. Perhaps we’ve watched friends, or loved ones, or other members of our community turn their lives around and find success through the the use of affirmations.
So what do they know that we don’t?
Well, it all starts with a foundational understanding of how and why affirmations help us reach our goals.
What Is A Positive Affirmation For Healing, Anyway?
According to Psychology Today, an affirmation is “a statement said with confidence about a perceived truth” that we would like to believe.
If you’re unsure about the importance and power of your beliefs, please read our previous article. It explains how your beliefs are the key to manifesting your dreams. And I mean all of your dreams.
So, an affirmation is simply a belief that you would like to have. It’s a phrase that is more meaningful and helpful to you than your current programming, whatever that may be. Repeating affirmations is the best way to download new beliefs into your mind that will crowd out the old, harmful ones.
Cleaning up your beliefs is a surefire way to up your game and forever change your life.
In another past article of ours, we explained the power of I am affirmations. I’ve linked it here for your convenience. Check it out if you need any clarification about the interplay between beliefs & affirmations. It also includes easy top follow instructions for maximizing the benefits you will receive from using positive affirmations for healing.
An affirmation practice is a fantastic way to heal yourself. Much of the pain and fear that we experience stems from faulty beliefs that are untrue and that do not serve us. Old patterns of belief are like deeply rutted trails in our minds. The best way to quit trudging these old paths that go nowhere good, is by using affirmations to forge new ones.
Science Proves the Importance of Thought Pathways
Human neurobiology perfectly mirrors this analogy. Networks of connected nerve cells are called pathways. And the more they are used, the stronger and bigger they become. If we we want to break down old pathways of belief and rewire our brains for health, wealth, and total abundance, then we need to supply our brains with better pathways to travel along.
And affirmations are an extremely powerful tool for achieving this. Simply repeat the statements below on a regular basis, and the process of rewiring your neuronal pathways will begin automatically. All you have to do is tell your brain what to think, and it will do the rest.
