Affirmations and Positivity ๐Ÿ’

Everyone has that little voice within themselves that constantly tells them when they can or cannot do something. Most often, that little voice is giving you a million and one reasons why you canโ€™t, which only adds to our self-doubt.

Positive affirmations are positive thoughts or words that describe a desired situation or outcome, such as success. These have to be repeated over and over again in order to trigger the subconscious mind into positive action. 

Most people spend far too much time repeating negative words and statements in their mind, whether consciously or subconsciously. Keep telling yourself that you canโ€™t do something, that you are too lazy, or that you are stupid and donโ€™t be surprised if you never succeed at anything. Words and statements work both ways, to build or destroy. But their capacity to cause harm or good is up to us.

The repetition of positive affirmations help focus your mind on your aim, automatically building corresponding mental images in the conscious mind, when then affects the subconscious mind. By using this process consciously and intently, you harness the power of your subconscious mind to transform your habits, behaviour , mental attitude and reactins.

The most effective affirmations are those that are composed by yourself. But in order to be truly effective, you must believe whole-heartedly in your own affirmations. It is best to state your positive daily affirmations in the present tense, for example, โ€œI am…,โ€ rather than โ€œI will be….โ€ Also, choose words which will evoke positive mental images, describing what you really want. If you desire to lose weight, tell yourself โ€œI am getting slimโ€ rather than โ€œI am not fatโ€.

The transformative powers of positive affirmations are very real. By repeatedly stating what you want to be true in your life, you mentally and emotionally see and feel it as true, thereby attracting it into your life.

Write down a few affirmations of your own and leave them around your house or workplace. ๐Ÿ“

Welcome, My name is Olivia Shepherd, and I am the founder of this awesome blog about depression and mental illness. I started this blog in 2016 after being diagnosed with Major Depression, Anxiety and PTSD. I didn't have anybody to talk too or share my feelings with, so I decided to share them publicly to help others.

I also want to empower your voice to speak up and fight the stigma surrounding this illness. Iโ€™m also the founder of AshesToBeauty Mentoring & Outreach, a virtual online service dedicated to to the positive development and accelerated recovery of girls and women who have experienced abuse and depression, Ashes To Beauty strives to empower women to take their lives back by providing life skill education, one-on-one mentorship and impactful personal tools by which these impacted women can build the foundation for a successful future.
