Affirmations … what’s your take?

Affirmations … what’s your take?

I recently spoke with a chap who did a great number of affirmations at the beginning of his spiritual investigations and like many people found them very beneficial. Now, many years later he has started dedicating time to them again and is enjoying the far-reaching positive effects of affirmations.

Affirmations can be a wonderful tool and so easy to use because we’re always thinking and talking. One of the things that we spoke about was that affirmations work best when they feel right inside. When you say something out loud like “I feel fantastic” when internally you don’t, it can make us feel like a fraud, so best to avoid that. There is a strain of thought out there that you can fake it till you make it but that doesn’t work for everyone. I believe it’s better to find an affirmation that feels right, even if it isn’t as far-reaching and all wonderful as you’d imagine.
