Positive Affirmations and Words to Live By

What Are Affirmations?

What Are Positive Affirmations?

I believe that everything in our life began as a thought. What we give out - we get back. When we create peace and harmony in our minds and think positive thoughts, we attract positive experiences and people. What we believe, both about ourselves and our lives becomes true for us. Did you know that nearly 90% of our thoughts are negative? We have the power to turn any negative thought into a positive one through the use of affirmations.


The definition of an affirmation as it pertains to psychology is: positive statement of achievement: a positive thought or statement affirming that a desired goal has been reached or is within reach.

Another definition is: something affirmed: a positive statement or declaration of the truth or existence of something.

Learning to use positive affirmations is a process, a technique to change negative self-talk into something more positive. It involves repeating positive phrases and can be quite powerful. If you add visualization to your positive self-talk, this speeds up the process.

The following affirmations are a list that I have collected throughout my life. A few, I have written myself and I encourage you to add your own as needed. A good time to come up with affirmations is while walking or at any time you are viewing nature.

When first beginning an affirmation exercise, you may not believe or accept what you are saying. No matter - simply continue with repeating the phrase throughout the entire day and if needed into the next day or even the week.

Accept Your Uniqueness

Self Approval Affirmations

Affirm:

I Love and Approve of Myself Just the Way I Am (I appreciate all that I do and I am good enough just as I am. I speak up for myself and I ask for what I want. I claim my power .)

I Love Myself Totally in the Now

I Experience Love Wherever I Go (Love is everywhere and I am loving and lovable. Loving people come into my life and I find myself easily expressing love to others .)

I Accept My Uniqueness

I Deserve the Best and I Accept the Best Now (I am mentally and emotionally equipped to enjoy a prosperous and loving life. It is my birthright to deserve all good. I claim my good .)

I am at Peace With My Age and I Keep My Mind Healthy and Happy. I Enjoy Every Precious Day.

When I Believe in Myself, So Do Others.

Affirmations For Letting Go

" What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies within us." Oliver Wendall Holmes

I am willing to let go. (I let go of all past negative thoughts and experiences. I release others to experience whatever is meaningful for them and I am free to create whatever is meaningful to me.)

The past is over and I Let it Go. (This a new day, this is a new minute, one that I have never lived before. I stay in the now and enjoy each and every moment .)

I release all things from my past that cloud my vision. (I see only the perfection in all life. I willingly forgive. I bring love into my vision, and I see with light and compassion .)

I am at peace with my past. I choose to release the past now. I move forward by letting go of the past. I choose to forgive myself and others. I am grateful and happy to experience new joys in life.

I can release the past and forgive everyone. ( I free myself and everyone in my life from old past hurts. They are free and I am free to move on, into a new and glorious experience .)

Man's Greatest Gift Is His Thinking Mind

You are a mental magnet. Every thought you think, every word you say is an affirmation.
You are a mental magnet. Every thought you think, every word you say is an affirmation. | Source

Imagination - the Workshop of the Human Mind

Man's greatest gift is his thinking mind - Napoleon Hill

Every thought you think, every word you say, is an affirmation. All of our self-talk or inner dialogue is a stream of affirmations. By choosing to think and say positive affirmations as true, the subconscious is forced into one of two reactions - avoidance or reappraisal.

Continually repeating affirmations with conviction and passion will chip away at even the strongest resistance.

Because affirmations actually reprogram your thought patterns, they change the way you think and feel about things, and because you have replaced dysfunctional beliefs with your own new positive beliefs, positive change comes easily and naturally. This will start to reflect in your external life, you will start to experience seismic changes for the better in many aspects of your life.

An important part of believing is to feel "as if it has already happened." I have found that one of the best ways to evoke that feeling is to express gratitude after you recite an affirmation.

An attitude of gratitude is absolutely essential in your practice of affirmations.

You are a mental magnet.

Every thought you entertain is a force that goes out, and every thought comes back, laden with its kind...Ralph Walden Trine

Take time out of a busy day to practice imagery in your mind. With children it's a way of life. We can be anything or go anywhere. All we have to do is imagine. Somehow, we tend to lose this practice when we become adults.

When we use our imagination we are turning possibilities into realities.

stars439 - We all have negative thoughts, some more than others. The good news is - we do have the power to change our thoughts.

God bless you and keep you.

Positive Affirmations are Great! God words are Miraculous:) My favoirite affirmation is: "Action Conquers Fear!" and one of my favorite verses from the Bible has: "Choose Ye This Day, Whom You Will Serve!" This latter one, really helped me when faced with choices in life...which choice was reflective of God? It helped me to choose the better path, when faced with the fork in the road. Lovely HubPage! Really enjoyed this one, look forward to reading more of your hubs:)

embee77 6 years ago

Great thoughts and great advice! My experience with affirmations was life-changing. If you can reframe the automatic negative thoughts (ants) you have about yourself into affirmations and add them to the things you already like about yourself, then say them all twice a day for 30 days, you WILL change the way you think about yourself. It's based in research and it works. Of course, you may need professional help. But go for it. It's worth every penny.

VC,

I absolutely love this hub. You are absolutely right. When we change our thinking about ourselves, the world, and others, we change our lives. Everything we have, do, and are is a product of our thinking. God has given us an awesome tool to create whatever we can conceive. He allows us to determine what we do with this amazing gift. I realize that the more I focus on the positive things in life, the more productive I become and the less tolerant I become of negative energies that are offered to us on a daily basis. In addition, I am making many new friends that are like-minded in their belief of their own abilities and their roles in contributing for the greater good. Did I tell you that I absolutely love this hub! Keep churning them out my friend.

Reggie.

I can feel the love that comes from your writing. A truly great hub. I too am a devotee of positive thinking and try to cleanse my consciosness daily to allow the good to flow through. There are so few truths and so many interesting ways to express them. I was wonderng which of the affirmations were personal and original. I guess all of them that you didn't give credit to the person that originated them were yours. When you write the way you have in this hub I believe that you have reached a spiritual level where you are a conduit from the higher power that is there for all of us to connect to.

Keep up the great writing and count me as one of your biggest fans.

Wow, I really loved this. I found some great new affirmations here, I have a tendancy to "slide" and forget some of mine as my day goes on because I have several lengthy ones I've been using. No more excuse now - You just gave me a great gift - Thank you!


vocalcoach profile image

vocalcoach 6 years ago from Nashville Tn. Author

cwarden - I am thrilled that you have found my hub to be motivating. I try every single day to come up with a new affirmation to keep things "fresh". The power of the mind is almost scary. We use so little of our potential.

Aside from how powerful affirmations are, the brain will remain youthful and refrain from aging as fast by using it in this way. Thanks so much.

It is very easy for me to slip into the negative, particularly at work. I'm going to print this hub and practice these! Thank you! One of my doctors (a chiropractor) is fond of saying that we become what we think about and our thoughts are capable of changing our world.

You have already begun by reading this hub and printing it out to practice. Changes will occur, even at work. No one can hurt you with words if you do not give them permission to do so. Stay close, Dink96. I will help you. Stay in the light...walk with power. Blessings.

Beautifully put and thank you for the great affirmations. I try to use affirmations regularly, particularly when I am running when I repeat to myself "everyday in every way, I am becoming healthier and healthier' - it really spurs me on. I think of myself as a fairly positive thinker but when I aware of my thinking I find myself surprised at how much auto pilot negative thinking I do. Affirmations are such a good way to turn that kind of thinking around.

carrietomson - Hi there - You've given me such joy with your grateful comments. And living in the past is something I had to work on for a very long time.

Thanks Audrey, that's very kind of you. This is wonderful what you are doing, I thank God for people like you who are trying to spread unconditional love by showing all of us the path to self realization. I realized long time ago through prayers and meditation that all of us are gifted eternal soul. We all have the built in ability to overcome any physical and emotional problem just by cultivating positive thoughts in our hidden fields of subconscious minds and just like magic, the entire universe come to your aid to do wonders in your life. Thanks and love to all.
