Now - why is it that your affirmations don't work? I'm going to take a guess - it's because they're BORING!!
Try saying this out loud: "I am wealthy and successful" - what comes up for you when you say that?
If your mind says "yeah right" or "no you're not" or "what a load of b**locks", then your affirmations are not working and we need to fix that ASAP!
What's the point of affirmations?
Affirmations are reverse hypnosis - mantras designed to counteract all the negative messages your brain has heard over the years - which is A LOT.
Like, more than you realise.
Think about every time you said, thought or heard:
Because I'm not _______ enough
I'm too ______
Oh, you idiot/dummy/fatty/whatever
(Fill in the blanks with all the shitty, repeated messages your brain has heard - from you and from others.)
Positive affirmations literally re-write the brain to make you feel better about yourself.
BUT - only if they're GOOD.
Powerful, effective affirmations light you up! They make you smile or even make you laugh your arse off - they're supposed to feel INSPIRING!
But too often they're MEH. Either too sugary and vague, or a spiritual word-jumble that means nothing to you.
Affirmations need to be:
Present tense (I am, I have, I feel)
Believable - (I'm getting richer by the day vs I'm a billionaire)
Charged with positive emotion (love, amazing, thriving, gorgeous)
Personal - sounds like you wrote it, not some rando guru you've never met
Check this out - which one of these speaks to you?
I am a beautiful goddess of light
I'm a f**king sparkly unicorn and I shine my light into this world!
There's no right answer here! For me, it's definitely number 2 - but whatever speaks to you is the right one - for you!
And - pro tip: write out your favourites - make one your phone wallpaper, so you get constant reminders of how fabulous you are. This is a fantastic way to re-wire your brain!
Think how often you pick up your phone - that's how often you'll get your gorgeous, inspiring reminder.
Now - because I am a very silly person, and a total potty mouth, I have spent rather longer than I should, creating 21 animated affirmations that TOTALLY LIGHT ME UP. And I am sharing them with you!
