The Power of Positive Affirmations

Positive affirmations are the positive things we tell ourselves over and over again that become our truths. When we speak this way to ourselves, and to others, we are reinforcing good in our life. The opposite is true for negative affirmations. When we are negative to ourselves we will only see that which is bad in our lives. I found this from a website…

Everything that we repeatedly say to ourselves out loud or in our thoughts are an affirmation. The Reticular Activating System (RAS) is a part of our brain that makes words that get repeated over time as part of our identity, positive or negative. Just like sowing seeds in a fruitful garden. When we water and nurture the seeds every day, they will grow (most of them). That´s like repeating an affirmation. If you have a tomato plant seed…you plant that seed…water it (focus)…can you expect to get apples? No of course not. You expect to get tomatoes. That’s how our subconscious mind works. It doesn’t care if you want the seeds you plant to grow. As long as you water and nurture them (affirm repeatedly), they will grow.
