My initial answer to this question is no. The reason being that people mostly attempt to use other people’s affirmations, saying them to themselves each day and seeing no results. Then they throw the concept of affirmations out the window altogether. This is when affirmations don’t work.
The reason these don’t work is because they have no energy in them – none of your energy anyway. I’m sure they worked very well for the person who wrote them, because they really meant them, they felt them and the words held their energy.
Even if your affirmations sound very similar to typical statements that you’ve heard, they will still be powerful and effective because you have written them. They have emerged from your heart, from you spirit.
This week I am focusing on an affirmation which is personal to me, about discipline. I wish to be more disciplined in my life in order to achieve my dreams. I have recognised that I am often quite relaxed with my approach to work, yet I hold many dreams that I wish to fulfill – which require work! Therefore, my affirmation for this week is:
I am courageously disciplined.
What is your personal affirmation for this week?
Some questions to help:
What would you like to overcome? What do you want more of in your life? What do you want to focus on this week? Which aspect of yourself would like to connect with? What does it feel like when you say your personal affirmation?
