Ever wanted to write affirmations that completely encapsulated exactly what you ever dreamt? Affirmations which would have a profound effect on your mind, body and soul? Well, you can. As an affirmation writer, I am going to share with you a few of my well-kept secrets about writing affirmations.
Ready to Write Affirmations That Suit You Perfectly?
Affirmations are powerful tools which can help you to make significant positive changes in your life. Many people find using pre-designed and printable affirmation cards ideal for what they want to achieve. But if it is something I’ve learnt over the years, many doesn’t mean all. Sometimes you just want to do something different and that’s where my latest product, a customisable affirmation card set, fits perfectly into play.
But to use these, you’ll need to write affirmations yourself. Here are a few of my tips on doing so:
- Use the words ‘I am’ to personalise your affirmations
- Write them about future events and goals
- Use the present tense
- Short and specific affirmations are best
- Affirm want you want, not what you don’t want
- Use motivating verbs or adjectives
- Keep them believable
- Reflect your true priorities
- Write with passion and feeling
Of course, having fun and being gentle on yourself while writing affirmations are two key things I also feel are very important. Having fun because you’re doing something special for yourself which is worthwhile and can bring you great rewards. Being gentle because writing affirmations can be challenging and it’s ok if you can’t think of any to write at the moment.
Using Your New Affirmations
Once written, an affirmation should never be static. Feel free to adjust it as required to meet your ever-changing needs and desires. Daily use of your affirmations by saying them out loud and referring to a written version throughout the day can help increase their effectiveness. Other suggestions in our article How to Make Affirmations Work More Effectively for You include:
- Using visualisation to help you picture how you will feel, what you will do and what it will look like when your affirmation is realised.
- Using fewer affirmations is best as then you can directly focus your attention, rather than spreading yourself too thinly.
- Believe in your affirmations, which as you have written believable ones, we know you’ll ace this!
