Well I didn't for quite a while because i never believed them. You know the ones that say how beautiful and lovely I am, well I began to notice that the voice in my head would usually say something like "I don't think so" or "Ha, ha yeah sure". Now who wants to say a beautiful loving affirmation when it leaves me with a negative sour taste in my mouth?
The reality is that, that negative, sour taste is really my belief system in action and until I can change my belief about it the affirmations are really pretty useless. So I looked at some of the affirmations I wanted to use and was able to shift my belief from - yeah right I don't think so, to YES, YES, YES. So my favorite affirmation I am using to day is: I AM A MONEY MAGNET. And because of the shift everytime money comes into my life I affirm that yes I am a money magnet, it looks like this - arms in the air whooping it up that YES, I am a money magnet! Another one of my affirmations I like is: I LOVE THE CHANGES I AM MAKING IN MY LIFE and for me it is a way to acknowledge to myself that I am working or playing really and my life is improving and better every day.
Every hour on the hour an affirmation appears on my phone (I just put them as events on my phone calendar with alerts and they repeat each day) and instead of the negative belief shining forth I am saying the positive about the affirmation. I love the reminder every hour and periodically I change them around so they stay fresh and vibrant.
Another of my favorite affirmations right now is: PEOPLE ARE DRAWN TO ME AND WANT TO WORK WITH ME and everytime someone calls or reaches out to work with me I say a big YES because of the affirmation.
These affirmations keep me juiced and excited about life and I hope you can add some affirmations into your life to keep you juiced and excited!
