Using affirmations as journal prompts is a great way to reinforce positive changes you want to make in your life, goals, and big dreams. Not only can you use your journal to document these changes in your daily life, but you can also use it to practice self-reflection and positive thinking.
Journaling your affirmations is a transformative self-care practice to explore how you really feel about the changes you want to see in yourself and to anchor those changes into your daily life. This method packs a powerful one-two punch. It can also be thought of as a form of written meditation on your affirmations.
When you write down your affirmations, you’re able to capture them in a tangible way that is often easier to embrace. Conversely, if you find yourself emotionally rejecting an affirmation you may have uncovered a block that you were completely unaware of it. It’s then completely up to you to consciously decide whether or not you want to work on releasing that block.
Why use affirmations?
There are many benefits to using affirmations. First, affirmations can help you focus on your goals and keep them in the front of your mind throughout the day. This can help you stay motivated to achieve your goals more easily. Second, affirmations can help you feel more positive and optimistic, which can improve your mood and outlook on life. Another often overlooked benefit of affirmations is how useful they are in helping you become more self-aware.
Affirmations help to reprogram the subconscious mind and can be an effective tool for achieving goals. They can also help to release negative thoughts and emotions that may be holding you back.
The use of positive affirmations can help you overcome fear, self-doubt, and self-sabotage. Positive affirmations can help you face the world with confidence in who you are and what you can do.
How long does it take for affirmations to work?
There is no one answer to this question as affirmations can work in a variety of ways, and the time it takes for them to work will depend on each individual. Some people may start to see results after using affirmations for just a few days, while others may need to keep using them for weeks or even months before they notice a change. What's important is to be patient and consistent with using affirmations, and to focus on affirming positive things about yourself and your life. You should also pay attention to how the affirmations make you feel. If they make you anxious, envious, or hopeless then you are just reaffirming more of that feeling. An affirmation that is uniquely suited to you should make you feel happy, hopeful, or generally positive.
Positive affirmations are not meant to suggest that you ignore the challenges in your life or the world around you. It's impossible for you to move past difficult moments without first acknowledging your honest feelings. By repeating affirmations, allow yourself to acknowledge your emotions at the same time as you are stating your desire for something different.
What's the best way to pick an affirmation?
The best way to pick a positive affirmation is to choose one that is relevant to your goals and that resonates with you. Affirmations that are positive and realistic, such as "I can do this" rather than "I am perfect." are usually more effective because they are less likely to activate the logical self-talk that screams at you that “perfect is not real”. In other words, choose a stretch goal, not something that feels impossible.
If your “big dream” affirmation just doesn’t feel right then you could start with something simpler such as an affirmation to get you ready to receive more of what you want in life. For example, “I’m willing to explore the possibility of receiving more of what I want in life”.
To get the most out of these positive affirmations, you should believe that you can achieve your goals and be willing to work for them. Ideally, affirmations should be repeated regularly, preferably several times a day.
