Affirmations, a Powerful Tool

Everyone absorbs information differently. Click the above to listen rather than read the below.

Affirmations seem hokey, right? 

But guess what, they work. And I can say this to you because they have created big shifts in my life and my clients too. 

But… how do they work? 

When you have identified the vision you have for the next stage of your life, there will likely be parts of you and your past that will not get you there. Your brain likes to cling to the past, it’s what it does to ensure you survive (and can outpace being attacked by lions). It also likes to continue to bring in situations that prove it’s right. Totally annoying, I know. 

Affirmations rewire your brain. They help you to see possibility and live in that possibility for a time. The coolest part about your brain is that it thinks it’s real because it doesn’t know the difference between real and imagined. 

This is why when people want to lose weight and they continuously berate themselves for the weight they’re holding that they actually either yo-yo or just can’t feel comfortable in their skin, no matter what they try. Because their brain only sees the options that make what they tell themselves true. They can switch this with positive affirmations like: I love how light and agile I feel or I am grateful for how empowered I feel in my body. 

The new inner dialog will impact what you see and how you act. Berate yourself? You’ll likely skip the gym and mindlessly eat. Use positive affirmations? Maybe you’ll finally sign up for the pilates class or a friend will ask you, again, to walk with them everyday, and you’ll finally say yes. 

In this affirmation pictured, if you always feel like there is no end in sight, that the confusion and darkness will always be there, that is what you will see. But when you switch to believing there is always a light at the end of the tunnel, you will start to see options and solutions that were out of your line of sight before. 

The trick with affirmations is that they must be done consistently. Every day or multiple times a day. This consistency is what rewires the brain and begins to shift your life in the direction of your dreams.
