“An affirmation is a strong, positive statement that something is already so.”

– Shakti Gawain

The Affirmation tool is an amazing transformation tool, and it is so easy. I like to make it into a little game to have fun and enjoy my affirmations. Sometimes I sing them into my hairbrush as I get ready for the day. So enjoy this fun, easy and transformational tool.

The beginning of each week, so every Monday is going to be our affirmation day for the week.

Affirmations are a wonderful tool to shift how you feel about yourself. The power of an affirmation is that you chose a positive statement and say it every day to yourself over and over. You connect to yourself from your heart and feel yourself believing the words that you are speaking, the sentence or the idea. When you say the same thing over and over you begin to let go of resistance that you hold to believing the truth in the statement. Once you begin to believe what you are saying, you then feel what you are saying and then what you are saying becomes true for you. That is why you choose one focus affirmation per week, and for the entire week that is the focus sentence you tell yourself.

I suggest writing your affirmation on a sticky note in a colored pen that calls to you, or in a handwriting that is pleasing. Then stick that affirmation on the mirror in your bathroom where you get ready in the morning and in the evening. That way you see your affirmation every morning when you start your day and repeat that affirmation to yourself, trying to feel the connection to the words and emotion that go with your statement. Say your affirmation at least ten times, out loud, to yourself every morning as you begin your day. When you are getting ready for bed in the evening repeat the same process, and say your affirmation out loud, to yourself ten times. If you feel open to it, say your affirmation to yourself during the day as much as you would like.

By the end of the week you should have shed your resistance and feel aligned with your affirmation. The more affirmations you do the easier it becomes to be open to feeling your affirmation.

This week, to start our week off, pick one quality that love about yourself. Take a moment to sit with different thoughts and work your way through until you find the quality that feels the best to you. Allow yourself to feel the emotions that go with each quality and chose the quality that that the emotions aligns with the most.

Now, on your paper write your affirmation;

I LOVE _________________ ABOUT MYSELF. (fill in the blank with your quality)

Now, for the entire week commit to working with this affirmation every morning and every evening. The result by the end of the week will be a greater appreciation and love for yourself. This is your little happy sentence as well if you start to feel you need an emotional pick me up just repeat your affirmation to yourself until you start to feel the release in your body.

Have a great week with your affirmations!! I would love to hear some of your affirmation posts if you are willing to share with us. You can share them here on the website blog or on our facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/theridechallenge
