What is an affirmation?
Affirmations are powerful statements that we usually repeat to compel us into action or a different state of mind.
Equally, they are a conscious statement we make to ourselves.
They do indeed help us with a positive, purposeful and growth orientated mindset.
As a result, affirmations have the power to help us live soul fulfilling lives.
However, alone – rarely do they rarely work.
They are powerful when we truly believe in them and take inspired action.
It is important to note whilst they are an empowering tool, they may not work for everyone.
See what works best for you as you know yourself best.
Quotes I believe that support the power of thought and in turn affirmations:
“Whether you think you can or you think you can’t, you’re right.”
“I rejoice in the knowledge that I have the power of my own mind to use in any way I choose”
“She knew the power of her mind and so programmed it for success.”
“Reality is a projection of your thoughts or the things you habitually think about.”
“As you think, so shall you become.”

How to use Affirmations to Live a Soul Fulfilling Life
- Truly believe in the affirmation. Anchor the affirmation within your body. Embody the affirmation. Feel the affirmation. If you are finding it hard to believe in the affirmation, it may help to be curious and to identify as to why you feel this way. A professional psychologist would greatly benefit in this situation.
- Repeat them. I believe repetition enables you to permeate the affirmation from your conscious mind to your unconscious mind. Repeat them out loud to yourself. Repeat them in your mind.
- Write them out repeatedly. “As a single footstep will not make a path on the earth, so a single thought will not make a pathway in the mind. To make a deep physical path, we walk again and again. To make a deep mental path, we must think over and over the kind of thoughts we wish to dominate our lives.” – Winfred Peterson
- Say them out loud and record yourself and then play them back to yourself.
- Write them on post it notes and place them anywhere to remind yourself.
- Reflect upon affirmations.
- Meditate upon them.
