Affirmations are very useful for those, who tend to speak to themselves in a reinforcing manner or rather make themselves confident. I used them too from my birth. But what significance can they induce? Are they some kinds of aid for us?
Well let’s see how they are helpful in your life through a few examples. If you are more successful in any manner with repeated inner thoughts and making yourself stronger in mind, then that is great! I’m a researcher type too partly so I’m using a few kinds of affirmations for my own confidence too.
The two sides of the same coin
Positive affirmations are existing when we are trying to help ourselves out of negative events and life situations, also to try to influence our outer life and towards those who we like and admire. The positive side can benefit many aspects of our life and can easily help to get by many times. We can surely achieve goals with enough mind work and inner change of thought patterns.
Negative affirmations are sometimes very effective in unwanted circumstances and they can fuel further bad life experiences. These types are not so good on the long run and may impact the individual’s mental health and this way his/her physical body – because thoughts are directly manifesting changes in the physical body.
A quick example here. Your relative or friend is sick or the type who can’t behave, or maybe you are unfamiliar in his/her company – this way you are just rushing your mind with thoughts which ARE reinforcing the outer world and behavour of others. You don’t need to believe that this is true, you can experiment with it any time. That person will be more negative towards you perhaps.
The whole idea comes down to this: our thoughts are influencing our life directly on an ongoing basis, so be careful what you are affirming further. It may be dangerous, not really in a relatively short time but maybe after days, weeks, months or years, some things may happen which you created with your unchecked thoughts. Of course those thoughts are not like affirmations but beliefs. The vast majority is not really aware of this basic principle and here’s planet Earth…
Use them wisely with caution
When we try to reinforce a belief deep inside personally, it may manifest sooner or later, according to the given amounts of thought energy. But the main role is above in a nutshell. Do affirmations if you think you need them or if it is natural to you. But be careful “what you wished for”. I’ve heard some people wished for car accident… that is too stupid!
Some types of people may use it the worst way to get results in their lives. It is not meaning anything extraordinary if somebody has intelligent thinking if they are so naive that what they try to achieve is not even realistic! Or maybe they are motivated on the worst side of the coin according to their fear, greed, bad behavour.
One type of affirmation is my one natural side. We tend to affirm many things in personal life, like if we don’t know about something which is true or about the mechanics but if we make repeated investigations on various sides of the same problem, we can be sure later that what we thought about something or even somebody is actually right. That is an affirmation type too. It keeps us safe from making decisions or beliefs which were maybe too naive at the first place. Beliefs, affirmations and many more are coming from the same source: thoughts. Where do thoughts are coming from? Consciousness, YOU.
I hope I could help with this.
