The Spoken Word/Affirmations As a Magickal Tool~

Our minds accept as truth the critical statements we tell ourselves, but it can also accept our positive affirmations.

The words we speak and think hold great sway over the kind of life we create for ourselves. Many people live their lives plagued by negative thoughts and never even realized this. They tell themselves and others that they are doomed to fail, not good enough, or not worthy of love, yet they are amazed when their reality starts reflecting these words. Just as the subconscious mind accepts as truth the critical statements we tell ourselves, however, it is also equipped to instantly accept the veracity of our affirmations.

Affirmations are statements chosen and spoken consciously. Once they enter our realm of consciousness, they also enter our subconscious mind where they have power to change our lives. The affirmations you create should be specific, not too long, worded positively, formed in complete sentences, and spoken in the present tense as if what you are affirming is already true. It is a good idea to repeat your affirmations daily. You may want to tell yourself that you deserve to be happy or that you are in control of your destiny. Or, you may want to focus on a particular goal, such as attracting new friends. Rather than telling yourself you want to be well-liked, say, "I am well-liked." Your subconscious mind will pick up on these positive messages, and you will begin to live your life as if what you are affirming already has happened. Soon, your reality will begin to reflect your affirmations. If you find that you are thwarting yourself with negative thinking, try repeating your affirmations several times a day. Write your affirmations down and say them aloud. Allow your conviction to grow stronger each time you say your affirmations, and your negativity will be overridden by your motivation and positive thoughts.

Affirmations are a powerful tool for creating our desired reality. We consciously and subconsciously invite opportunity into our lives, when we say affirmations. Trust in the power of your affirmations, and you will very quickly create what you have already stated to be true.

"The words we speak and think hold great sway over the kind of life we create for ourselves."
How absolutlely positively true! I must have positive thoughts to have positive results. I am not a victim. I have the blessings of the Lady and the Lord and with their guidance I am here to learn all that I am and can be.
Blessed Be

Post Affirmations

I use to look at myself in the mirror and say the Affirmations there sometimes. Then I can tell them directly to myself. If I feel that I am not convinced of what i want to say to myself, I say the words over again until I get the right feeling for the affirmations.
