AFFIRMATIONS

The use of positive affirmations is a technique to change that negative self-talk into something more positive. The goal with affirmations is to change your beliefs. Changing your beliefs will change your life. The problem with negative thoughts is that they can be self-fulfilling. The use of positive affirmations can successfully treat people with low self-esteem, depression, and other mental health conditions. Your positive attitude is the fuel for your success. Many people think that simply repeating a statement over and over again will make it true. This is unlikely. You need to apply positive healing affirmations daily to the root cause of the problem you are working on. 
Think of the positive events in your life that your mind has reminded you of. Contemplate deeply and evaluate all of these events. In doing so, try to focus and find out all the things that make the event “positive”. To do this, introspect with a few questions- What is positive about this event? Why has the positive event transpired? What you have contributed towards the positive event? What have you derived from the positivity?
Once you’re done with that, take your mind down the opposite lane, and consider some negative events in your life. Go through a similar procedure.  Find out why the events were negative. Introspect and ask yourself the following- What is negative about this event? Why has the negative event transpired? Where did the negativity stem from? What have you contributed towards the negative event? What have you derived from the event? What are your feelings about the event?
Once you’ve done this, you will find yourself in a position where you understand most (if not necessarily all) aspects of the problem, event or negativity itself. At this stage, ask yourself if you are willing to accept any part you played in contributing towards negativity. When you are ready to accept your role in the negative event, you are ready to turn the event around, and make it positive. Ask yourself how this could be turned into a positive. For some, it could be a case of learning from experience. For some others, it could be a motivating factor to spur them into action in the productive direction.
This will help change the aspect of the problem from negative to positive. At this stage, you are ready to use your affirmation. Affirmations can either be spoken or be written down. Affirmations have to be done several times a day till such time that they become a reality.
The power of affirmations also lies in their repetition. Affirmations should be formed in the present tense, as if they are already happening. When making positive affirmations, be sure that they’re positive! Here’s an example. If you want to rid yourself of some pain, you should be affirming thus: “I am free of the pain”; “My tryst with the pain is over, I allow myself to release this pain.” “I have now released the pain” as opposed to: “I have no pain.” “I feel no pain”
Another technique that can be used is the mirror technique. Stand in front of a mirror. Look yourself directly in the eyes and say your affirmation loudly. Repeat each affirmation 10 to 15 times to yourself in the mirror. This will help drive it into you sub-conscious mind. Avoid “wanting” your affirmation as it means that you don’t already have it e.g “I want a healthy body” is a wrong affirmation. “I have a perfectly healthy body” would be the right way to affirm.
 Using this powerful technology helps to improve your self- esteem, stay in recovery and improve the quality of your life.
