Positive Affirmations To Live By

In our latest blog, we take a look at what these positive beliefs entail, provide examples of them and provide spiritual guidance on how to create your own.

Words and phrases have the power to change the world, uplift us when dealing with negative thought patterns and put us in the right frame of mind. Especially when feeling nervous and stressed - perhaps about a big opportunity at work, a change of location or finding the strength to do something unexpected - positive affirmations can help remind you of how strong you truly are and how you have everything you need to take that next step. In other words, you’ve got the power to change your life for the better, and you can handle any challenge that comes your way. In our latest blog, we take a look at what these positive beliefs entail, provide examples of them and provide spiritual guidance on how to create your own.

What Are Positive Affirmations & How Do They Work?

Affirmations are positive sayings or statements that can help you to confront and challenge self-sabotaging behaviour and negative thinking. When repeated and you believe in them, positive affirmations can lead to great changes in your life outlook, and the confidence you feel in yourself. You may let the negative thoughts take over and consider affirmations as wishful thinking. But try thinking about it this way: Many of us do repetitive exercises at the gym to boost our physical health. Affirmations are just like these exercises, but for our mind and outlook. By repeating these positive affirmations, we can alter our thoughts, which can impact us greatly and help us to go forward in life with clarity and happiness.

There’s even pretty strong evidence that affirmations can impact various areas of our lives. For example, according to Kang, S.K. et al. (2015), spending a couple of minutes thinking about your best qualities prior to a high-pressure meeting can help to relax you, calm your nerves, boost your confidence, and greatly improve your chances of the desired outcome. What’s more, self-affirmation can also help with stress. In a study conducted by Cresswell, J.D. et al. (2013), a simple affirmation exercise enhanced the problem-solving abilities of "chronically stressed" subjects to the same level as those with considerably lower stress levels.

You can also utilise these positive statements before situations or events where you’d like a positive change to take place - for example:

Boosting productivity to ensure you put your best foot forward with your projects.

Overcoming a bad habit that isn’t serving you, so that you have the strength to continue on a better path.

Improving your self-esteem before a date with someone you truly care about and who you want to make a good impression on.

Helping you to control any feelings of stress, anger or frustration when dealing with toxic people.

What’s more, affirmations can be more effective when you pair them with other positive thoughts and goal-setting techniques. Visualisation is a great tool for this, as is identifying the success you’d like to see in your life, and stating terms and phrases that will motivate you to achieve them.

Positive Affirmations, Positive Statements & Core Values For Everyday Life

We asked our telephone psychic readers to tell us some of their favourite affirmations, and what follows are some great ones:

I am the architect of my own life, and only I build its foundation and choose its contents.

I am full of energy and overflowing with happiness. I can do this.

I am above negative thoughts, behaviours and actions. I will rise above any toxicity and be true to myself.

I am grateful for all the talents I have, that I will focus on the dreams I wish to make come true and will utilise them in every way that I can.

I am strong enough to move on from past hurt and those who have harmed me, and will detach myself from them gracefully and move forward from my life and allow positivity to flow.

I can always be the bigger person, and let compassion wash away any anger and replace it with genuine and caring love for my fellow human beings.

I am guided in every step by the Spirit who leads me towards what I must know and do, and provides wisdom and spiritual guidance that can help me to end.

Happiness is a choice I must choose. I base my happiness on my own achievements and the blessings I've been given, and should always know how fortunate I am to have received them.

I am brave, beautiful and courageous, and my thoughts and opinions are no less important than anyone else’s. I will speak my truth and stand up for what I believe in, and never let others put me down. I deserve to be treated with the same respect I show others.

I radiate positivity, love and understanding and people like to be in my company. Though there may be obstacles along the way, my path is carved out toward greatness and I will reach it as I move toward my goals.

How To Write Your Own Affirmations & Enhance Your Daily Routine

If you’d like to create a positive affirmation of your own, then our telephone psychic readers here at Psychic Sofa have suggested the following steps:

Consider the areas of your life you’d like to change.

Write down a couple of areas or behaviors that you’d like to improve on or change, ensuring that they align with your core beliefs and the values that mean the most to you. This way, you’ll be more motivated and determined to make them a reality.

Ensure that your affirmation is credible and achievable, and add some self-confidence to the mix. You are far stronger than you give yourself credit for, and you have talents that many would love to have themselves.

If negative thoughts ever take over, create an affirmation that contradicts them and write it in the present tense, so that when you say it aloud, it becomes more actionable. For example, if you’re nervous about a big presentation at work, write down and then state: ‘’I am talented, well-prepared and know my stuff better than anyone, and I can give a great presentation.’’

And most importantly, say it with confidence and feeling. Positive affirmations can be far more effective and powerful when they carry emotional weight. You must want this change to happen, and be stating phrases that are truly meaningful to you.

write your own

There’s no stopping you when you believe in yourself and become the change you want to see in the world. We all just need that little confidence boost sometimes and reminders of how capable we are, and all we want to achieve. Daily affirmations can enhance our well-being, and abilities in all areas of our lives - regardless of whether that’s our work, love life or how we deal with social situations. Combining this with spiritual guidance can further enhance your confidence, helping you determine the path that’s right for you, and then align your positive statements with life goals.
