Affirmations are statements written in a certain way that help you reinstate a fact you want to establish about yourself or your life by stating it in a repetitive manner by either speaking or writing it down.
Positive affirmations are a highly effective tool and are even more powerful when you write your own. Affirmations come to the rescue when you feel stuck in a certain negative thought pattern or are facing a mental block you want to get out of since they directly work on your subconscious mind and bring about a change in your thinking.
Affirmations are at the heart of Law of Attraction practice to manifest any positive change you want to bring in yourself and your life. When we write positive, uplifting, and encouraging statements, we are bound to feel happier, more optimistic, and secure in our relationships with ourselves and others.
What Is An Affirmation Letter
An affirmation letter is an encouraging letter you write by yourself for yourself or others. It’s a way of appreciating and encouraging the qualities you want to see within yourself and others. An affirmation letter is also a way of expressing gratitude for all the good you have in your life.
Writing an affirmation letter helps encourage self-love and improves your sense of self-worth bringing in a good positive change in your thinking and perspective.
Affirmation Letter Dos And Dont’s
Although you can write generic affirmation statements it’s always better to be more specific. Being specific in your affirmation letter gives it a stronger direction when trying to reinforce the affirmation in your mind. Avoid unclear hazy words such as I can, maybe.
Use positive words
Affirmations have to be written in a positive tone and any words with a negative undertone or connotation such as can’t, don’t should be avoided. When you write in a positive tone it automatically uplifts your mood and sets the right direction to bring amazing results.
Write in the present tense
The Law of Attraction tells you to imagine your need as already fulfilled in your mind in order to manifest it into your reality. The same principle applies while writing affirmations. By writing the affirmation letter in the present tense you create a picture in your head of your wishes as already being fulfilled thus paving way for the universe to manifest them.
Include the emotions you want to feel
Include emotions in your affirmation letter by actually feeling the emotions while writing the affirmation letter and also make sure to express your emotions with words such as ‘I feel so excited’, ‘I am so overjoyed’.
Adding your own name and the names of the people in your affirmation letter will make it more concrete and work as a stamp on the letter adding more value to it.
Write by hand
Writing by hand adds more value to the affirmations by adding a personal touch and creating a bond. Keep a special journal/Diary for writing your affirmations.
It’s recommended to express your gratitude by adding a thank you at the beginning or end of your affirmation letter. Practicing an attitude of gratitude brings in positivity and aids in the manifestation process.
Write in the future tense
The Law of Attraction doesn’t work in linear time hence past and future do not exist, what exists is only present that is now. If you write in future tense that becomes more like wishful thinking and not an affirmation.Requesting/Asking for something
Affirmations are meant to make you feel positive and happy. When you request or ask for something it creates a mental thought of not having it or lacking it in your life hence it’s better to avoid asking for something but rather affirm as if you have already received it by expressing your thanks and gratitude for it.Using Negative words
Words with negative undertones such as can’t and don’t should be avoided in an affirmation letter as they create a negative picture in the subconscious mind. What you feel while writing is as much important as the words you are writing. So choose your words wisely.
