How to Affirm Correctly (Examples)

How to effectively decree something to the Universe and turn it into reality? In this article, we'll explain it in detail with examples.

What are Positive Affirmations?

Positive affirmations (or decrees) are more than mere attempts at self-suggestion. They are declarations we make about what is true and certain (or what we want to be) for ourselves.

Their purpose is to make us feel better, maintain a positive attitude toward life, and become creators of our own reality.

How Do They Work in Our Minds?

Creation always begins with an idea. Nothing in the world has appeared magically; everything has been previously thought and imagined by someone.

The same applies to our personal lives: as we think, as we visualize our lives, so will our reality and experience be.

In terms of creation, it's crucial to be mindful of our language because words are energy. When we speak, we are creating.

Being attentive to the language we use, both in our relationships with others and in our self-dialogue (internal dialogue), is essential. This is where positive affirmations come into play and the importance of knowing how to affirm correctly.

As a general rule, we must understand that our minds don't comprehend "no"; it simply eliminates it as if it doesn't exist in the sentence.

For example, if we say, "I don't want to be sick," our mind skips the "no" and retains only "want to be sick." Hence, the importance of using positive/affirmative words and sentences.

How to Affirm Correctly? Positive affirmations must have three basic elements:

  1. Be written in the first person, using the present tense and using positive/affirmative language.
  2. Have an emotional impact.
  3. Be true to you.

Regarding emotional impact: positive affirmations won't have an effect unless they are formulated in a way that generates positive feelings. We create not only with our heads but also with our hearts, and true creation occurs when we combine thought and feeling.

This is because the Law of Attraction responds to how we feel about what we say and think. Therefore, when reading the positive affirmation we've written, we'll know it's valid if it makes us feel happy, hopeful, and encouraged.

About certainty: it's essential not to have any doubts about the truth of our positive affirmations. If we doubt that it is real or possible, we are sabotaging ourselves because the energy of doubt is a negative vibration.

A good technique when starting to use positive affirmations and doubting some of them is to use phrases in their formulation like "I am on the path to attracting into my life..." or "I have decided that..." or "I am excited to think/feel that...".

So, instead of starting by stating "I have iron-like health" (if we don't believe it), we can say, "I am on the path to having iron-like health."

How Can Positive Affirmations Help Us?

  1. Having a positive attitude toward everything in life is fundamental if we want to feel calm and at peace.
  2. They help us set goals and objectives. There are times in our lives when we want something but are not sure what. When we define a positive affirmation, we reflect on what we want, clarifying our ideas.
  3. Positive affirmations help us create our reality. Remember that our thoughts are creative.
  4. Finally, positive affirmations can also help improve our health. There is an intense mind-body relationship; everything that happens in the mind manifests in the body, and everything that happens in the body reflects our way of thinking.

How to Write Your Own Positive Affirmations?

To learn how to affirm correctly, it's important to learn how to write them. Affirmations can be done silently, aloud, in writing, or even sung or recited.

Just ten minutes a day of positive affirmations can compensate for years of old mental habits. The more frequently your consciousness recalls what you tell yourself and the more positive and expansive the words and concepts you choose, the more positive the reality you create.

Always make affirmations in the "present," not the future. It's important to create them as if they already exist. Instead of saying "I will get a wonderful job," say, "I have a wonderful new job."

This acknowledges that everything is created first in the mental plane before it can manifest as an objective reality.

Affirmations are made in the most positive way possible. Affirm what you DO want, not what you DON'T want. Instead of saying "I won't oversleep again," say "I wake up with time and full of energy every morning."

In general, the more concise and straightforward affirmations are, the more effective they are. An affirmation is a clear expression that contains strong feelings.

The more feeling it has, the more intensely it is engraved in your mind. So, at this point, proceed to write down those ideas you want to embody and achieve in your life.

To find out what you want to achieve, observe and ask yourself: What do I really need in this moment of my life? What do I want to achieve? What aspects of my life cause pain, and what do I need to overcome it? What would I change in my life if I had that magic wand that can do anything? How would I like to be?

You must consider three laws to know how to affirm correctly:

  1. The affirmation must be made in the positive.
  2. The affirmation must be made in the present tense and as "already achieved."
  3. The affirmation must be made in a specific way and formulated in the first person.

Conclusions on How to Affirm Correctly

Realize that you have an opportunity to get what you demand for yourself. The success of this process is based on the extraordinary power of the written word in the depths of our unconscious. Remember that what you decide to get from life is exactly what it will give you, no more, no less.

Therefore, don't be afraid to express your "personal utopia" in the goals you're about to write and repeat every day. As you will later discover, the word-ideas that today may seem "pretentious" or even incredible will gradually become familiar and natural.

When finishing the process, the formulations you have created will not only seem entirely credible but also absolutely deserved.

Remember that, in general, people tend to think that language serves to describe reality when, in fact, it serves to create it, especially when this language is configured in writing.
