“Your thoughts become your reality”. Have you heard this before? It’s a statement that moved me greatly. I’m now very careful of where my mind goes, and affirmations are a way of life for me – not just something I do now and again.
Why? Thoughts are powerful, they can manifest into words and eventually into actions making affirmations a great tool to help purify thoughts and focus your brain on positivity instead of negativity. The word affirmation comes from the Latin word ‘affirmare’, meaning "to make steady or strengthen."
When we affirm our dreams whether in our thoughts or verbally, we are immediately aligning our energy to this way of life - our thoughts and words become our reality!
You can practice affirmations wherever and whenever you want
I remember using them daily on my commute to and from work in order to keep calm, stay positive and to ensure the chaotic rush of London did not become part of me and linger throughout my day.
