How to Create Your Own Affirmations? A Step-by-Step Guide to Creating Positive Statements – VISIYA

Updated: Apr 9

Affirmations are positive statements that are meant to be repeated in order to encourage self-belief and positive thinking. But for them to truly make a difference, they need to be carefully crafted. If you choose the wrong words, you may spend months repeating a verbal formula that will get you nowhere. So let's learn some rules to make your own affirmations effective and powerful.

Here are some guidelines to remember when creating your personal affirmations:

  1. Get crystal clear on your desires. Make your affirmations specific — swap out vague phrases like “I make good money” and say “My salary is $10,000 a month” instead.

  2. Use present tense wording only. The power of affirmations lies in the present tense. Don't dream about a future house, start enjoying it now. Rather than saying “I will buy a luxurious country house”, proclaim “I own a luxurious country house.”

  3. Keep it positive and vibrant. An affirmation should use words that evoke strong positive emotions. For example, use “I have a luxurious two-story mansion with a terrace and a huge swimming pool” instead of “I have my own house”.

  4. Avoid negative form. The subconscious mind skips negative words, leading to miscommunication. So, to maintain your health, affirm “I am radiating health and vitality”, instead of “I never get sick”.

  5. Don’t make them too long. Don't cram all your dreams into one affirmation — keep it simple and focused. If your affirmation is a marathon-long, you'll lose focus. Aim for effective repetition of clear, concise statements.

  6. Keep them personal. While it's noble to want better things for those around you, affirmations are a personal tool. Desires like “Daddy makes enough to support the family” or “Grandma's healthy and happy” don't work. Affirmations are about your journey and your goals.

Remember that even the best affirmations are not a magic wand. Altering deep-rooted beliefs and patterns takes time and patience, as they've been embedded in your consciousness over the years. So, if you don't see significant changes immediately after practicing positive affirmations, don't be disheartened. Don’t quit, keep going 🫶.
