The Power of the Present: How Speaking Affirmations Can Change Your Life

In today’s fast-paced world, it’s easy to get caught up in the past or the future and forget about the present. But the present is where your power lies. The past is gone and the future is not yet here, so the only moment you have to make a change is now.

One way to make the most of the present moment is to practice speaking affirmations. Affirmations are positive statements that describe a desired reality. For example, if you’re trying to lose weight, you might say, “I am healthy and fit.” Or if you’re hoping to attract more money into your life, you might say, “I am abundant and prosperous.”

When you speak affirmations out loud, you are planting the seeds of change in your mind. And as you know, what you focus on expands. So by speaking affirmations, you are opening yourself up to new possibilities and setting the intention to create the life you want.

Try it for yourself and see how speaking affirmations can change your life!

1. Speaking affirmations and how they can change your life.

The spoken word is a powerful thing. What we say out loud can have a significant impact on our lives, whether we realize it or not. Speaking affirmations is one way we can harness the power of the spoken word to create positive change in our lives.

An affirmation is simply a positive statement or declaration that you repeat to yourself on a regular basis, in order to manifest a desired goal or outcome. For example, if you’re trying to lose weight, you might speaking affirmation such as “I am healthy and fit” or “I love my body”.

The idea behind affirmations is that, by repeating these statements to yourself, you will eventually believe them and start to see evidence of them in your life. This is because, as human beings, we are highly influenced by our own self-talk. What we tell ourselves on a regular basis shapes our beliefs about ourselves and the world around us.

If we tell ourselves negative things, we will start to believe them and attract negative experiences into our lives. This is known as the “self-fulfilling prophecy”. On the other hand, if we tell ourselves positive things, we will start to believe them too and attract positive experiences.

So, speaking affirmations is a way of using the power of the spoken word to change our lives for the better. It’s a way of training our brain to focus on the positive and to believe in our ability to achieve our goals.

There are many different ways you can use affirmations. You can repeat them to yourself throughout the day, write them down in a journal, or even listen to them on a recording.

The most important thing is to make sure that your affirmations are positive, specific, and in the present tense.

For example, if you’re trying to lose weight, an affirmation such as “I will lose weight” is not as effective as “I am losing weight” because it’s in the future tense.

Likewise, an affirmation such as “I want to lose weight” is not as effective as “I am losing weight” because it’s not specific enough.

It’s also important to make sure that your affirmations are positive. This is because, as we’ve seen, our brain is highly influenced by our self-talk.

If you tell yourself “I can’t lose weight“, your brain will believe this and it will be difficult to lose weight.

On the other hand, if you tell yourself “I am losing weight“, your brain will believe this and it will be easier to lose weight.

So, speaking affirmations is a powerful way to change your life for the better. By repeating positive statements to yourself on

2. Speaking affirmations can help to rewire your brain for success.

When you speak affirmations, you are essentially training your brain to focus on positive thoughts and words. This is because the brain is like a muscle - the more you use it, the stronger it gets. So, by speaking affirmations, you are strengthening the part of your brain that is responsible for positive thinking.

In addition, speaking affirmations can help to rewire your brain for success by changing the way you think about yourself and your capabilities. For example, if you are constantly telling yourself that you are not good enough, or that you will never be successful, then your brain will start to believe this. However, if you start speaking affirmations to yourself, such as “I am capable of anything I set my mind to”, then your brain will start to believe this too, and you will start to see yourself in a more positive light.

Furthermore, speaking affirmations can also help to reduce stress and anxiety. This is because when you focus on positive thoughts and words, it can help to take your mind off of whatever is causing you stress or anxiety. Additionally, it can also help to increase your motivation and confidence, as you will start to believe in yourself more.

So, speaking affirmations can help to rewire your brain for success in a number of ways. By focusing on positive thoughts and words, you can train your brain to think more positively. In addition, by speaking affirmations to yourself, you can start to change the way you think about yourself and your capabilities, which can lead to increased motivation and confidence. finally, by reducing stress and anxiety, you can create a more positive outlook on life, which can lead to even more success.

3. Examples of powerful affirmations that you can use in your own life.

In order to change your life, it is important to first change your mindset. If you want to achieve success, you need to start by believing that you can do it. One way to do this is by speaking affirmations to yourself every day.

Some examples of powerful affirmations that you can use in your own life are:

  • “I am worthy of love and respect.”
  • “I am strong and capable.”
  • “I am capable of achieving anything I set my mind to.”
  • “I am worthy of success.”
  • “I am funny and likeable.”

It is important to remember that when you are speaking these affirmations to yourself, you need to believe them. If you don’t believe them, they won’t be effective. So, take a few moments each day to close your eyes, take a deep breath, and say these affirmations to yourself with conviction.

4. How to create your own affirmations for maximum impact.

When it comes to creating affirmations that work for you, there are a few things to keep in mind. First, your affirmations should be stated in the present tense. This helps to program your mind to believe that what you are affirming is already true. Second, make sure your affirmations are positive. Avoid phrases like, “I will stop procrastinating” or “I won’t be late for work anymore”. Instead, try something like, “I am always punctual and efficient” or “I take action immediately”.

Third, keep your affirmations short and sweet. The longer they are, the more likely you are to forget them or get tripped up on the words. And finally, make sure you say your affirmations out loud. This helps to ingrain them into your subconscious mind.

So, what affirmations should you use? That depends on what you want to change in your life. If you’re looking to attract more abundance, you might say something like, “I am a magnet for money” or “I am surrounded by prosperity”. If you want to improve your relationships, you could affirm, “I am loved and supported by those around me” or “I attract healthy and fulfilling relationships into my life”.

The possibilities are endless. The important thing is that you get creative and come up with affirmations that resonate with you. When you do, you’ll be well on your way to manifesting the life of your dreams.

5. Some tips for incorporating affirmations into your daily routine.

One way to incorporate affirmations into your daily routine is to choose one or two positive statements about yourself and repeat them to yourself each day, either out loud or silently in your head. Another way is to keep a running list of affirmations somewhere you will see them often, such as on your refrigerator or bathroom mirror, and read them aloud to yourself once or twice a day. Or, you can write your affirmations down in a journal and review them daily.

It is also helpful to create an affirmation smorgasbord, where you have a variety of affirmations to choose from depending on how you are feeling that day. This could be a list of affirmations related to different areas of your life, such as your career, relationships, health, or personal growth. Or, you can have a list of affirmations that are specifically geared toward helping you overcome negative thinking or self-doubt.

When it comes to using affirmations, the key is to be consistent. Incorporate them into your daily routine in a way that works for you and make sure to choose affirmations that resonate with you. The more you repeat them, the more likely you are to believe them, and the more impact they will have on your life.

6. The importance of consistency when speaking affirmations.

The power of speaking affirmations is clear: they can change your life. But what is often less clear is why they work. In this section, we’ll explore the importance of affirmations, and how they can help you change your life for the better.

To start with, let’s consider what an affirmation actually is. An affirmation is simply a statement that you repeat to yourself, affirming something that you want to be true. For example, you might say to yourself, “I am confident and powerful.” Repeating this affirmation to yourself will help you to believe it, and eventually to become it.

The reason that affirmations work is because of the power of the present moment. When you focus on the present moment, you are able to let go of the past and the future, and to focus on the here and now. This is the first step to changing your life, because it allows you to break free from old patterns of thinking and behaving.

When you repeat an affirmation to yourself, you are putting your attention on the present moment, and on the positive things that you want to achieve. This helps to retrain your brain, and to change your thinking patterns. over time, you’ll find that your affirmations become more and more powerful, and that they have a greater impact on your life.

One of the most important things to remember about affirmations is that they should be said with conviction. In other words, you need to believe what you’re saying. If you repeat an affirmation to yourself without believing it, then it’s not going to be effective.

The best way to ensure that you believe your affirmations is to choose ones that are realistic, and that you can actually achieve. For example, if you want a new house, an affirmation such as “I am living in the house of my dreams” is much more believable than “I am going to own a 10 billion dollar home.” Similarly, if you want to improve your relationships, an affirmation such as “I am loved and respected” is more believable than “I am the most popular person in the world.”

Another important tip is to make your affirmations specific. The more specific they are, the easier it will be for you to believe them. So, instead of saying “I am successful,” try something like “I am making progress towards my goals.”

The final thing to remember about affirmations is that they REALLY should be said out loud. This helps to anchor them in your mind, and to make them more powerful.

When you keep these tips in mind, you’ll find that affirmations can be a hugely powerful tool for change. So why not start using them today, and see the difference they can make in your life?

It is clear that speaking affirmations can have a powerful impact on our lives. By speaking positive statements about ourselves, we can change our attitude and beliefs, and ultimately our behavior. When we believe in ourselves, we are more likely to take actions that will lead to our success. Therefore, speaking affirmations is a valuable tool that we can use to improve our lives.


This is such a thorough explanation of affirmations and the many benefits they can have- anytime someone needs guidance about affirmations, I’m going to try to remember to send them here to get a full overview! :blush:

Thank you, @Silverbear! :heart::sparkles:


Affirmations are something I really struggle with :sweat_smile: Without getting too deep into it, my mental health isn’t always that great and I have a really negative inner voice. My therapist wants me to do affirmations, and I’ve tried – and failed – because I always feel so silly saying them. But I know with practice and time, it gets easier and they really do work.

Thank you for the reminder, @SilverBear :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


Thank you for the great explanation of affirmations. I speak a handful every morning while making my coffee.

  • I am happy and healthy.
  • I am safe and protected.
  • I make the most of the day.
  • I love and accept myself.
  • I accept change in all forms.

I also have a handful of ones related to various topics that I will randomly say throughout the week.


Thank you @SilverBear .
It is so easy to talk down to myself and positive affirmations changes all that negativity. So much of life is intention. It is where our power comes from.

I am doing better
I am grateful for all that I am and all that I have
I am living to learn, and learning to Love

Love and Light


It’s so funny how perfect the timing for this is for me. Thank you for sharing :people_hugging:


I got these oils from this shop and they came with these affirmations. I use this every morning and speak the affirmations aloud. This is the shop if you want to get some as well. I have the aura cleanse and the cast off evil eye.


These are awesome affirmations- that was so kind of the shop to include them with your order! It’s nice that you can hang them up/leave them around to give you a positive boost each day :blush::sparkles:


@BryWisteria Yeah Thank you!I love these affirmations so much. She sends affirmations with each oil u purchase. She suggests using the affirmations in tandem with the oils bought. She also says if you prefer you can use your own affirmations. The scents are to die for! I want to order more. And a little of her oil goes such a long way. I also can’t believe how cheap her small glass bottles are to that link. Everytime I wear it and the guy who delivers truck comes in he always hugs me and smells my neck where I put the oils and tells me I smell so good. It’s always the first thing he does when he greets me. ( When we met first time I broke down about my bf. He didn’t know me, but he held me and kissed my head. The funny thing is that’s all I ever wanted from my bf but I can never get. The other day the truck driver Jerry held my hands in his for awhile after he hugged me. He’s sexy as sin too. Ugh tall green eyes. Ugh he’s a dreamboat ,plus he’s thoughtful and sweet, not afraid to love on me for the five mins we see each other once a week. I wouldn’t entertain it while in relationship if I were happy at home. But as I’m missing a lot in my relationship he’s super appealing to me. He’d be appealing either way but yeah) sorry for getting off track lmao :rofl: I’ve hardly used any even though it’s part of my morning rituals before I go. I use my affirmations, oils, and protection chants as my armor before heading out. As I need all the protection and positivity I can get from my boss and my coworker. It also helps me to keep my mind more positive.


Wow, which oil blend were you wearing? Was it an attraction blend, because if so, it sounds like it is very potent! :clap::astonished:

I used to wear a solid perfume called LUST, I bought it because I liked the smell, but it turns out the name was literal and it was an attraction blend- I’ve never had so many people up in my space as when I wore that perfume :joy: (I had to stop wearing it lol)

(If you’re ever uncomfortable or find people aren’t respecting your personal boundaries, I’d recommend switching away from attraction blends and setting stronger boundary lines- but of course, if you’re comfy and are okay with the attention, then keep on rocking it! :heart:)

That’s awesome! It sounds like you’ve built a strong armor that helps to protect and empower you :shield: :muscle: :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: Good for you, Devenne!


Actually funny thing is I haven’t used the attraction blend yet. Only the cast of evil away and aura cleanse. :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye::stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye: I do like his attention because I don’t get it at home not gonna lie. Plus he’s drop dead beautiful. Ugh. Lol. I also wear protection or cleanse plus a grounding or calming from this store as well. He started this before I wore them hahah.a. not ready to go to work. But here we go. I’m so sleepy.

There’s a few guys I work with who would love to take me out but I haven’t let go of what I have so I don’t. I’m not ready. They know that.


I have to remind myself to use these when I’m doing my breathing… (Which is several times throughout the day now…) I’m working on getting back to my regular meditation :woman_in_lotus_position: practice. Using affirmations would definitely be useful to get me back there :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:


Welcome attention is always better than unwanted space invading haha- I’m glad you’re comfy and in control! :blush:

Oh nice! Thank you for sharing the link! :heart:

It’s a lovely addition to a routine :blush: I hope you enjoy your affirmation work, Susurrus! :two_hearts:


I know this is a bit bold but I needed it personally. Maybe someone else can use it too.


These are powerful affirmations- it sounds like they came to you when you needed them! Writing them down helps to make them more tangible and also feel more achievable. You’ve got this, Devenne! :muscle: :heart: :sparkles:

Thank you for sharing them!


Thankyou for always being such a great support. I appreciate you truly. Your very special. Xo


Awwww thanks, Devenne- you’re special too! :sparkling_heart: :blush:

What’s a Coven for, if not love and support? We’re all here for one another :heart: :hugs: Many blessings!
