What we say with our mouth concerning our situation is very powerful and one of the quickest ways to have what we want is to make an open declaration of what we want even to the hearing of others. God said as you have spoken in my ear, so will I do. We must be careful of what we say with our mouth because they are very potent and can always come to pass.
What so ever you say with your mouth without doubt in your heart you shall surely have.
David made a public affirmation and proclamation of what he was going to do to Goliath. David said, "this day the Lord will deliver you into my hand and I will strike you and take your head from you....1Samuel 17:46". David killed Goliath with his mouth before he actually killed him with his sling. Whatever you wish to achieve in life, you must make your mouth very active about it.
Affirmations are positive statements that describe a desired situation, and which are repeated many times, in order to impress it on the subconscious mind and trigger it into positive action. In order to ensure the effectiveness of the affirmations, they have to be repeated with attention, conviction, interest and desire. We must have faith in what we say with our mouth and we must believe our affirmation with our whole heart.
Whatever you want to do, keep it in your mind and repeat it to yourself several times until it sinks into your subconscious mind. For example, if you have an important examination before you, you can keep on saying to yourself, "I will pass this examination; I will pass all my papers". This is affirmation and it will lead you to success if you follow it up with action.
More than often, people repeat in their minds negative words and statements concerning situations and events in their lives and, consequently, bring or destroy. It is the way we use them that determines whether they are going to bring good or harmful results.
Often, people repeat negative statements in their minds, without being aware of what they are doing. Do you keep thinking and telling yourself that you cannot do something, that you are too lazy, lack inner strength or that you are going to fail? Your subconscious mind accepts as true what you keep saying, and eventually attracts corresponding events and situations into your life, irrespective of whether they are good or bad for you, so be very careful of what you allow to proceed out of your mouth.
Affirmations programme the mind in the same way commands and scripts programme a computer. The repeated words help you focus your mind on your aim, and automatically build corresponding mental images in the conscious mind, which affect the subconscious mind. The conscious mind, the mind you think with, starts this process, and then the subconscious mind takes charge. By using this process consciously and intently, you cab affect your subconscious mind and thereby transform your habits, behaviour, mental attitude and reactions, and even reshape your external life. Some times results appear quickly, but often more time is required. Depending on your goal, sometimes you might attain immediate results, and sometimes it might take days, weeks, months or more. Getting results depends on several factors, such as the time, focus, faith and feelings you invest in repeating your affirmations, on the strength of your desire, and on how big or small your goal is.
It is important to understand that repeating positive affirmations for a few minutes, and then thinking negatively the rest of the day, neutralises the effects of the positive words. You have to refuse thinking negative thoughts, if you wish to attain positive results.
HOW TO REPEAT AFFIRMATIONS
It is advisable to repeat affirmations that are not too long, as they are easier to remember. Repeat them anytime your mind is not engaged in something in particular, such as while traveling in a bus or a train, waiting in line, walking etc, but do not affirm while driving or crossing a street. You may also repeat them in special sessions of 5-10 minutes each, several times a day.
Relax any physical, emotional or mental tension while affirming. The stronger the concentration, the more faith you have in what you are doing, the more feelings you put into the act, the stronger and faster will be the results.
Choose only positive words, describing what you really want. If you desire to lose weight, do not tell yourself, "I an not fat" or "I am losing weight". These are negative statements, bringing into the mind mental images of what you do not want. Say instead, " I am getting slim" or "I have reached my right weight". Such words evoke positive images in the mind.
Always affirm in the present tense, not the future tense. Saying, "I will be rich" means that you intend to be rich one day in the indefinite future, but not now. It is more effective to say, and also feel, "I am rich now", and the subconscious mind will work to make this happen now, in the present.
The power of affirmation can help you to transform your life. By stating what you want to be true in your life, you mentally and emotionally see and feel it as true, irrespective of your current circumstances, and thereby attract it into your life.
