If you’re reading this, then you’ve started your own spiritual journey. You’re exploring all about positive thinking and you’re probably thinking now – how affirmations work best?
How do I get the most out of them? Surely there must be some secret – some trick you’re missing on.
I know – affirmations can be so confusing. And I get it – been there, done that.
You’re thinking things like, should I close my eyes, should I take a deep breath. Or if you’re a bit like me – a perfectionist – you’re trying to figure out how affirmations work best.
But let me tell you this:
There’s really no big secret into it, really.
However, if you say them the right way at the right time, you might start witnessing the major change in your life you were so hoping to see!
Follow up with me as we take a look why saying affirmations in the morning shower is the best time to say them and how you can start your own morning affirmation practice!
When is the best time to introduce new habits?
Okay, so before I answer your question, here’s a bit of science for you:
Your brain isn’t there to make you happy. Your brain is there to help you survive.
So you can’t rely only on your brain to make you happy – you have to put in a bit of conscious effort yourself.
Often times, old, negative beliefs are so ingrained in your brain that you need to put actual effort into replacing old patterns of thinking with new ones.
And yes, positive thinking takes some time, effort, and dedication – that’s your foundation to set a new habit.
Can you imagine this – our survival instincts are so strong, that our brains treat positive thinking as a completely new habit!
And what’s the best time to start practicing a new habit?
First thing in the morning.
How affirmations work best in my experience?
I do my affirmations right in the morning before my mind gets cluttered with everyday tasks. I also recommend you do the same.
I prefer to do it once I’m in the shower but you can also do it while you’re brushing your teeth or while doing morning yoga.
Here’s the morning affirmation I repeat to myself in the shower:
My life is growing bigger every day.
My life is growing BIGGER EVERY DAY.
MY LIFE IS GROWING BIGGER EVERY DAY!
Then I let myself feel joy. It’s this immense feeling of content and security that wraps itself around me and follows me throughout the day.
Because my life is growing bigger every day!
The MOST important part is THIS!
You can say your affirmations in the morning but still not witness the results you’re hoping to do.
You have to feel the emotion of the affirmation you’re saying in order for it to work its magic!
Trust me on this one – your life can be growing bigger every day, too!
