What do you think about most of the time? Are your thoughts positive, negative, neutral?When something doesn't go the way you want, what is your first thought? Our thoughts are constantly running around in our minds. Sometimes we forget that we can manage our thoughts. What we focus on expands in our lives. When we learn how to shift our focus from what we don't want to what we do want, miracles happen.

Learning to use affirmations is one way to shift your focus from what you "don't" want to what you "do" want.  Affirmations are positive statements of truth and change. An affirmation can reflect how you truly feel about yourself, "I am unique." Affirmations can also help you move to where you want to be, "I relax and allow my inner spirit to guide my life."

Your subconscious mind is like a video recorder that never stops running, it picks up sounds, ideas, thoughts, and feelings. Whether you believe them or not, affirmations make an impact on your subconscious mind.  These statements help you train and focus on what you "truly" want in your life. When you realize the power that you have to manage your thoughts and emotions you move into a new understanding of how to truly engage with life.

I recommend you think, write and say affirmations to continue to impress your subconsciousmind. You can think them throughout your day and definitely focus on them whenever you find yourself feeling stressed, anxious, depressed or having feelings that are not positive. Here are a few of my favorites. Enjoy!

• I am a unique divine expression of love.
• I am available to receive more good than I have ever imagined.
• I am alive, alert, awake and enthusiastic!
• I believe my path is mine alone and I know that I am where I should be at this time, space and place.
• I relax and allow my inner spirit to guide my life.
• I design all areas of my life with ease and grace.
• I am grateful for all the teachers and lessons of my life.

When you find yourself focusing on what you don't want - try one or all of these affirmations to jumpstart your thoughts back to where you truly want to be. Remember you have the power to create the life you want to live.

    • Thanks for your post Babara,

      I believe in affirmations. What we put our thoughts behind gives it more energy and causes expansion.
      When things don’t go as planned and my initial reaction is not a positive one, I have learned to allow myself to have the feeling but then to also ask myself why it is that I am feeling the way I do.

      I had to snicker a little as I read your post because about an hour ago I was on the treadmill and was repeating to myself over and over...“I No Longer Have A Need To Delay My Good.”
      Repeating this affirmation gave me the boost I needed and it made me remember that I was doing this for my good and that it should not be a chore but an honor.
