We talk to ourselves silently all the time. Whether we like to admit it or not, a lot of that self talk is negative and critical rather than positive.
This is due to our brain’s “negativity bias”. We are more likely to be aware and be sensitive of a negative situation than a positive one. One insult may linger longer in our minds than ten compliments. The “negativity bias” is something that we inherited from our ancestors and has helped the human race survive. Being safe and protected was more important for our survival than appreciating the blue sky.

Positive #affirmations are a powerful way of maintaining a positive internal dialogue and in creating the life we want.
What are Affirmations?
#Affirmations are everything we repeatedly say to ourselves whether in our mind or out loud.
To “affirm” means to declare or state that which you wish to be true. We are constantly “affirming” whether we know it or not.
Positive affirmations are commands that we are consciously deciding on instead of letting outdated negative beliefs run our program. They can help us replace our old negative beliefs with new positive, ones.
Affirmations are the new seeds you are planting in the soil of your subconscious mind. They are like commands to the subconscious mind.
Remember when we were kids, we learned the alphabets or times tables through repetition. Now we say them without even thinking. In fact we have learned everything through repetition. By repetition, our brain strengthens its connections every time. Repetition of a thought strengthens our neural path ways. The same principle applies when affirming new thoughts and beliefs.
The subconscious mind accepts orders that are presented to it over and over again. Repetition is the key. Whenever you get a chance, soak your mind with these powerful affirmations. Repeat it either aloud or mentally. Do it with passion. Remind yourself of your true power. Remind yourself you deserve an abundant life. Be the powerful creator you were born to be.
