Check Out This Mind Blowing Affirmations Definition!Sep 28, 2021
Which affirmations definition are you looking for? The standard definition of affirmations, or the mind blowing, life changing, holy cow, why hasn’t someone mentioned this to me before affirmations definition?
Never fear, I’m going to give you both. You’re welcome :)
This is WHY I’m so adamant about sharing all I know about affirmations. They freakin’ work!
Two years ago, I was a stay at home mom to two kids under two. My husband hated his job. I worried about money, like, a lot! And I was constantly afraid my husband would lose his job.
I had been kicking around the idea of publishing a book for years, and finally I decided to go for it. But, here’s the thing. I’ve quit pretty much everything I’ve ever started, my whole life. No matter how pumped up and excited I was at the beginning, eventually, I would give up somewhere in the middle, before I got to the end.
I knew going into this book publishing thing I’d have to do something different. So, I started doing affirmations. And three months later, I had a published book. And, here’s the thing, because of my affirmations, a year later, I had an Amazon number one bestseller with over 1,000 five star reviews.
But, if I had stuck to the standard affirmations definition, I HIGHLY doubt I would have had this wild, magical success.
To understand the mind blowing affirmations definition, we’d better start with the basics.
According to dictionary.com, an affirmations definition is “the assertion that something exists or is true” OR “a statement or proposition that is declared to be true.”
Wowza…that’s a mouthful! But what does it actually mean?
Let’s break it down.
You’re affirming to yourself all day long, every single day.
If you say, “Life is hard”, “Jobs aren’t supposed to be fun”, “Money doesn’t grow on trees” or “all the good ones are taken”, you’re affirming those things to be true. And so, because of how our brains actually work – your subconscious mind is finding more things in your environment to prove to you what you think (or affirm to yourself) is true.
You see, our brains are so darn smart – like infinity smarter than computers – and so they take in all the stimuli in your environment, but your subconscious will only bring to your conscious attention the things in your environment that prove you’re right.
Here’s an example.
Not too long ago, I had written a note on a piece of paper and I was looking everywhere for it. I knew I had left it on top of my desk, but it wasn’t there. I really, really, really needed this note. I started to panic and soon I was saying, “It’s gone! What am I going to do?” I threw everything off the desk and went through it. No note. I looked in all the drawers, nooks and crannies. Nothing. Nada. Zip. Zilch.
I accused my husband of misplacing it, to which he gave me a bit of a “You’re acting crazy look” that I promptly ignored as I tore the rest of the office apart. I looked under the desk. Behind the desk. On the sides of the desk. Everywhere. I even lifted up the computer monitor and looked underneath it.
Finally, I gave up. I walked into the kitchen and poured myself a glass of water. I took a deep breath. And then I heard a voice in my head, telling me to decide it was easy to find the note.
I started repeating, over and over, “It’s so easy to find the note.”
A minute later, I walked back into the office, and as soon as I stepped over the threshold, I saw the note peeking out at me. It was on the side of the computer monitor.
How had I missed it? My subconscious mind hid it from me, because I was affirming that it was hard to find. As soon as I decided it was easy to find, my subconscious mind illuminated the note for me.
If you frequently lose something, like your house keys or your phone, I bet it’s because you define yourself as someone who always loses that thing. You affirm it to be true, and your subconscious helps prove it to you.
Getting back to the affirmations definition, even though we’re affirming all the time, most of us are affirming things we don’t actually want to happen. The trick to doing affirmations is to start consciously choosing statements that affirm that what we want to happen is happening. Then, we get to watch and experience as our subconscious proves our dreams to be true.
Statements like “Everyone loves me” or “I am brave” can transform someone with anxiety into someone with confidence. And the list of what you affirm is limitless. You can affirm you’re a millionaire. You can affirm that you marry a supermodel. And as long as you keep doing the affirmations, your subconscious will go to work to prove it to be true.
Pretty cool, right!?
The awesome thing is, it’s not just a cool idea. It actually works.
Like really, really works. If it didn’t, there’s no way I’d have a bestselling book with thousands of reviews.
Before I started doing affirmations, I was sooo full of doubt. I was afraid of my own shadow (practically). My eyes used to water every time I walked into Target because my social anxiety was so high.
Now, I tell people we are all God and we are all one. I tell them I channel God and they can too. I live my truth. I’m not afraid anymore. I’m not full of doubt. And the number one thing I did to get to this place was affirmations.
But, like I mentioned earlier, it wasn’t the standard affirmations definition that made me a bestseller or made me brave enough to go on radio and podcasts and talk to strangers about my book, One Truth, One Law.
It was this secret definition of affirmations, that I channeled from God: affirmations are the blueprint of your creation.
Lol. Just kidding. I know it’s probably not a boom yet, but it will be. Stick with me.
When you’re trying to make a change in your life for the better, there are usually a lot of doubts and fears that pop into your mind. Ideas like:
· “I’m not good enough.”
· “Everyone will think I’m crazy.”
· “I don’t know enough.”
· “Just one more piece of cake. I’ll start fresh tomorrow.”
· “That’s never worked for me before.”
· “I don’t have enough money.”
· “I’m too old / too young.”
· “I don’t have enough time.”
Sound familiar? Here you are trying to create a change in your life, but you are feeding your super-computer brain affirmations that will find evidence that you can’t make the change!
This is the blueprint you are creating, just like when an architect creates a blueprint for a house. Imagine if the architect created a blueprint full of doubts and fears, that said things like, “I never build safe houses.” “I don’t know enough to do this.” “People will hate this house; no one will buy it.” Is that architect likely to build the blueprint for an amazing, safe building? Probably not.
And it’s the same with you trying to make a major change.
You have to build the right blueprint in your mind, before you take your idea, or creation out of your mind and into the physical world for you to experience.
So before you get started making the change or going after a dream, get out a notebook or piece of paper and write out your blueprint.
If you want to lose 30 pounds, your blueprint might be made up of affirmations that look something like this:
· I love eating healthy food.
· It’s so easy to take care of my body.
· I am my ideal weight and it feels great!
Then when those doubts and fears pop up, and they will – if you’re trying to make a change – grab your blueprint and repeat those sentences over and over to yourself. You’ll LOVE the difference it makes!
Comment below and let me know what change you’re going to create with your affirmations.
