If you believe the phrase you are what you think, then life truly stems from your thoughts. But we cannot rely purely on thoughts; we must translate thoughts into words and eventually into actions in order to manifest our intentions. This means we have to be very careful with our words, choosing to speak only those which work towards our benefit and cultivate our highest good. Affirmations help purify our thoughts and restructure the dynamic of our brains so that we truly begin to think nothing is impossible.
The word affirmation comes from the Latin affirmare, originally meaning "to make steady, strengthen." Affirmations strengthen us by helping us believe in the potential of an action we desire to manifest. When we verbally affirm our dreams and goals, we are instantly empowered with a deep sense of assurance that our words will become reality.
Affirmations are proven methods of self-improvement because of their ability to rewire our brains. Much like exercise, they raise the level of feel-good hormones and push our brains to form new clusters of "positive thought" neurons. In the sequence of thought-speech-action, affirmations play an integral role by breaking patterns of negative thoughts, negative speech, and negative actions.
The art of the spoken word is critical in crafting our futures. I am a firm believer that we influence the universe word by word. When we utter a sound, we emit a sound wave into the universe. This sound wave pierces through the air and becomes a real object. No words are empty words, as every syllable we speak engages energy towards or against us. If you constantly say "I can't," the energy of your words will repel the universal force against you. But if you say "I can!" You will manifest abilities to do just that. So speak away; relinquish your fears and purge your anger, predict your own future and live up to your potential with the daily affirmations.
Words will change your life.
