What Affirmations Are!
In addition to traditional and advanced coaching
techniques, we will also utilize the very best of modern New Thought
techniques, including visualization, manifestation, attraction, and positive
psychology. The glittering jewels from
our treasury of personal development resources…and the backbone of Declare
An affirmation is any statement that we tell
ourselves and subscribe to be true. They
are the words and the thoughts that go on to shape our perceptions, behaviors,
actions, and results. How? Because the mind
is our processing center! Here in the
cerebral space we:
- Iron out details
- Examine all possible scenarios
- Assign judgment
- Determine if our intention is achievable
- Color it with our perceptions
After this analysis, we ultimately decide if we
are going to take action…BASED OFF OF whether or not we have decided if it will
be a success or not. So whether we think we can or we can’t…we’re right! And
it all starts before we even take one external action.
Because of the very real magnitude that these
thoughts carry into the reality of our lives, it is imperative that what we are
thinking is in alignment with what it is we want to achieve.
The internal is reflected in the external;
always! Remember: an affirmation is
anything we believe to be true and though we focus on using them in the most
positive, empowering ways, the majority of the time we unconsciously use them to
destroy, limit, and stifle our potential.
Can affirmations be used to magnify the “bad” in our lives? ABSOLUTELY! Let’s say you’re operating out of the belief
(affirmation) that “I am a disappointment,
I can’t do anything right, and I’m a failure.”
a metaphysical point of view, it’s important to know that the Universe always
says “Yes! That’s true! Let me support
that for you!” You then will be rewarded for these thoughts by the right
people coming into your life to tear you down, hostile scenarios to keep you
back, and always falling short of the finish line. More tangibly, because of this operating
belief, you will assign incredibly high standards for yourself, set yourself up
to fail, and not take the best actions to bring yourself success.
On a subconscious level, you tell yourself
that you are a failure…and both the Universe and your actions will support
At Declare Coaching, we specialize in making your
thoughts work for you instead of against you! We provide the platform to help
you grow from limiting beliefs and partner with you to not only restore your
authentic operating system to its natural state of joy and construction, but
also to institute lasting improvements you will notice, one thought at a time!
Through exploration, insight, and desire, the
former negative belief that “I am a
disappointment, I can’t do anything right, and I’m a failure” is transformed into:
more than enough to achieve everything that is in alignment with my highest
good. I am strong, I am focused, and in
all things, I know most importantly that I am divinely guided towards being
exactly where it is that I need to be!
I am a
success, not because of what I do, but because of who I am. I give thanks for this ability to create my
life and for the supported KNOWING that everything I see is a reflection of
what it is that I have attracted!
The power is mine and I love who I am. Yes! I
am a success! I am enough! I am whole! I
create a beautiful reality which is my life!
All is well…and so am I!”
Which of those beliefs do you think will bear the
most fruit? This is where the choice is
yours. Affirmations put you in the driver’s seat and are
one of the most powerful ways to shift from victim to victory. Supportive thoughts help you state quite definitively that
you are responsible for your actions and that you are deserving to receive the
results from them.
You’ll be amazed at how quickly
you see results when you commit to your new, loving, positive thoughts
with the same intensity that you gave the destructive, negative ones! Many people see results instantly; they feel
immediately more centered, calm, lighter, and confident. Perspectives start to shift, new light begins
to shine on former problems, and the life you have visualized reveals itself
For others, it may take time for the affirmations to set in because many of these core beliefs have been in place for years…if not decades! Either way, this is your journey! It all starts with the
conscious choice to experience life differently than it was before; to make new
decisions, set fresh practices in place, and always put yourself in the
advantage to win!
Affirmations are like friends who are always
there to support you, love you, nurture you, and cheer you on! They help to
reveal who you truly are meant to be at a core level! And that person is phenomenal…and
ready for you!
life opportunities happen for me in glorious ways! Fantastic new journeys are
just beginning as I take control of life and live within the divine flow of all
that is good.
This is a truly majestic
time in my life and I dedicate every action and thought to it with gratitude! The
same source energy that moves the wind, hydrates the earth, and gives light to
the sun lives through me and I remain constantly connected to this brilliant
fount of love and knowledge.
I know that
in all that is good I am continuously supported by the strength of the
Universe, surrounded by the power of the saints, and always led by the love of
the angels. This brilliant life is my right and I receive it now with thanks!
All is well...and so am I!”
And so it is!
