The word 'affirmation' can be described in many different ways.
Affirmation can mean;
The process of affirming something
Emotional support or encouragement
Every thought you think and every word you speak
A statement said with confidence about a perceived truth
Being in conscious control of your thoughts
If I think about an affirmation being "every thought you think and every word you speak" the amount of strength and power our words hold becomes magnificent! If we constantly feed ourselves negative thoughts instead of encouragement and emotional support, we will begin to perceive that as truth. This can be damaging to our self esteem, confidence and our ability to feel, give and receive love. Which can have ripple effects into our relationships, friendships, family, work life and onwards to affecting our physical and mental health & wellbeing.
Affirmations can be a powerful tool to help change your mood, state of mind, and manifest the change you desire in your life. - Ronald Alexander Ph.D. Mr Alexander wrote a wonderful article on creating your own individual mantra here
