I used to think affirmations were cheesy and incredibly awkward. Even just the thought of speaking affirmations made me cringe. I mean am I really going to walk around telling myself “I am abundant,” or “I am worthy?” How weird is that?
And am I really going to put them on post it notes and stick them all over my house? What if someone sees? I remember my friends in college used to make fun of me for doing sh*t like that.
I’ll admit, it took some getting used to. But now as a coach and as someone who has gone through their own self-development journey, I completely understand the need for them and the power affirmations have to impact our lives for the better.
Regardless of how you may feel about affirmations now, I want you to know that they really do work. But just like anything else they take some getting used to.
But before we get into the details and I share 111 affirmations that can help you with manifesting and abundance, let’s start with the basics…
What are affirmations? And why do they work?
Affirmations are positive, present tense statements that you use repeatedly by speaking them, hearing them, or seeing them.
Initially, affirmations help focus your awareness on more positive and uplifting thoughts that serve you rather than hold you back. Over time they have the ability to break the limiting beliefs that have built up in your subconscious mind from your past life experiences and societal messages.
If you’re reading this right now and it sounds like a bunch of hocus pocus, just think about this way: every single belief that you have now was most likely told to you repeatedly as you were growing up. (Whether it was explicitly verbalized or not).
Internalizing new beliefs is no different from how you’re created belief systems in the past except for the fact that you are now choosing the beliefs and the mindset that you want to have rather than being a passive bystander by letting society, family, and friends choose them for you. Affirmations also require some more work because you actively have to change the beliefs that you already have.
Manifesting with Affirmations
I find that affirmations are particularly helpful when it comes to manifesting. Why?
The reason we have such a hard time manifesting is because we’re blocked by limiting belief systems and negative emotions that have spent decades building up in our minds. And as we know, thoughts create our reality.
Affirmations can be such a game changer and help you have more success with manifestation by creating an abundant mindset, positive, and trusting mindset. Otherwise, you can have thoughts, emotions, and beliefs that are diametrically opposed to those needed to manifest and create abundance.
These beliefs are things like, “You have to work hard for money,” “Money doesn’t grow on trees,” “I don’t deserve abundance,” or “Only evil and greedy people have money.”
You can’t possibly manifest unless you shift those deep internal beliefs. It’s impossible. That’s why so many people believe in the Law of Attraction, but don’t receive anything from it.
For example, if you have internalized the belief that you are not worthy of being rich and experiencing abundance, you’re blocking your ability to manifest. Of course, if you don’t believe you deserve something, then the universe won’t give it to you!
The more you see them, hear them, speak them, the more you shift your beliefs and ways of thinking about money so that you can create more positive and abundant circumstances in your life and finally manifest what you want.
A couple things to note:
When you are brand new to using affirmations it might feel uncomfortable at first because you’ve never done it before. Just like when you start working out or meditating again, you might feel a little uncomfortable or even awkward. But that doesn’t mean you should stop! Push through the initial stages when it feels foreign!
Secondly, affirmations can work, but they take time. Just like anything else it’s not a magic pill or magic bullet. Affirmations slowly work to shift the beliefs which are stored in your subconscious mind, not your logical mind. Surprisingly, I learned from a good friend of mind Carla, an NLP practitioner and mindset coach, that the subconscious mind is where 99% of our beliefs are stored!
So with that being said you have to give them plenty of time to actually work. You can’t expect to use affirmations for one day or one week and shatter all of the limiting beliefs you accumulated over decades of your life. If you’re going into it with that steep of an expectation, you’re going to be disappointed.
If you want to see success with affirmations and start manifesting, commit to using them and making them a part of your life. Then be patient as you await the results.
How to use affirmations
If I were to rattle off 111 abundance affirmations, it probably wouldn’t do much good unless you knew how to use them. Here are the 4 steps you should take if you want to experience a positive benefit from using affirmations.
1. Choose a few affirmations that you want to work on that will help you shift your mindset in the right direction. Don’t try to use all 111 affirmations at a time!
If you try to do all of them at once, you’re not going to put enough focus into each one and fully absorb the message. If you choose a couple affirmations that really speak to you and use them frequently, that’s when you’ll see the change. Once you have seen benefits from using those and feel ready to progress, then you can choose another 3-5 and work with those.
Pro Tip: The affirmations that you choose should be related to a belief that you need to work on. However, in order for the affirmation to work for you, it can’t feel like a lie.
Here’s an example, let’s say you suffer from a scarcity mindset and you’re trying to shift into an abundant mindset and manifest more money into your life. However, the affirmations such as “I am a money magnet,” “Money flows to me in various ways,” or “Money flows to me easily and frequently,” feel like a lie. If that’s the case, those affirmations are going to do nothing for you but reaffirm the opposite belief.
You should instead pick other affirmations that feel comfortable and true at the moment which can act as a stepping stone to start shifting your mindset in the right direction. A good place to start may be by using affirmations such as “I welcome an abundant mindset,” “I choose to live in an abundant mindset,” or “I live in an abundant universe.”
2. Incorporate affirmation into your daily life and routines.
There’s a couple ways that you can do this, but I highly suggest using a combination of them. You can put the affirmations all around your environment, speak them outloud, or write them.
For example lots of people love to put affirmations on post-it notes so they see them as they’re going about the day. In this case, you’ll want to put them in areas that you frequent and see daily. Such as on the coffee maker, the fridge, in the medicine cabinet where your morning supplements are, in your car, on your work desk, on your nightstand, etc.
Speaking them and writing them could also be incredibly helpful and possibly work better than just seeing them in your environment. By repeatedly hearing your own voice and handwriting the affirmations in a notebook, the more you internalize them. Your subconscious mind is less likely to question it and more likely to internalize the message because it’s coming directly from you.
3. Use affirmations while you’re in a relaxed state.
By using affirmations while you’re calm and relaxed, your logical mind is not taking over and the affirmations are able to work on your subconscious mind. For that reason, I find that the absolute best time to practice affirmations is when you’re winding down for the night and you’re about to fall asleep.
Or, if you really want to see some progress, record yourself speaking affirmations and play them while you sleep! This is going to work like a charm because your subconscious mind will be soaking up the affirmations without you having to do much work and without any resistance from your logical mind.
4. Give it time to work!
It’s worth repeating: affirmations take time. The only way you can really see progress through affirmations is by doing them regularly. This is not a one day fix. You’ll most likely need to use them for weeks before you start to see a shift in your mindset. But if you stick with it, that’s how you’ll see huge progress and be able to use affirmations to help you become a master manifester.
“What if someone sees my affirmations?!”
I want to address this one issue before we move on. The #1 fear that most people have about affirmations is other people finding out that they do them.
Oh my goodness! Imagine the horror of someone seeing the affirmation post it notes all over your house when they come over!
Here’s what I have to say about that: If someone is going to judge you for trying to improve yourself, your life, and your mindset, that person is not a good friend and not a positive influence in your life. So if they want to judge you, let them judge and find some new friends.
