Morning affirmations are such a powerful way to start your day and something intentional you can do to direct how your day will unfold. When you wake up, your energetic momentum has slowed overnight and you have the opportunity to set a new, fresh tone.
In this blog post, I'm going to share morning affirmations for positivity, gratitude, and I AM statements. I'll also briefly explain how and why affirmations work, as well as how to start using daily affirmations.
How affirmations work
Morning affirmations powerfully work because they rewrite your beliefs as you keep saying them. You won't believe them at first and will even feel like you're lying to yourself, but as you continue to repeat an affirmation, it will start becoming a powerful core belief.
As Abraham Hicks always says, a belief is just a thought you've thought over and over again.
A recent study published in the Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience Journal found that self-affirmation activates well-known reward centers in the brain, as well as increases activity in the medial prefrontal cortex and posterior cingulate. These areas are connected to self-related processing and act as an emotional buffer to lower states of vibration.
Affirming to yourself what you want to experience in your life helps you to step into that perspective, and when your perspective changes, your whole reality shifts.
How to start daily affirmations
My recommendation is that you start out with more general, light-hearted affirmations.
If you are making $70,000 a year, for instance, trying to create an affirmation where you say "I make a million dollars a year" is going to slow your roll of abundance than if you said something like "I'm starting to have so much more fun in life."
General statements may seem like they aren't touching on what it is you want to manifest, but they easily and quickly begin to lift your vibration, which puts you in the frequency of everything that you want.
So pick something fun, light, and easy to say every morning. Just start saying it to yourself as you awake, brush your teeth, and start your day. Don't overdo it or be robotic about it. Have fun with it!
The more fun you have, the higher of a vibrational frequency you'll be putting yourself in.
