The Importance of MANIFESTING Your Affirmations

DISCLAIMER: My blogs WILL have typos. Once I write about an experience, I leave it where it is. I don’t want to look back at them or relive them, so once I write, I don’t proofread. Sorry, not sorry. Either way, take what you need and leave what you don’t.

I am very big on the use of affirmations. Just in case you don't know what affirmations are, let me give you a quick run down before I dive into this post. Affirmations are kind, positive phrases that you generally tell yourself. Affirmations help to counteract negative thoughts we have. Affirmations help a positive tone for the day or to calm your mind before you go to bed. Affirmations are you telling yourself what you are and what you want from live or from yourself. Examples of some affirmations are:

I am deserving of healthy love.

I am full of abundance.

I am worthy of kindness.

I am beauty.

Typically, affirmations start as I AM statements, especially for some beginner affirmations users, but not always. My favorite general affirmations are: I am Deserving, I am Worthy, I am Enough (If you want to read more about affirmations or see more examples, find me on instagram @findingjaymee)!

So, let's talk about manifesting. It is one thing to SAY or to THINK kind and nice things about who you are and what you want. Because, yes, you are deserving and worthy and enough! However, it is highly important that we put action into these affirmations. It is important that we talk the talk and walk the walk, so to speak. Manifesting is an actionable step. It's putting the time and work into those things that you say you are and into those things that you say you want. Let me give you a personal example:

I started to tell myself that I was worthy of positive, productive, and healthy love (I have my own version of what that is). But, I was allowing myself to accept less than what I deserved in my relationship, my friendships, and even at work. I told myself nice things, but I allowed outside situations that I put myself in to make me feel nasty. The affirmation, without actual action and change from me, didn't really do much in the long run.

Some of you may tell yourself you deserve better...that you financial freedom flows through you...that you are enough as you are. All these things are true, but what are you doing to make those affirmations stick? Are you seeking a better job, or setting boundaries in your relationships? Are you planning financially and investing in your future? Are you taking care of your body, your temple?

I will write a post later about HOW to manifest certain things in your life. But for now, think about your affirmations and small, daily things you can do to manifest them for yourself.

Until Next time,
