Affirmations: What If They’re Truly Not Working?

Yesterday we talked about our lives seeming to get worse when we use affirmations, sometimes causing us to think that affirmations don’t work. Today, let’s talk about what to do if our affirmations truly are not working.

At all.

No worries! All is not lost!

Here are two things to do with your affirmations:

~Tweak them.

Perhaps they are too far down the road. Even though we think we formulated affirmations for just a few steps ahead, perhaps those steps are bigger than we realized and, as a result, our affirmations are trying to push us to take too big of a step or a step we aren’t ready to take. Break your affirmations into little steps.

~Leave some room, some air, in them for Magic.

Perhaps the affirmations we made are too structured, too defined, and there’s no room for unexpected better things to come along. For instance, I have a friend who talks to the Universe and says what she’s striving for and gives what she thinks is the best course of action, but then she says that she’s leaving the actual “how” of it in the Universe’s hands. Sure enough, more often than not, something unexpected usually happens and it’s something she never thought of–and it’s usually better in some way. Give your affirmations some elbow room to work out!

 

Above all, keep going! Keep taking steps and affirming that everything is working out for you!

Give these two suggestions a try when you hit a rough patch with your affirmations. Let me know how they work out for you. Thanks!

Your Friend and Pep Pal,

Lauren
