What are Positive Affirmations

by Linn

Here is the definition from Wikipedia:

“Affirmations in New Thought and New Age terminology refer primarily to the practice of positive thinking and self-empowerment—fostering a belief that “a positive mental attitude supported by affirmations will achieve success in anything.””

Affirmations definition

It was Émile Coué, a French psychologist and pharmacist who introduced a popular method of psychotherapy and self-improvement based on optimistic autosuggestion.

The autosuggestion he was offering was “Every day in every way I am better and better” (French: Tous les jours à tous points de vue je vais de mieux en mieux). The phrase had to be repeated 20 times a day and especially in the beginning and at the end of the day. He claimed that patients’ conditions improved with this method.

The first affirmation

There are two different types of autosuggestions or positive affirmations: reflective and spontaneous.

Reflective affirmation is when we make a conscious effort to say it; spontaneous affirmation is when we embody the reflective one and it becomes part of our unconscious thinking.

Our aim is to repeat affirmations so many times that they become spontaneous. This is how affirmations promote positive changes.

Another way to make affirmations effective is to ensure they bypass the conscious mind. There are few ways to do this. One of them is coloring the affirmations.
