Are Affirmations Enough?

Are affirmations enough?

Nope. Not if they’re just rote words you say or read or listen to.

There are two ways affirmations do their work. There is power in “subconscious” affirmations delivered subliminally or listened while you sleep. This approach requires intense repetition, but given time, it can be very effective.

For some, that conscious skeptic or cynic can interfere with affirmation acceptance and belief. Going around that negative inner voice is great way to undermine that voice at its subconscious roots.

For affirmations recited or read or listened to consciously, they will be utterly ineffective if they’re mere words to you.

They must be words that carry the fire of belief and a deep commitment to see them achieved. They must stoke emotion and determination.

The key is to figure out which strategy is most effective for you – flooding your subconscious with better thoughts or consciously “practicing” with affirmations each day.

I’ve had success with both over the years, but others succeed with one or the other.

So, what’s the answer? Are affirmations enough? Affirmations are one tool in your mindset and spiritual development toolkit. Used correctly and appropriately for you, they are a workhorse for shifting your thinking, your perspective, and your life.

Wherever you are on your journey today, you are awesome!

I am the Founder of The Affirmation Spot, author of Annuanki Awakening, and co-founder of 6 Sense Media. My latest books are the Anunnaki Awakening: Revelation (Book 1 of a trilogy) and The Power to Be You: 417 Daily Thoughts and Affirmations for Empowerment. I have written prolifically on the topics of personal development and human potential for many years. By day, I write sales training for Fortune 100 company. I began studying affirmations and positive thinking after a life-threatening illness at 25. My thirst for self-improvement led him to read the writings of Joseph Campbell, Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, and many other luminaries in the fields of mythology and motivation. Over time, I have melded these ideas into my own philosophy on self-development. I have written, recorded, and used affirmations and other tools throughout that time to improve my own life and I have a passion for helping other reach for their goals and dreams. Ray holds a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Secondary Education in Social Studies from University of Kansas. He lives in Spring Hill, Ks with his wife.
