10 Powerful Second-Person Affirmations to Start Your Day Right

Good morning, my friends. Tons of projects going on at the day job and in my personal life. I haven’t been able to blog as much as I’d like to the past few weeks. Thank you stick with me.

What’s a second-person affirmation? Second-person affirmations are affirmations phrased with you rather than I. They are powerful for replacing old thoughts and programming that you received from the outside. I’ve found, over the years, that they work better than I affirmations for moving old thoughts that you received from other people out of your mind.

They also have a different vibration a certain power that’s different than I affirmations. Both are important and I recommend using both.

Here’s 10 to start your day right today.

Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you ARE awesome!

  1. You came here to face and conquer the challenges you’re facing right now.

  5. You are abundant and more so every day.
  6. You are a nexus of change in your life and in the world.
  7. You are the person you came to the planet to be.
  8. You are the reason other people still have faith in humanity.

  10. You already are everything you hope to be. You are now realizing it.

Eliminate Negative Self-Talk

They say you are what you eat and it’s true. Equally, true is you are what you think. What you think constantly – your Self-talk – is who you become. How many times a day are you thinking and even saying these limiting words and allowing them to take root in your consciousness? The first step is to notice them. The second is to eliminate or at least reduce them.

  1. I can’t…
  2. I’ll never…
  3. I’m too…
  4. I’m powerless to…
  5. I’m not as good as…
  6. I’m no good at…
  7. I’m a victim of…
  8. It’s just the way I am.
  9. I always (negative thought)…
  10. (Some outside force…often God or government) will do it for me.
  11. I’m not meant to be happy, successful, etc.

You may may hear these in your head or you may have some of your own. Reverse your limiting thoughts and turn them into your affirmations. Use the affirmations until you have banished the limiting thoughts. Just in case no one else has reminded you today, you ARE awesome!

Why Affirmation Repetition Matters

Most people involved in a personal spiritual journey or personal development get the value of affirmations. What’s often not understood is why repetition is so important to shifting your paradigms.

Our conscious and subconscious minds are both constantly filtering information about the world around us. We often use that power of the conscious mind to our benefit. It helps us find our friend in a crowd of faces or pick the best bananas at the store.

However, the subconscious mind filters without your control. It will show you the world IT expects or seeks. It’s filtering your world all day every day. It’s filtering it based on its dominant thought or mindset. If it chooses to see the negative, the obstacles, and all the problems in the world, that’s the world it presents to you.

The problem is, for the vast majority of people, that negative vision is what you’ll get unless you intervene. You see, for most the human species’ existence, identifying danger was the constant concern of the subconscious mind. That’s why it continues to be the default setting.

You may say or listen to an affirmation a few times and you’re conscious mind says, “I’ve got it.” That’s great, but your subconscious mind does not yet. If you want to change that subconscious filter, you must bombard your subconscious constantly with thoughts of your choosing to help shift its paradigm to begin showing you hope, opportunity, and the positives in the world.

One only need look at today’s headlines to see what happens when we don’t shift this process. Everywhere what divides us, limits us, prevents us from being more is the dominant thought of the popular culture.

That’s because it’s the dominant thought of an untrained collective human subconscious.

Retraining that collective subconscious is done one person at at time by feeding it with more positive thoughts, images, and ideas to help it begin selecting a better paradigm and eventually a better world for us all to live in.

Thoughts Literally Create Our Lives and Our Headlines

The message of affirmations, raising your vibration, and shifting the world is not really complex. It’s ubiquitous as the baseline of spiritual teachings from around the world. That premise is now backed by decades of scientific confirmation. As Mike Dooley says, “Thoughts become things.”

1) Our feelings become our thoughts.
2) Our thoughts become our actions.
3) Our actions become our individual lives.
4) The same is true for everyone else around us.
5) Our collective feelings, thoughts, and actions become our daily headlines.

There’s a simple valve at the beginning of that process. Most humans, for whatever reason – nature, nurture, or both – have a rather negative default setting that forms the basis of their feelings. Unguarded, that negativity passes into their thoughts and actions and becomes the world we see around us.

Meditation, prayer, affirmations are all methods for learning to guard the the thoughts by raising their vibration to something productive rather than destructive.

We are constantly telling ourselves a story about our world and ourselves. That story generally creates a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Those thoughts:

I am/I am not
I can/I can’t
I’m amazing/I’m f’d up

are constantly flowing through our minds, into our actions, and out into the world. Because it’s unconscious and mainly reactionary, unless we consciously choose to change it, our world winds up being a summation of that thinking and those actions.

People are angry and empty and they don’t even know why.

All I’m saying is two simple things:

1) You’re in control of your thoughts and they go a long way toward creating your life.
2) The more people get that and apply it, the better world we’ll collectively create.

It’s not vapid, vague, or incomprehensible. It’s backed by tons of modern science and 5000 thousand years of spiritual teaching. Anyone can apply these principles by controlling that valve between raw emotion and productive thoughts and actions that move us forward.
