“Nothing ever goes right!” “Why do bad things always happen to me?” Does it ever seem as soon as the words pass your lips, things go from bad to worse? Don’t beat yourself up. We’ve all been there. But, let’s not make it a habit! You see, every time you allow your mindset to take a negative shift, you are programming yourself to not only perceive things in a pessimistic way, according to the Law of Attraction, you are also attracting more pessimistic circumstances.
How do you unshackle yourself from the weight of a negative mindset? It isn’t as simple as ending all pessimistic thoughts. You have to retrain your brain! That’s where positive affirmations come in. Affirmations interrupt negative ruminations, shifting your mindset to one of positivity, hope, and self-love. And, if you are familiar with LOA, you know a positive mentality is essential to manifesting the life and abundance you desire and are deserving of!
How do positive affirmations work?
Have you ever smelled a particular scent, like chocolate chip cookies and been flooded with memories of your family baking in the kitchen? Is there a song that overwhelms you with emotion because it reminds you of your ex? Affirmations, both positive and negative, work similarly.
For example, you are headed out on a first date, and you keeping thinking, “I will make a fool of myself,” or “Don’t make a fool of yourself.” You are programming your mind to associate first dates and meeting new people with embarrassment. On the other hand, if you are about to give a presentation at work and focus on positive thoughts such as “I am a strong communicator” or “I will confidently express myself,” you are programming your brain to associate public speaking and self-expression with confidence and self-worth.
Is it really that simple? Yes, it can be. The more you visualize your desired outcome with confidence, faith, and hope, the more likely you will change not only your inner world of thoughts and feelings you also shape your external world, manifesting a life you want to live!

The chair you are sitting on, the scents you smell, the thoughts and feelings born of your positive affirmations, your very being – all energy!
