The Power of Positive Thinking

Do you tend to dwell on the negatives in life? Perhaps you’ve got into the habit of always fearing the worst? If so, it’s time to get in control of your fears and turn your thoughts in to positive ones. Doing this is much simpler than it sounds because you can, literally, think yourself happy; by using the power of positive affirmations, you can influence real events and improve your life. Incorporate the simple spiritual technique of affirmations into your life to find future success and happiness.

What are affirmations?

An affirmation is a simple, short statement of positive intent. It describes an emotion, feeling, action, or outcome that is beneficial for you. Affirmations are spoken or written in the present tense; they are personal and they are always positive.

For example: ‘I am happy’, or, ‘I am successful’

The idea is that the more you say and write down your affirmations, the more they get impressed into your subconscious, so your desire becomes your reality.

The embedding in your subconscious of a positive desire may lead you to believe this desire is more achievable, which means you are more likely to take action to make your dream a physical reality. In other words, once you strongly believe in something you are more than halfway there to making it real.

Remove negativity

Most people are so used to affirming self doubt and fear in their everyday life that they find positive affirmations a difficult concept to grasp. We are all used to being self depreciating – it’s part of the British sense of humour. But constantly repeating the idea that you aren’t good enough or you can’t achieve something can be very damaging, as we begin to believe it. So your subconscious mind accepts these self imposed limitations as truths. Some spiritual teachers believe words carry energy; so negative statements will attract negativity to you. But if you use affirmations, then the positive energy of these statements will influence your life.

When you find yourself slipping into negative thoughts, such as ‘I can’t cope’; ‘I am not good enough’; ‘I feel unhappy’, or, ‘I will not succeed’; stop this thought pattern by replacing it with a positive affirmation. Repeating positive ideas will focus your mind on what you want to achieve and help you to feel it is attainable.

Pick positive words

Choose your affirmation words carefully. You should ensure the phrase you are repeating is totally positive without even a hint of doubt. For example: ‘I am not failing’ or ‘my relationship is getting better’

Although these phrases point towards the positive, they still dwell on negatives. So swap them for: ‘I am successful’ or ‘my relationship is loving’.

How to use Affirmations

1) Think about what aspects of your life you’d like to improve. Pick an affirmation that is meaningful to you.

2) Repeat you affirmations as often as you can throughout the day. For example, while you are travelling on a train or bus, while you are queuing in a shop or while you are walking to the office.

3) Relax and be calm as you repeat the phrases. Affirmations are a form of meditation and you should think of saying them as a spiritual practice not just a string of words.

4) Don’t just run quickly through the phrases in your mind – you need to think deeply about the meaning of the phrases: wanting and believing that they are true for you.

5) Set aside ten minutes per day to write your affirmations down. Record them in an affirmation diary. Write slowly and consider every word.

Choose your affirmation

Pick three affirmations from the list that resonate with you. Or even better, make up your own personalised affirmation. Repeat it every day using the technique detailed above. Really believe in what you are saying and watch your positivity levels increase!

*I can create a positive future

    5* review for April! Just had a FB Messenger reading done by April and I can honestly say it was the best reading I've ever had! She knew so much about my life it was like she was by my side the whole time! She has really made me see myself in a whole new light and I can't thank her enough for that! The best bit about April's reading was she knew specific things which I have never had before, I would definitely recommend a reading by April and I can't wait to have my next one done! Thank you so much April for everything. colon
  • Anonymous From FB

    I just wanted to say thank you to april for all her help and support. I requested a reading and had some follow up questions. April spent lots of time with me outside the reading i had requested. No matter how many questions i had she happily answered me. Her approach is kind and honest. I have been going through a tough time and she has made it so much easier for me. Her reading was thorough and i look forward to the events she stated coming true. I would highly recommend april for her caring helpful ways. Thank you april Xx

    Have just finished a Fb Messenger reading with April. Absolutely spot on the mark. Gave me such reassurance, was done with humour and empathy and laid my mind to rest over several issues. It made me laugh and smile with others.  I recommend anyone to give April the chance to help them.  I will be back.xxxx colon
  • Rachael Williams

     I have purchased 3 spells myself from April, Marriage Spell, Relationship Spell & a Weight Loss Spell, So cheap that you wont even notice the difference in your bank balance but you will notice the difference in your life. I'm not married yet and was meant to be married in Late August, BUT its been brought forward to this month, I would have written the review sooner only I've been busy planning a wedding and its all thanks to April and I've lost weight. Not only are you purchasing a spell but I gained a friend. April will go the extra mile to help you, Her honesty and commitment to her customers is so warming and I know I appreciate it. But please don't take my word for it, Buy a spell yourself and i promise you will not be disappointed. XXX colon

  • Jennifer Coulson

    Hi, I've had many spells and products from April and Mel in the past. Mainly Money and Confidence Spells. I have not been disappointed yet. Last month I've won £800 after receiving my Money Spell. This month I have even managed to top that....I won £1100! The biggest one yet for me. My readings were always very accurate, they are very detailed and personal. My Pendulum questions and predictions, were also very accurate. I personally love those the most. Also, I bought the Angel Wing bracelets, and i'm totally in love with those! I would purchase from those 2 beautiful Ladies again..ANYTIME! A quick update to say just after writing this I won another £160  🙂 Thank you so much!
