Sages have known this since ancient times, and the newest discoveries in quantum physics confirm – everything in the Universe is made of energy. Energy streams structure themselves in certain patterns known as frequencies.
Manifesting means consciously choosing thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors that put you in alignment with the frequencies of your intentions. Affirmations are powerful tools that can help you reprogram your subconscious mind to create the reality you desire.
But what is the right way to do them? How much do you have to repeat affirmations for them to work? When will you know that you’ve repeated them enough?
Affirmations work by rewriting your subconscious patterns. The more you repeat them, the more effective they will be. You can also add a specific meaning to the number of times you repeat your affirmations.
For example, if you wish to specifically ask for help from your guardian angels or spirit guides, you can choose angel numbers that resonate with their frequencies.
When you are in the right mindset, it is enough to repeat your affirmations a few times, but more often than not, you will need to continuously repeat your affirmations for at least a few weeks.
However, there’s much more to it. The effectiveness of your affirmations will depend on the quality and wording of affirmations, the openness and suggestibility of your subconscious mind, the time of the day you use affirmations, and multiple other factors.
If you don’t want to be stuck endlessly repeating affirmations and wondering if they are working, follow these tips to supercharge your affirmations and make them much more effective.
9 Tips To Supercharge Your Affirmations
Affirmations are one of the most powerful tools you can use to reprogram your subconscious mind. The life we live is a reflection of our beliefs.
Our beliefs attune our frequency and attract the reality we experience, whether we are aware of it or not.
All of us have many limiting beliefs we have picked up from society and our families when we were growing up and even already when we were in our mothers’ wombs.
Follow these tips to purify your subconscious mind, make it receptive to affirmations, and manifest the life you want to live!
1. Create Fertile Soil
Think of affirmations as seeds you are planting in your subconscious mind. If the soil is infertile, dry, or damaged, nothing will grow there. You need to prepare your subconscious mind and make it as open and susceptible as possible so it becomes a fertile ground to plant your affirmations.
Meditation and journaling are two of the most powerful tools you can use to prepare your subconscious mind for affirmations.
Meditation expands your perception and helps you access new levels of consciousness. It relaxes the thought and perception patterns you are used to.
Journaling helps pour out your thoughts on paper and, as a result, see your thoughts from the side. Often we ruminate and think the same thoughts over and over again without finding a resolution or a way out of the cyclical thought patterns.
Journaling helps you clarify your thoughts and liberates the tension they create in your mental body. As you do this, you might also discover new solutions to your problems.
Freeing your mind from thoughts will create a lot of free space for implanting new beliefs with affirmations.
2. Remove What Doesn’t Serve You
As you self-reflect and journal, you will discover things that don’t serve you and don’t resonate with your highest life path.
If your life is cluttered with too many things to do, too many thoughts, plans, ideas, and desires, your energy is flowing in too many directions simultaneously, and that creates a lot of tension in your body and energy structure.
This tension makes you not susceptible to reprogramming old thought forms with affirmations.
Inspect all areas of your life to discover everything that doesn’t serve your highest good and remove it from your life.
3. Do Shadow Work
When family, society, and ourselves disapprove of certain qualities we possess, we begin oppressing them and hiding them from the world.
As a result, they don’t disappear but become a part of our subconscious aspect, known in Jungian psychology as the shadow. Shadow work helps you discover all aspects of yourself that you have suppressed during your life.
It helps you get to know yourself on a much deeper level and frees a lot of energy that you have been suppressing. It is not an easy process as you have to face the aspects of yourself you haven’t been willing to look at, but it is worth it as it helps you unlock your potential.
This process liberates constricted energy flow in your life and gives a lot of power to your affirmations to work much more powerfully.
4. Recognize Your Limiting Beliefs
All of us have limiting beliefs that prevent us from seeing our true, limitless nature and reaching our full potential. Throughout our lives, we are conditioned with ideas of what we “should do” and what we “can’t be.”
This puts us in a box and makes it much harder to manifest the reality we desire because we might feel unworthy of it or that it’s unreachable and too difficult to achieve.
Journal honestly about your beliefs and pay attention if you feel resistance to some of your desires. This will help you recognize where the energy flow is restricted in your life.
Address these limiting beliefs one by one. Reprogramming them will be your first goal when you start writing your affirmations.
5. Pick Your Battles
When we start our manifesting journey, it can be tempting to work on manifesting everything at once. You might be well aware of all areas in your life that you want to improve.
But remember that your subconscious beliefs have been formed over a long period. It will take focus and energy to form new neural pathways.
If you focus on multiple things at once, each thing will get some of your energy and focus, but it won’t be as effective as if you picked a single or a few areas to start.
Assess what you want to transform in your life first and give all your attention and focus to this area. This will make your affirmations work much faster than if you try to manifest ten different things at once.
6. Word Affirmations Correctly
You have most likely already noticed that some affirmations take an extremely long time to work or don’t work at all. A very likely reason for this is that you have not chosen the right way to word them.
Your subconscious mind won’t be happy if you try to bulldoze it with things that are opposite to the reality you experience or believe in. Instead, a much smarter approach is writing subtle and precise affirmations.
If you are currently poor and homeless, your subconscious mind will reject affirmations such as: “I am rich. I have a million dollars!”.
But saying to yourself: “I’m becoming more wealthy every day! I am getting closer and closer to my dream life!” will be a much better approach that will work and make you feel better about yourself.
Before you start using affirmations, sit with each of them and pay attention to how your body reacts to each of them. If you feel resistance instead of expansion and inspiration, try to word the affirmation differently.
7. Daily Affirmations
When it comes to repeating your affirmations, consistency and time of the day are crucial.
Ideally, you should repeat your affirmations daily and assign multiple time slots every day to focus on them. The best time to focus on your affirmations is early morning, as soon as you wake up, right before you fall asleep at night, and after your meditations.
At these moments, your brain is in the most susceptible state for reprogramming.
Besides that, do your best to repeat affirmations in your mind throughout the day whenever you think of them.
8. Honor Your Privacy
You can also keep your manifestations in written form in your wallet, pinned to your fridge, or on the screen of your phone. Just make sure you honor your manifestation journey and have enough privacy if you are displaying your affirmations in a place where someone else could see them.
Manifesting and using affirmations is nothing to be ashamed of, but it can be expected that more closed-minded people might be judgemental about your spiritual path.
Manifesting is a personal journey, and it doesn’t need to make sense to others. Make sure you don’t expose yourself to criticism or judgment of others, as it can derail your energy and make you start doubting your manifestation abilities.
Whenever you start doubting yourself, it gets much harder to manifest.
9. Take Inspired Action
To align with your affirmations, take action that feels right and inspiring. Even if you start by taking small steps in the direction of your dreams, the Universe will see that and respond to you by bringing your desires to life.
Keep your eyes open, as your blessings might come from a different direction than you had envisioned. This is very common as the Universe knows what’s best for us – even better than we do.
Using affirmations is a great tool for manifesting your desired reality. If you have noticed it takes a long time for your affirmations to work, even when you’ve been repeating them many times, take the steps outlined here to supercharge your affirmations and make them super powerful!
When it comes to affirmations, instead of endlessly repeating them, you need to repeat them the right way! Open yourself to trusting the Universe, and you will be impressed at the blessings coming your way!
