You may not know this, but neuroscience has proved that our thoughts can change the structure and function of our brains.
By practicing positive thought patterns (affirmations) repetitively, we actually create new grooves in the area of the brain that processes what we’re thinking about. The key is repetition.
When practicing affirmations, choose one or two to focus on for several weeks. Say the affirmation out loud in a confident voice several times a day and before you go to bed. To add more power to the affirmation, write it down as you speak it. Be sure your affirmations are in the present tense, as though they are a current reality.
Note: the difference between spiritual and other affirmations is that the former are non-materialistic. They are mainly for the enlightenment of the soul.
One can use these affirmations irrespective of one’s religion. Whether you are a Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, jew or of any other faith, it really does not matter. In a sense, spiritual affirmations are similar to prayers. Repeating them daily will give a spiritual bend to your mind. In this age of crass materialism, these affirmations will help you keep a balance in your life.
