Read the set of related affirmations in this post aloud. It’s important to your conscious and subconscious mind to hear the affirmations said in your own voice. Choose one or two of the affirmations from the set to start working with. You only need one or two affirmations, used consistently, to make a substantial change in your life.

Affirmations are most effective when said aloud. Studies have proven that it’s impossible to think a negative thought and make a positive statement aloud at the same time. Use this principle to halt negative thoughts in their tracks and turn them around.

Say your chosen affirmation loud enough for your mind to hear your voice saying the words and take notice of how you feel as you begin and as you continue your practice. Feeling better? Repeat your chosen affirmation at least twice a day – morning, and night – for at least 30 days, and reinforce your affirmation by writing it in your journal.

Affirmations are powerful, positive sentences that can change your mindset. Don’t focus on challenges and lack, but on healthy self-esteem and unshakeable self-confidence. You can leverage the power of affirmations in your life by beginning an affirmation practice – using one or two favorite affirmations over the course of 30 to 60 days to permanently change your mindset and by extension, your life.

Comment below that you’ve started this process. Add entries in your journal each day as to how you’re feeling. Note the positive changes you’ve made and celebrate them! Send me a note using the contact form and let me know how you’re doing!


Affirmations to Empower You to Forgive

I forgive the people who know no better and do not take these things personally.

It is not my responsibility when others do not act with integrity.

I forgive the people who have wronged me and embrace a life of love, joy, and peace.

Each encounter I experience is a learning opportunity, I choose to see the big picture.

Compassion, patience, detachment, and understanding are my natural state.

No one is perfect, including me, and that is okay.

I extend compassion to those acting with integrity.

Though my heart is hurt, and my feelings wounded I will continue to love.

I forgive those who have wronged me, and I release the resentment I have stored. I am at peace.

When I forgive, I heal.

I know that people hurt people due to their own pain and fear.

I cannot change others; I can only change my heart.

I am overflowing with unconditional love, and I can choose it at every opportunity.

I will see this life through the lens of loving eyes.

I am grateful that I can choose forgiveness.

I choose to be free of hatred, sadness, anger, and hurt.

There is no purpose to holding onto my anger, it does not serve me.

My happiness and peace of mind are more important than a grudge.

The only one hurt by my anger is me. Letting go serves me.

The best way to bring joy into my life is to let go and move on.
