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.

Choose one affirmation that feels easy to you and choose another that generates resistance or disbelief. The idea is to practice extending your current self-imposed limits and encourage growth.

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. Repeat your chosen affirmation multiple times a day for at least 30 days and reinforce your affirmation by writing it in your journal.

You can change your life by beginning an affirmation practice – using one or two favorite affirmations over the course of 30 to 60 days can permanently change your mindset and, your life.

I detach myself from negativity

I remove negative thoughts and ideas from my mind so that they have no power over me. I let go of unhelpful suggestions and harmful experiences. I focus on positive inspiration and reinforce my strengths and abilities. I intentionally take note of how optimism makes my life better.

I avoid dwelling on negativity that can hurt me

Instead of getting stuck in a negative thought process, I quickly analyze the feelings and the root causes of the negative emotion or thought. This allows me to make a fast and productive judgment call on how to handle the situation.

I have the emotional and mental freedom to manage my thoughts

I am strong enough mentally and spiritually grounded enough to decide for myself what I think and what I will dwell on. I choose to fight negativity and eliminate it from my life. I avoid creating bonds to negative things, experiences, or emotions.

My defenses against negativity are strong

I eliminate all the stress, anxiety, and worries that come with negativity. I throw away and forget harmful things. I get rid of the pain that can damage my soul.

I focus on my center, my spiritual values, and my support network. I turn to positive friends and loved ones for help during negative circumstances. I also have the option of professional help. I have multiple choices that assist me on this journey.

I distance myself from negative people because they hurt my mind and spirit. I know this is healthier than dwelling on the pain, and I prioritize my mental and spiritual health.

Today, I detach from the negative things in my life to focus on the positive. I appreciate the universe through an optimistic lens.
