How do affirmations works?

If you’re looking for ways to recognize changes in your life, something as simple as affirmations can be a great help to get the ball rolling and rewire your brain for success by acting. In other words, affirmations introduce a measure of behavioral change, suggesting that they are not limited to positive thinking. By linking positive affirmations with future results, the subjects experience a strengthened sense of self in the face of the challenges.

They work because they are written in the language of the brain according to a certain formula. It turns out that our brains are quite strict and uncomplicated in their linguistic rules. Positive affirmations are like written language in the brain, and they follow a very specific formula for how to do this. 

The use of affirmations like “Create Abundance” will teach your subconscious to act as if you are creating abundance in your life. This includes pretending to be the person you want to be, thinking about what you want to be and feeling like you can achieve your goals. An easy way to do this is to add motivational adjectives and verbs to your affirmations.

Think about how you want to change yourself and your life, and be confident in confirming your true desires. You can use affirmations to bring about change on many different levels by taking a moment to think not only about the things you want to do, but also about the experiences you like, the way you want to feel them. This will reinforce your positive feelings about who you are today, and you will be more open to accepting affirmations that describe what you really want to become.

Writing affirmations for yourself can be an exciting and empowering experience. When writing affirmations, some people like to confirm with just a few simple lines that are relevant to them. Other people prefer to draw up a more comprehensive list of affirmations that describe many of the changes they would like to see in their lives. 

Some people use affirmations to make an object the object of the sentence: “Money flows through my life.” This works well as a mantra, but it is not as powerful as an affirmation like “I effortlessly attract money”

Your affirmations must revolve around all the things you want and that are currently missing in your life. You just have to put yourself in the mood to have what you want and let the universe find the most efficient and harmonious way to bring it together. 

If you encounter an affirmation that makes you tremble with discomfort, it is a good sign that it is an affirmation that you must repeat. Your brain needs a lot of extra work to conjure a meaning out of a negative statement, because it is wired to seek positive instructions. A statement that contains no words is not as powerful as it could be. Your brain reacts better when you don’t think something is right.

When you confirm a word or thought, you reinforce the validity of the idea. Depending on what you tell others and what you say in your own head, you can make a conscious decision to affirm positivity or negativity.

On the other hand, if you need more persuasive goal affirmations presented in progressive tenses, they can help you put yourself in positive thoughts and build new beliefs over time. Goal affirmations work best when you are working to manifest something specific in your life. Mantra affirmations are useful to repeat during meditation, to give yourself an extra motivation boost. Here are some mantras and affirmations that work best for you. 

You get inspired and draw on that great sense of empowerment and self-confidence that affirmations evoke. You start to project energy into the world and have confidence in yourself that you are ready to achieve your goal. Like any other, you are aware of your goal, but it is in the back of your mind and does not guide your daily actions. If you remember your goals every day with affirmations, make sure that you act in the direction of those goals every day. For some of you, the exercise itself is hard, which means that you will benefit from a good goal. 

Recipe For A Great Morning!

Recipe For A Great Morning!

They say the way we start our mornings, has a big effect on how the rest of our day pans out.
Start out stressed, and the rest of your day will be stressed.
Start out happy, and the rest of your day will be happy.

The problem is that as soon as we open our eyes in the morning, our brain automatically starts up, and it begins to fill our mind with thoughts that sometimes seem to come out of nowhere. It could be thinking about something that happened yesterday, a problem you had, a situation that occurred, a conversation with your loved one, decisions you need to make, or it could be about all of the things that you have to get done today. 

Now, if your brain is filling your mind with happy thoughts and things you look forward to doing, then you are in luck and probably have your sh** together. However, for most of us it begins to fill the mind with worry and tasks which create tension and anxiety. Furthermore, many of us compound this problem by rolling over and checking our smart phones as soon as we open our eyes, and begin to stress our mind by reading work emails, reading news articles, or checking texts.

Our minds are very sensitive to perceived danger, and default to thinking and reminding us of things that we perceive to be bad, dangerous or scary. It does this in order to help protect us. The logic of the primitive mind thinks, hey if I can spot the dangerous and scary things for you, then you will be able to better prepare to fight or run away in time. The problem is that nowadays we don’t have dangerous dinosaurs roaming around the corner, and plus always thinking of scary or negative things incurs a lot of stress on your mind and body, which is bad. 

Why it’s a bad idea to check your phone when you wake up

  • News is FILLED with articles that affect our mind and mood in negative ways we don’t even realize.
    • Why? Because negative content gets more clicks since it exploits a primitive part of the human brain that looks for danger. You are much more likely to click on an article warning you of an impending economy collapse, then about an article saying that the economy is doing great!
    • Why? Because your subconscious wants to protect you from danger, so by learning about the dangers out there, you will presumably be able to avoid it and protect yourself.
    • The news is filled constantly about all kinds of problems around the world, murders, ISIS, house prices going up too fast, house prices coming down too fast, stocks prices increasing or decreasing, celebrities splurging on new exotic cars and houses, Cash me outside girl making millions on Only Fans… all leading you to fear, FOMO or that your life sucks, which ultimately causes MORE anxiety and depression.
    • The average click-through rate on headlines with negative superlatives was a staggering 63% higher than that of their positive counterparts.
  • Some articles are not necessarily about anything dangerous, for example the consistent barrage of articles about the Kardashians, and other celebrities that have a seemingly perfect life on social media, spending $30k on handbags, while there are millions of people unemployed, sick and dying of COVID.
  • What we don’t realize is these articles in fact do affect us negatively, because they make us feel that our life is somehow inadequate when compared to these perfect people, or at least that’s what they portray on their social media with all of the filters and comments and followers. Why is this bad? Psychologically, comparing yourself to others is a recipe for disaster because it will force you to see the GOOD about others’ lives, yet you know all of the good and BAD about your life! Do you see why this could be problematic?

Doing these negative activities in the morning, sets up our brain to activate fight or flight mode, which causes stress and anxiety.

The way we start our mornings, has a big effect on how the rest of our day pans out.
Start out stressed, and the rest of your day will seem stressed.
Start out happy, and the rest of your day will be happy.



  1. Sleep on time.
  2. Stop using electronic devices 30-60 minutes before bed time. This mainly means no phones, tables or TV.
  3. Don’t check your email or read the news when you wake up.
  4. Do the Miracle Morning Routine consistently. It’s a daily morning routine made popular by Hal Elrod, and it’s called the SAVERS routine, which stands for Silence, Affirmation, Visualization, Exercise and Scribing.

Makes it easy to remember the steps and track your progress.

After 30 days of doing the routine, I’d love to know if your morning has improve!

Good luck on your Miracle Morning Journey, you will love the results!

What Is Mantra Meditation?

What Is Mantra Meditation?

A mantra is a syllable, word, or phrase that is repeated during meditation. Mantras can be spoken, chanted, whispered, or repeated in the mind. Most mantra meditation techniques have two essential components: mindfulness meditation and mantra recitation or chanting. While this age-old practice is known to have Buddhist and Hindu roots, forms of “sacred word” recitation exist within a great variety of spiritual traditions, including Judeo-Christian and Shamanic. Nowadays, mantra practice is also gaining popularity as part of secular mindfulness practice.

People do mantra meditation for different reasons. For some, it serves as a kind of mental protection against unwelcome distractions or emotions, as when battling sleeplessness or coping with fears associated with travel. For others, mantra meditation serves a deeper spiritual purpose. In certain Hindu and ancient Christian traditions, for example, mantra recitation is used to focus the mind-heart and connect with the divine, both within and without. In Buddhism, one of the benefits of mantra recitation is that it helps keep the mind focused and receptive to the blessings of the present moment. As Buddhism is a non-thesitic tradition, mantra serves to evoke positive qualities and confidence rather than an external deity.

How Meditation Changes the Brain

How Meditation Changes the Brain

Did you know that simply sitting and breathing mindfully can significantly change the brain? It’s true


Meditation Nurtures the Brain

We’ve all heard that meditation leads to greater mental clarity, lower levels of stress and reduced anxiety. But how does meditation benefit the brain? Studies have shown that mindfulness practice brings about positive physiological changes that make the connection between meditation and the brain even more profound.

In recent decades, meditation has become more conventional. People are spending time working with their minds, following their breath and learning to appreciate the power of the present moment. Meditation groups are popping up everywhere – in schools, communities, senior centers and beyond. It’s become so mainstream that even the business community has joined the movement – as described in a recent article from Business Insider entitled “Silicon Valley is obsessed with meditation, and there’s new evidence it changes the brain for the better.”

Research in the field of psychology has confirmed what every meditator knows: meditation is good for body and soul. Science is now able to reinforce the claims by showing how meditation physically impacts the extraordinarily complex organ between our ears. Recent scientific evidence confirms that meditation nurtures the parts of the brain that contribute to well-being. Furthermore, it seems that a regular practice deprives the stress and anxiety-related parts of the brain of their nourishment.

Let’s have a brief look at some of the science.

Effects of meditation on the brain

In an interview in the Washington Post, Harvard neuroscientist Sara Lazar gives an introduction to how meditation affects the brain. She explains how four regions of meditators’ brains associated with healthy brain function become more substantial, while one of the areas associated with undesirable behavior actually shrinks. Let’s have a look at these areas.

Left Hippocampus

This is the area in the brain that helps us learn. The tools that we use for cognitive ability and memory are found here, as are emotional regulators associated with self-awareness and empathy. Research confirms that as the cortical thickness of the hippocampus grows in volume through meditation, gray-matter density increases and all of these important functions are nurtured.

Posterior Cingulate

The posterior cingulate is connected with wandering thoughts and self-relevance – that is, the degree of subjectivity and referral to oneself when processing information. It seems that the larger and stronger the posterior cingulate, the less the mind wanders and the more realistic the sense of self can be.

Two of the vitally important effects that meditation has on the mind are the ability to remain attuned to the present moment without judgment, regret or anticipation; and the ability to observe sensations and emotions that arise in the mindstream without necessarily identifying with them. Meditation seems to increase the density of the posterior cingulate.
