Affirmations Don’t Work When Used Incorrectly

We are using affirmations the wrong way, my name is Sanam and I’m a Counselling Psychologist. Affirmations have become so popular on social media recently but are being used the wrong way. No matter how many times you repeat in the mirror, for example, “I’m enough, I’m enough, I’m enough, if you don’t truly believe that you are enough, it doesn’t matter how many times you say it, it’s not going to make a difference.

Let me explain to you how to fix this and how to make affirmations really work for you. Our brains only learn by experience, so repeating something numerous amounts of times will have no impact. If you want affirmations to truly work for you, you have to get to the core as to why you don’t believe, for example, that you are good enough. Get to the core as to where the feeling of unworthiness is coming from, does it stem from your childhood, from your past relationships, is it a recent job situation?

Having a core belief of not being enough, for example, often has it’s roots in our childhood experiences. Once we’ve been able to really identify this, only then can we be able to deal with it and get to the pain that underlies all of these feelings. Another thing that you can really try is saying that “I am enough”, or saying other affirmations in moments where you truly believe it. So if there’s a moment where you truly felt worthy or if there’s a moment where you truly felt calm or safe, that’s when you need to say that affirmation.

Affirmations can be a very effective tool when used the correct way, and with the help of a professional mental health practitioner, this is possible. You can become or you can establish the reality of your affirmations when say them at the right time and when you truly believe what you are saying. Contact Conscious Psychology for a consultation.
