FullSizeRender (2)Positive affirmations are specific statements or objects that help us to overcome negative thoughts, self-sabotage, and low self esteem.  They can take many forms…some people use calendars that provide daily affirmations, or phone apps, cards, or other sources of affirmations to help themselves.

Positive affirmations give us something to think about, and can provide support for us even when we feel that we have no support from anyone else, or from within ourselves.  They make us stop and think about things differently from how we may have thought about them in the past.  Positive affirmations tell us that things are going to be ok, and remind us that we have strength inside ourselves to be the best that we can be and get through difficult situations.

FullSizeRender (1)Lately, I have been using a deck of cards called Miracles Now, by Gabrielle Bernstein.  With over 60 cards in the deck, I rarely have a repeat, and, if I do, I take it as a sign that I need to pay extra attention to whatever the card is telling me.

When we feel like we’re overwhelmed, too stressed, or in need of guidance, positive affirmations can help ground us and remind us to be who we are if we want to succeed, and I find these cards particularly useful for that.

When choosing a method of receiving positive affirmations, you have to pick something that appeals to you.  For me, these cards are that – I love their bright colours and the fonts used.  Each card is like an explosion of happiness in my hands.  As can be seen from my photos, the cards are really brilliantly coloured and there is a lot of variety.  These cards really speak to me, and I find that they can be an instant pick-me-up when I’m having an off day.

FullSizeRenderI always try and draw a card in the morning for some assistance and guidance throughout the day, but if I forget, I do it whenever I have time.  The deck is packaged in a neat little box, and it’s small enough that I can discretely slip it in my purse and take it with me wherever I go.

While positive affirmations should never be viewed as a “cure-all”, sometimes reading some positive words on a card or anywhere else, or even hearing them from another person can be enough to give us the fuel to pick ourselves up and keep going.

I have many oracle decks that I have used in the past for positive affirmations, as oracle cards often serve that purpose well, but this deck is my absolute favourite, and it is the only one I use exclusively to pull affirmations for the day.

Are positive affirmations something you’ve incorporated into your life?
