Let’s be nostalgic and go back in time, shall we? Imagine we are in a classroom at school que the teacher says this: “You can create your own reality. Your mind is like a magic wand. The Law of Attraction is like a special spell. It says that whatever you think about and feel strongly about, good or bad, can come true. So, if you think happy thoughts and believe in yourself, good things are more likely to happen. It’s like planting seeds in a garden; if you take care of them and believe they’ll grow, they usually do!”
Wouldn’t that have been amazing? I can only “sigh” to that idea… however, as a grown-up (like close to an old lady now, lol) I know it.
To make good things happen, think happy thoughts, believe in yourself, and work hard. Just like magic, you can help create the life you want!

Do Affirmations work?
I used to be sceptical about affirmations, but I decided to give them a try with an open mind. I started incorporating positive affirmations into my daily routine, repeating phrases like ‘I am capable,’ ‘I am worthy,’ and ‘I attract abundance.’ At first, it felt a bit awkward, and I wasn’t sure if they were really making a difference.
Also started using some of the manifestation methods available.
And over time, I began to notice subtle shifts in my mindset and outlook. I found myself feeling more confident, motivated, and optimistic. Instead of dwelling on negative thoughts, I started focusing on solutions and opportunities. And gradually, I started seeing tangible changes in my life – from improved relationships to new opportunities coming my way.
I’m not saying that affirmations are a magic solution or that they work overnight. It takes consistent practice and patience to see results. But for me, they’ve been a valuable tool for cultivating a positive mindset and creating the life I desire.
Start with simple, positive statements that resonate with you, and see how it feels. You might be surprised at the subtle but powerful impact they can have over time.
What’s the science behind affirmations?
While the science behind affirmations is still evolving, research studies have shown promising results in various contexts, including improving self-esteem, reducing stress, and enhancing performance.
Ultimately, the effectiveness of affirmations may vary from person to person, depending on factors such as belief, consistency, and individual differences in cognitive processing.
The effectiveness of affirmations can be understood through various psychological and neuroscientific principles:
Affirmations can influence the brain’s neuroplasticity, the ability of the brain to reorganize and form new neural connections. When you repeat affirmations consistently, you are essentially rewiring your brain to adopt new thought patterns and beliefs.
Affirmations are rooted in cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) principles, which emphasize the connection between thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. By repeating positive affirmations, you can challenge and reframe negative self-talk and beliefs, leading to more positive emotions and actions.
Self-affirmation theory suggests that affirming core values and beliefs can help protect self-esteem and buffer against threats. When you repeat affirmations that align with your values and goals, you strengthen your self-concept and resilience in the face of challenges.
The placebo effect demonstrates the powerful influence of belief and expectation on outcomes. Even if affirmations work primarily through psychological mechanisms, the belief that they will have a positive effect can enhance their effectiveness.
Affirmations can also influence attentional bias, the tendency to focus on certain stimuli while ignoring others. By repeating affirmations related to your goals or desired outcomes, you may become more attuned to opportunities and possibilities that align with them.
