Affirmations can be a powerful tool in helping to reshape our self-talk. When we program ourselves to default to positive I am statements rather than critical ones, we are more resilient, happier, and energized.
However, when we are not in the right space for them, affirmations will not serve us. If we repeat a statement such as "I am worthy," and our own inner beliefs directly contradict this, it can make us feel worse. We might feel as if we will never feel worthy, or that we're a failure because we can't align with the positive affirmation.
It's important to listen to yourself and to gauge whether the affirmations are making you feel better or not. Using affirmations when you're not ready is like trying to lift heavy weights before you've built up muscle. When we take the time to build a solid foundation, we prepare ourselves for true and lasting change.
In order to be in a space to get the most out of affirmations, you'll want to first clear out the directly contradicting beliefs within yourself. You can do this using meditation, visualization, counseling, or coaching.
