Positive Affirmations

I credit positive thinking and the use of positive affirmations for saving my life and I mean that in the physical sense as well as the spiritual.

By all accounts according to my physicians (dozens of them) I should not even be here to write this article or even worst yet this site would not even exist as it was 12 years ago when I was first told I had less than a year to live.

I don’t like to keep rehashing old stories but I feel in this case it really helps to support the fact that we all have more control over our circumstances in life than most tend to believe.

Positive Affirmations For Healing Oneself

Abundant Health And Wellness Are My Birthright

I’ve been using affirmations to affect positive changes in my life long before I was first diagnosed, however I must admit after my diagnosis I stepped up my use of positive affirmations and I’ve kept them going strong over the past 12 years.

My Energy And Vitality Are Increasing Every Day I Feel Strong And Healthy

I’ve had six brain surgeries to date and with each one my prognosis was worse than the previous and I am currently (4-24-2012) scheduled to have my seventh within the month or two and it will be the longest (8 to 10 hours) and most serious of them all.

I will not lie to you or try to convince you that I’m not worried about the possible outcome but I will tell you that I firmly believe that my chance of surviving is greatly enhanced because I persistently feed my mind with positive affirmations.

I Strengthen My Mind And My Body Repeating Positive Affirmations

There are thousands of cases where patients have survived incurable and fatal illnesses which they fully attribute to the practice of visualization in combination with the use of positive affirmations for programming there subconscious mind.

The human mind is the most powerful tool we could ever possess. Our thoughts have power and we can use them positively or negatively.

My Thoughts Have The Magnificent Power To Heal And I Affirm Good Health

Programming The Mind With Positive Affirmations

You can control your thoughts with your affirmations. You have the power to replace negative, self-defeating thoughts and feelings with positive ones and you can do this almost instantly through the repetitive use of positive affirmations.

Whatever you feed through your conscious mind gets picked up by your subconscious mind and it will then go to work to bring what it has been fed to life.

We all program our minds either consciously or subconsciously by the things we say to ourselves or to others. If your self-talk is negative this gets stored in the brain and if you speak poorly of others it is no different.

You program your mind with everything you say or think and this is exactly why and how positive affirmations work for transforming your life.

Positive Affirmations Video


Your subconscious mind never sleeps so if you fade off to sleep with your mind focused on the troubles of your day or worries of the day to come you are programming yourself for failure or at the very least to have a bad day.

This is what makes the use of affirmations so amazing, you don’t even have to believe in the process to reap the benefits. Of course you will achieve much faster results if you believe in the process from the start.

Your brain is most receptive first thing in the morning and just before fading off to sleep in the evening so if you were to feed your mind with repetitive positive affirmations at those prime times of receptivity you would notice significant changes rather quickly.

Positive Affirmations For Subconscious Programming!

The human brain is like a sponge it absorbs everything we say to ourselves or to others so you can use positive affirmations to set yourself up for success or you can set yourself up for failure with negative affirmations and self-talk.

“Thought Is The Sculptor Who Can Create The Person You Want To Be.”

Henry David Thoreau

Verbalizing positive statements to describe and relate to a particular situation, circumstance or desired outcome is an important step for achieving your goals.

When the affirmation is verbalized often the subconscious mind absorbs it and produces the positive responding action.

Anything we say whether it be negative or positive, spoken out load or kept silent within our thoughts is all a direct form of subconscious programming.

This is such an easy concept to understand and it’s even easier to put to use but all too often we tend to place less value on that which is easy verses that which is difficult.

It’s like we have conditioned ourselves into believing that all things good must come with great difficulty, sacrifice or hard work.

Nothing could be farther from the truth!

Using positive affirmations to control your thoughts, feelings and ultimately your actions is a simple yet incredibly powerful method for creating change in your life.

So where and how do you start?

If your life is filled with stress and worry and the people around you are negative minded how are you suppose to turn on the positive thinking switch?

What would you think if I told you there’s an easy, effective and almost effortless method to help get you on the fast track to success using positive affirmations? Well there is but we’ll get to that in a little bit.

In the mean time there are some changes that you can make to help condition your mind for success.

Positive Affirmations Programming Your Mind For Success!

I would bet that you don’t receive much positive feedback from others throughout the day, which by the way is not uncommon.

How often do you praise yourself for having accomplished something special?

If you perform outstanding at work or at home do you feed your mind with positive reinforcement? Does anyone around you?

In fact if you were to consciously go about your day and try to make note of just how many times someone actually said something positive to you and about you I would bet that by day’s end your notepad would be as blank as it was at the start of your day.

We live in a very negative minded world and negativity feeds off negativity. How often do you find yourself engaged in a conversation in which everyone seems to complaining about something?

This is extremely common in the workplace, you might have one co-worker complain about how bad their back hurts and then someone else will complain about their ailment and before you know it everyone joins in as though it’s a competition to see who has it worse.

That is just one example but I’m sure you get the idea and if you gave it some thought you could come up with some of your own.

Negative, negative, negative your brain is taking it in all day everyday and if you don’t do something to override it you will never break the cycle.

Your outer world is a mirror image of your inner world. If your self-talk is negative and you harbor bad feelings, stress and turmoil on the inside that is exactly what you will experience on the outside.

However this can be changed and controlled with consistent positive reinforcement and through the repetitive use of positive affirmations.

Can you see just how important it is to use positive affirmations to help flood the mind with some positive energy?

So I ask you again. Why is it so hard for you to praise yourself, to congratulate yourself for a job well-done, to pat your own back once in a while?

Using Positive Affirmations For Positive Reinforcement

Positive affirmations come in many forms and speaking well of yourself and to yourself is an excellent way to feed your mind with positive energy.

So instead of waiting around for others to give you some positive feedback why not give it to yourself?

You can easily begin to reprogram your subconscious mind with positive thoughts and feelings.

You can start this whole transformation by first being kinder to yourself. You must learn to make your self-talk work for you and not against you and this can be done with positive affirmations.

Your first step is to begin to pay more attention to everything you say throughout the day, consciously or subconsciously.

If you catch yourself saying anything negative about you or anyone else this will have a negative impact on your inner-being almost instantly.

It doesn’t matter if you speak it aloud or if you just hold it as a thought, a conscious negative thought triggers the subconscious mind into bringing up previous thoughts that associate with the predominant negative thought or statement.

As you begin to feed your mind with positive affirmations you give power to your inner-awareness and this in turn makes it easier for you to catch yourself thinking or speaking negatively.

Positive self-talk in the form of positive affirmations  can have a profound impact on your self-esteem, your self-confidence and most of all your feelings of self-worth.

It’s time to start changing your old ways of thinking and to get rid of your limiting beliefs for good. It’s time to start programming your conscious and subconscious mind for success.

You can gain greater control over your life when you begin to program your mind with positive affirmations and there is no better time to start than right now!

If you want to really accelerate the process and your progress you can do so in your sleep. Remember I mentioned there was an easy, effective and almost effortless method for programming the mind with positive affirmations?

Well with the help of modern technology you can program your subconscious mind while you sleep. Your brain is most receptive as you fade off to sleep at night, certain times during the sleep cycle, just before and as you awaken in the morning so there is no better time to feed your mind with positive affirmations.

Although this tends to be a problem for most people because they have a hard time clearing the mind at night and in the morning it is always a rush to get to work or get the kids off to school.

I have the perfect solution! All you need is an mp3 player, an iPod, a CD player or anything that you can use to play an mp3 track or a CD.

The audio programs below can help to automatically program your subconscious mind at the most optimal times with repetitive positive affirmations. All you need to do is upload the audio programs into your mp3 player put in your ear buds (headset), set your player to repeat and fade off to sleep.

Just think of how easy it will be to feed your mind with positive affirmations at the two most receptive times of the day. By setting your player to repeat not only will you fade off to sleep while your mind is being fed with positive affirmations you will awaken to the same.

This Series Contains 9 separate audio tracks, you can play the tracks separately or you can play them in series.

Hi Joe,
I truly appreciate the prayers, if not for my faith and my positive attitude I’m not too sure I would be sitting here typing this message.

Affirmations DO work and it is not difficult to begin to use them in your life. Read through the article again, I give plenty of examples on how to start using positive affirmations to improve all areas of your life. If you read through it again and you still need help getting started just let me know and I will come up with something to help.

God Bless You My Friend!
Sincerely,
Howard

I almost forgot, you mentioned your website and I tried to follow the link you left but it just redirected me to the search page again. If you need some help with the site I would be more than happy to help you get it up and running. Just let me know and I will see what I can do.

Thank you for your kind words and for the well wishes on Friday (which has come and gone : ) sorry so late with my responses!

I always keep the thought in the back of my mind that the more I try to help others the more I help myself, so I guess I am a little selfish : )
Thanks again!
God Bless You!

Hello Howard,
I will be praying and sending you positive energy for your surgery.. Im sure, everything will go good for you!

I do have a question? Can we do more than one affimations in a day or just focus on one at a time?

Take care!

Hi Jeanine,

Thank you so much for your well wishes it warms my heart to read such messages : )

About the affirmations, no you definitely should not limit yourself to just one affirmation. If you are looking to really improve something specific in your life you may want to give more attention to that but other than that you should fill all your spare moments with a variety of positive affirmations.

Here is just one example of how I use them throughout the day. I always try to be very conscious of my thoughts but no matter how conscious you try to be they will always get away from you at times so if I catch myself thinking, doing or responding to a situation in a negative fashion I will inject some positive affirmations to help program my mind so the next time I face a similar situation I will have the tools to deal with it in a positive fashion.

Honestly during the day I do what I can to just stay in a positive and happy mood and I don’t really focus on just one specific affirmation. However if I’m really trying to manifest something specific into my life I will spend the last 15 to 30 minutes of the day visualizing and reaffirming whatever it is I am trying to manifest. I will do the same when I first wake up, I will either stay in bed for an extra 15 to 30 minutes or I typically come down to my desk/hospital bed and spend a good hour visualizing/mediating with my ear-buds in with some background soundscapes playing.

I’m ridiculous sometimes, I could have said all that in two sentences. During my active day I remain conscious of my attitude and reaffirm the positive when something negative slips by. If I have some thing specific to work on I do that before fading off to sleep. I will repeat or listen to affirmations with my ear-buds in and repeat that in the morning.

You’re probably more confused now than before you asked your question : )

Best Wishes!
Howard

If I can spread some joy and happiness their way I will do so, whether they accept it or not is up to them. I refuse to allow others attitudes and behaviors to affect mine unless they are spreading love and happiness I will always allow that to elevate my mood.

Peace and Joy My Friend!

Dear Xenyth, Never lose faith my friend, think of ways that you can use your experience to help others because that in turn will help you as well. Send me an email directly and I will help you in any way that I can. my email: Howard @ howard-platt.com

Hi Howard, I have been reading your site for about 6 months now and I cannot even tell you how much you have helped me with my struggles. I purchased your affirmations package and at first I really didn’t think they would help but then I did what you suggested, I put my mp3 player on repeat and started falling to sleep with them playing every night and I began to notice a change in my attitude and enthusiasm almost immediately. Purchasing your positive affirmations recordings is turning out to be one of the best investments I have ever made and I just wanted you to know how grateful I am for the dedication you show to this site and your readers.

Thank you Howard!
Darren

Hi Darren,

Nothing makes me happier than receiving comments such as yours and it has nothing to do with you purchasing my product, it’s in knowing that I have helped in some small way to improve someones life.

Writing for this site is truly a passion and I hope to be doing this for the next 50+ years. I am currently writing a book that I hope to have published on Amazon very soon and that has kept me from adding more articles to this site but once the book is released I will be sending all my readers a little surprise so in the end it will be worth it.

Thank you for your comment and kind words, I wish you the best with the affirmations, I know if you continue to use them as I suggested you WILL experience amazing results in your life.

Take Care and God Bless!
Sincerely,
Howard

I lost my job 4 months ago, and have been struggling to find another, I do no about positive affirmation but reading your articles has given me inspiration to continue to re-programme my mind and not give up because circumstance dictated that my finances and life are not worth living.

Thank you

Dear Carla,

Please don’t ever think that your life is not worth living because nothing could be further from the truth! We are all here for a purpose but sometimes it can be confusing and frustrating when we do not have a clear understanding of what our purpose is but trust me you do have a purpose and it will reveal itself to you in time.

I have been fighting one serious medical challenge after another for over 13 years and there are times when I get frustrated and question why I have to go through all that I have but then something will reveal itself to me that gives me clarity. Continue to strengthen your mind and never stop using positive affirmations because when you mix affirmations with visualization you have the power to create wonderful changes to your life and your mind.

If you need someone to talk with I am here, just use the contact form on this site and I will be more than happy to correspond with you.

Take Care and God Bless!
Sincerely,
Howard
