The key when saying, and/or reading, an affirmation is to feel the feelings they portray. It can not only help you relax but also know that at the core of your being, these statements are true. If they feel out of reach or you are having a hard time convincing yourself of their truth, adjust the affirmation to include the words choose, potential, or willing to make them true for you at this moment.

Remember, affirmations gain their power from repetition. The more often you say them, the more they will impact your reality. Affirmations are not a one-time-even, learn to say them until life is perfect.
