The short answer to the question ‘do affirmations work’ is quite simply, yes.
A few years ago, I found myself in the darkest doldrums of despair after yet another break up. No matter what I did, I just could not hold down a relationship.
Every romance would begin with those intense fireworks of passion and promises of never-ending love. We would skip together in fields of rose-tinted blissful happiness, and plan our perfect lives together.
That is until the 3-6 month marker.
And then ‘pop’!
Then my inner demons would begin to sabotage every relaxing Sunday stroll and every innocent conversation. I pushed, and pushed, and pushed every romantic relationship I had until that person no longer loved me.
You see, I did not love myself very much at that time.
For me, being alone was dark, cold and desolate. I needed other people’s love but could not believe it when they did actually love me. So I pushed them away.
The leaves began to turn golden
Something profound happened when I read that book. The air changed and I felt as though I was breathing for the first time.
The affirmation miracle…
I began to use the affirmations that I desperately needed, and my body and heart responded to the words. It was as if I was cracked, dried up soil, finally feeling the pitter patter of rain falling, soaking deep into my roots and nourishing me.
I slowly began to feel love for myself and my affirmations became a joy to write, speak and hear.
I fell in love with myself and it was a truly enlightened experience. One that I really encourage everyone to have themselves.
And now that time has passed…
I will admit that, since then, I have had other heart breaks. But each time I did, I did not feel as afraid of being on my own. I knew I had myself, and what a person that was to have by my side for hugs and comforting tea!
Now, I have integrated affirmations into my every day routine, using them in all aspects of my life, and the success is marked. So, do affirmations work? Powerfully so.
Amongst many triumphs, I have had a deeply harmonious, joyful relationship with my partner for 2 years, I have started my own business, and most importantly, I am now my own best friend.
Thanks to the power of affirmations.
