The power of positive affirmations
By setting the right intention every morning for the rest of your day, you can direct the course of your day in a positive direction. You can do this with the help of deliberate affirming positive thoughts. These affirmations are a positive reminder to stay positive throughout the day, no matter what is going on at this moment in your life. Affirmations help to stop the negative self-talk and remind you of the truth of life. They keep you out of the illusion of this physical reality we get caught up in so easily.
Affirmations are like magic to me. When I read them daily, I immediately feel a shift in my mood, in the things I attract, in my relationships and financially. The opposite also happens when I forget to read them and the negative thoughts feel free to take over again. This is why affirmations are extremely important to me. They raise my vibration and keep me positive. They bring hope and faith, that no matter what’s coming for you, you’ll be okay. They remind you of your inner strength, to trust your inner self and of the fact that everything that’s crossing your path today is nothing more than a new challenge that will help you grow.
What are Affirmation Cards for?
Affirmation cards also come with affirmations. The difference with just using affirmations and affirmation cards is that they can help you to answer your life questions. Each card has its own positive message for you. And by pulling a card every day, every week, month, year or actually, whenever you want, you can set your mind in a positive direction and get out of your thought patterns. Each message is meant to give you a new perspective on a certain situation in your life. Affirmation cards are a tool to practice self-care and to develop more gratitude for your life and for yourself.
You can use them to talk to when there is no one around and you need some good advise. A good set of affirmation cards is a good friend, that gives you positive advise whenever you need it. This is a friend that will never bring you down, but always chooses to be loving, understanding and to lift you up. A friend that shows you there is a silver lining in every situation. Just ask your question and the deck will help you to find the right answer.
Which affirmation deck should I choose?
There are tons of different affirmation decks available nowadays. They come in so many designs, shapes and with different affirmations and messages. Chosing the right affirmation deck is a very personal thing to do. You might need different affirmations, messages or artwork to still your mind with and fit your needs best than me. But either way, I’d like to share the sets with you that in my opinion come with great, bright designs and valuable affirmations, that I believe will be valuable for most of you.
How to use Affirmation Cards?
You can use them according to your needs. They don’t come with hard rules. Just ask a question, pull a card and see what message the Universe is giving you to work with today. Tip: Memorize the affirmation to repeat it to yourself throughout the day. You may pick a card as often as needed; once a day, once a week, once a month, or a couple of times a day, a few cards at the same time if you need more advise. And you can of course also use them to give advise to a friend or family member in need.
