It is proven that affirmations help to reprogram one’s mind. When one repeats an affirmation over and over, the subconscious picks up on it as the present reality. Does this mean that people have the ability to completely turn around their life as they know it? In one word: yes.
You can co-create your world to your own specifications. You want a better relationship? Start telling yourself that you deserve it. Once you have heard this for so long, your mind will not settle for anything else. You want a better job? Learn to say affirmations about your passions and watch how many doors open in your direction.

Truth is, when you boldly affirm your thoughts to yourself and to the Universe, you will get what you want in time. For example, you can say “My body is a healthy temple.” As with any subject that you affirm, your mind is changing and will not accept anything less.
