Affirmations are one of the simplest and most powerful things we can do to change the quality of our lives, and to create the things we want.
Affirmations are the force of creation. Every thought has a counterpart in a word or sound; the word and the thought are inseparable. The external part of a thing is what we may call the thought.
The same thought may be expressed by different words or sounds. Though the sounds vary, yet the relation between the sound and the thoughts is a natural one.
The power of affirmations can be stated very simply: Affirmations are the force of creation. For AUM being the sound symbol of Supreme Reality, it is considered to be the first vibration as sound emanating at the beginning of creation.
“In the beginning was the word….”(John 1:10) To affirm means to make firm. There is very little mystery about how and why affirmations work, once the principle is understood.
An affirmation is simply a spoken declaration, in the present tense, which creates a desired reality. To understand how an affirmation has the power to create something, we must first understand how creation works.
Every thought and every word – positive or negative – is an affirmation, and is creating the reality of the affirmation.
