At Unity Vancouver Island we use Positive Affirmations
to Create a Happier Life

Aren't ALL affirmations positive?  The word implies this; to affirm is to positively state.  But many of us positively state negative things.  How often have you told yourself (or been told) that you aren't strong enough or popular enough or creative enough or assertive enough or compliant enough.  Those are negative affirmations and our subconscious mind will respond to them just as much as to positive ones.  Thoughts that we think repeatedly tend to carve a little channel in our minds so that all our thoughts tend to take that easy route - just like water conforms to the river bed.  We must divert our thoughts by repeatedly thinking positive thoughts about ourselves, about others and about our world.

This is the very basic teaching of New Thought and of Unity Vancouver Island; our thoughts are creative, even the thoughts we don't realize we're thinking. Our thoughts are creative, as our are beliefs, intentions and expectations

Use daily affirmations to
Help overcome stress, anxiety and self-doubt
Build self-esteem, self-love and belief in yourself
Attract love, success and prosperity

Affirmations are an effective way to consciously use The Law of Attraction; what we focus on, we not only attract into our lives, but we are attracted to that which we focus upon.

How to Write an Effective Affirmation

A positively stated affirmation follows the 3 P's Possible, Plausible, Probable

Make it Personal   It really is all about you.  You are the only one who can make changes in your life and you are, ultimately, the only thing you can change.  If your affirmation insists on being about somebody else, have it be about your response to somebody else.  Use I am statements. 

Make it Present  In the physical, material world, there is time and space.  On the Spiritual plane, the plan of Mind, there is only the eternal Now. So state your affirmations in the present tense, as already so.   Include the word now in your affirmation.

Make it Positive  Here's another set of 3 P's:  Possible, Plausible, Probable.  Make your affirmation believable; otherwise that little "voice-under" will say, "oh, yeah? Who do you think you're kidding?"  Take it in steps if necessary.  So if you can't really buy into "I am a strong, powerful, independent woman" start with 'Today I grow stronger, more powerful and more independent."
