Affirmations have been all the rage in the past decade. I mean, don’t we all want to make positive mental assertions about our lives? Wouldn’t it be great to wake up each morning with a word or phrase that gives us just the momentum we need to be the best version of ourselves daily? With the right affirmation, you will be able to do just that! The words we speak have energetic power over our lives. For example, notice the energetic change that takes place in your body when you say the words “I can’t do this!” as opposed to saying “I can do this!” Our energy fluctuates according to our thoughts and the words we speak.

Over a year ago, I started to feel a great momentum in my life, a feeling of energy and excitement all the time. Outwardly, my life had not changed drastically, but I could feel a rush of positivity as if at any moment something great could happen. I wanted to milk the emotion and thought what better time to come up with a positive affirmation, a phrase I could use to express this electric energy I was feeling—words that could solidify the flow of energy. I lightly meditated on the affirmation and one morning I woke to that amazing feeling and heard in my spirit things are happening! For the entire day, wherever I went, I would blurt out, “Things are happening!” Coworkers, family, and friends soon hopped on board feeling the positive momentum of the affirmation. Shortly after, many great things began to happen in my life one after another. Could it have just been happenstance? Absolutely not!

There was a direct correlation between the emotion, the thought, and the manifestation. Verbalizing this phrase was the final piece of the puzzle. If you’ll notice the affirmation is quite general. One may ask, well what things are happening? The answer is, it doesn’t matter. All that matters is that something is happening. This allows me to connect with all the possibilities of expansion available to me at any time. This simple three-word affirmation has truly transformed my life and can certainly transform yours given the proper energy when speaking the words. For affirmations to be powerful and transformative, they should be personal.

Here are a few tips for coming up with your own positive affirmations for living in your power and expansion:

  • Go with something general.

The most powerful affirmations are all inclusive as opposed to situation specific.

  • Keep it short and sweet.

Keep your affirmations short and sweet. String together just a few words that promote a feeling of wellbeing and excitement when you speak them.

  • Use it often.

Your affirmation should be your catchphrase—it should be on the tip of your tongue all the time to be most effective.

With these three tips alone, you are sure to formulate a powerful affirmation! Remember everything is energy, our words have power! So let’s stay positive because THINGS ARE HAPPENING!
