Are Afformations For Real?

We have all heard of Affirmations…Yes? How successful are they at moving our personal needle of transformation? A study published in the Journal of Social Cognitive and Affective Neuroscience used MRI to reveal that practising self-affirmation activates the reward centers in our brains. It fires up our neural pathways and makes changes to those areas of the brain that makes us happy and positive.

We are told repeating positive affirmations can help us 

  • control feelings of frustration

  • anger or impatience

  • raise our confidence before an important meeting or presentation

  • overcome bad habits 

  • improve our self-esteem  

  • improve our productivity

    What is an Afformation? Afformations are defined as positive, empowering Self-Talk in question form. Afformations are based on the principle that the subconscious mind responds more effectively to questions than to statements. For example…

Afformation: Why do I see only the best in myself and others?

Why am I so good at seizing opportunities today?

Affirmation: I see the best in myself and others.
I am good at seizing opportunities.

Read these to yourself…say them outloud.
What did you notice?
Which version gave you a tingle as you read it?

Asking your brain questions rather than making statements subconsciously triggers your brain to search for an answer.

Remember- Be careful not to ask yourself disempowering questions, for example, Why don’t I have the best? Should Be- Why do I always have the best outcomes?

Why don’t I accept the best? Should be- Why Do I accept the best in every situation?

Make your Afformations positive.

This will work against reaching your goal of positive life change.

Let me share a few Afformations from Noah St John’s Book- Afformations-The Miracle of Positive Self-Talk.

He recommends saying them, reading them, or speaking them aloud daily and watch your world align with your positive self-talk.
