The Power of Affirmations

We do a lot of self-talk. The constant chatter in our minds is constant. From “oh, I should not forget to buy this” or “my meeting did not go well”, “why am I am so forgetful?” to “I should have said that.” Underneath the obvious voice lie limiting beliefs about ourselves.

Most of us have this inner dialogue inside of us. All this self-talk are basically affirmations as they affirm what we experience, see or believe. When we start to talk differently to ourselves, in a more positive way — and as a result, affirming the positive — we then also start to act from this place and can experience greater happiness, clarity and well-being. This is the power of our thoughts. Lots of books have been written about the power of our thoughts, and there is plenty of science-backed research showing the power our mind holds over us.

What is a typical affirmation?

A typical affirmation is a sentence that starts with “I…”, followed by something you want to confirm and affirm in yourself to either induce a positive way of living or avoid negative situations from happening again. We can make ourselves stronger with affirmations. Affirmations become more powerful the more repeat them. The repetition engrains the affirmation in our thoughts, our mind and then finally, in our behavior.

There are many ways we can integrate affirmations in our lives — from repeating them throughout our day, making an affirmation our computer login password, or hanging a poster on our wall.

Here are some examples of some popular affirmations:
I am good enough
I am strong
I am loving and kind
I am worthy
I am successful
I can do this
I am courageous
I am safe
I choose to be happy and healthy
I decide how I feel and will choose for myself

Create your own affirmation, tailored to YOUR life

Affirmations can be anything we want them to be – and can be long, or short. Often affirmations work with specific themes in our lives. They can address how we ground, how we feel our joy for life, how we make decisions, the love and success we want in our lives, how we speak our truth and our connection to others, the earth or the sky.

What limiting beliefs do you have about yourself that you’d like to change? What goals do you have for yourself – in different areas of your life? What specific feelings do you want more of in your life? It can be helpful to take a few minutes to note these down, in a journal and create a daily practice of reading, writing or saying these out loud.

To further help you on your journey of discovering affirmations, at Flower of Sound we use and incorporate affirmations in some of our tracks. We also add specific healing frequencies and sound healing techniques to amplify the effect of the affirmations. Our first affirmation track will soon be released using both a calming, meditative voice as well as a whispering voice (ASMR).

Also Tre is the third single of Collateral Nature’s Morning Mars album (Breathe! Robot (1), Morning Mars (2) and now Tre (3)). In this blog we explore the deeper meaning of the number 3.

The inspiration of Tre came from the 3 instruments that are used to create the song: “Written in one go with a precise bass line in mind, the song is as simple as it is hypnotic. It supports the evolution of the Rhodes piano and the drums that draw you into the psychedelic soul of the track.” Claudio Vittori produced and composed the song.
