There are a lot of varying view points out there about affirmations. Do they work? Are they a waste? Do they possibly even make things worse? Honestly, I think they work if you think they will. However a lot of people don’t. That said, I am a big fan of “I am” affirmations.
An “I am” statement used as an affirmation is very simple. The subconscious is trained to respond to the words I am. We think them all the time. Those words form the very construct of our self identity. I am fat. I am lovable. I am successful. I am lonely. Each of those statements are very powerful and absolute. We are what we think we are. The minute an “I am” statement is activated, it becomes the truth, at least inside, and most likely outside also.
