Positive Thinking Affirmations isn’t a redundant phrase. You see, there’s affirmations, and then there’s positive thinking affirmations. What’s the difference? Read and find out …

Form Versus Function

Turns out, there’s a misunderstanding about the function of affirmations, and this needs to be cleared up before you can get a grasp on the specific nature of positive thinking affirmations.

Affirmations, in and of themselves, aren’t supposed to be used for shifting or lifting your mood. Nope, not at all. Affirmations are only effective, and are meant to be used, to super-charge your positive thoughts and emotions toward quicker manifestation.

Think about it. If you’re stressed, worried or pissed off about something, doesn’t saying an affirmation right then just piss you off? That’s because the energy of the two: your mood and the affirmation, are too far apart to connect.

So the most important thing about using affirmations is that you have to use them when you’re in a positive state of mind.

What if I’m not in a ‘Positive State of Mind’?

Aha! Good question. If you’re not in a positive state of mind, then it’s time to use positive thinking affirmations to help get you there. If you’re continually challenged to think positively in the first place, then these kind of affirmations are ideal for you because they work specifically on shifting your general thought patterns and mental habits from a negative focus to a more positive one.
