Yogic Affirmations for Life

Paul M. Jerard Jr.
Dec 29, 2007
During traditional Yoga practices, students were taught to create positive thought with the power of affirmations. Saying, and thinking something, as simple as, "I am happy," can have such a positive impact on your day. Over the centuries, Yoga teachers realized the value of affirmations, because of the way affirmations changed their lives and the lives of their students.

So, how do Yogic affirmations work? Words of encouragement are thought and then spoken. This is much similar to Japa practice (the practice of constantly repeating a mantra). One of the differences between them is that Yogic affirmations are not always spiritual.

Yogic affirmations can help us with self-worth, happiness, relationships, stress, health, or anything else. So, how can a few words of encouragement change your life? Please understand, this formula has been around for thousands of years, yet, most people do not take the action to practice Yogic affirmations.

Yogic affirmations are for noble purposes, only. Remember that negative thoughts create negative energy - becoming volatile and self-destructive. Therefore, Yogic affirmations are to be practiced only for the common good.

Here is how it works: You create and write down your realistic positive affirmation. It must be something believable, and it cannot contain any kind of negative thought. Say it to yourself, continue to think it, and meditate upon it. You will then positively act upon it, when the opportunity arises.

Finally, through daily practice, you have begun to make the affirmation become reality. So, how do you do it? Below are some examples of positive Yogic affirmations.

About Happiness: My happiness comes from within, and I will smile even in the face of adversity. I will laugh often, but not at anyone's expense. People cannot take my happiness away, unless I give them permission.

About Failures: I will be successful, and I learn from my past mistakes. Solutions can be found in every problem, and I will move forward while focusing on solutions.

About Taking Action: I will wake up every day to take action toward my goal. My goal is a positive inspiration, which endures like an eternal fire.

About Relationships: I will shower loving kindness upon everyone I meet. My family and friends love me. They support my aspirations and always look out for my best interest.

Please note: If you feel you have good ideas, and this results in being constantly ridiculed, it is time to find a new circle of friends or a new company to work for. Most people cannot remain positive when their ideas are constantly undermined.

The number of possible positive Yogic affirmations is infinite. You are only limited by your imagination. Positive thoughts will create positive images of life. This will result in positive visualization, but you must act upon your vision to see it come to fruition.
