Five categories of affirmations support you in manifesting powerful change. These five categories or types of affirmations have emerged from my consulting work with clients and workshop participants. You may work with affirmations in every category concurrently, or you may focus on a different category each day or each week. It is important that affirmations you select resonate with you, that is, that they feel natural and appropriate. In order to experience this resonance, you may need to change words in the ones listed here as examples, or let these inspire you to create ones you prefer, or develop your own from scratch.

Affirmations can be used to create a continuous flow of positive thoughts into your subconscious mind, thereby, helping you create a new life. From the time you wake in the morning your mind is on constant chatter with thousands of thoughts, all day long. Did you know your thoughts are on automatic pilot? You might be interested to learn most of these automatic thoughts are totally ignored by your conscious mind.
These thoughts, which I prefer to label as your "Chatterbox", are most likely negative in nature, compliments of your childhood experiences. The negative Chatterbox was birthed through well-meaning adults trying to conform you into the little person they wanted you to become. Unfortunately, most baby boomers were programmed through unhealthy tactics such as shaming, belittling, anger and/or corporal punishment. In short, we learned to live in our own private world that involved beating up on ourselves, using thousands of negative thoughts per day.
