Affirmations are a great tool to add to your manifesting toolbox. Understanding how affirmations work and how to use them in your manifesting process will help you use them correctly.

8 Tips on How To Use Affirmations To Manifest
Many people have tried using affirmations for manifestation and discovered that they don’t work. The reason is that they use them the wrong way.
Our subconscious mind knows us better than we do, so if we try to repeat affirmations we don’t believe, hoping they will turn into reality, our subconscious mind knows we are lying to it and will reject all of our affirmations.
Keep reading what to do about it and how to make your manifestations work!
1. Check-In With Your Body
Your feelings and emotions are your true compass of what you believe in and what you truly desire. No teacher or guru can give you more accurate answers about your path than your own emotions.
Exploring how you feel moment to moment and what feels good to you will help you discover what you truly believe in and desire. This will help you use your affirmations in the right way instead of bulldozing your feelings with affirmations that don’t match your beliefs.
2. Work With Limiting Beliefs
It is natural for us to hold opposing beliefs simultaneously. Some of those beliefs might be in opposition to others. That’s the way our consciousness functions.
Don’t try to deny or suppress the beliefs you feel are not beneficial for your growth and expansion. This will only make them stronger. What you resist persists. Instead, try to observe and explore your beliefs without judgment.
Journaling is an excellent tool for this. You can consider writing morning pages as a tool for self-exploration or use various journaling prompts you can find on Pinterest. When journaling, don’t overthink your answers. Instead, try to be as honest with yourself as possible.
3. Research the Vibration Scale
Everything in the universe is composed of energy, and all thoughts, emotions, and beliefs exist on a vibration scale. Some lower vibrations are shame, guilt, apathy, and fear, while on the opposite end of the spectrum are peace, joy, acceptance, and love.
Your thoughts, beliefs, and behaviors keep you moving upwards and downwards on this scale. Get familiar with the concept and recognize where you are at the moment.
The higher up the scale you move, the stronger your chances of manifesting your desired reality. The lower you go, the more negative experiences you will likely magnetize into your life.
4. Move Up the Vibration Scale
The most effective affirmations are the ones that will help you gradually move upward the vibration scale instead of making huge leaps. Pick up your journal and think of some of those beliefs you have discovered.
Did you discover that you subconsciously don’t feel worthy of achieving your goals?
Did you discover that you are afraid of living a good life because you don’t have the necessary tools or knowledge to manage the desired success level?
How does that feel in your body? What emotion does this belief correlate with?
If you recognize that your belief is vibrating on the level of worry and pessimism, trying to use affirmations on the level of excitement, love and freedom will be useless. Instead, choose affirmations that will be one or a few steps above your current beliefs.
For example, if you currently believe you are weak, don’t bulldoze that by saying: “I am strong.”
Instead, your affirmation can be: “I am growing stronger daily.” This way, your chances of reprograming your subconscious mind will be much stronger.
5. Practice Gratitude
Focusing on what you already have instead of on things you feel you are still lacking will bring more fulfillment and will attract more positive experiences to your life.
When manifesting, always remember that your inner state magnetizes your external reality and not the other way around.
In your gratitude practice, remember that it is not enough to say or write what you are grateful for. You must truly feel it in your body.
6. Repeat Affirmations Daily
Find a time in your daily schedule to fully focus on your affirmations. Doing it as a ritual will help you be fully present with them and give more power to your manifestation.
The best time to do this is either in the evening, right before you fall asleep, or in the morning as soon as you wake up. Your subconscious mind is most open during this time and will be more susceptible to reprogramming your beliefs.
Keep repeating your affirmations in your mind throughout the day as well.
7. Focus Positively Throughout Your Day
Positive focus serves the same purpose gratitude practice does. It will not be helpful if you use affirmations at one time of the day and then go on throughout your day thinking negative thoughts, feeling doubtful if you can truly live the reality you desire.
If you live this way, you are sending mixed signals into the universe about what it is you are trying to manifest. Unfortunately, most people do this throughout their day, unaware that they are sabotaging their goals.
This is like taking two steps forward and right away taking one step back. To prevent this, observe your thoughts throughout the day. The intention for this is similar to the one of your daily gratitude practice.
8. Feel Your Affirmations
Often people mistakenly think of affirmations as things you say. Words are just symbols and a tool we use to describe things. It is the experiences that matter.
To make your affirmations work, you must feel them in your body. Simply saying words will have no impact on your subconscious mind.
Saying affirmations with intention, as if you are planting a seed within your subconscious mind and observing how it is received, watching if any resistance arises or if it is welcomed and integrated in the most effective way to do your affirmations.
Affirmations are some of the most powerful tools you can use when manifesting. However, not just saying them is where their true power lies, but in watching your mind, emotions, and beliefs that they stir up.
If you are trying to manifest a new reality, a reality that seems to you better than your current reality, you have to truly believe it is possible.
We often associate living a good life with many challenges that come when managing it. If you feel resistance, don’t feel deserving, capable, or worthy of your intentions, you will have a more challenging time manifesting.
In this article, you can find all the tools necessary to discover and deal with these challenges. If you commit to following these steps with complete trust, you will open yourself up for miracles to come into your life.
