I was just sitting here listening to some RUSH blowing off some steam from the week. Closer To The Heart which has got to be one of the greatest songs ever written in my opinion of course. It really got to me.

For the last year Hell, maybe longer. I have been on a mission to break myself away and out of this traditional work force that I truly believe is getting ready to crash.

Through this journey I have been up, boy have I been down. It’s a struggle to stay positive when you and you alone are the only one who really believes in what your doing.

That is why I find Positive affirmations and incantations to very up lifting and helpful to keep me moving forward when everything seems to be crashing in around me.

So, I thought that I would share with you my way writing my very own personalized positive affirmations and where and how I keep them with me so that I can repeat them throughout the day.

Big Picture Strategy For Writing Effective Positive Affirmations Using The 6 P’s:
* Possible
* Power/Strength
* Present
* Personal
* Positive
* Passion/Emotion/incantations


  • You must believe that your confirmation is possible. You don’t necessarily have to believe it 100%, but you should at least reasonably believe that it is possible and reasonable.


  • Your affirmations must be within the control of you. Affirmations are what we tell our own brains to take action.
  • Confirming that It will not rain on your wedding day or that your boyfriend will no longer be Critical is ineffective because they are beyond your control.
  • Instead, affirm that you will enjoy your wedding regardless of the weather, or that you will communicate openly and honestly about how you feel and receive constructive criticism with grace.


  • Write affirmations in the present tense — as if it were happening now. Use words like “am” instead of “want.”


  • Use ‘I’ statements and once again keep your affirmations focused On yourself, not on things outside yourself.


  • Focus on what you want, not what you DO NOT want. Avoid Words like ‘not’ and ‘can’t’. For example, instead of saying “I don’t yell at my Kids,” say “I’m talking constructively and lovingly to my kids.”


  • The most important ingredient for effective affirmations is to FEEL It! The emotional response to your affirmation is what enables the brain to create new threads.

I have used personal positive affirmations everyday for the last 20 years. If you’ve followed me for awhile you know that positive thinking and using the power of positive affirmations helped me to get off the streets and start building a more bright, sober and productive future for myself.

This is why the use of affirmations, incantations and positive-thinking are powerful. And finally, repeat your confirmations consistently. This means that you have to repeat them often and for a long period. Write them down and place them so that they’re visible somewhere in your house.

Program an alarm to remind you to say it at specific times of the day. Keep a copy of it in your phone or wallet. And commit to reviewing them daily for at least 30 days.

Now that you understand the science behind affirmations, incantations and positive-thinking and the keys to making them effective, you have the power to rewire your brain!
