Metaphysically, affirmations affect the universal consciousness that is spirit. When you think them, you change your body's energy field, which affects the energy field that is universal consciousness. And when you speak them, you emit a sound wave that travels through the air and interacts with the delicate dynamic of the universe. Remember that a thought is an inner activity, while speech has an outward effect. This is why it's so important to speak your positive thoughts. The universal consciousness will respond in kind, so you should be aware of what thoughts and affirmations you are sending out into the energy field that is shared by all. Affirm the very best about yourself and your life. And when you say affirmations, make yourself believe what you are saying -- that is the key to affirming speech into reality. Here are eight empowering affirmations to fortify self-love:
Today, I am met with unexpected joys and welcome opportunities. Today is the beginning of a brand new cycle of positivity.
