Finding great affirmations to live by can be a little tricky.  There are lots of affirmations out there, but not all of them will work for you.  This is because if you affirm something that you don’t believe in, it can actually work against you.

For example, if you were to say something like “I am rich and successful,” but you don’t really feel like you are rich and successful, your vibration probably won’t get any higher-if anything, you’ll feel worse.  This is because by bringing up the subject of money, you will only be reminding yourself that you don’t have much of it.  Since the point of using affirmations is to raise your vibration, it’s wise to find a few great affirmations that will make you feel good no matter what.

Here are a few affirmations that will work for most people, most of the time, so they are good ones to keep in your back pocket for when you’re looking for a lift.  However, it is still wise to use a discerning eye when selecting personal affirmations for regular use.  Stick only to using affirmations that feel good and are true to you.

Slowly read through each affirmation below and pause after each one to note how these statements feel to you. If they feel good, they are great affirmations for you to hold onto and use!
