Affirmations have made their way into the mainstream over the last several years. A positive affirmation is a powerful, positive statement or judgment believed to be true. If you take a quick scan of your day, you will likely realize that you constantly affirm things. Although sometimes, your affirmations don’t necessarily work. Today Dr. Tarryn MacCarthy discusses why your affirmations don’t work, shares when they do work and how you can make them work for your benefit. Positive affirmations don’t work because they target the conscious level of your mind but not the unconscious. If what you are trying to affirm is incongruent with a deeply held negative belief, then all that results is an inner struggle.
