What are Affirmations and How Do They Work?
The power of affirmations to positively change a habit or a belief has been proven hundreds of thousands of times by at least that many people in the past 100 years (and no doubt for much longer than that, but who’s counting?)
According MindPowerPlus.com, a popular website promoting the use of positive affirmations, “The easiest way to change and improve the quality of your life is to change or improve your perception of yourself. This can all be accomplished with powerful affirmations that can quiet negative thought patterns and discipline your mind.”
If positive Affirmations work that well and that easily, why aren’t we all repeating them when we really want to make serious changes?
There is no single answer to that question. A couple of reasons that are commonly expressed are that repeating the same affirmation over and over again is boring; and another is that it is difficult for most people to believe that a simple positive statement, even if it is repeated consistently and often, could possibly make a really measurable difference. It just seems too simple.
Affirmations are simple tools, which are free and available to anyone, anytime, anywhere; in a peaceful garden, in a crowded room, in the middle of a meeting or on your way to the hospital in an ambulance. And they absolutely do work if you work with them. It is helpful however, if you are attempting to change a major belief about yourself, if you can enter into the practice with at least a strong hope that they will work for you, even if you may start the practice with some doubts.
Our 12, Spirit Fed Affirmations are listed below, absolutely free, with instructions about how to use them. Hundreds of lives have been changed by using these Affirmations - for example:"
"I've been saying the affirmations daily. first thing when I get up and at night when I go to bed. I have received the most wonderful job with great benefits. My back yard has grass again, and I got a call yesterday from someone who might want to buy my villa." Becky – Palm Harbor, FL

Creative Ways to Make the 12 x 12 x 12 practice work for you.
Spiritual Awakening Students have been very creative in finding ways to make sure they repeat their 12 Affirmations 12 times a day for 12 weeks.
One student, who enjoyed swimming laps for her daily exercise, repeated a set of Affirmations each time she swam a lap.
Another, who walked to work every morning repeated a set of 12 at the start of each new city block.
Many have reported that they use the time in which they are stopped at traffic lights or have to stand in line at the bank or super market to repeat their affirmations.
Our favorite was the self-proclaimed "couch potato", who muted his television whenever a commercial came on and repeated a round or two of Affirmations while he waited for regular programming to begin.
If you set an intention to complete the 12 x 12 x 12 - you will find a way that works for you - and you will be delighted with the results.
