Accepting Yourself Affirmations

Affirmations can be, for some, compared to prayer or meditation. It's a technique that lets you 'talk' to your higher self, to your spirit or God and ask for something specific for yourself or for others. Accepting yourself affirmations are pretty self explanatory, namely a way to cope with your self esteem problems. Using such affirmations can help you feel better about yourself and increase self esteem or confidence, thus taking control of your own life.

Affirmations change the negative thoughts you have about yourself to positive ones and after practicing them for a while you will become more assertive, self-confident, and happier. When you accept yourself as the person you are, you also learn to be kinder and more accepting of those around you. You realize that everything doesn't revolve around you and your needs. Thus, practicing affirmations to increase your self esteem gives you an insight on how your actions ripple down to affect those you come in contact with, which in turn enables you to build better and healthier relationships. Self esteem affirmations helps you understand that others can love you and that you can love others as they are without judgment and without receiving something in return.

There are various ways to perform affirmation exercises; some prefer to just think that while some like to say the affirmation out loud or listen to affirmation tapes or CD's to make it more real. If you create your own affirmations you should write them down, as seeing them in actual printed (just to see them stated in clear) text can help.

If you are new to the affirmation technique you should,

- write down your affirmations for increasing your self confidence
- read them out load and record them
- listen to the tape (and listen to it) through ear phones as often as possible for one week.

After you're finished, ask yourself, "Am I more self confident now than I was one week ago?" The answer may surprise you.
