2. Design an affirmation routine
Explore your preferred way to affirm yourself. Remember, it’s what works for you, so that could mean a different method each day. It doesn’t matter how you do it as long as you spend time mindfully feeding yourself positivity.
Ideas for routines:
- Read the card then sit or lay down in quiet meditation
- Use the card as a journal prompt and write your thoughts about it down
- Write down the unhealthy thoughts that attack you when you read the cards and pray against them
- Repeat the card to yourself through the day and before bed
- Bring the card or entire deck with you daily and read it as necessary
- Discuss the card with a friend or mentor
- Use the card as inspiration to take meaning steps towards a goal or desire
- Sit with your partner and/or children and discuss a daily or weekly affirmation together for bonding and group growth
3. Choose a card daily or weekly
Choose a card each day or week. You can pick the card randomly or deliberately. Also, feel free to choose more than one if you wish. The goal is to think deeply about the topic on your selected card.
For example, your affirmation card might say: “I am worthy of respect and love.”
Throughout the week, consider questions such as: What does respect mean to me? How do I want to be loved? Who makes me feel respected and loved? Do most people respect me? Why do I feel disrespected and unloved?
Take time to fully explore how the affirmation applies to your life and how you can apply it to your behavior and expectations of others.
What is the purpose of affirmation cards?
The ultimate goal of an affirmation card is to inspire, motivate, and encourage you to live a meaningful life.
Remove unhealthy thoughts
It’s human nature to feel defeated, fearful, unmotivated, unworthy, and weak occasionally. Fortunately, using affirmation cards can help you remove thoughts that don’t serve you. They help you rewire your brain by changing negative thought processes to healthy thought processes.
For instance, what is something that you really want? Do you feel that it’s out of reach? Do you think you’re worthy of it? If you received it would you fear losing it?
In that example, you would rewire your brain to think positively by affirming yourself that you can reach your goals, you are worthy of your goals, and you won’t fail if you aim for your goals.
Manifest your goals with affirmations
You were created with dreams, goals, and visions that serve a purpose larger than you. Affirmations will help you believe it’s your destiny to manifest all God has called you to be.
Life is filled with setbacks, obstacles, and disappointments. However, through these difficulties you can emerge even stronger and with clearer goals.
How do affirmation cards for adults help with manifesting goals? Affirmations cards will remind you to get back up again after every mistake, failure, and loss. Why? Because if you’re still alive, there is so much beauty for you to experience and share with the world.
