Using affirmations can be a very powerful tool. You can use it in many aspects of your life to achieve certain goals and to ultimately effect the way YOU want to feel. Using affirmations can mirror the world you want to live in.
If you are not sure of what an affirmation is I will explain this now. An affirmation is a statement that you repeat to yourself over and over again until it penetrates into your sub-conscious and becomes a belief.
This is what you do. You can either write your affirmation down or you can just make one up in your head. Think of something that you really want to achieve, or something you really want to feel.
What's important when you make an affirmation is that the words you use are positive words and they reflect the present, not the future. It doesn't matter whether you believe your affirmation or not, because the main goal is that you will believe in it in time. It will become your belief!
Words you want to avoid when making affirmations are: anxious (I know this is what you're trying to get rid of, but anxiety is a negative word and a negative feeling, you don't need to remind yourself of this).
Most people when first learning affirmations feel compelled to make their statement like this: I no longer feel anxious. This is a big NO NO! I repeat DO NOT place any negative words in your affirmations AT ALL. If you do this, it will be affective.
All affirmations should be short and straight to the point. Do not put big lengthy words in your affirmation. This will only clutter and confuse your mind and take much longer to work.
I strongly recommend only concentrating on one affirmation at a time until you receive those results. Some people might disagree with me on this. But I find using only one at a time brings faster results.
It's extremely important that you repeat your affirmation to yourself as often as possible. I usually repeat mine in my head hundreds of times in a day.
Persistence is also very important. You may not get results right away, but do not give up on it. Stick with it, the results will be worth it in the long run.
Here is an example of an affirmation you can use if you suffer from Anxiety & Panic Disorder.
I am strong, I am healthy, I am happy.
