We tend to want to shrink away from change, to avoid its lessons and the chaos it might unleash. If we do, the lessons will just come back around again in another form. These affirmations for change can help us embrace our experiences and grow with a little more grace, hope, and joy in each step.
“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old, but on building the new.” — Dan Millman, Way of the Peaceful Warrior
When the winds of change blow, don’t build walls around your heart—build windmills and let yourself go with the flow and work in unison with the universe. Fighting change doesn’t work, but working with change allows us to grow into truer versions of ourselves.
We can either hold on so tightly that we can’t embrace anything new, or we can learn to loosen our grip and enjoy the fullness of life.
Without change, there would be no beginnings, but if we constantly affirm that change is scary, bad, and painful, that’s what change becomes for us. We can’t even see the beauty in these beginnings.
All affirmations, when repeated over and over, are powerful affirmations. They’re messengers of the truth we decide to live in—we get to decide whether change is good or bad for us.That which we constantly affirm becomes true for us. — Louise Hay Click To Tweet
By repeating positive affirmations for change, over and over, you’ll be planting new seeds in the fertile soil of your subconscious mind. This is how the words you speak to yourself manifest in other areas of your life; what you do, and how you live, is an extension of what you believe.
How might you live if you believed that life was a gift, that your conscious direction of your mind was a miraculous expression of the gift of being alive? Would it be natural to appreciate the air you breathe or the changes you see in response to your focused attention? Would you give more weight to your blessings than you do your burdens?
Repeat these affirmations ten times during the day. You can also write the affirmation ten times a day, if you’re determined to experience a shift. Do this for at least a month, or until positive changes take place.
If doubts, fears, or negative thoughts come up, recognize them for what they are: old beliefs that want to stick around. You don’t need them anymore. You’re following a new path, one that leads you to greater joy, deeper peace, and love. If you need to adjust any of the wording to help it make sense for your particular needs, feel free.
Be sure your statements are in the present moment, and that they’re believable to you (that’s how they work).
Each message is a call for more joy in your experiences, more peace within yourself, and more hope in each new beginning.
7 Powerful Affirmations for Change in Every Season of Your Life
1. I am supported.
I feel emotionally supported by life itself. In this feeling state, I can release all fears and remember that I am loved. I remember that at my core, I am love. I can release the past experiences that have hurt me, and look upon them with grace and forgiveness.
I am willing to trust the process of life now. Life helps me in expected and unexpected ways. Life is for me, and I’m willing to see that.
2. In any given moment, I can return to peace.
I can tap into a wellspring of inner peace and joy in any given moment. In any given moment, I am granted the opportunity to change the way I experience my experiences. In any given moment, life gives me a reason to be grateful, to smile, and to celebrate being alive.
When I choose to experience the sweetness of life, a light appears in the darkness and potential blossoms from uncertainty. I choose thoughts that support optimism.
3. I am learning to be more giving and forgiving.
I acknowledge that we are each asking for love in various ways, and we’re all always doing the best we can with what we have and know. Though I may not understand someone’s path, I can still practice compassion and live my pathway in greater love.
I am willing to forgive other people, challenging circumstances, and painful experiences. In each difficulty, I am asked to strengthen my willingness to give and to forgive.“What I like most about change is that it’s a synonym for hope.” – Linda Ellerbee Click To Tweet
4. I want to experience it all.
I choose thoughts that make me feel comfortable with growing older and getting to experience something new. I marvel at the miracle of life in all its various stages, each bringing with it its own wonders not to be taken for granted. There will be more highs and more lows, but such is the natural wonder of being a human.
Whatever is coming my way, I am willing to embrace it as if I had invited it here myself. I can learn something from everything.
5. I am secure and safe being who I am.
I choose thoughts that allow me to express my truth and creativity. If I want people to love me for who I am, I must first take the mask off. I deserve to live a life that feels like my own, so I let myself slowly unravel all the labels that are not really me
I recognize that the fear of authentic expression doesn’t reflect my truest and highest self. I reflect upon my truest and highest self, and in doing so I allow myself to be who I am in every situation.
6. I am equipped with the power to change my life.
My mind houses the very thoughts that can spark positive change. I choose thoughts which enable me to use my internal power wisely. I willingly turn to acknowledge other viewpoints and other ways of doing things, for my mind is flexible. I can bend and stretch and always come back to my center.“Change your thoughts and you change your world.” – Norman Vincent Peale Click To Tweet
7. My life is constantly being made new.
I am not damaged, broken, or abandoned. I am healing. I am rediscovering myself, and I’m starting over. I accept unexpected happiness into my life with a renewed sense of hope that things do not always go as I plan, because I am being guided to something better.
I am meant to be where I am, experiencing life in new ways all the time so that I can grow toward love, forgiveness, and peace. When I struggle to hold on tightly to what I know, I am encouraged to release my resistance to possibility.
There is grace in trust, and peace in release.
