Let’s get started.
Let’s first know, what are Affirmations?
Affirmations are the positive statement that you verbally say out loud that influence the subconscious mind. So in turn, they influence our thinking patterns, habits, behavior, and environment.
They’re about qualities and beliefs people want to embody.
What is Mirror Work?
Mirror Work involves talking to yourself in the mirror. Looking into your eyes and making positive statements about yourself can strengthen the impact of affirmations.
Mirror reflects back to us the true feelings we have about ourselves.
If you are not sure, think about how you use mirror work already.
People speak to themselves in autopilot when they look in the mirror. Mostly, they do so to tell themselves they’re not good enough; the opposite of a positive affirmation. No doubt, you silently, if not out loud, talk to your reflection at times.
If you do not like your appearance, you probably use negative or disparaging words to reinforce the idea. You either criticize yourself or make fun of yourself and gradually it becomes a habit.
Negative thoughts embed themselves in your mind when you repeat them often.
The same is true if you look at yourself while saying a positive statement.
Let’s learn the Mirror Technique by Joining Affirmations step by step below.
Grab a mirror. I prefer a small one which is easy to handle and can do the practice with it anytime and anywhere.
Make sure you are alone so that you won’t be disturbed by others.
Now, just take a look at what you see in the mirror without judgment.
Take three deep breaths.
Give a smile to you.
Get closer to the mirror so you can look straight into eyes.
Look into your eyes and say by your name, for example here I am sharing what I say when I do mirror work.
