Saying Your Affirmations in the Mirror

One of the modern pioneers of affirmations, Louise Hay, has suggested that saying your affirmations in the mirror is a great way to increase their potency. This is true. See if you can look in the mirror while saying a self-love affirmation such as, “I love myself just the way I am.”

This may seem like a silly exercise, but I encourage you to try it. Making eye contact with yourself while affirming yourself is not easy. Many of us are programmed to be self-critical and to see our flaws rather than our gifts. Thus, it is difficult for us to feel truly worthy of the love and support that the universe has to offer.

So try this exercise out. Say a positive statement, look at yourself in the mirror and fully let in the good you are affirming. The law of attraction will bring you that which is your heart’s desire.
