Powerful Affirmations For Shifting to Your Desired Reality

Try these daily affirmations to focus your subconscious mind and support shifting to your Desired Reality.

What are Reality Shifting Affirmations?

Law of Attraction affirmations are positive statements designed to train your unconscious mind to have faith and believe an idea.

So reality shifting affirmations are a list of affirmations specifically designed to foster a belief in your ability to shift to your desired reality.

Affirmations typically take the form of ‘I am’ statements, as this is generally accepted to be the most powerful format for them to take, however they can be phrased in other ways too. You will find examples of both below.

How Do Reality Shifting Affirmations Work?

Reality shifting affirmations are designed with shifting in mind, but all affirmations essentially work in the same powerful way, and it all comes down to how the brain works.

When we utilise different affirmations, we are effectively overwriting limiting beliefs.

We each have a set of beliefs, which we acquire through life based on our experiences and the influences of those around us. 

Some of these beliefs will be valid and useful, but unfortunately many are steeped in self-doubt, and can prevent us from reaching our full potential. Known as limiting beliefs, these ideas manifest as negative thoughts, or self-talk, disempowering us and holding us back.

When we utilise different affirmations, we are effectively overwriting those limiting beliefs and rewiring our brains to a more positive mindset. This creates a noticeable change in attitude, and ultimately attracting more positive things into our lives.

How Do You Use Shifting Affirmations?

Affirmations are a big part of shifting and are frequently included as an important step in a variety of different methods including the Raven method, Sunni method, and Train method.

Shifting affirmations can also be used in the shower or whilst journaling.

That said, shifting methods are fairly flexible, so even those which do not call for affirmations can be adapted should you wish to include them. 

For example, they could easily be added in place of or between counting in the Julia method, which is said to be one of the easiest shifting methods for the average person.

Shifting affirmations can also be used at other times of the day than when actively attempting to shift. 

The message being affirmed lays new neural pathways to promote a more positive mindset.

You might like to try using shifting affirmations whilst driving, in the shower, or as part of a daily journaling practice.

Just like any other affirmations, they work most effectively for shifting when practiced regularly. 

The theory is that the frequency of the positive message being affirmed essentially drowns out any negative form of self-talk, and ultimately lays new neural pathways which promote the belief you are aiming to establish.

If you’re interested in trying the power of affirmations to help you in your shifting journey, you may also be keen to explore subliminals and white noise, and binaural beats which are also said to benefit the shifting process.

Tips for Creating Effective Affirmations for Shifting

You’re welcome to borrow or adapt the above list of powerful affirmations for shifting, but if you’re planning to write your own affirmations, here are a few tips to help you make them as effective as possible.

  1. Write in the present tense – This helps ‘trick’ the brain into believing the statement is already true, which has an enormously beneficial influence.
  2. Use ‘I am’ statements – Affirmations beginning with ‘I am’ are popular because they‘re thought to be super effective, although you can use variations if you wish.
  3. Use positive language – Write I am as opposed to I am not; if necessary rewrite your affirmation to make it positive. 
  4. Be specific – Just like with SMART goals, getting clear and intentional will help to make your affirmations more effective.

What the Science Says

While affirmations definitely have legitimate value, shifting is a bit more subjective.

Our minds are powerful, with the capability to create rich inner worlds.

In terms of whether we can actually shift realities, there’s no evidence to support this idea. 

However, our minds are powerful, with the capability to create rich inner worlds. And of course the quality and depth is something that is not easily measured.

Shifting has been described as a transliminal experience, meaning a susceptibility to psychological material originating in the subconscious. In other words, shifting may simply be an arguably extreme form of escapism.
