Introduction to Affirmations

Affirmations are a useful method of "programming" your mind to act in a particular way. These affirmations collected from a number of sources can be printed on 3" x 5" index cards and carried with you during the day. Make it a habit to read them through at least in the morning and evening during a quiet time.

Further information on the effectiveness of affirmations as a tool for creativity can be found in Julia Cameron's book The Artist's Way - A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity . This page was updated with some of the affirmations from the earlier part of this book.

If you would like your affirmations printed on clear static cling vinyl that can be posted on windows, mirrors, windshields or PC's, visit the Affirmation (Brainstickers (R)) Web Site. Alternatively, contact Ed Thomas by email.
