If you’re struggling with low self-esteem and self-doubt, know that you are not alone.
But also know that self love affirmations are one way that you can tackle this!
As humans we are often far too critical of ourselves, and it’s easy to fall into the habit of negative affirmations without even realizing.
Have you found yourself saying things like “I can’t do that”, “I’m not good enough” or “I am unworthy”? I know I have…
What many people don’t realize is that when we put these negative beliefs out there, all we do is hold ourselves back from living to our true potential.
Not only do we talk ourselves out of exciting opportunities, but we also send messages to the universe that this is the life that we accept for ourselves.
These limiting beliefs are ultimately what hold us back from manifesting the life that we really want for ourselves, and once we get them in our heads it can be a vicious cycle that affects our behaviour and feeds back into the same thought patterns again and again.
Reframe your limiting beliefs for more self love
So what’s the solution? Work to reprogram your belief system by using a combination of techniques, and tackle your behaviour by "acting as if".
When it comes to rewiring your brain, self love affirmations could be what’s needed to switch up your mindset and the vibes you’re putting out into the universe.
By adopting this new mindset, you can begin taking new actions towards the person you want to become, which ultimately reinforces these new, more positive, and self-serving beliefs.
In other words, the more you practice affirmations for self love, the greater your self belief will grow.
And with higher self belief, you can take advantage of more opportunities and align yourself with your highest potential!
How to use positive affirmations for self love
Dedicate some time each day to practice affirming yourself. It's important to make this a part of your everyday routine because it is so easy to fall back into old belief patterns if you don't stay consistent.
My advice would be to add your self love affirmations into an existing part of your routine, like when you brush your teeth or do your makeup or skincare.
This will make it easier to remember to practice them and your affirmations will soon become a natural part of your everyday routine.
My favorite time to practice positive affirmations is in the morning because it sets me up with a positive mindset for the day.
But you can also try saying your self love affirmations right before bed so they can work their magic overnight - the time of day matters way less than just getting them in consistently!
Tip: for an even bigger boost before bed, try recording yourself saying your self love affirmations and play them while you sleep to send the messages straight to your subconscious!
How to get the most out of your self love affirmations
The key to practicing positive affirmations is to really feel them.
Saying them is one thing, but believing them and embodying the energy of them is where the real magic starts to happen.
It will feel uncomfortable at first, sure. When you first start saying your self love affirmations there may be some resistance because you don't actually feel them yet.
That's why I would also recommend doing some limiting belief work to truly work through your historical beliefs, so that it feels a little easier to truly embody your affirmations.

Then over time feeling your affirmations will become more natural as you start to develop more self love and confidence.
Pick a few self love affirmations that you think you need to work on the most and work with them consistently for a period of time.
Then once you think you’ve mastered those areas, you can pick new ones and develop your belief in yourself even further!
