How To Use Affirmation Cards
Affirmation cards are a little deck of cards, larger than a stack of playing cards, and are colorfully illustrated as well. Louise Hay has quite a few affirmation cards to choose from. On each card is a different affirmation or positive statement ready to be integrated into your self-dialogue.
Wake Up To Love
There are quite a few ways to use them. First, you can use the cards in the morning and pull one to incorporate in your morning practice. Whether you have been practicing meditation, yoga, or journaling as a morning practice you can incorporate affirmations cards every morning.
If you have not begun a morning practice you can use Louise Hay’s morning gratitude meditation to get started. The benefit of incorporating these cards in the morning is to start your day on a positive note and to tune your vibration to be a match to the affirmations.
Write It Into Existence
Another way you can use these cards is by incorporating them into journaling. This can be done by repetitively writing down the affirmation on the card you pulled. This is a powerful way to work with the law of attraction as writing your affirmation on paper will bring it directly into a physical form
You can write the statement in 3 different forms. Those forms would be
- first person (the affirmation) I am…
- second person (the affirmation) you are…
- third person (the affirmation) your name is…
The benefit of this specific practice is to ingrain the perspective in three different viewpoints. This can help you more wholeheartedly connect to the affirmation as well as find any possible please you feel resistance in.
Now one of the best ways to use Louise Hay’s affirmation cards is to use them with mirror work. This means saying them directly to your reflection. Learn more about what mirror work is here and the benefit to it.
