If you want to change your life, positive affirmations are one of the single, most effective tools that will help you to reshape your thoughts, and start living from a higher version of yourself.
Done correctly, the practice of repeating daily spiritual affirmations will dramatically raise your energy and cement new, more awakened beliefs into your subconscious mind.
In this post, we’ll go through some powerful statements that you can use to advance your spiritual growth, but, before we do, I want to take a moment to review how to use affirmations correctly.
If you are new to the practice, I strongly recommend you read this post first for a complete overview.
How To Use Positive Affirmations To Accelerate Your Spiritual Awakening
Before you begin your practice of affirmations, it’s important to understand that affirmations work according to the energy that they cause you to feel.
The specific phrase or statement you repeat to yourself is far less important than the emotion that the phrase evokes for you.
In order for the affirmation to have a positive impact on your life, you need to make sure that the statement feel good to you. A good affirmation will always cause you to feel:
- Healthy, or
If you do not have a positive response to the affirmation you choose, it’s important to take a few moments to stop, reset your energy, and try again. If it still doesn’t help you to feel positive, choose a new phrase that resonates more with you, and start again.
If you need help choosing affirmations, you may want to try working with what I call the “Three Magic Phrases.”
I Am Affirmations
Now that you understand how these powerful phrases can work, it’s time to get down to using them!
One of the biggest categories of phrases to use are what is known as “I am” affirmations. These affirmations can work on any topic, whether spiritual, financial, romantic, personal, or otherwise.
The basic idea is to state an affirmation using the form: I am ____.
As you repeat the statement consistently, for a few minutes every day, you begin to wire a belief into your subconscious mind that you already have the trait or personal characteristic you want to develop.
Some popular versions of this phrase are:
- I am well.
- I am abundant.
- I am kind.
- I am successful.
- I am healthy.
Remember that the most important part of the phrase you choose is not the specifc word you use, but the emotion it causes you to feel.
For this reason, it helps to pick traits that are general, rather than specific. This is because it is easier to believe the more general phrase than a single, specific idea you want to manifest for yourself.
If your focus is on developing your spiritual side, I recommend you choose words that you associate with highly spiritual or enlightened individuals.
For example, you might say:
- I am love.
- I am peace.
- I am divinely loved.
- I am connected to All That Is.
- I am God.
To take your practice a step further, you might even leave off any descriptor at all, and simply repeat the phrase: “I am.”
This is one of the ultimate spiritual realizations, and an understanding you can begin to develop for yourself.
Spiritual Affirmations for Prosperity and Success
When you want to manifest prosperity and abundance for yourself, one of the biggest roadblocks many of us have comes down to the way we think about money.
For this reason, you may want to consider leaving the concept of money out of your prosperity affirmations.
Only say something like: “I am a millionaire” or “Financial abundance is flowing to me” if it feels good to you. If (like most people) you feel resistance to money, then you may want to shift your affirmation to an idea like:
- I always have more than I need.
- Every day, I move closer towards my goals.
- The universe has back.
- Everything is always working out for me.
- Success is always available to me.
- I expect something wonderful to happen to me today.
The more that you can dissociate your affirmation from the obstacle or roadblock you feel is holding you back (such as a scarcity mindset, for example), the more powerful the affirmations will be for you…even if they only appear to be indirectly related to the prosperity you seek.

Daily Affirmations for Spiritual Healing
Lastly, if you are looking to cultivate a sense of spiritual healing and personal well-being, you might consider one of the following ideas for your daily affirmation:
- I value and honor my boundaries
- I am at the epitome of health and strength
- I see myself as everything. I love myself as everyone.
- I fully trust that others do know what is best for them
- I pay attention to my inner callings and apply my own uniqueness to everything I undertake
- I forgive myself for every time I chose to withhold love from myself
- I choose to shine my light brightly I am allowed to take up space
- My work is needed in this world
- I am powerful
Practice, Practice Practice
Whatever affirmations you choose, and whatever subject you wish to improve or circumstance you wish to manifest in your life, I encourage you to have patience.
The key to a successful spiritual affirmation is consistency. Practice your phrases daily, and, as you practice them, give yourself space to believe that they are true.
The stronger your faith, the more you believe in your own ability to manifest the life you choose, the faster and easier it will come to you.
