Positive affirmations, are phrases which you repeat to yourself that describe how you want to see yourself. The idea is that when you start saying positive affirmations about yourself, whether they are currently true or not, in a repetitive fashion, they will sink into your subconscious mind, you will begin to believe them, and they will eventually become your reality. By repeating them on a daily basis, they can become a self-fullying prophecy and become true.
Affirmations can help re-wire beliefs or thoughts about ourselves that is not true or keep you in one place that may create feelings of being stuck or unproductive. Saying and repeating affirmations are tools only and cannot take the place of other interventions such as therapy. However they are great messages to have around an art studio or office or creative space as reminders of your creative talents.
