Have any of you used daily or regular affirmations – whether spiritually-based or otherwise – to positive effect?

Whether they were in the form of gratitude, ambitions, or anything else – and whether they were written, spoken, or just consciously thought out.

If you don’t mind, please share your experiences here. I’d love to hear your stories.

    • Wslm. Short, powerful statements. When you say them or think them or even hear them, they supposedly become the thoughts that influence your reality.

      • So many. I lost count. Especially certain ayats from the Quran or certain thoughts from pious people. The effect of it was for that time, that moment. Once in itikhaaf, I came to this ayah in surah Yusuf. It affected me so badly that I couldn’t move past that ayah. I just broke down at that point. So I called moulana Rahmatullahi alai and he took my call. Even when I tried to recite the ayah, I just cried. Moulana helped me through it. I think at that point of life, it really applied to my state of mind. I alhhmdilillah

      • It affected me strongly and it was positive. Sometimes one seeks answers from Allah Ta’ala to certain situations in life.

And the connection just gets stronger as time passes

  1. I keep a journal through which I talk to God and all that I say and ask and praise of him is positive. Not complaints. I also have made a choice to hear this side of my thoughts and ignore the rest, thoughts that see the good in each situation and encourage patience and optimism.
