The mind is a powerful tool that can be used to manifest thoughts into reality. As the old saying goes – you are what you think.

What’s happening in your life now – is a result of your thoughts. But thoughts alone can’t solely improve your life. You must take your thoughts and turn them into reality. How? By literally speaking them into existence.

One way to do that is through self-talk filled with positive affirmations. Affirmations are words that uplift your thoughts. By removing negative thoughts and speaking confidently, you allow the creation and manifestation of all things positive and optimistic.

When you speak positive affirmations aloud, you rewire your mind to believe that your words are universal truths. You also raise the “feel good levels” in your body, causing your brain to create new neural networks that aid positive thinking.

Verbal affirmations give you the courage to believe in yourself, improve your overall well-being, and cultivate a deeper sense of self-love.

In life, there is only one relationship that you have to consistently maintain – and it’s with yourself. Appreciating and accepting yourself gives you the power to be anything you can dream of being. It helps you become more influential in your own life, and helps you stay in the right frame of mind to help you reach your goals.

To practice self-love through affirmations, wake up each morning and look into the mirror. Stare at the reflection looking back at you and declare that you are a worthy being, created to live a life filled with love and happiness. Say aloud, “I am a unique and special person deserving of love and respect.” Each time you speak these words, you manifest self love and appreciation into your life.

Everything you speak aloud will influence your life in some way. Understanding the power of your words can help you cultivate an abundance of positivity which will then flow into your life. All words have meaning, so try to replace negative words with positive ones and affirm your path and value in this world. Remove words of self-doubt and embrace being different and uniquely made.

Here are 20 uplifting affirmations that will help you manifest self-love in your life:
