Many people use affirmations for motivation and performance. You can find affirmations to enhance everything from athleticism to financial wealth, from leadership to lifestyle. So, I say we can use them in the areas of sex and intimacy!
The internet offers plenty of information about using affirmations as a tool for personal growth, manifestation, and so on. Some people tout the effectiveness of affirmations. Some people say affirmations are useless. And, then there are many sources telling you how to use affirmations. With all of the information out there, how do you know what is right?
Here's my take on all of this: be open-minded and true to yourself. If it works for you - great. If it doesn't, you can move on to something else.
Personally, I like affirmations, and I occasionally use them when I want to transform a limiting belief to a helpful belief. What works for me is saying the affirmations out loud with my hand placed on my heart for three minutes a day for 40 days in a row.
Here are 8 neutral affirmations that support self-empowering beliefs about sex and intimacy. I also created a pdf that you can download, print, and put in a place where you will see the affirmations daily. (It's down there below the affirmations.)
Again, affirmations are not for everyone. And every affirmation does not resonate with every person. Take what works for you, leave what doesn't.
