disclaimer: Affirmations are not an end all be all. They are a supplementary healing tool, powerfully used in combination with your other health care/self care practices. Affirmations are not effective if you really do not believe what they are saying, if this is the case it is important to address these triggers and integrate what needs to be resolved.
Like meditation, medications, or food-different types will work differently for different people. Try different affirmations tapes (5 different examples linked below) to find what feels right to you!
HOW Affirmations Work
Affirmations are one of my personal favorite methods for subconscious programming. Repetition is key. You will observe this will any good advertising/branding strategy. The product/service/brand is stated numerous times often attached to a melody to engrain the advertisers message in your mind. I had a teacher who always said you need to hear something 8 times to remember it. To give you another example of how important repetition is, beliefs are simply repeated thoughts.
The most powerful statement that you can make is "I am.....(fill in the blank). Whatever you choose to say after that is TRUE. No matter what you say the universe responds by making it true for you. Our words are much much powerful than we typically perceive.

WHY Affirmations Work
Affirmations work similar to hypnotic suggestions. As mentioned above all beliefs are just repeated thoughts therefore affirmations are effective because by listening to them enough they become beliefs. You will likely will not notice anything if you do not consistently listen to affirmations. However with regular listening you will notice the affirmations float through your mind as positive self-talk, affirming your worth.
