How do you affirm a black child?

We live in a society where black children are growing up being attacked by many factors that are not necessarily apparent to us. T

These attacks leave them emotionally and mentally scarred.

Here are a few ways you can introduce affirmations to a child on a day to day basis:

  1. write them on notes and place them around the house
  2. pack these notes into their school bags or journals
  3. work with them to create a vision board
  4. practice with them daily
  5. send them a text message at the start and end of the week

How to Use Affirmations Effectively?

  • Identify the negative thoughts that you wish to get rid of or something that you wish to manifest. Affirmations work in both scenarios, but you need to be clear about what you want. This post about learning how to write affirmations might help you out.
  • Use the following list as a source of inspiration and guidance. You may use any affirmation as it is, or modify it to make it your own. The key thing here is that the affirmations MUST resonate with you and is a statement you truly believe in.
  • Pick out at least 2 affirmations and start using them. 
  • Begin a routine of practicing at least twice a day of reciting the affirmations with each session lasting 3-5 minutes. Repeat each one 10-15 times daily. You can do this in front of a mirror, speak out loud, or do it in your mind. Do not skip any sessions. I usually do this each morning when I wake and before I go to bed.
  • Download and print out your own affirmations worksheet below to use as a guide for manifestation. Stick it on your mirror/journal/vision board, or anywhere you can easily access it throughout the day so that it can serve as a constant reminder to you. 
  • Alternatively, you can check out our Daily Positive Affirmations Cards which are designed and organized for you. All you need to do is print them and take them everywhere you go!
  • Be patient! It usually takes a month or so to see changes.
