An affirmation is a declaration that something is true.  When you make this declaration, your subconscious believes it is true.  If you repeat an affirmative over and over again, it will manifest as truth in your life.  Remember that a thought is something tangible. Thoughts that you send out into the universe eventually reappear in your own life.

You may use affirmations not only during prayer and meditation but also to maintain a positive state of mind when doubts and fears panic your mind.  Keep repeating the affirmation to yourself until you are calm again.
