Powerful Affirmations And Incantations That Will Change Your Life


Affirmations and Incantations

Using affirmations and incantations is one of the most powerful ways to change your life.

If you've seen my new morning ritual video, then you'll know that affirmations and incantations have been a consistent part of my daily routine.  I use them daily to condition my mind and beliefs to move me towards my goals.

All of the classic self-help books talk about the power of affirmations.  The idea behind them is that if you repeatedly say an empowering phrase to yourself again and again, your mind will start to believe it.

The same idea works if you continually say or repeat negative phrases to yourself again and again… your mind believes it and it becomes your new belief system.

Tony Robbins is the first person I know of to talk about incantations.  He says that incantations are more powerful than affirmations, as with incantations you're engaging your physiology and emotions with the empowering phrase.

In the below video, I share with you some of the affirmations and incantations that I say to myself everyday as part of my morning ritual.  I've also included a list of them below, so that you can freely copy and use any that stand out for you if you'd like.

How Do You Come Up With Affirmations And Incantations?

While it can be useful to search online and find a list of affirmations and incantations to copy, I highly recommend that you come up with your own.

I've provided a list below of mine, however they're a list that I've personally created that benefit me specifically.  However, it can be useful to copy and use ones that you've found that resonate with you, as I've done that for myself also.

My strategy for coming up with affirmations and incantations is simple:

1. Write out any negative beliefs or phrases that are limiting you.

For example, you might find yourself say a lot:

“I don't have the time”

“I don't have the money”

“I'm too young”

“I can't put on muscle as a vegetarian”

“I'm tired'

“I'm depressed”

One important thing to note:  Whatever you say “I am” to enough times is what you will become.  So if you keep saying to yourself, “I'm depressed” again and again, then that will be true for you.  It will become your new identity for yourself.  Your identity is a sum of beliefs about who you are.

2. Replace the negative beliefs or phrases with something more positive and empowering.  Often times, this is just the opposite of the negative belief or phrase.

For example, here are some positive replacements for the limiting beliefs mentioned:

“I have all the time in the world.  Time is the only thing that is equal – we all have 24 hours in a day.  I MAKE the time for whatever I'm committed to.”

“I MAKE the money for whatever I'm committed to.  I am resourceful and can always find a way to make more money.  There's money all around me!”

“Youth is energy and charisma!  I have what everyone in the world wants.  Youth is my strongest asset.”

“I can easily put on muscle as a vegetarian!  In fact, it is a easier, faster and healthier way to put on muscle.  Thousands of others have done it, so I can too!”

“I am energetic and full of life!  I can change my state and create energy in my body in any instant.”

“I am happy!  I am in control of how I feel!  I choose to be happy right now.”

By doing these two steps, you will come up with your own list of affirmations and incantations that can support your life.

Anytime you catch yourself saying something negative, limiting or disempowering – use that as an opportunity to create a new affirmation or incantation.

If you have goals of making money online, then create an incantation that can support you with that.

If you have goals of losing weight, then create an incantation for that.

If you want to wake up at 5AM every morning, then create an incantation around that.

It's that easy!

  • Food is construction material for the body. I will become what I eat, as food literally becomes the cells, organs, and tissues of my body.
  • Food is fuel. I will be as energetic as the fuel I put into my bodily engine.
  • Nutritious foods contain everything I need for perfect health.
  • When I feed myself nourishing food on a consistent meal schedule, it stokes my metabolic furnace.
  • It’s okay to eat for enjoyment or social reasons if I do it consciously and mindfully and I stay within the compliance rules and quantity limits I set for myself in advance.
  • I’m totally conscious and aware of my beliefs about food and the reasons I eat.
  • When I feel stressed or depressed, I have alternate ways to cope with those feelings.
  • Healthy food that helps me burn fat and build muscle can be prepared in delicious ways.
  • I realize that food can be one of life’s great pleasures and that completely denying myself of foods I enjoy is not productive in the long run.
  • I don’t have to be perfect. If I eat healthy, natural foods at least 90 perfect of the time, I know I will get good results.
  • If I set a compliance rule for myself, then there’s no such thing as forbidden foods. As long as I obey the law of calorie balance and eat only small amounts, I can still be healthy, develop a great body, and enjoy my favorite foods in moderation.
  • If I want better results, faster, I realize that I may need to tighten up my nutritional compliance and I’m willing to do it if that’s what it takes.
  • Everything I eat will have some effect on my body, but I realize that what I eat once in awhile doesn’t impact me that much.
  • What’s most important is what I eat habitually, so I’m very conscious about what I eat repeatedly day after day. I understand and have great respect for the power of habits.

  • This was an amazing post Stefan. I’m a Kindle Money Mastery member and really admire your overall mindset. This one gave me a different look into your overall inner success blueprint. Affirmations are a big part of my life and your explanation of the difference between an affirmation and an “incantation” hit home.

    BTW, thank you for sharing your affirmation list… I am trying each one on for size and will definitely apply some of these into my own “self programming” as I move forward towards my own life mastery 😀

    I especially liked:

    “Now I am the voice.
    I will lead, not follow.
    I will believe, not doubt.
    I will create, not destroy.
    I am a force for good.
    I am a force for God.
    I am a leader.
    Defy the odds.
    Set a new standard.
    Step up”

    I get it… Thank you.

    • Thanks George, give them a try! “Now I Am The Voice” chant is from Tony Robbins, it’s a powerful one.

  • Great list…. I especially like “I control how I feel – I can change my state in an instant.”

  • Jaiman Andersen

    Wow, Powerful, the one I like the most is ” All I need is within me now”. Thank you so much for this blog post.As I become older and more self aware, I had found myself speaking to myself in ways I would never like others to talk to me, This HELPS!!

  • Manuel Bee

    I was waiting this blog post for a loooong time!!! THANK YOU STEFAN!!!…I will borrow loads of them and integrate them in my daily routine in order to have more support of my persona. Again, thank you!

  • Markrdr

    Hey these are powerful affirmations and incantations that I shall certainly use, thanks Stefan.

    Here are a few I use too:

    Divine Prosperity is my birth right

    I am seated with God in Heavenly Places

    I am a joint heir with Christ therefore I am LAWFUL Owner of the Universe

    The path of my life is getting brighter and Brighter and BRIGHTER each day unto the Perfect day.

    The Spirit of God quickens my mortal body therefore I shall Live and not die

  • Gives me goosebumps 🙂

  • I’ve got a video blog coming soon on waking up at 5AM, stay tuned.

  • Yup, works like a charm. That’s how to get them to benefit you the most.

  • Nelson

    I decide to love myself. I decide to love no matter what. I decide to BELIVE.

    Thanks a lot Stefan for sharing your journy with the world. It’s a gift to humanity. THANK YOU.

  • Thanks for the kind words and so happy to hear that my work has impacted you!

  • Jessica Daniels Candles

    WOW! Amazing blog post! New fan here!

  • auchomage

    Mate, this was fantastic.
    For me it helps, especially now as I’m trying to find my way through the forest of negativity that has surrounded me in my mind.

    I knew some of the affirmations from your first morning ritual video, and incorporated them like
    “Every disciplined action has multiple rewards”, “Life doesn’t happen to me, it happens for me”, “What I do today, shall create today and shape tomorrow” etc.

    But here you go into greater depth along with an explanation and other alternatives on how to condition empowering beliefs into our minds.

    I use “I can do it”, because my self-doubt right now is unbelievably resilient, but it is being chipped away by small successes. This video I believe will give me the ammo (ammunition) to really make progress against that obstacle.

    Will you be sharing a video in the near future on what recipes you prepare, now that you are vegetarian?

    How long does it take you to run through your incantations? I say about 15 daily (which includes some I got from Brian Tracy , like “I like myself” “I can do it”, some I made up like ” I love to study, understand and apply”…

    Thanks for this great free gift.

    More power to you, I’m so glad I subscribed to your channel at the end of 2013, I’ve not one regret.

  • Antares Che Hagman

    Here is one I created from a les brown motivational speech.

    My divine mission in life is to CONTRIBUTE. To GIVE LOVE and add VALUE to other peoples lives. I have been ENDOWED with GEATNESS and I am NOW in alignment with who I TRULY am.

  • CharlieLee

    Hi, Stefan! It’s so inspiring, thank you for you sharing!
    And here are some I use:
    I am living my life by design, not by default!
    I am NOW rising to my vision and am doing whatever it takes to achieve my life’s goals and dreams!
    This is my year to shine, my year to achieve and my year to become all that I can be.

  • CharlieLee

    Three ones as he shown in the video.

  • Jackie

    I just began listening to your videos and reading blog entries. I have written my first two goals and will be working on the other areas of my life. I am just now investigating incantations and plan to add those as well. Something internally has begun to shift. Your guidance so far has been invaluable. I deeply appreciate all of the helpful information you provide. Best.

  • RP

    Hi Stefan,

    Love your work, youtube videos, etc – big fan. I realize you wrote this post over a year ago, so hopefully you will still see this comment.

    My ultimate question is – what do you do when you have too many affirmations?!

    I currently am working on improving myself in *several* ways – physically, emotionally, professionally, financially, romantically, etc. – and am in the process of creating goals and massive action plans for the various components of my life. I have also narrowed down 3-5 primary areas/tasks that I need to focus on first, and am writing affirmations for those areas. However, even with these primary areas, I am finding several limiting beliefs and am ending up with 7-10 affirmations per area. All together, this is coming out to be somewhere around 40 affirmations!

    How would you recommend narrowing these down. Or, if you think using that many is ok, how would you streamline the process of using this large quantity of affirmations? What sort of process would you use?

    Thanks so much for your help – you’re awesome, Bro Montana.


    • Nick

      Hi RP,
      I believe, you are on the right track.. from what I heard from Stephan, he doesn’t use all affirmations or incantations every day.. Even Tony Robbins says the same thing, you can have an hour of power some day or break it down to half hour or quick 15 mins and pick out something which connects you for that moment and say it.. Ultimately, you have written it all for yourself and you will say it periodically.. Believe in it and see it working.. This could also be a test or developing a new habit. Really, it is upto you what works for you. I am in the same spot as you are and sometimes it could get overwhelming. But what I learnt was, break it down and make it more effective than boredom. Hope this helps… Good luck with everything.. God bless you in abundance and may you accomplish all your dreams and goals.

  • Bernardo Segurado

    I have two questions – How many (minutes/hours) and how long (days months) do you spend conditioning one specific belief? And do you know that is conditioned?
