The Science

Scientific Evidence: within the last four decades, our view of the mature brain has changed significantly. Today it is generally accepted that the adult brain is far from being fixed. A number of factors such as stress, adrenal, hormones, neurotransmitters, growth factors, certain drugs, environmental stimulation, learning, and aging change neuronal structures and functions. The Wellness star encourages positive self-talk through auditory and visual stimulation. This has been proven to change the structure of the brain. One of the key psychological theories behind positive affirmations is self-affirmation theory (Steele, 1988). So, yes, there are empirical studies based on the idea that we can maintain our sense of self-integrity by telling ourselves I am somebody, I am good enough, I can do anything, I like myself.
The processes that affirmations may induce are morphological alterations in brain areas, changes in neuron morphology, network alterations including changes in neuronal connectivity, the generation of new neurons (neurogenesis), and neurobiochemical changes. Repeating the star is like driving a huge tractor back and forth across a football pitch. You Are creating deep groves in your subconscious mind that will remind you to speak kind words.

A Look at the Research

The development of self-affirmation theory has led to neuroscientific research aimed at investigating whether we can see any changes in the brain when we self-affirm in positive ways.

There is MRI evidence suggesting that certain neural pathways are increased when people practice self-affirmation tasks (Cascio et al., 2016). If you want to be super specific, the ventromedial prefrontal cortex—involved in positive valuation and self-related information processing—becomes more active when we consider our personal values (Falk et al., 2015; Cascio et al., 2016).

The results of a study by Falk and colleagues suggest that when we choose to practice positive affirmations, we’re better able to view “otherwise-threatening information as more self-relevant and valuable” (2015: 1979). 

 

Benefits of Daily Affirmations

Now that we know more about the theories supporting positive affirmations, here are six examples of evidence from empirical studies that suggest that positive self-affirmation practices can be beneficial:

Self-affirmations have been shown to decrease health-deteriorating stress (Sherman et al., 2009; Critcher & Dunning, 2015);Self-affirmations have been used effectively in interventions that led people to increase their physical behavior (Cooke et al., 2014);They may help us to perceive otherwise “threatening” messages with less resistance, including interventions (Logel & Cohen, 2012);They can make us less likely to dismiss harmful health messages, responding instead with the intention to change for the better (Harris et al., 2007) and to eat more fruit and vegetables (Epton & Harris, 2008);They have been linked positively to academic achievement by mitigating GPA decline in students who feel left out at college (Layous et al., 2017);Self-affirmation has been demonstrated to lower stress and rumination (Koole et al., 1999; Weisenfeld et al., 2001).

 

FEELING GOOD IS THE KEY

The Confidence Star is the fastest way to reprogram the mind for success and happiness.

Just suppose your negative list was something like this:

I am nobody! 

I am never good enough!

I hate myself!

Nobody loves me!

You can then turn them around to something like this:

I am Somebody!

I am good enough!

I like myself!

I am Love! 

Let your smile change the world, never let the world change your smile.
