As people grow through their life they can use affirmations appropriate to the situations they find themselves immersed within. The problems faced by a child age three are not the same as an adult of thirty, and the child will be helped most by affirmations that will stimulate effective habits that help them explore their young life. Adults would find affirmations helping their productivity and family welfare more useful. There are some affirmations that will be appropriate to all ages, such as: – Live long and participate. – Pay attention to what you are doing. –
A natural progression of maturation is through — Infant, Child, Adolescent, Adult, Mature, Sage, and Ourora. They are loosely based on the time base and inclusiveness of the individuals, in the moment, but most adults can intentionally move into any level with a little thought. What will be developed below are statements that are most appropriate to those who find themselves confronted with problems that fit that typical life situation. Let us start with adolescence, because most people reading this will be familiar with that emotional state of maturity and can relate to it, and yet have access to adult modes of thinking.
Huffington Post has a list of Dr Carmen Harra’s affirmations that are used below to illustrate moving from an “I” ego-centered method of self-growth to an “our” adult method for personal, family, and friends type of growth. Adolescent affirmations are in “normal text,” and the modified Adult affirmations are in “bold italic text.”
