The following self-love affirmations are designed to increase your self-love by repeating them daily.
Our subconscious mind is full of pre-programmed beliefs, many of which prevent us from having self-love, even leading us to actively dislike ourselves.
The subconscious mind can be retrained and reprogrammed to accept positive beliefs, ones we desire to have and that infinitely improve our lives.
Many of the affirmations below are concepts that lead to self-love. We can work on these thoughts too, because all are pathways to improving our perceptions and feelings about ourselves.
In having self-love, we can live in joy, peace and confidence; manifesting all the best. Repeating affirmations is best done when you are feeling very relaxed because the subconscious mind is most accepting in this state. You can repeat affirmations to yourself out-loud or within your mind. But it's most effective when we speak them out-loud.
To perform affirmations you can either:
- Read the entire list to yourself 3 times per day, once in the morning, once at midday and once in the evening.
- Pick three to use in a day. Repeat the first one 10 times in the morning, the second 10 times at midday, and the third 10 times in the evening. Pick another three the next day.
- Pick one and repeat it to yourself ten times in the morning, then midday, and then in the evening. Pick another the next day and so on.
- Or use them in a way that works most effectively for you.
Pause for about 5 seconds between each affirmation. You can perform self-love affirmations for as many days or weeks as you wish, until you sense a difference in how you feel about yourself. Affirmations are best used in conjunction with Inner Work in order to tackle any underlying upset or hurt from the past which may be repressed and unresolved within the subconscious mind. I'll get to that at the end.
So first of all, I've listed self-love affirmations that get straight to the point. The next set are useful in gaining a more rounded basis for self-love.

Each of these self-love affirmations were used in my 'Self-Love While You Sleep' guided meditation. This uses affirmations to reaffirm self-love concepts to the subconscious mind while you sleep.
I hope you enjoy using these affirmations and that they help you to feel more love for yourself from now on.
