Being an introverted only child, it’s difficult for me to make friends, and the ones that I have formed, I see and treat as my family, my siblings.
I was the type who, even though I was shy, wanted to be close to my classmates, or at least be on good terms with them. I wanted to know that I have at least one person I can talk to or count on wherever I was.
Wishful and childish thinking, I know.
As I grew up, the people I let into my life undoubtedly became smaller, and I was surprisingly fine with that. And I think, for the most part, that it was simply because I was scared. I was scared of feeling the emotions of losing a friend who I once cherished.
It’s easier to keep someone out if they were never invited in.
It wasn’t until I read about a “Soul Tribe” that I became hopeful of being able to willingly unlock my door towards those who I share an unbreakable bond with. I don’t know how true it is, but I believe in the universe and its timing in bringing me and my soul group together.
A Bit About Soul Tribes
A soul tribe is a spiritual term for a group of people who come from the same energetic field. It’s an instant connection, a feeling of knowing this person for years even though we just met. A balanced connection of understanding each other on a deeper level and supporting one another with our passions, goals, philosophies, values, and purpose.
As I wait for the timing of the universe, I can do my part in connecting with my tribe by living in the present moment, keep doing my daily adventures, and saying some of the affirmations below.
What are 'Affirmations'?
There are two types: positive and negative affirmations. Positive affirmations are, of course, the ones we should focus on. They are statements or phrases that challenge negative, unhelpful thoughts and aim to improve upon them. They are specific to our situation and work with our subconscious patterns in order to help us overcome our challenges with regard to ourselves, our passions and goals, and our relationships.
As we go through these affirmations, we choose one (or five) that calls out to us and say them out loud at least twice a day – morning and evening when we’re in a relaxed state. Saying these affirmations after waking up allows our conscious self to bring that energy with us throughout our day while saying them before bed helps the energy flow into our subconscious. If we prefer, we can also do this in front of a mirror. Doing this allows us to further envision these affirmations, making them more believable and attainable to our subconscious.
If we can’t find an affirmation we connect with, we can write personalized ones that suit us better.
TIPS FOR WRITING AFFIRMATIONS
Start them in the first-person point of view (i.e. “I” and “My”)
Keep them in the present tense (i.e. “I am,” “I feel,” and “I have”)
Keep them positive (i.e. “can” and “income”)
Keep them concise and specific.
Keep in mind that affirmations work only if we are willing and ready to make positive changes in our lives.

Affirmations have been a blessing for me throughout my school years.
It takes time to get used to them, let alone believe in them, but the more we say them in our head or out loud, the more we open our souls to inviting these powerful phrases into reality. The important thing is to believe and to allow the universe to make situations, events, and actions align for us at the time we’re meant to receive them.
