Affirmations are positive statements that we usually write in the present tense. An example of an affirmation would be ‘I am getting stronger every day’. The reason we write affirmations is to start to retrain our subconscious so that, by repeating the affirmations several times per day, we start to believe that the affirmations are true and, eventually, we will start to change so that the affirmation does become true for us in reality.
Affirmations of the heart can be described as positive statements we create to help us achieve our dreams – those things closest to our hearts! It can also refer to affirmations we create to help us find love or romance. Either way, they should follow the rules that we use for positive affirmations, in general.

If this kept happening, then you would start to believe those things. Even though you may have forgotten them, now you are an adult, they are still there inside your subconscious and are having negative effects on your life.
