3 Ways to Super Charge Your Affirmations
"One comes to believe whatever one repeats to oneself
sufficiently often, whether the statement be true or false.
It comes to be dominating thought in one's mind."
-- Robert Collier
Repetition of words creates repetition of thoughts.
Repetition of thoughts creates reality.
By intentionally choosing the words that wallpaper your mind,
you change the tone of the room in which you live and you
change the life you are living.
******* The Power of Words *******
We typically dilute our words by drawing them from vague and
conflicted states of mind. We present a muddy impression on
the creative medium in which we live and our reality mirrors
our dull efforts. This is so easy to remedy that you may actually
shock yourself with your radical improvement in results as
you become more intentional with your affirmations.
Words are not just signposts that point to meaning. When we
use them to simply report what we observe it's like using
a racecar to deliver newspapers.
Words are powerful instruments of manifestation. When given
an open road they will perform extraordinary feats.
******* Eliminate These Words *******
We use certain words habitually and somewhat unconsciously.
By eliminating them from your affirmations, you will automatically
begin implementing 2 of the 3 ways to supercharge your affirmations,
without even yet knowing what these 3 ways are.
Here are the words to eliminate:
no, not, don't, doesn't, never, won't, can't, stop, quit,
will, am going to, should, want to, plan to, hope to.
Every time you create an affirmation, check for these words.
If you find them, reword your affirmation without them.
******* 3 Superchargers for Your Affirmations *******
==>Always Affirm in the Present Tense
When you are creating an affirmation, you are like an artist
creating a painting. Whatever you affirm with your paintbrush
becomes the reality on the canvas. As an affirmation artist,
you do not have colors on your palette. Your words are your
paint. You are pulling potential realities from the formless
realm into the manifest realm through the narrow birth canal
of your carefully chosen words.
Choose your words in the present tense so that the reality
you choose becomes experienced now. Now is the only time that
has the mystical power to pour forth a manifestation. If you
word your affirmations in the future by saying, "I will…,"
you keep that carrot dangling in the fictitious future and
you pull the plug on the power of your affirmations. A surefire
way to begin an affirmation is with the sacred words, "I
==> Always Affirm in the Positive
You are bothering to create an affirmation because you are
living something unwanted and you desire a change. It is only
natural that you would understand your desire as not wanting
what you've got. But if you point your affirmation toward
getting rid of a habit or condition, if you say what you will
not do, or if you affirm that something will go away, you
are actually chaining yourself to it.
It simply does not work.
In fact you'd be better off not to affirm at all because this
sort of negative affirmation is like affirming the opposite
of what you want. Remember, to affirm means to make firm.
It is the process of bringing things into form. Remember also
that the universe does not hear the word "no." So
whatever you are talking about, whether you are affirming
or denying it, you are in effect, affirming it.
Instead of saying, "I will quit smoking," which
is both in the future and negative, say something like:
All my actions are healthy and intentional. I choose my actions
and I enjoy all my choices. I am in charge of my actions.
I have healthy life affirming habits. I love being in charge
of my life.
==> Feel as if it's Already True
Once you have a well-chosen phrase to affirm, one that is
positive, in the present tense, and feels good when you consider
it, enter into its world. Step into the affirmation as if
it were already your reality. When you say it, imagine that
it is already true. Feel how you would feel if it were already
manifest. Steps 1 and 2 build a powerful rocket. Step 3 lights
the fuse and sends it off with a blast.
Affirmations can literally change your life. They are free.
Everyone has equal access to them, and they work day and night,
always ready and willing to bring your good to you. Use these
3 superchargers every time you do an affirmation process and
watch your life transform before our eyes.
