Positive affirmations are a technique for creating sustainability for the changes we make in our life. We become motivated to change, we make a conscious decision to change, we make the change and then LIFE happens. We experience pressure and we revert to habitual behaviour. All our work apparently lost. Remember, affirmations make the future NOW! We practise it daily and things will change. The universe will conspire to support you and things you need to realise your future start popping up.
“You will see it when you believe it” - Wayne Dyer
Affirmations must be:
The affirmation is about me. Realise you can only make changes within yourself, not others;
e.g. I have the…
We think in pictures so if our affirmation is about what we DON’T want, we start creating a mental picture in our subconscious of exactly what we don’t want. The affirmation must be about what you DO want:
e.g. “I am fit and healthy” vs. “I am not a fat and lazy slob”
3. Present tense
The affirmation must be written as if it is happening right now. This is different to where you are actually at and this creates the differential to make the change
e.g. I am… / I create… / I do...
4. Indicate achievement
Write the affirmation as if it has already been achieved and not as if it has the potential to be achieved
e.g. I am a success at my job
To make the affirmations stick in the subconscious we need to align it to an emotion. Memories that are linked to positive emotions are remembered more vividly. You only need think of your first love and the emotions YOUR song well up in you. Emotions ensure the affirmations work faster and are more powerful
To ensure the affirmation becomes reality one can use the process of imprinting. This involves developing a mental picture of what the future looks like with the affirmation as being real and already achieved. Link this to the positive emotion and repeat. This process ensures the picture we create becomes reality
e.g. Repeat Early morning and before bed in front of a mirror looking into your eyes
