Now that you’ve developed so much awareness, it’s time to focus on the ‘new story’ you want to tell in your life, one that acknowledges and expresses the magnificent being that you are.
The basis for creating this new story is affirmations.
Affirmations are positive, present tense statements used regularly to create positive change in your inner and outer worlds. They are used to describe how you want your life circumstances to be, in a way that affirms that it’s already true, or on its way to becoming true.
Open your thinking to the totality of possibilities! Remember, when you first say an affirmation it will not seem to be true. If it were already true, you would not have any need for them.
They are like planting seeds in the ground. First they germinate, then they sprout roots and then they poke their first little shoots up through the ground. It takes time to go from seed to full-grown plant.
And so it is with affirmations, it takes some time from the first declaration to the final demonstration. Be patient and kind to yourself.
Visualisation is another powerful technique when used in combination with daily affirmations. It involves using your imagination and feelings to create a mental picture of what you want to achieve.
Many people say they cannot visualise, yet they can always describe their bathroom or kitchen. When we can somehow picture or feel what it is we want, then we are visualising. It’s really that simple.
|Take an area of your life (work or relationships), create your own affirmations and write them in your journal.|
|Always use present tense statements. If you use future tense the positive results potentially remain out of your reach. |
EXAMPLE: “I will become well” BECOMES “I am in perfect health”.
Repeat affirmations daily when you awake and/or before you go to bed. Start to notice how your feelings and attitudes change over time.
It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief.Muhammad Ali
And once that belief becomes a deep conviction,
things begin to happen.
