Mastering the mind is an essential aspect of spiritual development and ascension. When we focus our mind on loving or positive thoughts we bring greater clarity to our spiritual practices, aiding greater awareness. Mental focus can also aid the development of meditation, allowing us to achieve a deeper state of stillness. When we all program our minds to produce only positive thought forms about ourselves and our realities, we will not only create the reality we wish to exist within, but assist in raising the consciousness of humanity.
It is important to think of each thought as a bubble that is so precious; it influences your life greatly and attracts different energies either positive or negative into your life. When you focus on love and positivity throughout the day you will begin to naturally program your mind to think in this way eternally, thus achieving a greater consciousness and ascension level.
An affirmation is defined simply as a positive statement used to reprogram your subconscious — a statement which, when said to yourself over and over, with emotion, will influence internal forces and manifest change in your life.
The affirmations can be used in their original state or they can be adjusted to suit your needs, they are examples to assist you in understanding that affirmations must be said as if you have what you desire already in your life. You are affirming that what you desire is already in your life even if it is not; this is the key to manifesting your dreams.
Choose a few affirmations and use them as mantra, repeat them to yourself throughout the day in your mind until they naturally and automatically run through your mind. It is far more beneficial than allowing your mind to worry, doubt or judge. The affirmations have their own energy vibration, so as you repeat them they are energising your energy and light quotient, allowing you to achieve mastery on many levels.
The affirmations can also be used as a tool to focus on during meditation, repeating them to yourself slowly.
Some frequently asked questions about Affirmations: –
1. “Why Do Some Affirmations *Work* – and Others Don’t?”
By definition, an affirmation is a statement repeated time and again either verbally or mentally — or written down. The words of the affirmation statement – in themselves – when spoken, thought of, or written *without* a pictorial (visualized) or emotional connection — make a very weak affirmation.
Affirmations, when worded correctly — and when emotionally charged – are able to tap into the unlimited creative power of your subconscious mind, and manifest your desires.
Affirmations are not all created equal. Some are, of course, better than others. There are *power affirmations* that have been proven again and again to work.
When you examine the structure of these power affirmations, you, too, can learn how to create your own powerful affirmations for your specific purposes.
Consider the following:
“I am what I choose to be.”
“All my needs are met instantaneously.”
“I love and accept myself exactly as I am.”
“_____________ comes to me easily and effortlessly.”
(Fill in the blank with what you desire.)
“I am now perfectly healthy in body, mind and spirit.”
“I now create my wonderful, ideal life.”
What do the above power affirmations have in common?
1) They’re stated in the present tense.
An affirmation is more effective when stated in the present tense. For example; “I now have a wonderful job.” Avoid affirming something in the future tense, e.g. “I am going to have a wonderful job” or the results will always be waiting to happen.
2) They express a positive statement.
Affirmations need to be stated in the most positive terms possible. Avoid negative statements. Affirm what you do want, rather than what you don’t want. For example: “I am no longer sick.” This is a negative statement. Instead, affirm: “I am now perfectly healthy in body, mind and spirit.” This statement is much more powerful as it is positive and reinforces your desired goal and doesn’t confuse your subconscious mind with the mention of the undesirable condition.
3) They’re short and specific.
Short affirmations are easy to say, and have a far greater impact at the subconscious level than those which are long and wordy. Keeping them specific and to the point adds power as the idea is uncluttered by extraneous elements.
The mechanics that make affirmations powerful are:
The importance of repetition cannot be overemphasized. It imprints the affirmation into your subconscious mind.
Get involved, be passionate, use your emotions. Think carefully about the meaning of the words as you repeat them rather than just writing, typing or saying them.
Practicing affirmations with persistence achieves results much sooner than practicing them periodically. Successive sessions will have a compounding effect.
You don’t necessarily have to believe your affirmation initially, in order for it to work. Belief will grow with your forthcoming successes. What you do need is the ability to *feel* what it would be like when the desire you’re affirming is fulfilled, or your need met. Every time that you have a need — and that need is met — a certain “feeling” is produced in you. You need to evoke that same feeling when you state your affirmation. In other words, you need to feel with every fiber of your being that what you desire has already happened. Without this feeling, your affirmation is powerless.
* Impress Yourself
Personalize your affirmations. They must *resonate* with you — feel right for you. The stronger your connection with the affirmation, the deeper the impression it makes on your mind, and the sooner you will experience positive results.
So there you have it – the simple formula for creating affirmations that work. Based on the above, you can easily create your own affirmations to manifest any desire or need you have in life.
