For me, this is a fun part of the manifestation, Law of Attraction and The Secret, or any other name you want to give to the easiness to live your dream life.
During the 21 Day Law of Attraction, this is step 9. It can be easier to get the affirmation that will work for you f you already make clear of what you really want.
Just to remember, it can be confusing sometimes to be clear of it, for example, if you want money, don’t ask for a job, if you want a specific job, don’t ask for money. Work on visualization, write what you want a few times, look for the old beliefs that can make you stuck are activities that will make this part easier.
I already talked about I had this period in my life that all my dream came true and I didn’t know the next step, the next dream. Then I asked for this “to know what my dreams are and feel clear about them”. In the middle of this time, I used a quote I love and I highly recommend you use it every day with the other affirmations you create. This phrase is from a psychologist of XIX century Émile Coué. He supported the idea of self-improvement using optimistic autosuggestion.
“Day by day, in every way, I’m getting better and better.”
Why affirmations are important?
I will keep using Émile Coué studies to explain that, even though I think it is pretty obvious if you already studied a little about improving yourself or your life. (Book of Emile Coue)
Or, if you had a grandmother that used to say “Words have power”.
You will able to find all explanations about positive words to be used to self-development. As “words have power”, elevate energy through good words, trick your mind to change perspectives, auto-suggestion… For me all this is true.
Words do have power since you give power to it. But as people don’t normally speak with consciousness, it is pretty easy someone says something putting energy in the words and don’t realize it. A simple example, “I am starving”. And you put all pain in your face to say it. Well, if you take a long time to find a place to eat or the food fall on the floor, or you find a person you need to give attention and it keeps you from eating. I think you know where I am going. Maybe you won’t starve to death, but man you put that in your life for sure. I prefer to avoid all emotionalized quotes and consistently used positive ones when I can. If I am hungry, I think about eating a nice meal as an intention, I get the food and I consciously use affirmation to bless the food, to say I am grateful, to say how to taste it is, and so on. And I don’t remember the last time I ate something I didn’t enjoy it.
And think with me here. This example is simple, but add all the simple moments of a day, if one goes wrong it can poison your whole day. But if the whole day you add great experiences, even simple, you had a great day. When was the last time you had a day like that? Try to use those affirmations to manifest a great day.
Going back to Coué. Many people talk about autosuggestion nowadays, I already talked about Marisa Peer. She says that the most important words you listen are those that you say to yourself. Many times, she works with the idea of autosuggestion to find out what are the beliefs that make you stuck in a goal or in an area of your life and through healthy practices with your mind like autosuggestion you fix the idea and change what you say to yourself. Change what is your true, change your affirmations toward a belief, or an area of your life.
Coué used to say he never healed anybody because he actually teaches how people can heal themselves. He believed and worked with the idea of use word and image repeatedly to make one of your minds believe in it. (He also believed in the theory of human have two minds that could work separately).
Use this affirmation in the morning and before sleep numerous times, and during the day bring that affirmation a few times can be helpful too.
He was aware that the opposite result could happen if the person questioned the affirmation or used to contradict it. And that, autosuggestion could happen intentionally through the perception and emotion the person received and feel during his life.
Well, let’s keep simple.
I recommend take your analyses about your life and your dream and create an affirmation to two tops. So, if my goal is to be rich, I would affirm that:
I love to be rich. (Affirm what you can believe, if you feel bad about the affirmation it won’t help you).
Let’s say the second thing is to get a specific promotion:
Thank you for my career growth.
Create a picture that relates to each affirmation. Feels like it was 10 minutes ago you got what you want, it is easier to believe than you try to change your whole history.
Let’s say you want to change your path, something bad that happened. I used to change my history to feel better about it. For example, when I was about 11 years old me and my family were kept hostage in my grandfather’s house (Actually this happened twice, but the first time I was a baby). I didn’t change what happened, but I create a vision of energy protecting me and that something happened with the men that did it and they could find love and dedicate their lives to good things. I also asked God to protected the place, so when I am there, even 20 years after that, I feel good, I don’t fear anymore.
Maybe you can’t change the whole scene, but make it lighter can help you. And create an affirmation that makes you feel the opposite of what you felt, can save you. I felt unsafe, now I am always protected by the Energy I believe. Create this image of me protected and say I am blessed and protected helped me, curred my past. So, I am sure it will help you. Maybe you can imagine that there are more than you putting good energy for your dream come true because every time I write I expect it. (I know, cliche, who am I to do it, humans are not that good… bla bla. Well, don’t believe it if you don’t want to or if it makes you doubt your dreams. But honestly, live on this earth, or in other reality, there is more good energy praying for you than you expected.
Do you felt good or bad with what I said? This is a suggestion, an affirmation that can help you believe in something or disbelieve in something. Even though it was a practical example, it is true. And with this vulnerable and cute paragraph, I end the post and I put intention you get the good things you want.
