So you want to change your life in a hurry? Affirmations are definitely the way to go!
What you affirm doesn’t have to be true in the least when you begin to affirm it. You don’t have to believe it, you don’t have to believe you can achieve it. You just have to start saying it, writing it, singing it, exercising to it, repeating it. Over and over and over.
So pick one from a book, make up one, draw one out of a hat where you’ve piled in an affirmation on each of the wonderful ways you want to be, each of the wonderful toys you want to have.
“I am calm and peaceful.” “I am a perfect size 8.” “The new car I’m looking at comes easily to me now, at a great price.” “I am always lucky.” “I am happy all day long at work.”
One great benefit is that you’ll learn how much time and energy you spend downgrading yourself. Decide you’ll say your affirmation whenever you feel sorry for yourself, or get angry, or worry about money. You’ll be amazed at how much work you’ve put into those negative affirmations! And how much time you spend in that downer place.
A Rule: Keep affirmations positive. And no shoulds allowed. A simple short direct sentence is all that’s required. And what works best.
Another Rule: No how’s, please. Don’t tell the Universe how to give you the car, that you can have it if you save $5 a week for 10 years, or that your grandmother might give you hers – or that you always have second best cars, not the one you really want. Step right up and place your order. “My wonderful green hatchback is here now. I love that new car smell!”
Say your affirmation. Play in your mind with how you’re going to feel when you have what you want. Smile as you think about it. Look your toy up on the internet. Make a treasure map with pictures of how life is going to be once it’s here. Worrying won’t help, being playful definitely will. Put it out there and let it go. No griping or fretting until at least 6 months have passed. It’s probably manifested, but if not – change that affirmation. Adjust it, tweak it, give it up altogether. No thinking. Just what feels good when you write it down.
And don’t forget to say thanks – be grateful….over and over and over again. Life is definitely on our side, and works when we let it! : >
