Affirmations & Creative Visualization

Back

Affirmations are certain phrases or words said over and over out loud. The intention is to make your nervous system repattern to believe what you are telling it. This process usually takes about 30 days to complete and then a new affirmation is designed, if needed, and the process repeated.

 

The affirmation is said out loud from 2- 5 times a day. Usually it is a paragraph with several phrases that your guides and angels have helped me to construct and organize in a specific way, so the entire paragraph needs to be verbalized in the exact order it is written.  Most times it is exactly what you need to hear. Some of the phrases will resonate with you immediately. Others are harder to repeat.

 

Often a pet will need an affirmation. They need to hear the affirmation as you say it. The strange thing that I have noticed over the many years I have been doing this work is that sometimes the affirmation is partially for the owner. The animal needs to hear you say it because part of their job here on earth is to support your spiritual lessons and keep you on the right track. Often the pet gets well once they see that the owner is doing their own personal work.

 

The affirmations I build for my clients come from several different sources including but not limited to Louise Hay's book, You Can Heal Your Life, Bellruth Naperstak's books and audio, the book Creating Money: Keys to Abundance by Sanaya Roman and Duane Packer and other inspirational/spiritual resources.

 

Affirmations work better and faster if they are also written out daily. Usually only 1-3 times is necessary.

 

I have not included the individual affirmations because there are pages and pages of them that I delve through to complete this process for you.

Sample Affirmations
Affirmations are statements of acceptance that one uses to allow the manifestation of your destiny.  They are powerful and positive thoughts and statements sent out to the universe.  To do positive affirmations, you need to eliminate the negativity around you. You must first believe that YOU CAN manifest your destiny.  It must be a positive, powerful belief not just 'maybe I'll try and see if this works".  Together with Visualizations, you can create the life you want.

Visualizations for the Life You Want
 
Before You Begin 
Decide what area of your life you want to work on and then decide what you want.  There are several important points to know about affirmations: 
  • Use the present or past tense.  Do not use the future tense.  You want your mind to know it has already happened
  • Be POSITIVE.  Use the most positive terms you can.  Never use negatives in affirmations
  • Write them.  As you are learning to do affirmations, write them down so you will remember exactly what you want to say.  Keep them short and very specific.  Personalize them with your name.
  • Believe.  Always believe that what you are saying is happening.  The more you believe, the stronger the affirmation.
  • Repetition.  Being repetive and persisteant helps to set them in your head and in your unconscious being.
  • Time.  Always have a specific time daily set aside for your meditations, affirmations and visualizations.  This will help set a pattern for you so you will do them daily.

General Daily Visualizations 
After preparations to your area are made, get into your comfortable position (as described in Meditations), and close your eyes.  See yourself awakening in the morning, stretching and smiling at the start of a new day.  Get out of bed and make your coffee, tea or whatever is your usual morning beverage.  See yourself sitting at the table smiling and enjoying your beverage.  Now, see yourself going to the bathroom, showering or bathing, and getting dressed.  Hear yourself welcoming the new day.  See yourself leaving for the workplace or beginning your household chores.  See the bounce in your step as you proceed to start a new and glorious day.

To visualize what you want is to have it.  That may seem a simple task or to some a childish view of life.  But neither is true.  While the simplicity is inherent in the belief of manifesting your destiny, the life you live to do this is not.  It is a belief you live out of love and truth.  Childish?  Yes and no.  It IS getting back to the child-like wonder that the world is full of love and caring.  But it is not a simplistic vision of life or a simple one.  One must truly believe that you can visualize and 'see' what you want.  The technique IS simple, but the task is not unless you TRULY BELIEVE in yourself and that you can change and manifest what you want.

What are Visualizations? 
Visualizations are images we create in our mind.  The word means, literally, to see in your mind.  Your mind makes mental movies that you will play over and over again.  Our brain and it's subconscious functions Ďrememberí the things we see Ė the smile of a new baby, the rainbow over the meadow, etc.  We can recreate these images over and over again in our minds.  Thus, creating Ďmoviesí of what we want does the same thing.  It is entered directly into our subconscious as what has actually been seen by us.  It is real to our brain.  We have actually seen the image we created.  Thus we create the reality we want.

Why do they Work? 
"Seeing is believing." We BELIEVE what our eyes see.  This is true for visual seeing as well as mental seeing.  As you create an image in your mind, your brain believes it is happening and real.  Repetition of the visions causes the image to become more real.  Your mind begins to believe it actually has happened.  Itís an event that has taken place.  Combined with affirmations, it becomes a powerful tool to create what you want.

How do you do it? 
Set aside a time and place for your meditations, visualization and affirmations.  Itís better if you can do it at the same time every day.  Visualization begins by closing your eyes and creating a mental image of what you want.  At first this may seem a bit strange and the images are unclear.  Thatís all right.  The more you practice, the clearer the images become.  Always try to picture the same images every day, adding more detail as you become more comfortable with the process.  We will go into more detail in specific visualizations and affirmations. Look at the pictures in your mind as a movie, with yourself as the lead actor.

Mental Preparation 
Talk to yourself and give yourself permission to have 30-60 minutes of time where only you are the concern; that all other activities may cease;  that all other thoughts can be left until after your time with yourself.  Always be positive that this is for your good and it is all right to do this for your self.  You will become more effective and more energized if you take the time for you.

Physical Preparation 
Find a comfortable chair or area to sit.  A place that will not intrude on your thoughts.  Your body must be relaxed.  This can be done with yoga or other exercises, a hot bath, deep breathing.  Lighting incense sometimes helps.  Do whatever relaxes your body.  You may also find it helpful to use an object to fixate on when you are beginning meditation.  Candles work well since the flicker of the flame requires concentration.  Gazing at flickering lights also work well (such as a skyline in the evening).

Time 
Physical preparation includes finding a quiet time in your day when negativity is at a minimum.  It may mean going to a special place that is yours alone at a time when there is the least amount of activity around. 

Back to top

You're Ready 
Once all  the preparations are in place and you are relaxed, sit and concentrate on your object while slowly breathing in - and - out.  Empty all  
thoughts from your mind so that all you can see or think of is your object and your breathing.  With each breath in tell yourself that your are breathing in the energy of the Universe.  Breathe out the stress and relax each muscle of your body beginning at your feet and moving up.  After your feet are completely relaxed, concentrate on your ankles.  Concentrate on them being loose and fluid.  Once your ankles are loosen, feel your calf muscles relaxing, then your thighs.  As you feel the warmth in your muscles, feel them getting lighter and lighter.  Feel them floating to the surface of a white cloud.  Continue to feel your muscles relaxing as your concentration travels up your body to your head.  As the muscles relax, see your body surfacing to the top of the cloud.  Empty your mind of all thoughts and just concentrate on floating on the soft, downy cloud.  FEEL your body floating.  SEE yourself surrounded with the white light of the cloud.

Slowly, slowly begin your affirmations.
