How To Use Affirmations?
To affirm means to declare what is already present. It is the same with creating and using affirmations to attract or to transform the things which we desire.
When you create an affirmation you are declaring to yourself and the universe that the desire is already created. As you continue to repeat these affirmations you are also holding your thoughts clear with an intense focus on the creation that you have made.
Affirmations serve many purposes when trying to manifest the things you want.
Applying the law of attraction can be hard when you try diligently to maintain positive uplifting thoughts. It’s almost impossible to monitor your thoughts twenty-four hours a day but when you create clear affirmations with details they become a great tool in controlling your thoughts and in turn influencing the law of attraction in your favor.
Here are three ways to use affirmations with your law of attraction practice to get great results.
1. The first step to using affirmations is to become very clear about what you want.
To become clear, you would need to write out all the details that you would like to see and experience is the thing that you want. The clearer you are about your intentions the more power you give to your affirmations.
2. Write a clear positive affirmation in the first person stating your desire as if it is already complete.
Never make statements such as, “ I wish I could be… or someday I can have or I don’t want to do…” These three statements are the most ineffective statements when creating your affirmations.
The affirmation must be created with power and faith to fully shift the law of attraction in your favor.
You must absolutely omit any words that tie you to the thing which you do not want. If you want to stop thinking negatively, it is best to state, “ I now think and feel most positively. My thoughts are happy and positive every moment of the day.”
3. Move into the affirmation with feeling.
Feeling adds power to your desires. Feelings generate an internal energy that allows your whole being to absorb your statement.
Many people find it a bit hard to really create success with their affirmations and that is as a result of stuck emotional energetic patterns that are difficult to
change. Many incredible techniques can shift those affirmations quite deeply that they make the attraction process even easier and more effective without the mindless repetition. How deeply are you willing to go to see the changes that you know are possible to have?
Manifestation And The Importance Of Living In The Present
Do you sometimes observe your mind? In the ancient Vedic scripture Bhagavad-Gita, Krishna says to Arjuna “One must deliver himself with the help of his mind, and not degrade himself. The mind is the friend of the conditioned soul, and his enemy as well. For him who has conquered the mind, the mind is the best of friends, but for one who has failed to do so, his mind will remain the greatest enemy.”
When you start observing your mind first the thing you might notice is that you don’t control it.
How many times you have read something, sometimes even trying to really concentrate on the subject, but then you caught yourself thinking about something completely different at the same time? You can observe your mind because you are not your mind, as you are not your body (This article is not about the “You are not your body” subject. I wrote more about it in “Introduction to Manifestation”)
To manifest what you want you to need to control your mind. You need to concentrate, meditate and visualize often.
You need to focus on the things you want to manifest. If you allow your mind to jump freely from one subject to another, like a monkey from a tree to tree, it will take you a long time to achieve your goals.
One aspect of this is the importance of living in the NOW.
You can notice that we often think about the past, and when we think about the past we tend to think about “old good times”. There are not “old good times”. We simply forget about bad times and think about good times mostly, because it allows us to escape from the present reality and live in a happy illusion.
The point is that the past, happy or sad is dead.
We can’t change it. It also doesn’t have any value for our manifesting purposes. Of course, we can hopefully learn from our past mistakes, but that’s it,
otherwise dwelling on the past is just a waste of time. If we don’t think about the past we usually think about the future. Often we are afraid of the future, sometimes we look at the future with hope. But the future is made in the present.
We need to start living in the present and concentrate on the present.
We need to be happy now. If we are happy now, we build our happy future. Because of that, it is very important to gradually control the mind and to live in
the now; try to be happy now. We can easily change our mind’s states. We can listen to some good music which we like, we can think about someone we
love or we can look at something beautiful. Whatever helps you to feel happy, and most important we can visualize the things we want in the future as already achieved.
A good way to get in a good mood is to do some simple yogic breathing exercises,
which very quickly help to achieve peace and control of the mind. Another good way is to practice gratitude for the things you have and the things you would like to have. You cannot feel unhappy when you feel grateful.
There are many different methods, but to start manifesting the things you want easily and quickly it’s good to find a good mentor or course, and follow the instructions. Reading about manifestation, the law of attraction, and self-improvement is always good, but the best is to take action and apply what you have learned.
