– I am so elated with
– I am thrilled, excited to the core
– I love my life and I am so excited Now that ..
Note: Every time the affirmation is repeated, immerse yourself in emotional experiences, as if you are in at that moment.
Affirmation Rule – II
Phrase it to convey that the goal has already been achieved. Everything should to be in present tense, as if already accomplished. Practice of including the words “ ‘NOW’ that” in the affirmation is directed to make logical mind infer that the goal has already been accomplished. ‘It is done’ is also included for the same purpose. Repetitions, visualizations, high focus & auric changes will impress this onto the sub-conscious mind over a period of time.
– I am well.
– I am prosperous. – I am happy. – I am healthy. – My relationship with ‘xyzee’ is very good and nurturing.
Affirmation Rule – III
Use positive phrases only. The word ‘No’ , ‘Not’ or any other word having negative connotation should ‘not’ figure in the affirmation.
Example – If you want to express that you do not have fever – “ I am in perfect health, physically & medically fit, better & better every moment.” Keep repeating in your mind till recovery.
Affirmation Rule – IV
Be precise on what you want. Define everything to the last detail like a computer programming code. If you want to buy a car, define the model, colour, type of engine, etc, everything which will remove the variable choices and make it precise.
For certain unquantifiable entities, be as precise as you can be. Example – My desires are balanced and aligned to divine will etc.
Affirmation Rule – V
Use an intuitive guidance (what comes to your mind) to decide the time frame when the goal can be accomplished. This is the only entity that will be in future reference in the affirmation.
Affirmation Rule – VI
Do not mix up too many things at once. Follow one step at a time. If you want to be slimmer, financially stronger and improve your public speaking abilities too, decide your order of priority and work on them one by one for best results. Trying to cook a mixed soup may not work out as good. If you decide to work on them together, try using separate affirmations.
Affirmation Rule – VII
Make affirmation mythology aesthetic, creative and appealing. You should feel happy when you look at the written affirmation.It should be as attractive and beautiful as you can make it. If you are recording it for repeated listening, make it melodious, filled with expressive modulation and good background music if possible. If you are using it with a visualization board, make it so appealing that you feel like looking at it again and again.
Use any symbols or representation that bring positive energy to the affirmation. It may be a picture, symbol, a pictographic representation or phrase drawing the kind of energy required for achieving the goal of affirmation. Example – A Heart for Love, a Swastika for Money, Picture of meditating monk for peace etc.
Infusing creativity will focus your mind onto the result better & better, instilling faster refinements in your mental faculty.
