I’ve been giving a great deal of thought to when my affirmations work and when they don’t (even after looking at what’s behind them, see previous posts), and I’ve come to the conclusion that we have to be ready for that which we are asking or affirming. I mean really ready! That means on every level. We can’t say…be mentally ready yet emotionally not up to speed. Or be physically ready (take the right action) yet spiritually out of alignment.
So to get those affirmations to work we have to get down-and–dirty, we have to mean Business!
Are you ready, really? Where in your life might you be afraid of having what you want? Can you truly believe you can have it? Can you feel having it?
Let’s take a closer look at “how” to be ready so those pretty words can come to life.
To begin this microscopic process you’ll want to, first of all, take a deep breath (maybe a few breaths) and relax. I’m serious. If you feel anxious you won’t get far in figuring out what is between you and the life of your dreams.
Okay, so now that you are relaxed, you can get down to the heart of it.
As you sit quietly focusing on your breath, yes we’re back to the breath; envision having something you are wanting, just one thing, or say your affirmation. Don’t make it complicated; keep the picture or affirmation simple. While envisioning it or quietly repeating your affirmation, notice how you feel, what sensations are in your body? Where are they? What do they look like? How do you feel inside your body?
Do you feel heavy, light, nervous, empty, full; angry…what do you feel?
Now ask, while keeping your focus on your bodily sensations, what do I need to be ready to have what I want?
You may want to direct a question to each area such as – What do I need to be ready on a physical level, a mental level, an emotional level, a spiritual level, or you may want to ask, on an energetic level?
Keep breathing into your body while noticing any changes. Our bodies don’t lie!
You may not hear the answer right away or it may come, as if out of nowhere, suddenly.
If you don’t hear anything or sense anything, yet you feel anxious or unsettled or fearful, then you know that something (belief, issue, or fear) needs to be heard, needs to be healed, before your affirmation can come to life.
Sit with the sensations and breathe deeply into those not-so-comfortable sensations. Be with yourself. Ride the wave of whatever is going on within you. The breath will begin the healing process.
You may want to do this process several times, be patient, you deserve to know what is going on within you.
Life is always inside to outside.
Once you hear or sense what needs to be healed then take whatever healing action is necessary.
Now put that affirmation to use, sing it, dance it, shout it, whisper it, and have fun with your manifestation!
Thanks, I appreciate you!
