This article is a follow up to the one I wrote last Friday. I just firstly wanted to say huge thank you for the amazing responses and all the lovely ideas, suggestions and feedback, it was graciously appreciated!
Now that I’ve had a few days to mull over the responses and to experiment further, I wanted to do a brief post to display my thoughts on why affirmations work for some, not for others and how we can take affirmations to the next level to manifest exactly what it is that you want to manifest for your life.
First and foremost, if you haven’t seen The Secret I highly recommend it. If it’s something completely new to you it will give you a fresh perspective on life and give you some insights on some easy ways of manifesting your dreams into reality. I’m a firm believer that that only way to know is to try for yourself and so that’s what I’ve been doing ever since I first watched the secret back in May. I also purchased the book, “Ask & It Is Given” by Esther and Jerry Hicks on the teachings of Abraham.
Okay, now to the nitty gritty! :p
Why Affirmations Work For Some And Not For Others?
The simple answer is that it is not the affirmation that makes a difference on the level of result, it is the amount of “feeling” that the thoughts generate within you! So, whether you think: “I am rich and wealthy beyond my wildest dreams!” Or whether you think: “I intend one million pounds to come into my life!” is fairly irrelevant to a certain degree. If your intention is wealth then you need to think like a wealthy person! So if neither of those thoughts create any feeling of wealth within you and you are emptily saying those “worded” thoughts again and again in your head, then they will yield absolutely no result what so ever! If, through those thoughts, you feel, wealthy, abundant, prosperous, or happy, then you activate the L.O.A. to bring you closer to that which you desire.
Taking Affirmations To The Next Level
Affirmations are a very good way of conditioning the mind to flow towards the thing you desire most. However I believe that there is much more powerful way to get you to the happy feeling state of “having in the now” which takes all of what we talked about before, rolls it up, adds a dash of lemon, and then hey presto you have the recipe of manifestation!
Hurry Up; Tell Us What Is The Next Step?
Tell yourself a story, in your mind about yourself and all the things that you wish you bring into your experience. Let me just first explain the process: –
1. Worded Thought
2. P.I.C.’s (The creation of images in your mind)
3. Experiential Feelings
Secondly, according to the teachings of The Secret and the law of attraction there is no such concept as delusion! Remember that whether you’re remembering, imagining or observing, you are in a constant state of attraction. So every thought you hold attracts, even the ones that we may potentially class as ‘delusional’, they are still attracting.
Now, begin a story, in your mind with worded thought. E.g. I am living in a beautiful 7 bedroom house which is white in colour. I have a huge drive way, with plenty of space for my *insert your favorite car or cars here* which is blue in colour. Inside the house, on my right, is my living room which is furnished with wooden floors, deep brown sofas, and paintings of wall of my favorite artist, Salvador Dali. *Continue from here*
You can carry on with as much description as you like, in fact, the more the better. Add in the woman or man of you dreams; what will you be doing together? What is it like when you invite your friends over to the house? Do you have a tennis court? On and on, carry on for as long as you like!
What will gradually happen over time is that your mind will generate the images associated with those words, and then you will start to feel as if you’re already there experiencing the whole perfect scene right now. Eventually the idea is to let those feelings, through the power of the Universe, attract into your life, exactly what it is that you want!
The longer you hold onto this flow of thoughts, the more power you give it! In Ask and it is given it states that after only approximately 17 seconds of focusing your thoughts on a subject is the L.O.A. activated. It you can hold your attention on that thought for 68 seconds and it’s vibration is powerful enough the manifestation process begins! (What a truly magnificent thought! Now to put it to the test!)
This, as far as I can see, is the fastest way to attract into your life the desires you wish to experience. The more detailed the story you tell yourself, the bigger the manifestation, the longer you can hold onto those experiential feelings, the quicker that manifestation! 🙂
I may be wrong, I may just be stating the obvious, I may even be repeating what someone else has already said without even realising it, but this is a great and quick way to manifest your desires. Don’t just take my word for it, go and experiment, try it for yourself, tell yourself grand stories to generate those feelings and activate the greatest human creative force in the Universe!
