How to get more mileage from your affirmations

AFFIRMATIONS: HOW TO GET MORE MILEAGE FROM YOURS


Hello! I want to share with you a couple of ways to do affirmations that will get your mind more focused and working on them, instead of it feeling like you’re just beating a drum, always to the same beat, to the point of not even paying attention to them. Or it might be just me! I can’t say affirmations for more than a minute without my mind outsourcing them, putting that task in automatic mode on the background, while I’m thinking of other things. Mental multitasking isn’t the best way to do affirmations, as there’s no emotional connection to what you’re affirming, and, as you know, it’s your emotions that create your reality. 🙂

So, my suggestions. Since your mind is a solution seeking brilliant “device”, it’s a LOT more effective to give it something to look for (answers, solutions or proof) that serves you and what you want to experience, instead of giving it flat statements or commands. Questions engage your mind and gives it a focus, so it will look for the way for you to get to where you want to be.

With that in mind, here are 2 ways of doing affirmations

This first one I learned from Christie Marie Sheldon and its format is “What would it take for…?”. After the “for” you put whatever it is that you want to experience, like “What would it take for me to feel happy and relaxed all day?”, or “What would it take for me to receive an extra $5000 in the next 30 days?”. You can easily adapt any goal or affirmation into this format.

This second one is my adaptation of Christie’s question. It incorporates the awareness that there’s nothing really outside of us (in our experience) and anything and everything that we attract is because we are broadcasting that frequency. It exists in us and we are it too. The format is “What do I have to be to…?” and after that, you describe you living your experience. This could look like “What do I have to be (or become) to receive an extra $5000 in the next 30 days?”. You then allow your energy to make the necessary adjustments, expanding what characteristics are necessary and releasing what is not. You’ve set your intention, that’s all it takes to start these changes.

And an important note here: after asking these expanding questions, you don’t want to go looking for the answer with your rational mind. Just ask them as open questions and let them go. Repeat them as often as you want, and then release them. The answers will come to you by inspiration, ideas, encounters, intuition, memories coming up to be released… You’ll get your perfectly tailored answer delivered straight to you, and you’ll notice it, because it will have either a strong charge and intensity to it, or it will coming to your conscious attention time and time again! 🙂

Give it a try and see how this feels and works for you!
