Let me reveal this powerful secret to you. It is for free and there is no catch. It is yours for personal use.
Why affirmation doesn’t work for you in the first place while it works for other people? It is for the simple reason being your unconscious (feeling mind) does not agree with your conscious (thinking mind). You have probably heard about that already but not the simple solution I will share with you today. If you can make these two minds congruent with each other all the time all you want to achieve will be possible- business or career success, love, abundance, successful marriage, perfect relationship, peace, travel, etc. Imagine what your life would be if you could make those quantum possibilities your reality.
Most people recite their affirmation for what they want to be, do or have over and over again everyday so that when the subconscious mind hears the suggestion your body will act it out. It is supposed to be a powerful suggestion to the unconscious so that you become the person you want to be or live the life you dream about. To attract what they want in their lives, people say their affirmation coupled with the vision of the image of their goal. To break a pile of bricks, great martial artists would visualize their hand already passed through those bricks and not how their hand would break those bricks using enormous amount of power. It will be an effortless success when they finally execute the visualized action. However, it is not that easy for the ordinary people who do not know how to use the power they already have. And that’s the point I want to raise here- you should not use affirmation excessively to get what you want because it will only lead to disappointments and frustrations. The power comes from the affirmation that one recites. If you are just like me before, one day you will conclude you don’t have any use for it and you will finally junk the idea. You have that power whether you believe it or not, you just have to know how to use it.
Let me reveal to you this powerful secret. It is for free and there is no catch. It is yours for personal use. Read and understand this carefully. The Universe is filled with possibilities and for us to make one or many of those possibilities our reality we must learn to lock in those possibilities in our thoughts by choosing what we want and then create the feeling of that choice as if we already have it. Remember, it is how you feel it and not just how you say and envision it. Affirmation will only help you in this exercise to clarify what you want. Visualization will only help you in this exercise if you will be able to see the image in your heart and if you can create the feeling associated with the image of your vision. The power sits in the heart so you have to learn to create the feeling from the heart and not from the conscious mind (thinking mind). And there is only one simple gauge to know if you are doing it right– when you use your mind to create the feeling, you judge that feeling, but when you use your heart you create a feeling without judging the feeling you create. And remember, the only feeling you can create is either LOVE or HATRED.
Here is a simple illustration:
- Think about what you want. Saying it out loud once or twice in the form of an affirmation will help you to focus and create that image in your mind.
- From your conscious mind, fill your thought with some emotions like joy or happiness, or peace.
- Bring that thought or vision down into your heart and create the feeling of LOVE. To create the feeling of LOVE, you must exercise gratitude while focusing your attention in the heart area. LOVE here means unconditional love, no judgment. When you succeed in doing this, (it is not always easy if you are a novice), then milk that feeling and stay there for as long as you can.
- Finally, when you are done with the exercise you have to make sure you are connected with your feeling every day. How? – By thinking about your goal first then shifting your attention to your heart. Remember to spend more time in the heart area. And because you have chosen the feeling of having it already in your life, consider it done.
Most people who really haven’t experienced the power of attraction in a positive way will always have the tendency to feel anxious, stressed out, fearful, worried about money, thinking when they’ll get the next money for tomorrow as they see their money running out.
I remember the days when my son would sometimes get some money from my wallet without telling me for whatever reason like he needed extra money for his school allowance or to buy some things for himself. I would find out about it later that day because of my habit of checking my wallet before I leave the house. And there are two kinds of emotions that I always experienced. First, when finances is really tight my reaction would always be negative- like anger and anxiety. Second, when cash flow is good my reaction could be positive- like happiness and tolerance. Based on those two reactions you can guess the outcome of how I would treat my son when I see him later that day. Well, those were the days.
Nowadays, there are times that I still feel it when my wallet is getting thinner. There are also times that I
really don’t notice it. One thing is for sure- Now, I never react and behave in the same manner I used to do
before about the subject of money. Why? Because I have already changed my neurology and created a new neuro-path (through NLP) so that my brain would go that way all the time whenever there’s seem to be a money issue, regardless of its form or nature. And because of that new path, I now experience a new pattern of attitude and behavior that is positive in nature no matter the “thickness or thinness of my wallet”. And because of that positive mental attitude that I have all the time, I now attract and continue to attract positive cash flow into my life.
So, you may ask, what about that new-neuro path and what does that have to do with the law of attraction? Without the knowledge of NLP technology, we tend to follow the law of attraction teachings like visualization. We visualize what we want for a certain period of time like at least 15 minutes everyday hoping that our unconscious will just accept that which is. And then after that visualization part is done, our vision about what we want is gone. And we do it repeatedly everyday. That is, if we can sustain that enthusiasm to visualize. Most of the time we abandon that visualization or meditation task when our patience starts to fade. That is normal. That happens to most people.
Applying the power of attraction is tricky in such a way that we need to have that enough power to sustain that vision in our mind and of course with an intense feeling in our heart if we want to do it right and manifest faster than we expect. This is where the technology of NLP can help us. And there are a number of techniques that you can apply and find out which one will resonate with your desire.
Take a look at that visualization or meditation task. Do you know why most people lose their patience after some time doing the visualization or meditation for what they want to do, be or have? It is simply because they are programmed to slow down and diminish their belief or faith in any process when things are not turning out well so fast. Then, they begin to turn their attention to what they think is the most important thing to do. So, goodbye creation process.
NLP process can program your brain to create that vivid vision in your mind, extract the right emotions(desire) from your belly, and create the intense feeling in your heart and most important, to create your connection with that vision and feeling throughout the day without losing your patience. So that, after your visualization or meditation task for the day is done, your vision and feeling will not be gone. You will have that connection with your desire all the time that is required to bring your creation into your reality. And it all happens in the unconscious all the time. You see, our unconscious runs on autopilot and most of the programs it runs may not be good programs that is why you are reading this page. I want you to relax now and know that you can step on the break and stop that old programs and create new ones.
In my next posts, I will talk about some practical ways and exercises (in series of short articles) on how to apply NLP with LOA in practical ways. So keep in touch.
Until next time.
