One of the most powerful tools for creating the life that you desire is affirmations – also known as mantras in the east.
Affirmations and mantras has been practiced around the planet for thousands of years. In fact the most successful, wealthiest, enlightened, and healthiest people in the history of our planet have used affirmations to achieve extraordinary and high levels of clarity, focus, and richness of life that most only dream of.
Over time, what was only known by sages and monarchy, the wealthy and prosperous, began to be disseminated to others. Today, most people have either tried to use affirmations or mantras, or at the least know what they are.
Few people, however, truly know the precise way to use affirmations and mantras for the purpose of manifesting of goals, dreams, and desires, whether this means peace, love, prosperity, health, etc.
Here you will find the authentic method of using affirmations so that you may create your very own for the purpose of achieving heightened states of peace, awareness, clarity, wealth and prosperity, success, and more loving connections with others.
When creating and using affirmations or personal mantras there are four essential keys to keep in mind.
You want to:
1. Create a sentence or phrase in words – that YOU would actually use – when what you are stating becomes true.
One of the most common reasons people use affirmations is to attract wealth and the following two affirmations may be the most used and least effective affirmations:
I am a money magnet!
I am a millionaire.
The important key to keep in mind is that most millionaires do not go out and tell everyone… “I am a millionaire!” or “I am a money magnet”. Instead they say, “I am financially secure, independent and free.” amongst other things. As a millionaire you might also say, “Money just continues to flow abundantly into my life!”
2. State your affirmation in a positive way without focusing on what you wish to avoid.
Instead of focusing on what you don’t want, focus on what you DO want!
If you are having health troubles, an affirmation of, “My immune system is strong and I feel really good!” is much more effective than “My cold is getting better”.
Do focus on the end result you want to achieve. Do state your desire with only positives, thereby avoiding words like ‘not, have to, should, must’.
3. Use mantras and affirmations as a declaration of what has already been manifested or created in your life (similar to pretending it is already here).
One of the keys I discuss in my Synchronicity workshops and for that matter that has been talked about at length in the bible, Dead Sea Scrolls and other ancient texts, is to repeat the phrase as if it is already here.
Instead of repeating something that you don’t have (and hence will continue to not have), you are repeating something with words and with every cell in your body, feeling and knowing as if you already have it. This is called the Lost of Mode of Prayer and is why some people receive the opportunities, items and experiences that they prayed for or repeated through mantras/affirmations and why others do not.
4. Feel your mantra and affirmation!
Rather than just saying it and this being a mental and intellectual exercise, you must experience what you are saying as if it is already here and as if every cell in your being is in a heightened state of feeling gratitude, strength, clarity, love, peace etc about what you are repeating.
These four keys although seemingly basic, will make the difference for whether your mantra and affirmation will actually be effective.
Affirmations are very effective when created according to these four keys and can be used when dealing with family, finances, health, social relationships, emotions, material items, mental abilities, and life’s path or work life.
Just below and up to the right, you will find a list of affirmations or mantras that can be very useful for various areas of your life.
For affirmations to work for you, there are a three elements that are necessary:
Patience is first and foremost as it can take time for your ‘system’ to begin to resonate with the statement you are repeating.
Consistency is absolutely integral. Repeat your affirmation(s) each day for at least 30 days many times throughout the day. In East Indian culture it is common to repeat mantras 108 times to correspond to the number of deities that exist in that culture. This means repeating your affirmation 108 times in succession.
Further if you repeat your affirmation until you are saying it without thought (in other words your mind begins to wander), then you will be embedding the affirmation into your subconscious mind.
Discipline may be required to keep you on track with saying affirmations when you ‘don’t feel like it’ or have other ‘things’ that you need to do. Discipline will also help you to keep saying these affirmations even when you have achieved your desired outcome.
Feel free to repeat the affirmations below and up to the right yourself and/or change the wording so that they reflect sentences you would actually say.
“More than $5,000.00 flows easily to me each month into my wallet/purse and into my bank account!”
“I am doing what I love and really love what I do!”
“I am a genius and I apply my wisdom!” – From the book The Breakthrough Experience, by Dr. John Demartini
“I have more than 30 paying coaching clients per week!”… this is for you if you are a coach, consultant or therapist. Feel free to adapt this to your particular business.
“I am whole and vibrant in all ways.”
