You know the saying that “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again expecting a different result.” Using affirmations to re-pattern the subconscious mind is a powerful tool.What is an affirmation? Well, Louise Hay was and is a pioneer and trailblazer when it comes
to affirmations. She believes that what we think about ourselves becomes our TRUTH. She states in her “You Can Heal Your Life” book that “every thought we think is creating our future.”
We know that our beliefs become our reality, and no one and nothing can change that belief if we feel a conviction. She goes on to say that “most of us have foolish ideas about who we are and many, many rigid rules about how life ought to be.” We are all doing the best we can being who we are with what we know at any given time. If we knew better we would make different choices.
Ultimately, we all are striving to be the best we can be. Have you ever looked back on an experience in your life and wished you knew then what you know now? I know I have! All we can do is learn and grow from the experience and make better choices in the future, right? Well, that’s where affirmations come in.
Affirmations are positive statements that describe a desired situation or result. They are repeated many times in order to impress the subconscious mind to create a positive response and action. They lift the spirit and can change the way you feel or perceive yourself as well as your life.
Affirming what you want in your life rather than what you don’t want will rewire your thinking. This interrupts the old neuro-pathways, while creating new mental patterns and creating new neuro-pathways. Affirmations are just one of the powerful techniques we teach at WHLI (Women’s Holistic Lifestyle Institute). With the daily practice of paying attention to your thoughts and feelings you can redirect your thoughts and affirm what you are committed to creating. You have the capacity to create miracles in all areas of your life. You are actually programming your subconscious mind to learn in a new way. Now this is true empowerment!
Think about what you want to create differently in your life. Write these down in the format of a statement, such as: “I now choose to he healthy, wealthy and happy” “I am loved and lovable” ” I have plenty of energy” etc. Imagine them to be true as you say them out-load. Your subconscious mind believes everything you say with emotion to be TRUE. Be careful with you feel and say to yourself. Everything is in thought before it becomes matter. This is quantum physics. Write them on a card or post-it and post them around your home, office and car. Have fun playing with these ideas.
