How did it go yesterday?
Did you repeat the affirmations aloud, with feeling and visualization three times?
Did you write down the affirmations in your phone or on a card to carry with you?
We’re going to be adding to those two affirmations today, so it’s important to write them down.
And also, did you set up three reminders so it happens by default?
If not, stop everything and do it right now.
This message is set to self-destruct in 60 seconds and evaporate into thin air soon if you haven’t done that step!
Just kidding 😉
But seriously, you need to do it!
Don’t rely on your memory, you don’t have the habit yet.
After it’s a habit you can drop the reminders, not until then.
Okay, all set? Great!
Up until now we’ve been focused on just two affirmations to get you started right by making it super simple.
Now, if you’d like, go ahead and add in a few more.
Over the next week or so I’m going to share my personal affirmations that I have either written or gathered from various sources.
Feel free to use any of them that you want or to use them as ideas to create your own.
I place my personal affirmations in groupings as you’ll see, which has helped me memorize them.
It’s valuable to memorize your affirmations over time because it makes it simpler to speak them directly to yourself in the mirror…which is very powerful.
Here is the group I call ‘Faith’ on my personal daily affirmations sheet:
1 – With God ALL things are possible.
2 – All things are possible to him who believes.
3 – I help people massively increase their enjoyment of life.
4 – I free others from the bondage and suffering of their inner tyrant.
5 – I walk by faith, and not by sight.
6 – Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
7 – Whatever things you ask for when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you shall have them.
That’s just seven, there are a bunch more and I’ll share them all with you.
My habit is to repeat my big list of affirmations with feeling and visualization at least once per day.
I do it in the morning, right after I meditate, very first thing when I wake up each day.
This takes between 5 and 15 minutes, depending on how much time I spend visualizing.
I always repeat the entire list, and generally a few of the affirmations will stand out to me, so I spend more time visualizing and allowing emotions to build around those.
But in addition to my big list of affirmations, I also use a short list of 5 to 10 new affirmations for key beliefs I want to install.
I make a special focus of repeating this short list at least 2 to 3 times per day for 30 days, just like I’m recommending for you.
This extra emphasis imprints them deeper into the subconscious.
Then after about 30 days, I will pick 5 to 10 different beliefs to place my focus on.
This is a practice I intend to do throughout my life.
It is one of the most powerful and important tools I use in constantly growing and creating the life I want.
Now, let’s go even deeper…
The next step for even deeper subconscious imprinting is to actually re-write each of your key affirmations twice per day with a pen on paper.
Don’t use a computer if possible.
I recommend using any small simple notebook.Or you can write on lined paper placed in it’s own separated ‘tab’ in a 3-ring binder.
That’s how I do all my journaling now, for reasons I explain in depth in a separate book.
Any notebook or journal will suffice for this practice…so don’t get hung up on that.
There is something very powerful about the act of physically writing your beliefs.
Getting your physical movement involved in establishing the belief creates new neural pathways in your brain faster than just speaking or thinking thoughts.
So today, grab a notebook or binder of paper and write down the 2 main affirmations as you visualize living them in your mind.
And feel free to add one or two affirmations to your routine. I’ll share more of mine tomorrow.
Make Today Amazing!
