I’ve been using affirmations for years to varying levels of success. What I have heard over and over, and what I have found to be true, is that if the emotional energy behind them isn’t strong, the effectiveness will be limited at best. It’s been said that “the universe doesn’t hear what you say; the universe hears what you mean.” In addition, mental messages-to-self such as “I’m always broke” or “Just get by” are cumulative in effect on the psyche, and develop a slow and deeply ingrained type of momentum.
To that end, I have, in the past week or so, been very conscious of clearing out old long-standing ideas, thoughts, feelings, beliefs that I mentally tell myself are not productive but which linger. There’s no point on reading books, articles, listening to lectures on wealth consciousness… of visualizing the reality I claim to want… if the emotional work of what the soul has absorbed isn’t taken care of. I didn’t realize how deep it ran, but I refuse to claim it (any longer).
I wanted to share this with people only because one of the main factors in being FREE is to not care what people are going to think; to rise above fear of being judged negatively. And because I know someone else can probably benefit.
This morning, in/through meditation, I received an “updated” version of what resonates with me. I don’t call it an Affirmation, I call it a Declaration in the Now. Maybe someone else (you, whoever you are) will vibe with it as well. Every little bit helps.
I ENJOY FEELING THAT EVERYTHING IS ALWAYS PAID IN FULL AND TAKEN CARE OF, THAT I AND THE PEOPLE I LOVE ARE COMFORTABLE FINANCIALLY, MATERIALLY AND EMOTIONALLY, AND THAT I AM ABLE TO GIVE TO MY COMMUNITY IN WHATEVER WAY IS NEEDED. I AM ABLE TO DRAW CLOSER TO DIVINE SOURCE IN EVERYTHING I DO, FEEL, AND AM. I JOYFULLY CONTINUE TO GET CLEAR AND GET READY FOR WHATEVER IS NEXT WITH A FULL HEART EVERY MOMENT OF EVERY DAY.
So there it is… my (current) “Emotional Vision Statement.” If any of this resonates with you, let me know. The things I want more of–community, trust, interdependent power in relationship–are built partly through transparency. So I am claiming that as well.
