Get Clear and Get Ready….shifting energy

Leave a comment

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.

Talking about myself is probably my least favorite part about this kind of stuff because I'm a little all over the place. I call the blog "Aspiring Optimist" because I am driven to look on the proverbial bright side, but don't always succeed. Like anyone else, there are things that put a knot in my chest, that wake me up at night like an internal chorus of crickets. But I also believe that if you keep living and trying and working and planning, things have a way of getting better. I love to write, mostly for myself to maintain some semblance of worldly sanity and to work out the kinks. Unless some other people I know who also write, I may occasionally indulge a bad idea or two or three in the privacy of pen and paper so that I can get it out of my head and move on. But I also manage to produce poetry and some short fiction of varying levels of quality. I gravitate toward the esoteric, unusual, nature-ish, ancient history and generally cosmic side of things. I like to know a little about everything, but could do much better about knowing a lot about a few things...I probably would be a lot wealthier if I did. I love God, my family, and the ideas of freedom, equality, and peace. And I guess I don't hate talking about myself nearly as much as I thought I did.
