Visualization and affirmations

One thing we have learned through John Assaraf’s Having it All Challenge, is the importance of daily affirmations, or as John calls it, the Neural Reconditioning Program (NRP).   Repeating positive affirmations about yourself and your goals will actually help lay down new neural pathways, so that you can change your old patterns of thinking.  

If you have a story that you keep repeating over and over in your life, you literally have the power to change your story through NRP! Believe me, it works.  Just in the few months that I have been religiously doing my NRP, I have seen changes in all areas of my life, from financial, to spiritual and in my relationships. 

At first you may not believe what you are saying (like “I am wealthy and have an income of $300,000 a year”, or “I am in a beautiful relationship with a partner who loves and respects me”).  But when you keep on repeating them over and over, in addition to physically changing your brain, you actually start to act in accordance with what you are saying, and you will create what you are seeking in your life.  As John says, “Fake it until you make it.” By repeating your affirmations several times a day (preferably when your mind is in a receptive alpha state such as early morning or just before you go to sleep) you can change any limiting beliefs you have about yourself.

Do you believe you are the way you are because of your parents, your society, your upbringing?  Do you think you have no choice on how to create your future?  Do you constantly repeat things over and over to yourself like, “I’m so fat”, “I’m not good enough”, “I don’t deserve to be rich”, or “I’m this way because of ‘XYZ'”?  Even in jest we say to our friends and acquaintances “I lose everything!” or “I am always late!”  And you know what?  It becomes a self-fulfilling prophesy. 

If you answered yes to any of the above, then you have created that situation in your life. It’s not because of your parents, or how you were raised!  It’s your thoughts that have created this situation for you.  Your thoughts can change your future – for better or for worse. So you might as well think the positive thoughts that will help you create a better future for yourself!

If you think you are not good at manifesting, think again.  You are excellent at manifesting!  Everything you already have, you have created, both the good and the bad. If it’s not to your liking, then that’s the time to do some soul searching and ask yourself how you are talking to yourself, especially on a subconscious level.   

One of my favorite books is by Wayne Dyer, called “You’ll see it when you believe it.”  It’s not the other way around, you have to believe it first and then you will create it. 

Mike Dooley says, “Thoughts are Things.  Choose the Good ONes!”  

I wanted to share with you an amazing way to create your own affirmations, record them with your own voice, and put them into an mp3 that you can listen to anytime you want to either on a cd or on your iPod.  It’s so amazingly simple and fun to do, and you can even choose your own music or select from their collection.  You will love the Vision Guider software

Happy Visualizing!

  1. I echo what you say about affirmations and visualisation. Everything and all things start as a thought. Once that thought is conceived, it is visualised and then it becomes real.

    The power of affirmations and visualisation in unlimited. Every person will benefit from adopting them into their daily lives, and, more importantly, sticking to it. For some, changes will happen quickly, to others it may take several months.

    If you want the change badly enough, you will continue with the affirmations until your goal is manifested.

    Be persistent and committed.
