Many of us go through life only to realize that things aren’t what we’d like them to be. Whether it be an unhealthy relationship, body, bank account, whatever, something is amiss. And most of us feel pretty powerless to change it.
When I took the Core Transformation workshop from the wonderfully gifted instructors Alain and Jody Herriott, one of the more profound statements presented during the workshop was, “We effect change in others by effecting change in ourselves”. This reference was made in regard to energy healing, but it applies beautifully to our everyday life, as well.
When you are willing to change your attitude, about anything at all, from negative to positive, you will effect change in your life. If you work in energy healing, you’ll find that your clients will almost magically begin to experience much faster and better results. If you’re working through relationship issues, you’ll see a dramatic shift to the better in your interactions. Life at the office improves. And on it goes.
We are creatures of habit. Beliefs are thoughts that we have repeated over and over and over again. We have it within us to recreate our belief system by changing the thoughts we think. Even if we’re thinking thoughts that are in completely new territory, they can become the norm. We simply need to be patient with them and let them develop.
If you’ve been at the receiving end of negative affirmations from others, e.g., “You’ll never amount to anything,” you can change your own belief from that unhealthy one to one that is healthy. And true! So, how might you go about this?
I recommend that people figure out what works for them through experimentation. Affirmations and Afformations are excellent tools, especially when used in conjunction with focused meditation and constructive daydreaming to deepen their power and help put the muzzle on any of our disbelief. Personally, I have found Afformations to be more powerful than affirmations, but your mileage may vary. Afformations really didn’t do much for me until I discovered the whole daydreaming angle.
As you become more familiar with your new way of thinking, your mind will become a mirror of that thinking. Your beliefs will change and you will suddenly have discovered that you’re, in fact, a new person.
