Thinking is a mixture of words, sentences, mental images and sensations.
Thoughts are like visitors, who visit the central station of the mind. They come, stay a while, and then go away, making space for other thoughts.
Some of these thoughts stay longer, gain power, and affect the life of the person thinking them. Others, appear for a short while, and then disappear, leaving no impression on the mind.
- Do you, like most people, let thoughts connected with worries, fears, anger or unhappiness occupy your mind most of the time?
- Do you keep occupying your mind with inner conversation about negative situations and actions?
Such inner conversation eventually, affect the subconscious mind, which accepts them as real, and consequently, can affect your health and your behavior.
What You Repeat in Your Mind Can Affect Your Life
It is of vital importance to be careful of what goes into the subconscious mind. Words and thoughts that are repeated often get stronger by the repetitions, sink into the subconscious mind and affect the behavior, actions and reactions of the person involved.
The subconscious mind regards the words and thoughts that get lodged inside it as expressing and describing a real situation, and therefore, it strives to align the words and thoughts with reality. It works diligently to make these words and thoughts a reality in the life of the person saying or thinking them.
This means that if you often tell yourself that it is difficult or impossible to acquire money, the subconscious mind will accept your words and put obstacles on your way.
If you keep telling yourself that you are rich, it will find ways to bring you opportunities to get rich, and motivate you toward taking advantage of these opportunities.
The thoughts that you express through your words shape your life. This is often done unconsciously. Few pay attention to their thoughts and the words they use while thinking. Most people let outside circumstances and situations determine what they think about.
In this case, there is no freedom. You allow the outside world to affect your life and behavior.
If you choose consciously the thoughts, sentences and words that you repeat in your mind, your life will start to change. You will begin creating new situations and circumstances. You will be using the power of affirmations.
Affirmations are sentences that are repeated often during the day, and which sink into the subconscious mind, which in turn, releases its enormous power to materialize the intention of the words and phrases in the outside world.
This does not mean that every word you utter will bring results. In order to trigger the subconscious mind into action, the words have to be said with attention, intention and with feeling.
In order to obtain positive results, affirmations have to be phrased in positive words. Look at the following two sentences:
1. I am not weak anymore.
2. I am strong and powerful.
Though both sentences seem to express the same idea, they do so in different words. The first sentence is phrased in negative words. It creates in the mind a mental image of weakness. This is wrong wording.
The second sentence is positive and awakens in the mind a mental image of strength.
You Need to Repeat Affirmation in a Certain Way
It is not enough to repeat an affirmation a few times, and then expect your life to change. More than this is necessary. It is important to affirm with attention, as well as with strong desire, faith and persistence. It is also important to choose the right affirmation for any specific situation. You need to feel comfortable with it; otherwise the affirmation might not work or may bring you something that you do not really want.
Affirmations can be used together with creative visualization, since they complement each other. This is especially useful for people who find it difficult to visualize. In this case, the words serve as a substitution to creative visualization.
Remember, repetitive words are like a hammer chiseling a stone. You need to be aware of your repetitive words, and allow into your mind only the ones you want.
