The Law of Attraction is NOT Enough To Achieve Your Goals

So you’ve thought about your goals, written them down and maybe even written an action plan. Now what? You just wait and the universe will deliver?

Wrong! The most important step in setting and achieving your goals is creating a neural coherence pattern. It sounds a bit scientific, but all developing a “neural coherence pattern” entails, is aligning what you want in your conscious mind with what you think and believe in your subconscious mind. In order to implement your written goals you put your heart and soul into getting down on paper, you need to align your subconscious and conscious thoughts.

Commit to Visualization and Your Affirmations

MindCommit to Visualization and Your Affirmations
Your visualizations and affirmations should accurately describe the life you want to live. This is your vision. You can design it any way you want. Exercise your creativity and ingenuity. Have fun! As you create a vision of your future and support it with your affirmation, you will begin to see things you never saw before. Here are some other tips to help you program your nonconscious mind with visualizations and affirmations.

Understand Your Brain to Use Visualization

VisualizeLet’s take a look at what happens in our brain when we visualize the future. There are two parts of our brain—the conscious and the subconscious. The conscious part of the brain is the part we are aware of; the conscious brain focuses on one thing at a time, whatever we think is important at the moment.

The subconscious brain doesn’t think this way. The subconscious brain sees a complete picture of everything happening all at once. The subconscious mind is aware of the input from all of your senses at every moment.

Repeat Your Affirmations Daily

Repeat Your Affirmations DailyEvery time you read or listen to an affirmation, it becomes a stronger force in your life. Repeat your affirmations at least twice a day—morning and night. I find myself repeating my affirmations throughout the day, repeating them over and over. Soon you will have most of them memorized.

Are you affirmation positive or negative? We may not always be aware of it, but we all create and repeat affirmations constantly. The problem is, we typically don’t pay attention to exactly what those affirmations are saying. Often we go through the day giving ourselves all sorts of contradictory, or even negative messages. We may project confidence to the world around us, while our inner dialogue says… I hope this works. I am so nervous about this. I hope I don’t blow it. Affirmations are self fulfilling prophecies. If we say, This is never going to work… then chances are excellent it never will.

Get into the feelings, emotions and associations you have with affirmations. Feel so jazzed up about what you are saying that you feel like it is already there. When you are able to really get into that feeling place, this is when the new neural connections are created. It is essential to remember emotions, clarity and feelings are the key ingredients to creating effective affirmations that will produce results in your world.

 

Laminate your affirmations. Have your affirmations laminated. Make a couple of copies for home, work, your car and next to your bed.

 

Use technology to bombard your nonconscious brain with the declarations of the world you want to create. Technology has given us all sorts of wonderful tools we can use.

Audio:Play your affirmations while you are jogging or working out, cleaning house—anytime you would ordinarily listen to music.

Subliminal Audio and Video:You can play subliminal audio and video recordings to yourself throughout the day.

Subliminal Software:There is software available that will play your affirmations to you by flashing them almost invisibly on your computer screen.

When we have absolute clarity about what it is we wish to create, and repeat our affirmations daily, the Law of Attraction does its part with providing you with all you need to create what you want.

Make Your Affirmations Stronger with Neural Linking

 

Make Your Affirmations Stronger with Neural LinkingNeural linking uses emotional association to deepen the impact of your affirmations. By linking your affirmations with feelings that already exist in your memory, you can create emotional anchors that will make your affirmations even more powerful.

Most likely, you have memories that are so powerful and vivid you can revisit them and feel the same way you felt when that memory was created. That’s what you need to do to create a neural link. For example, I go back to a moment and reexperience the feeling I had of being in complete control, on top of the world when I was playing an unforgettable basketball game—and then I think “I am a brilliant and savvy businessperson.”

Affirmation Best Practices

AffirmationsAffirmations—clear, definitive statements declaring something is so—solidify your ideas of where you want to go or how you want to change. Without exception, positive affirmation is the key to all advancement and achievement. The most powerful and successful affirmations are the ones we design around our goals in the areas of our life that are most important to us.

The key to effective affirmations is that they must be bold, clear, positive and stated in the present tense. Get absolute clarity on what you want to create.

Here are some other affirmation best practices:

Own your affirmations—the feelings and associations you have with these words. Get into the feelings and emotions of your affirmations by experiencing your statements as if they are already true. Our outside world is a reflection of our internal programming. Always.

Repetition is the mother of learning. When you first begin your affirmations, your old beliefs will fire up. This is normal. Just return to your affirmation and you will change the hard-wiring in your brain.

 

Don’t quit. Act like it’s true. Feel like it’s true. Stay positive and confident that everything you are doing will produce results because the repetition of the affirmation is teaching your brain how to think.

Use negative self-talk to identify barriers to your success.

Once you get the hang of it, you can actually use your negative self-talk to catch any negative, non-supportive beliefs that are blocking you from achieving success in your goals.

What you put out is what you get back. When you become more, you will have more. you give your attention, energy and focus, is what you will attract into your life.

Making Your Affirmations More Powerful

Making Your Affirmations More Powerful

“The greatest discovery of my generation is that human beings can alter their lives by altering their attitudes of mind. —William James

When you create affirmations, you need to focus on what you want, not on what you don’t want. People often articulate their goals in negative terms. For example, “I want to be in a fulfilling, lifelong relationship” and “I don’t want to end up sad and alone” might seem like two ways of saying the same thing. They’re not. To your subconscious brain, they are saying the opposite. Your subconscious doesn’t know the difference between “I want” and “I don’t want.” It just hears “lifelong, fulfilling relationship” or “sad and alone.”
If you want to master your affirmation to create the wealth and prosperity you desire, I will show you how. While positive affirmations come in many forms, the structure remains the same. Whatever form you choose, be as clear, specific and succinct as possible:

I am: A statement of who you are.

These are positive affirmations of a real state of being that exists in you. You can achieve a full list of ‘I am’ statements by taking a personal positive inventory of your attributes, strengths, talents and competencies.

  • I am perfectly healthy in mind, body and spirit.
  • I am a genius and I use my wisdom daily.
  • I am passionate about everything I do.

I can: A statement of your potential.

This is a positive expression of your ability to accomplish goals. It is a statement in your belief in your power to grow, change and help yourself. I can statements could be designed after you have a set of goals.

  • I can love my partner unconditionally.
  • I can stop smoking easily.
  • I can grow my business and be financially free.

I will: A statement of positive change in your life.

Positive affirmations of what you want to happen. It is a success prophecy. I will statements are developed after you have set your priorities and goals. Many times the word “will” can be removed to bring the statement to the present.

  • I will love and nurture myself better each day.
  • I will gain more confidence each day.
  • I will do my visualizations daily.

You can intensify your affirmations with a single word—easily.

I am earning $1,000,000 a month versus I am easily earning $1,000,000 a month.

Notice how the wordeasily adds a sense of calmness and intensifies the positive emotional impact of the affirmation?

Here are some other ways to make your affirmations stronger:

1) Make sure your affirmations are bold, clear, and positive.

2) Practice saying your affirmations for 30 minutes a day. Say them in your head and out loud, even if it’s awkward for you.Your new vision takes courage and you can’t wait for your affirmations to feel genuine, they won’t feel genuine until you start believing them.

3) When you start doubting your affirmations, realize your non-conscious brain is sending you a signal based on your conditioning—not on what you are capable of achieving.

4) Keep recommitting to the process. Every time you set a goal higher, commit to re-articulating that goal and imprinting it onto your non-conscious brain.

5) Along with your affirmation, take action.

6) An affirmation alone will not cause results to happen in your life, unless you have the right plan to back up that affirmation and are taking daily action in accordance with the plan.

Remember that affirmations take some time, but once you begin the process, you will be surprised by just how quickly it happens. At first, it feels like a lot of effort without much result, but soon the momentum of the process begins to take over. Within you is a genius yearning to express itself. All you need is to learn how to use your conscious faculties to tap into the phenomenal power of that non-conscious brain of yours.

After all, (read this out loud): I can achieve whatever I set my mind to.

How To Make Affirmations Work For You

How to Make Affirmations Work for You

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit. —Aristotle

Just imagine: If you could have it all, what would do and be in your life? What feats would you dare to accomplish and where would you go? Just imagine your life, lived without limits.In order to reach an intended destination, you have to know your intended destination. Affirmations—clear, definitive statements declaring something is so—solidify your ideas of where you want to go or how you want to change. Without exception, positive affirmation is the key to all advancement and achievement. The most powerful and successful affirmations are the ones we design around our goals in the areas of our life that are most important to us: money, health, spiritual connection, a job you love, and great relationships with your family and friends. If you don’t take the time to decide what you want for yourself, circumstance or someone else will choose for you. This is not how life is supposed to be.

Growing up, I developed the belief that I was not very good at achieving worthwhile things in life. I ran around with a crowd of kids who were up to no good, and seemed destined for a life of failure. When I first began creating goals and visions for myself in business, it was critical that I create new beliefs around my abilities as a businessperson—otherwise my existing beliefs would end up sabotaging every new goal I set for myself.

I wrote a statement for myself that was in such stark contrast to what I had grown up believing, it still resonates with huge impact to this day:

I am a brilliant and savvy businessman.

Mind you, when I wrote this, I didn’t believe it. Not one bit. And there was a very good reason: It wasn’t true. Not yet. But I decided I would like it to be true. That is who I wanted to become. And the only way that would happen would be if I designed that new belief and entrained it into my brain.

Over the years, I have added to the list and redesigned the statements I tell myself…Here are a few:

  • I give myself permission to be powerful.
  • I have absolute certainty in my ability to generate any amount of income I choose.
  • Money is flowing to me from both expected and unexpected sources.

Affirmations are self-fulfilling prophecies. Think of affirmations as the core principles of the life you are visualizing. Affirmations are your To Be List—powerful reminders throughout the day that keep you on track toward your goals and dreams. You deserve to decide for yourself exactly what and who you’ll become and what you’ll acquire along the way.

Through a process we call neural reconditioning, you can take those goals and dreams and turn them into neural patterns in your subconscious brain. Let’s take the analogy of running a marathon. Whether or not you’ve ever actually run a marathon before, you probably have a pretty good idea of what it takes to get in shape for something like this. It’s not just something you can decide one day and do the next. It takes time and consistency. It takes an applied methodical effort. You need to workout daily, breaking in your system bit by bit, toning and strengthening your muscles, training your lungs and heart, until gradually your entire system had become acclimated to the new demands you are asking of it. You see, your entire nervous system is set up to help you establish habits. After it understands that you want to perform an activity over and over again, it makes those corresponding neural pathways very efficient so that it becomes easier for you.

This is exactly what you are going to do with your brain. Positive affirmations form new facts and data for the subconscious brain to hardwire. It takes daily, consistent effort.

Here’s how you can begin to recondition your brain:

Create a new, powerful, physical and mental vision. Make your goals emotionally rich and crystal clear.

Create powerful declarations and affirmations in each category—health, wealth, relationships, business and spirituality—that support your new vision.

Use a portfolio of imprinting material, which may include written, auditory, visual and subliminal pieces. Through repetition—affirmations on audio, visualization and meditation—you will begin to replace your old beliefs and habits with new ones.

Maintain a daily routine of reconditioning techniques: For five to seven minutes, three times a day, use photos, vision boards, mental movies, self-guided imagery, real-life movies, and recorded and laminated affirmations.

Practice meditation daily. Meditation can increase your focus and concentration, increase your power of concentration and attune the brain to receive the answers, tools and resources needed to fulfill that vision.

We need a vision for our lives, or else nothing we do means anything. No matter what your current circumstances, if you can imagine something better for yourself, you can create it.

The Laws of Attraction at Work

“Nothing can prevent your picture from coming into concrete form except the power which gave it birth—yourself.” —Genevieve Behrend

Laws of AttractionIn the quantum universe, there are no accidents. There are no coincidences. Every particle and every action is accounted for. We live in a universe of absolute precision.

The world of thoughts and ideas, of human ingenuity, creativity and enterprise, is not separate from the world of chemistry and gravity and fields and forests. There are no separate rules—they all come from the same rulebook. The laws that govern the movement of subatomic particles and solar systems, also govern our thoughts and feelings, families and careers.

This fundamental truth is all too easy to forget as we go about out daily routines, because we seem to live in two worlds—the seen and the unseen—the world we can touch, taste and see, and the intangible world that lies hidden away behind the curtain of our senses.

The events and circumstances of your business take place in the seen world. It is the immense, hidden portion of the iceberg that most of us are unaware of 99 percent of the time, while the tangible, material world we think of as “real” is only the miniscule tip that juts above the surface of our conscious awareness.

What sunk the Titanic was the hidden part of the iceberg that nobody saw coming, the part beneath the surface. And that is the part that sinks every business that ends up closing its doors.

The creative process through which the unseen world gives birth to the circumstances and events of our lives is the Law of Attraction. There are actually a number of distinct principles at work within the Law of Attraction. Here are six ways to put the laws to work for you:

 

  1. Everything starts as an idea. Everything in nature, every phenomenon starts in the universe, starts as an idea. Everything you manifest in your life follows the precise same pathway, from idea to physical form. We create from the nonphysical level, turning that which we can’t see, into that which we can.
  2. Realize you are at cause in your life. Science has shown us that the principle of cause and effect applies to the mechanics of everything, including our thoughts. Things don’t randomly happen to you. Realize you are making things happen or not happen. Commit to being at cause and don’t blame external factors.
  3. Understand how resonance is at work. Resonance, from the Latin meaning “to sound again” is simply the transfer of vibration from one medium to another. Thoughts held clearly and strongly enough can cause events in the physical world to happen.
  4. Your dream is within the seed. The seed of your business is your vision. This is the groundwork for every successful business. Your vision needs to be clear and strong.
  5. Be purposeful, patient and active. These three concepts enable the Laws of Attraction, Gestation and Action to work together. You will save yourself years of trial and error, and manifest what you want in your life and business much faster than you’ve ever created anything before.
  6. Get clarity. The more clarity you create around your business in every aspect, from its largest objectives to the particulars in everyday actions, the more you harness the mind-boggling power of the quantum field to do your bidding and bring that idea into reality.

 

The Answer for you: The universe is ready and willing to give you what you want, once you are clear on what it is.
