When the philosophy behind positive affirmations is explained, it is really easy to see why so many people practice this method every day of their lives. It becomes habit forming, and when one goal is achieved, you find yourself moving onto another goal.
The philosophy is really simple. You have two levels of absorbing, retaining and reacting to information. The first level is called the ‘ conscious mind’ and the second is called the ‘subconscious mind’.
I like to think of the ‘conscious’ mind as the ‘surface’. It takes things at face value and issues an answer based on that instant information.
The ‘subconscious’ mind however, is the ‘deeper’ part of the mind that we unconsciously tell things to and it reacts emotionally by the information we are constantly feeding it.
For instance, if we tell ourselves often enough that we are gross and ugly, that is what our subconscious would absorb and we would see ourselves in this vein. However, if we tell ourselves that we are fit, healthy and glowing, our subconscious leads us to believe that this is true and we naturally feel this way whether we are or not.
By constantly repeating positive affirmations about something we desire, we can in effect ‘re-program’ how we think about ourselves. This positive attitude will then attract positive things back to you (you may have heard of ‘The law of attraction’).
There are a couple of rules of thumb that you will need to follow. First be absolutely definite about what it is you want. Talk about the desire as if you are already in possession of it. For example, instead of ‘I want to be a millionaire’ you might want to say ‘I own a million dollar house with a swimming pool etc and a red Porche 911with…….
Be sure to be specific. Describe the details of the house, the spec of the car and the amount of money you have. The more precise you are, the more real it will seem and the quicker things will come to you.
You need to be disciplined and practice your positive affirmations every day. Feel and believe what you are saying or thinking and you will soon see major changes to yourself and your life.
