In today’s ultimate transformation moment, we continue with the power of individual choice as we take a look at the power of positive affirmation.
Many people may recall the statement or Bible verse that says “as a man or woman thinketh in their hearts, so is he or she.”
This statement means that over time, we become what we think. In this moment and in this time right now, we are the culmination of all our previous thoughts. We become what we think.
This is a powerful statement to understand. If we are not fully satisfied with who we are, what we are, and what we’re doing, we can change it. We can become exactly what we want to be by simply changing what we think in regard to ourselves and in all areas of our lives. It is here that the use of affirmation can help.
An affirmation is simply a focused thought. However, there is work and dedication required in the process. Just as you make the decision to exercise or choose to eat right, you must also choose the right thoughts that will produce the results you desire.
To help my clients change or improve their current circumstances, and elevate them to a higher state of being, I recommend that they do the following: 1) Take time everyday to shape the mind with thoughts that will meet their highest expectation of themselves. 2) Identify the expectations for the day. 3) Practice control over your thoughts by simply repeating an affirmed idea several times. 4) Develop this skill by taking two to five minutes, at least three times per day, to repeat an affirmation. It is most beneficial to begin the day with this practice. Repeat the practice at mid-day, then again before going to bed.
The affirmations may be as simple as: “I am successful,” “I am prosperous,” “God loves me,” or “I love and approve of myself.”
Affirmations help us to see ourselves in the state of being what we have chosen to become. We now start to become a culmination of these new thoughts, which in turn allows us all to become more aware of the gifts and blessings that the universe–the God power–has in store for us.
Your daily affirmations, through your constant thoughts, open you up to the needs and desires that dwell in your heart. The things you believe in and you constantly think about, do exist. But you have to put the time and effort into training your mind to believe that your thoughts are tangible and real.
For the next seven days, recite this simple affirmation, several times throughout your day: “God supplies all my needs and desires now.” With concentrated focus in the morning, noon and evening, you may be pleasantly surprised with the changes.
