Create Your Affirmations
At this point of the course you should now understand what your vision is in all 8 areas of your life. So now it’s time to use the power of Affirmations to ensure you attract this into your life.
We have included a worksheet with a list of example affirmations you can use in the resource section above to give you some ideas. By all means use these examples if you feel they represent you and what you want from life.
It’s also a great idea to try and create some of your own using the technique of writing down a list of negatives, things that are holding you back and stopping you from pushing forward in life. Once you have the list of negatives just flip those around to positive statements in the present tense.
Just to repeat that, make you affirmations PRESENT TENSE! You should not be writing and saying things like ‘I want to be in a happy and healthy relationship’. Instead what you should be saying is something like ‘I am in a happy and healthy relationship’…
To begin with it will be hard to remember all affirmations so make sure you record them. We have included a tab on the Life Planner Doc you have been using for the past few weeks, so go and record all of your affirmations in there so you always have somewhere to refer back to.
Something else you could also do is once you have all your affirmations written down you could record yourself saying them out loud with conviction and belief they are true. Then play this back to yourself on your phone or whatever recording device you decide to use on a daily basis.
Something else to remember is your affirmations will constantly be getting updated, some will remain on your list for years, or even indefinitely… Whilst others will be added when a specific event in your life is coming up and you need some affirmations to help you overcome and achieve these specific things.
There is no hard and fast rule for the number of affirmations to have however do your best to have 10 or more. To begin with this is just a 1 minute practice but as time goes on it’s preferred and far more beneficial for that time to increase.
Additionally if you would like to go into a lot more depth on affirmations there is a link to a really good book in the resources section above that talks about Affirmations. Noah St. John actually coined the word ‘Afformations’ hence the book title, and he talks about how to frame and word your affirmations so you can really get you subconscious mind working for you to go out and make these things happen.
