Affirmation Tips: Listening to Your Affirmations

Hey, guys!

IMG_1475I’ve been writing, recording, and using affirmations for many years. I’ve found that listening to affirmations in an audio format is the most effective way for me to add them to my busy schedule and get maximum benefit from them.

Affirmations are still among the most powerful ways to shift your mindset in positive ways. Yes! Action is required, but empowered thinking is still the fuel for the action.

Here are my tips using affirmations.

  • Listen passively – have you ever had that experience where you didn’t think you were listening to the words of a song or a commercial and you suddenly know them? That’s how listening passively to audio affirmations works. You listen while you’re living your life. You may not think you’re listening, but your subconscious is. With enough repetition they become conscious.
  • Listen meditatively – audio affirmations are great when used as a guided meditation. Listen consciously and with intent. Absorb and embody the words. Soon they become part of who you are.
  • Add them to your workout playlist – workout time or running time can be personal development time. Sure, you like listening to your favorite music, but mix the affirmations in with the songs. Physical exertion is an amazing way to help the affirmation impact your consciousness.
  • Listen in the morning – affirmations are an amazing way to start your day withe positive energy and vision. Listen to affirmations that inspire rather than talk radio that demotivates.
  • When you need them – play your affirmations on the way to a sales call, an interview, while you work in the garden, or in the locker room before the big game. Power words right before you face a situation can power up your game!
  • While you sleep – if your spouse or partner will allow you, listen to affirmations while you sleep. This is the unconscious working at its best. No conscious rejection. You’re simply letting better thoughts fill your mind.

I’ve been doing this for more than 25 years. I’ve seen these techniques work over and over again. If you need some affirmations to listen download MP3 from my growing library or listen to them on my YouTube Channel.

I’d love to hear your experiences and how this works for you!

Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

Always Follow Your Bliss Affirmation

Today’s Affirmation:

I always follow my bliss!

joseph_campbell_4The late mythologist Joseph Campbell coined this phrase to describe his vision of what our life here on this planet is all about.

He wrote, “If you do follow your bliss you put yourself on a kind of track that has been there all the while, waiting for you, and the life that you ought to be living is the one you are living. Follow your bliss and don’t be afraid, and doors will open where you didn’t know they were going to be.”

He presented it as a kind of simplified mission statement designed to awaken us to to remember our potential and pursue it.

Most of you had dreams at one point in your life. There was a career you dreamed of or a passion that we really wanted to pursue. At some point, you lost touch with that dream. “Reality” intervened. You started a family, you began a career, and your life became so busy that your dream began to fade away.

The more time that went by, the more unrealistic your dream appeared. You had “responsibilities” and your dream seemed a little selfish in the face of them.

Maybe the time has now come to “follow your bliss!” Maybe your life has cleared a bit and there is time to revisit your priorities, or perhaps life on the cubicle farm has become so painful that you are ready to make a change.

This article, When Offbeat Dreams Become Careers, appeared on the Yahoo! front page back in 2007. It is about people just like you who decided to follow their bliss.

You can do it just like they did! If you can’t drop everything and pursue your dream right this minute, OK. But there is nothing to stop you from reacquainting yourself with it or taking a few positive steps in preparation today. Take one step towards your bliss today and another step tomorrow. Each day you will be a bit closer to chasing your dream.

In the meantime, you might also find your days more enjoyable and fulfilling knowing that you are taking positive steps towards achieving your dream.

Find your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.

Are You Aligned with Your True Power?

Today’s Affirmation:

Today and every day, life happens THROUGH me not TO me!

Sitting on breakawayAre you aligned with your true power? Many people believe that life and the world happen TO them. This is a very common and a very disempowering belief. To believe that you are acted upon by forces absolutely beyond your control, leaves you with no recourse but submission. Over time, you feel frustrated and increasingly helpless. You come to believe in luck more than action as force that governs good fortune in life.

Today’s affirmation is message to you. Hear it loud and clear. Some of your minds will immediately begin looking for the reasons why it isn’t true. I would encourage you look for the reasons why it is. What’s at stake? Nothing less than your ability to direct your life and achieve your dreams. Pretty big stakes to leave to fate.

Bliss Affirmations – The Affirmation Spot for Wednesday Septemeber 14, 2011

Today’s Thought

“Follow your bliss and the universe will open doors where there were only walls.”

~ Joseph Campbell
Bliss is a powerful concept and one that this famous quote by Joseph Campbell has caused to resonate in the minds of the current generations of humans living on planet Earth. How to define bliss? Well, this is one of those words where dictionary definitions are simply inadequate. Your bliss is where you feel at home. It’s your sweet spot. It’s those moments and situations where you *know* you are aligned with your purpose. It’s that life that wakes you in the middle of the night and says, “Come live me!”

Today I am sharing a few bliss affirmations to help you live your bliss.

  • As I follow my bliss, my bliss starts chasing me!
  • Prosperity and happiness are mine when I find the courage to truly follow my bliss!
  • Following my bliss can pay the bills as well any job.
  • Today and every day my bliss is my compass for success and happiness.
  • I never miss when I follow my bliss!
  • I do what I love and find my bliss. I keep doing what I love and I live my bliss. I give myself completely to what I love and I become my bliss!
  • Bliss builds in my world today with every conscious decision I make!
  • Today I find my bliss in the sweet spot where my talents and my passion merge.
  • Following my bliss creates magic in my life.
  • I am a bliss magnet!
  • I follow my bliss! I experience my bliss! I become my bliss!

Stay inspired! You are the engine of your dreams!

Courage Affirmations – The Affirmation Spot for Monday September 12, 2011

Today’s quote:

“Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage.”
~ Anais Nin

Today I am featuring some affirmations on courage. We are human beings and our courage ebbs and flows based on how we feel in a given moment or based on situations. However, courage is a fire that can burn through fears and doubts, when activated. Each of us has a practically untapped reservoir of courage.

How does the shyest kid in the class suddenly commit an act of utter bravery to save his friends in battle? How does the single mother overcome all the reasons she shouldn’t succeed and succeed anyway? How does the business person have the courage put his or her idea out there in a world that shreds new ideas?

The answer is courage.

Here are few affirmations that I hope will tap your inner hero.

  1. I think from courage! I speak from courage! Today I act from courage!
  2. Today I am filled with the courage to be the person I came to the planet to be!
  3. I have the courage, wisdom, and strength to thrive no matter what today sends my way.
  4. If I must stand alone with my ideals, then SO BE IT!
  5. Today I run to where I have failed before to begin again.
  6. Today I courageously challenge my unknowns and reap big rewards!
  7. Today I have the courage to face up to the people and circumstances in my life.
  8. Even when life is tough, I am courageous!
  9. Breathing in, I feel my courage growing. Breathing out, act from a place of courage.

Follow your bliss! Experience your bliss! Become your bliss!

Unique, Worthy Person Affirmation – The Affirmation Spot for Wednesday July 27, 2011

Today’s affirmation:

I am a unique and worthy person. I require no more justification than that to be who I am.

Being Who You Are

Everyone has an opinion on who you should be. Your mother, your co-workers, your spouse, the church, the government, your friends; they all are constantly trying to mold you into their vision of who they think you should be. Obviously, there are times when it is wise to listen to sound advice.

By and large, however, defining who you are is your right and your responsibility. Giving up that right to other people’s expectations is disempowering and leads to unhappiness.

Starting today take back your right to be who you are. You are fully capable and fully prepared to create your own vision of you. It is your “divine right” as a human being to make those decisions for yourself.

The opinions will still come – fast and furious – but you’ll be too busy enjoying the real you to care.

Follow your bliss! Achieve your bliss! Become your bliss!
