Positive thinking may not work 100% of the time, but negative thinking does.
When I talk to people about using positive affirmations I often encounter comments like, “Well, affirmations are OK, but they just won’t work for me,” or “I could never do that.”
I always think, “Did I just hear you right?” You just used a (negative) affirmation and proved your own point incorrect by demonstrating how successful that affirmation is for you. You believe you can’t do affirmations or that they would never work for you and your affirmation has come true!
Consider this. You think in affirmations all day long. You are constantly molding your experience of the world through a series of can/can’t am/aren’t statements in your mind (a.k.a. positive affirmations or negative affirmations). An affirmation, after all, is only a statement that you can/can’t accomplish something or that you are/aren’t capable.
I love reading articles by folks who say affirmations are a fraud, useless, or self-delusional (more affirmations). The kinds of affirmations you think have a pretty high correlation to the outcomes in your life. When you think in positive affirmations about something, your attitude and your actions fall into line and you generally succeed. When you harbor and express negative affirmations about something failure is almost sure to follow.
Positive affirmations are not magic pills. They don’t change certain laws of physics. They cannot always impact the quantitative, but they can almost always improve the qualitative. For instance, a sixty year-old woman cannot affirm that she is twenty and wake up one morning 20 years old. However, the sixty year-old who affirms that she feels twenty is going to remain happy and active longer than someone who affirms all day how old they are becoming.
So, the questions really are these:
Affirmations are inevitable travelers through your consciousness. They are an autonomic function of your mind that’s been dubbed “self-talk.”
You can’t stop them from appearing and you can’t necessarily change the ones that appear in your mind. However, you CAN control which thoughts you choose to focus on. Remember, “where focus goes, energy flows.”
Whichever you choose, you will experience. Which kind of affirmation do you choose today?
Follow your bliss. Experience your bliss. Become your bliss.
For many Monday is a psychological downer. We were just getting settled into the weekend and now it’s over. For others, it means stopping the things we really want to be doing and going back to the things we must do. Despite all of that, we can still make the most of Monday and get a step ahead of all those just trying to hang on through their Monday.
Here are a few affirmations to get your Monday and your month off to a great start.
A strong start is half the battle. Stay inspired!
It’s a nice thought and a worthy aspiration to be filled with light and love 365/24/7. In realty, unless you have attained a high state of enlightenment, you slip and fall. You release negative vibrations out into the world. It’s OK. It happens. You’re human.
Here’s a way to think about your vibrational contribution without beating yourself up each time you crash to Earth.
In business, there’s a financial statement known as a balance sheet. It’s purpose is to state a company’s assets and liabilities. If the company has more assets than liabilities, it’s solvent. If not, it’s in financial trouble and may go out of business.
The human collective has a vibrational balance sheet consisting of positive vibrations (assets) and negative vibrations (liabilities) that we are all putting out into the world all day every day.
To keep your personal vibrational balance sheet strong and contribute positively to the collective balance sheet, follow this simple rule of thumb.
For every negative you put out into the world, put at least two positives out there. This ensures a strong balance sheet that allows humanity to continue to thrive and evolve on this planet.
