The power of Affirmations - Part 4.

If you say "I don't want to be sick anymore," this is not an affirmation for good health. You have to state clearly what you do want. "I accept perfect health now."

  "I hate this car" does not bring you a wonderful new car because you're not being clear. Even if you do get a new car, in a short time you'll probably hate it, because that's what you've been affirming. If you want a new car, then say something like this: "I have a beautiful new car that suits all of my needs."
  You'll hear some people saying, "Life sucks!" (which is a terrible affirmation). Can you imagine what experiences that statement will attract to you? Of course, it isn't Life that sucks, it's your thinking that sucks. That thought will help you feel terrible. And when you feel terrible, no good can come into your life.
  Don't waste time arguing for your limitations: poor relationships, problems, illnesses, poverty, and so on. The more you talk about the problem, the more you anchor it in place. Don't blame others for what's seemingly wrong in your life - that's just another waste of time. Remember, you're under the laws of your own consciousness, your own thoughts, and you attract specific experiences to you as a result of the way you think.
 When you change your thinking process, then everything in your life will also change. You'll be amazed and delighted to see how people, places things and circumstances can change. Blame is just another negative affirmation, and you don't want to waste your precious thoughts on it. Instead, learn to turn your negative affirmations into positive ones. For instance:

I hate my body                          BECOMES     I love and appreciate my body. 

I never have enough money       BECOMES      Money flows into my life in an abundant way. 

I'm tired of being sick.               BECOMES     I allow my body to return to ist natural, vibrant health.

I'm too fat.                                BECOMES     I honor my body and take good care of it.

Nobody loves me.                     BECOMES    I radiate love, and love fills my life.

I'm not creative.                         BECOMES    I am discovering talents I did not know I had.

I'm stuck in a lousy job.             BECOMES    Wonderful new doors are opening for me all the time.

I'm not good enough.      BECOMES    I am in the process of positive change, and I deserve the best.

 This doesn't mean that you have to be worried about every thought you think. When you  first begin to make the changeover and really pay attention to your thoughts, you'll be horrified to realize how negative much of your thinking has been. So when you catch a negative thought, just think to yourself,  That is an old thought; I no longer choose to think that way. Then find a positive thought to replace it as quickly as you can. Remember, you want to feel dood as much as possible. Thoughts of bitterness, resentment, blame, and guilt make you feel miserable. And that's a habit you really want to release.
  Another barrier to allowing positive affirmations to work is feeling "not good enough" - that is, you feel that you don't deserve to have good in your life. If that's your issue then you could begin with Chapter 8 ( Self-Esteem). You could see how many of the self-esteem affirmations you can memorize, and then repeat them often. Doing so will help change that "worthless" feeling you might be carrying around, to one of self-worth. Then watch your positive affirmations materialize.
