Using Affirmations and Visualizations to Get What You Want


If you have found your way to my blog, you must be “in to” self help, self improvement and personal development.  Or, you are my friends and family checking out what I am up to today.  Either way, I am glad you are here!

If you are a person who enjoys self improvement, you have no doubt heard about affirmations and visualizations.  Our goal with self improvement is to better or “enrich” our lives.  I am sure that you have discovered that you are happier, healthier and are better at manifesting your dreams and goals if you thinking positive thoughts.  It keeps you in a positive vibration.  Since everything is energy and everything vibrates, we will attract positive things if we are vibrating in a positive way.

Some people will tell you that “thinking positive” is a bunch of bunk.  But, have you ever met someone that dwells in the negative all day long?  Are they happy?  Are they prosperous?  Are they manifesting their dreams and goals?  I would say no to all of the that.  So, if we know that thinking better thoughts gets us what we want, how do we go about doing that?  This is a very negative world.  Negativity sells.  Being involved in negativity can be like watching a car wreck on the side of the road.  Some how, our heads keep swiveling in that direction.

One of my favorite quotes from Albert Einstein is “Imagination is more important than knowledge.”  How can we use our imagination to create the world we want?  The best way is through affirmations and visualizations.  Here are a few tips on making powerful affirmations and visualizations.

Your Affirmations and Visualizations Should Be in the Present tense Only

The most powerful aspect of our mind is our subconscious mind.  It runs the show!  That is where our beliefs are stored.  “What we see and believe we will achieve.”  Getting to our subconscious mind can be a bit tricky. It doesn’t think things out, it just runs the programing you have installed in it. 

To reach your subconscious mind with affirmations and visualizations you must word it in present tense such as, I am so happy and grateful that money now comes to me in abundance from multiple streams of income evey day.  Notice the present tense of “I am” and “now:.

Use Words Your Subscious Can Relate To

For instance, many people use the word “flow” when they are using an affirmation regarding money.  Your subconscious might not relate to money as flowing.  It relates to rivers and streams flowing, but money? 

Another area that affirmations and visualizations can become ineffective is if you are trying to affirm something that is too far outside of your subconscious beliefs.  If you are only making $25,000 a year, it might be very hard for your subconscious to believe when you tell it you are making one million dollars this year.  Your affirmation must be believable to your subconscious or it will throw it out.  It won’t matter how many times you hammer it with your affirmation, if it is too outside the realm of possibilities your subconscious will turn a deaf ear to it.  Instead, you could use a challenge of $50,000 or $75,000 this year.  If a million dollars a year is your goal start out a little smaller and build up to it as you achieve your monetary goals.  You will intuitively know when your are shooting too high because your conscious mind says, “no way, I don’t believe that.”

My husband always tells me that “men think in pictures” which is true for everyone.  If you want to reach your subconscious mind to have it help you get what you want, pictures are an excellent way.  I have always believed in dream boards or vision boards.  They should be where you will see them several times every day and can ponder the images on that board.  This may sound odd, but our dream board is in our bathroom right in front of the toilet.  It is a great way to multitask!

I spend a lot of time on the computer, as you can imagine.  I have stumbled across something that I am excited about.  It is called Mind Movies.  It is a way to design your very own visualization mind movie that you can view as many times a day as you want.  It is filled with your images, your dreams, and your goals.  Wow!  How powerful is that?  They have even invented a way to run it in a subliminal manner so your subconscious can be accessing it even when your conscious mind is working on other projects.  It is amazing.  I know when I look at my mind movie it pumps me up!  They are even giving way free 6 premade mind movies that you can download and try out it out for yourself!  Check it out here!
