I received a question about how to make affirmations, goals and mantras work “better”, which stimulated me to write a bit on this subject. The answer goes beyond the scope of what was asked in the question.
From my other articles or teleseminars, you’ll know my emphasis of focusing on the feeling of what you are doing (and wanting); that is the indicator of your vibration about it – and being a vibrational match to what you want is how you let it into your life. If you are not connecting with your feelings, you’re not evoking your spirit, which is what we’re here to do after all, aren’t we?
What many people are not aware of when they use goals, affirmations, mantras, visualisation, or anything else, is that it is not about what you use, but it is ALWAYS about your vibration. When you are looking to make Law of Attraction work for you, it is about you and your vibration. What will work for you best will be that which raises your vibration the best, in that moment. There are times you use a fork, there are times you use a spoon; similarly, you can use different techniques for different things.
“It is about the vibrational relationship between where you are and your desires. Your emotions are the indicator of that relationship, and what you need to be doing to be closing the gap.”
This is something that I tell my clients and guide them with. When you are looking to use a technique, it is just a tool for you to work with your vibration, as is everything else – actually, as is everything else in life. In your experiences in life, you make choices and preferences and decisions – you are always moulding and adapting your vibration in all of these instances. There is no moment in your existence when you are not influencing your vibration (for one reason, that is what you are: a physical extension of who you are on a deeper level). Every thought that you are thinking, even the ones not in your conscious awareness, are shaping your vibration and what is coming into your life.
There is so much I can say about techniques, and oftentimes I do, especially in the teleseminars. On the question of goals, affirmations and mantras, here are a few quick tips about them:
1 – Does it feel good when you think about the goal etc? If not, why do you have it as a goal? Because others want you to have it? Ensure it is because you feel good about it.
2 - If it feels good, how can you tweak the goal (or affirmation or mantra or whatever you are using) so that it feels better? Can you think of something more to this goal that you can add? Something else? More specificity? A different colour? More belief in what you can have? What ways can it feel even better?
3 – If it’s an affirmation or mantra (i.e. “words”), there are certain words we have which are emotionally loaded. How about “money”, or “soulmate” or “sex” for example. Find the words that you have that feel the best for you, relative to what you are wanting, and put them in your affirmation or mantra. Use modifiers to make it feel even better – words that make it feel even better, eg “my palatial mansion”, “my beautiful car”, “the woman/man of my dreams“, “deep peace” etc.
4 – Mantras can be different things to different people. For some, they may be something they repeat to “get” something (such as a goal). For others, they may use mantras to create a peaceful mind and be in the moment – it is more ‘state’ oriented than ‘goal’ oriented. For example, they may repeat something whilst doing breathing exercises to orient themselves in their now. If this is the case, then be aware of this and choose the words that best orient you in your now and your attention in the direction that you would like to be going.
5 – The goal which you visualise or affirm is relative to where you are at, vibrationally. As you grow vibrationally and get closer to it, it can mean and feel differently. Pay attention to your feelings. You are an expanding being, and as you grow and expand, focus and include the things that feel best to you – similar to as mentioned above about making it feel better and better.
