I remember someone saying to me a long time ago that the brain has a drawer labelled “tomorrow” that never gets opened.
Every time it comes to tomorrow it is today and tomorrow goes back to being a time in the future, not now.
Because the brain in it’s functioning tends towards quite literal while the being behind the brain tends towards being quite intuitive.
Or whatever the reason it happens doesn’t matter much if the drawer never gets opened.
So when we affirm things in a distant time we are throwing them into a draw that has a greater possibility of not being opened than of being opened.
So “it” can possibly never come neither does “will be” – or “try” for that matter but that’s another post….
Now I know that there are some who say affirmative things that contain “tomorrow” and “will be” and they seem to get what they want so it can make you doubt your own evidence that for you to say those words doesn’t work because it hasn’t.
But I would say that in those cases there is a stronger knowing that it is happening for them now behind their affirmation than the affirmation itself. That knowing exists as “feeling of having the thing now” versus the “feeling” of not having the thing and wanting it.
While still others act so much as if “it” is now that “now” can’t help but being “it”. Yes I did just write that!
Be all that as it may your proof is in your pudding. What is happening or not happening for you.
The lessons of the lives of others should serve to inspire us to create our own experiential proof rather than try to live out their lives – as some of us end up doing when we constantly repeat their stories.
For this 5 minute exercise you will make a point to repeat the phrases below as many times as you can.
Say them with passion, drama, feeling.
Try to connect feelings to the words – do this like if you were an actor practicing for the part of your life…
I know, usually at 2 or 3 minutes my short attention span mechanism kicks in and I cringe in the form of mental spewage of things like “this is crazy”, “this kind of thing only works for them”, “Ugh! this is soooo stupid!!”…
But trust me here this works, rather I should say trust yourself and trust the universe – just pile through the spew and you will get to the magnificent other side.
Do this in the morning and right before you go to bed at night. The idea is to drill into your subconscious that you are this thing now. Because you are this now – you have just been waiting for you to catch up 🙂
Those who know, know where this comes from and I am not claiming to be an original author of these knock-offs of the “promises”.
I am just presenting them to you in a way that you can incorporate into your morning routine and get some amazing results.
OK – set your timer and ready.. set.. go!
I am good at paying attention to the details of the work I do on myself and in my life.
I am amazed at how far I have come.
I now know a new sense of freedom and I am happier than I’ve ever been.
I do not regret my past nor do I shut the door on it and I am free from the need to scream it from the rooftops.
I understand serenity and I am at peace with myself and the world.
I now use the lessons of my past to inspire and help others because I see, now, that my story is inspiring.
Today I demonstrate my care about others through my actions and words.
I am a changed being for the good and I can see the good in life, in others and myself.
I choose to love and embrace others.
I am connected to an infinite source of supply and no longer fear economic insecurity.
I am divinely guided and intuitively know how to handle situations which used to baffle me.
I know, now, that the God of my understanding is doing for me what I could not do for myself.
When I do this I am left with a vibrating feeling throughout my body and I know it is going to be a wonderful day.
Let me knowhow this goes for you.
