By bringing more awareness into our everyday life through conscious concentration we can reprogram our mind, our subconscious and this will help us change our patterns and ultimately our lives. What is conscious concentration? It is the state of mind in which you realise that you are aware of the specific tasks and activities you are doing at the time. It is something like the Power of Now of Echkart Tolle. To work on constructing this conscious now moment in which we are aware of it and of everything that is surrounding us, we have to understand that we have to manifest more observation, paying attention to details, being attentive to what we see, hear, touch, say and do. By paying close attention to each task without dividing our focus into multiple activities occurring simultaneously, we will improve our concentration as we are teaching it where and how much to focus, which means all our concentration goes to a single uni-dimensional task.
When we are trying this power of now exercise, we must include in our daily routines the affirmations meditation. It’s like a mantra. A daily mantra of sayings we tell our mind. This helps our concentration too, as our mind receives specific thought nutrients that it needs to focus on that. In order for us to reprogram our subconscious mind to positively impact our every day life, we need to understand there are 3 ingredients to making up an affirmation or a mantra.
An affirmation has to have the following 3 ingredients: conscious choice of positive words, clear visualisation and corresponding feeling – emotion which is manifested through an energy.
As Tesla said “To find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration”.
Everything is made up of energy that’s vibrating at a specific frequency. If your subconscious is filled with patterns that are vibrating at a certain frequency and if you could go into your subconscious and create a pattern, infuse it with energy that’s vibrating at a certain frequency, you can attract things of a similar nature to it. That’s how your day to day life gets changed.
So if I go into my subconscious, I repeat an affirmation which has a conscious choice of positive words, clear visualisation, I infuse a feeling into it (what does it feel like) and it starts to vibrate in my subconscious at that frequency, now it attracts anything of a similar vibration or a similar frequency towards it.
Energy doesn’t know to discriminate between what’s good and what’s not good for you. It’s just energy. So anything of a similar frequency gets drawn to you. If you know how your subconscious works and you know how to program it using affirmations with conscious choice of positive words, clear visualisation and a corresponding feeling (feeling being the most important component because it is the actual energy that attracts) then you can bring into your life everything you want.
What does conscious choice of positive words mean?
It should consists of something that I could compare to the SMART objectives. Specific, measurable, actionable with results in time. Let’s take some examples: I am powerfully creative and I successfully express my creativity through meaningful writing that my audience is telling they enjoy. or I feel blessed with everything that the universe is providing to me and I receive all good from all life opportunities. or Something beautiful is on my way and I know I am attracting good fortune, abundance and blessings for me and my family now. or if you remember my last post? Christie Marie Sheldon had a lovely affirmation when gathering the Light into ourselves and healing our emotional wounds through the saying I clear and transmute my feeling of not good enough/ my feeling of something across all time, dimensions, space and realities. A conscious choice of positive words.
What does clear visualisation refer to?
To explain this, I will use the following affirmation: I love apples. When you use “I”, the mind clearly understands it is you who it is referring to, when you use the word “love” again it is a clear word which means nothing but love. But when you use the word “apples” the mind gets confused as it has a lot of things relating to apple: golden apples, gala apples, red apples, etc, itunes, Apple the brand, macbook pro etc. Therefore, clear visualisation is connected to us seeing the image of what we say. Therefore what type of apples do we love? If it’s green, then when you say I love apples, you see a green apple, you imagine it, and your mind instantly gets the point. It will know what you need from it and it will follow your instructions on loving green apples and not red apples, as the command was with “green” through the visualisation process. In our examples, we could imagine something creative expresses physically, such as a piece of art, a viral blog post, a variety of valuable comments appreciating your creative expression and your success which follows that visualised in the form of an award/ a pay rise/ a brand deal/ etc. In the example offered through Christie Marie Sheldon with the Light mantra meditation exercise to heal our chakras (if you had read my blog post) we simply imagine the Light coming into that specific part of the body where we feel those negative emotions and we imagine how it disperse and evaporates all that bad stuff.
What does corresponding feeling – emotion – energy mean?
This has to do with what does it feel like when you obtain that which you have stated. what does it feel to love green apples? What does it feel to be successful creatively? What does it feel to imagine the Light clearing your blockages? What does it feel to obtain that which you have put into your affirmation? It is a powerful energy that makes you feel blessed. You surely know how you feel or how it would make you feel achieving that affirmation. Energy doesn’t know to discriminate between what’s good and what’s not good for you. It’s just energy. So anything of a similar frequency gets drawn to you. That’s why it is important to infuse our affirmations with the correct positive ENERGY to attract the same level of positive energy.
So if we go into our subconscious, we repeat an affirmation which has a conscious choice of positive words, clear visualisation, we infuse a feeling into it (what does it feel like) and it starts to vibrate in our subconscious at that frequency, now it attracts anything of a similar vibration or a similar frequency towards it. And that’s how you reprogram your subconscious mind to positively impact your daily activities and obviously, in the end, your life and lifestyle.
