I know when I began saying positive affirmations, I thought the opposite ‘it won’t work’ (which is an affirmation in itself) or ‘they are not deep enough, even dangerous. ‘Using Positive Affirmations requires learning an intuitive heart opening climate of trust and an inner belief and an intention that is deep in mind, heart, body and soul. The more I found if I sang my affirmation, repeating it with a dance or having friends give me an ‘affirmation bath’ I watched the miracles happen from the universe. Resistance to love, forgiveness and staying on the path to a more enlightened way, come in many guises. I know I can be ‘tricky’ with my criticism and wanting immediate results. I needed to be innocent as a child and wise as a sage to know the power of my words. In the past I wanted to make everything complex, it was a form of protection if the affirmation went wrong.
That’s why looking into a mirror shows me whether I really mean the affirmation. My inner eye reveals my real belief and intention. It also reveals my old habits of thinking like a survivor of old conditioning. The inner discipline of love requires words from a spiritual tongue that no longer fears, doubts or blames, or is worried by what others think. The universe tests us to really see whether our intention comes from fear or love. My favourite affirmation at present is: “I radiate love wherever I go.” It is simple and hums in my heart. My mind however, can complicate this powerful thought. Now I laugh at how funny I am at not deserving the experience of “radiating love wherever I go!”
