Why Affirmations Don’t Always Work

If you are reading this you’ve probably been in a similar situation that I have experienced. You have learned or even created your own affirmations to repeat them over and over and well some how they didn’t create what you wanted. Do affirmations not really work? Well the truth of the matter is way deeper than just saying an affirmation. There has to be a sure and deep belief that these affirmations are in fact true.

Here are some things to consider on making affirmations honestly come to life in your life!

1. Mirror work: One of our most challenging and yet rewarding tasks is to look in the mirror while saying our affirmations. And why not say something kind to yourself every time you pass the mirror? This will build self confidence and love while reprogramming us to think beautiful thoughts. Inner beauty becomes outer beauty. It is a fundamental law.

2. Let go of the Resistance to Change: How much are you holding on to the dead past? Can you honestly let go of the passed? What from the past is creating a pattern in your life?

I had a huge revelation when I realized an event in my teens had created a pattern in me that was other than self serving. When I was able to identify that, I felt sad at first and then I was so happy that I figured it out with the assistance of my companion/source/god.I was then able to do the work to move forward.

When I was able to RELEASE this and FORGIVE all involved including myself, I no longer was holding myself back and then was able to create a new successful pattern. Thank Goddess! Take Action Now.

And here is the most profound reason why affirmations don’t always work.
We must be willing to release the need to suffer, to be unworthy, to self sabotage etc. Until we unravel the ball of yarn we don’t open up to these affirmations on a deep sub conscious level. We must first release the need to allow these patterns to control us, let go and open up to the divine truth. We created this for our own good so we could take back our soul power.  Here is a way to start doing this NOW.  When you feel resistance or anger or any “negative” feeling/self talk. Say to yourself in that moment, I release the NEED to hold on to this pain or I release the NEED to engage in self defeating actions etc. Whatever it is just release it in the moment and come into your power as a soul.  You will feel the difference and immediately start to shift out of victim mode into conscious mode.

Next, to receive positive affirmations we must be in a peaceful and open space. Let’s take a moment to get in this space together.

First let your body relax, take a deep breath and watch as everything begins to soften. Start at the crown of your head and take time to go through each area of the body to relax it deeply. Most people have major tension in the face, jaw, neck, shoulders, heart & belly. Just surrender and let go. Give yourself the love right now and this is the time to open up to these beautiful, life changing affirmations.  Keep breathing long, slow and deep. Release the body and the mind automatically begins to release and soften. Whatever tension is in the body is always going on in the mind. Let it go and Shine.

It all begins with a seed, a seed in your consciousness.  When you start growing something in your garden lets say hibiscus flowers for example. How do they begin? They begin as a seed. Do they look anything like the beautiful, deep and rich colored flowers they become? No, but yet you still have faith and you think and say: “oh wow I am so excited to see the flowers in a few weeks, there will be many of them and they will be beautiful.” It’s the same with whatever you desire, have faith in your seeds.

I really am grateful for the work of Louise Hay as this post was inspired by her. Let me know in the comments below how you have allowed positive affirmations to rock your world! Comment below, let me know how you are doing! With Love and Blessings to you. And once again, thanks for stopping by the Sacred Backyard!

Note: Worry is Fear…don’t let this control your life. Realize you are an authentic creator. Rejoice in your uniqueness. Unleash your soul power and start unraveling the yarn. Then open up to the truth of your greatness. Take the reigns of your beautiful mind.    There are many ways to create your amazing life, this is just one way that really spoke to me. Love you!

Nourish Thy Self.

Nourishing thy self is an inside job. Then the manifestation is seen in the outer world.

If you have ever experienced the feelings of self criticism, judgement or resentment then this post might just be for you.  Who has not gone through these feelings at one point or another?  Is it our fault? Placing blame on ourselves or others doesn’t do much good rather the question to ask might be, how can I feel better, how can I change my route in life to a better one?  Well, this question puts the power back into your own hands, this allows you to be the Creator and the Director of your life experience.  This allows you to hold yourself accountable for what you choose to think, feel, say and do. This also holds you accountable for what you put on and into your body.images

In order to experience self nourishment we start from the inside out. We clear away the debris, we might sit in meditation, we might embark on a body cleanse, we might start reading a great book about Self Love and Acceptance. Whatever it is we must take responsibility for the way we treat ourselves.  As we begin to trust ourselves with self love and respect we begin to experience more trust in all its forms. First, we must trust ourselves knowing we speak highly and think highly of our actions, our body, our thoughts. If we make a mistake or do something that we are not happy with we can make adjustments and move forward.  To nourish ourselves with nutrient rich foods, to move our bodies and stretch them in ways that make our minds flexible and spines timeless, and to clean up our environment and make our living space harmonious and joyous are all profound ways to shift our lives into Self Respect & Nourishment.

Buddha & Me

When we nourish ourselves with food that we know deep down are healing and restorative to our body we are practicing a form of self love and respect.   We are giving ourselves nutrient rich food so we can become more powerful, more radiant, more dynamic and more of our true identity. I have mentioned in past posts how incredible it is too forage and eat wild edibles because I feel it brings back a strength to the body that commercially foods just do not possess.  Wild foods must live and thrive in conditions that are always fluctuating and changing.  They become stronger, wiser and more confident for it.  This is self nourishment.

To me a form of Self Sabotage would be eating things that I know are not nourishing and good for me, self sabotage looks like judging myself for a past mistake or criticizing myself for not being good enough.  All of these things to me are forms of self sabotage. We are influenced by programming from advertising and media on a daily basis.  I feel we can powerfully live in our environment and protect ourselves from these acts.  It does take courage and it certainly does take commitment. And as Yogi Ji says, “Keep up and You Will be Kept Up.”  So, with that said, what can we do to protect ourselves from sabotage? We can practice Yoga and Mantra, we can Meditate, we can learn to eat with conscious awareness, we can speak from our heart instead of our head.  All of these things help us to keep up with the changing times. The Aquarian Age is here, the Age of the Soul.  So we must keep up if we want to experience all the joy and fulfillment that comes with this Age.

images-1When we make the decision to look at ourselves in the mirror and remind ourselves of our great beauty, our magical wonder, our authentic spirit we attract more people into our lives that appreciate us for who we really are.  We magnetize those that we are most in alignment with and so the flow goes….. This is Self Nourishment.

When we choose to clean up our environment , clean up the clutter, care for our belongings  we are living in a state of Self Nourishment.

Choosing to nourish ourselves is the single most important thing we can do for ourselves and for the world.  We can begin to see the power these acts have on our life as we change our thoughts we change our world. Look at the word WORLD, it has WORD in it. We are influenced by the word we choose to speak. Let us start listening to our chosen words.

As Yogi Ji says:  “Communication is very misunderstood by all human beings.  When you are angry. When you are emotional. When you are hurt, When you are insecure or When you are into an Ego Trip that’s when you feel you must talk. And that is why you mess up.”  Let us Speak with encouragement, upliftment and positivity. ~ From The Flow of Eternal Power.

**And as a Special Side Note here are the The Five Sutras of the Aquarian Age as Taught By Yogi Bhajan

1. Recognize that the other person is you.
2. There is a way through every block.
3. When the time is on you, start, and the pressure will be off.
4.  Understand through compassion or you will misunderstand the times.
5. Vibrate the cosmos, and the cosmos shall clear the path.
