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!

Rooted and Grounded in Love

Being Rooted in Love takes presence power.

When you live in the moment you gain presence power when you live in the dead past you weaken the aura.  What happens when the aura is weakened?  We are susceptible to allowing in dis-ease within the body and other unwanted guests and our life can become a product of a mass consciousness instead of our own creative consciousness.

What can you do to be here now?

  • Do Something that Makes You Happy ( It often brings you to the here and now)
  • Breathe Long, Slow & Deep (the breath is a full on miracle!)
  • Feel your Inner Body while doing any task especially when connecting with another sentient being. (this allows for you to stay connected and rooted to the moment while still keeping your awareness with that person or task.

On a physical level you can cleanse your body & do certain exercises to strengthen your field (the 5 tibetan rites and kundalini yoga exercises).

Building Presence Power

Consuming high vibrational foods increases your presence power and you can enjoy foods that represent the colors of your chakras in order to strengthen a certain area. For example orange foods such as squash & yams are healing for the root chakra and can strengthen the reproductive organs as well. Respectively black foods nourish and strengthen the kidneys. The kidneys must be kept safe, cozy and warm. As they become strong and are at optimal performance the body takes on a loving, confident energy.

Balance your four body system so that you can be more in the present moment. This means checking in with yourself. The four body system includes:

  1. Mental
  2. Emotional
  3. Spiritual
  4. Physical

Maybe today you are more in the spiritual plane then the physical plane. We might take a look at that and take action to balance this energy so that we are fully present. We might in this case do an exercise to root ourselves into the ground. Create a visualization of this action to seed it into your consciousness. We could also go out in nature or do some grounding activities around your home like the dishes.

Rooted in LOVE

So these are just a few ideas. When we truly let go and forgive the dead past or even the imagined future of our mind’s creation we are back in the here and now, grounded and rooted in love.

Forgive yourself right now for not being fully present, give yourself permission to be here now.  You are love and you are presence. Within this space you allow for great transformation.  It is here the power of your gifts are unleashed yet rooted and grounded in love.

It is nice to remember we all have a free will choice, the more we honor other sentient beings free will choices the more we ourselves grow and evolve. We are then given more opportunity and free will choice by the universe. It essentially lightens our body.  Try it, allow everything and everyone around you the free will choice to do, be and say what they are doing. Do it with presence & a whole heart. Once this is integrated into your daily practice your authenticity shines and you are free.

Let Go, Forgive and be rooted in LOVE.
